Awesome Salvador Dali Quotes

"Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure - that of being Salvador Dali."

"In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob."

"Let my enemies devour each other."

"I don't do drugs. I am drugs."

"Take me, I am the drug; take me, I am hallucinogenic."

"What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust."

Quasi MFA post, Pics

Cj took this picture of the heavily grafitti'd subfloor at CalArts. Man do I want to go there.

So, I'm fairly sure at this point that I didn't get into Brown. I haven't heard either way yet, but their second interviews/panel directing sessions take place this weekend and I doubt they would have waited this long to let me know.

It's okay, but it does make me nervous about the remaining two west coast schools. UCSD interview on Wednesday. I'm flying down and back in the same day - I feel so jet set.

Helped out with a bookstore event tonight that I thought was going to be low key, but was in fact THE EXACT OPPOSITE with crazy people, ticket sales, all sorts of borrowed chairs and a packed house. My feet are killing me, but at least I'm good at what I do.

Would like to get into an MFA program though so I can do shows instead.


Picture of me.

If there's one thing I love...

... it's shoes. But there's a second thing I love, and that is hats.

Yes, I am a fashion whore. Always have been, can't help it.

Besides finding plenty of hats by typing in "cocktail hat" in the search form on Etsy, I also found this great website called Hatagories with a whole huge selection of awesome hats.

I'm secretly hoping people will wear big fancy hats to my wedding.

Here are some of my favorites:




"Pillbox Lotta-Mint"


I also love tiny top hats. XD

Of course when I post, what comes the same day?

Rejected from Yale. S'ok, was kind of expecting it.

Where I'm at:

Brown (Second Interview?)
CalArts (Admission Decision)
Sarah Lawrence (First Interview - Date?)
UCSD (First Interview 2/27 Admission Decision)
MFA Update

I still have not yet heard from any of the MFA programs I applied to.

This is probably not a good thing, but I remain optimistic.

More later.

Sicko Fodder

I called my insurance company today to see what the procedure was for sending in my Birth Control receipts (this is what the pharmacy said I needed to do). I talked to this woman who kept going "Ummmmm... Uh...." before she said anything, and when she did, it was "Oh, we don't cover BIRTH CONTROL prescriptions. Only MEDICALLY NECESSARY ones."

"Oh. Well, since I have you on the phone, I wanted to make sure that I'm covered for my gynecologist appointment." (It said in the brochure that gynecological care was covered)

"Ummm... Wellll... what state are you in? Oh, it looks like we only cover the Pap Test in California."

"Let me get this straight. You cover the Pap Test, but not the actual visit to the gynecologist?"

"Uhhh yeah. That's right."


They are such bastards. What, am I going to do a pap smear myself and then take it in to the lab? God. This is why girls get cervical cancer.
