Valentine Hearts and Foggy Weather

This morning was amazing, because 1. I got a barista job after months of trying, and 2. It was just so beautiful and cloudy in Reno today, which is my favorite weather ever.  After I went to my job interview, I drove around town, celebrating with coffee, and the weather was perfect, temperate, and a little foggy.  I love foggy weather in Reno, because it gets a little cold, makes the colors of the mountains pop, and the temp feels like NoCal.

Normally, I love staying up late at night and sleeping later in the morning, but waking up early today made me see Reno in a different way.  I normally only experience the town around the busy hours of 10 a.m.-6 p.m., but today it was serene and much less stressful to drive in.  I listened to my San Fran CDs (Little Joy and Modern Vampires of the City) and drink way too much coffee (to fit the mood obviously!).  It felt so amazing to not feel anxious and actually enjoy driving for once (which is probably something I should work on anyways, but driving is so stressful!)

Talking to a tree.  No really.  That’s what I was doing in this pic.

Fulfilling my dream of being the “heart eyes” emoji.

Today, I wore one of my favorite dresses that I got in London, which just so happens to be festive for upcoming Valentine’s Day!  This dress makes me feel so cute, and I also got to prove that red heads definitely can wear red.  (Not that I necessarily ever believed we couldn’t wear red.  Take that society).  But still, it felt like an accomplishment nonetheless.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your love or friends or family or dog or by yourself or not at all.

Good things so far about the new year:

1. I ate ice cream twice today.

2. I learned what ‘fleek’ means.

3. FRIENDS IS ON NETFLIX (goodbye social life. goodbye productivity)

4. I learned the lyrics to “Breezeblocks” by Alt-J.

Things that could use some improving:

1. My grammar is progressively getting worse post by post.  (I promise I know how to use commas and periods and spelling correctly.  I’m just lazy and like to pretend I’m blogging on twitter apparently).

2. I’m housesitting for a friend and while I was getting her mail today I dropped the mail key into the bushes in front of the mail box and the key disappeared into the snow and I still have yet to find it.  Do you know how not fun it is to dig around in the snow on your hands and knees for 15 minutes in the dark before accepting defeat.  DO YOU?!

Anyways, hopefully a good magnet taped to a wooden spoon will help in the morning.

Anyways, yesterday night my brother and I went to my cousin’s house for dinner.  We arrived about 15 minutes early, so we decided to take some pictures outside before we went in.  (Mostly I just really liked my outfit).

The pictures are way too bright since it was a weird time of day, but I think they do the job.

This dress is one of my favorites, and a perfect example of how to make a summer dress into a winter outfit.  I always wear it with leggings (because it’s really short!) but add a sweater, boots, and a jacket and it becomes a winter outfit!

And it makes me very very happy!

Anyways, my brother left this morning so I’ve been a little sad today.  Living alone (or with two roommates in college) gets a little lonely so I always have a little time of mourning after somebody goes home.  But I practiced piano, watched The Help, and had a nice solo dinner so it wasn’t the worst day.  Plus, my brother will be back soon!  Another thing to add to my list of good this year!

What are some good things about your new year so far?
