This was supposed to be my outfit for Inspiration Monday at Two Birds. Yes, meaning this is the outfit I was inspired by. And I was. But I changed it up quite a bit. Or not at all. Nutso leopard harem pants are totally the same thing as skinny denim. Totally.

I had a horrible, awful week last week, and honestly, things aren't improving THAT much. I spent most of last week working on a final paper for my class. I'm pretty sure I spent at least 20 hours on it, not including the 3 hours I spent throwing a tantrum because it was so bad (I'm serious). Then, I FINALLY finished it and thus finished all work for the class, so I decided to look into the syllabi and stuff I've been getting in my email regarding a week-long session I'm scheduled to attend in June, which includes two 3-credit grad classes. The class assignments and requirements are crazy, and let's just say I'm at a huge disadvantage because A) I'm young (most students seem to be AT LEAST in their 30s), B) I'm inexperienced, and C) I'm not currently working in the field in which I'm studying. So, needless to say, it's quite hard to complete an assignment about your department when you don't actually have a department. Basically, not only is it impossible for me to do the assignment, even if I could, I don't think I'd get much out of it. I'm currently discussing the issue with my advisor and hopefully I can maybe lighten my course load to make it more bearable. And then I'll actually blog on a regular basis again, too. Maybe.

  1. We need to get together and bitch about our respective school issues. I was having trouble with one of my classes, too. School drama is something I can live without. Eff you, grad school.

    P.S. Harem pants? You've got swag.

  2. your problems are way bigger than mine! and as for your outfit. who cares if you changed it up.. you were inspired, and it works! these pants are beyond fabulous and i want a pair for myself. you've inspired me to find a pair! i hope you start feeling better soon. your advisor better see the intelligence of your argument!

  3. Can I just say that you are fabulous? Cause you are and I have nothing but respect for those who do the grad school thing because I was wayyyyyy too chickenshit to do it myself. So there you go. Glad you are working with your advisor and hope you can figure out something to make it easier.

    NOW, let's talk about these pants - who cares if they aren't skinny denim, they are way cooler! They look fantastic on you. And the shirt works so well with them. Overall a great outfit!!

    I hope this week is better for you, I really do!

  18. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve had such a sucky week at school! Hopefully your advisor is reasonable and allows you to do the assignment differently because from the way you’ve described it, it does sound pretty impossible. Lots of hugs and hoping that things look up for you soon :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  19. that does sound unfortunate, I hope things work out.
    But I'm loving those leopard pants, and gorgeous sandals.
