Dear World,
The other day I found out that my best friend and I have significantly different ideas as to how one should lead their “romantic life”. She’s had 5 boyfriends this year. Me? Zero. She believes giving everyone a chance (well not EVERYONE, but a great deal of people) of becoming her boyfriend. Me on the other hand, well, I am more of a keep my heart caged in my ribs and don’t let anyone get near it (at least not until I’ve seen the world). I suppose this may very well have to do with the fact that I was born an old soul, and therefore am much too wise beyond my years.

So, who is right in this situation? Well, who is to say? I mean, we’re both happy, and though her relationships are for the most part short-lived, she’s happy, as am I.

I guess we all wander through this life in different circles and that’s what keeps the human race alive, maybe.

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
To explain the lacrosse game I just played in would be an impossibility. Everything about it was beautiful; raising money to fight breast cancer, scoring a goal with .02 seconds remaining, going into overtime, and then, sadly losing. Yet we played like sisters, and it was the most beautiful act of playing I have yet to see in this sport.

I love you girls, sisters forever.

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
I really don’t think I should be as excited as I am to see a Pixar movie… but I totally am! I’m going to see UP with some friends (we’re all between 16-18 years of age) and we could possibly be the giddiest group of people in there. I’m sure I am more excited than any 6 year old…

I suppose it’s because I’ve grown up with Pixar, and it’s never failed me. It’s brought me the beloved Toy Story, the unforgettable Finding Nemo and the emotionally eye-opening Wall-E.

There’s nothing I love more than a cartoon full of morals and life lessons!

Sincerely,
Shea

P.S. Bermuda’s in about twenty days, I’m really looking forward to once week of serenity…

Dear World,
I am really counting on a killer summer because of how stressful these last few weeks have been. I need to get away from it all and I am thinking Bermuda is going to be the perfect place to do so. I leave June 19th and say goodbye to it all for a week! I need this, I really do. Junior year is stressful as it is, but adding on lacrosse stuff, last-minute test crams that the teachers feel are necessary, and the busy-work projects that my AP teachers are throwing at us are weighing me down, and this is very unlike me. For the most part, I’d like to think I am very good at handling stress, but boy, I’ll tell you, this is really pushing my limits.

I suppose it could be worse right? For the time being I’ll just silently repeat these mantras; Bermuda, Summer, Vacations, Sun, swimming, beaches, happiness

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
It’s a shame, all singers with breath-taking voices are, for the most part, lacking in the looks department. As shallow and harsh as that may be, you know it’s true.

Dear World,
Today is the definition of perfect. Is absolutely gorgeous out. I spent a good part of the day sitting in my garden drinking tea and reading Jodie Picoult books. Is that not perfection?

Now I have to end this perfection and start my math homework. That is the polar opposite of perfection, that it is.

G’bye and stay well.

Sincerely,
Shea

p.s. I saw this amazing quote (apparently it is from Pans Labrynth or something but I just like it because)

“And he would wait for her until he drew his last breath.”

Dear World,

I have decided that this blog needs a fresh, new look.  I quite like it actually (I made the header myself).  I suppose this is because this blog is supposed to show how I am evolving during my last few years of high school, and the appearance is one of those things.

 

So I have been thinking a whole new way about my body.  I have always been healthy, you know athletic, proper height to weight ratio, etc. but as a teenager I have assumed nothing will catch up to me.  Though I do eat healthy and have good habits, I have begun to realize that what I eat now will affect who I am in fifty years.  So I have begun to drink more water, laugh more and love my body and all that it does for me.  I’m kind of liking this whole ‘fresh start’  for everything.

 

Well, the sun just came out and the sky is blue and the birds are chirping, so I’m assuming that’s my cue to head outside and enjoy this beautiful day while it lasts.

 

Sincerely,

Shea

Dear World,
JE SUIS TRES TRES FATIGUE! Prom was last night, and was an absolute blast, and because of that, I am super tired.

We had half a day and after I got out of chemistry I went to SubWay and then got my hair done. I then got ready at my friend’s house and we drove to another friend’s house to take pictures and go to Prom!

I had to get there early (due to prom committee commitments) but it was still rather fun. The food and music were great, and the only downfall was there was another girl there with my dress (though I barely saw her) and some other girls with very similar dresses. I shrugged it off (even though I thought it was a one-of-a-kind), until a lacrosse teammate of mine came up to me with a very similar dress. I tried to lighten the mood and say ‘Oh look we’re twins!’, but apparently she was too mad and started to cry, blaming it on me, saying she got hers in NYC and that it was the only one made. I didn’t really know what to say, seeing as I had no idea she had purchased the same one as me, and to be honest, I thought she handled the situations very immaturely.

Other than that, my night was spectacular! I’ll leave you with some pictures

sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
Have you ever felt like you were unappreciated? I don’t have much to complain about. I have an amazing family, fantastic friends, and just an overall adventurous life. I am blessed with so many things, but from time to time I think it’s ok to let off some steam.

I am the kind of person who will always listen to anyone’s problems. I give advice (even if I don’t always following my own) and I like seeing other people happy. So, sometimes I think people forget that this is a choice I make, that I don’t have to be this way, and they just take advantage of me, assuming I’ll always be there. Sometimes people forget that I have feelings too, and that I’m a person. There is a limit to how much I’ll let others step over me, and I think the line has been crossed. It’s time for me to assert myself, in the most delicate way possible. I can’t be a doormat. This is my life.

Oh by the way I won Vice Presidency!

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
So we got year books today, and though I love blogging, I sort of kind of would much rather be reminiscing over this past year! So… au revoir!

Sincerely,
Shea
