Don't take yourself to seriously in life, it's not like you're going to make it out alive.

List 4:

Things i deserve a trophy for.

1. Ideas. I conjure up fantastic elaborate ideas that rarely make it off the paper. I think of magical and fabulous designs, that aren't necessarily able to translate into English words. Does that make any sense to you? Maybe this is one of those ideas.

2. Coming up with Witty comebacks. I've come a Long way since grade five where my staple was : "when you were born the Apocalypse happened!" and then running a way cowardly to the back of the handball court. I skipped the 'yo mama' stage (never liked those.) Then, i went through the whole introduction to sarcasm, which was like a metaphorical heaven for me. But, i still believe when in doubt, to just scream and run. It freaks your enemy out and you get away, smooth as silk. I think.

3. Baking. I like to eat, and i like to bake. I love that creamy texture of a cake batter after mixing it in that awesome hand held thing, and then dropping droplet by droplet of food coloring, dying the white mixture like poison. I love the smell and the colours, the eruptions of flavour and warmth in the mouth. The cute little cupcake sheets with flowers and hearts on them and the endless choice of icing tubes.

4. Photos. I like photography, and frankly, i believe i have a knack for it. That could just be my blind view of editing mindless photos here and there, and having sudden inspiration. Only problem is, i don't take photos as i go. I go to take photos. So sometimes there just a little to Styrofoam.

5. starting projects. Yeah, I'm good at that. But the finishing is something i really need to work on. Severely.

List 5:

Things i want to do before summer:

2. Write letters back to all those people i haven't.

3. Be more optimistic. being pesimistic is sorta suck-ish.

4. Be able to jump on roller skates.

5. Master making crepes.

6. Stop wasting time on mindless and pointless websites (facebook, more specifically)

7. Stop eating about, hmm... 12 cinnamon cookies an hour?

The paradox of our age.

We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness;
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet
the new neighbor.
We build more computers to hold more
information to produce more copies then ever,
but have less communication;
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods
but slow digestion;
Tall men but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It's a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.

Alice, don't be late.

Please, while the tea is still hot.
MY friend, Mackenzie, is one of the sweetest person in the world, if that makes sense. In other words, i love her. VERY much.
And in a result to that passion, i made her a tea party full of WonderfullyWonderland oriented decorations.

I undoubtedly had the least imaginative and boring costume, though i would like to add i supplied Alice, The Queen of Hearts AND the Mad Hatter with their costumes.
YES, i do happen to own that hat.
IF you haven't already sensed by now, I'm in love with Alice in wonderland. I love the costumes, the unpredictable adventures. How it wasn't really a dream, but she believes it is. It cause so much excitement when Tim Burton's preview came out in like November, i practically pissed myself in excitement.
Need for concern?

The jam tarts were the best part, i gotta say. And yeah, the Hatter said
"YOU'RE LATE FOR TEA!" and of course threw a scone at her. Or maybe it was a spoon?

HAI. MUSIC. Here's my play list, download if you dare. I mean off itunes. YEAH.

2. Quelqu'un m'a dit - Carla Bruni
3. Gone in The morning - Newton Faulkner
4. You make my dreams - Hall and Oates
5. Bitter heart - Zee Avi
6. Cosmic Love - Florence and the Machine
That's all for now muggles.

I was reading the Nylon Article from their beauty issue this year about Zoe Saldana. Avatar was great in all but i didn't really make it to my favorite movies. But Later, (as in when i got the beauty issue, doy.) i read about her and she's actually reasonably kick ass. She curses like mad and has an opinion. She isn't taken down by anything, which is something that i really admire in an actress. Sometimes they get lost in the publicity and go nuts. Aka, Brittany Spears. Another actress i really love is Drew Barrymore. I didn't have any outstanding respect for her until 'Whip it'. she really kicked butt. and she has all the pod casts and recommends amazing music, which is good to hear. its weird sometimes when you see that celebrities also listen to music and shit, since they seem so distant from our world. God, i need to shut up. By the way, my 4 ft 10 inches (NO JOKES) friend can give me a piggy back.
