I have to say, this weekend has been pretty dayum fantastic. Friday I went to my bestfriend Kim's house and hung out and watched Talledega Nights, one of my favorite movies EVER. It's so ridiculous, and funny; it never gets old.
Saturday was the big day. I had to wake up super duper early, to get ready for rehearsals for All State Choir. I was there from 8:30 -12, and it was simply amazing. The songs are so beautiful, and so great for only being the second time we're all singing together. The only sucky thing was that we were tested on the music, which I didn't really go over much, but thankfully I did fine.

After reherasals, I chilled at home for a while until I went out to eat with my grandparents. They went to Italy for two weeks with their friends, and we had a LOT of catching up to do. It seemed like they had a ton of fun, and they brought stuff back for me! I'll put up pictures later I guess. THEN we all went to the mall, so I could get a new phone. I got a Blackberry Curve! It's so pretty and I love it. Right now, I have a black case for it, but I'm earnestly searching for a zebra print one. So overall, Saturday was pretty much amazing.

The Outfit:

teal cardigan: Target

black tunic: Target

black elephant necklace: Forever 21

black bow headband: Forever 21

printed scarf: my mother

mock denim leggings: Target

gold flats: my grandmother

*Taken on the Blackberry. It's a lot better than the Chocolate Ones.

Today, I'm not doing much of anything. Basically staying home, doing my homework, and figuring out how to use my phone, haha.


So Lately.

Oh my goodness, school has been pretty crazy so far. I mean we have classes from 8:30 to 3:05, but the days seem to last forever! Hmm, that's probably because we have so many breaks. We have 2 classes then a break for morning announcements/free time, two more classes then another break for about 25 minutes for lunch, then our last two classes and then we go home. It's pretty ridiculous, but overall school is good. I love seeing my friends EVERY day, not just when we're free. So here's a couple outfits from this week. 


black oversize cardigan: Target
white ribbed tank: Hanes
grey high waist skirt: Target
red flowered headband: Forever 21
chain-link scarf (as a belt): Jacque
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
* not shown: gold gladiators


loose grey v-neck: Target
printed scarf: also from Jacque
hermosa super skinny jeans: Pac Sun
black bow headband: Forever 21
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
* not shown, gold ballet flats

Oh wow, I just realized how much Forever 21 I wear. But hey, it's cheap and I'm always broke so it's all good!


It's Official, I'm A Sophmore.

On Friday I received my class schedule for the 08-09 year! It's so exciting because it's now completely official, I am a SOPHMORE! The only bad thing is that I have no idea what my real class order is because class order changes every letter day and I don't have all of my classes every day.

This year I'll be taking:
Honors Latin III
AP Biology
Women's Vocal Chamber Ensemble
Modern European History
Algebra II
English II
*Driver's Ed, AP Bio Lab, Study Hall*

I think the best thing about this year is that we finally got a new schedule because a lot of classes would run at the same time. Because the class times change daily now it makes class conflicts were much easier to absolve. At first I wanted to take History of American Science and Medicine, but because of my language course, I opted to take Modern European History and it wasn't much of a problem. Well, except for the fact that I don't really want to take the class but whatever gets me into AP US History, hahah.

The next best thing is that I have a study hall almost every other day! Last year I didn't have a study hall because I took an elective- Women's Vocal Chamber- and I also took Women's Choir. Classes begin on Monday, and I really think they're going to be great, my teachers are the bomb, and I have friends in all of my classes. So what classes are YOU taking this year?


First Day of School, First Day of School!

Today was my first official day of school and honestly, it couldn't have been better. I'm so happy to be a sophmore & to see everyone. Oh, and I LOVE pretty much all of our new kids.

Because the seniors and freshman left for their retreats yesterday, the rest of us didn't have regular classes. The sophmores (that's my grade), worked on different community service projects, and workshops and I believe the junior began planning Prom.

So, early in the morning, we broke into our homeroom groups, and got to work. In the morning, my group sorted and organized school supplies that would be put into backpacks for foster children. After we finished with that, we had a workshop with this guy from FCD (Freedom from Chemical Dependancy) and were lectured about drugs & alcohol from people. It was interesting because he actually did drugs and alcohol and had a serious addiction but it was such a long program. Then we had lunch, and did another workshop where we watched different videos about different things like greed, fairness, being polite, and discussed each video.

The day was great, but really tiring because we spent around two hours on each activity. Hopefully, tomorrow will go by a little faster though because my homeroom will be working outside laying down sod for the baseball field, and making the playground look all nice for the pre-schoolers, haha. I'm not really excited for that so much because it's going to be HOT, around 90 degrees and I don't do very well in heat.
The Outfit:

grey v-neck: Target
printed scarf: MamaDukes (Mommy)
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
black bow headband: Forever 21
dark wash skinny jeans: Zan-Di @ Burlington Coat Factory
* oh, and I wore black flip flops

Fun Photos:

Action Shot! Hah, my friend stole my phone and took this after I worked at n00bz orientation. I look a little terrible, but it's okay:
white v-neck: Hanes
yellow tank: Old Navy
printed scaf: Jacque (mah friend)
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
black soffe-like shorts: Under Armour
*Hmm, I'm wearing the bow headband, but my hands are on my head.


Goodbye Sweet Summer.

Today is September 2nd, 2008 and it was my last official day of summer. Tomorrow I will be waking up at 5:30, arrive at school at 7:30 and give tours to new students. Now, seeing as today could be considered such an epic day, I thought well maybe I should find a party to go to or hang out with friends, but I opted not to. Instead I stayed home with my brother all day, and then went to the mall with both my mom and my brother in the evening.

Even though I'm sad that my summer is over, I'm happy to see people at school, and meet new people. Most of you probably don't understand my giddiness, but there are around 86 people in my whole grade so when there are new people, it's a pretty big deal.

Top Four Reasons My Summer was AMAZING:
1. Work! - Over the summer I worked as a camp counselor, and honestly it was the best eight weeks of my year so far. I made friends to last pretty much a lifetime, and I loved my kids to death; plus the fact I was finally able to make my own money.
2. Not having homework! <3
3. Actually getting along with my brother - Ever since I was little, my brother and I would rarely get along and we'd get into huge fights. More often than not, they involved throwing brushes, chairs, and cellular devices but we've toned it down a lot and had some pretty good times.
4. Seeing The Dark Knight - I'm usually not much of a movie-goer but I'm SO glad I saw this. Honestly, it was one of the best movies I've ever seen. Heath Ledger playing The Joker totally stole the show. It was amazing.

I know it's a pretty short list, but those four things honestly made my summer really spectactular and special. It was my best so far. In conclusion, so long sweet summer I'll miss you dearly but it's okay, school will be great! Especially since I'm no longer a freshman. Wish me luck ladies (and gentlemen?).
