soon enough


I'm waiting till fall convocation for my next tattoo (of a feather with script), but this is making me a tad more excited about it all. I love the placement of this, but have sort of made up my mind to have it on the inside of my arm so that the script just sort of flows down my left arm. Opinions anyone?

Rainy days....

...Make me wish I had something better to do with my time.

Today is my first day back to work, at a new job in a new place. I know it'll be great, but because it is still a new job I continue to worry that somehow I will fuck things up.

I think that because it is only for a few hours a day, and I am used to being in an office for 8.5, that I'm a little...I don't know. Anxious to find something to fill the rest of my time. Particularly because I will need to save lots and lots of money for grad school.

I'm also just, devoid of emotion at the moment. But what does instill me with one emotion, desire namely, are these Jeffrey Campbells:

I've been thinking about them for some time now, and recently saw a picture of a girl wearing them with knee socks that made me love them even more. Maybe I should bite the bullet and buy myself them for Christmas (egads that's months away and I'm already thinking about it!).

My kinda ABC books: morbid and instilling fear to small children.
No, but really. I like this. But I do not like terrifying small children.

I'm loving this look, very polished. I wish I could see more of what her bottoms look like. I'd also like my hair to be that long now. I hate the waiting game of growing out your hair.

EDIT: I just found the rest of the outfit here at Le Fashion's blog,

Loving the Miu Miu's and bag!

Crow Skull

As some of you know by now, I have a penchant for all things morbid...and that includes skeletons. I have especially become intrigued by the trend towards casting bird skulls in silver and gold. While Kelsey and I stopped at Jonathan + Olivia we checked out the jewellery and noticed a beautiful crows skull, by which artist I do not remember...a woman, perhaps starting with P? Kelsey, do you remember?

Anyway, that has started me on the hunt for a more reasonably priced necklace, that fits into my budget. Enter Etsy, et voila!

Now I just need to start making money again so that I can spring for this beautiful piece of work.

2 more sleeps

...till I am home from my trip to Ontario. Today is my first day that I have been able to just sit around and do nothing. This meant: catching up on the Trueblood season finale, reading a bit more of The Girl Who Played with Fire and in general just surfing the net. In the past week I have visited with the two cousins who are closest in age, Kels, Grandma and Uncle Jim. I have also visited Kingston to check out Queen's University, which has made me 10 times more excited to be applying for Occupational Therapy.
This weekend I got to visit my Uncle Bob and Aunt Barb along with my cousin Mike and his wife Barb and their two little kids. They kept me pretty busy this weekend. So this is why, having my cousin Angela's house to myself for a few hours is so nice! Especially because I know in a couple of more hours I will be insanely busy with two more little cousins. We have already planned a girls night with dress-up time etc. I'm sure that means letting them wear my clothing and makeup.
Ok, off to UWO to see what their campus and program looks like. More posts soon.

Today I am taking Corey to see the Cirque du Soleil's Alegria performance for his birthday. It was supposed to be a surprise, but with all the advertising around town, it eventually leaked out. Shoot. Ah well, I am sure it will be an amazing performance and I am very excited to see it all!


By now those of you who follow my blog will know that I have a huge girl-crush on Milla Jovovich, and it looks like soon I will be able to quench my desire to see another of Milla's movies. Today Resident Evil: Afterlife comes out...however the next few days are going to be so jam packed before leaving for Toronto I think that I might need to just wait. Unless Kelsey would be up for going to see it while I'm there?? Oh what a serious dilemma this is!

Skeleton Key

This is my skeleton key tattoo. The house I’ve lived in my entire life is really quite old. When I was younger my parents renovated my bedroom and pulled out the old baseboards to find a ring of skeleton keys. We discovered that each key opens a different door in the house. The key on my back opens my room. The only room I’ve known since birth.

(via likeadoll)

I like the idea of this...too bad I didn't find any old skeleton key's in my parents 1960's house. Who knows...maybe something will turn up in this old 1800's house. I like the idea of past memories and ghosts in the present.

Social Entrapment

You know what I mean. And if you don't...Allie does a good job of describing it through her hilarious written and drawn descriptions:
