free radicals (happy birthday to me!)

Hey there, fellow humans. Today was my birthday! I went to the Met with my mom, and we walked through the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibit, which was everything I ever could have wanted, and more. Honestly, I loved it to death. I've been into the punk culture for a long time, but this exhibition just took my breath away. It gave me the fresh outlook on life that I have wanted.


I really liked my outfit today (credits to my mother for this picture and helping in choosing the outfit). The dress has one sleeve, which is pretty rad, and the sandals, which you can't see that well, are this really nice metallic gold that were a little futuristic, in my opinion. My bag is from Maison Martin Margiela and I use it pretty often, but it worked especially well with this outfit.


After we were done, we walked around the sculpture/painting section, which was really nice and great to look at. Degas's paintings (and this great sculpture that incorporated fabric in it, making it even more realistic) were one of my favorites; I never got a chance to really observe them that well, and seeing them up close and reading about the stories behind them helped me develop a better understanding of them. The same goes for the other paintings and sculptures, like Vincent Van Gogh's and Picasso's. Then we ate in Central Park, picked up my cake from the store that made it, and I went home and opened my presents, which were an acoustic guitar, a typewriter, a gift card, and an amazing homemade card. THEN WE ATE CAKE.

All in all, today was FANTASTIC, and I loved it so much. It wasn't what I thought it would be (which is good, because I thought that it was going to be incredibly depressing and a realization that I'm growing up and I can't do anything to stop it). -Britney
