Hallo, und Guten Abend!

The weekend slipped on by and no one really seemed to notice. I had a creative spell and did a series of two paintings. I'm actually quite pleased with them considering I painted them in a less than twenty-four hour time period. Let me know what you think. I thrive on constructive criticism. 

Another poem is on the way. 

Auf Wiedersehen.

 Gosh, it's finally the weekend. This week went pretty slow. I'm not sure why I'm surprised by that. I spent most of today with school but had some time to draw instead of going to art class (I didn't feel well but I assure you, I am fine now) so I did a woman's profile. I just need some new paints to finish it. 

I am proud to say that I actually have plans tonight. Allison and I are making brownies and watching Juno. Let me just say that you're right, we are losers.(By the way, you can get a hamburger phone on fredflare.com) I'm sure we won't watch the whole thing and we'll end up doing something more lame. Like dancing. And I'm also sure that we won't even bake the brownies because there won't be enough of the deliciously, disgusting looking batter left. Hmm have a nice Friday.

 I'm watching Chowder. It's a cartoon. I hate cartoons. Except Chowder. The graphics are quite entertaining.


I am stuck. My days are boring and vague.
So here is one of many lists to come because of my love for listography.

List of people I would like to meet and why:

1. Yoni Wolf (a.k.a. Jonathan Wolf, frontman of the Berkeley, California band Why?) because I would love to get inside his head and see where those lyrics come from.

I am currently listening to the song, Light Leaves.

2. Michael Perry. His art is amazing.
I would recommend buying his books Hand Job and Over&Over. However, I will say that I was disappointed with his iron-on t-shirt designs. The designs are amazing but the iron-ons don't go on so well.

3. Danny Davis. What can I say.. he's quite attractive(at least in my opinion. I sorta have a thing for long hair and beards) and he's a great snowboarder.

4. My grandfather who died when my mom was eleven. I'm sure I don't need to give a reason for this.

5. Kat Von D. I love her work. It's beautiful and classy.

6. Oliver Sykes. (frontman of the band Bring Me The Horizon) Yes, I'll admit that I occasionally listen to their music, but no, I am not a crazed and obsessed fan. The main reason I would like to meet him is more of an experiment to see how many of those Oli-obsessed fans would comment the picture of me standing next to him on facebook without tears in my eyes or any excitement in my face. Come on kids, that guy is a dick.

7. Nessa K. I love watching her vlog and would love to tell her how inspiring she is. At least I think so. And yes, I do watch YouTube. Is that so bad?

8. Johnny Depp. I love his movies. Let me rephrase that, I LOVE LOVE LOVE HIS MOVIES. Who doesn't? And I admire how he keeps his life pretty private.

That's about all could think of. I could add quite a few more musicians but the list would get repetitive.

List of places I wish I was instead of here:

1. Barnes & Noble. God I love that place. I haven't picked up an Alternative Press or Transworld Skateboarding magazine in forever.

2. Downtown in an art gallery or small boutique just to see if I can find some new treasures for cheap.

3. Chad's new house, helping him paint his walls. I believe he's painting them green. His first choice was red but I stated my negative opinion about the color and changed his mind. Red doesn't help to calm high-strung, stressed out people.. and he is one of them.

4. H&M. I haven't gone shopping in a while. I need some new jeans.

I promise that as soon as I go somewhere interesting and take some good pictures I'll post about it.

Today has gone quite slowly. It was spent staring at my computer screen and sipping cold coffee from a 70's rainbow mug while I attempted to make a complicated "friendship" bracelet. It's turning out all right aside from the fact that I totally screwed it up, first try. I cannot stand the cold weather anymore. I miss being able to walk in the fresh air outside without a coat on and run around in the summer rain... winter is going so so slow. I don't really have any big plans in the next couple of months. I've been meaning to go to a flea market to try and increase my skeleton key collection but they exist more towards spring when there's nicer weather.

I suppose one entertaining thing right now is the Olympics.. if you're into sports. For me all I really care about is the men's snowboarding cross and half-pipe run. Women's is alright. I've been a big fan of Shaun White for a long time until recently. It's not that I don't like him it's just that I tend to go against what's popular. For example, Twilight, ick.

This weekend should be alright. Chad and I might go see Shutter Island. I need to revive the horror film fanatic in me and I'm particularly excited for this one. I've always loved Leo and lighthouses really do scare me. The last horror I saw was Paranormal activity. It was horrible and not one bit scary so do not see it.

Ocean turns to concrete in a sea of broken buildings. Shadows fall on the day in little tides. The sun fades from black to gray to white and back again to shining. Wall of questions builds in my mind like the wall of bricks that towers overhead. Sea of people so fast, never running out. Run away. Bleeding salt water. Burning. Stinging. Fading. Drying out. Rising higher and higher and then come crashing down. City lights dance like rain in the distance. The sounds so unbearably loud that they blur to a silence like a cold, damp forest or whispers from beyond. Not at all peaceful but rather eerie sounds. Snap out of my daze and face the cold, harsh reality before my gaze.

"Junge, Sie hören nie auf, mich in Erstaunen zu setzen, und ich liebe Sie."
Yesterday was Valentine's Day and this is the first year that I don't hate the day. I am currently broke so I made my boyfriend a cherry pie. Now understand that I have never made an actual pie with a delicious, flaky crust before (Graham Cracker crusts were all I was familiar with) so I was worried about how it would turn out. I am proud to say that my pie was good and I did not actually burn it. They do say that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach... and in my case this is particularly true. Lately I have been slowly trying to put together a portfolio for school. The problem is that I haven't been to my art class for almost a week due to the wonderful "blizzard" that has covered all the roads in almost two feet of snow. I am usually a fan of winter but right now warm weather sounds pretty fucking nice.
