so much stuff has happened. i wish i could say it all, but its just too much. i don't understand why i've been so moody; i'm not stressed at all. i don't like how much i have been crying. i don't mean to, but i can't help it. i need a vacation, but the funny thing is that i just got back from one. i need to find time to write here more because it made me happy. i don't know why i stopped.
What inspires you to live happily? from fell in the nettles. I don't think that i have any specific 'inspirations' that keep me happy, i think its just more my mindset. I wake up every morning and say 'this is going to be a good day.' But, of course, some things go bad sometimes, and when that happens, i take out a poetry book, or turn on my 'feel better' playlist and get lost in lyrics and words until i forget why that one bad thing that happened to 'ruin' my day and why i made it so big and actually let it ruin my day. I also love looking at pictures on weheartit, or deviantart at beautiful pictures of happy people, or i look in magazines and look at all the smiling faces, and rather than thinking 'i wish i could be that skinny...' i think about how much more beautiful people are when they have a smile on their face, than when they're stick thin but pouty.
What do you usually do on a lazy Sunday afternoon????from agnes. Hm, well, on sunday afternoons, either 'lazy' or not, i be lazy. Sundays are my family/relaxation days, so basically all i do is go to church in the morning, then come home and cozy up and read a book. And now that its warmer outside i can sit outside and read and work on my non-existant tan! but other than that, i get organized, maybe clean up my room a little, get ready for the week ahead, that sort of stuff. I lead such an exiting life... haha.
What song makes you smile most in the world? from Inside the Cabinet of Wonder Love Shack by the B-52s. Every time I hear that song, I just imagine my father rocking out to it and it just makes me smile thinking of him singing extremely loud in an extremely high voice :D
What song, book, or film has had the most impact on your life?from Inside the Cabinet of Wonder That is such a hard question... but I think I would have to say the movie A Walk to Remember. Why? Because one summer after my cousin and I watched it, we decided to make a list of things we want to accomplish before we die, and it has helped me to become more outgoing and able to try new things. I, also, recently read the book The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, and it was a true inspiration to follow my dreams. Also, I read a small article written by her in Glamour magazine, and it is so wonderful, I have it taped on my full-length mirror hanging on my door so I see it every time I look at myself, and everytime I leave my room. Remind me to share it with you sometime- Jeannette Walls is truly fantastic. In addition, the song "You're Making it All Come Alive" by My Favorite Highway has provided me with optimistic and inspirational words that I have written in my room so I can see it everyday.
Thanks for your questions :D feel free to ask anymore if you think of one (:
Volleyball is over. school is getting more routine. but more stressful and more pounded with work. chemistry is kicking my ass. but my mom actually understands, and isn't putting anymore pressure on me. i miss volleyball. but i'm glad now i'll have more time for myself. Amanda, Courtney, and Hannah slept over last night. it feels good to hang out with friends again <3>
Dear Swine Flu, I hate you. Why did you have to infect people in my school and cause other schools to be afraid of us? I was looking forward to my game today! Honestly, you're not that big of a deal and I can tell you like all this attention but REALITY CHECK: you're not that much worse than the normal flu so H1N1, GET OVER YOURSELF. Hugs and KISSES, Hayley<3
This video (I can't embed it) pretty much sums up my life. Dancing around in my room. Singing really loud and being really crazy. Singing about my awesome teenage life. And how much I love it. I youtubed this song because I heart it on a commercial for TeenNick and I loved it. And I am in love with the video. and this guy. He is my hero. Watch this video and be amazed. Or I'll find you... (;
I do not understand this class. I absolutely adore French, and I'm actually very good at it, but you don't teach us anything. This business with you giving us a test every Friday is nonsense since we don't do anything during the week to prepare. I think you're hilarious and goofy, but honestly, this class better get more organized as the year goes on because I really want to get into French Honor Society, and I can't when I'm not doing well in your class!
1. I am in hate with APWH. 2. I believe I totally aced my chemistry test (: 3. math is hard. 4. My english teacher needs to stop popping up in random places when we're talking about her class... 5. Volleyball is going well (: 6. My teeth are still perfection (: 7. Right when I thought something was going to happen with Kyle, nothing did... hm... 8. Gym class is loads of fun. 9. Kelly needs to shut her mouth. 10. Haley needs to grow up and stop being such a hoe. sorry, but its true.
1. Spirit week was amazing. 2. It rained and was freezing during the homecoming football game and I still managed to have an amazing time. 3. Probably the best homecoming dance to date 4. Creating new friendships and reviving old ones 5. One word: Kyle. 6. Volleyball is awesome. 7. The best season of Degrassi is going to premier in FIVE DAYS. 8. My sweet sixteen is ONE MONTH from friday. 9. I'm playing the first clarinet part in band... and actually understanding most of it. 10. My wardrobe gives me immensely more confidence.
I just thought I'd share some of my art work from Studio in Art last year. I didn't have room in my schedule for an art class this year, and looking at these makes me sad ): but I'm planning on taking TWO next year to catch up for lost time (:
Draw and shade facial features pencil
Draw your hands doing something (My hand on the right; my friend's on the left) pencil
Bring in/use recycled objects and make a collage about your past, present and future. various objects; black and silver paint [my teacher entered this piece into a local student art show, but it didn't make it in]
Draw a fancy letter with an interesting theme (like the first letters in a story book) crayola crayons; black ink
p.s. while looking through my drafts and the posts that I never finished or never published, I found my 'background check' where you asked me questions and I answered them all... just never published them. So, I'm planning on posting them soon, but just letting you know that... ask me any questions you would like, because I'll be happy to add more (:
I'm tired. so very very tired. incredibly fatigued. Hm. I wish i had the inspiration to say something inspirational. Hopefully this weekend I'll actually act on my promise and write down all the things that have been happening...
something caught the corner of my eye... i glanced out the window... oh, it's just a cat.. wait! i look again to see this beautiful baby deer nibbling on my mother's flowers. i caught a few photos from the window before it dashed back home.
Wow. I havent turned my computer on all week. I have been so, incredibly busy with school and volleyball. I havent had time for anything but homework, showering, and sleeping! (oh, and eating of course) So much has gone on that I didn't get to comment about (like the VMAs, ANTM, etc) And even more to tell you about my new school year! Maybe tomorrow I'll have more energy to type out all that I've been meaning to say for 6 long days... So, expect some posting on the weekends possibly, but I'm not going to be a very good blogger in the next coming weeks...
"My wife and I shall be married for one whole year on Thursday (September 10th). Rather than buying each other gifts that mean more when they are bought for no reason at all, we decided to celebrate our first anniversary by sponsoring an unloved dog from a rescue group - something we shall do each and every anniversary. To celebrate what love really looks like."
demolition derbies, misspelled words, light lights lights, rides that go round and round, the smell of grease, discovering a frozen banana stand reminding me of Arrested Development, funny graffiti in the bathroom, bike giveaways, walking around and shooting random people with bubbles, seeing "Jimmies" rather than "Sprinkles" and laughing, getting sick from the car ride there, the rides, and the car ride back, going into my mother's room to say goodnight, and, not being able to see a thing, run into the door on my way out receiving a black and blue nose, laying in bed and not being able to fall asleep, then not being able to get up in the morning because I was so sick. As much fun that I had, I have decided that the fair is not for me.
As you can tell, we don't have a very large selection of stores in my town... haha. But I'm not complaining because it was sure hard to keep to my budget! I found so many great things that i had to leave in the store. sigh...
