Calligraphy (by Ryan Jaddoe)

One should always be capable of bending over backwards, but always within reason. You can be the person that always gets his/her way. Good for you, so do you really think people enjoy working with you? No honey, they definitely do not. I used to be one of those people. Yet time teaches oneself, change is inevitable, make it the right change for you. Always have backup plans, because life takes pleasure in screwing us over and over again. And I know it’s impossible to keep standing on your feet. When you fall down, get back up. Because if you were able to stand up and face life once, you can do it again, again and again. I write the reminders on my coat, but you can make a mental reminder in the back of your head. Stay strong troubled one. more on ryanjaddoe.com

This Coat Is On Fire (by Ryan Jaddoe)

“Tell me, are you still amazed by the looks you get? You look like a walking firetower. Don’t get me wrong I love it. But you get why people are staring right?” was one the first comments I got when wearing this coat. I knew they were looking. And I was loving every minute of it. Not because of the attention, it just felt like I was giving their dull brains some colourful thoughts. Because most of the dull people can use A LOT of those. I have a dream, a mission. And it’s one I’m fulfulling step by step. Patience is a key element in succeeding. Sometimes I just do want to set myself on fire. Prepare myself for the day that will come. The judgement day, the day I die. When I move into my suite in Hell. I should know how the burning feels. Because the dark side keeps calling out to me. My dreams keep pulling me in. Afraid I’ll stay there forever. Only to wake up knowing it isn’t real. But I feel like they’re all part of one big message. Sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh hysterically, sometimes I kill, sometimes I get killed. Dreams.. Dreams. I think of them as inspiration. They’re so crazy and undefinable. But I love the variety. Instead of waking up in fear, I wake up in a creative mood. No matter how disturbing my dreams are. Now you may think I belong at an insane asylum after reading this. Maybe I do. But I just love sharing my passion for the ugly truth. Beauty is hidden in everything.And now I have trouble sleeping. My sleeping cycle started to feel like the victim of a vicious circle. I mean come on! I was awake at 3 a.m.(with the idea in my head to stay up until 6 a.m.) convinced that I would be productive. Even with the huge lack of sleep. Well that is my cue to go. My pillow, my waterbed, my blanket they’re all calling out to me.. Did my mind prepare a dream again?

Goth Send (by Ryan Jaddoe)

Since I looked like an antichrist, why not call this outfit post “Goth” Send. Catchy huh? I’ve become a beardy!!!! But I’m probably clean shaved by the time you read this. Haven’t slept, pulled an all-nighter to get ahead on some homework assignments. I was grateful to Yves Saint Laurent for Touche Éclat! And for black coffee. So if you did not notice yet, I tried to spray paint my accessories black. And I gave my rings a “used” look. This is my first outfit post since more than a month ago. REALLY have been busy with my fulltime internship at Imps & Elfs, Moving out on my own and juggling school + work. And now I’m HUNGRY. GOTTA FIX ME SOME DINNER!!! more on www.ryanjaddoe.com
