An Aggregation of Thoughts. Duh.

Sigh. Always got me blushing. Makes my heart skip faster than models who do just that with breakfast. Smart, has a sense of humour, kind to me--by golly, PERFECT. Match made in heaven.
We are simply compatible.
We've got history, and you best believe it, chemistry too!


I am in love with vintage/thrift shopping and it is apparent these feelings are mutual.
How else must I have stumbled upon some tasty, mouth-watering finds these past few weeks?

Any apprehensions about living in a capitalist society are annihilated when it comes to that point in my life where I undergo a little retail therapy. Perhaps a little visual stimulation is needed to thaw the hearts of you stone-cold fellers who scoff at such a proposition. Behold: Stuff I Bought Recently.







Look for them in future outfit posts--a little "I Spy With My Little Eye" never hurt a soul.

p.s.  I am planning my life, or whatever, and I hand the responsibility over to YOU, dear blogosphere. Can y'all help me choose 2 out of 5 of these potential majors: sociology, political science, anthropology, international relations and psychology. Comments/suggestions/opinions/
insults greatly welcomed. They all interest me and I can't make up mind!



p.p.s. My journalism prof, Alfred Hermida, former BBC correspondent, conducted an interview with Gadaffi back in 1995! Here is the tyrant in his flamboyantly-dressed and still-ugly-back-then-dictator-y self.

Here's the corresponding article: CLICK! Gaddafi was even crazy 16 years ago!


p.p.p.s. This song has been on repeat all week.

p.p.p.p.p.s. {quote of the week}

International Relations is the answer.
Well, I also like vintage, but at the moment I posted about the clothes of the fashionist Naima Kamal, do you know her? Take a look at the pictures in my blog.
Best Wishes.

definitiely, psychology and anthropology springs to mind when I think of you and your blog, they seem like topics that will interest you a lot. Please let us know what you do end up picking, cannot wait to see 'real' pics of your vintage finds, (not that 'paint' images aren't real!) lol

BoogieMonsterMan said...

Definitely International Relations because it is a interdisciplinary approach that covers ALL of these courses you mentioned and more.

Urooba said...

@jtz: you think so? psychology and anthro? hmmmmmmm. I love how you're able to gauge that info from my blog!
p.s. tell me a bit more about you--I see you're a frequent reader/commenter on my blog (THANK YOU <3!) But I know nothing about YOU! p.s. yesssss, "real" images are in order. :D

My opinion is International Relations is the answer to your question.
I am in love too with vintage clothes, did you visit some Etsy? There are amazing vintage shops, the best as ever :)

I love your ilustrations..can wait to see these pieces in an outfit ! and thank you for commenting on my blog I acctualy blog in Bosnian language but it is pretty much the same as Croatian.. It is like American and British English difference-

Denise Bomfim said...

Salam, Urooba! Thanks for visiting my blog:)
I see that three people answered "International Relations". In this case, you can be connected with many people of different cultures and also you will have the oportunity to travel a lot.(Insh´Allah)And also this career is more politically engaged.
But I think that whatever you choose, you will be successful!
Kisses!
