You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant (excepting Alice)

Want to know where I am right now? In my bed, doing pretty much nothing, since my poor ol' back blocked or something. I can barely bend at all and it's so painful. It hurts so much just walking around the house. I blame it on my heavy backpack. Theoretically, you're not supposed to carry a bag that's heavier than 10% of you weight. I'm barely 110 pounds, which means that my healthy maximum would be 11 pounds. On school days, my usual load can add up to nearly 25 pounds! Ouch. No wonder why I have all sorts of trouble with my back. I even developed a lordosis over the last few years (thanks to me PE teacher for making me notice). Oh, well. Enough with all the complaining. Let's just hope it stops hurting by tomorrow morning. I work a nine hours shift at the restaurant and I'll be standing up all day, frequently bending to reach down for wine, juice, milk and other stuff in the fridge. GAHHH I WANT A BACK RUB. Unfortunately, Gab isn't home now so I'll just rely on my good friend Myoflex. I'm only 19 and already an old lady with aching bones and muscles. Duh.

I'm glad I have a few outfits to show you while I'm chilling in my PJs and occasionally sneezing and coughing (hahaha it's clearly not my lucky day). Here's what I wore on hum... Wednesday? I had my first Multimedia class and it's probably the course I'm the most excited for. We'll learn the basics of web design! I really want to create my own little blog design company this summer and some pro tips will be more than useful for my project. As funny as it may sound, I can't wait to get my first assignment! Oh my. I can't believe that's me saying this. Haha. I'm definitely looking forward to my next class :)

Blouse: Zara (15$ // Skirt: H&M (35$) // Tights: Secret via Wal-Mart (3$)

My current obsession is Arlo Guthrie's 1967 record Alice's Restaurant. The first track is a 18-minutes monologue titled Alice's Restaurant Massacree and it's just hilarious! If you enjoy this, I would recommend watching the movie version as well. Guthrie is brilliant!

Obie said he was going to put us in the cell. Said, "Kid, I'm going to put you in the cell, I want your
wallet and your belt." And I said, "Obie, I can understand you wanting my wallet so I don't have any money to spend in the cell, but what do you want my belt for?" And he said, "Kid, we don't want any hangings." I said, "Obie, did you think I was going to hang myself for littering?"
