Through My Lens

Friday, August 11, 2006


At last. It's Friday. I love this day - I love it come 4:00p.m. when I'm high-tailing it out of the office, that is.

What's been going on? Not much. I've found awhole bunch of cool new sites that I'm reading. Most of these are inspiring me to keep being artsy, as well as to find some cool thrift shops in Nashville. (I used to go thrifting all the time in highschool; it was my best friend's and my favorite past time. We'd find the funkiest 70s clothes we could find and then wear them proudly to school, defying the current trends and styles. But this only lasted a year or so - I wasn't cut out to be a hippy. It hurt my legs.)

Huz and I and four of our favorite friends are hitting the road tomorrow. We're going to see what Tennessee has to offer by way of white water rafting. Even though I'm from Colorado, I've only actually gone rafting once before. It was a few years ago and Huz and I had a blast. You know how they take those pictures of you from the bank in order to get as much money as possible from your wallet that day? Well both our mouths were wide open in every shot they took, so I expect the same this time. I'll let you know how the rafting adventure, the sharing of one hotel room with 5 other people, and the 3 hour drive in which one of our friend's insists we watch a lame movie go when I get back.

Until then, have a fantastic weekend.

[p.s. I don't want to go to thrift shops to buy 70s clothing anymore, but I want to find cool treasures and be economical at the same time. Read this; you'll understand.]
