The Night Sky

Yes, I study constellations and galaxies outside of Astronomy class.

This is Ursa Major, one of my favorite constellations. It is known for being in the shape of a bear; however, I call it a dog shape because that's what I see.

Rainy Days and Fridays.

The sound of rain is so peaceful, so real. I'm going to enjoy every minute of this.

Back In The Routine.

First week back at school and I'm very excited about this year. I have friends in all my classes and all my teachers seem to be great! My messenger bag straps are already strained from the 20lb math book I was given the first day and right now I am procrastinating doing a short history reading and write up. Waking up at 6AM is brutal, but worth it to see everyone whom I missed all of summer! I've already made new friends too! How's everyone's week been?

Last Day.

So, it's the last day before I go back to school and I just got home from a morning coffee trip with some friends. Which got me to thinking about what kind of a person I will be this upcoming year. And if I will be making tons of new friends, or if my previous bonds will tighten or fall apart. I have decided to not let myself lose any friends, but I will let myself gain new ones. I set goals for myself to maintain a good GPA, study things I am interested in, stay positive and make the most out of everything. I am going to be happy.

As Summer Dies Down

As summer ends fall begins, and with the new season a new wardrobe is in order. Going back to school is never 'fun', but going back to school shopping can be one of the best things for a girl to do. She has an excuse to get new shoes because her toes will freeze with the sandals she is currently styling and she needs new sweaters and cardigans to go over her summer dresses and skirts. So, as i go shopping constantly for the next few days I am looking specifically for a few new things.
1. Ballerina flats, oxfords, boots, etc. Basically any shoe that will cover my toes and is of course cute and wearable with the majority of my wardrobe.
2. A new bag for my books. Luckily I found one for an excellent deal! It's a simple faux leather bag that has a few compartments for pens and calculators and then a big pit for my text books and binders.
3. Little things like hand sanitizer, lipstick, lip balm, mints, gum, and mini lotions to keep with me throughout the school day in case of any emergency event. Be sure to keep a killer shade of lipstick to make any day glamorous.
4. Tights of all colors and textures to keep my legs warm, but still have the option of wearing dresses.
5. A few sweaters that will slip on nicely with a pair of jeans for lazy Mondays, and then cardigans and blazers to wear over dresses. I want to get more knits this year, and then I want to get cardigans in several colors, so that I have options to mix up the same dress with several combination's of shoes, cardigans, tights and of course jewelry.
6. Which brings me to rings. Lots and lots of rings. This can turn a lazy Monday look into something cute and thought out looking all by just adding some shine to your fingers.
7. Also, new shades of nail-polish. More autumn colors to play around with will add color to anything.
8. New music. After tests and during silent working time music can really get me focused. The school has new restrictions on when you can listen, but it's still good to keep it around. Just in case. Right now Lily Allen and Ingrid Michaelson are at the top of my playlist.
9. High socks with cute shoes is also coming into style now, and I wouldn't mind experimenting with trying out that style for myself.
10. Finally, new hair styles can add so much confidence to the fall. Most people grow out their hair in the fall and winter and cut it off in the summer, I don't plan on doing either, but just changing the way I wear it everyday. My hair is extremely curly, so I want to try out a few fun up-dos, like high buns, and then put it in side ponies or down other days. Just to try new things.

And Then It Began..

Some memories of mine from the past year.

Summer is almost over, but there is still plenty of time to have a memorable last few days, or even if you are back in school, to make the most of the warm afternoons. I plan on going shopping a few more times with people who I haven't seen nearly enough of this summer. And I'm also going to have a few last sleepovers, go to some parties and go see movies. This fall I want to make school more of an important focus for me. I plan to dress better, make new friends, keep in close touch with current ones, raise my GPA and class rank, and learn things I am interested in.
