Melodically Sad

Her heart did whisper that he had done it for her. But it was a hope shortly checked by other considerations, and she soon felt that even her vanity was insufficient, when required to depend on his affection for her— for a woman who had already refused him.... -Pride & Prejudice...Jane Austen

So I stayed home from school today but didn't get much done....too busy thinking about my future as a college student. But I did manage to edit an old photo...i luv it.

New Camera!

"A good snapshot stops a moment from running away."  -Eudora Welty

"There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see, is what we are."- Ernst Haas

"Photography is a way of feeling, touching, loving. What you have caught on film is captured remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." -Aaron Siskind

I LOVE every single one of these quotes... it describes how I feel about photography, one of my many passions. Which only adds to the confusion of pin-pointing a major for college. Maybe it'll come to me in my sleep...*sighs hopefully* 

Anyways enough moping.. I told my Journalism teacher about wanting a old camera that uses film and she recommended a Pentax as of now I'm bidding on this lovely beauty pictured below!


Aren't these pics gorgeous? I took them outside of my school campus because I had a lil time to spare in journalism...I absolutely love the feeling that these pictures give me. Complete bliss. 
Wish I could have sat under those very trees today and read Jane Eyre. I cant wait for spring for that very's too dang cold to do that now. 


Look at me, Im as helpless as a kitten up a tree;
And I feel like Im clingin to a cloud,
I can t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand.
Walk my way,
And a thousand violins begin to play,
Or it might be the sound of your hello,
That music I hear,
I get misty, the moment youre near.
Cant you see that youre leading me on? 
And its just what I want you to do,
Dont you notice how hopelessly Im lost
Thats why Im following you.
On my own,
When I wander through this wonderland alone,
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
Im too misty, and too much in love.
Too misty,
And too much
In love.....

O how I love the sacred innocence of this song. Ella's buttery smooth voice puts me in that good ole' mood. The one you can't describe no matter how hard you try....

Here come's the sun!

So today I just got back from Canada! I had a fun spending time with friends that I hadn't seen in years, and I enjoyed making new memories with them. Unfortunately the past few days went by way too fast! I am now currently counting down the days until we board the Zandaam for the beloved Caribbean cruise that we take every year. I CAN'T WAIT! This unusual amount of sun that we're having in Kansas City is making me ready for the summer that's not coming for another 4 months or so. 
Anyways I have a party to go to tonight, so I had a some trouble deciding what I should wear because of the unexpected vitamin d power outside, but after a few minutes I decided on a simple black top with my fav miss sixty ripped jeans heavily accesorized with tons of bracelet, gold hoops and a hippie headband. I had fun soaking up the sun today. Hope I can say the same for this imaginary "summer" night!
