Reading & Reflection

It certainly has been quite a while since I last posted.

I finished my second year of university recently. It has been quite an eye opening experience, coming to the realization that you’re halfway through, and that much closer to making a living in the “real world.”

I will be departing for London in August, and cannot wait to see what this new adventure holds for me.

I’m determined to write more this summer, and get back into this passion of mine.

Another determination of mine is to read a lot of literature this summer.

I’ve recently read , I’ll Never Be French (no matter what I do), a fantastic memoir about an American man who moves to Brittany, and the cultural barriers he faces on a daily basis.

In excitement of my trip to England, I’ve read the literary classics Pride and Prejudice, and Emma by, as you know, the one and only Jane Austen.

I’ve vowed to read all of her works this summer, and to also check out other 17th and 18th Century English classics.

Turning over to music, I’ve been really into the band Rose’s Pawn Shop recently. Out of California, I saw them play several times at FloydFest over the years. My mother made an acquaintance with the lead singer, Paul.

They have a folksy Indie feel, which I love.

Shopping Haul Part 3: A Classic Beatles Shirt

Happy Friday everyone! To continue on with my latest shopping haul from Forever 21, I thought I would post one of my most favorite finds yet: the perfect Beatles T-Shirt with a vintage feel. I don’t know about you, but I think that EVERYONE should have a Beatles shirt in their closet. I’ve been very lucky; I haven’t met a single person yet who doesn’t like the Beatles. Not to throw off on all of you who may not like the Beatles, but they’re such an amazing cultural icon even today. Personally, George Harrison was my favorite. I yearn for my semester abroad when I can venture to Abbey Road and capture that iconic walk on my own.

I’ve been looking for a classic Beatles shirt for a long time now, and I couldn’t believe my luck when I found the PERFECT one for me in Forever 21. It’s fitted, yet slouchy in all the right places, and looks so laid back. I’m thinking that I could wear it in many different ways. I might pair it with a pair of denim shorts and wayfarer sunglasses and top it off, (literally!) with a fedora for an urban laid back vibe. Or I might pair it with my trusty black jeggings, flats, and cardigan for a more polished look.

As I will keep saying over and over again, I LOVE THE BEATLES!!! My personal favorite Beatles tune is “In My Life.” What’s your favorite Beatles song?!?
