THE AIR CONDITIONER ISN'T ON RIGHT NOW


Did I seriously just name a playlist ‘purrple fallen leaves’?!
Who do I think I am? tavi gevinson? e.e. cummings?

Like, just because I have a friend who lives in Williamsburg does not mean this is okay.



Treat yourself to some ~fall vibez.~ (Ahahaha, she made a joke. Wow, that’s totally a joke. …I think…)

Now it's fall and it's cold and stuff. The sound of skateboard wheels rolling against the sidewalk, the smell of cinnamon, wearing a sweater with all of the little bulbs of sweater residue, drinking out of a mug, and just SITTING NEXT TO AN OPEN WINDOW AND FEELING COOL AIR ON MY SKIN... It's really too much for me. (In a good way.) For some reason fall nostalgia is so strong that it makes my chest tight, like all of the memories are bubbling up inside of my lungs (kind of like the way Jimi Hendrix's lungs were filled with vomit--lolololololol) or my heart strings are literally being yanked out of my chest. I'm not totally sure why. I mean, I hate it when it's too hot or too cold and spring pisses me off for whatever reason.

Anyways, New York City in the fall is so unbelievably awesome.

hmph

Happy fall!




nirvana and smashing pumpkins are like so totally autumn

I'M THE FIREBALL OF THE PARTY

By clicking on the link to this blog, you are agreeing to sit through the hairy details of this thirteen year old's life. 

nuff said

What have I been up to?


Hmm… Well, my friends and I threw a party for my friend Lark because she's going to a new school. (and we just wanted an excuse to to eat an unhealthy amount of ramen and cake.)


IT WAS A RIOT, YOU GUYS! THERE WAS A POLAROID CAMERA AND EVERYTHING!!!


(My uncle gave it to me when I was seven or something. I used this film from The Impossible Project.)





Like every good party should, we had a piƱata that totally does NOT have our assistant principal’s face taped on to it that we totally did NOT smash to pieces…






…TIME WARP!!!



…Children sitting upon other children…




omg it's me
looking sexy
luv ya <3

…A cake…

our favorite k-pop loving little ball of energy

You see, we’re in eighth grade, so we’re still at that age where snorting Pixie Stix doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.


~Awww~ Look at all of this cute partyness.









O O O O O

I got my copy of the Rookie Yearbook One signed. I know you guys want this awesome story about OMG MEETING TAVI GEVINSON, but if you follow my late night tumbling, you’d know that book signings aren’t my forte.





O O O O O

Most of all, I’ve been studying. IT’S SO MUCH FUN AND LIKE OMFG MY BOOK HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR.

I DON'T KNOW YOU, BUT I THINK I HATE YOU


ew omg u cant put a green day lyric as your title
no but its theyre early stuff
your not indie anymore
don’t even argue

I finished my first week (two days) of school!
humph school.

clueless
I was really missing this feeling of exhaustion and physical discomfort and heavy headedness.

(It’s not that bad… I just was too excited to sleep the night before yesterday and watched Obama’s speech last night, which I will do I write-up for, for school, and might possibly post here.)

I always expect something from school, for it to be like, really, really great and nostalgic or something. Things seem super glorious when I look back at them and laugh to myself about a joke that someone told last year. Other than those few moments, I mostly mope around and be miserable. I guess later I’ll be like ‘omg that was so Daria of me,’ but for now things are pretty mehh.

No one in my class talks to me, so I just shut up most of the time. I feel kind of ~dead.~ Like, I’m not crazily upset or anything, just ~empty.~

just because u dont have any friends (in your homeroom) doesnt meen u shud complane so much lyk srsly its annoying

I’m just really anxious to officially get back into the swing of things.

I always expect school to end up looking and feeling something like this. It seems really fantastical when you think about it in nineties teen dramedies.

I go to a ~gifted and talented~ school and we don’t have stoners, so my friends (they all have like, pink hair) and I are the ‘makeshift’ ones. (We don’t smoke/snort/whatever you do anything.) Plus, I’m in eighth grade.

We have a school uniform!!! Prettay prettay prettay cool. It has a logo, which I made look like a splotch using modern technologies because I don’t want you school uniform pervs to pee on me. Also, (ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT THIS IS NOT A FASHION BLOG) I will not have any interesting outfits to post or fake reactions from my nameless peers to share with you.



I read somewhere that it’s humanizing to have pictures of yourself, so I will prove to you that I’m not a computer, but in fact a newly developed and sleekly designed robotic gurl thang.











 See, not interesting at all.

I might as well talk a little about my school. It’s one of the top middle schools in New York City. It’s located near a lot of projects and liquor stores, so there are plenty of toothless, homeless dudes snorting at all of the little Asian kids playing games on their calculators and tripping on the sidewalk and running over everyone with their massive rolley backpacks.

It's pretty liberal and stuff. Like, one of the third grade teachers is openly gay and all of the little kids eat greek yogurt and fancy flavored cottage cheeses.

I’m in eighth grade, but I’m taking tenth grade geometry, eleventh grade physics, some sort of high school level Spanish (basically everyone in my class has taken it two years longer than I have because there were too many people in my French class), either tenth or eleventh grade social studies, and some philosophy shat that my school calls “English.”

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
This is me bitching and complaining so you understand why I might not post regularly.

Also, if Craig Gilner didn’t explain it to you, there is a specialized high school placement test that basically every kid in New York City (who like, cares about their future) breaks their back studying for. I am studying. I also take six hours of prep classes a week.

OKAY, NOW THAT I GOT THAT OFF MY CHEST, WE CAN GET BACK TO BUSINESS!

I like learning things and writing things down in notebooks with pretty pens and stuff. School really isn’t that bad.

Don’t worry, I (probably) (hopefully) won’t mention this whole stoopid school thing anymore.
