Back to Blogging (I Think)

Soooo I haven't posted for awhile. Many reasons, school, work, not feeling up to leaving my house, etc. I have also become more and more weary of posting so many photos of myself. It's just kind of strange and I feel really narcissistic or something? I know this is a personal style blog but I guess I'm just not used to it yet. I'm sure other style bloggers feel the same sometime? Hopefully soon I can start meeting up with photographer friends again to take some outfit pics! In the meantime, here are a couple of outfits from a few weeks ago that I never got around to posting. Better late then never?

Also, I really like maroon socks for some reason. I think I have like maybe five pairs. And like no other socks. Hmmmm.

I'm not a good Adult

So basically I'm the worst "adult" ever. I make impulsive decisions. I'm not good at sticking with things. I do whatever I want. I'm really bad at managing my money sometimes. I don't have any motivation most of the time for anything. These things have been weighing my mind often lately. Due to some bad planning, and immature logic, I have just recently moved back to my parents house. Not necessarily a bad thing, i guess.I know I'm pretty young, whatever whatever. I just really enjoy being independent. I don't want to have to rely on others generosity to get myself by. I know I'm only gonna be there a couple weeks at most but I just feel really irresponsible about my current financial situation. ANYWAY, I love my neighborhood and will hopefully be returning soon. Beverly and I decided to enjoy my hood for a few more pictures a couple days ago before I moved. Oh and also I chopped hair in half. I'm not to sure if I like it yet.

Brand New Job!

Finally an end to my unemployment woes! Today was my first day at my new job waitressing at a little family owned Chinese restaurant. I will admit that I was a little nervous just because I have never really waited tables before but had in fact put a fake waitress job at a friends restaurant on my resume out of desperation to find a job...  I know, I know, not very honest but it wasn't even my idea in the first place, ok? Anyway, it worked out fine because it was really slow and waiting tables there is not to hard to handle with no experience. MONEY IN DA BANK!

Bevery took these cool pictures of me in the library last Friday because it was hella windy outside. I wanted to post them sooner, but thanks to a recent printmaking accident involving  my finger and a vengeful copper plate, typing has not been the easiest thing for me lately. My friend Aaron made me this awesome shirt last week and I couldn't wait to show it off!

What a Week!

Cool things that happened this week:
-My big sis came into town to visit from Ireland. It was so nice to catch up as I haven't seen her in almost a year and a half!
-I maaaay have found two jobs! I just have to remember not to become a rich snob and forget my friends when I'm BAWLINNN in a couple months. I mean, waiting tables at two very slow (possibly unsanitary) restaurants is the way to get rich quick AMIRIGHT?
-I have a big ol' crush on someone. Which is pretty cute for me, ok?

Ok, so I have discovered that I have absolutely no idea how to pose for outfit pics (this could be a replica of that scene from Titanic...if only I had a man...and a boat....and I were not in New Mexico..). I think I will get better and less self conscious in time. Plus I find it hard to even attempt looking even semi serious for some reason.

Print Pals

The weather here in Las Cruces is starting to get reeeeaal nice. And by nice I mean not as windy and cold as it has been the last couple of weeks. However, it's only a matter of time until it's unbearably hot. Beverly and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather yesterday. We were super excited to find this old school print shop, as we are both Printmakers. I think that's actually how we met....anyway, she was so kind to help me get this blog started and take some cool pictures!

Hello Hi

Hello there! (that's me up there)This is my first post ever. EVER! I'm starting this blog as something "fun" to do in my free time, as I have recently quit my job. Sooooo much free time. I'm hoping that this can turn into something cool. Maybe just for me to keep track of what I'm actually doing (proof to myself that I'm not just wasting away, unemployed), ya know?YA KNOW? This blog will follow my personal style as well as my adventures.
Have a great day!
