Good Morning

I love this picture by Monzzik on Flickr. Morning light on the ocean is so pretty and she captured that so well, with film even!

Happy Saturday morning! I'm in a positive mood today and I don't know why. I mean, I'm usually happy, but on Saturdays at school I'm usually not just because I'm usually annoyed with all the drunkies around and there isn't anywhere to go but campus so I get frustrated. I'm sitting here in the union on my computer doing homework at 11 am and I'm getting happy about all the exciting things in my future. I'm excited that this is (hopefully) my last semester at this school because I'm (hopefully) going to transfer (I turned in the application and am just waiting to hear back).
The other day I was sitting with my art therapy friends and I started to think, is this what I want? To leave these friends that I've become so close with behind? All the clubs I've joined. All the experiences I've had. Do I want to leave all that to start over completely at another school? Ultimately, I said yes. I feel that if I'm so confident to leave all of that behind, I'm really ready.
So I'm prepared to make the most of this last (hopefully) semester. I'm going to take in all the fun times with my friends and go to all my club activities because in a few short months I'll (hopefully) be starting a new chapter in life in a new city.
Hope your Saturday is filled with happiness!
P.S. The weather is getting chillier! Yay, Fall!

The pictures are from my hike at Hawk Mountain back in July.

"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

Have you heard this song? I actually feel like it describes my life perfectly right now, it's kinda weird.
Alessia Cara
I'm sorry if I seem uninterested
Or I'm not listenin' or I'm indifferent
Truly, I ain't got no business here
But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it but really
I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
With people who don't even care about my well-being
I don't dance, don't ask, I don't need a boyfriend
So you can go back, please enjoy your party
I'll be here, somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana
With this boy who's hollering I can hardly hear
Over this music I don't listen to and I don't wanna get with you
So tell my friends that I'll be over here

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
An anti-social pessimist but usually I don't mess with this
And I know you mean only the best and
Your intentions aren't to bother me
But honestly I'd rather be
Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message (like we usually do)
And we'll discuss our big dreams
How we plan to take over the planet
So pardon my manners, I hope you'll understand
That I'll be here
Not there in the kitchen with the girl
Who's always gossiping about her friends
So tell them I'll be here
Right next to the boy who's throwing up cause
He can't take what's in his cup no more
Oh God why am I here?

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

Hours later congregating next to the refrigerator
Some girl's talking bout her haters
She ain't got none
How did it ever come to this
I shoulda never come to this
So holla at me I'll be in the car when you're done
I'm standoffish, don't want what you're offering
And I'm done talking
Awfully sad it had to be that way
So tell my people when they're ready that I'm ready
And I'm standing by the TV with my beanie low
Yo I'll be over here

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

Comforting Songs

I'm hesitant to listen to new songs; I'm really not sure why because it only takes 3 minutes! Here are some songs you may or may not know - these songs always seem to comfort me.

Noah and the Whale / 5 Years Time
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros / Home
Holocene / Bon Iver
White Winter Hymnal / Birdy
Breathe Me / Sia
What about you?

Happy Monday

I read something the other day that really made me think:
The most dangerous risk of all - the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.
I feel like this really applies to me right now. I'm constantly telling myself that "next year will be better" and "When I make it through this point in my life, it'll get better". I really need to think about that and turn things around. Why am I waiting for the future to have a life that I really love? That's why I really thinking about my life now and making the changes I want to in order to live the best life I can.
Are you doing everything to live the best life you can? Think about it :)

"The world fascinates me" -Andy Warhol

Just incase you're in need of a little inspiration on this lazy Sunday :)

Friday, September 11, 2015


My posts have been pretty wordy lately, but I guess that's what happens when a new school year starts, haha! So here's another one.
I'm so weird. I thought that I loved change, but lately I'm feeling like that's completely the opposite. Maybe it's the school I'm at? Maybe it's the people I'm with? Have you ever felt this way?

The same thing happened last year and the year ended up going really fast, but I feel like overall, I'm just not happy where I am. A bunch of my friends at my school are transferring and it's so crazy to me because I was going to transfer last year. This year I'm thinking harder about it and I want to actually experience things. I'm stuck on this campus and I feel like I' not doing anything with my life. I think I really want to look into something so that I'm not wasting another whole year. Plus, I'm overall tired and annoyed with the people I'm around. I like to do things by myself most of the time and here there is just no place to get away.

I'm completely stuck in a rut and am not sure what to do but my gut is telling me to do it. I found another school that really excites me and I also really just want to leave the school that I'm at right now. What are your thoughts? Should I do what my gut says or research more first?

Hope your Friday is a great one.

Have you seen these pictures from 1913 by photographer Mervyn O’Gorman?! It's so weird seeing such old pictures in color. They look like they could have been taken this year with a film camera! I read an article that said he used potato starch to make the colors some to life. The pictures are apparently of his daughter - over 100 years later and still circulating for people to see.
Have an awesome Thursday!

Thankful for:

Ok, so, I talk about my journal a lot. In my journal every now and then I'll write a page with just things I'm thankful for at that particular moment. I feel like I've written a post like this before, have I? Well, anyway. Here are a list of some things that I'm thankful for on this hot September day...

Catfish: The TV Show

A wide open future

The feeling that nothing is permanent

New beginnings


Art studios

Lucille Ball


Snail mail

Cold showers

Staying in at night

What are YOU thankful for?

Have a great day!

It's crazy that it's finally September! That means it's basically Fall, right?
But seriously, Fall is my absolute favorite season. I'm really not a fan of the cold, but Fall is different. Yes, it can be annoying to want to dress all warm and cozy while it's still 70 out, but that's not the point. The smells, the colors, the drinks, the food. Fall is the best!


Perfect :’)

Autumn is Coming. 🍁
(Side note: aren't rainy, Fall days the very best?!)
