If you've got a couple hours to zone out on your couch and take in the beauty of vast ice and snow covered mountains, i HIGHLY recommend checking out Encounters at the End of the World. A documentary about Antartica and the people who choose to live there, this movie really captures the oddities and ironies of the people running away from the rest of the world in order to be alone. Not to mention the genius scientists that spend their lives there discovering new species of life under a frozen tundra. The musical moments are worth the time alone.

2. binge drinking
3. donuts in the morning
4. creativity lost
1. so i just want to throw out there that i hate this GD weather. like pick a mother fucking season, Minnesota. I have supported you for 26 years. always come home to you. always told people you'd be a great place to raise a family. I've waited out snowstorms that should only take place in the north fucking pole, and for what? for a shit storm you call spring? i mean look, i get it...and i hate it. i hate when i'm grumpy at the freaking coffee shop and someone says "we always forget about March... dont we?" WE? like look buddy, WE aren't friends so let's leave ME the fuck alone. I also might knife the next bitch to say "it makes us appreciate summer so much more!" MOTHER FUCKER, this state's excuse for a summer lasts less than 90 days. FUCK IT. I'M OUT!
2. binge drinking... i do it. get over it. i don't need your commentary. thanks.
3. what would Jesus do? he'd eat a donut. that's why I'm not religious. Jesus wants me fat. asshole.
4. where the shit did all my creativity go? i hope it was at least smart and got the fuck out of dodge, and by dodge i mean MN (<--Dear Zack Braff, make a new movie about MN called "garbage state," Thanks, Maddie). Anywhooch, this is my way of apologizing to my fan(s?) about the lack of creativity on my blog as of late. i have lost my edge. thus the issue from #2.
Sense of humor, inspiration, thick skin.*
Last seen 11am Saturday morning.
If found, Please return to me ASAP.
Reward: Everlasting adoration, cheerful disposition, peanut butter cookies.
*I am guilty of being in a funk and masking it with tears, deep bottles of wine and even deeper pockets that i threw at ebay and shopbop.
And it's only Monday.
THIS MUST STOP.

After a sunday-funday like no other (thank god its back!), i was reflecting at some of the buzzed convos i shared with a few key ladyfriends... one in specific was about the term hipster and what defined it. In some way, aren't we all hipsters? i mean, everyone loves to be a little funky or quirky, and frankly if you don't, i don't want to know you! A darling stylista i know often describes herself as hating hipsters... which i found to be quite odd as all the things i considered "hipster" were things she really fell into. The term has become so stereotyped that it's now more of a joking way to describe someone in tight pants and overly-puttied hair rocking the latest neon wayfarer-knock offs.
I still think its someone who likes things that tend to be non-mainstreamed.. but thats just me! Can't it just be another term to describe a time period in our generation? like in the same way we used to say "grunge" or "beatnik" or "punk" or "hippy"? Or maybe its just another way to help the people feel like they belong to a group (even though they'd never admit that's what they're really searching for)?
Then i found a book, which i will be ordering, that had a list about what makes you a hipster or a non-hipster. perfection. and pure comedy.

Today, I went to the gym with two of my friends expecting to pay a guest fee but the cute guy working at the front desk let me in for free. On the way out after working out I started to flirt with him and he said "Don't flatter yourself, I just let you in because I'm lazy." FML
I've always loved a good statement necklace or earring, but lately i have realized that growing older, ew, and out of my "you have to have a tiffany's necklace for everyday wear" stage i was duped into believing in college, I don't have a petite lil necklace i can throw on daily, no matter what the ensemble. I have also been mentally arguing with myself on if I'm a "gold" or "silver" person... as it tends to change daily. but, i think for every day wear, i will be going with silver... as those are my go-to stud earrings at this point (note: both options are also available in gold so i feel ok if i change my tune). I like that there is both something a bit quirky and not generic about these two, and I'm leaning towards the baby shark tooth (Awesome!), but theres something so delicate and pretty about the teardrop. They're both between 30-40 bucks so $ isn't the factor... thoughts?
