Metropolis Coincidence

It was the night before my final drafting class, my finger was blistered from being burned the day before and my mind was about to turn black swan on me so I needed to take a break from drawing. I sat back in my chair and thought about watching some of that documentary that kept popping up in my Netflix top 10. It was called Future Design, and honestly it looked cheesy. That's why I hesitated watching for it before. 


As I watched the film I felt more interested in it because there was a point when they asked architect Jaques Fresco what his influence was to become one. That's when images from a black and white images from a film called "Metropolis" began playing. He said he was abut 14 at the time when this film came out in 1929. I couldn't believe the imaginative images of the future that were made over 80+ years ago. This film about the future made me think of other films that came after it's time such as Matrix and Demolition Man. Really amazing stuff. 

After the documentary had ended I went back to my Netflix main page and that's when I noticed something funny. My newly recommended movies included "Metropolis" for me. At first I thought wow that's strange, but Netflix is smart and know's how to track your movie's based on your viewing history. So I wrote it off as a normal thing. Went to bed at 4am because I couldn't stand anymore strange coincidences or drafting.


The next day couldn't come any sooner and I was on my way to my final day of drafting class. I had a strange feeling, probably because I was running late and felt like a sleep deprived crazy person. I walked into class and sat down next to some of the other girls. They were going through magazines and finding inspiration to cut out. So I to decided to flip through some magazines to pass the time. I picked up one of the random old almost nothing left to it magazine from like 2001 I believe. My tired burnt fingers turned the page hoping for inspiring shot's or something more entertaining than what was going on at the moment. I looked at the page of the magazine and almost turned to the next. My eyes got big and I felt that sinking stomach feeling from what I  had just completely randomly stumbled upon. It was an ad for the the movie "Metropolis". 

How does this happen? 

On the last night before my last day of drafting class I watch a film that show's Metropolis, then Netflix recommends that I watch "Metropolis and then on my last day of drafting I randomly open a magazine to the page featuring a picture from "Metropolis". 

I just don't know what to think of it.

Mercantile Market May 7th

Some of you may, or may not know that I have taken up a hobby of selling at Flea Markets! I have done two so far this year at the Mercantile Market in Downtown Fullerton, they're super fun and rewarding. I put lots of thought into what I'm doing because this is after all an expression of myself. There is a ton of behind the scenes work that goes into planning for these shows, I have to go hunting for pieces I know my customers will love and I try my best to listen to what you want and find it!

I also have an online store where I sell mostly apparel for baby, kids & adult so please check it out!


Here is my booth at the Mercantile Market this past May! This time around I brought my vintage clothing collection as well as second hand kids wear! Such a hit, if you love unique bright and fun clothing I have it! 
We sell succulents in vintage mugs and the're going for amazing prices! They make great gifts! Also so many people wanted to buy my display, its not for sale, but …

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.




A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…
