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.
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.
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.
