Christmas List 2009

I feel so bad for abandoning my blog this semester- but i've been working hard to try and raise my GPA, I hope I have more time next semester to update. Recently I've taken the time to look around- I just realized people in my major work 500x harder than the majority of other students in my university. Why did i pick such a hard major? I should have done something easy like communications.

In other news, I'm no longer working at AA, too many hours. I'm having a little bit of a crisis though- I'm in a style rut. I'm trying not to wear all AA (like it's now the majority of my wardrobe) but i feel like what i end up with is slightly outdated and a little boring. I desperately need to go shopping but i have absolutely no money to do so *hooray unemployment*
but that's enough complaining, as stated above- CHRISTMAS LIST!!! xD

Kimchi Blue T-Strap Skimmer (pink)

An over sized Flannel Shirt

I'm slowly trying to ease into this menswear look

Red Tape Corley Boot (brown)

I Kissed a Pearl Dress

A Macro Lens for the Nikon

I really want to start doing some macro photography- I have this thing for eyes and i've been dying to make it into a project.

That's basically it, there's more but these are the big ones.

To make up for my absence, i'm also going to leave with a game i stumbled on:
my highest score is like a 150, see if you can top that :P

Awkward Palm Tree!!

So. The title of this post...sorry it's been over a month? School as been so hectic and i've got some extracurricular activities (and of course the shocker of me going to class and doing homework). However, i accidentally did not go to class today- it's a long story but basically i was locked out of the
So i decided to take the opportunity to say hai! :D

moving on...

so just to make a quick entry, I've been digging Rain Machine recently- it's the side project of that crazy guy from TV on the Radio (you know...the one with the beard?) and he's amazing!

my favorite song is Winter Song but Smiling Black Faces and Give Blood are pretty good too : )

That's it for now- hopefully it won't be too lo
ng before i post again!

Another Year, Another Goodbye

A week or so ago i left to go back to school. Out of boredom (but mostly procrastination) i decided that i would take pictures of some of the little things around my house i cherish the most. Sadly i wasn't able to finish my last minute project, at some point putting of packing became impossible, but here is what i was able to scrap up before my mother yelled at me for not being productive : )

**my kitty is so CUTE!!! xD**

Peaceing it <3

Enemies of the State

If you have been living under a rock this past week, you would have known that President Barack Obama gave a speech addressing the students of America and the stupid uproar that revolved around it. Though i am majoring in International Relations, i'll admit that i do fall behind on my news every so often- maybe i missed something but can someone tell me why it is that these conservatives americans- not the politicians, but the neighbors, the relatives, the brothers and sisters i go to church with, fight sooo hard against this man? He hasn't even finished his first year in office, what is it that Obama has done so far that is so threatening and evil that some feel the need to act like a wall every time he tries to make a step forward? I'm actually finishing this entry a few days after it says it was made (because blogger is weird like that) but if you listened to the Health Care speech on Wednesday, you would know that one republican congressman had the nerve to even yell out "lies!" in the middle of the address! mix that in with people using 9/11 as a tool to bash their president, the birthers, and of course the infamous tea parties (and things like it)- WHAT in the world has Obama done to receive so much disrespect, insults, and just pure hatred? Don't get me wrong, i do not believe that everyone should love him, you have a problem with our president fine! i respect that! I will do my best to understand your viewpoint, but there is disagreement, and there is disrespect. And the disrespect of one's president is a rebellion of one's president- that's called being a traitor to one's country. What signaled the success of our nation's new government early in our history was the fact that there was a switch in political parties and the federal government wasn't overthrown, though many people didn't like it, they respected the rules put in place and gave the new leader the respect they deserved.

You may be wondering if my current stance was the same when George Bush was still president, and i will say yes it was- even though I think Bush did a lot to screw up our country I still gave him the proper respect he deserved- not because i agreed with him but because i belong to a country who decided to vote him into office, because i respect our democratic system in America, i respect the people's decision to put that man into office- i may not have taken a bullet for him, but i recognized it was my duty as a citizen to respect him. It would be the same thing if John McCain won the election. I would hate it and wonder what kind of country i lived in, but i would NEVER saying that I want him to fail in these 4 years- instead i would hope for the best and do my part to try and find solutions for the matters at hand. Express your concern: that's good, healthy, and encouraged! but just blind hatred, pure malice- that's not part of our constitution and that for sure wasn't what this country was founded on.

That's the democracy i believe in and that's patriotism straight up. What i don't understand is why no one else believes in this? Why people who, all this time, called themselves the 'patriots' the 'lovers of democracy and America' do not hold this same view point. How is it patriotism if your love for your country is fleeting? How can you bleed red,white, and blue when you abandon the principles this nation was founded on the moment you don't get your way? A better question even, how is that not how is that not being a traitor? In my opinion that's even worse than burning a flag.

If you no longer want to stand by American Democracy- get up and leave. I don't need to hear your unconstructive complaining, it helps no one but the political agenda of these oh so 'holy' men you seem to follow without question. If the Antichrist was to pop up, it would probably be from your own self righteous party.

I know i just finished ranting but can someone, and i'm asking honestly now, tell me what it is that Obama has done to deserve, and be met with, so much hatred? but also, Is that which he has done so much worse that he deserves to get even more ill treatment than Bush did? Clinton did? Nixon did???

Someone needs to open my eyes or something because right now i have no other excuse for these people except to say they are racist unpartiotic traitors that should be treated as enemies of the state. That means you Rush Limbaugh.

Jesus Called

I was reading a post from 'Stuff Christians Like' and it was talking about saying that are, well said, when someone has moved on. He asked everyone to put down their own personal favorite sayings and one person wrote down "Jesus Called". I think i'm going to take that one.

I know personally i've relinquished my fear of death or dying- i know who i'm going to meet on the other side. But this talk of passing away and the attitude of the mourners made me realize that I'd rather have people honor my passing by being joyful- not unhappy. I, of course, realize that no one is going to be too joyful- i just died- but that spirit should be in the back of their minds. I love to laugh, i love to have a good time, i love to cheer people up, my funeral shouldn't be a Debby downer. There's a passage in 2 Timothy that i love, and when i read it i knew that this was what i wanted to be able to say by the time i was on my death bed:

For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. (2Tim.4:6-8)

I know that i want to leave saying "i've fought the good fight, i have finished the race- now Jesus is calling me to come home." How amazing it will be to be able to say those words. To know that i've done the will of my father, and that he has said 'well done, good and faithful servant. Come and dwell with me." It brings excitement into my heart. I wonder what other people, who do not know my father, feel about death. I wonder what kind of emotions go through their minds when they think about the moment their on that death bed. will they be able to know with confidence what and who is going to meet them when they open their eyes again? or is there an ever pressing 'what if...' on their minds when they play that last scene over and over.

Vacaaaa! ^_^

I went to Maui this past week with the family- it was very nice, very pretty. If you follow my tweets you would know that i definitely was in the same dwelling place as Will Farrell and Dilan and Cole Sprout form 'The Suit Life of Zack and Cody' (if you didn't know who they were :P)

Pictures!!! :D

phew! That was a bunch! those are my tops (more or less) out of around 250 pictures. I would write a real post as well but i'm a little wiped out now : )

Run Toto Run

You know that Passion Pit song sleepyhead?
I decided i like Run Toto Run's version of it better : )

I really like her voice. and the song isn't as busy as the original (which is a big plus with me)
I think ever since i got my job at AA my taste in music has toned down A LOT- and who can blame me, we play a lot of loud and busy music at my store =/
Plus i don't think it helped that we overplayed this song to the max when it came out.i heard it like every other shift.

but anyway, just though i should share ^_^

Peacing it <3
*p.s. isn't that a crazy laugh she has at the end :P

Sperry Top-siders

...and i love them!

unfortunately, they require more earthy colors from me (a part of my wardrobe that is still underconstruction...) but i'll get over it. They're so comfy and sooo cute- i've always been a sucker for those more masculine looks, but i'm just not as good at finding peices like that i guess :P

Alexander McQueen

Fall 2009 collection RTW

If you haven't noticed, i'm usually attracted to designers who use a lot of color and patterns, and honestly I think that the black and red this is soooo over done, but i really like his stuff! The last two dresses i wouldn't be surprised to see it on the red carpet or something :P
aaaand, i would definitely rock that first dress! and the Jacket on the second girl looks so cute!

more later!

By The Sea Side

I went to the beach last week and it was very refreshing- though i got sand EVERYWHERE.

Beaches are a lot like Disney World, when your there you hate it- it's uncomfortable, your hot, there's lines for everything and food is over priced. But when you look back and look at all the pictures and collect the few good memories you had while there, It seems so fun that you want to go through the whole trial all over again.

I definitely had more pictures that i took but for some reason the connection b/w my camera and my laptop is just not working and it refuses to let me upload like 4 pic's : (

That's it for now tho, if i figure it out, i'll put it up.
