Thursday, October 22


I've become quite the workaholic. Staying on top of my workload means studying all afternoon, saving a an hour or two for a workout and dinner, and having just enough free time at night to procrastinate. I figured that my productivity peaks around noon and goes downhill from there, so I study mostly during the day. Studying at night is about as useless as my physics professor a dull razor. I hope that dull razor comment sounds as good as I think it does because it took me and my roommates a good five minutes of brainstorming to come up with. Other things that my roommates and I do include painting our nails, singing together, and taking pictures with this panda:


Isn't she a cutie? Really, though. I love my roommates. I even like (most of) the people on my floor. Well, I like the ones I've met. This is my RA, Ying:


She's small and Asian and so adorable. My RAs are usually the reasons I don't sleep at night. We stay up late and have long gossipy talks about dating and relationships and why nice guys don't finish last.

In other news, the virus that infected my roommates a few weeks ago has worked its way into my system. I've been sick since the weekend, but not according to this awesome thermometer:

not sick?

This is a reusable thermometer that gives an accurate temperature reading after sixty seconds under the tongue. My temperature on Monday (my sickest day) was a perfect 98.6, so no fever here. I've been so close to getting un-sick for two days now. Today, I gave in and bought Sudafed to clear my congested nose. Hopefully, the virus will be gone by tomorrow.

Someone dress me, please.

3rd Street

Wearing: Gap cardigan, random tank with Japanese girls and pagodas from Hawaii, Hudson jeans, Minnetonka moccasins, favorite bag

I spent today in Santa Monica with TJ. I love her. We thrifted at Goodwill, where I found my Halloween costume! I don't particularly like Halloween, but my friends and I plan to go to Knott's Scary Farm, so I was in need of a costume. Plus, Halloween is on a Saturday this year. Now I'm completely serious when I ask, what is there to do besides party? Anyway, after Goodwill, TJ and I headed over to Crossroads before we hit Third Street Promenade. We stopped at Urban Outfitters and Forever 21, but surprisingly came out empty-handed. I did, however, come out with the ghastly hat-glasses-scarf picture seen above.

Once again, I find myself quite lost stylistically. I'm still liking the dress-and-boots look, and I love that its simple enough for me to put together in my groggy morning state. I'm also in love with unexpected feminine details like ruffles or lace, but other than that, I don't know what to do with myself. I'm mostly having trouble dressing myself now that the weather is cooling down. Not that I'm complaining or anything... I love this weather, but what do you wear when it's too cold for skirts but too hot for jeans?
