our white house

pre-christmas decor explosion. it's looking festive here now.

i think my hair is blonde until i stand next to olivia.
and i think my hair is brown until i stand next to the rest of them.
hair color identity crisis. who am i!?

brain-dead today

you know that awkward moment when your professor (aka the smartest man in the world) asks you what your favorite book is, and all of a sudden your mind goes blank and you can't think of a single title, let alone if you actually know how to read or not?

and then 5 minutes later you are able to think of at least 20 great books you have read that all would have been great answers?

hashtags that would be appropriate in this scenario: foreheadslap, starstruck, dumbdumbgeorgemichael

sunday night blues

thanksgiving break was most awesome. 
and right now i sort of have the sunday night blues x10.

do you get the sunday night blues?
the weekend is winding down, and everything you have to do the coming week enters your brain and you get a little stressed and depressed.
and then you have to go to bed at a normal hour because you have to get up at sunrise,
when all you really want to do is stay up late watching movies.
that doesn't happen to you every sunday night? oh, just me then. cool.

[deep breath] here's to another school/work week! we can do this! [high five-ing myself]

my first and last one direction post (probably)

last night, my sister jamie, my mom and i played "snog, date, dump, marry, brother" with the 1D boys,
 and i said i would marry niall.
jamie wasn't quite ok with me saying that, and assured me that niall was all hers and i better keep my distance.

she may have a fit, but i just want to immortalize this moment:

i have it written in digital ink. "jamie wants to share niall with me."
looks like he isn't all yours anymore, james!

she meant to just share this photo with me.
and i may or may not have spit some water out when i saw it.
uh oh.

for the record, i would snog harry, date liam, dump louis, marry niall, and want zayn as my brother. let it be known.

i'm excited to sleep in a few times.
i'm working on a commercial today starting in a few hours, and i'll be home at 4am tomorrow.

is a french word that means fortress.
and an awesome awesome band.

i'm obsessed with this song. i listened to every version possible on youtube today. this acoustic one is one of my favorite performances of it, but this normal one is stellar too. 
that lead singer has a pretty amazing voice. and amazing hair. ah.

if you like imagine dragons/killers/fleet foxes/beirut/etc, give bastille a listen.

november 6th

lisa mitchell is my november 6th tradition. i listened to her whole album "wonder" at work today because of one song. clean white love.

"i gave my heart on the morning of november 6th..."

hearing the actual date in a song (or movie, etc) is really cool.
also the whole album is good and sounds like my junior year of high school.

THIS website is what's up. it's for people like me who think rainy days are the best days. 
i open this website in a new tab instead of listening to music sometimes....
now every day can be a rainy day!

my weekend consisted of:

having a really bad cold. 
completely losing my voice.
working on sets for about 28 hours.
two 3:30am wake ups in a row = not that much sleep.
furnishing an entire house from scratch.
planning with my fellow art team members what would happen if all the film majors got stranded LOST style.
legitimately thinking that tim riggins' truck was at our second location.

after wrapping on saturday night, proceeding to sleep for 18 straight hours.
still being sick.
editing a documentary.
and catching up on homework.

it was kind of a weirdly awesome weekend.
and the same thing is going to happen next weekend too.
bring it on.
(except i could do without the nasty cold next time, 
please and thank you).

early times for me tomorrow and saturday.
just looking at this call sheet makes me tired.
but at least i'm getting up to work on a movie and not something lame!
