Basement


I just realized the other day that I never put my hair up.


I took these shots in the grimy basement of my dorm, yum. I liked the lighting despite the creepiness of the atmosphere. Whenever I go down here to do my laundry I feel like someone's watching me and waiting to jump out and attack...which would actually be pretty cool (as long as i survived that is - with a massive battle scar to show for it of course).




I'm a little bit stressed out and overwhelmed with a lot of things right now but I'm trying to stay relaxed and not worry so much. There's just way too much to think about and not enough time. There's also way too much drama and too many decisions to make. Sigh. I should really be working on my Resume since I'll have to submit one for a couple of things over the next few weeks. This should be fun. :)

  8. Your hair looks really nice up! I'm the same, I always forget that I can actually do something with my hair other than have it out.

    So much stress in life atm. Anyway, you definitely make that AA skirt look like your own <3 xo

  12. White tights! Right on. I love your skirt! I tried it on maybe 20 different times at 20 different AA stores and regretted each time when I left without buying it.

    I'm feeling the waves of stress and overwhelmption (I know that's not a word) too. I don't know what to say! I just hope it all works out and you end up having some kick-ass stories to tell at parties when everyone's a little tipsy.

    lots of love,
    jenny

  14. Jen, seriously you're such a cutie!! hair up or hair down.. I would be creeped out to in the basement.. then again, I would make sure to always bring someone with me. ha ha.. You know I never like to put my hair up in public either.. my ears stick out and I've grown to love them, but my hair just looks better down.. maybe in the future I'll do a post with my hair up.. :)

    Love & Aloha,
    S

  35. I love your skirt!
    I used to be really scared of my dorm's laundry room too -- the lighting and creakiness just seemed like the makings for a horror moment.
    Hope everything calms down a bit for you this week!
