Day 23: Something I Crave
I always crave sunshine. It's so rare in San Francisco. (I've become really redundant huh? Whining about no sun and apologizing.. hrm) I want to just be laying on the beach (on a sunny day) , wearing my favorite pair of jeans (with the holes in the knees) with my ipod blaring some 311. When I was in college, I had a hard time getting my ass to class. I went to a community college that was right next to a beach that had good weather most of the time. If I wasn't in class, I was at the beach..doing what? Listening to 311. The best chillaxing beach song ever is Amber by 311. Take a listen on YouTube if you don't believe.If I can't be at the beach, at least let me be poolside..pleaseeeeeee
Day 24: Share A Story From Your Past That You're Ashamed Of
Dam. Which story to choose.. I have so many! Well.. I'm running out of blogging time at work but.. I logged into my xanga the other day and i'm quite ashamed of how angry I was all the dam time. I needed to caaaaaalm the feck down, take down a few notches. Glad i've done so.
Day 25: What You Would Find In My Bag:
The purse i'm carrying today is a cream soft leather hobo from Top Shop that I picked up in New York. I really need to buy some leather cleaner for it, it's filthy. I was running in the rain at SFO one night to try to get on my flight to LAX on time. The dye from my jeans stained that purse :[
cell phone (blackberry baby) - obviously it wasn't pictured because I used it to take the photo!
Marc Jacobs wallet
Betseyville by Betsey Johnson makeup bag (which has TONS of things in it)
Day 26: Place I Want To Visit Before I Die
To be honest, i'd like to see the entire world. I know that won't happen. I don't have the funds like Paris Hilton and there are just so many countries and only one of me!
Here is my list:
Spain (more specifically, Ibiza.. I might be going to Barcelona in November though)
Day 27: Why Am I Doing This 30 Day Challenge?
At the beginning of this year, my partner in crime Melissa and I were talking about blogging.
labor day weekend of 2009
my buddy Jeff from New Jersey was in town
he snapped this shot of me taking a shot of food at our buddy Diona's birthday party
always grubbing and all about the peace sign
hrm, which reminds me. i haven't eaten crawfish in over a year! *sad*
the little cynic in me.
longer hair , plain face.
a night out on the town
How have I changed since then..Well besides the obvious physical differences (longer hair, less makeup).. I believe I am far more patient than I was last year. Either I have learned patience or have just desensitized myself to bullshit. I think it's a little mix of the two. I forgot WHERE I came across this quote, but it has stuck with me. I found it somewhere in 2005 while browsing blogs. It has been something that I go re-read every single year on my birthday. Today, I go back to that quote because of this 30 day challenge.
"You know, looking back on the last couple of years, and where I stand now emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually, I've grown so much. When I say "change" it doesn't mean I'm a different person, but that I've matured - turned into someone more beautiful than who I used to be in the past. If age makes one more beautiful, then I'm not afraid of growing older. If pain gives one more insight, then I'm afraid not to take it. Life brings more uncertainties, momentary joys and pains. Isn't that what's beautiful - to experience everything? It certainly is a blessing. Sometimes, I forget that. I will be sure to remember that this time as I make this new journey."
Day 29- In this past month, what have you learned.
