i see the colours, the colours


Hey blogosphere, lovely readers and visitors and people i adore

'Sup?

my sister is in this shot = = she turned 9 on april 27th!

Got this amazing drapy dress thingy a while ago. I still don't know how to wear it, but I love it when I do!
The tribal print makes me feel so happy, for some reason.

I watched part of Dance Me Outside yesterday, and it was so interesting... and I'm a little jealous. The First Nations have such an amazing culture, and even in modern times, they lead lives entertwined with their traditions, and I think this is admirable and inspiring.

Well Dance Me Outside is not about traditions.

Dance Me Outside is set on a reservation in Northern Ontario, following the lives of a group of teens. A girl within that group is murdered by a white man and... I didn't get to finish watching the movie because of my mother wanting to watch the news! so if anyone knows what happened, and is willing to give a detailed description full of humour, wit, and emotion, please do so in the comment box, or email me. (it doesn't have to be full of humour... or wit... but emotion is welcome.)

It's a funny movie and a little brash maybe, but definitely a good fun movie.

I'm planning on trekking places to find the book (it's a collection of short stories) if possible, but I know it won't be the same. Movies based on books and the actual books are never quite the same...



I think these pictures are beautiful. Johnnys Bird makes life seem so liveable, and smoking seem so glamorous.

  2. Thanks for the book recommendations and it would be great if you did that every time you comment! :D
    I love those photos of you, those glasses really fit you. And about the dress, I really like it! It's good to have one of those baggy dresses that might seem like... um, a bag, but actually make you look fragile and elegant. Oh, and the shoooes! <3

    Hahah, it's funny how you're posing and that woman is arraging flowers right next to you. :))

    I hadn't seen that movie so no humorous and witty story here.
    And I LOVE LOVE LOVE those last photos and totally agree with you, especially with the part about smoking.

  11. Oooops!! Hope your sister wasn't mad! hahahah, I feel really embarrased right now, especially because you wrote that it's you nine year old sister below the photo! hahah, how didn't I see that!? :D

    I read The Little Prince, but i'm planning to read it again any time soon. I didn't read those other books but I'll put them on my list. Thank you a lot! :)

  12. I wanted to ask you something, what is a Deathnote and how do you keep it? :D I hope this is not something common and something everybody should know because then I would be double embarrased! :D

  19. WAHHHHHHHH i love the dress. you know, we can always trade. i'll send you my pants if i get the dress.

    UGHHH. I know what you mean, all these pictures make smoking look soooo coool. when really, its probably not.

    DANCE ME OUTSIDE sounds cool. but i dont think i have patience for older films. really. i know its very narrowminded of me. but i like colour, and i like cool effects.

    but you know what, it kinda feels like i have NO idea what will happen in ch.4. NOT A CLUE.

    also, i love your outfit. specially the shoes. great contrast!

  22. Hahahahha, you need to treat your sister like A PERSON?! That must be SO hard for you! :P But I get what you mean, my brother is all the same!

    Uuuuh, Deathnote sounds really interesting, I can't wait to watch it all. But i think it'll have to wait because I have so many things to dooo! life is too short.

    And also, i hate blogger right now because I left a huuuuge comment on Rachel's blog and now it's gone -.-'
    Not that you care :D

    Have fun!
