After a very long pause, blogging again feels almost like a diary of sorts. Lots of things have changed. Ma recherche d'un logement est terminée pour aujourd'hui. With house-hunting and settling down resolved, je vis dans une auberge. La chambre que j'ai occupée is small, but large enough for now.
Aside from practicing my near-east languages, learning some statistical techniques, getting better at my job, maintaining all of my crucial relationships over long distances, increasing data-work speed, figuring out the shortest commute, indoor gardening, and copious travel... well, the train of thought has left the station.
Here are these pants that have become routine on non-work days. Frankly, I think they work for my office, where, even supervisors, wear tank tops and lace tights. I would wear them if certain colleagues were busy enough with their own matters to measure me with the same stick as they do everyone else. I think that the top makes the pants less rock& roll.
If I were left with only 6 items of clothing again, like the "6 Items or Less" challenge, this blouse and shoes would certainly be included.
As much as I love these pants, they would be excluded because work happens 1/3 of my waking hours, on about 70% of my days.
Je pense que je devrais create a uniform of silk blouses, knits, and trousers. With a button down and some ankle boots here and there.
