UGH THIS SET IS A HOT MESS.
For TB, we had to make a set based on our dream destination.
Truth be told, I don't have a specific city or destination, but I might as well go with the overused one anyways: Paris.
Because I'm taking French. And because it seems like a very culturally rich city with many sights.
You wanna know what's ironic about this?
I actually hate cities.
I got it from my dad. We both hate being in the city. My best friend, Genna, on the other hand, LOVES the city. Her eyes lit up when we took her to NYC.
I was gonna make an art set, but then I decided I didn't feel like it.
It started out well... I had the tank top, the pants, the earrings, and the shoes. It looked like something I would envision someone in Paris wearing-something kind of rocker chic, right? But then I needed something over the tank top, so I opted for a crop top, but I couldn't find any that seemed right. So then I chose this oversized shirt, but I think it ruins it.
And then I was going to try to look for a DECENT picture of Paris with lights, to try and match the gold on the earrings and tank, but then I ended up with a brown color scheme. I actually love the choices of pictures-most of them were clipped by Lexie (@division).
Although one of the pictures isn't. There's one that was taken with bars running across it, and it faces a building (on the right side, one of the bottom pictures). The girl that took it is such an amazing photographer. Her Tumblr: red-eyed.tumblr.com
Her name's Ellie, and I think she's a sophomore in high school. She's so sweet and pretty smart and interesting as well. Her Tumblr features only her photography, and besides @obliviate, she's my favorite photographer. I've had the chance to talk to her, when I posted her picture on my Tumblr, it got a ton of notes, and she started getting more popular. I haven't talked to her in a while, but you should really check her blog out.
Ugh. I feel bored.
And now I'm wishing I could get extensions. Again, my mom said that she was fine with it, but I had to pay for it (which I don't have much money, due to the fact that I used it all to pay for lunch, because I didn't tell my parents about my lunch money running out). Do you think I could pull off purple, blue, and green clip-on extensions?
I have to find a poem for English class because in a few weeks, we have to do this class competition where we memorize poems and recite it in front of the class. Then, the winner goes to the school competition, and the winner of that goes to regional, state, national competition.
Hell, I'm just hoping to get an A on this damn thing. I hate public speaking and memorization.
I kind of wish that I'd get some response from Michael, and I'm hoping that he actually read it.
He probably didn't. He probably doesn't even know what it was all about.
Is it so wrong that I'm getting a bit of an ego boost, thinking that Tyler might like me?
Is it? Because now, I feel a little bit guilty that I'm getting an ego boost. I mean, this, to me, just seems so self-centered and egotistical! I've always hated people like that, and now I'm becoming one of them!
Oh, well. At least I can't say I hate myself for being a hypocrite. Which I realize that I am. And will not change.
On a completely different tangent, I'm trying to figure out with my rising sign is. Yes, I'm referring to astrology. My chart isn't as accurate as I thought. At first, I thought it was a Virgo moon and a Leo rising, but now it might be either Virgo moon/Libra rising or Leo moon/Aries rising. Miranda, the more astrologically educated of us two, definitely thinks that it's Virgo/Libra, but whenever I use an online chart service, it comes out in either Leo/Aries or Leo/Taurus (it's probably not Taurus, so the birth time my mom gave me was probably off when she said that).
So my rising sign has gone from Leo to Libra to Aries. Personally, I think I fit more of the Aries description at this point. The Leo moon confuses me, because I'm more of a Virgo moon than anything. But if that were true, then it'd have to be Taurus rising, and that's just not possible because I seem nothing like that.
Miranda strongly thinks that I have little to no Aries influence, and that it's Libra, but again, it doesn't fit.
I know that no one really can tell, but if you had to read the descriptions of the rising signs, would you be able to tell me which one I seem more like?
Aries rising: http://www.elbertwade.com/page98.html (read the general overview, then skip to the bottom paragraph, where it says third decan or something about the Sagittarius decan, since that's the most likely description)
Leo moon: http://www.alwaysastrology.com/leo-moon.html
Libra rising: http://www.elbertwade.com/page104.html (read the general overview, then skip to the third paragraph, where it says third decan or something about the Gemini decan)
Virgo moon: http://www.alwaysastrology.com/virgo-moon.html
Whatever it is, at least I know I have a masculine rising sign.
Oh, and can you also read the physical description of the links and tell me which one I look more like: Aries or Libra?
I know that most of you don't really take astrology very seriously. Personally, it's just a hobby of mine, but I do use it to a good extent and believe that it can be pretty accurate to some degree. However, one of the biggest flaws is that it uses general and vague traits/characteristics. Many have noticed that when they do, people read the words and adjust them to their lifestyle, you know?
Still, this is why I always ask when people's birthdays are. Most of them think I just have a thing for birthdays, but I'm actually doing their Sun sign. Of course, there are so many aspects to astrology that are so complicated.
Miranda is so much better at this than I am, but she's got more experience. So usually, whenever I make a guess at someone's placement of a planet, I have to consult her just to make sure I'm not way off. For example, recently, I've been guessing at Michael and Tyler's rising signs. I'm extremely new to this, but Miranda actually agrees with me about most of my judgments. Between the two of us, we think that Michael has a Taurus moon/Pisces rising, and we know Tyler's got a Sagittarius moon, but we're not sure about the rising-probably Gemini or Aries or something.
I'm pretty glad that I have an astrology buddy.
On another random tangent, I remember that at lunch this week, Matt was having everyone guess what color his eyes were. He said that everyone always got it wrong on their first try. So I said okay, I'd look. And I looked straight into his eyes.
It's a little disconcerting to look straight into the eyes of someone you still have feelings for, but I did. I thought they were green. Nope. Blue. They looked really green, though...
Have I mentioned that I have a thing for guys with either glasses, freckles, and/or blue or green eyes, or a combo of either?
He's probably the only guy I've ever liked that has all three of those qualities, physically speaking.
At least we're still friends and it's not awkward between us and I'm glad for that.
I don't know if my friends know this, since I'm kind of weird on the outside, especially to the guys (but really Matt) because I smack and hit them a lot, but I really appreciate all of them. Even when I punch them or push them (not hard, since I can't), I still care about them. That's just my way of showing it to my guy friends (and to most friends in general). I wish I could be gentler, but that's just me, you know?
On another tangent, I went book shopping, and I got Paper Towns and Will Grayson, Will Grayson, both books by John Green. I've wanted these books ever since I finished Looking for Alaska. I have to give one of these to Genna for a Christmas gift, though.
I got Miranda the first book in the Mortal Instruments series because she already read Clockwork Angels, the first in the Infernal Devices series, but she told me she had asked her relatives for that same book. Oh, well. Hopefully, they'll get her the other books.
All right, I'm done with notes.
