I don't know much about 1+1

I never realized how beautiful this song was before because I couldn't get past how it sounds like she says "algebuh" instead of "algebra" but this video was insane. It's from fellow blogger (HAH) Jay-Z's website and he took it backstage at American Idol. He captioned it thusly:

Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time.

BRB, crying :')

melancholy ah

As a giant Sofia Coppola fan, I've proven that I'll sit through any movie (any) that has stunning visuals. That's why I'm so excited to see Lars Von Trier's Melancholia.

maybe i'm just crazy

Well, I think it's about that time again folks. The once-every-1/4-year post from yours truly. I've had some ideas bouncing around in my head about my blog lately so there will certainly be changes (not to mention more posts) coming.

For now, I wanted to share my summer through photos. I've recently become engrossed in Instagram, the iPhone app with the fun effects that acts like a second Twitter for photos. Twitter is like the know-it-all big sister to Instagram's dumb-but-pretty younger sis. That is to say it's fun, effortless and requires little thought. Here are some of my Instagram captures to date...

Summer reading, Mexican brunch, party on my family's sailboat what whattttt.

On the plane to beautiful sunny Winnipeg, 2 of the best (one you may know as Pullteeth in Winnipeg, the beach (it was +30 degrees!), the most amazing drink invention ever; the Bulldog Beergarita.

My janky sparkle nails, Stu with the best tag I've ever seen, a faraway beach in Whistler, my new varsity jacket.

self-explanatory, Stu's tattoo - not new (I think it' unreal), waiting for the Greyhound to Penticton with my crochet TOMS, Plinko gumballs at the bus station.

Penticton private beach paradise, Rickards White forever.

There's a little taste of Instagram. If you don't have an iPhone, you can check it out at this awesome third-party site called Gramfeed. If you DO have Instagram, follow me! My user name is stefinmotion.
