Hm. So many thoughts.
It's been a while, you and I. I am sorry. It happened: college. Everything I thought I knew about life was flipped upside down when I realized for the next 6 months I will be wearing flip flops in a cockroach infested dorm shower once again. But how are you?
(still from my video!)
Remember when I made those fuzzy pouches on my Youtube channel? Missed that boat? Ok, you can see it here. Anyways, I found the coolest use for it! As some of you may know, I'm living in the dorms again this year. My room came adorned with these gross (v. porous) cork boards circa 1970, but I've been having so much fun collaging them. I ended up pinning that pouch onto the board and now it holds my pens. THE LITTLE THINGS, I TELL YOU!
(my little pouch just hangin')
I've also been into selfies recently. Outfit/collage/art selfies - that is. This one is from my tumblr (here). I have been loving this outfit combo - head to toe thrifted! Check it out.
(My other "mood board" at the moment. And Stewart Pickles contemplating life at 3 in the morning whilst making pudding for Angelica. )
And then there is college again: amazing. I sort of had a rocky start but I finally feel like I've found my groove here. It's different - being a sophomore. I know that sounds so douchey, but it is. It reminds me of that episode (S3E10) of Workaholics when the theatre kid is talking down to the freshmen:
"I have a bevvy of mixers off campus to attend. Do you know about off campus? Or are you only aware of the world immediatley in front of you?" - Theatre Ass
It's so true though. I can't believe that I've only discovered this new world my second year. Sure, there were times last year, but I felt like a foreigner. Now it seems so natural. It feels good to annex toxic people and start over. I finally feel like I'm past it all.
As you can probably tell, I've been taking even more film pictures lately. I love that shit. I know, cue the eye rolls, but I LIVE FOR 35MM! Something about it. I like not being able to edit your pictures or even see them, I think it captures the beauty of REAL still life. And you treat every picture like a mini portrait because you know you only have "X" amount of shots left. Yeah, you might not look model worthy in the photo, but it was a real - non staged - moment in time and I feel like that is really beautiful. Imperfections are beautiful. People are beautiful.
Alright, it's getting weird. That is my cue to go.
Keep it cool,
