that autumn haze

Today I woke up from one of those perfectly vivid dreams that you wish more than anything could be real.

And was about to hold a grudge against the day for making it end until I opened my curtain and saw the city under a thick breath of morning mist with the autumn sun blazing through.

And it made me think of this Ryan McGinley editorial and then it was impossible to be mad.

I know my blogging has been minimal lately, but for the first time ever I can put my hand on my heart and truly say that I'm putting academics first. Getting started on the university application process and my time is being spent scrawling ideas for a personal statement and pretending that aren't unread issues of Fantastic Man magazine and Vogue over in the corner.
I'm missing posting though so will be back asap!

Writing my personal statement was hell, I remember. Where are you thinking of applying? I love the little bit of prose at the top!


Gem said...

Good luck with your personal statement! They are a nuisance.
Remember to just be yourself and definitely mention the blog. They'll be super impressed! xo

Lovely editorial! One of the few times when that much image manipulation actually works out. Best of luck on the statement!

Thank you all for the lovely comments; at the risk of sounding like a gushy Miss World contestant they really made me smile!

For those of you wondering what I'm studying; I'm hoping to take American Studies. Though there are also American and Canadian Studies courses which sound interesting. Basically anything that delves into the history, literature, arts and culture gets the thumbs up from me.

Some people are surprised I'm not taking fashion as it's what I want to do career wise but I want to do something a bit more academic at uni, esp as plenty of people working in the industry don't have strict fashion degrees.

But thanks for all being cool about the lack of posting, I've got a couple of things in the works but it's all very busy! xxx
