I think I might just be a little obsessed. I purchased this little beauty of a hat the other day and have found every excuse to wear it. I’d been searching for a fedora in this color for a while, but they’ve always seemed to be out my price range. It was much to might delight when I stepped into Forever21 and found this babe of a hat. It was exactly what I was searching for, a well spent $14.
On the side note, I am officially home for my winter break, My work has given me lots of hours for the Christmas season. I know I’ll be busy for the next few days, but I have plans of making my way downtown to take a spin on the ice rink. I love seeing the streets lit up with lights during the night and seeing all the christmas trees in Cathedral Square.
I can’t help but feel like Penny Lane in this big, fluffy coat. It was an impulse buy and not normally something I would buy for myself. But when I found it for only $20 at TJMaxx, I knew I had to have. It has to be the warmest thing I’ve ever owned. I was surprised with how easily it fit into the rest of my wardrobe.
As I am sure you can see, we already have snow here in Wisconsin. This weather has already dropped below 10 degrees and has made it harder to go out for photos. But I braved the wind to take some before my Thanksgiving break. I’m afraid I’ll be working most of it, and having to deal with the madness that is Black Friday. I only have one more day of classes before I can head home for the holiday.

Since switching my major last year, a question I have often been asked is; do you regret it? And if I was to answer honestly, no I don’t. When questioning my major last year, this is something I’d worry about. Would I miss it? What if I don’t like this new major? What if I change my mind again. These are thoughts that racked my mind while I tried to determine what would be the best decision for myself. Changing majors was the right decision. Last year I always felt self-conscious about my work and dreaded going to class. I was never excited or invested as some of my other classmates.
When people ask me why I switched, the answer was as simple as I wasn’t happy. A phrase I was once told, “If you have a job you love, you’ll never work another day in your life”, was my guiding light in deciding my next step. I didn’t love what I was doing, so that was my sign that I needed to change. I know what I do love doing, so I looked for something that reflected this.
Journalism. I love writing, taking photos, and reaching out to other people. I love the strong creative outlet and the process of investing your time into an assignment. Since switching, I’VE BEEN HAPPY. Each new thing I learn about writing or blogging gets me excited. I’m excited to go to all my classes and love conversing with my professors. I leave class smiling, no longer dreading my assignments. When I think back on, I can truly say that switching majors was probably one of the best decisions I ever made.
I’m sorry the long post, but it’s something I’ve had on my mind for awhile. Its something that affects my blog so that’s why I decided it was something important to share with you.
