I have an exciting tid-bit of news. I was notified early in the week that I was accepted as a Teen-Vogue blogger (!!!!). I applied in the summer, but didn't get in, and for the heck of it, decided to try again a couple weeks ago, and viola! Don't ever be discouraged if you fail a first time is really the whole motto of the story. I even get a cute little button to put on my blog! Wooohooo! Celebratory internal clap! Kind of nifty.
Anyways, this week isn't turning out to be as wonderfully orderly and organized as my facebook fast was last week. I still haven't gone on facebook, but I find myself getting distracted by other things on the computer. I may have to de-toxify myself of tumblr, flickr, and texts from last night. But I'm hoping I can pull my head out of the gutter and get going again. Last week, I aced every single chemistry quiz. This week, I had a blunder on the first one and got a seventy percent, and the one yesterday was completely out of line. Why do professors like to trick us and throw in questions that we didn't talk about at all? I'm trying not to get discouraged and to cope with my grief, last night I did the chemistry homework for three and a half hours straight. I must not get my hopes down!!
Niklaas started Valentine's Day two weeks early being the little meany that he is. I brought the letter to class because I couldn't bear to leave it in my mailbox for another three hours but it turned out to be a major mistake. I'm already awkward enough talking to the archaeologist wannabe's in that class but considering they watched me giggle and smile about nothing for an entire hour probably means I'm done for. I've always had a love/hate relationship with Valentine's Day. Honestly, I never really cared if I had "someone" because I sent Valentine's to my friends and family anyways, which was more fun than giving them to a boy, anyway. But now, I do, and all my years of creating adorable Valentine's for my pals is completely useless to me now. How do I complete with two weeks worth of Valentine's Day cute things in the mail leading up to a package? Womp womp womp.

This winter, I really started to try remixing more of my old clothes. I know this is months after the fact, but when Heather from Simply Sunstar guest posted on my blog, she challenged everyone to find a piece of clothing in their closet they wanted to throw out, and to style it. Guess what, Heather? I finally am! Haha. I came seconds away from throwing out this skirt because about four girls from my High School bought it after I did and I just didn't feel it anymore, but then I decided to give it one last chance. I threw on my bow shirt, solid leggings, a leather brown belt, and all of the sudden, I liked it again! If you ever have doubt, mix patterns!
These boots are my ultimate pride and joy. They were signed none other than by Taylor Swift. It's true. I remember when I met her thinking, What can I ask her to sign???, because I literally wasn't expecting to meet her and had brought nothing. Standing there in front of me with a big sharpie, the lightbulb went off in my head, and in two seconds flat she was on her knees signing my boots for me. She even took her time to make it "extra cute" as she said. I was going to take them off so she wouldn't have to bend down, but golly gee! She's quite the woman, Taylor is.
find me here!
Anyways, today is Thursday. Aka, the day of Hell. No, really. I have 9 hours of classes on Thursdays. Two labs. A workshop. And english. Kill me. My workload is so full this semester! It's actually proving to be good for me in balancing my time, but, still. So much work! Have a wonderful Thursday:)
