i stole the above picture from my friend katie’s blog. another katie that i don’t really know, but whose blog i read, is combining some of the most fun things ever: lovely scarves, fun mail, and new friends. she’s hosting a scarf swap! go to her blog, loves of life, to find out more! am i signed up for this swap? you bet your sweet bippy i am!
i signed up for the scarf swap yesterday, and it must be kismet, because look what i got in my email today!
pretty sweet, huh? i was excited before, but now i’m super excited.
in other news, the starbucks next to my school is beginning to feel like a second home to me. i like it better than the one on main street for these reasons:
1. the people are nicer
2. they play better music most of the time
3. there are four times more comfy chairs
4. duh, it’s next to my school.
and now for a friday five, which i’ve neglected for quite some time, as i haven’t been blogging as much as i’d like…
hearing: clinking of dishes, and clair de lune, one of the best classical pieces of all time. so beautiful.
smelling: sweet nectar of the gods
tasting: banana chocolate vivanno smoothie. yummmm.
feeling: tension in my jaw, b/c i unconsciously clench my jaw when i’m concentrating on something
seeing: a girl with a cute haircut! (i just looked up to see what i could see)
download this: empty, by ray lamontagne
(i really wanted “be here now”, but it wasn’t on myspace. definitely check it out if you haven’t heard it. actually, my advice is to just download both albums, gossip in the grain and til the sun turns black. they’re beautiful, and i love *every* song. that doesn’t happen with very many albums at all.)
today’s favorite etsy item: handmade vintage journal by stories divinations. i think this is a really cool idea, making journals/sketchbooks, etc. by rebinding vintage books, especially french ones, b/c i love anything french. 🙂
