I can’t believe it. The last time I felt actual boredom was probably in the fall of 03′ when I still lived in Mammoth. (Too cold to hike, not enough snow to snowboard, small town…you get the picture.) I hardly remember what this “boredom” feels like. I am one of those people who have a constant to-do list swimming through my mind. There is ALWAYS something I should be doing. This quirky trait that dominates my personality drives Casey nuts, he is the complete opposite of me. I envy the way he can spend the day doing whatever he feels like, without feeling complete guilt of what he should be doing. I guess that’s why we work so well together, a yin + yang. Sure, I have the new promos/new sample albums/fine art website on my list at the moment, but those things are on the constant to-do list. All the pressing matters are taken care of. As I sat at my computer this morning, making my usual rounds, I realized my subconscious list was not yelling at me to get to work. Awesome. I’m going to bask in this so-called boredom because I know it won’t be around long. In fact, it will be lucky if it even makes it to the end of the day.
I love you boredom.
On that note, I thought I would share something a little more personal. (of course I had to create something to do.) Here are a few things that I’m in love with today…
First on the list: my new shoes. I’m sweet on this color yellow lately. Just got them in the mail, can’t wait to wear em’!
Second up: the new Neko Case, Middle Cyclone. I’m a big fan of Neko. I’ve been rockin this CD all day. The best part? A 31 minute song that consists purely of the sound of crickets chirping. It reminds me of a hot summer night. Give it a listen, you might like it too.
Last, but certainly not least: robin eggs. I love easter candy. If my candy isn’t a unnatural shade of the rainbow, I won’t eat it. Oh the layers: crunchy candy shell, milk chocolate , then a malty, whooper center. I find the best time to stop eating these little eggs is when the roof of your mouth becomes raw, or your throat starts to hurt from the malt. Yum.
I’ve got a few weddings coming up, along with some engagement + portrait sessions, so stay tuned for some new work. :) Have a great weekend!
