Denver dreaming

headband: Forever 21 | tank top & cardigan: Target | belt: Charlotte Russe | skirt: vintage | tights: ModCloth | boots: Shi

The odds are pretty good that I will look back on this collage and think it was a terrible idea...but part of me thinks it's kind of fun! Am I crazy? I really wanted to do an outfit post, but my camera is at home (and the battery is terrible anyway) and I'm going to be on campus all day. What to do? A collage of crappy webcam pictures, apparently. Kind of silly, but on the other hand, it's one way for me to do an outfit post without a working camera!

In many ways, this is the polar opposite of my last outfit, but that's because Michigan is throwing a tantrum. It's been rainy, which isn't a big deal, but it's also been in the 40's again. Oh well. Spring will just be all the more welcome when it comes back.

However, at the moment I'm really wishing I was in Denver. Not because of the weather (I have no idea what it's like there right now!) but because the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference is going on there right now. I have some friends who are attending, and then I found out that my cousin is there - and then, to top it all off, I found out that some of the ModCloth writers are going to be there and host a party! Man, I wish I had known about this. Maybe it's just spring fever, but I feel like I haven't traveled anywhere interesting lately.

Besides, the conference sounds amazing. I don't know if I've mentioned this here before, but I'm a creative writing major. I firmly believe that it's the best major in the world - I get to play around with words, and learn quite a bit about myself in the process. It helps that my school has an incredible writing program. From everything I've heard, there really aren't many schools out there that have the great setup and workshop atmosphere that we have, so I feel really lucky. I have some really awesome opportunities coming up, too - in the fall, a play that I'm helping to write will be up on our school's stage in the fall! It's been so fun being a part of the process and it will be great to see how it turns out.

Well, it's back to homework for me. I've tricked myself into thinking I don't have a lot left to do, but my end-of-the-semester to-do list is actually ridiculously long...we'll see how this goes!
