Oh ohho, Lovecats =^..^=

- Today is Gustav Klimt's birthday. I love google's doodle for it. 
- I absolutely loooovvvvee Klimt's painting "The Kiss" (which is featured in the google doodle), it's one of my absolute favorites. <33333333

- I also just saw Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" today and to say that I'm still starry-eyed doesn't even begin to cover it. It's definitely one of my favorite movies he's made. <333333333
- Feeling so inspired by romance, Klimnt, Sam and Susy's sureness of love... I get crazy when I watch too much lovey tv and movies.

Don't know much..

I call this: "My Life At Home with My Parents' TV: Couch Potato Queen"

I know I told myself I was going to read more about math and science ... but honest. like, HONESTLY, how could I say no to this book?!?
It is two of my loves rolled into 1 !!! A song reference and mythology, ohh sumbunny is a happy girl.
So far so good, reading wise. I don't find myself wanting to tear my hair out from boredom. So we'll see, shortened attention span!
-These days I'm really tempted to keep a summer reading list - like I used to in elementary school - to track my progress.

saaaaanggg it Sam Cooke!

Also, been working on my etsy store. The hardest part is fighting the temptation to keep my goods to myself!. Go-on and check it out! :DDD I take custom orders too, so if you have any ideas feel free to message me!! :-)

SO, it's been a while..

- It's finally nice getting paid instead of sitting around on my butt a lllll dayyy loooong but working sure wears me out. I never really want to do anything BUT sit on my patootie when I get home. Wah. Bye friends. 
- Brain Fart: whenever I hear the phrase "it's been a while" I think of this B. Spears song.


-I finally finished reading "American Nerd," honestly the most interesting book (and only book I've actually finished) I've laid hands on in a while. I'm not going to get crazy about it, but Nugent is extremely thorough, totally real, and not to mention funny. His research and cross-sub-cultural connections and references had my secret hipster self raising my palms up to the sky saying "YESSSUHH!"
- Coincidentally, my work project has to do with computer science and my sudden ravenous consumption of all media dealing with nerds, and reading bits about science and math (pretty out of character, for me, if you don't know) had my parents seriously concerned. Particularly, my dad.
- But, I've decided to try and read more about math and science as part of my personal initiative for self-betterment. 
- I made this new dress over the weekend. The sleeves look pretty jacked up and I don't think it's supposed to be as loose as it is on me.. but I couldn't resist. I wore it to work. 
- Lastly, I've also been having regular bouts of overwhelming elation at living at home. I tend to stand out in the sunshine and swoon, all starry-eyed up at the sky and then promptly shoot a tweet out into the interwebs about how grateful I am to be from such a glorious place. Not only that, but literally everything around me seems to reinforce this idea that I am right in thinking that the west coast is THE BEST COAST. I mean, take the band Best Coast - well maybe this is the only thing that is actively validating my beliefs - but just listen. It's so right. Everyone else is wrong.
