About Me

I am an individual stuck in a rut who loves to re-name her 21 cats in the cabin she lives in at the edge of that god-awful forest on the other side of China that no one can reach.

A lot of things have been bothering me, and most of it is semi-fashion related (YAY!). But, I hope I don't sound like I'm PMS-ing because gosh, wouldn't that be embarassing?

a) NO ARCTIC MONKEYS ALBUM IN BOOKSTORE! I like to buy the CDs in the bookstore, so I have it on hand. If I know I'll never find it, I'll buy it online. But, I was very upset on August 25th to find no "Humbug." Boo-hoo.

b) One of the things I hate about bloggers, fashion bloggers specifically, now-a-days is the desperation to be famous. And I've seen this a lot. They'll start dressing to what they think is "avant-garde" (note the quotation marks). I know a lot of bloggers have recieved from fame (case in point, Tavi and Jane), but nobody can be like them. If we all were famous, that'd be, well, dumb. I hope I don't sound as though I want an equal class society or something! It's just that you should be yourself and not cater to others in order to become famous.

c) Last year, this girl, who says like more than necessary, in my school found Paramore to be her ultimate love and decided to add bird's nests to the sides of her hair to look "scene." Figure A describes it.

Figure A: Where the Blackbird lived before she took her broken wings and learned to fly

Now, it seems as though she found Cory Kennedy and tries to be like her.

Figure B: The shirt is a men's medium, obviously, can't you seriously tell?

I don't mean to poke fun. But really, don't follow what other people do. Cory Kennedy is not a fashion pariah. Hayley Williams most certainly doesn't one either. Follow the beat of your own drum. Be a Ringo Starr. Or Phil Collins. Or something...

I really hope I don't sound like a bitch. I'm not. I have a lot on my mind, and why not write it on here?

I also hope you enjoy my obviously protegic paint skills.

And thanks for all the comments! Sorry it took a while to get another post in!

awesome picture.
do you have humbug now?
yeah, i know what you mean. it does seem like they're trying to become famous specifically for their blog; something i'd never want.
bahaha, i love your hayley williams birds nest drawing.

gloves are lovely!

haha, i know how you feel. i definitely don't love the new album as much as their old one. and it does sound very studio produced, i think because they had access to better equipment. at least that's what it sounds like to me haha.

whoa, crazy! don't worry, i'm v. v. amused by word verifications. for instance, this one is gamslae, which is awesome.

oh i definitely enjoyed your paint skills. the figure drawings are freaking awesome. i love them.

and hells yes to complaint B. To be honest i feel like blogging has lost it's fun for this very reason. people don't blog anymore to express themselves or to have a discussion with people who share their interests. It's just about how many comments can you get and showing everyone that you follow the trends too. blogging is more of a selfish act these days. to be honest i'm not too sure how i feel about the blogging world anymore. that's why my updates are so random lately. because does anyone really care anymore? is blogging even pure anymore?

anyway sorry about the ridiculously long comment but you were able to complain about this issue in a concise way and i've been struggling to express my feelings about it for months.

anyway i hope you get well soon ginny (you're sick right?)
