I don't have too much to say right now, which I'm sure will come as a shock to you guys who are used to huge, type-y blocks of text adorned with a few photos to soften the word-blow. Honestly, part of me was hoping to be away from the computer for the most part this week, since it's my last full week of summer before school starts up. I got this idea in my head - and take note, because this is a dumb idea - that spending my last days of summer on the computer, scrolling through tumblr, slowly becoming obsessed with Parks & Recreation while other folks my age keep hyper-busy and super-duper social would make me some sort of inadequate. See, I told you that was dumb, so I hoped you paid attention when I said "look, this is going to be dumb." Not to get all quotey on you or anything (but come on, who am I kidding) whenever I get like this, this feeling of "If you're not busy every second you are 100% wasting your life," I remember that quote, I think it's by Teddy Roosevelt (let's hear it for T. Roze, am I right?), that says "Comparison is the thief of joy." What it boils down to, is that everyone is allowed to make their own pathways toward feeling good. If I want to spend a day watching an entire series, if that will make me feel good, then HECK YEAH I should do that. If I want to climb a mountain, HECK YEAH, MOUNTAINS. If I want to keep super busy and work and work and then be super social afterwards every night then, honestly probably not but, HECK YEAH. So, I just hope this week I'll focus more on what'll make me happiest, not what other people are doing, and stop comparing myself. That's the thief of joy, you know.
Also, just wanted to make a clothes-related remark here. Shocking, I know. It's not like this is a daily style blog or anything. But, my dear, dear friend Elanor sent me what is probably the best tote bag ever, and I can't stop wearing it, and I mostly took these outfit photos so I could show you guys how good it is, and sort of brag I guess.
