Around Campus!

This is my 300th blogpost, can you believe it? I'm excited this post is being used to show you some show I took from around the school. I've been completely in love with this campus since I got here. The buildings are all so different and interesting.

As the semester passes I want to be able to show more pictures from around Midtown. Detroit is full of so many details it's easy to miss if you aren't looking. I've been trying to concentrate on looking at the things around me. I get so overwhelmed sometimes I miss out on what's really interesting.

Fatshion Friday - Actual School Cool

The other day I posted my dream school outfit, so here's one of my actual school outfits. It's all about comfort and ease of walking/climbing stairs when I go to school. I sort of hate that it's getting cold so early, but I'm really stoked to wear my jean jacket. ESPECIALLY with that amazing Sailor Senshi patch! I'm also super into that sort of wrap shirt I was wearing under it. It's by Te Verde and I got it from Von Maur. You can't really tell in the picture but it buttons at the shoulders, so it gives a sort of bandit vibe, without all nearly dying, which honestly is something I look for in clothing.

Looking at my clothes change over the years is so weird. Do you do that? I think people who share outfit pics have a sort of unique perspective as I have a lot of documentation of my clothing for the past 2/3 years. I've never been one of those bloggers who don't actually wear the clothes I post. 99% of the time the outfit I share is the outfit I wore that day, or on occasion the next day. I'm thinking it might be fun to make a little collection of fashion progression (regression?) and see what it looks like!

Wish I Wore - School Cool

Art School Cool

The first day of school has come and gone. By now we're all starting to settle into routines, and if you live in the midwest you're probably also digging out cardigans and hoodies a bit earlier than you thought you would. That's what this outfit is, half wish I wore, half ... I did wear. I have those shoes/pants/bag and they're all awesome. I especially love that bag because it's huge and you can fit SOOOO much. Like books, tablets, lunch, loaves of bread. All of it and then cart it around on your back.

The umbrella is for all the torrential rain we've been getting lately. Turns out every exit out of the city is a flood zone, so I'm feeling a bit like a need to build an ark, still, it's better than snow!

30th Birthday Fun!

My birthday was almost a month ago ... ok well 17 days. I can't believe it, it feels like years. I've been meaning to share some pictures from the little backyard get together, but time keeps getting away from me. Funny how it does that, isn't it?

It was such a great day and the weather almost completely held out for us, we only got about 5 minutes of rain after dark, not even enough to put the fire out. We roasted marshmallows and ate tons of food and I can honestly say it's one of the best parties I've ever had. It was a great way to start this last part of the year.

Things are shaping up to be very busy indeed. In the next month I have day trips to quant german villages, a 5k, a wedding and a craft fair! I don't know when I became so busy but the past few years have felt like a constant go go go. I'm not complaining though, someday things wont be so busy and I'm going to miss always having something to do!

Back to School!

Today is my first day at Wayne State University! Despite the fact that I'm going in as a junior I attended new student convocation yesterday. It was mostly geared at freshmen but I don't care. I've never had this kind of college experience. When I graduated high school I went out of state to culinary school. It was a great experience and I don't regret it, but it wasn't like this. There wasn't speeches and fan fair and student associations. I got a little taste of that today though!
I'm really excited to be heading back to school right in the heart of downtown Detroit. Over the past few months I've heard a lot of mixed things about the school, but the fact is there isn't a school I've looked at where people don't have bad things to say. School is a stressful time and people tend to focus on the bad. It's something I'm guilty of especially, this year I'm going to try and not get so angry and to learn to handle things more calmly. Focus on the positive! Like that building above, I get to take classes inside of it. I'm so lucky to even have an opportunity to go to the school of my choice! I can't wait.

New Hair / New Chapter

Sometimes when bad things that will change my everyday life happen, I throw myself into making a bunch of positive changes too. It's like I can cancel out that bad thing by making good things happen on top if it. I recently suffered a pretty significant loss. It's left me searching around for something to do to fill the void. First I engaged in emotional eating (like you do) and then threw myself into crazy cleaning. Now that I'm starting to settle into a new routine, I feel like I need more positive changes. Especially since tomorrow I start at my new school and on Thursday I turn 30 (eep!).

First change was to get a new hair color. I wasn't really thinking I'd go this dark when I went in. But now that I've done it, I kind of really dig it. Once upon a time I had black hair that I loved. Allergies wont let me go that dark anymore, but this is cool. Up close it actually kind of looks like the color of grape Kool-aid. It's really nice to have kind of a fresh slate hair wise. I was getting kind of stuck in a rut. It also helps me feel more inspired for revitalizing my wardrobe this fall! I want to bring back fatshion friday and share more of the amazing fashion I see around campus. Can't wait!

I'm glad to be adding blogging back into my routine as well. Sometimes it's hard to know what to say after you lose something, but I'm starting to find my voice again. Thanks for sticking with me babes.
