Hey, it's my birthday, today! What?! I know, you guys! So amazing. :D <3
Today, I am contemporaneously reminded of my mortality and of my incredible oldness. I have been on this Earth for decades. I played with a clunky Polaroid camera as a kid (the birthday themed film was my fav, you guys); I saw the beginnings of the internet (AOL IRC ICQ LOL WTF BBQ); I actually know what "dial-up" is; I know what a "modem" looks like; I know what a "floppy disk" looks like (I had some good games on those); I made mix tapes as a young teen which included greats such as Depeche Mode, Jamiroquai, Janet Jackson & The Pointer Sisters (I had eclectic tastes, shut up! Heh).
I enjoyed roller skates; I went to warehouse raves before they were trendy; I hated my parents; I hated being tall; I hated my feet; I hated my Christian private school; I hated a lot of things actually. Atheism predated the beginning of my menstrual cycles; angst drove me to fill countless notebooks with poetry.
I devoured books like "The Boxcar Children," "Goosebumps" (so cool, you guys and borderline too creepy for kids..); "The Lord of the Rings," "Dragonlance," and various choose your own adventure books; I fell in love with English, Etymology and track and field; I went to college, where I became enamored with Philosophy; while there, I traveled alone to a foreign land; I learned a second language; I became inundated with wanderlust; I saw my future; I went to graduate school and here I am.
I want to say I've got my act together, but I'm only just pretending. :D Haha. I kid..well..sort of. Anyway, enough of that business. I'm just glad to be alive. I have lived to see another day! Hurray! ;P
Let's talk about what I'm wearing, shall we? As you can see, I've got some serious casual layering happening. My last few casual posts have been super boring (as they should be, mind you), but I decided to throw some aesthetic punches, this time. I've got a rad perforated mustard bag, quirky polka dot sneakers with teal laces, my favorite backpack and a pretty hilarious hoodie for good measure.
Underneath it all, lies a wonderfully colorful treat. I'm rather fond of creating more than one look at the same time, as I am sure you know by now. :P This totally amazing retro sweater helped me create a little "kodak moment" of sorts. The sweater, along with the high-waisted jeans, makes me look like some kid from the 70's on her way to class. Nerdy, sexy, cool. That's what I say. Hehe.
I'm also wearing some lovely accessories, which I am sure you all have seen in previous posts, so there's no need to bore you with details. Though, I must say, I love this balloon necklace so much. :D
So, I'm curious..how old do you think I am? There are only wrong answers, so don't worry. Haha. ;D If you paid attention to my rant (and some previous posts), you should have a good range to work with. I'd love to read your guesses, though I won't confirm any of them. ;P Haha. Have a great day, guys! <3
