truckin along...

currently riding on a low post-exam tide. am sure the euphoria would be pumping through my veins if only i didn't have 2 x 5,000 word essays due in tomorrow (don't worry, i promise, it's the last you will ever hear of these monstrous beasts). while i'd like to bestow some of my illustrious fashion-related thoughts onto you sweet little muffins the truth is my pillow is calling my name and i've got some hefty work in front of me tonight so i'll keep it short and sweet. here's a little peak inside my bag at the exam necessities that are keeping me upright and relatively sane: comfy shoes (converse), coffee (got given some free coupons for starbucks and now i am horribly hooked on their new cafe creme little wonder with an extra shot of espresso - that's right, it's 3.70 and an addiction i need to get over quickly), lots of black byros (nothing is worse than having your pen run out of ink mid-thought), ipod (because sometimes you just need to block out the incessant noise), feel good jewelry, books (lots and lots of books and notes - i'm a serious crammer up until the very last minute), excedrin (good for knocking nasty stress related headaches - the brands not important, just make sure it's got a kick), gum, sunglasses (no makeup + late nights + early mornings = not such a pretty face), water, and vogue. i treated myself to vogue today after my exam. i needed some non-academic light weight goodness to take my mind off what had just gone down. i've been a bit disappointed with vogue lately but i was actually seriously feeling it today... i pretty much read every word and felt inspired by the editorials (which was good because last months 'more dash than cash' scuba inspired spread kind of pissed me off). they even have a little pre-autumn section which has given me some ideas... will bring you more of my thoughts on this very important matter soon - but if you haven't checked the issue out yet i'd encourage you to do so.
p.s. what keeps you going through times of stress? any tips for me? i've got two weeks left to get through...
