the dream I often have.

To work at a glorious store, five minutes away from my abode.

I applied today.

Now everytime it's 11:11, or I see the evening star, or I toss a penny into a fountain,


is what I'm wishing for.

If you can guess what I bought yesterday, I'll give you a gold star.

And if you already know, DON'T SPOIL IT! ;) But seriously, people.

Clue #1

I have been wanting this for a long time.

Clue #2

By buying this item, I have joined a tranportation revolution (or so I like to think).


Clue #3

You know you want one too.

It's pretty, it's fabulous, it's incredible. Any guess what it may be? Let's hear it...

who am I?

Sometimes I am not sure. I'm a dreamer. I have goals to meet. I dream of life after high school, but also of life during high school. Friendships and relationships pepper my daydreams, and I sprinkle them over reality. I am an individual: a unique version of the seventeen year old girl. I love to love. I love to be loved. Musical fantasies often occupy my thoughts. Singing is my escape, and a way for me to express myself, though not the only way I do so. I talk. A lot. I act. Sometimes I show off. I try to avoid it. I love pretty things. Being a girl is wonderful. Random obsessions sometimes distract me.  I'm smart. Writing gives me a thrill. I love to read and get to know characters in books. I daydream about historical heroes. I use their  examples to make sure I'm living right. I am a girl.
I will succeed.
