Life Changer

If you are my friend on Facebook or a follower on Twitter, you know I was pretty excited that this weekend happened. If you're not, I'm pretty jazzed that this weekend happened. The past year (at least the second half) was pretty incredible. I have a feeling that incredible is about to continue.

This past year, I did one thing I promised myself I'd never do. Now I know what your thinking, but it was certainly not anything bad. In fact, it turned out to be a great decision. A life changing one. As in one that changed my life.

Because of said decision, I met incredible people, I've done more things I didn't think I'd ever do, and, ultimately, I came out of my shell (YAAAAY CLICHES). It's because of this one decision that some amazing people came into my life and I stopped caring about people judging me as much. I'm finally the loud, obnoxious person I knew that I always was outside of my house.

So I want to thank y'all. Thank you for inspiring me, talking to me, listening to me, and pulling me off the stupid wall I was leaning on. Thanks for saying hi to me in the hallway and in public and for encouraging me. Without you, this year would not have been the same. This incredible weekend would not have been the same. I would not be the same. All of you have saved me from a life of hoarding and crazy cats and soap operas. I just thought about that, and it's scary, so now I'm even more grateful. Remember what you've done for me and keep doing it for other people.

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 o…

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

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 be real…
