so i just realized that since i've been here, i've basically been living off a vegetarian diet. basically. i will eat meat occasionally, but usually the opportunity never arises or i'm never in the mood for it. i never thought that time would come, but i don't hate it. sort of indifferent, actually.
i went running through central park sunday with my fit mate, beau, and loved it so damn much. it was at dusk, the perfect time to be in the park and not feel unsafe or unsure of my surroundings. halfway up the westside, alongside the lake to the east side, plus around 60 blocks walking there and back. so much better than the gym, and now that i have decent sneaks, i don't hate running so much anymore. we're making it a tri-weekly ritual, for sure.
my classes are weird. not bad-weird, just not quite what i expected. i've only been to one class, but there seems to be a pointed concentration towards printed fabrics, at least this semester. i normally loathe most forms of printed fabric, but i'm going to use this opportunity to change that. i will say that these next two years will be an interesting and never-before-experienced foray into color. seriously, i have never seen faculty take color so damn seriously. hopefully, that ardent appreciation of color will translate to my wardrobe choices; looking at my closet and looking at my roommate's closet made me realize how much i love black, gray and neutrals... maybe to an extreme.
i can't wait for wovens, batiking and yarn-dyed fabric classes. so up my alley.
our room looks good. a little busy, but that's to be expected in a dorm room. i would love to have art in my next place (by me, of course - the vanity kills me, i love it), but right now it's not really possible. i made those cheesy little paper snowflakes and hung them from the ceiling - they cast a great shadow.
gossip girl is filming two blocks south of here. i walked by, and it wasn't that great. they had it blocked off, and people were taking photos. i was on my way to submit an application to lush, anyway. i can't wait for their call, good or bad may it be.
