Dear World,
The more I think about it, the more I realize that this blog is truly the only place I reveal even remotely anything about myself on the internet.

My myspace profile reads: I’m shea, and I’m as free as a bird. It has about six pictures of me (mostly travel) and the rest is a mystery. My facebook has a lot more pictures granted, and explains a bit more about my music taste and such, but honestly and truly, this is reall yhe only place via web that I portray who I am. Naturally, I do this on purpose, because if you don’t leave some things up to mystery then people will see you as a bore and won’t want to figure it out.

That was just all in my head so I thought I’d spew it out.

Oh, I started my babysitting job today and it went rather well, even though I got my butt kicked in mario kart by a five year old! What can I say, I don’t really do video games…

This blog is becoming more and more random, but whatever, it’s mine, right?

I can’t believe I started this almost a year ago (in September) and I was all excited about Junior year. Now I’m a Senior, and it’s going to go by faster than I want it to. GAHH! jhgfghsdfhlsdjhfghsgdfhgsfhgsfljhgsdfl!

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
I’m beginning to plan my summer college visits with my parents, and the more I plan, the more I am beginning to feel passionate about neuroscience. Trust me, this is nothing set in stone, because I have been changing my mind for years, but it is definitely grasping my attention- at least for now.

I have always known that I wanted to go into science (well, almost always), and these past few years of high school have helped determine that. I am super obsessed with biology and anatomy and psychology (all of which I am taking next year) and I love solving problems that have no known solution. Since that age of five I have been studying people and their vices, habits, etc. to determine what makes the human race so different.

Neuroscience includes all of what I am passionate about, and holds the opportunity of exploring the unknown. Who knows, this could all change tomorrow…

All I know is that whatever I do, I want to look forward to doing it everyday, and I want to be able to travel, lots and lots of travel.

Ok, that rant is done, I think I was just reassuring myself.

Soccer starts today! Well, summer soccer does, and I start my babysitting/nannying job tomorrow. It’s three days a week for four kids, not too shabby.

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
Bermuda was amazing!

Firstly, the cruise was a blast and we met so many cool people. We (meaning my friends Abbie, Katherine and myself) met two guys who lives just north of us who just graduated high school. They were really cool and fun to hang out with. We also met a guy who works for obama (I almost died of excitement) and a family who loves near my relatives. There was so much to do and so many cool shoes (comedy, magic, dancing singing, talent) to name a few and we were always swimming and lounging in the hot tub. At night, we would dance under the stars and it was all so perfect.

Bermuda was fantastic. All of the houses were painted pastel colors and everyone drove a moped. We got from place to place on pink buses that drove very fast and crazy, and I got a shirt that said I survived the buses! The first day we swam at snorkel cove, and the next day we drove around the islands and explored the crystal caves. The last day we went to the shops and Rachel, the adults and I went to Horse Shoe bay where the water was warm and green and there were cliffs in the ocean! The people were so nice and I got to sit next to some locals on the bus.

It was all so perfect, and though I missed my family and friends back here at home, I could have gone another week. We got accustomed to the ship and it became our second home. Abbie and I made up names for people who we saw all the time (ie; bates boy, sexy back, long-haired boy, stalker, etc.) and I feel in love with our cruise director who was british and perfect!

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
So… I’m officially a Senior… and it doesn’t feel like it! I guess it’s because I took some finals early so the REAL last day of school is tomorrow, but I’ll be on my way to BERMUDA! I guess when all my other peers become Seniors, I’ll feel like I do too!

Ok, ok, so besides the amazing fact that I’m a Senior (I can’t believe I started this blog as a newbie Junior), I am leaving for Bermuda tomorrow in a limo around 9! I won’t have laptop or cell service, so I won’t be blogging for a week, but hey, I’ll lots of great stories for when I come back!

I’m off to my lacrosse banquet.

I’ll see you all in a week (the 26th)!

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
So, as usual, the infamous vlogger/blogger HayleyG.Hoover has inspired me to create a post about my love life. Are you ready for this?!

Shea’s Love Life History:
zero.

Ok, ok, so it’s not like I have been completely lust-less throughtout my preteen and teenage years, but as for love? None. Am I complaining, not at all! I had the traditional ‘flings’ in elementary. You know the ones? You ignore each other as much as possible, and casually point him out to your friends as he plays a sweaty game of wall ball with the other eleven year olds. You never talk, so eventually, you kind of forget who he is. Then I progressed to seventh grade where I became ‘above all that’. I’m telling you, I’ve been an old soul from the start. The summer going into 8th grade I had a crush, as we dated for a long week before I decided he was too short and clingy for me. I’m a harsh critic, Je regrette.

In high school, I went out with one of my best guy friends for about half a second before I realized it was weird and would never work. By ‘went out’ I mean we were in each other’s AIM profiles.

Then last summer I worked at a kids camp with this guy who lives in Maine for the summer, but lives in Florida. He was perfect, six feet, zac efron-ish, charming, polite, etc. Everything any normal girl would want. Knock-knock…Who’s there? Shea. Shea who? Shea the girl who decides that she likes being independent and it doesn’t matter if she has a guy who is totally interested in her and is the equivalent of a mouth-watering disney star. I ditched before I let him into my heart. I ditched before I would let him hold my hand. Me? Issues? Nawwww.

So, there you have it, the history of my heart. I can’t say I’m upset, actually it is a topic for great laughs. For a long while I ruled out dating, for it was ‘ poisenous to my academic career’. Then I moved on to, ‘I want to wait and travel and see the world before I let my heart out’. Now I’m at the point of ‘Dear lord, there is someone at my school who intrigues me like no other, and we glimpse at each other all the time… that’s it. No hello’s, no accidentally bumping into each other, just smiles and secrecy.’ I NEED to be more bold, but it’s easier said than done. There is something about him I can’t get over, it’s his essence, now I’ll end this, for it is sound far more creepier than I was hoping it would.

I’m ok being single. I mean, who ever decided it was a bad thing? I am a fully functioning single human being who finds happiness everyday, what more could I ask for? Well, except for maybe accidentally bumping into him…

Sincerely,
Shea

P.S. I AM SO DONE WOTH TRIGONOMETRY AND I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER. THE TEACHER? NO COMMENT. UFSDGFHGSDFHGSDLFJHGSDLJHFGSDJFHJSDHGFSJDHGFGF THAT’S HOW I FEEL ABOUT MATH!

Dear World,
As I sit here listening to said song, ‘She’s only happy in the sun’ by Ben Harper, I can’t help but yearn for some sun here, it is really when I am at my happiest too.

Don’t get me wrong, rainy days can be productive, ie; cleaning closets, desks and packing for certain trips coming up soon. Yet, I always feel trapped inside, just like in the winter, and I DETEST that!

Anyway, I’ve already been to a couple of grad parties, and this is feeling official. Most of my best friends are leaving me. I still have my very best friend, Sara, who is a grade lower, and my close friends in my grade, but I don’t want all my ‘big sisters’ to leave. I know this is all a part of growing up, but it is going to take some time to adjust. See, I will have no problem going off to college, meeting new people, etc., but I never like when other people leave, at all.

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
Some of my best friends graduated today… the same best friends I grew up with that were like my older sisters. Now I’m basically a senior, top of the food chain, but instead of excitement I feel nostalgic, and I want to have everything go back to the way it was in elementary school where graduation seems decades away instead of 364…

ACTs tomorrow, wish me luck!

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
Tomorrow, I will have seven days left. Seven days of school, stress and exams, and then I will happily leave all that behind for sand, sun and warm exotic waters. I think I can stick it out- let me rephrase that, I HAVE to stick it out. This is my junior exams, meaning I have to do great on them all. I’m only taking five (my AP exams and my current events exam are finished) and I need to focus on them.

I’ll have a whole week of a cruise and Bermuda to reward myself, but until then, I need to just stay focused and work hard.

I hope, when I am old and wealthy, I’ll look back at all of this ‘exam stuff’ and laugh as I lazily sip my wine looking out across my italian balcony. That’ll be very nice.

Sincerely,
Shea

In a boys dream

June 9, 2009

Dear World,
Do you know what I love? I love getting out of school at 10:45 because I have already taken the finals for my last two white day blocks. I also love getting home by 11:00 a.m. and eating a subway chicken bacon ranch (my usual). It just makes life, well, that much better!

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
I am sooooo ready for Bermuda, and I’ve got a closet full of new dresses to prove it. I’m trying not to over-excite myself, because the time will just go slower. Yet, I can’t help but fantasize about the warm, crystal water and the picture perfect beaches. It will be a nice change from the Northeast, that’s for sure!

❤ Eleven more days…

Sincerely,
Shea
