so as per the demand of the public urging me to update my blog (no really, this is like, sooooo popular), i'd like to talk about my life this past month.
well, to sum it up, after two and a half months of desperately searching out a "real" job, i found myself frusterated and without many options, since i ran out of my savings. it was really weird, because i was just about to go in to my first day at yet another bartending gig when this recruiter stopped me on the street and was like, " holy shit, i've been trying to get in contact with you forever, my company has been hearing all about you, your successful blog, the incredible slew of paintings you've made recently, and how talented you are in general. i'd like to offer you a full time position doing this great and amazing job and the salary is out of this world." strange, right? i was like, no... you got the wrong person. ha! yeah......so i got a job bartending again.. at least the place is decent, Buddakan . i'm trying to make the best of it and pursue other things in the mean time.
i'm going to a wine tasting this saturday. it's going to be nice, i think. i designed the program:
it's for the gallery i work for Vox Populi , which got robbed last weekend of a flat screen tv and dvd player. boo.
i also made a dress today. there is this website that has patterns on it for free that you can download and print out- www.burdastyle.com. i recommend it! thanks, Colin for telling me about it.
anyhow thats enough for now. i'll throw up some photos from this last month. and more to come!
one more thing! me and steven went to see this movie Gone Baby Gone earlier tonight, directed by ben affleck, and it's surpsisingly really really good!! i also recommend it.
so to take it way back to end of august, me and steven and sean and wes all went to this quarry to go jumpling of the rocky cliffs. it was a freaking blast and a hell of a day...we met these hicks from alabama and kentucky who were fishing on a floating dock....it's random, since this quarry is in the middle of a corprate park, meaning there wasn't any way to tell that there was even water or a place to walk down into the quarry from. the jump was a good 30 feet, and yes i did jump even after about ten minutes of standing there and staring down. the water was crystal clear and warmer than bath water. so fun. here are the hick dudes with sean and steven and wes:
and after, we had amazing indian food and then drove way deep into southwest philly in search of the point breeze projects, rumored to be the most dangerous (and often rapped about) place in philly and while i admit it wasn't the smartest thing to do, it WAS funny, because sean kept pretending like he was searching for empty fields to hold a fest, even though most of them were so scary i wouldn't have been surprised to see the boogy man selling crack with a limp and a shiny tooth (wait, is that scary or just funny?) you know what i mean. we found secret nicer neighborhoods tucked into the super italian neighborhoods and eventually back home. here are more pics from that day:
and this one is the best, when the boys all were riding the boat on the way back to shore:
then, a few days after, me and megan went to the shore. this crazy rain storm moved in but it was still sunny and it felt strange. we had an awesome day topped off with fish sticks at smitty's, the best seafood joint in all of the east coast. (as if i have any authority over that):
and steven and i went horseback riding the following weekend which was really fun too. i know, my life is so fun. but when you sum it up and just talk about all the exciting things you do then it seems as though there are never any boring parts. our horses weren't as stubborn as the last time i went last summer, but i DID lose my sunglasses in the saddle and steven matched his horse, wich i found amusing. see:
AND i turned into a mannequin at Abby's birthday bash,
and i saw Animal Collective,
and of course, i went to Arizona, and these are some of my favorite photos.
AND one of two or more garbage bags filled with small plastic shopping bags that Emily has been hoarding under her kitchen sink. we discovered them when Dave tried to fix the garbage disposal and needed to clear out room.
