mediocre: a brief update

Today was D-Day, as in the first day for me at the University of Tennessee. It is VERY different from the last college I went to, and it took me 35 minutes just to find a parking space. So far my classes seem fun but these will be the difficult ones: Arabic and Elements of Physics(for Architecture). The professors are really nice though, so this seems like a more positive experience than it could have been. I am soooo ready for cooler weather- the humidity was so bad that by the time I made it back to my car, I looked like death! I have to work full-time as well, so I have been coming to work very early (6:30 am) and leaving late (6pm). Oh's just another 6 years! :) But all in all, once I figure out the parking situation better, I think things will be great. I am much older than everyone on campus, apparently, so it is pretty weird to be back in school after such a long hiatus but I figure if I bust ass I will be out in no time.

I can't wait to go home, make some chai, clean up the house, and do some homework. Yes, you heard me- I can't wait to do homework. Wow. I am going through the great debate right now: to delete or not delete my Facebook/Myspace/Twitter? It is so hard. I want to keep in touch with everyone but with the advent of technology I feel further away from folks rather than closer. Out of the hundred or so people I hear from every month, only a handful contact me outside of Facebook. I want to "like" something in person rather than pressing a button, you know? The debate rages on...

Is it wrong that I am still utterly obsessed with Lookbook and Wardrobe Remix? I can't seem to kick the habit. Also, am I the only one not impressed by the new designs coming out of Urban Outfitters lately? I didn't see one thing I even remotely liked. It is just too American Apparel chic for me. I just expected so much more from that company, I guess. Maybe I am still just an anthropologie and toast fan after all.

This fall my color palette is probably going to include lots of neutral tones along with goldenrod, pea green, and cerulean blue. I am going to work all weekend on downsizing my wardrobe, which is sad but necessary.

Oh well. Back to the grindstone. Hopefully I will be able write more later! Things are insane. Speaking of insane, how crazy/wonderful are these etsy finds?:

I love the details of this heron blouse by hierapparel. Chicago represent! 80 usd.
Strange Pursuit Top by iheartfink. 65 usd.
I love these Tinkerbell Ballet Flats by spirocreations. 175 usd.
