Broken Social Scene - Anthems for a 17 Yr Old (Ghost World)

So High Schools over.
It felt like everything i thougt it would but i couldn't emote.
I will miss how easy it was, so easy, to have fun and laugh and fuck and fight and drink and lie and smoke. To connect to one another and believe in nothing.

I'm leaving behind routines and walls and floors, fat security guards, couples dry humping on the staircases and girls taking pictures of themselves in the bathroom mirrors.

I will never get the chance to say thank you to that one janitor, who said good morning to me every single morning.
I will never get the chance of telling the deserving few people, that they should fuck off foever,
or something to that extent.

But I have declared my love to the right people within these past years.
and i suppose i accomplished everything that i should of
and shouldn't of.

When i'll look back on high school i'll remember
that i never gave a fuck.
So , so long lonesome!!!!

I can no longer....
call myself a weekend warrior.
The job I had set up fell through, no one is hiring, & every day of the week is a weekend.
So I sit here in the freezing air conditioning, listening to the whistling of the moist air tease a leaf that it might escape & live peacefully in my room.
Although I am currently jobless, my days have been filled with adventures to thrift stores, Target, & parks. Eating pink watermelon and white lemon Italian Ice every night, staying up late reading fashion blog after fashion blog, & adventuring foggy trails & chasing after an unknown species.
Let me tell you, it's been quite fun.

I don't have much more to say besides that I was in the mood to do a little post. I have a few pictures I'd like to share that I've been collecting.
Che-che-che-che-check-uh-CHECK IT OUT.
Bambi is my favorite model.
Pink haired Cobain is my current background.
Don't deny the POWER of Bowie.
JDepp with his niece.
I've just been so into my music lately that I'll just have to share with you my current favorite.
This is more like it.

Summer time...
& the livin's easy.
Mia & I have been doing zero blogging lately...mostly because we're doing things more like this...

I decided since I just got a new laptop (woohoo graduation!) that I'd post what I've been collecting/doin'.
Summer so far has..n't really been feeling too much like summer. The weather has been (smuh+shitty=) smitty & humid. I've been lacking the urge to dress any forms of nice. The day's have been busy though & I'm enjoying what summer has brought to me so far.
But first off. BLACKHAWKS WIN THE STANLEY CUP! Did a victory lap with friends around the deserted streets and screamed to the street lamps above us. Ending the night with slurred orders to the obviously irritated Denny's waitress, who was probably wishing she too were feasting with friends at 1am. BLESS her.
With that of course comes a parade. Which was today. Being fallen on by a fat drunk man and the killer humidity was worth it when the team rode down Michigan Ave. in double decker buses and the silver cup shining as flakes of red and white stuck to the sweaty faces of die hard fans. In other words, Chicago is packed high with pride.

As far as school goes, I'm done. I, Elli, is no longer a High School student. I'm now a freshman all over again. Surprisingly, this doesn't bother me. Yes, I'm nervous. But I just ended something great to begin something great. Our graduation is this Sunday. Except my idea of graduation doesn't involve passing of axes and chanting my city's name to a bunch of sweaty, crying family members.
Here's to you class of 2010.

-Joy Division
My dad put a mix of their greatest songs in the car & now it's the only thing that's played. Ian Curtis' mesmerizing voice makes you want to dance. This dark, post-punk 80's band is the tits. They aren't super well known, but I highly recommend to those who haven't heard. Urban Outfitters actually made a shirt with their album Unknown Pleasures cover on the front. Curtis suffered from epilepsy & he eventually hung himself in May of 1980.
-My ipod!
For the longest time I avoided my ipod because I knew that it would just be clicking through a hundred songs just to get to one I wanted to listen to. BUT a few days ago, I stayed up till 4am clearing my ipod of unwanted songs & downloading the one's I've been dying to get. Now, I can't take my hands off of it.

So, let's talk fashion. Eh?

-Rumi Neely for RVCA
Although she only has two pieces up for sale as of now, they are still two pieces I'd wear on a day to day basis. Her Mila-Fifth Element-inspired formfitting dress is simple, but the shoulder and arm cut out detail is fuunnnnnnn-n.
-Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony
The lookbook in it's self is enough for me. The shoes are killer, the dresses are flowy with eye catching patterns, & Chloe looks like she owns the city that stands meekly behind her. The light layers are great for summer and the flimsy skirt paired with moto boots is made for the heat.
Hopefully I'll keep this bloggin' thing on a roll instead of waiting months to post again.

Chacha on!
