Last time I wrote, I was obsessed with my hair.
You read that right. I was obsessed with my hair. I am now regretting bangs…sorta. While they are cute and spunky, they are high maintenance, and I am none the sorts. Hair is something I would prefer not to worry with because I prefer to fret over fashion. Will I get them in the future? I am not sure, but you never know. Sometimes, I underestimate my patience/personality, and bangs test my patience (symmetry IS everything) and personality (mine is often at odds with bangs).
I hope your Christmas holidays have been swell. (The above image is the only picture I have from our Christmas festivities!) This Christmas, I focused more on my next apartment…not that I know where I will be. A girl can dream big, right?! Anyhoo, I bought a new shower curtain, bath mat, bedding, and a bowl for my next destination. These items are minuscule in comparison to my larger list. I also bought a new outfit, an army-inspired coat without pockets (It is chic, but the lack of pockets is an inconvenience. I am oh-so bright for not reading the description.), and a denim jumpsuit, which I am in love with!
The images below were my mom’s Christmas present! A thought it was a great idea, and I must admit, now (I fought her on this), that it was. She hit it out of the park this year (which means next year’s gift has to be just as special…if not more). A had our high school drape pictures framed in the same frame from our pictures taken as one-year old babes! Such a sentimental gift, props to A for coming through this year.
Although I have bought items for my next apartment, I have also bought next semester’s books. I am probably the only strange bird waiting for class to begin again. I have always had an indifferent attitude about school. I do not hate it, but at the same time, I am not overly infatuated with it. I enjoy it for its central purpose. I am there to learn, and I enjoy learning.
With the semester fast approaching, I am also reluctantly preparing myself for the trip to Austin and the arrival of grad school decisions. Part of me wants to know the results, another part of me does not. Either way, I suppose they will come, and there is nothing I can do but await it. Decisions are set arrive between mid to late January and early February, so in the meantime, I hold my breath.
This weekend, I am going to Savannah and Pooler for a little post-Christmas/pre-New Year’s shopping. I do not anticipate buying anything, but I am looking for pillows to fit in my new pillow covers. Side note, I did not realize just how expensive home goods/furnishings are until now, but I digress and keep marking items off my list. Nevertheless, have a bright and cozy weekend (especially in Georgia, where it has been cloudy and rainy for weeks—it seems)!
