i am going to live here one day

i have had this picture FOR-ever. I saved it without thinking and never knew who took it. during class i was browsing blogs like i shouldn't have been and had my breath taken away when i found a similar photograph. i went to her website and just like that she's on my favorites list, pretty close to the top. the two photos are a bit different but the same lovely room.

there are those who love to get dirty.

in english class on monday we read this poem; we do that a lot, read poems in english. but the second we finished i was stunned. i mean jaw-dropping, speechlessly stunned. i don't think there has ever been anything that has described me so exactly. weirder yet, it was written thirty-some years before i was born. and then it hit me: on page 516 was this poem made for me. on page 516, the date of my birth, there it was, for me.

"There are those
who love to get dirty"

There are those who love to get dirty
and fix things.
They drink coffee at dawn,
beer after work,

And those who stay clean,
just appreciate things,
At breakfast they have milk
and juice at night.

There are those who do both,
they drink tea.

positive overtones

for years i have been debating lip rings. i guess i had always felt bad ass enough that i was taking it into consideration. after five years of consideration, i think it's finally time. a friend and i made a pact that she would get a tattoo she has wanted for a long time and i would get my piercing the same day. i checked out this place called planet three and have gotten a few recommendations to go there. so today i checked it out- just checked it out- and i was all jittery and strung out, it was ridiculous. you would have thought i was about to sign my soul over to the devil. i know, i'm so dramatic. in a strange way it kind of calmed me about the whole affair but i'm glad my friend has a tattoo appointment so i have some time to prepare myself for the actual date.

i get these random bursts of creativeness. one moment i'm fine and choosing classes to take and then it takes me off on a tangent thinking about portfolios and business cards and places to shove my portfolio at and beg for an internship. i don't want to end up lifeguarding this summer, again.. doing nothing with my life or time. i don't think taking classes should just be enough. i need expereince, too. it's all a competition- i just have to start believing that i am better than everyone else and gain some confidence. i have some good shit, too.

smoking in the girls bathroom

i've noticed that in class i'm the only person who looks at the other kids. when the professor is talking, minus the one or two kids actually paying attention, everyone else is looking at their feet, flipping through the book, biting their nails, playing with their hair, picking their noses... i'm the only one that looks around the room and studies everyone's habits.
i'm thinking i need to go to Algebra when i get home.

my heart is made of jello and so is what's in my nose.

I woke up yesterday morning and sneezed at least five times an hour. Today the runny nose joined. I decided that some jello hearts and that crazy super bowl game would cheer me up. It looks pretty tasty next to the pile of used kleenex. But really, that was one hell of a game tonight.
