9-teen

tomorrow i'm going to be a whole year OLDer.......one-nine.
it's scary. i remember my sweet sixteen birthday & although it did feel like awhile ago, i can still remember it so clearly. i remember thinking it would take forever until i would hit nineteen. but... apparently not so. i'm excited :) for now...when i turn twenty i'll probably start getting depressed over the fact that i'm getting older.
but for now, i'll enjoy the benefits of being nineteen & of age ;)

the _______ of not knowing.



" The morning sunshine pokes through the blinds and lightly taps the young man on his face. With one eye slightly open and the other squinted shut he turns over on his side and checks the time. 7:30 am. Gotta get up. An arm reaches over his stomach and pulls him in. The young lady whispers, “just stay a few more minutes.” He turns over and gently grasps her, entangling his legs with hers. He slides his hands up to her face, carefully pulls her in and kisses her forehead, then cheek, then lips…three sweet pecks to the lips. “I love you, but I really do have to go now”, says the young man throwing off one of the sheets from his body. If only we could spend all day in bed…you holding me. ‘Cause a moment like that could be for eternity but once you leave i'll have no assurance of knowing you'll ever come back. Her thoughts could not escape her lips. So the young man gets out of bed and leaves."

40

oh. well say hello to family photos in the b-ground. hah!
i found this fun, flowy skirt at wasteland when i was done in LA [wasteland vintage store]. it's perhaps still a tad chilly out to be wearing it but i purposely wore it on a 'warmer' day. 
...it rained today...
so my strategy sucked. oh well...
after school nina, boris & i went for vietnamese pho :) mMM mmmM! really good stuff.
i think 97% of what boris talked about during our food was how much he was in love with pho. nina & i just laughed... & i had soup come up my nose a few times. 
thanks for introducing us to that little place bor.
this evening consists of TONS of reading & homework. 
lets dooooo this.

Something beautiful

i watched 500 days of summer the other night [sorry nina... i had to watch it] & i'm somewhat glad i watched it alone b/c i was left with a tear puddle the size of a bathtub once it was over. why had it taken me so long to see this movie? i'm not sure. i had wanted to see it long long ago but... me... not much of a 'movie watcher', i let it slip my mind.
it's true, what the narrator says in the beginning... that it's not a love story. i mean in a sense, if half way through the movie it just ended then yes: a love story. but it didn't happen that way.



& on a different note:
“I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.”

A change of plans...

Originally we wanted to cook dinner & bake/make a dessert afterward.
but knowing nina & i... we got lazy & realized that we never had the right kind of food needed for each recipe we were interested in making. so we skipped that idea, ate food from her fridge that was pre-made and also skipped baking because by this point we were tired of the thought & instead just... made... milkshakes [which were fannntastic].
& then we attempted to watch 500 days of summer...online... which was unsuccessful 'cause it kept freezing.
i hate to say that evening was a 'failure'. because we still had a nice time.. & i like rupert [her cat].. & i got to eat lots of yummy cookies...
 the end?

"i think i like it"

foto numero uno- the chained ring[s] is one of my favs i own- got it from wasteland when i was in LA last spring break... also one of my fav vintage shops. 
the cross earring & green ring are from f21. 
foto numero dos- this olay lotion is friggin amazing. i started using it on my skin while away in palm springs [for a week] & i luv it [for oily/dry skin types]. 
the covergirl smoothers lotion is also really nice. i just apply it every morning before make up & it's tinted so gives some color :)
revlon colorstay... seriously. srsly. the best foundation i've ever used. i personally like it. & to be honest i never buy super expensive foundations & so for the price, it works amazingly well on my skin- good coverage & last all day longggg
foto numero tres- ooh hello lovely bra. hehe. i just purchased this today from american apparel. it's dark forest green. i likee.
foto numero cuatro- zumreed headphones i also bought today @ OU. 
ralph lauren HOT perfume [nik gave me for Christmas] mmm mMMmm :)

simple state of mind.

[I watched this thing on the news tonight about road rage. kinda freaked me out... what do you do if someone is freaking out at you on the road & is following/tail gating/going ape___ on you?
it hasn't happened to me yet thank goodness...
i was thinking: well i would just drive home. but what if they followed you? creepy...]
no more housesitting for me which means waking up early for school & back to the long commute back & forth. it gets to be a routine though, once i get back into the swing of it. 
i've been getting excited about my upcoming bday... 19!
& you & i both know what that means. finally legal.
i'm still planning it all out.
I might'a mentioned in the past that i'm so obsessed over this lipstick [which i used up quite quickly] that i had'a buy it again. it's seriously an awesome colour. these pictures lie about it's colour because i have a tendency to fool around with the photoshop features... hehe.
[i've been asked before what i use: 
~mac lip pencil- magenta
&
 ~covergirl outlast all day lip colour # 548]

-of encouragement.

Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies (Psalm 36:5)
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11).
The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing" (Zephaniah 3:17).
"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands" (Deuteronomy 7:9).
...hope everyone had a wonderful sunday :)

There's a fire starting in my heart.

 "Think of me in the depths of your despair, 





Make a home down there as mine sure won't be shared"

last year my cousin made me this rad spike/braided headband.
i haven't worn it out yet 'cause it's not really the color of my hair.
[which of course gives me the perfect excuse to dye my hair lighter... hehe]
i'm staring at the clothing i got in cali while i was away. how i gotta wash 90% of them by hand & how badly i wanna wear the dresses. 
it's crazy what photoshop can do to your pics. my lips are actually a blueish black... only in photo can you actually notice...

good relationships don't just happen, they take time, patience and two people who truly wanna be together.

Just don’t fall.. recklessly, headlessly in love with me.  
’Cause its gonna be all heartbreak, blissfully, painful and insanity.. if we agree.
