I always have! I'm pretty sure I even want a really cool tattoo of them some day.

I also decided to check Etsy for some sweet finds. It never leaves me empty handed..

It's on my bucket list to ride in one someday, hopefully more than once haha. Maybe I'll even own one! I wonder how much they cost.. Oh well, enjoy today




Best find ever, bar none. I don't have any full sized pics of it, but you'll just have to trust my artsy ones. I, being a huge fan of Darjeeling, freaked when I saw it. This uber similar in color monogram leather vintage Sampsonite suitcase won my heart for $6.

I am semi-tempted to paint the animals on it as Wes Anderson's brother did, but I really do love it the way it is :]



So, I think I've re-initiated my love for creating pen/ink drawings. I went to Texas Art the other day and probably spent more than I should have. However, quallity pens, sketchbooks, and ink do not come cheap. With that said, this is a piece I just started..
The image isn't that great because I took it with my phone. It still needs some work, but I think I might like it by the time I'm done haha. It is quite an arduous process, and the piece is larger than the scale I normally work at. I'm considering opening an art shop on etsy, I have another that I wanted to sell knits on, but during school I just don't have time for it. I just want to find a good local place around here that makes art quallity prints. I have everything for shipping, a paypal account, and I'm not afraid to attack the market, it really just barrels downt to time and resources. It would be nice to make a few $$ given the unexpected bills lately. We'll see what happens. I do have two shop fronts already on etsy, AIN'T and CITIES, and I sold one solitary item on the Cities acount haha. The other problem that I have is that I'd love to be an art rennassance woman. I love doing everything from taking pictures, to drawing, to making jewelry, to knitting, and so on. This is definitly a hindrance when it comes to developing. I'm thankful that I have the access and slight ability for all, but its difficult just to stick to one thing. I wish I had time and space for all haha. I wish I could find a darkroom in the area too so that I could finish out all my film. I miss processing. Anyways, that's enough whining for now. I have a TON of Geology homework :[

Updates I guess..

Unfortunatly, the harddrive to my computer is broken. I'm currently using my dads, which is probably why I haven't posted in awhile. I miss all my pictures and music and everything. Its ridiculous how attatched people get to technology. I had to write a paper on it recently for my English class. I personally think that for those who know how to utilize what it has to offer, it is more beneficial than harmless.. but still, we get pretty attatched. This should be more like it..

I also recently lost my car keys during a run through one of the more wooded parks in Houston. Quite a treck it was to back track another 2-3 miles aimlessly searching for the darn things only to come up empty handed. Today I found out that my key has a microchip in it, and to replace the key alone sin remote would be around 200 clams. I might as well just have my paychecks made out to the trash can. That seems a bit more probable.

Yesterday was valentine's day (I left it un-capitalized on purpose. Its a "rhetorical trope" to deconstruct the language. Obviously my English class is paying off haha). I've never really looked forward to it much, I don't dislike it.. however I think once you stop throwing parties for it in grade school, there's no use for it anymore. Anyways, my friend Makenzie and I went to the park for a bit, to church, and then out to eat at this great hole in the wall Mexican restaurant. I'm pretty sure everyone there thought we were a couple hahaha. That's probably the most I've really 'celebrated' since 5th grade. After that I went home, cuddled with Meowy, and fell asleep with the Tenenbaums. Overall it was nice haha.


I also had Funky Formal for Wyldlife (Jr. High version of Younglife) this weekend. My dress last year was pretty great, but this year I found an even better hot little number probably owned by someone's grandmother in the early 80s (excuse the grammar). Complete with outrageous geometric purple and green patterns, a ridiculous smocked waistband, and snazzy shoulderpads, I could do no wrong. I got ready with the girls and we had a sleepover afterwards. Who doesn't love good ol' 80s dress up, dancing, and sleepovers with cheesy ice skater movies. If you're looking for a good laugh, try renting Ice Castles :] haha. Who knew blind people could ice skate so well?

Just felt like leaving a few blurbs, that is all.
