FREEDOM! A couple of hours ago I FINALLY finished my last exam, and I feel as if a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders! I double checked with my counselor today and all I need to do is finish this online computer class this summer and I will have an Associate's Degree! Not too exciting, considering I can't do anything with it, but it's nice knowing I have a degree at least!
I will finally be able to get back to outfit posts and shop listings! I cannot express how crazy the past few weeks have been. I was studying nonstop and would often be at school from the wee hours of the morning until it was dark outside. This has definitely been my most challenging semester, but it's all over and I will never have to take another general ed class again! Tomorrow I'm going to orientation for ODU and I am so excited/nervous/anxious to sign up for my speech pathology classes..!
Ya see that scar on my arm there? One of the things I miss about my blog is telling you guys about all of my little mishaps! On a busy Sunday morning at Starbucks a few weeks back, a pitcher of extra hot milk was on the steaming wand (and was about 170 degrees at the time), fell off, and just so happened to splatter all over my forearm. At first I thought it was ok so I kept making drinks but it started to feel really tingly and I look down and the skin is peeling! Yuck! It turned out to be a pretty nasty burn. Fun fact, huh?
This dress is one of the most beautiful I own. It's from the 50s and the pastel blue shades are just so completely dreamy. I have a feeling this will be my go-to dress. There aren't really a dozen ways to wear this one.. maybe change the shoes, accessories, etc.. but I really think the dress speaks for itself and doesn't need to be accessorized too much!
Well, these pictures were taken last weekend at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. The last time we went was when we took pictures for my "All the Colors Fade" outfit post! The gardens looked so beautiful with all of the flowers blooming! It's what I considered my first real day enjoying spring. We danced and sang and skipped and were just so goofy the entire day, it was honestly the most fun I've had in a while! A bunch of old couples kept walking by and smiling at us.. I like to think that we remind them of their youth, young & in love! I leave you with some of our goofiness. Right after these pictures were shot, it started POURING down rain and we had to sprint for about 5 minutes all the way to the car! Such a good memory, though.
(That's it! I told you I love simplicity with this one!)
Currently playing: Anchor & Braille, "Blur."(Any Anberlin fans out there? Anchor & Braille is lead singer Stephen Christian's acoustic side project. He wrote many songs that he felt didn't go with the vibe of Anberlin and were far too personal for the band & those songs are now available on his new album, "Felt." Definitely worth a listen, I'm hooked!)
