Nik will be back to posting soon  after this Friday -- she's going through her semester finals, which are always stressful. You can do it, Nik! Think kind thoughts for her this week.
I was having a rough day this afternoon -- something I had applied for turned into a rejection email. It felt pretty bad, but I am trying to stay on the sunny side. I was in a foul mood when I came home after work, but I came through the door and Jeremiah had gotten some burritos from Moe's and had Sprinkle on the couch waiting for me. The tense knots and sad feelings began to dissipate. I need to keep telling myself that there are people who love me, I have a lot to look forward to and a lot for which to be grateful.

About the outfit. The necklace is my favorite part because I am obsessed with the ocean and all things nautical (I even learned to sail in high school). I found it at Beacon's Closet in NYC when I went to visit this past spring break. The dress was a pick-me-up purchase last year. I love the color but don't really love how thin it is. Oh well. The combination of green and brown, especially my legs and shoes, made me feel very foliage-y which reminded me of "Land Before Time" and Littlefoot the brontosaurus's obsession with leaves, or "tree-stars," and then hence my favorite quote from the movie which I used for the title. I know, that is a random chain of thoughts, but the idea of dinosaurs forming prehistoric cliques never ceases to amuse me. On another note, we should start calling leaves tree-stars.


Have a good night!
