I had goals for this summer. I had goals that said that I would do more posts now that I didn’t have the excuse of being busy for 7 hours a day with school. I also had goals that included getting in shape. All these goals have awarded me is a camera full of photos for posts that I was too lazy to put up and a pair of gym shorts that I wore grocery shopping instead of to any fitness oriented area. I think I’m kind of winning the lottery at life right now.
Happy Sunday everybody! It’s always been a dream of mine to be able to pull off the afro look and, seeing as I had just washed my hair, yesterday seemed as good a day as any to start (i.e. I was feeling really lazy after washing my hair and decided to let it air dry). I was feeling some serious vibes from the fro, guys. I almost thought I was going to travel back in time to experience some disco fever. Then I remembered that this was a time in which there was no home internet service or computers, so I decided to play it safe and stay in 2013. Nothing’s better than a good old afro, internet connection, and neon green sweater.
The nice thing about the color black is that it manages to effortlessly match nearly everything in my wardrobe while giving me a cover story for any “unconventional” outfit I may wear. This basically means I can be cuddly in my green sweater, throw on a floor length skirt, call myself polished and then have an answer for why I am dressed as such. So, when a classmate of mine asks why I’m “dressed up” I can promptly say that this is the only skirt I own that is dark enough to match my soul. Of course, that is a lie. I just like wearing sweaters with skirts and this skirt is lovely because it is both a maxi skirt and a mini skirt at the same time, but the made up answer garners much more interesting reactions.
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.
