While a part of me that questions whether or not I should still be wearing my floral headband, there’s an even bigger part of me that congratulates myself for wearing it because I’m living out my childhood dream of being a garden fairy. Not only am I living out my garden fairy dream, but I’m also wearing a bow tie, which means I’m not just dressing as a garden fairy; I’m dressing as a classy garden fairy. Add in the fact that I’ve acquired a “bow tie buddy” earlier today and guessed that we were reading about cannibals in AP Language, and we can all just assume that this has been a pretty fine day.
P.S. Please excuse my facial expression. It was quite windy out today, and the breeze disturbs me.
I’ve been trying to do this new thing with my money lately called “saving” and did not realize until recently that I kind of suck at it. For instance, I remember walking into a store with my dad because he needed measuring tape and walking out with this post’s sweater. Later I went to Walmart for lasagna and walked out with a new box of vanilla chai tea despite the fact that I have 100 bags of various teas at home already. I envy those who can save money long term.
I got 99 problems and, unfortunately, this sweater just so happens to be one.
As you all may be able to tell, I am in the process of appreciating all of the joys of wearing oversized cardigans. While my height and stature may not appreciate them all that much, the part of me that loves to be swarmed in blankets 24/7 during the winter enjoys it very much. It makes me look a little bit less ridiculous whenever I feel the need to tell people about my desire for a blanket made specifically for my shins and ankles because they tend to get quite cold.
I get the feeling that I’m going to spend the rest of my life yearning to be one of those people who can dress appropriately for all four seasons. I can do “seasonal” outfits (hence, why I own a red blazer with black sequin lapels-for the “Christmas season”) and I can dress for spring and fall, but when it comes to dressing for the season I’m in every single day, my mind goes blank. And that, my friends, is why I’m wearing a pumpkin colored cardigan in January. It’s so sad how much I can genuinely appreciate a season and all of the clothes that go with it, but only be able to dress in the fashions of the one before it. It must be all the leaves in my yard influencing my outfit.
I’ve had a pretty busy time this January, starting with trying to figure out this whole “school” thing again (it only takes a couple of weeks to forget how much of a pain an education can be – that being said, I do enjoy learning.) Then, after only being back for about a week, I found out my regional HOSA competition was coming up, so I rushed to buy my very first suit (which will be seen in a later post.) The most spectacular news, though, is that I won 1st place in my event! So, I said to myself, ‘self, what is a better way to celebrate winning something for the first time in your life than to create a random weekend post?’ and my self said back ‘nothing.’ Thus here we are.
