Some of you might know from my Facebook that i've had a hard time recently. On April 17th my father passed away. I'm going through the process of moving into an apartment and getting things settled. I have terribly missed reading your pages. I can't say for sure when i'll start blogging again, I might even start over on a completely new blog...i don't know. If I do I will post a link.

Weekend Getaway Part 2

This is the second and final part of my vacation. Day two I went to Nashville, Tennessee. I didn't have as much time as I did on day one but still got to see a lot.


SHOPPING: Social Graces - Lovely print and stationary shop on the corner. You can buy your own wax stamp kit. Simply Lovely.

Pangaea - Very eclectic; purses, sheets, clothes, hardwares, books, games, jewelery, and more. I bit on the higher side though. I saw a light switch cover at BLISS(KNOXVILLE) for $4. They had the exact same ones but for $7.

BookMan/BookWoman - It's an used book store, but don't be fooled. These are rare first edition books. I'm talking $195-250 books. I felt rather uncomfortable because I didn't even want to touch the books for fear of damaging them. But they do happen to have "regular price" books you just have to find them. Which some people enjoy!

ClothingXchange: Think of this as one jump up from a Goodwill.

Retropolitan - This is such a nice interior design store. It's a retro based style but still nice. Not over the top or anything. Even if your not looking to buy furniture or decorative accents I would still recommend going in and taking a look.

Sites: Parthenon - Let me explain this. The park surrounding the parthenon is free. You can walk around, feed the ducks, "see the parthenon". BUT if you want to go in it's $6 for an adult. The only mythology related art they have is on the top floor where the Athena statue is. AND again let me be clear, you can only take photos on the top floor as well. Not that there is much to take a photo of on the first two floors. Its not even mythology related. So if you just want to see the athena statue then I would say go for it. But if you are looking for something more I wouldn't recommend paying to go in. Just sit out side and get a nice view of the building.

Lunch: Fido's - It's rather convenient because it's on the same street all those shops I mentioned are on. It has a nice selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and sides. You are looking at around $8 a plate though.

Weekend Getaway Part 1

Hay Lovelies, This Monday and Tuesday I drove up to Knoxville and Nashville Tennessee to spend time with two wonderful ladies. I had such a fun time and I want to share the experience just encase you ever want to venture there your self!


Lunch: Oodles Uncorked - It's an Italian restaurant with a great atmosphere. Some of the menu items can be pricey ($$) but if you go on monday they have a lunch special of spaghetti and meatballs for $5.oo. It was great, a bit hot with the peppers and onions in the meat. They also have a "be your own chef". You get to pick a noodle and a sauce for $6.

Dessert: Marble Slab Creamery - We grabbed a cone at this sweet shop. I picked the praline, very light. They also have mixes to throw in from sprinkles to reeces pieces. Its right beside oodles so its a convenient choice.

Shopping: Bliss & Bliss Home - Both are different, stores across the square from each other. Bliss home is nice but I would recommend just going to Bliss for vacationers. It has more than just clothes. I bought some old wood printer letters for $4. They happened to be on sale for 75% off.

Look Alive

Well lovelies it's become apparent that I won't be able to completely finish my list before my 21st birthday. The final day is less than a month a way and I realistically don't see it happening. But that's okay because I will finish the list. The one I'm having trouble with is my bedroom. I wanted it to be the way I wanted. well it's looking more like this. I never wanted a "Bare" looking room or a minimalist style. I wanted more of an old bookstore feel. The walls covers, random objects, different patterns and textures. If my room looked anything like this room here I would be happy with it.

Project Finished

I needed a place for my keys and what-nots, but i'm a cheap. Coat hangers cost anywhere from $7-10. So I went and found some cheap spoons. I got four for a dollar. Spray painted them flat black, Drilled a hole in the middle, and mounted them on the wall. Make sure if you do this project to check where your wiring is.

This project only cost me $1.08 because I already had a drill and black spray paint. If you don't have a drill this project is probably not going to be cheap and you would be better to just buy hangers from the store. Black spray paint is only 98 cents but in the US you have to be 18 to purchase it.

Tune Tuesday

I realize that I have missed a few Tune Tuesdays. I hope this makes up for it. The song this week is Crooked Legs from The Acorns. They're a Canadian band that started back in 2003. The Acorns have an indie folk sound that is easy and fun to listen to. Enjoy.

What I'm Working On

I am in the process of frosting my bedroom windows. I'll tell you why I chose this route. I have a cat ladies and gentlemen. One that loves to sleep on my window sill. When I had curtains she would shed on them and leave huge grey furry spots. Very noticeable. I left my curtains when I switched bedrooms, since my new one had blinds. She destroyed them. Broke them clean in half. So this seems like the best compromise. She can sleep on the sill and I don't have to work about constantly cleaning up after her. The down side though is that it's only an adhesive. In so many years it will peel off. But for $30 I think it's a great deal.

With Love...

Twenty one years ago to this day a brilliant and beautiful girl was born. She has traveled down roads with the wind blowing through her hair, Detached and reinvented herself, smiled and laughed with chosen few. She happens to be my best friend. Someone I have had the pleasure to know for around eight years. I detest that I can't give her hugs and wishes in person on this special day, but I hope that when she comes home those days be the best they can be.

Time Out

I realize I need to not rely on others so much. I try not to do things on my own because i'm afraid. I know I need to change. To stop waiting and do things on my own, by my self, and be independent. If I seem distant lately it's probably because i'm trying to figure out how to be my own person.

March 3, 2011


I seem to have missed Tune Tuesday. I've been fairly busy trying to get things in order and finished before their respected deadlines! There are a few I would like to do but I can't because my best friend reads this and I don't want to spoil her big day! But after I will fill you all in. Today I have a few trailers. I can't wait to see these movies.

Time and Time Again

If a being asked me what being human was like. I would reply with something similar to this.

We are flawed, we make mistakes,
you could even say we "sin",
we destroy and create,
we love and we hate,
we dream and we deny,
we weave truths and we lie,
we live and we die.
We have loved and hated.
We are selfish and sincere
Lazy and defiant
caring and resilient
we are human.

Pendants and Feathers

I've been slightly obsessing about caravans and gypsies. They're an interesting subject but to be honest the idea of traveling in a mini home, meeting new people, and using your craft is tempting. Do not miss understand when I use the word "craft". I don't mean sex or magic. I look at it the same way I think of a hobo, a traveler without a permanent home, source of income, and has a specific craft "wood carving, welding, pottery". What brought on my renewed obsession was this man who makes caravans. I found his prices slightly out of my range but not unattainable. Though I imagine I could find a small caravan and DIY it myself if I so pleased.

What are your thoughts about gypsies?

Tune Tuesday

Orion Rigel Dommisse is not just a long name, it's an indie folk band! The sound is very whimsical because of the violin and fair voice, but her tone and lyrics give off a dark twist. Want to find out more? Just visit her myspace page by clicking here. You can listen to her song "Fake Yer Death" in the video below. Enjoy!


This week has been fairly calm but with a reoccurring theme. People put significance in age. The age gap between lovers, the age of adulthood, the different generations and the stigma that follows them. I find age irrelevant in most cases. Simply because someone can be 17 and be mature just as someone 35 can still be immature. It's all in how a person acts not how many candles they have on their cake.

A dream/nightmare

In a lake of wet moss arose serpents,
a Hundred black eyes
no reflections, only bottomless chasms
an evil among the naive
An inescapable world deep in the catacombs of my mind...

February 15, 2011

Tune Tuesday

Bird Automatic is equivalent to a cool breeze on a sweltering summer day. The dream of floating through the clouds. An alternative pop group from Oz. You can venture to their website but it will reroute you to their myspace. They are fairly new with their debut ablum "Not Morning People" just out in 2010. Suburbs is my favorite from them so far, you can listen to the song below. Please excuse the video for it is not the official since they haven't made one yet. It's fan made.

The Process Needs...

Most of you know what my "21 before 21 list" is about. I only have a few left and I have high hopes that I will finish them all before my preset date. Right now i'm in the process of finishing my bedroom. I finally wanted my room to copy what's inside my head. There are a lot of things I need to finish working on and here is a list to give you an idea. The bold means i'm currently working on them.

Book Review: Winkie

I recently came across the psychological drama that is "Winkie". Mr. Case created a story that seems strange at first but becomes warm and natural as it goes. You follow Winkie as he/she evolves from a toy like presence to an anomaly of his/her own making. You experience his/her dreams, hopes, fears, anguish, troubles, and love from the beginning. I dare say I cried by the end of it. This is an extremely unique book that looks at the point of view of a stuffed bear. The only negative I have with it was the actual ending. I felt it was too abrupt.

I rated this book a 4 out of 5.

Tune Tuesday

Crystal Castles is the experimental electronic band from Toronto. They have become rather popular with their fan base in the hundreds of thousands. Although they've been labeled electronic their music is very aggressive and loud. You could even go so far as to throw in screamo, as the main singer screams(wails) most of their songs. It's very noisy and harsh sounding. I suppose you're wondering why I even like the band? I heard "Doe Deer" and it stuck in my head. I just couldn't help from like it. It's that necessary evil you need to help unwind. I suppose that doesn't make much since. You know how if a room is too clean or bare is seems sterile? So you decorate your room with layers of things that interest you. If your brave enough to listen the song is below, enjoy!

Checking Off

This past weekend I was able to, with much excitement, mark two more off my "21 before 21" list. I still have hopes that I will finish it before the appointed due date. There are only 5 more things I need to achieve! There is a tab in the upper right hand corner if you want to view the list.

(check)Number 1: Take a road trip without the parents. I drove up to visit my best amigo. I usually wait until she comes home but this time, as I had promised, I went to see her. We later left and drove even further to our next destination...

(check)Number 10: Go to a Concert! We attended a "Tokyo Police Club" concert. I had an amazing time. It's something I had wanted to experience for a while. We were lucky to get up front, after standing an hour in the cold *cough*. I could feel the vibrations in my chest, dum dum dum. The clapping was infectious. I won't forget it. I slightly hope that like the "heart" on my side mirror, the stamp on my wrist doesn't wear off...


February 3, 2011


My collage for February. Plus this weekend I will be attending my first concert, pictures will be taken and memories will be made! What do you think of when you hear February?

Tune Tuesday

Lonely Drifter Karen is such a worldly soul, having lived in a hand full of different cultures. Her music is crisp with a loose melody. Your foot will tap along with the tune. You'll possibly think of Wonderland, maybe even more so now. Karen's indie cabaret style is unique to say that least. You can listen to her song "The Owl Moans Low" in the video below, enjoy!

Work 101

As you might know, I have a job now. It's not glamorous by any means. But I am very grateful to have it. But not all the customer are gems. There are 3 types of customers I can not stand!

1. (when an item doesn't scan): IT'S FREE, I BET IT'S FREE, IF IT DOESN'T SCAN IT'S FREE! I assume you think you are being funny and smart, well I can assure you pale I hear that at a minimum of 3 times a day. It's have become rather OLD!

2. (they walk in and i've just sat down after cleaning the back or front) YOU LOOK TIRED, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TIRED IS! Um sorry did I say I had the worst job in the world, I did not. Please shut your face!

3. YOU NEED TO BE A NURSE OR TEACHER! Well thank you Mr. Stereotype. I love that your mind stopped growing after the 30s and assume I need to take one of those roles to feel fulfilled in life. Damn me having a vagina!

really people, really? Please for one moment before you open your mouth will you assume that I have a handle on my life and i'm quite content with where I am at the present time. I do have a plan and i'm in the midst of it now. I will not be changing it anytime soon. Have a nice day!

January 25, 2011

Tune Tuesday

Tis the last Tuesday in January! The lucky band this time is Arkells. They began in 2008 in Ontario, Canada. YAY, Canadians! They have a nice alternative soulful style. They slightly remind me of coldplay but better. I'm sure a coldplay fan just shot an imaginary dart at me. They are definitely worth the listen, my favorite is "Oh, the boss is coming". You can listen below, and ENJOY!

January 23, 2011

pause and rewind

Sometimes I get in a mood. It's not a good mood, it causes me to want to delete and de-clutter. It's not so much that I feel like I need to clean, I just get this itch to start over. It's no good, get rid of it! I delete and delete because its a fairly simple process. But I know that I go over board and if i don't stop myself i'll end up deleting everything...

Movie Review: The Fall

Possibly the most gorgeous movie I have ever watched. Visually it will take your breath away. The plot will demand your attention even after it ends. Tarsem Singh created a world within a world for every single unbelievable site you see is real. The crew shot in over 18 countries and used as little visual edits as possible. Every character and object you see has significant meaning.

The story centers around Roy Walker and Alexandria. He tells her of an epic tale but soon his intentions become clearer as reality and the story start to merge. A darkness over takes them, a dark reality that we all try to ignore. But even in the face of death and depression there is a small light screaming "Let him live"!

My personal rating for the movie is a 5 out of 5. I doubt I will see a movie as impressive as this one for a while.

January 18, 2011

Tune Tuesday

Fun. is well HILARIOUS and unique! I love their indie story telling style. They started around 2008 in New York. They were signed through Fueled By Ramen. This indie band is certainly getting popular and obtaining more listeners everyday. My favorite song thus far is "Be Calm". The video is below, please do listen and enjoy!

How They Met...

My grandfather, John, at the time was dating a girl from the mountain. His best friend, Reed, would was dating my grandmother's sister, Mary Joe. my grandmother, Margie, was out watering the flowers one afternoon when the boys came to pick up Mary Joe. They left on their date as expected but the next time Mary Joe asked if Margie would go out on a date with John, since the last date he had stopped seeing the girl on the mountain.

Margie replied, "OKAY, but only this once. He's very arrogant!" ending with a face she makes...

They got married on Christmas Eve 1949

p.s. Mary Joe and Reed also married.

Tune Tuesday

Sunny and the Sunsets are stuck in my head. Their alternative folky tunes make me want to Rollerblade down a boardwalk be-bopping away. They started back in 2007 and are currently on tour in Australia. My favorite so far is "Too Young To Burn", you can listen to it below. ENJOY!

"We give this life to our children and teach them to hate this place."

I know that if I truly delved deep in to these topics this would become a 20 page post. To keep from doing that i'm going to shorten it to a few main topic bullets!

+ Do you feel that it is the parents fault on how their children turned out?
+ Are the older & younger generations becoming hateful?
+ Do we forget how beautiful this planet can be and is?
+ Did we fuck up?
+ Why are we becoming lazy and tired people?
+ Why do people push things on you?
+ Why do we fill the pockets of people who are complete idiots?
+ Why won't we help people any more?
+ When did "pills" become the answer?
+ How are we going to make it better?
+ And will someone please smile...

Hair Virgin No More!

I finally colored my hair the other day. We settled on an auburn color. When I went inside I didn't know the first thing about hair coloring but i'm so glad I went to the lady I did. She sat me down and explained that I have level 3 hair color and originally the color I wanted was an 8. She let me know that going that extreme your first time will ruin your hair. So we settle for a color in the 5-6 range. And I am completely happy with it. Next time though I will go purple, I was just worried about it since I have a job now but everyone said it would be okay!

January 6, 2011

Words on a page..

Starting January first I have been writing things that have left an impression on me. Whether the events of that day are happy or not I want to remember. While doing this I have realized that I suck at writing with a pen, for some reason my hand writing looks better and less sloppy when written in pencil. Geez.

I hope that whether you record it or not, that you have something special happen each and every day.


January 4, 2011

Tune Tuesday

The First Tune Tuesday of the New Year is Mindy White. She's an experienced musician from being in various bands like (Lydia) and (States). She decided to go solo in early 2010 and the music she makes is simply lovely. Her music is very soft and clean. My favorite thus far is "We Are Birds". You can listen to it below, Enjoy!

I Declare: 2011

Strong feelings have made me determine that this year will be amazing. Over the past week, while off the internet, I began to ponder about things. "It's not about the destination but the journey" consumed me for a while. What if I applied that phrase to more things. For one example instead of ordering books from the internet or getting the bookstore to, I simple try and obtain it on my own. It might take a month or years to find the book but would I not feel this amazing emotion once I finally found the book?

This year, the year I proclaimed great, my resolution is to be an adventurer. Possibly in all aspects of life. What is your resolution or declaration for 2011?

Number 6: Check

FINALLY! I can say with much gusto that I have a job. It took almost two years but something finally came through. Hopefully since I have a job now I will be able to reach my other goal of accumulating 1,000 dollars before my birthday. I think this can be accomplished. So far all the people i've worked with have been incredibly nice and helped me learn the tricks of the trade. Luck as also spared me any encounters with angry people but I know that will come. It is inevitable.

Hopefully you lovelies had a glorious holiday! I can honestly say that this was one of my best. Everyone was happy, the energy, and the memories were just right. I also want to write a big THANK YOU to Namine from (The Clutter Box) for sending me the gift of literature.

Happy New Year Everyone, Let's make this one count!
