expensive art

ok so whenever i can't think of anything to post, i usually go to Stumble Upon, and then i find really interesting things to post! here's one of many examples.

here are some of the most expensive paintings! click here to see more. i found this really neat!

 1) Les Noces de Pierrette by Pablo Picasso - $84.9 million

2) False Start by Jasper Johns - $85.9 million

3) Triptych, 1976 by Francis Bacon - $86.3 million

4) Irises by Vincent van Gogh - $101.2 million

5) Portrait of Joseph Roulin by Vincent van Gogh - $100.9++ million

6) Woman III by Willem de Kooning - $147.9 million

7) No. 5, 1948 by Jackson Pollock - $150.6 million

isn't that crazy?! the 6th and 7th pictures get me because they seem so simple, but they are worth SO much! and i put 2 Van Gogh pictures in here because he was the artist i chose during my drawing class to make my drawings like his paintings. like in the 5th picture, you can see how he uses a lot of patterns in the background. that's what i did for my independent project! i drew a portrait and then put many patterns in the background. cool right?! ok that was my nerd moment.

have a good week!

tattoo topic

 i found this blog and she has this thing called Tattoo Tuesday, and it's really interesting! people show their tattoos and talk about them. i actually got stuck on it for awhile. it kind of inspires me to one day in the future get a small tattoo. not my whole arm or anything!

here's pictures of just a few from that site:

funny beiber

has anyone seen this video? haha i saw this gif for it on tumblr. it's actually pretty funny, so i thought i would share :) it's on funnyordie!

oh p.s! today i brought my iPod into the Apple store and they were so soo nice, and replaced it for free! i unfortunately didn't back it up with all my apps and stuff, but whatever, haha my words with friends game is still here! i got so mad and it all turned out fine :) i'm too dramatic. but if it wasn't able to be fixed, i would have had a freak attack.

but today i was having a really good day until about an hour ago, when i hit my head. now i have a large bump on my forehead. i obviously don't have very good luck. owww it hurts

iPod :(

i was stupid today.

you know those times you wish you could just rewind time like 5 minutes?! i wish i could have done that today. i freaking left my ipod on the table at the pool and my friends brother and his friend starting messing around with it and they spilled water on it. FML right now. it's all messed up and won't work and my dad says it's going to be better if we just take it to the Apple store and they will do something to fix it. but it's not getting better right now because the screen is all effed up and it's being really stupid. i really really really hope that it works.

i love my ipod so much and this really sucks. i was having a great week until this happened. why does stuff like this always happen to me?! ughughughugh i just wish i never brought it and this would have never happened. i have been playing words with friends with this one lady for literally like 4 months and it was great, and now that's done. just the other day i got a new game that was really addicting, and now that's done. i also had a game, and i was on like level 25, now that's done.

i have no idea if it will get fixed or not, but until we go, i will be very sad. i know i'm being really dramatic with this, but i love that ipod soo much! and of course we go on a road trip to the beack in like 3 weeks. if it is ruined, i can't get another! i don't have that kind of money! :( i wish i could see a positive side of this, but i'm a debby downer and can't. i use that ipod every sing day, and now i freaking can't.

dear lord, please let it be fixed. i'm gonna go cry some more now.

just a few more

pictures from gmeador, on flickr
i can't seem to get enough of these link posts. i had a few links in mind and i thought instead of mentioning them in something else, i'll just make another post. ok well that didn't make a lot of sense but here we go! haha

i've been really into Sperrys recently (i don't have a pair, but i would love some!) and i have my eye on these

don't you love reading a blog and feeling like your jumping into the life of someone else?! i do! and this blog is just one of the many!

did anyone see the first degrassi?? it.was.awesome. if you haven't - watch it here!!
they are now showing a new episode every monday-thursday! but i will have a lot of catching up to do because i usually watch it with my friend Alexandra, but since she's moving to China, she has a lot to do these next 2 weeks and my dad hogs our only tv with that channel. wahh wahh :/ i'll have to have a degrassi marathon with my friend abby (who, by the way, gets back in about 2 weeks!!)

oh! and while i'm at it - check out the giveaway going on at April, Maybe! she has 200 followers and is celebrating with a giveaway!
hopefully i will get up there in followers one day and be able to have giveaways!

According to Greta


last night i watched According to Greta with some friends and it was really good! it stars Hilary Duff and it takes place in a really cute town.

Greta makes a journal of all the things she wants to do before she dies, and she also makes a list of the ways she will kill herself when she turns 18. she is forced by her mom to move in with her grandparents for a little bit so her mom can work out her 3rd marriage. when Greta gets a job at a restaurant, she meets a guy named Julie and he teaches her that she can't play around with death because it's serious and it effects others.

there are some other little quirky things, but i really liked that movie - and you can watch it instantly on Netflix! check it out and see what she does in the end! :)

a successful day indeed

today was a good day, i would say! it was a sucessful mail day because i got a letter from my dearest abby, from camp, MY HOT CHELLE RAE (big time rush) TICKETS, and a letter from my cousin. one of the very few days i actually go out, open the mailbox, and get the mail myself was awesome. i love the feeling of getting mail!

next, my mom highlighted my hair! which was mostly cool because i like change, and it looks pretty good :)

and while i'm talking, i'll show you my awesome tye dye i'm so very proud of! last week my friends and i did tye dye and i really wasn't sure how it would turn out because i didn't think i did it right, but i lovelove it!

hope you're having a good week!

slowing down

i was looking on my summer list, and i realize i'm kind of slacking. i need to pick it up a little. haha! i mean the main stuff i need to do is 1.) be a vegitarian 2.) watch Harry Potter! sadly i'm only on like the second movie because i get them sent from Netflix and my dad wants to watch them too and 3.) make macaroons. the rest, should really be easy!

this summer is just flying by! and i'm SO busy in August, so i don't think i can do any of this then.

Greece has some really beautiful sunsets, huh?! pictures from Paradasos, on flickr :)

well how was your weekend?

the tickets

the other day, i got my Hot Chelle Rae tickets!! (they are actually Big Time Rush tickets, but Hot Chelle Rae is opening for i'm just calling them Hot Chelle Rae tickets haha!) i'm really excited about it but they are in the grandstand :( they are the worst seats in the place. we aren't off to the side or anything, but still. here's a seating chart for the concert:

i know what you're thinking. that's not bad at all. but i went there for David Cook and we sat there, and it was.. fine. this means i have to wear my glasses though - or else i can't see them. but whatever! the opening acts usually do meet and greets! so that would be really really awesome!

and at least i don't have seats like this:

my cousin went to see Lady Gaga (jealous.)

it's fine.
