My cousin has been here for the month of August, so of course, we went on a little photo outing and I just finished editing them inspired by google poetry and ALIENS.
I've been super sick since the weekend so I had a lot of extra time to edit these (and watch a lot of old glee episodes...) (it's my guilty pleasure)
Anyway, I'm finally feeling better and getting back into all the homework I missed (YAY!)
Probably the best part of being in England was the day I got to meet Ellie and Opi. They were just the raddest babes and we walked around Brick Lane and talked and took photos of one another, because as bloggers we all understood the need to constantly have your photo taken/take other's photos. It was boiling that day so I was pretty much almost having a heat stroke the entire time, but it was worth it cuz I looked cute. Both Ellie and Opi were so sweet and it was really really awesome to get to meet them! Ellie told me my blog was the first blog she "properly read" which was so sweet, especially as I now religiously read hers..?
AUGH, I JUST LOVE THE INTERNET!
Here are some of the best photos (Ellie took the ones of me)
It was a truly dreamy day! I can't even express how amazing it was/what a great time I had.
ALSO! If we're friends on the interwebs and you ever come to Berkeley/San Francisco hit me up because I WILL SHOW YOU AROUND BECAUSE I WANT TO HANG OUT WITH YOU GUYS BECAUSE IT'S MY DREAM AND THIS WAS AWESOME.
CHECK OUT OPI's BLOG also she does stuff for TPZ (The Pulp Zine) too, and her photosets are amazing so check that out as well!

I'm proud of myself for posting a normal length of time from the last time I posted. I feel a lot better than the last post, thanks for all the nice comments ily all. I got together with two of my freshman (now sophomore, eek!) friends and we had a mini collage party at my house which was really nice and allowed me to almost finish my journal!? Two pages left! Get excited for a journal post coming up (or dont, thats also chill) I've been super inspired by all this blue toned/underwater artwork, I'm not sure why I'm all the sudden entranced by oil paintings of people in water, but I am obsessed. I thought they sort of went with the vibe here, so I put them togehter. Sorry it's such a random grouping of stuff..? Two things about these:
1. My grandpa told me I looked like a baby in there. Not really sure why, but it felt worth sharing.
2. I'm very jet-lagged in these photos, so I was trying to do my "neutral" face, and ended up just looking really really tired, so sorry for my face. I can't do much about it.
