is what it says on my facebook profile. But anyone who knows me is aware of my tendency to procrastinate and graduation is no different. With wishful thinking i have changed it to 2011 - perhaps a more realistic goal. In the meantime i watch those I care about as they move on to bigger and better things (or unemployment & their parents basements).
To the J-schoolers and their respective mediums I say good riddance. I will not miss being miss-quoted and shot at unflattering angles. But i will miss you, and you, and you. As for the rest, I'm assuming you'll be around this city for a little while longer.
And the fashion girls? Who will i turn to at 4am when my last needle breaks? who will run from the labs with me in time for last call? Who will wipe away my tears in the lounge? In who's speakers will i doc my ipod?!?! For you, a tribute to my fave collections & my fave ladies (in no particular order):
to Sacha for mucho inspiration & a kindred spirit reclaiming her edge.
to Tiffany for her knowledge of who's who and the fact that she once took circus classes (which in my book makes you one of the coolest people i know)
Kim Barr for sharing values and being the sweetest ginger i'v ever met
And i have not blogged in ages, not due to lack of material but because my computer is no more. The Olympics came and went; controversy and beer drinking made more headlines than the medal runs. My personal fave being that of the Japanese snowboarder Kazuhiro Kokubo (isn't he dreamy?). The circle of which I'm part celebrated with a 'torch' relay of our own and a closing ceremony to be remembered....and there's a chipped tooth to remind me of what i can't recall. But this is the internet and that is old news.
So what's new you ask? Plenty it seems, but it might be to soon to write about it here...A weekend filled with PG13 kind of fun has left me inspired. But my heads in the clouds so I can't seem to get much done. Whats the difference between daydream and reality anyway? The other day I zoned out during a class discussion on the concept of truth in life writing. With my eyes glazed over i raised my hand and proclaimed in typical burn-out fashion, "but isn't truth relative?..." As a spiritual being having a human experience, this weeks truth is a positive and negative charge - a Gemini and Sagittarius completing a circuit - a manifestation that is blowing my mind.
