Damn girl- SO MUCH
Last night, due to an intake of an iced coffee at 10 am, I stayed awake until midnight. I used the time productively by cleaning my house and organizing things.
I was on my phone the whole time reading style blog that I found. It caused me to reevaluate my lack of style. I really do love beautiful clothes. It seems like my life just doesn’t allow me to live in beautiful clothes. My job is hanging out with a ten year old boy playing Xbox and reenacting scenes from Star Wars. And my free time is spent hanging out with my husband who isn’t Ito going to fancy places.
I’m ok that I’m not a Carrie Bradshaw. I mean, I don’t live in the most fashionable city or state for that matter. And that’s cool with me. I just know that I would like to look polished and thus more mature. So last night I made a list of what I like and don’t like in clothes and what I want to add to my closet. I think it is the first step for me to refining my style.
I like simple.
I like showing off my shoulders.
I like v necks.
I like collared shirts.
I like stripes
I like blue.
I like black & white.
I like bright pink.
I like navy.
I like jeans.
I like belts.
I like sweaters and blazers.
I like solid/simple scarves.
I like empire waists.
I don’t like beads/sparkles that will come off.
I don’t like crew neck shirts.
I don’t like skin tight clothes.
I don’t like a lot of jewelry.
I don’t like bra straps showing.
A sheer white button down.
A nice blue neutral skirt.
A fun skinny belt.
A blazer in black, black and white, and a fun bright one.
Cardigans in multiple colors.
A leopard print sleeveless shirt.
A second neutral flattering skirt. (A line? Pencil?)
A pair of comfortable boots for winter time.
One or two pairs of flats. (oxfords? Ballet?)
I’m not as excited as usual to go home after work knowing that I’ll have to clean up #1’s & 2’s from my kitchen floor.
Why don’t dogs just have the instinct to go to the bathroom outside? It would save me so many paper towels! Haven’t dogs been domesticated for like a thousand years, probably? If that doesn’t disprove evolution, I don’t know what does.
So I’m sitting in my car waiting for D to get out of camp and I’m sure as soon as I get engulfed in typing he’ll show up. I think it is one of those Laws of the universe. Like as soon as you’re ok with waiting for something it either really makes you use all of your patience or it arrives in milliseconds.
Well, what do you know? It’s 3 hours later and I finally have free time to write. What a crazy universe we live in.
Life is about to get really crazy. After a longer than desired hiatus from college, Justen and I are starting the process of re-enrolling and going back to college! I’ve changed my major to speech pathology (!!!!!!) and Justen will be majoring in radiology, probably.
Justen has had the hardest time figuring out what he wants to major in. He’s changed from criminal justice, psychology, sociology, and physics. Poor guy just has too many options! Can you imagine even considering physics? I can’t! Who does that?! [Answer- one of the fictional guys from The Big Bang Theory.]
Anyways, we were looking at schools in Colorado but out of state tuition is CRAZY EXPENSIVE HOMIE. So we figured that we can stay here for our undergrad and aim to go to the same grad schools if we still want to move to Colorado. Justen spent 3 hours hunting university’s that has both of our majors. Apparently Louisiana’s budget cuts are majorly affecting the degrees that each university offers. Southeastern lost 26 million dollars from state funding this year. According to what I read on their website they lost 58% of their usual budget, but don’t quote me on that.
Since I’m going into speech pathology, I have to have my masters in order to be official and make the big money. Justen has yet to decide if he wants to go to med school (11 years of school! Yeesh!) or something else. It’s too complicated for me to keep up.
Anyways, We need a school that we can count on being their for the next 4+ years. We’re putting our money on University of Louisiana at Monroe.
Things are not as definite as I’d like them to be, there’s still a lot of things we have to do. But OMG I AM SO EXCITED. I’ve been to ULM once and I loved it! It’s such a nice campus and it’s not that far from family. And it’s about time I get back on the figurative school saddle.
