Classing it up in class...

I took a couple of classes during the spring (while working full-time), and recently got a letter telling me I had made the dean's list... :)

Here's an example of what I might have worn to class on days when class was in the evenings after work (I was more casual for Saturday classes, ie. polo shirt, instead of dress shirt):

There is no possible excuse for anyone who has any self-respect to show up wearing pajamas or lousy t-shirts + ripped jeans... or sweatpants for that matter. People of good taste, let's unite and show how to do it right! :)

P.S.: It needn't be pricey... just in good taste--not hard if you try. Many people spend more than I do for things that look terrible. Using good taste is the best value... I don't need to buy two wardrobes for work and being comfortable, they run together for me... why should I need to be uncomfortable at work or look terrible when I'm enjoying myself?

P.P.S.: I'm allowed to be opinionated on my own blog. I'm not suggesting people do not have a right to dress as they see fit. I however challenge the idea that dressing without concern should be acceptable to society.

The Hope Diamond: It's sparkly...

I went to Washington DC today on a whim, because my work was closed due to AC failure today... and I thought I'd go and see the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, because I'd never really been farther than the lobby. After looking around a bit, I realized the Hope Diamond was here... so I went over and took a few pictures and a video... which has the relevant comment, "it's sparkly" by some random girl standing next to me... :D

So busy!

I have been running around lately and so distracted that I have forgotten to write here! Here are a few happy pictures from what I've been up to:

Making panoramas of things like pretty sunsets...

...and the new transportation center that's near my work...

Sewing a little, I decreased the size of a tablecloth here... this is hopefully the forerunner of a number of other upcoming projects, if I ever get around to them!

Spending time in DC with Victoria...

Swing Dancing at Glen Echo Park... :D :D :D

Making crepes!

Making all sorts of funny faces with someone I love to spend time with... (can you guess who?)

(that would be more funny faces)

And much, much, more!

Hopefully soon I'll have time to write up some more reviews about elegant happy things like Northanger Abbey, style, or other generally interesting/exciting material... but I thought I'd at least let everyone know that I haven't completely dropped off the face of the earth, lol!
