Passing Notes

Lately I have been feeling pretty bad about myself and other areas of my life that I have been struggling in lately. Today though randomly as I was checking over my finances and looking over my recent financial aid award information and writing out checks for rent, loan payments, and other expenses I saw a little sunshine for a moment.

I am working on doing something that I actually want to be doing and I am very much in control over a lot of aspects of my life. I'm doing it on my own and yeah it can be defeating sometimes to get a paycheck and then immediately turn to having to break it down to all the places you need to make payments be it rent, a loan payment or any other expense. However, at least I am able to do this and I can take out my check book and pay my rent and keep up with making loan payments even when it can be a bit of a struggle sometimes.

My personal life is not so bad either. Recently I have realized several of my "friends" have proven far less than reliable and I have felt very disconnected and even hurt when they just never call me back or whatever the reason or excuse may be (not to say there haven't been legitimate reasons, but I think we all know sometimes that our emotions get the best off and it hurts all the same). Still this has made those in my life who are there for me stand out even more and I realize that I still have many friends that care when I have a bad day or just want to bitch and don't care if I need to text them something stupid at 6 am or would come to help when I have trouble starting my car. I hope you know who you are and I appreciate your friendship greatly. Great friends are hard to find I think and I feel lucky to have as many great friends as I do.

Style Influence for the Day...

I have never been a Goldie Hawn fan by any means but I recently saw her in Cactus Flower she was so adorable and I loved every single outfit she wore. The hair. Those eyelashes! New love and appreciation for the 60's and 70's. 1969 Goldie Hawn had style.

Here are a few favorite looks from the film. Cactus Flower and other Goldie looks:

Mixed Tapes

Being back in Seattle has been a very different experience than I originally thought it would be. It has been nice to be back home and see friends and close the distance between those that are stationed in the west coast while I am miles away on the east coast for most of the year. However, this summer it has become more clear to me how much people have changed or I have changed. Not to say its bad, I just feel change has happened for everyone as people move on, get stuck, grow up, and in some cases refuse to grow up. 

This feeling might come from the fact that for the first time I have a high level of uncertainty about more than one aspect of my life. I am most certainly one of those people that likes to plan out my next move and I have been planning out the next step to take for so many years that it feels strange to not be able to know what will come next to an extent. Sure, I can prepare and try and plan as best I can, but there is still a level of unknown that is both exciting and unsettling all at once. It seems silly to say this almost because I am sure many people feel this way or have felt this way and every time I speak up about it the phrase "it will all work out" in one form or another comes up. Things do work themselves out, but the end result is not a guaranteed happy ending or the one you expected. Spontaneity has never been my strong suit, but for the next few months I think I might have to be a little more prepared to just let things happen as they do without hoping to control certain circumstances. 

And just because....

I lost my latest pair of sunglasses in a mad dash through security leaving New York in a rush to catch my flight to Seattle. I am obsessed with having sunglasses (style wise and I have sensitive eyes). I just got my first pay check in a LONG  while given my state of unemployment there for a while. I celebrated by replacing my sunglasses with these new ones:
