oh, it's time to start living

“Make a radical change in your lifestyle & begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances & yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, & conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, & hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new & different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security & adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning & its incredible beauty.”
— Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild.

forget about the boy

i went to the beach this weekend.
and in the moonlight
don't you think about him
sister, you're much better off without him
you can blow the blues a kiss goodbye
and put the sun back in the sky
for when he comes crawlin', i'm not fallin'
shout hooray and halleluh!
now me and mr. wrong are through
i'll find myself another beau
who i know is no rover!
forget about the boy!
-thoroughly modern millie

i have a lookbook account. can you find me?

i want to be wonderful

gold dusted pigment brushed across my face. building a fort out of sheets. lots of blankets and pillows. pineapple and cookies. a lantern. telling ghost stories and singing songs with a guitar in the dark.

listening to lots of music, and singing a lot of music. performances and practices. reading the cat in the hat. catching up with things. i need to pack for a trip. what are some things i should bring?

take a chance on me

today i was on the way home and went past a lovely house. it was a light pink house with white detailing, and it reminded me of a delicious frosted cake. if i lived there i'd wear tiaras around the house and possibly wear honey and brown sugar on my lips because it tastes good.
listening to songs that bring me nostalgia. eating way too many sweets, yet again. i bought some things this week. a jacket, a necklace, shoes and a vest. i also saw plays.

i like wearing silly hats.

love the one that's right for love

I miss it. I think I could miss it just as much as I miss you. marks on my face from mic tape face, "getting in the bag", curling hair and gelling hair nonstop, and total energy. That feeling of being infinite at the very end and at the very beginning.

So, I was in Chicago.
we dazzled the audience. we razzle dazzled them.

i like to be straight up with cute people.
