I am so, so, so, so, sorry it’s been this long! So ridiculous! But, I’ve started a new semester, and it’s been so full force all February. In all of my classes I’ve had multiple tests/quizes/assignments, and I have been reading To Kill A Mockingbird for class, which I have just finally finished. I know, I know, no excuses….but sometimes school life just tends to take over! On top of all of this I have headaches a few times a week, so that kills everything, and I have other things I have to do as a part of a daily routine.
Another thing to apologize for…a lack of ‘me’ posts. I’m not sure how much you guys like my update posts (just about me), but I think it’s important to do them once in a while, and it is where my blog started. I have been writing in a journal almost everyday since October, and I have just been expressing lots of deeper thoughts into it, and then posting more DIY & Fashion posts on here. I don’t always feel like writing about me on my blog and then repeating everything but in a more personal manner in my ‘diary’. But that’s not the point of this post….
I just wanted to share some things that I’ve been doing, and some favourites!
So I have probably mentioned a few times in my posts that I have not been very good emotionally & mentally the past few months. High school has hit me hard. It’s not just the school work, (I can deal with that), it’s the people. Going into high school, I lost the majority of my friends purely because we didn’t have any classes together. We drifted. And since just recently I always was waiting for people to talk to me. Well, apparently that’s not how life works, and if you want something you have to get it. At least for fourteen year olds. So, I’ve branched out. Olivia’s OUTGOING!? What!? Not exactly ‘outgoing’, but not so quiet. I have never been outgoing because I never want to disrupt the teacher during class, but it’s just the little things….partaking into a conversation with people you don’t know can really pay off. YOU broke the ice, and they will remember YOU for it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a very awkward person, and I’m trying to deal with that. It’s just now that I’ve really realized that I have to change myself a little (in a good way) to get some people to like me (the real me). So, yeah, that’s what I’ve been dealing with daily.
Apart from ‘the deep end’, I’ve been still watching lots of british youtubers and stuff like that. They are hilarious, and I, admittingly, am a ‘Zalfie’ lover. Zoe and Alfie are my favourites, and I feel like they are in the early stages of when I watched Luke & Ingrid’s daily vlogs. Hehe. I also have been tumbling a bit, which you can see here! I love tumblr! It’s really inspirational and I have gotten many ideas from there. I also just love to go an look on my page sometimes and see what I’ve reblogged. It’s sort of like my life in pictures, but not my pictures….if that makes sense…
Another thing that has been taking up a bit of my life is my room! I changed my room up a month ago, and since then have not stopped doing things to it and searching for future projects to do. I am going to do my macaron painting, which I have already started drawing, get a bulletin board, move some things around, get two new pieces of furniture, and a quote board! I will absolutely be doing an updated room tour because A LOT has changed surprisingly for only about two months since my last one.
I have been listening to soooooo much music lately, you would not believe it! I guess I just haven’t updated you with my favourite songs for a while now, so I am going to start with my music favourites of the moment. Long Live by Taylor Swift has definitely made it’s way on the list. It makes me a little more positive about going to high school everyday. I read that it is a song about her band full of average people becoming ‘the populars’ once they’re on stage, but I think it’s more of a graduation song to be honest! I hope I still like it 3.5 years from now in my senior year! Haha, I didn’t buy it for like a week because I was convincing myself that I had to wait until I was graduating, but that is just ridiculous. Yep.
I’ve started reading “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”, and was searching up advertisements for the movie, and noticed there was a song I really liked, so I bought it. Haha, not really how to explain how I purchase my music sounding exciting. I went to iTunes, searched the title, and bought it. So exciting! It’s “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons. It’s just one of those songs that you’ve probably heard before, just never thought twice about it.
The last song I have to talk about it ‘Sympathy’ by The Goo Goo Dolls. When I was little, I was a MASSIVE Hilary Duff fan, and of course I have watched A Cinderella Story probably thirty times in my lifetime, and I always thought the soundtrack was AMAZING! Good job, song-pickers! This song is one I have always admired in the movie, never forgot about it, just never thought to buy it. But I did and I like it! I also have been thinking about getting “I’ll Be” and “Hear You Me” both from that movie, but I’m not too sure.
So, I just wanted to say thank you for reading and sticking with me…with March Break (and summer!) on it’s way, I will be posting more frequently I’m sure. Plus, with the spring & summer weather comes spring & summer themed posts! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Talk soon!
