Channelling My Inner Serena Van Der Woodsen

Hello!  I hope you are all having a lovely day, or night, whenever you may be reading this!  So I thought I would do something a little different today.  I am going to talk a little bit about what’s been going on in my life for the past few months.

 

So I’ve already told you about high school, and losing friends.  Because my friends and I drifted, it’s been hard to make new friends.  The last few months of 2012 were really difficult for me.  I was so sick and tired of everyone and how nobody would ever pay attention to me.  Unfortunately, it’s the way society works, at least for fourteen year olds.  If you are not interesting or funny, I promise, hardly anyone will like you.  It blows.  I have always been very shy and awkward around strangers, and people that I’ve first met.  Because of this, nobody ever really wanted to befriend me because it seemed like there was nothing special about me.  The one friend that I kept during high school was the only one that actually saw me open up.  It was REALLY hard losing all of those friends, and I expected high school to be better with new people.  I thought I was going to have at least two or three really good friends, but that’s not the way high school works.  If you want someone’s attention, you have to get it.  You socially cannot live high school without being outgoing.  Along with being shy, I am very awkward and quirky.  Whenever I was talking to someone, all I could think about was how uncomfortable I was, and how awkward I was talking, until I would just give up, and only talk to that person if they talked to me.

The new semester has been a real change.  I have learned to be more comfortable around people, and be really friendly.  You have to get completely out of your comfort zone, which I was not willing to do before.  Ask people questions.  Talk to them first. This is going to sound way too cheesy, and I apologize in advance, but I think watching Gossip Girl did this to me.  Serena Van Der Woodsen has inspired me to be more comfortable and less awkward.  She was always a very charming, approachable character, and I wanted to be her so badly.  I am completely aware she is just a character in a drama TV show, and she’s fake and perfect, but her qualities were real.  She always smiles when she talks to someone, and acts like she’s known them for years.

Before I go, I just wanted to say that I am sorry for being gone for this long again….ugh.  But, I am working on an exciting DIY tomorrow, and that will be posted sometime over the weekend.  Thank you guys so much for reading!  Have a good Easter weekend!

Talk soon.

Happy One Year & Thank You

Hey guys!  One year ago today I made this blog….woah!  I have changed so much since then, and I appreciate every one of you for just supporting me and following me!  I always try to do exciting posts and it doesn’t always work out that way…I feel like I am always putting out dates for things, and not following through.  Thank you for sticking through that!  I have enjoyed this so much!  It started out with just being a blog about myself, but then morphed into crafts, beauty, fashion, and my life.  My grade seven english teacher actually suggested that I should start a blog, so huge thanks to her!  I love writing, especially things that I’m interested in at the moment.  I feel like I am a positive person because I remind myself of exciting things, and writing these posts gets me so happy just thinking about certain topics, like Christmas!!  Haha, anyways, if you guys have ANYTHING at all that you would like me do write about, please let me know!  I also appreciate every one of you for the past little bit.  I haven’t been posting nearly as much as in the summer time, obviously because I’m at school all day and have homework and other things to do.

SO.  Thank you, thank you, thank you, for sticking with my extremely exaggerated, quirky personality.

Happy one year.

Liv’s Life: A Totally Random Thought.

Hello!

So it’s like 11 at night right now, and I just wanted to tell you something before I forget!  You know how I’ve been talking about Pinterest a ton lately?  Well, I have found like the weirdest thing ever.  Looking at all of my saved pins that are on my boards makes me smile!?  Why?  I don’t know.  But I highly recommend making one!  I don’t know!  I guess it’s because like everything I like is on my boards, and looking at a combination of that gives like the most satisfying feeling!  Haha.  Anyways.  Do you like these little one topic posts?  Let me know!  Any requests for posts before I go away?  I’ll talk to you tomorrow!  Goodnight!  (:
