i'm so sorry to say i did not end up getting the internship i had mentioned a few weeks ago. But instead of feeling sorry for myself, & wasting time questioning my dreams, i'm going to continue to stand tall, ready to show the world what i am capable of.
But once the world is ready, of course.

Until then,
i will continue to try and accept the path which is set for me.

Sticks & Stones.

sticks & stones may break my bones,
but words will never hurt me...{via:aubreyhepburncomplex.}
{however, they may make me feel incredibly inadequate & ruin my night. along with make myself question every aspect of my being.}

An Ode to Conan.

today Late Night with Conan O'brien will tape its last show. : (
but, no worries. Conan's {cute} face will be back in June to take over Jay Leno's spot on The Tonight Show, (thank heavens.) at the 10:30pm spot. (here in central time.)

i can say i have watched Conan since i can remember, & many {hilarious memories} have come from his {shenanigans}. My cousins Geoff & Jon & I always recapped what we had seen the night before on Conan at the bus stop. Not to mention, one of us, ahem, jon, managed to miss the bus while we were all too wrapped up in reenacting a skit & lost track of time.

so here's to Late Night with Conan O'brien.
be sure to watch the last show tonight!!
here's a little bit of my favorite Conan segments...

the "other bears Sarah Palin shoots" series.

{and one of my personal favorites, Conan's realization that he resembles the president of Finland Tarja Kaarina Halonen}
check out NBC to see other hilarious things Conan has done over the past 16 years.
& definitely watch him tonight!! {& in june!}
{hooray} for Conan! : )

"I noticed a feeling awake in my heart, the moment my eyes turned to you."

-the waiting is over by eva cassidy.

i love spring- the flowers, the crisp air, the couples walking down the city sidewalks holding hands...oh, how i love spring.
& one of the best things about spring??
most weddings happen in the summer, but most invitations & save the dates arrive in spring-
oh, how i love getting announcements of {Love}.
just the other day i squealed with excitement when i thumbed through the mail & found this...
{via: rachel.}
My brother's good friends, whom quickly became some of my favorites, Alex & Becca sent out these darling postcards announcing that they are engaged! So wonderful, so exciting!!

i love {spring} & i love {weddings}.

oh, & i love eva cassidy.{via: jonilynphotography.}
i think this song would be perfect for a {first dance}...

i'm gonna make a mental note of that. ;)
hooray for spring, hooray for love!

Just a moment while i climb up onto my Soapbox...

{i have a ridiculous sinus infection right now which feels as though i have molasses in my sinus passageways, so i'll give you a synopsis of whats irking me lately...}

1. i started wearing glasses when i was three years old...
(see photo below)
and have gone through approximately 8 pairs...
multiply that number by 2,000 & you will get the number of times i've been asked/told:
a) "have you ever tried contacts?"
b) "why don't you try contacts?"
c) "you should
so get contacts."
d) "let me see what you look like
without your glasses! look so good WITHOUT your glasses! don't wear them tonight!
& every time i've responded with:
a) no, & i do not want to... i feel naked without them & you are a lying piece of crap i look like a freak without my glasses, & i'm not fishing for a compliment.--i honestly look like a weirdo without i like to be able to see. i'm a little befuddled by the recent surge in popularity of the spectacles.
don't get
me wrong, i love that people are jumping on this sight-impaired bandwagon, but i do not get why people do this
(glasses frames, NO LENSES.)
(see photo below)

i'm so confused. i understand that some people only wear their glasses when they "just were too tired" in the morning to put in their contacts, or they "only need them 10% of time", (ie. when they are not in public.) but really, i don't like this whole "its cool to be a nerd" thing. OF COURSE its cool to be a nerd, always has been in my book. But here's a word of advice, at least buy frames from Claire's or something, at least they have fake lenses included.


p.s. being a nerd isn't something you become, its something you are blessed with.
p.p.s. i really really really want thicker frames like the ones in the photo above. they are darling...with lenses.

Spring Fever...

with the {beautiful} weather we've had, & the fact i am sleeping with my window cracked open, listening to the whistling wind sneak in my room, i have been feeling "the itch"...
"the itch": a feeling of need for change in wardrobe.
{out with the sweaters, in with the tee's & bermudas...}
but knowing this burst of sunshine and warm 50degree weather will most likely disappear before morning, i must satisfy my longing for warm-weather clothing by vicariously living through the wonderful world of online shopping.

the cures for "my itch"...




le fashion.

banana republic.


ah, much better. : ) goodnight to all.
