Life Lessons // One

To be honest I really believe that my personality and character have changed a lot in the past 2 years. High school has really opened my eyes to all of the things that I haven't been able to see before. One of the things that I have learned is that people are complex. I've always made hasty generalizations about people and I'm sure that even on here I've just classified people and stuck them into groups, but the reality is that everyone is different and that there isn't just one thing that defines people. Similar to Tris in Divergent, where although she chooses Dauntless, she still holds characteristics of Abnegation and Candor. On the outside it is almost too easy to judge people by appearances, another by their behavior and the way they speak. 

There is this girl at my school named Bijou, at first glance most would think she is pretty(I personally thought she was alright-looking) and typical girly-girl. After hearing her speak you would think that she's a not-so-smart, flighty girl. But in reality, oh my, she is one of the smartest people at my school; she spends almost all of her time studying and tries hard to put on an act that displays that everything is easy for her. Freshman year I had Spanish with her and thought that she wasn't so smart and tried hard to be cute. Sophomore year I had Spanish with her again, yet it 5/6 Honors which is a pretty grueling, intensive class. Many people struggled in that class because of the way our teacher thought. I remember looking over a test that we had just gotten back me with my pitiful B- and her with a stunning A+. I was extremely confused and wondered how a volatile, air headed girl could have done better than me. After discussing with several other people, I realized that she was extremely smart but acts dumb. For several months I had contemplated how someone can put on an act everyday for so long. Does she feel people would treat her differently? Some days I try to "act" differently and it is too exhausting. She is an extremely enigmatic person. But it really isn't my place to judge someone; another thing that's changed about me is my mindset. Freshman year I ranted all the time, everyday like there was no tomorrow. Talking about other people, gossiping to let it out, but in reality it made me feel more worked up. Now I would say that I don't talk about other people as much. I have more things to worry about then other people and what they're dealing with; I know that it might sound critical, but it really isn't any of our business to go into other people's lives and started picking at their decisions and choices. 

If you currently are in a public place or next time you are, look around at the other people around you. All of those people have their own lives, their own demons, own moments of happiness, own periods of sadness. I suppose what I am trying to say is that don't make hasty generalizations about people. "Don't judge a book by its cover" as much as in reality that is what people do, we can all attempt to make an effort. People want to be unique, be distinguished from the rest of society, we should give everyone that chance. Starting with people at school; people that have been rude to you, people who have leaned against you, or people that you've never talked to before. People are interesting; we're all the same yet so different at the same time. Be kind, be forgiving and be empathetic. Try not to be critical of others and overall be kind. Be the person you would want to be friends with, the kind of person that someone can always turn to in times of need, because what goes around comes around.

Weekly Crush //

>>one<<
Over the break, I was playing on my phone and browsing through the google play store for apps. Now I have always been the type of person that thinks books should only be on paper, no kindle, no nook, no ebook nonsense, but then I came across this book on the play store. There was a sample so I decided to check it out; if I liked it I might just go borrow it from the library. Once I finished the sample, I fell in love with the characters and decided that I couldn't wait to go to the library but I had to read it right away. There are multiple sites online where you can download books and read them on an electronic device, so I downloaded Because of Low. After I finished this book I couldn't get enough and began reading other books in the series. I am currently readying Sometimes it Lasts, Abbi Glines is pretty amazing. The books pretty much have characters with similar personalities, but it just gets to me every time. I highly suggest reading the book if you don't mind reading romantic stories.

This song >

 Rachel Platten is really cute and so energetic. This song is extremely optimistic and makes you smile when you listen to it; I suggest taking a listen when you're feeling down.

After reading a bunch of romantic books I decided to head in a different direction. I know that The Maze Runner movie is coming out in September and I am extremely excited. The cast is amazing; Dylan O'Brien, Ki Hong Lee, Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario are all starring in the film. Of course, I had to read the book before seeing the movie and the book is fantastic if I do say so myself; its Hunger Games meets Percy Jackson meets Lord of the Flies.

Someone buy me a dreamcatcher for my future car please.

Weekly Crush //

>>one<<


This song was on an episode of Revenge and I have to say it is very catchy and a little ominous. I feel like it would be a good song for a dance solo. It reminds me of my middle school and the dance team, Dance Infinia, that was pretty popular.

>>two<<

ASDLKJFA;LSKDJFA;LSKFDJ. Two words. Josh. Bowman. He's my new latest obsession of celebrity crushes; he plays Daniel on Revenge and I just want him and Emily to be together. In reality, Josh and Emily are together and they are so cute together that I wish in the show they would be together. Furthermore, this fine man is British. He's amazing, 'nuff said.

Now that I'm back in San Diego, I can indulge myself with some tropical fruits, including pineapple and guava; my favorite being the latter. Guava tastes really good with salt crushed with red pepper.

OMG YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM FOR THE VERONICA MARS MOVIE. I literally cannot contain my excitement. I can't wait to see how everyone turned out, and I can't believe Veronica is still with Piz, LoVe 4ever <3, haha inner teenage fangirl in me. I actually started crying while watching the trailer, because I was so overwhelmed with enthusiasm. Anyway, the movie comes out on March 14 and you can be sure that I will be at the first showing.

>>five<<


I've been obsessed with this song as well. Ever since Sarah Chung posted a short video of her sisters singing this song; it was so cute and I decided to check out the song. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'll probably just wait until it comes out on DVD cuz I'm lazy hehehe. I think my favorite part about the video/song is when she lets her hair down; it looks so luscious and beautiful SMILING FACE WITH HEART-SHAPED EYES.
