Make It Work

So it's officially been three months since I graduated from college. I mean, I am SO thankful that I don't have to endure the hours and hours of studio homework, and I never thought I would say this but here it is....I kind of miss it! I miss having something to do ALL the time. Now days, I have a pretty boring routine. Wake up, work, go home, do nothing, go to bed, and wake up and do it all over again. Although this boredom is definitely taking some getting used to, it has given me a lot of time to think about what I am actually going to do with my life. As of the moment, I have decided to up and move to NYC next fall (with a job lined up, hopefully) in order to pursue my dreams of becoming Tim Gunn's best friend and prancing around the city wearing absolutely the best clothes and discussing fashion while we have brunch amidst the hustle and bustle of city life.

Ever since I became a Project Runway fan I have been obsessed with Tim Gunn. Every time he utters the words "make it work", I LOVE IT. He just seems like an interesting kind of guy that you would want to hang out with, not to mention that he could totally help me overhaul my near disastrous wardrobe these days that is filled with stained t-shirts and about 13 different pairs of black yoga pants. These days I opt for comfort over looking great and sometimes even forget to brush my hair in the morning....weird I know. I aspire to be a fashionista, but I also LOVE being comfortable in my clothes. All this to say, whether I'm wearing comfortable or couture, I guess I'LL just have to make it work.

Just Blame the Economy

So, it's the aftermath of my senior project. It's 5:11 a.m. and I'm awake up at the studio waiting until the moment that Office Max opens so I can freaking print my project and be DONE. Not only have I finished a project hours before the minute it's due (which is a miracle of God), but I have also mastered the ways of Google Sketchup/Podium which saved me from failing studio and therefore not graduating. Speaking of, graduation will soon be upon me and I still have NO idea what I am going to do with my life. I feel like I have so many options, but none at the same time. Thanks for nothing economy! I blame you for everything. Oh, I totally failed that's because of the economy. That person is a horrible driver...again, the economy. I'm broke...obviously the economy (not the fact that I have no financial skills what-so-ever). Me and Gavin DeGraw not being married yet...the freaking ECONOMY! Geez, can't a girl catch a break?!

Anyway, I'm a little delirious and I need sleep. Tomorrow at 4...well, today rather, I shall be FREE!!

Peace and Love

Ginger love from West Palm

I am spending my spring break across the country in Florida...a state which, up until this week, I have never been to. I feel like I am in a totally different world. The weather here is amazing, the ocean is beautiful, the people are great, and I don't think I ever want to leave. I am staying with my friend Anna Grace in her apartment with her 4 roommates, who have all so graciously let me invade their tiny space and set up camp for the week. I have been reluctantly trying to work on some of my homework during my free time...key word being reluctantly. I usually focus for about 5 minutes and then wander out to sit on the porch and stare at the water and the palm trees. Being from Arkansas, I'm sure I look like a total tourist...I like freak out when I see the ocean or palm trees or seashells and I bust out my camera like every 5's pretty hilarious but I'm trying to not be so weird about it, at least when people are watching me.  

When I got here on Friday evening, Anna Grace and several PBA friends drove up to a beach condo in Ponce Inlet to spend the weekend. It was amazing to say the least and I have some HILARIOUS memories and also a nasty sunburn as souveniers. I think I forgot that the sun hates me...

I don't want this week to end, not only because I love West Palm and all the people I have met here, but also because I DO NOT want to go back to school. I am only 2 months shy of graduation now and the senioritis is worse than ever! I am still undecided on what I am going to do post-graduation but I'm not really worried about it right now. I am just focused on getting through the rest of the semester...oh and I forgot to mention that..........(drumroll please)........I got a new car!!
Thank Heavens...the Buick was a faithful friend to me for the past few years but it was time for it to go. It was replaced by an '08 Nissan Sentra. I love my new car and when I drive it, I don't feel like it's really mine because it's so amazing.  But the best thing of has AIR CONDITIONING! 

I now am going to carefully apply some aloe to my red shoulders, drift off to sleep and have sweet dreams in this paradise.

I'm gonna go Sherlock Holmes on your....

So this weekend was say the least. I got my purse stolen, along with my makeup bag...straight out of my unlocked car. I know, I know. My fault for leaving it unlocked, right? I guess I just trust people too much these days. Anyway, it has been a big stress trying to put the pieces of my life back together....a new driver's license, Social Security card, student I.D. (and not to mention my iPod that was magically back from the dead). Basically this weekend has really sucked, filing police reports, calling everyone and their dog to replace all my stuff. Moral of the story--LOCK YOUR CAR. But life goes on, that's something that I know I can count on.  Warhol Purse, iPod, and Hobo will be missed.
