Twice a year our school sponsers a blood drive with the American Red Cross. So far I've given 7 times and one more means I'll have donated a gallon!
So....finish off a gallon of milk and fill it with, water...and that's how much I'll have given.

That's the way my bestie described it to awe-struck freshies hahaha.
I think they were a little scared by the fact that I've passed out every time I've given, too :P

Giving blood is one way we can help make the world a better place for someone.

Little Boy's Reaction to Blood
Unfortunately, I could not embed this video directly into my blog...but it is quite funny.  We watched it in anatomy class and it was in our heads the whole time we studied blood flow.

My Lovely...

He simply looked so lovel-E in his sweater vest and button-up combo! My sweetheart has style...

...and I like to show him off a little.

True Love

You know your shoes are loved when you wear them 'til they're falling apart


These shoes have a lot of's not just the pretty sequins or the comfort, it's the places these shoes have seen that make them so special.

So if someone says your favorite shoes are falling apart, they're lying...your shoes have simply been through a lot. Yes, yes, sounds corny...bare with me...sometimes life gets a little corny.

Happy Hump Day!

Today marks the "hump" of the week...and off to Friday we go!
This afternoon was awards day at my school...I love feeling nerd pride!

My bestie and I each received quite a few outstanding certificates of merit and scholastic ability...I was so excited!

Work it, ladies :)

On growing up...

Well being a senior, I must be responsible and get ready for college...yatta yatta yatta...
Yesterday was first day student advising at the college and it was quite exciting, albeit a bit nerve-wracking at times!  They had some activities for the incoming class so we got to socialize a little and at least feel a little less overwhelmed by everything.
I'm the only one going from my school so that has its pros and cons...all new faces but this legacy shall live on!

Hoping the rain lets up today...German and Spanish Honor Societies picnic!

Auf Wiedersehen, adios, au revoir! :)

I was a little girl...

Every girl is entitled to her secrets...sometimes it's better not to give too much away.  After it's gone, there isn't much left to give.  Fears, for one, seem metaphorical if not spoken aloud.  But then again, many of our fears become reality all too soon.

Sometimes I prefer to live in my "dream" world...even if it's one of those nightmares...the ones that literally have my heart racing despite the events being fairly mild.  It's not the content of the dream, it's the details...a person, a gesture, something so wonderful, yet terrifying...

I would make a great professional dreamer...they're so vivid, they make me question whether or not it's reality.  But then I remember who that person is, and realize it can only be a dream...

I find dreams quite fascinating...

Thank you, Drew, for introducing me to this song!

Baby, it's cold outside...

Unfortunately, the cold rain has set in once again....but I refuse to be confined to pants!  Added a pair of pumps and I was ready to go out into the world (aka high school)....high school is like another world, though.  It is governed by its own set of agenda and rules and "royalty" with its rebels going against the "cool" norms...blah.
Set your own rules...make your mark...get ready to set the spark and stir up some trouble.  (NO, I'm not advocating getting detention or being thrown into alternative ed, or A-Unit as we call it)

Behave out there!

I'm saying to make it your goal not to blend in.

 Deviance of the day: wearing a tanktop...gasp!
Apparently we're not allowed to wear any tanktops now...lame.
Must have started this year??
Everything is covered and it looks classy...and since when has this rule been in effect? Hmm...
Messing around with photo effects...

One thing both Katy Perry and Lady Gaga has taught us is to be daring and to worry about pleasing ourselves...there's always going to be haters.  If we try to please them all, we'd have many more problems on our hands...
Life's too short to live it for other people.

Now please listen to and enjoy Secondhand Serenade! :)

Just another night in May...

May seems to be the countdown of "lasts" along with the countdown to which I shall be a speaker!! :D (shameless plug, yes, yes, I'm aware)
Last night was my prom...A Night in Paradise

My Lovely looked absolutely charming in his nearly all black ensemble (Calvin Klein, such a fashion lover!) I guess I cleaned up pretty well myself, too...

The evening was a great night, though! Not to sound cliché, but it's nice when everyone can just be cordial to one must be the magic of the evening :)

 Lovely and I about to depart...

Favorite pic of the night :)
 Bandfront Little Sister!

 My beautiful redheaded bestie :) 
Gorgeous and ever-stunning bestie :)

Sure Happy It's Thursday!

Today just felt like a GREAT day! :)
Thursdays are my favorite day of the week...and not because I was born on a Thursday

Don't mind the mess...there are always ongoing projects and whirlwinds of clothes and shoes.

Fading off into the sunset

Grrrr....blogspot was in read-only mode for a little while there...

Yet another beautiful day...which is predicted to unfortunately end. Must enjoy it while we can.

Hello, darling :)
 Sparkles are a nice accessory to a bright smile

Goofball at heart :)

What do you think this is, a beach party?

Another absolutely gorgeous day out in the park!! ...followed by milkshakes and No Strings Attached, which just came out on DVD.

 Time to take off the sweaters and enjoy the warm sunshine on one's shoulders
Pretty flowers!
 The blossoms added a nice touch...sans les buzz
When it comes to know he's a nice boy when he always opens the door for you.
Chivalry does still exist!

After being at school all day, I sometimes wonder.... but Lovely always set me straight again

Finally feels like spring!

The sun is shining and it's a fabulous Thursday. It was a day of florals to celebrate the beautiful day...
