One Item Several Ways #1

Remember this dress I posted up a while back where I said I would do one of those posts where I try it on a million different ways and see what kind of coordinations look best? Well I did attempt it earlier this month but I really only got four decent looks out of it based on what little I have sitting in my dorm room closet. 


Here goes:


1.) 



Here I paired the dress up with some black leggings, striped socks, my trademark biker boots, and a pinstripe blazer I picked up at a thrift shop a while back. Not the best look, but for a casual day....


2.)



Goodness, these pictures really are shite, aren't they? Anyways, here I wore it with a faux leather vest, some simple flats, and a bit of statement jewelry. It makes for a great daytime look in the summer and transitions well for a night out also.


3.)



A little bit more school girl, I guess. I exchanged the vest for a ruffled black one and added some knee socks. A side ponytail makes it a bit girlier. 


4.)



This was mostly just playing around. I thi…

Gothy Goods Haul

Like I said in my previous post, I did a bit of shopping over the weekend (or rather the boyfriend bought me lovely new things to make me smile) and I promised to post pictures. So here we go!


This purse is a $12 Walmart find. It's really cute and quite roomy on the inside too. I like how it kind of resembles an old traveling bag or perhaps a physician's satchel full of obscure looking tools.  Granted, it's a touch more modern and has some cute dangly bits hanging off it!

I also found a cheap pair of jeans whilst at Walmart and a pair of black trousers, but alas I completely forgot to take photos. I'm wearing the jeans today, however, and I think they're my new favorite pair. The button clasp features a yin-yang image of Egyptian-esque felines and there is similar embroidery on one of the back pockets. I adore cats....so naturally I needed to own these.

I needed to use my Target coupon as well, since it was a 20% off coupon for women's dresses and Target curren…

A Long Weekend

After Chris showed up on Wednesday night, we went uptown to track down the Panda Express. It's one of the few Chinese places in St. Cloud I hadn't eaten at and I wanted to give it a go. I don't know if it was just me being in one of my moods or if the food really was just crap, but I didn't enjoy it. I might have to try again when I'm in a more forgiving state of mind. Perhaps once it warms up and I can spend the day outside of class wandering around that part of the city...


After that we went to the Pagan Alliance meeting. Silver taught us the very (confusing) basics about crystals and after that the whole thing devolved into a session of stupid Youtube videos. Although, if you haven't watched Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time....you should. It's pretty hilarious.


I also made a decision that night. I decided to skip the next two days of classes and go home early. Chris, rational guy that he is, wasn't so keen on this idea at first but he eventually warm…

Bloody Hell...

I was going to wake up at 7 am today and go down to the cafeteria for pancakes. That was the plan. When my alarm went off I looked at it, shut if off, and then went back to sleep. I pretty much slept through my first class and didn't care. I had cereal whilst in my pajamas and only ventured out of the room to pee. Then I came back, made an attempt at getting dressed and cleaned up my room. I didn't go to class at all today.


It's...not been a good day. I'm hanging on by a thread.







My aim was sort of gothic-victorian-schoolgirl but I'm not entirely sure if I achieved it. I admittedly have a limited wardrobe here at school. 


Chris is coming up tonight....that'll be nice. He likes showing up for the Pagan Alliance meetings and has expressed interest in learning about the Norse path. I think that's great...it would probably suit him. That, and dragon work. ^_^


I've been contemplating buying a few new witchy books for myself as well. A few about summoning spirits …

A Personal Lamentation

Things are, quite simply, not going well.


The week started off pretty shit to be honest. I was kind of sick over the weekend and hadn't fully recovered by Sunday night. As usual the girls on my floor were typical disrespectful bitches and they stayed awake and giggled profusely all night. Because of that, Monday sucked. Still I tried to be as productive as possible and got a few things done.


Last night they were loud again. They sat in the room next door being obnoxious and somehow their conversation strayed over to the noise complaints of recent times. Technically, I AM the one who filed an anonymous complaint, but they don't know that and this is why I was so distraught. 


They've come to the natural assumption that I must be the horrible killjoy who wants them to be quiet at night and act like responsible adults. So it was about five minutes worth of snark about me and name-calling in my general direction. (Do you honestly think a loud exclamation of "What a bitch?!&qu…

I don't write poetry often....

...but when I do, this is the garbage that spews forth:






In an ideal world Everyone would be kind. There'd be no hatred and crime And everything would be fine. But when I look around I see sadness and lies, so much hatred and fire... I just sit and I cry.

Black March

Post V-Day

Last night my darling boyfriend came to visit me here at school. I was a little surprised that he'd want to visit in the middle of the week, especially after a long day of work and school, but I had forgotten that he was quite interesting in attending the Pagan Alliance meetings with me. 


So after class yesterday I took the bus over to the mall in hopes of scoring some discount chocolates, since I didn't get him anything for V-day itself and we didn't celebrate the weekend before either. Target's stock was dwindling and I found mostly Easter related sweets, but I did manage to score a few heart boxes of chocolates for the family. 


For Chris, I ventured over to the Northwood's Candy Emporium, a cute little candy shop here in the mall. I go in there sometimes to eye their wide assortment of gummies, as well as to ooh and aah over their truffles. Yesterday I actually bought some. 





For just under $10 I managed to score two giant White Russian truffles, two smaller white c…

Happy V-Day. I date nerds.

In honor of my darling boyfriend, who is most definitely a nerd. And I love him. <3

Ugh, I want to die!

So I woke up this morning feeling so sick I could barely move. Like the worst cold and flu symptoms ever. And I had an awful migraine to accompany it. I don't feel so achy anymore and I've beaten the migraine into minor submission with a LOT of Excedrin. Still....today just sucked.


I didn't make it to any of my classes, so I was in bed with my laptop most of the day alternating between Facebook, working on a fanfiction, and finishing up an essay due on Wednesday. I mostly just wanted to bury my head in the pillow and die, but at least I made an attempt at being productive.


I really hope I feel better tomorrow.


And I guess the real reason I'm bothering to make a blog entry at 9 pm is because I have to get some more "woe is me" misery off my chest. 


*Just deleted a bunch of whiny emo garbage because no one here wants to read it*


So I guess....it'll just keep weighing me down. 


Oh yeah....Happy Valentine's Day.

Remember the Quadratic Formula, kids!

I had a math test at 9:30 am today. That was obnoxious, considering I slept like shit. I even forgot to set my alarm, so it's a miracle I woke up on time.  After that I had to sit through a Philosophy of Religion class that was practically empty - I guess everyone else wanted to sleep in too.

After that it was off to Bio Life, where Sue stuck a needle through my vein, from the inside. This is the second time that's happened, but of course the first time was a mistake and a faulty vein. This vein was fine, she just jabbed the needle in too viciously and too deep. Bitch. I don't like when she sticks me anyways, it always hurts. Tessa is good. I would prefer to get her every time, but oh well....v_v

Damn...this week has overall really sucked and been full of emotional turmoil. Thank the gods that tomorrow is Friday and I can fucking go home in the evening. But! I did try to cheer myself up by wearing something new. I occasionally scope out the kid's section at Target beca…

Blood Money: a brewing shitstorm

Tonight, there's an event going on here on campus that is showing the pro-life bent abortion documentary Blood Money. Have you heard of it? Yeah, I hadn't either, so I looked into it:


This politically right-wing "documentary" about abortions and the secretive dirty acts by the Planned Parenthood organization is a film put together by those who very strongly oppose abortion and won't listen to any other views about it. 


After watching the trailer and reading the site: here, this whole thing reminds me of the debates I used to have with people who would NOT listen to the other side and hear each other out. So I opted not to attend this event on campus that will take place shortly. 


I'm a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood. I always have been and after they saved my life a few years ago I know I always will be. If it weren't for them giving me the advice and options I needed, I wouldn't be here right now. 

*And this is the point where I will end up losi…

New Doomcookies!

I see I've got a couple of new followers. Greetings and welcome to my blog. It's not very interesting here, but I hope you'll stick around regardless.

I've got my next Depression Support Group meeting tonight at 6 pm. I'm really torn about whether I want to go or not because I've had a pretty rough day and I'm still having trouble keeping it together. Every time I start thinking about what it was that initially set me off today, I start bawling. So....sheer willpower is keeping my face dry currently. Sheer fucking willpower.

But my friend Catie might be coming, so I guess it's worth it to put in an appearance. I just feel so out of place with that group. With everything really. And I'm constantly under the impression that no one wants me around. Honestly....

Even here. Half the time I feel like you guys would prefer that this blog disappeared off the face of the planet. It's just a lot of whiny bitching and moaning isn't it? I feel like I…

Goff: itz srs bznz!

If any of you darling readers follow the very sweet and adorable Amy from The Ultimate Goth Guide, you'll know that very recently she acquired her very own personal Elitist Goth Stalker/Douchebag! This person started off posting anonymous comments on her posts basically telling her she didn't know what she was talking about, and wasn't a "real Goth" for this reason or that. 


Be that as it may, Amy is entitled to be whoever/however she wants. This person though, can't seem to get that through their head, and seems to consistently imply that if you aren't completely spooky, old-school, and shitting bats nonstop that you can't possibly be a real Goth. 


To make matters worse, this pitiful little individual then went on to make a blog that responded to and insulted every post that Amy made. You can see the polar opposite of Amy's blog here: Pile of Shit.


Now, you can't exactly nail a person and get their blog deleted for libel/slander (which I find st…

One Item: Ten Coordinates

You know, as I recall....I was going to take photos of my recent Target haul and show you the cute things I bought last weekend right? Well, I will get around to it, but in a different way. I want to try doing a couple of interesting fashion-based posts. And I want to make them interesting, so I'm going to do one of those One Time Ten Ways sort of themes. 


The item chosen for my first of such entries is this little number I picked up at Target:





A slim fitting sleeveless dress that ends just above the knee. It's gray with pieces of black fabric sewn on to make stripes that tend to go in quite random directions, as you can see.


Stay tuned, in a few days I'll put up the post with me wearing this dress ten different ways! ^_^

Monthly Theme Post: Rings!

Participating in Sophistique Noir's monthly theme post event, here's my entry for RINGS!




On this hand: The first ring kind of looks like leaves and crystals tossed in together. A very "fantasy" feel to it. The second ring is a cameo style ring, the third on is an adorable octopus, and the last one is just colorful rhinestones, but it's quite comfy!


On hand the second: We've got my butterfly thumb ring, my owl ring, an opal ring, a vintage silver ring from my grandmother, and a crown ring.


And lastly, my giant rose ring with gold trim!
