things that make my life meaningful.
After a rough day at the adventure science center, M runs over (from the TV—this is huge) and gives me a big goodbye hug. “I wish we could go to the adventure science center again today.” (things that don’t make my life meaningful: having real parents watch as I let my kids fall into danger and burst into tears……)
I have been producing really bad work lately. like, reeal bad. And it breaks my heart, but the only way to deal with this is to keep shooting. So I am. I have one working camera in my possession and a beautiful friend to spend some time with. Inspiration, I will find you.
I thought it would be hard to wake up before 9am once I got home but it’s been a pretty easy transition. I came home a week ago today, and immediately jumped right in to work on Sunday, nannying on Monday, and internship on Tuesday. Last night, I babysat (nighttime) for the first time in 5 months. So strange. College seems so far away, already. I like being busy, but the only reason I...
really great weekend for life. really really terrible weekend for work. starting my homework at 11 pm, Sunday night. solid.
someone take these chocolate covered acai berries...
i am really stupid. i need to stop wasting time.
late night thoughts
too many acai berries in my belly. i really like tea now.
the dining hall diet.
No: froyo. pizza. fries. dessert. soda. Yes: Fruit. Veggies. Sizzling salad. Chocolate covered acai bluberries. Let’s do this.
I can count on my two hands the number of time I’ve worn you. I failed at art as a kid, and I fail at art now. I can’t even master the eyeliner. Or the lipstick. I feel like I should know more about you at eighteen years of life. But other than minimal societal pressures, I just don’t feel like figuring it out. I like my sleep. Sometimes I even skip showering to get more...
maybe drinking a massive cup of boba at 2am was a bad idea…..

wiz khalifa-induced thoughts
Things went really well for me for a week. Out of no where. I thought to myself, “What if everything was taken from me in a week? Would I still be happy?” I told myself I would. I prayed. I re-prioritized. God helped me. Then it all really did get taken away. Things used to work out effortlessly for me. The only thing I really have not gotten that I applied for and...
haven’t seen the hunger games or read the books but omg the soundtrack is amazing!!!!?!?!!! (and 2 artists are from usc whattt)
1. new hubz requirement: must be able to pull off a mustache. 2. went to san francisco for spring break. ate. didn’t buy any clothes. 3. really really love ben rector & needtobreathe. so glad I got to see them last night. 4. super behind on school. 5. does “no short dresses or skirts” mean no skirts period, or just no short skirts?? I’m gonna wear a skirt.
the air i need to breathe
why is needtobreathe so. good.
kirsten, I don't know how to follow you.
You’re sleeping right now and I don’t know if I should wake you up or not… but my laptop was running out of battery and I’ve still got a ways to go on my app soo I stole your charger. that’s why I am no longer sitting on the throne. <3.
facing your fears.
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” - Roald Dahl This week has been a huge struggle for me. But everything has turned out alright. Everything will be alright. I am seeing beauty more and more. Seeing Jesus more and more....

Whatever you do, do it with all your heart.
a kind of resolution
machine dried one of my favorite sweaters. ruined. this, plus the fact that 2/3 other precious items shrank, plus the fact that i broke my new lens 3 weeks after getting it leads me to come to the following resolutions: 1. buy no clothes this semester. unless the piece is timeless/a good investment and a good deal and a worthy addition to my large-enough wardrobe and i really, really love it....
less clothes. more fruit/veggies. more hair/skincare products (well, i already bought these. so no more.) more h20. more exercise, laughter, movement. less chocolate. still good with no makeup.
- tripped last night. transitioning from grass to concrete. TRIPPED. with my camera on my shoulder. broke my new lens. estimated cost of repair? $150. the lens was over $350. I’ve had it for about 3 weeks. - just dropped around $60 on product. i promise not to buy clothes this semester?
you’re really good. if i study you and your peers and memorize most of you all’s work…..can i watch “Once Upon A Time” tonight? I mean, the music on there’s pretty good too……….
someone give me a maxi skirt please.
i really want one but im too scared to buy one.
goodbye facebook day 1
success so far. not only have i declined facebook, i’ve declined food! maybe there’s a direct correlation??
i want to live in lululemon.
sitting alone in my sister’s living room devouring a sprinkles pumpkin cupcake. tastes so good but feels soooo bad…

a real update.
5:00 PM. Been sitting on my bed for the better part of the afternoon. It’s parents weekend and my momma’s not comin’. So I’m pretty much just holed up in my room watching TV and snacking. I guess I could be productive. Nah. My piano teacher is teaching me improv. The Drop Box goal was reached. I really like jazz. I am trying to join a choir next semester. I miss...
i always get these urges to write. to tell you guys about my life in a semi-eloquent way. but then i get to this page and start typing and nothing coherent comes out and I lose inspiration. I’m doing really well though. Really, really well. Hopefully God feels the same way.
Lord I’m tired So tired from walking And Lord I’m so alone And Lord the dark Is creeping in Creeping up To swallow me I think I’ll stop Rest here a while And didn’t You see me cry’n? And didn’t You hear me call Your name? Wasn’t it You I gave my heart to? I wish You’d remember Where you sat it down And this is all that I can say right now i know...
BON IVER...i love you. →
awkward moments with a professor.
joy of my life. except im scared he hates me hahahahahaah
it's not july anymore?
USC keeps emailing me with things to do and it is freaking me outttttt I don’t know how to do any of it. organizing my closet is always the first step to success.
i keep accepting the folded up payments of parents i babysit for and stuffing it somewhere and then proceed to forget where i put it. that’ll probably be the #2 reason I don’t reach my college money goal (#1 being anthro).
Best part of my day
H: [coming out of the pool soaking wet] Miss Alice……I just want to give you a hug. I am fully-clothed and about to leave, obviously trying to stay dry. I stare in shock for a minute, trying to decide if it’s worth it. I left wet. PS: Worst part of my my day: E: [pointing to my stomach] You’re having a baby!!! noooooooooo I knew this day would come.
bon iver, bon iver
wear color win. (thanks gina)
