English Professor

Something about elbow patches make me feel like a college english professor. The one that looks over her glasses sternly and says words like "satirical" and "allegory" or talks about the clever conceit Omelas and how it speaks to the human condition. Or says things like "the denotation of a word almost always contradicts the connotation, that is, if you are judgmental like me."  The one who talks about how neologisms ruined the english language and how her student's anaphoric syntax is lowering her essay grades. Or talks to another student about how amazed she is with her pathetic fallacy and what an ingenious Hamarita she thought up for her protagonist.

Tights Like Stomata.

Eh. I don't really feel like writing a lot at the moment. 
I'm writing journal entries while listening to Bright Eyes...resulting in the most angsty journal entires that I have ever written. I'm still listening to Bright Eyes, so I'm gonna leave you with these photos before I write some embarrassing, angsty shit on here that I'll regret later. So yes, photos of my stomata tights.

CTOM 2 (January)

Here's the second creative thing I did this month that was not an outfit.
I don't know if you've realized in previous posts, but I am obsessed with eyes (as you can see here, here, and a billion other places as well) Drawing them, taking pictures of them and...just everything. I think eyes are absolutely the most beautiful things.
Anyway, here's a drawing I did of an eye. Enjoy :)

Summer In Winter

I wish it were summer right now. And due to the crazy hours of Bye Bye Birdie rehearsal this weekend I missed all the lovely summer weather that was going on this weekend! :( :( So I channeled my I-just-missed-a-beautiful-sunny-weekend-only-to-have-it-be-freezing-on-the-day-that-i-get-to-actually-go-outside-and-why-is-summer-so-far-away-and-why-do-my-teachers-give-homework feelings into this outfit. Unfortunately my summery vibes did little to quash the hatred that I felt for the lovely weather being  on the one weekend I actually HAD to stay indoors, as, instead of sending off glowing waves of heat to everyone around me as I had imagined, I sat shivering in the corner of the room wishing I was wearing more clothing. It's alright though, because I love this shirt. SO much. And that's all that really matters, right?
