June Plans

June is finally here and I could not be more excited! (Side note, I started this at the beginning of June, I know June is almost over buut I procrastinated writing this so here I go!) I’m *gasp* a high school graduate now which feel kind of weird but it’s a nice feeling. I’ve decided to do a two year transfer from my local community college and I’ve started my first summer class I’m taking. The class itself isn’t too hard, coming from an AP english class, it’s the same amount of work. The only thing is that it’s suuper fast paced because it’s an accelerated and it’s a summer class. But it’s going well so far, so I have high hopes! (My best friend and I pictured below)


I’m going to Hawaii in a week and I’m so thrilled, I haven’t been there since I was in middle school and I’m excited to go back now that I’m older and can experience more things. My family and I have planned to go snorkeling, hiking, and parasailing so I cannot wait to get on our plane and fly over there.

This summer, I’ve made a resolution to start writing more consistently, (which hasn’t been going well so far…) as well as branching out from what I’m used to and trying new things. Whether that means branching out and trying more risky fashion trends I’ve been too afraid to try, or meeting new people and trying new activities. So far, my plan is to try fishnet tights. I know that they have been a style trend recently, but I never thought I would be able to pull them off. I recently bought a pair of yellow sunnies, which is branching out slightly for me, because I rarely feel like I can pull off glasses, much less bright yellow ones! But I adore them, and look forward to wearing them more often this summer! They’re shown below where I wore them yesterday at the OC night market~

 

Let me know in the comments below what you’re summer resolutions are; whether they be trends, or new places or things you want to try!

Till next time,

Saying Goodbye 

Hi guys! So I’ve been kind of neglecting this blog for awhile and I’m sorry but things have just been so hectic with school and college admissions that I haven’t had the time or the motivation to write anything. But, with the school year almost over, I have a little more time on my hands and I wanted to talk about something that’s been on my mind for awhile. 
Saying goodbye is never easy, but it’s inevitable in life. Whether it’s saying goodbye to your favorite shirt, to a classmate moving away, or to a loved one who has passed away. I’ve been thinking a lot about goodbye’s lately myself. Since I’m graduating high school this year, it seems surreal to me that I’ll be saying goodbye to more than half of my classmates this year. Granted, I’m not friends with all of them, but it’ll be weird going to school and not being surrounded by the faces I’ve come to be familiar with over the past twelve years. 

 
These past few weeks, I’ve been reminiscing over memories created with the people I’ve gone to school with my whole life, and wondering how different it’ll be next year, when more than half of my classmates will be spread not only up and down California, but across the country. It made me sit and think of all the times I’ve laughed and shared inside jokes with my classmates, and how I took those moments for granted.

 

But with goodbye’s also comes the prospect of future memories. My best friend and I are attending community college for our first two years of college, in order to save money and finish out our GE’s. I’ll be able to spend more time with my friends from other high school’s that I rarely get to see and I’ll have the chance to visit all the foodie spots in LA that I’ve been dying to try. I have plans to hopefully study abroad and maybe get an internship at a law firm or online newspaper? I don’t have a complete plan at this point, but I’m so excited for what the future has in store for me.
