ready to fly

I'm just a little birdie that has its wings, but can't seem to get off the ground.
dreaming of new ideas
reading everything I can
my eyelids are my canvas for invention

Plato's words keep spinning around in my head: "Necessity is the mother of invention"

to the vineyard we go

Who knew Florida had a vineyard or could even grow grapes?
There were rows and rows of Florida's native muscadine grapes
ready to be crushed into sweet and dry wine.

I may have sampled a bit of the tarty tart muscadine grapes,
definitely not ripe. They grow so big you have to peel the skin to eat them.

The Lakeridge winery was so cute!
Three sips is the key to any wine tasting:
One: cleanse the palette
Two: taste the wine
Three: savor the wine
In the end you should know if you really like it or not.

3 weeks

I can't believe I've been out of school for three weeks! I don't believe it, I won't believe it. What do I have to show for it? I've applied for jobs almost everyday since I've been back! nothing, nada, zip. When I was at school I heard how bad the economy was, but until I actually broke that educational bubble I had no clue. I'm only saying this after 3 weeks! It's sad and pathetic but that's what I get for being a workaholic. All this free time is killing me! The withdrawal symptoms are beginning to set in, my meds should be along shortly.

top knot

Love top knots!
I can't get enough, it's the only thing keeping me cool in this heat.
I only wish my hair was longer so I could make it a tad bit messier.

last summer glow

While everyone was starting their first day of school, I spent the day soaking up the sun. I've wanted to do this all summer long, but was hibernating inside trying to get through school. Well today was my turn, and I am definitely one sunburned girl!

bike ride to city hall

A stop at Versini's for banana and sour green apple!

City Hall for the "City of Lakes"

love the repetition of the columns!

spent the day sketching Miss Bonnie underneath the cool canopy of trees

Great Afternoon until I became a poor desperate lost soul. I feel like a sell out. I applied for jobs out of my degree. I'm getting desperate! I basically wanted to plead my case in the email: excuse me sir I need money to buy gas for my old car that I would really like to sell soon. I graduated from University and I'll work really hard! Hire me like today!!
por favor?!

Diving into uncertainty

I feel like I've been climbing a huge mountain over the past two years and now that I've finally reached the top and I have to jump off a giant diving board into the unknown. Can someone please tell me what the "unknown" is because I would really like to know!!

Wait and See!

I'm starting fresh, this "life as I know it". It's time for new ideas, new adventures, and lots of pictures taken along the way. I just graduated college and have now entered into the real world, or at least I think I have. Right now it's starting to feel more and more like the twilight zone with each passing day. So here I sit, one week post grad. I've applied, I've interviewed, I've cleaned, and I've reminisced. So what's next to this post grad life? What's on the agenda? Well for starters, this blog. I've started blogs in the past and never really set goals for them, just kind of jumped in and saw where they led. I always joke about the memoirs I am going to write someday, and thought instead of waiting until I'm old and gray, why not start now! So here it is, my little work in progress. My memoirs from post grad life and everything that follows. So the big question I have on my mind is: Where do I go from here? literally and figuratively, where is this journey called life going to lead me down. Some of these entries will be pointless and some of them may even be a little emotional, but this is going to be my therapy, its cheap and free and as long as I have the internet I think I'm good. (Food, Clothes, Designs, Emotions, and Boys) I'm a very complex person! So here it is my "Memoirs of a Lady" or "Lady Memoir"!
