Dress for the Rain

So today it's raining quite a lot. To the point where our power's gone out. I hope I finish this before my laptop starts dying. Today is not a day where I want to worry about the elements because of my exhaustion, but there are a few simple ways to make it better.
1. Simple is always better on these days. A graphic sweater and colored jeans are your best friend today. Even regular jeans or leggings. No one wants to deal with a flippy skirt when it's raining. Or wet bare legs.
2. Water proof without looking like it. Everyone loves those cute, printed rain boots. Personally, I don't love to be one of a sea of them on rainy days. But that's just me. A good pair of flat boots will do the trick. I personally don't like the look of a plastic rain jacket (but I did include one below), so I've found a water proof jacket that's made of cotton, nylon, and a little spandex.
3. Brighten up the day in simple ways. Whether it's a pop from your lipstick or a blue skies umbrella, find something about your outfit that will make you smile when you look in the mirror. Especially since it's already gloomy outside. And make that special tea you've been saving :)

So whether it's your favorite kind of weather or your least, embrace the rain in your outfit.

A Chorus Line opens next week and it's midterms. That's kind of consuming my life. If you live in Georgia, you should go to the Lagrange College website and reserve your tickets. I'm a cut dancer, but it's an amazing show you should see anyways!

It's been a While...

I know. I know. It's been about 3 weeks since I posted. I promised myself I wouldn't do this, but I have. I assure you it's not on purpose. I have literally been so busy that my room still isn't completely unpacked and put away. I haven't done laundry in two weeks (I'm still wearing clean things. Don't worry). I'm edging into performance season and trying to cope with a full course load and rehearsals. I'm managing to stay at least a little sane, but my blog has fallen to the wayside. I had so many plans for this year, but I'm finding it hard to find time to take quality pictures that aren't on my phone. Forgive me if from now until next semester I'm doing quick phone posts unless I'm on break (which I start my first one tomorrow thank god). I'm gonna try and catch up with all of y'alls blogs over the next few weeks.
For those of you who say, "What about weekends?" I haven't had a free weekend since I started school. I've had auditions and work calls and had to go home and sew shirts. Do not get me started on the evils of stretch velvet. And Sundays I catch up on homework and have afternoon rehearsal. My first free weekend will be the weekend after NATS (a vocal competition) which is November 15th. Seriously.
I'm not saying all this to complain. I love being busy. It keeps me from getting lazy. And it makes me appreciate the time that I do have off. I'm just saying I haven't had a whole lot of time to be here and to appreciate all of your lovely blogs that I read. Or read *past tense*. Or will read. Promise to read. I promise I still have yet to have a lazy day with yoga pants and a t-shirt. And it is my goal to never have one of those.

And since I know you're dying to have an outfit, here ya go. The first of a series of crappy phone pictures. I felt like a modern Snow White since I had a red headband.

Thoughts on Gap Ads

So I know I've been absent for about a week. We had issues with the wifi in the dorms for a few days. Once that was fixed, I got sick! My sister gave me a small cold she had right before I moved in. Ugh. And once I was better, classes started. So as you can imagine, I've felt like I've been kind of stuck about what to do here. For those of you wondering, I did get cast in A Chorus Line. Unfortunately, my character is cut in the first number. Oh well. I think I'm more excited for A Midsummer Night's Dream in February. I'll let you know how that goes!

Moving in Issues

Due to WiFi issues in the dorms, I'm not able to really use my laptop. I promise next week will be full of exciting things and adventures. I have my audition tonight for A Chorus Line, so wish me luck!

Thoughts Before the School Year

I just wanted to share with you guys how I've been feeling about this school year. Since I move in tomorrow and I'm packing the car tonight, it's crazy close and I'm freaking out just a little bit. I have a lot of mixed feelings. Hopefully you guys can relate. Sound off in the comments about anything you worry about or anticipate!

1. I am an insane human being. I am taking 17 hours worth of classes, 18 if I pass my CLEP test because then I have to take the lab. On top of that, I will be preparing for my first vocal competition. If I'm not in A Chorus Line, for 2 weeks before the show, I will be helping to tech A Chorus Line. I have no idea what I'm going to do if I tech. Maybe lighting? Which I have absolutely no experience in. And I'll be doing work study for the first time. And that's going to be crazy adding that into my schedule. I really am crazy.
