Life is a Pile of Good Things and Bad Things // Daily Outfit

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant. 
~ 11th Doctor Matt Smith, Vincent and the Doctor.

 My life definitely feels like a pile of good and bad things lately. The good things are:

1. A new job that I think I will be really good at and really like.
2. Making new friends.
3. Putting down roots for the first time in thirteen years.
4. Hobbies that I love.
5. More independence than I've ever had before.
6. A new reason to look forward to checking my email.
7. A new Owl City album to look forward to.
8. A new season of Doctor Who to look forward to.
9. Lots of fun plans for September.
10. A good camera all to myself. ♥

But then there is the bad:

1. Growing apart from some of my old friends.
2. Not seeing my family as much as I'd like to.
3. Family drama.

I guess the good things definitely outweigh the bad. ♥

  1. You look lovely! I especialy love the sun-glasses. And yes the good things do outweight the bad!
    Merrily Merrily,


  2. Love your outfit! Especially the polka dots!
    That quote is one of my favorites...actually, Vincent and the Doctor is one of my very favorite Doctor Who episodes! It always brings are to my eyes. The point is not letting the bad things overwhelm the good in your mind...I find that no matter how many things seem to go wrong in a single day (really, I once had a day where I did badly on an exam, then got lost on the way to a concert with my friend, then ended up leaving the umbrella in the car only to find it pouring after the concert, then getting stuck in the parking garage because a car broke down and blocked the entrance....and yet, it was a really good day! It just depends on the point of focus). Lol, and now I'm done rambling.(;

    I'm very much looking forward to that new season of Doctor Who! I just hope it hurries up and gets here!


  3. Whenever I need a good cry, I always watch VIncent and the Doctor, such a fantastic episode. Brilliant quote.

  4. I love your top and neckace! As long as there are good things, I believe they'll always outweigh the bad :)

  5. Watch out for pixies in the forest behind you.

  6. how are you not dying from heat in jeans! :) I'm pretty sure I'd be cooking in jeans over here! But I mean you have a perfectly good reason to, because your outfit is so adorable!!! :)

  7. that is a REALLY good quote - i quite like it and i haven't heard it before. and unfortunately, you always grow apart from people - i've really learned to appreciate the time i had with people and i try to spend my time with the friends i have now as happy as possible because i'm sure one day, we'll stop calling each other. anyhow - i LOVE that top - so cute! and i would be totally dying in jeans right now - but yours are great
