shades of fall
i'm a bonafide leafwatcher now. drove a lot of miles north to see the changing foliage. wonderful color, though the trees down here are nowhere near the peak color points. i discovered today that the idea of naked trees, icicles, and bleak wintry days makes me sad indeed. i think i don't like winter. it is possible i am apprehensive about this upcoming cold season because the last two i had were plagued with bad luck and illness. here's to a new year with uneventful holidays. :)
these are my new leather leggings. i finally got 2 pairs at a reasonable price. i do not regret my choice at all though i foresee a very long period of babying. they're beautiful and incredibly soft. like a wonderful pair of shoes...enveloping your lower body.
school this week will be hectic what with critical assignments due and another exam on thursday. i've been feeling very disheartened of late; not sure if it comes across here and i hope it doesn't. i think my motivation is flagging, out of fear of failure, or perhaps a lack of conviction in my own ability. i have been told for so many years that i am my own worst enemy, but how does one battle that exactly? i mean chanting to oneself and repeating affirmations can take you only so far, right? what about that extra bit to carry you through? where does that come from? some insurgence of influence, perchance? is it even possible to conquer that ever-present, niggling bit of doubt?
k, that's a bit heavy for a monday morning, eh?

how was everyone's weekend? great i hope? the weather was lovely here, if a bit nippy. looking forward to more of it. should make getting dressed a bit more challenging as the temperatures fall. in something like this:
