Some photos from a hall activity I went on last weekend to a pumpkin patch to buy pumpkins (which I didn't do) and eat pumpkin doughnuts and and drink hot apple cider (which I definitely did do).

good days, bad days

I thought I was getting sick a few days ago. Which was not okay because I have awesome plans for this weekend that do not involve nursing a cold...

This week has been pretty chill, though. I had not one, but TWO, classes canceled yesterday and went to this really great literary reading on campus last night. And to top it all off, after my dance class got out early today around 1:30, I am now officially on Fall Break time! So no classes tomorrow and no classes on Tuesday!

I'm staying on campus again this year. But, unlike last year, I actually have plans for this year! I'm getting off campus! (Hopefully for a good portion of this weekend!) So I'm really excited. I do have quite a bit to do before Tuesday's classes (including studying for a quiz and reading a whole play for my first coaching session for my partner scene), but the main focus of this weekend will be Fall Fun. I'm so ready for this weekend, you have no idea.

(I feel like these pictures don't really do this dress (or this outfit) justice... But they were the only decent ones in the batch. I'll get decent pictures of this dress someday...)

a kind of goodbye

This week has been pretty mellow schoolwork-wise. It seems like it went by terribly slow, however. I found myself sitting on my bed after finishing up assignments and feeling very bored and unmotivated to do anything a lot this week. Next week should be busier and less "boring" for me. Ah, we'll see.

This outfit is the last attempt to hang onto nice weather. They days have been getting significantly colder (although the sun hasn't completely left yet, so that's good) and after this weekend, the highs are going to be dropping with every day. So I'll probably really be breaking out the coat and starting to layer more and more. I'm also probably going to start wearing more earthy tones and dark colors, like blacks and blues, more often. So today, I'm wearing color (with a little black to balance it out) and florals as a kind of goodbye to weather I probably won't seen until mid-April.

I'm so thankful it's Friday, though! There's some good things planned for the next few days. Like surprise parties and possible outings to pumpkin patches and Thai restaurants and hall bonding! And lots of homework for Tuesday, but that's more for Sunday. Tonight is also the annual haunted house/Halloween dance party that's actually hosted by my dorm and a neighboring dorm. I don't know if I'm going... People generally dress up for it (there's people dressed up in costumes already today!) and I don't have a costume. And it's $3, which I could afford, but I don't know if I want to spend a lot of money right now... So we'll see. I might just watch movies with other people that might not go (or watch more episodes of Criminal Minds by myself...).

Oh! The past few days I have been dying to watch The Godfather Part 1 & 2 (since about Sunday maybe...?). I watched all three movies a few years ago because we have the boxed set at home. But most of my friends up here aren't really big movie-watchers (at least in the way I am) and they haven't seen any of them before! So I texted my dad the other day about sending them to me and he responded in a timely fashion. Long story short, he's going to send them to me in the next package that my mum puts together (which might take a few weeks...) and then I get to watch them with my friends who haven't seen them and need to because it's an absolute tragedy that they haven't yet.

Last week my room mate made blooming tea so I could see what it looked like. I was going to have some, but I ended up not having any time to because I had to turn something in and then went to lunch before going to class. But I got some pretty cool pictures of the whole process!

I was so busy this weekend. My dad came for Parents' Weekend and we did so much! We saw the musical put on by the school, went shopping for more printer ink, dance shoes and food, went to visit some friends in Idaho, and saw The Social Network. Everything was just so great and went as planned! It was so good to talk to him and just spend time with him. I'm definitely a "daddy's girl." But I'm totally fine with it. I love my dad!

raise your head up

The weather's been getting colder so my clothes have been reflecting that and the fact that I've been super tired all the time and a little down. So lots of darker colors and different variations and shades of blue. This outfit came together before Creative Writing because I slept through my 8:00am class and because I haven't worn this skirt since I arrived in Spokane. I forgot that it tends to ride up a lot and felt a little immodest for a good portion of the day... Good thing I was wearing tights! It was quite comfortable though!

It also quickly devolved into the tank top and sweater with short gym shorts after dinner. I had a monologue to memorize and a room mate to entertain with my belting of Disney songs in between recitations. It was quite a successful night.

We also busted out this amazing mask that my room mate's grandmother sent her in a package. It's the creepiest/best thing in the world. I wore it for a while and danced and songs goofy songs for a while last night too after I had my monologue down. And then my friend from down the hall stopped by and did homework with us. We then watched this TERRIBLE movie afterwards. Like, not even in a "this is kind of funny how bad this movie is" kind of terrible. It was just really bad.

So that was my night yesterday.

My Dad Gets Here Tomorrow!!! I'm so freakin' excited! In the meantime, I'm going to go read Emerson and possibly watch a better movie with my room mate to redeem the atrocious one we watched last night...

mood swings

I think this blouse is one of my absolute favorite items of clothing right now. It just draws me in when I get dressed in the morning most days.

I wore this outfit to go to a middle school with my acting class. I felt like a cool college student on the outside and then was kind of my normal awkward, nerdy self and might have ruined the effect... Most of the students were also my hight or taller so...

Life has been crazy and hectic recently. Lots of reading and writing and not enough sleep. (I actually slept through my 8:00am class this morning on accident...) So I've been wearing whatever most days and then changing into very comfortable (and random...) clothes to do homework in the evenings almost immediately after dinner or classes (depending on the day).

I'm just trying to get through this week though. My dad's coming up this weekend and I'm ditching homework until Sunday night so I can have a fun weekend doing stuff that my dad and I normally do together (just in Spokane instead of back home). We'll probably see The Social Network and go shopping for jazz shoes and groceries and visit our friends over in Sand Point. Exciting stuff! Especially since I don't have to eat in the cafeteria for like the whole weekend...! Best. Thing. Ever!

Heyo Room Mate Date with the best room mate ever!!! We had chicken strips for dinner (best dinner choice of the week thus far...) and then went and got frozen yogurt. There have only been two times where I've been full from a meal while at school this year. This was one of them. It totally put me in a super drowsy mood, which wasn't super conducive to doing homework... Good news is that everything got done on time!

On Sunday I went to a Catholic Mass for a class where the whole service was in Gregorian chant. It was beautiful. And then when we walked out of the chapel, the sunset was so spectacular. Kind of took my breath away.

We had special visitors the other night! Aren't they the cutest??
