I believe that I often misrepresent myself when socially interacting with others. Hell, all of my closest friends and family still continue to triumph this crackpot piece of advice: "well, sarah, you really should be doing other things with your time for the sole purpose of keeping yourself busy and you will find that you are happier." My response to such abysmal advice is always the same, it goes like this: "I constantly do things that keep me busy." And before I can finish the rest of my words, the other conversator always interrupts me and says "yea, but you need to be doing things for sarah that make sarah happy...[insert more 'advice'here]. And that is when my confusion sets in--i'm so perplexed because I do and always have done things that I enjoy, that make me happy, that keep me busy, that are for me and me only...blah, blah, blah, blah. So, I must misrepresent myself alot. It's either that, or the fact that maybe,the people that keep telling me the same thing over and over in oblivion (most likely my friends & family, I'm sure) really don't know me as much as they often stake claim to.
Whomever it is that is responsible for teaching us the lessons of life (I don't mean like our parents but like this character all you weirdos refer to as "god") must be like that 2-faced cheerleader bitch girlfriend that each of us had at one point or another as a teenager. Why you ask? Simply because for each life lesson that we learn, there will be another that will come along the way that will be completely contradictory.

Open up your mind a tad...before you jump to judge another

Worked all day at a ph0toshoot on folly beach as a makeup girl for Las Olas Surfshop today. I really enjoyed spending 10 long hours outside doing that sort of thing. Sure, once the shoot came to a close around sunset, it was about time to be away from the sand of course, and we were all very tired, but nonetheless, I enjoyed every last second of it. I've never been a makeup girl for a photoshoot but I just kinda did it, not really knowing if I was going to do it well or make myself look silly. Fortunately, the setting of the shoot was at the beach, thereby making my assigned job fairly simple. The less makeup the better. I've yet to see any of the shots that were taken but they should be up online on the photographer's site within the next day or so. I will post links to the pictures at that time. All in all, makeup girl was super fun, but I would love to be able to be the actual stylist for a shoot like that. That job appeared to be the most fun of all of them. Or maybe I've just been watching one too many episodes of The Hills. Who knows...
I don't know why so many of you think that I do nothing with my time. I know that it's not my 'lack of doing things' that puts that thought into some heads; but rather, ya'lls lack of knowing things...or atleast the right things for that matter. We are such a judgemental species by nature. It's sickening.

I bought a bicycle yesterday. A huffy. A red huffy with rollover handlebars. The yard guys came late yesterday and were so delightful and helped me tighten the breaks, reposition the handlebars, lower the seat, etc. I've wanted a bicycle for some time now. I used to have one but that's a story that I will save for a rainy day.
My savvy gardening skills have given me okra, green & red peppers, sweet basil, rosemary, mint, sage, parsley, & chives. I'm extra proud.
I've decided that Breakfast at Tiffany's is probably one of the greatest movies of...well, nevermind, it's just a great movie. If you haven't seen it, you should. If you have seen it, you should again. Holly Golightly is such a mysteriously clever character.
I have red hair now, as of last Friday. And now it's time for a life without Jordan...I'll let you know how it goes...


I'm becoming so bored with the advice of those close to me. It's so predictable. It's almost like I know what every last one of you is going to say before you utter the words. As of this morning, I will stop soliciting advice...for now atleast. On another note, blogging is silly. However, in this case, I have a goal to accomplish. I'm learning that so many of those people that are the closest to me, really don't really know me at all. Friends and family alike, I hope to uncover the myth that is me, that all too many of you have never really gotten to know. Peace.
