When Things Have to End

I have never been good with endings. Whatever they are, good or bad,they normally end with tears. I am a Pisces, after all.

Traditional
Pisces Traits

Imaginative and sensitive
Compassionate and kind
Selfless and unworldly
Intuitive and sympathetic


On the dark side….

Escapist and idealistic
Secretive and vague
Weak-willed and easily led

 

I don’t think the last two are necessarily true of me, but, “On ne sais jamais:” one never knows. My rising sign is Leo, so I think that also balances me out some.

I just can’t stop thinking about upcoming endings. One later this week, one later this summer. The latter isn’t a huge ending, but the first seems more permanent, more like a “real” ending. I don’t like dealing with change very much. And then I end up feeling selfish for wanting to take the both of them and keep them and take them with me for at least the next few years of my life. I know that all sorts of friends are going to be leaving me behind in these next two years, but in three years I’ll be going with them into the world. As much as I can’t wait to leave home and want to be on my own and be independent, I want to stay home and sleep in my own bed and wake up at eight in the morning to sit outside and drink hot chocolate. (Not that I do that all now, it just sounds lovely.)

I don’t like this. I don’t enjoy this at all.

Where Did my Inspiration Go?

What to write, what to write.

I also really would like to post a video I can be really proud of on the ‘ol YouTube.

I really just wanted to update this blog, but now I can’t think of anything substantial to chat about. One more week and I am no longer a freshman in high school. How wonderful!

Well, I shall update this weekend (hopefully).

Makeup I Cannot Live Without

 I thought of making a blog about some of my favorite makeup today during my geometry quiz. Good thing I’m horrible a concentrating on anything boring, right?

Bare Minerals is my favorite brand of makeup. I have super sensitive skin, and this makeup is perfect. It covers my face while letting it breathe. I have acne and it covers up all of the things I want to hide.

Beige Foundation: This evens out my skin tone and hides red spots an other flaws.

Eyeshadow: I use Queen Tiffany, but I don’t wear eyeliner with it. I also have Joy, which is a bright white, a gold color, and a pinkish gold. My mother got them for me :]

True Gold-

Well Rested: It makes my eyes look like I’ve gotten nine hours of sleep! It also covers up veins and preps my eyes for eyeshadow and such.

Eye Liner Shadow: I use Tortoise. It’s a greenish black, but the green isn’t obvious once you put it on. I like to wet it so it’s similar to liquid eyeliner, but much easier to apply! I use the eyeliner brush from Bare Minerals to apply it.

For mascara I use Great Lash Mascara in Very Black:

That’s pretty much all I use on a regular basis, along with Aveda lipgloss:

I’m not sure if that’s the right color, but it’s a coral-y color.

That’s all I can think of that I adore right now! I’d just like to put my favorites into the world. Thanks for reading!

Some Recent Finds…

I adore fashion. I know it will be in my life forever. There’s something so satisfying about wearing an outfit you’ve picked out that you love. That expresses part of who you are! Cheesy, but true. Check out Kayley at http://owlssayhooot.blogspot.com/! She’s wonderful.

So I went to Target and Kohl’s Sunday because I was in need of undergarments, but I found some lovely things!

Simply Vera Vera Wang Jewels Gladiator Sandals- on sale! And my mom had an extra 30% off which was awesome!

Simple Vera Vera Wang Evident T-Strap Sandals- I’m not sure what to wear these with. I have a black H&M dress that might work…

This sweater is simple and hopefully will be a wardrobe staple.

I can’t find pictures of anything else I bought because I think it was from fall. I bought a dress I really need an opinion on! I’ll try and post a picture of it later.

At Target I picked up this:

Xhilaration® Stripe Bandeau - Green/ White

With the matching bottoms:

Xhilaration® Stripe Hipster Swim Bottoms - Green/ White

I grabbed two of these tank tops, or the similar Long and Lean one, and I’m wearing one right now! It’s so comfy and perfecet for layering.

I think that’s all for now. I just wanted to share my lovely finds!

Love,

Procrastination

Procrastination is bad. Well, I guess not necessarily but for me any form of it sucks ass. You see, I have an anxiety disorder. It’s no fun, but it’s not a huge-o deal. But it doesn’t help me get my homework done. It’d be really great if I would just sit down and do my homework. Guess what I’m supposed to be doing now? My crazy, procrastinating brain is telling me this is better than facebook. What do you think?

Huh. This really is me procrastinating. I’m doing a french project on Claude Debussy. There weren’t many choices for me because I miss the day the class picked, and Coco Chanel was taken. So, like a true Twilight fangirl, I choce Claude Debussy. I also would just like to learn more about the man who made music beautiful enough to be mentioned in Twilight.

Well, off I go. I hope I get something done, or at least start to read a good book. I have half an hour before softball. I intend to put it to good use. -Amanda

In Which I Blog

I’ve had blogs before, but decided I just like wordpress better and might actually be motivated to use it because I can figure it out. Xanga just got too complicated. I could use it well 3 years ago when I was 12, but now not so much.

This just looks so much fancier, eh?
