i can't see where i am going

hello and welcome to the first episode of Patty Cakes: The Teen Years. Today we will be covering the topic of teen melodramatics. angst angst angst angst angst. and more angst. over things that may seem inane to you like shoelaces and trees and fingernails. we'll now be taking a short break-

hokai. first day back today after break and it's absolutely freezingfreezingfreezing (we're talking 10 degrees at the beginning of autumn) and i'm just so stuck. two weeks off and i'm so not ready to face catty teenage girls and concert band rehearsals, nor am i ready to start my visual arts major work next week or go outside in the short sleeved tee shirt and skirt comprising my school uniform. i just want to stay under the covers listening to yo la tengo and possibly rise at midday to watch the breakfast club and have a cup of tea then go back to staking out under the doona. all this makes me feel like such a silly clueless teenager, but i don't care.

i swear, the only thing going to get me through this week is the fact that it is Wes Anderson week (thanks Phomboneous). heck, yes.

and maybe if i could make shadow puppets as ace as these.

  1. Three cheers for spending days in bed with tea and yo la tengo! I really do hide from the world sometimes. Oh well. Yay! I'm so glad that you are glad that it is Wes Anderson week! It was really a no-brainer. people at my school think Rushmore is just a mountain too.
    :( They have no idea what they are missing.
