I Won't Give Up

I know what you're thinking.

That Fatima. She always promises she'll do certain blog posts but she never follows through.

I totally admit that is very true for me in the past (I'm sorry I never did that assignment that I assigned, Kira...). But, the project that I introduced a couple weeks ago? I am working on it.

I have found through this writing project I assigned for myself that it is incredibly hard to write about yourself, the experiences you've had, things you've done, everything. I don't know how authors can write full autobiographies. It's even harder when you're trying to write about your experiences when they are ones that you can't even remember yourself. I know writing the "high school" chapter will be way easier because it just passed. The one from when I'm a baby? Not so much.

It is cool to get to hear my mom tell me stuff I didn't know I did when I was younger, and I have learned that I was a very quirky child.

So...I shall post the "first chapter" eventually. I haven't given up on it.

Till then, you can look forward to hearing stories about me being obsessed with clothes, hair made out of scarves, and eating a ton of Nutella.



PS. Did you like the title to this blog post? I was just listening to that song. It's great.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

So this movie is finally coming out!
I had read the book by Stephen Chbosky in eleventh grade Upper Level Comp during reading time. I had not had a book with me, so I had borrowed this one off of Mrs. Cardona's shelf.
It was a fantastic book, and the movie looks like it will be a good one too.

And I just adore Emma Watson.

Also, sidenote: the top comment said that Emma Watson would make a really terrific Alaska Young. What do you think about that, Kira? Do you agree? Just wondering haha.

Project idea?

You know when you're about to hang out with/see someone that you have not interacted with in a long time? And even though you used to be really close to them, you're suddenly self conscious of every part of your existence?

That's how I feel right now writing on this blog.

Okay enough about how I feel like a failure with my blog. Seriously, Fatima, get over yourself.

So, I guess high school is over. How crazy is that? I remember a couple of months ago I made a really dramatic blog post (which, despite being dramatic, was pretty true for how I feel about the situation) about how everything will be different at this time next year, and there's nothing we can do about it. It's just something that's got to happen to everyone at some time, even though it may seem like we're the first people to feel the way that we do about the situation.

Another chapter in our lives has just ended, and we're about to start a new one titled College (ahhh!).

I just kind of had what could be a cool idea for a project for my blog.

What if for the next couple of days/weeks I posted about my experiences thus far from each of the chapters of my life? It could either go poorly or be kind of fun to look at. I think I shall.
