Words of wisdom: "I shouldn't have to prove to you that I'm good enough for you"

"But you know, I shouldn't have to prove to you that I got my shit together.
You should be able to love me regardless. That's what love and commitment is.
You don't leave someone behind when they're struggling.
You work on things together.
You tell them everything.
When you're feeling like shit, when you're up, when you're down.
That's life and life shouldn't have to be about me proving to you that I am good enough for you.
You should be able to know that already.
Life isn't a pair of rosy sunglasses.
Life is hard. Life is tough. Life is not always fun.
But you keep going and you help each other out.
You don't walk all over them and spit on them or shun them or judge them.
You work things out.
You don't let things go unclear and dodgy.
You speak the truth."

Photo Love: Strawberry Fields Forever

Strawberry Fields Forever - Photo Credit: Pictures of Strawberry

I read somewhere that strawberries symbolize righteousness.

"Perfectly wonderful, fine and genuine".

But pinned to blank canvas, its meaning takes a dark turn...

What is right, what is wrong, what are our morals? Who are we? Who do we want to be? Where are we going? What is real? What isn't real? 

The most memoral scene in the movie Across The Universe is of Jude pinning strawberries to a canvas...
Strawberries are bleeding like bleeding hearts, bleeding out the virtuous and the good out of the perfect fruit.

Thoughts are my own. Please do not take it too personally. Just expressing how I feel.

The mood I'm in: shiftless hobo

Credit from Fashion Inspirations.

I have similar boots, I knit hats that look like that....lately I've been in a "let's get comfy" mood. Nothing over-on-top, nothing with high heels and nothing overly dressy.

Yeah, I just want to look like a shiftless hobo is what I'm trying to say.

I kid, I kid.

The book of LOFTS, new photo blog and other ramblings

Guys, I went and bought this ginourmous (giant/enourmous) book on LOFTS with photos from Jordi Miralles and it's fantastic. And you know what else? Only 40 bucks!!

So, I've been writing lots lately from cheesy poety, to a screenplay set in the woods to cover letters and resumes to real-life short stories.

There's one short story I wrote that I'm waiting on being published but hey it might not and if it doesn't I'll post it on here.

I'm tired of thinking too hard on the structure of this blog. All it's been doing is holding me back from writing what's really on my mind.

People nowadays don't want facts, they want personal opinions and ideas and inspirations.

I always thought talking about what I'm really going through in life and what kind of person I am would bore people. And you know what, maybe it will.
But it's good therapy nevertheless!

Also, check out my new photo blog! It's called Photo in a Tub and I've been adding a photo a day. It's been great to dig back into old photos and memories.

Today is going to be busy day. I'm frightened with what is about to come next in my life but I need to go forward with it.

Wish me luck.

Obsession: terrariums

Photo credit: Ciera Design

I fell in love with these little globes of green at December's Market Collective.
I am the proud owner of a little terarrium myself, and although it went through a "breaking to pieces" mishap, the plant itself is still kicking in its new U-shaped vase. 
What's great about terrariums are their DIY qualities.  I bought mine fully put-together but its shattered state left  me with nothing but the living. 
I was so saddened by my little green buddy with no home that I emailed the creator pleading for a solution. Well, the solution wasn't hard to find: I needed an open glass container, a couple rocks for added decor, and some gravel or pebbles.
Terrariums are highly decorative, and do not require more than a couple drops of water a week. 
Done and done!

Melissa & Claire = priceless

I usually don't post on things I do but this has to be made into an exception!
My friend Melissa, who lived in Seoul and who shares this appreciation for Korean food and culture, took me to this little hole in the wall on 9th Street and 7th Ave. It pretty much shares a wall with Crack Mac's and above, a packade.

It is called Don Day and it's pretty freaking amazing, my friends!

We shared a couple things to bite on (Melissa proceeded to show me how to cut with chop sticks PROPERLY because I was just going nowhere with my shitty chopstick cutting skills), drank too much and watched K-pop, which I found to appreciate quite fondly after a couple shots of that delicious 14% plum liquor and a couple glasses of SoJu (19%).

After the second shot, I was quite reluctant do to a third right away. Props to Melissa for doing shots like a pro!

We shall meet again Soju!

The hole-in-the-wall we went to!

Four ways couples sleep

I'd say this is pretty dead on.

Adventure Time with Finn & Jake

Woke up from a two-hour long nap in Fernie.
Walked downstairs. half awake, sat down.
Others were already watching and I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
I tuned in and got hooked.
How is this possibly a kid's show? I was instantly boggled by the weirdness that unravelled in front of me.
It was just...perfect, pure genius, completely out of this world.
WTF just happened?! I witnessed thousands of miniature spiders explode out of a spider's ass.  Woah, that shit's crazy and completely had my full and most devoted attention.

Thumbs up to The Adventure, originally entitled Adventure Time with Finn & Jake.
The show made me feel like a kid again? Sort of?
