I'm wearing a gray shirt. I think it's a great shirt. It's a kids PJ..it has a bear in front pocket.
Wow. That line sucked majorly!
I think everyone should do the following today: listen to a lot of 2pac and Dead Prez, have soy white russians and put on a rain jacket and go 'YAY! IT'S NOT RAINING'! See, secretly you need to be reminded. GOT YOU!
I recieved a note from The Universe today. I love notes from the universe almost as much as I love dreaming about Alaia shoes and Luxembourgian princes...
As much as I love stressing about future, I must say I truly like having cashmere, champagne, cherry cigars, bass and silk dresses in my life.

Two relevant videos of June 2010: 1. Snoop Dogg - Oh Sookie 2. Sofia Coppola's Somewhere trailer
+ that new hot vampire in True Blood......ooooh.........too hot to describe.
Well I seem to get over these serious life dramas easily, lol!
I didn't get in! And in a sick way this is the most happiest I've been in a while...
It's like, yesterday when everyone was chilling out because it was the longest and sunniest day of the year, I was home hand-washing my silk dresses...in lingerie. I have pretty hot lingerie mind you. Then I was like, shit. Is this normal? Why doesn't everyone do this? Oh...because...they probably can afford therapy and don't go around casually dropping french fries seasoning to their silk garments.
Yeah. CONGRATZZ TO EVERYONE WHO GOT IN I LOVE YOU!
(Collage by me...)
Now I'm going to run for a while because I really think I could rule the German catalogue modelling world!

Me by Sanna Lehto
I've fully enjoyed last week because I could just not think about this week..and I had the pleasure to end every day with the thought "this is the most alive I've felt in my life so far". It's the best goal to live by and in my book there's nothing wrong with being easily amused.
Last week was random anyway...being this close to getting an summer job, sitting and waiting, birthday, countryside, birthday in a countryside, I've got 5 douche fake tattoos all over me and a memory card of random mix of german minimal/bass/50 cent piano remixes I DJd at YVSF store opening...oh yeah and the new episode of True Blood and all that...
I guess I just have to keep going because this Thursday the Uni results are coming in and I don't really know what I'm doing except I'll guess I'll fix everything as I go. Morning, keep the streets empty for me.
OH AND.... MENS FASHION WEEKS !

"Because if smart women who know how smart they are intimidate men (and they do), and beautiful women who know how beautiful they are intimidate men (and they do), there is, logically, nothing more intimidating than a woman who is fully aware that she is both smart and beautiful. I mean maybe a room full of tigers with machine guns that could be scarier! Or, a smart and beautiful lady who makes jokes."
(Tiger Beatdown: 13 ways of Looking at Liz Lemon)
I recommend this mag: I LOVE YOU!
Ps. my friend's having a bomb squad in front of his apartment building...the person living behind his wall is apparently crazy person who wants to blow up buildings. And I thought I had it bad...

Waking up. Having rose petal/japanese green tea while reading Panos Yiapanis interview from Industrie. Then getting overly excited about old Jil Sander advertisements. Yeah I think tomorrow I'm going to get a life...

Today I'm going to hide in my little nest and plot the future, write my heart out, send emails, play dress-up and drink tea and just generally feel that I CAN DO LIFE! Yesterday while drunk-chatting with a friend about future I suddenly felt that "this is the point where I should start crying" but I didn't and just got annoyed with the feeling and had fabulous time!
Also yesterday at entrance exam our last assignment was to imagine you got into your favorite designer's show in Paris fashion week and paint an abstract piece of the atmosphere. My first thought was that I should just simply write HELMUT LANG'S COMEBACK but I didn't go with it...and it's so true that you always regret what you didn't do! Fuck it, I'm going to add this to my to-do list and frame it on the wall so I could always remember the lesson.
You know how good it feels to work on something and see the result? Best feeling in the world!
Last year I wasn't sure if I was going to pass my swedish final exam at all so I ordered the newspaper in swedish, started watching the swedish channel and actually read the texts in swedish fashion blogs...and in the final exams this Spring I got the third best grade! So the validation felt great! The grades might not matter in life, but the feeling that you can get better if you try does!
I'm still not good at swedish but it's ok. I'm going to try harder.

2 screencaps from an animation I made couple of months ago.
Took the easy way out with this one and the result is AMAZING !
Just needed to post these here because today I realized I am as good as others.
I am talented, creative and visionary.
It was such a relief.
Especially when this moment happened at an entrance exam week..
And I wonder what if I stopped taking the easy way out...
All the possibilities...
But then again not learning by the rules,
doing as you go has it's advantages.
Now back to my pep talk of friends/Paul Arden/Rick Owens interview in 320c.
Guess I'll have to go through some architecture books and fashion magazines for inspiration...
I'm applying for fashion design.
Bet you didn't see this one coming....LOL!
Oh and I would love to use these as prints...
Maybe if I need to do a portfolio for somewhere.
You never know what you can do in these moments of rush.
"It's more about rebellion than anything else. I embrace the adolescent side of me. One rebels when life is tough, but also when life gets too prissy. It's a reminder that you can always do whatever you want. It's a reminder of past restrictions. Everyone feels forced in one way or another. Everyone relates to having to go to work, having responsibilities, having duties. I'm just expressing everybody's fascination with their id. What if we just let go and did whatever we wanted? Everyone wants to know, because we're intrigued when we see others do it. We're all tempted to lose control. This is what I'm speaking to."
Rick Owens in 320c
"Start taking bad decisions and it will take you to a place where others only dream of being."
I love Y O U!
Good night, good morning..

LAST TIME IN SCHOOL EVER! BYE BYE DEAR STUDIO! I STILL DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO DVDS PROPERLY AND I'VE BEEN TO 5 FILM COURSES LOL!!
Ps. the upper secondary I first got into before this art one where I graduated from was recently ranked as the 4th best upper secondary in Finland! Gosh, let the what if -game begin...
Oh and I pretending it's cloudy out there because I want to wear this jacket...

Wow I just looked into the mirror and my undereyes seem to suggest that I actually do something else daily than just view pictures of Elisa Sednaoui on Italian Vogue's homepage...but since the entrance exam for fashion design is next week, I guess that files under 'research'. It feels great to say "Oh yeah I'm just doing fashion stuff just in case..." to a friend who calls you to ask what's up, when in reality you've read fashion magazines all day...
Anyways, my graduation is this Saturday and I'm planning to drag along this beautiful evening bag from the 50s...ps. I love Mad Men. I also love this glass. And the fact that my friends are out getting loans while I'm wondering when will I get my RO moment in a full-length fur vest. I guess some people have to think about that too.
I haven't been excited about my graduation because I'm a year late, I don't have a bunch of relatives to slip money to envelopes nor 40 bottles of good cava reserved. Then I realised that seconds before the end, the final moment is ours to make... plus I can wear an ass-kicking outfit! I wish I had been stronger these past months but I wasn't and that's that, I'll let go and try again. Thank you all my wonderful friends & readers for your support :)
