nueve de mayo
Hullo everybody! I am writing to you from the kitchen table of my home, sweet home. On cinco de mayo I was driving back to MD after finishing up finals. Junior year of college over? I'm a senior? Somebody please pinch me. So anyway I thought I'd wear something belatedly festive. This top was formerly a dress that belonged to my mom, but the proportions were wrong for me so my favorite aunt cropped it for me. I'm in love! The stitching is so fun and it's authentic, from one of my parents trips to Mexico. My mom's father was a part of a group which started an orphanage in Oaxaca, Mexico one of the poorest parts of the country.
I haven't been doing much of anything since being home other than interviewing on Friday. Fingers crossed about the internship, I'm supposed to hear back any time now. In other news, we have a puppy! Well actually we've had one for a few months now, but I just now met her since I've been away at school. Her name is Lila and she is the biggest sweetheart. She's 10 months old and CRAZY. She's got more energy than you would believe. It took me forever to get the one picture I have of her. And right after I snapped it, she promptly bumped her nose into the camera, now my nose hurts. Boo. haha she's a trip.
Right now she's squeaking on her chew toy and I kind of want to shake whoever invented them. Why so high pitched?? Why?
Let's see, this summer I'm also working on setting up a website for selling/displaying my artwork. I'd like to learn more about html editing and all that jazz. Wow, my nose really does hurt. Anyway, not too much else on this end. Just enjoying lazing around until work (hopefully or not hopefully?) starts. What have you guys been up to?
How can you resist this face?
