Going to College

This is an apology. I don't have a real post. I'm packing and ironing and searching and losing and crying today before I leave for college. Despite having jam packed first days next week, I'll still try to post.

I kind of want to talk about this though. It didn't really hit me until yesterday that I'm leaving. I'm leaving so many people behind to meet many more. I'm going to leave and discover and learn and forget. I'm going to have a lot of fun experiences, and many stressful ones. I don't know what to expect. I'm going to pursue something I can truly say I love. I don't think I'm scared of the change. I think I'm scared things will seem the same, that nothing will change. At least socially and academically. Have you guys ever gone through something like this?

Speaking as a Model Part 2

The swelling has finished going down for the most part, but I wanted to wait a full week. I've gotten caught up in resting and packing to leave on Saturday that I've forgotten about the blog. Sorry! I'll try to get on it. I got the photos from my shoot outside, so I thought I'd share them with y'all.

First Day

So my face is still pretty swollen from getting my wisdom teeth out. I don't really feel like showing you guys that. Hopefully it will have gone down in a couple days. For now, I have some first day of school inspiration based on things I have in my closet. It's fairly simple, but leather and lace always packs a punch in my opinion. (I move in on Saturday, so it might be crazy getting posts out next week.) What I want to know is where have you guys been drawing inspiration from? Whether it's for work or school, let me know below!

Permission to Suck

I was reading through some posts on IFB and I was thinking, "My blog sucks. My blog doesn't have any of these things she says to have." But then I thought of this video I saw from the Vlogbrothers. (If you don't know who they are, and you're a nerd, they're AWESOME!) One of the brothers was on paternal leave when this video was made, to explain the girl.

Money is Power

So I'm getting my wisdom teeth out today. Which probably means I'm sleeping right now. I'm writing this in advance while it's fresh in my mind.

Speaking as a Model...

After a couple years of people telling me I should be a model, I finally said, "Okay." I'm currently working on a portfolio with a photographer friend. We're finishing it up tomorrow at a farm, but these are a couple of some studio shots we took at the beginning of July. (The shopping I mentioned in the last post was for the next shoot.) Weather's been crazy in Georgia to work out an outdoor shoot.

It's been so long...

So I took the summer off as you can see. I started to taper off my posts towards the end, and something just wasn't appealing about blogging. I had lost my drive for it. But I realized about a week or two ago, that I missed it. I'd been avoiding looking at blogs all summer. I subscribe to several blogs and fashion sites by e-mail, and OH MY GOODNESS! I had over 700 emails before I finally said, "This is enough!" It took me about four days to go through my emails and Bloglovin' account. (You can follow me there, btw.)
You can see below part of my excuse for not posting. I've looked some variation of this all summer.
