oh, friday

i am very very sorry for the lack of posts
please forgive me.
i am going to the flea market tomorrow!
if i can remember, i'm also going to bring along my camera
so hopefully i'll be posting some more photos soon
and i am really just loving my apartment
i could sleep all day in my new huge comfy bed
and i think i'm going to start an etsy shop to sell my artwork
but i don't know when so i'll keep you posted
and my the air conditioning in my car broke
as well as one of my headlights
so that really sucks
but mostly i'm just completely in love
with my favorite person in the whole world

a beach list

the beach is my favorite because
  • nothing feels better than the warm summer sun against your skin
  • the sound of the ocean is hypnotizing
  • it's ok if you get sand stuck all over you and everything else because there's no way to avoid it
  • i hate sweating, and the ocean is like a giant sweat eraser
  • the smell of sunscreen
  • sunsets are so much more beautiful
  • the salt water does wonders for my hair
  • freckles

welcome home

i love my new apartment.

Friday, June 12, 2009

for the record...

i don't read near as many books as i should
repetitive noises drive me crazy
i have far too many fears
some of those fears are nonsense like E.T. and horses
i am extremely sensitive
i don't like thinking about how complicated things work
or the end of the world
or infinity
i hate sleeping
actually i hate the process of trying to fall asleep
i really don't like crowds or parties
i like to think that dinosaurs aren't actually dead

date night

i should be doing my homework
(darn summer class)
but instead i decided to share my pictures from my date tonight.
(i hate it when benn takes pictures of me which explains why i'm hiding)

bennett and i went to movies in the park
where we happened to stay just long enough to run into the lovely chelsey
then left because of bennett's allergies and my belly which needed a hamburger happy meal from mcdonalds.

i love bennett
and movies
and parks
and friends
and mcdonalds
and summer time
but mostly i just really love bennett and i'm so glad he's back.

3 days till apartment!

helping bennett move into his apartment has made me SO excited about moving into mine on friday. i just finished getting all the essentials (mattress, comforter, kitchen supplies, etc.) so now all i have to do is wait. bennett and i are supposed to go to movies in the park tomorrow night for a date but the weather isn't looking so good. any ideas for a fun alternative?

i am so glad to have him back.

the go-getter

zooey deschanel is absolutely adorable in the go-getter
i wouldn't mind being her best friend

i was going to post this tomorrow...

but i just can't wait. today at goodwill i found a long skirt that i made into a dress. it's my favorite. plaid with ducks at the bottom. the best part? it was only $1.

old photographs

here are some old photographs that i just love. the first four are of my grandparents, together and then with some of their siblings/friends. the last two photos are of my parents. one is from their wedding and the other is one my dad took when they started dating. they are both so attractive. enjoy.

just 4 more sleeps...

don't forget to floss

tonight i was talking to bennett on the phone and i was just so warm and sleepy and comfortable in my bed that i didn't want to get up and brush my teeth. so he told me that it would be okay if i skipped tonight. i tried and tried to fall asleep but i started feeling so guilty that i just had to get up and brush them. now i can't fall asleep and all i want to do is call bennett so he can tell me goodnight again and remind me of all the wonderful things we're going to do together this summer when he gets back. but i can't because he's sleeping and that would be selfish of me. ugh.

wouldn't it be nice if every day was just a summer day in italy?

some things on my mind

some things on my mind. i am attempting to make a dress out of an old pillowcase and a tank top...and no pattern. i ate too many gobstoppers today. i am so excited about working tomorrow because i love paletas and i don't like sitting around at home alone. i really need to get an oil change. every time i think of up it makes me want to cry. my window sill is covered with dinosaurs. they keep watch at nighttime and make sure i'm safe. when i was little i thought t-rex lived at the head of my bed and e.t. lived at the foot. e.t. scares me more than anything. i really need to stop biting my fingernails. i really miss bennett a lot. 6 more days...

blue lips

bennett and i just watched this video together
and by together, i mean we were on the phone with each other and on the count of 3 we pushed the play button at the same time.
she is so wonderful.
thank you regina, for making beautiful music for my ears

je n'aime pas

i don't particularly like...
  • being the only one in my house awake
  • crowds
  • the feeling of scratching your fingernails against fabric (or as i call it, having fabric fingers)
  • driving
  • being alone
  • how nighttime makes everything worse and scarier
  • my knees touching when i sleep
  • going to the doctors
  • fancy food
  • being cold
  • packing
  • unpacking
  • excessive rain
  • having to get up and brush your teeth when you're already warm in bed
  • waiting
