This is goodbye?

It has been over 2 years since I've made you aware of my love for anatomy with my first post ever.  After these 2 years of crappy templates, I have become aesthetically sick of this blog.  I truly wish blogger would up its game and come correct when it comes to better layouts.  Unfortunately, my html skills are way subpar and I cannot rely on myself to make a good layout.  With that being said, I'm going to try and make my tumblr my primary blog. Perhaps I'll be back, the world may never know.

So NOT proud of this, but I find it halaaarious and unsurprisingly true. EXAMPLE:
Fact or fiction? Grace literally got picked up mid robotic dance move and carried across the bar by one of these douchebags? FACT.

Love.

Favorite "After Dark" by Murakami Quotes

"She breaks off her reading and looks outside. From this second-story window she can look down on the busy street.  Even at a time like this, the street is bright enough and filled with people coming and going--people with places to go and people with no places to go; people with a purpose and people with no purpose; people trying to hold time back and people trying to urge it forward." pg. 7

Hi! If you like to read you MUST make an account and add me on Goodreads to read my reviews on books I have read and see what I'm currently reading! and of course, vice versa! ^___^

Past/Future

4948749987.jpg
I really think this should say, "Please don't let what was get in the way of what IS"
I think the times people struggle most are when they think of the past or the future and don't focus on what is going on right this very moment.

"Color"

The diameters of molecules
Wildly expanding
Creeks rivers oceans
Roads buildings
Clouds emptiness
All stretching

Absent we become
To one another
Somehow this
Colorless place
Is growing familiar

Your headlights
Glittered speckles through the field
Into shadows we walked
That light purple swelled in my heart
As I led you by hand
Because I had walked
There before
You were new

Those mornings
When we woke
The diluted color
Of the rising sun
Soaked through
Those folded plastic blinds

My roof at autumn dusk
Gray like elephant skin
And your clothes blended in
But I noticed more than
Just what I saw

Those afternoons
We laid tangled on
A crochet blanket
Grass poked between the negative
Spaces created many
Vibrant strands of multi-hued
Woolen yarn

Now in my helpless
pale surroundings
I drop my eyelids
Desperately
Praying to God
Trying to see

In the shadows of
My closed eyes I fear
It all fading away
Every single one
Of those colors
That I once saw.

"Thrown Right At Me" --The Tallest Man on Earth

Jump 'long the creekside
The rock's crooked line
Fun curls your hair and
The days open wide

And horses trot faster 'til sparrows fall down
But you just fall, laughin', to the snow on the ground
You grew up by playin' the valley so wild
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

And, dancin' your bike to the lonesome, young mare
You call up her owner; say your heart will be there
You'll build a collection of scars on your knees
To learn how to count the impossible trees
You grew up by climbin' the birches so high
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

And we live so close that we probably seen
The same bird, the same time
They solumnly scream
One day, I'll find just that friend who can see
All this weird beauty
Thrown right at me


Growin' by playin' the valley so wild
And that's why
You're so beautiful now 

Thoughts on GTs...

GTs=Good Times as my friend Keith would call them.  And my thought is, if you want to remember them forever, you better write them down.  It is really easy for humans to forget things with this ever changing quick pace world we live in..ya know? Plus, I don't think people write enough these days anyway. They're too busy putting up stati on facebook, tweeting on twitter, or blogging (haha).  Don't underestimate the power of writing.

"No Other"

By Super Junior
Well, on the subject of k-pop...here's another one of my favs!! hahahah >< I mean, yea, sure, Super Junior's dance moves may be almost mediocre, some are too pretty for their own good, and exactly how many are there? 20? But, whatever, this stuff is like super crack--it makes me go super happy!!

LONG overdue Senior Collection Post

^My Senior Collections book.
Click "Click for More" (or that link haha) for the APD2011 (Apparel Design) Senior Video and an *EXCLUSIVE* 3 part movie of the show directed by my very own Father (: !!! Its adorable, you'll regret it if you don't watch it! PLUS you can see me acting a little CATTY/antsy before the show started and if you hate me or ever hated me....you get to see my CRY towards the end!! Yay! We all win!
PS. Please don't hold my emotions against me.  This was the most important night of my ENTIRE college career. And like all the other APD girls, I worked four years for these couple of hours. YES I will be anxious before the show. YES I will have a panic attack if a crotch zipper breaks. YES everything has to be perfect. and YES I will cry when it is over because my life has consisted of all nighters, NO sleep, NO social life, and a crappy diet for the passed 4 years that has probably taken approx. 18 years off my life and it is FINALLY OVER.


This makes me want to toss my cookies.

Thom Thom, a parisian street artist takes his blade and carves shapes into billboard ads revealing passed ads!  Such a simple idea, but who would have thunk it and who would have executed like this?! AMAZING.

I am INFATUATED and completely awestruck by this jacket. I love how she shows a part of her pattern just to show how much work and mathematics goes into creating this piece of art.  If you had no respect for what it takes to fabricated something like this, I hope this shows how intricate something that looks so "simple" actually is.

It is that time of summer again...

Thoughts on Balls

Unfortunately, I will not be expressing my stand on the male genitalia often associated with the word "balls," but rather the word "courage" often associated with the phrase "having balls".  To me, meeting a person who "has balls" is very rare thing to come across.  As I grow older and the years roll on, I begin to see how unhappy people are.  I've also noticed that most of their unhappiness comes from occupational decisions they have made.  Often, I feel that people choose occupations that will guarantee them a stable income in the future.  They do not realize that though these jobs offer a secure financial life, most of the time they are not self rewarding and I've heard time and time again that these people wish they chosen to do something that actually made them happy.  This is where "balls" come in.  I think it takes a lot of "balls" to do something you genuinely love despite society's overwhelming message of "make money, money, make money, money, money!!" In my heart of hearts, I truly believe that if you do what you love--the money will follow.  So have balls, and be happy.

On the "ball" subject...we should get used to calling them ovaries too.  Ovaries are also spherical and with out ovaries, there would be no balls.

On the "people who take the path of high earning jobs have no balls" subject..that's NOT my message.  I believe there are many people actually love going after jobs like that--my Mom, who is a nurse, for example.  I was just saying there are a lot of people who go for those jobs that ONLY do it for the money and have their passions elsewhere.

Thoughts on Insecurities...

Starting to feel insecure about your body?  Well, don't.  Everyone has one.  But physicalities aren't the most beautiful things about a human, or any living thing for that matter.  It is the spirit, the mind that holds all the stability, the love, the beauty, the light, the story.  The mind doesn't manifest itself in one's body, but in one's actions.  So the next time you ask yourself, "Do I look good today?" look to analyze your actions instead of your body for the answer.

Vegas wore me out?

hahaha.

VEGAS TOMORROW! ....?

So, I'm going to Las Vegas tomorrow with a couple of APD ladies for about a week.  I went last summer with my family (all of whom were at least 21 EXCEPT ME).  So tomorrow I get to do Vegas right, and not get denied at all the clubs hahaha.  So why am I not excited for this week long of maxn relaxn by poolsides, evening out my runner's tan, clubbing, partying 24/7? I HAVE NO IDEA. Its bothering me A LOT. Not even "Like a G6" is working. This is a problem. Though the following short tidbit of conversation with my friend Jenna seems to be sort of working...

Me: Jenna, I'm not really excited for Vegas tomorrow, idk what's wrong with me ):
Jenna: Well, think about it as the spring break you never had because you were too busy working on senior collections.

AND THAT IS WHEN I GOT MY FIRST SPARK OF EXCITEMENT. This is the truth. While more than half of my friends were partying it up in Florida for SB, all I did was work min of 15 hours a day on my senior collections.  It sucked that my last spring break of college I spent it in my make shift sewing lab in my living room at home.  Welp, I guess I gotta make the next week count (; I'm sure it'll all hit me when we flyin fly like a G6 in the plane!!!

"Top Of The World"

By The Cataracs ft. Dev
I am obsessed with this song. Its possibly up there with my personal fav "Like a G6," but probably not. Haha, nothing can possibly ever compare, but this comes close! I swear if this plays at the clubs in Vegas...Imma get a little bit cray.

Good Life ^___^

So life has been so crazy the passed month.  I had my senior fashion show, won first place, got all As and Bs in my classes, and graduated with over a 3.0, and two majors. Along with a lot of celebrating came a lot of good byes, but I like to call them see you laturz. I've only been home for a couple of days and my, how different everything all seems to me now.  A lot of my friends see moving back home after college as a depressing part of life, but I'm starting to be more positive and happy about it.  I don't plan on being here for too long...who knows what will happen.  All I really know for sure in this time of uncertainty is that I'm one lucky human being to have had an opportunity to go to college, graduate, and to have a great future ahead of me.  Cheers ^_____^!
