trouble is a friend

This weekend, I discovered two amazing things that have changed my life. Lenka and Florence and the Machine. Actually, I should say three because I downloaded Poison&Wine by The Civil Wars and that is also my new love. I've had one of their songs on my ipod for forever but never really ventured into their other stuff. Seriously. Where have you been all of my life, Lenka, Florence, and Civil Wars??

I know this is a short week and we just had a long weekend so I should be super charged and motivated and the week should be flying by...but none of the above are even remotely true. I feel like I need a weekend to rest from my weekend! Last night, when I was forced to actually do my chemistry, I was being a cranky wallowing bee's nest and was so frustrated. You know when you look at a problem or a paragraph out of a book and you read it once and you're like.... WTF? Yeah. I did that. And was almost in tears. But then, Niklaas was too sweet and told me nice things so then I felt bad about being so stubborn about chemistry and did it again, more slowly, with milk and cookies by my side, and got it done. Whew. I just can't wait until winter is over and this seasonal depression thing is kicked in the face.

I probably wear this yellow cardigan three times a week, if not more. I've always been really weird about repeating clothes but I just can't stop wearing it with everything. I've lent it to four people on my floor, too, and it's just a prize winner. And I'm repeating this dress! Whoops! I guess this is just remix day ;) Ever since I gave back the other most perfect dress in the world, I've been searching for a substitute. This one is the closest I've found, but it still doesn't compare. If you all see any short sleeve button down black floral short dresses that aren't made of rayon or chiffon, let me know ;)

Anyways, it's Wednesday. Ew. The end of my weeks are so busy and messy! I have more school on Thursdays and Fridays individually than I do Monday through Wednesday, together. I have another test at the end of the week which will conclude the first round of terrible tests and then a week off and another. It's crazy! But! We're six weeks into the semester with only two and a half months till summer! Weeeee!

One of my friends just told me about the civil wars! And I love Florence+the machine so much haha. That mustard cardigan is adorable on you. I have tights that color and I love them to death. And I'm totally with you on the winter blues. But spring is near! :)

Seego said...

I looooove Lenka! Her songs are just uhh-mazing! But I feel ya on the whole school thing. School's kicking my butt right about now. I'm so overwhelmed by it all and I cannot wait for spring break or better yet, summer break. I really love your cardigan too! If i had one that color, I'd wear it repeatedly too haha

jamie said...

Amber Blue Bird said...

Catherine said...

Your outfit is adorable... I love your cardigan! I'd probably wear it all the time if I had it :)

I'm also more than ready for spring. Everything is much happier when it's not winter!

TC said...

I can definitely understand why you would want to wear that cardigan so much! It is sooo cute. I love Florence + The Machine, especially the song "Dog Days Are Over"!

I love Lenka and Florence & the Machine, but have not yet heard of The Civil Wars! But I'm guessing they're just as awesome, so I shall check them out. :D

Oh man, chemistry just sounds so rough. ): And seasonal depression just does not help things at all. Stupid winter. I like it sometimes but not when it's gloomy and miserable outside. Good luck with your terrible tests, and hopefully summer will hurry its butt up!

And, please, wear an outfit I don't like sometime? ;) Lovely dress and the sweater just adds such a great burst of color!

Kuleigh said...

I am so not a science person but more power to you. I have two tests on Friday so I can imagine how you feel. Good luck! I like the yellow. I have a yellow cardigan that I wear often. It makes me excited for spring and summer.

Courtney said...

I love your outfit. I would wear every article!

I definitely know what you mean about the homework. I'm so glad I'm not in school to do any right now, because that is one of the worst feelings to me...even though I always pushed through (like you did) because I just had to! Haha. Unfortunately, I'll be back in school in the fall. Bleh :s

Amber Rose, Laughing With Broken Eyes said...

Hey "Booger twin."

I can so relate to you on the seasonal depression. Even worse, we've had bits of sun, though just enough to tease/entice us about summer.. Is it just me or is this semester more dragging that the last?

Now.. that cardigan. I have a mustard yellow cardigan that I wear SO much. Really, as in I wore it for my blog banner, I wear it with ALL my dresses, but I'm not as nice as you and have never offered to loan it out. Haha. You look gorgeous as always, though.

I'm proud of you for doing your chemistry! I did my astronomy after our IM-fest and it just about ended me. Blah.

Write soon,
xoxo,
Amber

Alex said...

hahahaha how is it that you had never heard Florence before? Your life is now complete :)! I love how you rock white tights! I just can't try light-colored tights... let alone white. And I so desperately want to.
I hope you're having a great week, even though you told me this one was actually worse than the last one :/
ugh I just can't wait for spring break! :D

I can see why you're wearing the yellow cardigan three times a week. It's just a colorful cardi that instantly brightens up your day. (I hope so!)
