I drove to Beacon today, but stopped first in Lake Mohegan (which gives me absolute fits to drive through, it stresses me out so much) to pick up my new copy of the First Folio. <3

I met up with Milton at Dia:Beacon, which was not very, aah... accessible. There was a Richard Sera piece which I of course enjoyed, an odd plywood construction against a wall that made it look like there was a big hole in the floor, + too much art we weren't allowed to get near. I find that those kinds of museums are most fun when you're allowed to take pictures in them- art about the art is more interesting than the art itself. Is that offensive, or narrow-minded? I guess I'd be annoyed if somebody thought that about my art... but my art isn't in a museum, eh?

After, we went to the Muddy Cup coffee house, which may win the prize for Best Coffee House, ever. Too bad it's half an hour away from my house. They had such a huge selection that I couldn't decide what I wanted, and a neat aesthetic. Throne-like chairs, and a good place to sit + chat quietly for a few hours, which we did.

I took the scenic route through Fahnstock state park back home, but was sad that it was so cloudy. On even just a decent night, you can see the milky way from there, and when the lake is still, it gets reflected in the lake, surrounded by tree-covered hills, + is quite breathtaking. I learned to skip stones there, actually.

Getting over it

A Well-Made Bed

So many photos of my bed lately! Well, I guess that's what happens when you're sick. Today, however, I was feeling better, + even had the energy to make my bed. I think when your bed is made, it instantly makes the whole room tidier.

I don't know why, but ever since starting college I've become a bit of a neatnick, and that tendency has just accelerated with the past semester. I always make my bed, and clean my room every night before going to sleep. I just can't think when my room is a mess.

Anyway, that weird looking white pillow in front of the doll is actually a "book bag", a cute little bag to keep (you got it!) books in. I put 'Little Women' in there, so I don't have to think about it while I'm not reading it.

Day one- again

Day one

I'm baaaaack! Here are the new rules: I'll take a photo a day, + I'll try to put them on my flickr at least every three days, and try to blog at least once a week. Mmmkay? Take your marks... go!

After a long night of (mostly) inoffensive shenanigans, Matt, Mike, Dave, Jason Zwick, Allie, Mary + I headed to the diner, for a little late morning nosh. And Matt, being the hooligan he is, looked like he was commiting some kind of intrigue behind that menu.
