I love frames, don't get me wrong but when living in a dorm, a temporary residence, frames aren't that practical, so I went into my stash of pictures to find all my favorite ways of displaying your pictures, polaroids and other snapshots! I feel like every dorm has a polaroid wall, so these are a few examples of how to mix it up.
1. Don't line them up in a perfect rectangle, make a montage blob, not everything is perfect in the world.
note: don't just keep your polaroids in your bedroom, they can go anywhere, use caution putting them on your door, they will be attacked.
2. Or if order is your style, get out a ruler and make sure everything is perfectly symmetrical and straight. This first one is my absolute favorite, and belongs to a friend of mine.
3. Shapes! Mountains, peace signs (ala sam weinberg), words, use your imagination.
4. Instead of taping or tacking your pictures to a wall grab some string and clothes pins.
In other news, nothing much is going on. 3 weeks left in high school and it is all parties, projects, and ceremonies.

My friend Nick doesn't seem to understand why I actually go to school. Well for one thing it is screen printing time at school again. With my last few weeks of high school remaining, the end of the year activities hit exactly when my senioritis comes into full swing. Watching movies, tv, screen printing, and writing poems, what more could a girl want!

Everyone knows Jenny Lewis is the cutest girl in the world. Her music, her hair, her clothes, everything about her is just so awesome! I finally got to see Rilo Kiley this weekend at Coachella, and although there was some disappointment when they didn't play anything off of The Execution of All Things (the totally teased the crowd with the beginning of execution!but i deep down knew they wouldn't play it), I was still enthralled with her presence. My friends and I all kept turning to each other with giant smiles on our faces, we danced and sang along. I even started to tear up when Jenny sang "Does He Love You?" and I know I wasn't the only one hit hard by it. I'm curious if we were in LA if she would have played "I Love LA". Jenny Lewis please tour and play things off of execution. your fans will love you. We love the other albums too, its just cruel not to...you know?
