Goodbye Junior Year

Hello lovelies! Today I’m, unfortunately, not going to be introducing you guys to a new place to go in your spare time. I kind of just wanted a blog post to myself today. You guys can learn a little bit about me and my junior year, while I’ll have a bit of something to look back at and be like “Oh my gosh, Junior year… Yeah…”

This, is Mr. Ziebarth, one of the most lively and full of enthusiasm teacher I’ve ever had. It was Halloween and we, our AP English Lang/Comp class, went outside because there was a fire drill during first period. At this point, school was still pretty fun, nothing stressful yet, and I still felt like a sophomore living the life of being able to sleep at 10:30 or 11:00 at night. Oh how I miss that ever so much.

This is one of my favorite pictures of the school year. This is David and he is full of sass, but everyone just loves him. This was during Bell Week on Tie-dye day, I’m not sure which day of the week.

I also took a picture with Cynthia who’s also in UndrgrndOC. She’s very stunning as you can see. She’s helped me get through Junior year. Whenever I needed help with something, she’d be there for me. Whenever someone was annoying one of us, we’d complain about it. We’ve been through a lot together, but she’s probably the only reason why I didn’t leave high school and go to community college. Yeah, I actually thought about it. Haha…

Oh, my lovely group, excluding Bree. Unfortunately, there’s not enough desks at our table for her to sit with us, but she sits at the next table with Vicki and Maggie, close enough for us to still communicate with her. We, as a group, have gotten so close. This was the day before their AP English exam. I didn’t take it because of personal reasons, but hopefully I can take it next year. 🙂 There’s Andrew with his pancake that Mr. Ziebarth made, Naomi with her tiny little thumbs, and Cynthia and Sebastian with their amazing smiles. I couldn’t ask for a better group. I’m really going to miss them. Hopefully I’ll see them a lot next year. ❤

Well, just for the fun of it, here’s another picture of Mr. Ziebarth. Here’s the thing, I was going to take a picture of our class with my phone, but I didn’t know that my front camera was on so Mr. Ziebarth poses for the camera, and I just clicked the camera button. I will always have this picture, that’s totally not creepy. LOL… He has no thumbs. 🙂 Cool right?

There’s also this that I wanted to talk about. Here’s Naomi and me with cut out hearts. FVHS ASB decided to do this lovely thing called “Share the Love”. For every student at our school, they got a heart with their name on it, and there was a cute little note on it. It brought smiles to people’s faces and made us feel special, maybe for the first time, who knows. It was a very sweet thing to do, and I’ll probably keep the heart for the rest of my life.

Here’s one thing that I won’t forget about junior year. I will never forget that in every class, no matter what class it was, I would always keep checking the clock to see when we would get out. I was so tired. I had tennis and all my homework to do, I didn’t really know how to balance all that out. I also live in a house with 8 other people, so it was hard to concentrate. With that being said, I couldn’t focus on my homework, so it took me a lot more time to finish my homework. I then started to finish my homework at around 12:30 or so, but even when I got into bed, I couldn’t call asleep until 2:30. I would wake up two times each night, and it was a pain going through that every single day. Hopefully, my senior year will be better. Maybe I’ll adapt to my environment. I’ll never know what’s ahead of me. I’ll just have to keep living life to see what’s up for me the next day. Maybe something awesome will happen.

The Best of 2014! [cont.]

Hello everybody! The New Year is here and all of us have been thinking about the year that has just passed. Many good things have happened, so we decided to make a few Top 10 Lists. Last week, I wrote about the 10 movies that I thought were the best. This week, I’m going to write about 10 songs that I thought were the best. Please keep reading!


TOP 10 SONGS

Stay With Me – Sam Smith

Stay With Me is the third track on Sam Smith’s first album, In the Lonely Hour. I really like this song because it’s sort of pop ballad-y. The overall feel is sad like a ballad, but the loud beat makes lifts the mood a bit.

Chandelier – Sia

Chandelier is the lead single from Sia’s sixth album, 1000 Forms of Fear. In the music video, this little girl dances through what seems like an abandoned house throughout the whole video. I really like this song because of Sia’s powerful vocals and the overall feel of her song. After listening to it, I kinda want to swing from a chandelier.

Problem – Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea

Problem is the second track on Ariana Grande’s second album, My Everything. I really like this song because it has this retro feel to it. It’s sort of a mix of funk and jazz. The saxophone at the beginning is super cool and the song is really catchy.

Shake It Off – Taylor Swift

Shake It Off is the sixth track on Taylor Swift’s fifth album, 1989. I have to admit that this song is extremely catchy and when it comes on on the radio, I can’t stop myself from singing along. I love the beat and the lyrics and the music video and everything about it.

Jealous – Nick Jonas

Jealous is the second track on Nick Jonas’ self titled album. The lyrics of this song are really good and Nick Jonas’ vocal range is amazing.

Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

Thinking Out Loud is the eleventh track on Ed Sheeran’s second album, X. I think I really like this song just because he’s Ed Sheeran. I’m just kidding. This song is about loving each other until the very end, which I ABSOLUTELY adore.

Steal My Girl – One Direction

Steal My Girl is the lead single from One Direction’s fourth album, Four. This song is super catchy and I love the lyrics. The music video is a little strange, but it’s still enjoyable.

Love Me Harder – Ariana Grande ft. The Weeknd

Love Me Harder is the ninth track from Ariana Grande’s second album, My Everything. I like this song because it shows a more mature side of Ariana Grande. The song’s medium tempo is really nice and edgy.

Blank Space – Taylor Swift

Blank Space is the second track on Taylor Swift’s fifth album, 1989. I think Taylor’s vocals really stand out in this song for some reason. Her range is incredible, and the lyrics are bold; making fun of what people say about her dating style.

Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

Uptown Funk is the fourth track on Mark Ronson’s fourth album, Uptown Special. This song is EXTREMELY catchy and easy to sing. The background beat and classis funk style are pleasant and enjoyable.


There were tons of other good songs in 2014, these are only my personal top 10. I’m looking forward to all the new songs coming out in 2015, and I hope they don’t disappoint.

Tune in next time and read about other top 10’s and more cool places in OC!
