Californian Christmas

This past weekend my mother and I ventured up to LA, this time bringing my grandmother along too. Christmastime is so nice and lovely, and everything has lights on it and is sparkly and it's great. So we went to Santa Monica, I thought that Georgian hotel was super cute. Then we visited the Grove, which is one of my personal favorite places. It was a great trip. Now, i'm in a post-Christmas haze, missing the comfort of the recently thrown away wrapping paper covering the floors, and cuddling up to my presents. I got a record player as seen above and I am super excited about it. I got everything I didn't even remember I wanted, and I feel grateful to have people who care so much about me. Now back to watching too much TV in an effort to relax to the max while I have time off from school. I wish you all happy holidays.

We will find a way through the dark

Today I had my last official class in which I completed my self portrait, as seen above. Tomorrow I have a presentation on women's reproductive rights in Argentina, and on Monday I will present my self portrait. But besides that, I am done. I am done with my first semester of college. I am extremely proud of my self portrait, it really progressed from when I started and it looks far better than anything I thought I could accomplish, at the same time I know its not perfect, but it was also my first attempt.Overall I'm really proud of myself in general. In life. I'm glad to be having a break, because I truly need it, but at the same time I'm bummed to switch classes because I like the ones I have so much. I'm also not interested in taking my general education, which is a problem. But I will do it. Because it's literally forced.

But I finally feel like I can sit down and breathe.
And get excited for Christmas. Finally.
Where's my Christmas tree?

things are a happenin'

I was just doing my own little thing and suddenly it's the middle of November.
It's almost Christmas????? Also it's strange because I only have a week of school between Thanksgiving and Christmas break. And I suddenly feel extremely overwhelmed and wow. School is difficult and frustrating. I'm ready for Christmas break but I'm bummed to switch classes because I like a few of them quite a lot. 
But I need a break. I'm ready for a break.
But I don't know if I'm gonna make it to break.

I'll see you around the beginning of December.

I didn't know one dot of 8 month old brown dye would murder the purple dye and turn all of my freshly blonde hair back to brown. Breathe. Is it too much to ask for perfectly lavender hair??? BREATHE.

but, it was slightly rainy (40% all day and all we got was a half hour drizzle at 8 am) i did get to wear my stellar new boots though. ah yeaaaah.

I love the word elbows. And i love the word walk. They are nice simple words that I can remember. I always used to have these bizarre favorite words I could never remember or spell, but then one day I realized it's okay to like normal nice things. Like pasta. I like that word too.

I spend a lot of time on Pinterest. It's just SO Addictive. The ootds, DIYS, recipes oh my!
And because I'm lazy and look like a greasy plate that used to have Domino's Pizza on it, unfit for any OOTD pictures, I am going to do a Pinterest inspiration post. I am currently streaming Prism of Queen Katy and having a dance party on my couch with my cat. as much of a dance party you can have while sitting down, which for me is still pretty dance-y.

Some of my recent pins

Anyways, get your booty on down to if you know what's good for you. wow, did i just threaten you? Even if you don't follow me (honestly, why wouldn't you i have an amazing pinterest) you should atleast check it out, due to the amazing things you didn't even know you needed to know.

From funny illustrations about your favorite show, recipes that sound like you might get diabetes in every delicious bite, clothes so gorgeous and beaded and you wonder how they sit down, novelty items, amaaaaaazing holiday ideas seriously amazing, fun little extras, beautiful beauty ideas. 

Wow, this sounds like an ad for pinterest, but i just genuinely love it so much.

This post took so long, I'm no longer listening to Prism, i'm now streaming 20/20 vision pt 2. Love me some JT.

so i had a really shitty morning. Feeling overall sad and unimportant due to the inconsiderate actions of others. But then I went to an Art Walk in Little Italy with my mom and it was pleasant and i won a OneDirection t-shirt it was the most beautiful moment of my life, I don't even know, the bad juju from my morning turned itself into pleasant happiness in the form of hot british boys that I can wear on my body. That's a weird way to phrase it, but you get my point. (they had a regal cinemas stand at the walk, and you spun a wheel for various prizes)

wow, look at this beautiful shirt I won

I really like going to the Art Walk, people reserve these spaces and do these beautiful chalk drawings and all the restaurants have tasters and there's jewelry and it's great.

Leonardo DiCaprio, so dreamy.

Oh, also, my first picture, the Tea one, I posted it on my instagram, and this girl I don't know liked it, so I went to her page, and she reposted it as her own. So i'm kind of pissed off but overall happy because that means my photo was cool and worthy of stealing. It's literally exactly the same, like really you're gonna tell me you took a photo the same angle and then added the same light effect to the side of it, alright. But what I am curious about, is uh, why did you like it??? I never would've found her account if she hadn't liked my photo. I just don't understand people. 
She's a pretty terrible thief.
