Loser Face

The following paragraph is Maggie wallowing in self pity. Feel free to skip and proceed to the pictures.

Have you ever noticed that no matter how wonderful of a day you have, it’s what happens at the very end of the day that determines your outlook on it? Maybe it’s just me. I spent my morning putting up a fiber arts installation with some classmates and got to leave class early, my later class was cancelled so I got the whole afternoon off, I ordered a bunch of stuff I’ve been needing to buy for a while (fun stuff), I went on a little shopping trip (Michael’s!) with a friend and ate some homemade black raspberry ice cream in a cinnamon waffle cone (yuuuuuum), and I watched Doctor Who. Sounds great, right? Well, I found out tonight that I was not the winner in a logo competition I entered. Big deal, I know. I just got third place in an INTERNATIONAL competition last week; I have no reason to complain. But I have a few weaknesses: I’m overly ambitious, I’m competitive when it comes to art/design, and I sometimes tend to have too much confidence in myself (in certain areas, like art). In too high concentrations, these things hurt because they mean I’m also disappointed too easily. I keep telling myself “stop it! get over it! NOT a big deal!” but yes, I’m disappointed. I have my reasons for being so bent on winning this competition, but still…someone train me to not let petty things like this bother me!

On a happier note, I’m going to beautiful Ireland this summer with one of my best friends! Beyond excited!

Now here’s what you’re really here for: my outfit.

sweater: secondhand Gap; jacket: secondhand Abercrombie; jeans: secondhand Gap; scarf: purchased in Scotland; shoes: Toms; earrings: secondhand

    I love your face in picture #4 :)

    And I have two words for you that will solve all your problems. Feel free to write them down, though I don’t think you’ll have to. Ready?

    STOP IT.
