This will have to be the easiest DIY ever. I am ashamed of myself for not seeing it before. All you need is a keychain, some chain, end clasps (if the chain doesn’t have it already), jewelry pliers, and an … Continue reading
My friend gave me an amazing eraser from Japan…but when I saw it, I didn’t really want to use it as an eraser. Okay. Super easy materials. A notebook for planning (like my Spongebob notebook? :D), a pencil for drawing, … Continue reading
Ever since I can remember, people have always asked me where I want to go college, what I want to study in college, what I want to be when I grow up. But I really don’t know. I’m always that awkward person who says “I don’t know. I mean I’m considering… but I’m still looking around.” Then I just get disappointed faces. I mean, I’m about to be senior, the CommonApp has been opened since August 1, and I still don’t know where I’m applying.
The schools within a 20 minutes of me are really great and all, but I’m ready to go out of state. I’m ready for a new life, away from everyone here. I’m ready to explore. My only obstacle is my college profile. With average test scores, I cannot compare to other students who are applying to colleges. All my friends have been stressed out over college applications, and I’ve spent my last summer days, cooped up in my room, doing nothing but eat Starbursts and talk to my friends. Meanwhile my friends, juniors even, have been visiting colleges, and figuring out what they want to do, some have even gotten accepted to college. ACCEPTED. And here I am, with a list of 3 colleges, 2 of them, my safety schools.
Part of the reason why I haven’t started is fear. I’m scared, honestly. I’m not ready to apply to colleges, not ready to receive that rejection letter from my dream school. But I’m ready for college. I just want to skip all the applications, and go to college, like many of my friends are this week. So the other night, I took some time to finalize the list of colleges I’m applying to. And now I have seven.
I miss him. I miss him so much. And I don’t even know why. I mean it was just a week and all, and I probably only met him on the second, even third day perhaps? But I still miss … Continue reading
There’s a point in everyone’s life where you just sit with your head in your hands and wait. Whether it’s in the hospital waiting room, by the phone, or even on the toilet, you sit, and suddenly every memory that … Continue reading
I am deathly afraid of needles. So when I passed out in the street (hey, I was really stressed) and woke up to find this nice firefighter taking blood from my hand and then whisking me into an ambulance with … Continue reading
So I saw this glorious DIY on Honesty WTF (I love their blog) and had to do it; I had a pair of white canvas shoes that I had gotten at Target for $10 that I had doodled on beforehand, but … Continue reading
When I first bought my guitar, the cheap side of me came through and I thought, “I don’t want to spend that much money on a nice guitar pick when I can just have this cute cheap one!” So I … Continue reading
I always have a picture of how I want things to work out. Usually my expectations are really high and mostly unrealistic. Of course, this isn’t too good, because that means when things don’t work out the way I expect … Continue reading
I’m washing the dishes when I hear it. Blasting from the antique speakers of our desktop (they still have those?) computer is the song. Our song. I drop the plate I’m rinsing and walk over to the computer room. My … Continue reading
