Organization DIYs ft. Anna pretending to know what she’s doing

oh look its me pretending to be organized

HELLO INTERNET WANDERERS!!!

So today I decided to pretend to be organized and share with you guys some organization DIYs/life hacks! Please ignore my pathetic attempt at taking artsy photos =) There isn’t really anything else to say so here are some super simple organization oriented life hacks and DIYs!

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

Ok so this first one is like a bulletin board except it’s not 😂😂 I have this thing where I stick post-its EVERYWHERE (more on that later) so I’ve started using just a piece of paper to stick them on and just placing the paper in a place where I’ll see it everyday. The one I’m currently using is just for reminders about events, due dates, and stuff like that. It was a random water-color I made a few years ago cuz I had like 5 minutes and was super bored and I saw it lying around and decided to use it for this! It’s currently up on the wall on top of my bedside table because then I’ll see it everyday when I wake up, go to sleep, and just anytime I need something from my table!

The other super nice thing about this DIY is that you can literally make it as simple or fancy as you want. You could use some cute paper, watercolor a piece of paper, just draw on it, or just use a plain piece of paper! I also think it would be cool to put some cute washi tape down on your wall to make a rectangle or some sort of area which you could then place post-its inside directly on the wall! Anyways this is just a random super easy DIY I’ve always had at home and I’ve found it super convenient and a great way to stay organized and on top of  things!img_2945-1

Alright so before I was kind of talking about having one place to put post-its with reminders on them but now I’m going to be sharing a life hack that is literally the complete opposite. hypocritical much Basically whenever I need to remember something, the night before I put a ton of post-its in places I will look in the next morning when I’m in a hurry. I’ve always assumed this is something everyone does but a lot of people had never thought of doing this before so I decided to mention this anyways. This is also great for when you’re in a rush in the morning and really need to remember something. If you couldn’t tell already, I LOVE POST-ITS! They’re just incredibly helpful when it comes to staying on top of things! 😄

I usually stick post-its on my iPad and phone since I put those in my bag right before I go to school so I’ll see any reminders on there. I also put them on my face wash and on the AC remote since those are other things I will look at every morning and post-its aren’t very hard to miss on those objects, especially if they are brightly colored. I also sometimes put reminders on my bedroom door, front door, refrigarator and other places like that but over time I’ve noticed that these reminders are a LOT easier to miss when they’re put in really vague places, especially if your in a hurry in the morning and aren’t stopping to carefully examine every door😂😂

I’ve been meaning to get a proper whiteboard for the longest time EVER but until then, I decided to try making a make-shift whiteboard. So a while ago I googled what surfaces whiteboard markers erase off of and realized that they also work on mirror and glass! I decided on using a huge mirror I have in my bathroom rather than using my completely glass balcony doors just because sometimes I have my curtains closed and I don’t want to have to open my curtains every single time I want to look at whatever I have on my “whiteboard”. I’ve currently just taken up half of the mirror with a list of goals, a to do list and some space for reminders, but I imagine you could use washi tape or just lines to draw out proper categories, a calendar, schedules or literally ANYTHING you want! If you’ve got any glassy/smooth surfaces in your house that are just sitting around,  I recommend you just google if that surface is erasable with whiteboard markers and if it is you could do a lot of cool things with it! Oh and I apologize in advance for the really crappy photos 😂😂

I just leave a plastic bag with 4 expo markers and a paper towel to erase with in one of my bathroom drawers and whenever I need to write something I can just pull it out for a second!

Ok so that is all I’ve got for you guys today! I hope you didn’t die of cringe from my extremely terrible pictures and that these DIYs/life hacks help you! I also recently read a post on Ilsa’s blog (A Whisper of Ink) about organizing your blogging life which I found SUPER HELPFUL and informational! I definitely recommend reading that since it is very great if you want to stop procrastinating and get your life together be #organized

Also, I just got back from vacation last night so if I can pull together enough photos, I will be posting a travel diary some time next month! I will also be leaving for a school trip not this Sunday but next Sunday so if I don’t have too many photos I’ll combine those trips and do one big travel diary! Idk why but I honestly just loovveeeee posts where I have a lot of pictures and I loved writing my Summer’s travel-ish diary so stay tuned for that! Before you leave, comment down below what the last song you listened to was! Mine was The A Team by Ed Sheeran which also my all time favorite sonnggg!!!!!!!! Anndd last thing, I recently gave my IRL friend who we are calling Sushi the URL to my blog so Sushi if you’re reading this hyelllooooo!!! Thank you to her and to my other friend Swan (my nicknames are amazing) for helping me choose between 33 identical crappy photos 😂😂

The Never Ending List of Fandom Struggles

When they move on but you weren’t ready to #Long Live Dani Snot on Fire. I still haven’t gotten over that tbh

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

So I realized I haven’t complained about anything wrote more of a humorous post in a while so here we are! Everything is kind of short though cuz my parents need this computer really badly and I had like 30 minutes to just kind of throw this together. I am writing this beforehand (it’s currently Sunday the 15th)  because we are going on vacation tomorrow and probably won’t be back until Saturday. So if we get back super late on Saturday I won’t be posting on Saturday and may just not post that weekend if I’m really tired or whatver. Idk, we’ll see. Anyways here are just a few of the fandom struggles that all fangirls/fanboys experience!

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

Spoilers

Spoilers are the actual death of all fangirls. Right before an episode comes out is the only time I will go internet-free, purely because I want to avoid all spoilers. But even worse than TV show spoilers, are book spoilers. I swear to god if you spoil a book for me, prepare. to. die.

giphy (8).gif

Being unproductive

Oh gosh it hurts to say this but if you’re in fandom, you’re probably not as productive as you could be. Instead of working you probably are:

  • freaking out over something that happened 30 bazillion years ago
  • daydreaming about something that probably won’t ever happen
  • binge watching/reading things
  • contemplating the fact that you have no life

 

Fictional Characters

Oh gosh. Where do I even begin. I cannot tell the difference between fiction and reality anymore. Literally the worst part of being in a fandom is that you get so freakin attached to fictional characters, and you’ve got to break it to yourself that they don’t exist. Oh and the faCt thAt yOU frEAkiN’ CAN’t GEt MArRiED.

giphy (10).gif

Anti-Social

Alright so I’m saying this is a struggle but let’s be real, there is nothing negative about this 😂😂 Truth is, I’d rather stay at home and read about people who don’t exist than come outside and socialize with people who do exist. When given the choice, I would rather be anti-social and sit on my bed in a unicorn onezie with a tub of ice cream and 20 books cuz let’s be honest, socializing is just so much W O R K.

 

Unenthusiastic Friends

For some insane reason, people often don’t agree with you when it comes to fandoms and shipping. like whatttt????? I’m just sitting here like how could anyone not love these adorable lil muffins but for some reason my “friends” are not very appreciative of muffins. like whyyyyy!?!?!??!?!?

 

giphy-downsized (1)

Fan fiction

Oh there are just so many struggles when it comes to fan fiction I don’t even know what to say. Some of the worst are when there are no fan fictions for your OTP cuz you’re that one weirdo and when you’re reading a really, really good fan fiction but then the author stops posting and you’ve just got to sit there and pretend you aren’t dying inside. wow that went deep

 

Moving On

When they move on from a part of their life/relationship/anything and you’re pretending to be ok but you’re not. LIKE WHY AM I MORE ATTACHED TO YOUR LIFE THAN YOU ARE!??!!!

giphy (11).gif

I hope you guys liked this post and could relate to it! I know this is kind of shabby but I’m in a rush right now and just wanted to get something scheduled so that it wasn’t like I was just leaving in the middle of the month again. Let me know if you want a part 2 to this post because there are so many more struggles and I haven’t even mentioned OTPs yet =)

My School Morning Routine AKA pretending to be a beauty blogger

Getting myself out of bed every morning at 5:30 is literally one of my greatest accomplishments 😂😂😂

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

Before we begin, sorry I haven’t posted in a while! I’ve had a really busy past week with lots of school work and didn’t really have much time to blog! But I’m back now so YAYYYYY! Anyways, I’m not a beauty blogger, incase you couldn’t tell. In fact, I’m pretty far from being one. That being said, I do love watching beauty guru videos and reading beauty bloggers’ posts. Some of my favorites, are room tours, hauls, and routines. I honestly don’t know why but I really just love reading/watching these types of things and just calming down as I live vicariously through your fashion sense since I clearly don’t have one.

On the other hand, I also love Liza/Lily type videos/posts and enjoy writing those as well. This blog is turning out to kind of be a mix of humorous/rant posts and beauty(ish) posts. While I was writing this though, I realized I can’t actually write anything without my sarcasm shining through at least a little bit so this is probably going to be a little different from your typical beauty guru post 😂😂 Not that I am a beauty guru. I’m just trying to make that point very clear. 😂😂 Anyways, today I thought I would share with you guys my school morning routine!

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

5:30 – 6:30  So I wake up at 5:30 every morning??!?? I’m literally just as surprised as you are😂 Anyways I wake up and do YOGA so that I can notice how inflexible I am. I try not to lie in shavasana right after I wake up cuz on several occasions I have fallen back asleep on my yoga mat while doing that pose😂😂 Anyways I practice yoga for half an hour most mornings and honestly, I recommend that everyone tries yoga even for like 10 minutes a week because it really helps you, especially with flexibility. I can guarantee you noticeable results in 2 months or less.  Gosh I sound like I TV commercial trying to sell you something

IMG_2756.JPG
ignore my pathetic attempts at taking artsy photos

6:00 – 6:30 After I practice yoga, I shower and get dressed because I’m the type of maniac who showers in the morning 😄 I usually pick out my outfit/random jumble of clothes the night before since I don’t trust myself not to spend 30 minutes deciding between two pairs of identical black leggings in the morning…..

6:30-6:40 So for these 10 minutes I do my hair and I’m usually running at least a couple of minutes late so I give myself 10 freaking minutes although I only use around 3 to do my hair. I honestly usually just comb my hair and pull it up into a pony tail because I have really thick wavy almost curly hair and putting it down would be such a pain. I don’t understand how people always leave their hair down like how are you not dying of heat right now??!!Brush

6:40-7:00 This is when I eat my breakfast and just kind of make sure I’ve got everything I need before I leave. My mom makes my breakfast since I have busy mornings no responsibility so I usually just eat whatever’s on the table and run to frantically get my shoes on and grab my violin at the last second.

Morning Routine

I usually leave the house at around 7 to 7:10 every morning and my school bus leaves at around 7:15. Some mornings I’ll wake up EVEN EARLIER what the hell is wrong with me if I’ve procrastinated a lot on my homework and need to get it done in the morning. And around 50% of the time I’m in a rush so I honestly don’t get how some people read and look at their social media in the morning. HOW?!? If I did that I would genuinely just end up staying in bed reading/browsing the internet for the rest of the day.

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

So this post seems kind of short and since I’m pretending to know about beauty and that type of ish today, you’re going to sit through 20 minutes of me talking about what I wore to the first school dance of the year. yay.

The theme this time was Night at the Beach (I know what the hell). The setup and everything looked super pretty since the whole area was decked out in fairy lights and beachy/mermaidy stuff but everyone was kind of confused on what to actually wear. A bunch of the girls in my grade were going to get all the boys to wear bikinis and shorts to rebel against the dress code while dressing for the theme but unfortunately one of the teachers shut it down 😂😂 So most girls wore a nice beach/flowy dress if they had one, a regular party dress, or just slightly formal casual clothes (what am i saying 😂😂)

So I planned on wearing a simple black dress with a denim jacket and my navy blue/black Levi’s shoes. It’s just a super comfortable outfit for me to dance plant myself in front of the food in. But then me and 3 of my other friends went to my friend’s house for around an hour before the dance to get ready/eat and then head to back to school. When we got to her house, we basically just turned her whole room into a shit storm of clothes. One of my friends had brought 15 FREAKIN OUTFIT CHOICES and my other friend had brought 5 or so and then we had my other friends’ whole closet since we were at her house. Long story short I ended up wearing one piece of clothing from everyone else 😂😂 I wore a gray tank top like thingy ma bob with full length black leggings and a denim jacket. The friend whose house we were at has an older brother who is a year older than us and 2 of his friends were over too, and at the very last second the boys were all screaming at us to hurry up and get in the car cause otherwise we were going to be late. Honestly, getting ready for the dance was more fun then the actual dance itself 😂😂

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

Alright so I hope you enjoyed this slightly different kind of post. I think we all just realized today that I would make a terrible beauty guru and that I should stick to just complaining about everything in life 😂 Also, did you notice the new graphics? Thank you so so much to Mirra from Colours Beyond Dreams for designing such a beautiful header and ending thingy ma jig. These were super inspiring and I’m now working on designing some of my own as well so in a while you may see another graphics change! Another really exciting thing, I told 3 of my IRL friends about my blog!I was kind of planning on never doing this because I like being anonymous on my blog, but I really needed help choosing between graphics and stuff like that so I asked 3 of my closest friends who we will call sushi, jellyfish, and swan to help me with my blog. I’ll try to get them to write some tags or challenges or just something with me cause I feel like you guys would really love them so I might be doing that in the near future. Oh and are you and introvert or an extrovert? Let me know in the comments below!!Anyways that is it for today and I will see you guys soon!

The Blogger Recognition Award!!! ^-^

yayyyyyy this is such an honor excuse to procrastinate on homework

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

So I just got nominated for the BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD!!!! Thank you to the wonderful Rain from The Withering for nominating me for this award! If you haven’t heard of her blog already, go check it out! It’s super cool and 100% Anna-approved. Which is apparently a thing now😂😂😂 So ya let’s just get started then!!! 😀

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

✨ Give a brief story of how your blog started. 

Alright well y’all about to be BORED. Basically, my humanities teacher last year who was great but unfortunately moved away over summer, kept encouraging me to start a blog cause he really liked my writing. So I did. End of story. 😂😂😂 But actually though, I started this blog in March or so but was really inconsistent like I would post 15 times one month and then disappear for three. So then in July I got my act together for a while and then left, and then last month I came back again and I’m still here (hopefully forever)! Literally my posting schedule on this blog was like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s relationship. Although I probably won’t stop blogging forever 😂😂

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

✨ Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers. 

uhhmmmm I feel like actually doing something for once so I’ll give you guys THREE pieces of advice 😄

Don’t get discouraged There are a lot of bloggers on here who get hundreds of followers after just a month or so of blogging, and then there’s me, with around 30 after 5+ months of blogging. Just because you’re getting success a lot slower than others, doesn’t mean you’re not good at blogging or that you have a terrible blog. Don’t feel discouraged by these types of things and give up. Keep interacting with other blogs and posting regularly and I’m sure you’ll get to your goal!

Interact– This has got to be one of the most important parts to blogging. Honestly, the amount of time you interact with other blogs/bloggers matters as much as the time and effort you put into your blog posts. Comment on posts and befriend bloggers, you’ll make a lot of great friends and you’ll most likely gain a few followers for your blog!

Post regularly– Don’t do what I did. Post regularly. If you have some sudden inspiration and write 50 blog posts in one day, great! Expect don’t post them all at once. Space them out and don’t just spontaneously leave the blogging community for months at a time. Your stats will definitely go down hill if you do that.

Alright so that is all I have for you guys today! I am not posting every Sunday now, but instead posting twice a week, probably on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I probably will end up breaking the schedule but shhhh, no one needs to know that 😉 Thank you again to the wonderful and amazing Rain for nominating me for this award!!! 😊 Oh and I don’t know if you saw but I’m asking a random question to you guys every time I post in order to get to know you better so today, comment down below whether you’re a dog or cat person. ❓🐶 🐱❓I’m definitely a dog person. I just feel like most cats want to scratch my eyeballs out and feast on my pain and misery 😂😂 No, I am not over reacting 😂😂

September Wrap Up! + MAJOR life updates

This is my first ever monthly wrap up sort of thing and YAYYY I’m super exciteddd!!! 😊

when you can’t think of an intro and have to just stall for a paragraph =) 

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

September just flew by! Two months of school are already over like WHAT!?! One quarter of after school activities and sports is already over and I’m just sitting here like SLOW. THE HELL DOWN. This school year is just going to go by so fast just like all the others and it’s such an overwhelming and melancholic feeling!

✨Anyways, here is my overview of  September!!! ✨

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

BLOGGING

I’ve got 23 followers so far thank you so much!!! I know these numbers sound pretty small but this means so much to me and you won’t believe how encouraging and motivating this is! ❤︎ 😊 ❤︎

My Stats (which I will make a humongous deal out of even though my numbers are tiny 😂) :

Views: 53

Visitors: 34

Likes: 14

Comments: 20

Mostly, I’m just really happy that I’ve started blogging again! I was really inconsistent with my posting through August and the beginning of September but I’m slowly starting to fall into a schedule of posting every week which is great! This month, I only posted twice but -again- I’m getting there =) Make sure you check out September’s posts!

Goal:

Get 30 followers by next month. I think if I keep posting regularly, I should be able to get there 😃

FAVORITES

Books: September wasn’t the best month for me when it came to books, but I did read a few good ones!

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.29.51 PM

The Song Of Achilles was probably my favorite book that I read this month. It was such a great take on the Iliad. This Greek myth tells the story of Patroclus and Achilles and the tragedy and injustice and love and just everything in their life and OMG IT WAS SOO GOODDDDDD!!!! 💓 Like I don’t even want to say anything else cause I’m afraid that I’ll give away the whole book ☺️ You should definitely check this out on GoodReads and read it. Or else. I will find you. And I will kill you. jk but actually though tell me if you’ve read this book so that we can (hopefully) fangirl over it together! 😄😄😄 Anyways, great book!!!!

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.37.54 PM.png

I was at a bookstore trying to get my friend a birthday present and ended up buying Girl Online for myself instead 😄 This was definitely more of a light read compared to The Song of Achilles, but I still loved it! I generally love Zoe Sugg but this just made me love her even more! Overall, I loved this book! 💖

I think I’m overusing the word love 😂😂😂

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.43.28 PM.png

Finding Audrey was another great book that somehow took a mental disorder and turned it into a more lighthearted subject – in a good way of course! 😀 This book was incredibly sweet, genuine, and hilarious and I really loved it! I recommend it to anyone who likes unicorns and sparkles. So basically everyone.

YouTube:

One of my friends showed me this YouTube series called Chicken Girls from Brat (this channel that posts web series) and I’ve been watching it this month! It’s great since the episodes are only 5-10 minutes long so it’s not like I’m wasting too much time on a 40 minute long Good Witch episode on Netflix (which btw, is great but like I DON’T HAVE THAT KIND OF TIME). So far there have only been 4 episodes and I believe they’re posted every Tuesday?? But ya here’s the first episode =)

Annie LeBlanc and Hayden Summerall (who actually act in Chicken Girls and were dating for a while I think) sang this cover to “Little Do You Know” by Alex and Sierra and I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT!!!! 💖💖

Another video I loved this month was Ryan Higa’s The Truth Behind Trump video. His conspiracy theories are HILARIOUS =)

I don’t even know what to say about this. Danny boy has blessed us all with another video 😂😂

I discovered Kurt Hugo Schneider a few months ago and have been LOVING his creative covers ever since! This one is a mashup of 20 Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift songs!

Ok I’m not even going to try and choose a Superwoman or Liza video. Like I physically can’t.

ACHIEVMENTS

Alright so I’m just going to be reflecting on my goals from a list I made a while ago!

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

  • Get 30 followers on my blog
  • Read 20 books in October (this month I read 13) 📚
  • Post 5 times
  • Go to table tennis
  • Play the Gavotte at the original speed 🎻
  • Play through the whole Lady Gaga thing
  • Have a total of 10 pages on any story ✏

NEWS

I’M MOVING!  I’m going to be moving back to my old home either this December or next summer and although I will get to see my old friends, to be honest, I’m really sad since I’M GOING TO MISS MY FRIENDS HERE SOO MUCHHHH! 😞 I’ve kind of drifted away from all of my old friends and I’ve heard that it’s harder to step back into an old friend circle than go into a completely new one so I’m kind of nervous and sad but I’ve still got a lot of time and I’m sure everything will sort itself out. 💖

SCHOOL TRIP! Every year, my school has a trip that each grade goes on. Last year, we got to bathe elephants, go on hikes, visit some rural villages, and a bunch of other stuff. This year, we’re going to be ziplining over this huge river, going on day long hikes, camping by this river, and SO MUCH MORE! It’s a week long trip and I’m SO EXCITED! 😀 There’s no technology allowed on the trip and we will be going on a train to the place, which is 7-8 hours away. I won’t be able to post during that trip but it’s towards the end of October  and I’ll try and schedule some posts for when I’m gone! I’m slightly nervous but this trip is literally the highlight of the whole year. You form so many new friendships and create so many new memories and experiences!💖 💖💖 Anyhoo, I will be posting about what I’m taking with me and all that, and when I get back, I’ll use some of the pictures our teachers take and make another travel diary out of it!

SPIRIT WEEK! Spirit week is a huge deal in my school (and most other American schools 😂😂). This week, we’re hosting the first sports meet thing and schools from around the country will be coming to ours to compete in a soccer tournament. This Friday will be our school spirit day with huge pep rallies and all, and then the following week will be spirit week with Pajama Day, Twin Day, etc. I’m super excited about that!!

TABLE TENNIS! I never thought I’d say this. So my school recently had Parent Teacher Conferences and my PE teacher was telling me and my mom how I’m in the top 4 strongest girls in our PE class (I honestly don’t know 😂😂). I’m not sure if this is because I’m strong or because I have a really weak PE class. So my PE teacher also happens to be the coach of the table tennis team which competes with the other schools in the country. (This weekend we’re competing in soccer at our school, but in December, there will be a tournament for table tennis and badminton in another school.) And somehow, she and my mom think it’ll be a great idea for me to try out for the team ?? 😂 So ya I guess I’m doing table tennis now 😂

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 11.18.36 AM

So that is it for today! Let me know if you liked this longer post and what your favorite books/videos this month were! Also, what’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?🍨Mine’s peanut butter fudge! I realized I barely know you guys so now every time I post, I’m going to be asking an EXTREMELY random question! 😄

The Struggles of Having Glasses – Part 2

I LITERALLY ALMOST TURNED BLIND.

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

Before I even begin, LIFE UPDATE: I went to that party thing I was telling you guys about in last Sunday’s post and omg it was so worth going even though I felt deaf and blind and couldn’t see color properly for an hour afterwards 😂😂😂 The party was happening on my friend’s rooftop and the DJ was legit blasting music so that you could hear it from around a block away. There were also huge lights shining everywhere into everyones faces and there was just light EVERYWHERE. It was crazy and I (surprisingly) knew around half the people there so it wasn’t too bad. The best part was probably when they played It’s Everyday Bro and literally everyone started screaming the lyrics to it. For some unknown reason, I know the lyrics too which I hadn’t actually realized until they played the song 😂😂 So ya overall I had a great time and didn’t die of awkwardness so YAY ME!

Anyways, a while before this, some unfortunate events happened with my glasses and I realized that a part 2 to my original The Struggles of Having Glasses post was needed so here we are! If you haven’t read the first part already, GO DO THAT NOW. OR YOU WILL REGRET IT. =) On that note, here are some more struggles you will face if you have glasses!

Humidity

This has got to be one of tHe mOST AnNoyINg ThiNGS EvER.  I live in a very humid place. And every single time I step outside from an AC car or room or building, my glasses fog up. This is especially a problem when I’m walking out of a mall or something into the crazy traffic and I can’t see a single thing because my glasses have decided to fog up. Someone help.

Rain

This is a lot like the humidity problem, except this time, it’s the rain. I love rain. I love running in the rain, swimming in the rain, walking in the rain; I love practically EVERYTHING about rain. Only problem is that the raindrops fall on my glasses, again, practically blinding me. So if you ever meet me IRL and it’s raining, my head is going to be facing directly downwards in order to avoid getting water on them 😂😂

3D Glasses

Whenever I go to the movies to see something 3D, and I need to put those glasses on top of my regular ones 😂 I look like such an idiot omg someone help 😂😂

I need your shirt

^– Yup I couldn’t think of anything else to call this ^-^. But it’s pretty much exactly what it says. The number of times I have asked people for their shirt because I’m not wearing the right type of fabric to clean my glasses with is slightly concerning. Whenever my glasses get wet or fogged up or even just blurry for that matter, I have to go looking for the perfect type of shirt because I’m too lazy to carry around a case and proper fabric with me. Often times, I’m not wearing the right type of shirt in which case the person sitting next to me will stare at me like I’m a physcopath I am one btw as I use the edge of their shirt to clean my glasses 😂

Looselessnessless idk what im doing anymore ^-^

When I’m in PE and planking or doing pushups or just anywhere where I’m in a situation looking down, my glasses will start to fall off. And I’m pretty sure this only happens cuz the side of my glasses are loose and I need to fix them or whatever, but IT’S SO ANNOYING.

Eye-Stabbing

Alright children. Sit yourselves down cuz it’s freakin’ story time with Anna and her dysfunctional glasses. Essentailly, my glasses almost stabbed my eye out. And no, I’m not exagarating. Basically I was in PE -of course- and me and this other dude on my team who we will call Dora, were on defense. This is other dude, called Bob from the other team, was running into our territory so me and Dora started sprinting as in HARDCORE DONT YOU DARE TRY AND OVERTHROW OUR EMPIRE BOB sprinting and we’re both closing in on Bob from 2 different angles. I’m preparing myself to veer right as soon as we tag Bob and then Dora can also veer left and everything will be fine, right? No. Turns out, I calculated wrong and after we got Bob, Dora and I ended up banging the sides of our heads together. Now when that happened, my glasses somehow managed to dig into my head, right underneath my eyebrow and a little above my eye. But I didn’t know that at the time so I sat down for 3 seconds, saw that Dora was an in idiot and couldn’t handle defense on his own, and got up to go join the game again. After we lost  (miserably) my best friend comes up to me to ask if I’m ok and kind of just stares at me for a second before saying, “Your bleeding.” Obviously, I thought she was joking cuz those are the types of friends I have but she seemed pretty serious so I went to look in the mirror and yup, I’m bleeding. As in almost my entire eyebrow is covered in blood and now it’s starting to trickle onto my eyelid. I don’t understand how no one noticed this while we were wrapping up the game, but long story short, my glasses had made a deep cut into my skin and if it had been a tiny bit deeper, I would have needed stitches. And if my glasses had cut me a little bit lower, I would have had some serious eye damage. So yes, my glasses are not just annoying, they are out to freakin’ kill me.

Hopefully, you guys have all learnt from my mistakes and will stay away from glasses =) Sooo that’s pretty much it for today. I’ve realized that posting every Sunday and Thursday is a tad bit ambitious right now since I’m so incredibly lazy I have a lot of stuff going on at the moment, but I am trying to post every Sunday!

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

Here I am, writing a blog post after around a month when I have a major lab report due the next morning. Typical. BUT YES, I am back because apparently I have decided to stop procrastinating writing a blog post so that I can proceed to procrastinate on my school work. 

So ya let’s talk about me while I pretend that you guys care! I seriously need to tone down the sarcasm 😂 Oh and also I’m trying (and failing) at the whole changing font size thing which, by the way, IS SO CONFUSING HOW DO PEOPLE DO THIS? So ya please bear with me while I experiment with this =)


 VITAL STATS…

Name: Anna

Nicknames: Well Anna is my nickname and I’m not giving away my real name cuz like middle aged men stalking innocent (i’m innocent lol ya right) children on the internet and all

APPEARANCE…

Hair color: Black.

Hair length: I have a U-cut or whatever so near the front it reaches a little longer than my shoulders but in the back it goes half way down my back.

Eye color: Dark brown. People are always like nope you have black eyes and that’s what is says on my passport and all but theoretically, I don’t think anyone can actually have black eyes. Like HOW?

Best feature: Ok I’m not good with this type of stuff….Like what I am supposed to say? I really like my face??

Braces: No, but I have had my expander and was supposed to get braces last year but then we moved. When I move back to my old home, I’m gonna get braces UGHHHH

Best Friend: Well my next door neighbor back in my first home was probs my best friend. After kindergarden, we ended up going to different schools and then 2 years later I also moved away; but she’s still one of my best friends and I do see her every 2 years or so =)

Sport: SWIMMINGGGG. I’ve always lovveeeddd swimming. After that I went to like this soccer camp thing with my best friend (who I mentioned above) in the summer after kindergarden but I never really kept with that. All I remember from soccer camp is running around in the rain, eating popscicles, and having buckets of ice water dumped on our heads when it got super hot. I literally don’t remmeber anything about the actual soccer part 😂😂😂

Concert: I’ve been to a few like tiny singing concerts and like piano recitals and all that but my first REAL concert like actual thing was probably TATINOF aka The Amazing Tour Is Not on Fire.

Oh and my favorite ice cream shop (I had to) has probably got to be this place called Tin Pot Creamery. They have THE BEST peanut butter fudge icecream. And in the end they put these 2 adorable little candy eyes on your icecream and use a spoon to make a little mouth. literal heaven. like i cant even. i need to stop now ok aghhhh.

THIS IS LEGIT WHAT THEIR ICE CREAM LOOKS LIKE OMG ITS SO CUTEEEEE

Shop: So in my old city, there would be this competition every Halloween where almost every store in downtown would let kids come in and paint on their windows, and then the city would choose it’s favorites. So one year, I got a window at this place called Gourmet Works which is this AMAZINGGGG chocolate shop and literally every time I go there, the shop owner gives me and my friends free chocolate! Like best store every amirite? But they also have really pretty, festive things every season that somehow all have to do with chocolate and I looveee it theereeeee.

giphy-downsized (2).gif

Books: bye

giphy-downsized (3).gif

Shoes: I really don’t think about this stuff much 😂

Feeling: Like I should go do my work before it’s too late. Also slightly concerned that people will stalk me by googling the stores I just mentioned. please don’t kill me =)

Single or Taken: Oh. OH. I’VE BEEN WANTING TO USE THIS PICTURE FOREVERRR. This is starting to get slightly concerning.

Screen Shot 2017-09-17 at 11.52.05 AM.png

Eating: I’m not eating anything right now. Although I’d like to be….

FUTURE…

Want children: I think so =)

Want to be married: Yuppppp

Where you want to live: I’m not really sure. I think I want to move around though….

DO YOU BELIEVE IN…

God: Ya. My answers are just getting shorter and shorter 😂

Miracles: I’m not really sure…..

Ghosts: Idk..

Aliens: They probably exist, but our views about them are probably wrong…

Yourself: Before I didn’t but I guess I’m getting better at that….(These quesetions are starting to get to be too much work noooo i want to go back to talking about my favorite ice cream placessss😂)


I TAG…

Again, I wasn’t tagged by anybody so everyone reading this can do it I guess?? I recommend you save it until you want to procrastinate on doing something else and then use this as an excuse to not do work. *cough cough*

I found this on @awkwardaris’ blog so make sure you go follow her if you aren’t already! And I am sorry for dissappearing for a month (or 2) and then coming back with a pretty long and (slightly boring) blog post but I am working on getting back into a routine of posting every Sunday and Thursday =)

Oh and PS, I’m doing some of my goal thingys from my 2017 School Year Goals and actually going to a leadership seminar and going to someone’s birthday party. Like obviously I go to my friends’ houses all the time but this is a huge-ish party (around 50 people are going) and most of them are a year older than me. I think I’m only going cause one of my best friends will be there but like still.

Oh and did I mention it’s a dance? *GASP* I don’t know why I thought this was going to be a good idea….. So ya this weekend I’m going to be either really bored and traumatized and awkward or having a lot of fun =) Will let you guys know how it goes!

‘kay byeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

2017 School Year Goals

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

As you may or may not know, my school year has recently started, which calls for a list of goals. I loovvveeee seeing how much I progress through the course of a year through goals. I also loovvveeee lists. So naturally, I decided to make a list of goals =). This is basically just for me so that I can come back to this in June and hopefully be able to say that I achieved all of these and didn’t just spend the year sitting in front of my computer watching Netflix =) 

Academic Goals

  • Write for 90 minutes a week.
  • Read 100 books by December (I’ve got 34 to go)
  • Read some other genres (poetry, non fiction, etc.)
  • Do at least 30 minutes of IXL a week
  • Be able to write a basic story in French
  • Make the swim team (or at least try out without chickening out of it)
  • Try to make the Vienna travel team for Strings
  • Learn vibrato on the violin
  • Practice violin for at least 30 minutes every day

Other Goals

  • Do a head stand and other balancing poses in yoga
  • Practice yoga for 20 (ish) minutes every morning
  • Make 3 things at sewing
  • Go to the after school swim practice for at least a month
  • Go to every leadership seminar (Yes. Even if they’re incredibly boring.)
  • Go to someone’s birthday party even if there are people there you don’t know (I know this sounds really weird, but I seriously can’t be the only one who will not go somewhere just because some popular people will be there, too)
  • Go to every dance there is (And actually dance. Do not just plant yourself in front of the movie)
  • Only watch YouTube if you genuinely like the video. Don’t watch just because you’re bored.
  • Post on blog every Sunday and Thursday

 

That should be it for now! I’ll revisit this in December just to set some new goals and check on how many of them I’ve accomplished so far! Sorry if this post was a little boring, it was just so that I can have a record of these things!

The Stages of Shipping

I just realized how quickly this escalates 😂😂😂

Hello, Internet Wanderers!

Shipping. “A verb used to describe the action of wishing for two people to enter a relationship (whether romantic or occasionally platonic) in books, movies, tv shows or real life……” -Urban Dictionary. Aka, shipping is a never ending spiral that’s basically the death of all fangirls.

You see, shipping is often not voluntary. It starts off with an ‘Oh that’s a cute picture of those two’ and a while later you’ll find yourself screaming through a computer screen at 2 middle-aged men, telling them to just freaking get married already while sobbing and eating handfuls of chocolate. Oh and it’s even worse when you’re shipping fictional characters, whose lives and future children you are SO attached to. Why be a social human bean when you can cry about how you’re fictional ships have no hope for coming true because the people dOn’T fReAkIn’ ExIST! So folks, here are some of the different stages of shipping, which I’m sure ALL fangirls can relate too =)

  1. That’s cute                                                                                                                                     This is when you first start to notice that this new ship is kinda sorta cute. You’re not against it, but you don’t really care either. Run now, before you even get involved!                          
  2. Yeah I can see it…                                                                                                                        Now you’re starting to see more evidence why this ship is real. You get why some people ship it so bad. RUN. IT’S STILL NOT TOO LATE.                                                         giphy (3).gif
  3. Ship                                                                                                                                                  You ship it and you do wish it was real. You’re not too crazy obssesed with these people but you’re starting to be the person to point out some obvious evidence that this ship is real.
  4. Shippity ship ship ship                                                                                                              Aaannndd it’s officially too late to turn back. You’re following several shipping accounts on social media and read a considerable amount of fanfiction every day. The idea of these two people being in a relationship makes you pretty happy.              giphy.gif
  5. otP oTp OTp OTPPPPP                                                                                                                You’re feeds now solely consist of evidence that you’re ship is real. You read (not to mention write) at least an hour of fanfiction every day. No one else can even look at these two people without you getting upset that you’re OTP is getting off track. You LOVE the idea of these two people being in a relationship.
  6. I sHip iT sO BAdddDdDDDDD                                                                                                  You’re starting to realize how much you ship it. You’re OBSESSED with this ship, it’s all you can think about. You’re also turning into a detective, pointing out EXTREMELY detailed reasons why you’re ship IS REAL.                                                      giphy (2).gif
  7. *curls up in corner crying* WHHYYYYYYY                                                                         I mean, self explanatory much 😂😂😂

Aaaaannnnnnddddd ya! After writing this it became clear to me how quickly this escalates 😂 Also, I was googling (is that a word!?!) shipping and pastel fangirl and stuff like that and literally all that popped up was Pastel Phan edits 😂 I’m laughing too hard right now 😂

Random Things That Happened Over SUMMER 2017

The summer when I discovered my abnormal relationship with monkeys. **All of these pictures are mine**

HELLO, INTERNET WANDERERS!

So my first week of school is officially now over and I realized I’ve been neglecting you guys for a while now =) Hopefully, once everything settles down I’ll start posting regularly, and by regularly I mean once or twice a week. I’ll probably post every Sunday and Thursday, or something like that. Anyways, today I decided to write something about my summer, just to kind of give it closure and all. So for the next week or so, I’m going to be writing about my summer and my school year goals, mostly just for me so that I can have a record of these things and keep track of my goals. Aaannnddd ya, without further ado, here are some (extremely) random things that happened over my SUMMER 2017!!!
