Ride 'em

fringeboots01

I looked up at the moon last night and noticed that it's almost full. In my mind I've been calling it the Big-O moon, the Obama moon, for no better reason than it was on the wax when we all voted just last week. Isn't it strange that it's been a week already? People have been busy in the past week, very busy. It feels kind of good to laugh, even if it's at my own nutjob of a Georgia senator.

It feels good to laugh because I've been rethinking this whole graduate school thing. I know I'm close and all...looking at a graduation date of Dec. 09, but I'm trying to figure out whether or not I care as much about scholarship as I care about...say...fashion on SL. Should I take a serious stab at fashion writing, inspired by my work here? Should that be what I do after graduate school? To be entirely honest, I am too much of a slacker to do something for my occupation that I don't care about with a slightly obsessive passion.

I don't know yet. I know that I'm signed on for another year of hard work, but I'm not certain I care about becoming a research professor any more. O HI, yes, I have yet to talk about my clothing.

Lessee. This outfit was inspired by the new boots from J's -- I mentioned the other day that J's has a few new releases in the shop. One is this pair, perfectly constructed western boots. These boots go so well with ~silentsparrow's~ new shirt that I had to slip it on, and then I realized I also had this jacket from Kurotsubaki hanging around. There's a deer on it. Surely the world needs more clothing with deer. ...Yes, I'm totally slap-happy today. Have a good Obama moon, everyone, hehe.

You need a lasso rope trick thingy! Those are great boots and the outfit is totally lovely.

If you get the opportunity to apply your writing and love of SL fashion: absolutely go for it! To do something without that passion is, well, hard. No harm to hedge your bets and have the experience of what education offers either. Whatever decision much luck and success for what you follow!
