“Say goodbye to one more day and another chance for you to change.”

Tomorrow Never Comes – Teddy Geiger

Eh, there is only one thing that I can really say, and that is that shit happens. You know? Sometimes things end that you don’t want to at the time, but as time goes along, you realize that everything is for the best. A lot of time people confuse being comfortable with being happy. Don’t get me wrong; you can be both. But they are not synonymous with one another.

Shit happens. Sometimes you just have to man up and move past it. If you allow yourself to continue playing the victim, it is your fault in the end. You can let…well, shit rule your life. You’ve just got to let things go.
I think that is a tough life lesson for everyone, and sometimes people don’t even realize that they are learning it.

But whatever.

That’s the end of my soap box for today! On to other things.
Yeah, see that bandwagon over there?

Bandwagon
I just jumped on it…or was pushed on it by my friend Caleb. Peer pressure…It’s a powerful force.

But yeah. My twitter account is @vivobailar.  I can’t promise that it’ll be interesting (Is anything on there interesting?) because I don’t yet entirely know the purpose of it…

Any of you Twitter vets have any pointers?

Next, in two weeks, we're having an 80s themed marching band show, and we all have to dress up. Awesome, right?

Only problem. I don't know what to wear! Any ideas? One of my friends is already doing Madonna-esque stuff, and we're trying to convince a couple of the freshmen girls to be Salt & Peppa. ;)

I need help!

And finally, random picture of the week month, I guess. I found it a while back.


Domestic Violence

This was on a scholarship finder that I was filling out. Spooky or just really resourceful?

May the force be with y’all.

“My stupid mouth has got me in trouble; I’ve said too much again.”

My Stupid Mouth – John Mayer

I realize that I’ve used this title before, but it is actually fitting this time.

It has come to my attention that my blog has recently become more public than it has been in the past.

I have since gone through and deleted things that can be easily identifiable with people that I know, and seeing as this blog has been my place to rant and be as sarcastic and mean as I want, I know that I have said some things that I do not totally mean and that can hurt others.

You know who you are, and I won’t mention you by name, but I really do apologize.

“I am seventeen going on eighteen. I’ll take care of you.”

Sixteen Going on Seventeen – Sound of Music
[I hate that musical, to be completely honest. Sorry, Oprah.]
Another writing prompt? I think so!
Today’s? List ten things that you are currently sick of.

(This should be slightly easy. I am rather talented with my whining.)
  1. Poor grammar, especially when spoken by teachers.
What is with our generation? No, that’s incorrect. I apologize to my generation for even saying that. You know who has the worst grammar these days? Teachers. I catch myself correcting them under my breath on a daily hourly basis. What is up with that? This is who is educating the future of our country? No wonder kids never learn how to speak correctly when this is who teaches us. The biggest one? Adverb usage. Por ejemplo: “How did we do on the test?” “The majority of the class did bad.” Anyone else see the problem with that? What is everyone’s problem with using –ly? They are two letters. Ugh. Sorry about the rant. It just bothers me.
2.   People being surprised that Lindsey Lohan is doing drugs again or that Miley Cyrus is dressing like a whore.
They do it like once a month. Seriously you guys? Is this news worthy? Tomorrow, I expect to wake up to “Breaking news: The sky is blue. Oh god! A white fluffy thing seems to be attacking the sky! Stay tuned for further updates!” To be completely honest, it would be a wee bit more interesting.
3.   The two males in my Econ class who keep scoring higher than me on tests in econ.
Like, seriously? One of them is about 13…in a college Micro Econ class. It’s bad enough that he’s that young and in my class. Does he have to get higher grades too? The other one is a high school senior like me, so I’ll cut him some slack.
Hmmm. How much would it suck to be everyone else in the class who is scoring less than the three youngest? That’s gotta burn.
4.   The schizophrenic Georgia weather.
In the morning? It’s 40 degrees. By twelve, it’s 80. By two? Eggs are melting on the sidewalk. Trees are spontaneously combusting. Hair is melting off of everyone who dares to step outdoors. Here’s the sketchy part. What are you supposed to wear? Everyone has been rocking the tshirts with skinny jeans and boots look lately. It’s hot. Speaking of that…
5. Ugg Boots.
Or should I say Ugly Boots. They are SO BAD! And not only are they bad, but people do such awful things with them, such as wearing them with running shorts. Who told them that this is okay?! It is just…horrifying.
6.  Taking online classes.
It is a dreadful experience. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. For serious. Unless you’re a masochist. In that case, it may get you off.
7.  The Debutantes.
No, not actual debutantes. I may be an actual one in a couple of years. No. The “debutantes” is a club at my high school. It is supposed to be a club to teach people manners, but due to its racist advisor, it is basically a club for a bunch of people who are racist against white people to push people around. Especially me. I was the pres of the knitting club because I’m cool which had the same advisor as the Debs. Yeah, no. They used me as their personal sign making bitch, and that didn’t fly with me. Ugh. Don’t get me started on them.
8. Selfish people.
This is kind of a general statement. I think everyone thinks this. But for serious.

          9.  PDA.
Sick nasty. Need I say more?
10.  Seriously racist people.
This one is pretty serious actually. Actually, I think that everyone is a little racist. (Look up “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist” from Avenue Q. It has been stuck in my head all day, and it is hilarious in a terrible kind of way.) But seriously. One of my black male friends was dating this white girl, and her guardians found out. They told him that if he talked to her at all anyone, they’d move her to a different school system. He’s been torn up about it for days. It just makes me sick. He’s a good guy.


Hm. That was harder than I thought it would be since I bitch like 98% of the time if not more. :)



On a slightly humorous note:

Q - “Did you know that the Washington Monument is actually a lifesize monument of George Washington’s penis?”
Me - “Yeah. He didn’t actually cut down the cherry tree. He was just turning around, and it got caught in the trajectory of his penis.”

“We are the champions, my friend.”

We are the Champions – Queen

I got my first award! :) Exciting!

Better yet, someone thinks what I say has substance! That someone is Bri at Prima Diva. This is so flattering! I have always been really self conscious about my writing, and to hear that someone likes what I’m saying is fantastic!

I’m using a lot of exclamation points…but I really am excited!

1. Thank the blogger who gave me the award.

Thank you so much, Bri! Like I said up there, it feels so good to know that you enjoy what I’m saying. I never really know if I’m completely boring everyone.

2. Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using five words

Never shy from the truth.

3. Pass this on to 10 other bloggers that you feel have a substance in their blogs.

To be completely honest, I don’t know that  I know of 10 different blogs that I read on a regular basis, but here I go. I’ll give you what I can.

  1. Lily at Pre-Life Crisis
  2. Helena at Life in the Pitts
  3. Sarah at The Gatsby Diaries
  4. Diana at exPress-o
  5. Caleb at Does This Make Me Look Like a Hipster?

Weird. The only blogger that is a teenager is Caleb. (And as my bff, I’m a little biased towards him. But seriously. Check him out. He’s just getting started, but he is one of the wittiest people that I know.)

“I throw my hands up in the air sometimes.”

Love the Way You Lie MASHUP” – Sam Tsui

[He has a really really good voice, and his covers are pretty ballin’ outrageous. Just sayin’.]

Sorry there haven’t been any updates for a little while. I tried to do one with the photoshoot that I did with Caroline the other day, but mi computadora hates me, so it was taking forever. I was too impatient to wait on it.

But anywho. The shoot that I did with her was her senior pictures, and they turned out cute! I was really scared that they wouldn’t. [I usually take pictures of inanimate objects and stuffs. <—That’s a link to my flickr site, you know, if you wanna check it out. ;)

Here are a couple sample pictures though. I haven’t edited any of them. I don’t know. I kind of like them the way that they are.

 At the BarnDSC_1217 DSC_1304 DSC_1466 DSC_1497

 

I’m pretty proud of them!

As soon as I slow down a little, I’ll go back to posting actual entries. So….never. Haha. But no, really. :)

May the force me with y’all!

*Insert Lacrymosa by Mozart here*

I know I usually have song lyrics up there, but the song that is in my head right now is Lacrymosa, which is classical. (Obviously. Its by Mozart.) It is a pretty balls to the wall ballin’ song. Check it out.

Also, I started reading Dante’s Inferno for AP Lit today, and I’m on the second layer of hell right now.

I’m predicting that one of the next ones is going to be college applications and then the DMV…and then someone speaking French all day.

Hm. We’ll see.

“If I win the lottery, you’ll never see me again.”

96,000 – In the Heights

Application to Tech? Check. Done.

Application for Scholarship to Tech? …Damn.

I’m still not done. And it’s due Friday.

And am I working on it now? No. No I am not. Worst. Nerd. Ever.

Ignore the sex goddess thing. I tried to crop it, and it wouldn’t let me…Don’t judge me. Gah.

Instead, I’m sitting here watching Bones. [Booth = hottest person ever.] Like, seriously. My IQ drops every time he comes on the screen. [Until I realize that he’s into nerdy girls, and then it’s right back up there again.]

Excuse me while I go fan myself in a girly Southern belle kind of way. This is better than scholarship essays any day of the week!

May the force [and Booth] be with y’all.
