Just Don’t (10 Things That Drive Me Up a Wall)

I realized that every great write has allowed you to connect to them, so in honor of me being an “writer,” I’ve decided to invite you into my life and share 10 things that drive me absolutely insane.

1)Midterms/Finals: So, as you know, midterms were this week. They’re tedious and honestly test our memory rather than our intelligence. Sitting in the same place for 2 hours at a time isn’t fair. I wouldn’t mind if, after we finished a test, we could go to our next test. For all but history and English, I had at least an hour of nothing to do. There’s only so much studying and reading you can do before wanting to cry because all the walls are closing in on you. Plus, it’s not like we can talk to anyone.

2)When people ignore/interrupt me: I mean, everyone hates this, but if I’m sitting with you and you’re talking with me but you keep interrupting me or I’m there and you’re ignoring me, like why are you even talking with me. Also when I’m in the middle of texting someone, like at least have the decency to make up an excuse to stop texting, I do it all the time.

3)Books that drag on: I don’t like short books, but I don’t want a book that the problem gets solved and then there’s 100+ pages left. Nothing more needs to be said.

4)When there’s like a drop of milk left: Do you really think this is enough milk for my cereal? Like come on. Just use the rest. I’ll make something else. Just don’t leave a drop.

5)When there’s one ice cube: Again, what is the use of a single ice cube. That’s absolutely irritating. Use it! I’m surely not going to. One ice cube isn’t going to make my water any colder.

6)When people try to squirm back into my life: Life for real if I tell you that I don’t think you should be part of my life anymore, don’t try and bother me. You’ve done something to me that I won’t forget and you trying to squirm back in with your idea of caring is not going to work.

7)When I want you to be part of my life but you don’t want to be: Like come on, we’re perfect. It’s not like I’ve killed anyone or have done anything worth mentioning. Let’s geek it out together. Me, you, pizza PlayStation, Pjs, and Netflix? Don’t act like that doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.

8)When I’m wrong: Okay, Okay. I know that everyone is wrong every once in a while, but please don’t remind me every time that I’m wrong. I know I’m wrong, and it doesn’t help that you point it out.

9)When you point out my flaws that I’m clearly working on in front of people: Does this need an explanation? Just move on with your life. If you need to point out my flaws to make yourself feel better then you have some things you should probably work on. I’m not perfect, but I’m a step ahead of you if I’m not going around pointing out insecurities.

10)When I give up/don’t do as good as I think I should: You may not know this, but I tend to be really hard on myself. I feel like not only do I have to prove myself to everyone else, but also to myself. You could be happy with me getting a 85% but I’ll strive to get a 98%, then be disappointed when I only get an 88%. Yes, I should push to do well in all that I do, but I push myself too much and it hurts me. This is something most people don’t know about me. And on top of that I don’t like asking for help. I’m really independent, if not too independent, mostly because I feel like I’m too much of a burden, and it sucks. For this reason I also tend to give up. I don’t like to ask for help, so I’ll just give up. That’s what I hope to change by doing this blog. This is something that I can do without asking for help.

Well, that’s really all. Like always, if you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend (strangers are cool too) or sharing it on Twitter and/or Facebook. Be sure to check out my other posts and don’t forget to follow this little bundle of joy (I’m actually not that nice but I am short so that’s half true). Thanks you for reading!

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

Ahhh! Finally! I’ve finally finished a book. What a relief it is to have the weight of self-guilt lifted off of your shoulders. On just Monday, I finally finished Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) By the one and only Mindy Kaling. My idol! As I’ve mentioned time after time, I love Mindy, she is amazing. And reading her book made me appreciate her more. To start off I’m just going to briefly describe why I only gave it 4 stars on good reads. So the first reason is that it seemed to kind of drag on towards the end, but then when it was the end, it was just an abrupt ending. Just like “yep that’s the end of my book. Go find a life now!” and really it shouldn’t have taken me as long as it did to read it, but I got 2/3 of the way through and it got less interesting. I’m not sure if it was because I couldn’t any longer relate to her since it was her life in production of The Office, or that I was legitimately bored. That’s another reason I didn’t like the book enough to give it 5 stars. I wasn’t any longer able to connect after her childhood. I felt more like I was reading a newspaper article about her success rather than an autobiography. Anyway, those were the only real downsides to the book for me.

Overall, I was able to relate to things that happened to Mindy in her life. Even though shes 21 years older than me (barely), she has had a lot of stuff happen in her teens and her child hood that any normal chubby kid would understand. You have a minimal group of friends, and you keep them because you don’t know if you are going to make more, but then you realize that nobody can define you and that you are absolutely freaking gorgeous. Honestly I’ve always been the chubby kid, probably was even fat at some points, and I still am a little chubby, but who isn’t. Okay well, bad question because I can name a ton of skinny people, but that’s not the point. Everyone is their own beautiful, and my beautiful is a short and cubby/curvy beautifulness and yours could be a tall skinny beautifulness but it’s all cool. Mindy says numerous times that she isn’t a traditional celebrity mainly because shes a size 8 not a size zero like most of them. It really gave me some insight on how size doesn’t matter and how alike celebrities are to normal people. That’s really all I have to say about the book. I could go on for hours about how connected I felt to childhood Mindy, but nobody wants that. Get your copy of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) on amazon for only $3.36 (plus shipping).

Finally, I’ve Done It

I have commitment issues. I start things, and then I get bored and give up. But, I’m not going to do that. I’ve finally come up with a foolproof (full-proof? I’m still not sure which one it is exactly) plan to ensure that stay with this. Well, like I said a few weeks ago, I aim to post every Sunday. Well I’ve been sorta doing that but I’m always rushing to write them last minute and I feel like they don’t come out as well as a planned post. So I’m going to save my sporadic posts that I come up with on the spot for weekdays when I have a snow day like today. Even my sporadic posts have some sort of pre planning. Or at least an inspiration that I developed a few hours up to few days in advanced. Then I’ll take my time with a specific topic and ill research and work on it throughout the week to make it the best it can be. I’ll continue to do reviews, and for the weeks I’m busy and can’t take my time, my Sunday post will be a review. So here’s my posting schedule:

Sunday: Preplanned topic (off a list of 52 blog topics, picking and choosing the ones I like)

Monday-Wednesday: Sporadic Posts (Not all the time, just when I have something on my mind)

Thursday: Review of the week (reviews can get annoying so limiting myself to one per week is a good idea)

Friday: Sporadic Post/ Interesting things that happened/ Exciting news/rants

Saturday: No Posts (sorry I have to plan for tomorrows post, and you’ll get tired of me.)

That’s pretty much my schedule for posting. I’ll definitely start on Thursday since I finally finished a book (finally!).  There probably won’t be a post tomorrow since I have to study and stuff, but if you ever forget I’ll put this on my home page. That’s really it. Like always, if you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend (strangers are cool too) or sharing it on Twitter and/or Facebook.

This Had a Good Title 7 Hours Ago When I Thought of It, But I Forgot.

*Note: This had a super amazing title when I thought of the idea to write about this topic, but it’s been 7 hours so I forgot.*

(Completely unrelated but really cute!)

So, as you all know its midterm’s week! Yay! (Please kill me.) So, I’m going to do a collective post about it on Thursday or Friday, but something will come up about it because it’s relevant to the topic. Anyway, I was just hanging out after my second exam, just an extra hour and twenty minutes, and my friends and I were hanging out, and trying as hard as we could to avoid going to the gym because ew. Here’s a little background on the kind of people we are. We’re the annoying ones that all the less smart people hate because we’re smart and we’re the ones that geek out because why the hell not! We also hate people and noise so we were allowed to hang out in the cafeteria until everyone was done, so that’s exactly what we did.

So back to the story. Eventually we had to go to the gym, so we did and the 5 of us climbed to the top of the bleachers and chilled. (Do people still say that?) I was reading my book and just jokingly I went to my one guy friend, let’s call him Tony, “Hey Tony, you should go play basketball” he said no and I was like yea I get it I like running but not for other people. Then I realized. People like us, as far as my friends go, usually actually like some sort of physical activity they just don’t like to do it in front of other people because we don’t want to be pushed against your standards. Like we get it you’re good at gym and sports but calm down. I feel like that’s a main reason we are the ones in gym who don’t do anything. The last one to be picked on teams (except volleyball, I’m good at volleyball and that’s a known thing). The ones who don’t do sports or participate in sport fundraisers. Physical activity isn’t worth it for us. We don’t want to be pushed into your standards. It sucks.

Yea we have our smarts going for us, but that’s about it. Of course there’s other things but that point is we don’t want to fit into your mold.  Like always, if you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend (strangers are cool too) or sharing it on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Crushing Really Hard

We’ve all had one. Whether it be on a super-hot celebrity or that guy/ girl in the back of class that geeks out every so often, we have all had a crush. Well, little did I know that there was science behind our sudden infatuation with someone. It starts as a small liking towards a person. Then you feel yourself obsessing over the person. You feel like you’re going insane, in fact, many symptoms of crushing fit those of mental illness. Well isn’t that just lovely. I am crazy! I already have a slight case of OCD so it doesn’t surprise me that the brain chemistry of a crush is similar to that of someone with OCD. Jesus my friends must find me terribly annoying when I obsess over a guy. 

Along with all the crazy things going on in your brain, there’s physical symptoms. As is I weren’t already obviously enough drooling over you? Let’s just add faster heart rate, flushed cheeks and trembling. That will totally make it less obvious that I’m going crazy and can’t stop thinking about you. We’ve all been there. A crush makes you feel powerless to the point where you can’t even try to stop obsessing. We get like this because chemicals are being released into our brain to make us go all crazy. Dopamine, oxytocin, and cortisol are the things making us insane. The dopamine rush is a chemical signal sending info in-between neurons. Dopamine is the same thing released when you use drugs. Pretty much when you have a crush you’re on drugs. What the hell.

15 Realities Anyone Who Crushes Easily Will Understand

To make it even better a crush can alter your brain chemistry for up to TWO years. Yea because I want to obsess over one person forever and then let it screw up my brain for 2 years. It’s not like I’ve had a crush that’s lasted longer than a year psh Nah. But in that case that I do have that happen and the stupid little infatuation doesn’t go away it’s called a limerence. This obsession called limerence to sound nice includes uncontrollable thoughts (check) extreme nervousness (check) and shortness of breath (check? I mean not shortness of breath but pathetic texts towards this person counts right? No? Okay.)

If you’ve ever had a crush, it usually means that the other person doesn’t feel the same about you, but when they do? That’s an amazing feeling. Kinda like magic.

When you realize there's even the slightest chance they're crushing on you too:

YOU’RE CRUSHING ON ME TOO?!?!?!?!?!

If you understand the struggle, you’ll probably get a kick out of these BuzzFeed articles/quizzes/videos.

Procrastination at its Finest and Trying New Things

Seriously, I’ve had all week to read due to the lack of homework, but I choose to not read. Besides Monday, I could’ve knocked out a lot of pages, maybe even finished a book or two, but I slept. I do not regret these naps, but I regret not reading.

Anyway, my week was sort of eventful. I started by writing an essay and going to dance. (Yay! Exercise!) Then Tuesday rolled around and in English we had to look at other people essays. Oh my lord. I didn’t realize that such a low level of writing existed. I feel terrible for being so rude, but the poor persons essay was so off topic and lacked a strong thesis, that I stopped reading half way through rewrote some things and then recommended that he just rewrite it. It was obvious that he really tried but he needs a guide to point him in the right direction. (No names for privacy reason, not that he reads my blog, but still, common curtesy). Then my teacher failed to give us back our essays for final drafts like all week. They were supposed to be due on Wednesday January 12 (13?) but now isn’t due until Tuesday because he still hasn’t given them back.

While I’m on the topic of English class, we started reading Romeo & Juliet by Shakespeare. To tell you the truth, I had absolutely no idea what was going on when I was reading the old English version (the original), so I’m totally cheating and bought No Fear Shakespeare Romeo & Juliet by Sparknotes (Who knew they would ever come in handy in Barnes & Noble). Just to clear this up, my teacher recommended it and has several copies, but they can’t leave his class room so I bought my own for studying reasons. (Plus I don’t like sharingJ) If you want to get it they sell it for $5.95 at B&N.

So here’s how my week ended, I had no homework on Wednesday or Thursday so I was under the impression that I was going to read all afternoon, then I fell asleep. For several hours. Like 3 hours on Wednesday and 4 hours on Thursday. I was going to read on Friday, but I went out and went to B&N and ended up reading No Fear so that I could catch up and know what’s going on. I procrastinate so much and it’s really bad! I should have finished Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me by now! I need to read more.

(Takes break to eat bagel and drink orange juice even though its 4:30 PM)

Since I’m still on the topic of school, let’s address my grades. I’m a generally good student, but some people don’t seem to understand that we all have our weak subjects. I take all honors classes, with the exception of English, never mind the fact that it’s my first year of high school and the workload takes a little getting used to. The first quarter, I will admit I didn’t put my best foot forward, and it reflected in my grade. Now, the second quarter, I have put a lot more effort into my work and take pride in what I complete. I may have a few absentminded grades in the grade book, but for the most part my grades are decent. About halfway through this quarter, two of my teachers incorrectly input a grade into the online grade book, causing my grade to drop. Severely. Thankfully my history teacher fixed my grade without a problem, and I now have an 83% in his class, hopefully a +85% by the end of this quarter (the end of this week). On the other hand, my English teacher has failed to give me a grade, causing me to have a 68.60% in his class. I have been hearing about my grade for a while, and my teacher keeps on saying he’s going to fix it but has failed to do so. (If you’re reading this please fix it!) Midterms are soon so I’ve been making a study guide for history and I feel fairly confident that I will do okay.

Okay, I’m done with talking about school. It’s terribly tiring. Anyhow, I have long eyelashes, and I remember reading a while back that if you apply petroleum jelly (Vaseline) to them they will grow longer. I didn’t have any jelly on hand, so I decided to use my eos lip balm. I applied it with a brow/lashes makeup brush, and I like it, I just didn’t like that it was obviously there and obviously NOT mascara. And then it hit me, I just had to make it black/brown so it would look like mascara. I scraped some eos into a little container, then I got some dark brown liquid eyeliner and tried to pour some in. it didn’t work so I took the applicator and just dabbed it onto the lip balm. I stirred it and wasn’t pleased with the color. I tried to add more, but it was still a light grey color. Then I was going to just put in some mascara but decided that it defeated the purpose of me “making” my own, so I went for some black eye shadow. Of course it was shimmery but it didn’t appear shimmer after I mixed (thank god!). After I scraped some black eye shadow up I tried and successfully made it all into the container. Then again I stirred this time pleased with the result. I added a little more just because I wanted it to be similar to my extreme black mascara that I swear by. I applied and it wasn’t as clumpy and the eye shadow causes it to dry similar to regular mascara. I feel as if I just created a cheaper version of my favorite mascara since it worked similarly. And you could probably just use dollar store lip balm and black/brown shadows and make 7 dollar mascara for 2 dollars. I’ll let you know if my lashes actually grow next Sunday.

I was going to write a semi-review for Lucy (2014), but this is getting long and I can write it tomorrow after I get home since I only have a half day. Like always, if you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend (strangers are cool too) or sharing it on Twitter and/or Facebook. Thank you!

This is Harder Than I Thought

So, a week ago I was all into the idea of blogging, and I still am, but my whole a blog a day has gone out the window. I didn’t realize that once I got back into school that I was going to have little to no time to blog, never mind finish a book. To solve these problems I’ve decided that I have to put at least an hour aside each day, or I’ll never finish a book. Second I will blog once a week plus whenever I finish a book to give a review. I’ll probably blog on Sunday mornings since that’s really the only time on weekends when I don’t get preoccupied by every little thing. I had plans to write all of this on Friday night but then I was tired and it was late, then I was busy and I didn’t want to have to correct all of my grammar. Finally I stopped putting it off because I didn’t want to throw away my resolution in less than a week. And now here I am. Anyway, I am currently ready Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling. A close friend of mine got it for me for Christmas and I absolutely love it. It’s just a bundle of laughs so far and I love Mindy so that makes it even better. Well, if you’re like me and have like no friends and don’t go anywhere then you understand that that was pretty much my week and that it only gets slightly more interesting than that. I’m almost done with the book, so expect a review sometime this week. Like always, if you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend (or strangers) or sharing it on Twitter and/or Facebook. Thank you!

Book/Movie Review and a Life Experience

I didn’t quite understand what Melody Grace was talking about the first dozen times I read her book, Unbroken. I never really had a comparison between the “two kinds of love,” the steady breeze and the hurricane. For those of you who haven’t read this book, or have and don’t recall the beginning of the first chapter, here’s the two kinds of love.

“The steady breeze is slow and patient. It fills the sails or the boats in the harbor, and lifts laundry on the line. It cools you on a hot summer’s day, brings the leaves of fall, like clockwork every year. You can count on a breeze, steady and sure and true. But there’s nothing steady about a hurricane. It rips through the town, reckless, sending the ocean foaming up the shore, felling trees and power lines and anyone dumb or f***ed up enough to stand in its path. Sure, it’s a thrill like nothing you’ve ever known: your pulse kicks, your body calls to it, like a spirit possessed. It’s wild and breathless and all-consuming. But what comes next? ‘You see a hurricane coming, you run,’ my mom told me the summer I turned eighteen. ‘You shut the doors, and you bar the windows. Because come morning, there’ll be nothing but the wreckage left behind.’ Looking back, I wonder if Mom saw it in my eyes: the storm clouds gathering, the dry crackle of electricity in the air. But it was already too late. No warning sirens were going to save me. I guess you never really know the danger, not until you’re the one left, huddled on the ground, surrounded by the pieces of your broken heart. That’s the thing about hurricanes. Once the storm touches down, all you can do is pray.”

Pretty much, Melody Grace was explaining the two types of love. In this books, it makes sense that it has to do with weather, since most of it takes place in Beachwood Bay. It’s been a while since I read this book, but after watching Labor Day (2014) last night, I finally understood what Melody was aiming towards, which caused me to link the book to my life.

The book overall wasn’t that great. It was very predictable and I only ever reread it because I loved the feeling of Juliete (main character) getting her happiness and her love. Labor Day is a whole other story. I loved it from beginning to end and even though I’ve seen it a few times, I still hope that the ending changes. I still hope that Adele gets her love.

So, I connected the book and the movie because, in the movie, Adele in divorced from a steady breeze, her son’s father. Then Frank comes around and changes everything. Even though Adele is risking her life, she keeps Frank because she loves him. He is her hurricane.

When it comes to my life, I have had a fair share of steady breezes and a hand full of hurricanes. All of my steady breezes (close friends) have stayed with me through everything. They’re predictable. They won’t leave me behind. All the hurricanes I’ve ever met were never quite my friends. Just someone I had met and talked to for a few days and then that was it. Except one. I have this one friend, I guess you could say, that’s a hurricane. They’re the worst, yet best person I’ve ever met. They keep me on my feet and make me happy, yet cause me so much pain at the same time. Hurricanes are unpredictable. My hurricane is constantly in and out of my life, and I always say I’m done, but I never really am. I don’t want to be done. Having a hurricane is fun. You wake up each day wondering what’s in store. A hurricane is something that everyone should experience. 207 days. You are my hurricane. Am I yours?

Movie Review: Gravity (2013)

Don’t let go

Just incase you’re as behind as me, and have not yet managed to see Gravity, then here’s the gist of it according to Wikipedia.

“Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission. Her commander is veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), helming his last flight before retirement. Then, during a routine space walk by the pair, disaster strikes: The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Ryan and Matt stranded in deep space with no link to Earth and no hope of rescue. As fear turns to panic, they realize that the only way home may be to venture further into space.”

Sounds crazy, right? I have a tendency to ruin movies, (or so I’ve been told) so just a heads up.
Anyway, at first I was kind of like I don’t know if I’m going to like this, but I’ll give it a shot. Within the first five minutes I was glued to the screen. It starts off so calm and then BAM! It hits you in the face like a brick flying off of a ceiling fan that’s spinning 2000 mph. There was times where I was wondering if I was really watching it and times that I hoped it was almost over. Gravity was just super amazing.
Besides the plot line, the graphics were extremely realistic and I was convinced they actually went into space to shoot the movie. If you can fool me into believing that something so unbelievable is real, then I’m going to watch your movie whether its good or not. I may not be interested but I’ll be happy with the graphics and realism.
The budget was $100 million and the movie got $716.4 million in the box office. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a score of 97% based on reviews from 305 critics, with a certified fresh rating and an overall score of 9/10. All in all, everyone, me included, should watch, or re-watch, this Hollywood masterpiece.

My New Year’s Experience

So, as we all know, 2015 has begun. That means, that last night was full of celebrations, and fun, and love. My night started out with taking a Uber to my father’s friend’s house. No big deal, right? Well, this Uber driver was in some sort of rush, and was speeding; it was actually quite frightening. Once we arrived at the destination, we were greeted by our amazing hosts and friends. We ran in the front door, being that is was so cold, and that we were all going to possibly freeze to death. Once we got inside we all hung out and talked and ate snacks, and then it happened. The hosts announced that they were engaged! We were all so excited, and it was just amazing.

After a while, I pulled out my book. I am reading Dark Water by Laura McNeal, to begin the year. For more information on the book Click Here. Any who, I was just beginning to read the first page when my I was offered soda. While I do enjoy soda it wasn’t an ordinary soda. it was honey basil soda. While it was pretty good going down, it had a strong after taste that I didn’t enjoy. But hey, new year, new things. It is very “basily,” I guess you could say, in the gross aftertaste part, and apparently that makes me picky? If you’re interested, you an Click here to learn how to make your own because you can’t purchase it online anywhere (second recipe). Since I had already tried one new thing, I decided to be bold and try my fathers very hot homemade salsa dip. They first one I tried was actually really good, and wasn’t making my tongue feel as if it were going to fall off. The second one. Oh My Lord. I couldn’t feel my tongue for a good 15 minutes. Needless to say I was done trying new things… or so I thought.

At around 9, we all sat down for a family style dinner of meat and potatoes, except the meat was this glorious, perfectly cooked, lamb that I could not get enough of. Dinner was fantastic and I gladly ate 3 plates. After dinner I sat with the guys, (my dad, the guy host, and one of their friends) and I learned a bunch of computer stuff. I couldn’t explain it to you in a thousand years, but it was interesting, and I really enjoyed it. I didn’t feel like an awkward, brainless child. We continued to hang out, and listened to music, had fun, and just plain enjoyed ourselves.

At around 11 pm, the champagne rolled out. I was perfectly fine with my bottle of water, but everyone insisted that I try the home made champagne, and that it was better that I have my first drink around adults. Well, I really didn’t want to, but I said hey why not. New year, new things. Champagne is so gross. I will not be touching another drink for a very long time. I’ll stick to my bottle of water. After that we just ate dessert watched the ball drop and ended up Ubering back home at around 2:30. The Uber driver was really cool and its his birthday (shout out to you awesome Uber driver who blasted music in his car and was driving people around on his birthday). I got home at around 3, and I just knocked out and didn’t wake up until about an hour ago. I had lots of fun, and I can’t believe its already 2015. If you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend (or strangers) or sharing it on Twitter and/or Facebook. Thank you! Happy New Year!
