new do.

I got a hair cut! I've been in need of one for at least 3 months, but I haven't had a chance to do it. My split ends were getting so nasty, I would just sit in class and pick at them, which was entertaining for me, but probably gross and rude for everyone else. So, since it's break, I took the chance and made a big change. My hair was as long as it's ever been... like in my whole life. I've had really short hair since I was a little girl, like, creepy short. As I grew up, I started growing it out, but I always get bored with it looking the same, so I always cut it off in lieu of continuing to grow it. And, this time was no exception. I wanted a drastic change, so I cut off 7 inches! I also got side bangs and lots of layers. It's so much different and I love it! Since sophomore year, I've been getting blonde highlights like twice a year, but I was getting kind of tired of that too, so I got lowlights this time instead. They're black-brown and auburn and they made my hair look a lot darker, it's crazy! Adam is going to be really surprised by it when he gets back. Hopefully he likes it! But if not.... not a whole lot that can be done!

Jesus is born! I had a wonderful Christmas with my family.... dinner last night with my cousins and aunt and uncle then midnight mass with my dad and the Kornfeld's since mom was cantoring. Between the two, we opened family gifts where I got a trip to Disney! I'm so sooo excited to start planning it. Then I got to sleep in this morning since mom had to cantor another mass and wasn't home til 10:20 anyway. When she got home we ate breakfast then Adam came to say goodbye before he leaves for Rome in the morning. I'm trying really hard to stay positive about that.... but that's a different story. We opened gifts in the early afternoon and I got mostly stuff that I picked out on Black Friday, plus a few things like Beats by Dr. Dre headphones (pink of course) and a picture collage frame. My dad made a wonderful dinner for us, pork loin, party potatoes and carrot casserole, and Meghan came over to eat with us! I've spent the rest of the day jamming to music and planning our Disney trip... so far we've set a tentative date but are struggling to find a hotel that is in a good location but isn't going to be a bazillion dollars. It doesn't help that we're planning to go in a peak season because there isn't really another time that will work with our busy schedules. Regardless, I'm stoked to go to Disney (and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!) one final time before I go to college. Adam went in October and hearing all about his trip has made me more eager than ever to go. So it's been a wonderfully anti-climatic Christmas, to be followed by a not-so-wonderfully anti-climatic Christmas break. I feel like Adam being gone is going to hit me hard, and it's difficult for me to plan things to do because our schedule for cheer is totally up in the air. #firstworldproblems

tis the season.

I'm officially done with high school finals (unless something unusual happens...)! All of the end of the semester stuff has eaten up my time lately, so I haven't blogged, and now I'm not even sure what to say! Nothing too exciting has happened... Christmas is only a few days away though! We had our friend secret santa brunch today and I'm going to an ugly Christmas sweater party tonight, which should be fun! Other than that... seriously, I have a boring life.

My life has literally been taken over by stuff to do. I haven't bought a single Christmas present and I really can't forsee a time when that will happen. But at least I know what I'm getting for people for the most part. I wasted a lot of time tonight and reread my old blog posts. The recurring themes were blogging as a form of procrastination and me being busy. Nothing's changed this week. And to add to it, finals are next week to I need to start studying for those. Not cool bro. 

In other news, I just ate a cheeseburger and wrote two papers. I feel accomplished enough to quit for the night and go to sleep. So, goodnight world, I love you!

I haven't blogged in LONG time. But then again, I've been extraordinarily busy. I don't even really have time to be blogging right now, but I'm not sure when my next free moment will be. I just wanted to do a quick post to prove I haven't forgotten about my little bloggy. Everything's going well, there's just lots going on to get ready for Christmas and finals and all that jazz. ANDDD, I just got an email saying my iPhone has been shipped and is on its way!! Sooo excited!

Songs keeping me sane (because let's be honest, without my iPod, I'd be a much less agreeable person)...
1) Pictures of You - The Last Goodnight
2) Superman - Five for Fighting
3) Little Lies - David Barnes
4) Mother to the Moon - Jason Myles Goss

in my opinion, pointe is the most beautiful form of dance. i always wanted to be a pointe dancer but because of injuries and other problems, it never happened. the technique and skill required for it is astounding.

i went to see my school of dance's production of the nutcracker this weekend and it was fabulous!

I'm kind of an embarrassment of a human being. I had about 10 million things to accomplish this weekend and I did one of them. Story of my life. But, I have carefully allotted my time so that I will get everything done by its due date... except my full ride scholarship essay. I should have the most motivation to do that, right? However, since the chances of my winning are slim to none, I can't bring myself to spend the time writing it. In other news, I currently cannot feel my fingers because they are so cold. Such is my life.

Recently, I've been feeling really chill regardless of the fact that I have so much to do.. and I've been hardcore obsessing over random things. Here's the list.
1) Google Chrome Christmas mahjong - the number 1 cause of my procrastination.
2) Justin Bieber's Under the Mistletoe album - I usually hate Christmas music, but it's JB so what's not to like?
3) Jenna Marbles and Smosh youtube videos - self-explanatory, let's be honest.
4) Edward's toast at the wedding in Breaking Dawn - love the movie or hate it, what he says is super romantic... "It's an extraordinary thing to meet someone you can bare your soul to and they accept you for who you are. I've been waiting for what seems like a very long time to get beyond what I am and with you, I feel like I can finally begin... No measure of time with you will be long enough, but let's start with forever."
everything about this picture screams 'what the hell are you doing with your life maggie?'

black friday.

look at what I figured out how to do! mmmm, new sweater!
Yesterday was Thanksgiving and it was a wonderful day spent with my family. We went to my aunt and uncle's house in LeRoy for dinner and then just hung out and Adam came to meet the family for the first time! Then at midnight, my mom, Meghan and I went shopping! There were so so many people there and the lines were ridiculous... but we ended up saving a ton of money, so it was worth it. We especially got a lot of movies and bath type stuff, which is wonderful for me. My family has always had a really small movie collection and we usually have to rent anything that I'd want to watch, but now we actually have some really good ones! We got home at around 5:30 and then I went straight to sleep. I woke up around 10:30, so although I didn't get a great nights sleep, it'll have to suffice, because I get to go meet a lot of Adam's family tonight! Right now, I'm vegging and listening to the Mitch Hansen Band... which is totally random, but I'm feeling it at the moment. Don't judge me too hard.

I guess it's not technically my birthday anymore... but my day was too packed with goodness to blog during it! I'm super tired so I'm just gonna give you a super speedy run down. Basically, Adam had a day full of surprises planned for me and so it was super wonderful! I am so spoiled by him and my family, it's ridiculous. I got to spend a lot of the day with my wonderful parents too, so I'm a happy legal adult. So far I haven't done anything that I wouldn't have been able to yesterday... to be honest, I doubt I will anytime in the near future. In the spirit of thanksgiving, which is technically today, I'm so thankful for my parents, boyfriend and best friends. I don't know where I'd be without them. I don't know what I did to be so blessed, but I feel lucky to have them in my life.

dude, i got the j.biebs christmas album from my mama. and adam gave me j.biebs action figures. greatest thing evah.

Weeelll, today is our seven month anniversary... but we didn't do anything exciting.. I actually didn't even get to see him. But that's a-okay because tomorrow is my BIRTHDAYYY! In my family, birthdays are a really big deal, so I get really excited about it. Hopefully it'll be a wonderful day spent with my family and Adam, plus I have enough school to get to see my friends, but no classes or anything. I have to read at mass though... which always freaks me out a little bit. Today's blog is sheerly out of boredom. Literally, I'm so bored I cleaned my room. You know how often that happens? Never. And then I plucked my eyebrows. And then I wrote a scholarship essay. And then I bought music on iTunes. And then I read a book. And then I wasted time on the internet. And now I'm here. I clearly don't handle free time well. Ugh... oh well. Such is life I suppose!

look a kitty!

best days.

I survived the crazy week! I have scholarships riding on me pretty hard so I should probably finish those... but I don't want to! Last night was my birthday party, which was fabulous! I know I've said this before, but I literally have the best friends ever. Like, I honestly don't know what I would do without them. So that was wonderful and then we went to see Breaking Dawn, which I actually thought was really good! I mean, I laughed at some of the parts that were supposed to be serious... but that's okay. Overall, I think I may have liked it better than the actual book and it's definitely the best of the movies. Today I hung out with my grandma for her birthday and then hung out with Meggggo. Tonight, Adam came over and we watched HP pt. 2. Not gonna lie, it was a strugg to stay awake since I saw Breaking Dawn at midnight last night. But I ate pizza and desserts, so everything is goood. Tomorrow is gonna be really rough for me... we'll see how it goes. It's almost my birthday though, so I'm super psyched!

birthday dinner!

these girls keep me sane. or at least, more sane than i would normally be.

my new blanket from aly and meghan! ignore the hot mess look...

rent pandora.

I.Love.Pandora.So.Much. My weekend has been soundtracked by pandora. Not gonna lie, I've shaped some fabulous stations. The very best is my Hey There Delilah station... I've had it the longest and have put a lot of likes/dislikes into it so it almost unfailingly will play a song I love. Recently, I made a Taylor Swift station that plays almost the exact same things as my Hey There Delilah station, but with some added TSwizzle and Carrie Underwood. My pride and joy of the moment though would have to be my Rent station. It's been playing non-stop Rent, Wicked and Hairspray music for me for the last 3 hours with an occasional Disney song too. It's definitely going to be the thing that gets me through my outrageously busy week. But before I go into that, I'll give you a quick weekend recap...

On Saturday, I went with my mom and dad out to my grandma's house and talked with her for a while before we took her out to lunch. After that, I went to Barnes and Noble with Laura and we looked at NYC guide books (planning for our graduation trip!!) and did crossword puzzles/looked at magazines! That night, we went to U-High for the Orchesis Intercity Dance Company's fall recital. It was soo so good! Some of the dances were kind of sketchy, but in general, I was really impressed! Then, this morning, I slept in, ate a muffin and went to church. The highlight of my day though was hanging out with Adam and his six year old sister. We ate sandwiches and watched the Phineas and Ferb movie and the three of us cuddled. Once that was over, we watched a Care Bears movie and let me just tell you, that show is weird as fuck. They all went into the forest of feelings and talked about their problems.. I'm convinced that it was either written by psychologists or a bunch of people who were really really high. Then we played some games, which was especially fun for me since I was an only child and didn't really have people to play games with when I was her age. The rest of my night was spent reading Frankenstein and writing scholarship essays. Oh boy... life is exciting.

This week is literally going to eat me alive. Tomorrow I have school, then choir, then a psychologist's appointment (yepp, I go see one of those, she's a live saver for sure), then cheer practice, then I'm probably going to spend a little time with Adam. Tuesday I have cheer practice and band cheer auditions (that's gonna go really really badly..). Wednesday is my cheer and dance night and then Thursday I have dance and the "Intercity cheerleader get-together"... doesn't that just sound like assloads of enjoyment? I don't think it does.. But, Friday is going to be my 18th birthday party! I'm really looking forward to spending time with my girls! Then who knows what'll happen next weekend... I know I'll be seeing Breaking Dawn. That's gonna be HILARIOUSSS.

Don't expect to hear too much from me in the near future... life shows no signs of slowing down. To make up for it, you get a shit ton of pictures that I found on weheartit. Like literally, a shit ton.

this one makes me laugh everytime

teehee, so cute! watched this movie todaaay

love this song.

It's 11.11.11! Obviously, this is a big deal. And of course I made a wish at 11:11 and I plan to make another one in a little over an hour. I've had several people ask me what I wished for, but clearly if I told them, it wouldn't come true. Today has been an un-extravagant day other than the fact that it's 11.11.11. After school today, I was in my garage cleaning my car (yes, I cleaned my car!) and when Meghan came over. She asked me if I had seen the protesters down the street. I clearly had not, so we chased after them, but couldn't catch up. Considering I live in a peaceful upper-middle class neighborhood, we don't get a lot of protests.. and by that I mean we don't ever have any. But there were a bunch of anti-war protesters there today for some reason. It was craaazy. Then I went to the fall play at school. Although the acting sucked ass, it was hilarious and I literally laughed through the entire thing. Soooo funny!

i'm so college.

Guess who's going to college. That's right, this kid riiiight here! I got into SLU! Yesterday I was literally jumping up and down and freaking out when I found out. And not only did I get in, but I got the highest merit scholarship possible! Weeeeeee! It's all really exciting for me!

In other news, it's officially winter outside. It is so effing cold I could cry. Right now, I'm cuddled up in my bed with like 20 layers on my body. But on the upside, it's supposed to snow tonight! I absolutely love snow. Every year, I ask for snow for my birthday... although no one can make it snow on November 23rd, I get really excited when it happens! Last year it actually did and I was ecstatic. So hopefully it will happen again this year. A snow day tomorrow would be so great but I know it won't happen. Ohhh well.

This week has been crazy. Monday I had cheer and Faith Forward then I went out for ice cream and hung out with Adam. Yesterday, Aly and I gave a presentation about Blanket Fairies for a group of old baptist ladies out of town, which was fun and exciting but took up the entire evening (plus we went out to Starbucks to celebrate my college acceptance!). Tonight I have cheeer and danceydance plus going to get foods with Meghan cause neither of us have any at our homes. Sad lives, I know. Tomorrow is actually a calm-ish night but I have to write a horror story for my AP Lit class. Not looking forward to that. At all. I'm so uncreative it's ridiculous and I hate scary movies and things so I lack ideas hardcore. We'll see how that goes... Then Friday is our school's play and Saturday is the intercity dance company's fall recital! Busy, but I'd rather be busy than have nothing to do!

helllllz yes imma billiken!

Monday, November 7, 2011


Weee! This is a really quick post before I leave for cheer and the rest of my exciting evening. Today was a really gloomy Monday outside, but it was an overall good day! I mean, my classes were boring as usual... but the rest of things were great! We got cap and gown order forms for graduation. That means it's real... which is really really scary for me. Especially since I haven't heard from SLU. God is really testing my patience with this one... and I'm about to lose my mind. In other news, my phone has been acting up and I'm getting really close to throwing it at a wall. Thank goodness my birthday is in 16 days. Speaking of which... anyone got good birthday party ideas? Cause I sure don't. Oh shit... I just realized I left my AP Lit homework at school.... guess I'll be going in early to work on that tomorrow. That sucks. It's not likely I would have actually worked on it tonight though... so it doesn't really matter I suppose. Pandora is playing my favorite mellow songs all in a row and its awesomeee... Fall for You, Hey There Delilah, Closer to Love, Imagine, Daughters... so much goodness!!

Even though I have about a million negative things on my mind, I'm really happy. Yesterday was an incredibly good day for me. I went out to lunch with Kristi (hi kristiiii, since i know you're reading thisss) at Buffalo Wild Wings, which is a long standing tradition for us. I hadn't hung out with her in FOREVER so it was good to catch up! Then I spent the afternoon printing out new pictures for my room (and I mean I literally printed probably over 50 pictures) and watching Grey's Anatomy with my daddy. It was wonderful! In the evening, I went with Adam, my incredible speech dominating boyfriend (he got first in SOS, again!) , to see his schools play. It was so much better than ours will be, but it was kind of dull. During the whole show, both of our stomachs were growling so we went and got pizza afterwards, but we were started out being the only people in the whole restaurant. And then when a big group of weird old people came, they sat riiiight behind us. So we spent the rest of the time being our strange selves and getting crazy looks from them. I laughed so hard it was ridiculous. Today I'm hanging out with Meggo, so things should continue to be on the up and up! Plus, with daylight savings, I got extra sleep, which is GREAT! Hopefully my good mood continues!!

i don't have any pictures from today... so you get more of meg and i from last weekend!
