Exams, crushes, lack of blogging and other nonsense.

First off, I just have to apologize for my lack of posting the past week or so.

We just finished up a semester at school and had our final exams yesterday and today.
I did decent... not nearly as good as I had hoped though. But oh well, you win some, you lose some right?

In other news... I feel like, at nearly 16, it's okay to actually talk about my so-called 'love life'.
I think I've got some great 20-something followers that would give me very helpful advice. ;) Not to go too much into detail, but I'm going over to my friend D's house Saturday, and we're going to watch a couple movies, and he may even teach me how to play the drums. :O Haha, that was a joke. But anyway, I'm super nervous. Which I know is normal, but still, it's annoying nonetheless. And the bad thing is, when I get nervous, I get super shaky, and I talk really fast. It's embarrasing! Do you guys have any tips on how to subdue the nerves?

Other than that... just wanted to share some great photos I came across today.

And hey, one of me for good measure. :D

Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday!


  1. Oh girl, I remember the nerves! Luckily, they calm down the older you get :) Before you get together, try to channel your energy into something productive or something that will take all your focus to accomplish it (cleaning, running, shopping... or just window shopping!) but not anything like homework - you won't be able to concentrate THAT much! Sitting around and watching TV or something similar will only get you more nervous! And remember, he's probably just as nervous as you are (seriously!) and everything that you think is really obvious about how nervous you are, he probably won't even notice. He'll be too busy making sure HE'S coming off well! Take a deep breath and concentrate on speaking more slowly if you feel yourself talking too fast. Most importantly, have fun, relax, and be yourself!

  2. Wow, thank you so much for the advice! That is awesome. I never thought about doing something like that (running, cleaning, whatever) beforehand, to calm the nerves. I am SO going to do that! Thanks so much!
