le writer's block

I can't believe it's been nearly three months. I'm pretty sure I made a resolution to blog more, but you know what they say about resolutions. I'm not sure if this blogging thing is really going to work for me, since I'm terrified of becoming an angsty 14 year old with a Xanga, and there aren't so many cool things going on in my life to share that aren't boring school/ life things. Well, I kind of take that back. I went to Bordeaux and San Sebastian last week, and they were "cool." I escaped the London rain which was crucial, and I'm doing it again next week. Hallelujah. Classes finished and everyone is freaking the fuck out about all of our papers and exams that are due at the beginning of May while we're also technically supposed to be doing dissertation nonsense. I'm boring myself so I am officially done with school talk. All I have to say is that thank sweet baby Jesus that I didn't go to law school, because there is enough competitiveness and peer-induced mania to last me a while.

I've been picking my classes for school next year in California and zomg they look cool, but as one friend described it course registration feels like a bloody Ponzi scheme where half the classes that are supposedly available don't really exist. Or have some other complication involving wait lists and petitioning. But let's be real if it's a course on tween media it's basically meant for me so the effort is probably worth it. Once again I have fallen into horrifying school talk, so instead let's look at some of the wonderful things I might make my parents bring me from AMERICA when they come to visit. Because in some areas this country is seriously lacking and I've heard the U S of A is a lovely place.

The irony of getting Liberty-print flats imported is not lost on me, but how freaking cute are these? J. Crew flats are just the best.

Ditto, but these can be used as self-defense. What up.

This shit gets the job done, and by job I mean putting some color into my lifeless pale as a corpse face.

This necklace is technically from J Crew's Crewcuts line, but I swear I'm not a pedophile for looking at that section of the website. It's no Limited Too but this stuff is just really freaking cute and I can only fit into the jewelry and that's the only justification I need, mkay?

If you think about it everyone needs a snake cuff in their lives, and Alkemie saves the world or the babies or something with their jewelry, which is a plus.


  1. Welcome back! I've missed you.

    I don't think you're creepy at all for looking at the Crew Cuts website. In face, do you remember when we used to look at the website during work to pick out which kids we wanted to have? That was creepy.
