Some things you can't explain away
Two more Flickr pages I have been loving recently...the first set is from the girl who tamed the tiger. I love her polaroids and photos of polaroids. Her use of gentle lighting is so sensual and her subjects fascinate me.
The other user is Alison Scarpulla. I love her powerful photographs, they are a bit sad and each seems to evoke loneliness in its own way.
I also got tagged by Icon, so here it is. [The Rules: Answer the following questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention and add one more question of your own.] If you're reading this and would like to fill it out, consider yourself tagged!
What is your current obsession? I have been a little obsessed with fmylife.com lately...it's sort of an addiction. If you haven't checked it out, you really should.
What are you wearing now? I'm wearing a pair of brown linen shorts and a dark green flowy top.
What is on your desk? A lamp, my record player, 2 dictionaries, a thesaurus, a couple pages of sheet music, my SAT review book, and a lot of messy papers that probably don't belong there.
What would you like to learn to do? Speak French.
Name a song you are currently obsessing over: I wouldn't say obsessing, but the Clash's "Train in Vain" has been stuck in my head since London Calling has been playing in my car for a few weeks straight. But I'm not complaining, I love that song.
What was the last thing you bought? Ice cream, to celebrate finishing the SAT.
What one item are you currently wanting? A tie die maxi dress from Forever 21.
What languages can you speak? English and Spanish, to some extent.
What is the last book you have read? The last book I have finished is The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. But right now I'm reading The DaVinci Code.
What do you want to be when you grow up? I really don't know anymore. I used to know, but it's so hard to decide. I know when I go to college next year I want to minor in music, and probably major in international affairs, anthropology or journalism.
What are your favourite websites? Fmylife.com, as I previously mentioned, countless fashion, photography and art blogs, Facebook, and Flickr.
If you were to pick up a pen right now, what would be the first thing you'd write? Probably a list of the books I need to order from the library to read this summer.
If you you could be anywhere in the world at any point in time, where would you be? Right now I want to be somewhere very warm and sunny, because it's not here now and that bothers me.
If you could be an animal, what would you be? Definitely a bird. I would love to be able to fly and see everything.
What are you looking forward to in the near future? College. I know it's a year away and it's really stressful preparing for it, but I'm very excited to leave home and have new experiences.
