Why Lovely & Ludicrous?

Backtrack to 2011: I was a senior in high school about to graduate, I wasn’t quite sure about which college I was going to go to, and I was one who devoured fashion & lifestyle blogs and magazines religiously. The summer after I graduated, I created my own personal blog (originally through blogspot). I was not quite sure what I was going to post on it, and honestly, was not dedicated enough to it. My first year in college I had my most posts, a total of 10, and it dwindled further from there. In spring 2016, one of my new year’s resolutions was to write more and I thought it would be a great exercise to do this publicly on my blog. Before importing my work for blogspot, I did nuke and pave what was there originally that I did not think would work with my new vision of my personal blog.

One philosophy I always strived to maintain was based off of an inspirational quote I read one day on tumblr (these were the very early days of Pinterest so Tumblr was the way to go to bring visual images together). The quote was about how to have a lovely day. It conveyed to me that your day would be great if you made it great, and it reminded me that the small things always make the difference in everyday life. In order to remind myself that I wanted to have Lovely as part of my blog title. Being a word and literature buff I knew I wanted an alliteration title, since they always seem so catchy, but the struggle to find the right “L” word proved to be a feat for high school me. I settled on Ludicrous, defined as so foolish, unreasonable, or out of place as to be amusing; ridiculous. Life is ludicrous- you cannot predict it, and you just do your bet to work with it. I want my life to be lovely and ludicrous.
