The 1975 performing Change of Heart

If you haven’t checked out their music you are missing out. They just released their new album I like it when you sleep, for your so beautiful yet so unaware of it and I was more than happy with it, plus their music videos are phenomenal. I was even kinda shocked that I caught my dad singing one of their songs and that my aunt and uncle new who they where and basically sang the whole album #famgoals.

5 Things High School Girls Keep In Their Lockers

Today I will be giving you an inside view of a teenage girls locker, you may think she has the basic necessities like your backpack, binders and books but it is actually the complete opposite. (This post is not meant to offend anyone because most of these items are stashed in my locker, it’s just for a simple laugh) So with out further a do let me show you the crazy space that is “the locker”

5. Shoes

This is something I am guilty of. The amount of shoes I my locker are ridiculous, especially because we are limited to all black shoes, but I still find a way to showcase a wide variety. I have my black VANS, my black boots, my gym shoes, and my black TOMS, surprisingly that is a normal amount, most of my friends have a minimum of 6 shoes in their lockers. The Excuse: You can never have enough shoes, plus some shoes so don’t go with the uniform. The Truth: Hun, no shoes will make the uniform look better…it’s a uniform.

4.Other Peoples Stuff

I find it oddly frustrating when people ask to put things in my locker, well why don’t you stop being lazy and walk to yours, its only across the hall. Obviously I don’t let people store stuff in my locker considering mine is bursting at the seams with my backpack, 4 binders and text books, but others decide to do otherwise. Half the things in a teenage girls locker consists of her best friends stuff.  I mean we don’t share lockers, so why does yours look like we do. The Excuse: She asked me to, I can’t say no. The Truth: Well, you said no to the teacher who asked you to roll down you kilt, it’s really not that hard.

3. Clothes

I understand if you have a sweater and a scarf, but don’t complain that you a have no room when your locker looks like a Abercrombie and Finch outlet. Girls have 3 sweaters, 7 tops, and 2 pairs of leggings…it sounds like the 12 days of christmas song: Locker Edition. The kicker is they say they need more room for their clothes, so instead of taking out useless crap, they take out the Math textbook. “I’ll keep it in my friends locker,” they say, “Who needs binders, it’s just school.” The Excuse: I need options, you never know who you will see in the hallways and I have to look cute when I ride the bus home The Truth: Everyone looks equally as bad, who ever you see in the hallway doesn’t care what you look like…only you do

2. Picture of Hot Celebrities

I will not judge because I too have spent time taping pictures of Channing Tatum to my friends locker for her birthday. The Excuse: Who dosn’t wanna see a hot boy shirtless as you open your locker for Geography class The Truth: Well, the excuse is true

1. Perfume

This is by far the biggest thing in a highschool girls  locker. When I walk past a girl who happens to be opening her locker, I brace myself for the array of department store scents that fill the air around me. God! The whole top shelf is filled with body sprays, perfume and occasionally a body butter, it looks like I walked into a Bath and Bodyworks store. The most popular scents to hit the front row of the top shelf is the Victoria Secret PINK perfumes, the whole hallway smells like Warm and Cozy. The worst part is when they ask their friends what they want to smell like and they name 56 smells while their at it “do you like Pink Chiffon, Pink Friday, Warm Vanilla Sugar, my favourite Beach Day, SunKissed, and the list goes on and on. The Excuse: You always need to smell good (which is true) The Truth: Yes the excuse is true, but you don’t need the Macy’s perfume counter in your locker.

So that is my little adventure into the locker life, I hope you found it amusing. If you want to see any more high school rants and tips, let me know in the comments or the Contact Me section. Until then check out my first post about high school here.

5 Things I Wish I Knew About Highschool

Hello Everyone, Todays post is 5 things I wish I knew about high school. Before I start I would like to share a bit of background knowledge about myself, I just started high school and even though I was told a lot of helpful tips about how to act, were to sit at lunch and how not to wear you uniform (yes… I have to wear a uniform, UGHHH the Horror!!!) there are some things I wish I was aware of now that I am in highschool.

1. Boy’s get Uglier

I am not going to sugar coat this one. Boys get a hella’ alot more unattractive. Unless you go to high-school with boys that look like they came out of a Hugo Boss advertisement, then you know what I am talking about. To be honest I went into high school with high hopes for guys… unfortunately the out come was a lot lower, i mean there are a few good looking guys but come on! NO body decided to tell me to lower my standards, God! I mean they prepare us for exams and they can’t prepare us for disappointment. i really wish someone told me… it is a cruel and unusual joke.

2.Cliquey Chicky

You know why the movie Mean Girls is so successful? Because it’s TRUE. Well there aren’t any outrageous pranks or girls getting hit by busses, there are cliques and tonnns of them. I knew there were going to be popular people but I didn’t think it was going to be so outrageously filled of ‘bitches that wear pink on Wednesdays’ but I guess drama never sleeps. I just wished someone could have given me a warning or something to let me know that it was going to be this intense. The key to avoid drama is as simple as avoiding the cliques, every now and then I talk to these people but usually if you stay out of their way, they will stay out of yours.

3.Don’t Take Things To Heart

This is more of a serious one. I have been made fun of… everyone has but the one thing I wish someone could have told me it would be this. Already this year I was called “a witch” without makeup and the fact that my “laugh was fucked” and I was upset at this person for a while.. then i realized he was a dumbass. Moving on from these little things would have made my life a bit easier if i would have known.

4. The Work Load

UGHHH! I was told there was going to be a hell of alot of work but not like this. I have 4 hours of homework every night, and half the time I want to pull out my hair. People in the movies have the life of the party in high school but what they don’t show you is the bitchy teacher, the stress acne, the 5 hour study periods ohhh and my favourite the no-time to shower fiasco. I just wish I would have been notified so that I could have cherished my elementary school days.

5. NO SOCIAL LIFE!

This goes hand in hand with the last one. I basically have no time for friends, parties and/or school dances but yet people say “have the real high school experience” I’LL GIVE YOU REAL! You have zero time to eat let alone try out for plays or get drunk at a party. I miss the nights were I thought that counting coins at the kitchen table was homework.

Well I hope you all enjoyed my post about all the dampers that high school puts on your life… not to leave on a negative note but i thought it was relatable. Untill next time,
