More B-Day Pictures

To go along with my obsession of trees I got this cool tree/bird glass thing. I'm going to put all my buttons in it and hopefully fill it up!

The teachers I work with made me some yummy brownies! 

I got this amazing DVD from my mom! It is such an awesome movie!!

One of the teachers, Kat, got me a really cool necklace. It can be worn three different ways! 
Very cool in my book :)

Just wanted to let you know I'm feeling a bit better.
Though not great yet, I'm still very happy with my life and very thankful for all I have. 
Both people and possessions.
It's so easy to forget how lucky I am. 
Working hard to stay positive and do my best at everything I can is my goal for the week.

I'm sorry to report that I've just not been feeling the whole blog thing lately.
I've not been feeling much of much lately.
I'm not sure where this funk came from and honestly, I don't like it much.
But here it is. 
I can't change with a snap of my fingers but I'm doing my best to stay positive and work through this.

I've been on spring break from school and work this week. (no school no work!)
I celebrated my birthday last Friday and my friend Sully's birthday Saturday and Sunday.
I spent time with my dad on Sunday.
Hung out at home and with friends Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Went to Eureka Springs, Arkansas with my friend Amanda Thursday.
And here we are today, Friday. 
It's not been a very productive week like I wanted it to be. 
School starts again on Monday.
No me gusta.
I'm ready for summer to be here. I don't really have a reason other than this semester will be over. I don't know what is going to happen once this semester is over. I don't know if I'll get a full time job or stay in school. I really wanted to take a break from school but the more I think about it the more I realize that doing that will not be such a good idea if I want to come back and get my bachelors, which I do. But as each week passes I feel less and less motivated to do the work for my classes that I am required to do. 
I want to be productive and busy and work hard but I can't seem to make myself do those things. Not just with school but with other things in my life too. It is very frustrating and making getting anything accomplished impossible.

Sorry for the vent. Thanks for listening :)

Happy Birthday To Me!!

I am officially 21 today! 
A real adult as some would say.
You know how usually when it's your birthday and people ask you, "Do you feel a year older?" most of the time you respond with "No..not really" and usually you don't (I never really have) because it is just another day in a series of days that make up your life. Just because we give a specific day a certain title it doesn't change that day. Not usually.
But today as I was walking to my car in the drive way to load my things and go to work I noticed that I did feel different. I did feel older. I was walking a bit taller - shoulders back, chin high.
This was a strange feeling. 
To actually be into my twenties. 
I don't feel like I have been alive this long but I'm happy with the life I have lived so far!

This is what I saw when I walked into work:

How sweet is that?!
Now I'm sitting at the desk and every time a student walks in (I usually turn to great them) but today I feel like turning to great them is just me asking for them to say "Happy Birthday" to me. haha! I probably sound ridiculous right now. But almost everyone has said something to me with a smile. I like smiles :)
I will be posting more as the day goes on so check back!

So for my 3-D Design art class we were given the assignment to make a hat. We can use one material for a base, one material for a binder (to hold it together) and one material for the skin or decorations. A lot of people are using paper and glue but I'm gonna go with the fashion side of me and use fabric and thread and decorate with buttons!! 
It's gonna be sooo cute!
(I'll post pictures when I'm finished with it)

This is the tutorial I found..I'm gonna try it out and see how it works. If it doesn't work then I'll figure something else out and let you know how I end up doing it. 
I might even take pictures and post them to show you how I do it!!

I'm SOOO excited!!!

This is my inspiration. Plus buttons!

The big birthday is in two days :) I'm excited. 
Have a wonderful day!!!

13 of 30 ~ 14 of 30

Why hello there! 
It's strange to say this but...I've missed my blog. 
Friday I helped my costume design teacher's daughter out with a science project so no 30 for 30 that usual it didn't happen on Saturday or Sunday either. And Monday I had to re-wear Friday's outfit so they could take a picture of me to put on her display board thingy so no 30 for 30 there either.

Here is Tuesdays outfit:
Belt: Thrifted
Orange Heart Necklace: Old Navy
Door Hinge Necklace: Made by me!

This is one of my favorite dresses! AND it has pockets :)
Me gusta.

Today's outfit:
Tights: ???
Belt: Thrifted
Pearl Necklace: Belonged to my great grandmother

Wow. The more I look at pictures of me the more I realize I need to open my eyes. Or wear make up. Or contacts. Or get a tan! haha. 
Anywho. The big birthday is next week! I've been making plans and all that fun stuff! I think I might go shopping on Saturday for a bit with the mother and have lunch on Sunday with some of the fam. And it's gonna be an aaallllll weeek pppaaaaarrrrtttaaayyy.
Not really. I'm not the partying type. Plus I have work and class every morning at 8am. So partying isn't really an option. Neither is parrrrttaayying. 

Well before I make too much of a fool of myself (probably already have) I'm gonna go get 40 winks..whatever that means!
Night ya'll.
