how happy is the blameless bestal's lot! the world forgetting, by the world forgot. eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd; labour and rest, that equal periods keep; "obedient slumbers that can wake and weep;" desires compos'd, affections ever ev'n, tears that delight, and sighs that waft to heav'n. grace shines around her with serenest beams, and whisp'ring angels prompt her golden dreams. for her th' unfading rose of eden blooms, and wings of seraphs shed deivine perfumes, for her the spouse prepares the bridal ring, for her white virgins hymeneals sing, to sounds of heav'nly harps she dies away, and melts in visions of eternal day.
-Alexander Pope

Son of Rambo

I discovered Son of Rambo little over a year ago, and i fell absolutely in love with it. It is about two young very different boys who both share a fondness for Rambo and make their own mini versions of the movies. It's a creative, fun, and interesting plot. I can't even describe the magnificence i find in this movie, watch the trailer and if it intrigues you enough definitely rent the movie. maybe you'll love it as much as i do.

pretty please?

I am always on the lookout for good colored pencils. ones with the perfect texture, feel, and a color for every mood imaginable. i think i may have found them. thanks to some random blog searching, i have come across Social Designer, who makes a color palette of 500 colors. This is a dream come true. What is even better is you can subscribe to pencils so they keep on coming for 20 months, 25 new colors continiously appearing at your doorstep for 20 months. what's not to love? I can only dream to aquire them all and to have this pretty little set up in my room. maybe one day i'll reach this lovely dream of mine with some help. this is any color lovers dream come true.
do you ever get that strange feeling of vuja de? not deja vu; vuja de. its the distinct sense that somehow, something just happened that has never happened before. nothing seems familiar. and then suddenly the feeling is gone. vuja de.

my so-called life

"This life has been a test. If this had been an actual life, you would have received instructions on where to go and what to do." - Angela It's time to break out one of my all time favorite shows, My So-called Life. Thanks to my beautiful cousin whitney, i have become obsessed with this show. The show was taken off the air before i was even old enough to watch it, but that may just make me love it even more. For those of you who don't know, it is set in the 90's and follows a group of three friends through their different life trials of high-school. Plus, it has amazing quotes. I love it. Every year i watch it, and i have been needing it in my life for some time now. Now that i'm all moved in and settled at my new spot for the year, i have started watching the show and have realized how much i have missed it in my life. So thank you whitney for introducing me to this marvelous show, i don't know what i would do without it.

Me, myself & i

Today while making the blog rounds i checked my sisters and saw her new post, a challenge to describe herself in 25 words. She threw out the challenge to anyone else who wanted to join the fun. What i had to do was take a picture of myself at that moment (ready for bed, glasses, retainer & all), & describe myself. So here i am in all my glory.
