SALT LICK & STRIPES



I've been so out of it lately... My life just isn't exactly peaches and cream lately, but I'm trying to pull through. I'm just hoping I get on with if fast, I'm tired of feeling tired (the "sick and tired of being sick and tired" country lyrics come to mind).

Anyway, as I mentioned I love Austin, and these were taking the first time around from the two trips I made. I really love it there, but I'm still not sure if I could live there. I think part of its appeal derives from its getaway qualities.

... This was my first night's outfit...very non vacation, but very comfortable.







This restaurant is by far one of my favorites. The bbq is so good! (Even when I've been eating mostly raw/vegan/vegetarian lately, it's just so hard to turn away their BBQ!!)

In fact, when we stopped at Austin from our way back from San Antonio during the second trip, we had to stop by again. YUM!

KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD



It's been about a month since I received some not so pleasant news, and it led to my entire indifference for the world or most of it anyway. And although I'm really not into blogging full force yet, I'm practically forcing myself to post so that I can get distracted and get into it again.

So I'd figure I'd start with these wonderful pics taken at Austin. I love Austin btw. It's so relaxing and so hippie that I actually visited twice in the last two months. And I can't wait to go back.





























And Yes, we did watch Ted while we were out there.

CHARCOAL WONDERS



I am an idiot - sometimes. I did it again. I took photos of these amazing charcoal drawings, and I've no idea who the artist is. I know I found the works off of Dragon street in one of the many Oaklawn galleries. But still, I wish I knew their name.

I'm just in love with these. Hope you like them.










These really inspire me to do some drawing of my own. It's been a while because iPad drawings don't count for me (because I'm really crappy at it, but some peoples' iPad drawings have all my respect).

SKY BOUND



The other day I had a dream about having the physical ability to lift my body into the sky and fly around as much as I wanted. In fact, in my dream, my brother and I had lifted ourselves higher than the clouds because we needed to avoid being seen.

When I woke up, I was saddened by the realization that it was all a figment of my imagination. However, I really want to fly now. It felt so liberating. Of course I will never learn or have the ability to fly, and activities such as sky diving are completely out of the question, so I'll stick to my earth bound feet to carry me around this world. But still, the idea of flying sure has kept me up lately.

YOUNG MAN



Found at Jak & Jil. I want one lol.

NIGHT LIGHTS



I have to admit that I thouroughly enjoy taking pictures at night with the shutter open and just twirling my hands to see what I end up with.

The above one is a melting pot of three pictures. I'd like to blow up one of the pictures below to frame it, but I'm not sure which one I'd pick.







I know plenty of people have done this before, but I think I want to beat the horse myself for a little bit.

RAILROAD CROSSING



Despite trying to ignore the truth, I'm getting old. In less than two months I'll be 28, and I feel like it'll be 30. It doesn't help that if I go out and I make it to bed by midnight, I feel like I had a great time. Whatever happened to the all-nighters I used to pull when younger? or being up till 3am watching reruns? I just can't do that at all anymore. My body is not the same. Darn! I'm turning boring!

This picture is sort of how my brain feels right now, after a 'wild' night.

SUNNY CONFINEMENT



These were taken the other day while I waited for my printer to work. Despite the fact that it's scorching hot outside, I'm always cold in my office which means I always have to have a sleeve of some sort. So this jean jacket was perfect for this dress since I had the 80s in my mind when I got dressed.





This is a picture of how my dress was ballooning up when I was driving since I had the window down. At first, I didn't notice it. But once I did, I had to take a picture.

OH, THE HEAT



I can't step outside. Rather, I won't unless I absolutely have to -aka walking to car. However, this morning the emergency alarm went off in the building I work at, and suddenly, there I was roasting under the sun. It's so hot out here.

If I have to sit down and absorb some vitamin D, at least I wish I could do it fashionably like these gals.

PINK WASHED



It's Wednesday! Just two more days for the weekend. I honestly can't wait. And although it'll be a hectic time, I sure like any time away from work....

Here's some pics captured in my office. Check out the cool Med Men calendar in the back. I love Betty.

ATELIER OLSCHINSKY



When I look at these, I feel like I could get lost inside of them. So many tiny details in some of these. I think that's what draws me in - the possibilities of each one. Almost the same amazement I feel whenever I look at all the components that make up a computer.


They also make me think of a short story a read a while back about someone? falling from a building, but sort of in slow motion, and all the things that could be observed through the windows. I wish I remembered the name of the author...
