staci learns to commit: part one
Today was muggy, gray and strange. I found myself needing alone time, as we often do as ladies. So I watched a movie on netflix that I have been wanting to watch on a casual day such as this, Julie & Julia (starring Amy Adams and Meryl Streep). The movie wasn’t the most fantastic thing I’ve ever seen, but it did what any good movie does, made me think. In a personal rut, Julie...
the power of right thinking.
“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.” —Philippians 4:4-8
The other day at Agora, I got this delightful wall art. I brought it back to my place really thinking I was going to spray paint it white and just hang it above my bed as a focal piece. It was Adam who had the brilliant idea of using it as a headboard. And once I saw it like that, I couldn’t bear to paint over the beautiful gold! It looked so great with all of my bright colors. Closer...
I told Adam to frolic into the ocean. He joyfully obeyed. Our sweet little set up. Oh hai, oh handsome one. “Be squinty, go!”

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it....– Howard Thurman, a little shoutout to Chase who first introduced me to this quote.

Movie Night with Christina/ The semi-end of...
For the next few months, my blog will be part nonsense and another part movie reviews as my roomie Christina and I attempt to watch a great chunk of AFI’s top 100. First on the netflix queue: The 400 Blows & 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The Cat Sits Where It Pleases
This time, it sits on my chest, purring in my face. Oh Kittles. Speaking of cats, Georgia Nicholson’s cat Angus is the only cat who has much personality as Kittles Winkleton. I just finished the final confession of Georgia Nicholson, Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? It was vair vair fab and marvy. Double cool with knobs. Ace. If you haven’t read the series, you should. They...
