9.19.11 // perfectly normal

I'm home in Connecticut visiting my parents and friends right now. Being home is definitely a nice break from the independent woman-esque life I've been living in California. I rarely let myself relax in California. It's strange. I don't work that much, but I'm always striving to continually move forward on my creative quest. As a result, I don't give myself much downtime to just "be". I let myself unwind a bit on this trip. I watched television for the first time in I don't know how long, I baked a ton of cookies and I made this video while my parents were out of the house.. perfectly normal behavior for any 25 year old.

I've always liked making weird videos. Not weird-weird.. but off-beat/quirky. In high school I once acted out a paraphrased version of Macbeth in my bedroom using a camera that I borrowed in my video production class. I'm pretty sure that I'm wearing my pajamas in the video that my hair is all wet for some reason. Oh, and I think there may have been false teeth involved. I also recall deciding that it was a good idea to give the video to my 11th grade English teacher to watch. She rarely called on me in class after that.

...also, it should be noted that a line from the song used in the above video - "(I'm Gonna Be) 500 Miles" by The Proclaimers - is this blog's namesake. "And if I haver yeah I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you"... what does haver mean? Check out the top left portion of this blog to learn!


  1. you're gorgeous and i would like to haver coffee with you

  2. ;-) i'll support you and your art projects. not because you're hot, but because you're actually really talented and i dig your style. now how 'bout that coffee?

  3. Ha! I've never been complimented this much by a silly-putty-sucking stranger. Thanks! If I knew who you were, I could potentially assess the coffee situation. Until then, I appreciate your support!

  4. silly-putty-sucking stranger sounds REALLY bad when reading on the internet; for that i apologize. this is a good time to switch to my real name, Merlin...NOPE even worse :-) jk, my name is water marked on all the images in my tumblr site: http://k-y-a.tumblr.com/ try google imaging my name and a bunch of creeps pop up that look NOTHING like me, wanna give you a heads up! if you come up to a certain point and feel not quite sure about the coffee situation, well that's alright, i won't be heart broken. we'll just switch to a nice cup of tea ;-)


Thanks for your comments! Each and every one means so much!
