In other news... it's Friday! We had an unexpected dumping of snow upon the entire county yesterday during school hours, and there was no other option but to have us sent home two hours early. That was rather nice. I took a nap.

Also, I hope you guys got to see the moon tonight. It was absolutely beautiful, and my fingers managed to stay attached to my shaking hands long enough for me to snap a few pictures (the ones above). And yes, I'm a cheater for photoshopping them.

A Rocket to The Moon - "Not a Second to Waste"

(This song gives me goosebumps. It's also quite possibly the most amazing song ever, to those of you who haven't had the pleasure of hearing it already)

I love you one, two, three, shooby-doo

ey guys,

This post is gonna be a quickie.

First off, I got this as a fortune in a fortune cookie that I stole from someone's abandoned secret sister bag at last night's track meet:

I know that believing in fortune cookies and stuff like that is stupid, but I'm secretly hoping it's true. After all, I still make wishes at 11:11 religiously. I'm also wondering what my dearest wish is, exactly. I sure hope it's something good.

Oh, and I just felt the need to share with you guys that 3oh!3 came out with a new song you can check out HERE. I think it's gonna be on the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack. :]

And I know that there are quite a few of you Nevershoutnever fans out there, and I just wanted you to be aware that I added the songs and the lyrics to his new album coming out Tuesday to my Youtube channel. :D

Oh and ALSO, I'm starting a new dream-log blog (haha that rhymes). I haven't posted anything in it yet, but you guys can check it out HERE if you want to.

And let me apologize for making this post seem like an advertisement. :[

I'll send it out to the lonely ones

Oh my god that was a lot of work. Four hours of testing every single day for a week (minus Monday, of course... I got to spend that day at a track meet) is enough to drive a person crazy. My gas meter had finally reached "empty" the second I put down my pencil after my chemistry exam today. I plan on filling it back it up with fourteen hours of sleep, goldfish crackers, cupcakes, and a nice chunk of time watching the 'tube this weekend.

I also got Photoshop on my computer, which was how I got the picture above to look like it was taken through a fisheye lens. I took a Photoshop class last semester and it was a lot of fun. Who knows-- maybe if I don't become an author of some sort graphic design could be a possibility. :]

And I also got a B+ on my English creative writing piece! I know a B+ shouldn't be something to be ecstatic about, but my teacher definitely wasn't the most lenient of graders this past semester; I don't think she liked me much...

I definitely want to post my English piece here, but I'll have to do a bit of editing to make it good enough for you wonderful people. :] It had to be under three pages, but I was already over the limit before I could ideally finish it up. I tried making the font smaller and everything, too, but the ending was pretty hurried and not too great.

Also, the uber-creepy thing I did was base the character off this guy in the grade above me from my school. Well, I didn't really base my character off of him but I sort of imagined him to look the same way my main character did even though I knew nothing about this person's personality.

Also, I had a dream about this-guy-from-my-school-that-I-sort-of-based-a-character-for-my-English-story-on the other night. We were best friends in the dream, and remember trying hard to remember where we met, and I just couldn't put my finger on it. It then occurred to me that it was a dream. Uncool.

I know I said that liking people only led to disappointment or something. So I'm not going to say that I like this person. I don't know him at all. I think he's hot (he's one of those indie-type people... so amazing.). I do not like him because I think a chunk of that is based off of personality. Therefore I lust him (not in an intense sexual way, sicko :p).

Be safe, be well, listen to the music in the link below, and don't play in the street, my lovelies.

Am I the one to blame for your dreams? Do you ever wake at night and scream?

Miss Macmillan
5th grade
“I am”

I am a happy daydreamer.
I wonder why the moon is so bright.
I hear my dogs howling at everything that moves
I see the stars twinkling at me in the sky.
I want a world with a smile.
I am a happy day daydreamer

I pretend to travel to St. Lucia again.
I feel so happy when we finally get there.
I touch the soft warm sand.
I worry we have to leave soon.
I cry as we board the plane.
I am a happy daydreamer.

I understand that school is sometimes hard.
I say ‘’I love middle school!’’
I dream of what I did today.
I try my hardest on everything I do.
I hope for a wonderful year.
I am a happy daydreamer.

First off, please take note of the date. By no means has this been written recently.

Young, naive 10-year-old Kay, the moon is bright because it reflects the sun, which is pretty damn bright if you haven't noticed.

You also don't seem like such a happy daydreamer when you board the plane. Huh-lo, it's your daydream. Why don't you stay forever, silly?

Also, I thought you hated middle school? Why would you exclaim such a thing as your love for middle school? Why would you include two apostrophes instead of quotation marks? Wasn't it the worst experience of your life until the beginning of eighth grade when you actually made some friends?

I'm sure you're still a daydreamer today. Just probably not as happy as this little bouncy fifth-grader is.

Oh, you and your happy daydreaming.

Cartel - "Faster Ride"

(I just downloaded their new album, "Cycles" like a week ago. It's awesome. I really recommend listening to it all the way through. Will Pugh's voice is to die for, pretty much)

I be[lie]ve in miracles, deep inside my soul

I feel like ew. Update: "ew" is now listed as a noun. And a legitimate word. Deal.

I feel like such a mean person. You know how you always hear of abusive parents? Abusive boyfriends (don't say that I'm being stereotypical... statistics don't lie)? Yeah, I'm an abusive child. My mom tells me often whenever we're in a screaming match, which happens more often than never.

"You are an ABUSIVE CHILD!"

I don't want to be. I don't mean to be. It's those little elves inside my head. I swear. I don't like having fights like this.

Or maybe it's just that I have a short temper. You can't always blow off steam by yelling into a pillow or counting to ten, you know. Sometimes it's just too late and you've already done something you regret. And then you realize how good it feels and can't stop. All the stress from school, finals, friends, and just plain old irrational anger comes barreling out. It's just not fair. Not to anybody.

And the worst part? They welcome you back with open arms. The wrong side of the argument ends up apologizing, and it's just not right. All you can manage to croak out is, "no--I don't deserve--I'm not--"'

Just had to get that off of my chest, lovelies.

Yeah, don't you absolutely love my irrelevant titles?

Counting every heartbeat one by one...

Oh happiness and joy and elation! I have been tagged by Meredith to receive my very first award! :]

How wonderful! I suppose I have to write seven random facts about myself... but I hate the number 7! Oh well... D:

Here are the rules that came with the award:

1) Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2) Copy the award & place it on your blog.
3) Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4) Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
5) Nominate a few bloggers and post a link to their blogs.


1. I think I would be a different person if I didn't take the time to explore music. I know, it bothers me when people go flouncing around acting like music has "enlightened" them and they have become a philosopher of some sort, but it's actually is true, in a way.

2. I desperately want to write for a living when I get older. But it upsets me whenever I think of how terrible my English grade is (it's almost too embarrassing to post here). I apply myself. I spend long hours into the night cranking out my various exploratory and thesis essays to try and please her. I have never EVER gotten any grade better than a B- on any of her papers. I don't mean to sounds vain, but I know for a fact that I deserve a grade better than that. It makes me want to cry. She's a MEAN BITCH (that felt good to say).

3. I have a spit gland under my tongue, so I can lift up my tongue and squirt at people with ease. It annoys them, oftentimes.

4. I have scoliosis. Yes, my days that I am able to walk on my own are numbered. Just kidding (not the scoliosis part, though, silly) :]

5. I have stopped having "crushes" on people. I've just quit cold turkey. It just leads to disappointment.

6. My feet are ENORMOUS and are far too big for my body. I'm just pretty much awkwardly shaped as it is, though.

7. I feel like I should end on a significant note. Well, I suppose that I can say that this blog has really allowed me to think a lot of things out, and to help me organize myself. I know, I've only done what, 20 posts? But it really, truly has. I swear.

I tag (please forgive me if you've already done this... I suppose it just means that you're doubly amazing!):
~Candy from Confessions of a Candyhol!c
~Shalia from My Life
~Megan from Life
~Crayolaa.Musical from Diary of an Aspiring Dancer (Please forgive me for not following your blog... I'm not entirely sure how to, actually :p)

And the lovely Shalia has tagged me in another blogging activity thing, but I'll probably do that later. :]

I've also decided to put a song recommendation at the end of each post... just 'cause. I'm not going to guarantee that you have or haven't heard it or if you will or will not like it... but hopefully you will ;]

My stomach's turning

What did they all look at? by B℮n.

Is it normal
that I'm always thinking of other people
and how fascinating they are?
There are so many
and every single one of them has a story to tell.
I was just browsing through blogs
and it was incredibly interesting to see how some aspire to be dancers
or jounalists
or actors
and just about everything under the sun.
They all have hopes and dreams and stories.
I suppose normal people don't think about that
and they just accept the fact
that they won't know every single person's story.
But I'm not normal, exactly...
