The hectic-ness of today's 8-hour orientation and disappointingly unorganized apartment hunting began with the unfortunate failure of my iPhone alarm, which decided on a whim to go off an hour and a half later than I wanted it to, leaving me 15 minutes to get ready. My recent affinity for white on white and the promise of warm Californian weather made this button down/cutoff shorts combination seem undeniably attracting, so I put my faith in the outfit's street-wearability and didn't notice that the shorts were all but invisible under the longness of my shirt until I was well into my orientation. meeting other students for the first time. and teachers. and advisors. and the dean. all in an outfit that for all intents and purposes was a much-too-short button down shirt dress and heels. Typical, so typical.
