random thoughts . thirty-one.

July 30, 2009

I’m back!… Or so it seems. :) Back to blogging, that is. I’ve been horribly behind on LIFE, but now thanks to emma & bear, I am feeling sane again :) I don’t know what I would do without her!

Summer is in high gear lately, and we have been busy bees over here at the headquarters. In between watching “So You Think You Can Dance” of course! (Um, Travis, you are amazing. You need to be on the show always now because I miss you from season 2!!)

re: so you think you can dance.
Jeanine, Kayla, & Jason. That is all.

re: travel.
I actually have some pretty amazing (at least to me) photographic/discovery/exploration journeys that I will be making this coming year, and I am beyond excited. :) Especially excited to show you all what’s in store and what I will be discovering. :) Road trips are coming!

re: film.
Something I’m rediscovering for myself. :) More on that later as well. :)

re: blogging more.
I’ve almost been blogging everyday this week. OMG, it feels good.

re: music.
Just saw The Album Leaf play yesterday, which I loved. Also been loving Owl City – his music just makes me so happy!

re: inspiration.
A map of the world.

re: you.
How are you, dear readers? Tell me something. Anything. A personal goal of mine lately has been to listen more, and in order to do that, I need people to tell me something. I’m serious. Send me an email, and just tell me something that has been on your mind. I am here to listen (or read, really). I may not be able to reply deeply, but I promise to read all of your emails and give them my full attention while I’m reading them. :)

re: a quote to leave you by.
When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life. (unknown)

    Welcome back to the blogosphere; I have missed you.

    re: me

    I am working on my own path of discovery and have a list that beckons me to keep walking down that path. I’m still not sure what I am put on this earth for but by the end of 1001 days I think I will be closer. I don’t spend enough time with my mother but I’m working on it. I love the calming effect that running has on my mind and I have fallen into a wonderful love/hate relationship with it. I have been itching for a creative outlet but still haven’t attempted to discover what that “outlet” will be. I I ate two brownies for breakfast and for about 2 seconds felt guilty about it. Before my run tonight I ate a Cold Stone ice cream cupcake and I felt like I was in heaven.

    over and out.

    I definitely am for Jeanine but I always love the nerdy non-obvious dancer and that’s Evan.

    My goal right now is to learn more photography, to just love it and enjoy it. I want to learn more everyday. I finally got a DSLR camera, so excited!

    I have just stumbled to this site and this is indeed a cute blog. I am also on the verge of finding the “outlet” that would fire up my creative side.Hope I won’t need a thousand days to discover and fuel my photo skills again.

    Welcome back! Ever since discovering you, I look forward to looking at your blog to view new photos you post. You’ve helped to rekindle my love for Polaroids. In fact, I love, love, love the Polarized Application on the iPhone!

    I really like your Random Thoughts! Please keep sharing them. They are often an inspiration for me. And your photos for fun that you place with them are good too. I especially liked the quote on happiness that you included today. Thank you for sharing.
