guilty and gotye

...of asking amber if we were allowed to get a blood refund. i haven't felt the same without that pint.
...of skipping kickboxing class last night and pretending like it was doctor's orders, although the blood bus people only told me not to work out tuesday.
...of eating half a box of milano cookies in one sitting while watching eleven-year-old kirstin dunst kiss brad pitt. life is so unfair sometimes.
...of making fun of luna's haircut yesterday. i laughed out loud in class when amber texted this to me.
...of skipping three too many classes this week. and not feeling guilty as i cuddled in bed instead.
...of opting not to write papers when i got home from school, and instead going out on a dinner date with sarah... which then turned into a 3 hour intellectual convo/life advice sesh.
...of watching the graduate for the very first time last night and absolutely LOVING every minute of it.
...of also watching SEVEN marilyn monroe films in the past two months. i had to watch some like it hot for film class, and now i'm sort of hooked. it's hard to stop when most of her films are on netflix.
...of buying red lipstick and wishing i could pull it off like all of those beautiful hollywood actresses.

...of refusing to watch my week with marilyn because i just don't see that spark in michelle williams.
...of replaying this song 7 thousand times last week.
and loving it every time.


a pint lighter

the blood bus was on campus on tuesday!
every time i see it, i wish i could stop and donate, but i'm always late to class as it is.
luckily, our media techniques class was cancelled that day. so amber and i got starbucks coffee, perched ourselves on Landis, and enjoyed the beautiful day while we mustered up the courage to give blood.

well, originally, i was going to give blood and she was going to watch (she hates needles).
but when we got on the bus, the blood takers made it pretty hard to say no... how vampire-like of them.

sooo she did it! i'm so proud of amber for conquering one of her biggest fears!
and she maybe probably helped save a life in the process.
although i think she was more excited about the free t-shirt.
and after we were a pint lighter and a bit very lightheaded, we went to chipotle to replenish some of that iron we just gave away. but we felt delirious and funny for the rest of the night. so we stayed at home, ate chocolate, and watched interview with a vampire, in honor of blood loss.

and honestly, it made us feel better...

we decided we wouldn't mind draining our bodies dry, if this was the guy doing it.

and later, i painted my nails, to fit the theme :)

and then went to bed, listening to this.
because it was appropriate.
and because i go to bed to bon iver every night anyway :)
