Today may be kind of a boring post (sorry). I have so many awards and questions and tags to catch up on! Firstly, however, I would just like to say I am absolutely floored by how much feedback I have been receiving lately. I can't even begin to tell you how it feels to be heard like this. My blog has become my...outlet. It's a way for me to say what I want and express how I feel. It's a way for me to document my life in pictures and words and I treat much of it like a diary. So these lovely, beautiful, amazing comments you have been giving me? Well, let's just say, it's one thing to blog incessantly about nothing at all that only I care about, but when I suddenly have people that care about what I'm writing about too...it's amazing! It's the best of both worlds and I can't thank you enough. I am one follower away from 50 and I think I'm going to have to do a giveaway! WHOA!
Which brings up the point of suddenly being freaked out about what to write about these days. Especially days like today when I don't have a photoshoot to post, exciting adventures to report on, and general exciting "life" things. An audience? Yay!! But I also fear boring all of you now ;).
So today I will tell you this: last weekend, I spent the most blissful Saturday in the world with that kid of mine that I kind of have a huge crush on snuggling, movie watching, graduation party attending, picture taking, and ect, going to a Carrie Underwood concert, and ghost hunting in a scary old hotel! This week I won a(nother) scholarship somehow, GOT MY BRACES OFF (!pictures to come!), got my ipod taken away, and got a C on a calculus test. Which in my eyes, is acing it!
This time next week....I will be done with school. I will be done with high school forever. One. Week. And graduation next Friday. 40+ family members are coming. I have never been more excited for anything.
Enough mindless blabber! Ebony of the wonderful blog Ebony&Ivory tagged me with these fascinating questions that I'm going to answer! Basically, read my questions/answers, then go to the bottom where I wrote 8 questions for the people I tagged to answer! If you're tagged, then you answer and tag 8 people, make new questions ect. It's fun! If you have never visited Ebony's blog...do it. She is AMAZING and seriously one of those bloggers you just wish you were best friends with in real life!
1. If your life was a movie, what song would play the opening credits?
Oh my god....hardest question EVER. My immediate response is to say any Taylor Swift song...but at the moment my "happy" song is Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetics. So that wins. But here are runner ups!
A) In Your Sleep-Andrew Belle
B) Snow Is Gone-Josh Ritter
C) Butterfly Nets- Bishop Allen
D) Fearless-Taylor Swift
2. Tell me about your first kiss?
Haha! Just reading this question makes me giggle and blush. WELLLL....if we are being technical, it would be when I was 10 and my best friend that I was convinced I was madly in love with moved that I had grown up through daycare with. We were watching Cinderella and we were dancing ballroom style during the end scene, and when the Prince kissed Cinderella, the boy kissed me. Hehe! It was kind of cute but it also didn't really mean anything. 10 years old. You know.
But the first "real one"? This year! After Prom. Goodnight kissssss. It was sweet and perfect in itself. It was the first time it was with a guy that I really, really cared for and I was 17 before it happened. Ha. Ha. Ha. :)
3. One thing you want to accomplish before your next birthday?
My birthday is next month!! July 24th :). It IS my 18th birthday...so I feel obligated to wrap up my childhood in some escatic crazy way...but honestly, I feel like I've sort of done everything I hoped before 18. Soo....I guess I hope I graduate with my silver honors, have an amazing start of summer with my boy, and read. A lot.4. What is your dream occupation?
Errm...there are SO many things I love. My number one passion is probably writing. And any career in that would bring me to tears of happiness. But the likelihood of it happening is slim since there are 50,000,000 writers in the world trying to make it, so realistically, I would love to become a doctor specializing in pediatrics and maybe doing some Doctors Without Borders work. We'll see.5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Hands down, absolutely, positively, without a doubt, BALI, INDONESIA. I went in 9th grade and have never felt anything like I did when I was there. It's paradise and it's a home.
6. What is your favourite thing about yourself?
I think what I love most about me is that I am a very happy/content person. I've grown into this confidence over the years and it really doesn't take a lot to make me happy. I'm able to see the silver lining in almost any situation because of things I've gone through, and I feel like this has helped me so much because I can learn from virtually everything that happens from me. I'm positive.
7. How did you meet your best friend?
7. How did you meet your best friend?
My "best" friend first is my Grandma, who I met at birth :P. My "best" friend second is my sister, who I met at her birth :P. My "best" friend third is my neighbor Jenni! We knew of the other's existence growing up and watching the other play in the others backyards, but we were both super shy so we never talked. Last year, we were on the same soccer team and instantaneously we became attached at the hip. We are always at one another's house and we both have younger sister's the same age. We are all best friends and we all hang out constantly. I absolutely love it. I feel like I have a second family!
