labyrinth of life


Hint: you won't. Not that it's a bad thing. These past nearly 2 weeks have been pretty consistently happy, productive, and exciting. I somehow got out of a little slump and into a happier place, but I'm not sure what caused me to get out of the slump! I think something just clicked in my head - stop trying to get everything done, constantly living in the future, disliking whatever task I'm working on at the time. I'm doing this grad school thing and I'm learning more than I ever expected, especially in such a short amount of time. And I get to do things I love, be around cool artists all the time, and make money at the same time. I'll take it! No need to get me out of this labyrinth just yet - I'm enjoying the crazy things I'm finding along the way. 

And if I do still have a rough day for some reason, I can just look at this picture Austin drew of himself on the Valentine's Day card he gave me:


Pretty awesome.

cocktail party

My friend Melissa made this video at her house this past December. It was super fun. Check it out:

very cool - no pun intended

It's true - Austin and I booked flights to Iceland for vacation in July.  Insane, right!?  


We've been eyeing the country for quite some time and I got so excited when I clicked "purchase" this afternoon I really thought I might pee my pants.  We have saved up thousands of credit card points for years and so we basically got one ticket plus some for free.  

Some things I'm excited about:
- whale watching
- the blue lagoon
- 20 hours of daylight
- the northern lights (possibly)
- puffins
- Reykjavik
- beautiful landscapes

eat rocks

This past week I received a link to photos of a culminating project concert I was in last November.  We ate rocks - you know, nothing out of the ordinary... 

 



Ok, we didn't actually eat rocks.  But we danced with them and put them in our mouths... and we liked to think a certain part of the music said "eat rocks" ...

new girl

Does anyone watch New Girl?  If you don't, you should.  You're missin' out.  

Last week this happened:


I'd been waiting far too long for this, and so had all the other viewers.  I just didn't think it would actually happen - it was an actual surprise!  I'm not gonna lie - I had to rewind to watch it again I was so happy.  Then, I found this online:


Clever people.  

Why do I love creeping in on fictional worlds so much?  Maybe I just like to escape the reality of grad school sometimes and put my own world aside.  Whatever the reason, I love me some TV.

My other go-to TV shows when in season:
Downton Abbey
Modern Family
Big Bang Theory
The Office
Parenthood
Game of Thrones

Enjoy relishing in your favorite television shows...
