Bon Anniversaire Maroonsparrow!

WordPress just alerted me that today is my blogs FIVE YEAR anniversary! WOW! I can’t believe its been so long and I’m really thankful to those who read this.

This blog has really been neglected since coming to CCA. I always have so much to cary that most of the time I don’t have my slr with me so most of my pictures are on my phone, and I end up not being able to post anything for months at a time. I’m not really sure who reads this blog or what appeals to them but its nice that people have stuck with me this long.

For me this blog has been really important. It is a journal of me growing up, my accomplishments and failures and perfect place to share my projects. I don’t see any end for this blog anytime soon but I do hope that some day I get my shit together and do scheduled once a week posts.

Thank you guys so much! My kitty and I appreciate it!



For giggles here are some images from the first month of my blog, June! I think I was 16 in these pictures! I know I have changed a lot but its kind of weird how much I has stayed the same.

First year, September:

Fun too stumble across these pictures since my birthday is September and these pictures are from the beginning of my senior year of high school. My birthday is this week and I just started my last year of college. Its almost to much to think how long ago that was and how much is different.


From my birthday. It was fairy tale themed and I made my outfit from a curtain.

Japan Expo/Miss Harajuku Fashion Show

Saterday of Japan Expo USA second impact I modeled for my friends fashion show. Miss Harajuku is a j-fashion second hand and consignment shop in the bay area. So far she is just online but I know she is hoping to expand.

I wore BABYtssb blouse and jsk from the shop.

Japan Expo/Magic Knight Rayearth

For more then a year Jobi, Shannon and I have been trying to do a Rayearth group but we were all so busy it just didn’t happen. Finally we all got it done and were able to get together at the same place.
I picked up the materials and made the costume in about a day and a half while back in Humboldt. Am I super proud of it? No, but it was something quick and simple to appreciate a childhood favorite show and good excuse to hang out with those cuties.

We went to Japan Expo and even my friend/housemate came with us! She borrowed one of my first costumes, Ash from Pokemon.
