I could make a “Hammer Time” joke here, but I’m trying to avoid that cliche.

This has easily been the most chaotic quarter in my college career. Senior year has not lived up to my slacker dreams; there are no days filled with watching marathons of Teen Mom and Jersey Shore, beer pong sessions at 3 PM and writing half assed papers that keep me from failing out but don’t even come close to earning a spot on the fridge. Instead, meetings and class take up most of my time. And eating. Eating takes up a lot of my time.
But while we’re on the subject of time, I’m going to bring up the HaWt fashion trend that is watches. Isn’t it fab that a device which usually stresses me out and makes me wonder why I didn’t study for Italian last night when I spent hours picking at my cuticles, eating potatoes that my roommate made even though I already went to Taco Bell and deciding what to wear tomorrow, can actually become a stylish addition to an outfit? Right now I’m really feeling the big, bulky variety. An example of this watch genre is seen here:
Artsy photo, right? Took it wit ma Droid, nbd.
I love this watch because of it’s masculinity. However, it’s masculinity is why I usually wear this (compliments of my roommate Aimee) with girlie-type outfits, like floral or lace. So the outfit ends up saying something like this: “I’m girlie and cute, but I can still be strong and get places on time because I have this masculine watch sitting proudly on my wrist!” Has anyone else noticed that I constantly make pieces of clothing and/or accessories talk? Hopefully that’s not a sign of mental illness, but I’m not crossing my fingers.
I’m signing off (loser way of saying that I’m ending this post) but I’m going to leave you with a picture that I found online that displays numerous watch types that make me come close to unintentionally annoying my mom by spending a lot of money through online shopping and forcing my bank to hate me even more than they already do.
