remember how i said i was going to buy myself something for V day?
well i decided it is going to be a new magazine every week.
today i bought frankie. ive never seen it before but it was the choice of the week. the article that stole my heart was one written by Nerissa Parker entitled 365 days a year. she took a polaroid picture every day for a year. "My only rule was I had to take the photo and I had to write something on the back of the photo, whether it was a lyric I heard from a song that day, or whatever...Initially, my criteria was to take a photo of whatever inspired me in my day, but some days I didn't feel inspired, so I had to be innovative." the photo collage that accompanies the article is pretty inspiring, she has a good eye for making ordinary things look...different.
i wish i could find the spread that they used in the magazine, maybe i will scan it. whon dai.
i'm loving 'lullabies for little criminals'. more then half way done, i wish it was longer already.
actually, i am at fault because bigger books intimidate me, only because they are so un-portable. i carry whatever i'm reading with me all time and big hardcover books just aren't travel friendly. plus, when i read a book, i am 100% devoted to reading the book. so i try to stick to smaller books for the sake of getting my homework done and having a social life. wow i sound like a nerd.
a quote from the novel that stuck with me,
"Isabelle gave me my going away present early. Inside the card was a five-dollar bill with the words "I love you" written on it with a blue pen. I wondered how i could spend a bill that had the words "I love you" written on it. Somehow I knew that I would, on movies or comic books. Love is a big and wonderful idea, but life is made up of small things. As a kid, you have nothing to do with the way the world is run; you just have to hurry and catch up with it."
this is a photo list of my grocery bill......
baba ganoush, the first time i misspelled it and google suggested "baby genius" haha
in order to make these.....
also, i saw a sign that said "5$ to anyone who shovels this -->" pointing to a large snow bank. hahaha i bet the boss told the kid working in the store to shovel it and hes banking on someone else to do it for him.
