A Fresh Start: Wanderlust

I've been doing something. Dangerous, I know. But... I think it's time to retire this blog.

The purpose of this blog was to give some insight on what it's like to go through highschool and be a teenager and all the trials and tribulations teenagers face. Well. Come September I'll no longer be a teenager. I'll be 20. OH DEAR LORD I'M SO OLD.


But this blog has gotten away from it's original purpose. And it has been for a while now. So, I've decided to focus on something else. Trying to update and redo this blog would be difficult and altering it from it's original purpose would be confusing. So instead I've decided to start fresh.

Yup. That's my new blog. It will of course detail my thoughts, my adventures, but also my desire to travel and the experiences I have on the road. I'll move over some of the best posts. And this blog will remain as an archive of times past. But it's time to move on.

It's been fun. If you need me, I'll be pouring over maps, clicking through travel tips, and sharing the results over on Wanderlust. I'll never be more than a click away. Thanks to the readers (especially you Mom), and to all those who made this a journey.

I Want to be in a Movie

I want to be in a movie. Not necessarily the lead. Though that would be... Fabulous? Terrific? Mind-boggling? Astounding? Astounding. That would be just astounding to be the lead. I've always loved being on the stage. Whether it be dance, or musicals, or band performances... I just love that thrill.

I've never really been in a big production. I did a lot of choreography and sewed, well, almost all the costumes for my school's production of The King and I when I was a freshmen. I was the Fan Dancer.

I know. I know. I'm just inches away from international stardom with that one. Or not. Maybe let's just forget high school ever happened, yeah? Yeah.

I just think it would be amazing to be part of something so big. Even if all it meant for me was .7 seconds of me jabbing the screen and screaming, "THERE I AM! THERE I AM! THEREIAMOMIGODI'MAMOVIESTAR!!" And promptly passing out from sheer euphoria. Can we just all picture that for a moment? 'Cause I'm laughing so hard at the thought of that I'm making some weird hiccuping/chortling/death rattle sort of noise. I may be laughing but let's be honest. That's exactly how I would react.

So if you're a famous director or talent agent or someone not a creeper in the acting business, seriously. Get in touch. We need to talk. 'Cause you have no idea how much talent this girl has. And please, please forget about that awful picture up there. I was 14 what did you expect? But it's all good. I'll even make it easy for you. Just email me right... here! 'Cause I'm ready for my callback.

Emotional Trauma at the Hands of a Paperback

Books. I like the way they smell. I like the way I can never turn the page fast enough. I like the way I can't focus on class or work or anything until I've finished its story. But often I find myself feeling lost for a while as I try to reconcile my loss.

Yeah. That pretty much sums it up.

As I devour books as fast as possible, I've found myself in a bit of a bind. I'm running out of books to read. Like, at the speed of light. So I joined Goodreads. And I started rating books and getting recommendations and I have to say... it's quite fabulous. Books are recommended for you based on ratings you've given to ones you've already read. You can write reviews, join reading groups, set up your to-read list, follow your favorite authors, check out what books are hot now and what books to be looking out for. If you're an avid reader, seriously, why aren't you signed up yet.

Wanna see what I've been reading, like and dislike, what's on my to-read list or recommend a book for me, you can find me right here!
