Relax, Take it Easy.

This is what I've spent all day doing. Reading a book, listening to a band called Local Natives, drinking tea and just relaxing on my porch. It has been truly a good day.

Sweet Samson

I love this song, as well as this girl. Regina Spektor has some of the best songs in the world. She's got a brilliant voice.

My brother and his best friend are currently back packing through Europe as I type this. I cannot even express to you how jealous I am of him. He's going to all these awesome places and I'm crazy jealous. On my list of things to accomplish one of them is now backpacking through Europe. I want to travel in general. I'm going stir crazy sitting in Louisiana.

These kids are from Staten Island's PS22. (Public School number 22). They're from mixed backgrounds and most of the kids qualify for cafeteria assistance. The teacher, Mr. B, has taught these kids so well. He is so inspirational. Check out more of their videos. They're sound is so innocent and pure.

Abandoned Pier

There's this abandoned pier down here that a lot of people know about and like to frequent. I love this pier. It has graffiti all over it and it's crazy rusty. It seems like it's about to fall down any day, but won't. Here's a few pictures I took over there (:

Or as most other people know it as, New Orleans. I recently went there with some friends to walk around the Aquarium, French Market and Bourbon Street. All I know is that I love it there. I wouldn't want to live there, or even go to school there, but once every now in then it's an amazing place to go spend the day, or the weekend. There were so many buildings that were broken down and abandoned that I wanted to go in (I have a way of finding myself in abandoned places), however, my friends persuaded me that it wouldn't be such a good idea. Now, any other city, fine, no problem. But not in New Orleans. Here are just a few pictures that I took while I was there.

Broken Hearts

I came across the story of a little girl named Ellie today. My heart broke as I read this family's story. Ellie was an 8 year-old little girl who passed away this morning after suffering from cancer fro nearly 2 years. She was a fighter, oh god was she a fighter. Please, keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. #LiftUpEllie


My car is in the shop right now, and I can't think of anything else to do. I never really realized just how much I use my car until I had to go without for THREE days. Now, I know that doesn't sound like a long time, but I'm attached to my car. I love it. It's not a really nice car, but it runs and gets me from place to place. I've had so many memories with friends in that car and I'm quite missing it. Now don't get me wrong, I have awesome friends who come and pick me up, but it's not the same. I love driving. I wish it would be done soon

Recently, I went to my pawpaw's camp in Cocodrie, which is possibly my favorite place in this entire earth, and they told me I wasn't allowed to fish. Now, I love fishing, shrimping, riding out in the gulf and just hanging around. However, this time that I went I wasn't allowed to do any of that. Why, you may ask? Because of this damn oil spill. I'm sick of BP pretending like they're doing something when they're not. They're running a commercial that states they have paid 18,000 claims of fishermen, shrimpers, and people who earn their daily living from working in the gulf. Well, I hate to break it to you but 18,000 is not a lot. It's barely putting a dent in things. The worst part about it is, that I believe that our economy will never be the same again. BP needs to fix their mess, because I want my safe haven back.

Recently my sleep schedule has been SO incredibly out of wack, I'm not even kidding. So in my attempt to get it back together (before work and school starts back up again) I've decided not to sleep tonight and see how it goes. Most likely, tomorrow by noon I'll be a cranky mess. Quite literally actually. I'm going to the Audubon Aquarium tomorrow with some friends and I predict it is going to be a long day. I'm bringing my nikon and am going to attempt to take some awesome pictures while there. Hopefully, we will be able to go site seeing and take some crazy awesome pictures while at it. Wish me luck.

In the mean time, I'm making a cd for tomorrow, cleaning my room, picking out an outfit, packing up my camera and necessary camera accessories, putting all my dorm stuff together, snacking and playing sims 3. Hurry on up 8am! I'm so ready for this little road trip.

Just Breathe

Today an especially good friend of mine decided to mutually end the relationship for the boy she truly still cares about. I know the pain of a breakup, my decision or not, and I am greatly saddened to see her hurt like this. Whenever I am at a loss of words or at a loss of thought I always listen to this song. It calms me down and brings me peace. I hope it does the same for you.

Recently, (read: yesterday), I signed up for Netflix. The first month or few weeks or something was free so I figured why not! Oh my goodness. I'm completely in love with silly netflix now. It's crazy. I love the fact that I can watch any movie, tv series or anything right at the tip of my finger tips. (I'm all about instant gratification). Plus, it's only 9 bucks a month. And I have a group of really great, amazing movie buff friends. K is 21, her fiancee G is 26 (most darling couple ever, btw), J is 24 and R is 25 (maybe?). Well, I became close with them when I was working with K and J at the bakery. Now I absolutely adore them. However, they're huge movie buffs. They have a few years on me too, so this is a great way for me to (sadly attempt) to catch up!

I've started arrested development (one of their favorite shows) and I've finished all of Season 1! Now on to the next one!

So. There's this song by Neon Trees called Animal that I'm obsessed with. You may have heard it on some commercial , I'm not sure which one though because I don't watch TV that much. However, I found an acoustic(ish) live version of it that I like so much more. And when I say like, you should read it as "I've fallen obsessed with this song and have kept playing it over and over and over again." You can check it out below (: !
