Perfection +Things I’ve Learned

I just want to be one of those people who has it all together.

Ya know the type; the one who, when the teacher gives you 5 minutes to study before a test, doesn’t even look at their notes because they already studied plenty the night before.

The one who has never been late to anything in her life.

The one whose locker is totally organized and color coded.

The one who never seems frazzled or overwhelmed.

They’re probably ridiculously good at everything,

And their hair, always perfect. Like perfectly perfect.

And of course they always have plenty of time to spend doing all the things important to them.

I’ve discovered that person, that seemingly “perfect’ person, doesn’t exist. Even the ones who seem to have it all together, in actuality don’t. I need not strive for perfection. If I can simply be a little better, a little kinder, a little more organized, a little more loving each day than I was the day before, I am, in fact, succeeding.

But if she/he did exist, that person is so not me, like at all. I’m the one who takes my government notes with me to lunch because it just hit me how unprepared I am for the test next period. I have yet to remember to take that locker shelf to school that I’ve been meaning to take for the last 4 weeks. I get frazzled at the simplest things. You don’t even want to see me in my mad frenzy out the door in the mornings. I’m definitely not ridiculously good at everything. And I think my hair is going to stage a revolt if it spends one more day in a pony-tail.

Most importantly, I’ve neglected you, my dear bloggy friends. In the frantic frenzy of school, homework, college applications, sports, life, etc., my blog has unintentionally been pushed down on my to-do list (not that I actually have one of those, see above). Sleeping has also been significantly moved down, so don’t feel too bad.

But, blogging it important. I miss it. Maybe I’ll never be someone who blogs everyday. I’m okay with that. But, posting at least weekly (maybe more often) is something I’m willing to commit to. This little month-long hiatus is not okay.

I may not have it all figured out, but I’ve certainly learned a few things in my years of living.

1. Teachers like it when you make a cookie cake documenting how much you love their class. It may or may not guarantee you an A for the quarter. You didn’t hear it from me.

2. Cupcakes are marvelous. I need a job at that place.

3. Friday night football games are funnnn.

4. Everything seems more funnnn if you type the last letter in a word multipleeee timessss.

First Day of School Lunch

5. I really don’t like packing lunches. But, I’m trying to come up with creative ways to make lunch packing easy and more fun. Ideas? I might just do a post on it in the future.

6. You peeps like recipes. Hence, I’ll post one soon.

Laterrrrrr.
