Back in full force.

Happy October! I cannot believe how fast time goes. It's so crazy to me. I can barely keep up!

I'm happy to report that i've taken a much needed mental vacation, and i'm feeling so much better about everything. I've been doing some planning, and i've come up with some new ideas to make this blog more me, and personal. I'm really excited about things becoming more genuine, and i hope you guys will too.

I had the day off of work yesterday, and i got almost everything in my project box finished. It was mostly just a lot of spray painting, hanging up some pictures. Just small odds and ends of things. But, i was very happy to be able to mark those things off my list.

Since it's October, let's talk Halloween for a minute, shall we?
What do you guys want to be for Halloween? I seriously love Halloween so much. I love dressing up, but i always prefer to dress like a boy. I don't know why, but i really do!
Here are my ideas for this year.

Chuckie from the Rugrats
Darth Vader
(this picture reminds me of me and my best friend so much. If i dressed up as darth vader, she's definitely be Audrey Hepburn.)
Indian girl

What do you think i should be?

Under the weather.

This last week has been really weird for me. It seemed like every day i had was a bad one, i couldn't get out of my funk. I was sleeping a lot later in the day than i normally do, not really following my daily routines. Me and Nathan got into a gross fight, and i ended up getting my feelings hurt pretty bad. Sunday, i had the entire day off work, and i woke up feeling like crap. I told my roommates that i was emotionally and physically under the weather, and we spent the entire day laying in bed and watching movies.
And then the week was completely over. Almost entirely wasted.

I've been second-guessing myself a lot here lately, especially when it comes to this blog. I feel like i've kind of lost my voice as a blogger, and i'm having trouble seeing why i really do this. I've always wanted to have a blog, and write, and connect with people, but it seems like a lot of my posts are forced, and i'm sure you can see that too. I've been trying lots of new things, like Wednesday Wishes and Friday Favorites, but i always end up getting stressed out because i never know what to wish for, or i can't think of what my favorite things are right off the top of my head. I don't feel like i'm connecting with anyone.

I feel like a lot of the things that i'm interested in aren't things are are popular in the blogger world, and that's completely fine. But i want to post about those things, and i want to find other bloggers who enjoy those same things. I guess i'm having a hard time finding my "crowd."

I'm not trying to be pathetic. This is just how i feel and there isn't any use in trying to cover it up with a daily outfit post. (although, those are fine too!) This is just something i wanted to get off my chest.

And here's a print i really love, so this post isn't just me complaing.
you can find it here.

Wednesday Wishes!

Well, Hello folks! It's time for another installment of Wednesday Wishes. I'm very happy to report that this Wednesday didn't sneak up on me like the previous ones. This week i was ready for it!

Wednesday Wishes!
1. I wish that in the next 8 days i could get 9 more people to follow my little blog. That way it would even out to me having a new blog follower for every single day in the month of September! I think that would be really awesome. I'm crossing my fingers big time for that one!

2. I switched face washes the other day, and my skin had an awful reaction to it, and now i have a cluster of about 6 zits on my chin. I'm REALLY wishing that those would go away. and FAST.

3. Typically, Sunday is a day of pure relaxation for me. This week i'm wishing for lots of motivation on Sunday. I have so much housework that i want (need) to get done. I've got a "project" box sitting full in my bedroom floor, and i really wanna tackle that. Get some stuff on the walls, do a little redecorating.

4. I wish that on my future thrifting expeditions that i start to only buy things that i really love, instead of everything that i think is kinda cute and .25 cents. I come home, and all of a sudden my house looks like a flea market. Not good.

that's all for today.

Friday Favorites: Holga Edition

First of all, i want to thank everyone who commented on my last post. I appreciate all of your very informative comments, and i appreciate it greatly!

I've been doing my research today, and i think i'm really leaning towards getting a holga camera. After looking at so many Holga related things, i was inspired to do my Friday Favorites post on them.

Friday Favorites: Holga Edition
1. I found this website to be very informative. It's basically where i got all of my information. I reccomend that if you know nothing about Holga or Diana cameras, like me, that you check it out.

2. The website offers a special White Stripes version of the Holga camera.
This is the "Jack" camera.
And this is the "Meg" camera.
I think these cameras are so pretty. They're a package deal and they come with lots of goodies, but they're very expensive!

3. Here are a few pretty Holga images just for good measure.
aren't they pretty?

Wednesday Wishes!

I can't believe that it's already Wednesday. Seriously, i have no idea where the time goes. I can't keep up with time at all anymore. It's so so sad.

But, here it is Wednesday Wishes!

1. I bought some brand new OPI nail polish yesterday. I painted my nails last night, and they're already chipped. Totally freaking chipped. Luckily, i found the bottle of polish at a thrift store, so it only set me back .50 cents. I've never owned an OPI polish, because i'm SUCH a cheapo. But, now i'll never buy any! So, i guess i wish my nails weren't chipped!

2. I've had such an off day today. Nothing really went wrong, but nothing really went great. It was just so blah. And everyone was really getting on my nerves. So, tomorrow i wish that i have a much better day.

3. After developing other people's film all day, every day, i've decided i'd like to buy a Holga or a Diana camera. I don't know anything at all about either of these, so i wish i had a lot more knowledge on toy cameras. And i wish you fine people would educate me! I don't even know which one i'm leaning towards. I just know i want one, because i love how pretty film can be. And i know that these cameras can deliver that.

Which one?!


4. I wish that i could save up a few more dollars to finish up my half-sleeve! I have been really dying to get tattooed lately. Well, i always want to get tattooed, but i really want to right now because my stupid boyfriend keeps getting awesome tattoos.

that's all for today guys!
