I felt a little kooky in this outfit, but delightfully so. I've been told many times I look/act like a librarian, and this sentiment goes way back so it's sort of brought up a few negative memories, but I'm considering embracing it. I'd rather be librarian-esque than a Jersey Shore wannabe. Do people still use that word?

Today we were presented with a whopping 47 degrees, but I'm desperately yearning for even warmer temperatures. 70, 80, even 90 degrees, please? My day wasn't too eventful... glazed a few things in ceramics, listened to music and sulked over issues with a friend (ahem, a particular male friend) lingering from the weekend. And to write this post, I'm taking a break from my psychology homework. My life is exciting as it gets... I kid.

Sort of. I'm strangely content, and even happy. I acknowledge and know that in six months, my life could be completely different, involving different people and different places... and that scares me. But instead of anticipating it, I'm living now. And it feels wonderful.
