Guess where I am writing to you from? Guess, guess? If you guessed "home" (and if you read the title of the post and still guessed wrong, shame on you ;) ), bingo! For the two nights that I've been home, I've slept for ten + hours. The first night? 14. Last night? 11. I'm definitely getting my share of sleep and it feels amazing! Finals are over, Christmas is days away, and I'm home with my family. I'm so happy!
I had my job interview on Thursday. I thought it went pretty well and the interviewer was friendly and nice. However, because I didn't get home until the 15th, interviews have already been going on for weeks and the positions are minimal. Hmph. It seemed guaranteed I'd get hours in January during the interview but then I got an email the next morning saying otherwise. We'll see, I guess. I'm honestly just glad it's over! I was so nervous and while I want money, I'm happy to have the first job interview experience in my life over. Woo!

Seeing everyone has been insane. It's so fascinating to see how things have changed. It seems that I left home a hormonal teenage sister and came back to a still-hormonal but kind and happy teenage sister! I love it. I told you all I was most excited to hang out with her at home again, and it's been better than I imagined. I missed her so much! I accidentally surprised Niklaas in seeing him for the first time getting home. I went to lunch with my best friend and followed her to her class after the lunch period. While standing there talking to her, I, oblivious to the fact that Niklaas was in the this class with her, looked at the door and in he walked. Just like that! Surprise! It was funny. And kind of awkward with an entire classroom of people there. But nonetheless, it kind of took my breath away ;)
Between sleeping and napping and sleeping and watching television and drinking ice water (seriously, the first thing I did upon returning home was visit the freezer and put some ice cubes in my water), I reunited with my best friend Margaret, the other half of Margaret Squared! We ate ice cream in the winter weather which isn't so winter without the snow and snapped some pictures!
I wore this outfit about two months ago when I first received this owl necklace from Margaret and seriously, the whole outfit was put together around it. That's how I work. I always choose one item whether it be a necklace, pair of shoes, dress, or sweater and then build on it! I got this dress from Target months ago and I love it! Target is my new favorite place to shop for clothes. I am so deprived when I'm home without one! I got this cardigan from F21 last winter and it's one of my most worn items in my closet. It's so cozy. I want the orange and brown one SO badly it hurts! This whole outfit is so monochromatic which is weird for me, but I find myself doing it more and more this winter. Hmmm! It's always interesting going into new seasons because I'm experiencing every season firsthand with a blog and I never know what I'm going to do.
I got these lovely shoes back in March and wearing them makes me so happy. When I used to wear them, everyone was like, Maggie, why are you wearing dress shoes??? And now everyone wears oxfords! Score. My mom keeps telling me to stop wearing these tights because they have a whole in them, but opaque tights are just my favorite! How can I help it? I think she's starting to take it as a hint to buy me new ones. Hehe.
Well. I'm off to finish my Saturday out. I'm scheduling this for tomorrow. From now on, I plan on having a post every other day! Yay! Regular posting! I'm excited.
