But that's beside the point. I previously did a Dorm Wish List post, and now I'm going to do a post about school supplies I really like that I want or need.

Title: All Torn Up
Genre: Experimental Drama
Year Produced: 2009
Level of Education: High School, Senior Year
Summary: Domestic violence is a problem our society has yet to eliminate. It hurts many parties —parents and children, wives and husbands— but the most painful part about it is when it occurs between siblings: brothers and sisters especially. We think our family members could never do something so horrible because they are supposed to love us and protect us. How do we fight back? How can we believe it will all be ok in the end? How can we still love the people who hurt us for no good reason?
Additional Notes: 16mm Black & White film.
Soundtrack: “Already Over” by Red
So what is this post about, you ask? Well, you shouldn’t really have to ask if you read the title, but that’s okay. We all have our goldfish moments. Trust me. I had to look at the title to remind myself what I was writing about. Har har. =)
I adore clothes put together like this. Patchwork pieces are so refreshing and can look retro but really are quite futuristic in my head. They can be so flattering and so fun, and are definitely conversation starters. The best part about them is how playful they can be. I have a mild obsession with children’s games and I’m openly envious that they have Arts & Crafts every day, which this style of clothing reminds me of.

I’m sure many of you have heard “Hook Me Up” by The Veronicas. My boyfriend is the reason why I enjoy their music and because of him, I have the inspiration to start a new chapter in my life and you guys have a new post full of sarcasm and unbridled joy to make your day. Oh, yes, my boyfriend listens to The Veronicas. No, he doesn’t hide that fact. And yes, he listens to Abba, as well. Sigh. People are so picky about men these days…
The meaning of this song can be debated as you wish, but I think this is one of the few songs off the album that isn’t brimming with sexual energy. Although, it can be argued that the music video contains what the lyrics are lacking.
Now, mind you, the first verse is really the only important one to this post, which is about starting over at a point in life when people, possessions, and lifestyle become tiresome and lack the true representation of the person.
I reached this point roughly one week and four days ago. During the past week, I’ve essentially felt like the first verse of the song:
“I’m tired of my life.
I feel so in between.
I’m sick of all my friends.
Girls can be so mean.
I feeling like throwing out
everything I wear.
Starting over new
‘cause I’m not even there.”

I am obsessed with "Dream Here (With Me)" by Oomph! right now. I love imagining a collection of my fashion and surrealism photos playing in a slideshow to this song. I adore Oomph! I decided I would take German this fall semester in college just because I love the way the lead singer, Dero, makes it sound. German bands are quite entertaining when you can’t understand a word they’re saying. I also love his casual style, sans piercings.
Do you guys have a song stuck in your head right now?

I suppose you could say some people are really into perfume. Everyone has their own obsession, and some happen to like the scents of dozens of bottles or like to smell different every day, every week, etc. I went to high school with a girl who collected perfumes, and to this day I have no idea how she afforded some of the bottles in her collection.
So this post will cover perfumes I own and then I’ll open up and ask you guys to share your favorite perfume(s). =)
