my President's Day in a blog post

Happy President's Day, everybody! Our county was lucky to not have school stuck at home, I got a lot of work done. My day wasn't exactly exciting, but it was productive...

"Perfect" by P!NK

I came upon this song listening to the covers by Megan and LizCimorelli, and Christina Grimmie (so check them out because they're amazing!) when I listened to the original song, I fell in love. It's such a great meaningful song, conveying a sense that imperfection = perfection...and this video...oh God, I tear up every time I watch it.

SAT Prep in all ways possible

With my subject tests 2 months away and my SAT three months away, I have started prepping. nerdy as this may sound...I find the SAT Math level 2 quite interesting...

Writing...editing...and them some more writing


This deadline for the short story contest is approaching (March 4), so I've been perfecting everything before I submit it. And as much as I love this picture (gotten from weheartit), I have to admit, I'm grateful for computers. I've edited so much already. I don't know where I would be if I had a typewriter...because trust me...I make a lot of mistakes.

Writing essays for internships (or lack thereof)


Time is moving (it's almost March!) and I need to decide what I'm doing over my summer...quickly. I've found some internships that I want to apply to...and as the deadlines are looming closer...I have to hurry up and begin my essays. Definitely not looking forward to it.

Praying for some snow
Just last week, we were wearing we had exchanged our winter coats, sweaters, and boots for a pair of flip flops, shorts, and floral dresses. And we thought too early. As I type this, I can hear the freezing rain pouring down the window. So...we're predicted to get about 3 inches of snow school tomorrow? I hope!

Also today:
  • I found my long lost (a year), sparkly, tights in my mom's closet. Yipee!
  • I drank the last of the cappuchino mix. Boo :(
  • Yo estudie para un examen posible de Espanol. Ojala que la escuela sea cerrada manana! 
  • I got an email from my debate coach, notifying me that my partner and I are advancing to districts next week! Yay!
That's merely all. was your President's Day? 



  1. Hey :)
    I have no idea what President's day is. Lol, we don't have that here.
    Good luck with all the prepping for your tests. I have to start doing that soon. :(
    I LOVE that song by Pink. Have you heard the cover by Travis Garland? It's amazing.
    Aww it sucks you don't know how to end your story yet, but I'm sure you'll come up with something good! :D
    Ew snow. I used to love it, but now it's just boring. We had so much of it in the last two months. I hope we don't end up getting any more of it.
    This has turned into a long comment. Sorry ^_^

  2. It was a long weekend from work! Yay! :-)

    But I spent yesterday catching up on a few chores and baking a coffee cake. Then I spent the evening being lazy and watching gossip girl.

    Congrats on advancing with your debate partner. That's great news.

    I'm your newest follower. I hope you'll follow me back.

  3. I just worked for President's Day. :(

    Ending a story is tricky. I like leaving it open ended. Ex. His feet started moving towards his next adventure. Or They stood there contemplating what the future might hold now.

    Hope that helped a bit. :)

  4. Lovely video indeed, and good luck with your writting!
