The Kooks (Ooh La - Live on the streets)
I forgot all about this blog; the one I had in 2010.
Who I Am
1. I am an artist, whose favorite artist is Salvador Dali.
2. I’ve been to 33 U.S. states, purposely neglecting to go to Florida only to find that it’s the place to be. I’ll wait to go when it’s not overrated!
3. I feel that people care too much about wealth and material possessions. We know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.
4. I love hiking, camping, and doing anything outdoors.
5. Japanese food is my favorite, particularly gyoza and sushi.
6. I’ve always wanted to be an actress, but my shy nature has held me back from taking the necessary steps needed to make an actual attempt.
7. The sound my computer makes when I empty the recycle bin is one of my favorite sounds.
8. My favorite flowers are pink roses, sunflowers, and lilacs.
9. I love Woodchuck Cider, wine, and beer.
10. I think 102.7 (WEXQ) is the best radio station ever.
11. I’m either afraid of heights, or afraid of falling. I haven’t really decided yet; I think going skydiving will be the deciding factor.
12. I love stargazing from a hot-tub in the middle of winter.
13. I love picnics and playgrounds.
14. I enjoy doing things that scare me, it makes me feel alive.
15. I think everyone should treat people the way they want to be treated, and to put themselves in other people’s shoes.
It’s hard to choose exactly which band is my favorite, because there’s an entire list of amazing artists to choose from.. But The Vines have definitely been my favorite for the longest amount of time; they’re the first band I ever liked, and the one that got me listening to all the great bands I love now, like The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Muse, Blur, Gorillaz, The Libertines, etc. So I feel I must pay credit where it’s due, to the band that started it all. ;)
I love Lake George in the summer. There’s nothing better than soaking up the sun, spending time with the people you love, and having fun out on the water. There’s always so much to do, and it’s such a beautiful place to live… I feel so lucky that my grandparent’s live right on the edge of the water. Falling asleep listening to the waves crashing against the shore is one of the most peaceful, serene things I can imagine… Waking up to the crisp morning air, and going downstairs to a freshly made breakfast is the best. It’s so rejuvenating just being there, going on picnic lunches, eating out by the water, or going for an afternoon hike.. One thing is for sure; you’re never bored. The sunsets and sunrises are the most beautiful things you’ll ever see, and even the atmosphere of going to the Village when it’s crowded on a Thursday night just to see the fireworks or to hang with friends is amazing. I’m definitely lucky that my childhood included all this adventure, and it’s definitely something I hope to cherish well into adulthood.
Upstate New York
Winters can sometimes be a little rough, and often not very fun to adjust to after a fun-filled summer on Lake George. Living in Albany admittedly makes it worse, having to dig your car out of a beautifully compacted fence of snow. Parking lots make the process a whole lot easier, but not when you’re unaware that you need to move your car for a scheduled plowing. Another thing Albany is good at; giving tickets.
Olive, Paige, Madiha and Kim; My Albany girls. We’ve had so many fun amazing nights dancing, running around doing “parkour,” and tons of late night trips Madison’s Pizza. I’ll never forget the night Olivia blacked out from Jungle Juice, tried “getting low” and fell on the floor.. Or the time I told her I’d give her $3 if she gave the guy Madiha was dancing with a wedgie because his boxers were hanging out hahaha I’ll also never forget the less fun times, like walking through the freezing cold snow with Kim in nothing but little black dresses and open toed heels… I couldn’t feel my feet the whole night! But the bad and the good all blur together to make one big Albany adventure, and as long as I’m with my girls you know we’re having fun. ;)
