Do you ever just wish that some people actually understood who you were underneath? I do. College is a joke... it's just like highschool, except your living there. I don't fit in with any particular click, not the artsy, musicians, or intellectuals. i'm just a little too eccentric and introverted for that. People don't realize how super uncomfortable I am in big groups... anyways that's a whole other tangent. I am currently reading the biography of Marie Antoinette. It's super intriguing. It's almost 2'oclock in the morn, so I'm a little choppy with my sentences... but that's understandable eh?
O and I had a great time with my girl Meg tonight :) just being crazy as usual! We love so much of the same stuff it's crazy!
How fun is this digital art!? I absolutely love it, Lois van Baarle is amazing! And my inspiration to keep moving forward and pursuing what I want in life, whatever that may be. I can't believe that it's already the weekend again. I can't tell you how excited that makes me that this semester is going by just as fast, if not faster than the first. I already know that spring break is gonna be a blast. My body needs some vitamin d... the sun's rays. Its just too dang cold in Indy!!!
So I've always been fascinated with all things futuristic. That includes, Star Trek, Terminator, I Robot, futuristic clothing or gadgets. Shiny, new, sleek electronics have always intrigued me. And so... Apple's new gadget, the iPad.... is simply amazing. I mean I hate the name... it's retarded. But Steve Jobs can simply do no wrong. And releasing it in 2010? Genius! This is the perfect gadget to bring in the new futuristic decade. Too bad that I already got this new mac for christmas, or I would definitely grab one ASAP!!! I'll wait a few years.... :(
Snow... no sun... snow... still no sun.... lovely weather yesterday... but still no sun!!! What the heck!!!!! So sad.... I really need to see the sun. Other than complaining about the weather, theres really nothing else to do ... I'll probably just study like usual and maybe workout tonight. I luv it. Last night I attended a yoga class and it was SO incredibly relaxing!! I'm going to start doing it on my own or maybe with another friend. I can't explain how much stress was released last night.... it was... nice.
And the young ladies above inspire me to be myself and just be classss---ay... lol with a little spunk twisted in with it!!! I love them! Anita O'day, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald... the three Queens of Jazz!
So, I'm sitting in a coffee shop on campus listening to diplomatic son by vampire weekend. It's got this india reggae vibe... supah smooth... anyways.... I got out of my Art History class half an hour early, therefore giving me an hour break before my next class :) I love those moments lol. So I grabbed a salad and a searing hot cup of coffee, booted up my computer and sat down to blog :) I think I could eventually get a hang of this college thing... it'll take time for sure, but it's possible!
Oh and how cute are these wedding pics!!!!?? Sheena Jibson is amazing!!!!
How cute is this pic of Lenny Kravits and his little daughter Zoe? ADORABLE... and now she's all grown up with her own band and killer style!! I really like that she isn't riding her parents coattails... ( her mom is Lisa Bonet from the Cosby show) she's making a name for herself, by herself. And I think that's great. Here's a few pics of Zoe Isabella!
It's only saturday but this is the most relaxing weekend that I've ever had here on campus... I'm just being lazy, doing homework, watching random movies, and eating lucky charms. Oh and pondering about a tattoo... I really want one... but I'm going to wait til after I'm 21. I figure that's a good age. Oh, and this little owl tat made me smile lol....
Contrary to what most people think, an introvert is not simply a person who is shy. In fact, being shy has little to do with being an introvert! Shyness has an element of apprehension, nervousness and anxiety, and while an introvert may also be shy, introversion itself is not shyness. Basically, an introvert is a person who is energized by being alone and whose energy is drained by being around other people. Introverts are more concerned with the inner world of the mind. They enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings. They often avoid social situations because being around people drains their energy. This is true even if they have good social skills. After being with people for any length of time, such as at a party, they need time alone to "recharge." When introverts want to be alone, it is not, by itself, a sign of depression. It means that they either need to regain their energy from being around people or that they simply want the time to be with their own thoughts. Being with people, even people they like and are comfortable with, can prevent them from their desire to be quietly introspective. Being introspective, though, does not mean that an introvert never has conversations. However, those conversations are generally about ideas and concepts, not about what they consider the trivial matters of social small talk.
This totally and completely defines me in every way...people are always calling me depressed and "a loner" and even anti-social... but I'm just an INTROVERT! lol
This movie was incredible... well it depends on what kind of movie genres are your cup of tea; But if you like violent action flicks with a twist then you'll love 'The Book of Eli', it was so amazing. It had me on the edge of my seat the whole entire time... until the very end.
It was definitely worth my seven dollars and twenty-five cents, even on a college budget, and I'm pretty sure that I'm going to see it again this weekend!
O and Denzel looked very good for an old guy... he's the epitome of swagger...even if he was a little scruffy....lol
I took this picture about a year ago, its the street that my fam lives on... man I wish I was back home so bad. I don't know how much longer I can live in a dorm hall full of giddy girls... most of my friends back home are guys so I'm having to do some major adjusting! BAHH! lol
So unfortunately, 2nd semester is going by EXTREMELY slow... but on the bright side, I absolutely LOVE all of my classes. Every single one f my professors are cool, and i'm super thankful for that. Throughout my whole school career I've been blessed to have cool teachers, so hopefully I can keep that tradition going throughout college as well :) I'm just going to try to take one day at a time and not even think about spring break until its like a week away lol. But I CAN'T WAIT to go to Miami, ugh... so warm. I need the warmness in my life right now. I really have an extreme craving to bust out some shorts and a tank top,
but i guess that'll have to wait until my b-day, which conveniently takes place during spring break!
T'was the night before second semester, and all was.... just kidding lol.
Anyways, it is the night before second semester, and I'm EXTREMELY nervous, I have no idea what to expect, and that sort of freaks me out. I'm a gal who likes to know whats around the corner. I don't do well with surprises! But it's definitely weird, because my personality is the complete opposite when it comes to adventure, like I love getting on a plane and flying to a different country just for fun :) ( i've done that several times), but when it comes to school and my career; I just freeze up!
Man, I really hope that tomorrow goes well. Especially my intro to Communication Arts class.
I seriously feel unimportant, and useless. Well not really, but I really felt like saying that lol. I know I have a purpose in the world, but sometimes its extremely overwhelming to think that i'm going to college and I'm supposed to come out of it in 7 semesters and know exactly what I want to do, I mean I know that it doesn't have to be ingrained in stone or anything. But what really stresses me out is just not knowing whats ahead. Being me, I have to know what's coming like all the time.
Anyways, sorry to blab on about my life, I just needed a place to vent!
Hopefully the new year will get better, and a little more stress free! :)
