i got back to t-town [tallahassee] last night from the big easy.
the trip included the following: cheese po'boy at dooky chase's [yes. DOOKY chase's. and yes, i laughed for way too long when i heard the name of the restaurant], iced cafe au laits and beignets from cafe du monde, shopping at urban outfitters, buying pralines for mum, dinner at juan's flying burrito, lavender-honey ice cream at creole creamery [SO good], getting rained on at jazz fest [we left before bolly joel came on but who cares], too much pasta, and a false brad pitt-sighting.
for the past two days i've been going through my old copies of nylon and jane [rip]. i cut out anything and everything that's slightly appealing so i can plaster [tape] it to my wall. it's looking awe to the some.
and i can't get summer internships out of my head. i sent off my resume and a cover letter to nylon a few weeks ago via email and snail mail...but no dice. there are a few options for me down in miami...graphic design firm, advertising stuff for a travel firm, etc. but i have my heart set on a magazine. a fashion magazine. an art magazine. a music magazine. where i can put my hands to good use considering that fashion, art, music [and a dash of politics] are what i live and breathe.
i'm currently looking into tmagazine information to try to find an email address to send my resume to... but i'm lost otherwise.
6 unimportant obsessions/6 unspectacular quirks of mine: 1. i visit nylon's website, uo's blog, harper's bazaar's horoscopes, ebay, nytimes.com, npr.org, and the blogs of white lightning and liebemarlene vintage EVERY DAY. 2. i get the urge to key every hummer i see parked on the street. 3. i hate how 90% of the world population eats [smacking, etc.]. 4. i buy stonyfield lowfat organic strawberry yogurt almost every time i go to the grocery store. 5. i make oodles of lists every week having to do with anything and everything...and they're written on anything i can get my hands on. 6. i listen to npr every morning on the way to class.
8 Things I Want to Do before I Die: 1. traveltraveltravel. 2. readreadread. 3. lovelovelove. 4. get an amazing job. 5. write short stories. 6. see a worthy president in office. 7. learn how to dance...better. 8. have my voice magically sound AMAZING and get a record deal.
8 Songs I Could Listen to over and over: 1. holland 1945 - neutral milk hotel. 2. after hours - we are scientists. 3. intervention - arcade fire. 4. stronger - kanye west.[SHUT UP] 5. mr. pitiful - matt costa. 6. st. peter's day festival - ra ra riot. 7. at the bottom of everything - bright eyes. 8. unforgetable - nat king cole.
8 Things That Attract Me to My Best Friends: 1. we judge others, but 2. we don't judge eachother. 3. they can turn my day around. in the right way. 4. they laugh at my jokes even if they're AWFUL. 5. they don't care if all i talk about is nylon, urban outfitters, music groups they know nothing about, or america's next top model episodes. 6. we understand eachother without making any sense. 7. they don't mind being the ones to drive everywhere. 8. hotness all around.
all that's left is a final on monday and two finals on tuesday.
my schedule was as follows:
MWF art after 1940 [my favorite class this semester]
TTh photo history, then disney&america [an history class that i thought was going to be awesome and talk about how disney was actually a prick, but nooooo], then college algebra [aka the class from hell. my professor was good, but GOOD LORD. you could probably hear my eyes rolling at some of the people in that class, and then steel to end the day with some good music.
so it was an interesting/stressful/fun semester, but i'm so glad it's basically over.
NO MORE MATH CLASSES EVER.
p.s. you're welcome for a thoroughly interesting post.
