enfin's reality, pop culture

with work comes

paychecks.  with paychecks come endless coffee, new garments (but before i purchase any i want to do a closet binge), concert tickets, kitchen equipo, and of course, decadent meals for restaurant week.  so glad that i’m about to get a steady income which will support my whims and teach me how to sa-sa-save.

you have rosy cheeks

sorry i’ve taken a little break.  when i’m in classes it’s just incredibly hectic and the only thing i ever want to do is sleep, so i sleep as much as i can.  that was the issue last semester- borderline sleep deprivation, which one, makes me edgy & jumpy, two, seems to make me sick all of the time, and three is never worth the momentary feeling of accomplishment.  so now i’m getting back in the swing of things (hey it’s only taken me 20 days really…) and i’m trying to do as little as possible in order to sleep like a normal person.  i guess i should clarify in saying that i’m just not that sociable at the moment, so i’ve been enjoying my quiet afternoons reading the world’s worst novel- the house of the spirits- and finishing all of my assignments by 10pm nightly.  it’s worth it… or so i keep telling myself.

anyway, i’m sending in my submission to a play festival on monday, and at this point i’m really content with what i’ve done.  it’s been such a long time since i’ve actually finished a piece of writing- so it’s a gulp of fresh air, so to speak, and an emotion i haven’t felt in a long time- pride.

i really wish i could put forth a more thoughtful post- and perhaps i will tonight, but right now i’d rather go eat dinner, finish my work, and then watch jersey shore, because snooki is in jail and i want to see what happens.

and as a crazy surprise i have posted all sorts of film that i’ve recently developed from the fall.  buenos noches mis (mes?) amigos.

PS-let’s pray for a snowday for enfin.

i’m not the ocean

i stumbled into bed around midnight last evening, but was faced with a bad case of insomnia & didn’t end up falling asleep until 2am- & then I was woken up by my alarm at noon.  perhaps an hour later a & i made our trek up congress street to treat ourselves to brunch at local.  we sipped tea from homegrown, indulged our taste buds with huevos rancheros, and enjoyed one another’s company.  we were home by three, where i was greeted by the lovely cora! together we teamed up and baked delicious scones- which we ate with four varieties of toppings & absolutely delicious oranges.  while we waited for the scones to bake, i brewed a pot of tea, and we chatted to our heart’s content.

the black keys and andrew jackson jihad were our soundtrack for two hours, and miss A joined us in the kitchen.  after we were done talking about tattoos, crazy bitches, and our futures, miss cora departed, and i waited for a mere fifteen minutes until annie made an appearance.  for close to half an hour she updated me on the most recent occurrences- i listened intently, and then begged her to take a trip to whole foods to grab a quick dinner.  we hurried home after our terriyaki chicken rice bowl, and tuned into MTV to catch jersey shore.

(i want to make this tent- this summer)

let’s be frank here.  i don’t know why i like jersey shore- actually, i love jersey shore, yes i’m that person… maybe it’s the incessant drama, snooki’s bump, the heightened violence between girls, the GTL motto, or just the jersey way.  i don’t care what you think of me for liking trashy tv, but i do, & so it goes.

now i’m gonna go do a bit of homework, sip some coffee, draw a bath, and fight insomnia so i can get some sleep before tomorrow.
