During the last few days of this past summer, Gaby and I decided to paint her senior parking spot, something which I’ve always wanted to do and have vicariously lived out through her. I’ve described this once before, but am finally getting around to actually posting a photo of the final result of the effort.
Also I am learning that you shouldn’t be afraid or intimidated to talk to someone, as chances are that they are just as dorky as you are and are willing to converse with you. So that’s pretty neat.
Introspecting the night away. Can you feel homesick for a person?

A much needed break from everything happened this weekend with these amazing humans. Oh and I’m the dorky looking one in the dress.We paired up and carved pumpkins (I collab-ed with a friend for the Pikachu one). Beside Pikachu is the work of magnificent Anita (the cutie in the purple cardigan). Lots of giggles and fun times took place.
PS: Can you spot the wild baby ladybug human-ling prancing about in the background?
Modern Vampires of the City inspired concert outfit. I may or may not have been planning this for a few months.
*~iPhone koala-ty~* because security made put away my camera. Last night was Vampire Weekend, intense fan-girling, and late night ice cream. Oh and now, heavy post concert depression. Vampire Weekend easily gave one of the best performances I’ve ever seen with amazing vocals, along with a great sync between the rhythm and lighting. Also, catching a glimpse of Ezra, Rostam, Chris, and CT and greeting them after the concert was the perfect way to end the night.

Around the RISD campus. It surpassed all of the expectations that I’ve developed since freshman year, and had a comfortable balance between urban and suburban, nestled in Providence, Rhode Island. Fun facts: 1. Student housing options include “hill homes”, which are revamped Victorian manors from the 1800s complete with vintage floral wallpaper, intricate crown molding, and fireplaces in bedrooms. 2. The roommate compatibility form includes a section to list preferred music tastes. 3. The illustration studies building is being renovated - it’s a sign.

Feeling very road trip-y and and wanting to hum along subtly today. I miss wandering around the east coast with a camera around my neck and a little paisley print rucksack on my shoulders, that comfortably held my sketchbook and a few tourist-y things inside. There was always something that needed to be photographed.
So I FINALLY finished my senior overalls! Senior overalls are made by senior girls every year in my town as per some tradition I have yet to understand the origins of. Anyways, they are usually crafted using a school spirited color scheme of red, black and white and worn on the days of home football games. I wanted to give mine a personal vibe and ended up painting them with things that are pertinent to me. The back side has more of a vintage flair to it with the lace, floral patterns, and polka dots, which I think parallels my style.
Various bodies of water that I saw during my family trip to the east coast (mostly for college visits, but also for seeing family). I visited a total of five states: Massachussetts, Rhode Island, New York, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, as well as Washington, DC. More photos and “adventures” to come!
I am helping my friend, Gaby, paint her senior parking spot tomorrow. We are going to paint the House Stark sigil (from Game of Thrones) onto the spot, which we will shaped to resemble a banner. It will also be painted with the words, “________ is coming”. We plan on changing the phrase every few weeks in correlation to upcoming occasions and events such as winter break and graduation - i.e: the first one shall say “Senior year is coming”. We like to think we’re clever. Oh wait, we are.
I found out that one of my closest friends, Nathan, (whom I’ve known since the seventh grade, when he moved here) will be moving to another state earlier this week. So we spent a day crossing off a few things on an imaginary bucket list - including eating at an Indian Restaurant (while I guided him with the food). The rest of the time was spent reflecting upon good times we’ve been able to share as well as plans for our futures. It is very comforting to know that I will be able to keep in touch with him through vehicles of communication like calling, texting, and Facetime-ing. I’d like to think that this parting may in a way be preparation for next year, when I’ll be leaving for college - meaning many many more goodbyes are to be expected. Regardless, I’m so glad that I’ve had the chance to get to know him over the years and experience what made him such an interesting character, talented artist, and above all - a wonderful friend. I wish him the best of luck on all of his future endeavors.
I will also miss the everyday presence of Nathan’s puns including “Let Sreedom ring!" and "Sree what I did there?" very much, despite how lame they are.
