hello week before finals...

I do not want to write this 15 page paper
I do not want to write this 15 page paper
I do not want to write this 15 page paper

I'd rather be sleeping
or watching a movie
or taking pictures
or snuggling
or even cleaning my room
anything but this

an education

bennett and i watched an education last night
which might just be my new favorite movie
carey mulligan was absolutely incredible
(as were the outfits she wore in every scene)
so if you haven't seen it yet
you definitely should soon.

hello 1997!

i came across this hilarious picture when i went home last night
and i just had to share it with you all.
i am in the blue night gown and ellen is in the pink one.
it is of new years, 1997
and we were rolling in the confetti we had just thrown
as the clock struck midnight
...and it looks like we might have had just a little too much apple juice?

in my photo class
we made pinhole cameras

and you can actually take pictures with it!

(you can make positives of the negatives which is why there are 2 of each)
