oldschool.

    
     There is officially one place in town that still does one hour photo developing. Everywhere else I go people look at me like I'm mad when I ask about ye olde dinosaur, film. Like, seriously, not only does our brand new Wal-Mart Supercentre not develop film ("at the moment," they're out of photo paper they claim...?) but when I asked the clerk at the head of the photo department where the film was, he squinted at me and said he thought it was somewhere in the electronics department. And, lo and behold, there it was! A quaint row of film between ear buds and rechargeable batteries. Why is the film not in the photo department? Why does no-one develop film anymore? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD THESE DAYS?! Now excuse me, I'm going to go into my 1984 Citation motorhome to put a pot o' tea on my gas range and watch a VHS tape in my video cassette recorder, which is hooked up to my CRT television, thank you very much!

a wee bit of advice.

      Don't settle for anything. And absolutely never, ever change yourself for anyone. That's my new rule. I am just going to be me- and who gives a fuck if I'm a bit shy, annoying, or batshit insane? Because as long as we act as ourselves, people will either love us for it, or they can suck my left one. Now I'm going to go paint. Have a great day lovelies! xoxo

Summer Manifesto

      Hello, lovelies! Are you enjoying your summer? I sure hope so! If not, why don't you try and write some rules to live by for these glorious few months? I sure did!
  • Enjoy each day as much as possible. Want to go out and do something? Then go out and do it, dammit!
  • Drink lots of water. Or lemonade. Or iced teas. Try to stay away from soda and coffee, hard as it may be!
  • Lose your inhibitions. Go say hi to that cute person over there. Dance your hardest. Sing. Go crazy!
  • Smile! It's the single best thing you can put on your face.
  • Try something new! I almost have all the protective gear I need (sans helmet) to learn how to longboard. But, I want to try lots of new things! Yoga! Knitting! Everything!
  • Make some friends! It's not hard, but it's so rewarding! You may be surprised at how amazing people can be once you get to know them.
  • Also, cleanse your life of those poisonous people! Delete them off Facebook, your phone, your messenger, everything! If they don't make you feel magical, you probably don't need them around.
  • Cherish every moment, it'll be over faster than you think!      ♥ ♥ ♥
     Do you have any words to live by this summer?  Share, share, share! It's good for the soul, love!
ps. I am totally working on a mixtape for you! Hurrah! xoxo
