Wow, it's February tommorow?! 1/12 of the year just flew on by without my permission. Time to make the most out of the rest of the year! As a token of appreciation, I am going to list off some of January's highlights.
I dyed my hair purple!
I did this about a week ago, and I am in love with the color! I am shocked at how well the green bleached out of my hair. This was partially inspired by not wanting to get any more St. Patrick's Day comments a few months too early.
The beginning of my seventh semester of college!
According to my credits I am still a Sophomore but after this semester I think I will qualify to be a Junior finally. I've been taking college kind of slow, but things started to pick up since I took summer classes last year and took four classes last semester. Oh and I got on the Chancellor's List for getting a 4.0 that semester! So happy!
I've been reading a lot more!
So far I've finished the comic book series Transmetropolitan, which was quite the experience! I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of fiction stories of the distant future, or who just likes rogue journalists in general (think Hunter S. Thompson). I haven't finished an actual text-only book yet, but I've been continuing to read Billions & Billions, as well as falling head first into my Astronomy textbook (and landing happily upon every page, I might add). Did you know that it would take over 3000 years to count all of the stars in just the Milky Way galaxy alone? (To put that into perspective, there are around 170 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Woah!)
Quick note about this outfit. I bought this dress when Modcloth was having their crazy 70% percent off sale earlier this month. I went a little wild and bought 3 dresses and one awesome skirt that were waaaay cheaper than they were originally. The only downside was that the sale was final and non-refundable, but luckily everything fit! (By the way, this is my first time wearing a bright orange dress, ever.) I also found a good use for the copper piece I made for Metalsmithing class. An "a-ha!" moment led to me using it as an accent on a fabric belt. I love the way it looks!
