Music Monday

I've decided to do a new feature on my humble little blog! I've been thinking about this for a couple of weeks, but I've been too busy to start it yet. I debated for days what sort of feature I wanted to do, how frequently I would do it, what the criteria would be the for the feature, etc. After going through a few options that were decidedly not me, I stuck upon Music Monday. It's pretty self explanatory. Basically, every Monday I feature a new song that I like based on a number of different factors including(but not limited to) how I'm feeling, my plans for the day, a song that inspires me, and so on and so forth.

Today was a little stressful for me. After getting very little sleep, I spent a long day cleaning, studying, doing homework, sort of packing, job/apartment hunting, wrangling my dog, and trying to remember to blog. Needless to say, I'm exhausted. Today's song is inspired not only by my intense need to sleep, but also because the lyrics remind me to try and be happy even in stressful times. You never know when your time might be up.

Thrift Store Haul

Happy National Thrift Store Day! Actually, it was yesterday, and to celebrate this wonderful obscure holiday, I went(take a guess) thrifting! I was running errands so I only had time for one store, but I scored a few awesome pieces that I just had to share. I was going to post this last night, but I got distracted playing W.O.W. Yep, I'm a super nerd, and damn proud of it! On a side note, I finally leveled my Paladin to 85. Go me!......Anyways, on to the goodies.

                                                                           1. Two cool new t-shirts
                                                      2. An awesome pair of blue vintage jeans(DIY project anyone?)
                                                               3. An amazing vintage, Gothic-inspired, velvet dress
                                        4. The greatest vintage satchel in the world, and a very cute vintage gold purse

So there you are dear readers. The rewards gained from one of the greatest past-times the 21st century has to offer. Maybe when you're older, I'll tell you about the first vintage item I ever owned ;D. Enjoy your afternoon blogoshpere!

P.S. A belated Happy National Left-Handed Day to all of my fellow lefties out there! (It was Aug. 14)

As Autumn approaches...

Despite my hatred of cold weather, I absolutely love Autumn! My birthday is in October, as is Halloween(my favorite holiday). The weather isn't completely miserable. For students it means a new year and new beginnings. Plus, the fashion possibilities are pretty much endless.

This year, Autumn is bringing very big changes for me. I'll be moving up to Oakland in just a couple of weeks(when I find a place that is), and after a 2 year hiatus, I'll be going back to school. I'm so excited for the new life I'm about to start, and of course a little nervous as well. I've lived in the same house for 21 years. I've never moved before. How do you do it? No seriously, where am I supposed to start?
