On School

School started a week and a half ago. This year, I'm faced with the typical new things, like classes, work load, schedule, and teachers, but I have also (re)joined the choir and the speech team, and we have a new volleyball coach. While I am excited about all of this new stuff, I can't help feeling like a scared little freshman, not knowing what to do at all and diving into whatever I can while screaming bloody murder. The start of school makes everyone feel really scared, agitated, depressed, or all of the above, I think, and I am most certainly no exception. I have been very mopey and angry and screamy and cry-y lately, and I have definitely been taking refuge in God, music, coffee, and exercise now more than anything. While I sit here, once again stressed and not helping myself by procrastinating and writing a blog post, I just wonder if I'm the only one who feels this way about a little thing like school. I'm sure I'm not, because there are billions of people out there on the planet and while my personality may be unique, I don't think emotions are. Let me know, my beautiful audience of -2 (speaking of which, really sad that my annoying twitter campaign to get Kate Nash to read my blog about her failed. Either she saw it and didn't give a flipinflap or just didn't see it at all). See, it's not that I hate school, I'm just worried. Since I lost my psychic abilities in the 3rd grade, I no longer know what's going to happen this year. Maybe that's a good thing. Really, this post has no purpose, I just wanted to vent. Also, please read my other posts/comment. Nobody's read anything in a while and I'm losing my self-esteem...just kidding, but I do have a lot to say and would like people to know that I have more to say this particular awfulness. I would also like to know what people think and I don't have a lot of comments. Thanks!!

  1. While I don't have much to add about your school feelings (it's been a while since I was in high school), I want you to know that your anxiety and venting are universal concepts. Don't lose your self-esteem and don't stop writing. You've got a wonderful writing voice, and blogs are made for such voices to be heard.

What am I doing here?

So, I'm now on the Internet, creating a brand for myself. Here's the deal: I'm a writer, dreamer, observer, filmmaker, Clare Maguire super fan, student, music lover, TV fanatic, a not-so movie buff and ultimately, a wannabe. At the moment, I'm not particularly anything, but I can be. By reading this blog, you have discovered me, and I just want to say thanks. I don't aim to be a genius, but I do aim to make at least one person smile. Please keep reading, because I certainly need an audience. After all, I am an attention seeker! Now here's some more about me... I'm inspired by these people (not necessarily in this order): John Hughes George Lucas Fannie Flagg Diablo Cody Ellen Page Tina Fey Amy Poehler Kristin Wiig Clare Maguire Kate Nash Lily Allen Adele I watch these TV shows: Gilmore Girls I Love Lucy Degrassi: The Next Generation The Golden Girls Gigantic Law and Order: Los Angeles Harry's Law Glee Law and Order: Special Victi

Book Covers and Feminis...um???

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I recently joined the speech team at my school. Now, I know what you're thinking, non-existent readers, She's a choir nerd, an academic geek, an AV nerd, and now a speech geek, too???  Yes, yes I am. On a similar note, I think I'm switching back to glasses. Anyway, I competed for the first time this past weekend and learned a lot. Whoopee. I just thought I'd share some of my knowledge with you: 1. Don't judge the kid who wears a backpack, a bow tie, and square glasses. He's REALLY GOOD. He will make semifinals. He will beat you and then tell you how awesome you are. And then you will feel awesome and cheer him on when he beats you. Weird, huh? 2. Just like the weird kid who doesn't talk may be really nice, the kid who is nice in the beginning may be really competitive. He will stare at you and try to throw you off!! And it might work!!! Then he'll beat you...badly...and you will be angry. 3. Karma may or may not b
