essay shmessay

So I just found out that I have a 5 page research paper due in 2 hours. And I'm like...

I'm a senior. I'm tired of school. I'm tired of Dallas. I'm tired of research papers. In an effort to prolong my procrastination I'm going to do an OOTD post. Yes, I'm in the computer lab. Don't judge me. 

Peep the shorts. I dip-bleached them. These were on my etsy a few months ago, but never sold. I decided to keep them. It just got cold and rainy in Dallas and I'm wearing tights for the first time this season. Woo!
Also, my grandmother told me that she and her sisters used to wash their hair with rain water. I collected some yesterday and sprayed it on my hair today. I know, I sound like I've gone off the deep end but the fro is so soft! 
 Also, I saw Perks yesterday. And I really liked it. Like really. Like a lot. A. Lot. I cried into my Betty Boop sweatshirt. 

 Alright so here's the outfit details:
scarf/headwrap: thrifted
striped sweater: estate sale
dip dye shorts: thrifted/diy
tights: thrifted
bag: betsey johnson RIP
boots: walmart (dr marten imitation)
anorak: thrifted
lipstick: 1/2 revlon red & 1/2 the amp by MAC

My mom got me this tote right before Betsey Johnson closed. ): *SOBS* I heard that she's relaunching her website soon? Do you guys know anything about that?? Also below is my beloved rainbow whatever anorak that I got at Salvation Army for $6. Me and this thing are practically married. Well we're at least in the living together stage. It is so cozy and snuggly and I feel like a vagabond when I put it on. Keep on coming, rain.
I've been in a rut lately. A self imposed rut, but a rut nonetheless. I've cut off a few sources of negative energy, and I've taken on some new and very rewarding projects. School is dragging me down though and I just have to hang on until May. Stay Classy, you awesome people, you.

Love Always, 

Still in Perks mode- OKAY PEACE, LAYTA----SHANNON

*editor's note* - Shannon never wrote that research paper. She ended up going to watch the Perks of Being a Wallflower for the second day in a row with her BFF Annie. Ezra Miller's face was enough to make her forget about that silly old assignment.
