Trying to wrap my head around a rejection email I got just now from a job I applied to three months ago. Three months of silence would have sufficed but I guess they just really wanted to make sure I wasn’t over here waiting by the phone with bated breath. Thanks, I guess?
From what I can gather, one of the neighbors has been trying to get a video that a friend of hers shot from another one of her friends to put up as content on her fashion blog. Over the past half hour I have heard the words “bitch,” “unacceptable,” “not okay,” and “content” like 100+ times. This is also the blondest, most Southern California girl I have ever seen. Her diction reminds me of Kristin Bell’s in Party Down mixed with every cat fight I can recall from The Hills. There is a house remix of that found love in a hopeless place song blasting from her apartment as she shouts “this is unacceptable” for the umpteenth time. She also just said “can you like, stop crushing my fandom?” for some reason. I don’t know why I find this all so fascinating.
Tapestry is transitioning from the public storytelling platform it is today to one for telling brand stories. We’re thrilled about the new possibilities this brings for Tapestry but saddened our direct relationship with all of you is coming to a close. You’ve shaped who we will be going forward, that is certain.
Really glad betaworks shut down tapestry so they could focus on more important creative platforms like Yo.
I like southern California a lot more than northern. Northern was beautiful but like, too beautiful? When I was a kid, the plants in Dr. Seuss books never made sense to me. Everything in Colorado is pine. “How do these exist?!” I’d exclaim after Green Eggs & Ham. My main contention being the plants. Anyway, I get it now. Both hemispheres of California have some pretty dope biospheres.
I miss the dogs a lot. Especially now that I have a smart phone. It’s insane to me to think about how the camera on my phone is better than any camera I’ve ever owned.
I’m re-learning Spanish on an app now so I can talk to Melissa’s family at parties. Tú bebes leche?
I have met a lot of great people in Los Angeles and I am thankful for it. Los Angeles is home for me now. It was weird going back to Colorado. Like seeing a stranger.
Creatively, I feel like I’m in a cocoon. I can’t really handle how much love and empathy I have found and I don’t have the words or energy to describe it. Like, describing how and why you love someone in a Rilke sort of way is exhausting and frankly, I don’t want to do it. And I know the opposite of that is much more romantic but I am literally laid prone by love. And also tired because it’s like 2 am and I’ve had maybe a bunch of weed and some tequila? IDK.
