I haven't let myself get excited for summer because I just wanted to get through school. But now that this is the last week, and my grades are good, I can finally start pumping myself up!

I've been seeing these "Summer to-do lists" going around lately. At school, online, everywhere. So (even though fads aren't my thing, but I really like lists) I'm actually jumping on the bandwagon on this one. So here is my summer to do list!

1. Go to Disneyland and Six Flags with some of my best friends.

2. Collect sea shells from the beach in California.

3. Get my permit :)

4. Go on the Catapult at Lagoon with Robert! Dun dun dun!

5. Blog. Lots and lots.

6. Get freckles on my shoulders (closest thing to tanning in my case).

7. Get a goldfish and keep it alive longer than three days.

8. Sleep in a tree. Since Reagan told me about her sleeping tree, I've been dying to try it.

9. Actually accomplish an All Nighter. I've tried many times to no avail.

10. Stargaze. In the back of Landry's truck, on my tramp, the roof, the deck. It's happening.

11. Chalk the Boulevard.

12. Watch every single Avatar episode. All in a row.

13. Go on a Bigfoot Excursion. 

14. Play TONS of tennis.

15. Campfire parties and s'mores.

16. I'm going to enjoy Girls Camp IF IT KILLS ME. I've hated it every year (except my third year when we went tubing and I had an awesome tent family).

17. Get may blisters on Trek!

18. Read. Read. Read.

19. Install a hammock.

20. Bake.

21. Ice Cream for dinner.

22. Red Butte Gardens aka my favorite place in the world (if I take a Claratin before I go).

23. Zoo! I love the zoo!

24. Many sleepovers with Kai!

25. Make this the most unforgettable summer ever!

I'll never come back!

I'm very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very done with Jr High. VERY.

I'm sick of the classes, the homework, the teachers, the kids, the lunches, the stench of cheap perfume and cologne, about how looks are everything, rumors, tests...EVERYTHING IS A NIGHTMARE.

I'm honestly so burnt out. I've been crying randomly. I've been screaming at my homework. And my new invisiline retainer is killing my mouth. I'm. So. Done.

Now that all the bad has been released from my system... on to the good things!

1. I got my braces off yesterday:)

I took about 40 webcam pictures. but ya know. it's my computer, i do what I want with it.

2. we "advanced" last night.

It was still kinda pointless. I still have three more tests left, and five more school days left. It was really lame. But I still had a lot of fun after with Kai and Annie:)

we advanced:)

3. My CRTs, my giant map test and my Agatha Christie test are OVER. OVER! Yipee! Now I have a make up english test, and a geography test. But It's almost over. It's almost over. I can do this....

4. I have High School to look forward to. I know a lot of people that despise high school. But I also know a lot that love it with all their heart and soul. I've decided that I'm going to love it. Even if it kills me.


1 more essay.

2 more tests.

5 more real school days.

7 actual school days.

10 days until Jazz Band Trip.

and just to make your life as joyful as mine...

I run to you.

Today, I ran.

I ran because I fell asleep during math CRTs.

And I fell asleep sitting up at home.

And I drank a whole bottle of Mountain Dew all by myself.

So I wanted to be tired and burn those Dew calories.

So I ran. And it was painful. And it was hard. But now I'm tired and I feel awesome.

So maybe running isn't that bad. 

this was basically me. except not on a beach. and I'm not a guy. And I was bright red. but ya know.

So. This week is going to be a long one. I have a list of homework a mile long. CRTs, end of year map tests, lip synchs. It's absolute craziness. But I know that this week will all be worth the awful-ness because of next week.

Next week is when I leave for the Jazz Band trip. 

To tell you the truth, I'm kind of nervous. I'm rooming with a bunch of girls that I only kind of know. I'm afraid they won't be used to my freakiness and I will frighten them. I've done that to a couple people before. But I'm so excited. My mom is coming too, which makes me even happier. Most teenagers would roll their eyes at their parental coming on a trip with all their friends, but not me! I'm pumped!

I'm excited for Disney, for rollercoaster, for the beach, for EVERYTHING.

But I really really wanna go to the beach:)

12 more days!!!

saltwater makes me happy.

so excited=D

Joyful Noise.

I've been in a singsong mood recently.

I've been singing day and night, happy or sad, rainy or sunny. A song is just always coming out of my mouth, or out of my earbuds. This may or may not have to do with the fact that choir is almost over.

We had our concert on Thursday, and it was kind of emotional for me. I have a love-hate relationship with choir. I always have, since eighth grade. Some days I walk in ready to sing and be happy, and some days I'm so sick of singing the same songs over and over and over again that I just sit on the floor until Mama Young tells me to get my butt in my chair. I love having a class with Kate, Jake and Melany, but I just have mixed feelings about it.

So on this particular day I was feeling sentimental. I've been with Mama Young for my whole Jr. High experience. She was the one thing that was always the same, every single year. I'm not going to miss the lame songs we have to sing, but I will miss Mrs. Young.

these were from before our concert. 

and on to the next random rant!

So, I am very particular to my music. I'm kind of a music brat, to say it bluntly. When people plug in their ipod and start blasting, I literally sometimes have to restrain myself from covering my ears and huddling in the fetal position in the corner. I'm not going to judge you on your taste in music, but I will not listen to it. You can like whatever music you want to like, and i don't care. just don't jam your headphones in my ear and make me listen. you will get slapped.

um... so what was I talking about? Oh yeah, music. 

So I found this thing in pinterest. It was a twenty day song challenge. But I'm not doing it in 30 days, I'm doing all thirty of them right now! (hey, you were the one that chose to read this. self inflicted).

#1- your favorite song. my favorite song changes as fast as hummingbird's wings flap. at this very second it is White Blank Page by Mumford and Sons. But it'll probably change again by the time I finish this post.

#2- your least favorite song. I'm not judging you if you like this song, but anything by Iron and Wine. Pandora thinks I should love them because they are on every single one of my stations. But honestly, i can't stand 'em.

#3- a song that makes you happy. any song from Lilo and Stitch. That has the best disney soundtrack in my opinion.

#4- a song that makes you sad. God be with you until we meet again. It's a hymn. I don't really want to say anything more.

#5- a song that reminds you of someone. there are many. right now I'm listening to Five Years Time and it's reminding me of Casey, because we discuss Noah and the Whale often.

#6- a song that reminds you of somewhere. Ron Pope's "I'm Yours" makes me think of Rocket Park tennis courts. Don't ask.

#7- a song that reminds you of an event. Supermassive Black Hole reminds me of when I would spend hours at Carli's house watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

#8- a song you know all the words to. off the top of my head... Something Good Can Work, Two Door Cinema Club.

#9- a song that you can dance to. There's a Chance (You and I) by JRA

#10- a song that makes you fall asleep. Flying from the "real" Peter Pan.

#11- a song from your favorite band. aaack! these are hard! right now it would be Grace Kelley by MIKA.

#12- a song from a band you hate. what makes you beautiful, one direction. gag gag gag. (i won't judge you, you don't judge me)

#13- a song that is your guilty pleasure. alright, I admit it. I like I'm Sexy and I Know it. 

#14- a song that no one would expect you to love. I really love Nice Guys by Nigahiga. Youtube it.

#15- a song that describes you. i'm stumped. i really have no idea.

#16-a song you used to love but now hate. Smile, Uncle Kracker. ughhh.

#17- a song you hear often on the radio. I don't listen to the radio.

#18- a song you wish you would hear on the radio. no songs that i like thank you, no overplaying here.

#19- a song from your favorite album. i really like the Juno movie soundtrack. I'm made of glue is my favorite.

#20- a song that you listen to when your angry. I listen to Chase Coy when I'm angry. calms me down.

and that is it folks!

it's my boat. not yours. so don't judge me:)

When you wish upon a star...

I'm a geek. A nerd. A doof. Whatever you may call me. And my geeky, nerdy, doofy self has an obsession. More of a passion. For Disney. And it's not going away anytime soon.

I know this for a fact, because my mother is also in love with Disney. Her (and mine) favorite place in the entire world is Disneyland. Neither of us have been to Disney World, but I plan on taking her when I'm grown and have money. Disneyland is my happy place. I've been on almost every ride.

I (and everyone else) have grown up with Disney. I've seen almost all the movies, been on every single ride at Disneyland, cry whenever I have to leave Disneyland and a lot more. My favorite princess is (and always has been) Belle. I would blow all my cash at Disney stores. When I heard there was one at City Creek, that was the store I was most excited about. I'm saving up for a Stitch iphone case. I'm really obsessed.

I love it because Disney is all about uplifting and heartfelt moments. It's about life's ups and downs, and all the beautiful moments in between. It's about friends and family and your "true love." Whenever I watch a movie or listen to a song, I just feel so happy and light inside. Disney brings light into my and a million other's lives. It's about magic, and wishing (not that I believe in wishing, but it's nice to pretend). It's about working hard (THAT i do believe in) and supporting others. It's about all the amazing things in life. Walt was an absolute genius, he knew what the world needed. Just a little mouse was the spark that set off the wildfire of joy that it brings.

"I hope people remember that it all started out with a mouse." -Walt Disney.

my best friend

So, if you've been following my posts, you realize that I don't have a best friend at school. I don't have a jr high girl or guy to tell secrets to, to cry to or to laugh about stupid things with. It just hasn't worked out for me yet. 

But I have a best friend waiting for me at home. It is my mother. My amazing mom who I do not deserve even a little bit. She is my rock, my best friend and my idol. I want to be like her when I grow up. She is like my older sister/buddy rolled into one. I will never be able to pay her back for all the amazing things she's done for me. Even though I'm a bratty teenage girl, she still puts up with me and even likes to hang out with me sometimes. It's kinda nice having a best friend that can drive, and has money that she likes to spend on you (sometimes). 

I love you mom! More than words can even describe!

Have you ever been on Pinterest, just minding your own business, when you go on someone's page, stalk them a bit, and think "wow. we could totally be best friends."

It happens sometimes, okay?

I've spent my whole Saturday night on Pinterest, and watching Nextflix, both while wearing gray sweats and a gray hoodie. I look like an elephant. But I'm a really cute elephant, and I don't have a trunk. So it's all good.

I feel bad for all you people who follow me on Pinterest. Because I've been in an inspirational quotes. And crafts. I made a bag today. It broke. =(

But quotes just make me happy. Silly ones and inspirational ones. and because I'm too challenged to type today, I'll just display my favorites to you!

you can do it.


little and fierce:)


also: I've been listening to THIS song nonstop. Don't worry, it's the clean version:)
