where is my mind


I've been bumping into my friends all this week, some of whom I rarely see, so it's been interesting to say the least. Considering it is the end of the year, I've been doing a lot of things differently that I could benefit from the new year. Such as, I cleaned my apartment today and got rid of things I no longer needed. I am making the effort to shape myself into a better artist. I've been drawing recently and painting more often. I am researching new places to live and jobs to apply to.

I don't know. It's time for a change. I have work early tomorrow, so I'm limiting myself from fun until tomorrow night's festivities. My last day will actually be on Monday since I started 4 days after the 1st. How exciting. :)

I actually did not end up going to the Inception party. Would've been cool, but I ended up going to a store to buy pants and art supplies to start my Etsy project. Sometimes I'm very indecisive and don't follow things through, and end up doing something completely different; I'm just weird like that I suppose.

I'm going over to my friend's house tonight for dinner and wine. That, I'm pretty certain I will go to, hah.

These next few months are going to be so crazzyy omg. I'm almost kind of scared.

I hope tomorrow's photo will be better. The lack of natural lighting puts me in a hard place. I've had a splitting headache for most of the day. Seems like after I finish this tea, I'll have to go to bed.

It's interesting what things you manage to create for dinner when you hardly have any food.

This was meant to be yesterday's photo, but I didn't have the time to post it. I took a shower, took this picture, and proceeded to get ready to go out. John and I took the train to this bar in Wicker Park where we got this sweet deal of getting in for free and getting 3 free drinks. It was well worth it. We met up with a few friends and danced and drank and ate pizza. My friend Dennis actually made a petition for me so I could run for mayor (hahaha). I don't think it will happen, but wouldn't that be nice? I need 12,000 signatures!

We got home pretty late, and ended up falling asleep shortly after that. I woke up this morning and went to work, dreading it the whole time.

So, here is yesterday's photo. My apologies.

I feel like I need to start leaving myself little notes every where that give me words of encouragement. Sometimes I find it hard to get through everyday. I'm realizing more and more how much time passes by. I have a stack of post-it's, so perhaps I should put some good use to them, and make myself feel better.

Back when I was in college taking all my art classes, the art club had this entertaining idea involving post-it's. They drew up diagrams to construct huge Mario video game characters (like Mario, and the mushrooms, etc.) out of only post-it paper. The result was pretty awesome. My photography class had a really huge window that overlooked part of the campus and there was the huge Mario planted on the window. It looked really great in the sunlight with all the different colors of post-it paper. I still remember watching those pieces of paper fall off one by one as the time went on.

I know, I should probably clean my camera.

Everything is a blur.

Ain't it funny how you get all these unexplained bruises after a night of drinking? I found a pretty wicked bruise on my left thigh, like...how the hell did that get there?!

I'm going out again tonight, even though I told myself I would chill out. Let's see how this night goes.

I am so so so tired.

I worked extra early today, but got out even earlier. So, I made the decision to make French onion soup. It turned out perfectly. I have no complaints. Not to brag, but this is the best French onion soup I've ever eaten. I still don't know what possessed me to make soup in 85 degree weather, but I had a craving that needed to be satisfied.

Shortly after that we fell asleep on the floor, and moved to the bed. I believe we ended up sleeping from 4pm to 10:30pm. I woke up and realized, once again, shit, I have to take my photo. Here is my half assed, tired photo of the day.

We had planned on going out to dinner tonight to use this Groupon we had and we planned on doing laundry (which really needed to be done) and now, I'm too tired to move at all. Quite mad at myself for that.

I've cooled off a bit since these happenings. Karma will be on my side with this one. Ain't it great? Today I spent time backcombing my hair, I can already see the dreads forming. It's quite an exciting feeling. I feel like this is a new beginning, a journey. Of course, I suppose it's hard to tell from a photo.

I wish it was Friday already, at 6pm to be exact, when I get out of work. I'll head to the House of Blues and get my groove on to Sound Tribe Sector 9 and Bassnectar! Ahhh. Oh, and I'll be doing the same thing on Saturday.

I'm also very very happy to announce that I will have my very own solo exhibition next month! I'm sure a lot of work and detail is going to be involved, which means that I should probably jump on things right about....now. I'll give you all the details later when I know more.

Well-rested. Today feels like a good day, despite having work later, but it's okay. The weather has been much better it seems like. I feel like Fall is beginning to mark it's presence, which is good. I'm excited for Fall. The Summer is always nice, but not as nice as Fall. I'm excited to watch the trees on my block turn in fiery colors and drift from the branches onto the cars and streets. I began to appreciate Chicago Falls not too long ago. Summer was always my season because of the lack of school, the late nights, the hot weather, swimming and soaking up the sun, flowers and plants growing about...but Fall, there's something very special about it.
