The Dress that Crawled out of the 80's and into My Closet

When I was still in high school (something like six or seven years ago) I made the decision to hit up one of the school dances. My friend Emily and I had nothing better to do on a Saturday night and I really wanted an excuse to going shopping and find something wacky and pretty.

Now, if memory serves I found this dress at a Ragstock in the St. Cloud mall.

I hardly ever wear it, as it's a bit flashy for me, but it's still one of my favorite items in my closet. Maybe I'll find a way to coordinate it this summer.

Anyways, I wore it to this dance and everyone loved it. ^_^


I am having a really good fucking day! 

Changes in the Wind....

So the sky was a few shades of awesome last week. The clouds had this cool wavy texture to them just after it got done raining one morning. So, what does any good blogger do? She whips out her camera and captures the moment, of course.

After this week, there will be only one more week of normal classes left of the semester. Then it will be finals week. I still have so much to do and it's driving me crazy because I can't seem to just sit down and make myself do it. I'd rather be here....or on Facebook....or maybe Youtube. Or even sitting outside with a good book seeing as the sun's finally come out again.

Everyone in English class loved my Gothic Lolita paper. I hope I got some helpful comments during the revision time but I haven't looked yet. It was quite fun to write and I hope I actually get a good grade on it. I'm gonna have my professor look it over on Monday perhaps to see what he has to say about it. Could be interesting....

Last weekend I cleaned up my…

Happy Friday the 13th

This is probably one of my favorite days of the year, honestly. It always tends to be a good luck kind of day for me. And right now, things are looking pretty good.

I bought a camera on yesterday. I'm having it sent to the store in my hometown so I can pick it up next weekend or something. Totally excited because it takes HD video and I can officially start vlogging again! Woot!

I slept in today which means I feel great. Seriously though, how often can I roll out of bed at 10 am and be totally kosher with that? I don't have class until 1 pm and I'm honestly thinking of skipping in favor of working on two papers and biology homework. So we'll see.

My bunion surgery is also scheduled. I'll be operated on Wednesday, May 9 at noon. I'm kind of excited. It's my first surgery and it'll be a neat experience. That and I'm totally looking forward to my foot not hurting like hell no matter what kind of shoes I wear.

I hope the rest of you are havi…

Good afternoon lovelies~

So it's like five o'clock and I really should eat something, but I'm quite happily seated in front of my laptop watching Youtube videos. Per the usual, really. I have some Easter goodies hanging out in my room so maybe I'll much on those. I made couscous earlier, so it's not like I'm totally starving today or anything....

Well, my weekend was interesting. On Friday I had another appt. with my doctor to get my antidepressant prescription renewed so I'm safely back on that for another month. It's been causing some pretty awkward night sweats since I started taking it, but we're gonna keep on it for another month and see if some of these weird side effects disappear or not. I mean, I can live with it. I like the meds otherwise...

On Saturday it rained and was completely crap. It was a bad day for me and I didn't feel like doing much. I was supposed to go to JoAnn Fabrics to find some lace and elastic thread and I just didn't feel up to it. I spen…

The Reaper and the Flowers

For this month's theme post, I'm going to share with you all a poem that is a favorite of mine. I first heard it in song form (which took my breath away) and from them on I've adored it. It was written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, an American poet in the 1800's. 

There is a Reaper whose name is Death,
And, with his sickle keen,  He reaps the bearded grain at a breath,  And the flowers that grow between. 

``Shall I have nought that is fair?'' saith he;  ``Have nought but the bearded grain?  Though the breath of these flowers is sweet to me,  I will give them all back again.'' 

He gazed at the flowers with tearful eyes,  He kissed their drooping leaves;  It was for the Lord of Paradise  He bound them in his sheaves. 

``My Lord has need of these flowerets gay,''  The Reaper said, and smiled;  ``Dear tokens of the earth are they,  Where he was once a child. 

``They shall all bloom in fields of light,  Transplanted by my care,  And saints, upon their garments white,  …
