Guess what time I woke up this morning? Guess, guess?? And more importantly, guess why I woke up at a time that should be outlawed for any human being to be awake? When I set my alarm last night at 12:03am, my phone so politely informed me that it would be going off four hours and forty two minutes later. The answer: 5:45AM!!!!!!!! And...the why part? All for the sake of getting pictures during the best part of the day: sunrise. The things we do for blogging....
I guess the entire purpose wasn't purely for the sake of pictures as Niklaas' parents are leaving for an epic journey to Korea and breakfast was at hand, but still. I felt a little strange waking up so early and taking pictures, even if it was the second time doing so. Maybe that makes us even more insane.
Anyways! Guess what else?? My vlog is underway! I'm so excited! Haha. We have been taking tons of video all day long and will tomorrow as well. Some adventuring. Some photoshoot behind the scenes action. Some of this. Some of that. It's going to be fun! Remember! Email me at soccermagg(at)gmail(dot)com for any questions I can answer!! I've gotten a few so far but I'm looking for more :) You can comment them too!
Today, whilst adventuring, we were in Hastings and found a copy of Chealsea Chelsea Bang Bang on the shelf. Naturally, I had to read a few pages of it because of all the hype and hooha, so together, Niklaas and I sat in one chair at Hastings and laughed for a good twenty minutes while reading about Chelsea "discovering herself". It was insanely funny and graphic. We also got some funny looks from people who could hear us from shelves away. Ooops. Chelsea, you are one classy lady.
OH! My outfit. Okay. If you dig into your little minds, you might remember my post about graduation a while ago. WELL! I wore this dress to my party and I'm finally debuting it! It fits so differently now. At least, it might be partially because I went commando on the bra (true Idaho style HA!), but also probably because of the whole wisdom teeth ordeal. In fact, in the past three days, even as I've been actually eating, I haven't gone up or down. So, cool?
I love these cowgirl boots to death and it only felt natural that I had to do a photoshoot in them one of these days. Lace is my current passion, and this dress fits it perfectly. I love the texture and swishy-ness of the skirt! Niklaas at first told me I looked like a doofus with my headband like this, but I'm so sick of wearing it normally that I had to change it up. So I did. Ha!!
I leave for college next Friday!! I'm so nervous! I mean, I'm getting more and more excited to move out, but I'm so nervous about making friends and doing well in school. The school part intimidates me like none other. I've been this way since elementry school. In going to Junior High, I was convinced I would suddenly fail all my classes and all my smarts in elementry school were a falsehood when joined with all the other seventh graders from the five elementry schools in town. And in High School, I was convinced that Junior High had ill prepared me for High School because it was so much easier than I had expected and I would again, fail. But, alas, this didn't happen, obviously. I'm sure I'll do fine and I'm just being a baby. Ha!
Have you ever had a dream about someone you've a) never talked to b) seen only once or twice c) haven't thought about in years or d) have never shown an interest to even becoming an acquaintence with? I had a dream last night about a kid I hadn't talked to since we were five, a stranger I can vividly recall passing in the San Diego Zoo because he freaking got in the way of my picture with the gorilla, and a guy three years younger than me I went to school with and had never actually talked to...ever. I think it's just so strange when this happens because your subconscious is remembering things you aren't. Weird.
Okay. Enough of my ramble shamble. Guess what! I know my blog is in ruins, and I apologize, but the amazing Ebony from Ebony and Ivory is going to help me revamp this entire blog!! I'm so excited! She is the sweetest blogger around (you all make my heart skip a beat, though) and I'm so happy to have becoming blogging buddies in this adventure. Bah! Just wait till her hands get on it, this blog will be snazzy and she will deserve all the credit!
Niklaas is napping (vlog? you bet! I'm capturing everythinggg!). I'm writing on the floor. I can't write when he (or anyone) is watching me. It's just weird.
Okay! I'll see you all in two days! :)
Thank you always for your comment. The quality has always blown me away and left me completely floored, but the quantity is really freaking me out right now. Like, really? Really?? You guys are AWESOME. I'm so happy to have you all as a part of my life adventure and figuring it out. You make me smile!
P.S. I picked a blog winner:) I'm waiting for them to email me back so I can announce it!
