stay home

It's 12 degrees out and windy. If you think I'm going to go take outfit photos in that, then you clearly overestimate my dedication to this blog. Instead, I stayed in  all day and stalked my cat's favourite sleeping spots, found a good place to perch in the sun, and stuck the camera in my dog's face, like he hates. You cannot beat Minnesota winter days spent indoors, especially when they're spent with cuddly pups (however, my cat will hardly even let me in the same room as him).





















That melancholia from last week still hasn't left me. I'm starting to think it's just winter and the immobilisation that it causes. It has nothing to do with light or dark, but rather frigidness, loneliness, isolation in the cold. I've been spending a lot of my time checking my class schedule, searching for campus student groups to join, brainstorming my own, searching for internships, dreaming about a new job...anything to get some movement into this frozen, icy existance. Minnesota winters are usually best spent indoors, but it sure can get lonesome.

Well when I am in MN I'll bring you swiss miss packets and we can drink hot chocolate and watch netflix wearing fun beanies.

Winter always puts me in the worst of moods, but for some reason when the snow is out and the sun shines I feel amazing. The you step outside. COLD.

LONESOME WHY THAT'S WHAT THE INTERNET IS FOR. But really, I get it. I spent sunday staring at my computer screen all day, desperately waiting for anyone to come online and talk to me. Lonely. Cold. Ugh. Cute photos, though! I'm kind of jealous that you manage to make your indoor outfit photos still look good!

There's definitely something melancholy about January, once all the festivities are done. I can't wait until it's spring and I actually feel like going outside again!
