I am not bound to succeed

To live a feeling
Much like Madonna, from time to time I like to reinvent myself. Perhaps it’s part of the reason I enjoy ever-changing trends, there is always something new to try out. With style blogs nowadays it’s easy to find a little inspiration (the lazy way to find ideas QUICK!). With this said, I really like tattoos but I don’t think I could settle on just one. Yes, I know I can get...
I am bound to be true
The temperature was exceptional that day! I was neither hot, nor cold; winter wear is great, except that oftentimes I am hiding behind a great big coat. Spring-like weather is much more bearable. Wearing white Express blouse, Zara pants, and black patent Aldo oxfords. Photos taken by none other than Boyfriend, also known as Trey Penton. Check out some of his photography! We took...
Disturbed by Science
When I was younger I believed in reincarnation. I thought that one day after I died I would be reborn again, but that I wouldn’t remember my past life (or lives). Then one day I was reading one of those encyclopedia books for children with all sorts of information. I liked them because of the pretty pictures, but I must have read them too because I stumbled upon some facts about our solar...
A Lucy Girl
Deep sleep is natural to me, and so it was very unusual that I awoke last night during a storm. I don’t even know if it was the storm that woke me up or if was coincidence; I saw flashes of light coming through my window and heard the light clicking of (my doggy) Lucy’s little nails on the wood floor. I think she was scared, so I let her up on my bed that is four times her height...
Throughout the day really catchy (often, obnoxious) songs make their way in to my head and overstay their visit. Most often Boyfriend is the lucky lad to hear them; I don’t grace just anyone to my honeyed voice. Sometimes it’s the newest hit on the radio, other times it’s new music I’ve come upon on my Internet Adventures. Unfortunately for myself and Boyfriend, most of the time we are not...
Look provocative while salting shells until they have cooked al-dente; stuff shells with ricotta; I mean really stuff them, more is more; place yummy pasta sauce on bottom of cooking pan; arrange shells; cook ~350F; devour.
Oui a la pants
Pastel Sunglasses and Kimichi Blue Paperbag Trouser It is not summer yet, but the sun shines even though the wind may be cruel. If it would be socially acceptable I would run from building to building regardless of my shoes (lucky for me I was wearing chucks this morning… and I ran… when no one was looking… at 6am…). Color changing sunglasses and sunshine covering my...
Flower, how typical; Boats; Me, working my parka and layers Trying to stay warm in cold temperatures, whilst the weather has been confusing my now thin Floridian blood, I’ve been trying out this thing known to Northern parts as layering. You see, dear reader, I come from a far off Eastern Europe where a thick duvet of white snow covers the vast land in December. Once upon a time I...
Dear reader, I’ve been hiding. Hiding from the internet. Furthering my mind. Delving deep into unknown subjects. Embracing nerdsom. Expanding my already vast vault of general knowledge. Reading a really long book… 450 pages with the tiniest font possible, the book was Jane Eyre. To be honest, my expectations weren’t very high, although I had heard a number of good...
I just wanted to show you some of the Wonderful Things I brought home after a day of vintage shopping. Behold: The 70’s, in a single dress, perfect for any occasion. I think I may wear it for the first day back to school, what do you think? Isn’t it fab??? Isn’t it? I didn’t have any volume in my hair and I refused to detract from the beauty of this jewel of a dress, so I...
Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your...
Living up to my Word
If you don’t have integrity, you have nothing. Which is exactly why I have provided proof I am living up to the expectations of my previous entry. Behold: Secret Goth I forgot to mention this, but Goth kids are typically Vitamin D deficient and pale. They sometimes use make up to achieve this look, but since I am not a real Goth, I am naturally pale (jealous much, Goths?). Also, no...
How to be a Secret Goth
Recently a friend of mine revealed to me that I, along with another friend, were most likely Goths in a past life. Considering she has no confirmed psychic abilities, don’t believe her. But since the subject was brought up I took a good few moments to ponder this revelation. Upon close inspection of my closet, I admit I have Goth tendencies. I can sometimes be what one may refer to as a...
The city streets and rooftops with Trey.
1. Marked by or showing consideration for others, tact, and observance of accepted social usage. 2. Refined; elegant: polite society. This morning I had work at 6 o’clock in the morning because I was covering a shift until 9AM, when my own shift until noon would begin, meaning I had to be up at 4:30 (that is AM) in order to make myself People Friendly. I get to work, but what...
I love the New Year. I wish it could happen more than once a year, like two times a year! Back to school in Fall is almost like a New Year, but it’s not quite the same. No! Not quite, and soon there will be no more school to go back to, leaving me with only one New Year. There is something about beginnings and endings that can be a wonderful, overwhelming mix of emotions. It is all too...
This year is for the new, for the expected but yet...
I have barely spent any time on the internet in the past two days and it feels as if I’ve been on vacation. This is a hard fact to accept because I actually really like the internet. It was wonderful, perhaps not for some people around me because I complained about, but not limited to the following: being too cold being too hot being tired being sleepy (there is a legitimate difference...
