5 Things I'm Excited About

1.
Autumn. It’s my favorite season, and I’m ready for a few cozy months of homemade stew, new pencils and warm sweaters.
2.
The Great Courses: World History videos that I’m currently studying. The man who teaches them is both a teacher and a Shakespearean actor, so he wears costumes and acts out the time of history that he’s lecturing on. History’s always been my favorite subject, and this only makes it all the more interesting!

3.
The current GO collection at Target. I don’t think it’s any particular designer, but there were so many pieces that I wanted to buy. I really like what Target’s doing with fashion, and I hope my future collections will, like their GO line, be cheap, chic, classy, and youthful.


4.
Lucky Magazine. I recently quit my Teen Vogue subscription because I was tired of the juvenile writing and the repetitive fashion layouts (Hey, look! It’s a tall white girl jumping around in a mismatched pile of expensive designer clothes!). I really think that they no longer have their finger on what’s cool in fashion. I much prefer Lucky’s fashion aesthetic and I can’t wait to receive the first issue.

5.
James McAvoy as Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming Hobbit movie. It’s as if, for a moment, the stars aligned and those casting agents finally saw things correctly. On the other hand, they were considering Jack Black, so maybe they’re not a great as I think.

(I couldn't resist using a picture of him in Regency costume :)

All of those seem to be equally good reasons to be excited, but I'm going to have to say the history class sounds great! I wish I had someone like that when I was in school.

Fall is my favorite time of year also. I need to get out more... I didn't know there was a Hobbit movie coming out !

Margeaux said...

Yeah, I think the Hobbit is coming out in 2011. It's going to be two movies, actually, which is very exciting.

back in june, i think james mcavoy said he was not in consideration for the hobbit. i hope he is though and is just trying to end all the speculation. he would fit the role perfectly.
