back by popular demand.

i'm never good with these generic-update-posts where i try to cover all of the things that have been going on in my brain over the past two months or so. i need to keep my updates steadier and less wordy so i don't bombard you all with lengthy, full-of-unneccessary facts/ideas/etc pieces that will ultimately bore you so let me just start with an idea of where i am right now. 

i've come to burlington for the weekend and after my first night of just hanging out, talking blogs with a good friend- molly, founder and head bitch in charge of vixxxenblog- and sleeping, i've come downtown to lurk, get coffee, write, and shop a bit by myself while the rest of my friends snowboard at their choice of mountain around this area. once my running weather hits, it's hard to motivate me to make an effort to get on a snowboard until the next season. sitting in muddy waters allows for good conversation over freshly brewed coffee and homemade pastries but today i keep to myself. i'm tired and have settled on an antisocial day. armed with my some cash, my iphone and a nonagenda, i'm hitting the streets to hopefully take some decent pictures, find some cool things to buy and burn off the mocha cookie i had for breakfast (now that i'm back in training mode and have to watch every food i put into my body. yesterday i ran my first 5mile+ run of the season! fall half marathons are going to sneak up on me sooner than i know it and i'm hoping to lose ten pounds by cinco de mayo).

hype me?

a few-

songs that i've been listening lately. listen if you feel like it,
they're going to serve as a mini update til i have some more 
motivation to write later today or tomorrow. xoxo. maggie.














we're bound to wait all night she's bound to run amok
invested enough in it anyhow, to each his own..
the garden needs sorting out, she curls her lips on the bow
and i don't know if i'm dead or not to anyone..

come on and get the minimum before you open up your eyes.
this army has so many heads to analyze..
come on and get your overdose, collect it at the borderline.
and they want to get up in your head..

cause they know and so do i,
the high road is hard to find
a detour to your new life-
tell all of your friends goodbye.

the dawn to end all nights, that's all i hoped it was
a break from the warfare in your house, to each his own.
a soldier is bailing out, he curled his lips on the barrel
and i don't know if the dead can talk to anyone.

come on and get the minimum before you open up your eyes.
this army has so many hands, are you one of us?
come on and get your overdose, collect it at the borderline.
and they want to get up in your head..


cause they know and so do i,
the high road is hard to find
a detour to your new life-
tell all of your friends goodbye.

it's too late to change your mind, you let loss be your guide.
it's too late to change your mind, you let loss be your guide.
it's too late to change your mind, you let loss be your guide.
it's too late to change your mind, you let loss be your guide.

sea legs.

(the shins)


of all the churning random hearts under the sun
eventually fading into night,
these two are opening now.
as we lie, i touch you under fuller light.


girl, if you’re a seascape, i’m a listing boat
for the things that carries every hope.
i invest in a single light.
the choice is yours to be loved,
come away from an emptier boat.


‘cause when the dead moon rises again,
we’ve no time to start a protocol to have us in.
and when the dog slides underneath a train,
there’s no cry- no use to searching for what mutts remain.
throw all consequence aside,
the chill aspire, people set alight.


of all the intersecting lines in the sand,
i routed a labyrinth to your lap.
i never used a map sliding off the land on an incidental tide
and along the way, you know, they try. they try.
and we got sea legs
and we’re off tonight.
can i’ve that to which they’ve no right?


you belong to a simpler time.
i’m a victim to the impact of these words and this rhyme.
‘cause when the dead moon rises again,
we’ve no time to start a protocol to have us in.
and when the dog slides underneath a train,
there’s no cry- no use to searching for what mutts remain.


throw all consequence aside,
the chill aspire, people set alight.

crafty.

i've been really getting into positivity and doing things on my own and blah blah blah lately. my aunt took me christmas shopping just before new years and purchased me several books and a journal. as i've said, i'm a ways into the first of the books she got me, just kids, and i'm still loving every page. it's all about the lives and romance between patti smith and robert mapplethorpe and it makes me long to be a part of the days when it was safe and clean (by some people's standards) enough in new york city to walk barefoot and sleep on park benches throughout the summer. i imagine flowing floral skirts and gauzey fabrics clinging to the thin legs of patti and robert. i imagine a sweaty and smokey love that probably can't be attained by the likes of my generation. all i want is something real. something honest.




but anyways, back to doing things on my own and channeling as many positive vibes as possible. my journal is coming along well- or as well as a journal can come along, i guess that's up to the keeper of what lies inside. along with the idea of creating pages and stories within a journal, i've started creating some of the things i want to adorn my life with- accessories, art, etc. today i used a broken rosary from someone i care about and a favourite feather earring whose partner i've lost to make one fantastic gypsy-like earring that i'm wearing right now.


i've also been checking out astrology a little bit more and after figuring out my moon sign, i'm amazed. here's a run down of the information on personality traits i possess that i acquired from a moon sign calculator.

my moon sign: sagittarius > degree 6ΒΊ 16'

  • adventurous, friendly, optimistic, full of ideas, always on the move
  • likes outdoors and travel, hates anything boring and ordinary
  • need plenty of space and movement > drawn towards sports
  • life on the moves excites and interests
  • optimism and lack of desire to dig down into details helps to keep faith in the future
  • resilient against illnesses 
  • sees new places, meets new people, sharer of ideas
  • interested in everything new > the first to buy new gadgets
  • their homes are similar to clubs and always welcoming of new, unusual people- especially storytells of the unimaginable, unthinkable
  • best stress relief is to go for a walk- preferably in a park, open field or the woods
  • inability to move freely causes more stress


amazing. i encourage all of you to find out your moon signs. there's other information i dug up based on moon signs that i'm not going to share so hurry! go find out for yourself! xoxo. maggie.
