"Call on your power animal." "Come here!" "Do it in your mind."

Last night I ate more mexican food than I could have possibly dreamed of. The number of quesedillas and burritos is just insane. We had a little shindig at Chris and Erin's as a sort of "See ya later, Russell!" celebration (he's going to South Africa to film for a few weeks. Mexican food + friends = muy bueno times.

I've been working for the past seven days straight. I have Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday off, so I have plans to go to the beach with Katie and do something fun with Eb and Allison.

I finished doing online traffic school so that I won't get points from my dumb speed trap ticket. Online Traffic School is embarrassingly easy. Not that I mind.

Finally, I leave you with this: Thumbsucker. This movie is brilliant. I netflixed it, thinking that it would be mediocre but nicely filmed. I was so wrong. The directing is some of the best I've seen all year, the character developement is fast and meaningful, and the filming is beautiful. I highly reccomend it. I was pulled into the story from almost the moment it began, and the ending was redemptive wihout being forcedly resolved.

Seriously. Watch it this week.


Takin' it to the Streets

Thanks to these guys, I now have an insatiable thirst for smooth music. Tasty.


Welcome back, summer

Aaaaaand I'm done. With school. For the semester (yes, I should technically be graduating this year, but that whole transferring schools thing tends to throw in a kink or two).

It's 82 degrees out and I am going to the beach. Which I haven't done since pretty much October. My pale face needs some sun.

Last night I picked my friends Chris and Erin up from the airport. They were on vacation in Hawaii and San Fransisco (yeah, I was pretty jealous). Being at the airport made me really excited because Caleb and I are going to be flying from Orlando to Detroit on May 17th. My friend Jay is getting married that weekend, and we're going to hang out in Michigan for a few days. And I'm taking Caleb to Cedar Point, which has some of the best roller coasters in the world (and there are tons of them. It's pretty much going to be awesome.

My parents came down here for a couple of days last week. It was a lot of fun hanging out with them. I love my parents. We took a lot of pictures and did the "tourist thing", so I'll be posting them soon. Also, I know it says up there "new design coming in March" or whatever, and I'm very well aware that it is indeed the end of April. But It's been busy, what can I say. I have most of the redesign done--I'd like to try and get it up this week, but I'm not making any promises.

For now, I need to go hang out with the beach for awhile.


My love for You is always sure

Last night was "Dressed to Kill" at Marathon Monday. I went as Velma Kelly from Chicago (complete with pearls, gloves, and pistol). Dancing in heels is fun, but it's definitely harder. Next week it's back to Converse for me.

I just finished listening to some songs from Josh Ritter's new album, "The Animal Years." It's good. Real good, actually. The song "Lillian, Egypt" is about a silent film actress, and it's just beautiful.

Caleb will be here this weekend. And I'll be done with my classes (finals are next week, but I don't really have any--just two tests and a project). I can't really believe we get done this early. It's nice.

Next weekend is wedding time. I'm excited to see everyone (and to wear my new dress!).


Skies above can't be stormy / since that moment of bliss...

So last night I had a Real Good Time. I went with Erin to the Monday Night Marathon, a big dance party that a group of Flagler kids started having every Monday at Club Fusion. It was so much fun--I had no idea how enjoyable dancing was! It was also nice because everyone was being silly and they played good music, and there weren't any scary club skanks or manwhores. Whew. So I'm pretty much going to do that every Monday night from now on.

In other news, I'm registered for my fall classes:
Drawing II
Graphic Design II
Visual Communication I
Art History I

14 credits, should be good. I'm hoping that I'll have plenty of time to dedicate to drawing and graphic design.

Now I'm going to grill some salmon. Ciao.
