Permanent Jet Lag



I'm not mad about these photos, but I was feeling too self-concious to go outside my apartment. I took them yesterday as I was trying to come up with new ways of wearing this dress- I think lace is so versatile and pretty.



Not much to report really other than the fact that I am really happy today. The first day of class means routine and order- two things I love. Unfortunately, routine and order started at 6.30am and I was still almost late. I'm not sure how I manage that- it's clearly a skill.
As I've probably mentioned before, I was torn between taking Photo I or Editing II: Newsroom Practicum. I was very lucky to be offered a place on Editing because I didn't have any of the pre-reqs and all the journalism classes I wanted to take were fully booked. For a while I had my heart set on Photo but more recently I'd started to miss journalism classes and learning about writing.
Anyway, my decision was practically made for me. While I didn't not enjoy my photography class, it wasn't very me. I felt a little alien amongst Art and Photography majors and I just felt it wasn't a class I'd be able to really do well in. I was then apprehensive about my journalism class.
Fortunately, I loved it and I am very much looking forward to the rest of the semester and very glad I have made a decision about my classes. I am also taking Victorian Literature and American Literature II, both of which I have tomorrow. Being a lit nerd I can't wait.


Today I am appreciating the little things- homework that is keeping me free from the boredom that has consumed the last few days, excitement about classes, the fact that American houmous tastes so much better than back home, making my favourite tuna salad, wearing my duffel coat everyday and the fact that my boy is taking me out on our first real date tomorrow :]]


dress- topshop
cardigan- george at asda
boots- xavi


Not much else to report today other than hiiii new followers :DD and thank you for record numbers of hits yesterday- almost 1000!! I was also really chuffed to be feature on Cupcake Couture yesterday :]]

Have a lovely Tuesday :]]

  5. Love that lace dress! And that last picture is really pretty - when I got to it, I was like wow. Something about it is just very cool. Good luck on the next term - I know you'll do wonderful!

    (PS I actually really like the new layout. It's so simple yet graphic & the color scheme is really you.) :]]

  9. Interesting hearing about all your classes! So weird to not be in school anymore. I almost forgot today was the first day of classes. Hmmph! I took a photography class and it was nothing at all like that...in fact, everyone else's stuff was mostly quite horrible and I took some of the best pictures in the class (I know that sounds so haughty...but it was true. The teacher even said it). I'd love to go try the one at UMD and see what would happen! I think there's a prereq for that though and I don't have it, so the deal's off!

    And I'd love to hear what you read in American Lit...it's one of my favorite kinds of literature!

  20. Glad that you are having a fun start this year.:D Order for me is a must!

    The femininity of the lace and the boldness of the red together is beautiful. I like how you wore these two.
