my vacation bucket list

My dad told me I should probably make one. "We're on winter break, after all." That's what he said. He meant it as, "How about we all make a list of things we should work on during break?" Except he said it as a statement, not a question. My mom and I both agree, though, that breaks are for vacations, which are for doing nothing and getting bored and just being a couch potato. Which I kind of am, anyway.
I made an Instagram for my dog, Caline. Yeah, I've heard that I'm kind of crazy. So what?
Over the break, though, I'm planning to improve my photography skills so I don't have to rely on Tumblr anymore. My mom though that was a great idea! (which probably tells you a lot...)

Rookie Mag's December theme is Forever. I think that's a beautiful theme. (heh...heh- I sound reeaaally similar to my best friend's mom) Anyways, I was thinking about the time when I told my aunt about the new "in" thing here in the US, 'cause she and my entire extended family live in France. Of course. Anyways, I was telling her about all the hair bows girls my age clip to their hair, and then I told her that I felt like we were imitating the little Japanese girls from those comics in Japan: enormous hair bows, frilly dresses, and polka dots. You know what my aunt said? "I wish I were young again!" All grown-ups say that. 
Then, on Tumblr, I found this picture that says, "we are young". It's such a coincidence, but it kind of got me thinking. Those roads decked with fall's leaves sometimes feel like they go on forever. Braids intertwine in what seems like an eternal pattern. If you really think hard, a lot of things go on forever.

I love your blog. The last paragraph of this post is really fascinating- the bit about leave lined roads seeming to go on forever. I have never thought about the idea that brains go on forever. Forever is a really interesting yet frightening concept to consider but I don't think I'll ever get my head round it!
