Friday night, my friend Elizabeth and I attended the "Big Ass Twitter Happy Hour" (#BATHH) at the Kung Foo Saloon on West 6th Street. Because the universe either likes to prove me wrong, or make me happy, (sometimes both), I lamented to Elizabeth about how big Austin is, and how I can't go out and see lots of people I know like I can in Little Rock. So I get my beer, (Young's double chocolate stout - my kind of post-breakup chocolate indulgence), turn around, and woah! TWO people I know. My friend Katie, of the infamous birthday scavenger hunt, and Claire, another site director for after school programming who I indirectly work with. Sometimes being wrong is great.
Elizabeth took my outfit pictures before going out. Thank goodness for friends! I've started a list of things I will have to invest in when I move into my new apartment, (I'm 85% sure I'm moving into a new apartment on May 1st - please cross your fingers for me that the apartment I share with Lennon and Eirik now is leased to someone else before then). So far, I have this:
- Crosley Turntable - recommended by one of my supervisors at the BGC, and after photographing Record Store Day for Venus, I am even more sold on wanting one. I'm thinking housewarming gift to myself!
- A tripod - no more boyfriend to take my photos. Stifling a sigh.
Shoes: I have temporarily stolen these from Michelle! Shhhh don't tell!
Skirt: Forever 21
Silver bangle: found in my mom's things
Necklace: from a Little Rock boutique
Headband: Goodie Two Shoes in Austin
Any other rules of singledom I should be aware of and put into practice?
