initiation and art history

currently listening to: vampire weekend [contra] (why am i even listing this? i'm clearly obsessed).

so yesterday's post felt a little vague - when the reality is that i was sort of having a mini "what am i doing with my life?" meltdown. for some reason i neglected to mention that i was rejected from two internships that i applied for in the last 48 hours, which is tough. but publicly denying it doesn't make the truth go away. which is fine. i still have two more interviews lined up, and i'm looking forward to whatever lies ahead for me. phew. it feels good to get that off of my chest.

besides being a bit bummed out and feeling sorry for myself yesterday, i took a gigantic "sad-person" nap, and woke up to texts asking if i wanted to see shutter island for cheap/free popcorn night at the galesburg theater. and guess what? it was amazing. i may have missed lost, but i got a solid two hours of me and leo time, which is basically the best pick-me-up the world can offer.

it's i-week for kappa, which basically means that we have initiation this saturday (bright and early 7 am!!). it's the first initiation we're holding in our house and we're all very nervous and very pumped. it should be amazing (and that's all i can share). the first wednesday of every month is "pin-dress", i.e. business casual dress + wearing the kappa badge. since the studio was full of students after my painting class, i decided to conduct my photoshoot in the round room (named for its shape obviously). as an art history major, this room holds a special place in my heart since it's where all of the slide lectures are held. i'm definitely going to miss this place when i gr*d**t*. i'm not allowed to say "the g word" around kappas, it's pretty much a sin. so there you have it. pin dress, kappa, and yay today felt like spring for sure!

  1. do they still sell that AA skirt? i LOOOOVE it. plus photos in the round room?!?!?!?!! LOVE.

  2. I feel like there's a lot of pressure on because this is the first time I've commented: prepare for disappointment.
    You look fabulous, gorgeous, like a model on the runway on that table.
    And don't worry about the no's, think about all the yes's that are in your future.
    And think about how great Knox has been, and how it will only lead to the next happy chapter.
    I love you pookie.

  3. I am sorry about the internships, but I wish you the best of luck with the upcoming interviews

  4. You've got panache. Seriously.

    Sorry to hear about the internships. Everything will work out for the best!

  5. ohmygod!! i am so jealous of your round room photo shoot. such a special place, indeed.

    annd, i've been there with the declines from internships. don't worry about it - everything will work out for the best and you'll get the right "yes" for you.

    also, i'd be happy to talk art history internships/grad school if you ever want to!

  6. You look so cute Sandy! I love that jacket.
