Before and after
I love you and am planning to blog more in the near future. Please check the sidebar for the long list of projects that have been keeping me from you.
Soon my blog/reblog quotient will be much higher just the way I like it (and hopefully you will too)
For pretty much the first time ever besides changing my age and adding a link to youtube at some point.
Isn’t change terrifying?
Pretty sure yes.
Anyways this is what you used to be able to read about me:
Here lay the thoughts, dreams, memories, drawings, poems and inspirations of a 19 year old who likes books, string theory, colourful socks and laughter
I don’t have Twitter but I have YouTubez
And here is what you can now read about me:
Here lay the thoughts, opinions, artistic and scientific endeavors, anxieties, hopes, and inspirations of a 20 year old who likes books, evolving education, design, and ‘ah-ha’ moments.
Oh, and Etsy.
Big deal, right guys?
It has reached my attention I have yet to share my new glasses with the internets. Here they are, life is shifting from blue to green.
All dressed up for my interview at Deloitte today.
I loved working at WIN this term! We got these photos taken back when there was another co-op student working here too. I can’t believe it’s almost over!
The second picture is the result of my boss asking to see my ‘Gangsta pose’ so I just growled.
Anyways, definately some of the nicest photos I’ve had taken <3
Drop Everything And Read! Now there’s a day I can get behind!
I got new lipgloss (02 love goss shade: golden coral) and lipstick (14 coverglide lip colour shade: pink ginger) from the body shop today! My webcam approves 🙂
Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.
Zooey Deschanel (via a-terrible-mess)
I fall in love with things pretty easily. Books, music, tv, movies, people, artforms, history, science, poetry, everthing.
But oh man is this show brilliant. It is definitely my favorite.
And really, it’s easy to tell why, I mean, I love glee like crazy, and what it stands for and the type of characters and issues they’re showing on like, popular tv, it’s awesome. But I mean, I’m not in the show, there’s no one there who I can say, that’s how I feel and what I act like and what I could plausibly be like some day.
Maybe in some ways I am more clueless and less clueless than Jess, and I’ve been thinking more and more about teaching high school, rather than middle school, and hopefully I won’t ever fall for someone just because of their hair, but I mean pretty much other than that she’s the closest character to myself I’ve ever seen in tv or movie. I mean, I wish I could say it was Hermione Granger, but what smart girl doesn’t wish that, and I don’t think she embodies me quite as much. And with books there are many characters I relate too and see parts of myselves in, I would have to sift through a lot of memories to see if there’s a clearer vision of me in there somewhere.
But New Girl, wow, it just makes me so happy. My quirky, whimsical, hopeful inner workings are remarkably Jess-like. Maybe that’s why it makes me so happy to watch it. She influences lives the same way I try to.
I could blather on forever about this, so this is it.
If you want to watch me play ukulele somewhat poorly/impressively for how long I’ve had a uke and make funny faces as I sing, then this is the video for you!
