worked two jobs and commuted to school for summer class. basically i'm now on break so just this last week I copped some amazing stuff, hiked to hot springs with my brothers, moved into a new house, and got my wisdom teeth removed (literally 4 hours ago). washington state is now slightly less on fire and my sister in law is pregnant so things are pretty great!

I'm back at the hospital again (and thankfully not laying in a bed this time) and I met a new girl and she plays the guitar and sings and likes brand new so that's pretty neato

Things are good, hi again

Started and ended a relationship because I moved to Austin and started college.
Didn't do too much sitting alone in my room, just a lot of hanging out with friends and working.
Summer was alright.

picked up photography somewhat over the summer. sold my t5i to fund a camera that is an absolute blast to shoot with (fuji xt1)

did a whole lot of nothing aside from that which i'm happy about cause i got to spend it with a ton of cool people - especially one in particular.

Realized current work is shit so I quit after four years.

Cant remember much of what actually happened the past two or so months but I remember feeling the absolute worst so I guess it hadnt been good.

Drove around the west coast with a friend after spending a month in Flag for a summer program. Went to the Del Mar fair then up to SF, down through Flagstaff and back to Tucson. All moved in on campus in Flagstaff, school.

San Francisco:




Adult Cabaret (bad idea):


House Show:


Girlfriend moved to CZ, we knew we weren't going to do long distance but it's still been really hard. School has helped clear my mind/occupy me though. Read All the Pretty Horses (way better than expected), On the Road, Just Mercy (stevenson), The Rosie Project and I reread Inherent Vice. Didn't get to take too many pictures this summer because I was saving money to get a DSLR.

Moved into my first apartment, developed carpal tunnel and had to take a break from drums, read some old wild west novels, ate ice cream, played a lot of guitar.

I'm on the old-man unbroken-monotony schedule along with teck. That said, I'm still losing weight and got rid of a lot of XL shirts and size-36 shorts. Now I'm wearing Large shirts and size-34 shorts.

This newfangled slim-fit stuff doesn't look like ass if you're not fat. I dislike it less now.

I spent two weeks at Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) largely surrounded by women (strong +) and made a few lasting of friends in Texas, esp. the San Antonio area.

Learned from my roommate Marcus about camping, crossfit, photography, and losing yourself on the dancefloor, and traded back my immersive knowledge of fashion, music, and unimportant nerdy things.


Came out of summer healthier, happier, and more of an adult. Job coming soon.

Don't do that again guys, significantly reduced my preferred lurking spots.

Main things were that I passed my driving test, went to Thailand, and bought a car. I've maybe got my first conference talk lined up too.

- Started grad school for something I'm actually interested in, love it
- personal life is going great
- started training for a half marathon
- went to Seattle/Portland, it was alright
- lost all interest in fashion/style, loving it

Feels weird to have C-T back, I almost forgot about it.

This summer has been weird. I've moved like twice due to poor planning and, imo, bad luck and now I've got to move again at the end of this month :( Aside from being stressed from that it's been good though. Saw Kanye and spent a day in Montreal in July, I got a sweet job at one of those restaurants where you eat in the dark (perfect for a goth bb like me), and I've been DJing more/partying probably too much. It feels nice to finally be finding a spot in the scene here and it's already leading to some cool opportunities. One of my really good friends from back home recently moved here as well so that's awesome.

I've kind of liked being a little distanced from internet fashion stuff so I might not post here much, but I figured I'd say hi at least :heck:

I went to Denver to attend a conference. I didn't understand the majority of the talks but I met some great people.

Got a job and worked there for 4 weeks because surprise! My bf got a new job so we upped and moved from LA to Xanadu where we now reside. Been great so far but the job hunt continues!

Other than that: lazy days at home doing lots of reading and self-studying.

yes! this too ( *•̀.̫•́* )✧ the tomato ramen was fucked up good in a really weird way

we also took one step inside the BAPE store and rushed out because there were a ton of bright lights and tiles, scary music, and multiple arrays of minion t-shirts

@nick: the curry was the smallest box i bought but was the most expensive out of all of what i got. it was fairly spicy, very robust, and it came with a lil packet of beef bouillon paste for added flavor. it was pretty good, and i'd recommend experiencing it yourself whenever you can. comparable to the spiciest version of java curry but more rich.

I kept putting off writing to germinal for two months and then afterwards felt so guilty about it for another five months that I pretended it was a problem that didn't exist. Which, I guess, could be a metaphor for my life.
