My eyes scan across the page. My eyebrows furrow as I desperately attempt to remember anything pertaining to what the question is asking. The book thumps as I toss it aside, uncompleted as I’m already reaching for the laptop. My eyes are blinking back tears. My thought process? I can’t finish the homework-heck, I can barely begin […]Read More Inadequacy
I got yelled at today. By two teachers. I know, I know; it’s not an end-everything moment. But for a student who’s tried to maintain the best standard in school with my grades and teachers, it hurt. A lot. Especially since it mostly wasn’t even my fault. But let me start from the beginning. (Please […]Read More Confessions of a Scared, Guilt-Ridden Teenager
The time was 1:40 a.m. I had just finished my homework and was heading downstairs to print everything when I decided to take a look outside. My mom told me it had snowed, and that we might have a school delay tomorrow, but I hadn’t put too much faith in it because no snow days […]Read More Late Night Ramblings of a Sleep Deprived High-Schooler
So life has been kind of rough lately. College deadlines are fast approaching, grade pressures are at an all time high, and anxiety permeates every part of my and other senior’s lives. I’ve been feeling like crap for the past few days and have cried more than I have in the past few months combined…and […]Read More Life…Purpose and Direction
Ah, the woes of tumblr. For some, a perfectly normal and probably versatile site. For others (teenage girls and boys), it can be a highly addicting place of riots and fangirling. This may need some explanation. A couple months ago, I made myself an account on tumblr. When I first made it, I didn’t really […]Read More Tumblr (He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named?)
Hypocritical, I know. I AM a teenager. But seriously, sometimes my generation gets me very bothered. (For example, after the East coast earthquake EVERY persons status was a variation of “ahhh, earthquake!” It’s like, thank you, I really needed to hear that from each and every one of you to understand the seriousness >.>) […]Read More Teenagers Annoy Me
School’s finally out and now it’s summertime! Honestly, every year I end up spending more time on the computer or watching t.v. than doing something worthwhile. And come on, every year we all tell ourselves that ‘this year is going to be different! This year I will have the best summer ever!’ only to end […]Read More Summer Has Begun!
I just took my very first AP test. I wasn’t sure how I would do, but let’s just say that my agenda had the word death in it for the day of the exam… I’m not allowed to disclose any information about the test, but I think I did okay! I may have messed up […]Read More I’M ALIVE!
This has to be the most insignificant thing I’ve ever discussed. Yesterday I took a nap. Normally I don’t take naps; I don’t really like them. You wake up and it’s suddenly dark outside, you’re completely disoriented, and very groggy. At least, that’s how I am whenever I take them. And yet for some reason […]Read More Napping?
Yesterday my mom started yelling at me. It was quite random, actually. She suddenly decided I needed to vacuum my room and out of nowhere, started yelling about how I do nothing all the time. She said I needed to clean my room and ranted about how she was doing all the work by moving […]Read More My Mom and I
