the raven

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
This it is, and nothing more,'

i've always loved poetry, and while i do write my own, i have NEVER shown it to anyone haha so maybe someday i will be brave enough to do so. but until then, some Edgar Allen Poe should satiate my poetry craving. 

**and if you like poetry, Bev from i carry your heart  writes beautifully! she hasn't written anything lately, but when i found her blog, i went all the way to the beginning and read everything.

also, if anyone knows how to use this html editor thing... i'd appreciate any tips i could get, because it doesn't seem to post things the way i type them. soo irritating. :P


roadtrip pt. 1

My friends and i headed down to Ottawa for Canada Day weekend! Our very first roadtrip and weekend away from home, together. 

we headed down thursday morning, and got there by like 330pm. 

immediately started preparing for the canada day festivities, because apparently, torontonians dont know how to celebrate their country. ottawa-tonians (no idea what they're actually called hahah but thats my made-up name for them), on the other hand, are crazy! the streets and the Rideau centre were packed full of people in red and white, drinking, singing oh canada and celebrating. i've decided i'm spending every canada day in ottawa, from now on.

Since my camera still has not been fixed, i bought 2 disposable cameras for the occasion. I think I have been converted. haha i LOVE how the pictures turned out! these are just a few of the pictures from thursday and part of friday! 
hahahahahah this guy was so into it. VERY patriotic.
i don't really know where my friends' clothes are from but on me;
denim jacket- black market
red tshirt- zara men's
silver leaf ring- forever21
rainbow sunglasses- black market
white shorts (not pictured)- American Eagle

hat- forever21
grey crop top- American Apparel raglan/diy
denim high waisted shorts (which you cant really see)- value village
sandals- H&M
watch- dads
sunglasses- rayban

Two of my friends were also taking pictures, so there are WAY more photos to come! 

This summer has been crazy. I feel like i'm never home! Tonight will be my first night in what feels like a LONG time, that i'm staying home. maybe i'll watch a movie or sew, or bake or something... the possibilities are endless..... 



Happy Canada Day to any Canadians out there!
I have no idea why i'm up awake right now. i have to be up at 8am because my friends and i are taking a roadtrip down to our country's capital to celebrate the birth of Canada!

Wrote the final exam for summer school class numero uno, last wednesday. celebrated by going out weds. thurs. fri. and sat. apparently i've turned into a "party girl" this summer.
reality: i have no job and no friends (because they all HAVE jobs). so what else is a girl to do with her time but drink and party, really....
(from last, last thursday when we planned on going to bar244, ended up at london taphouse, then decided the fox and the fiddle would be more fun... eventful night.... My floral jumpsuit is from Forever21, watch was my dad's)

weds. was actually the most fun i've had in awhile! there's this "event"(?) every wednesday night at this club (?) called the Basement. A place so small that everyone is forced to rub up against each other, dripping in sweat, and stepping on toes. sounds pretty gross but its lotsa fun! 

On the walk home (we're poor, so we can't afford to take cabs hahah), we saw a bunch of guys climbing a fence to get into the public pool. In our states of mind, we thought it would be a good idea to join. at the time, it might have been, but we woke up with cuts and bruises in VERY uncomfortable places.
clearly very excited to finally have finished having to study... haha

(i swear i wasn't making any asian jokes here. i honestly have no clue what i was doing lmao...)
-Black AA U-neck dress
-Striped Tshirt from H&M
-Payless Oxford ankle boots (not pictured)

Thursday wasn't quite as fun... we just walked around toronto... allllll night.....
(i clearly take amaazing outfit shots, right? i'll work on those...)
Tank- H&M
Skirt- H&M
Shoes- Converse

my beautiful roomies <33

friday, we went to see down with webster! i met the most attractive 16 year old. lmao....  he was perfect. luckily, there is nothing illegal about staring. i didn't get any pictures of that. all i have are pictures from earlier that day when we went to the bar to watch the spain-chile game!!! i think i'm the only person who doesn't get into games. don't get me wrong, i love watching them! i'm just such a calm, emotionless person (ha) that when they scored... i was the only person NOT screaming and jumping on my chair. 
SORRY for the overload of writing/photos! It has been an eventful week! i only have phone pictures from saturday (my best friends birthday), so they aren't really worth showing.
i should be sleeping now, seeing as my wakeup call is in less than 6.5 hours. 
there will most DEFINITELY be pictures from this weekend. i got my brother to go out and pick me up a disposable camera (since mine is STILL broken, and im too poor to buy a new one... lmao)
good night
