I'm With You

Due to some random youtubing, I found myself watching Avril Lavigne's new music video for "Wish You Were Here." That video was a part of an automatic playlist and the next video that started playing was from her Live AOL sessions.

I never thought Avril Lavigne was able to sing that well live, but I was really impressed with her during these videos. So much so that I pulled out my sketchbook. I found a picture that I liked and sketched it out, and while the final outcome doesn't look too much like Avril, I think the resemblance is there.  The more draw and the more practice I get, the more my portraits will look like they are intended to look. So, looks like more practice for me!


And here are a couple of those videos from her AOL Sessions that inspired my Avril mood.

Thank you Chris Moore.

Yesterday I became the pround owner of a brand new (used) car! When I started my car hunt, the first car I saw online that interested me was a bright blue Aveo. I went to test drive it, and at the dealership Chris Moore told me about this lonely Elantra that's been sitting next to the blue Aveo for quite some time. He was telling me how its original owner was an older woman who stopped driving it as soon as her husband passed and started using his car. It sat in her garage for a while before she finally sold it. I've always heard that you should aim to get and ex-old person's car since they take great care of them. I decided to take it for a spin and I really really liked it. You can't stop at your first crush though, you need to keep looking to see if its the one. I looked at a few other cars including some Ford Focuses and a couple other fuel efficient cars.

Let me tell you about one experience with a Ford Focus I found. Well, first warning sign, it was a 2010 with about 35-40 thousand miles that only cost $9000. Then when my dad and I got to where it was located (Star Auto Group in Melvindale) we walked around the tiny lot and found the car. We were looking through its windows when the owner of the lot came walking out towards us speaking Arabic into his phone and taking breaks in between is long winding Arabic convo to answer some questions. Warning sign number 2? He barely spoke English. We'll test drive it though. What if this is a hidden gem? It wasn't. As we pulled off the lot the low gas light lit up. Guess we can't drive it too much. Then I look up and notice the dome light looked odd. I push up on it to test the lights and it fell out of the ceiling! Danger sign 3: the car is falling apart from the inside out. After the brief attempt at a test drive, we walk into the building and find Chatty Cathy. He tells us about how the car is in such great shape, etc, and when I ask for a car history report, he ignores my request and hands me the title of the car and says its like brand new, never been in an accident, yadda yadda. We finally get the car history report and what does it say? Structural damage which could lead to frame instability. Goodbye Cathy.

Then I checked out Quincy and her Fiesta, which, as you know, I did not care for.

It all led me back to the Elantra.

Smells like fall.

Today was my last day of freedom. And clearly Mother Nature wanted to make damn sure I knew summer is over, so she turned down her thermostat and made me pull out a hoodie and jeans. She also swapped the pleasant summer smell for that crisp autumn air freshener. It sucks to admit summer is gone, but the smell in the air makes the anticipation for cider mills and Halloween bubble up. Listen to me whining about the "cold" weather when its probably going to be in the upper 80s later this week. I can't help it. I'm a summer baby.

I am continuing my hunt for a car, which I am starting to think is harder than hunting for Grumps. I went out to Birmingham today to test drive a Ford Fiesta, which I am surprised I wasn't crazy about. It drove a little clunky, and it was missing my beloved cruise control (and my even more beloved USB port). The owner brought her giant horse of a dog with her for "safety". The dog was big (being a Russian Terrier) but the pony tail in her hair definitely slammed the brakes on the intimidation factor. In all honesty though, I was more interested in Quincy than I was the Fiesta.

One of the best things about Nate's house in Royal Oak is the emphasis put on desert. It's thought of before dinner even enters the foyer of the mind. Today, the wondrous idea of homemade ice cream cookies came about. Nate and Pat made some kind of wonderful oatmeal raisin chocolate coconut giant cookies and we then put a block of butter pecan ice cream in between two cookies and enveloped our taste buds in something that would make the Norse Gods think mead tasted like merde pies.

Lets get this blog off the floor, shall we?

I'm going to try and get back into the groove of things and get back to my blog.
I've made some pretty neat art that I want to post, and I hope to continue to make and post more art.

I don't know what direction this blog will go in, nor do I think I ever knew. It was always sort of random, and thats just how my brain works.

So you'll see some art, some of the things I like (and dislike), some tales (maybe tall?) from adventures and my ventures in life.

Stay tuned.

HDB Chelsea!



Today is dedicated to my good dear (one of my) best friend(s) CHELSEA KIRCHOFF. She was born 24 years ago today, and I know what you are thinking. 24?! She looks much............ younger! ;-p I enjoy bothering her about that. She is sensitive about her age. (Like the Zac Efron 30-something look alike from Real Steel.)

All in all, Chelsea is an amazing person, and I enjoy the time we spend together. I can't believe we met under a year ago. We must have been friends in a past life or something since it feels like we've known each other for much longer!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHELSEA!

Can't wait to rendezvous for some more Buffy REAL SOON!

Fun Day at the Fitch

Someone returned this wonderful shirt and pants to the Fitch today. They definitely looked like they were from the 90s, but they had a receipt that said otherwise. Some might say they weren't really Abercrombie and Fitch clothing, just some "bootleg" versions with an AnF tag attached. I don't know who they are though...


As you can see, we were really productive today!

Indefinite Hiatus

I've decided to put my blog on hold for a while.

Now that the semester is drawing to an end and I have finals to study for and papers to write, I think I'm going to have to focus more on my studies and less on my blog.

After school ends I might come back to the blog if I feel up to it. I'm not too sure though, because lately it's felt more like a nuisance than fun, which is why I started it.

I don't know, we'll see.

Blast From the Past: August 30, 31 2009

I recently looked at my old journal I kept on my computer, looking for a reason as to why I started watching Buffy, since I have no clue what sparked my interest. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a reason, but I did some reading from when I first started and these two entries cracked me up!

August 30, 2009.

So it was a crazy day in Royal Oak. I really hope the four of us, being Amy, Betsy, Nathan, and I, get an apartment together! So much funny crap happens between us.

We went to order pizza from Green Lantern, the BEST pizza ever, and we are arguing what to put on it since we had a coupon for and XL pizza with two toppings and Nathan wanted a veg and Betsy wanted more meat.  That problem solved itself when we called and the guy said that the coupon isn’t valid anymore, but we’d get the same price for the same stuff if it was only a one topping pizza, so there you go. Then when Nathan is ordering it, the guy asks if we want round or square, and Betsy, who is taking a dump, swings open the bathroom door and says “No, no, no, no, no, we are NOT getting a square pizza.” And then we all crack up. 

While Betsy is on the toilet she runs out of toilet paper, so she asks for more, so I went to look and every time you opened the closet in the hallway, it would open the door to the bathroom, since they are connected. So she kept yelling asking us why were opening the door. Nathan eventually found some more toilet paper being stored downstairs for emergencies.

We go to pick up the pizza and Betsy and Nathan went in to get it, and since Nathan put the child lock on when we went to Wallmart the other day, he had to open the door for Betsy, and Amy was saying “Aw, it probably looks so nice that he’s opening the door for her,” and then you hear Betsy saying “Kiss my ass,” and the guy in the car next to them was giving them the strangest look. And then when they went inside, Nathan plopped down on the bench, not leaving Betsy any room to sit down, and must have said something smart, because Betsy smacked him upside his head.

Then we went home and had an amazing meal, and somehow Amy, Betsy, and I started talking about wrestling, which went out for hours. We talked about Lita and Stone Cold, and old matches and everything. We only stopped because Kourtney and Khloe take Miami came on so we went and watched that.  Then we went out and had a bonfire, or... attempted to have a bonfire.  The big log in the bowl would NOT catch on fire, probably because we were smothering the fire with all the paper that we were burning. But oh well.  We were having fun just sitting out there talking. Then when we gave up trying to light the fire, we went inside and went to bed, but while we were laying there we were playing “Guess the WWE theme song,” which was fun, expect for Nathan since he never watched wrestling.


August 31, 2009.

So, today Nathan woke up before Amy, Betsy, and I of coarse, and then he came in to wake us up and did so by playing “Best of Both Worlds” and smacking Amy and Betsy’s ass.  What a great wake up, haha.  For some reason he let me sleep for another half an hour, and thats what is so great about him! 

When I finally got up, I went out to the living room and ate some grapes and strawberries and watched Ellen with Amy and Betsy.  Nathan was giving himself a haircut, which turned out--- ehhh....  He went to trim around his ears and cut off his sideburns completely, right up to his ear.  It looked so goofy, so then, so he wouldn’t have such a big contrast with the rest of his hair, he shaved the rest of his head really short. Now you can’t really tell he botched it.  In fact, he looks really cute with this short hair! :)

Back to the living room, Amy was talking about if we all went by our middle names, we would sound like old people. With the names Allen, Jeffery, Grace, and Ann, I think she’s right!  Then The View came on and Betsy wanted the change the channel because she didn’t want to listen to those “cackling hens!” Haha!

On the way home, we went to Krispy Kream donuts and we ordered three and the lady gave us 6, for the price of 3! How awesome! We also went to Staples for the "penny sale," which must have ended since there was nothing for a penny!

I went shopping for stuff for school today with my mom and grandma. I ended up spending $129! That’s for school supplies the notebooks and pens and it’s also for personal care stuff, like shampoo and toothpaste, etc. Not bad.

College in 3 days. :’(
How fucking depressing.



HAHA.

Amy, Betsy, remember at Bets' house the other night when we were talking about wrestling again, and we mentioned how every 6 months or so we somehow end up talking about "the good 'ol days"? Here it was!! Haha.

Also, Nate, this was when Amy and Betsy spent the night, and the night Amy threw Charlie across your room, so this is the solidifying proof that Charlie was NOT left at Michigan Adventure! Therefore, something must have happened at your house!

I love reading old posts about our shenanigans! So funny!
