Summer Vacation

I just returned from a plane ride back from my summer vacation which was perfect. It started with me flying to my Grandma’s and then the two of us left for a two week cruise for Europe!

Summer vacation started with cleaning my room, all the way down to the baseboards. This took me about an entire two weeks devoted to labor. In the mean time, I got the Fifth Harmony album 7/27. I feel like they came out with it at the perfect time, as it was a few days before school got out, and summer came in. I finished cleaning, and all of my favorite personal belongings were highlighted instead of a bunch of junk lying around. It made my room feel a lot more like my room.

Then, after many long months of working very hard campaigning in the presidential primaries, it was announced that my candidate won the nomination. I had decided to leave for my trip late so that I could be home during the historic moment, and campaign as long as possible. I had a party with myself in my clean room, and was so happy to be a part of history being made. The next day, I left for my Grandmother’s and Europe. I went from Hungary to Austria to Germany to Holland, and was the center of attention on the cruise ship which was awful. (I was the youngest person there).

When we came back, my mom was there, and I was very happy to see her again. We spent the next few days relaxing and swimming in the pool. Yesterday, my mom, my cousin and her boyfriend and I went to the beach. The weather was perfect and the waves were fantastic. It was the perfect place to listen to 7/27. We had just gone on a bookstore binge, so we read and ate pizza. That night, my cousin and I went shopping at H&M and Forever 21, and I actually came back with two shopping bags within an hour which deserves a plaque because I haven’t been able to do that before, especially with so much product satisfaction.

I’ve had a very hard winter, and I’m so glad it is over. This all really made up for everything and I am very grateful.

I’m especially grateful to be back here blogging, and I missed it. In a few months I will turn fourteen and hopefully things will go uphill from there.

I’ll Be Gone

Hi,

I will be leaving for a European river cruise tomorrow.

When I can I may be posting updates, from this Android tablet I’m borrowing, but if I don’t get a chance to I will write a post about it after the trip is over. I will be gone for two weeks.

So just keep in mind that my posting schedule will be wonky.

Cleaning my room! This whole month I couldn’t stop myself from cleaning my room. It is an obsession. I will be writing a post about how I did it and more soon.

 

Music

I am currently trying not to listen to That’s My Girl by Fifth Harmony, for fear I might get tired of it. It is such a good song that I am struggling. In fact I have Fifth Harmony’s whole new album 7/27 is great. It just kicked off summer for me.

I am learning Rise Up by Andra Day on voice and guitar, and it is very beautiful and full of emotion.

A couple other songs I have enjoyed this month are:

Ride by Twenty One Pilots

This Is What You Came For by Rihanna and Calvin Harris

Mrs. Potato Head by Melanie Martinez. Although the song is weird, (as is all Melanie Martinez) it sends a strong, raw message.

Ain’t Your Mama by Jennifer Lopez. I love this song especially the video and is empowering.

Book

 

Mockingjay (Book 3 of the Hunger Games trilogy) by Suzanne Collins

I read this yesterday and the day before, and could not put it down. This is a fine work of art.

Beauty

These are a couple of my favorite products.

Rimmel Wonder Lash 

Mascara in Extreme Black. Excellent, however clumpy. OF COURSE it advertised as NOT clumpy. Ironically, it is more clumpy than any other mascara that I have.

Wet n Wild Lipstick

Lipstick in Breeze. Works like lip gloss.
