She was all the world’s money, and I would spend it with her, my sharpest friend who changed the tide, my only comfort from the brutal gamble of the world and the wicked ways of men.
"Adverbs" by Daniel Handler…(dedicated to cag"

lemony snicket=daniel handler.

I am the proud owner of the entire “series of unfortunate events” series. actually, I think I am missing book 11, so I haven’t finished but they are very addicting. it might just be addicting to me, though, because I have this special connection with books made for “young adults.” I think the “series of unfortunate events” is actually even guided towards the 10-12 year old range. I’m not embarassed at all, I actually embrace it. anyways, I finally did some research and found out the actual author, daniel handler, may or may not be amazing. I decided to start reading some of his other books and I have successfully gotten sunk it to two within the past three days (i’m on vacation, I can totally do whatever I want):

First, as guided by my saviors at Hellogiggles, I started with:

I love, I love, I love. If you are totally into teenage angst combined with quirky/weird/it could never work out/I remember feeling this way romance, you will totally love this book. I was sad when it was over.

So then, I preceded to:

Holy moly, this book was good and crazy at the same time. I don’t want to give away the ending, but it’s worth it to read is all I’m saying.

Now, I’m onto:

And I have a feeling I am going to love it.

happy sunday! I haven’t left bed much.

A girly predicament.

Okay, so maybe it’s the fact that I internally (and externally, rather) struggle with the fact that I have not aged since I was 15. No seriously. In fact, I think I might weigh less than I did in high school. I can easily blame the stress of college and my attempt at vegetarianism for that one.

Or maybe it is because half of my closet contains my high school wear because I just can’t seem to get rid of it (it still fits ya’ll and I spent my hard-earned Best Buy money on those damn clothes).

But I am having trouble being a GIRL. Or wait, should I say, WOMAN? I don’t even know because I am technically an adult according to the law but my interests are those of a 5 year-old and I still look like I am getting ready to take my learner’s permit test.

I am in this weird phase of my life where I should really be dressing and acting like a professional adult but a) I don’t have a professional career (yet….I’m working on it, okay?) and b) adult clothes don’t FIT ME. There, I said it.

But my real predicament is wearing things that normal girls wear. Like a skirt. Or a dress.Or EARRINGS for that matter.

Exhibit A (via Pinterest):

So like, I totally have this skirt. I love it, how pretty. But I have worn it once, to work a wedding (mainly because it felt the most appropriate). It’s so cute right? But when I put it on, I feel like a mega poser. Like I am not girly enough to wear this skirt. But I love this skirt, what is wrong with me? When I have worn it, I get nothing but compliments.

Same thing with dresses, or a necklace, or earrings. Why can’t I wear earrings without feeling WEIRD? I am a girl! Girls wear earrings, ya’ll.

This is a rant that I hope a girl in my same predicament can relate to and give me some suggestions on being a girl. A big request, I know, but I need it.

Sincerely,

Me
