who goes to shows
and when they're over
he blows his nose
he don't use tissues
or his sleeve

Sorry I haven't posted in ages...college trips and general confusion have been stealing my life away like a pirate steals booty. Um. Anyway.
start spreadin the newzzz
NYU was pretty awesome. I dunno if I'm going there though...my life is as murky with indecision as a glass of Nesquick. Right now it's between NYU and another school...
I really did not get a good impression from the panel of admissions people who assembled to talk to us accepted students =p I did get a good impression from the actual students and professors though. Maybe I just don't like admissions people.
I know it's a long shot, but if anybody reading this is an NYU student, please email me or leave a comment! I really didn't have an in-depth conversation with a student about the school...just light chitchat. I'd love to have an actual student's point of view, as I'm having a really hard time deciding what's right for me.
HAAAAAAAA AND AND AND I did get to go to Topshop!!!! Total surprise. I didn't think my parents would let me go, but suddenly, out of the blue and after our tour, my dad asked me:
"Hey, what's the name of that store that you were shrieking to me about a week ago?....Stopshop?"-Dad
"Yeah, yeah, that...where is it?"-Dad
"Uh...Broadway and Broome?"-Me
*howl of joy*-me
This may be old newz, no big deal, regular butter and bread to some of you lucky people who are within 10 min of a store, but as I haven't been to one in 3 years...and the one in NY just opened about 2 weeks ago....BIG DEAL 4 ME =D
So these jeans I'm wearing in the picture are some I got from Topshop...I've loved high waisted skirts for a while now and recently have graduated to high waisted skirts, but I was a bit skittish about the style in jean form...but I tried these on and fell in lurv <3
Me having fun in the hotel. The bed was disappointingly un-bouncy, which is the first quality I look for in a mattress.
The week before last I was visiting another college, which was ohhh kayy... surprisingly, I did like the area it was in though. Kinda the complete opposite of NYC. The sky was up to some weird shit
I love rainy days
The best kind is either a complete storm, or a day when the sky can't seem to decide whether it's going to be dark or sunny.
I love being on the road. I love traveling. One of the things I want to do most before I die is just get in my car and drive for hours. I don't know if I want anyone to come with me or not. But I would drive and drive and when I felt tired I would stop and sleep, and when I was hungry I would stop and find something good to eat, and when I saw something beautiful I would stop and take a picture of it.
It's a bit frightening right now that I don't know where I'm going to be a year from now...what I'll be doing, who I'll be friends with. It's scary in a good way, but that doesn't make it any less frightening to me. It's like life just yawned and woke up and checked out my life and thought "Hm, better change things up a bit all at once."
My reading material doesn't help much right now either...just finished Fight Club, and finished The Fountainhead a while ago...both books that really make you look at your life and what you're doing. I'm trying to figure out how I see the world right now, and how I see myself in it. But whatever I'll do, I will have a camera and my notebook and my friends. And hopefully a good sushi place =p haha.
My parents have been hinting that I should focus on a practical, business oriented job...once I have that settled, I can spend time on things like art and writing. But I want to be proud of my job, and to do what I love.
So I figure as long as I do that, I'm doing okay.
