Several Things I Do Not Have

This blog is fast on its way to becoming my unfiltered place to whine. But indulge me a little further. As I mentioned I've got this wedding, this indian wedding, but what I haven't got is a thing to wear. As you may or may not know color is a huge part of traditional indian weddings. It is disrespectful to wear black(my go to color) because since it is the color of mourning it is seen as an ill wish towards the couple. White is also inappropriate, although the bride wears red, because it is the color worn at funerals. Final, since the bride wears red, red is out. Since I wear predominantly red, black and earth tones, my closet is providing me with not a thing to wear. I would love to find something along the lines of turquoise, magenta or orange but it seems that those colors are few and far between this season and frankly Ithaca does not offer a wealth of shopping options.

On an unrelated topic, I am still going through serious dog withdrawl. And no amount of babysitting my parents pooches seems to be curing it. It would be premature of me to adopt a dog right now and I know that. I can't support myself, I couldn't possibly support a new pooch. But lord, next to a job, that is all I want. Something to miss me, to need me, to be excited when I come home. Mt cats are fantastic, but it's not the same. I suppose I'm just having a touch time keeping my chin up. I feel a lot like I'm treading water. For all its wide open space, this place feels like it's closing in on me. I know I'm not alone in my unemployed wasteland, but it feels awful lonely. We've all been through tough times in our lives. How did you guys get through them?


  1. Hi Ace!

    Okay I know this is not as helpful because it would mean purchasing something, but a lot of online stores are having summer sales- on dresses to! I just got a blue dress for about $40 from asos.com that would look beautiful on you! And there is always F21 for budget-friendliness. My go-to color is also black so I totally understand where you're coming from.

    As for tough times (I'm so sorry you are going through one now!) - I try to keep reminding myself that it's only temporary. That it's just a finite amount of time and things are bound to change. I'm not an optimist by nature, so it's hard for me to keep that perspective, but it does help!

    I hope you are having a wonderful, wonderful week!


  2. Hi Lar, thanks so much for your comment! Im' doing a bit better today. After a complete break down to my father we sort of hashed things out and it was decided that I need to just go to NYC and hit the pavement and look for any job that can just get me there. I am generally an optimist by nature so it's hard when I keep building myself up and seeing things not come through but I'm trying to keep on truckin. The new boy I'm dating is also helping with the whole positive attitude thing, dating is scary but at the same time it's nice to be doing so with someone sweet after being out of the game for quite some time.

    As far as dresses, I found one! It's a lot less fance than I was thinking but I'll definitely wear it again. It's orange jersey and spaghetti strapped and i'm just going to load up on gold jewelry and get some gold heels. Plus the dress was only $20. Promise to post pictures as soon as I've got them! Thanks again for the encouragement hun!
