Ever since I was little I have loved to read. I devoured the Magic Tree House books, every book by Beverly Cleary and Andrew Clements that my elementary school library had, and I won Summer Reading programs at the library by having the most books done in two weeks. I just love reading.
This year I am adding a twist to my normal reading challenge. Every year I try to read at least 40 books and normally over half of these books end up being rereads.
You all loved my first “My Fashion Student Friend styles me for a week” post so much that we knew we had to do a part two!
Where last time she styled me for a week of going to class this week we wanted to create outfits based on events or themes. It was so fun to have a reason to dress up and get out of my same rotation of sweats.
Everyone has watched Wizard of Oz and knows how each of the main Oz characters has something they want to ask the wizard for. Dorothy wants to go home. The Scarecrow wants a brain, the Tin Man a heart, and the Lion some courage.
“We’re off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz”
I have always thought I was Dorothy; who doesn’t want to be the main character, but rewatching it a few weeks ago, I realized something. I am not Dorothy. I’m actually the Cowardly Lion. The character you like but don’t want to be. Who wants to be the one who is afraid of everything. But I am.
When I started college I knew that when I graduated I wanted to decorate my graduation cap. We weren’t allowed to decorate them for my high school graduation and I had always wanted to do something fun with it so I was excited it was an option for college. Fast forward three and a half years and when graduation became an online affair I decided I was going to decorate a cap early to take photos around campus before I went home. My cap had to be something fun and that went with the unknowns that come with 2020.
