Some Things Never Change
I brought a good chunk of my finery back up here with me after winter break. Guess where it's sitting? If you guessed my closet, you'd be 100% correct. It's not that I don't want to wear it. It's not that I'm afraid of people reacting strangely. It's not that I just want to fit in and be invisible.....
St. Cloud makes me a really lazy person. I'll admit it. When it comes down to it, when I get up at 7:00 am the last thing I want to do is make sure my petticoat is fluffy enough and that my eyeliner is even. Mostly I just want to throw on some clothing, grab coffee, and survive the day. Mostly.
It doesn't help that it's been COLD AS FUCK pretty much all week. We're well below freezing here and bordering on "frostbite in seconds" territory. It kind of blows, but right now my entire focus has been on layering up to stay really really warm and not much else.
And then there's the added perk of coming down with something like a really bad cold. I get back from campus and crawl into my warmest pajamas before cozy-ing up here in front of my PC with some hot tea. I've already got homework to deal with too.
Maybe when it warms up a tad bit (like four months from now...) I'll dress up around campus again. Maybe when I get used to waking up super early and not feeling like death I'll dress up again. Maybe one day I won't let this place turn me into something I don't like.
The funny thing is, all the people I've talked to over various forums have told me that the more you dress up and stuff around people, the more they're drawn to you. Especially if you're friendly about it. They ask questions, compliment you, you become kind of notorious (but in a good way) for your style. It doesn't sound so bad, right?
I just need to get out of my rut, I suppose.
And damn you, Minnesota! Hurry up and warm up. I'm sick of winter.
