throwing out all the art my mum saved for me. surprisingly, some of it is worth keeping i think. i just have the strongest urge to paint right now and i can't because all my paints and brushes are in toronto, sitting all alone, crying out my name. speaking of toronto, i have a ton of shit to bring home to a place with no space to put it.

i doubt i'll sleep well tonight

i have no idea what to wear to my first day of training. at least i have some clothes i brought home. some.

i guess all that bitching payed off after all.
all you gotta do is have no faith in yourself.

probably couldn't get a job if my life depended on it.

probably couldn't get a job if my life depended on it.
i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong, maybe it's the fact that i don't enjoy acting like a cocky piece of shit and that instead i'm honest.
as of tomorrow, i'll have had 7 interviews. none of which will have called me with good news. none of which will likely even return my calls.
the irony?
a lazy sonofabitch who really doesn't want the job, who likely steals, and expects time off, will likely be hired before me because they have experience forcing purchases down customers throats.
apparently people don't want to hire an honest, friendly, hardworking girl unless she knows how to manipulate people. apparently commitment is not worth the time.

i'm sorry that i'm not 100% sure if i can sell $350 worth of crap every hour.
i'm sorry that i'll try my hardest, but that's not good enough.

rant. rant. rant.

i can't believe
how you're still able to make
my heart skip a few beats

and you didn't even say a thing.

what i'll miss:

the purple cat pants that Shirley wore to class every week
the awkward moments when naked people talk to you
staying up wayyy too late finishing something
spending approximately 4-6 dollars for a sheet of paper
being in love with a lesbian
going shopping between classes
thirsty thursdays at the pub with a bunch of friends who are way too old for me
finding out everyone is too old for me
using the walls as storage space
buying art and fashion magazines and calling them "textbook expenses"
feeling extremely inadequate
seeing a ton of penis, boobs, and/or vagina every class
the art kid graffiti on bathroom stalls
jokes that involve art history
having a foreign professor who couldn't say DaVinci
bullshitting the "meaning" behind your work
having the entire living room floor covered in feathers or cardboard
finding an excuse to keep things for future projects
learning that stealing isn't actually bad
wanting to do homework cause its fun
ogling over the beautiful TA
staying all three hours of the printmaking open studio
having 13 hour days at school
getting into the AGO for free
eating pancakes in class
learning how to use the woodshop
being told to cheat and plagiarize ideas, the right way
painting sticks and pinecones and steph's face for drawing class
creating a sculpture for painting class
being able to say "yes, i go to school in the crayon building"
drawing naked people
finding paint in your hair or on other places of your body
burning myself with multiple glue guns and soldering irons
hearing at least one person justify their project by saying, "i cut myself and got blood on it"

or something along those lines.

fuck yeah art school.

i guess i'm really bad at reading people,
or maybe just a lot worse at it than i had thought.

oh well, i'm sure i'll get over it soon,
but for now it remains an unpleasant shock in the crooks of my day.

journals are for babies

diaries are the hip thing, didn't ya know?

anyways, i decided to make this blog for less serious posts, less cool posts i guess you could say. check out my tumblr if ya want.

i'm considering going to the bathroom on the fifth floor every friday at 11:30 now. it was a nice surprise that i could get used to.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011


please don't let this change you.
don't turn into two steps forward, three steps back.
i still need you.
i don't know if you're scared,
i don't know if you're hurt,
i don't know what you want
to make you feel better.
i can't know because you haven't told me.
please let me be there.
don't let this push you back.

the cheese stands alone

hi-ho the dairy-o, the cheese stands aloneeeeee.

Tuesday, February 8, 2011


the good news: all i have left to do is wait for the paint to dry.
the bad news: the painting i just finished, wasn't part of my homework.


don't worry though, it looks gooood.

Thursday, February 3, 2011


wow that really shouldn't have made me so happy i don't think. oh well, i guess i'm just easy to please these days.

ps: i had a dream about elephants, and although i was human, one of them was mine. as in my child. and i could talk to the other elephant mommies, cept they were elephants...

is my mind trying to tell me never to forget? never to forget what?

either way, i'm wayyyy too happy this morning to dwell on such things.

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

nicki day

massive attack: havin a nicki day. she's not bad, she's a sad little wannabe.


just doing some work - or lack thereof - in one of many sewing laboratories of ryerson. (the laboratories where souls are made)

printmaking day 1:

"survival suit for the city"
reasons why i like ocad:
1. please do not frame it.
2. you can leave as much noise as you want.
3. erase the ink if you want.
4. who cares? see what happens.
5. play. have fun. and learn.

found this on someone else's blog. pretty sick. kermit tesoro.


Monday, January 10, 2011

okay, you were right.

yummy in ma tummy

back with a smile

maybe 8am classes aren't so bad. the walk wasn't horrible and its great to get up in the morning.

Friday, January 7, 2011


ps: thanks for asking me to grad and accepting my later request even after i told you no. i'm so glad i decided not to be stupid. i remember i was sooooo nervous asking you that i slipped it in at the end of our conversation when i was sitting with you on the bus so that just in case you said no, i would be able to get off the bus REAL quickly. plus i could feel my face turning red when i even thought about bringing it up.
except you didn't say no. :)

the skinny

how society has managed to flip itself around.

stay gold

jealous of that photographer

not only an amazing photograph, but when i saw it, i saw that whole night again. i can't remember a time when i was more excited for this, the first time i'd ever felt such anticipation. i guess thats what a favourite band does to you. i still can't believe that we saw the end of this band. the love for fall out boy is a forever thing. what an amazing show. i'm proud to say that they stole my fandom virginity, and they're probably what brought the three of us so close together.

long live the car crash hearts, and long live our friendships. and best of all, long live true romance, we shot it in the chest and in the head.
