i love when you suddenly realize that a song you love is actually part of your life, especially when its one you didn’t write. the heart-filling feeling it gives you is unlike any other. its this manic charge that makes you realize music can truly be universal, despite the fact that it is so deeply personal.

...but i'm trying.

...but i'm trying.

“french navy”
camera obscura

spent a week in a dusty library
waiting for some words to jump at me
we met by a trick of fate
french navy, my sailor mate
we met by the moon on a silvery lake
you came my way
said, I want you to stay

you, with your dietary restriction
said you loved me with a lot of conviction
i was waiting to be struck by lightning
waiting for somebody exciting
like you
oh, the thing that you do
you make me go, ooooo
with the things that you do (you do, you do)

i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it
i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it

i’ll be criticized for lending out my art
i was criticized for letting you break my heart
why would i stand for disappointed looks
fully grown but i’m all on tender hooks

oooo, with the looks
on tender hooks,
oooo, with the looks, the looks, the looks

i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it
i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it

relationships were something i used to do
convince me they are better for me and you
we met by a trick of fate
french navy, my sailor

i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it
i wanted to control it
but love, i couldn’t hold it

i’ll be excited when i start helping ian with his magazine…i’ll get to be able to write about music again.
in the meantime, i can’t stop thinking about how nice monday night was and how much i’m going to miss you. i hope i get to do it again.

i hate to admit it, but its true.

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.

the past week has been nuts. fun, but nuts.
expect a more detailed update tomorrow. but for the moment, i think cleaning my room and sleep are an order.
i hope everyone is starting out with a great week — i have a feeling its going to be a good one.

the craziness that my life entails at the moment.

again, sorry i haven’t updated! i’ve been doing so many things at once and trying to get all these things together that i’m not really sure where to begin with what i have to say. it seems like all the time i spend on my computer, i’m trying to catch up on my google reader, i’m emailing writers back or i’m transferring money to my account because i’ve been spending way too much of it lately! haha. anyway, i can give you a rundown of the past few days…

  • monday — was ridiculously hot by san francisco standards. sat through a meeting with the editor-in-chief, the managing editor and my page designer. was a good few hours long, but definitely what i needed. registered for the rest of my classes. went out for jeremy’s birthday — as typical, got in a fight and everyone left the bar. bought him his first cosmo and got myself my first shawerma. YUM.
  • tuesday –had a leisurely breakfast with alexis, la boulange’s granola and fruit bowl is amazing. went grocery shopping, spent the afternoon in japantown. doug took me to little star for dinner — tried the thin crust, and it was just as yummy as the deep dish. i love you little star! then we hit up clothes contact and i got a sweet waistbelt for kayla’s birthday and we made a trip to good vibrations, which is always informational and entertaining…
  • wednesday — went downtown with kayla EARLY so she could spend her gift card at urban outfitters. of course, the one day we actually get up, they’re doing inventory until 12pm. one free coffee with doug and lots of sunshine later, we decided to hit up dottie’s true blue. i had never been there before, since the line is always a deterrent. it was delicious [i had the blue cheese, bacon and veggie scramble with HOMEMADE wheat toast and potatoes.], and the people were super nice [kayla ordered lunch 30 minutes early but they made it for her anyway.] its super tiny and great, but not worth a two hour wait. we went back to urban and they changed their sign to 1pm, so we flipped them off and left, since kayla was a little under the weather. for some reason, my day took a downturn here, but i ended up going shopping with kelly and doug in haight, which left me with two awesome scores: a great new pair of sunglasses and a classic mickey mouse pullover that i had been looking forever for. [and it was only $8!] after saying hi to matt at comix experience, we had dinner at herbivore. i ordered their veggie shawerma and though it had loads of ingredients, was not impressed. i will stick with truly mediterranean!
  • thursday — went to the gym in the morning and sweat my brains out. met up with doug for some fro yo and a little hangout. met with one my writers and discussed the semester ahead of us. he’s worked for the weekly before and seems to be really driven about what he wants to do so i’m really stoked on it. he listens to all the music i don’t [grindcore, black metal, et al], so he’s going to help me out with show reviews and the calendar, which will be perfect! after, i dropped off a roll at photoworks [which i will pick up today!] and went to needles and pens. met up with stuart and saw the devil makes three at amoeba in berkeley. their show was really great — the perfect kind of punky, upbeat bluegrass i like. they will be playing the next two nights at the independent, so check out some great local music! but, let me just say, berkeley pwned us. we couldn’t find one dive bar in one square mile. it was sad. we even bumped into one of my friends, jack, and still to no avail. we ended up having a good night in the city. there should be a post soon here, so check out all the deets.

phew. what a week! i know its going to get even busier when school starts, so hopefully i can keep up with it all. :]

i know there are enough obama t-shirts circulating…

…and trust me, I am guilty of owning my own Obama-esque t-shirt.
But can’t we have just one more, especially when it looks like this?
In 2009, this trend will die forever, as this design is obvious of that, but lets just enjoy it one more time before it falls six feet under.

this is hilarious. you need to own it.
