day sixteen

i've been pretty down lately, but today was the first good day i've had in a while. so, to keep myself in a good mood for days to come, i've compiled a list of good things.

things that make me happy:

· art - looking at it, talking about it, thinking about it. i love being an art student. today was my first day back in the art school, and there's work up and work being made. bliss.

· friends and family. i got to see my family over break, and i've been seeing friends since i got back.

· my name necklace - i really like my name. and this necklace that i got as a christmas gift to myself. (mynamenecklace.com)

· video games. over break i played ffx, wii sports, and borderlands.

south haven

· beaches. awesome even in the winter.

· records. i busted mine out yesterday and cranked out some tunes.

· books. i love reading but i usually don't have a lot of time to. i'm gonna try to change that.

the bedwel's fireworks
· fireworks. got to see 'em on new year's eve.

· movies. i watched tons over break, including 500 days of summer, amelie, and paris je t'aime.

· hello kitty. fa sho.

downtown kalamazoo

· christmas lights

· cooking! i've been trying out new recipes since i got back from break.

sewing a dress over break

· sewing. or knitting. or crocheting.

· and last but not least, this guy i'm seeing. his name's andy. 'nuff said.

day fifteen

last new year's fireworks

man i need to update this thing more often.

i've been feeling more and more like myself lately. for a while i thought i'd lost me.
does that ever happen to you?

i'm in a weird mood this evening. kind of nostalgic and kind of sad mixed with a little guilt for some reason. listening to death cab to help me feel better.

this mood reminds me of a poem i wrote a few summers back. it's about an almost relationship. i hope that scenario never happens again. it doesn't really have a title:

just one brush of humanity
one character on the machine
in the middle of your day
it was all just a feeling
some stars upon the rooftops
drinks with the fireflies

music music music was all you would say
and i never even noticed
too busy staring at your ears
i heard what i wanted to
read between my lines

through the mist i missed your throat
it's cleared up now but your music is gone
i would hold your hands and cry
but all i have is one touch from you
one character on the machine
lets me know it was all real

we could clear up this mess with some tea
and you wold thank me later
but you're too busy with virtual reality
and i'm stuck in outer space

but someday we'll play some chess
and maybe write a novel
it could be about music
and all of the stars

day twelve

dead fowl

i was running late this morning so i took a different way to class. i don't know what kind of bird this was, but it was big, and it somehow died like this. very peculiar.

day eleven

staging being lost in the woods

full day of classes today. haven't done much, but focused mainly on photo work. i did manage to do a study out in the woods. my focus right now is about being lost, so i needed to see what being lost really looks like.

i got a really good grade and feedback on my last critique. i feel good about my work and excited about where it's going.

good day.

day ten

chillin' with jackie, drinking pomegranate italian soda

had a strange day today, though i finally got my bridge card situated. i now recieve 200$$ a month for food from the government. so to celebrate, and to center myself, i cooked cheese enchiladas verde. never made enchiladas before, but it was so easy and i love them. vegetarian, of course.


the filling is garlic cream cheese, topped with a mixture of shredded zuccini, cheese, and cilantro. then they're wrapped up and covered with salsa verde. delish.

finished product. yumm
