Grandpa Patches

I'v been itching to do this DIY recently, so last night I went to the nearest fabric store and picked up some faux-suede leather material. I cut out elbow patches, sewed them on, and wa-lah! From Granny sweater to Grandpa sweater. Here's the finished product--

 I thought this one was cool, minus the blurriness!

Found this new single on FWBA that I really like. Its called "New Ordinary" by Day Joy. Check it out here. Happy Friday! Don't walk under any ladders today ;)

Christmas Cheer

Merry Christmas from Minnesota and my lovely new deer friend. I found this guy at an antique mall in Rockville, Indiana. "Hibbing, MN" is inscribed on the bottom of the plaque, which just so happens to be the where my dad grew up-as well as Bob Dylan. It was an exciting find! Anyways, I hope everyone's Christmas was very merry and bright :)

I just found this video on Friends with Both Arms of Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr performing in a small eco-village in Iceland. I don't know why they went, but its pretty neat. My great grandmother was Icelandic, so that makes me 12.5% Icelandic. I'd really like to go there someday-it looks so beautiful in this video! Check it out here

I'm done with finals! Done done and done. Only one more semester left of college. Eek! I'm going to post about my DIY fur collar jacket when I get home. Happy holidays to all!

Sorry for dropping off the face of the planet again! I've been so busy with school that I haven't had any time to blog. I  like this blog thing, but its a lot more high maintenance than a tumblr. Cross your fingers that the blogspot gods don't hear that and give me the boot :D

When my parents came to visit at the end of September, we went to this place called Cataract Falls. My mom and I climbed down to a part of the falls thats hidden from the main lookout and it was amazing! SO cool. Here are some pictures:

I'm back home in good old Minnesota for the week, which has given me time to take a breath. ((in the infamous words of Steven B) (that's my dad)). So far my fall break has consisted of school work, studying for the MCAT, sleeping, thrifting, and catching up with family and friends.

Really really current- I mean right now-life updates:

1. Its flippin' COLD in Minnesota. I thought it was fall??

2. I signed up for the MCAT. Extremely scary yet exciting at the same time. Freud would approve. 

3. Found a new thrift store in Minneapolis! Well, no actually my sister did. But its awesome! Go check out Hill Valley Boutique if you're in the state.

4. This song:

(I finally watched Ghost World in its entirety) 

Let me know if this song gets permanently stuck in your head like it has in mine.
Have a great weekend!

p.s. Do you ever wish you could breathe underwater?

I have a new song for you. A little wonky, but I like it. Check out "Hey Gurl" by The Group Sound here

Life updates: My friends came to visit!!

School has been crazy so far, but also really fun. Going to school in the U.S. is SO much more stressful than Denmark. I want my hygge back. Also, I'm the "Goddess" in a dance competition for all the Greek houses called "Greek God and Goddess." Haha sounds ridiculous, I know. But I've been really busy with all that jazz. Last update-it's my birthday tomorrow! Or more like in 27 minutes. The big 22. 21 where did you go? Hopefully it will only get better from here :)

Tuesday Tunes

I felt like it was about time I posted again, and wanted to share some music with you! Lots of blogs do Music Mondays, and I really like some of the music that the urban outfitters blog posted here. The song "Cheap Perfume" by Bare Wires is pretty neat. Very lo-fi, which is definitely one of my favorite types of music. I realize that this blog has kind of been transitioning into more music than anything since I haven't had time for much else. If you want to hear about anything in particular let me know! Hope this helps cure your weekend blues :)

Song that I like

You might recognize these guys from the MTV music awards. They were so great! This song rocks.

This week has been my first official week back at school and it's already been crazy with work. Maybe I'm not used to the academic level of DePauw after being in Copenhagen for four months, but jeez, so much for the senior slide! I also have been trying to figure out my plans for after graduation and realized I have to start studying for the MCAT pretty soon if I want to be ready to apply for medical schools in August. Yikes. Looks like MCAT Kelsey is about to emerge...get ready.
