I started using Spotify months after everyone else did; I didn't really want to get on board the bandwagon, but I caved. Spotify's pretty nice except that sometimes it doesn't have a couple of songs that I have to head on over to Soundcloud for, but other than that it does the job. So Spotify had this diagnostic test for users that showed number of plays, top albums. top playlists that revolve around your usage of the app. Of course on mine they mostly pertain to Leighton.

Weekly Crush //

This is pretty accurate about a few aspects of my life and I think that's a reason my I created this blog. I can kind of share my feelings, not with just the nonexistent people that read my blog, but also with myself.


Because it was finals week there was not much homework to do so I ended up watching the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. There is so much controversy about the show and how people start to feel ugly or fat, but I think that people should take a different perspective. That perspective essentially says that you feel threatened and paranoid that someone is attacking you, yet no one is but yourself. The models were beautiful and they had very nice bodies, so I thought to myself that I should get into shape. So I did tons of ab work exercises. If you need motivation to workout just watch the VS Fashion Shows.


This goes back to #2. A Great Big World was a performer at the fashion show; the song surprisingly sounded alright with its whole happy and vibrant atmosphere. This song is pretty sad and sweet and just charismatic. If anyone wants to practicing crying this song will do the trick.

Erin Heatherton
Karlie Kloss

Both of these gorgeous women are Victoria Secret models. To be honest when I first say Karlie Kloss I thought her name was pretty awesome, but she looks so cute to me, like a little kid cute; I think its the short hair. Upon seeing Erin Heatherton I thought that she looked very similar to a girl that graduated from my school; of course Erin is thinner and has that model smile. I think that these two are my favorite of all of the Victoria Secret Angels.

Since it's WINTER BREAK I have a bunch of time, which means TV SHOW BINGE WATCHING. So this show Revenge is really awesome, its all about revenge and manipulation and of course those are the two of my favorite nouns; the plot is also different than a lot of other shows, well I haven't exactly seen many other soap operas this show is really good. I strangely love Emily VanCamp's speech pattern as Emily Thorne. Revenge is like a more elaborate, politer/frostier version of Mean Girls.

This Club // 1000 Subscriber

So recently after browsing YouTube for a bit I found this really awesome song. It's a pretty happy song that you should listen to especially since its that time of year, finals.

While listening to the song, I noticed that this band only had 999 subscribers, so I took the chance and I became the 1000 subscriber. It was pretty awesome and when I tweeted it I got a reply. #awesomeness

Shoutout // Sujin Jeong

+Sujin Jeong  wanted one so I thought "sure, why not?" I met Sujin when I was a freshman in Mrs. Sarkar's Bio Honors class. That class definitely made me rethink biology as any kind of future path. We suffered in that class with Anuja and Joseph; all four of us were at the same table all year and we bonded over Sarkar's pop quizzes, detailed lab reports, and field trip scavenger hunts. Sujin was someone that I thought was incredibly intelligent and talented, not only academically, but socially in addition to Speech & debate and martial arts. I think that we specifically bonded over video chats that we would have to study for bio tests/quizzes, I think that sometimes they helped, but a lot of the time we had technical difficulties or we would just got off topic.
One distinct memory I had was when Sujin came over to my house and we ended up watching Mean Girls, baking brownies, and sorting clothing. It was a lot of fun and one of the better days during freshman year.

Sujin is an amazing person overall and I can always learn something new from her, from coaching me in Duo to teaching me songs for Bio. You should definitely check her out on Instagram: @Sujinah

Weekly Crush //

This room is so pretty and it kind of reminds me of Ally's house. I think windows are so important and I love the light; it makes everything seem happy with no worries. I feel that a lot of people are filled with stress and worry that we should just be happy and do what makes us smile and laugh, whether it be with the company of friends or just some alone time with yourself.


This week has been especially exciting for me in terms of music. Most people don't know that Leighton can sing, in addition to some of her club songs she has some really cute indie songs. I found 2 other songs that were swirling around on the internet. It's virtually impossible to find any of her songs anywhere. I literally waiting for her (hopefully soon to come) album to drop so I can just replay it constantly. At first these songs might not be your cup of tea, but I just love them both. To be honest I'm singing them both right now :3


This song is actually a really good song as well; it definitely doesn't sound like the previous 2 songs but this song is a good way to boost your confidence if you're feeling a little down.

How witty is this? I think  I told this joke a bunch of times to people when I saw this and they looked at me with a mixture of disbelief, shock, and that "oh my god...." look.

Lately I've been obsessed with tattoos. Don't worry I plan on getting a tattoo anytime soon; to be honest I'm to afraid of the pain and the permanentness, I'm definitely not ready to commit myself to anything like this. But I found this little DIY temporary tattoo how to online, it didn't work, but I think I would definitely want some tattoo makers to experiment. I really like this little star tattoo ★.

Weekly Crush //


This is actually a really amazing remix/mash up of a lot of the most popular songs of 2013.


I recently found a new love for electronic/techno music. The song sounds so awesome even without lyrics, take a listen and enjoy.

I know this is my second post about mermaids on weekly crushes, but this literally explains my entire life and childhood. Who cares about legs when you can breathe underwater and swim the depths of the ocean. 

On Thursday I volunteered at the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot. Usually I participate in the 5K, but this year I figured I could kill 2 birds with 1 stone by volunteering and getting points for the highs school club I'm in(NHS). Anywho, I was looking through my clothing for something to wear and I found some yoga capris that I had gotten when I last went to San Diego. I always thought that capris didn't keep warmth in very well, but they actually insulate your legs very well.

I feel that sometimes I'm a pushover and I don't want people to be able to just walk all over me. That's probably why my spirit animal is Blair Waldorf.
