I love running it with other people in case I’m too busy to actively post on it. But I don’t have the ability to follow my own blogs on there and stuff because it’s co-owned. I just have to work with who I follow on my daybrightener account. And for those of you who know me, I don’t like to mass follow. I follow very few people on all of my accounts.
I want to clear a few things up. First, this does not mean that I won’t be posting in my co-owned blog. I still will be! Second, I realize that this URL doesn’t make much sense. I’ll change it when I feel like it. I wanted to be 16augusts or 5oceans, but both were taken. :(
I can’t believe I’ve been on here for two years already. But I’m so glad that I discovered this site. I’m not even sure what I’d be like if I didn’t have this space to just sit down and think. Tumblr’s changed who I am, as cheesy as that sounds. It’s allowed me to really get all of my thoughts out, even if no one wants to listen. Tumblr’s allowed me to grow as a person. Even though I’m still not comfortable with sharing my blog with everyone, I don’t think I’ll ever be ready for that. I just feel like Tumblr has given me a chance to become who I want to become, inspiring me along the way and letting me talk to the most interesting and sweetest people I’ve ever encountered.
I’ve been on Tumblr since the good ol’ days of Tumblarity. (Does anyone remember that? Haha. I still haven’t quite figured out how that worked.) I’ve been here for so long that my dashboard doesn’t automatically load new pages—I have “Next Page” and “Previous Page” buttons. I was here when things like “Tumblr famous” and posts with 100,000+ notes didn’t exist.
Overall, I’m just saying, that I’m so glad that a website like Tumblr even exists. I’m not sure where I’d be without a place like this to get everything cleared out from my mind.
I’m sorry if I’ve been MIA these past few days. I’m really trying to get started on all of my assignments, but I end up just sleeping instead, lol. I’ve gotten very little sleep these past few days and basically every time I start my work, I fall asleep instead. I’m currently trying to finish chapter 1 of chem, so I’ll be on later. :)
This is why I can’t trust people. This is why I hold back so much. This is why I don’t tell people secrets. Because who can I tell? Who can I even go to when I’m feeling bad? Who can I trust with everything? Basically no one.
My friends are just friends. I feel as if I have more acquaintances than actual friends. Because friends are supposed to support you no matter the circumstances. Friends aren’t supposed to snap at you when you try to build them up. Friends are supposed to be the people who you go to when you feel like falling down. And friends certainly aren’t supposed to backstab or make you feel worthless.
I don’t forget what people say to me or about me. I don’t forget the instances in my life where all I’ve wanted to do was cry. I may forgive, but I don’t ever forget.
So today was our first real match for tennis. I ended up being paired with Iris!
We kind of rival the team we played against today. We’ve been losing against them for the past few years, and they’re in our district, so today was pretty nerve-wracking. Iris and I won our first set 6-1, which was really nice. But then we lost the next set 3-6. It turns out that all of the varsity doubles split sets. >__<.
So by the time we were in the middle of our 3rd set, the rest of varsity was off and watching, along with the coaches and a few former seniors. It was intense. I heard my coach say during the match that our game would decide if we beat the other team or not. We ended up winning the set 6-3. It would’ve been 6-2, but the other team cheated on one of my shots. Oh well, cheating gets you nowhere in life.
But we won!! And now we can go to volunteer tomorrow since our coaches were so happy. :’D
Finish annotating a 200 page book, reading and annotating two 300 page books, reading a 330 page book, memorizing two maps of Europe, reading and doing problems for 5 chapters of chemistry, and doing problems for calc, all in two weeks?
Apparently there was a 5.8 earthquake in Virginia, and a lot of the east coast felt it, too. Here, we’re not supposed to get earthquakes, so when it happened, I had no idea what was going on. I first thought I was delusional…and then I thought someone was breaking into my house. It was scary. ;~; And we only felt the aftermath!
But my very first earthquake. They should make Hallmark cards or something for this.
I just don’t consider either genre really music. I’m more into alt rock and sometimes indie. Some of the bands/singers I’m into are a mix of pop and alt rock, so I listen to them, too. But half the time I list my favorite artists, no one knows who they are unless they’ve had a hit that’s been on the top 10 on iTunes.
Like how many of you have legitimately listened to Brighten, Two Door Cinema Club, Needtobreathe, The Verve Pipe, Angels & Airwaves, Jimmy Eat World, or Hellogoodbye?
So we had a scrimmage today in tennis! My partner and I won 6-2, 7-6 (4). The second set really shouldn’t have been that close, but we were thrown off by their cheating. Anyhow, we also ended up having to take a team photo (yes, on our very first day). And if you don’t go to my school, the uniform for tennis are tank tops. And I’ve been wearing t-shirts all summer, hello farmers tan! XD And to make it worse, I’m fairly certain I got burnt on both shoulders, and a new tan line is already forming. Yay! But anyway, hopefully we have classes together. :D This year I know at least 1 person in every single one of my classes. :’D
