I know some people really don't like her, but I'll always be charmed by Kirsten Dunst.

And teaching myself to dress a bit more. I'm worried it's all just become a collection instead of a guide... then there's the problem that I can't just go out and buy things. hmmm

In sad times I need to look at this:

so, I've really been missing my boy, but last night I had some fun and tonight should be really fun. Hard Cider, Michael Jackson on vinyl, and drunk puzzling... should make up for my lack of kisses.

Me and the boy (photo by the wonderfully whimsical Jan von Holleben):

And on of the projects I'm planning and re-working:

I hate how I conflate pop culture's examples of relationships as a possibility of my own. It's just not reality.
I hate when I have bad dreams about me and my boy, especially when he's far away. I know it's never a life possibility with what happens in these dreams, but it still can be upsetting. I never have bad dreams about anyone else in my life. Maybe it's some subconscious defense mechanism? I also dreamt I was sexually harassed by this one creepy guy that stood in my starbucks line a few days ago back home... damn those insomnia cookies. Well, the day moves on so I need to get over this shlump and be happy.

"It's a city of broad shoulders and big hearts and bold dreams; a city of legendary sports figures, legendary sports venues, and legendary sports fans; a city like America itself, where the world -- the world's races and religions and nationalities come together and reach for the dream that brought them here.

In Chicago, old and new exist in harmony. It's a city rooted in an industrial past that laid this nation's railroads, forged this nation's steel, rebuilt itself after a great fire, and reversed the course of a mighty river." -Obama's speech to lobby for the 2016 Olympics in my hometown, Chicago.

inveterate dreamer.

Teaching myself to dress again

Thinking of starting two new photo projects in the next few weeks. Won't exactly say what they are, but both require paint. One requires morning time in the backyard the other a studio. I don't know how far I can take them, but we'll find out in due time.

Also, scanning images of my senior project, not gonna show them until I've got the finished product (new goal, instead of putting up dust covered images). It may be a while, but it'll be worth it.

I finally have internet, and I've been naughty purchasing some items.

And teaching myself to dress again:

I'll be taking ballet and an abs class... working on doing yoga more often and just eating well. Oh, and I'm an unofficial aunt now! Don't know the girls name yet, but can't wait to meet her.
