somehow my bb* coerced me into participating in kendi's 30 for 30 challenge. i knew, i knew it was a bad idea. but, i let peer pressure get the best of me and now i've committed myself to something i'm not sure i have the gumption for. yes, gumption.

wait, let's back up. do you even know what the 30 for 30 challenge is??
basically, you pick 30 items from your closet (excluding accessories and underlings) and "remix" them to create 30 outfits over the next 30(ish) days. apparently everybody's doin' it so i though maybe i should too.

well, today was supposed to be the first day and, not only have i not even chosen my 30 items, i haven't even gotten dressed today. (is "gotten" even a word?) i stayed up late watching get him to the greek for the second time with my cousin (it's really funny) and then i woke up super-early to drive her back to school in time for spanish. yeah, spanish. apparently she's a very responsible college student because... she actually goes to spanish. so i stayed up late, got up early, and drove to iowa city. all before noon, in my pj's. so now it's 2:00 and i feel like it ought to be 5:00 because i've accomplished so much.
(you know, like, getting out of bed and...driving.)

sweats: target
shoes: toms
hair: nappy

all this to say: i am NOT prepared for the 30x30. not even close. i have a color scheme in mind, but i haven't nailed down my final 30. plus, i have mild anxiety about being confined to 30 items of clothing for the next 30(ish) days. what if...i needneed to wear my teal hoody but it's not part of my 30?! or what if i can't stand to wear my skinny jeans one.more.time. but they're part of my 30? eek. i'm way over-thinking this fashion challenge.
they are just clothes. it's not a big deal. i can do it.


okay. i feel better.
but, i need to confess, my 30 for 30 will have to start tomorrow.
thanks for stickin with me. i know i suck. but you love me anyway, right?
you love me?! you really love me! (should i go sally field right now? or not...)
did i mention i'm really tired? people shouldn't blog when they're tired. it's like people who drunk-dial. NOT a good idea.

*bb=blogging buddy
