…when the world falls in love

…when we all hibernate to study

…when Kelly and I each have 3 coats and 2 purses hanging on the coat hook….and they never stay

I’ll pick the actual song lyric (#1) because it’s prettiest.  But the other two are really quite true.

Tomorrow I hope to be back to posting more regularly, and to writing thoughtful posts as well.  But, I have a final I hope to be taking in a few hours (it’s online) and another tomorrow morning (then I’m DONE!!!) – so I should spend my time studying.

But for a quick update….Friday night was the Navs Christmas ball.  It was very, very fun, and notable because I did my own hair and makeup.  And I’m not particularly talented at either, but I borrowed about 7 different eyeshadow colors from my roomie and I managed to do this very pretty curly updo thingie in my hair.  (Which is also notable because my hair is ruler-straight.  I could rival anyone for Curling Iron Immunity).  Unfortunately, I was not smart enough to get a picture of the back or side, which was of course the prettiest part.  Sigh.

I also kept my heels on the entire night (applause, please).  Actually, I always do because I hate dancing in stockings.  But I even brought flats this time, just in case.  Although by the time my arches started really protesting there was about a half an hour left, and no way my pride was going to let me change shoes with half an hour left.

So that was quite fun. And this is the sophomore girls picture:

The theme was black and white, which explains why we’re all in black and white.  Of course, I opted to go with a white dress with black trim instead of mostly black – mostly because I already had that dress (fine, my classy sister already had that dress and I stole it), and also because with my amazingly pale complexion – black just doesn’t look good on me.  Which is unfortunate, considering the plethora of adorable Little Black Dresses That Don’t Come In Any Other Colors.


And this picture is awful quality, but I thought you’d like to know that I can still be my crazy self even when I’m all dressed up.

Now, I’m off to more finals studying!  I seriously can’t believe I’ll be done with this semester in one day.  Yikes!  And yay!
