"We have nothing to fear"

This speech made me feel marginally less miserable after yesterdays vote.  

Thank you Diane!

I want me some boots

A boy I went to school with was photographed for by the Sartorialist.  And as indicated by the comments section his outfit is pretty polarizing.

For me I always loved that Jesse experimented with the mainstream and margins of fashion.  This outfit doesn't really do him justice, but I'm glad Mr. Schuman spotted him anyways.  I don't think there is any denying the boy has got style.

Damn you women, and your expensive boobs and vaginas.

Things to remember:
-gray november can be fun too
-don't put off today what you should have done yesterday
-call your friends
-make time to eat
-wash your sheets


Not that I think I'm changing, but I'm growing. This semester is challenging me in ways I didn't think this school could.

One Art

The art of losing isn't hard to master 
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster: 
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, 
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied, it's evident
The art of losing isn't too hard to master
Though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

--Elizabeth Bishop

Looking on the bright side

to be happy about:
-new books
-old friends
-having my car
-cooking my own meals (cookbook suggestions?)
-beautiful summer/fall weather

Back at school

It shouldn't have taken me so long.  Sometimes its nice to have a long internet break.

I'm a senior.  And that in so many ways is similar to being a freshman, nerve racking, exciting and promising. I miss my old friends though.

I want to go to the beach

I want to play with my friends in the waves, be sunkissed, and read a nice book.
