enfin's reality, music

surprise! this past weekend was wunderbar.  yes… back to my native tongue! it’s funny how quickly you can fall out of habit, but then, as if nothing happened, return to it as quickly as you fell out!

for starters- i hate fourth of july.  i always have, and i always will, and i suppose there are a few reasons behind this hatred.  one: i am not patriotic by any means.  surely, i do love living in the united states- solely because of freedom- and yes, generally i wouldn’t say that, because i feel as though some rights are most definitely hindered, but, today i am saying that.  two: drunks on the eastern promenade are not the sort of people i like sitting next to, while having them regurgitate on my blanket.  three: i’m not too big on fireworks- in fact, the only reason i watch them, is to hear them.  four: i think the color combination, red white and blue is rather tragic, and i hate seeing it plastered all over everyone who makes a big deal out of the frikin’ fourth of july.  five: i prefer bastille day.  to hell with america, vive la france!

but let’s back up.  today was unexpectedly grand.  trips to the beach with healthy vegetation, books galore, the clash & family.  not to mention miraculously warm waters to swim in, and even warmer temperatures and endless sunshine.  all this followed by a mid evening excursion to el rayo- which i initially protested, but now, after experiencing the dining, i have clearly changed my mind.  so fresh, so clean, so delicious, so divine.  i was rather pleased with el rayo- hence this.  dancing in the ghetto with sparklers and watching the fireworks from the roof was a nice night cap, and now i ready myself to sleep, just so i can awake, ride to the corporate sell-out spot, and then take another trip to the beach again.  rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat.  so much fun, so happy it’s summertime.  it seems as if all my film keeps disappearing.  gone through 5 rolls this week- everything is adding up, and there is no ending in sight.  oceanic adventure beginning in one day.  what can i say? i’m looking forward to it, for both selfish reasons and reasons of pure selflessness (if that even existed).

i’ll eventually post a new mixtape for summer (i’m getting lazy, yet i’m balancing two blogs, and going on holidays often).  i’ll also try and scan some photos and get them posted too.  there is some sort of surprise in store regarding a revolutionary idea to re-amp a wonderful thing that portland is probably missing- and i plan on makin’ some creme brulee soon- so someone better buy me a blowtorch.  no more green for quite some time, and just because i thought of that, let’s chew on this- i hate pbr.  eff off hipster culture and cry me the nile.

postscriptum: i’ve had two very cute waiters this past week, hmm… oh yeah, jack johnson never changes, and i’ve decided that’s a wonderful thing! oh and to add to the local natives video featured up top- if you haven’t listened to gorilla manor, YOU MUST.

i’m about to embark on finals in a mere fourteen hours, and i’m lacking the preparation i should have.  too bad i plan not to study for the remainder of this week, besides a few key elements tomorrow evening (the only night i plan to work). its so sunny and joyous and overwhelming, that i don’t see why i ought to spend my time cooped up inside reading. i’d rather go find friends and play frisbee and enjoy the graass, and take walks on the promenades.

today i took a wonderful afternoon nap, after i downed a thirty ounce fair trade iced coffee and watched the cooking network.  i’m about to head up to sillys for my last dinner with A until two weeks from now, and then i’m gonna go shoot a roll of film, read huck finn, go grocery shopping, and take a nice cold bath.  after my one final tomorrow, i’m darkroom processing for a good chunk a’ time, and then chatting with an advisor and getting more organic coffee to soothe the soul.  evening is a night filled with brain-racking work- mathematic equations followed by reviews of english lit that i could careless about. i’m with m wednesday, and we’re going to the market and making dinner and listening to music and dancing and never sleeping. i have to finish a water colour by thursday, so i can get it pressed and copied by friday, and then as of 11:15 am vendredi morning, i am liberated and content and so divine, the day couldn’t be more dynamic. off to dc sunday, ooh la la, so excited… not really. i’m ready for a relaxing week in portland, but to be honest, i don’t think i’ll have many of those this upcoming season. mr i and myself are goin’ to street & co to celebrate- reservation @ 8 on friday, and then i plan on havin’ a good time.

postscriptum: this past weekend was rather great! i visited with my dear friend sean, and we watched 10 things i hate about you while eating our baguettes et croissants and then we listened to bob dyl on vinyl while watching the rain in the comfort of my room. oh to being young, and artsy!
