If, in some sort of absurd life or death situation in which someone held a gun up to my head and forced me to choose my favorite Billy Joel song, I would probably say Vienna. It's one of those songs that always kind of makes me chill out and get a handle on myself and what's going on in my life. I've been listening to the song a lot lately (and singing along to it dramatically while driving to work) just because I'm feeling this weird combination of overwhelmed and underwhelmed. I'm overwhelmed in the sense of school, and subsequently the decisions I have to make, as well as a few changes that have recently entered my life (nothing crazy, I'm just supercrazy sensitive and easily affected by little changes), and I'm kind of underwhelmed in the fact that I don't feel like I'm doing and accomplishing enough. It's an awkward combination that sort of negates itself and doesn't make sense, and while it's sort of left me in this static cloud of befuddlement, it's also got me hopeful and excited about pushing forward and finding my own way about things. And a good song to remind me that I'm capable, but can only do so much right now, is always helpful.
I don't know that I can figure out an effective segue from Billy Joel to this outfit. I felt like Billy Joel in this outfit? Not really. I felt like I should wear this outfit in Vienna? Probably not. So let's just say that I like this outfit, and I like Billy Joel, and that should be good enough.
