My life is the epitome of awkward.

That awkward moment... when your whole entire life is an awkward moment.  Exhibit A: I was walking out to my car after school and I totallt face planted it in the snow.. and guess what I did. Laughed. I just started laughing like a maniac! And I couldn't stop!

Thank you Rachel for introducing me to this song:) it's my favorite!

I believe.

I believe minimalism is a bummer.
I believe in being underdressed or overdressed always.
I believe that my crafts and posts are award winning even though they've never actually won anything.
I believe anything handcrafted is life-enhancing.
I believe colors can't clash.
I believe in irreverent luxury.
I believe my blig is the key to YOUR happiness.

I know that I've like bombed my blog this week... but there has just been a lot on my mind!

Please hustle.
I think I'm going to die of that seasonal depression thingy if you don't come right now.
Winter is nice and all. You know, Christmas, sledding, other winter activities. But there is only so much you can do when it's -500 degrees every single day.
In the summer, the possibilities are endless! You can have endless amounts of fun! And you create so many good memories,  summer is amazing!
Staying out late,
Summer rain,
Outdoor movies,
Sleeping out on the trampoline,
Going boating,
Going up to bridalveil,
Playing in the waterfall,
Bike riding,
Long boarding,
Lazy days,
The list goes on and on. I just L.o.v.e. Summer! I want it to be here so badly!
I can't wait to be singing... "what time is it,  summertime! " (I LOVE highschool musical btw)

It hurts...

Words hurt. That is all there is to it. No amount of "I was just kidding! " or "I am so sorry!" Will ever fix it. Thanks "friends" you made me feel fantastic tonight. Think before you speak.

I have been blessed with a new found freedom: turning the big 1-6!  16!  What a great age:) Driving, Dating, Highschool,  it's all just fun stuff! Driving above all is my favorite. I don't feel confined anymore, I don't have to wait on anyone. I can just go! I am free! I love this new feeling or responsibility and freedom.  It makes me feel like such a big kid:) The next step in freedom is highschool graduation, which is still quite aways off. For right now I'll be content with the freedom of 16!

One Tree Hill

Okay, I know that this show is so "old" (from the early 2000) but it is so good! I'm obsessed I talk about it all the time and can relate anything to it! When I find out people have actually seen it I get so happy! (Don't judge!  It's an "old show" remember?) I wish I lived in the small town of Tree Hill. With Lucas, Nathan,  Peyton,  Brooke,  Mouth, Skills, Karen, Keith, Andy, Deb, Jake and Jenny! Ahhhh! I just love it so much! Half of the time I don't even know why I watch the end of almost every episode I bawl like a baby. The mesaages the show portrays just really get to me *Wipes away a tear* This series has completely dragged me in. Like it is funny, and dramatic, sad, happy all bundled up into one AMAZING t.v. show! I didn't even realize a show could be this great! It's just a good, I had a *enter any adjective positive or negative here* day, I think I'll watch some One Tree Hill. Oh man:) If you've never seen it.. I strongly COMMAND you to go watch it!! It's on Netflix!

I don't want to be.

I don't need to be anything other Than a prison guard's son I don't need to be anything other Than a specialist's son I don't have to be anyone other Than the birth of two souls in one Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from.
I don't want to be Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately All I have to do is think of me and I have a peace of mind I'm tired of looking 'round rooms Wondering what I've got to do Or who I'm supposed to be I don't want to be anything other than me
I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn I'm surrounded by impostors everywhere I turn I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn Am I the only one who's noticed? I can't be the only one who's learned.
I don't want to be Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately All I have to do is think of me and I have a peace of mind I'm tired of looking 'round rooms Wondering what I've got to do Or who I'm supposed to be I don't want to be anything other than me
Can I have everyone's attention please? If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave I came from the mountain The crust of creation My whole situation made from clay to stone And now I'm telling everybody
I don't want to be Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately All I have to do is think of me and I have a peace of mind I'm tired of looking 'round rooms Wondering what I've got to do Or who I'm supposed to be.
I don't want to be anything other than me.
I don't want to be I don't want to be I don't want to be.

I have contagion.

You know, That one disease! The one where people have the "flu" but 24 hours later they die. Yep, I'm next. Say your goodbyes now people. In 24 hours I will be no more... like for real though. I feel like death. I couldn't even walk down the hall to my bedroom after I got done watching bunheads. I almost passed out when I stood up. So I put my blanket around me and crawled to my room. Let's just say... I'm getting WAY too old for that kind of stuff. I feel yucky and I want to sleep but I'm not tired and my head is pounding.... yep. This is it, contagion has reached me. Be careful,  you could be next

Winner winner, chicken dinner.

In English they made me enter a poetry contest. Of course, I totally forgot to write my poem for homework. So in the five minuets before class started I hurriedly scribbled one down on some paper.  I entered it into the contest not expecting anything. This morning when I checked my email and this is what I saw...
Yep. I won the poetry contest and they're going to publish my poem in this poetry book. Maybe I should start doing all of my homework in the 5 minuets before class starts;)

New year, new motivation :)

This is my motivation collage for the year! (It's not done yet, don't worry!)


Okay I know I've written a post like every single day this week... but who cares! I've been in a writing mood!
I wish people would validate others morw often. Not compliment, validate. Sometimes conpliments are insincere, said just to be nice or make someone feel good. But really it just gives them false hopes.
We should VALIDATE! Give an honest sincere validation. Tell people what you really like about them. Not "I like your shirt". Explain to them how you like their simple(or complex depending on the person) personality traits. How you have noticed that they are so nice and friendly to everyone, even wgen no one is around to hear/see them being kind. Or how you like their determination to suceed in life. Instead of the very over-used, somtimes insincere "compliment".
Now go, go out and validate!

10 essentials of life


Sunday, January 6, 2013


Harry Potter is amazing!:) Your argument is invaild. What other book series can just give you the feeling that
HP does? After any of the books, let alone the whole series! JK Rowling is seriously the most amazing lady, to have created such a great world. The world of Hogwarts. Let's be honest.... Harry Potter has got to be pretty legit to have it's own theme park! I just love Harry Potter, no other book/ series can even compare. Nothing even comes close! Harry I love you:)

Missing someone is like trying to remember someone you have never met. It hurts and you try harder and harder to remember how they made you feel. How they made you feel important, like you were the most amazing thing in the world. How they made you laugh and smile so hard you look like an idiot. How you could be 1000000% yourself, there was never and judgment. They sacrificed for you. They offered support, advice, and help when you had a problem. Just listened; let you vent for however long you needed then gave you a long meaningful hug afterward. You feel so lost and alone. Like no one understands or gets you like they did. How are you not supposed to be sad? Losing the person who was your whole world. Who you could laugh, cry, be a dork around, never canceled plans, was not ashamed of you, wanted to show you off and tell the world about you, wanted to be with you as much as you wanted to be with them. How are you supposed to forget all of that? How can you be happy? I feel like something is missing in my life. I feel empty inside, and not a single person understands.
