welcome to the realist. 


Creating a mood board is like letting someone take a peek inside of your mind. Although I love the written word, I also love a song that flows to your thought process and the feeling you get when you come across an image that perfectly explains your vision more than speaking ever could. 

Through the hours and hours of my high school life I spent shamelessly scrolling through Tumblr, I still remember the first time I read the words, "Envy is ignorance, imitation is suicide," from Ralph Waldo Emerson's Self-Reliance. I immediately read the whole essay, and the words have stuck with me ever since. 

I felt the best way to kick off The Realist was with a mood board that envisions my definition of Self-Reliance. I hope The Realist inspires you to embrace your true self —strengths and flaws equally— while curating your dream life confidently, boldly and passionately.
