Politics and Fashion


Darlings,

I want to buy evvvvverything. It’s slightly problematic, considering I don’t have a job or a budget that allows for that.  Sweaters and leggings are the usual thing here in the CHILLY gross NY winter. I heard earlier it’s going to be 65 on sunday though, how is a girl to prepare for these weather bursts?! My capris are home and I have returned almost anything light weight or sheer. I’ve decided I have a problem with deciding what to wear in the morning. it’s the overwhelming desire to wear something I haven’t worn before (but I can’t wear something completely different every day) or at least the same way I did originally. I’m running out of options on a college student budget.. Thankfully,  Christmas is right around the corner! And I put in a job application for a leadership position on campus and got an interview!! So hopefully the no job deal will end ASAP.  If I ran into a pile of cash the first things I would buy are on Ann Taylor.

The freshman 15 has blessed me with a few more curves (WAH) and I am enjoying clothing made for women a lot more than juniors lately. My newly double digit physique adore Ponte Leggings and their Modern Skinny dark wash jeans. I highly recommend them to anyone that was not given the gift of a pencil thin body. Heck, I even recommend them to the girls that were. I think these HIGH QUALITY THICK FABRIC leggings could make a girl with loads of cellulite and layers of love on her thighs (; look heavenly.

Leggings CAN be worn as pants if worn appropriately and of the proper material make up.

Tights on the other hand? *shudder* PLEASE ladies. Pass this on, like a public service announcement.. nobody should see that! A dress is supposed to cover that region that is SHEER ON TIGHTS.

Anyways, maybe thats just a Canisius College girl problem. I doubt it though.

Canisius College doesn’t have that many problems though, like next friday? I’m meeting a bunch of Communications Alum. What on opportunity ! I’m reaaaaally hoping that someone has a fashion background or job related so that I can reaffirm the reason I am in this major.  Lately journalism sounds like a plausible switch, but I’m not sure.

I submit my new schedule Saturday at 9 am (which should be illegal) along with most of the sophomores on campus and I am trying to sign up for the following classes:

Religious Studies, Philosophy, Writing about Lit, Travel Photography, Keyboard Musicianship, Comparative Govt & Politics, Math & Politics, E-commerce & Web design, Communication Theory, Mass Comm, and Writing for the Public Media.

Don’t worry, only 5 of those classes.. I just had to make a back up schedule in case I don’t get my top choices.

Speaking of Politics though, what did you all think of the election results the other night? I know I’m probably late to ask opinions, but boy did I have some… I blasted them ALL OVER TWITTER. Which is probably something I should work on, but I really didn’t care.

I’m not an Obama supporter, I was routing for Romney the other night.. A disgrace to my state I know. Whatever. I wasn’t shocked at the polls results, I didn’t vote myself.

EVEN THOUGH I’M 18.

Which I know is also probably a disgrace.

But in the ALWAYS democratic state of NY, what difference would it have really made? I know thats an awful attitude, but really what does my vote matter if I’m not in a swing state? It’s depressing if you think about it.

My Grandma, pres of League of Women’s Voters and all that Jazz would probably be incredibly depressed if I revealed to her that I didn’t vote. I’m really politically interested, though! So I might pick up a political minor.

I’m even taking a class on Woman’s suffrage right now..

I’m feeling shame.

It’s just I was moving! And I pre-registered to my old address and didn’t know where I was going to school back in April (check my blog, I swear!) so I never got an absentee ballot.

I wish I did..

Although the popular vote? That seems not to matter all that much. Romney was leading with that for a while, and the electoral college is obviously what matters so whatever.

I don’t like the electoral college personally.

And why is weed becoming legal in Colorado? And medical mary jane in Massachusetts? What’s happening to our country?

I don’t know much about drugs, but I think people should focus on more pressing issues like digging this economy out of such a hole IN OTHER WAYS. Like saving instead of spending?

I mean it works with shopping. Congress needs to realize spending money that you don’t have never ends well.

After all, I want a job. But you don’t see me opening a credit card and going hay wire no matter how tempting..

Dressing casual when you only own dresses and pearls.


Well. That was the most frustrating event of the day, after finding out my mac mail isn’t compatible with my Canisius email. Yes. You read correctly, I am writing this from my new mac :). Overall, I love it. Obviously. But there has been frustration like the email, that frustration? WordPress wouldn’t let me post blogs. I restarted and its fine, but oh my God. I would probably have returned the computer over being forbid to blog. AH. Anyways, the reason I wanted to blog today was because I’m having a tough time packing. ME. With a phenomenal wardrobe. Why? Because HALF OF IT is packed for the move and college. And because where I’m going August 5-9th isn’t exactly calling for a ball gown or anything tremendously fashion forward. It’s Kingdom Bound. The Christian Rock Music Festival held in Darien Lake, NY. It’s huge. Yet, churchy events at a theme park aren’t exactly calling for decked out attire. And I’m opposed to gym shorts when in public surrounding that many possible cute guys. What is a girl to do? I don’t own in between clothes.. I just know I have a pro-life shirt that would probably go over well at such an event. Speaking of clothes though, I do own a bunch of new stuff. And yes, I bought the Mac so you’re probably like how the hell does that work out? ALLISON YOU HAVE NO JOB. But it does. Because I had a gift card and I am impulsive. Psh, I still have $500 for college.. Like that’s gonna last me 😦 But anyways I bought a ton of jewelry; pearl choker, pearl bracelets, rose quartz bracelets, silver bangles, & gold bangles, 2 scarves, a little black dress for the fall (quarter sleeve length and synchs at the waist), a turquoise and black polka dotted top, and jeans. For sixty dollars. I adore Forever 21 for that reason. The even better thing? The clothing all fits. Believe it or not (LOL) I am not your sample size modelesque girl, so this is kind of an accomplishment in itself. I am in between sizes so it’s tough to order online. What is also hard to order online? Shoes. Riding boots to be specific. I have one foot that is an 8.5 and another thats a 9. Like what the heck is a girl to do? Order boots. Impulsively. Duh. And that’s just what I did. I went online to Steve Madden and I found the most adorable boots for the fall :). And they fit too! I’m sooo excited, that I am going to show you them. YES! I can easily show you guys my purchases now that my laptop has a webcam (welcome to the 21st century I know).

Well, I almost had a heart attack. I’m not used to such an interactive touch pad.. I went back a page and practically lost my post.

I hope this isn’t to technologically advanced a computer for yours truly.

Allison
