life lately.

WHAT I DID (this weekend):

{date night wif ma girlfrand}

{an epic color run}


WHAT I'M THINKING (about the debates): 


WHAT I WATCHED (when New Girl, Modern Family, and The Mindy Show weren't on):

you know those moments when time seems to slow down, you look around, and you realize that you're really living? you're living in the moment and loving every second of it? that happened approximately 3.5 times this weekend (the .5 originates from late friday night - or was it saturday morning? - that i was giggling on the floor and roommates were drawing inappropriate objects on my stomach. i was like that uncool girl everyone made fun of at that cool party, except i liked it).  sometimes i have to remind myself to do that 'living thing' more often.

my "i can't believe i'm here right now" moments:
  1. GO SEE the perks of being a wallflower RIGHT NOW.  the movie made me think, laugh, and cry all at the same time.  it also made me want to cut my hair into a pixie cut a la emma watson, for like, 3 seconds, but then i remembered i would look like an 'alfonso', and not an 'amy'.  after the movie, we rode around in the car and turned the music up, and as we rolled down the windows and passed the nashville skyline, i told myself to soak it all in.
  2. watching ingrid michaelson at the ryman.  it's so refreshing to be reminded that there are full grown chicks out there who don't take themselves too seriously, and are insanely talented yet humble all at the same time. she's inappropriate and beautiful.  listen to this song right now. 
  3. jumping on stage and dancing gangnam style in front of a thousand random nashvillians after the color run today.  i think my lungs (and my skin) are permanently tinted blue. and honey badger don't care. 
"it's much easier to not know things sometimes.  things change and friends leave.  and life doesn't stop for anybody.  i wanted to laugh.  or maybe get mad.  or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me.  i think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people.  you can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love.  you just can't.  you have to do things.  i'm going to do what i want to do. i'm going to be who i really am.  and i'm going to figure out what that is.  and we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn't do or what they didn't know.  i don't know.  i guess there could always be someone to blame.  it's just different.  maybe it's good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, i think that the only perspective is to really be there. because it's okay to feel things.  i was really there.  and that was enough to make me feel infinite.  i feel infinite."
