Pens from the dead

Pens from the dead

For someone who likes to write as much as I do, I am constantly finding myself in complete non-possession of a working writing utensil. I do most of my notes at school on my laptop, and sometimes when I have to sign in for a class or something, I search my backpack and find at … Continue reading

12/12/12

I had the idea at an earlier point that I should post something on 12/12/12, at 12:12. As the afternoon passed, I thought, oh I’ll just do it at 12:12 at night. Then an hour ago I remembered and was like oh… that doesn’t work because by then it’ll actually be 12/13. Heh. But, I … Continue reading

You make me feel brand new

You make me feel brand new

Notice anything different around here? Well unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past 2.5 years, a rock without internet access or an ounce of admitted voyeuristic curiosity about yours truly, you will see that I’ve FINALLY revamped the look of the blog!

In these many days and hours I spent in … Continue reading

Love blows

Love blows

It came in! I love Tara McPherson’s artwork. It’s pop-y and pretty but dark at the same time. I can’t remember where I first learned about her, but this piece has always been my favorite by her, so I ordered the poster form off of The Cotton Candy Machine a couple of weeks ago as … Continue reading

I miss Okinawa.

It’s 3:30am on a Saturday night. I have a million things on my mind, but right now that’s the one keeping me from sleeping.

Reunited and it feels so good

Reunited and it feels so good

Last week and the weekend brought some sweet reunions with old, older, and not-so-old friends. First, a high school classmate who I probably haven’t seen since we graduated happened to be in town for a week (he’s part Okinawan so this was his second time here and he already has a lot of connections on … Continue reading
