A Song is a Weapon

The month of September marks two things, 1. The begrudging return to school and 2. My favorite and most under appreciated holiday of all time; International Chocolate Day (September 13th). It's hardly fair though that the two items on the list are not of equal weight. Though my love for chocolate is seemingly infinite and unsurmountable, my dread for school far outweighs a few pieces of free candy. I spent all of last weekend curled up in a fetal position watching Amélie. If only my life could be viewed through a warm toned filter. In the midst of my pity party, I also rediscovered my unyielding favoritism for Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away. Understandably this book is the best thing in the world, and it provided me with much consolation Sunday night. Side note, Haku used to be the object of all my anime affection until I found out he was twelve. oKAY

After spending three months virtually not caring about my appearance or clothing choices, getting back into the swing of looking presentable was harder than I had thought. Wearing pants again was even more of a struggle. I went through a brief angsty teen period over the summer. I was thinking of dying my hair blue, and studded literally every piece of denim I own. Just in case anyone else is going through a back to school "fashion rut", I laid out a few outfits of my own.
Just a few of my favorite things... Check out my backpack in all of its decked out Asian glory. I ordered it from Rakuten a few days ago, and it arrived at my house fairly quickly for having come all the way from Japan. Also I received these wonderful bows from Kim and Al's Bowtique (oh puns). Besides being unbelievable classy, I find that it stays in my hair all day. You should check them out! If you use the code Chihiro, you'll get 15% off your order.
