Shoegasm

Shoegasm

Holy crap, you guys. Was I talking about shoes lately? I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT THE SHOES! Today I followed a post on SFGirlByBay, one that featured some deliciously witchy/pilgrim-y shoes, and I went temporarily blind. BLIND. BECAUSE OF THE SHOES. My blindness-causers, let me […]

I want some boots

I want some boots

Something chunky, clunky, maybe with buckles? Something I can tuck jeans into, if I’m feeling saucy. Definitely something cute. Not knee-high, since my calves are too fat for that. Maybe about mid-calf? Grey, if possible! Out of these, I’m kind of leaning toward the Nine […]

Mix tapes!

Mix tapes!

Hey, look at that! You’ve got to give it to me for exhaustively cataloging my music taste for most of the last 6 years (and into the future, of course). I like it when things are orderly, at least online. You can see in the menu bar above, I’ve added “Monthly Mix Tapes” as an item, with a drop-down menu featuring all of the ones I’ve compiled over the years. On many of the mix tape pages, you can even have access to the embedded playlists as I’ve uploaded them to 8tracks. Yay! Eventually, I’ll have them all updated. Stay tuned!

Music Obsessions

Music Obsessions

I’ve been kind of obsessed with a few songs lately. Wanna listen? Speaking of music, I think it’s probably a good time to move my Monthly Mix Tapes over here from my Livejournal. I’ll probably put them in their own little section. Whee!

Aerial Iowa City

Aerial Iowa City

Did I ever tell you about that time that our friend Forrest took us up in his private plane to fly over Iowa City and Coralville? It was pretty righteous, as far as things like that go. It was also three years ago, and this […]

MacBride Raptor Center visit

MacBride Raptor Center visit

I was feeling particularly snarly on Monday, overworked/overwhelmed/pissed about my lost social life/pissed about my lack of private time, so Kevin decided to be the best guy ever, take a night off from the neverending garage project, and drag my sullen ass out to the Macbride Raptor Center to dip my toes into some nature. I’m so thankful that he did.

(Looking through these photos is particularly helping me today, since I decided to try a new foundation that is currently blotchy and flaking off of my skin, making me feel like a troll. Sigh.)

Stress kills

Stress kills

Really need to be doing more of this right now. I feel like the 14 months straight of work+nursing school is finally catching up with me, and it’s tossing me over the edge into an abyss of stress and overwhelmedness. I’m kind of a snarly […]
