My love grows

Yesterday, my friend and I took a day trip to the city. It was great, as always! It just solidified my want to live there even more. We took the ferry from Staten Island over and it was a super cost effective way to do it! My favorite part of the day was putting my feet in the water at Washington Square Park. I only ever really go to NY in the Fall and Winter, so it was fun being there in 95 degree weather! We didn't really have solid plans, so we just kind of walked around and saw everything we wanted to see! It was nice to not be on a schedule. I love this city beyond words.

"I finally figured it out. It's like when they realized it was gonna be too expensive to actually build cyborgs and robots. I mean, the costs of that were impossible. They decided to just let humans turn themselves into robots. That's what's going on right now. I mean, why not? They're billions of us just laying around, not really doing anything. We don't cost anything. We're even pretty good at self-maintenance and reproducing constantly. And as it turns out, we're already biologically programmed for our little cyborg upgrades. I read this thing the other day about how When you hear that ding on your inbox, you get like a dopamine rush in your brain. It's like we're being chemically rewarded for allowing ourselves to be brainwashed. How evil is that? We're fucked."
-Mason, Boyhood (2014)
I haven't watched this movie in a few weeks. What's wrong with me?!

Yesterday I went to Hawk Mountain in PA! It was so amazing. The view was crazy! We got to the top of the mountain and ate our lunch with a view. We didn't hit any traffic getting there either, so it took a little less than 2 hours. I wish the trail was longer, but the view makes up for it!

P.S. It was alright. I wish I could have gone with just my friend, but her sisters love me so it's nice having someone else laugh at my jokes. Plus her mom drove so that saved me like $25 on gas ;)

I planned a hiking trip for my friend and I tomorrow! But I'm annoyed. She just told me that her mom and sisters are coming too. So instead of the 2 of us road tripping to a mountain and hiking up, I'm going to be packed in a car with 4 other people (2 complaining kids) and have to stay with her family while we're kept on a schedule to get to the top.
I'm just frustrated because I'm at the time in your life when you're supposed to be adventurous and no cares. I've been told that the Summer after your freshman year is the best and I want that to hold true. Her mom doesn't want us going off and doing things by ourselves and I feel like I'm aging in the opposite direction. Why should I do what a parent that's not even MY parent wants me to do?
I'm going to make the best of the day tomorrow but I had to type out my feelings. I'm in college and almost 20 - I just want to have spontaneous adventures with my friend, you know?
What are your thoughts? Hope you had an awesome day!

Little laugh

I know you've all probably heard of Amy Schumer... so funny! I have a love of comedians. They can just say anything and make you fall over laughing. I'm not going to lie -- as I was growing up, the most common compliment I got was that I was funny and it was kind of a dream to be a comedian. Anyway, here she is on Ellen. Have a laugh!

3rd year on Tumblr

My Tumblr turned 3 yesterday! I love Tumblr - it's just such a great place to share things. It's so great how there are funny blogs, photo blogs, story blogs, and so many more. Here are some of my recent posts..

Fall Lust

Per usual, I'm having some major Fall lust right now. I'm not sure why I get this way every Summer because I love warm weather, but there's just something about Fall that I will always love. You know? Anyway.. I'm going to enjoy Summer, but I'll still be super excited for Fall's arrival!
