I'm saving this for real this time

coming soon.

Well, after years of wavering on the boarder of having a blog that focuses on interior design, I will be moving into my first apartment in New York. My friend Annabel and I are currently looking at places now. No dorms for me. I unfortunately don't get to go all out since New York is so far and I can't really use flea market finds to my advantage. That all will just have to wait until I get to live with Tess someday in the near future in our beautiful Los Angeles. I don't really have any photos to post now, but soon I will dig into my design folder and find some inspirational gems to share!

I was linked to one of my classmate's blogs..which then led me to a list of links of blogs which she followed. After giving them a look over I realized how absolutely terribly boring they all are. They almost all followed the same pattern and had nothing unique to offer. The visuals were absolutely the worst, all coming from the same canon digital rebel probably.

Is this because I have the attention span of a Tumblr user now? Has blogging been around so long that it is nothing special and everyone and their mom has one? I believe it is both...and probably a few other things. I am constantly frustrated by the internet...technology too. My ex-boyfriend and I would always discuss our views on blogs, social networking sites, and whatever else the internet has that allows you to express yourself. Why put it on paper. Nick one day came home from class with a manifesto of the future of photography, how it will all be viewed on computer screens and making prints should become totally obsolete. Aside from drugstore prints I haven't made a print in months. In one class I didn't even bother making digital prints for class, instead I just projected it on a wall, where as probably 2 years ago that option would have been out of question. I have clearly gone off topic but I guess I think the internet is ready to implode upon itself, or else I am patiently waiting for it to do so.

Today I am going outside and will leave the internet behind. I should be concerned that my "tumblarity" is going to drop or something, but I will survive. Maybe when I come home though I am going to go over all the blogs I follow on my blog roll and drop the ones I just don't care about. Don't drop my blog though...I love you all, each and every one of you.

another year approaches

I am turning 19 in a week on August 10th. This Saturday I am planning a birthday picnic at the Getty Center before the Dodos play a show. Sunday I will be at the Rosebowl Fleamarket. Monday is my actual birthday but I have no idea what to do...maybe Disneyland??

Birthdays ALWAYS stress me out. I usually end up being cranky and overwhelmed. Birthdays have to many expectations. This birthday is going to be a sad one for sure though because it marks the start of my last year as a teenager, and I thought I was finally getting so angsty. How is it already August...Where has this summer gone??
