I obviously never post on here, but I have been posting my photography on my new website, so if you could check it out / share it, that would be so amazing! Thanks guys!

Some memories of the weekend.
Madison, Lily and I went up to Paonia, the little hippie town I used to live in, for a few nights.
We stayed at my grandparents' farm, drank cider at a bluegrass concert in an orchard, and embraced our grimy, Chaco-clad toes.
All I've wanted to do lately is wear my comfy elephant hippie pants and Chaco sandals and groove to folk music and lay in fields, so this weekend was perfect for that.
Now I just have to make it through finals and the last few weeks of torture before heading off to Berlin for the summer. School is getting harder and harder to care about.
Hope everyone is well!

It makes me so happy to be in a city in which everyone has such a unique style and I don't feel incredibly out-of-place wearing something like this. There are 2 huge thrift stores here that have more pricey (but still really cheap) vintage sections and then clothes by weight. One has a happy hour on Tuesday and the other on Wednesday so we always go during those times to get the 30% discount! I got the skirt I'm wearing at one a couple weeks ago along with a flannel and tropical-print coverup, and today I got these adorable pinstripe dungarees (only 7€!):
For summer reading I have to read To Kill a Mockingbird and Slaughterhouse-Five. I finished To Kill a Mockingbird a few days ago and loved it! These dungarees will definitely be perfect for channeling Scout. Mascha and I are going to Prague next week (alone!) for a few days and I'm incredibly excited, so expect pictures soon!
Some random pictures from today:

Yes, it's time.
I'm going to write a blog post.
Maybe. Here goes:
Hi people of the blogosphere! Long time no see! Obviously, I have not been the most-----i am now writing about 2 hours later, because the grandma of my best friend who I am staying with just came so I had to speak german and play cards with her (see what I mean?)-----reliable blogger, for various reasons I will only summarise for you.
The last time I posted something was right before school ended, so I was super busy with projects and final exams. The day that school ended Mascha and I went to my grandparents' farm for 5 days, then to NYC for a week, then to berlin, then to an island in the baltic sea with no internet, and now we are back in Berlin. So I haven't had much time...
Today I met up with a friend of mine from colorado, and then I went and sat in a little cafe for 3 hours and drank coffee and ate a sandwich and drew and watched people, which was amazing and perfect and I felt like I was in a movie or that someone should really make I movie about me or that wait no I should make a movie. It was very emotional and I listened to High Highs the whole time which made it even more perfect. Like look where I sat:
(excessive photos I know I know)
And here are some random pages of my sketchbook that I did recently.
I am so happy to be back in europe...

UGH so I just wrote a whole post and then it didn't save and I'm so mad.
But anyways, these are some simple outfits that we wore to school the other day...
The first one is Mascha (follow her tumblr strawberryfield-s!).
I'm going to miss her so much...
ONLY 9 SCHOOL DAYS LEFT WOHOOO.
Speaking of which, I have to go do homework.
