I’m back! I went to Queens to visit my friend Yael and meet up with our other friends from college on . I left my house at 1:30 on Friday and took a bus, train, then a bus and the subway to get to her house. I got there at 8:30, greeted with lots of hugs and wonderful food made by Yael’s mom. We sat around until 11, then went dancing at Webster Hall to RAC, Viceroy, and other awesome electronic artists. I was too tipsy to think to take pictures, but I wore my galaxy leggings, and apparently New York hipsters like them cause a LOT of guys wanted to dance with me.

We got home around 5 am the next day, and then at 3pm, we packed up the car to go to Jones Beach. It was such a nice day. We got back in the car to leave at 7and it wouldn’t start. We jumped the car with the help of some nice old ladies parked near us, and went back. Later we went into Manhattan and got Pommes Frites. If you’ve never had them, that’s something you need to do. They were so wonderful, and were a great ending to a great trip. I am incredibly tired from running around NY and lack of sleep, but it was worth it. I love my friends so much. We are such a family and it was so great to see them. Whenever I see them, it’s like no time has passed; we pick up right where we left off.

Well followers, it’s about to be that time again, back to school ( college in my case) time. That means I won’t have the leisure of posting everyday, as I’m sure you won’t too. I move in the 26th and I’m excited as ever. This summer was decent because I discovered more about who I am and want to be, and got to do things I’ve been putting off. Catching up with my friends and family was much needed and definitely not taken for granted. I’ll try to post at least once a week on tumblr but I can’t make any promises with the type of classes and hours I work this semester. Fair winds and good luck in your life outside tumblr, my dears. Be careful, it’s a scary place out there.

Reblogged my new photography blog. Has a bunch of pictures that I took but are just sitting around on my computer, so I decided to put them on tumblr to make people happy. How cheezy.

New Playlist- Summer Nights

10 tracks for relaxing on cool summer nights, featuring Kings of Convenience, Young the Giant, Beach House, Fleet Foxes and Jason Mraz, 

I was looking through a bunch of old family pictures and I found a bunch from my parents honeymoon. They were taken in Mexico in 1990. Look at all this horrendous 80’s/90’s fashion. If you didn’t tell anyone, these look like they could have been taken recently. 



There’s a place off Ocean Avenue where I used to sit and talk with you…

we were both sixteen and it felt so right, sleeping all day, staying up all night. staying up all night.

There’s a place on the corner of Cherry Street
We would walk on the beach in our barefeet…

Today I went to the mall and a park near my house with Cody and Jamie! I practically hadn’t seen them since graduation. We always have fun when we hang out, and we did a photo shoot cuz we Ke$ha, Beyonce and Katy Perry. haha <3 They’re both a riot and I love them to death. 

New 8tracks playlist entitled “Stereotypical Hipster Bullshit.” It just happens to be my summer playlist. :) Old and new music that sounds like summer.
