Don't Forget the Lyrics

Jeez, I've been bad with this lately.

Recently, I've been saving up for some cute new stuff, but I can't decide what to get! Well, saving up for me really means not buying anything for a few weeks... But, hey, $150 can go a long way!

But figuring out what I'm going to buy is the least of my problems. Just this past week, I was assigned a project in school titled 'National History Day.' Intimidating title, huh? But it's a huuuge deal at my school. I was paired for with my friend Jess, and we have chosen the topic of mistreatment of patients in asylums. Fitting, isn't it? But it's a huuuuuge project. Just the research is supposed to take three weeks. Mehhhh. So, in honor of that, all of the 'inspiration photos' for today will be dark and creepy. Yay!

Yokohama prostitues, dead roses, Claddagh costume, and lonely scene.

Hold it against me

Went shopping the other day... And by 'shopping' I mean walking into Marshalls for about half an hour, and then walking out. We managed to buy $350 worth of random stuff. I was looking at a pair of lucky jeans, but... I just couldn't bring myself to buy them. I'd need to wear heels with them, other wise they'd by insanely long. And I'd need a belt. And I'm not really a huge wear-belts-to-actually-hold-your-pants-up sort of person. Besides. Belts just end up making me look like I have a muffin top if I cinch them tight enough to actually do something.

Anyhow, I got this really awesome Franco Sartos at Macy's (we went there at some point over the weekend). They're grey t-straps. First pair of Franco Sartos! I was surprised to find that they are insanely comfortable, although they have a two inch heel on them. Will I be wearing them to school soon? Definitely. They'd look pretty awesome with some boot cut or flare jeans, but I do not own any of those, because I just really don't like to try jeans on. It's depressing. -.-

And... Then I've got a retreat for my church this weekend. Snow. Ice skating. Broom ball. Sledding. Horse back riding. More snow. It should be interesting. Down side; cold, snow clothes make me look like a marshmallow, and one bathroom per 15 people. *shivers*

Mmkay. I just wanted to update. So. Yeah. No pictures, but hey, I posted something, right? Maybe something a little more interesting next time...
