everything, in the end, comes down to timing

On my day off, I decided to take a trip up to SFU and do a quick shoot with Pat before class. A good friend of mine is a TA for a third-year Communications class, so I thought I'd attend the lecture for fun. It was an interesting class about media and education, and I thought it was ironic that I paid more attention in class today than when I was an actual student a few years ago. I think you don't fully appreciate what you study in school until after you graduate. Only then can you take what you've learned and apply it to everyday life -- it really puts things into perspective.

This will be my last post in the next while. Le Mode du Jour is moving and getting a new look in the process. It's something that I've been wanting to do for awhile, but never got around to starting until a few weeks ago. I'm really excited to reveal the new blog, so hopefully you'll like it as much as I do.

I am wearing an isntthatknit "le snood du jour" in camel (the first of its kind!)
ISNTTHATKNIT is a line of custom, hand-knitted scarves, made in Vancouver, Canada.

Many thanks to Adonia for the beautiful snood, which she so kindly named after me :)

I've been sitting here trying to figure out what to write, but my mind is a blank precarious mess. To state the obvious, I ended up getting the Sparkle & Fade sweater (see previous post) and I've been living in it for the past few days, all while contemplating irrevocable truths. No matter how many times it happens, it never gets any easier.
