Who likes mixed cds? I used to make a playlist for every holiday. And then mail it to at least 10 of my favorite people. I doubt anyone really listened to it. But I always put a lot of time into it. Matching songs according to the way I was feeling. Listening closely, deleting songs, editing it. Only keeping about 11 or so. I want to make more mixed cds. I want to pair them with photographs. Capturing the feeling of November, or December, not the holidays specifically; I’m not a big holiday music person. It doesn’t do anything to me.

Anyway, if you want a mixed cd just let me know; I decided I’ll send one to the first 4 people who respond. (send me an email with your address xoErica[at]live.com) I’d love to send you one. I just hope you like modest mouse. (and I’m doing this at my own pace. &I’m terrible with getting things done on time. Just as a heads up~)



I lost power the other day.

I loved not hearing the sound of all the electronics humming; I wished we had lost it for longer than 20mins. I definitely need VT.

But I have to admit, I do love waking up and watching the world cup. I always did love that.

My parents got back from Vegas on Monday and time sure does fly by when you’re home alone! (at least for me, I love time alone.)

All my classes are all finishing up; I made some cool prints (from my printmaking class.) I wanted to post them tonight but it looks like my scanner is acting up – I’ll post them later. promise.

I realized I leave for Vermont in two weeks! &Jessie leaves for London in a few days! Sheesh. It’s all so exciting though. (did you know the song Jude Law and a Semester Abroad was written about her? true story.)

(I’m thinking about selling the ‘displays’ at as discount since they’re a set size.)

I was finally able to take some ring pics! Here’s some of them:

P.S. Okay, okay, Jude Law isn’t really written about my Jessie. It could have been though!

&My friend Arielle (yes, the poet) recommended I watch this video of Anis Mojgani; it’s one of her favorites: Milos
