Prom is a stupid tradition, Pretty in Pink was right.

So my Mom made me go to prom, and be surrounded by teenagers, gross I know. It was super awkward. I like to wonder why I even went , it was so awkward or maybe I was so awkward. I talked to everyone in like the first five minutes, so I started to crumple flowers and throw them up in the air. All of my friends/people I went with left me. I became friends with some random strangers. The music they played was pretty good, they played the Vaccines, San Cisco(I requested) and The Arctic Monkeys, which was fun I guess.  I danced with a boy for one song, which I swear was the awkwardest dance ever. He looked kind of like Max Fisher from Rushmore, and neither of us knew how to dance. The decorations were gorgeous. I became the human Facebook status after 10:30ish,because I was so bored and tired, and didn't know what to do. I danced every so often, so that's something. At the dance You could smell the awkwardness, the tiredness and the why am here -ness. I made friends with some of peoples dates, more awkward things that happened. Overall I feel like Andie from pretty in pink had it correct, "prom is a stupid tradition".
 I pin curled my hair it actually stayed curly for once.

 My dress.
Me and the people I spent before hand with.

 Flowers, I stoles, crumbled and threw on the lawn.
 It was Gatsby themed.

I just don't know what to do with myself.

Rant: Ever notice that high-schoolers are kind of the worst, most of us think that we are super bright and excepting. In reality we are mean and exclusive. The way we socialize is even stupid, we sit in groups based on what we've been told about others isn't that horrible? Why can't we all just be friends you know, we could have stuff in common but if you judge only based on what you've been told you are going to end up hating everyone you know. We should all just try to get along.

Hat-H&M Dress-Vintage Shoes- Madewell ( I FINALLY FOUND SOME NICE OXFORDS GUYS)
 This whole week has just sucked, first of all my Mother decided I have to go to prom ALL 4 years of high-school, everyone's invited because my school is so small. Also we have no other dances, this year the theme is Gatsby/Old Hollywood. I don't wanna go. I can just tell I will end up in the corner being anti-social.Am I going to prom or to hell? The other reason this week has sucked is because I'm feeling a bit sad, most of my friends are just randomly getting boyfriends and girlfriends all of sudden. I also don't feel like I really click with anyone in my grade.

 Concert from Last weekend.

The grouplove concert was super fun though, they are so good live they get super into their music and so do the fans, the crowd was so insane. They did a cover of drunk in love by Beyonce. Also Ms Mr covered the Arctic Monkeys which was soooo great. Just so much fun overall. Smallpools were lovely to see again also.

hello sunshine.
I finally saw the Grand Budapest Hotel, it was amazing. I loved that it was a bit more risque than most of Wes Anderson's other movies also it was sooo visually stunning. The actors mostly all played different parts than there usual which made me so happy. I LOVED IT. Can't wait to own it on DVD.

An Art Class. 1939.
The Orwells-Live No One else
Been loving the Orwells lately. 


Best Coast has fit my mood so perfectly this week I can't even describe it.

I look cute and I don't care

Poem: I like to wonder if the world would be different if we chose to live
if I would enjoy life more
or if the sky would be bluer
or if I would’ve said No,
So I wouldn’t have to suffer.

Pom Pom Crown- DIY(I need to add googly eyes and glitter)Undershirt-H&M, Blue Shirt-Thrifted Skirt-Vintage Shoes-Converse Buttons- The bunny's from the craft fair, The Beach Boy's  is from San Francisco and The butterfly one was a gift.
 Lately I've been so busy. I have the play today, which should be Ok. I don't think it was casted well honestly. Last week I had to go camping with my entire grade, it was an accomplishment that no one died. I liked the actual camping part ,but I hated that I couldn't wear a skirt. They also took away our phones for 2 days.  I don't like my grade they are all young, they have younger interests and they socialize younger, they all mostly talk about themselves and aren't into movies and music yet. Half of them are into things I was into in middle school.Than I have the play later today. We'll see how that goes.

it me

The Strypes- Blue Collar Jane
This band is from somewhere in England. I've been super into them lately this song is super addicting. They have a blues rock vibe.

Young Dreams- Young dreams

The Ceremonies said that this is their current favorite up and coming band. This band is super chill and is a different mix of the ceremonies influences. I actually know nothing about them other than that I like them.

Insanity has struck here in Austin and I'm apart of it

So If your unaware every spring break, I go to SXSW like everyday so here's the pictures and everything that happened. It was ok I wish I would've had friends to go to these with, but ALL of my Austin friends were out of town,or aren't into music.

On Wednesday I saw London Grammar, and somehow I met them and discussed music. I was so surprised that I even managed to meet them. They were the nicest people who are surprisingly super short.

He's a little taller than me.

The Orwells whom I saw on Thursday with my eldest brother.(I have two)

Than later that day I saw The Ceremonies who are babes FYI.
Me with the Ceremonies.
They were honestly super nice and awesome all around. They also all three said that they liked my shirt. I also interviewed them for youth-spin which I'm not excited to edit.
 On Friday I was supposed to meet up with some "Friends"(They are honestly more of acquaintances) to see Foster the people, but I didn't see them..So I got stuck with my brother, whom was pissed to have me, which is understandable. I felt bad honestly. We were still super close and everyone in front of me was short enough to see over. The lead singer held the stage super well. Overall it was a good concert. I'm honestly glad I didn't meet up with those kids because they would of been smoking and pressuring me to to do that. I wouldn't want to hang with them so yeah.

Today I woke up at 7ish to see Vance Joy and American Authors, I met them both.
Also I discovered this girl named Jetta who is kinda amazing.

Then I went to Waterloo trying to see the 1975, which didn't happen. I spent the rest of the day and saw...
 Temples. They were so good I don't know how every-time I listen to them I forget how good they are. The lead singers hair is gorgeous. The drummer looked like he wasn't in the band.

and Jake Bugg.

 I even go his autograph.

There's the gist of my spring break. I hope everyone had a great spring break, I know I had a descent one minus the fact I went to every single one of these shows other than Jake Bugg was with a family member. It's a sad fact, but I'll live. I can't wait until I make friends who are into concerts and the things I'm interested in. I know that's a few years away because every concert I went to was mostly Juniors and stuff.
