just to drive

You know you have awesome friends when you can just drive around and have a good time. I love driving on back roads bumping music sining along in worst possible voices, sometimes not remembering the words but pretending to. I had a blast this weekend occasionally got out of the car for a photo opportunity.

I have been really busy lately just with starting to work and juggling school. getting up at 5am is still hard. But thats what coffee is for. Yes thats right coffee I have opened up to the world of coffee. I now drink coffee on a semi regular basis. I enjoy my coffee especially in the mornings. Opening up to new things. For the moment I'am really happy but on occasion still frustrated. Fall is officially here starting tomorrow. Hope everyone enjoyed there summer.

yoga new's

Yoga was so good tonight. We have moved on to a little more advance poses and started venturing into meditation. I can tell you right now that it really does work. My Yoga instructor told us that when you meditate you do all your hard yoga poses first to get the body loose . I basically only went into mediation for only 5 min , like dipping your toes into the water. But I can tell you its nothing like i have ever experienced. It was a state I did not want to get out of. It was like all the weight of life just lifted for those few moment's and it was just me content, all my worries were far away in place that I could not get to. I know this is like me being a hippie ,but it really was awesome.

In Memory

In memory to the people who lost their lives on this day.

insects and rain clouds

While I was up in Oregon, I never once saw one of these terrifying bugs. Here in Northern California see these things around all the time. I personally see them most often dead in our pool but on occasion I see them alive. They are called Potato bugs. They are the most terrifying insect next to a big spider. I have had the unpleasant experience of having one on me at one point. But I came across this guy as I was on my way into my front door.

Fall is on it's way, I can feel the temperature change. It has gone from the high 90's to mid to lower 80's. Summer is on it's way out. But I'm looking forward to the season changing. The first set of rain clouds i have seen in 3 months.

Now and then

Ok so I was talking with my lovely friend Kat , when she brought up another friend and used the phrase " I just want to put him in my pocket" Then the conversation lead to Polly Pocket's. You will remember them if you were a little girl in the early 90s. They are these cute pocket sized compact houses with little people in them and were able to move them around and put them into place of the little house . They had the most simplest faces two dot's for eyes and one smile. The only part that was flexible on them was there torso so they can bend over. Other than that very simple, but so much fun!!! Polly Pockets are still around but I'am sadden to say that they are total pieces of shit now.


Here are the reasons-

1.- Polly Pocked now is about index finger length . I guess you can say she is still pocket sized but her house isn't!
2.-She now has a pair a lips and a nose. Seriously, Polly Pocket looked way better without all the real characteristics of a real human being.
3. The old Polly Pocket came with the wardrobe there was no changing her . Now Polly Pocket comes with an array of clothes to change in and out of. Which i feel bad for mothers today cause i know those clothes are getting sucked into vacuum cleaners everyday.
4. I don't really have anymore reasons I think the ones today just suck .

Anyway that was my rant for the day. Just thought I'd share.

P.s While we are on the subject of Polly Pocket I came across this little jem. It's a Polly Pocket bracelet. Adorable.

Animal crackers in my soup.

Sometime's I wish I could be a fly on the wall or maybe just a mind reader would suffice. If only.....

I have been "out of touch" purposely . I need some time for myself. This blog or my phone is the really the only thing i keep up to date on.
I want it to start getting cooler. I hate how hot it is. Five days of 100 degree weather is too hot for me. I even have a pool to wade around in. But honestly I think I can count on my fingers when i went swimming this whole summer.

I watched a Shirley Temple movie the other day. I forgot how much those movies make me happy. They always have a moment where it makes you cry and then just when you go to ball your eye's out something good happen's and then The End. Sometime's I wish I was born in the 1940's. I love the comfort of modern technology and all of that. But I love the way people interacted. Well at least in the Pictures. I love the way they show a man treating a lady. Like walking her home, or standing up when she leave's the table. It's so romantic to me. I don't care if I sound old fashion. I love it. Love and life seem much more simpler back then. Of course I know that it probably wasn't and it's just the way the movie portray's it. But I can dream can't I?

I'm in love with an old style idea that I know is not going to come true. - This is where I'am right now.

Tat's

New tattoo's are on there way . I can not wait. It's been so long. If you have a tattoo you know this itch. As soon as you get one, 6 months later you get the itch to get another. In my case its been 2 years, I'm about due. I have two in mind. I'm not going to say what they are , I'll post pictures when i get them done.

Hey September

Happy first day of September. I cant believe its here. They have all ready started putting Halloween things out. Fall is almost here and it's my favorite time of year. Although it's beautiful in Portland. But I'am excited to see fall here in California . Even though I have lived here before I feel like it's going to be the first time.
I'm officially employed. I now work at Macy's. While I'am going to school it will be perfect. Thing's seem to be falling into place at the moment. Been really busy with school, job interviews etc.... Had a wonderful photo shoot with miss Marie last Monday. I'll post a couple sample's . Nothing else really to say. I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer weather.
