It calls me back

Little Joy- No Ones Better Sake

Well I returned from vacation 3 days ago and already I am off again. This time, a family trip to Florida. I couldn't stay away too long from the ocean. I so look forward to being the biggest bum ever. My plans include: runs on the beach, yoga in the mornings, reading, laying out and swimming. Nothing more, nothing less. Wishing that certain someone could come with. 3 weeks cannot come soon enough. Anyways, I hope to be able to blog once or twice while there but am not quite sure of the internet connectivity, so we'll see. As for now, I'll leave you with some summer-ey photos and some music by Little Joy.

smell of your salt on my skin

Laura Veirs-To the Country

After returning from Cape Cod and Boston, it has suddenly come to my attention that it is necessary for me to eventually live somewhere by the sea. I adore crisp, chilly beaches filles with fog and mist, full of the smell of salt in the air. I miss waking up to the sound of sea gulls every morning. There is something about life near the sea that is so charming to me. Perhaps I was a sailor in another lifetime... Who knows. All I know is that I am drawn to the sea like a magnet. It quenches my thirst for something more. It warms my heart. I love taking ferries and feeling the wind whip my face, I love imagining all of the life that is going on under the surface of the sea, and I love the feel of the cold sand crinkling under my feet. I'll leave you with some pictures from the trip as well as music by Laura Veirs (it accompanies the pictures quite well I think).

Travel Travel Travel

Coconut Records-I am Young

"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." ~St. Augustine

It has come time for the annual trip with my Aunt and sister to commence. This year's destination: Boston, Cape Cod and and Martha's Vineyard. I am so excited. The past few trips have been focused on the west coast, from Vancouver and Seattle to San Francisco. I am so looking forward to checking out what the east coast has to offer. Plans for the trip are very lenient and it seems that we will be hopping from one little beach town to the next, finally finishing up in Boston. I will make sure to take a copious amount of photos so that I can share them with all of you lovely people. I will be gone for a week but hopefully will find time to perhaps blog in between. As for now I will leave you with some music by Coconut Records.

Rufus Wainwright-Maker Makes

my little bugger

There is nothing I love more than weekend mornings with my coffee (with peppermint creamer), my cat, and my blogs. One thing that is a new addition to this lovely Saturday morning, however, is a major life decision that has come to my attention. It seems that many people my age are coming to the startling realization that their college degrees are useless and that they have no fucking idea what they want to do with their lives. It seems to be the common thread of discussion during massive coffee drinking sessions with friends. Now that we have finished this four years of study, where do we go with what we have learned? Have we truly learned anything?

I can honestly say that I have learned very little, and that saddens me. I have improved my Spanish, but outside of that, I do not feel that my money went towards something of value. I went through 4 years of school to earn the right to have a piece of paper that says I am qualified. Qualified to do what? That's my question.

I suppose that I have come to this major dilemma because my whole life I have centered my actions around pleasing everyone else but myself. I keep telling myself that I need to make decisions for myself and not for anyone else, but that always seems to be easier said than done. I am sure that my family is so tired of my indecisiveness, but then again they should know by now that that is just a part of who I am. I don't want to be afraid to disappoint. So that being said, I am working on some new prospects with regards to the direction I want my life to lead. At this point I don't dare go into details until I find out more information, so stay tuned and I will be sure to keep everyone updated.

As for now, an going to finish my pot of coffee, fix myself some lunch, go for a run, and enjoy the holiday weekend.
