Life is full of coincidences, right? For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been wanting to start blogging again. I believe I suffer from some sort of delusion in which I believe that I will have more time in the future than I do now, in spite of the fact that I have proven this thought WRONG so many times.
Imagine my surprise when I sit down to finally write a blog post and find that my last published blog post was exactly one year before! Crazy!
So here is my plan. I think in the past I’ve gotten stumped about what to write about, and I got bored with the same old thing. I’ve also done that thing where I start a blog for each specific topic that I want to write about, trying to have a focus. I’m not sure that’s really the direction I want to go, so I’m going to try harder to post about a few specific things — namely, crafts, food, and fashion on the cheap. We will see how this goes. I’ve loved making things for many years now, and I love to eat (and cook), and I’ve recently been inspired by Academichic to dress more like a grownup, which can be challenging when your main source of clothing is called “The Mall”. Do check out the link; those women work wonders with belts. So one of the new features, you lucky two readers out there, will be how I mix and re-match all of my random clothes and accessories. Ever wondered what a librarian wears? Well, you’re about to find out.
I will leave you with an outfit that I ended up really liking from a few months ago. Forgive the bad lighting – this was in March and after work, so my hair also looks ridiculous, since it had last been touched around 6:30 AM. Also, I was using a Gorillapod (technically a knockoff from Target, but I would definitely prefer the real thing) and the 10-second timer on my camera, so these poses leave something to be desired.
