I found a dead fly in my room today. Initial reactions usually include "ew" or "gross, this needs to go" but as for me, I find it quite pretty. I definitely need to find a way to better capture the true beauty of the lifeless fly, but this photo will have to do for now.

I'm thrilled to say that I feel like I've been getting involved a whole lot more at school. For one thing, I'll be taking street style pictures for a website called Her Campus. I'm nervous about having to go up to people and asking to take a picture of he or she and also asking for information regarding who that person is- but I'm sure it'll get much easier after the first bunch. Be sure to keep an eye out for it! I'll post the direct link when it's up and running. I've also been styling for a super wonderful online fashion magazine called Thread. CHECK IT OUT! Hopefully, it will end up getting some recognition. No classes tomorrow, but I do have some photo shoots to attend and aid. Looking for smooth sailing...

Here's the painting I promised! I wanted to allow it to dry completely before taking some pictures of it. I just used acrylic paint and a piece of cardboard ripped off of a box from moving in. I prefer using such a canvas because then if I end up hating my creation, or totally eff up my shiz, then money spent doesn't end up mattering.

Firstly: I'm so happy for all of the positive feedback from my last post! Thank you all!
but in the meantime...
I have half an outfit post for today, no there won't be another half. It was raining so I look extremely similar to a poodle getting a bath. Ignore that if you please...
I went for some primary colors today between the yellow sweater, red lips, and turquoise necklace.
I was also feeling crafty today so I decided to bust out the paints and create some ART! I'll post the finished product sometime very soon!
Sweater: Goodwill (borrowed from a friend), Necklace: Amrita Singh

As of late, I have been feeling rather like a walking coat rack on the sidewalks. SO MANY LAYERS- and I'm such a bitchin' baby about the cold. Pretty sure I'm about to start wearing ski goggles around so my eyes will stop watering and maybe then, I'll actually be able to see where I'm walking and, in return, not bump into people, spill my coffee, and then fall on icy bricks. Wouldn't life be wonderful then? Instead I'll probably just hide out in my room fearing the winter world outside my 9th story window...so far away and warm.
In the mean time, I feel like my poetry class is rubbing off on me in many ways. For one thing, I tend to make poems out of every situation I'm in. Example A is my horrid, unbearable philosophy class. However, I will not share that terrible Silverstein-like work because, well, frankly I think I threw it away after class was over.
2 minutes later...
Yes, upon the careful inspection of the crumpled "notes" in my purse, I can confirm that the extraordinary poem has been placed into my empty coffee cup and placed in the trash on my way out the door. No regrets. I'm sure there will be many more of such travesties to come. Anyhow, I also find that writing poetry can be quite a nice way to make the simple things in life important. I'll probably add a poem in a later post just cause I wanna be all professional-like and whatnot and revise, revise, revise! No, not really. I just don't feel like typing it. Lazy ass.
PS. DOES THIS FONT MAKE ME LOOK LIKE I'M SHOUTING?? I just really like to read big letters, it makes it look like less is there. And makes me feel like I'm in first grade again...which is nice.
