it's a beautiful morningggg




rise and shine! i've actually been up for awhile now. 7:03 to be exact. regardless, i have just now found the time to get to a computer. i've been sitting in my bed all day doing absolutely nothing. glorious! i have to rest up because tomorrow i'm working a fashion show in the hamptons. i'm not really looking forward to this but whatever. as you all know i'm interning for the children's couture company bonnie young. i seriously wish that i could have more then half of these clothes!!! kids are growing up so fast today (at least it feels like to me).

anyways, today it is absolutely amazing outside. i wish that i could motivate myself to go outside. i guess it doesn't feel like summer to me right now. i think my friend's are going to force me. i'll pot something more interesting later. i'm sure i'll have stories to say tomorrow.

Be Pink. Stay Pink. Be Pink.



Pink has been my favorite color since I was born...probably even before then. It might have something to do with the fact that pink is the unofficial family color. I do think for myself, but it is a requirement to love pink. I would have to say that I never really appreciated the saying that my family loved to quote.


be pink
stay pink
be pink

It was in the 8th grade when I finally began to understand what it actually meant. It was that same year that GooGoo (my grandfather died). He was pretty much the happiest man alive. He always had a smile and was able to make even the most stern person smile. When he passed away the whole family and community took a hit. Before he died, the last thing he ever said to me was to be pink. It hit me right then. Being pink was about being happy, living life to the fullest and sharing whatever you have with the world. Needless to say, I have been pink ever since that moment. I made the earrings above today just for fun. I love to wear pink because it always reminds me of my family. Just thought I would share the story behind my love of the color pink...not many people get it.

The National Anthem



so i didn't really know what i wanted to post about today because i'm sure everyone was doing the same thing that i was doing all day. barbecues, boating (if you have access to one of course!), basically just relaxing with close friends and/or family. i did all of the above. i must admit that my family is very patriotic and are extremely proud to be Americans so it goes without saying that the Star Spangled Banner was drilled into my brain, not only by my preschool teacher, but my grandparents as well (yes, us cousins would stand in a line and serenade the family...by choice fyi). so anyways, because not everyone knows our National Anthem i'm going to post the lyrics. they are beautiful and never forget what the men and the women in the military service who have lost their lives and what they have done for us and our country. God Bless you all.

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!


Happy Memorial Day Darlings.

Have You Ever Gone On A Spontaneous Drive?


Well I have. You know when you have just one of those days. You sit in bed and do nothing all day and then at around 5 you think "Hey, what am I going to for the rest of the day?" Well, that was my day yesterday. I suppose I have been having writers block for my blog and was trying to think of something to do so I had something to say on my blog. Well, I ended up doing absolutely nothing. My friends Cait and Kevin and I went for an hour long drive to nowhere. We just got in the car after dinner, got on a road and kept driving on it. We had no idea where we were going. There was no point to our drive and you know what? It was probably the most fun we had in awhile.


There was nothing to it. We talked about nonsense and listened to some music. There was no pressure to go out and see people or come up with a plan, we were just living in the moment. I just wish that I got a picture of us. I also wish that I had a scarf in my hair with oversize sunglasses...we were in a convertible so of course that would be our look!

Life Update



I'm home. Finals week is over! Truthfully, it's been over for about 2 weeks now, I just have a tendency to ignore all things involving technology. I could not wait to leave school and get home. Is this a problem? I feel like no one really wants to go home. Needless to say, I'm a much happier person overall. I have so much to look forward to this summer. Everything is coming together so far **knock on wood**.


I have been working for the same fashion company that I did last year. I'm loving it so much more, maybe it's because I understand how much my hard work is paying off and helping the company? Even though I am committing every day I still love it. (aren't I so annoying when I'm in a good mood? I just love everything) the fast paced life is what calms me. I have a tendency to over think things and that usually happens when I'm idle.

Is this odd? Most people relax when everything is calm, quiet, and organized. I guess i just love the constant things to do and not have to think too much about what else is going on. Hey, I warned everyone that I was a shallow person! Regardless, I will be sure to make a much much much better effort when it comes to tipsy because I'm sure my life is just about to get interesting.

xoxo darlings!

AHHH



sorry i have not posted in awhile, the internet has been down at my house since friday AND finals have been going on so it's even more frustrating. what a bad time to lose internet. however, i do find it totally ironic that right after i make a post about how i don't need the internet i lose it. whatever. i'm fine...my school work not so much!

i'll write a more interesting post after the finals madness has ended. if you have finals too and are reading this GOOD LUCK! i hope your creative energy is not diminishing as quickly as mine is.

on that note, maybe you guys can help me with ideas because i am out of them. for one of my classes i have to make a video answering the question " what, if anything, is better about "real interaction" vs. "virtual interaction"? (it can be anything...political, social, psychological...anything really)

i was thinking of maybe doing something with fashion and show real life fashion shows, secondlife fashion shows, vitual shopping vs real, style icons in both worlds, but i'm not really sure if that is what my teacher is going for.

another idea i had was to talk about real and virtual interactions socially and make a video about support from each, how you meet people, and things along those lines.

i feel kind of weird about asking for help with this but whatever, getting some feedback/other ideas would be wonderful and i will gladly help you with your work!!!

bye darlings
