I was reminded recently that my school lends out camera equipment for free, so today I stocked up on cool stuff ! I borrowed a Nikon D90, a tele-photo lens, a fisheye lens (my personal favourite), and an external flash. I am having a lot of fun playing around with the camera. These were some photos I took of my outfit for half the day. I had around 3 outfit changes today: 1 that I wore to class that was comfy, then a dress for photo adventures with my friends, and then this outfit to relax in ! I hope you all had a great day !

Love Games


I might be leaving my school soon, unfortunately. This is a little video I made of some of my closest friends. It's funny how I have made some best friends here in just a few months, and it really sucks to think of leaving. The song in the background is from one of the best inside jokes we have here, which is Old Gregg.
On a side note, Becca (the little blonde one in the video) also has a blog ! Check it out HERE

Watercolour painting based from this look
Tonight was lousy. Painting made me feel better, as it often does. I want to go home(aka, school).

Christmas Decorating

Well, when you have a tight budget like my roommates and I do, Christmas decorating isn't too extravagant. Oh well, this is simple but effective :)

Well, I have been slacking on the photo taking lately. However, I recently found a bunch of film pictures that I had taken in the past so I'll share those with you !

I Feel like I'm taking crazy pills

I think if I am sick for one more day I am going to go insane. My plan to get a good night sleep last night failed miserably, and I stayed awake until 4am. It took 3 Gravol pills to finally put me to sleep. Thankfully, today is my late day of classes. I had to cut my shower short today too, when I started feeling so faint that I thought I was going to pass out in the bathroom. These photos were taken yesterday, when I cocooned myself in my blankets and tried to sleep off this horrible flu. Note my puffy cheeks and bed head... attractive, eh ? Off to my 3 hour long accounting class now ! Have a great day !

ps, listen to this song.  It's called "Song for Dan Treacy" by MGMT. Anyone who says that the album, Congratulations, is not as good as Oracular Spectacular is crazy. It is so amazing, and so much more like their original stuff from their old EP.

More wall art for the financially-challenged

photos by me of my wall art
Living in a dorm room, you get very used to having all white surroundings.. walls, doors, closet organizers shelves, blinds are all white. Even my desk is a pale shade of wood. The only thing that differs from the rest of the decor is the horrendous dark grey carpeting. So, I needed a way to add a bit of colour to my room, without making it look tacky or over-done. I started by picking one accent colour for my room (I chose red) and adding little hints of the colour throughout, like my garbage bin, lamp, and sheets. For the walls, I decided that I would make it look like I spent money on decals, when really the only cost was the original price of the Nylon magazine that I hacked to bits to make the design. I drew up 4 different bird stencils, all of them at a different stage of flight (flapping their wings, gliding, diving, etc) and then traced the stencils on torn out magazine pages. Then, I used sticky tack to make them stay on the wall, and voila ! Took about 20 minutes, and cost about $3.00 !

I'm wide awake.. it's morning.

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

That's a lie, I'm not wide awake and it is 6:00pm right now ! I have been so tired for the last few weeks. My mom thinks it has to do with a lack of iron in my body, since I haven't been eating proper meals at school. Anyways, school has been fun so far, and Halloween was awesome ! I dressed up as a Scotsman. I still feel like I want to transfer to a college right in Toronto for next year, though. I am not a mid-sized city person.. I love small towns or huge cities.

On another note, those scratches on my arm are the result of a drunken fall on Friday. I have more unidentifiable cuts and bruises on my body than anyone I know !

On a side-note, my roommate, Christina, had a great idea the other day: As you probably know, November has been selected as the month where all of the boys grow big dirty mustaches and no one can tell them to shave them off because it's Movember (mustache+November).. Well, Christina decided that boys shouldn't get to be the only ones who have all of the fun, so for the entire month of November she will wear lipstick to classes and while she does her day-to-day activities. Should be fun to watch ! Check it out on her blog Student of Fashion
