Secret Weakness

Hello, chilluns!
I return to posting in peace.
Okay, so everybody has a weakness, like something in their personality. But there are also other weakness, and when it comes to clothes or something, a lot of people have them.
It could be rubber ducks, shoes, Greek yogurt, accessories related to a T.V show, or coffee mugs.

But that's not the point. I do have a weakness.
And it is white, lacy dresses.

For most people who sort of know me, they can't really believe it. I wear really whatever I feel like, usually crazy pants. But I care about my appearance, and I put thought into my outfits (even if it's just a sweatshirt with a tank top underneath and some jeans). But my outfits usually include either darker, more mature colors (maroons, dark blues, greys) or super bright, crazy colors (a little bit under the neon spectrum).
But I almost never wear pastels. Ever.
I like flower prints, but they can't be dainty, little daisies. The have to be LOUD, PROUD, larger flowers with a bit of personality.  Flower crowns have to be they same way, but I don't have any of those either.
Basically, what I wear needs to be bold, make a statement, or has to be super comfy.
But white, lacy, dresses don't really fit in.

I guess it sort of makes a statement, but it's not what people expect me to wear.
I currently own 4 of these dresses, and I bought another one yesterday (however it has a blue lining underneath).
So what is your secret weakness, I would wonder?
I also have one for blazers, but I can some how keep it in check.
Anyways, it would be quote time!

I am so excited for The Catching Fire movie! SPOILER: I hope that this new director can do the Mockingjay dress right. 
'Cause that what I needs to see.

My hair is poofy.

With my new haircut, it fluffs up a lot, and then I have to put a lot of products in it so it calms down. Also, it's really hard to get the spiky look I like the best.

Well good morning, world!
How's it going so far?
So far, I've made man down toast, worked on a design for a t-shirt, messed with my hair for about half an hour, tuned my ukulele, and am dreaming about lunch at one of my favorite cafes in the next town over.
Mmmmmmm, food. Such a beautiful thing.

I'm wearing my Bazinga t-shirt (from the Big Bang Theory) it's sad outside. The sky is crying just a little bit now and again and it looks pretty grumpy.
I'm hungry. So all I keep thinking of is food.
Crepes, I want you so bad....
Ugh, now I'm on Crepes of Wrath and I want foooooooooooooooooooooooood.
I may have a problem.
My hair smells sort of like the ocean. I haven't been to the ocean. Or a waterpark.
Now I want to ride a rollercoaster.
Well, again, I don't really have an idea for this post either, but I forgot that I need to write this guy a letter on bears, so I'm a gonna do that.
Sorry, guys, I'm abandoning you.
I don't even feel like writing a quote so SUCK IT!
Ehh, now I feel guilty so I'm going to put in a quote.
"Kind people have a way of working their way inside me and rooting there."
-Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
Yep, that's all folks.

You know the moment when you just finished cleaning the bathroom, and you grab a vanilla bean soda and you're settled in your favorite chair, and you flip to the channel that you previously looked up (4 days ago) and said it was showing the Pirate of the Caribbean movie at three? And you're all ready for pirates and Jack Sparrow and jars of dirt and everything and you find out  that your T.V doesn't support that channel?

Yeah, I thought so.
Well good morning (and I guess evening) children! Today is a new day!

Log Cabin Day, to be exact.
So go celebrate your dilapidated, smallish, wooden house with the stove that caught on fire that one time and the bathroom that is less than dependable!

I'm pretty excited about life if you couldn't tell. Must be the pop.
Well, as you know, I write about pretty much anything I feel like writing about, but sometimes I run out of ideas. Actually, this happens a lot. Those are mostly the days I don't post anything.
I would look towards the comments, but obviously that doesn't really work out, so I go to the next best thing...
Yeah, so I really didn't have an idea for this post either. Oh well.
That's where gifs come in!
Well, I really should get a quote in.
"Yes, frosting. The final defense of dying."
-Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
Never. Forget. Frosting.
Even if it makes you sick when you eat it.

Okay, so I had an audition sort of far away from my house, and there was a Wegmans nearby, and then I began my adventure.

Yeah, I'm going to skip over the part where I didn't write a post for a couple of days, and start talking about how ammmmaaaazing Wegmans is!
And derr de derr, it's going to be in list form.
The building is ginormous and packed with food, and the aisles stretch on and on. I could get lost in there if I really tried.
With so many choices! There was Dim Sun and Sushi, Indian, Chinese, all sorts of salads, and home style cooking like mac & cheese. I opened a carton, shoved a bunch of food inside, grabbed a guava soda and some chopsticks, and ran to the cashier.

I found Dry Soda (Blood Orange and Vanilla Bean), coconut meat, chia drinks, Nutella infused bakery, and this awesome Egyptian Licorice tea that coats your throat and makes you feel magical.
Thousands of candy types all over the place, all ready for the taking. But sadly I couldn't take any. My gummy worm friends, chocolates, caramel, and dried kiwi were left for another day.


The movie sucks, by the way.
Yep. I had a good day. So that's all I wanted to talk about.
Quote time, chilluns!

I DID IT! (+Zombies)

My head is so much lighter, and it looks amazing and it is just a rainbow all around.

I also went to see World War Z, which I thought was fantastic!

I thought it was a super creative way to shoot it, and even though it was waaaaay different from the book, I liked it a lot. Except every time a zombie would jump out of no where (AND I FREAKING KNEW IT WAS COMING ANYWAY) I would jam back into my seat and it would rock back. But that's okay.
I liked it so much I bought as much as I could of the soundtrack (which sadly wasn't much).
And I almost flipped out when I thought my favorite character died in a plane crash, even though she already had her arm amputated (WITH A MACHETE) after she got bit by a zombie.

So I spoiled part of the movie for you......but you should go see it anyways.
Well, I stayed up really late last night, and I need to practice for an audition, so I'll write some more later.

Beep Beep


Well, I wish I was there, but a shout out will have to do.
It's been a good week so far, but I haven't posted because I was making a gift for my friend that took up WAAAAY too much of my time (it was worth it though) and I've been fencing and other stuff.

I've had a lot of ice cream, and some particularly amazing fro-yo in Taro flavor with these awesome bubbly thingies on top that I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME OF BUT THEY ARE ONE OF THE FREAKING BEST THINGS EVER!
I have the urge to buy some overall shorts and ride my bike and scream compliments at people, but that probably isn't the best idea. Well, the screaming part.

As I type I'm listening to The xx and getting pretty shaky which I can't really explain, but oh well.

Yep, I followed through, and I'm pretty excited. I bought these cute head bands for my short do', and I'm ready to go swimming and not have to worry about suffocating when my hair covers my face as I come up to breathe. One time I tried to do the wet hair flip thing, but when I went to flip, the weight of my hair smacked me in the face with an audible slap, and I fell backwards into the pool because it was so heavy.

So I won't have to worry about that any more.
Well, I gotta go pack for something, so I'm going to sign off with a quote and some Ferris Bueller gifs. Actually, I really have the urge to watch The Hunger Games, but I don't have it and also I get really hyper after I watch that movie. Foxface is definitely my favorite character, probably because she does what I like to do, hide and not be noticed, and use your skills and others resources to survive and win (SECRET TACTIC DURING MANHUNT THAT I USE EVERY TIME I PLAY). I was pretty sad when she died in the movie actually...
"You don't forget the face of the person who was your last hope."

Goodness, there are so many good quotes from the series. I might just do a bunch until the end of the month.

Ain't that the truth.

Friends for Thought

Hey everyone.
I know that yesterday I posted about some of my thoughts, but this is one I have for today.
Okay, so I was looking through other people's blogs and stuff, and I found one and started reading.
It turned out that the blogger and I had a lot in common, especially with art, music, and books, which was really cool, and I was going to leave a comment about this.

But then I didn't because I felt bad and thought that she would think I was only writing this so she would read my blog.
This started me thinking, however.

What if your friends really loved everything you do/like?
I mean, the reason you become friends with someone usually starts with a similarity between two people, and this gives you something to talk about. But if that person likes everything you do and agrees with everything you say, you really wouldn't want to be with them sometimes (or really at all), because there wouldn't really be a point to your relationship.
You're would almost be interacting with a copy of yourself, which you already sort of do in your mind and thoughts everyday.
So that'd be really weird.
I realized that all of the friends that I have are all different, and I love that about them. Sometimes I don't agree with what they say, and that makes me happy in the long run, because it shows that they have their own voice and they aren't going to go along with what everyone else says, including what I say. They have a unique talent and personality, which makes them fun to be with and allows us to brainstorm and overcome conflicts and challenges.

And I really appreciate it.
So I guess this post is sort of sappy, but I really mean it, that I'm glad all my friends are their own person because it makes my life and the lives around us better.
Ugh, I hope this wasn't too weird. It was just me thinking really late at night.
Hahaha that feels much better.
So quote for today.
"An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind."
That ends this post. Goodnight world.

Hey, y'all.
I missed a couple posts/days because I was taking a mini trip, BUT I'M BACK BABY!


But while I wasn't writing, I had some thoughts/ideas. And if you've been reading long enough, you probably already guessed that they would be presented in list form.
You guessed correctly, grasshopper.
I was thinking about getting one for awhile, and I finally decided to live a little and get one. Your hair grows back, and I'm FREAKING TIRED with dealing with mine and all of its thickness. I also hope that if I write it on this blog then it will help me follow through. And I know it will look awesome. And if it doesn't, I have a couple months for it to grow back before school starts. And as the cool kids say, YOLO*.
2. Ice Cream is the Best Dinner
Especially if it's chocolate custard with rainbow sprinkles. Mmmmmm.

3. Thinking About Mortality is dangerous.
Because once you start, it's hard to stop, and then you begin questioning everything and it gets pretty darn depressing and suddenly you wonder how you got here and you decide to ponder it over cheese and then you're finishing a puzzle at midnight. You know...just as an example. Not that this has ever happened to me...

4. Is it possible to get wind burn?
Because I think I have it and it burns around my eyes like a MOTHERTRUCKER!
I guess it is.
5. My Music Stories
Okay, so when I listen to music, if I'm not doing anything else, I usually make up a story that has me doing something to it. Something usually BA, because I can live super adventurously in my mind. So while I'm staring out the car window listening to "No Church in the Wild", I'm jumping rooftops with my flamethrower, then jumping off the edge of one, tumbling through the air and some how hitting the ground running while fending off these thugs that are chasing me with an inferno of blue and orange flames. While wearing reflective sunglasses. And a smile.

So yeah, that's what's been on my mind. Hope you enjoyed it.
I have 7 minutes until my deadline, so I GOT TO GET THIS DONE!**
Quote Time!

Being a leader is hard, and you can't force people to follow you either. It has to be their choice.
Alright, chipmunks, I gotta fly.

*I will/have never said this acronym in earnest. And I don't plan on it. Ever.
** 10 minutes over deadline. Close enough.
