Dude, I have been feeling so uninspired lately. Maybe you’ve noticed. I haven’t been posting as often as I have in the past. In all honesty, since I’ve moved and been dealing with some serious anxiety issues I feel like I haven’t been myself! (Does winter do that to anyone else?)
More recently I’ve been feeling better and getting my life in check.
But in lieu of getting back to being me here are 30 things I want to try to remember my inner goth kid or simply just to find my way back to having an inspired lifestyle!
x Try out a new makeup look. Whether that’s a smokey eye or a complete zombie face paint.
x Go to a live show! A little while ago I saw The Cure live! It made me love them so much more.
x Write the ultimate 80s mixtape.
x Start getting hype for Halloween! (No matter what time of year it is!)
x Check out what the latest Goth brands are throwing out. Kill Star, Iron Fist, Disturbia and so on.
