When she was just a girl, she expected the world

Hey girls! It's been a long time since my last blog post...which is quite embarrassing. The fact is, I've run out of creativity for blog posts and I don't know why. So here's a blog post about random things.

First of all, do any of you have Pinterest. If you don't, you need to get it. It is AWESOME! I love pinning fashion and beauty ideas, but they also have a lot of recipes and home decor ideas. It's sweet!

Do any of you know of some awesome songs to play on the piano? Because I'm on Christmas Break and all this free time is killing me (I like to be super busy) so I figured I should learn some piano songs...I've learned Someone Like You by Adele, Forget you by Cee Lo Green, and a couple other classic songs, but I really need suggestions.

Have you girls ever heard the song Love Song by Sara Bareilles? It is amazing... I love her voice!

Speaking of songs, kudos to you if you got the post title, it's from Paradise by Coldplay. Love that song!

Christmas is only a week away! Gosh, I am so excited. What are you getting or giving for Christmas?

That's about it....hopefully I'll start posting some more! Goodbye for now!

 a male friend
 a frequent or regular male companion in a romantic or sexual relationship
(webster dictionary)
A few days ago my friends, swim coach, and I were all talking about whatever and we got on the topic of boyfriends and girlfriends. Everyone was talking about who is there bf/gf how long they've been together...ya know.  THEN my(guy) coach said something GENIUS. 

 "You know why its called girlfriend and boyfriend? "


"Cause, first the person is you friend, you get to be really good friends and suddenly you realize, "Hey I like this person!" first their your friend, then you realize that he/she is a boy/girl"

For some reason, this just made so much sense.  
  “This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

  Today's myyy birrrfday. I am oficially 14.  I feel so oooooooooolllllllddddd.  hahaha not really.....its 12:42 AM and I am kinda going crazy cause i stayed up  late to finish homework (which was only finished like an hour ago thanks to the stupid computer (its a love hate relationship(most of the time its love except for when I 'm actually trying to do homework)) then got on the computer and now it is almost 1 am and I'm still awake!  you all now how that goes, yes? yes. When I'm really super tired i tend to babble on and on and since I can type ALMOST as fast as i think its all getting written down.  and its all mostly spelled wrong.  because its past midnight.  Theses are the crazy kinds of things I do.  
My Best Moments When I Was 13
Finally not being painfully shy.  I think some people wish i would shut up and be shy again...personally, its WAAY more fun to not be shy. just sayin'. This is by far my best moment although its not actually a moment i remember when i was little wishing i wasn't so shy.
Meeting my best friends in the whole WIDE WORLD. 
Realizing that its ok to be different.  in fact, its a whole lot more fun.
Learning how to surf
making so many new friends

I had a lot more to put down but then i started typing and they all left me.  I hate when that happens!!!!  haha

You Belong with me, Taylor Swift  (probably my favorite music video by her)

Mine, Taylor Swift (another favorite!)

Lots of Love,

Wordless Wednesday

Things that make me smile

Ok. first of all, I'm so sorry I've been MIA lately. I've been trying to balance tennis conditioning, after-school meetings, academic team, homework, studying for my Algebra I ECA test, and a BILLION other things. So anyway, sorry.

The other day, I was thinking about the things that make me smile. So here's the obligatory list for you :)

1) Peppermint Hot Chocolate
2) Christmas Music
3) Finally getting my tennis swing down
4) The pretty lights on our Christmas tree
5) My favorite song coming on the radio: We Found Love
6) A wonderful English speech that I spent 3 hours writing
7) The beautiful sunrises when my brother and I are going to school...just seeing the pink and orange glow contrasting against the completely white world from frost is just stunning...
8) The fact that Christmas is in 3 weeks!!!
9) Getting a strike in bowling
10) SNOW!!!
11) My solo for our regional solo and ensemble contest: Homeward Bound
12) Wonderful homemade soup for dinner when it's cold outside.

That's all I have for today folks...sorry this isn't very long! :)

Junior Olympics

Today I'm going to JUNIOR OLYMPICS!!!!!!!!! Its a three day swim meet.  Today is day 2!  To qualify you have to get a certain time for example a 50 yard freestyle (2 laps, down and back) the qualifying time is 27.something seconds.  My time is a 28:( i was really close. but next year i'll get it. :)I'm kinda glad im not swimming though cause its really really really cold right now and the pool is outdoors. But I am doing 1 relay!  Cause you don't have to get a qualifying time for those!!  Me and my 3 best friends are swimming them together!!! which makes it sooo much more fun. Lexi is doing butterfly she looks absolutly amazing when she does fly!! 

Kourtney is doing backstroke

Maddie is doing Breaststroke

And I am doing Freestyle!

(none of these pictures are of us!  I WISH I could look that incredible!!)

oh my gosh I am so nervous!!! haha i have no idea why though, i've done this all a million times!!!
