5. playing favorites
let’s talk about some of my favorite things.
corgis. i mean, really. how can you not think these little guys are adorable?? sophia and i have a lot of future dog-related plans, including adopting a corgi and a goldendoodle. we’ve bought books about dog ownership, dog-sat for friends, gone to dog parks (sans dog…is that weird?), etc. now we just need the pup!
halloween. if it was more academic-setting-appropriate, i’d dress in silly outfits/costumes all the time. as a dancer, costumes have been part of my life since i was little. i think that’s one of the reasons i always loved them – i associated costumes with dance, which i love, and then came to associate them with adopting a different persona, playing someone you’re not, etc. it’s all very intriguing to me, in some way or another.
red lipstick. a recent favorite. after sophia and i scrounged around sephora, tried on 5 different kids of nail polish, and made each other laugh with horrid makeup combos, we found this. that’s right, kat von d does makeup too.
feather prints. i freakin’ love feathers. i think they’re beautiful, delicate, interesting, and complicated. to me, they’re kind of like the ultimate representation of function and freedom. i’ve been wanting to get another tattoo for a while, and i think i’ve finally found my inspiration. riverluna, on etsy, makes these incredible archival feather prints that i can’t seem to stop looking at.
active child’s “you are all i see”. a few of us are going to see active child (aka pat grossi) in may, and i’ve been immersed in his new album since we got the tickets. some favorites: playing house, ivy (an instrumental showcasing grossi’s insane harp talents), and hanging on (white sea remix) (give it a listen – via the hype machine).
as you can probably see, i’m definitely enjoying my much-needed spring break. hope you’re having a lovely saturday!
