Winter Break Boredom

I am rarely bored. Honestly, I spend so much time going to class, doing homework, and studying that I often find that there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything, let alone be bored. That means when I have a moment to do nothing and be "bored," I take it. This probably sounds strange, but when I am mindlessly watching TV or scrolling through who knows how many random pages on the internet and I think, "I'm bored," I actually smile. That means I have had a long enough break so I can get back to work, whether that means researching/reading psychology articles or considering cleaning my apartment (I would like to say that I am the kind of person that "sweeps problems under the rug," but even that is more cleaning than I typically get around to during a busy semester).

The problem with this winter break is that I am bored with the clothes I packed with me for my vacation here at my parents' house. Just as my apartment is rarely, if ever, clean, my clothes are washed as infrequently as humanly possible. Essentially, I will be on my last pair of underwear before doing laundry. That means I do not repeat outfits that often because they are all dirty on my floor until I get around to washing everything. I was at the point of desperately needing to clean my clothes when I packed. So as I took clothes out of the dryer, I either threw them on my bed or in a bag to bring home (I am dreading coming home to that, but I will worry about it later).

The clothes I packed were mostly all button down shirts. Do not get me wrong, I love button down shirts (especially, if they are from the 80s or 90s). However, wearing them almost every day for two weeks is too much. So I spent one day this week trying to make one of my fantastic patterned shirts fun again by taking a whole bunch of pictures to share! Enjoy!
