ahhh. shut up, you’re such a jet-setter. i didn’t think that was a title i could ever hold, but it seems as though i’ve been adorned with the label for the remainder of the season. CLASSES ARE OVER. i’m so elated, and incredible tired, yet so ready for the upcoming excursions ahead of me. i leave tomorrow for dc, where i’ll remain for a fortnight, and then, when i come back i will have two weeks to myself to finish four books and be content in portland, and perhaps go camping for an evening or two. then it’s time to help save the ocean for a month, where i will, in essence, be out of communication for a chunk of time (but not the entire time, mind you!) when i’m done saving the ocean (july 30th)Β i have seven days until i’m flying 14hrs to Korea for two weeks. it’s insane to think that i will be out of portland for the majority of the summer, and rather sad too. but i’d much rather be doing all these things than sitting around on the mother-effing monument drinking my fair-trade iced coffee… cos i can do that anyday.

im really hoping that things don’t get complicated this summer. i don’t want/need/yearn for any sort of drama, and i don’t want to get involved with anyone. it’s actually the truth, which is rare for me to openly admit, but i’m so content with where i’m at and i don’t want it any other way. yesternight was rather cool, it started with joining isaac at the art museum, which i do have to say, was a visit long over due, and then we headed to street & co., where we gorged ourselves in their delectable fare. the panicotta with black currants was just about the best thing i’ve had to eat in a really long time.Β  miss m is missed dearly by enfin, but i hope she’s having the best time in europe (because if i were her, i’d be at les cafes oΓΉ je vais fumer des cigarettes et boire du vin rouge).Β  i need to head up to photoshops and buy some 400s film, which isn’t tri-x because as i’ve recently discovered, tri-x and i don’t get along like carrots and peas. whatta shame. gonna go finish my almond soy milk, take a walk, and work 12-8. long night ahead of me to accompany my busy day schedule. oh la la, what it’s like to be enfin!

i have one final left and then i’m done with classes for a while. this week has been quite pleasant, farmer’s market, half off at salvation army, 10pm dinner with m, adventures with les hommes, insane kittens, almond soy milk, tatz, & half sunny half rainy weather. i took a long nap this afternoon and have been tired ever since. my film came out quite nice, and i’m trying to scan the negatives, but that’s not going too well as of now. i’m taking tomorrow as it comes- hopefully i’ll busy myself tomorrow after 11, and then in the late evening dinner at street&co. my watercolour is finished, and i have to bring home my entire portfolio tomorrow- thankfully there’s only 4 months worth of pieces inside, so i won’t be weighed down by 9 months of artwork. weekend is absolutely overwhelming. working noon to eight on saturday, then making the rounds intown to my heart’s content, and sunday flying from portland to dc at noon. m is on her flight to london currently, where she’ll be stationed for the next two weeks. i’m making a dent in reading, a bit of hemingway and marquez, and i’m prepping for the upcoming summer. 1318713930_c3bbf5fba0_large

guidelines

8 glasses of water (aqua)Β per day
3 cups of tea per day
2 cups of unsweetend almond soy milk per day
3 cups of coffee per week
4 glasses of wine per week

only in season legumes and fruits and homegrown herbs. i’m aiming for a complete detox so i will feel rather nice about myself come august. my cats have kept me nice company for the past few days, although i do have to admit, trout is really starting to smell…bad. i don’t even know how to deal with that, but she really smells. a trip to timelag & strange maine is in order for tomorrow. crossing my fingers for golden sunshine and a walk on the western prom.

the magnetic fields need to chill out a while, so i can stop listening to them ‘cos they’re my good gods. like bob dylan, they’re narrating my life. miss bela stole me away today and we engaged in gluttony…. consuming fries, blood red orange sorbetto, chocolate cake with chili pepper and coffee frosting, and mac & cheese.Β  we did not have the munchies mind you.Β  and we’re planning on seeing prince of persia tomorrow and then off we shall go to a photo excursion.Β  then i’m celebrating the end of the year at local with a over dinner and drinks and dessert.Β  off i will head to washington dc on june 13th! i’m looking forward to it as well as sos and hopefully skor.Β  we’ll find out soon. saturday: expecting visitors! brother cole and made brandi are coming down to celebrate summer and tests and stressful weeks ahead.Β  sunday i believe i will be headed to a wonderful yard sale and then i’m working 5-11.Β  driving to higgins monday where we’ll eat strawberries, indulge in the sunshine, drink some wine, and let loose.Β  thank mon dieu for giving me the break i deserve.Β  i’m developing tuesday, from 2-5 and then off to local for jazz, wednesday i’m scouring the farmers market and going on a picnic with miss lily who i haven’t seen/heard from in ages! the end of the year is certainly shaping up, thus i can’t help be anything but jubilant! ooers, thank the heavens for summertime. (cue sublime and l’s).
