Skirt: Handmade by me Shoes: Vans sophies Jacket: Thrift store
Well, I have been super busy with college. So busy that I brought my drawing board(22 by 26 inches) to the coffee shop so I would not get distracted by my computer at home. I need to have all of my midterm stuff ready early because I am leaving for a week to go to Indian! I am so excited for the trip, I even spent $30 on polaroid film so I can take some really lovely photos while I am there. I also am so stocked just for the plane ride. My love for airplanes is ridiculous, when I am older all I could hope for is to have access to a small personal plane. But well, that is not extremely likely I suppose.
I also intend to do a tone of work on my strangers project.(You don't know about it?! Well find out here,http://strangerphotoproject.tumblr.com/)
Anyways, I will have plenty of things to post about when I get back. Goodbye for now!

Jacket and shirt: handmade by me Skirt: Romwe Shoes: Traffic
Don't these over exposed photos look grand? Ha, no. No they really don't, BUT I do appreciate this outfit a bit.
Also, my hair. I think it knows about as much about how it will fade as I do but honestly I like it!
Also, I intend to start making more posts about non-fashion things. Art and music mainly, but other things will slip in there. I have also been in a really strange mood recently, shifting from happy to sad at really stranger intervals.The good part being that at my doctor found a problem that may be the cause of that and it is easy to fix!
The funny thing is, though the skirt is for Margot and the Nuclear So and So's, they are not the artist for today. (Don't sell band tees? I will make my own! hahaha!)
Alright song time. I have been SUPER into Kimya Dawson and The Moldy Peaches recently. It makes me want to watch Juno non-stop. Kimya Dawson may juts be my current favorite human(joking, sort of)

Bonus track because I had too: Jorge Regula by The Moldy Peaches.

A couple ways to combat a sucky day.
No one likes bad days and if you do then I am not sure whether to praise you or be concerned.
Here are a way simple things that may help combat the amount of world suck (Thank you nerfighteria) you have crossed paths with today.
1. Anything but think about it.
No seriously, do anything to cheer yourself up while taking your attention off of the problem(s) at hand. Do something creative maybe or listen to really silly pop music and laugh at how terrible it is. Having a really average happy conversation or hanging out with a friend is always helpful too.
2. Take a walk or bike ride in a pretty place.
This is surprisingly helpful really. Just think of your favorite place and go there. Drive, walk, ride whatever you want. Just admire that place and the good points of it. I normally go to parks or the beach at night for this sort of stuff, but everyone has there idea of a nice place.
3. Literally swing-sets.
By this point you are probably certain I am a crazy person but no, I am so serious. Just go to a park and swing on a swingset, listen to some music if you want as well. The action of doing so takes motion and some amount of concentration which will help keep your mind clear, it is also fun as shit. Just give it a try, it may be less crazy then.
4. Have a solo mini punk festival.
Play some loud music, something aggressive. It can be anything you want, for this I always go to Nirvana but hell screamo fans will love this step. Head-bang, dance like an idiot, sing along(or yell along) until it just becomes fun. It totally works, I promise.
5. Be creative.
As I said in the first tip, create something! This works really well, maybe better then any of the other steps. Just get creative in any way, write a story, draw something, learn a song on some instrument, learn to play an instrument in the first place, file some legal paper, ANYTHING! Just create and do something and by the time you are done you should at least fell a bit better, if not ready to kick today's ass.
Well I hope my little tips will help some of you on your worst of the worst days. Have a lovely day everyone!

Dress: Romwe Shoes: Thrift store Necklace: Etsy
I am trying to get back into making more blog posts, so far I am doing alright haha. In all honestly I am not sure on this dress, it fits me sort of oddly. Then again the color is really lovely, eh I will suffer through looking like a vegetable.
So I started college about a week ago and so far it has gone pretty well! I will however say that it does make my schedule a bit more packed. I will also be posting some of my finished assignments sometime later!
