Where Have You Been?

Right here. Well, kinda. I’ve been back home twice, went on a cruise, rode on a train to see my friend. Mostly right here, though.

These aren’t in any particular order. Who needs organization and order? Not I!

Around Christmas time, I went over to my best friends house. This is pretty indicative of most of our interactions.

This is my lil’ ole Christmas tree. It sheds glitter like crazy.

I finally got fed up with some Pinterest comments. If you don’t like my caption, you have option to change it. Yes, I am that petty. Methinks I could write a whole post about feminism, its meaning, and the way its executed.

I’m the kind of aunt who reads at her nephew’s birthday party. It was at Chuck E. Cheese. Don’t fault me too much. Now that I think about it, when his sister had her birthday there years ago, I was reading The Autobiography if Malcolm X.

I still hate to drive. But I felt so cool driving my brother’s Dodge Charger. I love this car. If only it were painted Plum Crazy, it would be perfect!

Did I mention I started school? <y campus is not this fancy. I went to visit my friend at her college over spring break. They have historical buildings and sheep. We have a DJ every Wednesday, and other random times.

I was eating this whilst watching a documentary about the corruptness of the sugar industry in America and how it affects our excessive sugar intake. I almost felt bad for eating the cake. Somehow I managed to eat it all.

I may or may not have had a spaz attack when I saw Jenna von Oy appear on Bill Nye the Science guy. I sent my friend the picture because we both love the show Blossom. (I may or may not have forced her to watch it. I don’t really remember.)

A super blurry picture of me in my Easter dress. I made it in one day with relatively few injuries. I need to redo the side zipper, a couple of stitches in the front, and add snaps to the back (I was too lazy on Saturday night).

That’s about it. Eventually I’ll post about the cruise and Christmas.

December/November/October? Recap

So I haven’t really been doing much. Shocker, I know. I also am not very good (or just can’t be bothered) to put thing in chronological order.

My views on ‘being a feminist’ equality versus justice and all of that jazz deserve posts of their own. This past weekend I finally got around to making a statement clarifying my views as stated (in passing) on this pin. I decided that if I got one more comment about me not identifying as I feminist I would make a statement so hopefully no one else will take it upon themselves to comment pointlessly on my pin. These comments do not open up a conversation, but rather point fingers… at a stranger… on the internet… ON PINTEREST! I was going to take the high road and be super diplomatic, but I figured I may as well be snarky, ’cause I was annoyed haha. Just so that we’re clear, now that I’ve commented, I’m no better. I realize that. It was fun though 😉

I drove my brother’s super nice car to my friend’s house. I think he should give me this car when he gets sick of it.

I came home to find brand new Snoopy pajamas! I usually open these on Christmas, but it was super cold outside, and these pajamas are sooooo warm.

Here are my parents starting a puzzle. Well, mostly my dad haha.

Last week was Lil’ Ruffneck’s birthday. Here I am at Chuck E Cheese before church. Somehow it didn’t register in my brain that this was his birthday part, even though I knew that it was his birthday.

I decorated my small purple tree like a week and a half ago. I had to take it down,  so I could bring it back to my parent’s house. That’s what I get for procrastinating.

When I was home for Thanksgiving, I worked a bit on my mermaid tail. Oh yes, my mermaid tail.

During that week, I also got to see my best friend. She’s a mess, if you weren’t able to figure it out by my facial expression.

And because it’s Christmas, and these harmonies are on point…

Halloween and Stuff

I guess it’s a little late for Halloween stuff, but whatever.

We went to a pumpkin patch two days before Halloween. It was actually a church parking lot with some pumpkins lined up, some hay, benches, and a stationary tractor for photo ops. I’m not a very spirited person, although I do enjoy holidays. Maybe next year?


Here’s my dear niece, the Photographer, on some hay.


Here I am as the great pumpkin pimp. I’m wearing a Prince shirt with an Elvis purse.



The day before Halloween, we went to a party. I was supposed to be a wind up doll, but I couldn’t get my key to stick to my back. I just so happened to be reading Peter Pan at the party and was asked if I were Wendy. The Photographer was a fortune teller. Isn’t she gorgeous?

On Halloween it was rainy all day. I watched Halloween I and II. I ate candy. I’d say it was a good day. I felt bad for the trick or treaters though.

Recap of my Week

I like to live in the past. Here’s a recap of my week. I’m feeling nostalgic already.


We went to the golf course on Monday. I read Sylvia Plath and managed to get lost while driving a golf cart.


I took my first selfies that same day. Y’all can officially call me a sellout.


The next day I tried to get a profile picture for my Instagram. It was a long laborious process.


On Thursday, we went thrifting.  I got 21 vhs tapes for $2.50! I got all of that fabric, the bias tape, and the Jane Fonda record for under 17 dollars. The Hawaii record cost me one whole dollar. I think I overpaid.


These two tapes were highlights for me. Dancin’ Grannies is just my speed; I’m glad I picked up the beginners tape.


This is Tiger, the Other Sister’s dog. He’s my best buddy. I snapped this while deciding what shoes to wear to the concert.

I went to a Lenny Kravitz concert. It was pretty killer. I love the way he moves!

IMG_0307-1.jpg
This is me looking a hot sweaty mess after getting home from the concert. I’m still trying to get used to documenting my day to day life. It’s so weird.

On Friday, I babysat Lil’ Ruffneck while the Other Sister got her hair cut. The security system rang the whole time because it’s battery was low.  He telling me to turn it off, but sadly I didn’t know how. Earlier this week when I babysat him, he puked all over the place. I have a terrible track record.
Later, the Other Sister, the Photographer and I went to the mall. Here’s the Photographer eating Chinese food. I got some stuff from Claire’s. I’m really bad at documenting what I do.

 I painted my nails today. Neatness is obviously not my forte. Neither is taking pictures. I thought about being artsy and holding something, but the only thing I could find was a peanut butter jar.

It’s been a good week. Any week that that you make it out alive is a good one methinks. OH! History in the Making finally dropped the EP I’ve been waiting on since forever.

Oof! That modern music makes me long for something old. Here’s the Ronettes singing one of their many overlooked and underrated songs.

Alright, I guess I should go now (another song title… I wonder how long I can keep this up)
