A more substantial post.

Hello everyone. Here on the left is last Thursday's outfit, one that I'm particularly proud of. I'm wearing a Metro for Walmart knit cape (I'm cheap), a Free People top, my skinny Levis, and my Marc Jacobs boots. I felt particularly stylish that day, and one girl even went so far as to say that my look was very Soho. If it was New York or London Soho, I do not know, but it is a compliment nonetheless!

And here I watch as Tovi passes out from the excess of fashion talk.

Anyway, what have I been up to lately other than stuffing things in my closet? Not much. I have to commence work on the final editing of my Optika presentation since it will be published in the Optika book! I'm very excited about that. I will be a published writer/author/nerd whatever you want to call it! It's not a massive editing though, just adding some bits here and there and fixing up the ending. I can't include images since I can't get the copyright and such, but still, I believe the essay is interesting enough to hold its own without added visual spice. Specially the deflowering part. Yep.

In other news, I'm still working on the manuscript back at the office. I hope to finish it this week since I already said I would and they've given me that as a deadline. Who would've thought that professors made so many mistakes when writing. Sheesh. But other than that, it's fine. I really like this job: it's amazing what goes on in the book creating process. I work in publishing now, and we see the book from raw material to published text. I'm currently the assistant editor (yes, again!) and my current occupation includes editing manuscripts, working with the stock, and picking up the phone. Wee. I'm also supposed to attend book launches, but due to my schedule, that's become pretty much next to impossible.

As to those who are wondering about my health, I'm much better, but I'm not alright yet. I'm somewhat wary of discussing it online now, since I know that even though there are lots of well-wishers, I also acknowledge that there are people who hate my guts and wish me harm. Oh well. I can't do anything but wish these people well and hope they are okay.

The medications are working, but it's mostly my job to make sure I'm in proper working shape. There are still bad times, but they've become more manageable, to my relief. Of course, I still have a ways to go, but it feels like I'm getting there.

In other news, my cousin had her first child, a tiny little lad called Esteban Andrés. Yes, I know that name sounds like that of a galán de telenovelas (for you English speakers, that would be the equivalent of a Hollywood hearthrob). Usually, I'm pretty retarded around children (as D so lovingly likes to point out), but this time I just couldn't help but stare in wonder at the newborn. My cousin seems changed (and I'm not talking just about maternity and the pounds), she genuinely seems to have become a better person. I'm glad. But I'm still scared of touching the child! (I'm too clumsy, I might hurt him!)

I think that's all, for now. I'm probably forgetting something important, like commenting on how cheesily fantabulous the new Ghost Rider movie is. Heh! And how cute my new owl necklace is. And how nice D looks in his new Pumas. Oh well, that will be for later, I must go now and pretend to care about my pedagogy class.

Oh, and is it just me, but is the newly slimmed down Marc Jacobs kinda scary...?

Great outfit.I don't know if its BoHo or SoHo or what, but its definitely the style used here. I wore my super killer knee length Aldo bootsto school today. They got a few stares. They're awesome. I'm glad to hear that you;re doing better and that you love your job. That's always good. Keep us posted!
