Disneyland.... Magic Kingdom! ...Disneyland.

Yep! We're currently at the happies place on earth (explains why I'm not blogging). Hoorah! But phone is deciding to die, so this is all for now.

Why we don't get recess in High School

For those of you not currently in school, I'll bet you fondly remember those days that a "motivational" speaker would come and talk at you for an hour about life and how it's important to go for your goals; stuff a high school students just lets in one ear and out the other. But today, a worthwhile speaker came and talked to us and some of the stuff actually stuck.
He talked about normal topics, but put a twist on them; he made things interactive and exciting, so much that even the kids who never pay attention actually were. It was phenomenal. The thing that stuck with me the most, though, was when he explained why we don't still get recess. How, as a five year old, you'd always run just to get the good red ball to play kick ball with, how all the younger kids are so energetic and willing to engage. He did, however, note that when you get to about 5th grade, people start calling those things childish and recess turns into stand around, stare at the pavement and talk (aka: free period). So, taking away recess wasn't a ploy against our imagination, like some claim it is, it was merely because we don't have enough willpower or ambition to use it for what it's given for. 
That whole discussion just really stuck with me. We're constantly given things and are too lazy to push it to our full potential. Even my current situation shows this. It's midnight on a school night and despite the three -hour nap that I divulged in earlier, I'm still tired, and what am I doing? Blogging. I'll probably get to bed in an hour or two, even though because of it, I know that I'll suffer tomorrow. I've had an assignment for the past few weeks to be reading Jane Eyre. Our project is due this Thursday and have I even started the book? No. 
I know this blog isn't coined as a life lesson blog, but even though it's a fashion blog, I play on including stuff like this quite a lot. It just makes you think and sometimes, even when you're reading blogs for fun, it's good to think.

Just around the corner...

Poofy dresses.
Heels that freak out skyscrapers.
Bags that are too small to fit your Droid.
Dancing til the night is through...


Yep, it's coming up?
Am I excited? That's debatable. Can I make it amazing? That, too, is debatable.
I love my dress though. It's red and flowy with flowers on it. and i have these beautiful hanging Givenchy earrings and pretty diamond-ish bracelets and these gorgeous silver strappy heels. I just desparately need a clutch.

And a boy.

Aren't I just so super-duper cute?

Took these pictures waiting for the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York.
It seems so long ago, but it hasn't even been a month! Speaking of, sorry I haven't posted since I was in New York. I've had a LOT going on. Our school just got done with Romeo and Juliet .
My friend and I during Romeo and Juliet. I'm on the right and my talented mum made me dress. She's too cool.

But honestly, amazing experience this past month. The week after I went to New York (No review for a while, I feel I'd bore you with the lack of pictures.) we had a choir tour to California which was WAYYY too fun. I got to go see Wicked and spend time at Disneyland with my best friends. It was quite lovely. After that, I've had rehearsals that have gone until crazy hours of the night and have been sick for the past week and a half. I have no idea what it is, but my nose is all congested, I can't stop coughing and I get terrible headaches. Hopefully it goes away all the way soon because for the past week I had absolutely NO voice. 
I have a performance for choir tonight, so hopefully it comes back at least a little for that.
I also made my own skirt last week! It's too cute; it's lime green with fuschia Elvis' all over it. It's the first thing I've sewn completely on my own and I'm pretty proud!
I decided I'm going to start making some jewelry and try to sell it to vendors around the area because there are quite a few boutiques that are looking for & accepting new pieces and I have some pretty good ideas.

Welp. A new entry should be on it's way by this weekend. Hopefully with some pictures!
