tonight will be the night that we begin to ease the plugs out of the dam.

and we still stand knee deep in the flow,
the undertow will grab our heels and won't let go.
and while we hold, our legs quivering,
the water rises now to our teeth when we just let go.
and sail belly up to the clouds, the rocks scraping our backs
to breathe in the air will be the only thing that we have.
-Saves The Day

i dedicate this to the bravest woman i know.
renee, i love you more than words could describe.
you're my best friend.
my partner in crime.
my superwoman.

do you know what i love the most?

even the suburbs would be o.k.

saturday with monica brought back memories and made some new ones. cruising down the interstate, blasting our high school favorites like Saves The Day and Alkaline Trio, spending the sunny afternoon in t-shirts and sunglasses walking down telegraph avenue. one of the best days i've had in a long time.

i'm taking a step backwards, on purpose this time. only because i'm getting ahead of myself. i guess you could call it 'learning from my mistakes.'

my creativity has been put on hold, thank you midterms. next tuesday, it's on. here's what i've been working on:
the last one is a project for a friend, it'll be hard to let it go once it's finished.

if i stay in one place i lose my mind

i'm a pretty impossible lady to be with.

busy busy busy times! i can't believe how fast life moves. ferris buehler is right, if you don't stop once in a while you could miss it. the quarter system is keeping me on my toes. or attempting to at least. next quarter is going to be even more intense, check out this mouth full of classes i'm taking:
PHY7B: physics
BIS102: biomolecules
GEL107: paleobiology
MIC102: bacteriology

so many ologies! good thing i like science, right?

things are clouding my head that probably shouldn't be right now. i have a habit of letting that happen though. i'm already over-thinking. already day-dreaming. already wishing on digital clocks.

i've been inspired lately, i can't decide by what exactly, but something is making me create. i finished two paintings and have started on a 20x24 canvas. its definitely keeping me sane.
