A traditional Dia de los Muertos skull I bought on the trip.
Ps. I really miss summer. Specifically; riding my babe bike Genevieve, beverages while biking, patio lounging, night life, sangria, dresses, sunnies, bare legs, etc etc.
See you around,
Meghan agrees this is the phrase for my trip.
Yesterday I arrived in Cancun, not as many mustaches as I had expected. I sadly admit though that I was somewhat envious of all the women who received a rose from their main squeeze for V-day. -Whatever. I on the other hand found happiness while cracking open a Corona and sitting on the beach. The fam and I went for a lovely oceanside dinner the Palapa but due to jetlag (or maybe a few too many Coronas) I retired to my room at..6:30 pm.
I spent the day at the beach studying Biochem, getting destroyed by waves, and inspecting sand crabs on the beach. I swear my animal physiology class has left me too intrigued with nature and animals that I feel i must 'inspect' all interesting things I come across these days.
Well, I'm too sleepy to write and it's almost time for dinner soooo see ya!
Ps. I think I'm taking sailing lessons tomorrow, yep!
She has a bowl of lilacs in her room
And twists one in her fingers while she talks.
"Ah, my friend, you do not know, you do not know
What life is, you who hold it in your hands”";
(Slowly twisting the lilac stalks)
"You let it flow from you, you let it flow,
And youth is cruel, and has no remorse
And smiles at situations which it cannot see.”
"I smile, of course,And go on drinking tea.“
"Yet with these April sunsets, that somehow recall
My buried life, and Paris in the Spring,
I feel immeasurably at peace, and find the world
To be wonderful and youthful, after all.”"
from Portrait of a Lady by T.S. Eliot
Anyways, I haven't quite decided which form this blog will take, it was originally meant to be a fashion blog (suprise suprise) but I'm not really sold on this idea these days. I imagine it will be a bit of everything I have on my mind on the daily, at least for now.
Lately I've been thinking a lot about friendships and events that have occured over the past year. I've been laying low since the end of summer and haven't really been interested much in partying or the awkward small talk you have with people that you see out almost every weekend but aren't really friends with. I've made some really rad friends over this hibernation period (?) and feel really lucky to have met these people. I guess I don't really know what else to say about it, unless you've met them then you'd know how awesome they are.
I'm going to go to bed but this video is funny. Courtesy of Aimee ( my biggest girl crush right now) and her serious giggles over this creature:
Ps. I have these two glass sculptures of a boy and a girl sitting on top of my mirror and today the girl came crashing down and shattered. I'm pretty bummed about it to say the least.
