And I Am Nothing of a Builder

Hellooo! Happy September! This week has gone by faster than I expected it to. Not that it's finished yet... but, come on, first full week of school? I was preparing for the worst. Today we have our back to school rally! You know, where they attempt to stuff the full population of the school in the gym. Well, that was before they put the rallys out on the football field... Now they suck more! :D The sound/microphones/amps never seem to work so you never know what's going on. Oh, and did I mention 3/4 of the school is unspirited anyway? Yep.

Sorry - I digress. I wore this getup on Monday! This is one of my favorite, timeless summer dresses so I figured I should wear it once or twice more before it gets chilly. OH! And I thought I should mention this because I'm proud that I finally figured it out... I've removed the annoying noise from my photos! I always find there to be a lot of unwanted noise/grain, that might be from bad lighting or the way I edit the photos...but now I fixed it! So, I'm pumped, needless to say. Do you see any different in these photos? Everything is a bit smoother, so I'm happy. (maybe too smooth...hmm... well i'll play around with it...)

I think there was more I wanted to say, but of course I don't know now. Oooh well. I'll write it down on a post-it when I remember! ;) Wait! I remembered one thing. My birthday is in less than a week. My 18th birthday. Kinda scared. xx ...P.S. did you notice I wore my bright red lipstick just for you? ♥
currently listening to... The Decemberists - Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect
