Now I Can Be a Real Person Again

everything except boots- forever 21, boos- GoJane
my happy nail polish color

Hiya! I missed you guys!  For most of this week, I have been locked in my room, furiously working on my senior essays.  Since I am a double major, I have to write two separate essays, one in Spanish and one in English which has meant twice the fun…not! My suitemates have only seen me on my way to shower, get food, or go to the bathroom.  As of thirty minutes ago, I have submitted a draft of each paper to my senior advisers, so now I just have to get their comments, hopefully do only a little light editing, and turn in the final copies!  In the meantime, I am feeling quite light and free, so I can be a real person again!  I’ll be taking the weekend to catch up on all the tweets, posts, and comments that I missed while I was in my bubble and I can’t wait!  Plus it is supposed to be nice and sunny here tomorrow so hopefully that will mean some knitting outdoors.  I’m so excited to NOT think about anything academic for a couple of days!  See you soon! =)

    Colors are definitely gaining more respect in my book! The mint I have is Mint Candy Apple by Essie but it says it's no longer available. I picked it up at an Ulta shop last year. American Apparel has a nice one too, called Office!

    Thank you Casee! I have always loved trying new colors on my nails and right now I'm in phase where the brighter the color is, the better! That mint shade sounds lovely- I have been hunting for one for this spring! Where did you find it? Thank you, I did have a lovely weekend and got plenty of knitting in =) Hope you had a great weekend too!

    I was all about the pink until you flashed your happy nails – loving that shade! I (unsurprisingly) never go for color on my nails unless it's red. Beyond that I usually just do black or white. I finally caved and got a mint shade last year which I only used once. Definitely need to get it back out for spring!

    I hope your essays went as well as can be and that you had a nice little weekend with sunshine and knitting. ;)

    thanks for your comment! It must be such a relief for you to have handed in the drafts! I cannot believe that you made all of those knitted things in your 'pay it forward' post! They are incredible! I wish I could do that!

    P.S. Thanks for the tip off about Michaels for the picnic basket! I know, in fact, that I can find one there! It must have slipped my mind, so thanks for the reminder.

    I love that nail polish – it's good to have a pop of a happy color when feeling a bit stressed, isn't it? Good luck with all the work ahead!

Hope the weather lets you enjoy your lighter workload :) thanks for the comment on my blog – if you can get hold of a Crunchie Chocolate bar (I don't know if they sell them in the US) then that's chocolate and honey comb – Deeeelisssshhhhhh ha-ha :)
