Holy Comic Print, Batman!

I'm back from my residency! I met a lot of great people and I learned some cool stuff, but it's definitely nice to be back home. Dorm life is not too pleasant. It's nice to have my own bed and shower back again. The residency was full of very long days, and I only slept about 5 hours a night, sometimes more, sometimes less. But when I got back Friday night, I slept 12 1/2 hours! It felt so amazing. Of course I couldn't get to sleep until super late on Saturday night, but I still got 8 hours!

These pictures are actually from a while back before I even left. They were taken at this huge novelty shop that has all sorts of nostalgia items and collectibles. It's full of random things like a McDonald's sign, a giant Ronald McDonald statue, and a life-size cardboard cutout of the Pink Ranger. They also have tons of pins, patches, books, posters, bobbleheads, etc. I found this awesome vintage Jurassic Park pin!! I was excited about it. :)

The place is decorated with all sorts of pop culture references, murals, pictures, etc. They even have a separate haunted house attraction that they run during Halloween season. I'm so ready for Halloween season. I'm pretty sure I want to be Minnie Mouse this year! I felt like this place was fitting for my new awesome comic print skirt by River Island that I got on sale from ASOS recently.

We've had quite a heat wave in New England, lately! It's been in the 90s and humid, nonstop for the past week or so. The temperatures are slightly cooler now (if 83 degrees can be seen as slightly cooler), but the humidity is still relentless. I'm hoping for some rain just so the humidity can break for a bit, although it'll probably just come right back the next day. I can't say it enough...I'm ready for fall!

  1. Lookin cute as always cousin. My friend did all those paintings. That creepy clown one in the 4th picture down is a "self portrait". Pretty rad. I love it there.
