Layout creds – the one and only super talented and magnificent now-sixteen year old @istylista! Happy super late birthday again, Ella!
Ahh hi guys! I’ve missed you! I hope you all had a very wonderful Christmas/Hanukah/Kwanzaa/holiday and I hope you had a magical New Year’s Eve and your New Year’s Day was fantastic! I love you all so much and the past year, in which I got super-active on Poly and made so many amazing online friends (and even got to meet two in person!) and really heightened my love for creative fashion (aka more than jeans and GAP jackets) and roleplaying. Thank you all for making my Poly experience so great, especially those tagged in the comments;)
Anyways I have SO much to tell you guys because honestly my Poly blogs are like my diary. I love venting and just talking about life because you’re all so understanding and perfect. SO SO SO much to tell you though, and this is going to be unbelievably obnoxiously long, so I’m going to break into chapters of sorts: The Cruise Vacation, The Life/Random Bloggy, and the New Year’s Hopes. I’ll probably throw in some random things in here or there. HAHAH I’m so excited, I’ve been dying to tell y’all this stuff for like two weeks now!
The Vacation –
AHHHH MY CRUISE! First big, commercial cruise I’ve been on and boy was it an experience!
The first day, we had to board the ship in New Orleans, which is one of my favorite cities, and meet up with my aunt and uncle who are Canadian and hilarious. It was a lot of us going – me, my mom, dad, uncle, aunt, and grandmother, and yeah. Family vacay!
Well, we met up with them and boarded the ship, The NCL Norwegian Star, which was awe-inspiring and just beautiful. SO much to do – a sports court, Teen Club, great dining, pretty views, a gym, a spa, an amazing lobby lounge with great LIVE smooth jazz, and AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING shows in the theatre and bar lounge. And I MET SO MANY GREAT PEOPLE JUST SERIOUSLY THOUGH. But I’ll get to that later;)
The first stop was Costa Maya, Mexico and it was beautiful beautiful beautiful. We booked a Mayan ruin, beach, and Mexican lunch tour and it was amazing and so fun. It’s really cool to see such old history. And Mexican beaches > any other beach. Clearest water, whitest sand, and amazing pina coladas:)
Our second stop was BELIZE BELIZE BELIZE! It was UNBELIEZEABLE! Haha we took a little tour around the city and then headed to this country club of sorts with an amazing lagoon.
Third stop, Roatan, Honduras, which was absolutely gorgeous and such a pretty little port! The beach was pretty nice but there was a lot of trash in the water :( aw but it was still so great. I got to parasail! Amazing experience, and it wasn’t scary at all #yolo :)
Final stop, Cozumelll! Totally my favorite port. Such great shopping!
Ahh and the times on the ship aw man they were great. The shows…Such talented performers and some PEOPLE FROM THE SECOND CITY WERE THERE OMG AND DAVID NASTER AND MARIA AN DMITRY AKA THESE AMAZING ACROBATS FROM THE RUSSIAN BALLET AND LIKE ALL THESE AMAZING SHOWS AKJKSDFJDKASFJAKDS AND THE MURDER LUNCH THEATER WITH THE SECOND CITY ONE OF THEM PICKED UP MY LIP GLOSS I FREAKED OUT AHH :) as you can tell I was excited
The Teen Club was so fun and I made a lot of great friends from all these different places including the U.S. and Canada and AUSTRALIAA ahh we watched TDKR and The Avengers and played air hockey and just plain talked and ate ice cream :) I really miss Hannah Banana and Mitchell, who were uh dating but oh well they weren’t awkward they were wonderful and I miss them. I just miss that whole dang cruise. Especially the eating and the entertainment and everything.
Just great. Oh and I met a boy :) Lathan hehehe
But the cruise was perfection, lots of fun, and I wouldn’t trade that week for the world;)
The Life/Random Blog –
Well gosh dang that took forever ^ Anyway haha how were your holidays again y’all? :) What did you get? Did it snow? :) I would looove to hear! No snow here unfortunately ;(
My New Year was pretty nice. I stayed up to watch the ball drop, posted a few photos on Instagram, text my friends, and wrapped the night up with a Project Runway episode I hadn’t watched yet. A very quiet night but the perfect welcome to a new year.
I don’t want to go back to school. I just don’t. School is a place of deadlines and stress and drama and still I love it but after two weeks of relaxation, who wants to face that again, right? :(
I am obsessed with the movie New Year’s Eve ahhh the critic reviews make me sad but it’s such a cute little movie and Lea Michele’s freaking cover of Auld Lang Syne…#dead.
LES MIZ THIS WEEKEENDDDDDD AHHHHH I DREAMED A DREAM OF TIMES GONE BY WHEN HOPE WAS HIGH AND LIFE WORTH LIVINGGGGG I’m learning to play that on the piano and it sounds so nice I’m so excited to see all my favorite celebrities in this movie aw haha. That reminds me of something funny I read on tumblr: “If Anne Hath a will, Anne Hath a way.” Haha
Let’s all wish @luxecouture good luck in finding the guy of her dreams this year guys!
I want want want a fur vest and I want to wear it with black pants. How glamorousssss
#obsessed with Pinterest! Follow me – @safaxox
Meh what else… haha I love to bore y’all :) Oh yeahh Kim K’s having a baby…meh that’s just going to be a lot of unnecessary TV trash in the next few months.
Got my nails painted this amazing reddish with a touch of coral color!
I want to be little again. What a weird wish, but I do…
This blog is so unorganized.
Hhaha time to move on
New Year’s Hopes
Well 2012 has been a strange, crazy year. I did so much and regretted so much. Highlights: Saw One Direction. Met Tay and D. Won Student of the Year. Made so many sweet friends. Had a great summer. Survived the end of the world;) So so so much. Regrets: Made so many of my friends mad. Felt like a terrible person so many times. I really wish I could’ve been a better person this year but I think it was good nonetheless:)
This year I want to:
1. Eat healthier
2. Be a better friend
3. Not care so much about people who don’t care about me
4. Stop caring if people don’t like me
5. Make more friends
6. Keep up my 4.0 average (all my life)
7. Lower my expectations
8. Be more responsible
9. Listen to my parents more
10. MANAGE MY TIME BETTER (SAY NO TO PROCRASTINATION)
11. Sneak into 1D’S 2013 Tour;)
12. Live and have fun, worry free and carefree, but still balance a good academic/school life!
Ahh hope you all are going to have a great new year and I love you all so much! <3 Thanks for putting up with meee! <33 xxSafa
