In attempts to motivate myself in 2014, I have decided to create this blog to document each day of the year. Let's hope I survive.

Today was slightly better. I realized how much people care about me, which was good. I also realized that some people only care when I’m gone. Life is such a scary thing to already experience—there are so many opportunities for me and I have so much power for myself, yet I feel so restrained because of other people. I shouldn’t feel like that. People frighten me, but that is not right. They should not stop me from being who I am. These are already some lessons that I’m learning and it feels so good. I love it. That’s all I really want to say.
January 21st & 22nd, 2014
Honestly the past few days have been too intense. There’s a reason why I haven’t been posting lately. It was not because I was too lazy. I just didn’t want to remember and look back on the bad days. However, I think I have to. Without bad, we wouldn’t experience good. I broke my glasses and other things and I just cried a lot and things happened with my father that I just don’t want to go in depth in. Things are better now, though, and I just feel like I’m so much happier.
I also watched Frozen, that was a thing. That’s pretty much all I can remember.

If I’m being honest? it wasn’t a preferably a day in which I would wake up at 8 in the morning, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
So that’s what I did, and I went to Sam’s house before the photoshoot. Following the pit stop at her house, her sister drove us to Claremont for a little bit. We went into vintage shops and thrift stores like usual and ran into Vasthi, Amber, and Jessica. It was really funny.
After Claremont, we waited at the school for a while for the models and, and like always, some of them arrived late. One of our models was crowned a prince, too, so now it’s impossible.
We went to the Top of Day Creek and took some shots like the one in the photo above—except clearer.
It was good.

What a successful Disneyland trip! Considering the short amount of time that I had there, nine rides was pretty sufficient. It was unlike before. The rides were faster and more interesting and the atmosphere just seemed so much better. There were no worries, really. Other than the short scare I had with my pass, everything was perfect.
Lines were less than thirty for our all favorite rides—minus Tower of Terror. It seemed to go by so quickly. I honestly feel as if I conquered my Splash Mountain fear. We also went on Grizzly twice in a row. How crazy.
After beating the final call for Space Mountain, the ride was so scary I felt unsafe but also excited. We ended the night with some delicious McDonald’s and a various selection of music in Brandon’s car. We rocked out to Timber by Ke$ha as we attempted to beat my curfew of 1:00 AM.
And as we pulled into my driveway at 12:57 AM, I knew things were turning around for me. Who knew a Disney trip was all it took for me to become positive once more?

Not much to say about today. It was pretty alright. I tried to practice for the SAT but it was really hard. I couldn’t concentrate. I did the laundry and spent the day watching Frozen. It was peaceful.
I had a delicious dinner and watched One Direction. Now I’m the phone with Brandon.
All is good.

Me, Aditi, Sam, Julia // iPhone 5
Ah, yes. It was a test-filled day today. And I’m pretty sure I failed all of them. Lovely. On the bright side, the night was way better than expected. However, let’s start off with how incredibly difficult our vocabulary quiz was in English. I believe it’s unfair that we have to look up the synonyms on our own time. That’s way too much work for me. I have other, important tests to study for.
Kingsball court was announced today and, like what happened at homecoming, I had to take a chemistry test during the kidnap. We have two special-ed seniors on court, and it’s really sweet how our school voted for them. Other than that, we have our Student Body President (David), a Student Achievement member (Rene Collins), Parker, and Dennis. Congratulations to them.
After school, Insuh and I went to Aditi’s house before the game against our hardest competition, Etiwanda. We cuddled and laughed—as per usual.
The game was intense. Our spirits on the purple side were truly high. We chanted new chants and screamed at the top of our lungs—honestly, the cheesiest things you could imagine. It was an unfortunate ending, by five points that is. But nothing ever breaks the Rancho spirit.

my favorite place // canon rebel t2i (by sam)
It was such a refreshing day. Though the stressful times in yearbook have clearly arrived, there was nothing like a nice day with Brandon and Sam (and Taco Bell).
The most interesting moment that occurred was the introduction to gender equality in our English class. I have probably been waiting for this moment the second she had announced it on the first day of school. And even more now that I feel so much more educated with slut-shaming and double standards.
Also, I forced Brandon to buy a $54 sweater. I think it was an accomplishing day.
