Things I Did Instead of Studying

Classes have started again for this Rambler, and I’m very excited to continue my quest for knowledge and a degree that means nothing in this new world we’re living in. In high school and junior college, I was one of those students who could basically get by without studying or doing much of anything except showing up to class (my consciousness for said class may or may not have been accounted for). I had a rude awakening after transferring to SLU, since studying is sort of necessary for passing classes at that kind of institution. I had…means…of making up for my lack of motivation, and somehow I made it through with solid Cs (they get the degrees). Now, however, I have no such means and I still have yet to find much motivation. So here I am, day three into class, and instead of studying I have been busy with other things. For instance…

I wrapped Justin’s birthday present–and made the bow myself!

Happy birthday husband!

I accessorized my study binder with a bow place marker.

Why yes, I am basic.

I also spray painted some paperclips in a shade of rose gold to further accessorize the homework that will eventually be completed.

I will also add bows and rhinestones to these later.

I decided that my binder had gotten enough attention and pampering, so I pampered myself instead with a mud mask.

Elphaba?

There was also a home bikini wax attempt, but I didn’t take any pictures of that. Yes, that’s right, I’d rather give myself a bikini wax than study. And then, of course, I sat down to not write my paper, but this. Productivity is all relative folks.
