The last few weeks, have been stressful to say the least, and I've been the furthest thing from grace under fire. Yesterday was just too much I was a sensitive sally all day. A low point: sitting on a wet park bench eating a bag of french fries, waiting for the bus to take me to school with my paper and zine only half done, and crying. Another: standing in front of a photocopier trying to figure out how to print my zine double sided and asking the machine, "Why?" Also crying. Or when I realized I had french fry grease all over my paper and well, I didn't cry that time but it was a close call.

But there have been moments when I've been able to step out of the grind and just enjoy. Like the pictures above where I ran into my friend Adey on the first day of the Vintage Pop Sale (its still on till the 9th). I got the straw purse at the pop sale, and everything else I'm wearing was thrifted in Montreal. I have one six page to write and hand in on thursday but after everything, it will be a breeze. And then I'm done school! Forever! And it will be summer. Four months that I plan to spend relaxing. Stress? What's that? Sangrias on the patio? Oh yes, yes, this I can comprehend.

French fries and crying ALWAYS go hand in hand, but so do french fries and having fun. I really hope you've got everything figured out and you aren't still stressed. I've missed your posts!

Welcome back, Jenny! I missed you loads (in fact was just sniffing around your blog earlier today wondering what was up). You look gorgeous in all those pictures, and the past few weeks have definitely seen me dissolve into tears a few times too.

Also, the white outfit is amazing. If I had your hair and figure I'd be out buying copycat items before I finished typing this comment...
