I’m going to try to make this quick because if I write down all the thoughts in my head, it’ll get real deep, real fast, and we don’t have time for that. So I’ll summarize.
First, I have two blogs I just need to mention because they’re written by two very good friends of mine and I’m low-key obsessed with them so I feel weird that I haven’t mentioned them before. But on NYE I asked them if it would be okay if I “promote” them (I guess you could call this) and they said yes so hopefully they remember this and say it’s okay that I’m doing this.
Sad Spotify Playlists is written by my friend Zach and is great for the most ludicrous stories as well as deep thoughts and, uh, vlogs now I guess? (lol)
And Horizon Wanderer is beautifully written by my friend Maddie. In fact, it was one of her most recent blogposts (linked here) that made me want to write this one. I honestly felt like someone was narrating my life–or, rather, transcribing my inner monologue into something worthy of being read.
I mean, THIS: “Casual conversation is a thicket of thorny possible missteps because somewhere along the way I became so concerned with what other people think of me.”
No matter how many times I’ve tried to put that same sentiment into words, I’ve never found the right way to say it.
But anyway, I’ll write (much) more on those two later, but they deserve to be in the update.
Second, NYE was great, in case I haven’t mentioned. Again, I’ll write more on that later, but I just had to throw that in here because those two made up half of the wonderful entourage that invited me to ring in the new year with them and it’s just setting up 2016 to be amazing.
Third, I just saw Sisters with Sarah (typical) and it was hilarious and awesome because the entire time we would just lean over to each other and either say “me” or “you” and then we’d laugh at ourselves.
(Also, in case you haven’t seen the movie, I am Tina Fey who is irresponsible and messes everything up but still refuses to take 100% of the blame because, like, come on, things are hardly never 100% one person’s fault. And Sarah is Amy Poehler who is hilariously and hopelessly awkward with boys and weirdly loves and communicates with her parents even when she is 40. This is accurate representation.)
Fourth, I’ve been writing weird pseudo poems and little things that I might start posting on here but hardly any of them really truly relate to my life so people who actually know me, don’t be alarmed/weirded out/I don’t know what you think of me.
Fifth, I’ve been instagramming a lot more recently which is really not a big deal or deserves to be mentioned, but this means that I am actually taking pictures. And yes I’m also using HELLA filters, but we’re making steps in the right direction so that’s positive.
Sixth, I REALLY want to dye my hair blue (I know I talked about this a year ago, but it’s resurfacing.)
More on than later. (I’ll probably make another “If We Were Having Coffee” post soon.)
Seventh, The Happiness Project is in full swing, people! I think it’s gonna be a good.
Okay, I think seven is a good number to stop on. (Worked for Rowling, right?)
Have a nice night, everybody.

Do the blue hair girl, you’d rock it. I’ve always wanted to do an emerald green or deep purple but I’m pretty sure my parents would sacrifice me to the gods if I did. The Happiness Project book is sooooooo gooddd!!! I’m loving it! Can’t wait to read more of your poetry, and I will for sure check your friends out! Their writing seems wonderful!
I’m sure they’ll love that! 🙂 And oh my god deep purple would be sweet too! I’m just worried I’ll look super pale and washed out with really dark hair but I might just bite the bullet and do it anyway. It would TOTALLY work for you though!!
Even if you do end up a lil washed out clothing choice and make up can help balance that out!
