It has been a LONG time since I updated. I have been busy with work, school, and the kiddies. Last weekend the girls (We can't call it a Girl's Night Out, so my Mom told me we should call it "Bitches Unleashed") and I went to a hookah bar which was very fun. We dressed up fancy, drank, smoked a hookah, and watched a bunch of crazy people dance to "habeena hebeena". At one point a guy started taking instruments off the wall. It was classic.
This week has been insanely busy so far so I am glad classes are out for a few days. I already have had tests in both Arabic and Physics so I feel like I am drowning in studying already. Work has been going exceptionally well and next week I start my new schedule which should alleviate some of the stress I have been under. A man friend (:)) and I went to the GGP company cookout which was interesting, although the whole thing made me a nervous wreck. I couldn't even drink because I was so nervous that I would act unprofessionally. I'm sure the guy thought I was nuts but we had a good time overall.
This weekend is hectic already. I am going to my friend Jared's birthday party/show tonight. I haven't seen most of my friends in almost 3 months due to work/school/personal stuff so I am really excited to see everyone again. Then tomorrow I am probably showing a friend around town that just moved here, going horseback riding, visiting a friend at her school and then driving down to Dayton to see some old friends and get drinks. Sunday I am going to hang out with my folks and Monday I think I am going to RELAX and work around the house...because I am a NERD and like housecleaning. Wow.
I am getting excited about October because not only am I having a huge joint-birthday bash with my neighbor Drew (his birthday is the day after mine) but I am more-than-likely going to Chicago for fall break to see my friend Ben and go to see Frank Lloyd Wright houses!! AHHHHH!!! I have $80 in etsy sales so far this month (thanks to my Mom helping me with the shop- she is amazing!) so I feel pretty confident I can make the $275 for my plane ticket by October. :)
I am also excited about going camping and end-of-summer trips to the great outdoors. I was talking with a friend the other day and realized that I haven't been camping or swimming in YEARS (edit: actually, I went swimming a few months ago; I forgot about that). I don't know why but I can't seem to get anyone to go camping with me..why don't people like camping?
I got the cedar and sage out the other day and am ushering in good karma for the new season. Monday I plan on spending the whole day putting up clothes, going through items, and downsizing a major amount. If there is anything I might own that someone has been coveting, let me know, because I might sell it to you for a reasonable offer.
Speaking of coveting, here is my "covet" list for this week:
"For the First Times Shoes" from 13bees, 72 usd.
Forest Fire T-shirt by sweetbabu, 23 usd.
Village T-shirt by timberps, 18 usd (yes, I totally bought one of these in a small recently- I love this company so much!)
"In the Light" print by groundwork, 30 usd.
I just got the new anthropologie catalog yesterday so I went on the site and fell in love with a few pieces (my birthday is coming up...ha!):
Sunlit Grove coat, anthropologie, 528 usd
And pretty much everything on this page.
And I completely love all of the stuff on this site, especially this:
Have a great holiday, folks!
