after a long, uncalculated dissapearance, i have decided to use tumblr again as a normal blog or whatever. i like the pictures. i don’t like the teenage banter. i doooooo like the name though!
technically yesterday, i got back from my second DanceThis camp. the camp blew my mind and i met the most spectacular people there. i didn’t think i would get so upset when i had to leave, but just thinking about it still gets me a little emotional. i learned more about myself in one week than i did in an entire year. i’m happy to say that i went to DANCE CAMP. haahaa.
the one thing that really ended up bugging me throughout the stay at camp wasn’t the people or food or bed, but the amount of waste i was creating. i felt disgusting leaving so much leftover food behind. i partly blame the chef for creating strangely bland yet expensive meals. feeling stuffed and seeing almost half a plate of food left over created a guilt that stuck with me. i’m supposed to be good at conserving and know how much i’ll really eat. that plate showed me how off my settings are. i don’t need nearly as much stuff as i have or want. i’m sick of how much excess has been created in my life. constantly trying to add the finishing touches onto the person i’ve become with material things has only made my room messy. nothing changes. i always know nothing else will change and i should grow up and stick with what i’ve got. you don’t know what you got til’ its gone right?
speaaaaaaking of gone…poor Edwin II passed away at approximately 2pm today. i hope you have a good time in the ocean little man. your scaly complexion will be missed in the family room. i havent unplugged your bubbles yet. Edwin lived a solid four and a half years of underwater life with his tyrannasaurus girlfriend gwen. rest in peace, may the bubbles toss you in the right direction! the weird coincidence about my fish dying today was that my dad found him dead at home when i started crying uncontrollably in the car. that weirded me out. my mom was talking to him on the phone and he just said the fish died around two. HMMMM STRANGEE. i’m not getting another fish for a loooong time. cleaning fish tanks is my least favorite chore ever, so keep me away from the pet store.
oliver is huge now. definitely twice his original size, plus he grew while i was away. apparently he thought i had died or something because he won’t let me out of his sight :). i am wayyyyyyy too obessed with this puppy, still. he’s sleeping on my pillow. my bed bug free pillow. none for you fort warden death insects. so disgusting.
another awesome thing that happened today after leaving was goinggg to port townsend. my mom bought a crazy artsy jacket with felt flowers shooting behind the neck. i’m sure the designer had her in mind when they made it. i found a new cupcake decorating kit, an octopus ring, and a cool optical illusion thing for my camera! but i saved the best for last when i randomly decided to go into an art gallery in a tiny alley street. i saw the most beautiful photography i’ve ever seen. the photographer just happened to be working the day i came in and even explained how she edited all her pictures to me (they have intensely saturated color). so i’ve decided i need to try it. first i need to learn more skills in photography.
i am pretty sure i’ve typed off my fingertips now. i’ll put pictures up tomorrow.
