Subject:things are so good
Time:11:27 am.
Mood: psyched.
literally two weeks now.

I just found an AWESOME apartment that's cheap, in a good neighborhood, close to the subway, spacious, and inhabited by arty film buffs. :D Plus, it's in the building next to where I'm staying.

My job is badass. It's just hostessing, but I had no idea what I was getting into at "Buddakan." It's this huge, fancy schmancy celebrity haunt, the same place where they filmed some of Sex and the City. They're getting me a designer dress to work there. I lucked out...

I'm interviewing for part time gallery internships now, which is superexciting!

But best of all, school started.
I just can't believe I'm finally... in art school. Jesus, I've been working towards this practically all my life. Not to say that I don't have a long, long way to go, but I'm taking credit classes and my professors are real working artists.
Drawing I makes me want to gag, though.

I'm making friends! People are so open here... not unlike Austin, but it just surprised me a bit.

It's sunny and beautiful weather in New York City. Who will visit me first?!

Subject:life growing roots
Time:9:33 am.
Two weeks in New York City. What I've been doing:

Interviewing all the time to find a cool job (I got a medium-core job and am waiting to hear back from some), visiting apartments to live in, meeting a lot of random people from Texas through strange connections, meeting other cool people, frequenting art galleries, going out to music and dancing, painting a lot, registering for classes, riding the subway, wishing I had a bike already, paying extraordinary amounts for food, loving it...

Today I start my hostessing job (simple, pays well, "for now"), and SCHOOL! The exciting part is that I'm taking classes at FIT, the Fashion Institute of Technology! Drawing, Life Drawing, and Art History. I'm so psyched! It's art school, not community college (finally). I still have to put in my application to become a matriculated degree student, but I know I'll get in, and it's actually affordable.

Mikael and I adventure about plenty. We went to Coney Island Beach last weekend (I didn't know you could take the subway to the beach...), and to this awesome dance-party-art-fundraiser at the PS1 (a supertrendy branch of the MOMA) on Saturday. Also, Le Castle Vania played saturday so we got to go out and dance all night and hang out with electrohipsters. Huzzahoorah

My life is growing roots here already. I'm starting a job, I'm starting school, I have a few people to call and invite out, I'm learning the ins and outs, I'm looking for an apartment. Kind of unbelievable.

And my best friend is in Tokyo now. Tokyo, jesus christ. (Can't wait to visit!!) We're all scattering across this small, huge world, aren't we...

I think I'm on a life quest to figure out what my art is about. The most frustrating thing in the world!

i chipped a front-ish tooth by biting an earring to close a gap in the wiring.
i keep cutting my tongue on my newly chipped tooth, as it is so interesting within the usually static state of my mouth.

Subject:a new life
Time:1:54 pm.
Mood: floaty-excited.
I'm back from Europe, finally. The trip from Moscow took 24+ hours, but I seem to be in one piece. I have a million trillion things to do before I move on Tuesday, including spending time with John and visiting Austin (where I'll get the rest of my endless stuff :P).

The trip has left me more of a space cadet than ever.

"I love you, but I've chosen Disco." And all I want to do is drown my consciousness with dance music, spin records, make beats, move.

And make art, with an ever-evolving degree of seriousness. Art with thought-through concepts. I don't want to be a designer, damn it, I just want to explore ideas, and of course that's obvious... but it's time to apply to school again.


I can't believe I'm leaving everything behind, everything! Well, almost, but it's almost everything I've ever known. I'm certainly going to miss it all, very much. Austin. The easy, exciting, adventurous, outdoorsy, hipster, hippie scene down here. No doubt I'll be back, but I've got some serious living to do. I'm brimming with excitement!

Can't wait to see Mikael. It's been way too long.



I'm going to rock New York.

I miss my julia-life.

I'm in Russia. I've been hanging out with my mom, basically, for almost a month now. She helped me move my stuff out of Austin, we went to New York, we went to London, no we're "home" in Russia. Chillin' with my grandma.

I miss music nonstop, painting, adventuring with friends, being able to walk around by myself, going to shows, la-dee-dah-ness, my love.

Snagging a chance to use google reader every second I get to catch all the new electro >_>

Not that Europe isn't awesome, I just have a lot of living to do at the moment. I keep making lists in my head.

I miss my everyone!

I'll post lots of pictures when I return... I'm moving to New York City on the 12th of August, so Austin+Houston people let's hang before then!

Love in pieces.

I miss this journal.

I'm about to take a month trip to Europe with my mom, after which I'm moving up to New York City with my cat. It's crazy exciting... I have no idea what will happen, but I did get accepted to the School of Visual arts up there so I hope to start there in the spring (or another metro-area art school). Goodbye, sunny Austinville!

learning a lot about music production lately. and spinning records is so much fun :]

Time:11:39 am.
Mood: musical.
Yesterday, the first day of the SXSW music festival, was insane. Somehow, every time I turned around a musician I love was standing there or a VIP pass was being handed to me. Free ice cream everywhere. Saw The Whip, Dragonette, Yeasayer, Times New Viking, and Simian Mobile Disco so far. Met Dragonette (sexiness) and Le Castlevania (amazingness).

The night before, we were at this "secret" pre party at the Mohawk where Ocelot and Fluo Kids were headlining with an unannounced special guest. Turned out to be MOBY on the decks. He spun a sick set.

Come to my friend Paul's amazing and free party on Saturday with all these sick electro acts. If you're not in Austin, you should come down for this.

Subject:your everflowing thoughts ||| just don't forget to melt away
Time:8:05 am.
all you got is the rearrangeable you. rearrangeable cities, rearrangeable truth.

------------------------------------------------

Living in Austin is great. A great big part of me never wants to leave. The people are kind, interesting, and friendly; the weather is sweet; there's always something to do; I can go swimming, ride my bike, or hike whenever. On the practical side, it's here and it's cheap [in a sense, because I'm here already]. I could easily network through the art scene, and it's still totally feasible at this point in the gentrification to get an affordable studio in the East Side.

There's no way I'll be here next year.

I want to go! I'll be back home... this is home. I'm from everywhere, but certain parts of Texas (believe it or not) are a big part of me. I want to stay in Europe when I go with John and Domi over break.

I can't believe my birthday's coming up. I can't believe I've lived this long.


Believe in the subtleties of life. Everything is a part of all other things. Secretly, you resonate.

live breathing.

feel the skin of your loved ones
and think about what made its texture

make life eternity.
ask questions. question everything.
leave problems and blocks far behind...
look only at solutions.
know you are who you want to be [it works].
keep secrets and dreams like treasures
but hide nothing.
you are fundamentally connected with everything and everyone around you
share yourself and your things and your thoughts
which are things

be real

fight for freedom
all anger is wasted; abandon it
rebel when it's right, and forget the costs.
life is art.
life is fire.

|||connection|~|inspiration|||


this world turns on goodwill and dreaming. I keep realizing, absorbing it, recycling, creating. no matter what happens to you or me, anyone, anywhere... if you think it it's yours so it's all under our united control.

but it's not about control.. it's about flow. Flow power O.o

Peace.

questions....

there's a life of wisdom and wine and wind for me to ride
the days never fail me; they keep coming
washing in change washing out yesterday's shame
it turns to gold like the mistakes
I count them on the stars.
like wishes.



if I were a wish,
I'd grant myself to you.

people who eat fast food while abstaining from smoking because "it's not healthy" can fuck themselves!
[yet another case of julia-quits-smoking generates observations...]



Somebody put me back in school, I forget everything I used to know.
I used to know how to leave the boy behind
without having to watch him go. *oh*
Infidel to die for what I am doing
will happen in the morning when the mirror won't recognize me.
He holds a certain gesture when we're lovin' to ask each other
"Do you want it?" "Do you want me?"
I want it. It is you. You are where I want to be.

Subject:turning world
Time:3:42 am.
Mood: psyched and happy.
Light touch my hand, in a dream of Golden Skans, from now on.
You can forget our future plans.
Night touch my hand with the turning Golden Skans,
From the night and the light, all plans are golden in your hand.

Set sail from sense, bring all her young.
Set sail from where we once begun.
While we wait, while we wait.

A hall of records, or numbers, or spaces still undone.
Ruins, or relics, disciples and the young.

Light touch my hand...
