Autumn's Orange Glow

______This week has been busier than a herd of bloodthirsty mosquitos at a nude beach, you guys.  Usually after Wednesdays, my workload lightens up, but everything was still going in extreme hyperspace mode until late noon on Friday.  I accomplished so much, though, and I've gotta say, it feels pretty rad.  I scrawled out a lengthy rough draft, sat for five hours in the painting room to start and finish my assignment of copying a Salvador Dali painting in oils, studied like a mad man, and still managed to fit a Starbucks tea break with my super lovely roommate in there.

______Though hectic days can be kind of awful, I think that I thrive in them like weeds do in the heat.  That is me.  I am a weed, a graceful weed, a dandelion.

______Guess I'd better prepare myself to be one of these graceful weeds next week, too, 'cause I know it's gonna be another hectic one.  I hope that you guys' first day of autumn is nice and cool!

LOVIN the shirt! The highlow and the sheer back is totally awesome. Also, loved the nude beach metaphor. I laughed out loud :P And you are totally one of the goodlooking weeds. Not all weeds are gross and nasty...some weeds are PERDY LIKE YOU <3

"busier than a bloodthirsty herd of mosquitoes at a nude beach" xD HA! Oh Ali, you are the best. That is the perfect descriptive phrase for life right now.

That shirt is SO COOL. I love the back sheer panel!

What are you studying in school? I know I've probably read it in a post before but I don't remember exactly. Something art related? If so, YAY! Art majors rock :)

Ahhhh I love this look. And you really have a way with words, in the comical sense, I mean. I cracked up at your comparison of yourself to a weed...and your analogy of the mosquitoes!

Stay awesome and stylish!

I want a top JUST like this. I have been having the most difficulty finding cute tops lately. If I had this one, I would wear it so much that people would beg me to stop.

I feel like busy days make you feel like a much more accomplished person, especially when you're looking stylish as you run around life with a frantic face. Keep on keeping on!
