outfit details:
cardigan- Ann Taylor

chunky necklace- from a girlfriend (purchased in Russia) it matched my card perfectly
long necklace- F21 (old)

It is unbelievable how fast we want, no expect, things these days. If I take a quiz for school I get back a grade as soon as I hit submit. I can see my score right there. Not always what I got wrong or right but a grade. That is SO fast. If I have to wait one day for an assignment I become agitated and a little stung out.

These days we expect our lattes to be waiting for us by the time we slide our credit card back into our perfect designer wallet. We demand a “less than 10 items” line at the grocery store. We begin texting if we are at stop light. We barley know what commercials are because we are streaming live. We eat more fast food because, hey, it’s “fast.” If a web page takes longer than one second to load we freak out and start behaving as if the world has ended. A lot of us, me included, walk to our next appointment while eating lunch. We would rather get our coffee at a drive-thru than make it at home. We drive over the speed limit. The list continues and continues.

I just want to know; when do you step back, take a deep breath, and enjoy the very moment you are in?

    I could not agree more. I notice myself becoming anxious about little things, til I realized it's stupid. I shouldn't be rushing or worrying about what's going to happen. So now when I feel like that I remind myself to stop and enjoy life now.

  2. It is hard. Really hard. I've learned to appreciate the time I can sit on my couch and just take it easy. I'm never just sitting though. I'm either watching TV and blogging, or listening to music while I browse for places to shop. Sometimes I want to remember what the world was like 15 years ago... but I can't. I'm too busy planning for the next 20 years ;)

    On a side note, great outfit. I love the cleverness of your dress pairing.

  6. You are so right, I definitely try to enjoy my time when I'm doing something with the family or the boyfriend...those are the times I wished time went by slower.
