Day 5 of 365

Posted a day late again, but it’s still yesterday’s post. Enjoy.

Today, January 5th of 2015, I watched the entire “Twilight” saga.

Do us, average teenage girls, ever get tired of chick flicks? No, not really. We do get tired of cliché endings, and same old plots, though. However, romantic gestures never get by unannounced; we dream of our significant other going through such lengths to declare their love for us. Lame, I know. Whatever.

With this in mind, I can bear chick flicks. Handsome main characters, and their cleaver phrases give me butterflies. Yet, they’re not movies I would purposely watch. Nicholas Sparks, and John Green are a little too over-rated for me. (The Last Song and The Fault in Our Stars are exceptions, though. Love them!)

Twilight, doesn’t drain me as much, to be honest. I mean, sure, there’s cheesy lines and kisses that last too long, but they always know how to keep me entertained. Robert’s pale makeup, Taylor’s drool-worthy abs, and Kristen’s constant pained expression are what makes this movie what it is. It’s filled with Vampire-Warewolf action, yet there’s always doubt wether Edward and Bella’s relationship is going to last- or even going to survive, because Jacob is always getting in the way. How exciting!

I’ve read the books a couple of times, and watched the movies more than 10 times each. Still can’t decide which is my favorite.

[I feel embarrassed, because I didn’t even have to Google these. I know them by heart.]

“I’d never given much though about how I was going to die, but dying in the place of someone I know seems like a good way to go.” – Opening line of the “Twilight” book and movie.

“Childhood is not from birth to a certain age. And at a certain age, the child is grown and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.” -Opening line of the “Breaking Dawn” book and movie.

[Corny, but I absolutely love them. I can recite the entire movies. Just saying.]


Day 4 of 365

Today, January 4th of 2015, nothing is going on.

After dropping off my brother at the airport at 3 in the morning, we came back home to sleep. I cried ‘till 4 am, because I missed him already. Insomnia hit me hard, and I wasn’t able to fall asleep until 6 in the morning. I woke up at noon. I feel nothing.

Perhaps, today is the day I’ll figure out how I’ll raise enough money to go to Paris with my sister, for a month. Summer is 6 months away, but I’m broke, so. Maybe I’ll set up my schedule, so I can continue going to French class.

I don’t know, today just seems uneventful.

..Should I make it eventful?

Day 3 of 365

This didn’t post earlier for some reason. This is supposed to be yesterday’s post.

Today, January 3rd of 2015, I had a nice day.

My brother and I woke up at noon. My mother made us Mickey Mouse shaped waffles for a late breakfast. My sister and I played Wii for a couple of hours, and after a while, my brother joined us. I may, or may have not, chocked on air out of laughter, and extreme amusement.
For dinner, my grandmother, aunt, and cousins, decided to grace us with their presence. Right after they left, we watched a movie. “Jack Ryan” to be exact. God bless Chris Pine.

Anyways, it was my brother’s last day here. He only came home for the holidays. He lives in Phoenix, where he works in something he loves, and is now building a life of his own.

As hard as it is, I have now grown accustomed to seeing him only a couple of times a year. And even if I wish he’d be around more often, he is old enough to live by himself. Sometimes you need to let things take their natural course, in order to obtain a bigger benefit. His happiness is my benefit.
I love him very much, and I hope nothing, but the best for him. He deserves it.



Day 2 of 365

Today, January 2nd of 2015, I was not feeling that great about myself. Between physical and psychological insecurities, it wasn’t the best combination. I dragged my feet through the floor, with no form of motivation whatsoever, the entire morning. It sucks. Believe me, I know. I had the chance to set up my dates to Driver’s ED, which I’ve been stoked for, for a while, and even then, I went with a long face.

On the car ride home, some of my favorite songs were playing on the radio. It definitely turned my day around. I love music, and nothing makes me as happy as singing along horribly to my top tunes.

I guess that’s the lesson of the day. Everybody has good and bad days, and nobody is going to force you to feel the opposite way. You make the change yourself. Even if it’s hard, you need to find the motivation to bring yourself up, cause nobody is going to do it for you.

My advise (if you want to take it) is, if you’re feeling blue: Take a deep breath, remember everything you need to be grateful for because we sometimes forget, get distracted with something that makes you happy or keeps you busy, and never concentrate on the bad things, or if you just need a good cry, you should. It’s healthy, and all of us need it at some point.

The key to days like this, is to never feel like you’re alone, because you’re not. We all go through the same feelings, just not the same situations. We need to remind ourselves of this every time we are feeling down.

This song, was one of the many that was playing earlier on the radio. It seemed to have fit the situation perfectly.
