At 5:30 my body just WOKE UP! So, somehow I am already up and runnin', doing Stat homework an hour later at 6:30 in the morning. Slow down, brain!

Look, I've traveled so much already today! Today will be fine!

Today is a rare day and I actually don't have work after school! I love that job, but I really need the study/reading time, so I am pleased.


I am realizing that this is an issue. I am at school wearing sweats and a $5 t-shirt I bought in a sale bin in Japan. Apparently I only put outfits together for work. I was thinking I was actually dressing nicely. MISTTAAAAAKE.

I value comfort. And breakfast.

Subaru, My One and Only

My Subaru is nearing the end of its life I fear. Why is my baby leaking coolant AND oil?! Why does the cruise control light not work anymore? Why is the front left speaker busted?

I've pulled the codes on that thing several times and apparently there's something wrong with the catalytic converter. My knowledge of fixing cars does not extend to the catalytic converter.

Now I will dream of Subarus...

READ Tina Fey's book "Bossypants"! I am assuming all have ALREADY READ IT, but if not it is super hilarious and is a great escape if you will be on a plane for a couple hours. Or if you just want to read it. BLERG! I want to go to there!

I Choose...

I choose to look at the positive!
There are many things (other than school) to stress out about right now, but I choose to focus on all the amazing things I've got going on. 

Keep on keepin' on!

Today is QUICKLY/already has

turned into a multiple-cups-of-coffee kind of day. Shouldn't food and sleep be giving me that daily energy naturally?! I am only fueled by a couple hours of sleep, a REALLY WEIRD GRAINY BRAN MUFFIN, and coffee. I feel that I should not be drinking coffee at 20...perhaps it is alright, but I get the feeling that I should wait until I'm a grad student or something. BUT, I have a new coffee tumbler that I am SUPER EXCITED about (for some reason).

Also, Microsoft is buying Skype?! They better not start charging...I would be even more broke.

K, time to **** today's ****! Wassap!

Tracey Emin

Neon lights by Tracey Emin. I tried to find as many pictures of these as I could- aren't they fantastic?! The rest of her art is also really NEAT.

We Got The Sun Shinin' Down

Just had delicious luleh kabobs and Thai iced tea! And this group is so perfect right now. WHY do I have 6 weeks left of school?! ... :(
We got the sun shinin' down,
Singing tit for tat,
And that's that.
And that's what?
And that's that.

And the Blogotheque version

MV Time!

THESE ARE...AMAZING! As I sit here in an empty Japanese community center classroom in industrial Sun Valley (did not get the memo about no class), I have become overwhelmed with the urge to put these videos up. I can take it no longer! Maybe it's all the coffee I'm drinking on an empty stomach. Or maybe I just really like these music videos.

And I'm pretty sure the elders from the Community Center are in the classroom next to me watching videos of festivals. So much taiko noise. And I really wanna peek in there, because (I AM NOT SURE, BUT...) I think someone is intermittently playing a flute. Not coming from the TV, but live flute.

Starbucks Sightings

"I'm anti-corporate America," says the man sitting in a Starbucks. He then went on to talk about his Wells Fargo account.

I'm a slow motion accident
Lost in coffee rings and fingerprints
Oh darling,
In a sky full of people, only some want to fly.
Isn't that crazy?
In a world full of people, only some want to fly.
Isn't that crazy?
In a heaven full of people, only some want to fly.
Isn't that crazy?
In a world full of people, only some want to fly.
Isn't that crazy?

My Clique Should Be Cancelled- Freaks & Geeks

CHILDISH GAMBINO...This guy is (was?) in a comedy group called Derrick Comedy (he's on Community now) and I used to LOVE Derrick Comedy in high school. So funny. Anyways, apparently he's a rapper, too?! He's amazing. I can't stop listening.

Tell 'Em Hey

Christian, you may see me only as a drunken, vice-ridden gnome whose friends are just pimps and girls from the brothels. But I know about art and love, if only because I long for it with every fiber of my being. 

Perfect Sunday

Perfect Sundaaayyyy, studying and drinking coffaaayyyyy. As always, there is a blue, sunny, cloudless sky.

Only problem- Why are the words "Ramanuja's Qualified Non-Dualistic Vedanta Focuses Upon the Worship of Vishnu" written on my study guide...? The bhakti marga of Hinduism has got my brain in a tumble.

I have achieved goal of purchase of zebra shirt.
Next goal is to purchase this AMERICAN FLAG SHIRT. I have seen many an American flag-print shirt, BUT...this one is SHEER.
And this pleases me!

OK, back to actual things.

Number two on the list of REASONS TO BECOME VERY WEALTHY.

Number one being so I can buy all the delicious food in the world and become obese. Well, number one is actually so I can just travel around the world for my entire life, but EATING ALL THE FOOD OF THE WORLD goes along with traveling everywhere and is basically 50% of the experience.

Eating delicious food is always number one on my list. (Honestly, I am easily impressed by food, though, so many many things are delicious to me.)

But NUMBER TWO is so I can walk into stores like Free People and buy all these little things. I really only have like three or four favorite stores and they're all just a LITTLE BIT above my price range. I do not care for designer stuff. Too much of a waste of money. But I CARE FOR FREE PEOPLE.

And WHAT IS GOING ON AT 0:19?! So pretty and amazing :) AM I RIGHT?!

My Desk :) day I decided to get rid of my bed and get a futon instead. MEANING...I basically sleep on the ground and fold this thing up "every" morning. Once I started sleeping on the ground, my previous desk started looking REALLY tall and I was thinking, "HEY, this thing is very large. I should get rid of it and replace it with a nice low desk so I can sit on the ground instead." So I got rid of my desk. And never got that nice, new low one.

PROBLEM IS, I use Skype a lot and I have NOWHERE TO PUT MY LAPTOP. So I have fashioned this pile of books and shoeboxes to put my laptop on. I have used this "desk" for the past 6 months or so and I am coming to the realization that the longer I use this pile of whatever and accept it, the more and more ghetto my room is becoming. Bahahah WHAT? WHY?

This is what it looks like. I LOVE PRETZELS so there is a bowl of pretzels and some water up there. Usually there is a laptop on top. I must say, is VERY STURDY despite looking like it's about to all topple over.

I am gearing up for Appreciation at Anthro, becaaauuuseeeee...I can't afford anything unless it's during Appreciation. It's Appreciation at Urban right now, though, and THAT is PLEASING. Minus the Urban that I work right next to is SHOOPAH SHTINY. Vat is even more exciting is that Appreciation for Anthro is happening while I am in Oregon. Which means I actually get my FULL DISCOUNT because I don't have to pay 10% tax like I pay HERE in the STATE OF CALIFORNIA. NO SALES TAX IN OREGON! :D How wonderful is that?! :)

See the rest here.
I have picked my favorites. Bahah! K, not funny, but here they are.
Where did God go wrong...
by NOT PUTTING an artistic bone in my body.
