A quick update on some recent events: My little sister had her first-year orientation for college. I went to see Taylor Swift (who was AMAZING live) with one of my friends, I saw Magic Mike XL, I reconnected with one of my friends who I hadn’t seen in over six months, I saw a great firework show in my town, I will finally be finishing my sexual violence crisis response advocacy training next week, and summer camp has begun!
I am working with kids that are at-risk for racism, drugs, and violence. The summer camp is about utilizing art as healthy outlets for them.
I was really nervous about being a counselor because some of these kids are living and coming from challenging backgrounds that I have never experienced and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to connect with them. My fears have been overcome because so far, it’s been great. All my fellow counselors are super supportive and amazing and the kids are great. I’m having a lot of fun teaching them and learning from them as well.
Although I can talk about the camp forever, I want to talk about the quote that I included in the beginning…
This quote by Max Ehrmann has been on every page of my agenda pad since the end of my first romantic relationship. It helped me stay positive and focused on my goals rather than focused on how many people in my life have treated me poorly. I still write this quote on every page and I still think about it when I begin to doubt myself. It wasn’t until recently, however, that I have embraced it as truth.
I love this song and this cover is great.
maybe you thought i was fishing for an apology…i was at the time. but for awhile i’ve been feeling more at peace and not needing that to get by…the gashes have been healing although the scars are still apparent and pain is an adjective i’m still feeling but i’m okay i’m better then okay, actually then you come around…jeez, you have a lot of nerve after i opened myself up and told you how you made me feel. honestly, you shouldn’t have said anything because you don’t mean it you shouldn’t have told me that you had loved me but you did…maybe to “do me a favor” too bad i’m allergic asswipe flavor you really should’ve saved your bullshit apology because we both know that you’re not sorry…but thanks for trying because you’ve only confirmed that i am better off without you

I had an interview for the third internship I applied for on Tuesday. I was required to wear “professional” attire…I’m not really a fan of professional attire because…well this article briefly describes how it’s problematic.
Anyway, this was my ensemble…
The dress is from Forever 21 from the huge online sale I got my birthday dress from. I’m wearing a cool necklace I’ve shown a few times on here…I matched the dress with fishnets to make it more interesting as well as Docs.
Taylor Swift Thursday
I was inspired by Taylor Swift for this look…I’ve been really down lately…having breakdowns and feeling unmotivated. A lot of things are just bothering me and weighing me down…I feel alone and lost…it’s a depressing mess. So I decided that I should channel Taylor Swift because she’s gone through a lot of breakups, a lot of hate from people, and other things and if she can be strong and break world records, then I can too. Well, at least I can be strong.
So this is what I wore…I actually got a lot of compliments.
The shorts are corduroy high-waisted shorts I got a long time ago, they come with suspenders. The striped turtleneck is something I got from my grandparents for my birthday…and then I’m just wearing leggings and another pair of Docs that I have. Oh and this headband because it was cold.
This was the look I was trying to emulate a bit…
And this was my makeup…
Anyway, I hope you guys had a good week, thank god tomorrow is Friday
