crisp romaine lettuce, shredded chicken, crumbled feta, some ranch, and freshly cracked black pepper.

This was tonight's salad.

When drinking hot beverages and wearing sunglasses (or reading glasses if you're so inclined), one must beware the powers that collide when steam and breath meet.





In other news,

It is the vernal equinox and the end of the season of Virgo, my scales are beginning to balance.

If anyone wants to hear some gypsy violin or order a sweater pattern to be knitted or pillows embroidered, you should come find me at The Redwoods, as that will be my new home by the end of the month.

I have to go look up words in a dictionary...

my fingertips have the scent of tobacco far more often than i would like.
but then again, i'm young, and isn't it the mistakes of our youth that teach us how to live the rest of our lives the right way?
i am ready to see what fall becomes when you don't have to go back to school, and i am so ready for it as a season in general.
i am also ready to leave this country, it would just excite me so much to be anywhere far from what i know. the patagonian moonrise above, for example, would be excellent to see.
or a farm in belgium
or the beaches, mountains and deserts of morocco
or pick poppies in the czech republic

there are so many fucking opportunities out there. once i earn enough for airfare i hope i've narrowed it down to one.

i have to write a lot, since i do this sparingly, so all i have to say is:

i like
- biking through, into and out of the world (if you catch my drift)
- button down sweaters
- plain yogurt with honey
- the occasional saltwater taffy

fuck fuck fuck.
social life has been SU-PERB lately. Pysicus on Friday then Prom Saturday, two excellent experiences letting loose with the amigs, but then it was suddenly sunday afternoon before i could lower my eyelid for a blink and i had done NOTHING I'd needed to for school. and despite sleeping a good 8 hours post prom, I fell asleep several times during the day, so of course nothing got done. but that's okay because monday was sort of a snoozer anyhow. Afterschool I went to the library to get movies then home so I could do my long past due paper for African American lit. But I slept, even more. Then I came to school today only to find out there are more past due assignments topping the pile. Afterschool I biked to Arabic tutoring, got goatsheads in my tires and have one really bad flat that I have yet to conquer as I fucking fell asleep ONCE MORE for the entire part of the evening/afternoon I could've used being productive. And here's the thing: I'm up and adam (at 'em?) now but to do all the shit I need to it will render me incapable of school tomorrow.
It's shitty, I just can't catch up with myself and now is crunch time. It feels like there will never be time for school, fun, and adequate sleep, and I really don't know if this hole I've dug myself into is shallow enough to ever be able to resurface.
now i'm dozing off, again. this is the eternal debate of late: to sleep or to slave away to save myself from failure?

on ne sait jamais, mais la fin arrivera n'importe mes actions actuelles. où serai-je?

What I've Learned on February Break (thus far):

~ i cannot handle more than one clove a day

~ the sun is coming slowly but surely, we must embrace spring and savor the end of winter

~ yoga is the ultimate healer

~ i need to interpret my dreams

~ love is a many splendored thing

i finally found the glendale (a.k.a. russian) library.

i think i also just found glendale, not located, but the other sense. it's dreary, and though the weather made it the most depressing setting ever, all it is is apartments and immigrants. the latter part i appreciate, but otherwise, glendale is blech.

just had to put those 2 cents in.

oh, and a tattoo idea came to me:
"Love your freedom"

it's just, perfect. relevant. a good motto for anyone to live by, especially an american.

asian politics, though i've just begun to follow them, are really revealing to me the lack of democracy, even in 2007, in other parts of the world.

benazir bhutto is dead, so what hope is there for democracy in pakistan?
also, last week a famous artist was assassinated in Pakistan. it's as if the country's being deprived of everything that signified the minute presence of liberty there.

and in uzbekistan, opposition candidates weren't even allowed to run against the current present, though his term is already expired by 1 year.

it's just saddening to see the state of things in central asia, where every time democracy and free thought is given a chance, it's washed away in moments.

Parfois c'est le procès d'un repas qui conte.

Mes souvenirs me sont venus sur les chemins sensoriels. Les oeillets d'une cuisine française, le salon où les chandelles sont faites, la bois brûlante en hiver. Je les aime davantage, car cette fois, je les comprends.

quit the fucking weird scam job. woo!

i love the waldorf winter fair for its turkey sauages and amateur bach, even if the class of '08 had to be avoided.

fine, fine thrifting finds today. Let's hope "Jules, Tueur des Chats" is a good read.

may winter bring come soon, and may it lift me onto a cloud away from school and toward the jollity.

that is all, good nacht.

j'sais pas du tout.
life is just not really going anywhere right now. why is this year shit? (schoolwise).
i hate that i'm not dedicated to music anymore and my musical outlets (band and orchestra) force me to play terrrrrrrrbile pieces.
i have to start doing better in my classes. i only have three, but i've managed for the first time in my academic career to not do well in any of them.
i really should have gone to yoga today, i need it.
i also need to go back to ballet.
if this semester could just float away like one of those passing clouds you don't care to examine too greatly, i'd love it.

so, Little India is not a bad place to work, du tout.
but it always so happens, everywhere i work, that i'm trained by someone who is not fluent in english, so i have to break out the old rusty spanish and hope all my questions get answered.
but the one thing i truly hoped for, free indian food, came through. the kitchen men cook for the employees every night. He Ram! and i'm not even tired from that shift.

if you haven't seen "2 Days In Paris", do so. maybe it's just funny to me and marta, but i thoroughly enjoyed it.

i spent all of saturday in boulder, it was a blast.

i finally called green fine salad, my checks are in the mail.

UKRAINE! (if i haven't told you about it, ask me)

so, as of saturday i'm not smoking pot for a long while.

i need my memory for ballet.

and maybe it's this "detox" stage or the band retreat, but i feel so great, my mind clearer than ever before.

i wish we had more than 1.5 days in estes park, it really was wondrously beautiful. i'm thinking about the environment in so many new and different ways because of biology, and thus have much much much more appreciation for it. i really hated walking into school at the end of the day, so many people and just a lack of the peace that i felt up there.
i think i'll convince my mom to take a mountain day trip this weekend, she's always loved them and i've just begun to.

i love ms. kohzadi. she's just a beautiful person and sees and encourages the beauty in everyone else. that's all i want to do.

i'm excited for the fall, it's a season of culture. and with my birthday at the beginning it feels like i always take on my new year's outlook with the season change. oh, adulthood is so near. martiz, we have some tattoo research to do.

and if you didn't love shanghai before, le voilà:

today, i sat on my couch, indulging in the comforts and familiarity of my own home, and thought to myself: how in the hell am i going to leave all this in one year from now? how will i survive on my own in another country?

but now, i have hope, assurance even. i'm going (insha'allah) to one of the most beautiful places on earth.

i had a mental health day. and didn't get my schoolwork done. voilà ce que je ferai aujourd'hui.

bon, que ce weekend soit le plus beau.

i've been blowing my nose the wrong way for 17.95 years, but now i see the light. my nostrils are clear, and angelique kidjo is singing away.

if olivia would answer her fucking phone i could stop putting off my biology homework. or at least stop using this as an excuse to do nothing but upload music. damn, it's already nine. i got off work early so i could do this homework and have yet to begin.

fuck me.

i don't know what this is.

depression, emotional release, who knows.

but i don't feel content at all. and i hope it's not because i'm not at a party and i am not high. maybe just this summer which i am not ready to let go. please, just don't ever bring up its ending.

it's just, not good.

i just read everyone's entries from the past 7 days, and am damn glad i'm caught up.

it is day 2 of the week of life, and i've got all the muffin supplies out and have commenced reading Harry Potter 7.

on saturday, after working a good 12 hours, i found out mother goose had cancelled her party and i headed to lukes. don't know what it is about his parties man, but i can't set foot in that house without eventually getting recockulously fucked up. the first time i was the most drunk i'd ever been, and this time it was the ganja that took me over. i took 1.5 bubbler hits, then 1 HUGE hit of the bong, and was stoned off my ass and back on again. seriously, you would never be able to make sense of what whirled through my head. other than my state, it was a nice DSA mix: christina, vain, luke, charlie, zach, laura, storie, amanda, penda, courtney, britt, eric mossman. you know. and dandu made a brief appearance.

olivia and i crashed there, then i headed to take laura home before work. we got coffee at kaladi's, which was just what i needed. then i worked 11 hours, then headed to grete's mountain abode with LaTiqua. i had not succeeded in finding wine, so i prayed that we could find enough liquor to make do. and we did. GOD DAMN, that was a crazy, crazy time. one that you spend too much time thinking about afterwards. but we're all better friends because of it. so i took lauren to her car at 8:45 am, then was going to meet up with marta, but she wasn't ready to venture out, so i posted the coche and slept for a good few hours.

then we met up, i brushed my teeth in her car, and we made a day of it. a day of eating, a day of outings. climbed a tree in sundial, talk about Barcelona, Peru and Morocco.
and tattoos. god, it just made me so excited for the rest of my life.
i was still drunk until about 2 pm, and around 4 we chiefed down with SKB. 2 hits and i was high as a kite.
Paul HP got the goods, man.

i slept a full night's sleep for the first time in 5 to 6 days, and now i'm here.

tonight will be a hookah attempt. then tomorrow a lot of yoga, cleaning the car and room, maybe a haircut.

i love this week, and only 1.5 days have passed.

although i will love having money from two jobs, i hate working.
this and next week i'm working over 60 hours, and all I can think is that I'm wasting my youth away. i can't go out too late at night because i have to work at 7:30 every morning, and i never get a full night of sleep.
i want to just be able to see my friends during the day, and do whatever. so i'm quitting Green Fine Salads.
also, for lack of time and bread my hair has gotten long and revoltingly unstylish.

but who likes negativity.

i am so glad it's summer and i'm young and i'm meeting and talking to a lot of people.

i still have to:
-learn how to sew and become decent at it
-do yoga
-bake muffins
-plan a moroccan party with kate
-buy wine
-go on a mini-trip to Palisade and such.
-maybe get a tattoo

there's time, my friends.

well, apparently my sister is missing. somewhere in the depths of virginia, which is quite terrfying, but i've found i'm not freaking out at all. maybe because i haven't seen her in 3 years...

oi. but anyways, i got a vendor pass to 24 hour fitness and me and laura went to work out last night. i'm not sore at all, however, so i guess it wasn't extremely effective.

also, i started another job yesterday. dlivery with green fine salads. it's fun because it's downtown and on foot, and i get tips, BUT yesterday i only had 2 deliveries in appproximately 3.5 hours, so i was doing a whole lot of nothing. and still don't have a work shirt, nor have they told me how much money i'm making.

and i'm still trying for a third job, for to save up as much as possible.
