It's Been a While

It's been a pretty intense week for me. I had to work at anthro every day as soon as I got out of school until closing (usually 11:30pm). It was really taking its toll on me. My blood sugar was out of control and a few personal issues came up, so I had to quit. I could NOT handle the hours. Luckily, I did find another job at a Urologist's office that is much more flexible and they close at 4:30! MUCH better. I can focus more on school, and I don't have to wander a creepy parking garage at midnight! I have to wear a uniform and they aren't paying me for training, which is a little annoying, but I should be actually starting sometime this week. Hopefully. The uniform is probably what makes me the saddest. I really loved working at anthro. I loved the people, the environment, (the discount). C'est la vie I suppose.

Work Wishlist

Spring and Summer anthropologie, wishlist, anthro, anthropologie, boho clothing, hipster outfits, beautiful summer outfits, beautiful spring outfits,

So, I started school today. Organic Chemistry II and a lab. That's not very exciting at all. I also worked today, which was a bit more eventful, but not by much. I will say that people are crazy. My first day there was a woman who asked me to steam a shirt she bought ages ago that we don't even have in stock. When I came back with her top, her husband asked me if I could go fetch him frozen yogurt. I don't know about you, but even for retail that's kind of odd. 
Anyway, these are a few items I have been lusting for while I do my job all day (or rather all night as I've been closing the past two days!) I haven't tried any of these on yet, so I can't comment much on the fit, but I did see dress number one on someone else while working the fitting rooms. It's gorgeous! Plus I am itching to use my discount. Which one of these should I pick? That's where the real problem lies!

She Could Be a Pharmer In Those Clothes

Hi!! I'm Hannah and I write the blog she could be a pharmer in those clothes.

First things first: yes, I know my blog weird and long. When I decided to start a blog I just couldn't think of anything that felt "me." I wanted something that incorporated fashion and style, but was a bit more creative then just "science & style" or something along those lines. The "pharmer" bit comes from pharmacology, which is what I'm getting my PhD in, and the quote "she could be a farmer in those clothes" is from the movie Clueless (a million bonus points to anyone who stumbles upon a youtube clip or gif of that line, fyi). The wordplay was too good to resist. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a good (bad) pun.

I started my blog just about a year ago. Being in grad school, I'm in this weird transitional phase in my life. Honestly, my lab is fairly casual and I could get by wearing my old college uniform of sweatpants and thrifted t-shirts. But on the other hand, I would hope that I'm more of an adult than I back when I was in college, and wouldn't it be nice if my outsides reflected my insides? So I decided to start a blog to motivate myself to dress a little more like a real person. Plus, I've always been a fan of blogging/journaling (and it was nice to see that Jacqueline is also a livejournal alum!) so starting a blog seemed like a natural decision.

My blog is mostly OOTD posts and science posts. I love science. To be frank, it is probably my defining characteristic: science nerd. Thinking about how we are made up of all these microscopic cells, which are made of even smaller molecules, made up of tiny subatomic just makes my brain spasm and my heart flutter. How can you not want to know how all that mystery inside us works? Being in graduate school I am exposed to lots of science (obviously), but I really enjoy writing science posts for my blog because it's a different kind of science. Less of "science is a cruel, demanding mistress who kicks my ass all day" and more of "oh shit that's awesome!" It's a good way to remind myself why I'm putting up with all these headaches.

Thanks to Jacqueline for letting me guest post and be introduced to all of you!

Golden Delicious Pants vs Skirts

Ah, my trusty yellow pants. They're actually the exact color of my favorite apples (golden delicious apples) which only makes me love them even more. These pants are always there when I have no idea what to wear, but still want to look stylish. I've never been a huge fan of denim. You'll rarely see me wearing blue denim anything. Skirts>pants. Always. Especially in the heat and humidity of Miami. Pants just don't breathe. They're also quite constricting. I'd rather feel the breeze on my legs and move with the swish of my skirt. Basically, the only way these pants could be any better is if they were a skirt.
I mentioned a few weeks ago on twitter that I had an interview for a job at Anthropologie. Well, I got the job! I start on Friday and I could not be more excited. Hello employee discount! It could not have come at a better time with my best friend's birthday and Mother's Day falling on the very same Sunday!

Le Sigh

That awkward moment when you're determined to blog every day during your break, and you wear an outfit you feel great about, but it rains all day and the sky is impossibly gray...

I would like to make some demands of the sky! I demand sunshine tomorrow! Not a whole lot, just enough to take my tripod out and snap a few nice pictures and be done with it. That's all! No big deal. Ugh.

I really liked my outfit today though. Maybe if it's sunny tomorrow I'll post two. The one from today and one for tomorrow. Ooh la la...
