Number two the pacifist dirty velvet 2 I always try to solve everything. And I do mean EVERYTHING. It's almost like I can't see a problem or situation without trying to get involve and fix something or contribute to its solution. I'd like to say that I usually tend to go for a pacific approach, that I always stay cool and collected but, many times, that's not the case. Sometimes, I act out and become a little crazy. It's fun to watch but terrible to live, you know...

But yes, with most of my relationships, I usually go the extra mile and focus on helping others. I don't know, it comes natural to me. Sometimes it works and it's magnificent; others... Well, let's say I've been yelled to mind my own business more than once. I think that's a great strength but, also, my fatal flaw, I get involved too much and don't know how to respond to boundaries. It has given me great victories and tons of bad times.

Dirty Velvet, as I told you on a previous post, is a design collective based in the UK and they're all about ethic and making people think with their designs. I'm wearing a sweatshirt that, at least for me, is about letting the bureaucracy take control of the city and how that becomes a King-Kong-size issue. The t-shirt, I feel, is more about knowing when to stop dehumanising and how it would be terrible to lose ourselves in the modern aspects of current days. I like to think that the guys at Dirty Velvet also are pacifists, that they like to solve conflicts and give an input to society. I like that. Check their website for more crafty smart items.

// Siempre trato de arreglar todo. Y lo digo en serio, TODO. Es como si no pudiera ver un problema o situación sin intentar involucrarme y resolver o contribuir a la solución. Me gusta decir que usualmente voy hacia un camino pacífico, que siempre me mantengo entero y tranquilo pero, muchas veces, no es el caso. A veces, enloquezco un poquito. Es chistoso verlo pero terrible vivirlo, saben...

Pero sí, con la mayoría de mis relaciones, suelo ir más allá y concentrarme en ayudar a otros. No sé, me es natural. A veces funciona y es magnífico; otras... Pues, digamos que me han gritado que me meta en mis propios asuntos más de una vez. Creo que es una gran fortaleza pero, también, mi falla fatal: me involucro de más y no sé cómo responder ante las barreras. Me ha dado grandes victorias y terribles derrotas.

Dirty Velvet, como les dije en un post anterior, es un colectivo de diseño basado en UK y ellos apuestan por ética y hacer pensar a la gente con sus diseños. Estoy usando una sudadera que, al menos para mí, se trata de dejar a la burocracia tomar el control de la ciudad y cómo eso se convierte en un mal tamaño King Kong. La playera, siento, se trata de saber cuándo parar la deshumanización y cómo sería terrible perdernos en los aspectos modernos de la actualidad. Me gusta creer que los chavos de Dirty Velvet también son pacifistas, que les gusta resolver conflictos y dar algo a la sociedad. Me gusta eso. Vayan a su sitio web para ver más ropa ingeniosa e inteligente.
