For the lack of posting as of late.
Moving into dorms, school, work, and visits from a few of my favorite people has had me pretty busy.
I find myself reading tons of textbooks and sleeping as opposed to spending my average amount of time on the internet.

Soon though I'll be back to posting a bit more often.
Maybe even with some mildly exciting content.

For tonight I leave you a picture of my favorite little bug.

To do lists.

With the beginning of a new semester and the excitement of a new home I have a few expectations of myself over the next few months.

I'm hoping having a little guide of things I will want to accomplish on such a tight schedule will help motivate me when I am feeling a little anxious and exhausted.

Essentially things I wish to accomplish by or keep up with until the new year.

  1. Eat healthier - being a vegetarian people always assume I am a super perfect  specimen for healthy eaters. However, my diet pretty much consists of carbs. With a new kitchen - that houses and actual fridge - I really hope to start cooking dinner and trying to eat a bit better.
  2. Get in shape - no excuse not to being in walking distance to the school gym.
  3. Quit smoking - no explanation needed.
  4. Get a new camera.
  5. Start a 365 project.
  6. Mail these packages I have had for months.
  7. Stay organized throughout the semester.
  8. Make my dorm my own this time around.
  9. Stay focused.
  10. Find something I am interested in and really get involved volunteering or taking a little class once or twice a month. (For sanity's sake.)
  11. Read a book a month - other than text books.
  12. Keep my blog updated and interesting.
  13. See Drew and Sarah.
  14. Make good grades.
  15. Try harder.

this is luciano.

luciano giarrano.
or luci (loochee) for short.
we have been together for four years.
i would tell you our romantic love story. but i figure i can save that for another more nostalgic day.
luci can do anything.
he can build houses and make them work.
he can take pictures.
he can make movies.
he can cook.
he drives super well.
he always smells like flowers.
he is great with little kids.
he is good at being social.
he likes good movies.
after he watches justified he talks in a southern accent for a few hours.
he has a freckle behind his ear that matches the one behind mine.
he loves me.
he loves me even when i'm impossible.

franklin the turtle.

he is a turtle.
he swims a lot.
i think if he was giant he would eat me.
he seems grumpy.
he has an awesome fish tank.
he eats very stinky food.
he also poops a lot.

a cat named eloise.

meet eloise.
eloise is slightly crazy.
she likes to show off her cool cat moves to new people.
she likes to catch bugs.
she likes to go outside but she isn't supposed to.
she want's to eat franklin.
(also franklins turtle food makes her rather high.)
she is a huge cuddle bug who likes to lick my eyes when i am sleeping.
she is the best.

an awkward introduction.

hi. i'm hilary.
this is me:
- i'm an art education major.
-i hate the shift key, but i write in mostly capital letters.
- i have a cat named eloise.
- i have a turtle named franklin.
- i have a boyfriend named luciano.
- i kind of go without direction a lot. well i don't even really go.
- i am very scatter brained.
- i have been buying lots of purple things lately.
- i like soda.

okay. so i am pretty new to actual blogging. the kind where you don't just repost pictures and make vague statements about life.

life has been feeling very stale and rather uncomfortable lately. i'm at one of those stages in life, i'm not sure which one really. just one.
either way, it's led me to feel i need to share things, nothing in particular but also maybe everything. not with anyone but maybe everyone.

anyways, this is where i think i will start.
