You're the one for me, you make me so very happy...


I'm back...
After an extended hiatus I have returned to the fashion blogging world. While I can't claim I'm back and better than ever, today, in the whole process of putting together and outfit, talking outfit pictures and blogging about it, I realized how much I've missed this. I haven't done an outfit post since October. OCTOBER!!! I've had a difficult time lately finding out who I am in this wildly confusing time of young adulthood. I'm no longer a child, and not quite an adult. Just in limbo somewhere in the middle. Where I am in that vast gap between the two stages is what has been confusing me so.

If you haven't read my blog in a few months let me recap for you on my college experience...
I went through three roommates, made a bunch of friends, cut my hair, lost a bunch of friends, made a few best friends, gained the freshen 15, lost the freshman fifteen, tried to fit in, realized it was alright to stand out, joined a rock band, dropped my Biology major, discovered I was a pretty good poet, acquired an appreciation for geometric abstraction, cut my hair even shorter, decided to double major in English and Math, started writing songs, and died my hair blonde....

This year I have had to make a few really hard decisions in my life. One of the biggest was to stay at my college. Truthfully I don't enjoy it much. People there just don't get me, just pass me off as weird, or even worse, think that I'm aloof. It's a very homogeneous population, everyone’s the same. If someone is a bit different everyone notices and comments. It's frustrating to not be able to feel comfortable being who you are. However I've decided to stay there for one more year because 1) I have a scholarship and 2) my sister is there. And there are nice people there; I just had to get through a few rotten people to find the sweetest.  

Also this year I joined a band, Underwater Country Club where I play the cello. I wouldn't admit it to anyone (people mistake my introverted nature for boredom), but it's the most fun I've ever had. The music is great, the people are great, and the whole experience has made me a more independent person. You can buy our music on iTunes (though I'm not on that record), but our current music is a bit different now, with the addition of the violin and the cello, it's more of... how do I describe it... chamber indie rock. Think Ra Ra Riot, the Smashing Pumpkins, and a bit of Squeeze. We're doing a bunch of shows this summer so if you are in the Philly, New Jersey, NYC, or CT area, come and see one of our shows! It would be so much fun to see you guys at one of my shows. And they're usually free so that's even better. Now, not to sound like I’m promoting myself, but here's the website. And all of our other links (like twitter and Facebook) and shows dates are on there. This will be fun!
