i squashed a really big ant against my wall yesterday evening
i left him there , partly out of laziness, partly out of ew.

so i made him into wall art

\he's actually not so bad.

yesterday my sister, carla & i tried out the slip-n-slide for my Going Away party on Tuesday.
SUCCESS. it was so hilarious.
we didn't really know what we were doing.
so we covered the tarps in water and olive oil.

just stumbled acorss something brilliant

look at this blog : tinyhaus.blogspot
absolutely in love with that blog right now.
the creativity people possess seriously astounds me.

it makes me want to pick up a crayon just to try it. but i know it will be super difficult to do what she does.. she makes it look so easy! i love it. i love sharing wonderful things like this with everyone. i hope it gives everyone a little tingle of excitement like it did for me.

Some Advice for everyone:

#10 - For the most part, what others think doesn’t matter. : the times when someone else’s opinion of you truly matters are few and far between. Think first impressions, like meeting your significant other’s family, meeting a new client, or meeting a potential employer for a job interview. Don’t let other people rent space in your head. What they think of you isn’t important. What matters most is how you feel about yourself.
#9 - Explore new hobbies and opportunities often. : I try new things as they come up, whether it’s a new restaurant, a new beer, or a new pastime. When you try new things, you discover more and more things that you enjoy.
#8 - Nobody knows what you’re thinking unless you tell them. : People can’t read your mind. This goes for your significant other, your employer, and that hot girl you’re too scared to talk to. Relationships can’t improve unless you communicate.
#7 - Talk to everyone in college. : College is the best opportunity you’ll ever have to build a complex, varied network of smart people. Use it to your advantage and get your name out there, because grades mean nothing in the real world.
#6 - Leave every job on good terms. : Giving up all opportunities for future recommendations for one fleeting moment to tell your employer what you really think about them is a bad trade. Give two weeks notice, and say thanks for the opportunity to work with them — even if it’s bullshit.
#5 - Pay your dues. : Stick to it. Hopping from company to company looking for something “better” may allow you to get ahead in the short-term, but in the long-term your resume will become a mishmash of temporary stints that makes you look like a quitter. In the end, persistence creates an impression of dedication and relevant experience — and it will outshine any other attribute, every time.
#4 - Invest in yourself. : When you invest in yourself you can never lose. This applies to everything: Learn to cook. You’ll save a bajillion dollars on food in your lifetime. Learn a foreign language. You’ll expand your horizons and be easily employable. Learn to spend less than you earn. You’ll never be broke.
#3 - You can’t change anything by just sitting back and looking at it. : Change requires two things: a conscious decision to accomplish something, and follow-through. If you want something accomplished, then do it now. If it can’t be done now, then do it today. If it can’t be done today, then start it today. Change is tough, but the most difficult step is getting started. Of course once you’ve actually started, the most difficult step is following through. Change is tricky like that — but know that if you truly want it, you’ll find a way to create change in your life.
#2 - Expect people to be negative, especially if you’re carving your own path. : In all walks of life, you won’t see eye-to-eye with everyone. People will come out of the woodwork to tell you that you’ll fail, tell you that you suck, laugh at you, argue with you, call you names, write you messages laced with profanity, and be altogether unpleasant. As Tony Gazzo from Rocky put it, “Some guys, they just hate for no reason.” The thing is, although it’s common to receive negativity from strangers, you’ll find that even the people you know and love can surprise you with negative attitudes. No matter who it is that’s trying to boo you off the stage, don’t let them succeed in doing so.
#1 - Do what you are. : We’ve all heard that ”If you love what you do, you will never work another day in your life.” The problem is that few people seem to actually have this luxury. It seems that somewhere along the line the consensus changed to “If you do what you need to do, when you need to do it, then maybe someday you can do what you want to do, when you want to do it.” You end up spending the majority of your life waiting for that someday to arrive. I’d tell myself that the right choice is much simpler: Do what you are. As long as you’re true to yourself, and follow your own interests, you can find success through passion.

i wish i could put certain moments , smells , sights or feelings into a jar to save for later. to show people who couldnt see, smell, see or feel what i did. just a simple glass jar/... to bottle things up in and put on a shelf for later.
i suppose that's what the mind is for. all i need is a projector screen for it. or something.
