leave of absence

finals are here. and for me that meant 5 projects piled on top of me. ive been nonstop going back and forth between them: painting, drawing, photoshoping, coloring, researching. sheesh. but i like being productive. even though im not used to not going out on the weekends, i like the fact thats its keeping me busy, and entertained at the same time. i guess i can say all this art stuff is just preparing me for future jobs. i dont know how some people do it. go to work everyday knowing you wont be doing something you love and that youre passionate about. i wouldnt let myself be in that position, much too sad and waste of something good i have going for myself. anyways. ive been off blogger for awhile. and im posting this to say ill be gone from here even longer. just until i figure out some design work. ive been meaning to make some time to try and redesign this blog of mine. i get tired of its simplicity. only thing that gets in the way is all this coding and html junk, eghh. ill get past it. until then. ciao.

share the love

when i need it most

last few days have been feeling not so great. i need to make some major changes and stop being so hesistant to ask important questions...

im so thankful to have the best friend that i do. i don't get to see her whenever i'd like to, but whenever i need acknowledgment she always knows the right thing to say, always. she has so much wisdom and i know God is speaking through here to be my help when i feel i can't go it alone.

But to His child, the Lord says: "No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content with being loved by Me; with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me to have an intensely personal relationship with Me alone, discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found.

Only then will you be capable of the most perfect relationship that I have planned for you. "I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing… one that you cannot imagine (Proverbs 3:5-6).

I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you. "You just keep watching Me. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am. Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you. Just waiting-that's all.

replace intimacy with intimate devotion to God...she told me. i thought i was putt
ing Him as my center, but i realized that i need to be giving more and more of myself all the time, whenever possible. use what i know and apply it greatly to my life. ive been praying nonstop about it! and the power of prayer is greater than any other power i know.

sat on a mountain of vintage happiness

i had the most amazing thrifting experience yesterday. one of my good friends lives in long beach and knows alot of good vintage places around her place. so we went walking down one street trying to find some good deals. and she mentions that every last saturday some shop has a pile sale every last saturday of the month. lo and behold, it was the last saturday of september! it was La Bomba in downtown long beach. we walked to the back of the store where they keep this sacred pile and i find myself staring at 18ft wide 11ft high pile of vintage treasures! so the three of us climbed to the top of it, made ourselves comfortable, and dug through that beautiful mess for a good hour. unfortunately we didn't have enough time and endurance to stay up on there, it was getting way too warm by the way. by i walked away so proud of my bargains: two dresses and a skirt, all for TEN DOLLARS. ahh so happy after that, lovely day.

this was the pile, but this was not me.

Richard Avedon

i went to san diego last weekend to the SD museum of art. my friend told me about a photographer Richard Avedon and of course i said i'd go even thought i've never heard of him. turns out i ended up reallyloving his work. most of his portraits are subjects of political stature but they're pretty stunning in my case. the photos here are way too small to real take in everything. in person the pictures are 20 times bigger and so much more enjoyable.

i didn't see these photos in person, but i looked up his work and found my favorites

the rest of the photographs are my favorites out of the ones i saw at the exhibit

i got my urban outfitters catalog this morning. and i found these awesome booties! i went online to check it out more. and now i don't know which color i like better. the one on the left is the first i saw, theyre so cooool and i love the funky print. they reminded me of Klaxons. mainly something that Simon Taylor-Davis would wear. but the navy ones are adorable too.

just one of those days

this past tuesday felt like one of the best days of my life. no i didnt do anything special really. just went back to school, and i love my classes so far. i had a two hour break at one point. so i got myself some Mcdonalds and dropped myself in the "park" across from school. i had never done that cause, well...i guess i never thought about just laying in the grass, by myself. but other people were doing it so figured eh why not no ones gonna be looking at you funny just because your laying alone. anyways. it was so peaceful, i don't know why i haven't done it before. it was such a nice day compared to this whole summer. not uncomfortably hot, but there was a nice breeze that would come and go.

my second class that day ended early and i was just getting into an even better mood by then. i swear it was scary how happy i was feeling. i wasn't even impatient waiting for the bus. which is how i usually am.

prayer is such a powerful thing, and God has really blessed me with a greater joy and gratitude for the things i have been given. and blessed me with other God-loving people whom i love so much. not only that but im feeling so much more confident about different things and opportunities coming my way.

every good and perfect gift comes from above, down from the Father of heavenly lights, with whom is no variation, or shadow of turning

and i know many people have read Perks of Being A Wallflower, and that one line made be overused now and marked as cliche. but there are just those days when you say it to yourself, and you do feel it, and you just want to close your eyes and you want to stay in that moment where it seems as if it couldn't get any better

i feel infinite

Henry Hadlow

ok so my sister sent me this link to a blog which led me to find this great new graphic designer. and let me just say i fell in LOOOVE with this guys work. just looking at these three picture made me feel happy allover. im easily amused with graphic design and this guy is one of the many that really catches my eye. pure genius


i miss Italy more and more everyday. the landscapes, the food, the architecture, the smells, the language, the music, the paintings, the villas, the fashion, the weather, and yes even the gypsies! i know one day i will be back there and next time it wont be just 9 days. i would love it if i could study abroad there, it would be such an ideal place for an art career. painting on the bridges of Florence and Venice working in an art studio and learning to speak italian. ahhh i cant wait...i cant WAIT.

dio mi paziente.

Title Magazine

(Title Magazine is a bimonthly online publication that collaborates with writers and artists to bring readers a collection of works that focuses on leading individuals and appealing topics in the art/design, music, and fashion culture) And it happens to be run by my younger sisters good friend. Issue No. 3 is due to be out the end of this month. I also helped contribute by writing an article for the artist Erin Morrison [] whoopee for me! After finishing that article i realized that i can really get into writing when its on a subject i love. While i wait to see what else happens, support Title Magazine fellow bloggers!

it's really heartbreaking to see people fall and how this generation is going in all the wrong directions. things that once weren't acceptable are suddenly being passed as being ok. doesn't anyone else see this? it makes me sick.

before through and beyond

im thinking that no longer will i let those certain people in my life bring me down no matter how brainless and immature they can be. if there's one thing i'd want to let these people know is that you need to calm down. how many many times can i count those complaints i hear everyday. why is there always this huge belief that our life is out of control when it's really not. we know who's in control so why we stressin?

sad to think i'm not so close with those best friends anymore, but then i had a losing but gaining for better right? yes. losing those who didn't encourage me or keep me close to God, but gaining a whooole lot more who are anchored with Him. what more can you ask for? THAT is enough to satisfy.
