Just one day after returning home, I walked into the living room and my dad asked me, "Maggie, are you wearing Geisha makeup today?" Me: "No, Dad. I don't have any makeup on..." Him: "Are you sure? You look so white. Don't you ever go outside?" Yes. I am that pale. Pale enough that it looks like I am a Geisha. I guess this means I am living up to the pre-med student name? Pale skin and all? Ha. Ha. Ha. I guess if I'm going to slave my life away to studying chemistry and biology, I might as well try to laugh at myself. Right?!?
So far this spring break, I have not accomplished a fraction of what I said I would. What I have done? Start writing letters, watch the office, and take naps. What I haven't done? Do homework in a coffee shop, write, take pictures with my tripod, go to the post office, make a headband, sew, and read a book. I have fallen into this pit of watching tv for hours and waking up very late and not eating lunch until 4PM. It's terrible. Tomorrow, at least, I have a scheduled haircut in the morning and a job interview in the afternoon, so a productive day might be in the cards at last. Mostly, I've been cuddling and sweater wearing and movie watching and eating ice cream with Niklaas even though I'm not the one who got their wisdom teeth removed. Whoops!
I know, I know, I know. I've taken pictures in exactly this spot quite a few times now, which happens to be my home back yard. Someone commented and described it as "dreary" and I couldn't agree more! But for now, it's working and I kind of like it. So there. These shorts were one of those Maggie-Must-Haves-That-Never-Ended-Up-Being-Worn. I have many of these items. I just wrote a paper about clothing waste and the environmental impact of making clothes, though, so I'm trying to decrease that number greatly (seriously, researching this paper was way, way too informative and I may need to post it on the blog). I love the floral and I like the print and, well, I just like these shorts....but I don't wear them! Eeek!
I really had no idea how to style these up and ended up wearing solids on top and patterned tights. It ended up kind of funky and I'm not crazy about this outfit, but like most bloggers will say, you have to post things you aren't in love with. I am an ever changing camellion and while I probably will never wear this again, it was a step in the stairs to my personal style. Woot!
Well, it's past my bedtime. I'm way too excited for Thursday. A radio ad, three short texts, a few squeals, and $50 later and I have two tickets to Colbie Caillat. My sister and I are going to go wait in line for hours way too early and sing Colbie's lyrics back to her in the front row. Oh, and drool over Lee Dwyze from American Idol. I could not be more excited. At all. Dream come true! This is going to be a blog post in itself. Promise.
