The day before school, I was supposed to meet up with KAPPP to finish the photo shoot for the AVP but that didn't push through because a lot of people weren't able to go. It wasn't an exact waste since I needed to pass by the mall to do grocery. I was super happy that the brogues that I really wanted to buy was in stock for my size... but for a different color.

I don't really mind. Tan/brown leather has been becoming more and more appealing to me lately. I saw this girl get on a UP jeep I was riding and she was wearing this amazing pair of tan brogues. They were lovely with her gray shirt, red plaid school girl skirt, knee high gray socks (which I am lusting over too but can't seem to find!) and vintage bag. I think that look sort of inspired me. It was quirky and very novel. I originally wanted the black ones but whatev. I met Catt, my pep squad orgmate from back in Miriam, while I was torn between these babies and another kind of brogues. She said these were really unique ones that was sure to stand out no matter what I wore. I totally agree! Having them now though, I'm having a hard time integrating them into my outfits since I've always attached brown leather to the kind of clothing I'd wear in a sepia styled photo. I'm working on it.
When I got home, I got super surprised to find out that tOnic by Kim, the brand that makes the shoes I just bought, had an online store pala! And they had stocks! Felt a bit of buyer's remorse. But then again, the shoe grew on me
First day of school: I overslept. HAHA! So much for being an eager beaver! Missed my first two classes, Econ 100.1 and 100.2. And to think I was desperate for those classes before! At least I was able to attend the 100.2 discussion class and the rest of the day went good. My epistemology class gave me a bit of a headache with all the doubting and the question about the justified true belief but it was a really thought-provoking class. At the end of the day, I attended the KAPPP GA and it really was the icing on the cake.
Outfit: Top from Dagupan, DIY denim short shorts and tOnic by Kim brogues.

Recently, I have been feeling really inadequate in my actions and dedication for the org. I've also wondered why the hell I put myself in that position. But then again, during that GA, delivering all the good news and the work ate Reina and I have accomplished really gave me a good feeling about the entire sem and the entire year. I felt fired up. It felt good reviving something that was on the brink of dying. My love for KAPPP has never been more strong. Even more than during the Final Rites.
I've always known that the measure of my day was with how many things I've accomplished. And with the first day of school, even though I missed two classes and all, I still felt like I've done a lot and it made me happy and content. First day of school went well.
