Wow, it's been a while. Life has been so crazy. And full and happy and difficult in one. I like this craziness, this challenge, but I'm so thankful to have a week off and recover. I hope that I'm doing a good job. Because I feel like I'm living selfishly right now. I have to get everything done for me and then I budget my time after that for others, but what works for me. I hope I'm not being a bad friend or sister or daughter. Uhh, yeah. I've been writing a lot of poetry and daydreaming about... people? someone? errr... this needs to stop. But it's nice to be occupied for a while. This is one of around 6 poems I wrote at about 1 am last night:
two months fly past it's the calendar tornado tearing and ripping pages through these golden days
days of friends and work and your car's heater won't start but you have plans tonight and that boy smiles right back
uncertainty's high but your hair is long and you can still rebel with music too loud
some days you cry & most days you laugh and all are rushing by but I am still thankful for the time to love and let fear die.
Wow. Perfect day yesterday. I got to go to Austin City Limits and it was insaneeee. I have never been around that many people in my life, and just being packed in like sardines but with everyone moving to the same song screaming the words... perfection. We saw The Wombats, First Aid Kit, Delta Spirit, Tegan and Sara, Florence + the Machine and The Black Keys. Florence and the Wombats were my favorite of the day, but I was so impressed- everyone sounded flawless live. I got ridiculous sunburns and probably high off of second hand smoke (security was pretty weak, especially when drugs were involved) but it was perfect. Gahh. I'm so lucky.
Obsessed with this song! Ha, Taylor. You and me, since 6th grade. There's a Taylor Swift song for that! I'm really just killing time before bed because I can't really go to bed right now, but I have debate tomorrow! I'm so excited. I'm really addicted to debating, it's crazy. It's the best adrenaline rush ever. Wish me luck! Have a great weekend, loves :)
I hope everyone is having a great day :) I love this set, so summery... I have to hold on to some kind of hope! I heard Christmas music on KLove yesterday and I was very unhappy. They really should put some regulations on that. Spend your day with family and friends, go swimming, eat some yummy food and be happy! -Jackie
Obsessed with Frank Ocean. It's kind of surprising, it's not exactly my typical indie-alternative stuff, but it's fantastic. Melodic, good lyrics with some style. Love. Today was the last Saturday of summer. And tomorrow I'll be at church basically all day, which I love, but it means that my summer has evaporated. It's crazy to think about, but I'm ready to start. I haven't felt this ready in a while, but I've learned a lot this summer, made friends, had some incredible experiences and it has been the best summer of my life. So after that, I feel like it's time for school. I'm refreshed and I'm excited about all the new privileges and possibilities. Now that I can drive, it's made so many things more enjoyable. I'm still not sure about my outfit for school- I thought of it this morning while still sleeping.. weird habit.. but I haven't tried it on yet and it involves a 3/4 length skirt which may be too trendy for the first day? Haha, living in Texas problems, seriously. So I'll have to see about that, but I'm sure I can be flexible. Life is good right now. I just spent the night with my family, and went to lunch with my friends, and I have new pretty earrings and rings and I'm ready for a new school routine. A good attitude makes everything so much better, oh man. You should comment what you're wearing/wore for the first day to give me ideas and show me you read this whole thing! I haven't wrote this much in a while, I miss writing little novels and stories. XO Jackie
Cannot stop listening to Wilco... perfect music is perfect. I'm actually ready for school to start. Believe it or not. I've done a pretty good job at making myself as bored as possible this past week, so it's good prep.. I guess. Haha, I don't know. I am excited about clothes though, if that's an okay thing to be excited about. I've spent a lot of time just planning possible outfits- I want to be better dressed this year. I always say that, and I've gotten better, but I'll still have at least a weekly T-shirt. So, maybe I can do better about that. Clothes obsessions right now- maxi skirts and denim shirts. Please, be in my closet now. (end shallow outfit discussions)
