without fail!

the only true constant in my life is that i will inevitably get sick right before or directly following finals. and not the "sleep it off- three day" kinda sick, but the kinda sick where you feel shitty for like a month. i thought it was allergies but my throat says otherwise. bummer. I hope I feel better before graduation dress shopping with camilla's grandma on tuesday:)

Feliz Cinco De Mayo

i feel like cinco de mayo is the most misunderstood holiday it is definitely NOT Mexican independence day which is September 16th as i learned when that man broke in to my apartment drunk on the real Mexican independence day. it is like the day when the people in the southwest announced themselves Mexican Americans... or something. however just like everyone is Irish on St Patty's day the amount of fake Mexicans abounds today in Chicago! also i sat next to a man drinking tequila out of a dunkin donuts coffee cup on the bus:) VIVA MEXICO!

Heavy Meadow

i have a newfound love for dolly parton?!
annie get ready for a south dakota/montana playlist for the central stretch of our roadtrip chalk full of some dolly
also since i just came up with this brilliant idea right now while typing i think that some serious mix making is in order in correlation to the vibe of the states we will be passing and when we cross state lines we have to have a whole new set of mixes so that every states feels completely different!!!
so i think dolly goes on my south dakota mix as she is a gentle soul and belongs in quiet South Dakota with Mount Rushmore and the fundamentalist mormon temple of Pringle South Dakota (prime example of a pretentious documentary fact) i have some more antler enthusiast, gun totting , raised truck inspired jams in mind for Montana
cant wait

also when did they stop using that rad close up profile view layered on top of far away frontal view in musical performance videos i toally dig it!!!

what lies behind your eyes?

in my procrastination tactics i stumbled upon an 8th grade favorite quizilla :) a good 30 minutes of fun: finding that my rapper nickname should be nuffing, my lipgloss flavor is sour apple and what lies behind my eyes is this rad picture!!! and peace i guess. i need to get outta this city! everything is old news i am feeling antsy, that coupled with my lack of funds for having fun, my parents stressing me out with their travel plans for my graduation and my future lyfe plans hanging midair somewhere in the near or far future of email or postage mail in world have me obsessively checking me email and the mailbox and watching a shit ton of biglove.
oh have i not mentioned i am in love with biglove and wish i had costumed it and attributed to its greatness this may be due to the fact that while at home on my parents big comfy couch over spring break i may or may not have become addicted to the show sister wives on tlc, i cant help it TLC GETS ME EVERYTIME whether it is an hour long special on primordial dwarfism or a show about baby beauty competitions i can not look away, it may be due the fact that i self proclaimedly will watch a documentary about ANYTHING! really unless it has a gag factor that i cant handle i will pretty much be hooked
or maybe it is because i am nosey or maybe i truly care about things and am truly interested in lyfe ? nope i bet i am just nosey and love pulling those annoying pretentious random facts out in groups of people. which led to Sohui and i watching a half hour of primordial dwarfism youtube videos in the costume shop on tuesday :/

bah sorry yes biglove so good
also who knew the bump-it and braid hairdo is the tell tale sign of fundamentalist polygamist mormon women?!?
kinda love it kinda hate it the height of some of the bumpits on the show get a little outta hand

mah nose

my nose ring /thing/ stud fell out the other day when i was watching psych in my room! and i finally got to change it no pliers, two string men needed and/or eye/ face injuries involved! i thought that i would have to grow old with that earring back in my nose i had dealt with the fact and run the slideshow of my life growing old with a nose stud from when i was 20 years old looking hip with the nose stud in my future came with its share of no serious jobs only long white hair and crazy southwest inspired jewelry that, or i was gonna move to an indian neighborhood where an old lady aint judged!

but alas it did not come to either of those scenarios HOWEVER ... i did have to go to the most awful store with the most awful music to buy a new nose stud there was a man getting a barbed wire tatto and the woman who helped me wore an awful coraline inspired( i am sure) maroon wig however nose stud retreived and my future looks bright

Back to the Future

i love everything about this project! its called "back to the future" by a photographer named irina werning and it recreates old family photos. it reminds me a bit of the project i did at oxbow and makes me want to start using my camera again SO bad maybe when i go home for spring break i will retrieve it however bringing it back to frozen tundra is prolly an awful idea another reason snow blows my list is getting bigger
