Pros and Cons

I don't feel like writing in complete sentences or paragraphs, so I'm going to do a list of sorts. I'm feeling sick, it's early, and it's snowing outside...so I thought I'd change things up a bit!

Topic: Today
Pro: Campus closed due to inclement weather
Con: I'm sick

Topic: Staying home due to weather
Pro: I can get more work done
Con: Not going to feel like driving to the gym in the snow

Topic: Not driving to gym
Pro: Don't have to go out in super cold weather
Con: Less motivated to work out when at home

Topic: Reading other bloggers' comments on the 30 x 30 Remix Challenge
Pro: Getting different viewpoints and thinking about why I really want to participate
Con: Reconsidering whether I want to participate

Topic: Participating in the 30 x 30 (or in my case, 28 x 28)
Pro(s): Gets me to be creative; forces me to wear what I already have and focus less on shopping
Con(s): Causes me to ignore other clothes in my closet; the items I picked may not be appropriate for an expected event (since I picked mostly dressy work clothes and only a couple casual items)

Speaking of the remix challenge...I picked out my 28 items yesterday but after reading many comments on J's Everyday blog and having difficulty trying to pick only 28 items to wear for the month (not including accessories), I'm feeling kind of ambivalent about this challenge. I still plan on participating because I think it will be a good thing for me - to focus on some of the new items in my closet that I have not worn at all or not enough, and to get creative - but I'm a little worried about ignoring other clothes in my closet. However, if I am really honest with myself, I have to admit that I probably do the same thing anyway - focus on a few items and wear them over and over. At least for this challenge, I picked items that I have not worn much previously. I will participate as long as I can and try my best, but if I really need/want to wear something that is not part of the remix items, I will. Heck, I'm doing this for myself, already put my own twist on it, so I can make up my own rules. 

Okay, time for breakfast and then being productive on this snow day!
