Feeling a bit qualmy about my outfit today...

I'm a little bit in doubt about my outfit.  I hate this uneasy feeling of being uncomfortable in my own threads.  You'll be glad to know that my mottled mind is at ease as I have found this trend report via WHOWHATWEAR--for I am wearing creme colored lace tights with a burnt sun dried rust orange/brown and black buffalo checkered button down, a worn forest green blazer, a black waist skirt, a dark forest green waist belt with a gold buckle, a creme sequined bow, and my brown clark booties.  I thought I looked just swell when I looked in the mirror, but then I walked out the door and the sun hit my outfit in a way that made me want to toss my cookies.  Then I booked it to class so quickly that I'm sure those who saw me probably thought I was about to pee my pants (yes I was that frantic).  I must say I don't care that I was booking it and looked like I needed to use the bathroom--Girl gotta get to class. Anyway, the point of this was...to communicate the fact that I feel alright about my clothing choice today because of this trend report...my neutral melting pot puke of an outfit today may not be so bad after all.

Corn

Some photos I took of some Indian corn at Milburn Orchards.  I feel like the exposure was perfect and brought out the intrinsic patterns and colors of each kernel. Indian corn--quite a sight to see..no? Yes.

GRADUATION

 
Vitamin C- "Graduation Song"
So...I'm spending another night in the lab..but it's all good because we're all talking about graduation and being Seniors (weird). Reminiscing, but also looking forward gives me some much needed motivation. I know I may not have a social life anymore, but it's alright because I know all this hard work is eventually going to pay off.  Though I'm mentally alright for now, I still hope I get to leave by 2am tonight....

LIFE.

I don't have one. Oh well.

WHAT A DREAM.

These framed speakers were created by Rebecca Paul and Mikal Jessie Hameed of ReBaroque.  By literally combing art and music through vintage fabrics and frames, these NY based designers have created a sustainable relationship between music and art that is simultaneously classical, modern, and beautiful. I am obsessed and am itching to get one some day.

Needing some comfort...

What is it? Day 4? This is rough.  I've been feeling like crap.  I mean, it's definitely NOT single handedly caused by not having a Facebook.  Its mostly because I pulled an all-nighter, and haven't gotten more than 4 hours of sleep each night this week.  Therefore, my eating schedule is off, as is my work out schedule...UGH. When will this end? ):

Well, I found this artist, Abigail Reynolds, and her work provides me with temporary comfort.  I don't know why I'm so drawn these, it's probably the visual texture caused by her folded paper/origami technique.

Self-Induced Facebook Withdrawal Documentary

WHAT THE HAY IS GOING ON?
I am giving up Facebook for 2 months.  So, it has been thought of by many and verbalized to me, from the many, that I am absurd--and I can't agree more. I haven't met a single soul that believes that I can commit such an outlandish act.  It has been attempted by some, executed by barely any, and thought of by probably thousands.  Due to the blasphemy that I am committing it has occurred to me that this is not to be taken lightly.  This is epic and is considered, by some, social suicide.  So, in my quest to socially kill myself,  I have taken it upon myself to create a self-documentary of this self induced journey of social exilement.
WHY, GRACE? WHY?
Because this is the most important year of my academic life.  For my Fashion Design major FASH467 aka Senior Collections is the one class all Design majors work their whole 3 years to get to.  It hasn't been an easy journey to get here. Much sleep, brain cells, blood (we work with needles), and sanity has been lost.  I notice I spend AT LEAST 1.5 hours of Facebook a day...sometimes 3 (embarrassment all over).  I CANNOT AFFORD to devote that much time to something that barely benefits me.  Senior Collections, volunteering, learning how to cook, Space Cadet Sadie, enjoying senior year, and applying for an FSF scholarship are my top priorities.  And at the moment my priorities seem to be askew. This is why I do the things I do.
STRUCTURE/OBJECTIVES
Without direction we are all doomed.  Things grow faulty without any structure.  Like the skeletal system to the body I must, and I mean I must, create an outline to the chaos of this chaotic act in order to efficiently document it.  Therefore, here are a couple of objectives/things to learn from this 2 month separation from the biggest social network of our time.
  • Is being socially disconnected via facebook actually detrimental to my social life?
  • Will people stop talking to me?
  • Will the number of invites to all the latest parties and events happening on and off campus decline?
  • Will the number of photos/videos I am tagged in decline, increase, or remain the same?
  • Will I have more time to focus on my studies and other things I want to pursue in life?
  • Will my grades improve if said time is allotted to study time?
  • Will I substitute other networking sites (twitter, myspace, blogger, tumblr, etc) in place of Facebook therefore defeating the purpose of socially exiling myself
  • Along with all of these questions, interviews with my peers will take place to provide feedback from the general college population.
DISCLAIMER
I am fully aware of the act I am about to commit and of the social restraint I am putting on myself. Therefore, I hope I still have as many friends going into this as I do coming out.
DISCLAIMER II
This is not to be taken too seriously. I do not put that much of an emphasis by defining my social life through Facebook. I thought it'd be a nice laugh. Sorry if you thought otherwise!!!

"Day for Night"

By Vanessa Bruno
Directed by Stéphanie Di Giusto and Lou Doillon et Valentine Fillol Cordier
The cinematography of this video is filled with mystery.  The hues of the dark night exude eeriness that makes me feel in some what of a daze.  Can we say in love? Yes. We. Can.
