Things I did Yesterday.

I made biscuits.
I pretended I was Effie Trinket.
I ate a lot of Nutella.
Bought tea at the grocery store.
Checked my plants.
Petted my three cats.
Was confused. A lot.
Ate some cucumber salad.
Wished I'd have given more thought into what I was going to write.
And I think that's all I have to say.
Yep. That's it.

Marvin Can't Meow

But I need to go shopping and unpack and stuff, so I won't write that much until tomorrow.
But I have a question.
What does it mean if your cat can't meow? Marvin used to, but now he just opens his mouth and nothing happens.
It's both sort of sad and funny at the same time.
He's not old (HE TURNED ONE ON THE 6TH), so I really don't know.
I wonder if someone could help me on this?
Also, how do you tell the difference between male and female cantaloupe flowers?
And tell time from where the sun is in the sky?
And make a perfect Turks head on your bassoon reeds?
And get good flan after trying twenty times?
And how to move Urban Outfitters closer to yourself since you got to go to one twice and you want to go again?
Seriously, I don't usually buy a lot. I JUST LIKE TO LOOK.
But I did buy a cat shirt there and a pair of printed leggings. And a bracelet.
Oh, just a side note I was watching that show Sam and Cat (because I was waiting for Project Runway to load on my computer), and I noticed that under Sam's red sweatshirt, she was wearing MY TAROT CARD MUSCLE SHIRT I BOUGHT FROM URBAN.
Well, the same one, not mine exactly.
Okay, bye.

I'M BACK, BABY (Well not for long)

Whoo, this post is actually going to appear at the time I finish writing it!
It's nice to be back again, even though I had a lot of fun while I was away. I ate gummy bears, preformed a bit, and played A LOT of cards (Black Jack, Mal, Crazy Eights (for points), BS, Rummy, and 31 Knock (which I call something different, but this one girl randomly screamed "KWANZI!" while playing, so that is what we ended up calling it.)
 I painted houses and buildings a lot, played a game in an abandoned school, had a mini photo shoot in a bamboo forest, and sent a dead fish (I named him Swimmy) down the river in the traditional Viking funeral way (except we couldn't light it on fire so we just hummed funeral tunes and Taps).
But I'm leaving again.
Yep, it's back on the road for me. Actually, I was reading On The Road for the majority of the ELEVEN HOUR DRIVE, just for one way.

But anyways, I'm pressed for time, so I might not write something for every day I'm gone. Or maybe I will...
Anyways, I'll have to think of something.
Just wanted  to let y'all know my status and stuff. And basically I like writing to myself.
Oooh, you have to see some of the additions to my Wreck this Journal. These additions magically appeared while I was flopped over like a dead fish and slept on pile of everybody's stuff for two hours after we stopped at a KFC.

But that is for another time.

Derp... (Week of Weirdness #7)

I ran out of ideas. This is the last post I guess for W.o.W. Hope it was fun for everybody.
Alright so for today I decided to share something I do when I need ideas. I start with one word and keep writing the next thing I think of until I have a chain of words. I call these my Word Chains.
So I'll do one right now.
Gumball, dirt, ice, music, red, popsicle, summer, pool, water, fridge, cat, mouse, ladybug, iPod, drinks, biscotti, croissant, Naked Juice, grass, lilies, tomato, space, ice cream, fried chicken, sprinkles, moon, kelp, otter, pine tree, leather, purse, gloves, hat, Slurpee, internet, late, terror!
Yeah that was fun!
I may get back late so there won't be a post for tomorrow, but then I leave again so I might do another Week of Weirdness of something.
Hasta luego.

HAIKUS! (Week of Weirdness #3)

You know how I said I was done writing poems? Well just for today, since this week is sort-of-kind-of-not-really special, I decided to do some. Actually, five.

Carrot Onesie dream,
Wish I owned its orange-ness,
Cuddle up at night.

(P.S This is Hannah Hart. She is awesome. She does MDK. Watch her on Youtube. Her channels are MyHarto and YourHarto. That is all.

Marvin runs quickly,
Slamming into my body,
Acts like nothing's wrong.
(P.P.S Marvin is my double jointed cat. Not some random guy I saw on the street with shiny toe nails or anything.)
Sushi, sushi, yum,
Crave the day we meet again,
Will it come quickly?
Found dead mouse in house,
Saw it earlier in room,
Peeked out from dresser.
Zombies crawl through earth,
Lost legs to time and decay,
Moving through my mind.
Not your average haikus, eh? But then again, I'm not average I guess.

JUST DOMO (Week of Weirdness #2)

I love Domo. So I made this post only about him. Wheeeeee!
Domo likes Easter bunnies... THEY HAVE CANDY!

I NEED TO FIND ONE OF THESE. Well, I already have my hart set on a Carrot Onesie (Haha get it? MDK and Hello Harto fans? Never mind.)
It's still pretty cool, along with...
A DOMO TOASTER! They sell them at one of my favorite places, Urban Outfitters.

Even Hello Kitty wishes she was Domo...
Yaaaay for everyone! Hope you like day two of WEEK OF WEIRDNESS!

Some Quotes (Week of Weirdness #1)

"You know what your problem is, it's that you haven't seen enough movies - all of life's riddles are answered in the movies."
 -Steve Martin 

"I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done."
-Lucille Ball
"I love hearing my audience breathe."
"Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.
-Ray Bradbury
"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."
-Coco Chanel
"I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we're all put on this planet for a purpose, and we all have a different purpose... When you connect with that love and that compassion, that's when everything unfolds."
-Ellen DeGeneres
"The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed."

Just a Note.

Okay so (hopefully) I have figured out how to have posts actually post at a set time everyday. This will be the last time I actually write something and it will immediately post. I shouldn't even be writing but you know what, I don't really care.

Oooh I just love this picture. It's so beautiful and it gives me shivers. The good kind.
Yep. Okay posts will be on the site at 5:00 PM, Pacific Daylight Time. Because I like Pacific Daylight Time. And 5 really isn't special at all.
You get the point.

Bye Bye Birdies.

Soon I'm going to be leaving, and this is the crazy month where posts aren't going to show up super often. I'm still figuring out what I'm going to do to continue to have something on the site, but I haven't really figured that out. Feel free to look through older posts (I enjoy the Mosquito one and the sail boat one especially, along with my gummy worm adventure). Things to do while I'm not posting...
1. Check out the free music on iTunes (new single every week!)
2. Watch Drop Dead Gorgeous on Youtube
3. Buy a Wreck this Journal (and destroy it of course)
4. Read World War Z (or see the movie!)
5. Use the computer drawing/painting program on your computer.
6. Eat Thai food.
7. Climb a mountain and yodel.
8. Create a huge slip and slide with a tarp.
9. Explore your town.
10. Go thrift shopping.
11. Doodle on your Converse.
12. Buy something that you wouldn't usually wear.
13. Call your friend that you haven't talked to in a while.
14. Go to a bookstore and read something there (I recently read The Glass Menagerie)
So I'll check up on all y'all later.

Wreck this Journal (#2)

Hello, (insert name here)!
It'd be July first, and that means than we are in the second month of summer!
Whoo hoo!

The next few weeks are going to be super duper crazy for me since I'm not really going to be able to post, but I'm going to figure something out. Hehehe.

Anyways, I wanted to talk about something in this world that makes me really happy.
Wreck this Journal.
I'm currently on my second one(AND IT'S EXTENDED), and I love using it and coming up with creative ways to destroy it.
Basically, the whole idea of the book is to read the instructions on each page, and follow them.  These instructions tell you how to destroy the journal, but they are just guidelines. It's up to you to use your imagination and creativity to follow each sort of challenge, and it's really fun to do.
The thing is, everyone wrecks it differently.

I've seen pictures of people who make it entirely into an art project, and it becomes something insanely gorgeous while being a pure representation of their own selves. Others destroy it until there is almost nothing left, and for some reason, this is still amazing and beautiful. After I got mine, a lot of my friends got their own, and it was cool to see what happened to them over time. My friend Ariana* was the first to show me it, and that's how I learned about it.
My one friend, Olive,* made hers super colorful, and it was fun to page through and see what she did to each page. My other friend Mitzi* COMPLETELY destroyed hers, and had to carry it around in a plastic bag because it was so sticky.
And I thought that was great.

On the first couple pages, the author (Keri Smith) conveys that this book is a representation of "creative destruction" and that "you may begin to live more recklessly".
That is absolutely true.
For me, I used the book to reach out to people. I still have my first book (I thought I lost it, but I found it recently). It is definitely not one of the prettiest, or the most destroyed. But about 75% of mine was done in collaboration with other people, and that's what I like the most about it. There are names of people inside it, their drawings, their writing, their own creativity. I would ask anyone (during some free time) if they wanted to help me with it, and a lot did. I actually got to know some people better because of it, and we became friends.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, go get one of these books. Seriously. It is so much fun if you are a teenager, a kid, a young adult, or a adult that is young on the inside. You might just see destruction differently.

Okay, change of subject.
I don't feel like doing quotes anymore, so I'm going to come up with something else to  end the posts with. Also, since I won't be posting for awhile, I might just put gifs up or something and see what happens.
Yeparoo. See you later.
*This name is not theirs. It's theirs in my protective imagination bubble of greatness.
(P.S I like Domo!)
