Come on Over!

To my new blog, Just One Day!

As I mentioned in the previous post, I have decided to move my blog, and I figured it was time to sort of refresh/ recreate the whole thing.  So, working with my favorite quote (above) I came up with the title of Just One Day, and I think I like it so far!

Please, please, PLEASE change your RSS feed/ subscription to my new blog.. it's a lot better, I promise. 

Hope everybody had a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year!

I am becoming increasingly frustrated with blogger to the point where I can't even write a post anymore.
I figured since I'm on break, and it's been about a year from when I started blogging seriously, I might as well take this opportunity to revamp my blog and move it over to a better site.  For now, I have chosen, and I've got a preliminary blog up and working at
PLEASE go check it out and let me know what you think.
I'm open to suggestions about the new name and banner, and I would absolutely love feedback on how wordpress is working for you.  Try out the RSS feed, leave some comments, and generally please just look/ click around.  
I posted a picture-heavy post (one thing blogger was not-so-great at IMHO) for comparison.
If this receives a lot of negative feedback or is just generally not a good move, I will look for better options, so LET ME KNOW what you prefer.
There are still a lot of kinks to work out (the move is going about as well as Ross trying to pivot that damn couch) so bear with me through what I'm sure will be endless banner changes, color changes, and even name changes.  It's been a month of that already, so believe me when I say that this is the best it's been yet (otherwise I would NOT be letting you see it).
Thanks for being patient and sorry for the lack of posts while I've been attempting to figure it out.

Sunday's Stumbles

Happy clicking!

The Office is still cracking me up.
You've seen Out Of Print Clothing, right?
Working on it.
The making of awesome art.
If/when I get to this point during finals next week, please kill me.
More awesome art.
Just click this link.
What the heck is the point of a walkable roller coaster?
I want this.
Weird. People actually do this? I'm down.

Fashionable, F*ckable, Friday: Wish List.

Alright, let's get real here for a second.  I have a confession to make. I am a grinch.
I sort of hate Christmas.
And Hanukkah.  Really all of the major holidays that involve buying presents for other people in return for equally stress-inducing, awkward, or unwanted gifts.  My family has never had a lot of money, but has also never had a shortage of love OR guilt, and the holidays take on an extra layer of stress when you see all of your equally-poor relatives attempting to create "the perfect Christmas."  Add in my almost eery lack of present-giving skills, little-to-no motivation for shopping, and a hate of crowds resulting in an extreme avoidance of all stores during the month of December, and you (I) get a major migraine. 
And a healthy hatred for Christmas.

I'm probably even worse at receiving presents than I am at giving them.  I am pretty picky about things, change my mind on a minutely basis, never know what I want until the day AFTER Christmas, and have the worst poker face in the history of the world.  Believe me, you know what I think about your gift.
The worst thing to get me is clothes.
My mom especially, but many others as well, always attempt to get me "something cute" for Christmas/ Hanukkah, and usually fail. (The one exception: one year for Hanukkah, my mom and my stepdad managed to get me THE CUTEST pair of jeans.  I wore them for a year too long, and referred to them as my "Hanukkah-pants.")  
Christmas-clothes are always the wrong size (example: the year before I moved to San Diego, my mom got me 10 (TEN) pairs of $1 flip-flops. From Target. All exactly one size too small), unattractive, something I already have, or just... wrong. While I DO appreciate the effort, honestly, I'd much prefer a gift card, that way I have an excuse to go shopping AND I get to pick something out myself. =)

HOWEVER. This year, there are a few clothing items that I would be more than happy to receive for Christmas.  And since I am lacking a camera this fashionable Friday, I thought I would share them with you.  
I would LOVE to receive (in the right size, color, and type, haha):

This dress from Urban Outfitters.
This apron from Anthropologie.
This precious necklace from ModCloth.
These boots from Urban Outfitters.
This necklace I spotted at Target.
Catch-22 Shirt from Out Of Print Clothing.

What are you hoping to receive this year? Anything you're excited to give? 
Happy Friday!
