Changing

The world has changed quite a bit for me. Seeing as the changes have been swift and consistent, I cannot judge them as being beneficial or not. It may be the lack of sleep (and increase in cortisol), as well as the summer heat, that is forcing me to evaluate my life. It’s customary for one to think life over when there is nothing else to do. I have a job to get to, one that I should have been planning for this whole weekend, but never got around to. I’ll blame Netflix, video games, and the ever specific blogs that populate Tumblr. It’s disgusting actually, the level of specificity that exists on there.

But I digress. I write at this ghastly hour (for a work night) because I am stressed. I write because I’ve lost focus and at least here I can type of a path, a path with thoughts.

Ta-ta.


The season I fell in love with music…again.

Whether it’s because I’ve been stuck in the house for too long or spending too much time on the Internet, it’s both, my discovery of new music has increased. While much of the new music I have started to listen to has been around for quite some time I still feel all geeked out when I hear an awesome track. During my winter break I’ve rediscovered the power of Last.Fm. Spending just an hour on the website will introduce you to a numerous amount of artists; too much sometimes actually. But once you get through all the “Recommendations” that the site offers you’ll surely find something that stands from the rest. I haven’t had an experience like that yet so I’m still waiting.

Back up and quiet down. Thanks. (Updated)

*Here’s the link to the post w/ video regarding this post: http://wp.me/phpQ6-7G

I wish I had a video to publish with this post, but the issue at hand must be discussed. I want to bring attention to something that I feel effects quite a few Washingtonians. Have any of you ever arrived to a Metro station in the early morning and had to deal with 2 to 3 newspaper distributors? I mean one is enough, but when you have multiple men (as I have yet to see a female distributor) giving out newspapers it just seems like overkill! Now, I understand that newspapers like The Washington Post and the Enquirer need to get their papers distributed, but when they are blocking commuters entrance to a station there’s a problem.

Public School Chronicles. Parte Uno

You know, I don’t know what I love most about public school. Maybe it’s the multiculturalism or the large number of students. Who knows? But since my school offers none of this, when crap like this happens (see picture above), I’m reminded that I am still at a public school. Just not a massive one.


Take me there.

I haven’t written a new post in who knows how long. Much has happened between now and my last post. Has it been an interesting span of time? I would say no, but there have been a few really cool things that have happened. Actually, just yesterday I participated in a three school discussion on two Supreme Court cases. Sounds simple, huh? Not quite. This discussion wasn’t one between the three schools involved but with three Supreme Court Justices. Yes, you read that correctly…THREE….JUSTICES! Read the rest of this entry »


I want that belt. Thanks.

For as long as I have known about Etro I have adored their use of fun prints and expressive colors. Every season I’m mesmerized by the spectrum of swatches they have to use in order to create their pieces. Sometimes they may go overkill with all the damn paisley, but when they don’t, their shirts and pants are flawless. For this particular post I chose to focus in on the belt the model above is wearing. It may not look like much but I really, really like it. And I’m not that crazy about accessories. I don’t usually focus my attention on the “extras”, but I do understand their importance. Read the rest of this entry »


OH DEAR!

Goshers! I’m so happy! Project Runway is back and I’m crazy happy. I may have to force myself to watch every single episode, but I don’t I’ll have to much to stress about. Well, other than the fact that I’ll be starting school in a week. That may get in the way of my PR watching habits. Especially because I’ll be at American Uni. and my regular high school. Oh yeah…two schools.

The fear grows more and more every day I get closer to the first day of class. But I can’t wait! I’m so going to hang with all the college kids. Can you say poser much?
