I just love how casually cool these guys are. Seriously. Who wants to grow their hair long and get dreadlocks and make soap with me?
Sorry guys I am slipping in my old age. We presented our final project in surface design today and I completely forgot to bring my camera, so you’re going to have to settle with these fabulous amazing state of the art photo booth pictures.
Man I only have pictures of one shoe. Long story short we had to use three techniques so I dyed them with direct application Procion MX, then painted and stenciled with pigment and then hand embroidered. (Also I think the other shoe was slightly better, sorry guys.)
I spent a lot of time thinking about Emily Carr while I was making them, and about journeys. I don’t know. I am not sure I want to write about it because it has already been living in my head the last week or so, but yeah, journeys – both physical and emotional. Basically I have been really bummed out all week about our financial situation and I am not sure if I’m going to be able to afford to go back in September. But then when I go to school I think “How can I not go back?” I just love it too much. So. We’ll see.
Anyways, Maine went out to Maple Ridge tonight so I’ve just been drinking tea, looking for jobs online and now I am watching Paper Heart again.

Also I spent some quality time with Lou.
Lady Grey is pretty much the greatest tea to happen to my life, but the bergamot reminds me of when I was working at eBay and I rode my bike to work at 6 am, and lots of times it would be raining but I didn’t care. I’d get to work and have some Earl Grey and warm up again.
This is another thing that reminds me of that time. I used to listen to a lot of Sunset Rubdown while riding my bike in the rain. I am nostalgic for that time. I guess the plus side to being so poor is I can’t afford a transit pass so I will have to reacquaint myself with my danger bike.
