they just tell you that you're on your own

lately i've been feeling like i'm barely holding up the weight of everything that needs to get done (lala)
that all i can do is wait (lala)
but i'm stuck in the same uncomfortable position (filthy lust)
and i just can't let go (?)
i feel alone a lot (lola news)
but that's not such a bad thing (drifter and the gypsy)
being alone can be rather nice sometimes (drifter and the gypsy)
besides, i can never really be alone (lala)
when i know that the end of my stress will be over very soon (lola news)
and i have so many great friends to thank (lala)
for just being there (le love)
still... (lala)
it would be nice to just fly away right now (lala)

or get all dolled up (filthy lust)
and just go out dancing, and have the time of my life (found).

these gorgeous works of art are done by Sandi Petrie who goes to Cleveland Institute of Art.  I saw her working in her studio while on a tour and just had to tell her how amazing her work is.

marilyn at solid gold tagged me!  thank you so much dear.  :)

i would like to tag anya at oui je suis mostly because she is just so darn cute!

you're stuck in a rut

got back from cleveland today!  it was such a great trip.  i really like the city.  i really like the school.  and i still have no idea where i am going to college.  eeeeeek!

some cool art outside of CIA

these are actually from the urban outfitters in durham.  i just really liked the new set they had.

the architecture in cleveland was amazing.  so diverse.
this was our super sweet hotel. 

we went to a really cool indoor market.  everything was so bright and colorful.

biggest jar of nutella ever.


a cool art project done by elementary school kids in the 80's.

today before our flight we spent some time in the botanical gardens.  gorgeous!

this poor dear was in a little cage... :(  but sooooo pretty.

a chocolate tree!
the rents standing under this crazy root tree.

my favorite vintage sunglasses and new top from urban.

we played catch phrase!

this last group was taken by my dear friend sophie (unless she is in them of course) on our last early release wednesday.  it was an absolutely blissful day in the sun.
