What type of blog is this, anyway?
Primarily fashion, but I'm also interested in interior design, product design, photography and art of any kind. Let's just say it's a fashion&lifestyle blog, with a personal twist from time to time.
Why Slow Catharsis?
Let's see what this fancy catharsis word means, anyway.

Medicine/Medical . purgation.
psychotherapy that encourages or permits the discharge of pent-up, socially unacceptable affects.
discharge of pent-up emotions so as to result in the alleviation of symptoms or the permanent relief of the condition.
I was in my senior year of high school and preparing for the Baccalaureate, so I had to give up 'real blogging', which I did on a shared blog with my best friend. But my mind started feeling cluttered, and thirsty for things I'd been loving and doing for years, namely fashion. So I created a tumblr, meant to help realize a catharsis for me, perhaps in a less dramatic and literal way. The initial purpose was to 'clean out' my mind, slowly chipping away at the mess as I was pressed for time, but slowcleanout isn't exactly mellodic, now is it?
Nowadays, this name has become a symbol of what I think is the process of me really becoming me, emerging from my teenage years with a clearer mind. I would love it if blogging became my livelihood one day, but now and in the near future, it is merely a way for me to clean out my mind by expressing thoughts and ideas related to things I am passionate about.
