Peter Pan Syndrome

I am constantly asked questions about what I want to do post-graduation, which by the way is two years away, I don't know what I am doing in two months, let alone two years. But how am I supposed to answer a question about what I want to be when I grow up if I never want to grow up?

P.S. How creepy is this mask?

Hello Again

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't formally said hello to you since I have gotten back from Tahoe. The trip was amazing, and there are more posts about it to come, so stay tuned. Normally I update you on what book I am reading on the side bar, but I have been through multiple books in the past week while I was on my trip, so here is a little recap incase you were wondering. 

First off I finally finish Lolita. Yay! It was a very good read.

Next off I read the "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" by Mark Haddon. This is apparently a book everyone has read but me. Okay that is a tad exaggeration, but apparently it is quite a popular book. And now I know why. I highly suggest it.

Then I read "Naked" by David Sedaris. I have been meaning to read his books for a while now, so I finally went to the strand and bought one of his books. Sadly my used copy did not come with the book jacket. This is both sad because the jacket and hardcover together are a very cool design, and also I didn't know what the book was about. Because of this it took a little bit of getting used to, but was incredibly entertaining.

Next up was "Lullaby" by Chuck Palahniuk. Another author I had been meaning to check out for quite some time. Really an interesting concept about the power of words in sound, in a world where silence seems to be hard to come by. Living (the majority of my time) in NYC I definitely crave silence, so this theme resonated with me. I am sure if you have heard of him you have heard that his books a little odd, which I now know is true, but they are also really good reads.
Sidenote: Palahniuk resides in Portland, OR, so he is also my west coast neighbor! Ballin!

Not sure what is next on my bill of books to read. I am thinking maybe "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath, but I plan to head to this amazing used bookstore in town to find some reads for my trip to LA next week. Do you have any recommendations?

My hair

So a little over a month ago I cut my hair shorter than it has ever been since preschool. See when I was little I had basically no hair until kindergarten, then I was so excited about having long hair that I didn't cut it again until 5th grade. Since then it has stayed about shoulder length or longer. Then about 6 weeks ago I got a hair cut, and when I got home was incredibly bored with my cut. It was the same thing I always got. So about a week later I went to the Bumble and Bumble School and got myself a ballin' new bob. I am absolutely in love with it, I cannot believe I haven't had my hair this short before. But then I just realized my logo is my long hair, and that is pretty identifiable with me, so I guess my logo is now a piece of reminiscence. 

Sorry for the rambling, but just something that was on my mind.

I fly like paper, get high like planes

I am going to pull a Chandler Bing for a moment. Could I be any more excited to see Pineapple Express? It looks absolutely fantastic. It comes out August 8th, and thankfully I will be in L.A. at the time so I will get to see it with Brother Richanbach.

Check out the preview, laugh your ass off, and get stoked.

Coney Island

When I go to Coney Island there are two things that must happen. One, I must ride the Wonder Wheel, and two I must ride the Cyclone. When you look at the cyclone you think it can't be that thrilling, but my oh my it is. I stand by my statement that is the best roller coaster I have ever been on. The rest of astroland is a little shady, but it is fun to stroll on the boardwalk, and last week I played on the beach there for the first time, and it was actually quite fun. So if you are ever visiting New York and you think, "Hey I want to take an hour train ride" you should take that ride out to Coney Island and buy yourself a ticket for the Cyclone.

Mamma Mia!

The top three reasons I cannot wait for Mamma Mia to come out (besides the fact the show was amazing).

1. Colin Firth
2. Pierce Brosnan (I can't even remember the last time he was in a film)

3) Meryl Streep singing ABBA

Okay so I have gone from being 13 for the reasons that I wanted to see The Wackness to being middle aged for the reasons I want to see Mamma Mia, but that is just how I role. It comes out July 18th, I cannot wait, and I love the preview every time I see it. You can see it below.

A World of Birds

Not sure how I found this, but I did and it amuses me thoroughly. It is a comic strip that has a cast of birds. They make me giggle. I especially enjoy the use of the word foiled.

Check it out here.

I think I will always love the Olsen twins. I am not even sure how much I like them anymore, but when I see a magazine with one of them on the cover, I am bound to buy it. Thankfully I already subscribe to Elle, so this month's issue with MK on the cover came right to my mailbox. It is actually a pretty good interview and spread.

I am also looking forward to the Wackness, not only does it have MK, it has her making out with Ben Kingsley, and Josh Peck from "Drake and Josh". That is right I am 13 years old.
