✿ You know when you write something in your planner for weeks & weeks in advance and it seems like it’s in forever and that day won’t arrive any time soon until it creeps up on you and you’re left thinking “WHERE did time go?”? Yeah, that’s me right now. School starts today and I’m feeling certain kinds of way about it. Part of me is excited about this new semester; all the new information I’ll be learning, the cute notebooks I’ll be filling with valuable knowledge (and doodles), and…and well that’s basically it. The other part of me is saying NO THANKS; making me want to stick out my tongue, stomp my feet, and exclaim “I’m not ready!! Give me another week!”. This semester I’m practically a hermit though, with mostly online classes and one on campus. Which is GREAT! I’m still trying to change my one campus class to an online one, so fingers & toes crossed that I can! (Drop/Add week don’t fail me now..)
- Adorable Kissy Total Solar Eclipse Sun & Moon from ThinkGeek
✿ Coincidentally, the Solar Eclipse happens to fall today as well! It’s the first since 1918 that we’ll be seeing the total solar eclipse travel across America! In Miami, this is what we’ll be seeing:
If you’re interested to see what it’ll look like in your neck of the woods, check it out here!
Unfortunately, I don’t have any plans to watch it since I’ll be working. I know we’ve all probably have heard to not stare at the eclipse with naked eyes because it can cause real serious damage to them…and well, it’s true! According to NASA, “The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as ‘eclipse glasses.'” If you, for some dumb reason, decide to look at the sun with your naked eye during the eclipse, you can burn your retina. This means that you’ll damage the images your brain can view. If this does happen, you’ll cause temporary or permanent vision impairment, and could possibly become blind. So, if you’re reading this before the eclipse happens, don’t do it! Don’t stare at it with unprotected eyes! IF you did in fact stare at it with out any protection, then you won’t be able to read this in the first place…so, sorry dude.
✿ So anywho, today I decided to wear my NASA shirt because it’s just soooo apropos, no? And paired it with my Star Wars “Rey Rebel Bag”. It kinda has that retro airlines feel to it, which I absolutely adore. Story behind the bag: I went to BoxLunch (the one in International Mall in Miami, FL) on a random Tuesday a couple of weeks ago, and they were having a Buy 1, Get 2 Free clearance sale. YES. THAT’S RIGHT. Buy one, get TWO FREE. So, ofcourse I hopped on that clearance train and snagged this and another bag that is similar, except that it says Pokémon Trainer (which I will be posting about later on!). It’s pretty spacious (my camera fits in it if I want the boxy look), and perfect for school notebooks and misc supplies.
And it’s got a little chain with a BB-8 and the word Scavenger attached to it. Pretty adorbs, no?
✿ Are you heading back to school today, too? If so, do you like to dress up (you know how important first impressions are), or do you go for a more relaxed look? And if you’re an FIU student, like me, and spot me on campus, feel free to say hi! ◕ᴗ◕✿
P.S. My hair is kinda blue now.
