This is STUPID: August.

What’s going on this month (what’s STUPID – stuff, tunes, up, poopy, incredible, don’t)

STUFF

Recently, to keep up with the ~*trendy*~ kids, I’ve bought uber expensive Birkenstocks and a black velvet choker. Stretchy ones are finally over, girls! On the makeup side, I’ve been loving the Milk Eye Vinyls (they give you a a very high fashion, 2004 Britney’s lip gloss but for the eyes, super chic look) and my apparently discontinued Anastasia Beverly Hills Gleam Glow Kit.

TUNES

I’m afraid I don’t have anything for you this month but a whole lot of BEYONCE!!! Ugh, you’re probably saying in your head. Well, you’re going to read this and like it, suckers! First up, the song that made everyone go, oh sh*t, Jay-Z is dead meat – Hold Up. And also the song that I referred to as Surfboard before this month, Drunk in Love. You can’t forget the godly feminist anthem Flawless too! (There’s another version with NICKI MINAJ which makes me want to puke happiness.) Of course, I can’t forget about my OG Beyonce love. Count-f!cking-down. You’re welcome.

UP

LOL you really thought I would have something goin’ on? It’s August, girls. All I’ve been doing this month is nurturing my building anxiety about HIGH SCHOOL. *screams into the void* Also, if you’re curious, I made up with my friends…Yeah.

POOPY

Is there even a single doubt about what I’m going to put here? SCHOOL. Can’t yell it louder. Also, my blog looking like a moving train wreck. Also, the fact that my friends refuse to respond to my texts. Also, 90+ temperatures. Yeah, if you think this is long now, wait till you read this section in September.

INCREDIBLE

There is so muuuch that is great this month. I’m not even being sarcastic. First of all – the Olympics, anyone? There’s nothing better than watching the world’s most athletically gifted people on the couch with a bag of Fritos. Also, there’s nothing that makes you feel as incompetent. This year was the first Olympics for me where an Olympian was younger than me. I’ll be looking forward to Tokyo 2020, when I’ll be older than most of the gymnasts on the US team. Great. Also, SIMONE BILES!!! KATIE LEDECKY!!!! MICHAEL PHELPS!!!!! USAIN BOLT!!!!!! Secondly, Pokemon Go is pretty awesome, even if the rarest Pokemon in my area is like a 112 cp Weedle. It’s forced my lazy a$$ to get up off the couch and actually walk. Additionally, I’m not going to get all political on everyone, but the downfall of a certain presidential candidate makes me feel all happy inside. Also, there’s no school right now, which is pretty fine, where I’m concerned. Yeah, pretty great month.

DON’T

…literally individually rip each one of your hairs out at the thought of school.

I love you guys. Wish me luck.

this is STUPID: june

what’s going on this month (what’s STUPID – stuff, tunes, up, poopy, incredible, don’t)

stuff

I’ve been really, really, into this t-shirt made by Explorer’s Press. Also, I’ve been using a lot of the silvery ‘Pots & Pans’ color of this eye shadow/pencil/crayon thing as either a silver eyeliner-ish thing or an eyeshadow. Finally, I’ve been lusting over this SUPER CUTE pair of retro sunglasses and this amazing, vintage looking bralette (by the words ‘retro’ and vintage’, you can probably tell these are both from UO).

tunes

Recently, I’ve been experiencing a Lana Del Rey renaissance and listening to Carmen and Video Games by her. Also, for a research project, I’ve been listening to 50’s pop and I don’t hesitate to admit that I’ve listened to Patience and Prudence’s cover of Gonna Give Ya Up Now wayyyyy more than I should have.

up

School just let out, and on the last day, I had a HUGE fight with my friends. Not fun. They still haven’t apologized, btw. But other than that, not much. I’m trying to start blogging more again, and writing a lot. I’m also teaching myself algebra (when will it STOP) so it’ll be (hopefully) easier to learn during the school year, and going over my basic Spanish so I can pass the Spanish entrance exam at the beginning of the school year. Muy aburrido.

poopy

My fight with my friends. The fact that everyone isn’t taking my side. Donald Trump. Christina Grimmie. The Orlando shooting. The weather (it’s been 50~ and raining where I live most of the time).

incredible

My friends’ audacity. Christina Grimmie’s brother. The ignorance of people who still think that there shouldn’t be stricter gun laws. The snapchat filter that makes a little star halo around your head. My new post titles. Converse.

don’t

…procrastinate on finishing your homework or studying for finals.
…buy a $40 highlighter palette that you’ll never wear.
…call your friends fake (@ them).
…vote for Donald Trump.

FREE BENEFIT BROW KITS?

the title above? NOT EVEN CLICKBAIT. this is 100% real, you guys. and 100% AWESOME!!!!!

(i’m not affiliated with benefit cosmetics)

Copyright Benefit Cosmetics.

So, I’ve been a big fan of Benefit for a long-a$$ time now, especially their They’re Real! mascara and their push-up liner. Amanda’s post about her experience at their brow bar and how overall awesome it was made me think for a long while about getting a wax, despite my extreme FEAR OF PAIN. But I’ve never been a bigger fan until now…

Benefit is giving out FREE brow products! (It’s to promote their new line) All you have to do is get at least 10 friends to sign up for the brow gel, 20 friends for the gel and ‘instant color highlights’, and 30 friends for a brow pencil, the highlights, and gel. And out of everyone signing up, 3 people will get the COMPLETE BROW KIT!!!! Okay, that one’s kind of a reach, but stil!!!!

Super amazing, right, you’re super thankful, right?

Please sign up, if you’re going to, using my link! And not just because I’ll get a FABULOUS brow gel and maybe even a highlighter and pencil, because you will too!

  71. 6 stereotypes in Southern Gothic novels…plus attributes of a Southern Gothic novel itself…plus plain notes…
  72. 6 x 10 notes for each stereotype x 10 notes for the attributes x ~30 if you do 1 note per chapter…
  73. Holy fucking shit, that’s 100 notes…
  74. Do I really have to copy down 100 quotes into this stupid notebook?
  75. Copy reminds me – I have to SparkNotes Of Mice And Men.
  76. Because I have time to take 100 notes on 100 quotes for To Kill a Mockingbird, AND read another novel, and take 25 notes on 25 quotes for that, too.
  77. Even if the novel is apparently “super short”!
  78. “Only takes 1.5 hours to read”
  79. 1.5 hours where I could be staring into the void.
  80. Or, y’know, doing something.
  81. Running or shit.
  82. Speaking of running, I should start.
  83. WORK!!!
  84. Didn’t you advocate slowly reading, to ‘learn something’?
  85. Won’t happen if 50 of my classmates and I are barreling through the TWO books you’ve assigned at 12:23 AM looking for something, ANYTHING that could possibly be noteworthy.
  86. Honestly, the American educational system sucks.
  87. We always get the most work at the end of the year.
  88. Not my fault teachers can’t pace themselves.
  89. We spent three ! months ! writing an argument essay that was 6 pages long, double spaced, and now we have 15 school days to finish 2 novels.
  90. So happy we have 15 school days.
  91. Even if that means I have to bust my ass this last month or so.
  92. Technically don’t ‘have to’…
  93. Which I should stop thinking.
  94. But I can’t, since I’ve already started.
  95. Yikes, four missing assignments that I have to make up.
  96. 3 for science and 1 for SS.
  97. I don’t even think teachers will accept them anymore.
  98. 125 notes on quotes, plus 4 missing assignments.
  99. Again: when can I DIE!!!!!!
  100. For real this time.
