:/ did you get better thab a d in chem? :
Every end of the semester. It’s annoying. You either see people bragging about getting a 4.0 or people complaining and looking for sympathy. Feel free to tell your friends and family directly. But Facebook “friends” are often acquaintances who really don’t care.
I don’t really like social media. People give too much information in general. It’s so hard not to use it, though, because everyone else does. Sigh.
I’m trying to read a 40-page chapter in my psych book because I’m taking an online class… And I just can’t focus. I’m trying so hard. It’s not necessarily external distractions, either (though it’s nice when my mom stops talking on the phone or to herself in the room). Like, this new song I listened to the other day popped in my head. Amongst other random thoughts. Or even just a mental distraction that I can’t identify as anything… Maybe just “fuzzy”. Hard to explain. Neural circuits just running arbitrarily?
I’m just happy my appointment is tomorrow. I don’t really want more medication. But it’s impossible to function as a scholar like this. And that alone makes me a bit depressed.
I just want a solution.
Not sure if I’ll fill it any time soon. I just need to relax and chill. Read books. Not stare at a screen. Get some sleep. But I will be back.
I think Drew and I are gonna do DDP Yoga together this summer. He thinks both p90x and Insanity are too long. But now that I think about it, it probably wouldn’t be good for us to do Insanity right now anyways because of our current level of fitness. So I’ll be running to get that cardio in. I’m excited.
I have a summer class that starts tomorrow. It’s online, but I still have to do work for it. But not a lot of work (in my opinion). I’ll also be taking two other summer classes. All in psychology for my minor.
Tomorrow I’ll probably go to Express and try to see the manager about a job. I submitted an application when I was 17 (aaaalllmost 18) so when I tried to submit another one on the site it wouldn’t let me. I feel like it’s relevant with the changes on my resume. But regardless, I’d just like to work there during the summer and breaks. I love that store, man. Haha.
I plan to shadow a lot, also. I already have a list of people I’d like to shadow. I just have to do it. I’m waiting to see about a job first, though. I just wanna get things sorted out before I start my shadowing so it can all fall into place nicely.
Yeah, I’m not really relaxing much this summer, according to some people. But I don’t want to be completely relaxed. I wanna stay on my game. Get used to the stress so I can handle more and more if I need to. I mean, I won’t be working that hard…
Oh, you know. Just a starfish larva that looks like a scary humanoid ectoplasm ghostbuster thing chasing you.
this was actually a nightmare i had last week. oops.
I did indeed have that nightmare this morning. It woke me up 10 minutes before my alarm. But it happened in reality, too, so… Eek.
I don’t carry my planner one day and this happens. Doesn’t help that the last day of classes was yesterday, so the routine is gone.
I hope I get hired as a tutor. That would be a better job for me anyways. Not to mention, tutors don’t work during finals. So none of this forgetting work business.
I just wanna go home. Well. Not really. But I want to relax.
Always love these things. Enjoy!
All the models and celebs I follow on instagram went to the Met Gala. Obviously there were pictures. But I was kinda amazed at how many people were calling Miranda Kerr and Lily Alridge too skinny, unhealthy, anorexic, etc. When they don’t have bones jutting out or anything. They were in gowns. I asked one girl who commented what makes Lily look so unhealthy in her picture and there was no response. Exactly. Nothing.
You can’t “see” health anyways. There could be someone at your school, at work, whatever that seems perfectly healthy, but they could have an eating disorder. Looks have nothing to do with it. In extreme cases where bones are really jutting out or someone is size 4XL it’s a different story, but for a lot of people you honestly can’t tell, no matter how hard you try.
Drew was suggesting that all these girls are just jealous. I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s just amazing what bullshit people will say to get attention.

The light makes you super skinny in the full body picture. Cute outfit. How do you afford the stuff from Express? (Assuming that these are from Express since you love that store)
That one wasn’t on purpose haha. The lighting in my room was just like that. But thank you! The bracelet and dress are from Express. The necklace is from F21 (with modifications). The shoes are Charlotte Russe. And the rings are all from my mom.
I’m not rich, haha. Obviously as a student, but my family is more lower middle class. I have a job and I treat myself sometimes. But when I shop at Express I always have coupons and/or I go when there are sales. I also have an Express Next card, so I get rewards. (I’m a premium member… Yeah, I’m that cool.) But I also find stuff at Plato’s… And sell stuff at Plato’s. When people ask me what I would like for Christmas I give them access to my wishlist. And make sure to put aside some money for my own shopping during the Black Friday 50% off everything sales. Haha. Those sort of things. I’m very frugal when it comes to most anything else, so I’m sure that helps haha. But I’ve also been “collecting” Express stuff for several years.
I actually have a post sitting in my drafts I was writing about how to look rich when you’re not. Or something like that. Hahaha. (My goal is just classy, not rich snob or anything haha, that title just flowed nicely.) Another reason may be evidenced by the scant amount of “normal” or “comfy” clothing I have. I have two pairs of sweats. One pair of yoga pants. Three pairs of shorts. Four pairs of spandex. A collection of t-shirts I got for free or from clubs and whatnot. Five sports bras. One sweatshirt. Two Calvin Klein active fleeces. You get the picture. I see people with all these different PINK sweatpants and whatnot… They see me with nice clothing and jewelry from Express.
Today’s outfit. Haven’t posted one in awhile so I figured I would. Today was the last day of classes. And no, I didn’t dress up for that reason. I always look like this. So. Yeah. Haha. #classy #class #fashion #style #ootd #ootn #wiwt #blue #navy #dress #express #gold #jewelry #heels #shoes #pumps #nude #maryjane #noidontmeanweed #bling #fancy #brunette #chic #picstitch
My eyes look green, right? Haha. My eyes are a greenish gray. I wish they were a beautiful bright green. Agh well. Off to class. Lmao. #class #classy #fashion #wiwt #ootd #makeup #eyes #glam #bling #sparkle #green #brunette #chic #morning #jewelry #style
Life University isn’t far from me!
Life University is very far from me. Like all the way down the coast. Haha. I didn’t put a raffle ticket in for that because I wanted to go there. It was just there and it seemed like a useful item haha
What year are you? Are you studying for the ACS cumulative exam? If so, I am too haha we can commiserate.
I’m a freshman. But my college doesn’t do a cumulative exam like that. It’s just on this semester. But obviously you have to know some things from last semester, as well. It also tends not to be multiple choice haha.
