A survey.

I'm finally settled in, connected to the internet, and catching up on all my beloved blogs. The darling This Wheel's On Fire posted a survey a few weeks back that I'm dying to fill out. I'm so tired of the stupid facebook surveys I see all the time. This one was a little more interesting. So here you are, like it or not, a shit-ton of personal info.

What is your current obsession?
New apartment, new car (Subaru Legacy..sedan, NOT wagon!), new boyyy.. :)

What songs are currently on repeat?
I'm tired of everything I've had on repeat, so I'm digging Pandora. I plugged in the Kills, and I'm getting lots of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Black Keys, Black Lips, Arctic Monkeys, Raconteurs, Raveonettes...good, good shit.

If you could be any animal for a day, what would you be?
Any one of the spoiled felines residing in my mother's house. Eating and napping all day sounds like heaven to me right now..

What are you wearing today?
White jeans, a drapey blue top my friend's mom just gave me, and flip flops. Hot, humid New Jersey weather is not very conducive to outfit creativity this early in the season.

What's your must-have piece for summer?
Anything cheap, in the form of a dress.

Why is today special?
Today I'm buying the shower gift for my bestest best friend's fiancee's bridal shower, which is tomorrow. <3<3<3

What would you like to have in your hands right now?
Chris's face..

What would you like to learn to do?
Speak French fluently.

What's the last thing you bought?
A vintage piano bench I'm going to use as a tv stand. No, two dresses.

What is your most challenging goal right now?
Overcoming debt. I made the wise decision at 19 to put a few semesters of college on my credit card... ?!

If you could have a home totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
That's tough..Paris, obvi. I'm obsessed. But I really love my hometown right now, and everyone I love is so centrally located.

What would you like to get rid of?
Emotional baggage! Lol. And clothes, I've had some stuff on eBay in an attempt to be rid of them, but nobody wants my old crap. I'm putting them back up anyway!

Who do you want to meet right now?
Marc Jacobs. My hero.<3

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Paris. No question.

Which book could you read over and over again?
Actual literature? Catcher in the Rye. Garbage/for fun book? The Bohemian Manifesto by Lauren Stover. I've read it a hundred times, it's just a fun book.

Describe your personal style.
Poor girl dropped out of FIT? Let's just say, I try to emulate Kate Moss/Alison Mosshart or Nico Reilly/Victory Ford (Lipstick Jungle) on a paltry budget. Lots of thrift store, Target, F21, and Aldo.

What are your plans for the future?
Oh, the typical 'get married, have babies'. Big on my priority list right now. I'd like to travel. I just wanna like what I do every day, be in love, and get by. That sounds uninspired and unambitious, but it's really not.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your closet?
An amazing black cardigan I got for my birthday.

Do you admire anyone's style?
See above: Kate Moss, Alison Mosshart, Nico Reilly, Victory Ford. The last two are ficticious characters, but they're well-dressed. They taught me to embrace gaudy rings and pencil skirts.

What do you think of the person who tagged you?
I wasn't actually tagged, but I think I must have known her in a past life. Her aesthetic and her brain function so closely to mine.. :)

Feel free to fill out. I dunno who to tag, I don't know if anyone still reads this blog!

for the sake of not being mean, i am just going to say I am disappointed with you kelly. you talk about this new boy like somehow the old one needed to be replaced. guess what? You will never replace Paul, he is one in a billion and what you had with him was a supreme gift that you have foolishly chosen to squander. you could have at least moved on to someone better looking than the goon on your facebook.I guess you pick boys based on the cars they drive now. i am going to have to delete you as a friend because every time i see that picture of you both or see you talk about him, it disgusts me. it really makes me sick honestly. the way Paul treated you after seven years is better than most guys treat girls after a few months, i know this from experience. the fact that you ran to some guy right after the breakup shows such weakness on your part, and seeing the way you talk now makes me feel like you are twelve. paul is a man that people just know is meant for great things, and you could have had an exceptional life with him. instead, you have chosen a life of mediocrity with someone I hear is an idiot and a douchebag. now you watch racing and hang out with a bunch of rednecks, what the fuck, who are you?

when i ask paul about what happened he just shrugs and says he doesnt know and i can see such deep pain in his eyes and it tears me up. he refuses to talk about it and any mention of you changes his whole disposition. i really really hope he doesnt look at this blog anymore because it would fuck him up.

over the years i thought i had gotten to know you well, but i guess that just isnt the case. i really dont want to hate you, but i think you have behaved awfully and displayed such immaturity. I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE DONE THIS TO PAUL. you dont even try to work things out with someone you spent seven years with, not even once? instead just surprise them out of nowhere that you need to be alone? and then it ends up that you werent alone but instead with some shitbrick? i think paul knows how dishonest you have been, and it has to be hard for him to bear. After all the years you spent trying to convince Paul to marry you, I cannot believe this is the course you decided to take. you owe paul so much, and he stuck by you through so much shit, and you abandoned him when he needed you. he still somehow managed to get straight As last semester, which is miraculous, and goes to show the calibre of person he is.

being a female myself and having seen similar situations, i have some insight into this and feel like i know what is happening. paul didnt marry you within the timeline you set, made you feel inadequate and bitter, and it is almost like you are punishing him for you are desperately searching for someone else to marry you asap. then you meet some guy, and of course it is new and exciting, and you are blinded by that. guess what? you and paul were new and exciting once too, but that fades, and reality sets in. new boy is probably saying and doing whatever it takes to get in your pants and stay there, but there is nothing real between you both, only illusion. sure he probably went to a kills show and says he loves them, but he is just telling you anything you want to hear. so now, you will probably marry this guy before the novelty wears off, and then one day its going to hit you how stupid you have been, and how leaving Paul was one of the worst decisions you have ever made.

despite saying all of this, i hope that one day you reach out to paul, and you find eachother again. all any of his friends want for him is happiness, and even though i know he has been with other girls, he seems unable to shake the memory of you from what I can tell. i cant believe that after all this time you care nothing for him, and want to see him hurt. this whole thing makes me so sad. mostly for paul because he doesnt deserve such pain, but also for you because you clearly dont understand what youve sacrificed.

Nice to hear from you, "anonymous"! Thanks for the sweeping, shallow assumptions. If you ever care to hear the OTHER side of the story, give me a call, because you have absolutely no idea what the truth is. xoxo

Ps. Shitbrick says hi.
