I'm on tumblr now too!

Because I'm a real woman of the 21st century, I've joined Tumblr! Well okay, the real reason is that Lauren Russo has one and I was jealous. But still. Check it out sometime. It will eventually be cool. I hope.

Autumn = Changes

I have many things to work on this month, otherwise known as the last month before I'm 25. Here are the things I hope to achieve:

- develop the ability to start a blog and continue updating it. That goes for this one* and Thaibreaker.
*actually, I'm going to transfer over to tumblr. More on that soon!
- find a place to live in nyc and move there on a semi-permanent basis
- get my finances in order, for real.
- start an exercise regimen I actually enjoy and stick to.
- make some good art (etsy postcards are a good start but not quite good enough)
- develop a plan for the next three years
- world domination
- if not the above, at least get one friend from richmond to move to nyc
- become organized or not as bossy or a good flosser

virginia trip plan!

well needless to say, I'm getting extremely excited about my upcoming trip to virginia!! I'll be flying down (in an airplane for the first time in a loooong time) the day after tomorrow and staying until next Monday! Here are some of the excellent adventures I plan to have:


Spending time with all my Richmond friends, hanging out at Plan 9, getting breakfast at Can Can and every other meal at either Sticky Rice or Ipanema, enjoying the steamy southern summer weather, playing in the river, and of course at least one visit to Racine for cheese fries and a chocotini made by edward norton!


Not only do I get to see my besties Jen and Nora, but hopefully they will bring me shopping (please?). And we shall not forget the obligatory trip to Eppie's to marvel at my Pasta Font and a visit to the donut guy at the Cville Farmer's Market!!


Enough said. Me + Britt + Zack.


Mom. Meg. Steph (up from NC!). Pop's. The Shadowbox. Yes please!

Five Reasons Why I love NYC

  1. The Brooklyn Free Store -- No hours or money exchanged, just sharing and recycling in a radical, amazing way.
  2. Butter Lane Cupcakes -- Bakery run by punks, with dozens of frosting flavors to mix and match with chocolate, vanilla, or banana cake.
  3. Pete's Candy Store QUIZZOFF -- Last week our team ("Ghost Friend") got third place! We won a free sandwich!
  4. Subway Station Mosaics -- Especially ones featuring underwater creatures wearing goggles.
  5. -- NYC news of the most snarky, hilarious sort
