To Live For a Day Like This

Groundbreaking news of the day: I am not doing summer school after all. The university I was going to attend was too frustrating to deal with, where its annoying bureaucratic procedures got too often in the way. In the end, I decidedly to make do without it, because there is so much I wanted to do outside the classroom anyway. I think I am way too burnt out to be attending class again just two days after busting a gut and two kidneys studying for end of the year exams. Moreover for the first time in my life I have white hair growing amidst the folds of my jet black hair which I would like to attribute to stress more than anything.


So I have decided to be selfish and take a mental-health holiday by saying "to hell with summer school" to do things my way. Which of course includes eating pizza with prosciutto and arugula and drinking tea. I am also half way through The Pale King and things are looking pretty good so far. It was just a great wonderful languid day to rest and not worry about deadlines or things that need my immediate attention. I won't be too much of a sloth and I will get a some kind of summer job soon...next week. Fashion posting will resume shortly, ciao.

Just got here for the first time & I must say, I love your blog! It sounds like you've been through a lot so if you want to take a break from school, you definitely should! plenty of people just get burnt out on it & come back from break feeling more motivated and refreshed! Good luck :]

I'm 23 and going grey and it started to happen a few years ago now. So you're not alone! I think sometimes when you have darker hair it can begin earlier. Also that pizza looks so good nom nom x
