I wish I was in Amsterdam right now walking along a canal wearing a t-shirt and sandals and feeling young.

Instead I'm in my dorm room feeling cold and sleepy and studying for an art history test.

let the sunshine in [Mar. 23rd, 2010|06:58 pm]
springtime sunshine, afternoon light, long shadows in the hallway, coffeeshops and raspberry syrup, thinking about Lynda Barry and how good her books make me feel, the new purple streak in my hair, the feeling of being utterly and infinitely comfortable in a single moment.

I'm going to be okay.

Things are very nice and very terrible lately. Basically I feel bipolar about everything. Some really shitty stuff is going down, and it doesn't help that I've talked to absolutely no one about it, so there's this cloud of black smoke growing in my chest. But then some things are so excellent and creative and inspiring right now. I'm not sure how the two can manage to fit together.

Anyway. I'm starting a Zine. I'm excited and nervous. I'm writing a comic about me and a Lamassu becoming friends.
The only thing that really makes sense right now is making things with my hands.

at this point in the chaos of my life, Coffee Tuesdays keep me sane. moderately creative caffeine flow + sharpies= good idea.

my life contains a worrisome shortage of reading//writing lately. i need to do a tech catharsis, i think. i should at least block hulu.

gotz ta write 2 short stories.
gotz ta get with the groove or i'm gonna lose it.

I am 20 in (roughly) 17 minutes. And I feel (roughly) 12 years old. I should curl up with some Potter and some hot chocolate to welcome this new decade of my life.

This year has been full of good friends, new adventures, lots of coffee, lots of TV on DVD, lots of inspiration. Let's hope the next one lives up!

hot prada mama [Mar. 2nd, 2010|06:20 pm]

Chunky knits! Tights! Mismatched shoes!
I'm no designer fiend, but Prada's latest show has given me some nice FASHINSPIRATION.

I spent 2 hours at the public library today working on my short story, and I have absolutely nothing to show for it. To celebrate my failure I got coffee with Anna Gross and we talked about ZINES and how we want one. After coffee we got burritos, because it seemed like a natural progression. Long story short, lots of failure but also lots of victory.

Important things right now:
My new obsession is LOST.
I've been reading some more Niel Gaiman because he's the best.
I'm so tired of cold but I love wearing scarves so who knows!
I thrifted a super nice//big//environmentally friendly tote bag. Love.

I'm generally succeeding at everything I attempt lately (good news!) which means I should probably try some new things. And even if I fail that's OK! Probably! Just remind me when I get depressed.

Last week snotty baby gave way to pukey baby. Stomach flu tops the list of last places I want to be. HOWEVER a few epically good things happened. I will chronicle them in order:

1) ICPA Illinois College Press Association (which we re-dubbed Illinois Casual Penetration Association). This was fun times. 20 newspaper kids smashed into 3 hotel rooms. A lot of alcohol (I didn't drink but it was amusing to watch). The thrill of competition! We won first place for our Orientation issue, which was basically the best paper ever released by anyone (holla!) We won 2nd place in overall excellence (not as catchy as Numba One but much better than number three). And bum bum bum grand finale I won 1st for my column. Eek. No words. Actually, I do have some words because having words is my only purpose.

I can't believe a column I wrote about zombie attacks on campus won out of all the columns in my division. I'm honored and overwhelmed and incredibly happy. I haven't been spreading the word because I honestly don't know how to react. I'm proud but I feel surprisingly modest-- I'm not one to brag my accomplishments, but usually I'm pleased when people know. This time I'm so shocked that a week later, I'm still reeling.

2) Saw Neil Gaiman with Teresa and Jake! A few words to describe the reading: charming, british. Actually that's all I have. I love him.

This is being cut short because I have work. Goodnight, sweet princes (?!)

I am a snotty baby, but I'm leaving tomorrow for the ICPA conference in Chicago SO MY BODY BETTER HEAL ITSELF PRONTO.

My life has descended into a grand, messy hell-pit in the last 3 days. My futon is currently a pile of dirty clothes, graphic novels, and empty orange juice cartons. When I get back from class I flop across it and catch 15 minute naps before I take off running again.

In conclusion, I can never get sick again. I'm no good at it,
