Seattle: "Most literate city in America in 2005"

Lizzy & I decided to do something with our miraculous time off from work and went our merry way up to Seattle to shop around and see some friends who go to school there. We had a rockin' good time filled with a BBQ, Die Hard, hanging out, traffic, good music and some shopping. There's nothing better then buying yourself some flowers down at Pike's Market and eating some fish and chips on the warf.

Why do you do what you do?

I'm steering away from the usual post today to bring your attention to a really cool site I stumbled on tonight. Head on over to Why do you do what you do? It's a simple concept. People send in their photographs to answer that very question and most do it in some pretty interesting ways. I thought I would give it a go and so I chose to use a photograph taken while I was in Edinburgh, Scotland.

This also relates perfectly because Portland has held a few different collaborations with the website if you scroll down and take a glance.

Oh PDX, you do us so proud.

"Come to me with the worst you've said & done."

Today I had a big surprise waiting for me when I got home. My boyfriend bought me a relaxing trip to the spa! I don't really know what to say, but I'll say it again. Wow, thank you! I'm excited to melt away all my school and wisdom teeth extraction worries. Plus, I've never been and can only imagine how amazing it will be. Thank you! Thank you! The top picture shows the gift certificate which was itself a feast of beauty to this graphic design student.

My second photograph shows more graffiti that has been popping up all over Northwest Portland. I've seen a couple other things of theirs around and I've got to say how much I like it. Very wistful and not obnoxious like a lot of graffiti seems to be with me.

Photos 103 - 120 (aka photo dump)

Okay! I finally got internet but right now it's being really dumb.
Here are 17 pictures, and I will upload the other 20 later.

I found my journals and started writing again.


This is my new kitty, Jax.
He's a little snot but I love him so.

My wish on a dandelion

We've been a bit obsessive with parks and picnics lately.
