Today is my favorite kind of day. The cozy kind where it's chilly and rainy out so you can cuddle up inside with a sweater and a good book (or in my case, August Wilhelm von Schlegel's thoughts on Germany in the Romantic era?). I had an early class this morning, so I couldn't stay in bed and laze about, but I was able to get home early as well, just as the rain was picking up. Speaking of my good friend Schlegel, this would be my first week of classes! I don't know why I added that exclamation point, as I'm not yet too excited about any of my classes. This semester I'm trying new subjects and trying to push myself, which also means trying to convince myself I'm just as capable as anyone else in my classes. I'll be taking a history course on Romantic Europe, a literature class called Allegories of love, and a poetry workshop that doesn't run like any workshop I've ever taken before (I haven't had it yet though. Thursday!). Last year was a very comfortable year study wise, except for my poetry. So, while I'm a big fan of comfort and stability, I'm kind of forcing myself to try some new things this year.
By the way, I just wanted to mention that I was featured on the We Love Colors style blog today! It's really exciting, and I'm so flattered. In a fun coincidence, I wore my new We Love Colors tights today, since it was cold enough to wear tights and not die of heat stroke. Hooray!
