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..

After anyone pounds out an essay the first thing they want to do is write more?

Right?

Well, actually in my case yeah.. but that’s because it’s typing for random people about stuff I like. Not, woman’s suffrage.

Although I like being about to vote.

And I… *insert foot in mouth here*

What the hell just came on my spotify?

Hold on.

I know this barely counts as normal blogging, because I’m pretty much talking to myself.. but it’s been a fairly sheltered sunday. Library and dorm with a few friends. I need to talk.

Btw the song on spotify? Get the party started by Pink. Didn’t really go with Norah Jones that well.. thats all.

My roomate went home for the weekend. It’s an odd concept, living by “myself” for 2 days. My 2 days were consumed with movies and madness.

It was great.

Ugh. Ya know what I don’t like about watches?

When typing they get in the way.. but I really want a new watch. A dark brown one from Fossil, in honor of fall.

BUT NO I WILL HOLD STRONG.

The proper time to purchase would have been labor day weekend at the outlets after all, the watches were b1g1 50%. Which is huge.

But as you dedicated readers know, I have kate and kate is all I neeeeeeed.

Maybe.

*clicks on kate spade website*

It really sucks not having a job guys.
