if i was a robot



I've been playing it during lunch with my friends for the past two days. Guess what though? I'm HORRIBLE at basketball. I'm one of those people that instantly try and get rid of the ball as soon as I get it. I don't try dribbling, and I rarely try shooting. My mind just keeps chanting, "Pass the ball. Pass the ball." -.- I hope that changes, haha. I want to get better at basketball!

I think with most sports, having skill is important, but actually being passionate about the sport and being able to really get into the game are more important. That's what I lack with lots of sports (and other things)...that passion to want to do my best...that mindset to focus completely on the task at hand.

Well anyways, I love my friends for making basketball fun. I love how I can be pretty open and myself when I'm around them. I love not having to closely monitor what I do or say.

Geeeeeezzzzz, how did I manage to meet such awesome people?


There's a chance that Keyew might be moving...

If she does, she won't be moving that far, but far enough that she'll have to go to a different school. :( I know this might be selfish since her mom's been wanting them to move for awhile, but I don't want her to move! Keyew's been the best friend I've made since high school started, and I was hoping we could go all four years of high school together.

I guess whatever happens happens...

If she does end up moving, we can still hang out though. :) Maybe not often because we'll live even farther away from each other, but it's not like she's moving to a different country.


In other news...I have to cut back on how often I blog. Blog entries take me a long time to make, and I can't be blogging every day. That's why I didn't blog yesterday. :P I love blogging, but it's time for me to get serious about school and focus more on it. :\

I thought I'd do a review for a product that I use:

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

This product is claimed to be oil-free, hypoallergenic, and noncomedogenic.

The back of the bottle says that this moisturizer will:
  • Leave skin soft and smooth
  • Improve skin texture
  • Even out skin tone
  • Improve skin clarity
  • Prevent breakouts
  • Clear up blemishes

I give it 4.5/5 cookies.

I've always liked Aveeno products, so I was happy when my mom gave me this product. I use it in the morning after washing my face. I have a combination skin type, meaning that my skin is dry in some areas (cheeks) and oily in others (t-zone). I've been using it since 1/30/10, and it seems like there's still a good amount of product left in the bottle.

Let's start with the pros of this moisturizer.

  • Pleasant smell: It has a light, flowery smell. The flowery scent may be a con to some, but the smell isn't strong at all, so I like it.
  • Improved skin: I noticed that it did leave my skin smoother and softer like it said it would! :) Just in general it helped make my skin look and feel better.
  • Less oil: This product is good at controlling the oil/shine on my t-zone.
  • Leaves skin feeling clean.
  • A little goes a long way: I put just a small amount on my finger, less than a dime-sized amount, and that's enough to cover my face.
  • Design of the bottle: I like how the moisturizer gets pumped out of the bottle, and the appearance of the bottle is nice (those are very minor points though).
Now for the reasons why I took off half a cookie for it.

  • It's $17 for a 4 fl. oz. bottle (of course prices may vary). That's a little pricey. However, like I stated in my pros, this products does go a long way.
  • Doesn't moisturize that well: This product leaves my skin dry at times, and it could definitely moisturize better.
Overall, my opinion of this product is very good. I would recommend it to a friend.

Mini spam of things I thought were amusing. :)

I went shopping with Keyew today, and I'm exhausted.

We tried on some more prom dresses, just like last time we went shopping. We were both just really tired for whatever reason. We felt like curling up on the dressing room floor and taking a nap. :P

Today was still really good though. Free samples + spicy bbq chicken + strawberry cheesecake milkshake + jeans + prom dresses + random conversations + laughing so hard you cry = a happy girl.
Sunburnt. 04/16/2010
Today was a good day. :)

I woke up and checked my phone: 2:34am. I remember thinking to myself, "OMG! 2..3..4!" and hoped it was some kind of sign or something before falling back asleep and waking up to my alarm. :P

I like thinking that little things like that are signs/hints/predictions. They probably aren't though, haha. Just mere coincidences...

Today was clash of the classes. Freshmen were supposed to wear yellow, sophomores green, juniors blue, and seniors red. Because there was a rally at school today, there was a special schedule. Classes were only 35 minutes long each. That was pretty awesome. MyEm0.Com

The rally itself wasn't bad. The girls sitting behind Keyew and me were irritating though. They talked shit about everyone who performed at the rally. When the cheerleaders did their routine, the girls behind us were calling them sluts and whores.

I'm not trying to sound stuck up or anything, but I think that's just really disrespectful and uncalled for. Like what gives them the right to call those cheerleaders sluts?! (My brother would be a smart arse and say that freedom of speech gives them the right.) I hate when people say nasty things for no reason.

Before the rally, I had half an hour of freetime and just sat on the stairs with my friend and talked. A talk that makes me happy when I think about it. :)

I love one-on-one talks with friends where you learn a lot about them. I feel a lot closer to her now.

Ever since high school started, the friendships I've made have either been hit or miss. It's kind of sad how many friendships didn't really work out or died down. I just need to remember all the amazing friends I've made and become closer with though because, honestly, the good friendships I've made completely outweigh the bad ones.
Facts game. 04/15/2010
I was tagged by the awesome seriouslyBLUE♥ to share some facts about myself!

When I first made a blog, I had no idea it would become such a big part of my life. I just thought it was a place where I could talk about my day and get my thoughts out, but it's much more than that. I've met so many amazing people as a result of being in the blogging community! MyEm0.Com Plus, I depend a lot on my blog now. I treat it like it's a close friend. Sometimes I don't feel like talking to anyone/don't want to burden anyone, so I go to my blog to get my feelings out.

I have many, many, many, obsessions: robots, dinosaurs, Kid Cudi, B.o.B., and most recently, Maroon 5. I've listened to some of their songs before, but I guess I didn't really realize how awesome they were until now. That happens a lot with me...sometimes I listen to a song for the first time and don't think much of it. I might even not like it at all. Then the second time I listen to it, like maybe a week later, something just changes and I end up loving it.

I love food. I'm the type of person that eats when I'm sad...I eat my feelings away. I eat out of boredom as well. Every time I walk through or by the kitchen, I have to grab some type of food as a snack. It's a miracle I'm not obese. MyEm0.Com I can't really eat junk food anymore though. :( My body just kind of rejects it? SO, I'm trying to eat healthier so my body doesn't hate me. That's why I bought baby carrots. Om nom nom.

I'm craving ice cream. Green tea ice cream is amazing.

It scares me how I'm so technology-dependent.

I really want to get lost in a good book right now...the kind of book that has you staying up till 3am because you just can't put it down. I haven't read a book on my own in a long time. The only books I read now are the ones I have to read for school. That's pretty sad.

I have terrible eyesight. This is because when I was younger, I was a big bookworm and would read in bad lighting all the time. I got my first pair of glasses when I was 8. The only other person in my class who had glasses at such a young age was my best friend. I guess we were besties for a reason, haha.

Unfortunately, I do not look this cute with (or without) glasses.

I haven't had a crush on someone in a really long time. I wish I would though. I want that feeling of butterflies. MyEm0.Com Too bad I don't really have any control over this.

My little sister is my favorite person. She says the cutest things and gives me hugs to cheer me up. It's sad to see her grow up because I want her to stay a little kid. I want her to stay young so that she can continue enjoying a carefree life. I wish someone had told me to cherish childhood more. Growing up is not as fun as it seemed when I was little.

New pencils, new crayons, new books, new money, freshly cut grass...all those things make me happy. They all have a nice smell.

I daydream way too much. I daydream about finding my soulmate a lot, haha. I like coming up with love stories. I always include heartbreak somewhere in the middle though, but in the end there's always a happily ever after. :) I guess I kind of like the idea of flaws in a relationship...that from start to finish, everything isn't perfect, and that's what makes it a good love story.

Hope these facts were somewhat interesting, haha. I know this is a really wordy entry!

It's MY turn to tag people now!

I tag: Hamtaro, Zwendraaa, Timami, Steve (although I doubt he'll do this MyEm0.Com), AND anyone who feels like doing this facts game!

Of course if you don't want to, you don't have to. ;)
Camera tossing. 04/14/2010

^ That is seriously the most annoying thing ever. Can't they have a third button that says "GTFO"?!

Anyways. How have you guys been? I hope well! MyEm0.Com

I saw something pretty cool on flickr just a little while ago.

How was this awesome picture taken?

By tossing the camera up into the air!

I need to try this some time. I think it's cool how you can't know for sure how the photo will turn out...I like that element of randomness. Being the clumsy person that I am, I wonder if I would be able to catch the camera after tossing it. :P

Aiyahhhh. 04/13/2010

I have to work on my art. :( We're doing a mixed media project right now: oil pastel/crayon + water color. I wish I was better at art! I don't even know what I'm doing right now to be honest. I'm just slapping down some color and hoping that it turns out somewhat decent. :P

These are the objects I'm trying to draw:

This is the part where you guys can make fun of my artwork.

"AHAHAHA, your drawing doesn't look anything like the actual thing."

MyEm0.Com I know :(

I really want to blog a wordy entry and do some blog surfing, but I can't because I have tests to study for.


School is just a vicious cycle for me.

I don't pay attention during class, so when it's time for a test, I study like mad the day before. After the test is done and over with, my brain just chucks away whatever information I just studied in the time span of about two days. This happens every time I have a test.

I really need to improve my studying skills and must work harder or else this slacking off will catch up to me. It already is starting to because high school is so much different from middle school. I thought that I could goof off for the most part during high school like I did in middle school and still get decent grades, but I was WRONG. High school has been a big wake-up call for me.

You just can't get anywhere without some hard work. My middle school days are over, and I need to focus and actually work hard now so that I can get into a good college and then get a good-paying job.

Dammit, thinking about the future freaks me out. It just seems so bleak and sad...we spend part of our lives trying to gain knowledge, which is good, but then we just work our lives away after that. I wanna know how many people in this world are actually happy with their jobs.

Being a little kid is seriously the best. No problems, just a whole lot of energy and carefree days.
