Neon lights, specs, and the decrease in wages…

Sunday, May 10, 2015

You know what I wish?  I wish that I was independently wealthy so that I wouldn't have had to take out so many darned loans to pay for undergrad.  Scrounging for hours to make money to pay them off without bleeding thousands of dollars in interest is spoiling my attempts to become a professional hedonist.  


I realized that I made more per hour as a college intern than I do with a master's degree.  WTF is up with that? 

Like, I kind of want to pass a law that says that no matter what your job is, if you have some sort of degree, you must make more than you did when you didn't have said degree.  My annual income in high school was more than it is now and I work more now than I did then.  

It simply cannot be explained.  Unless school is making me less intelligent and capable of functioning as a human being.  Which probably can't be possible because I've got these really smart specs on!  I love 'em!  They're great for covering up the giant Chanel bags under my eyes and have just the right touch of vintage to make me look like a zexy professor, but also a little bit like an undercover super hero. 

… whatever… my thoughts of being a college intern in NYC brought me back to days zipping through the subway and purposely getting lost (really not the most intelligent thing to do, amiright?) in the Big Apple and I made a playlist that makes me feel like a really happy hippie badass when I listen to it!  Check out : neon lights and tell me what you think!

    1. Thank you! I actually had a friend to take photos for me on this day! She was telling me which poses to do! I think that shot was her favourite, as well.

  5. Love the intricate top! And those glasses are too chic!! Glasses provide the perfect understated coverup for dark circles. <3

    1. That's exactly what I use them for! Always nice to have a fall back for when makeup can't do the whole job!

  6. Those eyeglasses look fantastic on you! Love the top also. A very nice look!
    Hang in there. Education always pays off! :) xoxo


  7. This is such a cute casual outfit, love it! x


  8. Unfortunately that is what the world is coming to. We need a whole lot of new governments I think. I love the crochet top. xoxoxo

    1. I will agree with you about the whole government thing. Sometimes, I wish we could just level the whole system and start fresh!

  9. Your top is so pretty, I love it

  10. I wish I earned more too but taxes go along with the earnings! Huhu. All we gotta do is work harder. *sigh*
    BTW, your crochet top is lovely!


    1. This is true! It just doesn't make sense! They tell you to get degrees so you can get a good job, but I've experienced the complete opposite! Maybe I'm just living in a parallel universe.

  11. Great look; love it! The pay situation really sucks, but I guess we just have to remember that being happy is more important. Although, having some spare cash is nice... :) xxx
