When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I would buy Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more.

You know it’s not your style, but it’s right there, so you try it on anyway.”

It was the greatest sensation of existence:
not to trust,
but to know.
"You're the strangest person I ever met,
she said & I said you too & we decided
we'd know each other a longtime"

Sometimes the world fails to see my witty, fabulous personality upon first glance. But this semester presented itself with some wonderful new ladies who are just as quirky as me. For various reasons, but mostly because of my love for them, I've decided to give them their own post.

First up, Ally Flick
She's just the bee's knees, and was the first to request a special spot on my blog. She recently informed me that she's read my blog all the way back to the beginning. I love her laugh, and the smile she always brings to our room.

Next is Jessica Chiodini. I've never had a real stalker...until I met Jessica. Our class schedule is such that see her quite a few times every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. At first it was a little weird, but now I love it. She listens to my radio show every week, and discovered my blog before I told her. She has fabulous style, and a very impressive Pinterest account. She doesn't get tired of me telling her how much I love her, and is going to do
great things for AGD.

Finally, Emily Hagen. Ladies (and probably not gentleman), meet my new roommate. She's an Art History major, and (after a year!) is now an AGD. She has, and I quote "devilish good looks" and has a knack for ruining all my pick up lines.

Story People

Tonights guest artist concert featured percussionist Nathan Daughtrey. He performed 4 short songs, each based off Story People, which he composed himself.
Story People was created by Brian Andreas. It started out as an internet experiment called the Hall of Whispers, where he asked people to share about their experience of being alive. Soon he had over 4,000 stories. Brian knew he had to do something with these stories, so he turned them into art.
The first song I heard tonight was inspired by 'Unheard Music':

Anyways, it was beautiful.
