calypso, alula, lily pad ponds, and fireweed

So, my sister (Alula) and I went on a little trip to our farmhouse, and we invited some of our old friends to come and visit and hang out! We invited Calypso and her little sister!!

Anyway, Alula and I got there a little after lunch time and so we went through some of our old stuff to bring home.

An anklet that I bought with one of my best friends. (We have matching ones.)

Earings that I got when I first pearced my ears

Bracelets that match my earings!

Pens, pens and more pens!

When Calypso got here we went for a walk and just talked, catching up on life. I told her about some of the drama at my school and she told me about the stuff thats been happening at her school, which are wildly different things. Alula hung out with Calypso’s sister for a while as well.

Calypso and I walking on my driveway surrounded by fireweed

Then we had a roast chicken for dinner! Yum!

Unfortunately I was feeling really sick, with a sore throat, blocked nose, and a headache. Yay me!

After dinner we watched a movie and played some games, then went to bed.

On Saturday morning I made banana on toast and a tea, and Calypso had this cookie spread, that my dad had bought, on toast. We then decided to walk around and Calypso wanted to go to the creek when I suggested we go to the lily pad pond.

My breakfast!

My dad then took us to the lily pad pond where we took some photos, then everyone climbed this massive hill, and these three kangaroos came out of no where I ran at Calypso’s sister, making her freak out and twist her ankle. I ran down and along the pond to dad, when another kangaroo came out of no where and passed where I’d just been. Terrified that I was going to get attacked I ran faster and called out to dad, and he brought his truck and picked up the others and went home. (My dad was fixing a broken gate at the time.)

The whole experience was so thrilling!

When we got back we had gyoza, which is Chinese dumpling kind of thing, for lunch. We also watched The Purge, which is such a good movie! It started getting late and we packed up all our things and put them in the car. We dropped Calypso and her sister off and headed back to the city!

And I also started listening to Ruth B.’s new album! It’s so good!

So that was my weekend. What did you do?

girl boss – season 1

Inspired by Sophia Amoruso’s best-selling book, this series follows the rise of Amoruso’s multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal. Britt Robertson plays the starring role of Sophia, a rebellious, broke anarchist who decides to start selling vintage clothing online. As her passion – and retail fashion empire – begins to grow, Sophia unexpectedly becomes a businesswoman, who starts to realise the value (and difficulties) of being the boss of her own life. Alongside the likes of Charlize Theron and Kay Cannon, Sophia Amoruso serves as an executive producer.

I’ve decided to start doing these with episode by episode updates and then uploading it all at once! So the layout for me talking about this show will be slightly different to my previous posts.

If you haven’t heard of Girl Boss watch the trailer, but don’t continue to scroll if you don’t want to be spoiled!

Episode One: Sophia

girlboss

This is the pilot episode where we are introduced to Sophia. The episode starts with her quitting her job at a shoe store, and later she meets with her dad for dinner. Along the way she steals a carpet and buys a very valuable jacket for $8. She then puts it on ebay to find that it bids for $500! You get to see that Sophia is kind of a crazy character, and she does what she wants. But you can’t help but like her.

Episode Two: The Hern

girlboss

In this episode Sophia discovers she has a strange bump and goes to the free clinic to get it checked out. She also goes to an estate sale looking for vintage clothes and looses all hope when the closest is found empty, but she then uncovers a trunk full of vintage clothes! Sophia starts to get semi serious about this career buying a book to find out how to run her ebay business! (Or more accurately, stealing a book!)

Episode Three: Thank You, San Francisco

girlboss

Sophia shows Shane – the guy she is kind of seeing – around San Fransisco. She shows him all the things to love, and all the things to do; you also discover that she is terrified of Bridges. This is the first episode where you get to see a bit of Sophia underneath her carefree self. You learn a bit about her past, while she moves into the future. She’s still struggling to find a name for her business, and finds inspiration multiple times, but continues to doubt everything she comes up with. This episode is great, and you can’t help but love Shane! He is just so sweet!

Episode Four: Ladyshopper99

girlboss

This is the episode that shows Sophia’s dedication to her growing online business. She gets a complaint about a wedding dress that she just sold, saying that it was discoloured. Even though the “discolouring” was clearly done by the customer, she gets them to send it back and she’ll get it dry cleaned for them. But this dress is on a time limit, and she’ll do anything to avoid a bad review. She faces so many setbacks and it comes to her having to cross the bridge… on foot. And she does it! She faces her fear of bridges just to deliver that dress! This is one of my favourite episodes because you see how much she wants this online job to work!

Episode Five: Top 8

girlboss

Sophia does’t include her best friends, Anne, in her top 8, because she wants to include businesses, and they end up fighting over it. Sophia reflects back on different memories she has shared with Anne, including how they met, and ends up adding Anne to her top 8. I love this episode because it’s where Sophia realised how important Anne is to her, and how she shouldn’t let her business ruin her friendship.

Episode Six: Five Percent

girlboss

Shane is going on tour, and Sophia is working at an art school so that she can get health insurance to take care of her Hern. She likes working there because she can still work on her online business, all she has to do is ID all the people wanting to enter, but when she gets health insurance she quits her job, wanting to take her fashion brand to the next level.

Episode Seven: Long-Ass Pants

girlboss

Sophia buys a pair of vintage pants online, cuts them into shorts, and sells them for a massive profit. This is all good until the original owner shows up and her door to talk to her about how she just ruined a pair of pants. Sophia and this lady end up spending time together, and they share little parts of their past until her unexpected visiter gets the bus back home. A piece offering is left in the form of a beautiful vintage dress, that Sophia chops up and sells. This shows how immature Sophia can be, but I still love her!

Episode Eight: The Trip

girlboss

Sophia finally goes to visit Shane on tour. She road trips with Anne and Dax, and the couples each have their own problems. Fortunately both couples were able to work things out, but it raises the question if Sophia and Shane are really compatible. I love this episode, and I still can’t believe how sweet Shane is! Also, Sophia is the one to fix things after the fight, symbolising that she has really taken a step up in her maturity.

Episode Nine: Motherf*ckin’ Bar Graphs

girlboss

Sophia wants to take her online store to the next level. She wants to get an official office, only… she needs her father’s help. She asks him, and he agrees, but he wants to be the one to manage the rent. Infuriated, Sophia declines the offer and ends up renting our a warehouse instead. I love this episode, and I love how determined Sophia is to be independent. She knows she can do it, and she has faith, even when her father doesn’t.

Episode Ten: Vintage Fashion Forum

girlboss

Annie asks Sophia if she can work full time for her as an employee as she already does a lot for the business anyway. Sophia rejects her. And the other vintage sellers get Sophia banned from eBay! What is she going to do!? I feel like Sophia can be such a selfish character sometimes. (I still love her though.) She just shot herself in the foot for no reason. (Figuratively speaking, not literally.)

Episode Eleven: Garbage Person

girlboss

It’s Christmas time, and Sophia decides to go and find her mother, who had abandoned her years ago. She finds her as a struggling actress, who is trying to land a new role. Having not received the role she flips out, and Sophia sees why she doesn’t need her mother back in her life. I loved this episode because Sophia learnt that she doesn’t need her mum to fill the gap she left because Sophia is better off without her.

Episode Twelve: I Come Crashing

girlboss

Sophia finds out Shane cheated on her! She saw him! *world explodes* Shane cheated on her! How could he?! I thought he was such a good guy! Ugh!! This made me so angry when she found out and I was so happy when she finally said something to him about it! She did in no way deserve that, at all. He needs to be forgotten! And I swear, if there is a new season, and he comes back, I’m gonna… throw something! …Sorry, I’m not very good at aggressive talk.

Episode Thirteen: The Launch

girlboss

Finally! Nasty Gal is back up!! AND they have a party, AND she sells out! She sold out! And the episode ends with them getting so many more requests about clothes! Surely the show can’t be over, there’s so much more about Nasty Gal and Sophia’s life to explore. We can’t leave it all there!

 

girlboss

And that is the evolution of Nastly Gal! I really liked writing in this fashion, even though it took way longer and was kind of tiring, having to write after every episode, it was so worth it! So I’ll probably end up doing more posts like this in the future!

milk and honey – rupi kaur

This has a collection of the most beautiful poems and sentences I have ever read! I bought this on a whim, because a friend of mine really loved it, and damn, I’ll never regret that decision!

This book is a collection of poems about love, loss, trauma, abuse, healing, and femininity.

I wanted to share my top 15 of her poems. They are all amazing, but some in particular just reached so deep into me, like I related to them on another level.

  • People go but how they left always stays

This quote she wrote is so so true. People WILL leave you, and you might forget them with time, but the thing you never forget is the FEELING that you experienced when they left.

  • Accept yourself as you were designed

I love this! It’s kind of a simple one, but damn is there depth there.

  • How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you

This is similar to that popular saying about how you treat yourself being how others will treat you, but when you change that word to LOVE then you make the saying mean that much more.

  • The way they leave tells you everything

I feel like you can use this to tell yourself that how someone leaves you tells you everything about them, and how you can’t let them back in your life.

  • What terrifies me most is how we foam at the mouth with envy when others succeed, but sigh in relief when they are failing. Our struggle to celebrate each other is what’s proven most difficult in being human

This! Someone said it! People always want to achieve stuff, and when others do we get jealous, and then we feel satisfaction when they fail? What kind of people are we if this is how we think?

  • I have what I have and I am happy. I’ve lost what I’ve lost and I am still happy

This is so simple, but is so precious. Being happy with what you have, even though you have lost a lot, you are still satisfied with what you have.

  • She was a rose in the hands of those who had no intension of keeping her

This makes me so sad, but I love it still. It’s not that long, yet it says a lot.

  • Every time you tell your daughter you yell at her out of love, you teach her to confuse anger with kindness, which seems like a good idea till she grows up to trust men who hurt her cause they look so much like you

This is such a relevant quote. I myself, have sweet loving parents who almost never yell at me, but I have friends who have over protective fathers who get angry with them a lot, because they are trying to protect them, but that ends up sending mixed messages.

  • I want to apologise to all the women I have called pretty before I’ve called them intelligent or brave. I am sorry I made it sound as though something as simple as what you’re born with is the most you have to be proud of when your spirit has crushed mountains. From now on I will say things like you are resilient or you are extraordinary not because I don’t think you’re pretty but because you are so much more than that

I now, will also not call another girl pretty before I call her intelligent, because no one should weigh their worth in something so temporary.

  • Sometimes the apology never comes when it is wanted, and when it comes it is neither wanted nor needed

I love this because I feel like this is true for so many people. Sometimes the apology comes to late, what they’ve done is done, whats been hurt has hurt, and has healed, and you have moved on.

  • You have to stop searching for why, at some point, you have to leave it alone

I should really listen to this because I always wonder why about things that have happened years ago, and its too late to ask, people probably wouldn’t even remember, yet the questions still lingers somewhere in my mind.

  • For you to see beauty here does not mean there is beauty in me, it means there is beauty rooted so deep within you you can’t help but see it everywhere

This is so beautiful, and I wish that one day there is so much beauty and happiness in me, that I see beauty everywhere and that I find happiness in everything.

  • Some people are so bitter, to them you must be kindest

I like this a lot, because if someone is bitter, than they have clearly not had the best experience either that day or in their life in full, and so, even though you may not want to, you should be kind to them, because they probably need it the most.

  • I don’t know what living a balanced life feels like. When I’m sad I don’t cry I pour, when I am happy I don’t smile I glow, when I am angry I don’t yell I burn. The good think about feeling in extremes is when I love I give them wings, but perhaps that isn’t such a good thing ’cause they always tend to leave and you should see me when my heart is broken. I don’t grieve, I shatter.

I feel like this is ME. You guys all saw how shattered I was after all that drama, and how happy I can be sometimes. I feel like I have the most unpredictable emotions.

  • If the hurt comes so will the happiness

I wanted to end with this one because it’s basically saying that things will always get better.

Rupi Kaur has the most amazing way of writing and I really hope that one day she writes another book of poems so I can love that one too. Milk and honey is definitely one of my favourites things to ever read, and I feel like you can use it almost as a bible, where you read through it whenever you are struggling and need something to hold onto.

10 reasons to watch angus, thongs and perfect snogging

Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging… only one of the best teen movies ever made! I love this movie so much! And so, I have decided to make a list of 10 reasons why YOU should love it too!

If you don’t already know what it’s about… watch the trailer!

  • It’s hilarious

atps

This movie is absolutely hilarious, with all the jokes at just the right time. You will likely find yourself laughing out loud (well, I know I did).

  • Robbie is adorable

atps

If you say you think that Robbie is not adorable you are lying! He is like, perfect! How can you not think he is cute! The only bad thing about him is that he’s set the standard VERY high for other guys!

  • Angus!

atps

I have one thing to say about why I put Angus on here. …because who doesn’t love cats! (And if you don’t like cats then unfollow right now, because we can not be friends! ..I’m joking! …maybe.)

  • It’s a coming of age story

atps

When Georgia realised how big of a mistake she made and how bad she felt for being so selfish you get to see her mature. I like how she takes responsibility for her actions, and tries to fix things.

  • The olive costume

atps

You could literally watch this movie JUST for this scene. Absolutely hilarious. So funny in fact, that it had to be its own point! And don’t worry, if you are just interested in watching this scene, its right at the beginning, but if you start watching this movie, you probably won’t be able to stop!

  • Libby

atps

Okay. Who can’t agree with the “annoying little sister” thing. Even if you don’t have one, you can still probably find it relatable! (I have the most annoying little sister ever.)

  • The Stiff Dylans

atps

I told you Robbie was perfect! He’s even in a band! And they perform in the movie! For Georgia! Might I say more! OH! And Robbie wrote a song, in which the band play! For Georgia! Is that not the cutest thing!

  • Robbie again!

atps

I’m sorry, but its Robbie! Of course I’m going to bring him up again! If you are not yet fully convinced… just remember, Robbie is adorable! …and you should watch the movie to see Robbie!

  • This scene

atps

Uh. Who doesn’t love this scene! He kissed her! *cue fireworks* And if that isn’t one of the most passionate PG kisses you have ever witnessed seeing, then I don’t know what is! Ugh. Robbie and Georgia are setting my relationship goals way to high! Again, just joking! (I live the single life.)

  • The ending!

atps

The ending is… well, the ending! You have to see for yourself, but its pretty damn good, and always leaves you with this satisfied warm in your heart.

 

I hope you enjoyed reading about all the reasons to watch this fantastic movie! This post was kind of short, but I have half-yearlys this week AND I have a whole essay to write, two sheets of maths homework, six practise tests to completely and four exams to study for tonight! …let’s just say my teachers didn’t set that all… I’ve just procrastinated until the last minute…

Okay, well, thanks for reading!

Q & A #1

I said #1 because I plan on doing many more in the future. And let me just say that I am super super super excited to be doing my first Q&A. Okay, I should probably stop stalling now, and take a look at the questions…

(AllTheJazz) Samsung of Apple phones?

I know that 90% of teens or whatever are going to say Apple, but… Samsung is always one step ahead. There are so many things I can do with my Samsung S7 that  couldn’t do with my iPhone 5. And, I know they are very different additions, and there are newer phones out, but can you schedule texts to send at a certain time? Do you get to decide how your phone is set out to the smallest detail? Can you put little reminders on your home screen so that you can’t possibly forget? These are just a few of the feature on samsung that I could think of off the top of my head, but I know there are more. Now, I rest my case that Samsung, in my opinion, is better than Apple.

What is your favourite saying/quote?

My favourite quote changes really often, like, seriously all the time. But I still love so many. I’m actually thinking of making like a quote book to keep all my favourite quotes that I find. But anyway, I rewatched “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” trailer the other day and all the beautiful and amazing quotes came back to me, but two in particular are my favourite, “We accept the love we thing we deserve.” and “Please believe that things are good with me, and even when they’re not, they will be soon enough.” These two quotes are so powerful. I just remembered another quote from one of my favourite books also, “This moment here. This is all you get. Before you are part of the sky.” And I love this book because its all about how this girl learnt that she needs to stop worrying about what everyone at school and around her thinks of her, and how that is her biggest regret after something tragic happens. (The book is Anatomy of a Misfit if any of you were wondering.)

Favourite lesson in school?

My favourite class is so so hard to choose, because contrary to popular belief, I actually love school, and I love a lot of my classes. So, I’m going to have to go with English, because not only is it the area in which I want to pursue some sort of career, but for the last two years I have had the most amazing teachers. Last year my teacher was honestly the sweetest and nicest person ever, and if you don’t remember me writing this in a post before, he baked us a cake on the last day! And my current teacher is so good at her job, like fantastic, and I just found out that she used to live next-door to my grandmother’s brother! Like, what! Aside from all that though, I have always loved English as I subject. (Much more than the average person.)

Dogs or cats?

This is kinda hard to answer, but also kinda not. As an owner of both the dog species and the cat, I can easily say that there are good things about both. However, I must choose cats, because I have the loveliest cat there ever was who loves to sleep on my bed and cuddle all the time, and she’s the loudest purrer, and oh she is just adorable. Dogs, on the other hand, are so much fun, but can get very smelly, and I can’t really handle that. Also, when I was like a toddler or something, I was traumatise in the park when I giant dog ran up and pushed me over, which led me to be terrified of my own dogs when we first got them.

(IndieSongLyrics) What is your favourite thing about blogging?

My favourite thing about blogging is having a little corner of the internet to say whatever you choose. …and no one knows you. I have talked about books, movies, tv shows, my life, music, my thoughts, and rants. I have even used this blog to seek advice from other people halfway across the world. I guess that sound like my favourite part of blogging is having a blog but what I really mean is having the freedom of anonymity.

What is your favourite show? 

My favourite show… ever? God, this is going to be so hard. I feel like the obvious answer should be 13 Reasons Why. I mean, everyone would understand why, it’s the most fantastic teen show of the year, and maybe even our lives. This is too hard!!!! Okay, I feel like this is cheating, but I’m going to list my top 5! 13 Reasons Why, Freaks and Geeks, The 100, Misfits, and Bad Education! They are the best shows ever, and I highly recommend them all! Oh! And Dear White People! Sorry, that was six!

What is your favourite season?

My favourite season is spring! I love spring so much! Because its when the weather starts to warm up, but is still I bit cold, and summer is on it’s way! And you wake up and its a bit on the chilly outside, so you put the heater on and warm up, but then the middle of the day comes and its warm enough to go swimming! It’s just the nicest season!

(TheHardshipsofTeenLife) What made you want to start blogging?

This is actually kind of a funny story that I have never really told. I was bored one day, looking through the internet, when I wondered if there were any good teen blogs to read. I then decided to google teen blogs and stumbled across Hideaway Girl. I loved her blog a lot, and decided to start my own. When I first made a blog it was on a wix site and was impossible to find. If you googled my blog it didn’t even come up. Then, I was reading one of Hideaway Girl’s posts when I saw at the bottom there was a thing that said “blog at worpress” and I clicked it and never looked back.

***

I hope you have enjoyed reading this Q&A all about me, and that its wasn’t too boring or self centred. (Hahahah. Of course its going to seem self centred. Its all about me!)

girl in pieces by kathleen glasgow – book review

Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people lose in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.

Every new scar hardens Charlie’s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.

This book! Every single person needs be read this book! Like… now!

I’m going to make a quick confession. You know that book, All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven? Yeah. I used to love that book. Until… I was watching a BookTuber, and she started taking about how she didn’t like it because of how it shapes mental illness. Throughout the story, neither of the kids, despite their troubles, tell an adult. And one ends up dying for it! Ugh. Sorry for the spoiler. But anyway, even though it dealt with metal illness, it didn’t send out a good message, and I had to agree with that BookTuber, and so now I don’t really like that book.

The point of that huge paragraph was that this book is different! Yes, it deals with mental illness, and yes, it is brutal. But in the end, the way the characters deal with it? The author sends out an amazing message.

Not only does she say that things can get better, and you will continuously have to pick up the pieces of mistakes, but that the important thing is moving forward. Does Charlie relapse? Yes. But she learns from her mistakes.

And even in the beginning, Charlie gets the help she needs.

This book really teaches you what its like to live with a mental illness, and helps you to understand how someone can feel compelled to cut themselves to get relief… from life.

And the ending is also fantastic! It really shows that no matter what, things can get better. And that also, some people in your life will be destructive, and eventually you have to let them go.

I read this book and it changed my entire perspective on mental illness. It helped me to feel what its like to be Charlie. And I needed that. Every one needs that. Because at some point in your life you will meet a Charlie. Hell! You could be a Charlie!

The point of this post was to talk about how everyone should read this book because you will get something out of it, something that you will keep with you for the rest of your life. And that right there… is a book worth reading.

riverdale – season 1

Archie Andrews starts the school year with the world weighing on his shoulders. He’s decided he wants to pursue a future in the music business, but he recently ended clandestine relationship with the music teacher has left him without a mentor, and his friendship with Jughead Jones is in a bad place. Things look like they might be turning around when Veronica Lodge, a new girl, arrives. Despite the instant chemistry, Veronica is hesitant to risk a friendship with Betty – who has a crush on Archie – to pursue anything. Amidst all the small-town banality lurks a mystery: the recent death of Jason Blossom, the twin brother of beautiful and popular troublemaker, Cheryl.

This is going to be 100% spoilers, so I advise that if you have not watched or finished the show, to not proceed to read.

Okay. Now, let’s talk about Riverdale!

There are 13 episodes to this show and my god did they go by fast. I mean, I don’t think anyone’s thinking about Mrs Grundy anymore.

Anyway, so I kind of just want to chat about what happened last.

Mr. Blossom is a drug dealer, he used his maple syrup business to cover for it, Jason found out, and Mr. Blossom killed him, and now Mr. Blossom has committed suicide! This whole time I was thinking the murder was about the pregnancy! And uh… the Blossoms weren’t even fazed by the fact that their grandchild was born through (unknowing) inbreds? Jughead is moving in with a new family, and transferring schools! And Jughead took the jacket! And Veronica and Archie! AND Jughead and Betty! And the Serpents! (Can I just say, I actually love the serpents because of their loyalty!) And Cheryl trying to kill herself! And Archie saving her! And Betty has a secret brother! Cheryl burned down her house! Oh! And Archie’s dad! Like, uh, woah, a lot has happened these past two episodes.

Also. For next season. Who shot Fred (Archie’s dad)? Why? Was it Hiram? The Serpents? How will Jughead and Betty’s relationship progress with these Jughead’s drastic living changes? Will we get to meet the newly discovered Cooper son?

Also, my favourite episode has to be that fuckboy one from earlier in the season when Betty and Veronica get back at those football jocks for that book. What was your favourite episode?

I was wondering if, from now on, when watching a show, I should start a post at the beginning and then keep adding as the show progresses, because otherwise I kind of forget half the stuff that even goes on, as it’s long passed? What do you guys think? I’m watching “Girl Boss” at the moment? Should I start writing about that!?

…I’m kind of liking the idea of episode by episode updates, then uploading it all in one post!

Anyway, do you guys have any theories for what might happen next season? Will Fred live or die?

Alula, the beach, dogs, and hot chocolates

So, this happened a while ago, but I just remembered, and I planned on writing a post about, then got side tracked and forgot. But I’m writing now!

Basically, my sister and I decided to take the dogs for a walk, (or more exactly, I begged her to come with me so I wasn’t a loner). My sister, lets name her… Alula. Yes, Alula!

Alula and I took the dogs to the beach. I walked Lily, (our much lazier, older, Labrador), and Alula walked Rusty, (our very athletic, energetic Irish Terrier). Our house is about a twenty minute walk from the beach, so it wasn’t that far.

When we got to the beach Alula and I had just walked past a cute guy pushing his bike up the hill, when Alula noticed that the baths had been drained. We both commented on how that was kind of strange, and I swear to god we must have sounded so stupid or something, because the guy that just passed us had stopped to look at us. I noticed this, because I glances over my shoulder to see him turning his head away and continuing up the hill.

Anyway, my sister and I decided to get some hot chocolates, and I payed for her because she “forgot” her money, and said she’d pay me back…. and now that I think about it, she never did pay me back!

The hot chocolates were surprisingly really nice, and we sat on the sand with the dogs. We talked, laughed, and snapchatted. I’d upload the photos, but I don’t have her permission, and she doesn’t know about this blog.

When we headed back we went through “The Aquarium”, which is a tunnel under the main road that is painted with sea creatures all along the walls. Alula and I also raced the dogs, and were half a block from the beach, when I realised she still had Rusty. (We were meant to swap over on the way back.)

We swapped, much to Alula’s unhappiness, and continued on our way. We were four blocks from home when I told Alula that we should go a different way because it was faster. She disagreed and wanted to go the same way.

This ended in us splitting up and racing each other home. I beat her to the lights, but immediately felt bad because she was my little sister, and I didn’t want her to feel hurt, so I then went around the block of our house before heading home. Alula beat me, and was very satisfied with herself, which made me happy too.

Anyway, this day was just super fun, and I wanted to recount it so that I had it written down somewhere and I could find it one day in the future.

Q & A?

I want to celebrate my 100 followers by letting my followers get to know me!

Thank you so much for 100 followers, (well, 113 now!) I’m excited to be able to do a Q&A. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers doing them and I thought, considering I’d just hit a new milestone with my blog, I should join in!

So leave your questions in the comments below, and I’ll have a Q&A up this time next week!

(Also. I was think of starting an advice type thing, if anyone is struggling with any issues in their life. I’m may not be the most experienced person, but if you want to know how to deal with something or have any questions about stuff, feel free to email me in my “contact me” section, and I can post my response on here incase anyone else shares the same questions. And don’t worry, I’ll keep you anonymous 😉 )

talk later,

a collection of friendship quotes

This is just a collection of quotes that I found on the internet, and found that they meant something to me and that I wanted to keep them. So I’m keeping them here.

  • Do you ever just see your friends getting really close with other people and you can just feel yourself slowly becoming less important to them and you get this really deep ache in your heart and everything just hurts.
  • I’m trying to run but my legs are broken
  • They said friends come and go but true friends last forever. The problem is that I don’t know who my true friends are anymore…
  • You meet someone. You two get close. It’s all great for a while. Then someone stops trying. Talk less. Awkward conversations. The drifting. No communication whatsoever. Memories start to fade. Then that person you know becomes that person you KNEW. That’s how it usually goes right? Sad isn’t it.
  • I hate that moment when my anger turns into tears
  • Life is not about who is real to your face, its about who is real behind your back
  • Do you ever feel like you’re not friends with some of your friends?
  • It’s okay to miss people and still not want them back in your life
  • You came into my life. You broke me. You left.
  • They say that friends change but memories don’t. They why, when I look back, I see all the flaws and the hints and clues that should have told me then and there to walk away. The memories are different. I see them through a different light. A fractured light. 
  • Always help someone. You might be the only one that does.
  • I’ve always been afraid of losing people. Sometimes I wonder if there is anyone out there afraid to lose me.
  • I trusted you but now your words mean nothing to me because your actions spoke the truth.
  • Things change and friends leave and life doesn’t stop for anyone

The one in bold is my own. I guess I’ve just been feeling really down and stuff, and a lot of these quotes are about friendship so I guess you can see whats been on my mind.
