there's really something special about typography - and i'm not sure what. just the impact the font has on me. it helps me see things in a new light that old fashioned times new roman couldn't quite do.

in other news, i am in the good old south of america: birmingham, alabama visiting my sister. tomorrow i'm going to visit a college! yikes. how the time is flying.

how's everyone's weekend starting out?

summer bucket list.

it's summatime.

as it is my goal to not waste away my summer, i've decided to make a summer bucket list! i'll be a senior next year, so i figure that this summer, Summer 2012, is pretty much my last as a 'kid'. 
Here's what's on it so far:
  • read 10 books
  • kick the diet coke habit
  • go to the drive-in movie theater
  • visit the beach often
  • make a new friend
  • get a tan
  • buy a car (iffy)
  • get a pair of converse
  • take a daytrip somewhere interesting
  • gain 50 tumblr followers (my selfish goal. :)
what do you think? think i can do it? i'll keep you all posted on the status of things... :)

california: part 1

Yesterday my sister and I spent the day exploring Balboa Island!

It's probably the cutest place I've ever been to. We spent a good 4 hours just going through all the shops on one street!

If you ever visit Balboa Island (which you should), make sure to get a Balboa Bar from Dad's Donuts! So good. It's basically just ice cream dipped in chocolate, and then dipped in any topping. I got sprinkles!

Cute quote I saw on wall art in a shop yesterday: "You are the sprinkles on my ice cream."

pacific coast.

Saturday afternoon, this gal will be headed for sunny Southern California.

My school's spring break is April 2-6, and I will be spending this time visiting my sister in SoCal.

When I was in middle school, it was my ultimate dream to visit Cali! Five years later and that dream is coming true. We're going to visit Balboa Island, Los Angeles, Newport Beach, and many other places. So excited! (I also think I'm going to get my tragus pierced. But don't tell the 'rents.)
