there is too much to catch up on, i know, but which one do i buy?


they’re all the same price, so that’s not even a factor. i just need a nice black bag because i need it to match my outfits better. love my brown one, but i’m anal about black and brown pairings.
i’ve also discovered this week that i can have an insane amazing crush on monday and have it fizzle by friday. how fickle my heart is.

present and correct — a new obsession.

all this stuff looks amazing, right?! present and correct are the best stationary site i’ve seen in awhile.
ever since i was small, i have always been obsessed with stationary, notebooks, pens and organizers. though it has switched to different kinds over the years [from composition books to making my own to japanese stationary] it’s always been there. it might be because i’m a writer — but i have so many journals and notebooks built up that need use.
but the second i stumbled upon this website, my mouth started watering. actual vintage book belts?! that may be a trend that i need to bring back. but for now, since i am completely broke and unwilling to ship things from the uk at the moment, i will just keep drooling and hoping i can ship some stuff soon. book belts!!!! i can’t get over it.

ps: happy valentine’s day. hope you’re spending it with someone you care about.



its like, the rarest.

i’ve had a lazy day and a great week. first of all, lets get started with ootrff:

  • since i started wearing sneaks again after acquring my court forces, i’m all about them now. i’m thinking about buying more and more pairs everyday. the special coraline dunks are super pretty [doesn’t that movie look adorable?] and these married to the mob tributes to chanel are gorg. i want em all right now
  • this is pretty old but this photo set is still creepy as fuck.
  • the indie mart is back! i’m thinking about doing a preview in the paper for it. i’m pretty stoked, since i missed the christmas one. i’m hoping to save a little cash so i can maybe go shopping — they always have pretty cool vendors.
  • going out to eat. dammit, it will be the best of me, but i don’t care. i love trying new places and i’m determined more and more to try different types of food. i’m still wanting to go to mission street food hardcore.


i think i’m staying in tonight. after getting baked today and going to stuart’s house and eating way too much [fuck dude, i realized how much i ate after i left and its a little worrisome. it could be because i didn’t eat anything but an apple in the morning but shit. hahaha.], i’m pretty tired, sleepy, full and happy. i want to go out, but a lot of my friends are hanging with people i don’t want to hang with or they already have plans with others. plus, its fucking storming out and its been scattered showers all day, which sucks. i feel like i have been wearing the same outfit for the last month because its the only thing that i can wear in layers and i look semi decent. on top of that, i’m flat broke and still trying to go to the grocery store. [though i seem to be avoiding it like crazy.]
this week’s issue was awesome, if you go to state and you get a chance to pick it up, do so. my section looked really good and had little errors in it. a lot of the stuff in the news section ended up looking horrible, but that’s alright. the only thing going in my portfolio is my page.
i need to meet new dudes and people, its one of those feelings coming up again. it happens every time i go through a breakup, i think. which is good, that should be the rule for everyone. i’m just so bad at going out and talking to random people by myself. and i’m convinced that i don’t really look approachable. i’m trying to work on it, but i think a lot of people get intimidated, which i hate.
also, i’m selling tickets for noisepop on craigslist! help a girl out and get cheaper tickets! i’m willing to negotiate.

i went to battle and came back with an awesome page. i’m really stoked for this week’s issue and i’m hoping everyone else is, too. its amazing what kind of possibilities can happen when you get your work done ahead of time.
i was just trying to type out how i felt about things on my typewriter but i kept messing up. i’m still getting used to all the buttons and things that are very new to me. which it strange. cause its old.
regardless, i really want to start filling all my journals. i own and have so many for everything but they’re never full. always a quarter, or half. i even have some that are three-quarters full and that’s even more maddening.
i have about $160 in my bank account for the rest of the month. that should be fun.
i also think that the [x]press disease bag [aka the newsroom] totally exploded on me and i might be getting sick. i’m hoping to fight it off so i can go to some awesome bars on saturday.
i did my laundry for the first time yesterday at my laundromat and it felt strange, but really really good.
i’ve been in a bad sushi mood lately. [bad sushi = americanized sushi.]
more coherent and happy thoughts later. cause i love my life right now.



…and, i’m back.

so after taking a day for myself to go around and run errands, walk around in the sun, smoke a little to relax and going out with a pretty good friend for dinner, i feel immeasurably better. i ate good food and soaked up some carefree-ness that i obviously needed.
since its kind of a crappy day out and the only thing i’m going to be doing today is taking carlos out to lunch [sorry dude, i was just way too tired!], i’m going to spend the day doing homework, drinking coffee, watching movies and

what a beaut!

what a beaut!

relaxing. i just bought funny face and breakfast at tiffany’s, and i’m also considering pineapple express. then again, there is always netflix. [watch helvetica, the documentary. though slightly boring, it will be super interesting if you’re into design even in the least.]
so on thursday night, i went to this amazing indian place in the tenderloin with daniella and jack. it was byob and a lot of fun, but guess what i found on the street? A TYPEWRITER! and not just any typewriter, but a working, italian typewriter from the ’50’s with working ribbon still in it! i’ve been playing with it on and off all weekend and on friday night, i made valentines on it. its a dream. i’ve always wanted one and it was like a sign when i found it. plus, when i googled it, it was known to be the journalist’s typewriter of choice back in the day, so maybe i’m right? :]
last night, i went to the elbo room and [FINALLY!] weird fish with daniella. weird fish is surprisingly super amazing. we got way too much food, but a chance to try everything. both of their soups [spicy tortilla soup and clam chowder] were really good, but i liked the spicy tortilla soup slightly better. the yo-yo’s, which are fried dill pickles served with two different sauces, WERE SO GOOD. seriously, i know you’re thinking, “what the hell?” but they were awesome. and lastly, the fish and chips were to die for. slaw, salty french fries and sweet potato fries as a basket base? call how the newsroom looks all the time.me a fat kid, but i’m sold. and the tilapia and cod were both delicious and flaky. sorry i didn’t take pictures — we were having a pretty serious conversation and the place was cute but no bigger than the size of a cardboard box. check out weird fish! its surprisingly affordable and really delish. i’m still looking to go to msf in the coming weeks.
the other thing that bummed me out was i found a pair of leather ferragamo flats at a thrift store for $14 [i’m pretty sure the girl upcharged me from the original price, but ev.] and they’re like a 1/2 size too big! i want to cry, i loved them a lot. they even had a bow on the toes with a gold ferragamo piece between them. :[ if anything, i might try and sell them on ebay or to someone i know for the same price. i am determined to find a pair and will keep looking on ebay to find one that fits. i also need to repair this amazing vintage dress i picked up last month…there is always so much to do!
expect more frequent updates…since i will be in the newsroom a lot and because of circumstances i will have a bit more time on my hands, i will work to give you guys some more content.
have a lazy sunday.

ps: also, if joaquin phoenix got off the smack and realized he’s a great music video director, maybe he wouldn’t be renouncing his acting career, trying to rap or showing up at san francisco planning commission meetings.

this is my favorite by them. favorite favorite favorite. its as if shoegaze and the smashing pumpkins fucked non-stop for a week and had octuplets. its that good. i can’t wait for the new album, or when they come back to town again. [long story short, carlos’ boss is the aunt of the keyboardist which means FREE TIX.]
but on a side note, who watches music videos anymore anyway?

this week has been hectic. i was putting out fires at the paper all week, not eating and then overeating, not getting any sleep and not seeing any of my friends. i almost broke up with my boyfriend at school yesterday, while sitting two tables away from some really close friends.
i don’t know what is wrong with me. i really need to find a routine that doesn’t stress me out while i’m in production. since the weekends are pretty much the only time that i have any moments to myself, i need to find ways to cope. its not that i don’t want to be there every step of the way with the paper, but i also need to not drive myself to the point of insanity. i was so stressed out last night that i smoked a joint at school. i thought that i would never do that, but i was just so overwhelmed that i did it. and i don’t want to be that kid anymore, the one that gets high before class and makes grades and thinks its fucking hilarious. idk. i want to keep weed out of the picture for the moment.
in other news…
american apparel got stopped! how awesome is that?
anyway, i’m still waiting for my tshirt to come in. c’mon print liberation, don’t let me down!
tomorrow is going to be a much needed day of errands and running around the city. hopefully i’ll run into someone? i’m hoping so.
and i got my financial aid money! YESSS. 😀
expect pictures soon. i’m sorry i haven’t been busting them out as frequently [or posts for that matter], but i’ve been in the newsroom all week and the last thing i need is a gig of pictures from those arrogant assholes.
what did you do this week?
