This picture was taken at Sandia Peak while I was in New Mexico! New Mexico was pretty awesome, seriously...the people are mad friendly and it's just quite beautiful.

And seeing snow for the first time in my life is always a plus!

Feel free to check out the rest of the picture set at my Flickr: flickr.com/photos/chromachord New Mexico set! :)

I just read the finale of the InuYasha manga...

It was a bit underwhelming, but hey. At least I know what went down.

InuYasha <3.

Lord, this was such a "mature" post.

The Stella has been sighted. Although there are no very recent pictures of her, we have provided you with a picture taken in early May, presenting the Stella in typical silly behavior. The picture was taken by the significant other of the Stella, the Damian.

The reason I haven't been posting is because I haven't been well. The truth is that I've had a major episode of depression since November and I'm trying to deal. But it's not really working. I don't know when I'll be back, but I hope everyone is okay and having a good Christmas.

Mood: cold

So many fashion posts in such a short time...

Couldn't help myself, joined the Marc Jacobs community. x.x Marc is love.

Damn, I've seen the movie Stick It way too many times already. I wish I could do gymnastics. Or better said, I wish I had the body to do gymnastics. Damn.

Subject:And it burns burns burns.
Mood: tired

Holy crap I haven't written anything here since when?

I'll do my best to post more frequently in here...it's just that most of my time is consumed by papers and reviews and meetings. Guh.

Buuuut you can go to chromachord.blogspot.com, which is updated more often.

I know. I suck. Poor LJ.

And this whole "not buying anything in October" plan is equal parts good and horrifying. I want a pair of Elie Tahari shoes (or the Yves Saint Laurent ones I saw on eBay, guh) and I want to buy my boyfriend a random present. Oh well. I can wait till November, right? (I might sneak a bubble skirt I saw on sale *whistles*)


I've managed to save around 500 dollars for "The Cambridge Fund" aka, holy shit Stella needs money to go to Cambridge :D So this worked then.

And Walk The Line is awesome, dammit. Love is a burning flame!

End randomness!

The smell of gasoline is asphyxiating me right now. I went to the gas station to fill up the tank, and the pump I stopped at, well, the previous customer left a gasoline puddle of significant size there. '.'

Please don't light anything around me. *highly flammable*

Anyway. Very upset because of this budget shit going on in Puerto Rico. Highly incapable government that completely squandered our funds. Why do we live here? Why?

Well, no, that's not the question.

The real question is why are people stupid enough to vote for people they know are incompetent.

Damn you, Neo!

Whoa, I'm leaving work in exactly 17 minutes. Score!

Lately, I've been sitting and wondering a lot about how much things have changed, and how visceral certain things have become. I can't live without Damian. I honestly can't. He's just made me a much better person. I smile, I look forward to things. I get shit done. Which is good. He makes me realize that life is a beautiful thing sometimes.

(You can puke now.)

(Ok, stop puking, back to the post.)

I don't know why or how it happened, but I just can't picture my future without him. :/ And I think it's amazing. I sit and wonder why and I want to understand it, but I'm also happy knowing that, poof, it just happened and it's okay and it's awesome.

I think the main reason why I feel so floored by all of this is because he was my friend before anything else happened. And I couldn't picture him any other way. So to be this way now is such a dichotomy for me. Sure, back then my feelings occasionally oscillated into the dangerous "omGIhaveacrushonmybestfriend" territory, but generally I managed to keep them separate and date other people and etc. I marvel and wonder at how the lines have crossed. I just saw him as a friend. And now I turn into a puddle of organic goo when he looks at me.

(Ok, FINE, I'll give you people barf bags *gives*)

I just think it's odd. '.' I don't understand it. Someone please help this poor clinical soul understand. '.'

Subject:This is all your fault.
Mood: awake

Yup, your fault, Zeynep.

This morning I dreamt that I'd been dating D for a while, but then decided to dump him. Why? I don't know, that's something only my dream self can answer. I then started dating Andrew McCarthy (very 80's, I know). McCarthy was more than affectionate and sweet, but I felt bad and guilty as hell.

For some reason, we were going to go to the Olympics in China, and when we got there, I couldn't stop thinking about D, so I literally ran all over the Olympics place until I found him. >.> The end. Zeynep, this is all your fault..your post influenced my subconscious!

In other news, I went shopping yesterday. And I actually got stuff. The original purpose was to try to find something for D's upcoming birthday, but I found nothing, so, on to the ladies section of the store. Oooh boy. I got an Express winter coat for five dollars! :O Someone, invite me somewhere cold! Other scores include a Zara box jacket, 50's style, which totally enamored me, three cookbooks, an African American Art book, and three shirts. Wee! I feel accomplished, my closet feels enriched. I'll take pictures when I don't look like a crazy person with her hair sticking out in all directions.

The sad story of my life: 22 years old and no credit whatsoever. But this will be rectified soon, I hope. Though, I'll probably be too terrified to actually use my credit card. >.> Heh.

Off to work!

Subject:It ain't fair, lady.
Mood: sleepy

I've contemplated making the jump full time to LJ on several occasions. I get easy flickr access, I can make my posts private if I don't particulars to see them. So many advantages. On the other hand, I can only do my own layouts if it's a paid account, and that's not so appealing. I may not be skilled in the layout arts, but I like making my layouts. Specially if I pretend to be a graphics artist/designer in the future.

Oh well. I guess for now, I'll keep having two. :/

Last night, I decided to get ingredients to make hummus and dolmades. They didn't have vine leaves, so the dolmades are scratched, which is a shame, since I really like them. This is all D's fault, for taking me to that Mediterrasian restaurant. Hm.

Also, I saw My Fair Lady today. As usual, Audrey Hepburn is love, but I was dissatisfied with the misoginism of the script. Come to think of it, most of the films of that era are male-centric. I hate that...I could definitely write a paper on that. When I finished watching it, I started thinking of Audrey's other films. And then of Hitchcock. Then again, Hitchcock was a confirmed chauvinist pig who decimated all women, except Grace Kelly.

There is another lilly about to bloom in the arrangement D gave me. <3

I'm sleepy and I feel fluffy.



My breasts were very tender the past two days. I asked my several people about this, and they commented that this was normal, premenstrually speaking. Now, I ask this: is it normal for premenstrual characteristics to change? I never got breast tenderness, that I can recall, until now. It scared me quite a bit because I'd never experienced it and I thought something was wrong. :/ I'm reticent of going to a doctor because I've had bad experiences with my past two gynecologists. Bleh. (Yeah yeah, I know, being irresponsible.)

I miss my boyfriend. '.' This is silly, I know, but I've grown accustomed to falling asleep with him by my side. His perfume lingers on the pillow, and whenever I go into that room, I just miss him. Guh. I was never this fluffy and sentimental, I swear. >.>

Or maybe I was and I hid it from everybody. Even myself. Ah!

People, you can stop laughing now. End post. >.>

Flowers and a card..flowers and a card! That's all it takes to make me happy tomorrow. If there's a present thrown in, that would be cool too. But, flowers and a card...

Simple, no? I just needed a geeked out look to match my geeked out Mac. W00tness.

Ignore the serious look on my face. I was at work and I was freezing. o.o (The fact that I was freezing does not excuse me ugly mug...xD)

Still as long as it was before, just snipped the ends, and got bangs. Wee! Let's see how long before I just want to pin them up. xD

By the way, Zeynep, I have an AIM account now. May I add you? :O

Subject:Memoirs of a Moron.
Mood: worried and tired

I hate it when I have arguments with my boyfriend. Specially when they're caused by my stupid insecurities.

Everytime I realize that I like him, that I really do love him, my self-defense mechanisms go on high alert and pick an argument over anything. Even ketchup. Dammit. I just flip out and want to hide because I think it can't be real...and we're going on six months already. Sheesh. I don't want to do this to him, or to myself, it just causes unnecessary stress and drama. You'd think it would be easy to embrace a good, honest, working relationship, but no. When you're used to shitty relationships, good ones scare you.

God bless that man, cause God knows how much I put him through. (Ok, I'm making myself sound like an evil wench, I'm not, I'm just a flake.)

So anyway, I got my new baby in the mail today. Yuki, as my new 12 inch Powerbook is called, has already settled in nicely into the Biscuit Network, though I suspect Hiro (the desktop) is jealous. I'm already snuggled in bed with Yuki, using the wifi, and I think my dad's jealous. Mwahaah.

I'm so tired right now...it's been a long day...work, then a festive dinner at Keyla's, and then dealing with Yuki (trouble connecting to the wifi), so it's time for bed.

*curls up into a ball with Yuki next to her xD*
