Don’t really know what to say here anymore. Or why I keep posting here in the first place.
As I mentioned before, I got two new dresses from Modcloth during their 70% off sale. This was my first Modcloth purchase ever and I am quite excited about it and wish they would have more sales like that more often. Both dresses are way too big, but since they were on sale, I couldn’t return them. I am making do for now, and if they get too big (one can only hope), I will have them altered since they are quality dresses.
I really need to find some decent shoes to wear with dresses. I am terrible at shoes. Suggestions? I don’t know if I can do heels without dying, but I think they would look better.
August did not quite go as I had planned. Not in the slightest. And now we are in September.
Happenings of August –
– Met a new friend – kinda sorta.
– Got two new dresses from Modcloth.
– My back went out and I ended up being stuck in bed for a week and a half. I also made my first visit to the ER.
– My sister came to visit during my back being out and I couldn’t really do much with her.
– Had a terrible meal at the Melting Pot.
– Drove my sister home from DC to South Carolina. Stayed down south for five days.
– Went to my first Yelp Elite event.
– Ate a shit ton of dessert Skittles.
– Got an awesome package from a friend.
– Started School.
– Our air decided to break on some of the hottest days, but its fixed now.
September is off to a decent start, I suppose. I’m trying to get into the groove of things and manage my time more efficiently.
There’s nothing better than writing in a brand new notebook. I don’t know what it is, but its almost the same feeling as laying in a bed with clean sheets.
I decided to start a new notebook to keep up with daily tasks & important dates. I guess a planner without having to buy an actual planner. I mean, I would like a nice Filofax, but that’s not happening right now.
I’m kind of on the fence about starting school, I’m definitely going to go, but I don’t really have much desire. However, when I start thinking about using shiny, new school supplies I get excited. I probably mentioned that before, but I really enjoy paper goods and pens & pencils.
Next week I go and buy my books and my sister comes for a visit. I’m looking forward to both of those things.
Really digging this song right now. Embarrassed that I actually like a Hot Chip song. I don’t know what that says about me as a person, though. However, it makes me want to chair dance. It induces the wiggles!
Last night I had a dream about Ziggy. I was searching all over for him and calling everyone that I knew trying to track his whereabouts. Everyone I called or talked to kept telling me that they thought so and so had him and it was always a different person they mentioned.
I was getting so frustrated, but then I was in a campground of some sort and I found Ziggy. He was just wandering about and I picked him up but I wasn’t sure if it were him. His name on his tag was different, but he still had the blue tag with the paw print stamped on it, so I knew it was him. His tag showed that his name was now Grumbley.
I went out of the camper I was in and his owner was out there kinda yelling about, but was in a hurry because they had to leave for whatever reason. Kinda like they were up to illegal shenanigans and were on the run. I didn’t really care, but I was dead set on keep Ziggy there with me no matter what.
I’m not really sure what happened, it just kinda ended like that. But I was so happy in my dream that I was crying.
Now all day I’ve been just plain out sad, missing my dog. I think about Ziggy all the time and feel like its my fault he isn’t with our family anymore. At least he is still alive and with another family that probably loves him just as much.
I was inspired by Erica to make a nebula and then it ended turning into something more. I shared this on Instagram, but I thought I would share it on my blog, as well. I used acrylic paints and glued on tiny silver stars. Its not perfect, but I really like it. I like it so much that I may even frame it and hang it up somewhere.
I feel kind of motivated to paint something else, but I am not really sure what at this point. I’ll figure it out and possibly share my creations here.
Holy cow! Its August!
Things I am looking forward to this month:
Getting two new dresses in the mail from Modcloth.
Possibly going down to South Carolina for a few days (that one is not set in stone yet but I want it to work out).
Watching more Doctor Who.
Short term goals for the month:
Fix my sleep schedule before I start school so its not so rough.
Ride at least 10 miles on my bike.
As always, I had a little photoshoot with myself after getting my hair done. I don’t know what it is, but I getting my hair done always makes me feel like a million bucks. I just wish I could either do it myself (Ok, I know how to do it myself by now, but I am kinda lazy) or had an unlimited supply of money so I could go to the salon more often than I do. I fortunately got enough birthday money and I immediately booked myself an appointment.
I like how Oscar decided he wanted to be in the picture, too.
This is my very sparse living room, but I finally got around to hanging my stuff back up on the walls. I made Oscar sit there because he kept running around under my feet which I find annoying. Some annoying dude came knocking on the door during my photoshoot. He was just rambling on how he wanted to cut our grass. He really didn’t make any sense.
I decided not to wear a dress for my photos because mainly I am tired of the ones I have. I haven’t found any good ones this year other than some online and I don’t have 80 dollars to drop on a dress. It makes me super anxious to think about the things I want and the lack of money I have. $_$
