Forty-first day of work selfie

I got this patterned top and this black sweater at Ross Dress For Less in the States.   I remember there were other colours of the sweater that I contemplated before deciding on the black one.  The white one was nice, but I knew I’d get it dirty.  I already had other black sweaters, but this one was special because of the little diamonds along the zipper.  I like how they match the ones on my necklace.  I love adding a little bit of sparkle to a darker outfit.  I think my hair may have still been wet in this picture.  Who has time to dry their hair in the morning?  I’d rather spend that time putting together an outfit.

Fortieth day of work selfie

This outfit is kind of dull, but not every day has to be super fancy.  You may have also noticed my lack of makeup for several weeks.  That’s a combination of lack of time and lack of caring and also the fact that I don’t really find it necessary everyday.  Once in a while, I may feel like it, but the majority of the time I’m perfectly fine without it.  The best thing about this is at the end of the day, not having to remove it.  You wouldn’t believe how much relief it is to not have to spend time trying to properly remove your makeup before you go to bed.

This top is from an Orb warehouse sale.  The random ruffles across it elevate it out of it’s otherwise plain status.  The grey sweater is from Jacob.  It originally came with a belt, but who knows what happened to that?  I’ll probably keep wearing these black Marshalls pants until I shave my legs and go back to wearing dresses.  But who knows when that will finally happen?  Your guess is as good as mine.  I will keep wearing my UBC Sub jewellery until it breaks.

Along with lack of makeup, you may have also noticed my lack of doing anything with my hair.  What am I supposed to do with it?  My hair just doesn’t naturally shape well and is always super frizzy.  I usually don’t have time or just don’t remember to attempt to add product to smooth it out.  My method of doing my hair involves tying it back in a messy ponytail and hoping for the best.  Then later, removing the hair tie and seeing how it looks down.  And if it’s not acceptable, putting it back in a ponytail.  The frizziness of my hair seems to be immune to hair products.  Oh well. 

I may as well have given up blogging for Lent

Because I’m barely doing it anymore. And it’s upsetting me that I haven’t been able to. I’m thinking I’ll have more time for it in April. Maybe. I’m way behind and will never catch up. But it’s okay. In time, I will once again become accustomed to blogging. Wish me luck.

That awkward moment when you want to write a blog post but can’t figure out what to write about

And so you end up writing about the fact that you don’t know what to write about. Even though you have countless other ideas, some of which may even be interesting. But you decide you really don’t have the time to bother with them enough at the moment to put them together coherently into a blog post. So you waste perfectly good blog space on posts like this one because you said you would write something. Meanwhile, people are wondering when you’ll start writing good posts again. Or at least mediocre ones. But no one knows. Not even you. And so you reluctantly hit “publish” even though you’re not particularly proud of your work.

It’s annoying when you have countless ideas for potential blog posts but no time to actually write them

And then you end up with pointless posts like this in their place because that’s all you have time for and you figure something is better than nothing.
