Day late, dollar short

Yesterday This week has been rough.  Between a minor family emergency, finals, not getting the job I was really hoping to get and just general holiday anxieties, it took me a long, long time to get out of bed yesterday.  I don't talk about it much, but I've been working through anxiety and depression for most of my life and when it rains, well, it pours.

I was feeling ugly and useless and wanted to quit the challenge.  I hated all of my clothes and knew that I wouldn't feel good in anything I put on.  Nevertheless, my endlessly patient and supportive boyfriend gave me the kick in the butt I needed.  I got dressed, we went on a walk, and had ourselves a date.
I promise I'm feeling good in this picture! It was late, a long day, and taking the picture was an afterthought.


This is basically my uniform: a dress and a vest (or cardigan).  Easy and put together.  The best idea when you're feeling uncreative.  And no! Your eyes aren't fooling you.  Despite a week of temperatures in the 40s, yesterday was warm enough to go bare-legged here in Central Texas, even at 11pm, when we got home from our date.

I missed a day of posting, but I'll get around to it.  All of my final papers are due on Monday, so on Tuesday I'll be an uberproductive posting machine.

Happy weekend!
