Anyways, recently I've discovered that my school has a massive archive of national geographic's so I've been really inspired by the whole aesthetic nature brings. I've really enjoyed reading blogs like "Cabin Porn" and reading Thoreau (oh god that sounds really pretentious I swear to god I'm not like that in real life!)
I find something really beautiful about nature. We live in such a developed world so its nice to romanticize the wilderness. I know its not good to romanticize and be self indulgent but I think there is something really special about being able to imagine futures that aren't dull and places that aren't covered in sprawl. I'm such a realist when it comes to the present and immediate future but when it comes to the far off future I get really excited. I mean, in two years I'm going to have so much freedom so I can't help but dream about it.
Lately I've also been listening to Neil Young and dressing all ~dreamy~ by wearing my rug dress and huge cable-knit old man sweaters that are good for telling stories about ice fishing and being Ron Swanson. The main reason is pretty much the fact that I'm actually too lazy to wear non sweater items of clothing. I love snow and stuff but to be an annoying ~fashun blogger~ it's really hard for me to experiment with clothing. Also my kewl photographer boyfriend is like totally scared to take pictures in the cold! omg! my life is so fabulous! ARE YOU LISTENING? IF YOU'RE NOT YOU SHOULD CUZ IM VERY IMPORTANT. DORT DORT DORT. oops sorry, who let me on the internet?
All photos are from various national geographic scans except the last two (an advert for a vw bus and a film still from Hanna) the 6th photograph is of me that Leah took before our backpacking adventure to Saint Vincent.
