on taking a sad day...
You look like you still have questions. Let me help you out: I’m broke. I didn’t sleep last night. Everyone forgot my birthday. My best friend isn’t speaking to me. I’m not wearing any makeup. I just broke up with someone. The weather is bumming me out. I’m PMSing. I was out drinking until three hours ago. Someone died. I hate this job. I hate you. Pick three of those and abstain from asking me...
diy: cape lift
evvverrryoonnee loves a good deal, and i’m no exception. after the holidays i scour marshall’s and tj maxx looking for the most on trend, lowest priced garment i can find. cape in point [get it… cape instead of case, because i’m talking about a cape!!!] here’s a quick diy on giving items a little customizing tweak to get what you want. i had yet to find a...
me: If you are the kind of person who goes on a thirty-five minute tangent about how “OH MY GOD I NEED MY COFFEE I AM SUCH A WRECK WITHOUT IT UGH I WOULD DIE IF IT WEREN’T FOR MY COFFEE AMIRITE?!?” you need to not only get a grip on the meaning of the word “need,” but you also need to re-asses the hilarity of those webcomics you love to post everywhere that echo your inability to function without a morning cup of bean residue. Talking about how you ~*~omg totes need ur caffeine to function~*~ is the conversational equivalent of reading a Cathy comic. [thought catalog]
you looove cathy
Mahalia: i used to try to draw cathy comics among other comics....and care bears
me: YOU DID?! i thought you hated her!
Mahalia: yea, i do
Mahalia: but when i was 7 and i didnt get any of the jokes i thought i liked her
i must have been the weirdest fucking kid
i think i had an adult mind as a child.
post 100! wish i thought of this
hilarious and oh so true post by thought catalog please read, it’s beyond worth it. If anyone tells you they can’t insert themselves into at least three of these scenarios… they are not only lying, but let’s face it, kinda lame with no sense of humor. my favorite scene is below, but this does not get you out reading the others. Activity: Entering hour 2 of a heated...
watch: extremely loud & incredibly close
[UPDATE] i cried myself into dehydration. it was amazing. i can’t wait to see thomas horn, the actor that played 9 year old oskar [appropriately named], give is oscar speech. if you need a good cry and are looking for a place where no one will judge you, i beg you to go see this film. it is beyond moving!!!
fermented grapes & acrylic paints
my sigma kappa [yes, i was in a sorority and LOVED every minute of it] ladies & i got together to celebrate christmas with a little wine and design this year. we had the best time together, laughing, drinking, and hamming it up for every one there. the assignment was easy. you bring the wine they provide everything else! we arrived to a semi blank canvas, a plethora of paint, brushes and...
diy: one night stand
i had this little night stand that looked sorrtt of like this [below] that needed a face lift. i picked out creamy cucumber by olympic paint at lowe’s & went to town! step one. i scuffed up the paint with some sandpaper & painted the first two coats. step two. let it dry over night & paint one last coat. step three. change out the knobs. voila! [it looks blue in...
first things first, i need to update my room. the mariana that lived in this EXACT same room 2.5 years ago is not the same mariana that lives here now. for starters, i’ve had the same color scheme since 2006… yes. i was 20 when i picked out the black, [hottt] pink & green motif… ew. i know! but i can’t say i’m totally against pink & green… i’m...
i moved :/
i woke up the day of my 27th birthday realizing i was in a complete rut. it wasn’t a depressing realization, i just knew i needed to figure out a plan for the rest of my 20s / life. it was a no brainer that i needed to go back to school, but leaving nyc was something i never planned on doing. ever. but it just didn’t make sense financially to stay up there & go to school. nc state...

greensboro's balls-- nc tales part II
the sunset hills neighborhood in greensboro decorates their trees with these beautiful, bright light balls every christmas. driving through it is so amazing! no other lights are on & the trees are lit up, it’s magical! these pictures don’t do them justice, but they really were a sight to see… people are encouraged to donate canned goods to benefit the nc food banks....
'give it up'
there are people i should be distancing myself from, there are insecurities about myself i know are just cattle prods to make myself feel like shit. there are toxic things in my life that aren’t worth the time of day, arguments i shouldn’t start or have, the last drinks at the bar i should cut off, attitudes that are indulgent because they are self-pitying. the judgements i am quick to make, the...
