slightly stressed and mildly musical.

outfit details:
dress - thrifted
vest - Modcloth
heels - Kohl's
(woah, look at that!  a three-piece outfit!  strange...)

Junior year.  Hmm.  Never a dull moment, which is always a good thing.  I think.  Maybe.

Until "never a dull moment" means "never a free moment" and I'm here blogging when I probably should be studying for psychology or doing jumping jacks or sleeping.  But I like blogging, dammit, and not even this absurd amount of work so ridiculously early in the school year is going to stop me!

One thing I'm super duper excited about is entirely non-school-related.  Oooh, intrigue!  The guitar that my dad and I ordered a week or so ago finally arrived!  I've been teaching myself to play the guitar for [maybe] two months, and I'm really enjoying it.  I can "play" (read: kind of make sounds that don't sound totally horrible) quite a few instruments: the violin (for which I actually had six years of classical training, so that counts as real playing and not "playing"... Though only somewhat because I no longer take lessons or play regularly.), the ukulele (fun!  And cheap!  And fun!), the piano (hah.  I can plunk out melodies.  Does that count as playing?), and now the guitar.  Oh, and the mandolin!  I like the mandolin, except it's super painful to play if you have no calluses.  It took me about a week to develop my calluses, and I am ever so proud of them.  Don't be hatin' on my calluses, now.

So!  Yes!  School is stressful as ever, but this year has got to be better than last.  It just has to be.  So I'm attempting to keep an optimistic outlook on things, and maybe I'll even exercise or eat healthy or something to go along with that.  Who knows?  Today is the first day of the rest of your life, as they say.  Ye gods, now I'm rambling about clichés.  Please stop me.  Yikes!

What else is new?  One of my best friends, Julie, is away at college, and I miss her a lot.  I have a new TV show to add to my list of favourites.  It's called Sherlock, and it's written by the same man who writes Doctor Who.  It's pretty nifty.  (And when I say "pretty nifty", I mean "Sherlock is really attractive and ooh, the plot is actually interesting!  Like, for reals!")  When I kidnap Julie away from the land of college, we're going to watch it.  Because we're super cool like that :)

Thaaaaaaaaat was a lot of writing for someone who has other things she should be doing!  Anyhow, I hope you all are having wonderful weeks so far (even though Tuesdays are the worst day of the week, augh) and fall is almost here!  That sentence is not connected in any way at all.  But hey, I love fall :)
