yesterday was so much fun it was overwhelming. honestly. i officially declare it one of the top five days of my life.

i usually get the urge to delete my online presence when what i actually want to do is delete my real life and start over from scratch.

i'm getting used to being alone. that's not to say i enjoy it. but it doesn't bother me as much as it used to.

i went to pitchfork fest this weekend. alone. i saw the mountain goats, jens lekman, and devendra banhart. each of them was worth everything. i cried a few times. i giggled like a moron. i danced. i ate a lot of vegan ice cream and drank a lot of water and sweated most of it out.

whenever i get lonely, i like to read rilke's "letters to a young poet", because he says a lot of brilliant things about solitude. it's essentially my bible. if you haven't read it, you should.

Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

today i found out that little miss sunshine is a "select release", which means it won't be in grand rapids until august 18. if i wanted to see it today, i would have to fly to new york or LA. that really sucks. i bet they're going to do the same thing with the science of sleep. are we honestly less deserving of seeing good movies just because we don't live in one of the entertainment capitals of the world? instead we have to watch whatever unintelligent garbage hollywood regurgitates into our laps?

the best birthday present was paul and craig playing a show in my room.
i wish i had more friends like them here in michigan.
i guess it's time for me to find somewhere new.
i wish i didn't have to wait until december.

last night at the bar, a man walked up and smelled me, said something about patchouli, and walked away.

i laughed for five minutes, then i danced like a maniac for two hours.

anyone have any good crockpot recipes? i found a brand new one in my parents' garage, and my mom let me have it. i'm pumped.

i also took my bike in to be fixed. it'll be working by monday! i can't wait! who wants to ride to riverside park with me?

i love bike punks. i love being in a crowd of 300 of them and watching the streets of a city fill with dirty kids on bikes eating dumpstered fruit. i don't quite know why i love this so much, other than the fact that it reminds me that sometimes, people don't just talk. they act on what they believe in. and it makes me want to do that, too.

also: paul is playing my/jake's birthday party. if that's not reason to come, i don't know what is. (july 21st, our place.)

anyone can create a pretty little bamboo garden in the world. but i doubt the gardener would succeed in incorporating the world in his bamboo grove.

why do i only get great ideas for new projects when i have no time? like wrap pants, felted wool, and a recipe box.

witty insight #48:
i am studying photo and working in a computer lab.
my brother is studying computers and working in a photo lab.

that, my friends, is hilarious.
