______Whenever I'm in college, it seems like my days are so slow and torturous, and yet at the same time, they fly by so quickly that the next day is already there just as soon as the first one began. Even more so, at the end of the week when I'm finally able to drive home for a day or so of weekend time with the parents, it seems like it's already time to drive back. Honestly, I don't know how to describe it. It's just a constant cycle of day one to day two and back to day one again. Start and stop. Rinse and repeat. Peanut butter and jelly. Wait a minute, that last one didn't quite match up...

______But heeey, I guess a little bit of mental torture isn't all so bad for us. I guess in a sense, it propels us forward, kind of like how procrastination keeps your mind focused on the task at hand. Nerve-wracking, but effective in terms of accomplishing things.

______That being said, you all stay focused this week, my sweet, sweet citizens. And treat yourself to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich if you'd like, because as we know, they are truly delicious creations.

Hey dear,
I guess bright colours suit you very well! I like the way you combine blue and yellow. I really need more colourful shoes to do the same!

Yup, being stuck in one place sometimes really suck. I hate having a routine, it makes me feel like I'm wasting my days. So it's good from time to time to screw everything and do something unroutine :D If there's such a word at all :D Love the cute yellow shoes :)

I sort of feel that way all year round. even when the days seem to drag, its always astonishing when the next one arrives so seemingly quickly. the weekends buzz by in a blur while the monotony of the work week melds itself into a single entity.

I guess it really is important to listen to Ferris Bueller once in a while.

and i love your aqua skirt. i must get something like it.

I know exactly what you mean about time crawling but flying simultaneously. It's a bizarre phenomenon that I came to identify with graduate school while earning my MA.

You look adorable.

Boheme.Fille said...

I have the same feeling, like the days fly..esp when is weekend!
The color mix is wonderful and I love your skirt!

Well... said...

Hahaha, oh Ali, I just love your outfit posts. Not only are they creative and inspiring fashion-wise, they always give me a giggle :)
I can totally relate to that procrastination focusing technique! How do you think I held onto my A's in high school? Procrastinate then work my butt off like crazy the night before! xD
Anyway, loving this adorable outfit, its bright and has just enough quirky details to match your awesome personality. That top is perfect!

I love this look! the polka dot top is adorable and paired with that skirt really makes the look complete. The color combo is just perfect.

Ahh, I was just on Jen's site, and I am so happy to see another polka dots outfit! I really like how yours is marine themed - I adore that color scheme. :) Of course it would be from ModCloth - what a lovely store.

And now you have me craving pb&j's...:P

Yup, I totally agree how days and weeks seem like an endless cycle. I can't believe it's already almost Friday! But then the weekend passes super quickly and then it's back to Monday. grr.
