college days are long gone, but sometimes its fun to look back and see what foolish things i was up to. this photo happens to be me trolling around the city in the middle of the night with a couple of the sweetest weirdos i’ve ever met. we walked all over downtown, ended up in the skate park and had a blast. i love those boys, and i love reminiscing. not only does it make you grateful for where you are, but it also gives you insight into who you’re becoming. whether terrifying or exciting, we’re constantly growing. and while you can’t always control your circumstances, you can control what kind of character you develop during your circumstances. so choose to be lovely, choose to be honorable, choose to be praiseworthy, choose to be awesome. choose these, and you won’t regret what you become.
another fun day of filming. caylinda (of moglytime) and i cruised around town while having a barrel of laughs. sometimes i can’t believe i have such an awesome job and get to work with such amazing people. after all that, I had tuna sushi. now, normally I hate sushi, but that crap was delishhhh. in this moment i’m cozied up, sitting across from my bunny, watching the greatest show ever aired. hashtag…thirty rock.

p.s. boss photography by Cluney Photo
sometimes you just know about people. i saw her in a room of four hundred. you couldn’t miss her. side swept bangs that forever covered at least one eye, skinny jeans, and perfectly worn vans. i instantly knew, from where i stood in layered costume pearls and pointed black heels, she was too cool to be my friend. little did i know that the girl i admired from afar would soon become one of my dearest friends. Meggie McDonald is truly the most talented woman i have ever met. with the voice of an angel, the heart of a saint, and the humor of both jake and amir, she is everything a young woman aught to be. she is forever my inspiration, my icon, my gull.
in honor of throwback thursday, here’s a picture of my gull and i. today i stumbled upon some pretty fantastic old photos. some of which i’m totally ashamed of, some of which are totally laughable, and some with a little of both. one thing i found however, was that over the years i’ve made some pretty amazing friends. through all the weird mistakes and failures (i think we call that growth) my good friends have remained by my side. for that, i am eternally indebted to them.
p.s. you can now download Meggie McDonald’s music. and oh are they sweet delicious jams.
