like you do

things that make Maggie extremely happy:
-getting out of lab an hour and a half early
-sleeping in but not missing class
-wearing a huge soft cardigan in 60 degree weather
-60 degree weather
-having someone to miss you
-parent phone calls
-cheesecake in the cafeteria
-texting someone good night every single night
and waking up to a good morning next every 
single morning
-rebecca black as the anthym to 1AM walmart runs
-vitamin water
-when someone tells you that you look pretty (doesn't everyone?)
-drawing smilies on my toes
-taylor swift online interviews
-closing my eyes when i'm stressed
At this moment in time, I'm very, very tired and very, very stressed and I just want to curl up in a ball and hide from the world. However, I know that I'm making a big deal out of something only kind of a big deal (actually, not a big deal at all) but who isn't tired and exhausted from school at this point? I know I am! Spring break can't come fast enough and the only thing getting me through these last two weeks is knowing that at the other end is seeing my family after what will be six weeks and the fact that when I come back from spring break, I only have three and a half weeks until summer. Summer. That idea is so dreamy in itself.
The lovely and amazing Jasmine inspired me. Once she started wearing sweaters over dresses, I had to try it. I walked out of the door and my mom thought I was insane. Her eyebrows shot up and it was like I was five years old again walking into the kitchen with underwear on my head ready for school. Ha!!! But, Jasmine looks effortless all the time with her sweater dress combination and after finding this little yellow ray of sunshine at goodwill, I knew I had to try it. And I have decided that I don't care what it looks like, it's the comfiest dang thing on the planet.

This dress is also a Goodwill prize. In total, this outfit cost me four dollars. Yahoo! I'm wearing THE boots again. I'm telling you, I just wear these all four year long, for every season. They're perfect. I realized that I've never worn my hair "up" before and this seemed like as good time as any. I've been twirling my hair into messy buns more and more these days. 
Well, I'm off to die (do more chemistry and biology). Have a fantastic Friday!
P.S. I tried my luck with HTML and reorganized my layout and made my photos larger! YAY!

I really love your new layout. The larger pictures make a huge difference, in my opinion. And your outfit is super adorable. I love the mix of browns, blacks, and yellow.

Natalie said...

Love love love love your list of happy things. :)

I am definitely feeling the tiredness and stress right now too. I am counting down the days until my spring break as well. And then the few weeks after that until summer. I am counting down the days. I hope we can both manage to survive!

I am quite a fan of your tights and boots, and I really like the sweater over the dress idea! More splendid Goodwill finds. :D

Most of the things you list make me happy too! :D
But yup, school is definitely suffocating me right now and I cannot wait for summer, since i already had my spring break :/
That yellow sweater is adorable and I think it looks very cute with a dress, not kid-ish at all.
Good luck with the rest of the school year darling, I know it's tough but hang in there!

I think you've inspired me to try the sweater over the dress look tonight - since it's still freezing here, but I want to look cute! That color yellow is fantastic :)

Your happy list looks a lot like mine. I love sleeping in and then having class at like 1 or something. Ah. To be in college. Sorry to hear your stressing. Hang in there!

Lovely outfit.
I use Windows Live Writer for my blog posts, you can have your pictures any size, with different frames like rounded corners or polaroids, you can change your font and colours. It's great.
