What I Wore This Week and How I Spent It ðŸŒ¸

Hello friends, and welcome to another post about my outfits. The previous one was well received, which makes me think that a) you guys like my clothing or, more likely, b) pictures make reading easier. Either way, this is a democracy! You asked, so I will deliver.

Monday

Starting off with a sequined top, which could belong in a luxury circus, I decided to keep the rest of my look more simple. The black skirt (J crew) balances it out, and the furry cheetah purse comes in handy when working with a bunch of seven year olds who use the tail attachment to pretend that they, themselves, are cheetahs. Speaking from experience.

Tuesday

Next, I wore this outfit. I know what you’re thinking: who pairs leggings with a blazer? Only a girl whose lower half is unseen by the zoom camera, that’s who. I was interviewing for my millionth practicum site. Half of my life is spent interviewing for practicum at this point.

But this was different. Imagine going on six or seven dates that are total duds, and finally, you are on #8. Conversation flows easily, effortlessly, and you find yourself anticipating another meeting. This date analogy is the only way I can explain the practicum site I interviewed for most recently. My interviewer’s cat walked across the keyboard, which favorably disposed me to her (another cat person! good times ahead!). I answered every question in a way that showed I prepared but did not rehearse too much. The interview just felt natural.

I could tell that my interviewer, the founder of a site where practicum students work with dual diagnosis patients, knew what she was doing. And I really, really wanted to spend next year there.

Wednesday

This next outfit is what I wore to class. Edginess is hardly my forte (I spend most days well within my comfort zone, clad in florals and breezy blouses). But hey, why not change it up?

I’m aware that this is not the most flattering picture, but it’s the outfit that counts! Look at that glorious denim maxi skirt!

Thursday

For this last outfit, warmth was the priority. My diversity class requires me to immerse myself in another culture, and the one I was assigned is Filipino culture. So, last night, I set out on an adventure to sample an Asian drink and filipino bean cake.

Listen, guys. I am not the type to eat BEANS, let alone in cake form. But, in the spirit for trying new things, I bit into my first bean cake.

My immediate reaction to the bean cake: suspicious and then impressed

Apparently, bean cakes are made to be sweet, both the outsides and the insides. The exterior has a pancake consistency, and then you taste a bean combination. I’d rate it a solid 7/10.

And that was a week in outfits (well, close enough)!

Hi, I'm Vera. I'm starting grad school for neuropsychology in fall 2020. A google search revealed that there are no current grad school blogs for psychology students. Anyway, I happen to know a girl who wants to document her journey to getting a doctorate (spoiler: it's me). Welcome. Hope you stay awhile!
