+ stop. +

So, I usually don't post too many photos of other photographers' work, but I stumbled across this and sat and stared at it for probably a solid four minutes. If it makes me think that hard, I should probably share it with you.

Thank you, neha, for sharing.

+ here to stay. +

more of this photo here.

the danger of a broken heart is not the pain.
not the tears, or anger.
not the ache, not the loneliness,
not the quiet, the empty seat, the bed now much too big.

the danger of a broken heart is what we have to repair it with.
mistrust, hopelessness, faux comfort.
the oaths we take. what we swear to ourselves.
the danger is self-reliance.

the danger is that these stitches in our heart don't fall out.
that they are there to stay.
because they must.

the danger is that we know it isn't about love anymore.
it isn't about how perfect we are in our world.
it's about how perfect we are in theirs.

the danger is that two became one.
and a half of one...

half is not whole.

but now we must make it so.

+ questions+

What do you like to do?
Write. Sit in corners. Sit on the floor. Paint things, anything. Read. Take pictures. Edit them. Go thrifting. Decorate my home. Graphic/web design. Blog. Stalk people on Flickr. Go to the park. Buy things for people. Be outside, doing anything or nothing. Talk. Listen to people. Think. Make things. Swim. Travel. Explore. Make people laugh. Drive on freeways on summer nights. Listen to music really really loud. Lay out in the sun.

What're your favourite magazines?
Hi Fructose. Juxtapoz. ID. The Drama. Vogue. Nylon, occasionally.

What make up do you wear?
Mascara. Sometimes a bit of this + this. Sometimes a bit of this.

Where do you like to shop?
Thrift stores. Vintage shops. Anthropologie. Boutiques. Etsy.

What do you dream about?
Usually having to get a group of people out of a maze before someone gets us. Or just getting somewhere before someone gets us. Someone is always trying to get me.

How old are you?
21. 22 very soon. Too soon.

What's your favourite time of day?
Right when the sun comes up. And then at the hottest point of the day. :)

What are your favourite songs?
That's like asking me what my favorite color is. Good try! I listen to almost everything. Entirely depends on the day.

What are you addicted to?
Decorating. All my spare money and time goes to decorating. And money I don't have. And time I don't have. I'm also addicted to people. I think it's a problem. Also, flowers. I want flowers all the time. I never have enough.

+ ugh. +

+ home. +

Don't you love when you go on vacation, but your life just keeps going without you, so you just come back two weeks behind? Mmmhmm.

I moved into a new home the night before I left for Seattle (and by moved I mean packed up my house in a day and threw all the boxes into the new house), so upon getting home last night I upgraded from living out of a suitcase to living out of a basement full of boxes.

So thank you, blogspot, for being my catch-up-on-life to-do list, even though I should probably be using listography for this.

things to do before i even bother unpacking:

+ ship all etsy orders
+ clean bedroom
+ hang curtains
+ pay electric, gas, water, cable, internet and car payment
+ pay tuition for osu
+ re-schedule classes
+ buy new bedding (YAY)
+ paint dresser and desk
+ properly store all artwork
+ change of address
+ check mail at old residence
+ clean coat rack

things to do before the end of the weekend

+ print new 'i am lady' prints
+ list new art on etsy
+ design for plushpalate
+ paint all black frames white
+ buy bed frame
+ grocery shop
+ ship macbook
+ ship ipod
+ confirm all september photoshoots

UPDATE: uh. it's now all on listography. see it here.
