disney love

happy (belated) valentines day! in the spirit of all things love-related, for school, we decided that the theme for the valentines day civvies day should be disney love, because who doesnt love at least one of the disney classics? we had people coming to school as mickey and minnie mouse, lilo from lilo and stitch, esmeralda from the hunchback of notre dame and so much more. i took the opportunity to dress up as one of my favourite disney princesses, jasmine from aladdin, and suffice to say, i had my outfit planned + bought before we even announced the theme to the rest of the school.

on the 14th, we also held our annual valentines day social and our theme was casino royale – the crew worked so hard to make it happen and the turn out was great, if i do say so myself. i was, naturally, on photo duty and i took that as an invitation to have some fun with it and make some photobooth strips of our guests! it was honestly one of the most intense days of my life, and i found multiple new reasons to dislike valentines day – none of which having to do with my complete and utter singledom, funny enough. all in all, it was a success, so i thought i’d share some pics of the day! lemme know what you did this valentines day too 🙂

what i wore:
  • jasmine outfit from china town
  • head chain from fordsburg markets
  • jelly sandals from cotton on
and for the valentines social…

Love Poems

Love Poems

Once again, I changed up the blog a bit. It seems like the only consistent thing about me is change. Oh, the paradox that is life. Moving on.

Love Another

Meet Rudy Francisco. His hobbies include editing his life story, hiding behind metaphors and trying to convince his shadow that he is someone worth following – all of which he does when he’s not too busy performing his poetry and making a seventeen year old girl blush (figuratively) and ache for a boyfriend who loves her so much that a poem like this would be written in her honor *swoons*. This poem reawakened my bitter and hardened inner romantic and I just need somebody to feel like I do/did when I heard this. Enjoy.

Love Yourself

Now, meet Sarah Kay. She needs no introduction or back story because her spoken word poetry speaks for her and she gives her own poetic back story in the video. It may be long, but I can guarantee you, it is worth it. I did her little exercise and here’s what I came up with:
3 Things I Know To Be True:
1) There is the sky above me.
2) There is the earth below me.
3) Although sometimes dim, there is a fire within me.

Love The Fact That It’s Not A Poem But It’s Erykah So

The title of the blog is ‘Love Poems’ but I got caught in a YouTube hole and found one of my favourite Badu songs. Music and poetry are both an art form, so I was basically on target.
You don’t have to believe everything you think – we’ve been programmed, wake up, we miss you.

^ that is also new. just seeing how it goes.
