don't wake me i plan on sleeping in

Last week I had the strangest dream, where everything was exactly how it seemed, where there was never any mystery of who shot John F. Kennedy. It was just a man with something to prove- slightly bored and severely confused. He steadied his rifle with his target in the center and became famous on that day in November. Don't wake me, I plan on sleeping in. Again last night I had that strange dream, where everything was exactly how it seemed. No concerns about the world getting warmer. People just thought they were just getting rewarded for treating others as they'd like to be treated, for obeying stop signs and curing diseases.

I re-discovered The Postal Service's Give Up album this weekend. I love how music takes you back to a specific time in your life. Motion City Soundtrack's 'Future Freaks Me Out' reminds me of Thanksgiving and Stone Roses' 'I Wanna Be Adored' reminds me of November of senior year. Like this album takes me back to 8th grade and getting mixed CDs from the boy I liked.
This weekend I also discovered stockholm street style and literally went through 150+ pages. It's very similar to Scott Schuman and Tommy Ton's work, but I like the subjects stockholm uses better. Like this little girl for instance. She looks more put together than the majority of people I've encountered who are twice her age. I know her mother is responsible, but still. Also watched the 1996 version of Lolita. Talk about a death scene. Frank Langella is crazy. I read the book in 8th or 9th grade and kind of forgot about it, but I saw someone post a screenshot of the 1996 version so I decided to check it out. I guess it was well-done, I want to see the 1962 version to see if the 60's Lolita was less annoying. 1996 Lolita made me want to run her over and leave her on the side of the road. Honestly. She lost her charm after the first 10 minutes. But the girl Humbert fell in love with as a teenager was gorgeous. I guess Lolita was supposed to be annoying though? I forget, it's been so long since I've read that thing. Also have been catching up on Arrested Development. Ahh so funny and good. I love dry humor. I miss watching Gilmore Girls with my sister though.

Today was lazy, because it's Sunday. I completely missed the daylight savings shenanigans. I don't even feel more tired than normal. 39 days until home!! Oh yeah, I started a blog.
