i’ve been trying to figure out how to say this…

seeing as how i am much more emotionally attached to this blog than i originally thought.

wordpress: it’s not you, it’s me.

no really, though. i love wordpress! but my vision for this blog has slowly… i don’t know… become diluted? not clear? and it’s frustrating.

so i’ve moved:

i feel like it serves my purpose of what i need for an outlet — for right now. we’ll see.

i do have a fashion blog in the works for wordpress! co-authored by my best friend, annmarie. that is… if we can ever get it together enough to begin posting!

thank you all for always stopping by. it’s meant more to me than you know.

see you on tumblr :)

i turned twenty years old on saturday.
the photos above are just a few quiet moments from the day.

i’m surrounded by some really amazing humans, you know.

there’s so, so much to say… as always.
and no way for me to say it.
at least, not yet.

have a wonderful week, everyone.

and the seasons
will change us new

you know me…
i could not be stuck on you
if it weren’t true.

i was swimming,
my eyes were dark
til’ you woke me
and told me that opening
is just the start.

now i see you, til kingdom come
you’re the one i want
to see me for all the stupid shit i’ve done.

blooming up from the ground
three rounds and a sound
like whispering you know me
and you know me.

this was our song
i still see the lights
i can see them.

and the criss cross
of what is true, won’t get to us
cause you know me
i could not give up on you…

and the fog of what is right
won’t cover us cause you know me
i could not give up a fight.

fifth 4th.

deeps breaths.
what a day!

today, we had a bridal shower for my wonderful friend, emily :) it was such a lovely time. all the hard work and planning was well worth the fun we had this afternoon!

a few minutes ago… i submitted my application for school. not in portland. or eugene.
right here at home.

it’s funny how some things in life come full circle.
and how… sometimes, you have to see and go through a lot of things before realizing that so much of what you were looking for was right there in front of you — all along.

… i’m so excited to go back to school :) i’ve had my time. i’m ready.

i think, what  i am most excited for, is being able to hang out in my favorite coffee shops for hours and hours, in the town i love (and missed!) so much — doing homework :)

to starting again. cheers.

some words on my mind:

aesthetic —  a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of beauty, art, and taste and with the creation and appreciation of beauty.

zen — a Japanese school of Mahayana Buddhism emphasizing the value of meditation and intuition.

simplicity — the quality or condition of being plain or natural.

feeling limited. or… stifled.
can’t really figure out why.

i feel challenged.
and annoyed, a little.

i should write this down for real, though.
no use in putting it on the internet.

pictures soon. i really hope. or, something. i want to paint, read, and take photos today but am just not feeling it at the same time.
i don’t know where this blog is at right now.
i feel like i’m gravitating more and more for just being a place for my photos… and less about me.
i don’t know. i need to think about it.

getting organized.

hello, summer.

June 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

oh, heeey, summer. nice to see you :)

i’ve realized lately that my life is essentially comprised of:

  • making coffee for folks.
  • baking.
  • drinking tea.
  • taking photos of flowers and plants.

i can’t really complain.

this is my second summer with my camera… excited, hopeful and optimistic about creating some wonderful things.
