This is my new favorite movie, 1993, Johnny Depp flick. Nuff said :)
I kno that I've posted about 500 Days of Summer before, but I just found out that it was edited using Final Cut Pro, which is the same software we use in school! I thought was pretty neat haha. I've been having so much fun experiencing everything hands on with my major this semester. I'm working my butt off lol. If I want to get my masters at UCLA I've got to graduate with amazing grades here first, so I'm definitely trying my best!!

Ok so I am absolutely in love with the hip jewelry designer Pamela Love. Her morbid pieces are impossible to resist. I think she's absolutely gorgeous, and her pieces mimic her beauty. Pictured above are just a few pieces that I'm absolutely in love with. Unfortunately I can't afford them, so I searched for some alternatives and found exactly what I was looking for at urban outfitters! For some reason the picture of what I ordered won't upload, so just visit urbanoutfitters.com and then click on women's accessories! You'll find some awesome bird skull pieces.

So I'm turning over a new leaf. It's right smack dab in the middle of the semester and I'm extremely drained, mentally and emotionally. However, when I woke up this morning I felt determined to start my day with a strong sense of determination. I'm not going to let all of my projects and papers overwhelm me. I'm going to tackle each one with confidence! Plus I'm inspired by the countdown until Thanksgiving break! Only 16 more days til I catch that plane to Kansas City, Missouri and experience good ole sweet potato pie, with the entire fam :)

101 Dalmatians was one of my favorite disney movies growing up, I loved the evil villain Cruella, she scared the crap outta me lol. Also, I absolutely adored the way the film was animated. It was drawn in the hip, jazzy beatnik style of the sixties. I'd love to live in a house like the one Roger and Anita had haha. I watched it again last night and fell in love with it all over again, so I thought I'd share a few of my favorite screenshots from the film :)
It has been a CRAZY, stressful week. But somehow it went by extremely fast, thank God lol. I still have so much to do this weekend, however. I'm so overwhelmed with life right now, personal decisions, sophomore year of school decisions and crazy family decisions. This week I was just praying for the spirit of contentment, because I have a real issue with waiting on God's timing, even though my name is Patience lol. I'm always worried bout my future, career wise, and who I'm going to marry. I've got to learn to drop it though, and focus on God's timing.

For my Valuing Through Literature class, I'm reading Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, which I've already read a few times, so it definitely doesn't seem like homework, but a good read instead.
I adore this class love story, it's so real. Realer than people realize actually...
So after reading one of my fellow bloggers (called That Good Good Blog) post about doing a little Goodwill thrifting, I had to take a trip over to Goodwill myself, and do a little huntin :) I found two great items for less then 6 dollars.
I got a great little black, crossbody bag, and an awesome 80's sweater to go with it. Its kinda of an earthy toned, girly version of a classic Bill Cosby sweater, with a nice low V-neck that zips up. Its so oversized and cozy! After I tried it on, it made me want to go back home all the way to Kansas City to sit in front of the fireplace, to soak up its timeless warmth and nostalgia. Gosh I miss our fireplace lol. I can't wait to go back home for Thanksgiving!!! Until then, I shall wrap up in the cozziness of my "Cosby" sweater, and work my butt off in school lol.
Denise was my favorite kid on the Cosby show. She had THEE coolest, eclectic style that I'd always longed to have. It wasn't just the clothes that made Denise cool though, it was her swag, the way she actually wore the clothes. As crazy as they were, they never overpowered her as an individual, and she became my style icon. It's so funny how her daughter Zoe has the same little way of putting different items of clothing together to make something brand new.
I absolutely love the Bonet/Kravitz fam :)
Its been a wonderful sophomore year so far! Its actually really hard to believe that I'm already in my second year of college... weird actually, haha. I'm probably the most excited about my decision to minor in French, I fell in love with the language my freshman year, and never stopped thinking about it; as a result, I decided to try my best to become fluent in the beautiful language. I really want to be able to go to a country that speaks French, and be able to comprehend and communicate with that culture...it would be wonderful, and a dream come true.
Anyways, I'm having a great labor day... having my on little mini Johnny Depp marathon (Cry Baby, 21 Jump Street). Goodness, I'd marry him in a heartbeat haha. I'm also doin a bit of hw here and there, I completed most of yesterday...o and I'm doin a smidge of laundry as well... which sucks because I live on the 3rd floor of the dormitory... and laundry is all the way in the basement.. o well.. its good exercise :)
Happy Labor Day my fellow bloggers!
