I haven’t posted any shoe photos in awhile, so here’s some of the sneakers that I drew on with a paint marker. They’ve got vertebrae all over. I did these months ago when I had too much time on my hands, and they’re part of the very few productive things that I’ve done as a bum hahaha. Messed up my desk in the process, too. Oh wait, it’s always been messy. 😛

Inspired by the Dream Anatomy Exhibit and handouts from my zoology and anatomy classes. The half-man, half-bird skeleton is Barry Cleavin’s For the true anatomy – Early Bird.

I’m starting real “hospital duty” on Thursday. Looks like I’ve been assigned to the VIP unit. Waaa.

Around 6:30PM today in the PUP campus, at age 21, I get my shoelaces tied by someone else in front of all the students going home, like I was some bratty little kid (and some of those students might have thought I was too).  I’ve never been particularly good with tying shoelaces.  They start unraveling with every step I take and I’m constantly re-tying them.  I only know of one way of tying shoelaces, and that’s the one where you make two bunny ears and knot them together.  I don’t know how to do it with one loop because I never understood where the unlooped end was supposed to go.

And so here is the story:   as we were leaving the campus, my friend stopped to tie his shoelaces.  I noticed mine needed some tying too, and I jokingly told him to tie them for me since he was already bent down anyway.  He proceeded to do so with an “okay, sure” and wouldn’t stop even if I told him I was only kidding.  I couldn’t bend down to stop him because I was afraid of hitting his head.  Having to stand there waiting for him to finish tying one foot was embarrassing, with a lot of people passing by and looking.  Guess the joke was on me haha.  Just to make it funnier though, I was thinking of tying my left shoe while he was tying the right one.

This happened after we “finished” helping with the stage props for the forum.  Now I am beat.  One last photo below.  Good night.

Well, here is my inevitable “first post” post.  Just a little intro to this blog- it’s a little project of mine.  This is where i document the moments when (and if) I catch myself gazing at my shoes, and I mean that literally- the time, place, which shoes I was wearing, other shoes that may have been present, and my thoughts during those moments.  It’s not much, but it’s also a tribute in my own small way to the bands Mew and My Bloody Valentine.  (You can find all this written in the “About” page but I felt like putting it here too, because I can.)

I came up with this idea while I was at mass staring at my shoes instead of listening to the sermon.  I never listen to the priest, but really, I’m a good person.  Just not very attentive (sorry Father).  Here is a photo of the shoes I was wearing that time, taken yesterday.  They are gold and they are jelly shoes, and they squeak when they get wet in the rain.

Sorry about the really bad quality.  Next time will be better.  Going to sleep now
