Wall of Art

Me: Posts about how I'll post again the next day
Me: *Doesn't do it*
Ashley: Ha ha remember when you said you would post the next day. Me too. But you haven't.

SO HERE IS ME POSTING SO MANY DAYS AFTER I SAID I WOULD. Listen, my printer was out of ink. It's a valid excuse. Also, I had a midterm that week and the week after that. It's not my fault. I'm also clearly so bad at saying I'll do this the next day so next time I say that (I'm talking to you Ashley) don't believe me!!!

I asked Sammy what I should write about and she told me to write about the different art that I have up on my wall. Some of them I did myself, most of them are from my favorite magazine/of my favorite bands/movies, some are actual famous artworks, and the rest of it is old pictures of family or polaroids of my friends.

Here is what my small wall of art looks like now:

I used to have it on a different wall in my room but I thought that having it above my desk fit better in my room. Plus it's nice to look up at it when I'm doing homework and need a break for a second.

Here are a couple of my favorite little art pieces I have up on my wall. I got them from Rookie I don't know how long ago, but I love them.

These are the ones that I have done (the four guys are one of my favorite bands).

This was actually my final project for my graphic design class
in high school but I still love it. One of the few things I've done
that I'm actually really proud of.


And here are some photos of me and my friends:

And two of me, my parents, my grandpa, and my fat-ass head nephew.

(I immediatetly thought of those killer clowns back in
September/October of 2016 when I saw this lmao)

(I want that shirt)

And some more art, by more well known artists:
Keith Haring

Frances Canon
"The Two Fridays (Las dos Fridas)" by Frida Kahlo
-- Someone everyone should look up to.
From Ambivalently Yours

How can you not love this show and/or Andy & April. One of the most iconic TV couples. 

Now And Then is such a fucking good movie. I just saw it for the first time this past winter break with Scott and Sam. I'm mad that I haven't seen it sooner because it's THAT good.

If you know me AT ALL, you know that Almost Famous is my all time favorite movie. I can watch it multiple times in a day for weeks and weeks and never get sick of it. The only movie I've been able to watch Kate Hudson in and love her. I want to marry William Miller, and also Billy Crudup is a fucking BABE in it. He looks like George Harrison.
If I was going to be any character in Bob's Burgers, it would be Louise.
Obviously I have to have Tim Riggins up on my wall. Great show, greater man.
The Simpsons is one of the greatest shows on Earth.

Sam started a movie list, so if anyone has any movie recommendations LET ME KNOW! We will add it. (Especially if they're scary movies!!!)

These are all the people who have (just to name a few) who have shaped me into me. 

Hinds -- the four piece lo-fi band who has been one of my favorites for YEARS.
They wear what they want, wear anything that's comfortable, play what they want. They will call out people being assholes but they can also be the nicest people ever and so supportive of everyone.

She is so confident and does not give a fuck what anyone thinks about her. She's such an inspiration to anyone young or old. She speaks her mind and loves herself. Barbie is one of the biggest reasons why I've learned to love myself.

Last is Diana Veras.
 She just recently did an interview with Asos about her style and her confidence. Just like Barbie, she's a great inspiration and great role model for young women. They both know what young women go through in this society, and it's important to have role models like them.

Morro Bay

I have been procrastinating on this for weeks now, and my friend called me out on it multiple times. I tried to use the excuse that I've been so busy with school (it's slowly sucking away my soul) but she said it was a bullshit excuse. So thanks for that, Ashley.

I was going to write about this wall of different art/people/pictures I have on my wall in my room (which was Sammy's idea) but the new pictures that I was going to put up didn't work out as planned. So I'm going to post that tomorrow. You're welcome, Ashley.

A couple weeks ago, the gang went to Morro Bay for the day. It was extremely cold and rainy, but it was still a lot of fun. For those of you who are here just for the photos, I have photos for you.

We got up early and stopped in Solvang for some coffee/breakfast. And we sat there for probably 30-40 minutes just like this:

Ha, millennials. Am I right?
We started our drive to Morro Bay and every time we saw a cow, we started looking for a place to pull over because Sam wanted to see one. Unfortunately we couldn't stop but we saw many cows.

We went after there was weeks of rain. So everything North of Santa Barbara was so green to the point that we were questioning if we were really in California. It was gorgeous to see that much green in California since I don't even remember the last time seeing that much green in California. 

Once we go to Morro Bay, we went straight to the harbor. There was this cute green/teal wall right by the bathrooms that I took a photo of Scottie in front of. 

I stole this from Sammy lmao

Then we went to the beach right by the big rock. And Scott refused to get out of her car because of the mud and she didn't want to get her shoes dirty. So Sam and I got out of the car to take photos. It was so windy (clearly by the photos of Sam you can tell) and there was this couple in the car next to Scottie that was staring at us like we were crazy for getting out of the car. 

We walked around for a bit and found a psychic shop so Scott went in to go get her palm read. While she did that, Sam and I hung out on the little benches they had next to the shop.

And Sam found a cute little restaurant sign that was, as she would say it, on brand. 

After Scott's reading, we walked towards this diner to get some lunch and came across this shop and had these little face cut out signs. On the other side was a mermaid and a seahorse, but we felt the octopus and the starfish suited us more. Also, we don't know if Smoobage is a word but that was the name of the shop that had it out. 

Our last trip before going home, we went to this cute antique store that looked like it would be something in the movie Cars. It was really small but there was only about six or seven other people in the shop.

The old signs were our favorite part of the shop.

That was our entire trip to Morro Bay. We also took a photo in front of the antique store. Right when Sam counted to three, the rain went from 0 to 100 in a split second. It was to the point where the rain hurt when it hit you. Easily the funniest thing to happen to us.

Anyways, that's my post for now. I hope it wasn't as boring to read as I thought it would be. Shout out to Ashley for getting on my ass for not posting, so you can thank her for making you go through this God awful post. I'll post again tomorrow (hopefully) about the art that's on my wall.
