I like this dress, tagged as from Forever 21 but thrifted, and honestly I wish I'd done more with it but this morning was reserved for homework and I just didn't have it in me to put together an amazing outfit.  Midday I changed my shoes to wellies since it started raining and I came home and put on some makeup since I'm not a fan of naked face.  I also realized that my sweater was a bit gross in the pits so I changed to a fresh, clean one.  

Today was pretty awesome even though I spent two hours finishing the crazy outline story that involved a moon of Saturn being made out of cheese and the main character eating half of it, not my usual style.  I finally got myself out of the house sans makeup or lunch and started working.  I got to meet four foster puppies at my friend Kelly's house.  Adorable.  I continued working, got a deli sandwich and came home devouring it and two chapters of Margaret Atwood's Negotiating with the Dead. I went to class and we learned about character outlines and development.  It was my turn for our writer's workshop and it went really well.  I got some awesome ideas and feedback and some compliments that made me super excited.  I went to Whole Foods after and then came home and blubbered away at Michael.  I am so so so happy to be back in school right now and writing something other than a blog detailing my wardrobe and life.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying this and it will be awesome to look back on this year long diary/journey someday but I'm excited to really write again.  I never developed it and instead of sitting around sulking about it I'm actually doing something.  It sort of rules.  I do need to figure out how to work it into my life and continue on with our bedroom move and working and time management but I'll get there.  Baby steps. And now it's time for some homework and again I am super excited about it! Nerd!!!!
