This weekend was marked by a little bit of laziness due to the fact that I'm currently fighting off sickness likely caused from exhaustion and stress. I'm not always the best at prioritizing, though; the weekend is the only time of the week that I don't feel weighed down by tasks and assignments so I wasn't about to sacrifice the entire weekend staying in.
On Thursday evening, I went to The Metropolitan Museum of Art with Maddie and Allie because the museum was holding a free event for college students in honor of the opening of some new galleries
After people left for Brooklyn, Vanessa and I stayed back and she showed me some inspiring fashion campaign videos. That night, I fell in love with Prada. I'm probably the last person on this earth to have seen the beautifully orchestrated Spring/Summer 2012 campaign video, but if you have not seen it I encourage you to do so.

Later, Vanessa and I went out $1 pizza in the rain and met up with my friends Graham and Miles and some of their friends at their dorm where we sat around listening to some jazz, which was a nice mix between relaxing and social. I ended running into a bunch of friends who live in the building and whom I hadn't seen in awhile, which was a wonderful surprise.
Saturday daytime was spent "studying" with friends. About an hour into studying at the library, we took a break for smoothies and found the sociable dining hall to be a more enticing (and distracting) place to get work done.
After spending the entire day cooped up doing work, I felt anxious to get dressed up. I put on my grungy grandma-esque sweaters and a beanie (Maddie said I looked like Mary-Kate, the ultimate compliment in my book). Vanessa styled and lent me her navy blue maxi to finish off my homeless-chic outfit.
That evening, I went out to dinner with some of my favorites, Logan and Sandy. We found a wonderful, little (literally) crepe restaurant on St. Mark's where we enjoyed cheap grub and eachother's company.
Midterms are this week, which means I'm about to go temporarily crazy with stress. Fortunately, though, my mom will be visiting all the way from California for this coming weekend and Spring Break is next week when my best friend, Jess, will be visiting from Arizona as well.
P.S. for those who are interested in my fashion/editorial work, I have a very exciting shoot coming up within the next few weeks and a few others in the works. Can't wait to start taking advantage of the networking here in the city..!
Happy Spring to those who have some time off from school or are getting some warm weather back into their life!
