LIKE A MELTED AVOCADO ON THE SHELF

+
this is my look of disapproval
featuring totally relevant design things


I decided to update my blog with the “google plus fancy blahblahblah whatever” stuff and now, everything is all weird and different.

The comments look nicer, but do those of you without Google+ still have the ability to comment? If not, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH.

Also, I can't reply to comments! I keep on replying to my ~lovely commenters~ but the replies don't show up. AAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH.

Also, (possibly the most irritating), I've automatically unfollowed every single blog I followed before! I'm sorry. I'll follow you guys again when I shouldn't be doing late physics homework... I don't hate you! AAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH.

Now, in the spirit of AAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH, enjoy these three minutes and twenty seconds of Kat Bjelland going "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH." If you aren't a huge fan of the Babes, there are a few seconds of Kim Gordon bobbing her head and being cute, which is something that everyone can enjoy.

EIGHT! EIGHT! I FORGOT WHAT EIGHT WAS FOR!

twin peaks, homies


Today, we were doing a peer critique in art class. A girl said, “When you look at a piece of art, you’re supposed to know what it’s of.”
In the hallway a while ago, a boy said, “You can only make abstract art if you’re an accomplished artist. If you’re not, you just suck at art.”
People love to make jokes about abstract art because it’s pointless and stupid.
I mean…
jackson pollock
piet mondrian
marc rothko
Jackson Pollock SUCKED until he became accomplished.




Any music that's not ~pretty~ or ~polished~ SUUUUCCCCKKKKS.



What constitutes good art? Is the point of creating things to make something "good"? To please as many people as possible? Do we try to keep things is peachy keen and neat and fake and plastic and sparkling as we can?

I don't know. I think the point of art is to express yourself. You make what you feel to make the people around you (and yourself) think and feel differently after seeing this thing. The piece of artwork may change your ideas, or just leave you feeling intrigued because you enjoyed the way the paint was layered and the colors bring back memories or something like that.

Do human beings want to be as machine-like as possible? Or, do we want to embrace ourselves, and our differences, and the world, and art of the strange shimmer in the air?

ONLY DOGS THAT PURR WEAR SMOOTHIE-SCENTED CHAPSTICK AND LICK DANDELIONS IN THE SUMMER SHOWERS


My past few blog posts have been terrible. (I don't need a sympathetic "no sweetie ur grate" because even my cat gave me a disapproving look and proceeded to bite my legs.) Blogging right now is a pretty terrible idea right now because I should really be doing homework. (It's not even funny how much I should be doing my homework right now yhrgtfiertgidfgnierjtbfjkdn)

THYME FOUR UPDAITS
I'm fourteen now! Yaaaaaaaay!

My birthday was three weeks ago--on April twenty-first. (I know I have the same birthday as Tavi Gevinson! Don't freak out on me! Oh... you're not freaking out? Well then.) My friends threw me a surprise party and it was quite possible THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.

This is a picture of the cake they baked me, courtesy of Kate's instagram:

i really love u guise
My aunts took me out for lunch to the Candle Cafe! Thanks!!!!

That's the birthday stuff. I've also stopped eating animal products (as of Earth Day, the day after my birthday.) It's super easy (for me, at least) at home. Restaurants are a different story... Waiters can be really passive aggressive and make stupid comments and stuff like that. I just think that if I wouldn't want my cat to be tossed into scathing water, I shouldn't let it be done to innocent chickens and stuff, especially if I'm going to CONSUME them afterwards. I know lots of fun stuff, but I'll save it for another time.

I went to Washington DC with my school for three days! It was SOOO MUCH FUN!

awesome shirts designed by mr. ruby
it involved waking up at 4am
i am very pretty at 4am, as you can see

we rode a bieber bus
