*Sighs in relief*
I don't think anyone understands how happy I am. Well, I'm actually quite depressed, because I discovered that I'm getting a stupid B in honors U.S History. I studied so hard for that test, and I got a 40/50 on it, and so I have a 89% as my overall grade, AND HE WONT CHANGE IT. And then my teacher tried to make me feel better by telling me that he knows I try really hard and that our principal is doing some stupid thing for students who work really hard or something and my teachers told me he was going to nominate me -___-
I JUST WANT A DAMN A. Gosh darn, he makes me so mad. What sucks is that this is the semester grade, so its locked in and I have no chance in changing it. Why me? WHY FREAKIN' ME? GAHHH I'm (obviously) really upset about this. And for the nomination thing- I DON'T CARE. I couldn't care less if I tried. I'm being so incredibly bitter that I don't even want to be nominated. I don't have an A, so why should I even be considered as a stupid nominee? And then emotional me started crying and ON TOP OF THAT- I have a physics final today. And I was just so distraught about my B that I didn't hear my teacher (who completely hates me for some damn reason) tell us that we only had to go to problem 23 and I had gone up to question 47, and then this stupid obnoxious girl behind me who has a fake Gucci bag was like "AHAHAHAHHA YOU LOSER." REALLY NOW? I HAVE TO EFFING DEAL WITH THIS STUPID GIRL BEHIND ME? Freaking shoot me now. Please.
Thankfully, I made it through the day in one piece although quite a depressing piece. I'm just glad the day is over. Im going to be a rebel and not go to school tomorrow until fourth period, and I would skip the whole day but newspaper distribution is tomorrow and I don't wanna miss it.
Today was just such a bad day, and now I want a churro ):
Good night peeps.
And sorry I was so angry in this post. Ill try to control it next time.

A Measly Face of the Day and How My Measly Day Went.

So today is not my day. And I shall explain why. But first, I will present a very inconsistent face of the day picture.
As you can see, I went really really simple on the makeup for this Saturday day.
On Face:
MAC Prolong Wear Concealer NC20
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Pressed Powder
Clinique Cupid Blush
On Eyes:
MAC Painterly Paint Pot
Hard Candy Butter Scotch (all over lid)
Tarina Tarantino Bangle (crease)
MAC’s Era (outer corner)
MAC’s Naked (highlight)
Curled Lashes w/ Lash Curler by Bobby Brown
Hair: Since it was slightly damp, I put it in a bun and blow-dried it and got really nice textured waves ^__^ But the top of my head didn’t want to cooperate so I threw a cap (with a heart I drew :DD) on.
TIP: Warm up your lash curler by blow drying it for five seconds and the curling your lashes, it does WONDERS!

So there it is! A very simple face of the day. Maybe I should do a tutorial. Ehhhhhhhh, we’ll see :)

AS FOR MY DAY. Sigh. You’re probably thinking, what in the world are you doing wearing makeup on a Saturday?! Well, Mock Trial seems to have officially taken over my life. And it will continue to do so for the next two weeks, since competition is at the end of the month.
So anyway, I had to wake up at nine and head to my school at 10:45. I would usually be sleeping in but clearly that is not the case. When I get to the school nearly everyone is waiting outside for the teacher to come since she was running a little late, and so Megan was actually at the school as well (for honor theater rehearsals) so I brought her a drink and got to catch up with her for like three minutes and then I had to go.
So today's meeting was like the real deal. We set up the classroom like a court house and I tried to study my lines because I’m an expert witness (the doctor) and I have to really know my facts. And so when I get up to the stand, I do well at first (please keep in mind that I am on the prosecutor side) and then when the cross examination happened, Josh, (who happens to speak really fast yet is very demanding and pushy when it comes to examining witnesses- he’s a good one) was the one cross examining me -___-
And I felt like he grilled me. He kept on trying to get me to agree with him and tried to turn my theory around and all sorts of other crap. He started coming up with a bunch of other things too and I just told him it’s a possibility but no, that’s not what I am entitled to believe. He was pretty much putting words in my mouth. And then when I got back to my seat, JUNGLE (who was unfortunately there) had the audacity to tell me that Josh said something and I shouldn’t have agreed -___- I was extremely pissed. But E came over to me and told me how great of a job I did and when I denied his kind compliment he told me I was the only witness that fought back. And that was kinda true. And so I felt better. But what really kinda pissed me off is that the prosecutors (whom I WORK WITH) didn’t really stand up for me while I was being grilled. They could have objected to A NUMBER of things, but they didn’t. Two of the prosecutors I actually don’t really like, they both annoy me and I feel like they play their roles pretty bad. But I do love the other prosecutor, who did a pretty good job. But honestly, I don’t like a majority of the kids in that club. Which is all the more reason why I don’t like being in this club. I really did think our meetings would consist of watching reruns of Law & Order: SVU (not the original of criminal intent, me no like those ones, all about SVU!) but instead we get boring lectures about the world of law. Sighhhh. WHY DID I DO THIS?!
On top of the intensity of Mock Trial, I have finals next week. I am so overwhelmed and stressed that I feel like I shouldn’t even be blogging but it does take some stress away.
Oh well, since we have a pretty bad team (I’m so incredibly negative toward this) I’m pretty sure we won’t win and therefore we won’t go to finals and then Ill have my normal life back before Mock Trial ever happened to me! YAYYYY. I can’t wait till the day.
Have a good one guys.

Its kinda like A West Side Strory

So on Saturday night, my wonderful friend Megan had invited me to see the Broadway musical West Side Story with her and two of our other friends at the Civic Theater in downtown. She told me this is an occasion where we must dress to impress, so I did just that. After arriving at her house at four, I helped do her makeup and hair, and she looked absolutely stunning.
Then Marketa and Itzel came over and I helped them get ready as well. They all looked gorgeous, and of course I offered my assistance to them when prom comes around. So anyway, we went out to dinner at a fabulous Greek restaurant where we had a wonderful meal. And then we went to the bathroom to touch up our lipstick, and right out the exit of the restroom Megan began snapping ridiculous pictures of me (they were horrible) but all the others of Marketa and Itzel were cute :) And then we started running low on time so we made our way to downtown and inside the Civic Theater.
It was my first time seeing a Broadway musical, so I was super excited. And I was not disappointed. The play was incredible. The actors, the music, the dresses, even the snapping. My goodness it was so good. I think my favorite part is where Tony is singing to Maria on the balcony "Tonight" and it just... ah. It made me so happy and gave me hope that one day I'll find my Tony. I was kind of surprised to see how similar it was to Romeo and Juliet. I mean, really similar. Same concept and everything. I really couldnt of asked to start my Broadway fiasco in any other way. Being in such great company with the most amazing girls I know combined with a musical involved with love, humor, and tragedy is just mind blowing.
What a wonderful, wonderful night.

Happy New Year! Heelllllooooo 2011 :)

Yaay! We made it through another year! I hope you guys will have a great New Year, hopefully 2011 will bring us wonderful things :) I thought that my blog post today can be about my new years resolution. So- here I go.
1) Focus on school more.
I think everyone can agree with me on this one if you're in school. I mean, I’m doing very well in school and I couldn't be more proud of myself, but I want to continue that and maybe even be better. I want to make sure that as soon as I am home I’ll get right into my school work although I can’t make any promises. But I really do just want to be focused on school and not let anything distract me. And this includes focusing more on my SAT book and course online. My goodness its so disappointing to see how I'm doing.
2) Eat better.
SOOOO cliche. But its something I'm sure every non-vegetarian can agree on. I eat junk and I'm not going to lie. But I ENJOY junk. Sure, I feel guilty when I'm done with tasty goodness, but sometimes I lose my control. I know that I'm not in the best potential shape I can be in, so I want to change that. I want to get back down to the weight Im happy with. Starting right after I finish this green tea boba. :)
3) Be nicer.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m actually a really nice person (cocky much?) but I can easily come across as a b*tch if people don’t know me. People tell me that the first time they see me, I look as if I think I’m better then all of them and that I look "unapproachable". Well, all you have to do is just talk to me (I dont bite!) But that’s aside the point. Im going to try to be nicer (if possible) and look nicer too. But don’t expect me to be smiling in the hallways as I walk by myself looking like a lunatic. This was probably a stupid resolution, but oh well. Oh. Im also going to try to stop judging people, because Im guilty when it comes to that. I jump the gun before I know someone. And Im actually dead on most of the time, but for the small percent when Im wrong, boy do I regret ever thinking anything bad about a certain person. So I really need to stop that.
4) Update my blog more.
I find it really sad that Ive had this blog for a year and I only have four followers. But hey, Im grateful for those four! Well, three cause Im following my own blog. But anyway, Im going to definitely update and keep up with this blog, even if they're short ones. I really do enjoy expressing myself through anyone who reads this and I find it exciting too. And I also feel like the past two months or so I did pretty well in updating, although I could probably have done better. But I know there were many periods of time where I didn't update my blog for months. ITS HORRIBLE. So I vow to write more :) And hopefully the word will get across for my blog for any of those who are interested in reading what I write about! Mainly my life, but heey, some may find it intriguing.
5) Wear less makeup.
Not that I wear much to begin with. But when I think about it, I realize that there are some things I can easily go without. Like, do I really need eye shadow every day? Or eyeliner? I definitely can’t go without my concealer or powder, but for everything else I know its not needed. So I’m definitely going to go simpler on the makeup.
6) Be more forgiving.
This is a good one. I’m going to start loosening up on my grudges, mainly because I know that they really put my guard up. And life is all about taking chances, and even second chances. I just got to make smart decisions and be in the right group. I know that I can be stubborn and hard headed, but I really did feel like it made me a stronger person. And I still do, but I know at times that it can really get in the way on the way I view things so I’m going to start being more forgiving.
7) Read at least one book every single week.
This is a big one for me. Its very important to me that I read because its one of my biggest passions. I really did slack off on reading my books this year, but then came along my wonderful & beautiful friend Megan and she was really like my own personal library. She lent me so many books and introduced me to some wonderful authors I probably would have never known otherwise. I’ve came across this amazing bookstore (I wont name since its local) but its basically a book exchange store and a used book store. I bought 107 dollars worth of books for 10 dollars. That’s right. TEN FREAKIN DOLLARS. Amazing. I even sell some of my unwanted books to them. I only get a dollar but whatever. They have a one dollar section and then a three dollar section. Its really and truly amazing. I started getting books I normally wouldn’t buy, but my excuse is “Its only a dollar”. That’s what I was telling my sister who was constantly asking “Should I get this?”
Its only a dollar.”
Anyway. I have no reason not to be reading new books this year with a dollar for a book. So Im very excited about this resolution.
Its getting ridiculous how long Im procrastinating with this. It has to end. I will start in two weeks. I hope.
9) Stop Procrastinating.
I think everyone can relate with me on this one. Its getting ridiculous of how much I procrastinate. Procrastination is like my frenemie. Its horrible, yet I always run to it. I really need to start being on check with things because its better to be prepared than sorry. I know that’s not exactly how the line goes, but it works. Any who, Im going to try to get things done when the need/should be done.
10) Be more Open Minded.
Its not that I’m not open minded, but Im definitely not as open minded as I wish I could be. I don’t take criticism well, and I’m not as creative as others. I want to go out of my shell and be more inspired and willing to accept new ideas to make my ideas even better. Anything that is going to be beneficial to me I want to accept.
11) Stop Over-Analyzing.
I really really REALLY need to work on that. I over-analyze like no other, and while it can be good at times, its actually pretty unhealthy for myself. Because it affects the way I think and how I do things. So I want to just let my mind loosen up and stop lingering over things that I KNOW are unimportant to me. So I will work on that this year. I promise.
And there it is! My top eleven resolutions! There’s more, but I didn’t want to bore you guys. If any of you guys made any resolutions I’d love to read them so please put them on your blog and comment below! Thanks for reading, and I wish you all a very happy & love filled new year! <3
