Spring brings on many new feelings and inspirations. Like I do every spring, I was thinking that maybe I should get a blog, but I always start it then it isn't real... So anyway, this year I decided I'll stay with Listography. Like I do every year...

I have recently started reading her blog on a fairly regular basis. I'll be honest, I always thought of "Rachie Jane" as sort of silly, but she has some very real stuff...

Here's to the people who can keep blogs!

I've learned that everything happens for a reason. So many things in my life haven't been given to me, and then something better comes along that I achieve myself. I'm upset now, and it's not fair. And when I think about it, she gets everything she wants and I am nothing. But eventually she will be miss has-been and I will be miss now. High School will be her peak, mine will be the rest of my life.

There are so many things people need to figure out. For me specifically, I need to learn to love without a lover. It seems not fair that without one, I am lost and lonely. Without one, I ruin friendships with my stupidity. Perhaps I am looking too hard. Perhaps I need to lower my standards. But perhaps, if I am patient, he will come. But for now, a girl can dream...

  • Intelligence is key to my heart. argue with me debate me, I will fall for you.
  • Compassion is vital. A sympathy for something more than himself or humans is almost mandatory.
  • Be an arrogant ass. It's okay to be cocky. It's hot to be cocky. For some reason, girls like that. I like that. But don't go overboard.
  • Be able to watch a bad movie. Come on, girls love anything with a vampire or hey, maybe even Pride and Prejudice. It's a cl...

The INs and OUTs of "almost summer." In case you were wondering "almost summer" is a season. I just coined the term... So, here we are: The INs and OUTs of Almost Summer 2011


    • Working Out with prom, college, summer, bathing suit season, graduation, and so many other things approaching, I somehow have so much more time to work out.
    • Journaling I don't know how I'm doing it. Maybe The Carrie Diaries inspired me, but I'm doing really well so far with actually keeping up with it.
    • Being tan I know this was said in the last "INs and OUTs" but I got Jergens Natural Glow Express
    • Moving on and changing I have been so resistant to change for so long (I haven't cut my hair in 5 years) but I am now embracing change. I'm going to get a hair cut, lose a little weight, ...

The INs and OUTs of late winter and early spring of 2011


    • Sex and the City. Maybe it's just me getting older and liking it more, but most definitely.
    • Cosmopolitan magazine. Once again with the getting older thing, I can't get enough.
    • Staying under the radar
    • The sun
    • Keeping it together
    • Constantly manicured nails
    • Getting some
    • Feeling Fabulous. As if it were ever out of style...


    • Sweats The flu or on your way to dance class are your only exceptions.
    • Rain, snow, and all other weather that isn't at least 60 degrees

Lists are very soothing. I can't pinpoint it exactly, but maybe I'll figure it out...

  • the organization of a list is nice. I think it helps me organize my thoughts and feelings.
  • While I enjoy listing and find it to be a fairly classy activity, it is not difficult. I have to think a little, of course, but it really isn't hard at all.
  • They look so good. Let's be honest, the world revolves around aesthetics.
  • I can do other things while I make a list, even put the list away for a few minutes.
  • As lame as this sounds, I forget about all of the confusing and buzzing thoughts. I seriously need that time to fill and keep myself busy, but also is calming.
  • No one reads this... I can say what I want and who's going to care?

OOOHHHH, my life. How often do people have experiences like the ones I have? I am in school, studying, singing to myself... when all of a sudden, Gary Ricketts (an english teacher) walks into the room just I am belting "used to know a bitch named maggie mae, I would be up in those guts like everyday" and I look up. There he is, laughing and asks, "what are you singing?" obviously embarrassed I reply, "uuuhhh Ben Folds." With this he continues on to start a conversation about the song Bitches Ain't Shit. Now see, normally, I love a deep conversation about white man covers of west coast gangster rap, but this was so much different. The thing about Gary Ricketts is that, although he may be awkward, uncomfortable, a human dictionary? But in real life he is a very intelligent, cultured, and interesting man, I enjoy talking to him very much. I hope you understand how potentially wrong this entir...

Alright. Lets be honest with ourselves here, we will state facts first. I am a teenage girl. I can't ever make up my mind. My opinions are always changing. So here we go, the current list of "I have a huge crush on you but it will only ever happen in my dreams."

  • Ned Hepburn. It's something about a clever, cliche blogger. I can't get enough...
  • Gordon Ramsay. What an ass, but he is just so talented and attractive. man.
  • The Hutchison brothers. frightened rabbit just comes in my house and makes a mess. and I am completely okay with that. Sing me a nice little Scottish lullaby, thanks.

Something about words is beautiful. Something about Shakespeare's words are the most beautiful. His work just inspires something in me and there is something about it that captures me. I can't help but to pick out the ones I love. here we go...

    • As You Like It

Now that I live on my own, things are ssoo different. Buying my own everything and making sure I get it done is a huge change. I never would have thought living on my own would be like this. But it is and I've learned that somethings are more important than others. So, the things I must have at all times.

  • Frosted Miniwheats. Do not ask why. I don't think I've ever even had them until now.
  • Frozen Waffles. I could live on those alone.
  • Yoghurt! but none of the weird stuff.
  • Carrots. Still, no idea why I'm obsessed now.
  • Apple Sauce. Apparently I love that, too.
  • Diet Coke... But we aren't surprised about that. at all.

note: Picture is irrelevant to the list, ...

The past few days have been spent traveling and vacationing, but it's a little hard to do when it's pouring and you can only take in so much sun... so, I've purchased ATON of paper products.

  • The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz- I regret this purchase. Its not that good, but I thought I would like it.
  • The Kaplan AP US Goverment and Politics study guide- Its necessary... I don't learn anything in class.
  • A leather, soft bound journal- I want to start writing... I wish I were good.
  • The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell- I absolutely love it so far. Brilliant.

lets take a moment to discuss The Carrie Diaries. While less fabulous than I was expecting, still I was unable to put it down. Also, the fact that some things don't exactly match up with series bothers me. But I loved this deeper look into Carrie...

I have gained so much weight recently... Dear lord, it's pathetic. So, with a show coming up and college just around the corner, we're going to fix this.

  • I have a gym membership... hello!

  • actually pay attention to what goes into your mouth!
  • absolutely no making things "okay," if I can't have it, I can't have it.
  • carry around the calorie book and actually pay attention to it
  • don't be stupid... le duh.

I know what I want to look and feel like, and this isn't it.

To keep myself sane for the next 18 weeks(15 now) I bring my Ipod and try to drown out the senseless drone of girls who want to be made of plastic. So until this hour and a half everyday for 15 more weeks is over and I can finally breathe easily knowing that the only shallowness in my life will be my bathtub, I write this list of which bands I would die to see live, and which ones I already have. thank you. For your information, I bowed while saying thank you.

  • Matisyahu
  • Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  • The Bird and The Bee

Why do I love to dance? The question crosses my mind more often than it should, and yet I seek an answer each time. It's as if I am unsure, but believe me, I am not unsure. I just... forget sometimes.

  • It makes me feel good! There is not a better feeling than going through a dance and knowing all the steps and knowing you did well and looked good doing it!
  • When I dance I all of sudden forget everything. It could be the worst day of all time and as soon as warm-ups start, instantly everything else just melts away.
  • Dancing is the most beautiful form of art. In dancing you can pour your heart out and tell a story with just your body. You can express so much without words and perhaps it is more effective.
  • Anyone can dance. Dance is something that one does when you can't tell someone how you're feeling. Even if you're not a dan...
