Saint Louis has been my home for the past 3 years and though I've been going about my daily college life in this city, I never really went out on the town and explored until this past Spring Break. I've been to the Arch before and saw the exhibition inside about Lewis and Clark and all my memories of 8th grade history came flying back. Did you know that Meriwether Lewis was an AWFUL speller? It hurt my eyes to read his journal entries haha. Sadly that day the tickets to go up to the top were sold out, so we contemplated a helicopter tour but decided against it. It was still nice to enjoy the sunshine and grab some Tibetan and Indian buffet and venture out of our comfort zones. [Ad]venturing was so worth it.

I feel bad that I'm experiencing a fashion rut, basically an all-around motivation rut as I sit at home and gobble down my Dad's delicious homecooking. Just thinking about having to eat unhealthy dorm food hurts. That's the interesting thing about moving off campus into an apartment, because now I'll have to actually cook and clean. Luckily I'll only have to worry about 6 housemates and an entire neighborhood stare at me as I take outfit photos instead of the usual entire college campus. Also, I miss my ephemeral black hair. I'm determined not to dye again and just let it grow out in all its ombre glory.

Hopefully in 3 days I'll do something more worthwhile than park my tush in this same spot and watch Scrubs all day long (I think Dr. Cox's cynicism is contagious to even my thoughts). Back to the Ole Midwest for some 9 to 5 work, which I have actually never had the pleasure(/torture?) of experiencing. 

Daily necessities to bring to the lab: coffee mug, laptop, brain, fashionable work outfit. Check, check, check, and check [hopefully]! :)

P.S. I made my Twitter public so follow and tweet tweet away!

Oh man, speaking of ombre - I just found out (after recording a graduation video for someone), that my hair is actually in an ombre state.

I swear I redyed it back to black and it really was super black. I don't know what happened, but it's black on top, and super orange/brown towards the bottom. Weird D:

I want to experience housing outside of being home. I'm constantly at home. I'm being babied until I graduate from college x_x

That tunic is so pretty and paired with the leather jacket? Perfection. Oh and if you want some tips for thrifting, check out the '15 Tips for Thrift Store' shopping on my blog (you can find a link on the right side under 'popular posts'), it's not hard to get started and it saves me sooo much money!

@Michelleesque

That suddenly brought back memories of pulling three allnighters in row, and only having cup of noodles for sustenance...

dorm/campus living was fun though!

I've been to the arch once and it was a cool experience :p The ride to the top was in an interesting egg shaped car :p It looks bright and sunny in St Louis :)

Enjoy the 9-5 torture. Time goes by faster if you have things to do, and coffee to consume. I get addicted to Scrubs as well. Have you seen the Big Bang Theory? =p
