just a little update...I hate mondays (but love you!).

Listening to: Yoko Kanno - Cyberbird

Today was a pleasent first day back from Tofurkey break. The cafe food wasn't totally horrible, I randomly got paid $20, I talked a lot in class and I found out that writing my 15 page paper beofre next Tuesday may not be as hard as it sounds. Michael came in my room and made me hot cocoa and I treated myself to some lovely nail polish that was on sale. So far, so good.

Just thought I would start something new...I thought that maybe, to keep up with my blog, things that I find lovely. I know a lot of other bloggers do this and that it's nothing original, but it will be a good way for me to not leave my blog behind months at a time :P so, I will begin my new posts entitled: I Hate Mondays (but I Love You!).

1. Raf TMNT beanie! sold at Hott Topic. I haven't shopped here in, like, 2 years. Hott Topic is finally coming out with cool stuff again!

2. "Look if you didnt have that guy you'd be fucking done allright?"

3. My new favorite holiday tea!

4. Tim Burton's art at MoMA <3

5. A most lovely graphic novel!

BONUS # 6:

from my lovely friend, Shanna:

That's all I have for now! Love and Peace!

In The Company of Wolves (& other updates)

So, the other night before Thanksgiving break started, somehow the subject of werewolves came up between me, Blake, Laura, Sarah and George. We just happened to be talking in Laura's room and then Twilight's sequal, New Moon, came up - then we discussed how the werewolves in New Moon weren't really werewolves...except they kind of were because that's how the first werewolves started in the original lore and the whole "bitten by a werewolf" thing came later and...well...it got complicated but fun to talk about. So, because of this discussion it got us all in the mood to watch what we thought were the BEST werewolf transformations. Here are the videos that we watched:

Neat yes? In other news...I have put links on my favorite movie/book/song of the month. So, if you are interested in learning more about what I think is cool this month you can check it out! yay! Sorry I haven't updated in awhile *BOOOOO* but I have been busy with school work :P

Happy Tofurkey Day!



So it has been a rough few days for me. I have been listening to to this song that has really kept me uplifted. Here it is for you:

All of their other songs are lovely too <3


Denny's Trip and the rest of my day

Today started out pretty early. I had to get up around 7:00am and meet with a Professor at 8:30am just before my first class of the day at 9:30. The meeting went very well...I handed her my paper that compared and contrasted Rosemary's Baby the book and the movie of the same title. Anywho, after that was an every-so boring class called Methods of Inquiry which is taught by a very lovely Polish woman who looks an awful lot like Meryl Streep. After that was my Literature and Culture class in which the discussion of Columbus dies rather quickly and Robinson Curusoe had taken over the syllibus. Then I went to my room for a few hours, watched Scream 2 and read more of my book: More Than Human. Than I meet with a mentee for a one-on-one and gossiped about the school.

I then went to an awesome old-friend's room to watch Kiki's Delivery Service and then went to a rather lovely new-friend's room to watch homemade ghost videos that scared the shite out of me!! >.< After that (and afraid of what was lurking behind every corner) 5 other (different) friends of mine and myself went out for a late night trip to Denny's. When we returned from said Denney's (and escaped the old, creepy guy behind us who was talking about James Bond and "dirty Bitches"...) we all realized that it was really, really raining out and we had to walk all of the way from the parking lot to our dorms (and that's far in the rain :P). So, because I thought today was such a lovely day I figured I'd not change out of my soaked clothes and I'd share it with you all through my blog. So there. <3

Love & Peace

Okay...I know it's pathetic...but....

Listening to: Kate Nash - Merry Happy


Okay, so lately, as you might imagine, I have been feeling down-in-the-dumps, so everytime I look in my mailbox and I see nothing there I am more disapointed than usual (an invite to the leadership dinner a random crap letter from a club that I don't want to join...something!). Soooo I went on to half.com and decided to semi-splurge! This is what I bought:

Scream 2 on DVD as well as Scream 3 (just in time for Halloween!)

Paprika on DVD (cute, trippy anime to help me get through school)

Well, since I am on a library computer I cannot show pictures BOOOO oh well. I figured I'd just put up a random post :) Love & peace.


Things Fall Apart

Listening to: Lou Reed - Street Hassle

I am so lost. That's why I had to do it. I am so confused with myself and what I want. It's only been three days since I broke up with Will yet it feels like forever. I have been having a hard time figuring myself out and I figured that the only way I could do it was to be single again. Right now, I just need my space and I just need some time. I am so lucky to have the family that I was blessed with and I am so lucky to have all of these lovely friends around me at school. I don't know what I would do without them. I am also blessed to have met someone like Will. He is still my best-friend but I cannot commit to him the way he wants to commit to me right now. I know how he feels about me, but I don't know how I feel abou him yet. I don't want to say empty "I love yous" I want to mean it...Will deserves a girl that means it when she says it. Right now, I'm not that girl :(


My new celeb obsession

Watching : The Ballad of Jack & Rose

...and no, it's not a sequal to Titanic :P

Anyway...my 2nd day of classes was today and I'm seriously already stressed out! My job doesn't help...that's for sure. I am a peer mentor and asked to watch over 6 freshers for 3 months and make sure their transition to college is running smoothly. They really are the best kids and I couldn't be more happy to be their mentor! I just hope I do a good job! I want them to like me and have a good time this year. I also want to make sure I pay attention to their needs as well as handle my own. But like I said, I couldn't ask for better kids. My classes aren't too bad. I really like them a lot. I am also excited for the Rocky Horror Picture show! The first practice is this Saturday! Oh and one more thing before I continue with the actually topic...I am singing the national anthem this Friday at my college *eeek!!*

So I am kinda obsessed with Helena Bonham Carter at the moment. I love looking at photos of her! The structure of her facial features is so interesting and her style is frumpy and awesome! I would never wear that kind of clothing but she seems to pull it off rather nicely:

I love the ones where she is pregnant! XD she seems so...unwilling yet proud...maybe she's proud that she's unwilling? I dunno. She's the best no matter what. :) Peace!



Listening to: Tegan and Sara - You Wouldn't Like Me

So I was MIA again...I was so busy with orientation and catching up with friends and spending time with the boy <3 that I didn't have time to blog (sucessfully). I have been doing a lot stuff for my peer mentoring job (like meeting the kids 3 days ahead of time) and stressing over the fact that I am a senior *yikes!*.

A couple of cool things that made me happy these past three days:

1. Move in day: Blake Edwards speaking like a Irish-man to all of the unsuspecting freshmen and their parents. I'm sure they will see him later speaking in an American accent and wonder, "What?" That's Blake for you.

2. Blake talking in an Irish accent with a hint of gayness (sugested by Christina XD).

3. Reading Stephen King's Carrie in the new lounge area at school and being interupted about 5 or 6 times in 2 hours by faculty asking me if I liked it or not and that I was one of the first students to use it >_<

4. Jillian's reaction to Shanna giving her a lap dance! Shanna turned to me and said, "Wanna see how you can make Jillian blush?"

5. Mandi, Caroline, and Christina as suitemates...their relationship is the funniest to observe.

6. Shanna and her suitemates suite in general...it's so big!!

7. Meeting my peer mentees! Some of them were kinda shy but the others seemed like they would love to get involved in some of activities that I plan on doing with them.

8. My view from my window! I see the roof top to the coffee house and it's three chimneys *geeks out*

9. Watching TrueBlood with my lovely Smidge. It made me appreciate vampire love stories again (besides my ever so favorite Japanese magna Vampire Knight).

10. Meeting all of the great new (and old) peeps on my floor in VC!


Online Shopping

Listening to: PBS News

I've just been really lazy around the house and taking advantage of the internet actually working on a daily bases. I have bought only a third of my school books because 3 of my classes don't have them posted yet. So, I decided to look around Half.com and see what I could get for cheap...I ended up finding a lot!

This has got to be one of my favorite TV series: Wonderfalls

*sigh* Perfect Blue...How could an anime movie be so scary yet so...lovely?

Tokyo Godfathers is the most kawaii rated R movie ever :P

and of course...the Paprika soundtrack


My New (and old?) Favorite Japanese Electro-pop Artist!

Listening to: Susumu Hirasawa - Mediational Field

*I have created links for those who are new to anime and would like to learn more ^_^*

Okay...I've always liked the music from the anime Paranoia Agent. I first started watching the anime almost 4 or 5 years ago when it was on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. I thought it was the weirdest shit I had ever seen!! I didn't understand the plot one bit until the very end (in which I sobbed!!! *sigh* good anime always makes me cry). Well, a girl-friend of mine got me the soundtrack to Paranoia Agent for Christmas my junior or senior year of high-school. I didn't really pay attention to the artist on the cover and when I put it on my computer the artist's name came up in Japanese.
Still, I soaked in the loveliness (and weirdness) of the bizarre "Moby on crack" sounding techno/voice remixes. One day, while Will was over, we decided to watch a movie that I had rented from the library. It was an anime movie called Paprika. I had seen this movie's director's other animated films, Tokyo Godfathers (which I adore) and Perfect Blue (which was the first I had seen of his films). I loved them and thought that since I had introduced Will into anime with Spirited Away it was time to go one step further. Well, once the opening credits popped up and the music began I was immediately put under a trance and then I started crying. I was glad Will didn't see me (the movie hadn't even started yet!!). "This is the guy who does the music for Paranoia Agent!" I exclaimed. After the movie, which was very nice btw, I looked up the artist's name and low and behold - it was the same guy from Paranoia Agent and his name is Susumu Hirasawa. He is absolutly amazing! His music seriously takes you to another realm as crazy as that sounds - I am really moved by his stuff.

Here is a link to the Opening Credits song called "Mediational Fields" from the movie Paprika:

Here is the closing credits song to Paprika:

Here is "Dream Island Obsessional Park" the opening credits for Paranoia Agent:

And here is a live version of "Grandfatherly Wind" the ending song to Paranoia Agent:

I hope you enjoy them! <3

Old News is Good News

Listening to: Papa mowing the lawn

So I am helping my mother clean out the old "school" room so that we can turn it into a guest room by the time I head back to Caz. While I was organizing the book shelves I came across an old issue of Time magazine. The front cover said: "Only 648 days until the election!" it had Hillary, McCain, Obama-sama, Rudy, Edwards, Romney, Biden, and Brownback on the cover. Suddenly, I became very interested in what was important on February 5, 2007...so, I decided to skim through the magazine.

William Shatner answers 10 Questions
One of the questions was: "LOST producer J.J. Abrams is working on a Star Trek movie for 2008 about a young Kirk and Spock, and there are rumors you will make an appearance." Shatner says that he talked to Abrams but that nothing was set in stone. Now I wish I had seen the movie!

Bush is in NOTEBOOK section
The Bush Administration talks about how they really are promoting Americans to go GREEN. They have asked for more solar panels, windmills and ethanol in the country. Too bad it didn't quite follow through...greedy bastards.

Time covers "Confusing Signs"
1. The ancient Hindu symbol for peace and the Nazi swastika
2. The "V" peace sign (palm turned outward and palm turned... inward :P)
3. The Confederate Flag (Prideful or racist?)
4. The Peace Sign (anti-war and anti-Christian)

Time's Verbatim (quotes of the week)
"The biggest problem is razor burn." Stormy Daniels, an actress, writer and director of XXX films, about how the new high-definition format in porno DVDs accentuates imperfections in the actors. This one just about killed me!

Miss America, 2007
Because MA2007 forgot to renew their contact with their original network they are forced to sign with CMT (Country Music Television). Hahahaha!

Spanking Bill
Cali assemblywoman tries to pass a bill that bans the spanking of children under 4 years of age. I wonder if it passed...

Denny Doherty, lead singer of the Mamas and the Papas, dies. Awwww ;_;

Time Magazine's NATION (political news)
8 Keys to the Campaign: Iraq, money, religion, write a best seller, beware the primary, recruit the new political consultants, win over the online activists and get to know the other contestants. Whew!

Time Magazine's SOCIETY (social news)
The nation's toughest prisons may be driving inmates mad - and in the process, making us less safe. DUN DA DUNNNNN!

Time Magazine's BEHAVIOR (umm, you know, behavior news)
WTF!!!??? SHEEP ARE GAY???? That's what this article claims. Most rams will have sex with other rams and leave the ladies shaking their heads in the barn corner. It got to be so bad on a few farms that this one scientist came up with a drug that apparently turned the gay rams straight. Time makes it very clear though that this drug does not work on humans...not yet. Honestly, I hope scientists have better things to do.


Back to the Blogging! California & school update and stuffies

Listening to: Tegan & Sara - Take Me Anywhere


My stand still is over and I'm back to blogging! Weee! I think I have my class figured out for the fall semester...DM Shepard said that she would do an independent study with me called "No...But I Saw the Movie!" and we will be reading books (plays and novels) and then watching the movie versions of them and compare! I hope that it will all work out. I keep praying about it and after being at my churches convocation I have decided to practice invulnerability. To not be so upset when someone says something awful to me or if something that I want doesn't work out. I have to build the strong faith that God will take care of me :) and so far so good. I have also been thinking lately that I need to build my will power more too. The mind is a very powerful thing...it's a factory of imagination and creation. I know that if I sincerely put my thoughts in the right direction while meditating and going about my daily life I can help myself get through my troubles and overcome obstacles.

Anyway...here are some pics! We went to Encinitas the first few days of the trip. It's a little, but well known surfing town outside of San Diego and it is one of the many places that my church has a temple in California. The beach (Swami's Beach) was named after Swami Paramahansa Yogananda.

Mommy walking on Swami's Beach in Encinitas

One of my new favorite photos :)


My Swami's Cafe smoothie! It's a vegetarian cafe near the beach. My smoothie contained kiwis, strawberries, bananas, mangos, apple and orange juice as well as a protein powder and bees wax sprinkled on top. Yummy!

a sign outside of the meditation gardens on the way to the beach :D

sign to the gardens

More to come! If not here, than definitely facebook! Love & Peace!


Blog FAIL + Alice link

Okay Okay Okay...

Yes, this is a blog entry about how I haven't been blogging lately

No, I won't go on and on about how busy and stressed I've been

BUT I will tell you a tad bit about my summer (just to sum up a few things).

1. I went to Quebec, Canada
2. I got to see my lovely, British friend, Jake Munson!
3. I got to spend my birthday (July 5th) with my family and Will
4. I got a cute, little tea pot from my friend Shanna!
5. I will post pics of it later ;-)
6. My computer (after 4 years of complete loyalty) bailed on me by not recognizing my charger :(
7. One of my classes was cancelled! So, in order to stay on campus, I need to find a new class (I'm hoping on an Independent Study about monsters).
8. NO ONE has gotten back to me about this IS...and it's annoying.

So, right now I'm panicking (not cool) and trying to relax. And honestly, I haven't been in the mood to blog...it's been a weird summer for me I guess. I have tons of silly pics to post soon so once I get my computer and class figured out I promise I'll blog again :)

Love & Peace <3

PS: Alice Trailer!!! WEEEE!



Veg Head

Here is a little helpful tidbit I found about a healthy vegetarian diet. I know this summer I am trying to cut a lot stuff out of my diet (Mayo, fatty cheese, chips, soda and so on) so I figured I'd look up some tips. Here are some really good ones that I found from a favorite vegetarian website of mine:

Although many people believe the vegetarian way of eating is inherently healthy, lower-fat food choices and calorie control are important no matter how you eat.
In fact, many vegetarians have a high fat intake. Foods like eggs, cream, butter, whole milk products and cheese contain many unnecessary calories. Some vegetarian protein sources, such as nuts and seeds, are also high in fat. Despite all the hidden fat in a vegetarian diet, you can still reap the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle while trying to lose weight. These simple ideas will help you follow a vegetarian diet and lose weight:

1). If you drink milk, go for fat-free. If you use soya milk, look for one that is labelled reduced-fat and fortified, so you get the protein and essential vitamins and minerals without unnecessary fat and calories
Choose low-fat versions of cheese, and limit your intake to under five grams of fat per ounce whenever possible.
2). Make legumes, tofu and tempeh your main source of protein. All are fairly low in fat, and legumes add fibre to your diet. Nuts and seeds are excellent sources of protein, but be wary of large portion sizes. If you're eating more than a handful a day it's too much.
3). Choose fresh fruit or raw vegetables for snacks and limit snacks that are high in fat or sugar.
4). Try flavouring foods with lemon juice or flavoured vinegars instead of mayonnaise, butter or margarine.
5). As with any diet, avoid fried foods and opt for baked, grilled or steamed ones instead.
6). Try to eat only when you're hungry. Nibbling - even on low-calorie foods - can add up.
7). Be creative with low-fat vegetarian recipes.

Following a vegetarian diet can help prevent some types of cancer, high blood pressure and heart disease. Just make sure that your vegetarian menu isn’t loaded with fat and sugar if you want to maximise your health and minimise your waistline.


Cerebro? Magneto? An MST3K Post <3

So, I am working at my papa's dental office and because it is friday it's kinda slow (except for the family of six that literally just called in as I typed that XP). Sooo, I have been looking up my heroes and their lovely rifftrax and dvd releases and found some great clips on youtube as well as merchandise. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the funnies:

If you want to watch more, just look them up on Youtube! Or better yet...buy some riffs from Rifftrax.com. In other news...MST3K has a new DVD. THE SPECIAL 20TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION!!


I want it sooooo baaaddddd <3


I've just realized that learning French is harder than it looks

Okay...I will admit it, I'm not naturally smart, I'm not! I really have to work hard at every thing I do and trying to learn French again has made me see why I gave up on it the first time around. It's a lot of work for me. Luckily, my papa and sister are trying to learn it as well - but with my sister's busy young life and my papa always working I end up being the only one who has enough time to practice. I really want to do it though, honestly. I know that once I learn one language I will be able to learn others as well (with so much ease). I have a list of things I want to do before I'm 35 and some of them are:

1. Learn to speak French (fluently)
2. Go to India
3. Get my aviation license
4. Be able to say "I am an actress" when someone asks me what I do for a living
5. Work for Disney

*sigh* I know I can make all of those happen I just wish it all came easier, you know? I guess life isn't easy (but we all know that). Oh well... I am off to do some more learning!


home alone with all of the ghosts

Listening to: Poe - Haunted

So I just watched Ghost in the Shell (the movie) while eating vegan chicken patties with eggs and cheese on toast. I'm ready to have strange dreams tonight...that's all I'm saying. I actually don't quite understand all of the hullabaloo about Ghost in the Shell. I feel the anime tv show is much more entertaining and easier to understand because, well, they have a whole series explaining what the HELL a "ghost" is anyway and what the HELL the main characters are! Are they cyborgs? Obviously...but how are they able to survive being blown to pieces if they have some human parts in them still? Oh who knows...anyway, since I feel everyone should see what I'm seeing, here are the opening credits:

The music is a creep-fest but it's an amazing intro is it not?


Cassie Q and a Tim Burton Marathon

Listening to: The Indigo Girls - Closer To Fine

Your Pop Star Name Is Cassie Q

You're Gonna Be a Star!

So...I'm Cassie Q! I wonder what other's pop star names are...we can create a girl band based on them :P Anyway...

My sister's and I, randomly, decided to have a Tim Burton marathon. Everyday we will watch a Tim Burton movie (in order if possible). By having this marathon I've discovered that the only Tim Burton movies that I don't have are the Batman ones. So, I had to go to the library and get all three (two of them I had to order from different libraries). So far we have watched Pee Wee's Big Adventure:


and Edward Scissorhands:

Hopefullly, I get a call from the library today telling me that I will get Batman and Batman Returns tomorrow (since we were suppose to watch Batman before Edward) but whatever. If we don't get it we are watching The Nightmare Before Christmas!


What I am up to...

Watching: Disney's Aladdin

So, as you can see, I am watching Aladdin. I am preparing myself for my internship with the children's theatre group that I will be helping to direct at the end of June. WEE! I am excited about that but I am also a little nervous as well. I have never directed well, anything before! I am hoping to learn a lot!

In other news...I have finished reading Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin (the same guy who wrote The Stepford Wives, which was way better than the Nicole Kidman movie version btw). I loved it and was happy to see that the movie is NOT different in the slightest (I had seen the movie first). It's one of those books where you can read the book or watch the movie and you get the same story...but I cannot say you'll get the same experience. There's something about reading the book...it's more suspenseful and sad. However, for all of you people that like to read the last chapter ahead of time, I say watch the movie FIRST!!! You will not spoil the lovliness that is Rosemary's Baby. Here is a clip for your viewing pleasure:

Yes, the trailer is quite vague but I honestly don't know what else they could do to not spoil anything about it. To promote the movie/book even further, this was my face when I first saw the movie (as well as Rosemary's face ten minutes before the closing credits):


Anyway, I am now finishing up Lolita and starting The Last Lecture too.

Okay, here is a link to my Anime Boston pics!:http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevenwburt/

and these! http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=258387&id=840630240&l=1f5a500890


Anime Boston Fun!

Anime Boston is this Friday! I'm hoping our hotel has wifi because I want to update this blog with pics and stories and what not. I have finished my costume of Izumi Curtis from Full Metal Alchemist. I think it's pretty ligit...but that's for the fans to decide. Stacy has made my t-shirt for our Kingdom Hearts II soccer team spoof and I have everything else. Here are a some pics of the characters I am going yo be:

Izumi Curtis from Full Metal Alchemist

Xaldin (Number 3) from Kingdom Hearts II

My side burns aren't as epic but I feel people will get the idea of who i am. <3


Senior Week

Watching: FullMetal Alchemist

Yesterday night was SUSHI NIGHT! Amber invited a bunch of us from the Canterbury adventure to join her for some sushi in the Target plaza. Laura, Shannon, Caroline, Mandi and I were the ones that could make it. I had not eaten sushi in about 3 years, since the last time I was in California. The place had my favorite kind, Avocado sushi and it was half off ($2 for sushi!? Heck yeah!). It was great to talk to people about England and so forth without worrying about the friends who had not gone and having them feel left out. It was very relaxing and a joy to be there with those girls. It was also quite an adventure! Mandi attempted to get saki but was carded, :P Caroline had to admit that she had fish the other day becasue she was not getting enough iron, I had to catch up A LOT with Laura because only seen her maybe TWICE the whole semester and I was able to spend time with Amber and Shannon (who would be graduatin in one week!) it was def. a good time.

I plan on going home this weekend and then come back to live with Miss Kate Sculley for the rest of senior week. I'm going to miss everyone <3


The House on the Rock - I'm wantin to go, people!

Listening to: Promise & the Monster - Sheets

So, I am reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods right now and I just passed the part when the characters all went to the famous House on the Rock in Wisconsin. I had heard of this place freshman year when Roxy talked about it in our Theatre Production class but have since then forgotten about it. Well, now I am reminded, and goodness, it sounds like the weardiest thing in this whole world and I want to go! Here are some pictures thanks to Google images:

Did I mention it has the biggest carousel in the world?? 200 hybrid/camera animals to ride on (none of which are horses!).


Johnny Depp on Spongebob!

Listening to: The White Stripes - Your Southern Can is Mine

So, I just I'd post this video that my sister told me about!



Watching: The Wizard of Oz

Today was a lovely spring day in New York! Mandi, Caroline and I went off on a little adventure today into Syracuse. Our first stop was a small coffee/tea cafe called Recess. It looked EXTREMELY ghetto from the outside and none of us really knew what to think of it at first. However, once we went inside, we saw the real deal: an Indie, Bohemian cafe with tattooed college students and and messy haird artists. It was simply lovely! Sadly, we could not stay for long and we ventured to a Hippie shoppe that Mandi and Caroline had told me about. There, I bought a few bandanas for myself as well as one for Caroline b/c she payed for my tea prior. It was then that we made our way to Carolsel mall and off to H&M.

Caroline returned a shirt and I bought a strapless bra for a dress of Will's that I am wearing for the fashion show. Honestly, I am NOT impressed with H&M's selection of spring wear...I find it uber tacky (though Caroline did find a cute peacock dress for me ^.^ alas...too expensive).
Eventually, Caroline had to go to Hott Topic to buy some jewelery so Mandi and I decided to go to Steve Madden and browse. Well, the browsing ended up being a shopping spree. Steve Madden was having a sale-thingy going on with scratch-off cards and what not. Well, the one that I got said 30% (the second highest!!) so I thought that I would look around and find a cheap show (yeah right) to use it on. I ended up picking up the "shoe of the week" which was already 10% off! I bought these really cute flats from Steve Madden for only $56.00 (originally $89.95). In Mandi's words, "It was a steal."

Afterwards, Caroline dropped off Mandi back at school and we walked through Manlius and got some ice-cream and sat in the park. After that, we saw an amazing movie at a little artsy movie theatre called, Sunshine Cleaning it was very beautiful and touching. I have seen better Indie films (Squid and the Whale, anyone?) but this was still good. Even more exciting was the trailor beforehand for a Indie/comedy called Away We Go! It looks like a grown-up version of Juno...if that makes sense...KAWAII!!! It was a great day!

Here are the two trailers for Sunshine Cleaning and Away We Go! <3



Watching - Boondock Saints

Okay, so I've been away for awhile...I have been very busy with my Independent Study but I have finally finished the first draft and I will be handing it in tomorrow! I'mhoping it's good enough...we'll see. Now, without furthur adue, here are some pictures I took back in March!

My friend Shanna took this for me :)

A little deer outside of my house

Almost bought this at a local thrift store...FAIL :(

I almost bought this too...DOUBLE FAIL

Settle down with a nice cup of teaaaa <3
