My grandmother gave me this shirt when I was 14.

Also, here are some things that have been on my mind the past month...

"I wonder how many starving children we could have saved instead of having the Super Bowl and that insanely gratuitous half time show. I bet we could have cured cancer and invented teleportation and resurrected unicorns by now if it weren't for this crap. Just sayin'."

"Valentine's Day is only fun when you're a single cynic or dating a romantic. Otherwise it's just unnecessarily disappointing and way too pink."

"You know you've reached another level in your relationship when you can floss the broccoli out of your teeth with your boyfriend's freshly plucked facial hair."

"I just applied for a job in Social Work: What working in the fashion industry + watching too much Law & Order: SVU will do to you."

"Every day is gone so quickly. And each one equally as empty. When all else fails, at least I have a cat to spoon."

"I just had to give the ladies in abercrombie a simple math tutorial when returning something for work. Three of them couldn't figure out something that I realized just from overhearing their conversation. I think the intense cologne fumes in there are starting to eat away at their pretty little brains."

"One day children will no longer exist. We will be birthing tiny, robotic adults, painted in makeup and hair dye and eating disorders, their innocence raped by how the internet and pop culture and technology fuels the overzealous need to be noticed and fit in at the same time. Parents that take an interest and communicate with their children, I thank you. I want to see kids laughing in trees fifty years from now. I want the imagination to be more than just a figment."

and finally...

"Spring has unearthed all sorts of confusing combos. One being Birkenstock thong sandals & fishnet stockings. It also never fails to resurrect the belly shirt. Mothers of small children not excluded."

that quote about social work and fashion is very true. it's really nice to have a job in public housing, because it's a great escape from fashion's unfortunate superficiality. it's important to stay connected to the real world.

Hi Celeste! This is Jessi Hamilton from way back in the days of Florida State. I was something like a freshman or sophomore when we met (and dating Dan Morales, only mentioned because it may help you remember!) Because I am in my last year at FSU, I've been doing lots of life research, like what I want to do with myself and where I want to live and things of that nature. So if you don't mind me blabbering about myself for a second, my goal is to ultimately ask you for a tidbit of advice. I was thinking about Brooklyn as my next place of residence because I think it would be a great place for my art and opportunities and eventually, a good place to sell and promote my art. So, you are extremely creative and spend a lot of time doing things you love, which is what I want to do, too. Which leads me, next, to that issue that keeps popping up in my mind: NYC is so expensive to live in, I don't know how anyone has time to do anything besides work like a maniac only to feed themselves, their cat, and pay rent! Basically, I need income and lotsa time for art oriented things. Basically, I am asking you, if you don't mind me picking your brain, how on earth do I do this? Do what you love, love what you do, but where is rent/food money in that oh so wise proverb? I would appreciate anything you have to offer, regarding the financial aspects of my concerns as well as the art scene in Brooklyn. Too many things are coming to mind and I don't want to turn your blog into a therapy session, so here is my e-mail: if you would like to get back to me there. Sorry for exploding your blog, and thank you!

I have to say that I have been reading a few of your post in your blog. You bring out a lot great points and I do agree with a lot of them but I ove the way you write it's funny.I think people will put more atenttion to serious topics written in a funny way than just writing serious at the end of the day we all know that there is so many cracks in our society that laughter it's a good start to change something :) Keep in touch.x
