Time is flying by

Today in yearbook class, Elizabeth found this long paragraph about what it means to graduate from  high school and honestly, it made me want to cry. Because I don't want to miss all of these amazing people that I've grown up with. I don't want to miss having Paige right next door to talk to whenever. I don't want to miss any of this fun time in my life. And sure, we all have to grow up, but every time I think about what it will mean to be out of high school, I get a lump in my throat. So in the following paragraph, I'll underline all of the parts that hit me the hardest. :) We should all realize that time is flying and that pretty soon, we're going to have to grow up and make a real life for ourselves. Here it is :)

Senior year is unlike any other. Here are a few things you should know.. It won't hit you when you wake up for your last first day of school. It won't hit you as you walk into the Senior locker bay for the first time as an official senior. It won't hit you when you cheer at your last homecoming pep rally and attend your last football game. It won't hit you as you go to your last homecoming dance and realize Prom is way better without the lower classmen and the DJ. It won't hit you as you enter the floor to perform at state for the last time. It won't hit you as you fill out the countless college applications. It won't hit you as you write that generic essay letter that you try to use for all your applications. It won't hit you as your college friends return for Christmas break and give you all their advice. It won't hit you as you celebrate New Year's with the friends you have known since childhood. It won't hit you when you cheer at your last Senior night and cry your eyes out! You won't feel it when you are having the time of your life at your last spring break. You don't realize it during Senior skip day, when everyone, no matter what group you are in, has a picnic. When May finally comes around and you realize that it is your last Prom, but you don't really feel it when you are there having the time of your life. You begin to realize it at Graduation when you look around and realize that you will never see half of these people again. You will begin to see it more over the summer when everyone is getting their roommates, class schedules, and going to orientation. It still hasn't fully hit you when you are sitting in your room packing up the past 18 years of your life, laughing with your best friend about all the stupid stuff you've done. You might feel it the morning you leave for college as that it is the last time you will see your room, your parents, and your best friend for like 3 months. It will finally hit you when you are sitting in your dorm room with a perfect stranger, that you have to live with for the next year. Please, Please, PLEASE make every moment of your Senior year count, you only get to do it once. College will be a lot of fun, but in the meantime, jump at every opportunity you get to do anything that you have ever wanted to do. Spend as much time with friends as possible, for it will not be long until you meet new people and inevitably grow apart.

Well there it was :'( It just get's me all torn up! My friends mean the entire world to me, and I know I'm not coming back here after college. I just hope I can keep them around for as long as possible haha :)

Ready for November

So things didn't work out with that guy, like I knew it wouldn't. Am I upset? Nope. Not a bit. Why? Because I'm used to this! I start liking someone and then I find out they don't like me back then I start thinking, You know Sara, you really are an idiot when it comes to boys. And then I do it all over again. But at least this time, the guy had the decency to not blow the whole thing out of proportion.

In other more important news, NaNoWriMo is coming up November first, so if any of you are up for writing a 50,000 or more word novel in one month, get to outlining! I just finished outlining the entire plot for the story that I'm going to write and the waiting is killing me! I keep writing random scenes, re writing them, and then tossing them in the trash. When I'm not doing that, I'm researching :) This book has the potential to be really good and I really hope I can write it well enough :)

Story time! :) Today in school we had to take our pre ACT test. Fun, right? Nope. It was stupid on so many levels. Especially since I won't take any of my core classes until next semester. So on the science part of the test, I was just randomly choosing answers. It doesn't help that the devil incarnate is our guidance counselor. Ha! Like I would tell that woman anything. I swear she's the most hateful woman I've ever had to be around.
Me and Tristan kept pretend crossing ourselves and acted like we were sprinkling Holy water in the cafeteria. :)

It was over all a pretty okay day :)

peace, love, and exorcisms,

Life's too short to even care at all oh
I'm coming up now coming up now out of the blue
These zombies in the park they're looking for my heart
Oh oh oh oh
A dark world aches for a splash of the sun oh oh ~ Young the Giant: Cough Syrup

When we watched the Exorcist was I terrified? Nope. When I think about it a whole day later am I scared to death? Yeah! I was so scared from just thinking about it, that I made my brother stay in my room with me tonight.But why am I so freaked out now? It might have had something to do with the fact that at about 1:40 this morning, I woke up to my brother about two inches in front of my face saying, "Sara." In this creepy voice. What did I do? What any person's first reaction should be, I slapped him in the face and sat straight up in bed. He was on the other side of my bed and I could't see his face so I flipped on the light. Here's how the conversation went.
Me: Nate! Wake up! Why would you do that to me?!
Nate who has his eyes still closed: It wasn't me! It was him! That guy!
Me: What guy?! (At that point I was getting so freaked out)
Nate: He was standing right there! But it wasn't him, it was his guest.
Me: Who are you talking about?!
Me: Stop yelling!

So I made him open his eyes and when he did they were just dazed looking, like he was still asleep. So I made him get out of my room, and he leaves on my side of the bed.
Which is why I'm so freaked out that I can't go back to sleep. That movie bothered me way too much and Nate has really vivid nightmares..

Morning on the weekends

The first thing that I consciously thought this morning was, Why am I so cold? I pulled the covers around me, glancing around the dark upstairs room to where Elizabeth was asleep on the couch. If I was cold and I had three blankets, then she must have been freezing. I tugged the covers up around my neck trying to get warmer and that's when I noticed that the comforter was completely on Paige's side of the bed. So I yanked a big handful of it towards me and went back to sleep. I woke up a few hours later to the sunlight hitting me smack in the face and the sound of someone walking around in the bathroom. I was freezing again because Paige had taken the covers back, so when my only other morning person friend Elizabeth walked out of the bathroom, I just got up.
Last night was great :) Not only because a lot of my good friends got to be there, but the guy that I mentioned a couple posts back? He was there too :) In fact, he sat beside me the whole time. I was pretty happy :D 
We watched the Descent and the Exorcist last night, and this morning we watched Case 39. Honestly, the Descent just made me jump a couple of times...and scream once or twice... but it didn't really freak me out. 
I was just really glad that I was sitting on the right side of the couch because I tend to jump to the right when I get scared, and otherwise the guy that I have a crush on would have gotten a nice elbow to the face. Needless that would have been totally embarrassing. Towards the end of the Exorcist when I was hiding behind my blanket, the guy took it from me and made me watch the scary part, which didn't really make me mad at all :) 

Well that's about it for this post, but I have more to talk about so I'll get on later :)

Tonight I'll dream while I'm in bed 
when sill thoughts go through my head
about the bugs and alphabet
and when I wake tomorrow I'll bet
that you and I will walk together again
cause I can tell that we
are going to be friends ~ The White Stripes

That one long post that annoys everyone because I haven't blogged in a while :)

Here it is! A long post that I'm writing to just talk about... Everything! All at once... so brace yourself!

First of all, even though I haven't done anything of interest over fall break, I still didn't blog. Why? Not really sure, I was just really lazy, but I promise that this week I'm making up for it by swearing to blog everyday. Otherwise, like today, I end up with fifty thousand stories that I'd like to tell you guys and not enough time. Then again, I guess I have all the time in the world to just start telling all of you everything :)

Moving on. I found an amazing artist over fall break after watching Whip It for the first time :) Great movie by the way, one of my new favorites! Basically because Ellen Page is hilarious and because she's one of my favorite actresses :) Anyways, this new artist that I love so much is Landon Pigg. His songs are so pretty! Right now my favorite is Great Companion which you can watch below :) The acoustic version is always better.
I realize that the entire video is just a picture of his face, but it has alright quality when it comes to sound :)
Here's a song from Whip It that he sings :) Completely different from the first song which is one reason why I love him haha

Next topic!
This Friday is scary movie night at my house and I'm pretty happy :) Kimberlee can't come, her brother has a game. I'd much rather her go to that though, because I'm sure she'd regret missing one of his last games. It's his senior year! So Kimberlee, since I know you're reading this because I'm about to text you and tell you to watch the videos on this post, go to his game! There will be other movie nights :) but there won't be other games for your brother.

BOOM! Next thing :)
Another reason I'm happy might have something to do with a guy... Oh! This should be interesting :) I've never told you about any guys before :) And I'm not going to tell you now either! In the future, if I ever have a boyfriend that can put up with all of my crazy and still like me, then I'll tell you. I just don't want to waste the energy writing about someone who might not like me back, know what I'm saying?

Anyways, you can all just keep reading to find out if anything that I do works out :) Honestly, the funny thing is that I started out thinking this would be an angry post, but it hasn't been at all! So now I'm even happier :)
Goodnight! Talk to you tomorrow :) I'll leave you with one last Landon song, and a song lyric :)

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes.
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams.
And life gets more exciting with each passing day.
And love is either in your heart, or on it's way. ~ Young at Heart by Frank Sinatra :)
Landon Pigg did an awesome cover of this song by the way :)

A TV show review: American Horror Story

Oh wow... Where to start! My mom and I love to watch scary shows, and movies, and we love a good scary book. When we saw the commercials for this we were all like, "Yeah! Let's watch it!" Big. Mistake.
That show was terrible! Not only did the acting, writing, and directing suck, but I was so lost half the time that I had no idea what was going on.
First of all, that show was very cliche. A typical dysfunctional American family with marital issues and a troubled teen move into a big creepy house where several people have died. In other words, this show is just like every other scary show you've ever watched that didn't last very long. I guess I should also throw in the fact that all the murders took place in the creepy basement and, what makes this story even more original? The last owners to live in the house covered up the walls with bad wallpaper. What were they covering up? Creepy murals of children and older people in pain! Wow, didn't see that one coming. Let's also add a creepy little girl into the mix and a scary old housekeeper who appears to the cheating husband as an attractive young woman. Maybe now's the time that I should tell you about how the idiot husband, who loves to just roam about his house naked, is a psychiatrist who is currently treating a teenage boy who fantasizes about killing all the good people to get them out of the "filthy world". Did I mention that the husband treats all of his patients in his house? What a smart man.
But let's go back to the teenage girl who cuts herself, smokes, and hates the world. Why hasn't her father, the psychiatrist, picked up on any of this? And why is he so surprised to learn that his daughter and the crazy teenage boy he's been treating are becoming friends?
As you can see, the TV industry is still not creative when it comes to horror shows. I give American Horror Story a 2/10. Watch it if you want, but I definitely don't recommend it for younger viewers.

Wiped out

Sorry I haven't posted in forever, I've been really busy lately. Again.
My mom works with a guy who records songs and she's taking me in to work with him on a short CD next Saturday. Which means I've been trying to make sure all of my songs are ready to go.. and the ones that aren't even written yet? I've been writing. So while I've been shut up in my room trying in vain to come up with good sounding song lyrics, I just mostly want to fall asleep. And then there's always mom's suggestion, that I do a song with a bunch of 'la la la's and single strums" in it. Hey, we're talking about a girl who got her inspiration for a sock here. It doesn't take much. I love to sing, but I wasn't sure I wanted everyone to know I could sing, you know? I don't even think I'm that great. But whatever, it's fall break so I have to be happy right? :)  Well, I'm getting off. Bye!

So I told you that I would get around to putting my songs on the blog and... here they are :) I'm a little new to actually letting people hear me, so tell me what you think! :) I wrote both of these not too long ago (which is why they still need a heck of a lot of improvements :/

I wanna hear the good, the bad, and the ugly! :)
