corner view "rough"

Even though I'm in Hawaii and we've also been receiving a little rain and an expected hurricane this weekend, it hasn't been too rough. :P Well, maybe the waves have thanks to the winter swells coming.
I personally love the sunny weather but the rain is nice for a few hours... or minutes (Hawaii time).

What's been rough more than anything is applying for colleges. My parents have been beyond helpful in this process, not to mention their patience with my complaining... It was the whole, 'are we done yet?' thing. The first school I applied to was the hardest one. We worked on the essays for three months and even when we were about to submit it there were last minute changes. Oh the joy.

Anyway, finally finished that first, hardest one. Feels so good. Now I'm ready for the hurricane. :P





Thanks Francesca for hosting. :)

corner view "in my wardrobe"

My wardrobe has changed quite a bit over the years. I feel that it seems to reflect a lot of where I am in my life. I have never been super girly. I've always been athletic and sporty but at times, quite eccentric. Let's take a bit of a walk down memory lane, shall we?


Up until about the age of 8, I wore dresses almost every day. Not because I wanted to be a princess or whatever, but because I was too lazy to wear anything else. I wore a pair of jeans a total of ONE time on a plane. Yeah. 





Anyway, at age 8, I became quite... Obsessed with Paul McCartney. Please don't ask me why this gave me the need to dress like him, I was a strange child. However, my style quickly changed into t-shirts and shorts everyday. And don't forget my curly auburn pigtails. After a few years of this, I reverted back to dresses for a while but at 10 it was shorts and t-shirts again for many years. 




When I was 13 I got obsessed with Michael Jackson and dressed like him. When I was 14 I chopped off all my hair and dressed like a boy and wore a hat for about two years. That was fun for my parents. And then my style reverted back to my 12 year old style for a while -- plain colored t-shirts and jean shorts. 





Right down to the loafers. *facepalm*


Finally, at the end of my sophomore year of high school, I was beginning to dress somewhat normal. And by junior year, I was just in shorts and t-shirts and the occasional tank top. My hair has grown a lot since then. I don't really regret any of my odd stages. I never rebelled much other than that. Now at 18, I dress a lot of different ways, depending on the day. But normally, it's quite sporty (with the VERY occasional dress). :P



   
Oooo fancy

Anyway, a lot of people believe your style and wardrobe is a huge form of self expression. And whether you try to make it so or not, it sort of is. Even for you boys out there. :P You dress for a job or a hobby or just what makes you feel comfortable. It's kinda funny because it's just cloth to cover you and give you some sort of modesty and dignity but people over complicate it. I'm guilty of this. :P It's not bad, just something that's interesting to be aware of. Still, to this day, I am still super uncomfortable wearing my hair down. It's always in a ponytail or a bun. But I guess there's always something to work up to, right?

Senior Dayzz

Hey Guys!!

It's been way too long... I'm a senior in High School at the moment and if you don't remember, it can be a very busy time. :P Lots of college applications and other sorts of things. But I just wanted to update you on what my life's like lately. Really been getting into photography again, it's actually my senior internship for this year. So I've been doing some random fun photoshoots and lots of beach adventuring. :D

Summer Update :)

Ok, so for the 4th of July, we got to drive up to Mill Valley which is where my parents first met and went on their first date. We stayed at a cool little Inn called the Mountain Home Inn and met an awesome waiter guy named Richard. He knew about the Sundays and Mike Doughty and all these unique music artists that no one seemed to know about.

We also went on this hike and saw the hugest trees! 





Then we drove about 4 hours up to Yosemite!

Here's us in front of Half Dome.

We took lots of hikes...
 Can you find me? :)

Some pictures I took on the hike...




Mi Family :D

Then we headed back to Marin.



It's an almond cashew boat! :D

Summer!! California :)

About a week and a half ago, we had to leave and go on our summer trip. So I said goodbye to my friends and off we went...










So now here we are in California! The first week we were in LA. Little smoggy, little crowded... You can actually see a line of smog over the city.


My two little friends. So CUTE!! :)

Then we headed over to Marin, where I was born. Seeing some old friends, so many memories!




And today was Father's Day, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DADDY!! I LOVE YOU!! :D

Old picture, I know but you get the point ;)
