a little something

I found this meme over at Chocolate and Steel, and even though I'm not tagged, I felt like filling it out, in an effort to let you get to know a little more about the person behind this blog you're reading.

What is your current obsession?

My current obsession is photography. Specifically, TtV photography. I just got my Kodak Brownie in the mail, and I've been trying to figure out the best way to build a contraption. It's not easy. But I can't wait to get it figured out and start shooting!

What is your weirdest obsession?

My weirdest...hmm....I guess I'll have to judge "weirdness" based on how much it doesn't seem to fit my personality, and in that case the weirdest would be my obsession with Gossip Girl. It's totally not something I would seem to like, but I started watching it mondays out of boredom and now I'm obsessed.

What are you wearing today?

Today is supposed to be really warm, so I decided to wear a teal tank top, khaki skirt, and tan leather peep-toe, slingback wedges.

What's for dinner?

That depends on whether I'll be eating with boyfriend or not. If it's just me, I'll probably throw a Weight Watchers Smart One in the microwave. If we're eating together...I have no idea.

What would you eat for your last meal?

This is TOUGH! I'd have to have spicy salmon roll from sushi house, the baltimore roll from Ichiban, Ginger ale, and a piece of chocolate cake from the Cheesecake Factory.

What's the last thing you bought?

Yesterday I bought a Macro lens on ebay.

What are you listening to right now?

I can barely hear anything over the fan in the office, but I'm listening to the live stream at because they have boyfriend's band scheduled on the playlist today!

What is your favorite ice-cream flavour?
This is tough too! I'm going to have to go with Mint Chocolate Chip....though Phish Food is a close second.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?

These questions just get harder and harder. I would REALLY like to live somewhere with easy Beach specific destination. But at the same time, I really miss Brooklyn, and how AWESOME would it be to have a fully paid for, fully furnished home in Williamsburg? Right near McCarren Park? Oh dreams...

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

I would go to Martha's Vineyard. This is the perfect time to be there, the weather is nice, but it's before the 4th, so there aren't as many tourists as peak season. I'd go hang out at Gayhead Beach.

What is your favorite colour?

I lean towards oranges and reds

Which language do you want to learn?

I know a little spanish, but I would love to be fluent.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?

Probably my navy and white dress that I got from Target. It's so comfortable, and I feel so pretty in it.

What's your favourite magazine?

It's a tie between Ready Made and Juxtapoz.

If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?

Some new clothes...I'm hurting for some new threads...

Favorite artist/s?

Andrew Schoultz


Shepard Fairey

Mark Ryden

Camille Rose Garcia


What's your favorite season and why?

Fall is my favorite. I love the vibrant colors, the crisp air, the pumpkins, halloween!! Love it!

Describe your personal style?
Lazy and inept. I wish that I could be a little better at putting outfits together, but I always feel like the little girl who goes through mom's closet and doesn't really know what to put with what...

What are you going to do after this?

Lunch break in an hour! Go home, eat, see los gatos.

What are your favourite movies?

Anything by Wes Anderson, The Big Lebowski, Zoolander, Drop Dead Fred, The Notebook, Trainspotting, The Sandlot!

What's your favourite fruit?


What inspires you?

All of the wonderful creative things I find on etsy and in blogs every day. You all inspire me!

What music do you like this week?

This week I'm going through a phase with The Shins. And I'm excited to be hearing the progess of the new Severe Severe (stay tuned, you'll get to hear it soon!!)

What is your dream job?

Not having a day job, but being able to live off of the things that I create.

What is stopping you?

The debt I incurred getting my degrees - all paid for with loans....let's just say I have enough student loans to equal a mortage on a pretty nice house...I can't afford to take a leap of faith.

If you could change something in the world to make it a better place what would that be?

I would increase the levels of communication to promote peace, understanding, and tolerance.

What do you have planned for tomorrow?

Work 10-7, go to the gym, and whatever else happens along the way!

Where do you want to be in 5 years?

This question ALWAYS trips me up in job interviews. I don't have a 5 year plan, because I see my financial state as so dire that I can't plan further than the next month...but in 5 years I hope to have a better paying job that will afford me a little more flexibility financially, and I hope by then we will at least be in the process of having our own house.

The rules :
1. Respond and rework; answer the question on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag five other people.
