"That is one cute skirt," a girl commented on my outfit.
"Thanks," I beamed back.
While walking around campus in this, I couldn't help feeling extra pretty as the sheer, asymmetrical hemline billowed in the slight breeze. I almost felt like downright royalty, actually. Something about a long hemline that's trailing behind you can make you feel like a princess.
Oh, and isn't this bag just the cutest? I can't believe I found it at my local thrift store! Usually they're pretty lacking in the bag department, but when my eyes landed on this classic, I had to snatch it up. For $2, who could argue? I'm such a thrifter...although I'm trying to avoid the thrift store in the upcoming weeks. Those extra dollars add up!
I'm also so happy I can start wearing my sandals and open-toed shoes again! While I love my sneakers and boots, a girl's feet have got to breathe every once in a while.
Its funny, because when I was little, I went everywhere barefoot. In California, I wandered our yard with my tough, callused feet, poking behind bushes to search for the blue-bellied lizards I'd capture and keep as pets. That, or birds. Did you know I actually caught several wild birds with a simple trap I set up? I had an old cage from when we had guinea pigs, and I tied a string to the door and left it open. Inside, I placed bird feed and a curious finch or two would usually wander inside. I'd lie in hiding, just waiting for the right moment before I lightly tugged the string and the cage door would shut. Haha, I eventually had to let them go since they weren't very happy being held captive. I was one pet-obsessed little girl though!
You know, I feel like every single post in the last few days have included a thank you to you readers, but seriously, I keep having incredible reasons to add it! Once again, thank you for the encouraging words.
I've since come to peace with my decision to change my major. Right now, I know this is what I need to do. My parents have always supported everything I chose to do, and now its my turn to try and support them as best I can. Which is why I'm going to get a tech degree in dental assisting. I've done some research and its a rising field in the job market - plus, its a 2 year degree, so I'll be able to get done and start working asap.
Perhaps I'll minor in something I'm passionate about, such as writing or photography if I have time. However, I feel more purposeful with this specific degree - and secure. Who knows what the future will bring anyway. For now, I believe this is the right decision to make and I'm going to follow it through.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
