Cool for the Summer / High by the Beach

I went on a date with my best friend. She was on exchange in Japan for four months and she just arrived back in Vancouver. Needless to say, I missed her a lot and I'm happy to see her. We have both grown so much in four months and listening to her stories makes me want to travel too (soon, very soon).

We stopped by Thierry for coffee and macarons, and headed to a Korean tapas place for some nibbles.

Flora bought these Bart and Lisa Simpson earrings for me from Harajuku! She knows exactly what I like. I'm gonna wear the yellow out of these for the next year.

Things are a-changing, and I'm feeling good. Do what makes you happy. Do whatever it takes to make yourself happy, because when you're happy, good things happen.

P.S. "High by the Beach" by Lana del Rey has been leaked! Listen to it below, it's amazing, as expected.



It's me again

Rami and I took each other's headshots a couple weeks ago and here's a few photos.

I'm working on myself more recently, mostly because I just went through a break-up (and still going through it -- apparently, it never ends), but also because I want to be a better person.

I want to be a good actress, write more songs, get to know my friends again, smoke less, learn to cook new things, earn enough money to not be stressed out about rent and loan payments, and yada-yada-yada.

I want to learn how to be content with being just myself again. Learning to be me again.

P. S. I covered Darius at Fortune Sound Club for Creep Magazine. Check it out here.



I was a young girl, selfish and wild, like a fire in LA

COVER "Because of You" by Lana Del Rey

I'm pursuing acting, so if anybody wants to work with me, let me know! I don't have a demo reel yet because I don't have any footage yet but I'll get that done by the end of the summer. I went to my first audition today and it was just improv but I still had a lot of fun. I'm also working on memorizing a partial script for another audition. It's fun playing around with your face and tone of voice. I wish I started earlier, like, if I could have done this while at UBC or even in high school.

It's never too late.




I feel like up until now, my life has been a complete joke.

Every day my head gets a little clearer.

Thank God I'm still alive 'cause I really didn't think I'd last this long. Also, smoking is a really bad habit -- please don't start. Yeah, I'm talking to you.

I'll quit smoking when I turn 25.

Spent the last month and a half selling Moneris machines using business-to-business marketing, which means walking quite a lot. There's a line separating my toes from the rest of my feet from me wearing the same flats in the sun every day. I'm straight-up brown right now, except for my chest, which is still pretty pale, and of course my toes.

I quit on Monday.

Right now, I have enough money to last me 'til August. I'll find a mindless job before then and focus on my art (said every creative post-grad ever).

But seriously though.


By the Sea

The ocean and the sun are masters of their realm. One lives with force and the other by time. The sun is not eternal; death awaits her too. But she is bigger than you or me, and so it may seem that she will live forever.
I feel small when I imagine the lives of planets and stars, and people who appear to be planets themselves.
But there is light in all of us, regardless of the time of day. We can inhabit the skins of nocturnal creatures too.
We live among giants. We strive to become giants, immortal, invincible.
The city becomes our friend and our enemy. The city is a jungle, and the jungle is a home.
The jungle is a home.
Ask yourself tonight: what am I so scared of?
