I Love Lamp

22 Jun

My friend Anne Marie has this totally cool lamp. And I happen to love it.

I own nothing this cool. But I have a camera that captures my friend’s cool stuff. So it’s OK.


Love for Adulthood

13 Sep

I’m trying really hard to actually believe in the title of this post. But when you’ve been having first-day-of-school jitters, buying textbooks, figuring out a class schedule, and getting so excited to see all of your friends every year for the past NINETEEN, it’s just weird. I think I’m getting a little used to it – but that probably has to do with the fact that I’m kind of making money. That always helps.

So I thought  I would put together a little list  – and this list is called:


Yeah that’s right. And here we go.

(1) I worked three jobs in one day. You heard me – three. The first was a saxophone masterclass at a high school, the second my internship at BuildASign (which is now finished!), and thirdly, I worked at UT in CoFA (College of Fine Arts – you will hear of this often).  It was crazy – and slightly exhausting. Oh, and can’t forget that night, when I sang at a jam session (although that could not be further from “work” in its negative connotation). Crazy day. (In other news, I’m pretty sure it is punctuationally – THAT’S RIGHT – incorrect to put the period AFTER the parentheses at the end of a sentence. However, I think that when you parenthesize at the end of a sentence, that looks silly. Therefore, I refuse to do it. Ever).

(2) I remembered to buy toilet paper before it was a crisis.

(3) Clothes. Yeah, that’s right – I know that I am growing up because I dress up everyday. And, although I feel like I outgrew this habit awhile ago, there is no more going anywhere in PJ’s/sweats. Remember those days? The days where you rolled out of bed 10 minutes before class started and put on a hat? I sure do. Although, one time my undergrad music theory teacher told me a looked “like a homeless person”. I’m completely serious. And nowadays, I don’t think anyone wants a homeless person teaching their students how to play the saxophone. On a street corner. With the case open for tips.

(4) I have curtains. And not just any curtains – awesome, IKEA, boldly-patterned curtain panels. They are kick ass – and my living room looks rad because of them. Check it.

Sorry the lighting is terrible. But the curtains are hella cool.

(5) I have a blog. You may have noticed this. Why does this mean that I am growing up? Because I don’t get to see people every day and pontificate about things I love/hate/laugh at/want/am interested in. Isn’t that what blogging is all about? I mean, I hope people read it, but really – I’m pontificating.

(6) I reopened a Savings Account. Did you know that when your Savings Account has $0.00 in it for a looooong time that they close it? Sassy.

(7) I’m working on a website! I hope it turns out really awesome, but if anyone has any suggestions about websites/buying domain names/etc., please let me know. Also, be thinking about what the site should actually be. Although I like lizlovemusic(dot)com, I feel like we can get more creative here, people.

(8) I dust things.

So I think that about covers it. Adulthood = awesome, annoying, responsiblicious, and inevitable. Who could ask for anything more?
