Hello lovelies! I have been away from my blog due to my heavy workload. I took a midterm for my Statistics class last week and I have another one on Thursday! That's right... ANOTHER midterm! Then right after that, I have a project for my music class and then it's finals week for Summer Session! Summer Session is only 5 weeks long so everything is crammed in however, I am glad I have 10 days off before the "real" school year begins on September 22!

Currently listening to Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley

 AT ZARA: I immediately fell in love with this skirt when I tried it on so I had to get it! I loved the shirt but I do not think it was worth $100.. I think there are better looking and better quality blouses out there so I will continue my search for the perfect white blouse. 

 I tried on this skirt second and I was indifferent about it. Although the color blocking looks amazing, the skirt as a whole made my hips look really big (not apparent in the picture). 

So I have been frantically studying for midterms and on the weekend before the exam, Jonathan was working on my closet! My mom wanted to expand it or rather make one side dedicated toward shoes so he built in a shoe rack for us! Thank you so much Jonathan! 

I will upload the "finished" picture later!

I am planning to read The Memoirs of Hector Berlioz during my spare time. As according to one of the editorial reviews of the book: 
 "His book is both an account of his important place in the rise of the Romantic movement and a personal testament. He tells the story of his liaison with Harriet Smithson, and his even more passionate affairs of the mind with Shakespeare, Scott, and Byron. Familiar with all the great figures of the age, Berlioz paints brilliant portraits of Liszt, Wagner, Balzac, Weber, and Rossini, among others. And through Berlioz's intimate and detailed self-revelation, there emerges a profoundly sympathetic and attractive man, driven, finally, by his overwhelming creative urges to a position of lonely eminence."

My professor read an excerpt from this memoir and it was definitely intriguing. I felt the pain Berlioz was experiencing through his descriptive statements and cries of anguish. Hopefully the entire book is as good as that small excerpt.
