I know you haven’t heard from me in well over a month. I don’t really have time to blog as much this school year as I did last year to be honest. I’ve been pretty busy with school and whatnot. I’ll come home and do my homework and by the time that’s done I’m ready for a shower and bed. I’ve kept up here with Instagram photos from time to time, but that’s pretty much it. I wish I had more time for blogging and putting things in my queue and updating all of you, but it’s hard to find time for it! My senior year of high school is crazier than I thought it would be.
I’ve been doing well though! In the past month or so I’ve been doing well in school. I was so excited for the month of October and I had 3 separate costume-related events so I was Bella Swan for one, Olive Oyl for another, and then a ventriloquist doll for the third. I’ve been eating pumpkin flavored things like there’s no tomorrow. Pumpkin Pop Tarts, pumpkin flavored frozen yogurt, pumpkin cheesecake, and I don’t plan on stopping until it gets to December and I start eating peppermint everything.
I went to The Avett Brothers concert! It honestly was a last minute decision, I decided to go the night before because believe it or not my ex-boyfriend asked me if I wanted to go with him to it and I went. It was actually the Cleartwater Jazz Holiday, just a festival, so they played for a little over 2 hours. It was so great, oh my goodness. They played January Wedding—one of my absolute favorite favorite songs by them—and we stood there and got as close as we could and I was in borderline tears. Such a beautiful song, beautiful band, everything. I still can’t believe I finally saw them live. Our whole ride there my ex and I were just like “Oh my goodness, we’re ACTUALLY going to see them. We really are! It’s been so long that we’ve been listening to them, we’re ACTUALLY going to see them!” And then we were just in awe and the whole ride home it was “Oh my goodness, we ACTUALLY saw them! We actually heard their voices live, they were not far away from us, they were great, we actually saw them.” It was so great.
I saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower movie! I thought it was absolutely wonderful, I was crying the whole entire time. I was so hesitant about it for the longest time because how could you make that book into a movie and get it right, but it was. I thought the whole cast did a great job, I was thrilled.
Oh, I thought you guys might appreciate this! So in AP Lit we get to read an “independent novel” and I have some books in mind that were approved by my teacher and then some that came from her list of suggested books:
- Water for Elephants
- The Lovely Bones
- The Bell Jar
- The Memory Keeper’s Daughter
- Fahrenheit 451
I know, I know. I’ve already read The Lovely Bones, Fahrenheit 451, and The Bell Jar, but I think it might be nice to reread one and get a fresh perspective. I might just go for Water for Elephants, but I’m not sure. What book would you read?
I bought a pair of brown boots! The lace up kind with the zipper on the side. I feel like I shouldn’t call them combat boots or anything, but they’re a pair I got from Target about a week or so ago and they’re my new favorite thing. They’re really comfortable and look great with a lot of different outfits, which I was kind of hesitant about before buying them. You know, I’m buying boots, but what kind of things do I wear them with. But they look great! I love them.
Oh, last but not least, I’ve been hyperventilating about One Direction 24/7 so don’t be surprised to see lots of One Direction posts tonight, tomorrow, or any other day. I can’t even elaborate on the topic because I’ll start freaking out and fangirling and I’ll start rambling (I wish I was kidding, but I’m not.)
But alright! That’s a pretty much condensed version of what’s been going on in the past month or so without having to go into every little day to day detail. Thanksgiving break starts this Friday for me (also I turn 18 next week on the 22nd, can you believe it?!) , so I would like to say that I’ll have lots of time for blogging and catching up, but I don’t want to speak too soon just in case I’ll be swamped with online work. I’ll try as best I can! In the meantime feel free to follow me on Twitter or Instagram (carlynnvictoria) to keep up with me daily!
