What is Feminine Vestige?
Vestige means a trace of something that is disappearing or no longer exists.
When I first started this blog, I was attempting to discover who I was as a recent college graduate entering the cusps of true adulthood. I chose vestige because I was feeling resentful at how women, femininity, and people my age were being treated. I felt recent graduates were becoming synonymous with lazy, unprofessional, and ‘young.’ I wanted to be taken seriously.
Since then, this blog has transformed as I have. Now that I am about to get married, am thinking of starting a family, and am more settled with who I am as a person – this blog will reflect just me. It does not have any direct focus, but is more a reflective blog on things I am passionate about: feminism, femininity, poetry, crafts, love.
A little about the author.
My name is Sarah, and I am a young woman with an old soul. I consider myself incredibly lucky with the opportunities I have had in my life, and yet I am a survivor and a product of my own suffering and perseverance. My family is small which leaves me with the undeniable feeling of inevitable sadness that I will soon be alone. I am in love; I am constantly working towards my dreams; I strive to live a creative life (head nod to Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic) by writing, reading, painting, acting, and doing the things I love. When I’m not doing all that, I’m cuddling with my cat Enya.
