why, hello there, 2010.
happy new year, world!
the photographer and i celebrated at home, and it was quite nice! we watched the 30 rock marathon and then various new year's eve celebrations, ordered a pizza, and played mario kart wii. it was fun and relaxing end to what was, in reality, a rather long and stressful day.
so now it's 2010, and it's a big year!
i'm turning 22 (okay, 22 isn't really all that exciting, i guess, but i'll make the most of it)
and, in may, graduating from college. woah.
i'm excited, though. i love the promise of a new year.
Day 01 → Your favourite song
this is a hard choice! the truth is, i don't know that i really have just one favorite song. in fact, i think i have a lot of favorite songs. according to last.fm, however, my "top track" is sufjan stevens' "the predatory wasp of the palisades is out to get us!" i have to concur; it is definitely one of my so-called "favorites." musically and lyrically, it is an absolutely gorgeous song. the melody rises and falls so subtly, stitched together seamlessly. one of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard.
"thinking outrageously i write in cursive
i hide in my bed with the lights on the floor
wearing three layers of coats and leg warmers
i see my own breath on the face of the door
oh i am not quite sleeping
oh i am fast in bed
there on the wall in the bedroom creeping
i see a wasp with her wings outstretched"
it reminds me of summer, of late nights beneath wide open, star-filled skies, of falling in love.
