In The Fashionista's Closet: The Light of Day

Yay! I made it outside! In the daytime!
My days consist of me going to school while it's dark outside and coming home when it's dark outside. And everyone acts as though this is normal. "Yeah, my first year teaching was like that too." But this is NOT normal, people. They should tell you these things before you sign on the dotted line.

"You will forfeit all semblance of your life for at least one year except the weekends where your only respite will be to engage in drinking alcoholic beverages and drunk texting."  

Just kidding. *But not really.*
But don't cry for me Argentina because I'm thinking of birthday plans that I hope will make up for my endless hours at work.

Sunglasses: Pitaya
Jacket: Thrifted
Dress: Gap
Scarf: Random store in the mall
Earrings: Forever 21

I feel like a vampire. And not a cool, True Blood one either....(Isn't that the one with the vampires?)

Full disclosure, my first and second year included some drinkin' (teachers drink a lot :-). But on a serious note, that military jacket is beyond words. I would wear that thing every chance I got :-). I love how you styled it!!

No, it is NOT normal! The contract tells you what hours you're OBLIGATED to work, but not the hours it may take to prepare for each lesson each day! That's where time management and not reinventing the wheel comes into play...I refuse to let work become my life! I love my "me" time too much! I know you will make up for it when you celebrate your birthday, but try to get some YOU time in daily before then!
