Unemployment is soul-crushing.

I am lucky to have a family and friends who remind me that I am valuable, and a boyfriend who reminds me every day that this won't last forever. Because I forget sometimes.
(And I'm a serious joy to be around in the meantime.)

I was raised to believe that if I worked hard, I could be anything. I could do anything. If I was willing to put in the work, everything would be okay. I never seriously considered the possibility that no one would let me work. I never considered the possibility that I would have a $300,000 piece of paper that would be completely, totally, absolutely useless.

I guess I could have, oh I don't know, read something about the economy.
(What is this, a center for ants?! How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read... if they can't even fit inside the building?)

How does this affect running a style blog? Well, sometimes I don't get dressed. But mostly I do, so that's not it. Boyfriend just bought a sweet giant leaning mirror, so iPhone pics would be easy. And mom sends me Kohl's cash, so sometimes I can even shop.

The problem is that I'm just not strong enough to hang out here right now.
I can't check in with you guys in your cute clothes with your funny stories and your general awesomeness. And it's not you, it's me. Because I know that blogs are only a piece, and usually just the very best piece, of our lives. That's why they're fun.

But I don't have it in me to see everyone else's very best when a lot of me feels like the very worst.
I hope that goes away soon. I hope I can start building the life I thought I would have at 25 sometime in the year I turn 26. I hope I can come back to this place of frivolous, silly, daily amazingness.

But *cue dramatic background noises* today is not that day.

See you soon? See you later?
I hope you're all having a kickass 2014. <--- zero sarcasm. For serious. I like you guys.

Fri...dammit. | November 22-28

A weekly roundup of all my favorite things. Hey, I'm a day earlier than last week!

Bloggers Who Killed It


{Here & Now} My pug-loving Nashville soulmate rocking the dress of my dreams.

{This Time Tomorrow} ...followed immediately by the bright blue fur vest of my dreams.

{MissLeaAnne} I have never once in my life liked polka dot jeans. I have a very serious fear of polka dots and other things that make it more likely I'll get carded for buying an R-rated DVD. But with a camel sweater and leopard heels? Done.

{Penny Pincher Fashion} Possibly the snuggliest black and white outfit I've ever seen.

{Sarah's Real Life & lenore lamé} Proving that my fiscally responsible inner demons are stupid and wrong, especially where Target is concerned. I've been pining over Sarah's skirt & Jacy's sweater every time I go grocery shopping, and as I suspected, they are perfect... I'd like to suggest a body part for my anti-shopping conscious to snack on, Elan Gale-style.

The World Outside of Style Blogs
I started a new job with a start-up company that I'm really, really excited about.
Find out more here.

The internets banded together to help a little boy like his glasses. Hey mom, why didn't you love me enough to do this when I hated MY glasses?

Oh, and I finally started playing Candy Crush. #holyaddiction
