let's get real for a minute. you've heard about my no shower weekends (only when I don't do anything, which is often if we're getting real) and my no shower thursdays (no one looks good for 8am physics anyways and OH YEAH i don't actually care). but sometimes "No Shower (*insert day*)" happens on days when i do have people to see, things to do, and lots of classes to attend. on such days, i put my head into the least graceless bun (someone please send me a link to a messy bun tutorial on youtube because every single one i've tried fails me) on the street and wear my best crew neck sweaters. today, however, i realized.. it's okay. i can do this. how do i know? because.. i'm a ruchette. so obviously i'm really stylish and stuff. and i can do anything i want. so now i'm allowed to try every trend ever, right!? RIGHT!? i'm just kidding. but one can dream. mostly i'm just going to overanalyze every item of clothing now and ask myself if it lives up to Maggie The Ruchette instead of Maggie the 6/7 Days of the Week Unfabulous.
*kidding* i hope you all know me well enough to know i'm rarely serious, especially about myself. besides, you can't put a price on comfort and i was so cozy all day in this sweater and scarf i don't even care.
anyways, i had just about one of the most traumatizing mornings i've had in a while which included clumsily mishandling my scalding 3-minute-long-microwaved tea mug, spilling it all over my arm. instead of ripping off my shirt (the ONE time in my life i could have channeled my inner Jacob the Werewolf and it would have been completely practical), i rolled up my cotton sweater sleeve. which of course, held in the heat and burned my inner elbow skin and the whole rest of my forearm. to which i decided to run into my bathroom and then throw off my shirt and plunge my left arm into the shower blasting cold water. it wasn't really that awful, and mostly i'm telling you all this so that if ever such a circumstance arises, you will remember that i told this story and know to RIP OFF YOUR SHIRT IMMEDIATELY seeing as i can't bend my arm without wanting to cry and will only be taking cold showers for the next three days.
other than that, i'm enjoying the first true dead week i've ever had. mostly, this means reading a lot of Enews online (i'm cable-less because I refuse to give up my daily coffee money) about Will and Kate's baby and Taylor Swift and Harry Styles' New York cohorts. sorry, Taylor, you know I love you a whole lot, but i haven't been able to listen to John Mayer in the same way since Speak Now came out and i just can't let Harry be ruined for me, too.
