sparklers only burn for so long

it's been about 2 weeks into second semester, and life is alright! i love not worrying about turning college apps, but i do wish i got to hear back from colleges sooner! i can't wait til the end of march/early april. seems like such a long wayz a way. and to think that two months after i hear from colleges, i'll be graduating-i'll have reached the end of my high school career. wow. well, i'll save that talk for when i actually get there.

for now, i've been enjoying reading frankenstein! i actually love the readings that we've been reading in ap english this year. i only wish i had more time to read some of the works. i'm not sure if my english teacher reads my blog--probably doesn't but i do wonder, because i'm following her blog, and apparently someone visits my blog every other day through her blog...anyway--but i have to admit, i didn't even read hamlet. and now we're going to come back to it in a few weeks. egad! haha. we also read heart of darkness, but i was like 'what the asdgjkl;a?!' when i read it because i didn't have enough time to actually read it. it seems like a book i'd actually really love though. so yay for reading :D

and finally, an outfit post! i have about 4 outfits waited to be posted (i even have one from like november that was actually taken in different scenery, but who knows when i'll post that..)

hope you like it! i had a lot of fun with this outfit and with the photos. :]

PS Check out Kenzie's Blog Love post! I got to be featured there! Kenzie's blog is also definitely worth checking out! I love her ouftits, her stories and they way she edits them pics. :)
I'm currently working on a 'showcasing other bloggers' thing too, so stay tuned brothas. :]

shirt - armani exchange; skirt - store in south korea; tights - jcrew
(i also wore one of my fav pairs of shoes; they're dark gray flats with colorful bead-like adornments but i didn't get a pic of that! actually, most of my outfit posts don't show my shoes because well, i don't really like my mom knowing i blog, and we don't wear shoes inside the house, so.. that's kind of that :// i wish i had a pic to show you though!.. oh wait! actually here's a pic from an old post! wow that was a big tangent...)

I know what you mean about sparklers. I try to make the memory last longer by putting them in the freezer, but usually that doesn't even work.
