Young and the Reckless

I've been feeling rebellious and reckless within the last month and I just realized it. I came back from a week's vacation from the day job, not sure if it did me any good. Normally, I'll take time off to drive somewhere random but this time, I went to Montecito for a couple of days and relaxed. The rest of my time spent was mulling around the house with no motivation. With hopes of getting things done with the shop, I listed but two pairs of shoes! Going to be bed at 2 am and waking up at 10:30 am was my schedule pretty much, unless it was a Friday or Saturday night, then it was home by 3:30 am.

I come back to work and my boss gives me the chance to work full time for the next two months, (I've been working 30 hrs/week) so I take it. I always feel more fulfilled when I have a lot going on and I am a busy body. So this is good, I like this change in my schedule. I'll have to get up earlier and stay later. I'll have less time to worry about boys!

About the reckless part- have you ever felt like giving in to a self-destructive mode? Just to remind yourself you are still alive? Let's just say I am so greatful today to be in good health and have awesome friends and family around me. I'm really blaming Lady Gaga's video for Just Dance and Sienna Miller's portrayal of Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl for my recent actions. Why? Because I can and this segways into an awesome you tube video I found recently.

It's a make up tutorial to imitate Edie. Because we know I love the 60s.



Here are some of my favorite photos of Edie, found through Flickr, because I have the attention span of a 3 year old:

Edie! Oh I looove Edie! I saw Factory Girl this year and I got completely sad, even though I basically knew the story... You should see "I shot Andy Warhol" if you haven't already. It's not so much about Edie as it is about The Factory in general and the '60s;it's basically the story of Valerie Solanas, possibly the most radical feminist in history. It's quite interesting. I'm glad to hear you had a little vacation! I'll be back in Bucharest by the end of next week and I'll start preparing the package for you (e-mail details soon) ^______^
