Dynamics of a Blog

I feel that as this blog continues (it's been over six months) and slowly comes out of hiding, it's important to get some things out in the open. I'm writing this as myself, Lilia, and about to be open about what is included in this blog and what will probably never be.

Most importantly, there are three of us. We are all individuals and have different beliefs and perspective. Which is why, for the most part, we stick to topics like music, art, my nail polish, etc.

You probably won't find political meanderings or outright opinionated pieces on here very often. Besides for the occasional post about our vacations or major dramz, we stray away from getting into our actual lives.

All of this is also only for the time being. We have one more year of high school and after that who knows where we'll be. We may suddenly be those people that post their exploits on the interwebs and think it's all good.

I just wanted to clear up any misconceptions about who we really are. Trust me, the things on this blog are not the only things we care, or think about. What we put out here is only what we choose to.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.


(508): those are such fre$h shoes
(1-508): going to ignore the use of the word "fresh" in a sentence that isnt related to produce and/or other food stuffs and especially the part where you replaced an "s" with a dollar sign

Manicure Monday

This week's nail polish is "Lighten up, you're two pence!" from OPI. It's a burnt orange, with a lot of shine to it. It would be much better suited for the fall, but I'm not much of a planner so it will do for the week.

Yesterday I went to Target with my mom and aunt and our first stop once inside was the clearance bins, of course. There, I found a set of 8 blank cards (4 with polka dots, 4 without), and a little spool of 6 ribbons, a yard each. They were both only $1 so I got them (well, my mom technically got them). Since then I've been busy decorating my cards. So far I only know what I'm going to do with one of them and I've made three.

Here are a couple of my projects:

1) I don't really like the cloud so I'm toying with putting ribbon on it to make the shape a little more cloud-like. For this one I just glued the ribbon directly onto the card.

2)On this one, I started with a paper cut-out of a heart and glued the ribbon onto that so I could go in after and trim it down. Before attaching the heart to the card it looked like this:

I can't post the third card quite yet because it's being sent to someone who might see this and I want them to see it in their mailbox before they do on the internet!

Manicure Monday

Manicure Monday has made it another week. My current color of choice is "OPI Ink," a dark, sparkly purple which has been mistaken for black on more than one occasion. But when the sunlight hits just right, it's magical.

(937): Watching NYC prep. Doing a shot everytime one of these d-bags flips his hair. I give it 10 minutes before alcohol poisoning set in.

Manicure Monday?

HA as if I could paint my nails every Monday. But for now, it works. Today I tried out a new color that's been sitting in my nail polish bin forever. It's by Pure Ice which is probably not a brand you've ever heard of. And it's called "Avoid heat and flame." Just kidding, but that's basically all it says on the bottle. This is what it looks like:

Yep, it's yellow! It said to apply two coats, but I had to do at least three to get a solid color with no see-through bits.
I realized this is probably a really boring post, but I'm kind of addicted to nail polish right now, so just bear with me.

As a new installment, I think featuring messages from the website texts from last night is a pretty good idea for chill Saturdays. To kick this off, here are my two favorites from recent days.

(914): last night you decided it was time to "get organized" and "straighten out your life." You pulled out a bag of troll dolls, sorted through them and got nostalgic. You demanded both andy and i take one and keep it forever.

(1-641): STOP listening to that song

A late night thought

People change. Friends drift apart, go to different schools, move away, lose touch, make new friends. There's a reason we aren't friends with the first graders we hung out with back elementary school. We have grown up, bored by high school, and small little quirks annoy the hell out of us. We have grown out of our crushes, our old friends (most of them), and our old favorites. Who is to say that we wont grow out of love? Why trust change?

Having free time to think makes me more cynical.

Watch 8.10-8.35 please

As this is posting, I am boarding the bus to summer school and I'm pretty sure I'm wishing this was my day...

I'm currently enjoying the weather... Well kind of. Here's the last half hour in pictures.

Initially, happy to be outside
Is that an ant? Damn, it's huge

Did something get in my mug?!

We'll see how much longer I can last.

Lately, in music specifically, there's been a lot of talk about "going hard" on tracks and not being "soft," and while I just typed that out I realized the sexual innuendo of it all. Nonetheless, I've gotten a little fed up with all these male artists exerting their masculinity and insisting they're tough guys (or putting up a tough guise) so I've gathered some examples of women "going hard," or just being boss as the case may be, in the music industry.

1) Beyoncé

2) Nelly Furtado

3) Christina Aguilera & 4)Lil Kim

5) So I wasn't sure about this one, but Fergie. Because she knows you want her, but I totally believe she would "spray your ass with mace."

6) M.I.A. Obviously.

And newcomer to the scene, 7) MPHO

Before I had planned to go to Nicaragua with all my camp friends, I had been hoping to go on a program that we call, Extended Trip. It's usually about 5 to 10 girls, with leader, Steve. They venture up to Canada, about a six-hour drive from our location in New Hampshire, to dive into the woods and have some nature-ridden fun.
However, I'm not in the age range to go on the trip anymore, I missed it by a year. So this fall, when I was applying to skip off to Nicaragua, I informed the director of my wish to both go to Nicaragua and go on extended trip. Well, that easily turned into a mess. I could only go if there were an odd number of girls, since canoes had to be evenly filled. I wasn't too disappointed, Nicaragua was going to be amazing as well. And I let any thoughts of white water canoeing and long van rides leave my mind.
Well, I was shocked and thrilled to learn this morning that one girl wasn't able to go on the trip anymore. I feel badly that she can't come, but when I got that random call offering me a place on the trip, I jumped at the offer. A normally two thousand dollar trip for free. Three weeks of adventuring in Canada. White water canoeing. No electricity. I'm going off the grid for a bit the summer, and I look forward to every second of it.

Brake for turtles

Last friday afternoon I departed from my lovely abode in suburbia for the great expanse that is Lake Winnepesaukee. We have just discovered the dial-up here, thus the wait for contact. 
The week so far has delivered us bleak weather, the only sunny day being last Saturday. However, we have managed to go sailing three times, once being caught in the rain.

On our way to the market in Wolfeboro, a guy blocked our way for a turtle who was hobbling across the street. I know that in most places, people would stop to usher a turtle across the street, but this man's kindness and the friendliness of the people around here was a nice way to start off my summer. That, and finishing off two books from my pile.

A nice salad I made: Mixed baby greens, carrots, tomatoes, almonds, goat cheese with cranberries, and french vinaigrette.

p.s. I coming home today.
