So- It's already Fall in Chicago... I almost can't believe I've been living here since the Spring. It has rained almost every day I've been here but I've learned to cover my head and haven't owned an umbrella until just the other day (thanks, Mom!). I've honestly gotten REALLY soaked in the rain while waiting on the bus, but it was kind of nice at times. In the past couple of weeks I've lost my wallet, had my bed stolen and I've had a stranger break my phone. Life in general isn't always easy but It's made me a stronger person and I've learned to survive without a phone, a bed, all my materialistic things. I've had all kinds of changes in the past month- I started a new job at Pump Room, moved into my own studio apartment and moved all my stuff from Taylorville and I've had invisalign braces now for 10 weeks! Now that I have all of my boxes from Taylorville that are full of my stuff- I feel really closed in by the amount of things I own... after living without it for the past year- it really made me realize how independent I've become of materialistic objects I used to fear losing so much. It's a great change and another chance at life I feel... Constant change is what keeps me feeling young and alive and fresh. I also bought this new wig the other day because I needed even more change. Haha! Do you like it? ♥
My friend Elliott gave me this fabulous kimono which was owned by his grandmother last weekend... I am in love with it and this is the second time I've worn it.
