believe you me

i'm thinking long and hard about something to blog about. it's been far too long, in my opinion. consider this your warning. a stellar post is in the works. don't bet your bottom dollar on it though..just sayin'.



i'm loooving the look of lace lately, especially with strong shoulder details and cutouts.
(i think i'm in one of those wedding know what i mean. uh oh.)

and this is how i'm spending my friday night. 


no sleep tonight

random thoughts, ready set go.

my goal this summer is to become more well-read. (bad grammar? maaaybe). specifically to read great expectations and actually understand it and enjoy it. this song and this song have been replaying in my head for the past two days. i love james blake and bon iver's new cd. death cab released an album the other day and city and colour's new one comes out in four days. what a great time for music. i really want a puppy, specifically this one. i would name it a really cool name and love it and play with it and take it on runs. edmonton is the most beautiful city right now. so green and sunny and hot and full of life. everyone here is so active, always riding bikes or running or playing in a park. i really love this city and my life here, especially now that my practicum is almost over. i start work on monday! i guess i'm a real grown up now.

that's all i've got for now folks.


i need to be inspired, any good books i should read?

"You cannot pretend to read a good book.
Your eyes will give you away. So will your breathing.
A person entranced by a book simply forgets to
breathe. The house can catch alight and a reader
deep in a book will not look up until the wallpaper is in flames."
