Channeling the queen of quirk, Jess of New Girl. I don't accessorize much (pink stripes and corduroy are all I need in life anyway) but my Best Coast tote and adorable Persunmall cat ears ring are exceptions. I've blogged about Zooey and her style before (and featured on Teen Vogue for a Deschanel-inspired outfit!) but I'll say it all again: I love being girly. I have faced some stereotyping about my personality and intelligence recently based on how I dress, which is absolutely absurd. Do these people not know of the many talented, academic, and innovative women out there who happen to like skirts? It's them I feel sorry for- with such narrow minds, they are stuck with the belief that masculinity equals intelligence.

Life is progressing swimmingly; in the literal sense, I have swim team practice every day for two hours. And school is okay, especially as it's still sunny enough to sit outside for lunch which makes me happy. Just taking a small break from all the stress that building contains makes a difference. I adore my history teacher (although nothing tops my AP European instructor last year) My chemistry teacher is insane and I've learned more about the economy and his opinion on Syria than anything else. But I'll take stories over science!
