Just Fiddling.

April 18, 2010 § 1 Comment

It’s been one of those days where I don’t know if I’m happy or sad, so I spent my day inside, taking naps, reading blogs, and watching “Interview With The Vampire.” I must say, it’s a great movie, but probably not one I should have watched by myself since a) I’m a huge scared-y cat and b) I had to walk down to the creepy basement of my dorm moments after having finished the movie, further heightening the effects of a). Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, and Tom Cruise were really top notch in the movie though, so I can deal with the potential nightmares I’ll be having tonight. (Sorry for the 2 AM call in advance, Marc!)

Other than that, things are great. I’m counting down the days until my boo and I are reunited once more, and I’m trying to not stress about the huge workload that is threatening to mercilessly overtake my fragile frame. Though, since I’m currently blogging in lieu of reading, I don’t know if I can rightfully complain about the latter, so I won’t.

Lately, I’ve been reading a lot more photography blogs, looking for different tips and tricks, because I think it’s so much more interesting to learn about photography from people who know and love it as opposed to reading it out of a manual. Plus, I like looking at pretty pictures and pretending I took them. Is that weird? I’m going to act like that’s not weird.

Next, I’m going to try to tackle film in the form of the Diana F+. (That’s me: starting something new before I’ve perfected something old. What can I say? I’m a go getter, move onner, go getter something newer/shinier/expensive-er.) In conjunction with that, I’m also going to stalk every office space on my campus in search of a scanner I can use so I can post said photos on this here blog o’ mine.

So, I realize this blog is apparently morphing into a photography/lifestyle blog, which is perfectly fine with me because I absolutely¬†adore photography and lifestyle blogs, but fear not: I still plan on featuring my outfits here, but I think instead of my clothes being the main course I’ll just have a lot of little appetizers. (Food analogies are always a yes.) It’s more fun for me, which means I’ll post more often, which will make the two of you who read this so. freaking. happy.

Goodnight, lovey!

David’s House

April 16, 2010 § Leave a comment

I’ve begun this little project where my goal is to try two new things a week, and volunteering at David’s House was one of those things. And I’m so glad I did it. It made my Friday even better than it already was.

Tonight I cooked dinner for the residence of David’s House with some of the members of my sorority. The story behind this place is awesomely inspiring; I recommend clicking on the link just to read it (and maybe donate).

I was the most experienced in the kitchen (frightening, I know), so I made the Chicken Parmesan, which was delicious, but the other girls put together the salad, made the pasta, and took care of dessert (also delicious). We kind of made a lot of food. It was really gratifying to see the looks of appreciation on everyone’s face.

I didn’t take many pictures of the residents because I didn’t want to be invasive, but I did get a shot of one of the cutest little girls ever, Carmela. : )

I was obsessed with this hanging light fixture. (Can I call that a chandelier?)

Carmela’s dad asked her what she wanted to do after dinner, and she said “Can we go see mommy?” Her mom is in the hospital, and she wanted to see her instead of play with toys or watch TV. It was one of the sweetest things I’ve heard in a while.

Dessert was delicious.

Also: Marc bought plane tickets today, so he’ll be visiting me in May! I’m so excited to officially have a date to circle on my calendar.

Snippets from my day

I dragged my good ol’ Nikon out from its hiding place and took a few pictures today.

A note Marc slipped into a package he sent me earlier this week.

The pearl-filled Alpha Phi martini glass on my bookcase.

Dead flowers on my roommate’s dresser.

Things I miss about home:

Marc, of course.
Oreo (also of course).
Watching the sunset in our neighborhood.
Cuddling on Sunday mornings before making breakfast.
Anxiously waiting for him to come home.
Taking Oreo to the dog park.
Going to the in-laws’ house.
Hugging after a fight.
Eating at P.F. Chang’s every other night (Mongolian beef with lo mein, yum).
Sushi Siam. Yum yum.
Cooking dinner with Marc late at night.
Spending time with Mr. Richey.
Sleeping in our bed.
Pillow fights. Tickle wars.
Aventura Mall, F21, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie.
The beach, even though we never go.
Scary Miami fashion.
Barnes & Noble after work.
Spongebob Squarepants, iCarly.
The other half of my wardrobe.
Wearing heels.
Washing dishes, grocery shopping. (I know, I know)
Marc embarrassing me in public by singing at the top of his voice for no apparent reason.
Feeling safe and loved every night while I was falling asleep.

I got sad today.

I got sad today because I started thinking about Oreo, and the fact that it’s impossible for her to live forever. I never thought Marc and I could love anything as much as we love each other, but we do. We love our puppy. What are we supposed to do when she’s no longer with us? I get teary eyed and choked up just thinking about it. We talked about it this morning on iChat, and I could feel the somberness traveling through the inter-webs.

Don’t leave us, Oreo. Okay? We’re not a family without you.

Instead of reading…

Things that are making me happy today:

Talking to Marc all day on iChat.

Wearing red lipstick for the first time — with confidence.

Dinner tonight with a new friend. : )

Actually looking forward to doing my reading for tomorrow.

Cardi - H&M; Top - Gap; Skirt - F21; Tights - Hue; Necklace - LOFT

Sorry for all the pictures. : D I went a little crazy today with the Nikon.

I missed blogging a lot, so maybe that has something to do with it to.

Still waiting to get that tripod…

Red lips in class.

I sit in the back so I can take photos with photobooth…

I love my red lips.

That last one is for you, Marc.

Where Am I?
