April Showers Bring May Flowers

Today's Kirsten Dunst's birthday. I have to make mention to her because I love her style. It looks gorgeous, but also effortless...

I feel like I've been wearing too many dark colors. It's all black and gray. So, I've decided that next week I'm only going to try and wear more color.

I received a Habitat 4 Humanity t-shirt today:

A teacher sent me some pictures from my Habitat 4 Humanity deed, so I'd thought I would share them with you...

There's always something...

Birthdays for today:
--Samuel F. B. Morse (1791): Inventor of Morse Code

--Wallace Carothers (18960): Inventor of Nylon

In a friend of mine's art class, they made lights and chairs. The light can actually turn on, and the chair is just so funky it's cool. I had to take pictures and show everyone...

On Thursday I went to my very first Saint's Day, which is a little fun-day at my college.They do it every year, but this is the first one I've ever attended. It was fun to go and hang out with friends, play tug-o-war, and hang out on the slip-n-slide. In getting ready, I channeled those great music festivals that I wish I could go to. Particularly Coachella and that amazing dressed crowd. Although this day was no where near what I'm sure was going on at Coachella.

For my work in Habitat for Humanity I received a small part in the paper. Unfortunately you are only able to see my baseball cap. What a shame...

My photos did not want to upload yesterday, so I decided to re-try today

The beach water is still a little cold:

Curiously Curious

Today is the birthday of Willem De Kooning (1904). He was a painter and sculptor famous for his work in Abstract Expressionism (you know, Jackson Pollock type stuff).

Today I did my good deed of the week. As a proud member of Campus Civitans at my college, I was able to participate in the first build for my county from Habitat for Humanity. They started building at 8a.m. this morning and should be finished by Sunday evening. It was quite an interesting even to participate in. We even got to sign the inside of the house...

Stay green on Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day yahoo set up a link on their website to give simple ways to go green and save money in the process. Certain ideals include...
--shop every two weeks instead of every week so you do not waste food.
--Larger t.'v.'s use more energy, so when buying a t.v. shop for just the right size for you.
--Decorate with plants instead of buying air freshners.
--turn your computer off when you're not using it in order to save money.
You can find more information on how to go green and save money by clicking here.

Today's outfit. The Dillards' t-shirt says 'Keep the World Beautiful' in event for Earth Day...

Google nicely decorated their logo for Earth Day...

What a day...

Daniel Chester French was born today in 1850. French is best known for his sculpting work...

John Harvard:

The Minute Man:

The Lincoln Memorial:

In 1992, Madonna signed a multimillion-dollar deal with Time Warner to form an entertainment company that would make her the highest paid female pop star in the world.

Today is the birthday of one of my favorite old time beauties--Edie Sedgwick. I think she is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Poor Little Rich Girl is one of my favorite movies, despite the fact that there is not much plot, but she is so pretty that it is just beautiful to watch. I'm curious to know what you all think of her.

Reading material. Currently I am reading 1984 by George Orwell--not bad so far...

This bag was actually found at the gift shop of an amusement park called the Great Escape, which is located in upstate NY in a town called Lake George. I absolutely love it, and Monopoly is my favorite board game. I used to own Monopoly jr when I was younger, and I currently have the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer version.

I bought this scarf from Wet Seal back in September and I really have not worn it that much. So, I've decided to try it out today...

"the shot heard round the world.."

In April 19, 1775, the shot was taken place that began the Revolutionary War.
Also, Jayne Mansfield was born today in 1933. A couple of posts ago I mentioned her in a sexuality report I had to do for my Sociology class, and she just really seemed to have great sex appeal...

Went to Open Pond today. It was built in 1983 and reconstructed in 2001. The weather was cloudy and not the best atmosphere, but it was still nice to get out...

In the log cabin there, they had an unlit fireplace:

They posted signs that said beware of alligators:

The pine cones there were bigger than normal:

The view of the pond:

"Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year..."
(it's the anniversary of Paul Revere's ride--1775)

You know how in the movie SWEET HOME ALABAMA they discus all of those towns, such as Greenville and Pigeon Creek...Well I've been to both of them. I'll say I am originally from NY, so seeing these towns was a shocker to me when I first moved down here. But, it will be 3 years in June that I've lived here, and the state seems to grow on you if you keep it interesting and visit the cool things that the state does have to offer.
Today, we went to Greenville--an hour drive and all I bought was a nail file. Then on the way home, we drove through Georgiana, which is the boyhood home of Hank Williams Sr. (well, at least for about 4 years.) Nevertheless, there is a museum there now. I've been to it twice before. We didn't go inside this trip, but I did take pictures from the outside.
