Shoe talk.

These remind me of the sandals Aphrodite would wear. They're very.... Grecian. I quite like that style.  And not only are the Grecian-style, I don't know of you noticed, but they have a slightly ruffled edge at that top that gives them a girly edge, which I love. They're so.... Different! I just HAD to get them. They're just perfect. Not for the weather today, though. Today is cold and rainy. But not bad, because I get to go out with friends!
I'm so sad that summer's almost over! Then I'll have to go back to school and lug to school and back three textbooks at once, which is torture. Like, people are always telling me, "Don't carry around such a heavy backpack!". They have no idea that the school is making me do it! I have to carry around on a daily basis: Two binders, a pencil bag (heavier than it should be), two or three textbooks, an agenda, and a lunch, and sometimes other things like rain boots, in case it rains when I'm coming home. I remember, in like, grade five, they sent home a notice-type thing that said: "Your child should not carry more than like, some percentage (I forget how much, like, 20 or 40 %) of their overall weight in their school bag." What I think is, "They don't have any idea that they're being total hypocrites."

Ah, summer....

Hi everyone! Sorry, I've been super-busy this past month! I've been having fun. Lots of fun. And I wish I had a pro camera that I could carry around with me and show you all the cool things I've seen!  I've taken a photography course (dark room, with film cameras and you have to develop everything yourself and it takes a long time but it's so worth it) and I took another course where you go around town with a group and do art. It's fun.  I've been in the Okanagan since last Sunday, and have been loving it!  One of my favorite outdoor things to do in the whole world is jump on the trampoline, and since I can't possibly fit one in my apartment in Vancouver, I've been jumping on it like crazy while I'm here!  So fun! I've also been baking yummy things, chillin' at the beach, screaming my head off tubing, more trampoline-jumping, LOST-watching (I'm hooked!), shopping (of course), relaxing, nail-painting, going to see Toy Story 3 (SO GOOD!!) and other things of the sort. That's why I haven't been able to go on the computer long enough to actually post something. I think when I get home, I'm going to make some jewelry. That's what I feel like doing right now, but I couldn't have fit my entire huge box of beads that I never use into my suitcase, because I wouldn't be able to fit anything else in there. I even got in touch with my inner 6-year-old again yesterday when I played Polly Pockets with my little cousin. Man, Polly Pockets and Barbies will never go out of style. (Partially because they ARE stylish).
Oh, and about the picture.... (I don't like to post posts without pictures.... I'll get some pictures of my super-old [at least 40 year old] Vogue magazine.... The stuff in there is so cool!)... It's kind of representative of my style lately... Laid back girly. I can almost not wait until school starts so I can show off my new wardrobe!  I'm so proud of it! (Don't laugh... I get excited about these kind of things...)
Happy rest of your summer! Make the most of summer 2010!
