Ohio and Michigan


I wore this yesterday to go to the library and finish assignments that are due this week. Ever since I got here I have been questioning whether or not Environment and Resource Studies is the right major for me, but this research project I'm doing on the Alberta Tar Sands/a 1976 book called simply 'the Tar Sands' by Larry Pratt is reinspiring my passion for environmental issues. Plus, there is a field trip to tour 'green buildings' in Ohio and Michigan soon that I am hugely excited for!


My passion for thermal socks, spectator brogues and rolled-up pants is also continuing full speed. Also, thanks for all the wonderful comments on my video blog. It made me want to do one again soon, but I'll need something excellent to discuss. Any ideas?

The '70s were a big time for environmental activism.

I'm really in love with the last picture--thermal socks, spectator brogues and rolled-up pants are wonderful in combination. I'm glad you're feeling inspired about environmentalism.

Those brogues are killing me. Absolute perfection.

My idea well is a little dry at the moment, but I'm sure you'll get some inspiration from somewhere!

Love the rolled up pants/socks/spectators. And you totally should go into that (well if it's what you want to do). My aunt works for a firm where they consult with companies on how to make their new buildings energy efficient. It's cool stuff.

Personally I would love to hear about this research paper and the trip to ohio and michigan, although that's not your usual type of post! :) but it sounds so very interesting. Do let me know how that goes whether you do a vlog on it ornot.

Loving the brogues by the way.. I am still hunting for a pair.
