- I would like to see Hanson in concert.
- I like the new song by Pink. It's my jam... no, not really. But I do like it.
- I've never had a cool haircut.
- When I was 16 I really wanted to be one of those cool merch girls... usually the girlfriend of one of the band members. She was always really cool and indie but kinda mean. Been there, done that. Now, sometimes I wish I was 16 again. Sometimes.
- I don't really know a thing about computers. I know how to use word, excell and itunes. That's it.
- Boy Meets World is still one of my favorite shows.

Me... again with the hair.
I'm loving this perspective.
We should be friends.
For real though.
I love new friends.

-I'm trying to be healthier. And draw more in my art journal. I didn't draw this... and I don't drink beer.
-I love buttons.
-I love this dress. It reminds me of Betsy Johnson... only a little less cray cray.
Dear sad friends,
Know that I love you and that it's okay to be sad sometimes. Also, know that you wont be sad forever, even if it seems like that right now.
-a gocco (actually, I think my parents may be getting me this for Christmas)

-Laura Marling- (seen right) is basically incredible. She's only 18, but she's definitely worth checking out.
-We Are Scientists- My favorite of their songs is "After Hours"
-The Submarines- One of the band members is the great-granddaughter of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
-The Beggars' Guide- It's folky and sad and beautiful. However, some of the songs start to sound the same.
-Chuck Ragan-Lead singer of Hot Water Music, but I think he sounds better on his own. He plays the harmonica and the banjo... what could be better?
-Wild Sweet Orange- Okay, I know I talk about them all the time... but I love them. And who knew such a great thing could come from the state of Alabama?
-Project Runway- Alright, I'm 100% glad Leanne won. Kinley is so RUDE... but she can pull off red lipstick, so she's alright in my book.
-Tyra Banks- Don't judge yet. There aren't many famous people I dislike more than Tyra. Anyway, a girl I went to high school with was on the Tyra show this week. She's 23 and just had her first haircut. Exciting huh? No.
-The Office- Seriously Jan? Don't be a jerk.

Okay, this isn't the best picture. I actually think he's really cute in Superbad... even with the crazy facial hair. I'd totally date him. Also, I really like his speaking voice but I haven't really figured out why.
4. Michael Cera-
AH! Crush! I'm not the biggest fan of his high-pitched voice... but I can live with that.
Mmmm... I love a musician. I also love his hair and I don't mind the mustache or eye liner.
