It’s got to that point now where term is still going on full strength (or more!) and I’m just fed up of it and want to get home for Christmas!! I’ve now been set all my assignments for my subjects and I really wanted to get started on them before I left, but now I just don’t have the time! I’m going to have to go to the library and try to get hold of some books for my human dissection essay. I have a couple but they’re not directly about the subject I decided on.

Again this is a late outfit post! It’s from yesterday. Although this outfit is actually pretty boring as my clothes go, I actually really liked it =) Ben likes it when I wear jeans, so even though they’re not my favourite things to wear, actually they’re probably my least favourite (!), I wear them occasionally. Because I only wear them every so often I think that makes them seem more interesting because it’s different to how I usually dress. I’ve had people say to me, several times, when they see me in jeans, “Oh Sian, you look normal!”

Normal is not something I generally do, so when I am apparently “normal” it becomes abnormal for me, if that makes any sense!! Well anyway, I never wanted to be normal! On Saturday night when we were at the Murder Mystery party, Ben said something to me about how not normal I am, and my friend Charley had a rant at him about how I wouldn’t have my “Sianness” if I was normal and that would be boring!

You may have noticed that I have a different bag at the moment… I am really upset because my beautiful satchel has broken =( I have no idea what happened to it too! It was on the back seat of the car and I went to move it to the boot and discovered that the strap had completely come off, the studs holding on it had just torn through the leather. Ben thought maybe it got caught in the door or something, but I just have no idea. Luckily my aunty works with leather, so hopefully she’ll be able to fix it for me. But at the moment I’m using this old bag that I got from the shop I mentioned in my post yesterday that closed down in York.
I was very happy yesterday at the lack of snow again because it meant that I could wear normal shoes, and I got to wear my little heels =) I really like these, they seem to go with everything, and they’re not too high to look out of place, although I still got those funny looks. Actually, when I was on the bus, as I stood up to get off at my stop, two boys (possibly 17 or 18) stared at me as I walked past then one turned to the other and muttered, completely within my earshot, “Mate, she’s well fit.” I was like, ooookkk, at least wait till I’m off the bus. I know that is sort of complimentary, but it does annoy me, because I quite often get shouted at from cars, whistled at and have cars beep at me when they drive past, at least a couple of times a week, and I think it’s just because I am a girl on my own, and generally wearing a skirt. I just feel that’s it’s slightly degrading and sexist. I don’t know, does it happen to any of you often? It never happens when I’m with friends, but walking home by myself, which is nearly all the time, so I feel quite vulnerable, I hate having to walk around in the dark because of this.

Just thought you’d like to see a couple of pictures from the Murder Mystery night =) I was Madame Velda, a clairvoyant to the stars, and it was set in 1950s Hollywood. Pretty much an amazing night, and we spent so much time just laughing! They were all amazing at acting, and I was just awful, but it was still so much fun!
Anyway, I’ve spent far too much time on these blog post already when I should be doing my work and tidying up, I’ve got loads of washing up to do, yuck =(

    I know what you mean about jeans, I hardly ever wear them, and when I do my colleagues at work say “oh em gee you’re wearing jeans Rachel..” but I have yet to find the perfect fit jean so I prefer tights, leggings etc.
    I hope your bag can be fixed (= xx

    I barely wear jeans either. Jeans mean I can’t be bothered today.
    The reason is usually because I tend to invest my money much more in dresses and skirts and shorts so I don’t really have a lot of nice tops to wear with jeans.
    I think your heels make a big difference though. I plan to wear heels more next year- even though it probably won’t happen for a while with all the snow here in Minnesota!!
    I have such a lovely collection of shoes (60+ i think now..) but my heels only get worn at night now!!
    I think jeans and heels is a great look :]]
