life lessons from my history teacher

Today, history class was about something bigger than just history. Today, my teacher was doing straight up life lessons. It began with a teaching about romanticism in art and then became a lesson on being Romantic. Here are 10 things that I learned:
  1. Love is not listening to logic
  2. love is being willing to die for someone else even when that doesn't make sense
  3. everything else is lust or a crush or going to turn into something more
  4. Roses are absolutely cliched... but if that's what she likes, then that's what you get her
  5. Its about the individual (that one might have been about the artwork... it's unclear)
  6. make sure she/he knows that you love them
  7. love is supposed to make you stupid.
  8. you need to really know each other... and don't worry, you won't run out of convos to have
  9. most 10th grade boys don't get their girlfriends flowers. you are a sweetheart if you do
  10. She is always right. the woman is 'the man of the houe'. always
He told us this and many more life lessons much more profoundly and beautifully than I ever could. If you chose to soak up the right things, high school becomes much more meaningful.

happy, happy, and a few pep talks

Well... first, I must wish you a happy (belated) valentines day: that wonderful time of the year when one is either extremely happy and hopelessly romantic or sad and depressed, wondering why they are still currently single... or perhaps they are both (aren't we all hopeless romantics at heart?)

 If you are of the sad and depressed variety (which far too many people are), don't worry. The ONE will come along and sweep you off your feet, but sometimes, we must be patient with love. Sometimes prince charming gets lost on his way and (because most boys have that macho factor) refuses to ask for directions. But he'll get there eventually. My favorite quote is: "Stop waiting for prince charming. Get up and find him.The poor idiot may be stuck in a tree or something." So go out there and be your beautiful self, and dont forget to look in every tree... because love is out there waiting to fall (perhaps literally)  just for you!

Sorry, but we all need the prince charming talk at some point in our lives and i happen to be a true believer in your happiness (and in love). thus. the pep talk.

In addition to wishing you a happy belated valentines day, i must also wish all you Americans a very happy presidents day and as i learned here a happy family day. and now, another one of my very favorite (presidential) pep talks. From Kid president to you:


so lets dance.

so this is the shoe that i'm in love with...

hullo there!

It seems that I am unable to stay away from the blogging world for very long. I had stopped writing  on my old blog because I was no longer home schooled...but I needed somewhere for my creative juices to go (because they most certainly aren't activated nearly enough in high school).
  So, long story short, I'm back!
I suppose I should begin by warning you that I really don't have that I really don't have very much time for blogging. That said, I will do my best to keep you entertained with the stories of my life.
  Can't wait to continue writing!
