Sweet, salty, spicy and cold
These are all I can taste with a congested nose.

Hey guys! My good friend Ryan Mitchell Grey and I just uploaded a video to our cover of “#Beautiful” by Mariah Carey & Miguel! Had so much fun putting this together… hope you guys enjoy :]
Why are you #beautiful?
wanted that place between living in the moment & capturing it
Five years ago, I went on a couple dates with a guy who kept his phone next to his fork and knife at every restaurant where we ate “just in case” an important email arrived during dinner. Today the issue with cell-phones-all-day-every-day remains in a slightly different form; there’s a need to not just keep up-to-date, but to remember the moment, almost compulsively, by sharing it.
But what are we creating when we spend so much time consuming information and republishing it — a picture of who we are or who we wish we were? It’s something I wonder often, especially when I find myself reaching for my phone in bed to see “what’s new” because I can’t fall asleep, or when I pull-to-refresh Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, looking for distractions while waiting for a friend at a bar or on a subway platform for the train. Social media has become an intravenous drip of information that offers temporary hits of relief; we suppress boredom with technology.
When I started this post, I thought it would be a light recap of what I’d been up to lately, but showing you a brief moment in my day is the equivalent of saying ‘fine, thanks’ in reply to ‘how are you?’ from a passing acquaintance. Sure, you can’t know what’s happening with everyone all the time. (I wouldn’t want to, to be honest.) But it’s the difference between a conversation and small talk, an email and a tweet.
In my quest for quality over quantity, I’ve decided I’m going to write better instead of more, on this blog and elsewhere. At the end of the day, you say more in fewer words when you take the time to reflect and share what’s important to you, selectively.
Your (probably) older, wise-ish sister,
THIS IS THE HAPPIEST GOAT I HAVE EVER SEEN OMFG JUST LOOK AT ITS FACE
