Barely Here

(Shirt: JCREW via Outlets, Skirt: Target, Shoes: Rack Room Shoes, Belt: Target)

I'm alive! And still trying to figure out what the heck I'm doing half the time. Sorry for the sporadic posts. More life posts later on.  I have a great photo shoot that I want to share. :))

New Obsession

So my favorite jewelry store in the entire world sells teeny-tiny earring by Boma and I've fallen in love with them. I love how small they are, because they don't get in the way/caught in my hair, etc. I can put them in and forget about them for a few weeks. Also: anything tiny is automatically cuter. (The second earrings are skulls btw. Zoe thought they were soccer balls. false.)
If anyone wants to get me a Christmas present, this would be a solid, cheap choice. hinthint.

Dirty Secret

What I've been wearing for the past few days. Embarrassed, I must admit. College is stressful, team.

I've been obsessed with Anne of Green Gables since I was a little girl. There was just something so amazingly simple about the time in which she lived. I know that L.M. Montgomery portrayed a female who had extraordinary advantages that many others didn't have, but, on the nights when it's Halloween and all I want to do is sleep, I wonder what life would be like if I didn't have to worry about school and peer pressure. If I could just be mature, old-lady me who goes to bed early. If I could be just getting married and living on a beautiful farm somewhere in Canada, where the White Way of Delight would amaze me everyday. 
I sometimes wonder if this is the way college is supposed to be done. I know that you're not supposed to compare yourself to anyone else, but I keep wondering if I'm missing anything. Where is the balance between being content with who you are and and changing?
Wanna hear a fun fact? I was on a gameshow for my school today. And I knew absolutely nothing about pop-culture, especially no pop-culture that was Halloween-themed. And while I was standing there, not buzzing in on a single question, I at no point wanted to be anyone different. And that was a helpful feeling. I'm proud that I can't name all the Kardashians or stick one-liners to movies. If it had been one-liners from documentaries though, I would have felt bad about myself. Haha, such a nerd. 

This last picture is from my camping trip a few weeks back. Haha, I'm trying to share more pictures from it, but I can't see a preview because I'm shooting in RAW for my photography class and have no idea how to work a computer. I just kinda clicked at random and uploaded a few weird ones until I found one that was a lot of fun. This blog is losing all rhyme and reason. Whatever.
Thanks for reading through this mess. :))

Wut Up Stressin'

Today I had a period of very high stress. I'm a planner. I always have to know what my next step is. This time last year I knew what my plan was for the next year and a half, and I found that extremely comforting. But right now I'm trying to figure out study abroad and internships and classes and how the heck am I expected to do this all by myself? How do people do it? How do they figure out what they love and pursue it? I've always wanted to say I have a passion for something. "I have a passion for collecting old plates" I'd say. Or "I just love learning about caterpillar saliva and will dedicate the rest of my life to researching it!" Instead, I feel like I've been blindfolded and spun in a million circles and told to "Figure it Out". Terrifying. Instead of relishing in my good fortune and excitement for the future, I feel like a deer in headlights. And I'm realizing that this uncertainty never goes away. And I'm not sure if I'll ever get used to it.
(The pictures are just from my mountain adventures. I'm having SUCH a good time with manual focus and large apertures.)

Throw Some Glitter Make It Rain

Blurry Mirror Picture of the day wut wuttt. Yesterday marked the end of my glitter guilt. What a glorious thing direct confrontation in the form of an apology is. Why the heck is it so hard to do? Note to self: work on apologizing skills.
