Last night my best friend and I were supposed to go to a Justin Bieber concert at the state fair. But, of course, he's sick! So it got rescheduled to next Wednesday. That day I was supposed to go see a free show by Lady Antebellum, but the Justin Bieber concert is now at the same time. I'm so mad! Uhh! WTF! This would happen to me :P on a funnier side, Bieber caught his own fever x)

This week is going to be so busy, which sucks seeing as its my last week of summer vacation. I have to dogsit for most of the week, I have a dentist appointment, an eye appointment, I have to get my passport picture taken, I have my cousins wedding (rehersal, ceremony, and reception), and I have to finish a chapter (30 pages and 6 questions) of AP U.S. History and write a critical lens essay for Pride and Prejudice. sounds like so much fun, right? no. not at all.
I don't want junior year to start, its going to be hell.

So yesterday I got my ear pierced (:
It's in a really random spot but I like it. I'm just slightly afraid that I either will look like a pirate or an elf. Or just stupid because I have a random spot on my ear pierced. At least my best friend got the same spot pierced on her ear. We'll either look cute or weird together! and thats what its all about, right?

Summer exhausts me, but in the best way possible. My sleeping schedule is completely fucked up and I am perfectly OK with that, mainly because its so worth it.
I love staying up late with my best friend. We can talk about nothing for hours and easily be entertained. That might possibly be a sign that we're rather dumb, but whatever; I dont care.

I now understand why Cologne by Ben Folds is called Cologne. Thanks Claire (:

Darwin Deez♥ his music makes me want to dance. I can't say that about a lot, seeing as I hate dancing

Urban Outfitters

Today my mom and I got up bright and early to be one of the first to enter the new Urban Outfitters store downtown :D It was three floors of amazingness!
The first floor consists of womens clothes, bags, jewelry, and shoes; the second floor is mens clothes, backpacks, headphones, cameras, books on topics you wouldn't expect (think farts, rude parking signs, hipsters, and sex), and little trinkets that you can't find many other places (think a whole wall of mustache memorabilia, key coats in the shape of owls, and robot band-aids); the third floor was where they had a little niche for things on sale, houseware (think faux tree branches, paintings, journals, rugs, blankets, pillows, beanbagchairs, and books about cupcakes), shoes, and the fitting rooms. I think they were really clever about putting the fitting rooms on the third floor because to get to them you had to walk past all their other merchandise and in the end you cant resist picking up a few things on the way! I was very impressed. And in this one, opposed to the one I've been to in New York City, the music wasn't as loud and therefore you could hear yourself think and you didn't walk away with a headache.

back in the day...

Back in the day this was me (: I was in 5th grade here and yes, I was a cheerleader. Not a very good one, but man did I try. I remember it being the coolest thing. Putting on that uniform was a rite of passage to being "cool". The only thing was that once I was old enough to join the team, all the "cool" people had already graduated and those that were left were just like me; not very good, a little chubby, and pretty lazy. But everyone on the team were best friends, so it was OK. And my mom was the coach so I didn't have to do much of anything (: hehe.

I found this picture and a bunch of other ones from elementary school when my mom brought home from work a disc of all the pictures she had stored on her computer there. They brought back a lot of memories, all of them good. I miss my friends from back then. Granted, I'm still best friends with my best friend from kindergarten, but I had other good friends too. Now we've all gone our separate ways and when we meet its just awkward. and sad.

I just love people.
The way they get totally sidetracked.
It's a flaw that is universal, yet never any less irksome.

Let me just say one thing, though.

Fuck you.

For the rest of the summer and for the next school year I am promising myself that I will make an effort to look good every single day. I will do something with my hair, have a pretty outfit, and (reasonably) perfect makeup.
By doing this for myself I'm hoping that it might just make me feel a little better. What with the upcoming classes and extraciriculars that I'll be taking I'm going to be feeling pretty run-down all the time. If I have a good appearance on the outside, I'm thinking that it'll make the inside a little happier.

Urban Outfitters is opening a store in my city on August 19th! It opens at 10 and I'll be waiting outside at 9:30. I'll have my mom's credit card handy, ready to spend far too much money on clothes that I don't really need. It's going to be great!

life's a beach?

I'm very proud of myself, I went to the beach two days in a row and didn't get burned! Woooo! :D When I'm by myself I actually look a little tan...ish.

Tonight I'm going to a show at some little coffee house and I'm kind of excited. Not so much for the music, but for the coffee. I've been feeling very bored ALL THE TIME, so a little kick from some well-made coffee would be nice.

Has anyone else ever watched jpmetz on youtube???? she pretty much makes everyfrigginday better. :D

But underneath all of this, I'm sad. and I don't even know how to explain why.

Being the huge Harry Potter nerd that I am, I regularly go on the site to get my Potter fix. Today when I went on, what do a I see but a picture of Emma Watson, the actress who plays Hermione Granger, sporting a new pixie haircut! :O
I'm amazed! I'm surprised! I'm impressed!
It's not something I ever thought she would do, but I have to say that I like it a lot. I think you have to have the right face for a pixie cut, and she has it.

However, if I had to pick between her old hair and her new hair, I would go with the old. But thats only because I could never imagine Hermione with a pixie cut x)

I love when it rains. If I'm home alone I'll mute the TV or anything else that's making noise and listen to it pound on the roof. I'll close my eyes and forget everything else and feel a complete calm wash over me. The sound is at its best when its pouring out. If the rain drops aren't too big or if its really hot outside I'll go stand in it. The cool drops falling on my face and arms feels so wonderfully cold that I could stand there in that moment forever.
I did that today.

I'm glad people can't see my house or most of my driveway from the road in the summer or people driving by would probably think I'm a lunatic. I stand in the rain with my arms and face turned towards the sky, I take pictures of my garden, I pose with lawnchairs, and I appear to be cursing the heavens. When I have an urge to do something, I don't ignore it.

whaaaat? :O

Tonight my friend and I went to go see Inception. In her words, it left me feeling mindfucked. It was crazy! Most of the time I didn't know what was going on but at the same time I didn't really care. I liked it.

did you know how fun those little kid mall cart things could be? Neither did I until tonight :D

time machine please?

I really want to go back to the Harry Potter theme park ): I'm looking at pictures from my trip and I miss it. I was there a month ago exactly ): I can't believe its been that long already! It sort of feels like just yesterday...

I also would like to go back in time to the moment when I decided that I wanted to go to Italy instead of Germany with my school. One of my bestfriends is on the Germany trip right now and its making me want to be there soooo badly. But hopefully Italy will be just as amazing. But some aspects of it wont be, only because I'm only friends with a few people who are going. Oh well! Everything I'll be seeing in Italy will be better, I at least have confidence in that.

On my agenda for today is maybe fiddling with my new tripod? If I can get my lazy butt outside I plan on taking some pictures with it! wish me luck on getting up the energy! hahaa :P

Then later tonight my mom and I are going dress shopping. My cousin is getting married at the beginning of September and I'm going to do a reading during the ceremony so I need to find the perfect dress! such pressure! I haven't got a clue what to wear, but hopefully I'll find something suitable.
Hot Topic has also just released a new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows shirt which sports Harry's picture with the label 'Undesirable No.1' and imma gonna get it! :D
^look at it!
