As I am supposed to be cramming for my last two APs, preparing for my upcoming finals, and writing my major portfolio essay, I am instead updating my blog. Which is okay, I feel, as I haven’t updated in a while.
It feels like summer outside, which is not fun. The summerness is mocking my struggling non-summer mentality required for my work. It’s not fair (and I think you’re really mean/I think you’re really mean….a mini title riddle).
I finished ‘Letters to a Young Poet.’ I underlined a lot of passages, but it’s really worth reading the whole thing (it’s not even that long). I am now reading a collection of short stories called ‘Late Victorian Gothic Tales.’ I read the first one, ‘Dionea’ by Vernon Lee. I have to say. It’s really weird. I also have my disagreements with the epistolary format; not my thing. Vernon Lee herself is kinda weird looking too (yeah, herself, it’s a pen name for Violet Paget). I think it’s her expression though:
I also have some outfit posts, from several days ago.
Tori helped me finagle these even though it was raining :) I got to use my favourite umbrella though!
umbrella, Top Shop | shirt, Primark | trousers, Gap | high tops, Converse | blazer, Korean wholesale market
Speaking of Tori, this is the dress she stole.
dress, Urban Outfitters | DIY blazer, altered from a thrift shop for my Snape Halloween costume | purple tights, Hue | leg warmers, Primark | hobbit boots, Urban Outfitters | necklace, Aldo Accessories
And finally, my AP Lit oufit (slash self-timer success at last!):
blazer, Korean wholesale market (yeah I wear it a lot) | my new favourite Great Gatsby tee (that NO ONE noticed), Urban Outfitters | striped shirt, J. Crew | skirt, I don’t know, it was a hand-me-down from my younger (but not littler) sister | purpleish tights, Urban Outfitters | yellow boots, Dr Marten | Shakespeare buttons, the Globe Theatre, Oxford Creation Shakespeare Company, and that bookstore in New Haven
You know what I really feel like right now for some reason?
This picture also makes me smile :)
Edit: Yes, a new theme. The old one kept cutting off my pictures. It took forever to finally get a picture to fit in the custom header. Oh well!
