Purge

Listening to: Just Like I Remember - Bleed the Dream
Random Thought of the Day: I finally realize why I am, much of the time, what people would call a 'people pleaser'..

I've been on a purging spree recently.
It started with the 'cleanse' (so far, not too hard to keep.. I nixed the 'no gluten' part, otherwise i'd be eating like.. nothing. but yeah.. NO THANKS TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE who keep waving stuff I can't eat in my face! >[ you know who you are.. :( )
Just now, I spent about 1.5 hours cleaning up my music library... so far i've deleted about 5 gigs of music... but I've still got lots to go!
I plan on doing the same with my clothes at some point. I realized... I  buy all this stuff that I either NEVER wear, or that I don maybe once or twice before tossing it into the back of my closet (i.e. the section of clothing that never sees the light of day). I'm probably going to donate it or something, just to rid myself of the clutter.
I did the same with my makeup a month or so ago, but that was more to make sure that I'm not using anything that's expired. However, I plan on kinda inventorying my stuff so I don't keep buying the same things.
Funnily enough, this is exactly what my mom keeps telling me, all the time: " you keep buying minutely different versions of the same thing! Why don't you check what you have before you buy more things?"
she is exactly right.

I've been finding out a lot in the last couple years that my parents are very very frequently right.
I guess it's true that you never see the wisdom in a parent's words until you're old enough to understand the rationale.

but anyways. now that i've wasted sufficient time cleaning, its time to get started on some microeconomics!

also, i just realized that i can't make private posts on blogger. thinking about migrating to wordpress..

Detox

Listening to: Beautiful Things (Gabriel and Dresden Remix) - Andain
Random Thought of the Day: Sleepy, not in Seattle :[

Starting tomorrow, I'm going to do something pretty random:
I am gonna go on a cleanse!
I think its just another way for me to try and structure my life, and teach myself to have more discipline.
Cleaning feels good.... I think despite the fact that I have a hard time organizing my thoughts, its calming to know that ordering things is so simple and mindless. I finally know what people mean when they say cleaning is therapeutic.. haha.

no, i will not clean for you when i get stressed =_=;

so yes. starting tomorrow:
no meat, dairy, whatever veganism entails
super limited amounts of coffee and sugar and alcohol
for the most part, no white carbs. whole grain and brown rice and whatnot is good
lots of fruits and veggies

this means: no froyo, no ice cream, limited amounts of boba, but without the milk tea (not that i ever get that anyways.. black tea ftw!), no pastries, and no morning coffee D:
i think the last one will be the hardest lol

its only 3 weeks.. i hope i last!

i think i kinda fucked my body up last quarter
here's to recovery!

also, gonna try to keep my room clean. =d
i think this will be harder than eating clean..

good music to study to:

I trekked almost 1.5 miles today to the Borders in Westwood to study. I can never study in my room. Here, now, I am seated in the middle of Seattle's Best Coffee, trying to wean my taste buds off sugar by drinking iced coffee with only soymilk (it's really bitter). Earbuds plugged into my charging netbook (hence, instead of at a table overlooking the busy street I'm forced to sit by a table behind a column - the only table with access to an outlet) my brain's gears tick in time to trance.

Beautiful Things (Gabriel & Dresden's Unplugged Mix) - I could listen to this song forever
Find Yourself ( John O'Callaghan ft Sarah Howells) - the first song that really got me into trance
Love All The Pain Away - Ronski Speed
Man on the Run (Dash Berlin with Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren) - the vocals for this song are amazing

at 12:23pm, I have officially given up on bitter coffee.
at 1:27pm, I try streaming Last.fm on my phone, because the wi-fi at Borders snags a lot
at 1:28pm, I realize my phone's music-playing capabilities are no match for even the laggiest of wi-fi.
I've been listening to Tiesto for the last hour (:

Secretly I'm jealous of those girls who listen to breathy french music and wear camel colored trench coats with black shorts and sky-high ankle boots. They rock breezy layered frayed oversized shirts and fifteen rings on one hand. Pictures of them are usually expertly processed to look vintage, with soft glowing light and slightly desaturated hues. Sometimes I wonder- how do they find so much time to brush grass in meadows and so much money to spend on Prada and Gucci and Proenza Schouler and American Rag and RVCA and Givenchy and I could go on and on and on...
I'm turning green, and it's definitely not from the over-consumption of not-quite-Starbucks.
