Rainboots and bars

I've been going through orientation almost non-stop! I've been to 3 happy hours (including a cockroach incident). I've been to a minority grad student potluck. I've learned that crazy things can happen when you teach in classrooms (an example given by our teacher: someone in her class interrupted her lecture by standing up and screaming, "YOU WILL NOT TAKE THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN!"). I've learned I really really like the 16 other people in my psychology cohort.

I've also learned that I really really need some waterproof shoes and cute jackets to help me pass the winter away. I say this now, even though this past weekend was GORGEOUS. Earlier in the week, we got a taste of gloomy, wet, Seattle. All the Seattlites said, "that's it! No more sun. The rain has started." It freaked Clara (my new best friend, and fellow bay area gal) and me out. So tell me folks, which rain boot do you like?

I need cute happy clothes to keep me going this winter. Clara already suited up and donned this cute pair earlier this week!

I tried going to Ross, but alas, I didn't find anything I liked!

I ended up coming home and buying this coat in teal:

I'm not sure how I feel about the buttons though.

Classes start on Wednesday! I'm still trying to comprehend that I'm entering graduate school--that I'll be here for at least another 5 years of my life! Man!

yeah. 5 yrs. my program started about 3 weeks ago, and i have to say that i wasn't prepared at all. AT ALL.
Go for whatever boots make you happy when you look at them. However, I'm not sure the teal coat and red rainboots go together?
