marta does 365

8

Last week I passed the 500 mark on my 365 project but forgot to write about it. When I look back, I am often surprised how different each piece is. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad, but I’m still having fun and it’s still challenging. Some days are harder than others, that’s for sure.

So if you haven’t been keeping tabs, you can check out the rest of the project HERE.

Day 570: Sam and I always watch Project Runway together and this season I feel like there’s an extra dose of crazy designers. This was something that one of the contestants said when he got eliminated, he was nuts. I kinda wish they kept him around longer.

Day 652:  When I was 15, I randomly borrowed a punk compilation cd from the local library. It had the New York Dolls, Iggy and the Stooges, The Vibrators, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Blondie, Television, The Buzzcocks and a slew of other bands. The first song was White Light/White Heat and the moment I heard it, I had that moment of enlightenment that was like “This is what I was waiting for”. The Velvet Underground came to me at a time where I was feeling pretty alone and aimless, and finding them and all the other bands/artists that were on that one weird cd, really shaped me as a person. Cliche, I know.Hearing that Lou Reed passed away today felt an integral piece of my teenage life was now forever gone, but I guess it’s going to be something I’ll have to get used to.

Day 670: I’m currently reading Gone Girl, Kitchen Confidential, and You Shall Know Our Velocity and all three of them are pretty good reads. When I was at OCAD, I barely read for pleasure and I was worried I was going to never read again, but I think my appetite for reading has increased tenfold over the last year.
