Preppy Sparkles

This wasn't what I was going to wear today. And I don't think it came out as well as it looked in real life. My collar is a bit awkward  too. It's the collar again from my bike top,  but it's not a real collar so it doesn't really work. This is my preppy-meets-sparkles look. I also thought I'd bring my coat into the photos. I seriously love this coat. The collar annoys me though because it literally buttons up over my mouth and looks so silly!! Today I tucked it in, which I think looked better. This jumper is also the exact same as my beige one which I love!

Well, it's Friday night and I'm in my pajamas, watching Peter Kay while my housemates go out. My excuse is that my Mum is coming to visit tomorrow so I need an early night, but in reality, I'm just really boring and I don't really go out anymore. I just don't have time. I literally live in the library, and even after 8 hours in the library I don't feel like I'm making any kind of dent in my workload. I am constantly worried about all the work I have to do, constantly tired and sick. But I am a huge nerd. I know that I am probably doing enough work, or even more than enough work, but it never feels like enough.

Which leads me to something I've been thinking about for ages- are most bloggers nerds? Are we all a bit socially awkward, preferring nights in to wild nights on the town? We all work hard, spending hours writing, editing, taking photos of ourselves. We all share ourselves on the internet. I am a huge nerd. I love an early morning and an early night. I love productive days. I love staying in rather than going out. And you know what, I'm okay with that. It's taken me 20 years to be okay with being a nerd, but hey, the nerds will inherit the earth right?

Anyway! Well my Mummy is coming tomorrow- yay! I haven't seen my Mum for about 6 weeks so it's gonna be so nice. I'm looking forward to a girly day of shopping and the Christmas markets. It's going to be so fun. I'm really looking forward to coming home for Christmas even though I'm staying up here another week now to catch up on my work. I haven't been home for almost 2 months so I need some home comforts!!

Have a great night guys!
