Summer: It's time.

We're moving on again. 

Maybe I'll never make it. As a blogger, as a person. Whatever the case is, I can't be here. I need to change everything again. My skin is getting itchy. I've let everyone down, managed to make most of my immediate support system disown me, and lost pretty much everyone I've called friend the last four-ish years. That's not to say that I don't have my people. The ones who've stuck out my insanity and managed to make it around the bend with me. I should make them badges or patches. "The few, the mostly shamed, the Hunter's remaining friends."
Yeah.
Well it was a fun experiment and now I get to do it again. This concludes the second half of my Junior year blog. The first half can be found over at Sun Shy. These blogs are a testament to my total inability to function like a normal human being. (Also wow, I just looked back at some of my old posts. Whew.)

The only thing that I've really learned this year is that to be alive means to suffer through change, and enjoy the good things that come from it.

I hope this blog has made you think. Whether it be about yourself, or others. I hope it made you try new things. I hope you (and I) learned from my mistakes.

I'll post the new blogs link when I make it.


{DETOX and CHANGE}

Have fun and Be Free.

Summer: Life's What You Make It.

I was kicked out of summer school.
Super rad, I know. Summer really has been rough. I can't seem to get it right. But that right there is quitter talk. I have too many people relying on my success to indulge in quitter talk.

So what am I going to do about it?
  1. Look into BYU summer school courses
  2. Call my counselor and let her know the awesome news
  3. maybe contact Edwards and tell her (? this option actually scares me)
What am I not going to do?
  1. Mope
  2. Get stuck on it
I am an immovable force of nature and honestly my summer school was really bad. My teacher wasn't there half the time and I'm pretty sure they had me help falsify documents. Also Major DB was exactly that, a major DB. I know that what's happened isn't good, I have three classes to fix and a limited amount of time to do so. I also have to find a mentor and figure out how I'm going to pass next year.

I really am better than this. I'm kinda super disappointed in myself because I F'ed up this badly.
This certainly isn't the end. But a good general knows when to make a tactical retreat.
So folks, this is your general, sounding the alarm.

Summer: Regularly Scheduled

We interrupt your regularly scheduled seclusion to bring you an update from the summer.
It's been a pretty solid time so far. Still haven't found a mentor, still haven't finished summer school, still haven't gotten enough sleep. I went to Vans Warped Tour on the 19th, I'm putting together a post on that. I'm also putting together a post on presidential candidates. A lot more research in the subject than I first thought. I'm still not completely in academic mode, even though I've been doing school work still. I've been a bit of a vegetable the last two weeks. I need to get to the whole writing, reading, nerdy summer that I love.

Good news? I've been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's been awesome, I forgot how much I love Joss Whedon. 


Today's post is just a quickie, letting you know that I'm still here. Just trying to make my brain work.

Have a beautiful day.

Day Sixty-Three: Of Mind Melds and Fruit.





"Day (-------): Summertime Blues.
Hello and welcome to the ghost town that has become of this blog.
I promise I've not been dead, I've just been extraordinarily busy for the beginning of summer. I've been watching two kids, who are absolutely lovely. While also attempting to circumnavigate the awfulness that is summer school. (Pay attention in class kids, lest you become the seventeen year old with three classes to re mediate.) I've also been attempting to find a mentor for senior project.
I did, however, manage to write a blog post at the end of the year.
"Day Fifty-Three: Holy F*#k.
Today is an amazing day.
I'm more than a little proud that I am passing all my classes and my google history was not displayed for the entirety of Ipoly to see. It's been a beautiful, chaotic last week. Everything seems to be happening at a million miles a minute. That's okay though because we're figuring it out one day at a time.
A look back on the week includes
  • Another bout of habitual lateness
  • Two lovely migraines
  • The urge to commit homicide at least twice
  • Actually doing my homework ahead of time
  • And the feeling of hazy nostalgia of a year better spent trying
Yes, this year has been a wild ride (like I've written in every yearbook) and I didn't think that I could be any more content. Despite that, I am. I'm so pleased and I feel so damn elated that I was able to do better. I was able to make a huge improvement in my mental, physical, and emotional health this year. As well as my grades!

I'm incredibly proud of all my friends who did amazing things this year, I'm proud of the friends that I had and lost this year. Most of all, I'm proud of my survival. My Slytherin spirit and determination not to lose. Tooth and nail, blood and tears, thick and thin. It's been a magnificent year and I can't wait for my next big adventure.

Have fun and Enjoy Summer!"
See, wasn't that lovely? 
We'll return to regularly scheduled blogging soon enough. Once I get my head on straight for sure.

Have Fun and Enjoy Life."

Y'know it's pretty funny when I write several drafts and forget to post them because I've been so busy doing other things. Hi, blog that I've let fall into ruin, how are you?

I'm doing okay, been having pretty awful migraines as of late and I haven't really had the funds to have any adventures. I have, however, been able to work on my other blogs and social media. Fun stuff I know. I've also dedicated a small chunk of my life to Critical Role, a Geek and Sundry show about Dungeons and Dragons. The show features an array of voice actors and actresses and is just awesome.

I also had an adventure in child watching, which was fun. I got to take them on random travels and give them ice cream and not tell their mom. I felt like the super cool kid watcher for awhile and was able to get some summer school done in the mean time. I've also been in my constant struggle with Major Douche Bag, my evil summer school "advisor."
Over all it's been a pretty grand adventure for the start of the summer. I hope to get back to some semblance of a schedule with this blog, but I make no promises.
That's all from me folks, I'll see you in the next round.

Have fun and Be lazy.

Day Forty-Nine: Fitness and a Long Week.





It's my last week as a Junior.
Oh my what a year it's been! Plenty of ups and downs. Changes coming in from left and right. My first prediction of 2015 as a 'weird' year has been pretty accurate up to this point. I know at some point I was ready to call it quits, now I'm here.

What does this have to do with knitting? Nothing, knitting still hasn't happened. I'm scrapping the kitty hat until a better day arises. That does however lead us to to more changes. I'm switching up the tides.

First things first, Anime Tuesday is now Watch It Tuesday. Also It's been moved to Wednesday, therefore I dub it Watch It Wednesday [;)] Fashion posts are now being moved to Tuesday, and come summer I'll be doing more writing Wednesdays.
Yes, this horrendous year is coming to a close. From crazy groups to unexpected friends, this year has given me the full "Grown Up" treatment.

Rad. 

A little update on the whole workout/squat challenge thing. I feel better because I'm getting deeper, more restful sleep. Working out has become a huge steam burner, so if I'm angry or anxious, I just workout and feel a lot better. It feels good to be active and actually doing something. I never thought that exercise could be fun, but hey, I'm wrong a lot.
My mom has put a rule on me for the summer, I'm required to leave the house four times a week this summer. Where and who I'm going to be going with is up in the air. If you have suggestions for an outing, let me know.  I'm also not allowed to sleep until noon, so basically I'm not supposed to enjoy my summer downtime. 

I think that explains most of what's been going on recently. Hopefully you'll understand my absence. 

Have Fun and get wild.
