i have to admit

quitting is not a bad thing

take a look at my arm party. making these bad boys is my new hobbie and i'm obsessed.
i quit my job. i am no longer a waitress (!)
at least for now. i cannot express the joy i am experiencing by knowing i never have to go back to the cheesecake factory ever again.

i'm liberated.

now my energy is focused on only doing things that make me happy. i spend my time listening to casting calls, networking & emailing, making bracelets, writing poems & working on my new etsy shop (coming soon). paying your bills is not synonymous with having to work in a shitty job. cheers to that.

blvd life

this is us, walking to go get burritos.


today i just woke up feeling like a butterfly. i felt fluttery and happy and through my cracked window it smelt like summer. i am thankful for my adventures. for casserole. and for this morning.

by this lady's love of everything chevron.

and this lady has renewed my own obsession with bracelet stacking.

even though i'm not normally the crafty kind of girl, i shall be undertaking a new project to produce lots and lots of these.

marie tovesky

"yes, there would be a dirty way out of life, if one chose to take it. but she did not want to die. she wanted to live and dream - a hundred years, forever! as long as this sweetness welled up in her heart, as long as her breast could hold this treasure of pain! she felt as the pond must feel when it held the moon like that; when it encircled and swelled with that image of gold."
-willa cather, o pioneers!

happy saturday night

sometimes you spend all day recovering from the day before. sometimes all your plans fall through and you end up at home anyway. but it's ok because when you've got charlie parker and willa cather to keep you company with a hot cup of mint tea, life is ok for the moment. happy saturday night.

well nowadays i'm looking for a new job because i don't want to be a professional waitress. unfortunately the job search is almost as annoying as being in a job you strongly dislike. i'm hoping that if i do things like my roommate and thank the universe for things ahead of time before i get them then maybe i can will things into manifestation.

i keep wearing what i call my "man repelling" outfits but its not working and despite having so many nail colors to choose from, it turns out red is always the best nail color. always.

the older i get i find i'm getting to be more and more feminine (whatever that means, right?) even though i become more of a feminist everyday, i also find that everyday i embrace things like lipstick and high heels more and more. and maybe that's because sometimes they are irrelated and that i can be a feminist AND wear high heels in the same moment. as someone who has never owned lipstick save for dance performances when i was little, i now own at least nine. i usually have one in my purse with a compact. i have also taken up jogging and i like to clean. i really don't know who i have become. i think i am just becoming less lazy. which is like, a good thing. and maybe that also means i'll find a job sooner rather than later. lucky interview lipstick? what color..... hmmm...
