LOVE LOVE LOVE the overexposure in these pictures! Sometimes I (irrationally) with it were overcast every day so all my pictures would turn out like this :P I think they kind of look like the liner-pictures in a CD case (everyone still remember those dinosaur pieces of technology?). I actually got mistaken for Emily Haines when Billy and I were out for dinner a while ago! It pretty much made my... year? Haha! The title to this post is from Metric's "Help I'm Alive." Right before I wrote this post, Angie from Papillon Chouette posted a link to the music video, and it clicked that this lyric would be perfect for these photos and for my current mood!
I've had this H&M dress for a while. I got it on the sale rack for $7!! I love it, but kind of forgot about it after I bought it. I picked up this little t-shirt-cardigan thing (which I've had for probably 2 years and have never worn), and it clicked! I love the many-striped combination. I need a flat black wide belt (which I don't actually have one of), so I wore this patent black stretchy belt back ward for the effect!
I've been playing around with design ideas for my Etsy aprons, and I can't wait for the patterns to arrive! Unfortunately, the creative juices are blocking the motivation-to-study juices. Thankfully a read-over of my notes should be sufficient for these two exams, as they're my two better subjects this semester! It helps that Billy is studying too.
Foe some reason, I have this nervous feeling about the summer -- I'm not sure what it is, probably that I'm worried I won't be able to accomplish everything I want to, go on all the mini-trips I want to, and so on. Silly me! Summer is for relaxing, not for worrying :D
I also have to line up a photographer. I'm lending my camera to Billy to take to Turkey, but my sister has an identical one, and she's agreed to take my pictures... when she's here. She has a long-distance boyfriend who she goes to visit frequently, so I need to find fill-in number 3! I just find it kind of hard to relax enough to pose with people I'm not used to having pictures taken by. If only I had a fancy camera with a tripod and a remote! Someday ;)
Wish me luck with studying! Ahhhh!
