"A maestra of seduction, like someone who truly knows her craft, knows that everything has to look like you didn’t try. Like you just are."

How She Does It All

Twice in the last couple of days, I have been asked, “How do you do it?” It’s strange being asked that question considering how I have a never-ending to-do list. I always end up putting something on hold in order to do other things. I don’t do it all. If I did end up completing all my tasks at once, there was always something, if not everything on the list, that lacked in quality. Some things don’t get done to my satisfaction, I learn from it and  try to improve the next time. I try to focus on the things that are important.

The first time, a coworker posed this question in reference to working part time and going to school full time in my undergrad. I answered honestly and said I had to give up my social life for the most part. Also because I was working so much and going to school at 18-19 units a semester, I got sick, a lot. I had to make sacrifices and choose what to get done and what not to get done. It was awful.

The second time I was asked this question, it was in reference to how I seemed to be ready for any occasion. I had attended a tea party for a dear friend’s birthday, which was in the middle of what I considered a heat wave, and had used my hat to tuck in my hair. Which prompted my other friend to ask me, “How do you do it?” As she commented on how I looked like I stepped out of Nylon Magazine, I tried to contemplate what she meant by that. At first I jokingly told her I read “How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits.” I was trying to refer to having a French, laissez-faire approach, but she didn’t hear me or understand what I meant by that. Then I told her that I just don’t care about what other people think, and I just do me. I do what makes me happy.
