Rainy day update

So it rained all day here and I’d just thought this would be a pretty neat idea to keep doing. This time around I’ve been feeling better even though I just ate ramen noodles an drank a red bull. Without further ado here are the updates:

  1. I made confetti cupcakes the other day
  2. I cleaned out my closet again
  3. I got my summer housing all taken care of which is fantastic
  4. I was recently told it was strawberry season in Japan so that’s cool
  5. The snows basically gone here
  6. I got some new pleated skirts so can’t wait to wear an style them
  7. Just finished watching New Game which is a cute slice of life anime (Highly recommend it.)

That’s really all I got for right now, I’m just prepping for finals right now and trying to get stuff done for study abroad. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

Big sweaters

So by the title you should already know that I love huge sweaters. Preferably in the men’s section for two reasons, the first reason is that its a little bit cheaper to buy in the men’s section. The materials usually softer or thicker so you will be guaranteed warmth on cold nights. Plus for someone small like me if it’s big enough I can just pair it with tights, a long necklace and some chunky boots then Bang!  It looks like I gave all the fucks but really it took me ten minutes to get ready, another five if I wanted to put on makeup and maybe fifteen if I put my hair up in space buns.  Most of my sweaters I find in the men’ section at h&m or thrift stores if that helps. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

Relationships(pt 2)

Okay so apologies for the lateness of this post first off. Second let me know if you guys like this list format. So here’s a list of things I’ve taken away with my past and current relationship.

  1. You don’t need to talk to someone twenty-four seven (sometimes you need that break)
  2. If they aren’t putting effort, honestly aren’t worth it
  3. Vulnerability helps gain trust
  4. Tell them how you’re feeling when they feel it (don’t bottle shit up)
  5. Listen to music together
  6. If you are in a relationship remember it’s not one sided

I know it’s short but that’s what I thought of off the top of my head. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

Therapy is good.

So last week I didn’t have therapy and let me tell you, I did alright. I mean I socialized more than I normally would which is a plus but draining for me. Anyways I used to have a friend who was always on the fence about going to therapy. The reason I went was because a close friend of mine told to try one session, that was it. They didn’t push me at all but just encouraged. So I did and here we are now, I’m going off campus but am still going to therapy.

At first it was boring and I thought I could solve everything. I thought I could fix everything in my life but I couldn’t. I got angry at myself for not having everything together. If you guys remember I was really dreading summer therapy. I tried it out and ended up really liking my current therapist. It’s not a huge commitment maybe an hour of your day(the only thing is if it’s far away or not) I really like the area I’m in because there’s a whole foods a few blocks away and a bunch of restaurants.

Therapy gives me a time to talk to someone and get a third opinion on stuff. Other times I rant to them about things bothering me. I’ve been trying to push myself but in the right way. Recently I’ve been trying to socialize more but not too much to where I’m drained constantly. That’s one thing I really have to work on so I’m just trying to find that balance. Also reflections, I know it sounds lame but it’s kind of like therapy only it’s for my eyes to see how much I’ve grown. It pretty simple, get a notebook and pen then think and write about things you realized about yourself this month or last month. This helps you think about who you are and who you want to become.

As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

New York(1)

Okay so I know I don’t tell you guys all about my life but by the title, yes I went to New York. If you follow me on instagram you should know this already, so here’s what happened.

I was staying with a family in Union City. The room was very beautiful, like something out of a vintage movie. (The house was pretty old) Anyways the house was amazing, but in my true fashion, I had something to work on. Yup I had to finish an essay for the first summer term english class I had. I didnt really have that good of time management skill(working on that, I promise)

Carrying on with our tale trip, my one pet peeve I didnt enjoy was going back and forth from Union City to NYC simply becuase it was money. And actually one of the days I forgot my wallet back at the airbnb SO I had to get a lyft back. Other than those problems the trip was a success. I didn’t vlog it but most of it did go on my instastory(@alonna_lucille)[you’re welcome]. I went to multiple art museums, went to a lot of cool bookstores, and ate an drank some pretty tasty things. The most memorable trip by far becuase I did a very big personal thing that helped me strengthen my relationship with my parents before I left. So needless to say that trip will always be in my mind whenever I make it back to New York City.

As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

The Defiant By Lesley Livingston(2/2)

The Valiant

The Defiant

So if you haven’t read the first one………………….what are you doing here? I have the links above so…you should get them, they’re good, go and read the first one.  Then when you’re done with that please go read my book review (I mean I know it’s cringe but it would mean a lot to me.) BUT IF YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK AND ARE STILL HERE WITH ME… thank you. Okay so we left off on characters but for the people who haven’t read this I’ll go into the little catchup.

Fallon won the competition or whatever ya know, so NOW everything is alright in the world……and for any of us who know, just no, no. So remember that one scene where that evil character that Fallon beat in book one and there was that scene where our girl was alone in the catacombs? Yeah that scene comes back to haunt her and take everything from our girl.

Okay so no that we got all of this I just wanted to say something about THE AMAZONS (Oh my these ladies were my everything like yes) I loved them for basically the same reasons I love our girls Fallon and Elka. Elka! Oh she was my everything in this book, she didn’t shine that much in the first book but she sure did in this one! She was humorous and we got to know her more as a person, I was living for this spotlight on her. But let’s get back to the Amazons. They were hardcore with that almost death ceremony for Sorcha. And then the whole shield thing going on which was freaking cool, and they all learned it on a boat too. Then after that wasn’t a thing they all still had to go back to fight the other people who stole their Colosseum. I was dying of laughter when the general was all like ,”oh yeah I’ll stay in place of them and if one of them die, you can just kill me no biggie.” Like dude (laughing) you could die, but then I was I like this old man still has a sliver of game (what is this?). So while I was dying at that I just imagine the Amazons just looking at each other and shrugging. (Imagine those dead pan anime characters who just have no emotions, that’s how I imagined the scene go down)

The relationship between Cai and Fallon was there but at this point I wasn’t living that much. It reminded me of Four and Tris in divergent, they were stuck, trying to make it work but they just made each other mad. SO with all of that in mind, I was more focused on getting Sorcha and the Colosseum back like everyone else.  For a while I thought Fallon was going to just go on her own and kill everyone but she didn’t.

As I stated before this book is amazing! I reccommend it to anyone if they love gladiators or just cool new YA fiction to read. So like always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

 

Keeping Busy

So recently I’ve been doing this but not in the right way. I feel like you guys can relate because we all do this, so thankfully I’m not alone.

Story time(v)

I was in my old room, my bed was on my floor I had my music blasting. I wasn’t talking to anyone and I was in my own head twenty four seven. I barely got out of my room besides going to class or doing my laundry. It wasn’t until later as I type this that I realized I was busy…. Just not in the right thing.

See I feel like we all get like this to some degree, like if we watch too much Netflix besides working out or studying. Whatever the case may be I’m glad I noticed this when I did. To be honest I wasn’t going to post something today since I was going back to my own head.  It took me a minute to realize why I was acting the way I did before I started to type out this post. I mean this isn’t me saying I’m always like this but yes there was a period in my life when I was just in my own head twenty four seven.

So I went off on a little tangent but I will end with this and what helps me. Ask yourself how you are doing in any current situation. This has helped me ground myself and actually think about what I have to do versus what I did do. Then I clean for like ten minutes on a space where I work or a spot in my room I’ve been delaying for a while. Lastly, I make some tea, put on some tunes(usually indie or something from the girlboss playlist) and I get to work on something. I hope this helped you guys in anyway. Like always I hope the rest of your week is great and I will see you guys next time!
