old time cuties

a few days ago, my friends asked me what kind of guys i was interested; after that, i kept thinking of cute guys and went on a hot guy search frenzy (i promise i not normally that creepy). ;) thus, i thought i'd compile pictures of some of my favorite old & new time celebrity cuties. i'm definitely missing some, but here are just a few (in no particular order)! :)

Leonardo DiCaprio

Christian Bale




Hugh Jackman


Ben Affleck


James Marsden


Jude Law


Edward Furlong (do you recognize him as John from Terminator 2?) :)




James Dean



Warren Beatty


Paul Newman


Robert Redford




Clint Eastwood




Steve McQueen



(that lady is very pretty too. and the other picture with the car, i just thought it was a hot pic) :)


and here's a fun picture of kevin bacon:

a vicious cycle


My mom's like a best friend that I've never had and never will have. I can be myself and I don't have to hide anything. We have such similar personalities that everything just clicks. But that's the problem. When a small misunderstanding sparks, then everything goes berserk.

So we'll have a our high times as we watch old, classy movies together and laugh our butts off watching America's Funniest Home Videos and critique ice skaters as we watch reruns of the Winter Olympics Figure Skating, but then I say something a little askew, and then my mom's like what? and I'm like what?!?!?! and then everything's like WHAT?!?!??!!?!!?!?!?!?$@%#%

You could say that our relationship is like American economy (at least US economy according to my AP US History teacher). Apparently, our economy has its amazing highs and then crashes tremendously like in the Depression of the 20s. Then things are amazing-er than before! And then, things are stinkier than before. The cycle goes on until the crash is too big to handle, and I feel like that's going to happen sometime soon between my mom and me... I don't know what to do.



I got frustrated, so I started journalling which then became poetry...


1.
I'm left here in a flourishing cage with my mom.
A blessing and a curse.

I can't tell if it's for better or for worse.


When life is good,
I feel like I'm free
only to find myself in disgusting symmetry.


I see my mom;
we laugh, we joke

and then we brawl and fight when we really shouldn't have.


I hate it.
I want it over.

but what can i do?

I'm so human,

I'm so distraught.

I'm tied to this cycle like glue.


I know it's gonna happen again,
it's just the way we are...

but I don't want to lose my mom.

my friend, that twinkling star.


I sit, in lonely disarray,
anger getting the best of me.

she sits in the next room,
heated tension burning our symmetry.

now there's no more laughs.
goodbye friend.
goodbye love.
I wish someone would stop me from anger,

I just have to wait and wait and wait

and pray to the one above.



2.
I want to break through
this mess
and find that
waiting fullness.
but I don't know where you are.

I

keep falling

making

crumbling under those same mistakes.



3.
I want to make things right,

but I don't want to be wrong.


I want this friendship to last forever,

but both of us aren't that strong.


I want Jesus to come
and say
"It is finished"
but until then
we are gone, baby, gone.



i don't wanna think anymore

thanks to Gus & Other Things, I discovered Pomplamoose, one of those self made band kind of people that do covers of songs, if y'know what i'm saying. anyway, here are some of my favorites. :)


Lady Gaga - Telephone

video



Earth Wind & Fire - September

(I love the puppet and the old lady and the clapping)

this little light of mine

lundlund.com has some of the most intriguing and beautiful photos i have seen. they're mostly fashion photos for artsy magazines and if you have free time, it's definitely worthwhile to browse around for inspiration.

these pics are from sandra freij's photos for MILK magazine (French children's fashion magazine?):




(the next Justin Biebers?)



and this photo is just creepy: (but i thought i'd share it with you anyway) ;)


Now that's the real old wise man..

song of the moment
Cold Hard Bitch - JET (i'm not a swearer, but it's a fun song. :D)

hoo am i?

My friend, who prefers to name anonymous, writes these beautiful poems and I thought I'd share his latest one with you:

many stories I've told you
several secrets I've shown
I'm trying hard to let you in
I don't want to go it alone

I've been waiting quite a while now
for you to come by my side
but it seems you're not that interested
in what I have to hide

so I continue down this lonely road
I wonder if I'll last...
sometimes I think I'm making way
but I'm going nowhere fast

in life we strive to find ourselves
and make a home someplace
Who am I? Where do I belong?
I dont. I'm just a face.



My favorite part is the 3rd stanza - brilliant. :)


& I finally got a chance to wear my beautiful new necklace from Anthropologie that I won from one of My Owl Barn's lovely giveaways. I can't thank her enough for the fabulous necklace. I got so many compliments that day and I can't wait to wear it more! :)





Thank you My Owl Barn! :)




cardigan - Anthropologie
skirt - Papaya
leggings - American Eagle


i hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. :)

splatter that paint

I came across this inspiring music video the other day. (More than the music, I just love the video). My favorite scenes are 1:45-2:00 (awesome colors!), 2:25 (it feels like one of those 4D arcade rides), 3:20 (the falling umbrellas & paper planes), and of course 3:30 (the paint). :)

Ok Go - This Too Shall Pass





These pastels make me crave for spring.. and some bubblegum candy! :)

I'm a little late about the St. Patty's Day green, but here are some words to the wise that are handy all year round:
