I can’t even begin to express the anticipation I am feeling for prom. I have to find a dress. I want to apologise to everyone who has to read this and listen to the vain rantings of a teenage girl.
So, I had found a dress, and it was perfect. But I changed my mind since I found the same dress on 3 other websites (plus it got claimed by some other person; and me being me allowed her to have it. Why am I so nice?!). It turns out though, that people usually have an idea of what they are wearing but pretty much turn out with something different.
I just want to look amazing. I know that if I allow myself to get worked up then no matter what i find it won’t be good enough. But rest assured I will keep my mind open, dedicate a whole weekend to dress shopping. Sorry, did I say dress shopping, I meant dress HUNTING. Like, an explorer in the Jungle I will pounce upon anything stunning. I’ll duck and dive and roll into shops and keep an eye out for danger (tacky, puffy, massive dresses). On second thoughts, I’ll look a bit strange doing that.
So, with just over 2 months untill the big day; I can only hope and pray that the right dress is waiting for me, just me in some shop somewhere. Waiting, hoping to be owned, draping hopeless on a hanger searching for an owner. Grrr, I’m gonna get aggressive with this prom thing!
Peace Out Yo! Evie xoxox
I told you I’d let you know how my birthday night went in my previous post ‘Birthday Blues’. Well the good news is; I really enjoyed it!
I won’t deny it was very busy day. But what can I say? I won’t forget it, and don’t regret a single second of it ( or maybe my hair :/). unfortunately not everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did but some things are just meant to be left in the past; when I look back at that night I want to remember the intensely drunk teen who had us all in fits of laughter, the rich chocolate cake *dribbles* and of course being surrounded by most of my most favourite people.
I can’t begin to describe how thankful I am for my friends, all of them. And of course my beautiful family. If you weren’t there – shame. But honestly, nights like that stay gold forever.
Zizzi’s did a FANTASTIC job with the service, if you’re anywhere near Loughton, Essex I very much urge you to visit this Italian Ristorante. I loved the food, though my Pizza went cold quick. Cakes & Shakes topped off the night with a cute 50’s style diner hang out spot and a Crunchie Bar to wish me a happy birthday :3.
Thankyou to everyone. Can’t thank you enough. You make ageing bearable
We’ve all been there. The thing with high school is, it never changes. Time can fly by, fashions will come in and out but no matter your race or gender, as long as you’re a teenager, rest assured the jungle we call ‘school’ will chew you up and spit you out.
Now, I don’t mean to discourage those of you who havent reached that yet but wise words; you will have your ups and down (extreme suicidal moments, heart breaks and moments of pure insanity and hysterics of laughter) but you’ll never forget it. In fact, your experience in school has the capacity to shape your future, who you are and who you become. unfortunately our teenage years are the ones where we discover who we are, make stupid choices, see the world for what it really is and discover who our real friends are. Today I witnessed something that upset me and thank God (literally) that I know who I am.
People *cough* Girls *cough* will, bitch and just be plain nasty and for no absolute reason. I do believe it’s in our nature as women but that’s no excuse to carry on doing it anyway. Boys will be boys ( rough ‘n’ tumble) and of course will always be there to break our hearts carelessly.
God has kept you till now, he’ll keep you till tomorrow (if he wills). He has plans for your life, even if it doesnt seem so. Forget those popular kids that give everyone evils in the cafeteria. Forget the boy that used those three words with his lips but not his heart. Forget those friends that lied to you. But remember it wont last forever. But then again Bowling For Soup said ‘High School Never Ends’…here we go again.
Enjoy it while it lasts. Dont rush into things. Dont get involved in the Gossip (trudat!) and Be true to yourself. Its okay, to be who you are. If they really like you they wont care what your like.
High school can’t be described. it just has to be experienced. Those are, and will always be The Best Days Of Your Life. xoxo Evie
Its 2am and I’m up reading The Bible. I havent posted anything in ages, but its okay, It’s not like I owe anyone anything. I’m not one of those people who just has to post everyday or else!
But I’ll tell you what – I went to Church Camp last week and celebrated The Festival of Shelters ( When Israel were in the wildernes…You basically give thanks to God). All in all it was awesome! I KNOW it’s not cool to think so or blog about it bu thats Indie. Aside the worship, sermons and food the atmosphere was electric. One of the parts I’ll never forget was laying on our balcony looking at the stars, they were almost close enough to touch, so sparkly. And they didn’t try to outdo each other either, they just lay there in their glory waiting to take someone breath away but how much Greater the One who made them?!
It was a wonderful experience. those of you who know Indie know I was enticed by Autumn Chill and her colours, the night sky took my breath away and the Tennessee style ranch with a lake behind it was just the icing on the cake! I wish I had pictures but, they’re in my head. I loved it. I’ve always wanted to stare into the night sky ( being me I couldnt resist but do a small Titanic scene! The one where he’s in the water and she says I’ll never let go then lets go).Reach for the stars guys, even if its cold, They’re not that far away!

I seem to be the only teen girl who has noticed that Taylor Swifts songs are all about love and relationship ( you’re probably thinkin ‘no shizz Sherlock!’). Yes, I’ll admit it, Taylor Swift’s songs drive me crazy. I’m not taking a stab at Taylor, I think she is a beautiful girl with loads talent.
I and a bunch of friends (all girls) have openly admitted that Taylor’s songs make us want to be in love. I think it’s unhealthy but we enjoy the music so much that we dont see it, we forget about what it is that keeps us young, we forget about living for today. No doubt boys are hot and as young women we should be allowed to drool but believe me once you got one, it’s STRESSFUL! You will be surprised to know I have taken the dramatic step of removing ALL her songs from my playlist, to save my young mind from a warped-fairytale-media-imposed vision of love.
All I’m saying is DONT BE HYPNOTIZED BY THE ‘LOVE’ STORY. We are young, lets embrace it, go out have a good time, watch the sunset and hang on to hope. Relationships aren’t everything at 15. Focus on knowing yourself before you let someone else know you. Enjoy Life. Dont be Tailored, Be You.
I can promise you that Letters to God IS NOT A CHICK FLICK! If you have ever watched My Sister’s Keeper with Cameron Diaz then you are gonna love this ( No not WITH Cameron Diaz, she’s IN the film!). Yes, its about a sick child who devotes himself to writing letters to God to help him cope and understand what is happening to him. You dont have to be a beleiver to watch this film, in fact I think that it reaches out to everyone. Its heart warming and delicate in a captivating way, If you EVER watch anything, make sure its this! I must admit I did cry a little, but I can promise you that its an hour and 20 mins well spent. Curl up with a bowl of popcorn and a box of Chocolates, It’s a great watch!
