The Fedora Effect

   I would say I have a decent sense of style, I can easily match colors and other simple things along that line. Then I got a fedora. My entire style game changed. People that had known me my entire life to strangers in a cafĂ© complimented my hat, saying how awesome or stylish it was. This was just a plain black fedora I had gotten at Wal-Mart for seven dollars. Not anything fancy or expensive.
   It surprised me, that a fitted piece of stiff material on my head, made such a difference. We went to a coffee shop recently, a quaint little place, where a older lady, (older than my mom) said to me, "Your hat, is awesome." I said thank you and stuff and a while later, while she was on her way out, she patted my shoulder and said, "Enjoy your hat."
   Almost every where I go, when I wear the fedora, I get a compliment or two. How about that? It's quite the phenomenon. So my advice to you, is if you want a instant style upgrade, get a fedora.

17 Random Things About Myself

1: Autumn is my favorite season. I love the cooler temperatures and the changing leaves. My least favorite season is spring because of all the mud, tornadoes, and sickness.

2: I really love to paint, even though I suck at it. Thank God that abstract is really an art form.

3: I have sensitive teeth, mostly sensitive to sweetness and pressure.

4: I wear glasses, a pair with thin brown rims. I can see without them, just not very well.

5: My favorite color is orange. Not an obnoxious orange, but a vibrant, warm orange.

6: I love rainy days. While most people find them depressing, I adore them.

7: I have a favorite number. That number is 7. It's always been my favorite number and always will be. My second favorite number is either 3 or 17, hence the 17 Random Things. I prefer odd numbers to even numbers. Yes, I know how weird that sounds, but I guess I'm just that weird.

8: I'm homeschooled. I've mentioned it before, and I'm proud. Most of my friends are homeschooled, but I do have some public schooled friends. I am socialized.

9: I love Reader's Digest magazine. I don't have a subscription to it, but my uncle does and he brings me down the ones he gets.

10: I'm quite the night owl. I love the night and evening, and I'm not a fan of the morning. 

11: My favorite color to wear is black. I'm not Goth, or unchangeably evil, I just like the color. It works well with my skin tone, it matches everything (except brown), it's supposedly slimming, it's a very common color, and when done right, you can look like a ninja. Also, all my shoes are black or can be worn with black, except for a pair of brown heels I got at a yard sale.

12: I'm a procrastinator. I've been writing this post since mid-September and I finally came up with enough things to finish this.

13: My favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle is Donatello. I love them all, don't get me wrong, I just slightly prefer Donatello over the others. It's funny, because Donatello is the only turtle my brother and I agree on favoring. Actually, it's one of the few things we agree on. I also favor Raphael, along with Donatello.

14: I love to paint nails, though I don't paint mine. I don't keep my nails long either. I play a variety of instruments so having long nails doesn't help me. Even if I'm not playing, I still don't like to have my nails at any extensive length. But I do enjoy giving my mom manicures and pedicures. Nail art can be fun to do.

15: Orange soda is my favorite soda, though water is my favorite drink. My least favorite soda is grape (that stuff is nasty) and my least favorite drink in entirety is Cran-Raspberry juice. I don't like cranberry juice, and I don't like raspberries.

16: I love lip balm and lip sticks. I have a small drawer filled with a variety of organic and natural lip balms. I'm also big on weird lip stick colors. I just recently added a bright orange and a purple/fuchsia to my collection.  

17: I'm a coffee person. I abhor tea, which is a genetic abnormality in my family. Everybody loves tea but me. Coffee on the other hand, is a great thing. I love coffee.
