Day 30: How have you changed in the last year?

Looking back, I think it’s pretty unbelievable how different of a person I am today.

Let’s start out physically. Obviously I cut off all my hair. Big change, but I needed to start over fresh. I cut it off in May ‘10. I’ve also gained some weight; not a huge amount, but I’m definitely a bit thicker (like 10 pounds heavier) than before. To be positive, I’d like to think that my acne’s clearing out and I’m not breaking out as much. I also never used to be sick this often. I used to smoke every single day but I’m proud to say that I’m clean now and couldn’t be happier.

Mentally, I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t let people walk all over and I don’t take shit from anyone. I’ve had more confrontations this past school year than I’ve had in my entire life. I don’t pick out fights or anything, but people really piss me off now. I don’t attach to others as easily anymore and I don’t hand out second and third, and sometimes even fourth, chances like candy anymore either. I’ve decided I don’t need a man in my life to be happy. All I care about is me; not in a selfish way though. Just in a I-know-what’s-important-for-me sort of way. Overall, I’m an incredibly happy person now. Just with a short fuse but hey, we’ve all got our flaws.

The past 30 days have gone by so fast, I can’t believe this challenge is already over. I’m psyched to start a new exciting one :)

Day 29: Who is the person you feel most comfortable around?

It’s really easy for me to be myself and to be comfortable around everyone; having a boyfriend for two years does that to you, even after breaking up. But other than my family, I’d have to say Haleigh Albano.

I’ve been a part of her family since I moved to Florida 6 years ago. I was best friends with her brother before I became so close to her, but it’s like she’s always been there for me. We’re both incredibly random and spazzy and hyper and obnoxious together, it’s so much fun. It’s impossible to not have a good time with her. We’re both extremely comfortable around each other and we can eat and eat and eat together without feeling all self-conscious about how many calories we’re consuming. We have a really great friendship and I hope it never dies <3

Day 28: What is your favourite scent and where is it derived from?

I don’t really have a favorite scent. When it comes to perfumes and lotions, I just pick whatever kind is on sale. It also really depends on my mood, if I want something fruity or sexy or natural.

Day 27: On what do you spend the majority of your money?


'Cause I'm fat xD

Day 26: Recall a socially awkward/embarrassing situation that you’ve been in?

Well one thing you should know about my life is that it’s just full of socially awkward situations. A day doesn’t go by where I’m not socially awkward. Of course, there are those normal, everyday situations where everyone’s just a bit socially awkward. Mine’s just full of lots of those, plus more.

My most recent was probably last week when this really hot guy moved in next door. Haleigh and I were creeping outside in my driveway waiting for him to come outside…then he actually did. But we didn’t say anything, we just sort of sat there and crept and he sort of did the same. It was really weird.

Today I went into a gas station with this guy I’m talking to and he knows the guys who work behind the counter. They all speak Spanish and I don’t. But, in English, they were just like, “Hey, is that your new girlfriend?” and Sal was just like oh yeah. Then the two guys were really creepy and were like, “Tehehe hiiiii.” and I was just like ummmm wtf bye. But not really. Anyway it was awkward.


Day 25: What are some words that you live by and why are they so powerful?

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."  -Buddha

I live life to its fullest everyday and I never miss out on any opportunities handed to me. This quote really effects me because it sort of motivates me to forget about all the stupid things I’ve done because I love who I am today. Without my past, I wouldn’t be me.

Day 24: How do you see yourself?

I’m happy and it shows. If anyone knew exactly how happy I am, they’d probably want to shoot me. I am incredibly optimistic and always find the positives in every situation. I am strong and independent; I hate people telling me what to do. I’m very indecisive and I get self-conscious a lot, although I do like to stand out in a crowd. I’m insanely open-minded and down-to-earth. I’m here for you even if you aren’t there for me.

I am someone that people try to walk all over. But just FYI, I don’t take shit from anyone. I’m done with that :)

Day 23: Which television show or movie would you like to be in?

If I were in Dexter, I would be the new Rita. If I were in Gossip Girl, I would take Blair’s place as Chuck’s love <3 Those are my celebrity crushes, not gonna lie. I love both of those men so much ;D
