Modern Romance: Millienials looking for love in the digital age

We are a generation of idiots. Smartphones and dumb people.

Head in the cloud. Soul mate where art thou?

 

Aziz Ansar’s Modern Romance deciphers how love, sex and romance has become fun, yet also complicated and distorted by modern times and changing technology. He believes the most intimate relationships our generation has is with our cell phones. It’s a time when human beings can be judged with a swipe of a finger (Tinder). A century ago people would find a decent person who lived in their neighborhood. Today, people spend years of their lives on a quest to find the perfect person, a soul mate. And even after we find our soul mates, if we start feeling unhappy, we get a divorce.

Comedian Ansar used this book as a hilariously useful map of dating landscape in the digital age. This book was actually based on numerous research and study group experiments. Such as, Sherry Turtle (MIT social psychologist) expressing how younger people are so used to text- based communications, where they have time to gather their thoughts and precisely plan what they are going to say, that they are losing their ability to have spontaneous conversation.” She argues that the muscles in our brain that help us with spontaneous conversation are getting less exercise in the text-filled world, so our skills are declining. WOW!

I always say that I truly believe I was born in the wrong generation. We are more in love with the idea of love without grasping that it’s A LOT of work. Disney princess goals are not exactly realistic. Passionate love scientist estimate that this “honeymoon phase” usually lasts about twelve to eighteen months. But, how many couples actually last past that initial high before starting to worry about whether this is really the right person for you? This search for a soul mate and not being able to adjust when the romantic part of the relationship has peak shit gets real complicated.

For my lovers out their don’t be a pussy and quit on your love. Listen, respect and genuinely love your partner for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part. And for the single folk out their set aside your smartphone and look up.

When’s the last time you did something for the first time?

IMG_9713.jpgI can scratch off being in a music video on my bucket list. lol.

Doing wardrobe styling as an assistant I have been on set countless times for the Miami Heat Basketball team, Dwayne Wade, Adam Levine, Pitbull and Chris Brown videos, etc). I’ve never been on the other side as one of the “models” for the videos I’ve contributed to. I experienced difficulty with taking myself seriously with receiving directions on set; “walk sexy” be sexy “smile sexy”. I’m low key an awkward person, ya know? But thankfully I don’t look too awkward. haha.

I’m Broke Because Of Books

Indeed. Story of my life. Like seriously, you know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that at books stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor. *shrugs* I’m just throwing that out into the universe.

No Commission; ArtBaselMiami

your flaws aren’t flaws; you’re art.

the No Commission activation was a contemporary art fair experience curated by The Dean Collection to forge a direct link between artists’ practices and art patronage. Bacardi & Swizz Beatz presented the No Commission Art Fair and the Untameable House Party Concert fair which provided exhibition space at no cost and artists retain 100 percent of sales proceeds to aid studio development. AMAZING !!!

Wynwood is home for me. for the free, creative, entrepreneurs. i was comfortably fully clothed (besides my boobs being out) in my sheer top, full length quilted floral skirt and my ever ready patent leather chelsea boots. i would further define my outfit choice as untamed but not excessive.

BLONDE MOMENT:

Art Basel ; In 1970, three Basel gallerists put their passion and determination behind an ambitious vision to form an international art fair. Now, Art Basel stages the premier international art shows, providing platforms for galleries and artists from around the world.

The US show of Art Basel Miami, which began in 2002, takes place each December and marks the winter reunion for the international art world.
