night class

here is it, my first semester of grad school. starting mid-year makes me feel a little like an outsider. in my lapses of overconfidence i like to think i come of as mysterious, but who am i kidding - loner alert!

when i got into grad school i rewarded myself with what else? - a bright blue bookbag! this sucker doesn't make me stand out or anything - right?

so here's to the next 2 years of case studies, caffeine addiction, gut-wrenching stress, and (hopefully) much fulfillment. but in 20 years from now, i hope to dig this blue bookbag up from the back of my closet, just to make me cringe (okay, and maybe smirk) at the thought of grad school.

im up in the woods/im down on my mind

living in a basement apartment, in upstate new york, amidst an oncoming winter season, there is always potential to feel trapped. i, however, have decided that i am just retreating to my "cave in the woods" each evening. and if i could have it just my way, i'm pretty sure the following would be keeping me company in the following cold months.

miles of aisles.

the time has come (the walrus said...) okay, okay, enough with the cutesy shit, let's try this again - and this time i mean it! i'll blame it on a lack of direction as to why i have had trouble updating here. i was so keyed into having a clear, concise plan for this space that i think it left a bad taste in my mouth. so for now, it's just me - what inspires me, makes me smile, makes me mad - whatever! i think in the midst i'll find my direction, so for now, here's to a long time coming. see you soon..

the huntress.

i've been holding off on any big purchases since the xmas season, but i can't help myself anymore! i'm jaded from the winter blues and i need some retail therapy. i'm heading off today to the mall to spend some gift certificates i stuffed in my wallet 2 months ago and then hopefully hit up some vintage stores this afternoon. i'll post my finds a little later, but i'll leave you with this for now:

I was so disappointed that i missed out on the incredible deal giltfuse was having on these jeffrey campbell boots i've been lusting after for the past few months. Regularly $275, they had a limited pair for only $139 if you sign up on their site. I am now on the hunt for them at an equivalent price, being that I promised myself no more than $150 for shoes (for now...)

however, i moved on pretty easily when i persuaded myself that i deserved this awesome jacket from nasty girl vintage for missing out on my boots. ...yes - it doesn't take too much convincing. it can be worn multiple ways and will be great for the upcoming (wishful thinking..) transition into spring.
