Where I go, I just don't know.

Sweater - Hollister, skirt - H&M, tights - American Eagle, shoes - Target

Yeah, all items from common stores. And I'm absolutely exhausted. I think I'll take a nap then proceed to scrounge up little morsels of food that might be hidden around my kitchen and watch Across the Universe.

This outfit was for a presentation. I'm not so sure if other people consider a tight knitted mini skirt and lace tights to be "career-like," but that clearly didn't stop me this morning.

Anyway, just going to rant a little: I'm tired of people and the disappointment they inevitably give me. Sometimes I know I have my hopes up too high, and I acknowledge that. But there's an extent at which I know it's not at all my fault. 'Cause I tend to blame myself frequently... and it's not that I'm looking for who I should point fingers at. But I did not set myself up for this, even though I probably do set myself up for disappointment often. And I know I don't deserve this. Repeated apologies and admittance of guilt aren't changing anything.

Doesn't make it better that people keep entering and exiting my life in irregular patterns. Doesn't make it better that I want to trust them, but can't.

Hope you're all well and possibly enjoying fall - can't believe it's late November! Where did the time go?!

Free at last.

Blazer - Silence and Noise, tshirt - Pacsun, necklace - via my mom, jeans - Pacsun, flats - Charlotte Russe.

I look exhausted, no? I'm glad today has been better overall than the past couple of days... thinking part of it is that I'm finally free from whatever obligations. Until 8am tomorrow morning, when I'll have to drag myself out of my house and to work... but that's beside the point. I think I want to bake some chocolate chocolate chip cookies (recipe here - they're soooo delicious).

My mom bought a huge bag of jewelry from our favorite thrift store, and this owl necklace was one of the necklaces contained in it. I know they were "in" a couple years ago, but I happen to like it, so I'll wear it.

And this blazer/blouse hybrid is the perfect alternative to a cardigan. It's lightweight enough that I can push the sleeves up without feeling trapped, and it's comfy. Now I'm wondering why I've worn it only once before.

Hope you're all well! xox Catherine

Don't Mess With...

Basically slouched over as I'm writing this. I arrived in Texas this afternoon and I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon. I'm more than ready for some good sleep - it's been quite a while since I've been able to get more than seven hours in with school and holiday hours at work.

I wanted to go to a vegan restaurant but it was closed by the time we were set to go. Bummer, it's closed on Mondays. Not that this is related, but my head is so silky and soft right now.

Going to pass out right now? Probably.

Hope you're all well, xox Catherine
