Today as I was sitting in class I realized how much I have changed since grade 9. Not just the way I look but also who I am. (Thank goodness the way I look has also changed greatly!) High school has changed me so much.
Going into high school I was VERY afraid. I had no real idea what to expect as I had gone to the same school for the past 10 years of my life. I had never really been to a new place with hundreds of people I had never meant before, but would eventually have to get to know. I was scared. Sure I had taken a tour of the school a couple times, and also had siblings who went there previously but it was still very new. (One thing you should know about me is that I HATE change.) I remember the first day walking into class and not knowing anyone. I sat down and just wanted to cry. It was the worst feeling ever. Then I remember how much I would have loved to do anything but be at school. I was shy and I would say this lasted until my first season of sports.
Once sports started for me I totally changed. I made more and more friends and began talking to people that I normally would not have. I was still shy, but quickly came to the realization that you can spend your time hiding. Sports were the best thing that could have ever happened to me and my high school career.
The best advice I could give anyone who is nervous about high school is to get involved. I know you hear it from your teachers now and it is hard sometimes to take their advice but it is so true. Getting involved makes your life so much better. It is also a great way to keep you out of the drama that high school has much of.
This makes me laugh so hard every time I watch it. Jennifer Lawrence is simply the best
Recently I have realized that my room is a little bit messy… Messy may be a bit of an understatement… So today I have made it my mission to clean it. I need to start backing up my winter clothes and bringing out the fresh summer threads. I really don’t want to clean, that is the real reason behind this blog post, which leaves me to procrastinate… Anyway I should really get this started! I am sick of not being able to find anything! Wish me luck!
This is a beautiful song about a little boy named Ronan. I first heard it last September while I was watching the Stand Up 2 Cancer Event on television. Even though that was months ago I still cry every time I hear this song. It’s just heartbreaking that this beautiful little boy didn’t get the chance to grow up. Ever since hearing this song I have been following the blog his Mum writes. http://rockstarronan.com/ She has so much strength and it amazes me. I encourage you to listen to the song and check out her blog. She will inspire you.
So for the past few months I have been trying to figure out what I would like to wear for prom. This has been becoming and increasingly difficult task. I have ideas about what I want to wear, but I am hopeless when it comes to making a decision. So I thought that I would come to you guys for advice! Kept in mind that I am petite, and a long dress would look awful on me.
So here are the links of the dresses that I like;
Let me know what you think! Also if you have an suggestions that are similar to those, please share the link with me!
Yesterday evening I went out with someone I had not seen since I was a little girl. I am not going to lie, I was SOOO nervous before going. Like seriously nervous. I am very awkward around new people so I was scared it was going to be a very strange encounter. At first I was a little shy, but that quickly faded. Which is very unusual for me!
We had a lovely time. I did a lot of talking… At the time I couldn’t think of very many questions to ask, but now I can think of so many. I wish I would have thought about these before. It was weird that I was so comfortable talking to her after so many years, but I was.
Since then I have had a permanent smile on my face and woke up at 3 a.m because I just could stop thinking. I am just happy. But now I am getting tired so maybe I should get some sleep.
