rain rain come again

I'm becoming a very bad blogger, and that makes me very ashamed because I want to stay on top of things, but it's really hard to blog along with school. I think it's more the picture taking that I can't seem to fit into my schedule, although I think it will get better soon once I learn to properly manage my time in university. These past couple of weeks have been hectic, what with enormous amounts of readings, my social life, plus trying to get involved in many extra curricular activities. Plus I need to fit sleep into the picture as well.
Anyways, today was a rainy day, so I took out my yellow wellies. I love rainy autumn weather, it's my favourite time of the year. I love wearing big wooly sweaters, tights, raincoats and most of all I love sitting in cafe's drinking coffee with friends while looking out at the rain falling outside. It makes me positively squeal with glee.

book/worm

My second week of university is over, and so far I'm still loving it. Everything about university is so completely amazing that I cannot put into words how happy I am that I am finally at this point in my life.
As I mentioned before, my University is split into little colleges that act as your home base. Sort of like the houses in Harry Potter. Anyways, every year, each of the colleges has their own book sale, and my college always has theirs first. So today when it opened I went with one of my very good friends where we spent a good hour looking through various books. I ended up buying a lot of books, so many in fact that I had to put them all in a huge box which I then had to lug on the subway during rush hour on my way home. The little blue book I'm holding in my pictures is one of the books I bought.
I also happened to run into the lovely Elizabeth from Chic Heroin today. I knew she went to my university, but I never expected to run into her because the campus is so big. Yet today I did. It was completely random, and weird (in a good way) because you never expect to see another blogger in a real life. It was rather exciting though because I've never met any other bloggers before.

I'm off to go do some reading now. Have a good day everybody!

Ps. The random chair is still there in the park. I'm in half the mind to take it home with me. It is a rather nice chair.

smell of wine and cheap perfume

I had a wonderful day today. It was just one of those days where everything falls into place, and is exactly how it should be. One of my favourite parts was getting caught in a light shower while browsing various clothing shops after my class. I had to take cover in the shops to avoid the rain and in the process I discovered an underground shopping mall filled with the most marvelous stores. I'd always known about this mall, but I never had any idea that it extended so far underneath downtown Toronto.
Anyways, this outfit is probably one of my favourites so far. It's most likely due to the fact that it's not what I usually tend to wear, what with the shorts and all, but it contains many of my favourite things such as tights, the colour red, and rolled up sleeves. I don't wear pants much and I never wear shorts in public (without tights), so this outfit is quite the compromise. Shorts and tights is one of my favourite things to wear, especially when I'm having an off day. It's comfy, looks unique, and still allows me to create a good outfit.
Tomorrow will be the end of my second week of university. It feels like it's all going by so much quicker now. I can't believe that soon it'll be a month of school gone.

Hope you're all having an amazing day!
Ps. I am so in love with the song "Don't Stop Believing by Journey". I think I've used lyrics from that song as blog titles way too many times.

look up

What a long and exhausting day. Although I'm only in my second week of university, I'm consuming way too much coffee late at night, eating random combinations of food due to the inability to think straight from my exhaustion (pickles and cheese) I've traded my gorgeous book bag/laptop bag for my old backpack due to the immense load of books I need to carry, I keep getting on the wrong subway trains on my way home meaning I spend an even longer time on the commute, and I've got way too much reading. Yet, this just adds to my love of university life. I love everything about university so far; the ivy covered buildings, the hours wasted between classes studying or spending time with my new friends, taking notes during lectures and even the exhaustion. Even though I might change my mind about how I feel as the weeks progress, at the moment, I love it all. I'm so happy that I'm able to have this opportunity to go to university, and learn and experience new things. These past couple of weeks have been completely live changing in a good way.

This was my outfit today. I took the pictures when I got home at 9PM so please ignore my facial expressions.

contemplation

I haven't looked through many of the Spring 2010 collections so far but from the ones I have seen, I have positively fallen in love with Rodarte. It's completely different from anything that I would ever think of wearing, but compared with all the other collections, this is the one collection where I would want to see everything in my closet. The beauty of the clothing simply stuns me. When I look at the clothes I'm not even sure what I'm looking at, for to me it looks more like a piece of art than an article of clothing.

What do you all think?

the empty chair

Today was an amazing day. I finally got to sleep in which I definitely needed. I spent the rest of the day studying which was actually nice until I got to my economics reading. There really is too much to read. Anyways, in the evening I went out with some of my very very awesome friends to dinner followed by browsing random stores in the mall and taking lots of pictures. It was a great way to unwind from the hectic week, and just enjoy the company of people who are truly lovely.
On other news, my birthday is coming up in about 2 weeks and it's really exciting. I can't believe that I will be 18, it's just so weird to think about it. I still have no idea what I'm doing or what I will wear. Although it is my 18th, I don't want to do anything big, I'd rather just have something small with a couple close friends.

Hope you all had an amazing day!!

Ps. I saw this chair in the park today and I knew that I simply had to take my outfit photos with it.
