What to be...

For those who don't know, tomorrow is my last day of Fashion. It's more than just the last day of school before summer for me, it really is the last day of fashion, at least for now in my life. It's a bitter-sweet moment. I am excited to go home but sad to leave the city.
It hadn't hit me until today that I really am (once again) at that place in my life where I can be anything I want when I grow up.
But, I have been thinking about it and I have come up with a few options:

1. Professional Yachter--that's right. I would yacht for a living, on my yacht. And I would wear stripes, white pants and boat shoes all the time.

2. Dessert tester. I would mostly be tasting new creations by Magnolia Bakery and anything with the words "pie", "cake", or "blueberry" in the title.

3. J. Crew clothes tester. Basically, J. Crew would give me their clothes to wear. That's it. That's all. And I would get to keep them all.
If you have any suggetions or feedback, send them my way.
Until then, happy yachting.

Seventh Heaven

I should be doing Yoga homework (really?? Yes.) but I can't concentrate.
First of all, check out this boy!! Greyson Chance. He is insane and I love him. I wish either I was 11 or he was 19.
Second: How can anyone concentrate when they have had CINNAMON GRAHAM CRACKERS. Don't worry, you read that right. CINNAMON. They are amazing, especially when you eat them with chocolate like a smore without marshmellows. Or a fire.
Third: There was a lightning storm this evening. It was so beautiful I wish I had my camera. But I just sat on the roof forever and watched it until it was gone. It was GORGEOUS.
Fourth: I'm too tired to concentrate. That's what happens at the end of the semester. Can't they have finals at the beginning of a semester after everyone is well rested??
Fifth: Between classes today, Bree Lena and I squeezed in 2 episodes of Heroes. That made they day about 100% better.
Sixth: Don't tell, but I went to J. Crew yesterday knowing that payday was right around the corner. Don't worry, I didn't buy anything (except somehow a belt...I don't know how that happend, honest). However, they are holding my next purchase for me until I so desire to go in and buy it. I so desire.
Seventh: I COME HOME IN 11 DAYS!!! WOOHOO! I am quite excited about that. I could jump up and down all day, and sometimes I do.
It's just real good. Better than Yoga homework by about a gazillion light years.

Yoga: And Breathe...

Saturday mornings are yoga mornings. I wake up at 6am to go to a 9am yoga class.
Yesterday's class was the most interesting yet, as we explored our chakras.
It's meant to be super fullfilling and relaxing, but as you will see, I was not very relaxed.

It went something like this:
"Imagine. Imagine a triangle with fire inside. Now, become that fire in the triangle."--Will this hurt?
"Imagine. Imagine a circle with green smoke within it's boundaries. Breathe in the smoke."--No thank you.
"Imagine. Imagine lying on the earth. Lying in a field of green grass. Or imagine YOU are the green grass, and your body is the field."--HAHA! (Imagine me, dressed in a grass unitard walking around New York City. Awesome.)
"Imagine. Imagine you are floating in water. Imagine you slowly become the water. Now, float in the water as the water. Just bob around in the water as the water. And slowly, wash away."--I don't understand what that means.
"Look up between your eyebrows. Look hard and look deep."--And now, stick out your tounge and say cheese for the camera.
