Stop Haunting Me.

Photos of me by Maddie.

You can't hear me and you wouldn't listen if you could. Yet, to me you are everything. Just know that I miss you. So terribly much. I have lost all sense of direction. I walk with the compass pointing south. Further, and further from who I should be.

Halloween: Take One.

I'm being Edie Sedgwick for Halloween this year and I have 2 parties that I am attending, so I am going to wear different Edie-esque outfits, hair and makeup to each one. My first party happened last night and this is how I turned out. Big earrings, stripped black & white dress, black opaque tights and a big faux fur coat to arrive in. It was tons of fun.
What is everyone else doing/being for Halloween this year?

I've always loved to wear dresses and skirts. I always feel better and more confident when I look nice. The leaves are changing colors, the wind is picking up and everyone's ordering hot coffee at Starbucks instead of the usual summer specials. Sweaters are being pulled out of the back of closets and tall socks are being put under open toe shoes. New seasons give a reason for new clothes. On sunnier days summer dresses are being paired with slouchy cardigans, and on those chilling days our bodies are not prepared for, tights and knitted scarves are thrown on.

This is when we toss our hair over our shoulders and cuddle up to friends in order to keep ourselves as warm as possible. These are the days I'm ready for. However, I am not prepared for blasting cold snow storms, sleds pulled by reindeer and shoveling the snow off of the driveway.

Live & Let Live.

There is so much life to live. Think about it, what if the people who were involved in early feminist movements would have given up on equal rights? Where would the world be? What if Rosa Parks wouldn't have sat on that bus that night? Where would the world be? What if William Shakespeare hadn't written all of those magnificent plays? Where would the world be? Think about the impact that one person can have on so many other people. And the love and hope every single person is capable of spreading to people that they don't even know. Albert Einstein. Pablo Picasso. Socrates. John Lennon. Me. You.
Never let anything or anyone slow you down or keep you from reaching your dreams. Never let life put you down to a level that you don't even want to keep going. Never.
Always let happy moments push you forward with life. Always let the hardest times you face push you to be a better person with a meaning behind every act, every sentence, every breath you take. Always.
Just think about. Think about your life. Everyone has those moments where what they do and who they've become pushes them to keep going to succeed. And to make everyone around them happy and inspired to have a purposeful life. We all have a purpose to live. No one can take that from you. But, no one can give you that purpose except for yourself. We aren't alone in this life that we live, but we are responsible for everything that we do.
So, live life with no regrets. Wake up with a smile on your face and stay up late soaking in every star and every late night text from your best friend.
Live with beauty. Live with acceptance. And most importantly, live with purpose.

I'm Not Sorry

I don't want to post images of girls smiling in colorful dresses. I want to post something where you look at the girl and you want to know the story behind the face. You see her and you want to tell her it's going to be ok. I want one of those posts today. The kind that makes your heart ache because you understand their pain, and you never want any one else to know such a deep pain.

Mass Chaos

This week has been extremely chaotic for me. I've been taking PSAT prep courses which consists of 3 hours of testing. I took my first IB blue book exam in 1st hour today, I hope the teacher doesn't mind my purple pen that I use as a good luck charm. I have had math homework, tests and projects. Reading a novel about a complete dystopian only to take tests on it the following afternoon. Article write ups, meteorology packets, sociological experiments and graphing calculators.
All I can say is, thank God it's the weekend. And that I now have time to take a nap or two and eat a Hershey's bar.

My Life.

I got to thinking of how I could describe myself, but I don't think that I can do that through words. So, bare with me here, but here are some pictures that I think will help to you all better understand to who I am as a person.

These are all pictures from May-September of my life. xoxo.
