Back to school supply wishlist ♡

Academic anxiety or am I just a whiny hoe?

It's recently dawned on me that I go back to school in less than a month and I still have to start my summer homework. It's not a lot or anything to crazy, but the fact that I haven't started it yet as compared to some of my other friends makes me feel like a failure. I honestly feel like I've failed all my classes and the school year hasn't even started yet. It's ridiculous I know, but I'm scared for this coming school year. I've heard so many horror stories about the classes I signed up for, all the hours I'll spend working for a measly grade that will mean nothing to me 10 years from now. I still have to get my books and school supplies. I have to start getting used to waking up earlier and not sleeping in so much. I have to get back into the groove of things. Why? Because I have a bad habit of procrastinating that I plan on conquering this school year. Holla at yo gurl. And now that I think about it, there is so much anticipation for this school year. I'm going to be a junior which means I'm going to be considered upper class in the high school hierarchy. And on top of that, I'm going to be the junior class president. And on top of that I'm thinking about doing water polo again this year. And also the musical and maybe even comedy sports (?????) Okay and I'm not saying anything between C and I are going to get serious (tbh there is definitely potential for something to happen between us, but that's for a different post...), but if things do get serious that will play a giant role in the course of this school year. SKdjngaierngajkfrnkanfrsaDGNARKJGNa You know what, I actually feel a lot better letting all of this out right now. I know I just have to be on my A (Or should I say L) Game this year. I can do it. This is going to be an interesting year to say the least...

And here's my little uneducated spiel with the school system here in America:
I just think it's fucking ridiculous that we as students have to memorize tons of information to pass a class that will probably be of no use for the job we're going to have when we're older.
But what do I know.

Pretty sure I'm just a whiny hoe

10 years

Earlier today I was talking to my dad about college and careers and stuff like that and he told me to imagine what I want my future to look like. It got me wondering. Do you ever wonder where you'll be in 10 years time? Like really wonder about it? Where you'll be living? What kind of things you'll do in your free time? What kind of job will you have? Stuff like that. I like to think I'll live in a nifty little apartment somewhere in San Francisco. I'll spend a lot of time on my terrace that will hopefully have a really nice view. I'll probably have a roommate who I hope isn't allergic to animal fur. I'll have a dog (or two). I'll get my groceries at farmers markets. Maybe I'll be vegan. I'll have a little part time job at the local library. I'll have my own little spot in a local cafe where I can hangout and read books and drink my tea and iced coffees. I'll write and draw and knit. I'll ride my bike a lot. I'll have memberships at all the museums in the area. I'll go to art shows. I'll go to shows for bands that have still yet to be discovered. I'll get a lot of my clothes at thrift stores and bazaars. I'll go on walks a lot. I'll be done with school. I'll either be a psychiatrist or an architect (of sorts). I'll either have really long hair that I probably won't style unless for occasions or a really short edgy haircut. I'll keep in touch with all my high school and college friends. I'll go to church every Sunday and probably try to attend daily mass as much as I can. I'll participate in protests just for the heck of it (the ones that I believe are the most humane and righteous of decision of course). I'll visit my parents often. I'll host parties. I'll be in love with someone. I'll go on dates with them and we'd watch movies together and share all our favorite things with each other. I'll travel often. I'll find a place where I can just let go and be at peace with life and the universe and the earth all together.
These are just the kinds of things I imagine.

Mazzy Star plays in the background

Sorry for being absent for such a long time, I've been "busy".
Busy doing what you may ask
Busy living my fucking life... Just kidding. A couple weeks ago I got a job at my dad's office doing clerical work. I hate it so much, but the pay is good and I don't have to work everyday so it's not that bad. Oh and I was on a spiritual retreat all last week. Rekindling my relationship with God, ya know? It was actually a really nice get away from the world and I feel a lot more at peace with who I am and what I believe in. I can honestly say I am happy with my life despite the occasional days when I want to rip someone's face off.
I also took my permit test on Monday. I missed 11. In other words, I failed. You can best believe I got an earful from my failure intolerant mother. Here's the thing though, I actually don't really care about driving so much.
Remember when I was all like "I want a boyfriend blah blah summer fling blah blah blah" and like "I wish I had someone to share my happiness with blah blah blah"? Ha ya me too. (Oh my glob, in hindsight I sound really fucking pathetic???). Anyways, I can proudly say that I am in like with someone and for the sake of my sake we're just going to call him C? This is probably extremely obvious to those who know me. We've been talking for a couple weeks now and we get along really well. Like I feel really comfortable being myself with him and it just comes so effortlessly? I mean that so fucking sappy and I'm sorry, but I don't really know how else to put it. I'm getting butterflies just thinking about itI'll have to write more about it another time though. 

Oh and since today is Wednesday, here's my little Woman Crush Wednesday: 
Tavi Gevinson

where to find this lovely lady:

Geek Girls Unite by Leslie Simon♡

(Pretty sure I've typed the word 'geek' 100+ times. You have been warned...)
If you're wondering, no this is not a book about a geeky girl who meets and equally geeky counterpart and their romance. No. (But it can help you find/ land one!!) This is a "hardcore" book dedicated to all the she-geeks of all creeds of geek. Reading about the geek community has really opened my eyes to what a vast and thriving community it is. The book comprised into seven chapters of the different kinds of geeks (fangirl, literary, film, music, funny-girl, domestic goddess, tech, fashion, politics, retro, athletic). I will give a brief explanation of what you can expect: Each chapter starts of with a little quiz to see if you can really call yourself whatever geek you're reading about. If you fail the quiz, Leslie Simon really calls you out on it comparing you to people like Heidi Montag, Lauren Conrad, Megan Fox, etc. It's pretty sad, but extremely hilarious. A character sketch and brief history on the certain geek is given. It's especially interesting to read if you consider yourself the geek mentioned. After, geek goddesses which basically talks about the most influential she-geeks in their respected area of expertise. Frenemies of the craft are described and highly recommended to be avoided. In contrast, a little section called 'Geek love' tells of the kind of he-geek that would best suit the she-geek. It's pretty adorable. Along the margins are quotes and foot notes relevant to the topic at hand. Recommended activities, books, movies, music, authors, and websites are mentioned to finish the chapter off.

I would probably identify myself as a fangirl geek. It's a  pretty simple concept, but for all those who are totally lost (OPEN URBAN DICTIONARY DOT COM YOU DWEEB), here's a little information: These are the girls that never really grew out of their Harry Potter, Sailor Moon, Star Wars, Star Trek, Hello Kitty, Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, WoW, anime, super heroes, etc. "phase", but let the love of the craft evolve as they matured. Sure some fan-people didn't know they were fan-people until later in life, but generally, the love stems from childhood. There are those that go to Comic-Con every year, those that read the blogs of Bonnie Burton, Tavi Gevinson (she's not much of a fangirl, but I love her), etc. religiously, those that make shrines, those that do all mentioned. If you think you're a fangirl geek and you confuse Star Trek with Star Wars or vice versa, then please lock yourself in a room, get two TVs and put them right next to each other. Put Star Wars Episode IV on one TV and Wrath of Khan on the other TV and try explaining that to all the Trekkers and Star Wars fans (Star Wars fans don't need a nickname because Star Wars ya feel?). Exactly. Make a note of this: dishonor on you, dishonor on your cow...
All in all, this was an superb book filled with knowledge of kindred geek spirits! It's witty, funny, and scary accurate. And if you're wondering, no this book is NOT sexist nor does it force upon geekism onto it's readers, but I mean if you are going to read this, you should do it because you want to not because you have ulterior intentions... I mean that should be said for everything, but that's a different post for the future... Put your geek to the test with this work of art by Leslie Simon!

Dreamy cartoon... I'm ashamed too

I bet you're tired of reading/ hearing the word geek. Sorry, but you were warned...

Thank you Susan

Man-crush Monday: Jason Schwartzman ♡

Whether it be his indie dapperness, witty sense of humor, or talent on and off the screen, Los Angeles native, Jason Schwartzman has won my heart as well as rights to my body and soul. He's starred in several of my favorite movies including : Rushmore, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Shopgirl, Marie Antoinette, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Moonrise Kingdom. He's also made appearances in shows like Freaks and Geeks, Bored to Death, and Parks and Recreation. Hey remember that guy Michael from Princess Diaries? That's Jason's brother! I applaud Mr. and Mrs. Schwartzman for their genes. He's related to the Coppolas (Francis Ford, Sophia, Roman, and Christopher) and NICHOLAS CAGE. Oh and btw, Michael aka Robert Schwartzman is the vocalist and guitarist for the band Rooney! I highly recommend them if you're into alt-indie-rock.  In 2006, he created the indie rock solo act Coconut Records. He was also the drummer and songwriter for the band Phantom Planet before leaving to focus on his acting career. He's dated Selma Blair and Zooey Deschanel, and is currently married to Brady Cunningham (they have one kid). In 2009, he was named one of the top 10 most stylish men in America by GQ magazine. He's also a vegetarian... *Romantic sigh*

'You don't know it yet, but I just melted your heart with my invisible eye lasers'

What a babe though! 

I'm probably the only one who fantasizes about being an iPad... That is if it's being held by a presumably naked Jason Schwartzman.

Hotter than the coffee in his hands. Plot twist, it's not coffee, it's tea, and it's not hot, it's cold. 

My two biggest crushes in one picture. (I'll save Michael for another day.)
