Necklace - antique, dress - Plenty by Tracy Reese from Anthropologie, cuff - gift purchased in Saudi Arabia, shoes - Madewell
Today is oddly bittersweet. My brother graduated from high school today, which has had close to no impact on me other than that it’s been making me think about the past year since I’ve been out of high school. I graduated. I spent a summer frolicking in the sun and doing whatever before I flew off to London. And then I lived there for four months, then I returned. I started my American undergraduate education in suburban Philadelphia, and I finished my first year of university. I went to - and fell in love with - Los Angeles and discussed plans to move there by next summer.
I’ve done a lot - it’s been quite a year. But I feel like I’m in the same position I was in on this day in 2011. Only without hometown “friends” I spent time with in years past, and without the excitement of going to a foreign country, obviously. I just want to be somewhere else, several thousand miles west or east.
On another note, I haven't been up to all that much lately. I've been working quite a bit and not doing much else. My summer has been very lazy so far. I'm hoping to go to the beach sometime in the next week or two, but I don't know the likelihood of that actually happening...
Well, until later.
