Procrastination Thoughts: Teachers

While procrastinating today I was discussing with a teacher about the variety of lives that the teachers at my school live. I mean it is kind of expected when you bring such a large group of people together that you are going to get some interesting characters but 

  • English teacher who write erotica and has been married 3 times
  • A maths/ drama teacher who is in a “throuple” with a married couple 
  • A dance/ drama teacher who discusses her sex life with seniors
  • A music teacher who was married to the english teacher who writes erotica, but has also dated 2 other staff members
  • The same music teacher was also caught having sex in the music block with one of those staff members late a night after the alarms were activated
  •  A computing teacher who is highly religious (just thought I’d add this cause otherwise you might think all the teachers at my school are sex-crazed 

For future reference I’m just gonna say its worth befriending teachers and listening in on their conversations because you quickly learn more than you’d ever thought you’d learn about your teachers

I started loving myself again after I read this.. so I just wanna thank Hollywood for casting someone who is a size 0 for the part of someone who needs to at least be a size above 1 to have any form of an ass..
and please don’t give me the “she really understood the character more” line because I hate to break it to you but the character is fictional. Which means that Margo isn’t real, so anyone can understand the character and interpret it in their own way cause that’s what acting is motherf*ers. Also please tell me that out of the millions of actors on earth there wasn’t anyone else who would be just as good as Cara, who is also “curvy”. I feel like this the whole Rooney Mara being cast as someone who is Native American (when she is white as snow) thing again. If we don’t talk about it then how will Hollywood know that we won’t accept this sh*
PS THIS IS NOT CARA HATE! THIS IS HOLLYWOOD BEAUTY STANDARDS AND NOT EQUAL REPRESENTATION HATE!
I owe Cara a lot because before she and her amassing brows were famous I used to get bullied and picked on so bad for my eyebrows. It got so bad that I pretty much shaved them off because people used to call me mono-brow and facials

GIRL Women Crush: Jacky O’Shaughnessy 

At 62-year-old Jacky O’Shaughnessy became the new face of American Apparel, but what people don’t really know is her lifetime of struggle with self-acceptance. Jacky was six feet tall by high school and wearing mens shoes everyday was only option. By 23, she was hiding herself in muumuus, due to the harsh criticisms regarding cellulite, fat ankles etc from men. One boyfriend even told her that she was too old to be seen in public with. And it wasn’t until the actual day of shooting her American Apparel ad, after being scouted on the street, that Jacky was finally able to fully accept herself. Jackie’s spirit, style and story is truly inspirational, and its my wish one day that I will look at least 1/2 as good as she does. I can’t believe it took 62 years for Jackie to realize how beautiful she really is

If I’m being Honest- Time Capsule English Assaignment

(Replying to a letter a wrote myself at the beginning of the year)

24/08/2014

I didn’t even open the letter straight away. It sat in my folder for a full 4 days before I even decided to touch it. This act of hiding something from my own sight and pretending like it doesn’t exist is something I’m doing more and more. If a tree falls in a forest and nobody is around to hear it will it make a sound? If I get a not achieved on my assignment but I never read the mark did I actually fail? Just writing this down makes me feel stupid, I mean reading the answer isn’t going to change anything, and yet I still do it anyway. Until I read the answer I’m just playing a pretend game of fantasy land in my head. Praying for the outcome I want even though it has already been decided. It’s funny how at the beginning of the year if I got a letter, no matter what it was I would rip open the envelop on the spot. Sitting down at the end of the long driveway in the hot sun speed reading through all the garbage to see if I passed, or got in. Now I tuck them in my jacket pocket which gets left on my floor till I feel I’m in the right state of mind and remember about it a few days later. This excitement inside of me to get to the next big thing in my life no longer exists. When I do finally open the letter I find it hard to read, I don’t know why exactly. I mean I’m not embarrassed or ashamed it’s just a letter, to myself which nobody will read in this lifetime except me. Yet I still hide from it, because I’m afraid of the truth. That was hard to write if I’m honest, so hard it in fact I waited a whole week before I finished this paragraph.

A playlist inspired by the character Misty Day from season 3 of American Horror Story 

http://8tracks.com/maggieeve/hanging-with-misty-day/

An earthy young woman brought up in a religious community. Misty is misunderstood due to her ability to bring souls back from the dead. Although some saw her gift as a blessing from God, others in the community saw her as a necromancer and a threat to the community. She was resurrected after being burned at the stake and lived her life in exile wandering swaps and listening to Stevie Nicks.

Avoiding writing on here.. and everything in my life as well.

5/08/2014

(if you wanted to know I always date my posts cause often I leave them in my drafts folder for a long time before I decide I’m comfortable about posting them).

I cried again at school yesterday, and the day before, on Friday and on Wednesday as well. I probably would have cried on Thursday as well if I had been there. The school councilor told me when I cry I should stop and think about why I cry because when she asked me I just shrugged my shoulders and did the teenage “I duno”. I could have told her the truth, just like I could have told her the truth when she did a “depression” check on me… If I had the truth would she have sent me off for more checks to make sure I didn’t have depression? Who knows..maybe? I have to admit I have been through a lot this year but it honestly just seems selfish to say when I know so much is going on in the world right now. I have short term first world problems, while people are loosing their homes and lives because of war. Although my problems put this into perspective.. a perspective I’ve been trying to hide away from for a while.

I always look forward to the first of every month so I get to hear Tavi's words of wisdom. Although this month I was very excited to hear from Anaheed as well. Its always so werid because rookie always has a way of relating scarily close to my life. If I'm going through something or whatever a few days later there will be an article on it, and everything that was in the article just fit in so perfectly with my life. I duno its kind of hard to explain exactly

floricawild answered:

omg yass! that’s the same with me, i understand completely what you mean! it’s kind of creepy but also just so undeniably cool at the same time that we’re all kind of thinking/going through the same stuff. with this month’s editors letter however I was really blown away because I had never thought about witchcraft/enchantment etc in that much detail and the connection that Anaheed made when she said, “when I think about a lot of the male anger directed at women in general, which I have been doing a lot lately, I think a lot of it has to do with anger and resentment about rejection, but even before that, about the thing that made them vulnerable to being rejected, which is someone else having the power to pique their interest. What Adrian Nicole LeBlanc sees as “radiating intimacy,” others may see as a kind of dark witchcraft.” i was like whoa gurl you clever and i’d like to hang out in your mind yo

AUGUST GIRL CRUSH: ALEXA CHUNG!

From appearing in pretty much every single best dressed list that has ever been invented, occasionally DJ-ing, hosting a TV show, becoming a published author as well as modeling on the side. Is just a day in the life of Ms Chung. Having spreads in high fashion magazines, sitting front row at all the best shows during fashion week and a best friend list which makes teens gasp for air. Chung has a life that many would drool over. 

I recently got my hands on IT. Chung’s book which is a collation of her writing, doodles and photographs (which hit shelves last September). It is a brilliant master piece I never want to let go of and the reason I have made her this months Girl Crush.

Her style is a huge inspiration for myself and others alike with the perfect mix of designer, high street and vintage pieces in her wardrobe. Not matter what she always looks flawless even in sweat pants (even if Karl Largerfeld doesn’t approve). After holding the title for years, its still stuck and I don’t think its going any where - Alexa Chung is an IT girl that’s definitely here to stay. 

Diary 29/07/2014

Even though today ended on a bit of a low I had a really great day… Actually looking back on my day it was pretty shit but that doesn’t matter because I finally got back my results for my English assignment.

Honestly I thought this stupid assignment would never end because it is so huge! Basically we have to watch/ read 4 texts that all have a common theme and for each text we had to do a log entry with information about its connection to the other texts. Then I had to collate all 4 log entries into one big final report. My umbrella theme was Isolation due to cults and religion- with my sub themes being the hierarchical structures of cults, the death of purity and rebellion against parents. Cults and religion is something I was interested in reading about, as well as being something I wanted to know more about so it was the perfect choice for me. The texts I choose were:

  • Martha Marcy May Marlene- Film
  • The Following- TV Show
  • Surviving Centrepoint (Ella James)- Memoir
  • The Virgin Suicides (Jeffrey Eugenides)- Novel
