"Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.”"

Well this is perfectly delightful, thank you :)

Summer lovin’.

My summer calendar is full and I couldn’t be happier.

Palm Springs with my mom and sis. L.A. photoshoots. Bey and Jay. Camping in the Redwoods with the boyfriend. Vegas. Family reunion in Michigan. Art Pop Gaga nonsense. Turning 28. And Candace is threatening to have a roller disco birthday.

I’m kicking summer off early with an all day skate session slash 90’s sleepover party with my ride-or-die LA babe Sadé tomorrow. Why not? The weather already has.

It’s been a while since I’ve been free to wander or felt truly young. I’ve got the sun on my face and lightning under my skin. Bring on summer.

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."

Length check.

Someone asked me recently how long my hair “really” was now. I blew it out to make it easier to trim tonight, so here’s the answer. I prefer the post-work, hat hair, wind waves I got today but it’s always crazy to see how much I favor my mother when my hair is straight. 1 year, 3 months.
