"That's my baybayyy!!"

I got them summer blues. *cue Lana's Summertime Sadness* It may be 80 degrees outside, but I swear it's 40 inside these classrooms! It may be the South, but they sure aint conserving energy. My tuition probably doesn't even cover the electric bill. At least I get an excuse to wear my new sweaters from Target!

"I forgot I was driving."

Temperatures are dropping and my body is confused about what to wear. So today I chose a sweater with shorts. The sweater is new from Target, and my shorts are older and actually used to be a romper, but I cut the top part off. My little fox necklace is one of my old favorites. It is turning colors from wearing it so much, but I still love it! 


DIABY is an acronym for Do It All By Yourself. That is what this site is mostly about, inspiring you to create things all on your own. Most would say I am decently creative, but you can be the judge of that. I am a student in progress of becoming a teacher, so I might include neat lesson plans every now and then. I dabble in photography and painting and sewing and drawing. Don't hold your breathe, I only claim to be decent at all the above. Hold tight for examples of what I create when I am bored at home. 

Right now I am really into decorations and home decor, so my next post will be some things I have done around the house. Spoiler** Halloween is right around the corner, so get ready for fall themes!! (YAY!!!)

Inside a plastic storage bin with three drawers you will find it crammed full of everything from skater skirts to rainbow overalls. And above this chaotic but organized scene is hangers with countless cardigans and dresses piled on. I have at least four dresses per hanger. #apartmentliving #sharingacloset. At one end right before the masses of cardigans begin, I have one hanger that holds my work uniform: black pants, a vest, a white button up, a cummerbund, and a bow tie. I cater to the rich. 

But when I am not working I get to play with the fun fabrics that fill my half of the closet that I share with my girlfriend. Here's a look into my wardrobe that I love oh so much, even if it doesn't lead to Narnia.

Her name is...

I like lists. And my favorite kind of lists are Bucket Lists. Today my girlfriend and I started our own. It is a list of silly and adventurous things we both want to do before March. For the sake of not posting in many months, I will rewind the clock.

August: I traveled alone for the first time, destination: Washington D.C. I was in New England for 4 days where I stayed in Baltimore and explored Philly and D.C. I missed my flight and stayed an extra day.

Then I started back school.

September: School continued on, and my love life was still nada (almost two years now.) But something new was happening, but I could not quite put my finger on it. I was mad all the time and frustrated, maybe it was just the three month long period I had from birth control, I dunno, but it sucked hardcore.

Then I kissed a girl. And I liked it. (Katy Perry moment) I really liked it. And I really liked her.

October: On October 2nd I turned 21. Woop woop! The same lovely lady that I kissed took me out for a night on the town. I threw up and even missed my flight to Seattle despite this wonderful girl waking up at 4am to cook me breakfast and made coffee and tried her hardest to get me moving, but it wasn't happening.

I ended up spending the day in Atlanta with a group of amazing Couchsurfers at a beerfest and Flux Night. But I missed this girl a whole lot.

On October 26th, we were both hosting a Pumpkin Party at her house. On October 26th she carved a pumpkin that said "Be My Girlfriend" and I said YES!

On Halloween we were Batman and Catwoman one day, and Daisy and Jay another. Twas a blast!

November: So now in November, this girl is a new and lovely part of my life. Her name is Beth.
