After much reading, writing, group work, frustration, gossip, and drinking, my first year of grad school is officially done. Despite the ups and downs, it’s been a rewarding experience – not necessarily because it’s challenging work, but because I’m taking the whole thing more seriously as a grownup. Unlike my undergrad when I simply went through the motions, I’m approaching grad school with a sense of purpose and consciousness.
After a particularly draining semester, I really needed a getaway. So we took a trip to Vegas over the long weekend. The weather was just the perfect amount of hot and we had a luxurious suite overlooking the city.
Three days went by before we knew it, and I’m looking at the photos wanting to go back already.
Without intending to, I packed only inexpensive items for the trip. I suppose it’s fitting, since having our income cut in half after becoming a full time student has taken its toll on my shopping budget. But that doesn’t mean my looks have to suffer, and these outfits are a nice reminder of that.
