Hallelujah

Good morning :)

What a week it's been!
This was the last week of the grading period and I had/have some very unfortunate grades to worry about. I think I brought them up at least a bit, but my report card still won't be too pretty. I have realized that I'm a perfectionist stuck in a slacker's body/mind. Not a good combination.

My other worry this week was Josh. He had surgery on his nose on Tuesday. Our friend Erik had broken it while they were boxing a few months ago and it made it hard for him to breathe, which, understandably drove him crazy. You couldn't tell that it was broken, so I didn't believe that it was until he told me that the doctor said that his septum was almost horizontal! He was pretty miserable after the surgery, but he's finally starting to feel better :)

And it's finally the weekend, so I really can't complain.

So I believe I had mentioned some things I got in Colorado in my last post? Here they are!

This very 60s checkered dress. It's just a tiny tiny bit too big, but I love it!
I got it from the flea market for $3!

And!!!



A 1959 Hermes 3000 typewriter! It's perfectly functional and the color of it is beautiful. I bought it from the sweetest people at the flea market for $40. 



This typewriter is amazing. It came with the instructions and brushes and everything! It's mechanical, so I can take it anywhere without having to worry about cords. It works perfectly. And for some reason it makes it so much easier for my thoughts to flow. I've gotten a bit addicted to typing on it.

My dad had said he wouldn't have paid $20 dollars for it, much less 40. Well, when we got home I looked it up on the internet and they're selling for 400+ dollars online! I think it's safe to say that I showed him.

I'm extremely happy with it.

And finally an outfit!



Details:
Black Dress: Sears ($10)
Cardigan (whose middle stripe matches my typewriter almost exactly) : Thrift Store ($3?)
Brown Straw Floppy Hat: Walmart ($10)
Brown Leather Ralph Lauren Oxfords: Thrift Store ($3!)

Happy weekend to you all!

    And hey I wasn't too good at school myself, it'll get better...i promise. There's always a light at the end of the tunnel, and now that I'm in art school things are a lot better!
