epiphany

so i've realized i NEED blogging and art and creativity back in my life. i've been consumed by technology and college and i miss this. i've had epiphany on top of epiphany and have been thinking a lot lately. ideas are brewing...going back to the basics. i've met a couple people that have inspired me...so thankful for that. everything happens for a reason and it's the right place and time.

this place is collecting dust. a place i used to love and cherish. expect changes soon if any of you are still following. the teenage years are coming to an end. time for something new.

happy wednesday

monday quote: trying to convince myself it's true

“what is the feeling when you’re driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? -it’s the too huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. but we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”

- jack kerouac

it's complicated


going home in 9 days. looking forward to home, the familiar and getting lost, but missing late night dorm dancing and ice cream with my new family.

snail mail


sending this out to alex.
i found the latest free people catalog in my mailbox today and immediately loved this image. alex and i always talk about crazy adventures we want to have together and ever since she was 12 years old she has been a native american for halloween. she wants to travel the world and experience different cultures. i loved our 4am tea party last summer and our late night walks or indian food dates. one of these days we will go zorbing for sure.

guess who is the proud new owner of a canon rebel xti......this guy. my dad bought a new camera and passed his down to me...vair excited.

my parents were in town this weekend to watch one of our home matches on friday. i asked my mom to bring me some art supplies cause i missed making stuff or whatever it is i do. she brought me some embroidery floss, paint, canvases and fabric scraps. i've had some ideas in my head, but keep hesitating for some reason. it has been so long since i have actually made anything and i'm afraid it won't turn out just as i picture in my head. guess the best way to start is the nike way and just do it. i hope to post things on etsy if i ever get around to making a desirable piece.

along with the art supply goodness, she brought me a new spring candle...lilac dandelion. i love it. i routined an angle food cake candle from anthro earlier this year. having a candle while i study is so relaxing.

i can't believe there are only 2 months left of my freshman year of college. time has flown by and it will only get faster from now on. the team and i are headed to las vegas for spring break in a week and i couldn't be more excited for some sunshine and a break.

happy sunday night.

hello random monday


it's raining. i have to study. listening to regina spektor. writing letters. drinking coffee.

i am going another week sans facebook and it is so refreshing. my friend changed my password for me and i cannot believe how much time i waste on it reading statuses and stalking pictures of people i don't even keep in touch with or really care what they are doing.

here is a monday quote for you:

"spend life with who makes you happy, not who you have to impress"

missing summer days sitting and reading in my backyard with music.

journal entry 1.09.11

I want to be the girl who listens to obscure indie rock bands, whose laugh is contagious. The girl who wears converse with her dads old sweaters. The girl who makes heartless boys fall in love. I want to be the girl who reads classic novels and keeps a journal of quotes. The girl that drinks tea in animal shaped mugs and occasionally eats Swedish fish for breakfast. I want to be the girl who doesn't care what other people think and embraces the imperfections in everyone.

Sorry for the silence. I think I'm going to make a come back. I miss this.
