though i don't particularly want to speed up the process, i'm pretty darn excited about a trip to VEGAS!(i've been once, but i was only 16.)
i'm not a gambler, but the many other experiences to be had are rather enticing.
Topping my list is the Richard Petty Driving Experience.
confession - i have a bit of a lead foot (i blame my dad)
unfortunately i don't know how to drive standard, so i can't drive the race car, but i'm going to ride shotgun :)
and this launched the idea of theme days, so here's what i have so far:
- if you're not first, you're last day - inspired by ricky bobby
- tacky college student day - think boat shoes, neon, and croakies
- geriatric day - fanny packs and mixed metallics required
any other ideas will be greatly appreciated!
i'm currently painting meredith and ted's new house. she willingly took the role of guinea pig, and let me design her living areas. it's the first time a design of mine will be implemented. a bit frightening, but kinda cool, too :)

please. hold your criticism.
i know it can be inappropriate and degrading, but all that aside, there is something infectious about the genius rhymes and incredible beats.
i admire rappers' confidence to be completely ridiculous and own it. the clocks, the grills, the obnoxious amount of jewelry. what person in their right mind would wear some of the stuff rappers do?
who else besides auctioneers can talk that fast? and with that cleverly insult people at the same time?
and on that note, who can do it off the top of their head, on the spot?
my hat's off to you rappers of the world.
with all that said... don't worry i still do thoroughly enjoy other, more classic art forms.

having a splendid dinner with my beautiful, amazing fellow interior design majors. they make it all bearable.
because i'm in SUCH a good mood, i'm going to share a number of therapeutic things :)
first up is Chili's Reggae Sunsplash (which i ordered tonight and was my best decision of the day):
next up is driving through central texas.
many people hate the drive between houston and waco, but i LOVE it.
my favorite parts are
- the quaint town of calvert
- the section of highway 6 just south of college station where there are tons of wildflowers
- then dispersed throughout the drive, there are these perfect little ponds, some with small decks, at which i desperately want to spend an afternoon.
the last time i drove back and forth was by far the best yet. that night before there was a big storm, so that afternoon was absolutely perfect with piercing cloudless blue skies and bright sunshine. it took a lot in me to not turn down one of the random side roads and just drive to who knows where.
luckily, now that i'm done with finals, i get to enjoy the drive again tomorrow! :)
