Beginnings.

10 Jan

Ah, the first day of a new semester. All the status updates detailing schedules, bemoaning early morning classes, afternoon classes, and really just any classes in general. And of course the zealous students who are just returning to school after a hiatus, claiming “I love school!” and, “Can’t wait to start learning!” Let us all pause for a moment while I call bullshit on that. I used to be excited about new semesters too. Instead of one chance to reinvent myself every nine months, I got the chance to blossom into who I was “supposed” to be every 15 weeks! Imagine my delight in my second semester of college, returning to my sterile, newly constructed apartment, full of good intentions and aspiring to new, nay unreachable heights.

Fast forward three years. I should be organizing my new notebooks and textbooks right now, yet here I am, staring at my closet and keeping one eye on my new Urban Decay Book of Shadows eye palette. I unearthed a pair of white skinny jeans from the back of the deep abyss that houses my garments and now I can’t stop thinking about them. Those jeans, plus my new eyeshadows, makes it hard for me for to sleep at night, which is not great when I have to be up at 7 A.M. most mornings. They call to me, shining in the dark, pristine white, skinny and high waisted, just begging for a loose knit pink sweater and a copper smoky eye. I am too excited to sleep. Well, not really. I stopped being too excited to sleep when I found out the Halloween fairy was really my mom and she was stealing my candy, not taking it to Candyland and replacing my sweets with trinkets.

The inaugural post…

This is it, here goes. I have been meaning to start a blog pretty much since I found out what a blog is. I always figured since I spend most of my time reading other people’s blogs, I should try my hand at making one myself. I am not particularly tech-savvy, and I never really know what to say. This blog will hopefully help me to set some goals, discover my real passions, and stretch my idle mind when it feels dormant and dusty. There are some things I am absolutely sure about.

1. I think about food all the time.

2. My hair never does quite what I want it to.

3. My closet is a mess.

4. I am emotionally attached to my Kindle. ( Go ahead and hate.)

 

So, pretty typical for a college almost-junior. I work, alot. Retail hell, part-time, and I spend most of my six hour shifts imagining how much better my life would be if I didn’t have to sell overpriced lotion 30 hours a week to afford ┬áramen noodles and frozen peas. (I’m having a moment with frozen vegetables.) School has just barely started for the semester, so we will see how that goes. It always seems promising at first. I spend hours reading articles about how to succeed this semester, and 10 study habits to get in now, and somehow they never seem to stick past the first two weeks. It does help that my science classw doesn’t have a required textbook. Seems legit to me. I suppose I will go and figure out to post pictures now.
