the flood

Ok, so I know I've been pretty bad about posting lately. And I know I told you I had something crazy to write about. So I will, but it seems way less intense now. 'Cause you know, it was awhile ago.

We had some INSANE flooding a few weeks ago. Biggest flood since 1990, at the least. Eh, pictures show it best. My mom took some of these since I was shooting for my photography class.

Yeah. That was a LOT of pictures. It was pretty crazy and pretty awesome. I went snowshoeing today, I'll post some pictures from that later.

lazy blogger :(

I've been a bum of a blogger lately. It's been quite awhile since I last posted. And for that I am sorry. Also, I need to work on some homework (I got my due dates mixed up so I didn't have my math homework homework, and I also wasn't ready for the quiz today. Ugh, bad start to the year.) so this post will be less wordy than usual.

First, I have an outfit from school. Since the new quarter just started, I decided to dress up. Yes, I'm a dork.

shoes - shoe pavilion (I forget the brand), tights - target, coat - old navy, scarf - thrift store

dress - romy, sweater - uniqlo (thrifted)
My mom took these pictures are, so I apologize for the poor quality.

Next, I wore this for the midnight showing of Wet Hot American Summer (one of my favorite movies) at the Egyptian on Friday. Nothing special, and I didn't even get a full length shot. (It was late when I got home, what can I say?)

shirt - gramicci (thrifted), chinese bone necklace - vintage

Lastly, I have a picture left over from when we had all that snow. I made snowmen with Amanda, but the ball of snow got so huge I could barely roll it.

I couldn't get the rocks to stick in for his mouth so he looks a little wonky. Party pics with snowmen! Silly faces all around.

I have some craziness to talk about, but I'll have to save that for my next post. The schoolbooks are calling!

P-A-R-T-why? 'Cause we got to!

As I write this I am eating leftover thai food (yummy spicy green curry) but I just got home from a kinda sketchy party. Most of the people there started drinking around 4 this afternoon and you could tell. I got hit on by a Samoan with a girlfriend that called me "girl with glasses" and a really skeevy guy kept trying to dance with me and my friend. There was also a guy that seemed to be on the verge of getting violent and actually may have hit a girl in the other room. We didn't know any of these guys but that didn't stop them from repeatedly hugging us and not letting go. I did get to see two friends that I hardly ever see, but apart from them and the girl I went with, I knew no one. We left early.

I don't have outfit pictures from tonight because I look gross. No makeup except some smeared remnants of last night's eyeliner, glasses, tshirt, sweatshirt, jeans, sneakers, yucky hair. Boring and ugly.

Last night I went to a party in Seattle. A friend of mine just moved out of her dorm and into an apartment so she and her roommates threw a party. I went with a car full of friends from my town, including an awesome kid I haven't seen in probably six months. They're a really fun group of people and it was great to hang out with them all again. My friend's roommates are all really nice too and there were some cool people at the party. I ended up getting pretty drunk, but not trashed, so it was good. Near the end of the night there was a big fight about whether X-Men or Power Rangers were better, Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Iron Man or the Dark Knight. It was hilarious.

t-shirt and jeans - pacsun, sweatshirt - found/stolen american apparel, scarf - urban outfitters, earrings - christmas present, shoes - vans

Pacsun is really not my style, but I love their v-neck tees. A boy at the party last night was complimenting my friend and I on our v-necks (both from pacsun) but he was all about the American Apparel. While I love American Apparel, I love a good deal so much better and I can get a v-neck that fits exactly like I want it to (a little baggy and loose) from pacsun for $3.50. Including tax. I picked up like six more of these today, mainly in bright colors, but I got an extra white one and 2 black ones too.

I also went to the thrift store today and got a skirt and a dress. I hardly ever try stuff on at the thriftstore because their changing rooms are gross and it turns out the skirt is too big and the dress too small. The skirt fits at my hips but looks way better at my waist, so I think I'll take it in. It's wool, bias cut, and a little past my knees. It looks sort of seventies-ish to me. The dress I have less high hopes for. It's a khaki shirt dress that I thought would be nice for the summer, with a colorful silk scarf around my neck, but it's really tight, the buttons gape, and the band on the sleeve cuts into my upper arm. I am hoping to loose some weight (actually more just get toned) so I may be able to fit into it later on but I'm guessing this one won't work out. If it doesn't, I'll be looking for another khaki shirt dress, as I love the safari vibe it has.

pewter bird necklace - vintage, peacock earrings - christmas present (bought on etsy)
