Okay haha, I’m Lily, and I’m a high school student in a upper class suburban town I guess
What inspires you everyday
Music is one of my main sources of inspiration, I don’t think much of my life would be what it is today if I didn’t have music. I grew up with a wide range of music always playing and I have a very strong connection towards it, I think my earliest inspirations came from that. Living in the city for part of my life and having many friends in Boston also has an impact on that, it’s a lot different to be out in the city, you can explore a lot more than what you are used to. As basic as it seems, Tumblr and blogs and shit are what a lot of the time inspires me daily. The people I surround myself with are pretty inspiring as well, none of my friends are average they are all very different and have strong personalities
What is something you would change about people in the world
I would definitely change how people choose to judge others. I would change that in a heartbeat because it is the biggest issue right now, especially in the US. If others would open their minds and learn to understand and love one another things could really change, but the ignorance and hate polluting the world is too strong. If people could just listen to each other, learn from each other, and stop being fucking idiots about the way they view other people’s race, gender, sexuality, religion, and beliefs, things would be great
What is your view on society today
I think that there are a lot of great people and a lot of not so great people. Society is a really big category of people so that is a hard question to deliberate on, but like everything, it has its positives and negatives
What is something you’ve struggled with
Definately have struggled with mental health. I have a tendency to put other people before myself, and that can bite you in the ass sometimes if you stay like that long enough. Anxiety and depression are the main ones thought. I’m not ashamed to say that I have indeed struggles with self harm and medication, it was difficult, but I pulled myself out of it and am a much healthier person in the present
I still struggle with coping with my depression and anxiety on a day to day basis, it isn’t something that can be cured overnight, but dealing with it is the only thing I can do to keep doing what young people need to do, have fun.
What is a positive message you would give others
A positive message I would give others is to just always stay true to yourself and see your inner beauty as well as everyone else’s, that’s a very important thing
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
I would like to be successful overall, that is my main goal. I want a career that is both well paying and fulfilling. It’s a hard thing to achieve tho! I want to work somewhere I can be a figure as well. Modeling or designing have always been my dream jobs.
