so long.

Hello, glorious human beings!!!!

So... I know what you're thinking... "Oh, look. There's Lexy... She's done it again... Just left her blog. Abandoned. Rotting. All alone... Lazy bitch."

Well. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO SAY TO THAT? HUH? DO YOU? You think you know me soooo well? Well, guess what? You don't. Yeah. That's right. YOU REALLY DON'T. For your information, I'm in Morocco right now! HAH! Sucker.

*Audience (you) waits in silence, anticipating the usual "just kiddingz" to follow.*

Except it won't. Be followed. With a just kidding. Because it's not a kidding. It's pure truth, babyyyy!

Ahem. I don't know why I am being so awkward about this. Basically, hi. I am in Morocco. Surprise! If you remember my previous posts' elusiveness attempts... yeah... it was about that. In fact, I've been here for about two and a half weeks. And I'll be here for another two and a half months. And then I'll be in Europe for a month after. Surprise, surprise, surprise!

When I decided to embark on the good ole "gap" year thang, this is exactly what I had in mind. Traveling and experiencing and exploring and living. I'm living with a Moroccan family, volunteering with kids, and exploring when I have a chance, it's scary and crazy and exciting and... an adventure, really!

For all you beautiful strangers (but friends, all the same), thank you so much for joining me on the ride thus far in my life. But now, it's time for me to say "Ma as-salaamah" (Goodbye), as the next chapter of my life unfolds. I may be back in a few months... who knows? Life is crazy. Nothing goes as planned, especially when you're going with your heart. (Awww! Cheeseballs!)

Life has been beautiful, but I still have so much to learn and experience and discover. I'm growing up! I don't know where I'll be in a month, a few months, a year... but I'll find out. I'll figure it out.

Thank you so, so much for being there! Really. I can't imagine that it's much fun listening to the confused and incoherent rambling of an obnoxiously colourful teenager... but you've been there. Thank you. I hope all you're wildest dreams come true. I really do. Smile rainbows and love lots! Life is short. Shoot me an email sometime, yeah?

Colourful kisses!
Lexy xxxxx

Ali said...

khfajkshdasd you better be back in a few months to AT LEAST SAY HELLO because I like you a lot awe :'( but hey, have fun out there in the real world, okay? Not everyone is as nice as the people on the internet. BE SAFE AND LIVE, MY FRIEND.

Mrs. April said...

Aww, I'll miss your posts, man. But GO OUT AND GET IT! Get what? I dunno. Life. Experience. Just get it all! :)


Lydia said...

OMG Lexy!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, KUDOS TO YOU. Get out there girl and see what's what. You are so brave to just go venture out into the world like that, and now is definitely the time to do it-- while you're young and open to new things. And you're super lucky to be able to do this, because a lot of people can't, so really do it up for everybody!!!

You're so smart and talented and awesome, and whatever you do in your life will be rad. I can tell. I hope you come back, but is it weird that I actually hope you DON'T because I want you to have discovered something far more amazing?

Say hi every now and then please!

Meg said...

YAY!!! That is so great. I wish I was joining you! I hope you have a super-fantastic time. I'm following your tumblr, stat.

Going to miss you lots! Learn tons of things!

Vivi said...

Well, at least you have a tumblr going. Following that right...now.

Anywho, I'm so happy that you are delving into another chapter of your life. Like you said, you took a year off for a reason. And it's happening! Wishing you the best. :o)

p.s. Come back in a couple of months, though. We can't go all that long without seeing some of your talented work.

Betina said...

OMG Lexy, I have been (fashion) blogging since 2009 and then when life outside my computer gets way more exciting, I just stopped. We actually exchanged comments and stuff and you are one of my fave bloggers out there. Now as I embark to a new passion (traveling) and actually started another blog with less pressure of posting something new, I remembered you and visited your blog. I'm sad with the post title but OMG i am so flippin' excited for you! And Morocco!!! I will be there in October (and God knows if you're still there)... Oh, I just hope everything is well with you. I am sure you are making this world a better world with your heart... and of course, impeccable style!

Hugs from NYC,

I really, really wish I were doing what you are doing right now. Traveling and giving back--sounds like a great way to spend 6 months.

Miss your quirkiness!

Anonymous Joe said...

Morocco! *__* I've always contemplated on what I would do with my gap year. Probably just sit at home all day and game.

Yours sounds better.

I'll absolutely have to check into your little mini-travel-blog thingo.

Have a nice triiip! :3
