My parabola

A parabola is a function that is significant because-- instead of going straight-- it curves. It can be demonstrated by throwing something up and watching it curve down.
I have a series of freckles on my face that plot out a parabola. I'm quite proud of them. They make me feel like such a nerd but that's a good thing.

A parabola
My parabola. The purple spots are my freckles (they didn't show up that well) and the lines are the x and y axes. Like my mustache earrings?


Mascara and I have a VERY love-hate relationship. As in, I WANT to love it. But it hates me. So I fight it. Every once in a long while it behaves for me but, no matter what mascara I use, it always looks spider-leggy. Seriously. I own THREE DIFFERENT TYPES of mascara!!! Every. Single. One. FAILS ME!! (Today's blog shall be in RED because I am very angry at the mascara.) 
What I want to look like. (My Audrey.. She's so pretty. Her eyelashes were SO AMAZING in "Two for the Road") Source
What I normally wind up looking like.. =( Source
HOWEVER!!!! Eyeliner and I love each other. We've been nigh inseparable since sixth grade. <333 That is true dedication there. I feel weird leaving the house without it so I never do =) sometimes I put it on just to stay at home.

YouTube Coincidence

I love Charlieissocoollike and this poem of his is super amazing. I love how, when the stanzas change, his moustache does too. I also love his accent. Just watch because this.. is pure amazement. And a happy coincidence since I just blogged about moustaches here.

And here is where I blogged about dinosaurs. And here is a video of another one of my favorite YouTubers (Tabby. tabs24x7 and tabs24x7official). Then she visited DinoWorld. AMAZING, right?? Such an awesome coincedence.

Double Popsicles

Many of you will be familiar with this:
it is a double popsicle. And they make me nervous. It's because.. I'm not sure how to eat them. Think about it. They're too big to eat as one giant popsicle. But I'd feel bad double-fisting. Your hand would get all sticky just eating one at a time. But you'd look bad eating two at once.
How do you eat them???? They confuse me. And I harbor a tiny hatred for them, simply for the confusion. This is why I stick to less-confusing desserts. Such as a brownie or a cookie. Nobody can be confused by a cookie. It is a round disk of magic. These are a giant bit of evil on stilts.. If you turn them upside down, they look like devil horns.
So, there's my odd little fact of the day. I get defeated by popsicles. Happy now? Good.

Friday Lovin'

Dinosaurs (as I've mentioned in my Mustache post) are epic. Not, like, "The Illiad" epic. No. Like, super-crazy-rock-awesome epic. Epic with a capital "EPIC". They are that epic. I'm just gonna stop talking and let the pictures do the talking for me.
I want this bar!! It's so ridiculously amazing!  I mean, I have just the bejeweled green balls in my navel right now.  However, the dinosaur... Just.. aah. =) Source

For those of you that live under a rock, "rawr" means "I love you" in dinospeak. I actually taught myself how to draw this, drew it, and then taped it to my wall. #nerd Source

Steampunk. Dinosaurs. Pins. I have died. I have gone to heaven. I am in love!!! Source

Mario.. Dinosaur.. Yoshi.. Rainbow.. Eggs.. #Heaven!!!! Source


Oh. Em. Gee. This. This, right here. This. Is The Shizzz. So pimp. Source

I have a love of bows. About every single day, I have one in my hair.  Source

This made me giggle. Especially since I mentioned above how dinosaurs were the shizzz... It's poop. And dinosaurs. On a leash. I think that's actually a little man that's been crushed by the poop... teehee Source

I should've put this at the beginning. Would've rendered my translation guide irrelevant. Source

SILLY BANDZ!!! I love these things. The dino pack and the farm pack are actually hanging from my student ID as we speak!!! xD Source

Happy Hobbit Day!!

I have a very good reason for celebrating today. I have decided that I am half-Hobbit. And today is Hobbit day because both Bilbo and Frodo were born on this day. So.. HAPPY HOBBIT DAY!!

Mustaches are epic.

That pretty much sums everything up. I have a love of mushrooms, dinosaurs (I'm wearing dinosaur knee socks RIGHT NOW!!!), knee socks, glitter, and mustaches. Flair pins and Silly Bandz are pretty pimpin' too. But this post shall be about mustaches.
Really, just pictures of mustaches. 'cause I think they're cool. No-Shave November is coming up. Ben's participating in it. (Two months away but he promised his friend that he would so.. yeah. =) ) I'm not really sure where along the line I started to think that mustaches were cool. But I do. And I have mustache earrings, tshirts, and stickers.. I'm such a nerd.
Okay, a little more talking. So, while Googling for mustaches, I came across THIS!!!! ---->  I thought it was crazy-epic so I posted it here.. I know, pretty rockstar. Here's what they are:
     "The Great Mustache off is a charity contest and fund raising event for testicular and prostate cancer awareness and research. Founded by Phoenix, Arizona residents Jon Heinl, Jeff Dempsey and Dana Witt in 2007, the organization aims to continue to raise funds through a world-wide mustache contest." Source
 Pretty cool, right? I thought so too so I decided to share. Now!!! ONTO PICTURES!!
I find this belt to be pretty schnazzy. And rather eco-friendly. Source

Do you like mustaches?? Because I like this shirt. Source

Ben and I with our mustaches. I know, we look crazy-sexy. 

This is a freakin' amazing tattoo!! I kind of love her for getting this. Source

This is just a really epic picture of the different types of mustaches. Kyle has a shirt like this and I'm totally planning on stealing it to add to my two other mustache shirts... =) Source
One of my friends got a knitted mustache. I am crazy jealous and plan on stealing it from her. But don't tell her. Shhh..

With the raver community, there's a new form of jewelry called "Kandi." I am absolutely smitten with it. No, I am not a raver. Never been to a rave, doubt I ever will go to one. I just stumbled across Kandi on YouTube and absolutely loved it!! I wear 27 bracelets and 2 necklaces every day. Every one is different. And I have a bajillion different beads! It's so calming, just sitting down and stringing bead after bead onto elastic string. (Pony beads, for those of you who want to know.) 
It's super funny 'cause I'm in high school. Everyone's completely fascinated with my bracelets and I'm like, "y'all know that these were the same beads you played with in kindergarten, right?" but they still think they're super cool. I look like a toddler on acid. (No, this is not a drug endorsement. I never have and never will do drugs. I don't approve of it in adults. DEFINITELY DO NOT GIVE YOUR TODDLERS HARDCORE DRUGS!!!! That is bad.) 
Some pretty kandi =) Source

My kandi 

My beads. (With the exception of my alphabet beads. Those have gone missing =/)

Some pretty kandi Source

ELMO!!! Oh I love Elmo xD Source

I also love mustaches Source

And Pokemon. (I pronounce it Poke-a-mon... Is that weird?) Source

This just amused me. Hot Topic has bracelets like these that support finding a cure for breast cancer. I shall have to get one!! Save the ta-ta's!!! Source

“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up becuase if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
Marilyn Monroe

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
Audrey Hepburn

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”
Audrey Hepburn

 “I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

I have a love of quotes, especially Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Eleanor Roosevelt quotes. These three women are my idols . I believe that if we all live our lives the way they lived theirs, we would be a much happier world.

Teenage Pregnancy

   I went down to my grandparent's today to craft and my Bug was there. We were talking how, whenever I go out with him, I get crazy dirty looks for holding him. This got me thinking: Why is there such a stigma against teen pregnancy?

   In APHG the other day (AP Human Geography), we were talking about teen pregnancy and what the first thing we thought of when we saw a pregnant teenager. First thing said, "She must be a whore." Really? Now must she? Is it possible that she just wasn't educated about sex? Or that she wasn't taught about contraceptives? Or maybe she just fell prey to the "it can't happen to me" mentality that teenagers have? No. That's inconceivable. She MUST be a whore.

   And, another thing, why is it only the girls? Why aren't the guys labelled and put down and bullied? I mean, they did the exact same things that girl did. But I don't hear the fathers being name-called and looked down on. I don't think that's really fair. Nobody ever talks to the guys about prevention of teen pregnancy. They just yell at the girls.

   And why are the girls "whores"? I mean, they can't be the only girls in this world that has dot-dot-dot-ed. ("Mamma Mia" reference xD) but they're the only ones that are publicly judged. I mean, maybe it's because they have to carry the evidence under their sweater ("Juno".. I'm on a roll!!). I'm not sure but, either way, it isn't very fair. And not at all nice.

   Then, when asked for reasons behind their pregnancy (no, I know the reason. I mean.. Just.. keep reading), their home life was attacked. They must be neglected, living in a lower class society, or the daughter of teen parents (which is actually a pretty high reason for why but, still). That wasn't very fair. Again, lack-of-sex-education might be the reason too.

   But enough about my controversial topic. I just thought that, maybe if I can get some people to think, I could start a chain reaction. Maybe the social stigma would be changed. Maybe these girls wouldn't be judged so harshly.

Must she be a whore since she's pregnant? Nope. Source
Let's judge her too!! Source
   Oh and here's one where they satirize the teen pregnancy. "Let's wear too-short, provocative dresses, shove basketballs under them, and dance around EXTREMELY suggestively" (it was one-toe away from the line of suggestive and simply.. yeah. =/ ) is SUCH a good idea for THREE FLOATS in ONE parade. Read the article here, it was so bad that the news wasn't allowed to show it.
   Here's an article about "Slut Shaming", since this is pretty much what this is. Not fair and generally ignorant.

Songs Part Deux

So.. I just really like music. And I want to share my music with y'all. So this is going off my newest YouTube playlist. (Well, some of it. It has a bajillion songs on it and some aren't appropriate for the younger viewers, even if they are FREAKING AMAZING SONGS!!!)
I really love this song. It's super sweet and Ben introduced it to me =) It is "Burn the Night Away" by There For Tomorrow.

"Super Bass" by Nicki Minaj. It's weird because I'm not that fond of Nicki Minaj but I absolutely love this song. It's just so cute.

"The Ballad of Mona Lisa" by Panic! At The Disco. This music video is so fantastically steampunk <333

"F***in' Perfect" by P!nk. I love this song, especially the uncensored version. It just seems so much better when she drops the "F-bomb" (No, I don't choose my music on "shock value" and I normally prefer uncensored versions. This, however, is the exception.)

"Ur So Gay" by Katy Perry. I love this song. Too funny. Reminds me of one of my old friends... *giggle*

I love this song. How can you listen to it and NOT want to dance?? You can't. Jessie J is pretty schnazzy. ("Price Tag" for those of you who want to know.)

And finally.... *drum roll*
"Playing God" by Paramore. I love Paramore, they were really my first favorite band. And this song reminds me of some people I know. Which makes me giggle. Really hard.

Pretty Hair

I so totally love this hair. Just saying. Makes me miss my long hair and my rainbow hair. Oh well.


Or Fall. Whichever you prefer. It really doesn't matter to me what you call it, since I'll always LOVE this season! This season just makes me SO HAPPY! 
I'm really not a summer sort of girl. Actually, I REALLY do NOT like summer! Where I live, it's always super humid. Like, breathe-through-a-straw humid. And hot. Not as hot as it's been in Texas (thank the Lord!!) but still obnoxiously so. And, as my grandmother put it, we live on Devil's Hill so we NEVER get rain. It will pour on the other side of our hill, but my side of the hill? Forget it. Not a drop. (Though we did have some crazy hail.. Looked like it had snowed, even the day after the hail.) 
Enough about summer, 'cause that's just bringing me down. I love autumn. (And I love calling it autumn. But you can call it fall, if it so please you.) Autumn, to me, is Halloween, Renaissance Faires, leaves, apples, cinnamon, comfort food, and so. much. more. Cocoa is the bomb and, while it's technically a wintry beverage, I prefer it in fall. Oooh and all the clothing options that become available!! Plus the weather is just super pretty! It's relatively dry in autumn and the temperature is cool. Occasionally it gets cold but that just means SWEATERS!! Mmmm.. Autumn =) it makes me so happy.
Isn't this just SO ADORABLE??? I can't wait to take Bug apple picking. Source

She's so super cute. I love her outfit!! Source

Fairies xO I LOVE THIS!! (It kind of amuses me how the baby in the middle is all 'WTFluff???' xD) Source

How can you NOT love this?? So pretty. Source

Too cute! Source

I love her hair, her blog, her leaf, and her scarf. Source

Such cool boots! And a nice sweater-vest combo to boot! (pun intended!!) Source

...*drool*... I also love getting to wear my bear hat in the fall and winter. Source

Yum yum yuuuuum!!! Sheperd's Pie!! Almost as good as.... Source
CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS!!! This is my favorite autumn dish. Very Southern. Source

Glow in the Dark Stars

I'm afraid of the dark. It's not a big secret. When I go to bed, I have to have my nightlight on (Mainly one of the Glade electric candles. I've been using my glitter LED snowman a lot lately, though..) and some music playing. Normally it's just a CD and, whenever it's been stopped for too long, I'll wake up, roll over, press play, and go right back to sleep. Anywho, to combat my fear of the dark, I decided to get glow-in-the-dark stars and COVER my ceiling in them. Well, they are all over my ceiling and a few teeny ones are stuck to sequins on my pink chandelier. (I should really get some more...) But I love them. I'm still afraid of the dark and still use my nightlight but the glow stars kind of make my day.

Ohmygosh.. I LOVE this room!! Sleepover?? Source

This room is super adorable!! Source

Happy birthday!!

Today is both my mother's birthday AND my brother's birthday. Isn't that schnazzy?? So.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Kyle is now thirteen (two years younger but two feet taller..) and my mom is STILL twenty-seven. Haha happy birthday guys!!

Adventures in Babysitting

Last night, I got to baby sit my cousin, Bug. My parents went out on date night. His parents went to a festival of some sort and took my brother. So it was just Bug and I. He is such a good baby!! He fell asleep before everyone left and slept for about an hour. He woke up and the only reason I knew he was awake is because I heard little hands scratching on the cradle bars. For the three hours I had him, he didn't fuss at all! (Well, a teensy bit because he was hungry and I wasn't putting him in the high chair fast enough. But a little whimpering, I can deal with.) Then we had the FUNNIEST episode with feeding. He was sitting in his high chair and the jar of baby food (peach. He rather enjoyed it.) was sitting on the tray in front of him. Apparently I wasn't going fast enough and, when I turned my head for two seconds, he grabbed the jar! It was so cute! He was tilting it on its side and just eating right out of it. By the end, he and I were both COVERED in peaches. Haha xD then we went and played on the floor and read some. He loves to read "Where the Wild Things Are" so we read that one twice. Throughout the course of the night, I think we visited our fish tank at least ten times. He was fascinated by that thing! It was so cute.
Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel.

Where the Wild Things Are. It was so cute. He rolled over and laid his head on my leg when I began to read it to him. =)

Some more reading. Such a sleepy baby. His mama came to get him shortly after.

The fish tank. He was so excited and kept hitting the glass.

More fish tank. I thought this picture was super cute.

*sniff sniff* He's old enough to hold his own bottle. Well, mostly. I still had to hold it up with one hand but he had it from there.

The Peaches episode.

Swimmy, swimmy, swimmy. Tummy time!! He liked the Snuffy toy I bought him xD

Sleepy baby. Woot! Score one for the baby sitter!!
