Today I heard someone call Owl City "Owl Shitty", greatest thing I have heard in a long time. WOW. They blow. I also realized that my zipper on my pants has been down all day. Peek-a-boo pink boy shorts. So hot right now. Anyhow, I really don't have time for blogging today. But here I am, a disgustingly dedicated blogger. I am already running around like a mad man trying not to forget anything and everything. I guess I should have realized that every time I pack for a trip, it takes longer than it should. Overpacker indeed. Throughout this process of packing tonight I was looking for a bag to stuff random necessities in and upon finding the perfect one, I discovered that I stuff old purses inside of old purses inside of old purses. I suppose I use my old purses as storage space for smaller old purses is what I am trying to say. Who does that? Fool. Gah, I'm really worn out. Alright, off to California I go! Dear Cady, you're the best. I miss you already.

Today I was thinking about some of my all time favorite words, why? I am not sure. Words like conundrum, existential, and Givenchy, are just a few that seem to roll of my tongue with pleasure. I find myself being a person who takes lots of notes. Oh! That's why I was thinking about my favorite words, I was rummaging through a pile of post-it notes I had in my purse, each listed with thoughts...some making sense and some I had no idea where I was coming from when I scribbled them down. I found one with these three words scribbled on it. I also found one with a bunch of random records I want to buy, a brand of jeans I want, a list of random numbers, one that said "we take all kind a pills to give us all kind a thrills but the thrill we never know was the thrill that'll getcha when you get your picture on the cover of the rollllling stone." when I get songs stuck in my head I tend to write them down multiple times. I have a page from a few weeks ago that was basically a montage of lyrics from the songs "Woodstock" by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" by Neil Young, and "The Wind" by Cat Stevens. It is quite literally an entire page that says "Everybody knows this is nowhere. I listen to my words by they fall far below, I let my music take me where my heart wants to go. We are stardust, we are golden." I guess that just shows how often I've got music on my mind. My hair is curly and foofy today, bugging me. Speaking of hair, my current state of nothingness is getting old. I am still going to continue the long process of growing it all out. But I'm dying to to something with the color. We'll see how I feel in a few weeks I guess. xx JR

Oh ya know, just listening to Kaskade and a little bit of Bieber, trying to concentrate on other more important things..yet here I am sidetracked. I want to share my sparkly new shoes with you that I wore today. I do. Also, I caved! I bought two new pairs of heels this weekend! But I will share those later, they will probably be featured in a project my friend Zef is working on. Now, back to more important things...like working out. xx JR

I'd like to do a post dedicated to my favorite movie of all time. Everything about this film is fantastic. I find myself making time to watch it once a week, and I am not ashamed. Penny Lane is in my soul, and she's not going anywhere! "I always tell the girls never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriously, ya never get hurt, if ya never get hurt, ya always have fun, and if you ever get lonely...just go to the record store and visit your friends." And that is something I truly believe.

So you may or may not remember this post that I did a few months ago. Basically it was a small list of the things I wanted to accomplish this summer. A dream list more than anything. Well here is the thing...summer has yet to truly begin and I am about to complete nearly half of them. I am so full of excitement!!!! One I said was that I wanted to eat kiwi's every single day. And as long as my mom keeps supplying an endless abundance of kiwi's...I will continue to eat them as often as I want. :) The first thing I put on the list was to take a road trip to the beach. Well next weekend I will be road tripping to Long Beach, CA and parking my butt on beaches all along the PCH, frolicking in the ocean, and attempting to get a tan. I can't wait, it is a much needed getaway with the girls.
Let's see, another item on my list was to complete the entire Sex and The City series. Have I done that yet? No. But I am quite close. I just finished the third season. And sometime this weekend I think I'll start the fourth! I feel pretty good about it.
Next up is my sweet sweet love, New York. I want to go back to New York and eat at my favorite restaurant, Carmine's. Thank the heavens I'll be going back this summer. I still keep craving their penne pasta in vodka cream sauce. Sweet mother, I need it.
So...I saved the best for last. The minute I found out that this was happening I text Cady and spout out all kinds of words of excitement. A dream I have been wanting to happen for so so long is finally happening. In...15 days I will be on a plane, and I will complete the one thing on my list I was so sure would not happen for years. I'll see Jim Morrison's grave at Père Lachaise Cemetery. I will do everything I have wanted to do and go everywhere I have wanted to go. In Paris. How did I get so lucky? Mon Paris ici je viens!!!

What a change of pace! I had a really lovely day, and I'm happy about it. I looked forward to dinner at my sister's all day, which turned out to be delish. Not to mention there were no creeps at work today, and I got to eat a million reeses peanut butter cups. Success. So every night when I go running with my mom, we go the same route through our neighborhood. I remember the couple who lives in this certain house, because when I was little I was so taken with the woman. I always saw her out walking her dalmatian and she had ridiculously long beautiful brown hair. I secretly wanted to be just like her. I haven't seen her for years and years and I find myself wondering what happened. I know they still live there because they still drive there little orange VW hatchback. It's also funny to pass another house because every night my mom and I notice something new in their yard that is rainbow. Tonight it was something spinning in the window, but I must say, one rainbow flag is enough people. I suppose tonight I will post some photos of the shoot I did last weekend. I should be getting more soon I hope. But I have to say I feel very proud of this one because my mind was behind it. I just needed my bffs to help me complete it! After the shoot was over we obviously took some photos of the team and they are..something else. It's a little bit of proof that we're out of control. I threw on a baggy tank over the tube top I had to wear and yes, I do realize that it makes me look overweight and (due to the fact that everyone was wearing heels besides me) stubby. Oh well, what more can I do.
Yep, I am definitely strugglin. It's getting harder and harder to be a good friend to someone who won't talk to you. Quite frankly I am exhausted. It's difficult to be understanding to a friend who often says she's struggling with many issues but won't talk about them. It's clearly having an effect on me, seeing as how I can't sleep. I hate to be the person who is back and forth on how I feel about my friend situation but I have to say, if I could move away and start over I don't think I'd object at this point. I think it's best I stop worrying about being a good friend and focus more on my family. Because clearly being a good friend has become overrated these days anyway. As for now I think I will start by inviting myself over to dinner at my sister Emma's tonight..Emma you have been forewarned.

I am still very much stuck on my desire to buy new heels. I can't control it, but I am trying my hardest. It's definitely a struggle. Gahhh! So today one of my favorite people and friend, Cady, made me realize something so powerful; how lucky we are to know what we want out of life at such a young age. I almost feel bad for people who are going to school and still have no idea what they want to do with life. And I feel especially bad for those who feel that getting married is their only option. Life has so much to offer and I figure while I am young I need to take full advantage of every opportunity handed to me. It's all happening :)

At work today I checked in a patient who gave off the creepiest most raperish vibe I have ever felt. It sort of left me feeling awkward and uncomfortable with life. However tomorrow is a new day and I'll be back to normal in no time. I love pictures of people on the street. I'm determined to have Scott Schuman or Tommy Ton snap a candid of me one day, what an honor it would be. The very last picture is my favorite, one day that will be me. The end.

This summer I was planning on taking a math class, but I bagged that idea and decided to focus on my French. I'm quite positive by the end of the summer I'll be able to carry on a simple conversation. I came upon this idea just yesterday, while I was driving home from Park City. The drive was so pretty and it felt so nice with my windows down! There is nothing better than turning up your music, opening your sunroof, and cruising the freeway while sipping on a smoothie. You're left with nothing but your thoughts and it's quite an experience. Summer has arrived, and I'm going to do all that I can to enjoy it! And math does not fall under the category of enjoyment...sooo there's that.
p.s. this song makes me feel extremely happy and summery. :)
