I was just being lazy/ busy and haven't written anything. That and most of my online time has been spent on www.polyvore.com . It's just amazing, a great way for me to feed my fashion obsession without obtaining any large amounts of credit. Here's some of my "sets"....
I LOVE it! Well, I've got to concentrate on painting my toenails, headin into the city tomorrow and going out with newly single Nick (long story including domestic violence and a whole loada drama). Peace!

The last few days have been kinda busy, so I haven't really found myself with time to blog. Thursday, I went into the city, and it was a shitshow . Pretty much 15 mins after we got to the club, Nick and Chris were fighting. We ended up leaving, things keep escalating, and the next thing I know Nicks going to the police. They didn't do anything, as I'm sure the NYPD has better things to do than mediate a gay couples fight. It's pretty funny in retrospect. Nick was real pissed so he came back to TR with me. Yesterday we went to go check out these nearby cranberry bogs. It was kinda cool, but we ended up with ticks even though we all used bug spray. Also, it isn't cranberry season yet, so the bog part wasn't really red. Anyway, today is ungodly hot. I got a cheapy above ground pool for the backyard, but I won't get it until Tuesday. Sucks. Kent, Nick and I have been just sitting around all day in the AC. I really wanna go see the Strangers. It looks scarry, and actually got good reviews. Well, I'm hot and bored and want to get some lunch, I just kinda felt like updating, even though I'm 99.9% positive that not a single person reads this. If I'm wrong, hit me up. Anyway, stay cool.

What? Tornados in NJ? Apparently so. I'm on tornado watch today. It's pretty cloudy, and a little bit windy, but I have yet to have my roof sucked off. I feel just a little ripped off.
Something completely unrelated... I saw a disturbing commercial today. At first watch, it blew my mind. I still always think of songs like "Who's got the crack" or "Steak for Chicken" when I hear the Moldy Peaches, not kids on water slides. As if the whole Juno thing wasn't bad enough. Seriously, why is it that all my favorite bands are in commercials? Of Montreal, Justice, Chromeo, The Apples In Stereo, Cat Power and the list goes on. I found this article on the subject. While I do think commercials in some ways increase expose, I myself having downloaded tons of songs after hearing them in Apple ads or other random commercials. What I don't agree with is re - writing the lyrics. I understand that they're trying to make a buck, but as a true fan I can't help but cringe when I hear jingles like "Let's go Outback tonight". In this particular case, I find I don't even enjoy listening to the original song anymore, which used to be a sunny - day favorite. Since this Moldy Peaches tune was already ruined by Juno, I guess I don't have anything to fear. I should just be thankful that the music in commercials in something that I actually like.
Anyway, I'm off to the city tomorrow, but I'm less than excited. It's supposed to be rainy and crappy. I think I might take the bus or make Kent drive. I just don't wanna deal with like the Parkway and Turnpike and traffic and gas and all that bull. I got a bike to simplify, and there's always busses and trains. I want to trade my rabbit in for a hybrid, but it's not financially responsible on my part. If I wait a few years, hybrids will probably be more prevalent, and cheaper!

I got a bike! It's super cute and was even on sale! Yay! Now I can battle the $5,000,000/ gallon gas prices! And maybe get into shape! Hooray. I also booked my Key West trip. I'm sososososoooo excited b/c I haven't been on a real vacation in 50 years. August is going to be eventful - Aug 8, 9 , 10 I'll be in Baltimore for the Otakon. It's this super awesome, super huge anime / japanese culture convention. Then, as soon as I get back, it's up to the Adirondacks for the yearly camping trip. I will bask in the beauty of the mountains and woods, and will love it. Then, on the 25th, I'll fly down to Key West to live it up on the beach. Can't wait. I'm a little nervous to fly, but I'll be ok. I haven't been on a plane in 6 years! Lame. I really need to travel more. That's a big reason why I've always wanted to be a photographer. I wanna travel to and photograph the whole world. Look out. lol. Well, I'm gunna go break in my bike a lil.

I guess I should kick this off telling a little about myself. Im 21, female, photo student, currently living down the Jersey Shore. I go to Parsons, but I screwed it up this fall, and Im currently trying to go back. I sent out a returning application last thurs, so I'm just waiting to see what the admissions office has to say. I pretty much left b/c I had a nervous breakdown. I was struggling with anxiety, and I'm sure the fact that I lived a stones throw from Wall St only made it worse. I DEFINATLY won't be dorming again. I need my personal space to smoke pot and crawl up into a ball and cry when it's all too much. I'm not normally melancholy, but sometimes stress kinda takes over. I was also helping my mom move/ moving all my stuff from North Jersey where I lived my whole life, to the shore. It was tough b/c I had so many memories in that old house. It's where I grew up, and it reminds me of my Dad a lot. He passed away of a heart attack, what like 3 years ago now? I honestly don't remember, and I don't want to. I remember him on his birthday, I couldn't imagine how much it would fuck with me if I remembered the date he died. It's still super hard. He was kind of my guide through life, and functioning without one has been tough. Against the odds, I have managed to get into Parsons all by myself *pat on back*, including all paperwork and paying for it and everything. I do have a inheritance, and I hope it doesnt run out before I graduate. I'll be in a pretty big jam if it does b/c y tuition alone is like 40gs a year and that doest include a place to live, materials for school (SO expensive, damn photography), and just regular living expenses. Lifes tough, lol. I wouldn't have it any other way though, b/c if I do graduate from Parsons (I would say when but I havn't been accepted back and I don't want to jinx it), I'll def have a bright future. I want to work for a fashion magazine or perhaps a periodical, but still produce fine art photography in my own studio. Gotta dream big. Currently, I'm doing nothing. I have no job, and at this point I don't see myself getting one this summer. All the seasonal positions are filled, and I can't get a job and lie and say I'm not going to college in the fall. I'm not positive that I am, but it is my goal. This gives me LOTS of free time, that I usually spend watching the discovery channel or something. It's super boring. I also dont know ANYBODY where I live. It's an akward situation, for sure. I do have my boyfriend though, and I couldn't find a better one. He's amazing. I could write like 50 pages about how much I love him. Unfortunatly though, he's 20, so I don't get to go out much. I don't wanna go alone, and I also feel bad leaving him home. I think he secretly fears I'll find another guy if I'm out without him, but seriously, I didn't even find decent guys at clubs when I was single and looking. I just like to dancedancedancedance and drink. I have plans to go into the city and go out this Thursday tho, with Nick. Nicks my gay BFF. We've been friends since freshman year in high school, and I actually lived with him briefly in Harlem (well spanish harlem, im not that tough!). He has a boyfriend, Chris, who is equally awesome, even if he acts a little crazy sometimes. Who doesnt? Anyway, we always go to this gay club, Splash. I like the getting in free and $2 Long Island Iced Teas and the great music (even the Madonna) and all the fun gay guys! I kinda prefer going to gay clubs, especially for Kent (bf). It probobly gives him piece of mind. I wish things were more laid back about age, like they were when I was 18 and 19. I used to go out all the time, then there was this crackdown, and now even a fake ID usually won't work. Hard times for todays youth lol. So.. anyway I guess that's a good enough intro. I'm not sure what this blog will be about. Probably a combo of my life, fashion, music and art. With that, I'm out. I'll leave you with Chairman Meow, my cute kitty!
