High School

I know one day I will look back on High School and remember how easy life was back then. For now, I will keep struggling in Honors Pre-Calculus and Chemistry. I will look back on high school and laugh about all of the crazy things my friends and I did. I'll cherish these memories that I make each day. I will look back and smile. High school. A place to learn and grow. A place to laugh and love. A place to cry when you suck at math. A place that sometimes is so hard to be at, so you stay home instead. A place where there are teachers who care, and notice the little things that happen. A place to be challenged. A place where you struggle through the week and look ahead to the glorious 2 days of freedom. High school The best-worst 4 years of your life. A place for stress. A place for those days when you didn't get any sleep the night before because you were so worried about your test. A place for knowledge. A place for progression. A place for responsibility and accountability. A place for loads of homework. A place for difficult projects. A place for goofing off during study hall. High school is just a place that someday will hold a lot of memories for me, but for now I've got to keep pushing through the loads of homework and the stress of my classes. I have to study hard and get the grades. So that I, Miss Mariah Gaines, can be proud of myself when I walk out of the doors in May 2015. I will make it. I know I will.

F is for Friends

Friendship is real folks! All of last year I was hoping to find a group of friends like in the movies.  Friends that are just fun and just do crazy shenanigans all the time. I have finally found them! Court, Phoebs, Rebekah and Lexie. They are easy and fun to be around and I never have to act different or try to be someone I'm not when I'm around them. I love how I can just come to them with my problems and they will listen and comfort me instead of telling me that I'm dumb. They really care about me and I love that. That is what friendship is all about. I do not know what I would do without them! They make me a better person. They help me to hold tight to the iron eod and encourage me to be my best self. I'm so lucky!  No one out there has better friends than I do!

16 goin' on 17

I'll be 17 in a mere 17 days. I couldn't be more excited! November is such a good month to have a birthday! There is thanksgiving, black Friday, thanksgiving break, the whole sha-bang! It's like the whole month is celebrating you. It's just far enough away from Christmas that you still get a lot of presents on your birthday AND christmas. It's really just perfect. Plus we're in that cozy fall season where everyone wants to cuddle up in blankets and watch movies, which are my most favorite hobbies! The holiday season is upon us and everyone is cheery and it just feels great to be alive! Happy Birth Month To Me!

*insert a creative title that describes this post because I'm brain dead and can not think of one*

Guess who remembered she has a blog! Oh yes, me!
Recently, I've been blogging about how annoying people are and then grinding them down to dirt. I am truly sorry for that and I will refrain from those kinds of posts. A while ago I saw a post a friend wrote about me and it really made me upset to see what she had to say. I know she was just upset and that was her way to vent her frustrations and she didn't intend for me to happen upon it, but it still made me feel like dirt. I wouldn't want anyone to feel the way I felt.
Anyways, I'm SO excited that it's finally November! My birthday is T-minus 23 days away and I could not be more excited! 17! Wow time flies fast, I remeber (what feels like yesterday) when I was in Harmons telling the cashier that I was 7 and a half. Almost 10 years have passed by since then. I've grown and learned a lot. I'm grateful for everything that I've been through that has helped me become who I am today. Even the really hard times when all I wanted was to hibernate until everything was better.
I may or may have not been secretly wishing that my birthday is the best birthday yet. I'm seriously so excited to spend it with my friends! I don't even care what I recieve as long as I get to be with my favorite people in the whole world! 23 days can not come soon enough.
