It's kind of hard to sum up anyone in just a few words, and I'm no different. But if I've somehow sparked your interest, I don't mind being added. I check out everyone who adds me, but I don't always add back.  I'm not mean, I'm just picky. I'm mostly just looking to make new friends who are interesting, creative, and at least somewhat intelligent. It also helps if we have things in common. If you'd like to introduce yourself first, just leave a comment here.

First day of September and my last day in Seattle, my new favorite place.
A day spent riding buses, getting lost, flowers, seafood, beer, an underground tour, and a giant bunny.

I just calculated (yes, bored), that if I keep up my 365, it'll end next St. Paddy's Day. SWEET.
I'll also be legal by then, so I'm pretty sure I'll be trashed for that particular self-portrait.
In any case, I'll have to go out with a bang. Head-to-toe green body paint anyone?

Other notable occurrences (if my calculations are correct):
Day 200 will happen on my love's birthday :]
Day 208 will be my birthday.
Day 232 will be Election Day.
Day 262 will be our four year anniversary :]
Day 290 will be New Year's.

I really hope I calculated correctly, or else I'm gonna be pissed at myself for not being able to count to 365.

I just got waaaaaay too giddy over learning that there will be a Hannah Montana movie coming out next year.

And I'm listening to the tv soundtrack for the third time in a row now.

".....cos I really am a rock star."

You know how it is when you're just completely overwhelmed with head over heels love for someone? It's funny how the simplest thoughts can bring about that feeling. Just sitting on the john, taking a leak, and suddenly you remember how he surprised you one morning with your very first tripod. Which makes you remember how he bought you your first real camera and how he got you the camera you'd been craving for the longest time. And then you realize it isn't just about him buying you things; it's that he's helped you delve even deeper into something you've always been curious about.

And it always figures that your skin and your hair behave perfectly once you get home, something they'd never do when you need them to. Or maybe it's just that the lighting's different in your bathroom than it is in the hotel's. Or maybe it's just that you're used to your lighting, so you're used to how you look in the mirror at home and that the hotel's lighting shows how you actually are. I always wonder how I really look to other people.

Sometimes I imagine myself from outside my body, to try to see how I look to other people, to see how I move. I always wonder how people perceive me, like how you sometimes judge people on their looks. "She's a bitch, he's a frat-boy, she's slutty, he's a perv." What do people label me as? How do I come off? Do you ever wonder if you're the exact person you always bitch about, but have no idea? I always get irked at those stuck-up girls who boss everyone around and just seem overall unpleasant to be around. But am I that girl?

It's these trips that take me away from the norm that always bring about thoughts that seem to have always been lingering about my brain, I just didn't take the time to think about them. Reading does the same thing. I should do both more often.

Day 100 - June Twenty-Fifth - Range of Emotions
You must see it bigger. It's much better that way.

It's day 100/365. So proud I made it this far.
Lots of ideas floated around my head, but I decided on this one.
Mostly inspired by the idea of making a personal mood theme using just photos of me.
For once, taking the photographs was the easiest part. The hard part was putting them all together.
Thanks to my slow ass computer, it took me nearly two hours. We really need a new computer.
