Halfway Senior Year Check-Up
I’m actually rather excited. Colleges, for the most part, was a check. Scholarships, working on it, but not stressfully. Yearbook, is close to 75% done, and we’re submitting pages every day. Homecoming flew past in a breeze, Senior Banquet is coming up and I might actually be looking forward to that. Prom might be weird, but the idea of going with my best friend kind of put it in a...
I actually just called you to make sure you were...
Emotionally intelligent people are self-aware. It is composed of four elements; the ability to perceive emotions (to recognize them in faces, music, and stories), to understand emotions (to predict them and how they change and blend), to manage emotions (to know how to express them in varied situations), and to use emotions to enable adaptive or creative thinking. Those with emotional...
The Art In My Heart
My favorite quotes from every song on Clara C’s album The Art In My Heart. Songs in no particular order. Offbeat - “Forget the air, I’ll breathe you instead.” Fool’s Gold - “Taking lefts, then taking rights. How many right turns will take me up?” Loveprint - “And all that I wanna do is give the world a love that is true. Share the love that I have...
Heartstrings - Clara C
Hey baby, it’s easy to believe in you and me The smiling, the laughing It’s comin’ so easily It’s a funny thing, this love thing It only falls into my arms When I’m not looking for it at all Hey baby, you’re doing All the things that make me Sing sing sing sing sing sing Untying these heartstrings That I’ve been triple knotting I wanna take it slow and...
Heartstrings - Clara C
There's A Place I've Always Been
Was I ever afraid of the stage? I can’t remember a time when I was, but I must have been at some point. That’s only natural, right? Or maybe I’m just comfortable there. Happy there. Spreading music, spreading art. They go hand in hand, after all. Like the married couple you know is never going to divorce. I’ve been doing this since I was five. Putting myself out there, in...
Hannah: and I don't know what the hell I'm doing because I'm a flippin drum!!!
Is what will get me through the next month and a half. Seriously.
Me: If I could put my big round panda on a string and make him float, he’d look like a dirigible panda… XD Hannah: BAHAHAHAHHAHAA Me: ;D You know your best friend is nuts when that’s the first thing she thinks of when she wakes up:) Hannah: Correct. + TADA
I was trying to write a song on my guitar. Somehow, when I wasn’t paying attention, it turned into Never Say Never by Justin and Jaden Smith. So without even trying I learned how to play it… and hey, it’s not too bad acoustic. @_@
You Know You're A Dork When
You see your fellow Hello Kitty-obsessed teacher in the hallway, and you’re both wearing Hello Kitty shirts, stop, throw your hands up in the air, exclaim “YAY!” and then walk away like nothing ever happened. I love Ms. Blighton. :D
Tomorrow: Partly cloudy, high of 70 degrees. Next Tuesday: Wintry Mix, high of 30 degrees. WTF?
I have to decided to spend 3 months not touching my paycheck to save up for that Nikon D90. And/or offsetting the cost by selling the D70… but my grandfather gave that to me, so I don’t know. As a camera, I don’t kow how much I like the D70 though. Also, my heart is really set on living in The Varsity at UMD. Lets hope that this Saturday’s appointment doesn’t crush...
We’re born alone, we die alone. How true is this statement? We’re birthed from our mothers, a soul that loved us from before we were even born. When we die, our friends, family, and their hearts are all with us. Always. We make the passage through life and weave in and out of relationships between friends and significant others; it is a natural fact. In all honesty, I don’t...
You Give Me Something To Dream About
Is an issue. I’m tumbling from the hotel in Inner Harbor, which I think is ridiculous, but I’m doing it just cuz I can. Fun stuff. Anyways, off to bed. Tommorow, I’m going to unite the world.
Lacking Brain Development
My dad was going on about how I’m lacking in math because I’m younger than my classmates and that gives me a biological disadvantage. In my head: Then what the heck happened to Ryan Anderson?!
One Of Those Rare Moments
I’ve been frustrated, I’m not going to lie. It’s been hard. Spring semester admissions is a bitch, but I’m not alone. Like literally, I’m not alone. I’ve got an eye looking out for me in every direction, in every school, on every campus, and it all seems a little more possible every day. Coming home today, feeling lighter and more sure of myself, I felt the...
Boyce Avenue Will Be In D.C.
And of course it’s on a weekday in the middle of March which is a pretty bad month for me so I highly doubt it’s possible to go so I’m just going to go crawl under a rock now and cry.
Hell Explained By A Chemistry Student
The following is an actual question given on a University of Arizona chemistry mid term, and an actual answer turned in by a student. The answer by one student was so ‘profound’ that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well : Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or...
Oyamel Cocina Mexicana in D.C.
I don’t think I’ve ever done a restaurant review before, but I just have to this time. This is how phenomenal my lunch just was. Okay, so first of all, great location. Spending a day in D.C. on the Mall is a great way to work up your appetite, which is exactly what I did. Using a quick google maps search on my phone, my boyfriend and I found a cluster of restaurants on 7th St and D St...
Does This Make Sense?
Note: I’m going to take this analogy out of the real world so it will be understood without the biases and prejudices already set out in today’s society. Lets say, that there is an alien world called Elvinia. On this planet there are two races, the Willows and the Branches. The Willows have forever been the dominant race. They have taken more power, they are the ruling force, and...
HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY COURTNEY
This is the legit one. I know I skated over it in the last few years (well mainly because I couldn’t bring myself to care four months in advance…) but your birthday is always important to me no matter what, promise. :D So you’re legal. That’s ridiculous. Because once upon a time, we were like this: And then later, we were like this: And somehowwww, we went on like...
I'm Supposed To Write An Angry Love Song
No inspiration. La la la. I’ll get back to this later.
Favorite couple, before AND after transformation. :D
Bucknell VS UMD
Here’s to pro and con lists! UMD Pros: Big school, a MILLION things to do. Never bored. Connections. Everyone knows Maryland. Close to home, close to my parents. And grandparents, for that matter. Great school, not gonna lie. #16 in the country for Computer Science, my major. Easy access to D.C. Internships, yes? I could be on the figure skating team, possibly. Beautiful amount of...
Me: Max, you no longer have a girlfriend. She just died when she saw Pikachu. Max: ……….D: PIKAACHUUUUUUU! I HATE CHUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
Me: I don't understand why you don't wuv me as much as I wuv youuuu.
Courtney: ... because you say things like THAT...
Isn't It Funny?
In my head, I always feel a lot older than the age I am. And I’ve always felt that way. Things that happened, I took them with stride. I’m old enough for this, I can handle this. But there are things that happened when I was 13, and if I heard somewhere that a 13 year old girl had gone through the same things, I would be horrified. I fought earthquakes at 15, and the thought that a 15...
YES YES YES.
In Medias Res
It is an interesting thing, to be living in the present. We all have a past, we all have a future - though some like to believe they do not. We are in the middle of it all. We always look back at what we once had, what we once loved. We regret choices we made. We reminisce. We understand and forgive, but we never forget. This past will never escape us; facing it is beautiful, facing it is...
