I forgot again! On the 6th of March it was katherineisawesome.com’s fourth birthday. Four god damn years. Do you know how long that is? Four years is older than my friend Ben’s kid, and he can walk and talk and operate an iPad. By those measurements, this blog should be able to make bloody emergency calls and ride a fricken bike. Four years. Wow.
So. It’s been a rough road getting to this fourth birthday. I loved it, I hated it, I was productive, I was unmotivated. I cried. Several times. But then I also got a lot of pretty sweet opportunities. Last year I told myself that this year I was going to throw a bunch of money (YOLO!) into a fourth birthday party for my blog. It was going to be prom themed and there was going to be punch and mini burgers and fries and a live covers band and a photobooth. Obviously this didn’t happen because of my financial circumstances (read: I don’t have a real job aka. I don’t have a regular income, aka. I haven’t been paid in a month) and because I just plain forgot.
The next best thing I have is tomorrow night I am going to be ‘hosting’ (what does this mean, really?) from 10:00pm to 12:00am at The Black Club which is being held at A&M and Racket bars in Auckland. There’s going to be a ‘What I Wore Today wall’, because as some of you might know, I take my WIWT’s in front of the same wall at my house, often. Come fulfil your narcissistic tendencies in a safe environment – take your WIWT’s against the wall and ‘gram them. Pop in “#KIAWIWT” and my favourite will win a $50 bar tab and a high five from me. That’s all I can offer you because I am #broke remember?
Anyway, if you would like to come along, I would love to see you even if I don’t know you. Unless you’re a creep, in which case it’s probably better that you stay at home on the internet. Kidding! I love creeps! I have another $50 bar tab for whoever can tell me the best joke in the comments by 5:00pm Saturday so lol away readers, lol away!
PS: Jokes aside, yes, it has been four years and obviously without the support of many of you – even the haters (because if someone is willing to invest time in reading your blog and commenting on it- regardless of whether it’s positive or negative – that’s still their time), I would probably still be working in my graphic design/account management job, trying to count the number of tiles on ceiling. Either that or I’d be some successful, rich, creative director living the high life …but we won’t even think about that. Thank you.
