Stars & Stripes

In the past few years my style has changed a ton. I still want to be able to just throw something on but I am beyond thick skate shirts. Now I want to be ready quick and comfortable but still look nice. I have been loving Zara lately because it's just simple and beautiful. You can look put together with only a few pieces.

(thats what Trent and I say when life kinda stinks but there's nothing to do but laugh about it)

So I'm sittin here on the verge of insanity, (bit melodramatic...) icing my shin splints and doing my homework, feeling lethargic and sorry for myself, when I decided that's just not okay.

I really am a generally happy person and can only stand so much moping around, even from myself. (But I do firmly believe some moping is called for before moving on from some things...know what I mean?) 

So I decided to stop it. It's been a dang week and instead of just thinking about all of my short comings as a wife, friend, scholar, creative person, etc. I can't let that weigh me down and going forward I can do better. Sure, my feelings were real, but that is not a good reason to not be different going forward. 

One of my pet-peeves is when people let the past determine their future and let life just happen to them. It's such a negative outlook. You may not be happy with everything in your life at the moment, but life is constantly changing and so are you. It won't last forever, the sun will come up tomorrow, you are the master of your fate, etc. etc. etc. If you don't like something, change it. Easier said than done but I can't very well complain, (for toooo long,) about something I'm not willing to do anything about. I can create my own options and my own destiny. I believe in choices, like Dumbledore said, it's our choices that define us, not our abilities.  

Well, I'm going to mull over my own advice; here are some pictures from the last couple months!

On his b-day, he is my cuddly teddy bear!

 Sasha and Gordo came up to see us and went to the fair with us!
Also I ganked this from the talented duo that is Ryley and Chelse!
Anndd, I really like this picture of me. I was having a great hair night!

 Bridge jumping, it was COLD!!! and I love Sasha's indian dance in the back!

well sir...

School is kickin my trash.

I don't have time for anything but homework or the Biggest Winner program, (which I barely have time for). 

I don't have time to watch my favorite shows.

I don't have time to shower.

I don't have time to call my favorite people.

I don't have time to get over my cold.

Yes, I am whining.

Yes, I will get over it.

And in true girl fashion, now that I have vented I will feel better.
