where is my mind


It's supposed to storm pretty badly tomorrow. Apparently, it's going to be up to 55 mph winds! I kinda just want to stay in all day, but unfortunately I have a lot of things to do. Oh well. My friend is coming to Chicago and spending the night as a couchsurfer. Excited for the next 2 days, but also very nervous.

We just came back from the OK Go show tonight. I'm quite surprised it ended so early. Maybe because it's a Sunday? I don't really care because I had fun. This is the 8th time I've seen OK Go, and I feel like they get better every time I see them. Tonight was no exception. At every show I go to, I always pick up the confetti on the floor and stuff them into my pockets so I can use it for moments like this.

Damian Kulash stood right next to me when he does his routine of running into the middle of the crowd and playing a song. The head of his guitar was practically in my face haha. Damn, he looked so damn fine in that beautiful blue suit. You better work.

I hope everyone enjoyed their 10.10.10!

Posted 19 minutes later, but this was taken shortly before midnight. I was tired all day long. Slept for most of the time after work. Later I made dinner and pumpkin pie. It's still too early to eat it. Grrr.

There's a disco in my bathtub.

I think I'm going to have to start doing mini series throughout this project. It's hard to come up with new ideas day in and day out. It's hard to be creative sometimes. I need to focus on one thing at a time and perfect it to my liking and move on.

The best gummy bears are the clear ones.

My cat just killed a fly and ate it. Awesome.

I can't believe it's the end of the month already. Where did the time go? April 1st means it's getting closer to Spring, and it also means the day to pay rent and the internet bill and electric bill.

I have a number of things to do today. First off, I have to take money out for the above mentioned and also do some laundry, hand in these Trader Joe's applications, and go to work later.

CiCi is moving out April 1st with her boyfriend. They'll only be about 15 minute walk away or so. It'll be nice to have a familiar face on the north side.

I still need to make new friends.

Everyday is going by so fast. It's funny how, before I moved out, time was dragging. I was dreading each and every day, waiting for that one day to be out on my own. Now that it is here, it's gone by so quickly. Although the difference is that I look to every new day. I like waking up in the morning, and looking out my window and walking to the lake on nice days and walking to work. I like that I don't need to have cable to enjoy my down time. I read and take pictures and write my thoughts of the day. I have this whole system going, and it seems to be doing me favors.

John is going to be an uncle! :)

Day Six (365 Day Project)

A lot of people ask me where I get my inspiration from. For one thing, music is a big part of where I come up with ideas. I can listen to a song and portray their words into a photograph, which is why a lot of my photos have either song titles or song lyrics as the title.

Other times, I turn to Flickr. I like to look at my contacts' contacts and their contacts and favorite everything that turns me on. I like to surf through DeviantArt and Tumblr, etc. There's so many young, talented photographers out there!

And some times, I will just...see something I like or have a crazy, vivid dream or an out-of-this-world experience that I want to share with people. Going to the park or the beach or another city; being in another place puts me at ease. Music videos, movies, light, weather. Everything! The world is my oyster.
