Hello- I'm Lauren!

Nice to meet you! All you need to know about me? I love all music: indie, rock, hip hop, old music, and everything in between, old movies, screwball comedies, vintage clothes and basically I'm an old-fashioned gal who likes to pretend she's hip and modern. I am as much (if not more) a nerd as Elyse, and my nerdiness increases exponentially when we're together- hence this blog! I'm pretty sure we were separated at birth (and by a few months), because we're both nerdy about Twilight, museums, book series in which we can join opposite sides of loving boys (Team Jacob, Team Gale, etc!), and everything anthropology (Hegemony!).

We have some ridiculous moments, but I love them all (Did you know bats say "Batty bat bat"?) and I cherish every dumb moment we have, like when Elyse toenails herself. I am so glad we've started to document the dorkiness. Most recently? Elyse has discovered that I give her diabetes, and I've started to feel as sappy as her when I think about Flightless Bird or drinking tea on a porch.

Enough of the sentimental mumbo jumbo. You want to know about me! So, the best way to describe me? Probably through quotes and photos, which is exactly what I'm going to show you! Aren't you excited?! Let's get started.

"This isn't the time to make hard and fast decisions; this is a time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere. Fall in love... a lot. Major in philosophy, because there's no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind, and change it again, because nothing's permanent. So, make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask what we want to be, we won't have to guess... we'll know."

"I've always liked the time before dawn because there's no one around to remind me who I'm supposed to be, so it's easier to remember who I am."

"I've always felt out of step. Like literally stumbling through my life. I never felt normal. Because I'm not normal. I don't want to be."
