Video Diary

I've seen so many people starting "video diary" type things, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm not exciting enough like people such as: Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, etc. But I'm doing my best to make my life interesting where other people would want to hear about it. Lol. And bear with me as I get used to the randomly talking to the camera...I feel weird about that! Here's my first one about the first day of school...haha. Sorry for being lame!

Tweets from Pretty Little Liars Creator

I follow I. Marlene King on Twitter, who is the Executive Producer/Creator of Pretty Little Liars, and she tweets people back quite a bit, so I've been tweeting her more, asking random questions about the show and what's going to happen, etc. I've gotten a couple back which really made my day, because I'm a huge fan of the show!!!

Scavenger Hunt With Friends

So, a couple weeks ago, one of my best friends, Laurie had this scavenger hunt with her church, so myself and some of our other friends joined her. I took some video of us driving around and figuring out where to go around town, after getting the clues. It's probably not that exciting if you weren't there, but I had the perfect song to describe that night, so I wanted to put it in a short video! :)

Last Tuesday, I went to the Staples Center to see Taylor Swift with my mom! It was one of the best days of my life. I missed only my second day of class, but it was so worth it, because I didn't miss anything except for notes. Anyway, we got down to LA, ate at our usual place, Paty's, then hung out by the arena basically all afternoon waiting for Taylor's band, because they're all totally amazing too! We got to see everyone walk in, I met a few of them, saw her parents, and even Taylor herself drive in!

We got into Staples basically as soon as the doors opened, and they had this contest to text in a message on the screen for a chance to win Pit Passes! So, I sent in a couple, and the rest ended up not going through, so I was like eh, oh well, these seats are totally fine and didn't think much about it again. I figured my mom had been texting enough for the both of us, so that was cool. The two opening acts came on, and about 15-20 minutes later, I got a text saying I had won pit passes to the show!! I could not believe it. I had five minutes to call the number they gave me and claim the passes! So, immediately I called them, they told me where to go and we headed up there. When we got to the area they'd designated, I wasn't sure that was it. There was no one else around really, and I was thinking there would be a group. A few minutes later, a guy with a Taylor Swift shirt walked up, asked to see my text message, and gave us the passes...It was OFFICIAL.

We got down there, and I'm not gonna lie, I totally teared up. It was so incredibly surreal. I looked out at the same view Taylor sees every night of her tour; the crowd. I could touch the stage from where I was words can completely describe what I was feeling or what was going through my mind at that moment, other than I had the time of my life. The energy is so much more vibrant at the pit, because you feel like you're part of the show.

Here's a video of my night! :)

Some Thoughts From Me

I'm really not all that complicated; I'd like to think I'm complex, but I'm not really that complicated. I'm quiet; but I'm also outgoing. There isn't much that I won't share... I'm a pretty open book! The more honest I am, the better I feel. Sometimes, I'm a little too open, because as sad as it is, you cant trust everyone these days, and I feel the need to pull back before I get hurt.
I have flaws, many of them, and who doesn't? But for so long, I've tried to be "perfect" which is impossible, because it doesn't exist. I get anxious, I'm impatient, my voice shakes when I'm nervous, I let small things bug me, I know how to put myself in a bad mood, i get distracted easily, i can be forgetful, i feel insecure at times, and I get mad over the dumbest things. I'm working on them!
I feel like people underestimate me and what I can do and one of these days I'll prove them all wrong, because I was made for so much more!!

When's Christmas Break?

School's going good! I mean, about as much as it can, I guess...but it's probably the most overwhelming workload I've had since my Senior year of high school. I like the people in my classes and my teachers, however, it's EVERY DAY, so it's kind of tiring! I'm behind in math, because lately I've become great at procrastinating...but everything else is going fine!
There's just a lot going on in my mind right now....
