I’m Back! And Graduated. And Sad.

Sorry for the long…long, long absence. You see, I graduated on Saturday so I’ve spent every free moment of the past month with friends because we are all going our separate ways and I don’t know when I’ll see them again or how often I’ll see them, and I love them all dearly. *tear* And SO many of them are new friends and I’m not quite satisfied with the short semester I’ve spent with them. I might be depressed for a while about this whole situation. I’d like to just reverse time and relive the past semester (minus the schoolwork and classes part). Luckily, I still get to be a student for the next month because I have one more class I have to take to get my diploma, but unfortunately most of my friends won’t be there. SOOOOO SAD!!! Have I mentioned how sad I am? Very. Sad. *tear #2*

So here’s what I wore today. I’m on an olive kick. I’ve bought two pairs of olive pants recently and I bought a pair of olive toms today (as much as I hate that Toms have become trendy, I can’t resist their comfort and simplicity). I also really like this mint color paired with the olive. PLUS, bonus – I made my sister pose for pictures today too. That pink belt is hot…pink.

And then we saw some deer in the neighbor’s yard…

My outfit – tee: secondhand Merona; pants: secondhand Loft; shoes: secondhand Bandolino; belt: Target

I think tomorrow I’ll do a post about my graduation. Remember that dress I posted about? Well, I gave in – I got it for $40 and considering it’s $140 original price tag, I’d say it was a pretty good deal!

    Maggie J, congratulations!!!! I literally had no idea we were ‘neighbors’ – you see, I previously lived in Harrisonburg (97-late 2002) and I loved the Shenandoah Valley so much, I just moved back this past winter (Elkton)! In fact, I was just talking to someone today about how I knew I had business to take care of in H-burg but there was no way! I was going on Saturday!!! because i’ve lived through other graduations – now I know that one of those glowing grads was Maggie J :) Best of success to you, my friend!!!

      Cool! I love the area – it’s so beautiful! I’m sad to be leaving, but hopefully I’ll get to visit some. I still have quite a few friends who haven’t graduated yet.

      My friends and I definitely plan on keeping in touch! Graduating just makes it a little more of a challenge than it’s been for the past 4 years :)
