From the Ages of Ice Cream to Business Meetings

What do you think of when you see the picture to the left?  For some reason, I think of childhood.  I think of all of the joys many of us experienced as children, and how our joys change over time.  When we are children something as simple as ice cream can make our day.  However, when we enter into adulthood, life can get a little more complicated.

I would like to think that I will eternally be a child at heart.  I wish to be forever amused by the smallest things.  I know it is harder than it sounds, but it is a great way to look at life. 

No, you shouldn't wear mismatched clothes to a business meeting or carry around coloring books in your briefcase.  Still, you should be able to have a small bit of that childlike wonder when looking at the world around you. 

We all just need some time to relax.  Take a step back and look at the world from a different perspective every once in awhile.  It might surprise you how much you learn by just looking at things from a different point of view.  In turn, you will learn more about other people around you, and yourself.  As they say:  You're only as old as you feel!

Your Not So Average Fashionista

I went on a shopping trip today with a few of my best friends, and it really made me start thinking about fashion.  When it comes to fashion, I have went through almost every phase you can possibly go through.  Both my clothes and hair have changed drastically throughout the years.

I take pride in being unique and being myself when it comes to clothing.  I was even remembered at my high school graduation for my bold clothing choices.  I think fashion is a beautiful thing because it allows you to express your individuality.  You should not judge people by what they wear, but what you wear can definitely complement your personality!

I don't know about you, but I am one who LOVES clearance shopping.  For my eighth grade graduation, I remember getting my outfit for $1.77 due to discounts and such.  I think I was almost as excited on the great buy of my outfit as I was about the actual graduation! 

I am by no means a brand name buyer.  I buy what I like, and I like what I buy.  I like the way it looks, and am comfortable with the way it feels.  Why else should I spend my money on something that is meant to be worn?

I can be a T-shirt and jeans kind of girl one day, wear all black attire with make up another day, and wear rainbow bright colors the next day.  Maybe the day after that I will just throw something on and not do ANY make up.  I guess you could say I dress how I feel. 

What can I say?  I'm just your not so average fashionista!  ;)

25 Things About ME!!!!!

Hey guys!  So I just realized I was tagged by Ms. Jessi Haish, of The Musings of a Wannabe Star to participate in the "25 Things" game.  I do not know how many of you have taken part of it before, but it is an extremely fun game in which you write a list of 25 things about yourself.  These things can pretty much consist of anything!  Here are the rules: 
Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a post with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 10 people to be tagged. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you. I go!!!  25 things about myself!

1.  Theatre is pretty much my life!  My dream is to be an actress, and I would love to move to New York someday!
2.  I love the color black.  No...I am not goth.  I just think it is a nice, expressive color.
3.  I own over ten pairs of Converse.  I also own a lot of flip flops.  I guess you could say I am a shoe person.  :P 
4.  I over analyze almost everything.  I have a serious problem with thinking too much, even when I shouldn't.  Then other times, when I need to think, (*cough* school) I don't think enough.
5.  I have an insanely hilarious sense of humor.  I can make a joke out of almost anything.  Some people have told me I should be a comedian. 
6.  I love psychology.  It was one of my absolute favorite subjects that I took in high school.  I hope to do something with psychology in my life.  I am very interested in people, and why they are the way they are.
7.  You take me to a bookstore, and I can spend hours killing time there.  I love to read, and I love to go to bookstores.  There is just something special about holding a new book in your hand that you know is yours. 
8.  I love the books "Please Stop Laughing At Me..." and "Please Stop Laughing At Us..." by Jodee Blanco.  She is one of my heroes, and you should really check out her two books that I mentioned.  The first one, especially, changed my life.
9.  I really love to write.  It helps me sort through the things I am going through.  My journal is a great friend, and it doesn't judge me even when everyone else seems to.
10.  I am really into quotes and lyrics that mean something to me.
11.  Speaking of lyrics, I love music.  I especially love when music has good lyrics.  I have an array of music on my iPod.  I have everything from country to alternative, rock to pop, and even the music out of some musicals.  I like to think that you can tell a lot about a person based on their music taste, but I have not proven that theory yet.
12.  I love going to the movies with friends, even if I don't particularly like the movie, because I enjoy eating movie popcorn.  I guess I also enjoy just having something to do, because I HATE, HATE, HATE, being bored!!!
13.  I am a major advocate for stopping bullying.  See #8 above.
14.  I have bowled on a bowling league since I was in the 4th grade.  I probably could be a lot better, but it's fun anyway...
15.  When I was little, I once wanted a Santa cake for my birthday, even though it's in July.  I got it though!  :)
16.  I frequently have strange dreams, and I often remember my dreams.  I hope that means I am really creative!
17.  I love "The Secret Life of the American Teenager."  It is about my favorite show.
18.  I like to play soccer just for fun, even though I've never played on a team or anything.  I might not know all the rules, but I DO know it's fun very fun!  :)
19.  Although I am funny, I am also very deep.  I have some thoughts that are as deep as the sea.  I like to think that I have an "old soul." 
20.  When I was younger, I was terrified of angels appearing to me in the shower.  Yeah, I was a strange kid...
I guess not much has changed.
21.  I love pizza.  I especially love pepperoni pizza and cheddar cheese pizza.  Stuffed crust is just an added bonus!
22.  I don't think I text  as much as the average teenager.
23.  I am one of those few people in the world who doesn't mind being in pictures.  I've never been one of those, "AHHHH!  DON'T TAKE MY PICTURE!!!!!" people.
24.  I think I have a kind of obsession with social networking sites.  First, it was myspace.  Now, it's facebook.  I just can't get away from them!
25.  I really try to be a nice person, and I hate when people don't like me.
So...there you have it folks.  I chose to tag:
1.  Alexxander of Letters From the Wasteland
2.  Hannah of Hello life, glad you're here
3.  Kevin of Something Like That
4.  Himani of The hidden shadow
5.  David of The Rest Is Still Unwritten
6.  Lily of Unconditional Honesty
7.  Jitsy of Mind Starts Speaking
8.  f8hasit of f8hasit
9.  Call Me Cate of Show My Face

Waiting it Out.

"Some things in life are worth waiting for...even if it means waiting forever."

I was sent the above icon in a text once before when I was younger and a lot more naive.  I was susceptible to falling for any cliche line of a skilled Casanova.  Now, I have set my standards a little higher.  I typically know bull when I hear it, and I also recognize sincere compliments.  Lately, I have heard much more of the latter. 

I used to think I just had bad luck, but now I realize that I am very lucky.  I might have had to wait, but one thing I have learned is that some things are worth waiting for.  It may seem like forever, but it's usually not.  You just have to wait, and your time will come.  I, for one, am happy that I had to wait.  It has made me appreciate so much more what I have now.  If I had not had to wait, the person who most deserves my appreciation now, would not be as properly appreciated as he is.  It may sound like a tongue twister to you, but it makes perfect sense to me. 

Whatever you are waiting for, your time will come.  You might have to hold out a little longer than you wanted to, but you must have hope.  Whether it involves life, love, or just happiness in general, it will eventually come rolling your way.  And when it will probably be better than you ever expected to be.  You just have to wait it out.

A Spark in the Dark

Fireworks are one of the simply complex beauties of summer.  What could be better than watching fireworks in every shape, size, and color, light up the sky on a gorgeous summer evening?
Fireworks start out as a mere spark and proceed to illuminate the entire sky surrounding it.  Isn't it amazing how something that starts out so small can become so humongous?  Even more amazing is the sound following a firework.  At first, the spark seems to go out.  All you see is a dark, lonely, sky.  And then...


A sound is heard that would probably make Helen Keller jump, and along with it is a vast array of colors that decorate the night sky!  Almost everyone loves it though:  the whistling sound of a firework launching up in the air, the illumination of a previously dark sky, and the smell of smoke long after a firework goes out. 

Like fireworks, many other things spark in summer too, though we may not always recognize them.  Fireworks are hard not to miss when they are blowing up right in front of your face like gigantic volcanoes.  However, there are lesser sparks during the summer. 

Sparklers, for instance, are a lot less obvious.  They don't beg for attention.  They don't light up the whole sky.  The fact is though, they they can still create a fire.  All it takes to start a fire is a tiny spark, which is precisely what a sparkler is.
Just because something starts out small does not mean it could not turn out to be something big.  You may see a sparkler, but it may be the beginning of a beautiful firework...

Always in the Way?

I found the picture below while surfing the web, and I found it very moving.  It is, indeed, a PostSecret.
I don't know how many of you have heard of "PostSecret," so I will just explain it to you now in case you do not know about this amazing project.  According to, "PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard."  They then publish books with these anonymous secrets in them.  Actually, I have two of them, and they are very interesting to read.  It personally makes me feel less alone because we all have secrets.  We all have something about us that we have kept hidden from everyone else.

As I mentioned earlier, I found the PostSecret pictured above incredibly moving.  I believe it deserves to be recognized and discussed.  I think it is a secret almost all of us can relate to whether we will admit it or not.  I know I, for one, have felt ugly before.  I have felt like I was in the way.  I have felt that something would have been better of without me.  How about you?  Have you ever felt this way?

Ahhh...The Envies of Summer!


If you are a student, like me, you probably breathed a sigh of relief after you finished that final exam.

If you are a parent, you may be dreading the fact that your kids will be home ALL summer.

If you are a teacher, a sense of freedom may have overcome you as you sat back and realized you won't have to deal with those whiny, nasty, dependent, kids all summer.

I think summer evokes different emotions in all of us. It is a time of freedom, but it can also be a time of boredom. I know that I, for one, start to miss my friends a great deal a few weeks into the summer. However, it is also a time envied by all of the other seasons. All of the other seasons just wish they could give off that popsicle licking, sprinkler running, watermelon eating, diving into the pool, overall good feeling of summer!

You may start to feel bored, and may only be thinking of those lazy days of sleeping ahead.
But you also can't deny it: summer brings out something wonderful and magical in us all!

Nice to Meetcha. (:

Hello there, everyone! Well, today is going to be a more personal post than you usually see! I am very happy to have gotten quite a few new followers in the past few days, and I would like to introduce myself to you. :) So...sit back, relax, and let's get to know each other a little bit better, shall we?
Yup, that girl right up there is me! It is a picture of me right before my graduation, on May 28th. I graduated high school! It has been an interesting four years, let me tell you. But enough of that.
I'm Molly! :) I am seventeen, going on eighteen. One thing you really need to know: THEATRE IS MY LIFE!!!!! I love acting - it is my passion, and I am totally in love with it! However, I also enjoy writing and psychology. I love to act, read, sing, dance, bowl, listen to music, and tons of other stuff! I love God!!! I spend way too much time on the computer, but hey, that's just me. I am a pretty shy person, honestly. It might take me awhile to warm up, but once I do I can be pretty hilarious, not gonna lie! I am also pretty deep though, which not everyone realizes. I have a serious side. I am very accepting and open-minded, or at least, that's what I like to think of myself. :)
Right now, it is summer (duh). The past few days I have pretty much just been enjoying that fact. I usually don't enjoy being bored, but it has been kind of nice not to have a planned schedule and routine. I am bowling though, on a summer league with a few friends, which is a blast! I have bowled on a league since the fourth grade, but I have only bowled on summer league since last summer. I am hoping to maybe get a job this summer too, so wish me luck! Really, I just wanted to write this blog so I could introduce myself to my new readers, and allow my old readers to know a little bit more about me! :D I hope you all have enjoyed reading it. And I would ALWAYS love to know more about you, so feel free to share. Leave me comments, and express your thoughts on anything and everything! There is one thing I would like to ask you to do before you before you go though...PLEASE VOTE IN THE POLL CURRENTLY ON MY PAGE! LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE OF ON MY BLOG! I would really appreciate it! :) If you ever would like me to write about something that you do not see I have blogged about already, PLEASE leave a comment! I would LOVE to hear from you, in any way, shape or form! With that said, I hope you all have a great day, and a wonderful summer!!!
Molly (:
