Once Upon a Time...

I cut my hair ALL off. I don't know what I was thinking because seriously I would never do that today. I was in 4th grade, and I remember being really bummed because nobody really noticed it was different. The reason I bring this up now is because apparently its the "cool thing" to have shoulder-length hair right now? A few people have asked me if I'm going to cut my hair since it's long, and I just say "Do you think since I've been trying to grow my hair back out since 4th grade that I would cut it off..?" No matter how annoying long hair gets(although I have it pretty easy because my hair is naturally straight and doesn't really frizz), I remind myself of 4th grade when I cut my hair short.
At least it was for a good cause though, right?
I cut my hair for Locks of Love. An organization that takes people's hair to make wigs for cancer patients. You can check out their whole non-profit organization page here.

My hair in the end(Notice the stain on my shirt please. I think
it reminds me why you don't wear plain white tshirts)

Our School Spirit..

Used to be horrible. Like you would think there were maybe 100 kids at most that went to our school because no one went to any games at all. This was really upsetting, but this year something changed.
We got BLEACHERS, which means we can actually have true home football games.
We got a POOL, which means we can have home water polo games.
We got an actual TRACK, which means we can have track meets at our school.

So at the end of August we had our first ever Home football game. It was glorious. Actually it was more than that, it was the most amazing thing to happen to me. It was so great that I lost my voice.
So basically my school never wins ANY Football games, we kind of gave up hope awhile ago, but we WON!! And it was a beautiful thing.

Before the game with Cassidie and Yovanna

OUR turf. OUR team. OUR year. GO STALLIONS!

Yovanna and I all spirited up for the game

That day was a very long day because for the whole day before that we had LINK crew, which is a group of kids who teach leadership through helping Freshmen adjust to high school. We were paired up with one other leader and we each had 10 freshman that we taught different team building games to. We then shared our own "high school stories". We shared different struggles we have had to get over, and helped them realize that high school isn't as scary as they may have thought it was. It was a great experience and I am so stoked to be apart of the group for the rest of the year.

Life Lately...

Has been pretty exciting. Before school started, I tried to fit everything in that I was going to miss. It was a very successful movement, and I can honestly say I am so much happier because of it. 

We definitely had to fit in some late nights at the cousins house in Carlsbad just having dinner, talking, and of course making smores. The weather was so nice then(now it's seriously soooo hot). 

Just making smores with the family
 Obviously with our passes finally working again(after a long Summer of them being blocked) we had to make a trip to Disneyland. My mom and I went together after a long day of a choir rehearsal and we met up with a few of my friends. It was a very fun last-minute trip!

Me, Emily, and Annie

Can't forget the mustaches

LOTS and LOTS of dancing.. We embarrassed Annie, but
that's okay because we were having so much fun

And me and my friend Rachel had promised our friend Rebecca we would come visit her at work close to the beginning of Summer, and we never got to it so we went and indulged in delicious food and visited her. She works at Bruxie which is a belgian waffle sandwich shop... Oh my heck it is beyond delicious! If anyone is ever in the area and wants to go on a lunch date there then I will always be open, I need an excuse to go ;)

I choose to pull out my $3 animal print skirt from a thrift store. And then I choose to take a crappy picture of my outfit so you get the idea. Now excuse me as I go spin around in my flowy skirt.

This is "that" post

School started. It's not bad yet. Notice how I say yet though because it only gets worse. I'm taking easy classes though so that's always a plus.

Here's my crappy first day picture:
I had to wear my Link Crew shirt for the Freshman to be able to find me to ask me questions. It made for an easy transition to school clothes(mainly because I wore this all summer).
In my hand is the car keys, my phone, and of course my chocolate milk because I can't go to school without it.

Below that picture is my carpool for today. We have one other lovely lady that is supposed to fit in between the 2 of them(although it might be impossible). Wish us luck next week!

P.S. I might start some more fashion posts now that I will actually get dressed for the day. I'll keep you posted

Close to the End

As Summer is quickly coming to an end, I've decided to compile some pictures of my first day of school since 6th grade(Well I think I'm missing 7th or 8th, but I'm not sure where it would be). It's weird to see how much I've changed. I have no idea why I would wear my hair up in a pony tail on the first day of 6th grade, mainly because I rarely do that even today. Oh well, I guess I'll never understand my thoughts when I was younger.

6th grade

7th or 8th(I can't remember)

9th(We had to wear our volleyball tshirts for our first game that night)

9th grade second day outfit
10th grade(Over the years we stopped being able to figure out how to stand for pictures)
