Halloween 2014 Mini Episode (By Semma)


, , , , , , ,

Candy’s ringtone woke her up with a jolt. The clock glowing a steady blue told her that she still had 7 more minutes until she had to get up. Who would be texting her this early?

Sighing, she contemplated ignoring it, but curiosity got the best of her.


She rolled her eyes at Castiel’s arrogance and replied quickly.


Almost instantly, his reply shot back.


Candy tried not to smile. He was such an ass sometimes.

“Are my eggs that delicious? You’ve been smirking at them for ages!” Auntie exaggerated.

“Yeah, they’re especially great today…hey, I think I’m going to make plans this afternoon.” Candy said between bites.

“Okie dokie! Just remember to call me and let me know where you’ll be! Don’t want any ghosts to snatch you up!” Auntie scolded in a sing-song voice.

Candy shook her head. Ghosts? Why did Auntie always talk to her like she was a child? “Of course, I’ll call you when I know what I’m doing.”

Candy headed to school a bit earlier than usual. Ten minutes made a lot more difference than she realized. The streets were nearly empty as she walked along, and it was a bit colder than usual. She had thrown on a long faded t-shirt with just shorts and a vest. At least she had worn boots today.

By the time she got to school, she realized she was one of the only kids there. A few kids from younger grades were sitting on the stairs playing some form of jacks, but it was incredibly quiet.

The time on her phone said 7:20. Classes would be starting soon. She sat down on a ledge near the door and zoned out.

“Hey! Uh, where’s your costume?” A perky voice assaulted her with a hug from behind.

“Alexy! You scared me…oh my gosh it’s Halloween?!” Candy had completely forgotten! She looked up and realized that most of the kids wandering around were dressed up in various costumes. Alexy currently looked like a parade exploded.

“Ohhhh don’t worry I can fix it!” He grabbed her hand and dragged her to the girls restroom. “I brought all of my makeup! How about ‘dia de los muertos?’” He made spooky hand gestures and didn’t wait for an answer.

“Uhm, you know class starts like, now?” Candy second-guessed.

“Girl, don’t worry, I’ve got this!” He started applying makeup so quickly, Candy didn’t have to keep her eyes closed for long. He was amazing with a makeup brush. She stared at her reflection in the mirror and was impressed.

“Wow, thanks a lot! You saved me.”

“C’mon, we’ve got to get to Algebra!” He grabbed her hand and dragged again.

“It’s too early for math…” Candy whined.

School was over too quickly. This had been the funnest day so far. Surprisingly, most of Sweet Amoris had gotten into the spirit of Halloween – save for a few teachers – and Candy suddenly realized that she hadn’t seen Castiel all day.

She stopped by the restroom on her way to the courtyard to try and wash the face paint off. It had started to crack and peel off as the day wore on. It was silly, but she didn’t want Castiel to see her so enthusiastic about Halloween. He would probably think it was silly.

Waiting at the bus stop, she wondered if he had forgotten until she heard a nickname that could only ever be applied to her.

“Hey, Runway! You made it. Sweet, let’s go we don’t have much time.” Castiel’s dumb nickname irked her, but now that she had a new bustier, she knew he was only kidding.

“Castiel, can you explain to me why you sent me a text ten minutes before my alarm went off?” She huffed as she followed his brisk pace. He looked so excited for whatever it was he was planning.

“What? How am I supposed to know when you wake up. Don’t waddle, we have things to do!” She wouldn’t call it skipping, but his behavior was adorable. She had never seen him act this way.

“Will you at least tell me where we’re going?” Candy grabbed his hand to slow him down a bit, but she was caught off guard when he didn’t shake her off.

“We’re going to a Halloween party and I need a partner for my costume!” He explained almost angrily, as if he expected her to read his mind.

“Oh. Why didn’t you say so?” They continued walking towards the market district where most of the shops would be. “So are we going to buy them or make them?”

“We just need to cover you in seran wrap and we’ll be set!” Candy almost screamed. Getting answers out of him was like pulling teeth! What the heck was he talking about?

They reached a grocery store, and Candy was even more confused.

“Hey what color is your bra?” He asked so casually, he could have been asking her for the time.

“W-what?! Castiel!” She didn’t know whether to slap him or just turn around and leave.

“God – look, it’s for the costume. If your underwear are bright colors it might show through. So?” He gestured a bit awkwardly at her body and waited for an answer.

“Uhm, o-orange…” Candy almost mumbled. She could feel her cheeks burning.

“Sweet this will work. Come on.” She followed him as he grabbed two boxes of seran wrap, corn starch, food coloring, and a toy knife.

“Uhh…Castiel…I dont’ think I like where this is going…” Candy said nervously as they left the store.

“Chill out, we’re going to Lysander’s house first. Rose will help you get dressed. Ah man, we’re going to win for sure!” His childish fist pump made her snicker.

“Okay, so there’s a Halloween costume contest, and you want us to win?” She waited for him to nod before continuing. “What’s the prize?” She asked, now intrigued.

“It’s a $50 gift certificate to Allsmart. It’ll be just enough to get that new amp I wanted!”

“Wait, you’re not going to split it with me?” Candy asked, irritated. They were just walking up to Lysander’s house. She’d never been there. It was huge. “Wow.”

“Yeah, they’re rich or something.”

“No, I mean ‘wow, you’re such a jerk, why don’t I get a prize if we win?’” Candy clarified.

“Oh. My company isn’t enough?” He winked and didn’t bother knocking as he opened the door.

“Candy! Come on, we have to hurry!” Rosalya nearly tackled her as they barged into Lysander’s house.

Rose snatched the grocery bag from Castiel and pulled Candy into the nearest room and shut the door.

“Okay, take off all your clothes! We don’t have a lot of time…” Rosalya was already dressed in an extremely elaborate version of a Disney princess.

Candy looked at the seran wrap skeptically. “So what exactly am I dressing as…?”

“A dead girl! Have you ever seen Dexter?” Rose asked as she began twisting the seran wrap around Candy. “How short do you want this to be…” Rosalya didn’t wait for an answer and started uncomfortably high.

“You mean the show that was cancelled like a year ago?”

“Yeah! It was Castiel’s favorite show-”

“-Of course it was-”

“-And he was so excited when he came to me that I promised to help! Just a few more pieces and you should be done!”

Candy came out of the room and felt a thousand eyes looking her up and down.

"Behold my photoshop glory"

“Behold my photoshop glory”

“Eh, you’ll do. Come on! I have a prize to win.” Castiel grabbed her arm as they all left the house.

“So…how much does this new amp cost exactly?” Candy questioned.

“About $45, why?” He answered.

“Well, what are you going to do with the left over $5?” She hinted.

“Pay myself back for the costume I bought you?” He countered, smirking.

“Coffee.” Candy stated and stopped walking, getting his attention.

“What?” He puzzled, trying to make her walk but failing.

“You owe me coffee, and you can buy it with those $5. Not water, like last time.”

“Uhm, y-yeah…sure.” He blushed.

“It’s a date then.” Candy said off-handedly before she realized she’d used the word “date.”

The walk was uncomfortably silent for a while.

“So, in the show we’re dressed up as, Dexter was…still in love with Deborah.” Candy bit her lip, hoping he wouldn’t be offended, but she had to know if Castiel was still holding on to a memory.

“Nah, remember, she went nuts and left. Dexter fell in love with one of his victims.” He recovered quickly.

“Well…” Candy somehow found the nerve to continue. “I seem to be one of his victims,” she said as she gestured to the blood on her outfit.

“You’re a dead victim, though. Dexter didn’t let her die, in the end.” He side-stepped her question.

“Castiel, I’m still breathing.” She said, narrowing her eyes at him.

“Yeah, yeah, come on Runway, we’re gonna be late for my prize.” His words were casual, but Candy didn’t miss the smile he couldn’t hide fast enough.

être Excité! Halloween 2014 Boutique! HAPPY DAAY!!

Amour Sucre released their shop! My Sucrette is so happy right now :3

"ARRR give mee yer booty!"

“ARRR give mee yer booty!”

For this pirate option, there IS an option to buy the shirt and jacket combined for $25 cheaper, BUT you won’t be able to wear the shirt or jacket ALONE in any other outfits. Decisions, decisions…


"...this is my favorite."

“…this is my favorite.”





"Miao! :3"

“Miao! :3″

#EDIT!! AS pointed out by the lovely Dawn, they have updated the clothes shop with different colors of the episode clothing!!


Also, the Halloween “Photo” Contest is lame, the prizes for winning are lame, and so far no one has submitted anything. I think it would be hilarious (and sad a little bit) if everyone just ignored it as a “stop ignoring the US we deserve just as much attention as AS. Give us a real event.” Also, again, I tried to ask about the writer on AS who randomly disappeared because obviously if you write “she’s disappeared and no one has been able to contact her,” IS SHE IN THE HOSPITAL?! Is she okay!? Like, is she dead?? And I got shushed by a mod (who totally shut down the entire conversation with her snappy attitude) and the thread died instantly. I really hope that chick is not in a ditch somewhere.

We are finally able to choose the layer of our clothing!

If you have been following me since the beginning, you know that my #1 GRIPE about this game is the fact they I could not wear boots OVER my pants. And the mods/admin responses were “just wear leggings instead the programmers don’t have time for that.”

WELL HALLELUJAH it looks like they found time.

Go read the main post on Daily Candy but OMG this is so exciting.


The system feels a bit glitchy to me still (and as usual, the mobile app does not have it), but it is a HUGE step in the right direction :)

Problems still need fixing:

LEFT AND RIGHT HANDS should be separated. I want the glove on the right to be over the clothing (duh) and the glove on the left to be behind the clothing…since her hand is behind…the…clothing….

In no lifetime can I see myself wanting to put her underwear over her clothing. Maybe I will do that to make a statement. How hilarious would that be. I think everyone should make their outfits, and then wear their underwear right on top. Maybe they would fix it faster.

So far that’s all I see.


I enjoy all the things.

I enjoy all the things.


I enjoy all the perfect things.

I enjoy all the perfect things.

So there is also a watchable/playable manga type storyline, which I am SUPER STOKED about! But. They are taking years to activate my account. Mew.

In case you haven’t heard of this yet, CHECK IT OUT! Super cute, the creator of this site is a very cool 24 year old woman (read: I am also 24…5…omg I’m going to be 26 in a few months ._____. wwaaaaaat….what am I doing with my life…) and I read her blogs aaand I think we would be bffs forever but that’s just my fangirl side.

So, I checked out this site after a recommendation and WOW is it well-made! The color scheme, the layout, perfect. It’s my new favorite thing.

She has also put up some “manga creators.” SO FUN! Guess what I did.


"Did you catch last night's episode of the Walking Dead? ...BECAUSE YOU LOOK LIKE A WALKER HAHAHA runway."

“Did you catch last night’s episode of the Walking Dead? …BECAUSE YOU LOOK LIKE A WALKER HAHAHA runway.”

Geez, Castiel, we know she’s a flatty.

"OH NO a wild Lysander appears...in time to be sad and angsty. How tragic."

“OH NO a wild Lysander appears…in time to be sad and angsty. How tragic.”

I wonder what they were talking about…

"Roof concert! Looks like the star performers are...so thug."

“Roof concert! Looks like the star performers are…so thug.”

"It's 2AM and this is hilarious."

“It’s 2AM and this is hilarious.”

Aaaand the obligatory me and hubbs. Because I can.

"If I never go to a market again in my entire life, it will be too soon..."

“If I never go to a market again in my entire life, it will be too soon…”

EDIT: Aaaand more because I can’t help myself…

"Into the vast catacombs...of MARRIAGE!! ...it's late man I dunno...want to just stay in and marathon the next season of House? I bet it's Lupus."

“Into the vast catacombs…of MARRIAGE!! …it’s late man I dunno…want to just stay in and marathon the next season of House? I bet it’s Lupus.”

"YOU KNOW I HATE NATURE! But I'd follow that accent anywhere..."

“YOU KNOW I HATE NATURE! But I’d follow that accent anywhere…”


MCL Halloween 2014!


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s that time again!

Have you been saving your AP and $? Because you should be.


If you haven’t, STOP PLAYING THE EPISODES! Every year, MCL hosts a holiday event, usually only for Halloween and Christmas. Sometimes they require AP, sometimes they require $! After recent complaining about events using up AP, the past few have required $, so I’m not sure what to expect. Just SAVE! The episodes will still be here after the holidays :) (Remember that they usually also do a Valentine’s event – remember how sad we were when we didn’t have enough to buy the cute dresses? And how much more sad when we couldn’t buy them for the Summer event? Yes. We’s remember.)

So I’m dressed up for Halloween! Are you?!






















Bleaching Your Hair: Do’s and Don’ts and Meh’s


, , ,

It’s a trendy trend that’s trending to bleach sections or all of your hair. Sweet. I do not have $150+ to spend on that, so I went out to do it myself.

I used these following products (all purchased at Sally’s), and have pretty good results! I am currently unable to upload the pictures of my endeavors, but I have some reference photos and descriptions. Meh.

L’Oreal Quick Blue Powder Lightener – http://www.sallybeauty.com/powder-lightener/LOREAL12,default,pd.html#prefn1=brand&prefv1=CLAIRL%7CLOREAL&start=4

I chose this because I have DARK, thick hair and it has been dyed black in the past few months. Definitely talk to a Sally’s Associate. They will help you choose the best bleaching options :)

Salon Care 30 Volume Creme Developer – http://www.sallybeauty.com/creme-developer/SLNCAR62,default,pd.html#start=9

I chose this because I have DARK hair. If you have blonde/light brown hair, choose a 10 or a 20. NEVER use a 40 – that is for professionals, and you may end up with your newly bleached hair breaking off into sad chunks of your self esteem.

(What is a developer? You mix it with the powdered bleach and it makes magical things happen.)

Ion Effective Care Treatment – http://www.sallybeauty.com/hair-repair-therapy/ION22,default,pd.html#sz=48&viewAllProducts=true&start=14

A cheap, deep conditioner that will help with the “straw-like” effects of bleaching. I usually just buy the $1.50 packet and use only half at a time. :)

Shimmer Lights Conditioning Shampoo – http://www.sallybeauty.com/blonde-shampoo/CLAIRL3,default,pd.html#q=shimmer+lights&start=1

I started using this after the bleaching. The lightest color on my head was YELLOW. I mean like, the sun came down from the sky, ate a ton of lemons, and squeeeezed itself all over the side of my head.
The darkest color was ORANGE. As if the sahara desert had – well you get it.
This product took away the brassiness in about a week of daily use. Highly recommend!

I have not bought the dye yet. This entire process was WAY more detailed than I thought it would be. I will end up dyeing it soon, but for now, I am half-blonde half-black and I actually kind of love it.


Since I am not a licensed beautician, my adventure in hair bleaching is not professional, and definitely not the bible of hair bleach. I talked to the woman at Sally’s for a solid 15 minutes before I went home and did this. ‘Aight? ‘Aight.

First: I did not wash my hair for four days.

Whaaat?! EEWW!! I know, super gnarly. I hated it so much. BUT the natural oils in your hair will cover your scalp, making the bleach less likely to chemically burn your skin. If you are only dyeing the ends, then don’t worry too much about this part, but don’t put any product in and bleach it on second or third day hair.

Second: Get ready. I grabbed my plastic bowl, put a towel around my neck/shoulders and got into my oldest cleaning clothes.

Bleach WILL get everywhere. It will splash onto the counter. It will splash on to any hand towels lying around your bathroom. It will splotch up your clothing. So be prepared.

Third: Brush yo hurr and decide where you want the color to be.

I sectioned off the parts that I wanted to lighten, and wrapped a junk towel around the hair that I did not want dyed at all. (The top-right half of my hair.)

I decided that I want an ombre-style fade, so I applied bleach to the very tips of my hair, section by section until it started to lighten about three shades lighter than my haircolor (about ten minutes). I took a picture, but my phone is acting up and I can’t get it to upload…sooooo here:

Her guide is way more detailed than mine, and has many pictures. A good read. (TBH I read the entire first page of Google when I decided I wanted to do this. READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!) http://abeautifulmess.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Bleach-Dark-Hair

Here’s another good one: http://www.thegloss.com/2011/12/22/beauty/diy-ombre-hair-tutorial-381/

And another decent one: http://www.wikihow.com/Do-Ombre-(Dip-Dye)-Hair-at-Home

After the tips were lightening, I went through and put bleach about three inches higher than my tips. I let that sit for another ten minutes (20 minutes elapsed).

Once those were lightened, I brought the color all the way to my roots. My hair is shoulder length, so this was it for me. When I ombre’d my LONG hair, it was MUCH easier because I had more control over how far up the fade could go. On long hair, I bleached in four stages, each was about 3 inches higher than the last. I ended up with 12 inches of bleached hair from SUPER ORANGE to dark orange. I didn’t know about the Shimmer Lights back then. Sigh.

Fourth: Wash your hair with color-protecting shampoo. Or normal shampoo. That’s what I did because I didn’t have money for more shampoo. My hair didn’t fall out so that’s nice.

Fifth: Evaluate. Is it what you wanted? Did you miss a section? Do you want a lighter shade? Wait a week before you do any more bleaching to let your hair rest. You CAN immediately bleach it again, but I would not recommend it for reasons.

At the end, I was not satisfied with my results due to the fact that in January, I had dyed my hair black (so the sections that had grown since then were YELLOW and the used-to-be-black sections were orangey. So I waited a week (to let my hair “heal”) and dyed it all again. Since I had already gotten a nice ombre, I just piled on the bleach and let it sit for 30 minutes. It came out a nice NEON YELLOW. ACK! So I stuck with my Shimmer Lights, and it’s calmed down to a more manageable light orange. Sweet.

I’m still deciding on which color dye I want to try, but my hair needs to have a break before I do that.

All in all, it was a long, messy process but it was SO FUN. I had complete control, and it came out exactly how I wanted.

It’s up to you if you would like to DIY, but for me, it was worth it.



-Bleach in an area that has airflow. DO NOT close yourself into the bathroom. You will suffocate.

-If your towel keeps falling from your neck, use clips or hairties to keep it snug.

-Bleach BURNS if it gets on your skin so wear gloves and try to wipe it off if it gets on your ears/face.

-Use bobby pins to keep your bangs away from your eyes, especially if they are COVERED IN LAVA BLEACH.

-DO NOT be scared. Okay be a little scared. But just know that if you mess up and your hair looks so bad, DO NOT just put more dye into it. Go to a salon (with optional tail between your legs) and have them fix it. You were going to spend the money anyway.

-BE EXCITED! It’s a fun feeling when your hair dries and you can see the awesome permanent thing you did to yourself.

Poll time! Help me make the BIGGEST CHOICE OF MY LIFE!


, , , , , , , , , ,

Since I am a housewife with no professional responsibilities, I have decided to do something crazy. I’m going to dye my hair! Well, the ends at least. How cool would it be if I could look like those crazy Candy girls, right?!


All answers from MCL and the poll have been counted, and I’m so excited. I’m sick with “la gripa,” but really it’s just a head cold from the weather changing from boiling to rainstorm to freezing to boiling. If you sneeze, someone says gripa. No. Gripa is FLU and you might die from it. Sneezing and blowing my nose is the weather and I will not die, just be very uncomfortable when I’m trying to sleep. Sheesh.

So I will work the magic, make a how-to post, and pictures will be up shortlyyyyy! :D

I am bleaching it RIGHT NOW, but I haven’t bought the dye yet! That’s where YOU come in! Vote today and tomorrow, and on Monday you will get a picture of my new hair :3

Choose well, my pretties! The fate of my radical new hair depends on YOU!

Back To School: Middle School, High School, College! (Baby names…?)

It’s that time again! Most of you are starting mandatory prison school this week (yay free education!) and I wanted to spread my words of sarcasm wisdom over your little minds like a piece of toast.

Middle Schoolers: Grades 6-8. Ages: …uhhhmmm…*thinks back a million years* 11-…14? I think. Yes. All you little flowers just ready to blossom into BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLIES! Butterflies below, in case you didn’t know. Majestic Psychedelic Wind Fairies.


"Lisa Frank is my hero."

“Lisa Frank is my hero.”

1.) You are an individual. Just like everybody else. (I remember having a black shirt from HotTopic that said that. 7th grade represent! My favorite year.) Do whatever you want. True friends will recognize you for your awesomeness, and to be 100% honest, I have only kept in touch with 2 people from middle school. Friends come and go, so enjoy their company while you have things in common, and learn to bow out gracefully when your paths take different directions. :)

2.) No boy that you date is going to be your husband. I’m sorry, but that’s true. So go on dates, have lunch together, cuddle in the hallways before classes, but don’t profess your undying love. It will die or date all of your friends except for you and then try to get with you 7 years later even though his side girl is preggo and he is balding and fat and smells REALLY weird now for some reason. Don’t worry. Just enjoy your movie dates and sweaty hand-holding.

3.) You probably still have a uniform, I’m guessing. Most middle schools do. Don’t worry! You can still be super stylish by accessorizing! Headbands, bracelets, necklaces, watches, rings (at one point I wore a ring on each finger. I was so thug ya’ll. JK PLEASE don’t wear a ring on each finger. I can’t believe my mother let me do such embarrassing things.) and even earrings! Claire’s is your best friend. If I could do it again, I’d be all up in XXI. *sigh*

4.) Friends can be so much drama sometimes. And you know what? That’s okay because I bet you have been dramatic before, too. Don’t lie. I was the queen of all the drama llamas. This time is all about doing what you want to do. Do you like singing? Join the choir. Do you like dancing? Join a dance team. Are you REALLY bad at dancing but still want to dance anyway? Join a dance club!! An after school club or team is a GREAT way to make friends! They have to like you, and when you get to high school, you’ll already have people to sit with at lunch! Sweet.

5.) SKINCARE! You may not be allowed to wear make up yet, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your face! Start early! Get a nice, gentle face wash and moisturize before bed! (Don’t get anything for acne if you don’t have it yet!) Then in the morning, just splash your face with water and you’re good to go!

Which leads to…

6.) MAKE UP! If you are allowed to wear make up, please remember that you are 12. You have been blessed with the natural beauty of youth. USE IT! There will be plenty of time to use heavy foundation to cover wrinkles and acne when you’re older – but now is not the time to look like toddlers in tiaras! That show gave me nightmares. A bit of mascara and lip gloss is perfect! You’ll look sophisticated and fresh. *If you do have acne and try to cover it up with make up, be careful not to use too much. (This BB cream by L’Oreal is really good for covering up redness while not technically being a foundation. http://www.lorealparisusa.com/en/products/makeup/face/bb-cream/magic-skin-beautifier-bb-cream.aspx ) You don’t want to look “cake-y.” In fact, here is a hilarious youtube video about the OHGODWHY’s of make up.

7.) Be glad of your time. I know you just want to be older and have a car and a phone and your own life, but do you know what comes with those things? Bills. So many frakking bills. OH MY GOD. The bills. Want a car? Car: car payment, insurance payment, gas for car (which is like $3/gallon right now OMG that’s like $30 for three days in my car), maintenance payment, registration payment, payment to switch title, and inspection payment. Do you know how much money that is? When you mom is like hey I’ll drive you, be like YES THANK YOU! Because you just saved like $11,100. Yeah. Awesome.

8.) TELL ME! What are you scared of? Any questions? Since I am the magical fairy of knowledge, I know so many things and am always right am living vicariously care about ya’ll. Comment below!


1.) JOIN. ALL. OF. THE. CLUBS. You will make so many friends and it will be great. Have a huge test to study for? Nab a friend and sprawl out on the floor munching on snacks until curfew. Hang out with people as much as possible. Once you graduate and start real life, you will miss the OBNOXIOUS AMOUNT OF FREE TIME. Seriously. All the things I could have done, but didn’t do because “I’m tired.” No. You don’t know tired. Tired is 8 hours of working a minimum wage job, and then rushing to college campus for a 3 hour night course, and then 2 hours of studying/writing papers, and then 5 hours of sleep.

2.) Don’t be a ho. And if you’re going to insist on being a ho, be a smart ho and use protection. Ten years ago, the schools weren’t big on safe sex education, and LET ME TELL YOU I can’t even remember how many of my friends disappeared or came to school super pregnant. Mostly because they were being hos, but also because they didn’t know any better and didn’t know how to be safe :(


3.) Keep your friends close, and ignore the people who are bullies/mean. You know what is a nice feeling? This girl used to pick on me because I wasn’t a party girl and didn’t have a boyfriend (or a first kiss until I was 17…). You know where she is now? Living in a really nice house with a loving husband and three beautiful children, and is a model for race car ads. And she’s super nice now. If I had given in to her bullying and been mean back, we wouldn’t be friends. That story didn’t make any sense.

4.)  Stick up for yourself. There is a difference between “omg you’re so ugly, why did you wear that skirt? I’ll help you by going shopping with you!” and “hey, stop picking on that autistic student, you twat.” One is being a snotty teenager, and one is acting like an adult and sticking up for what you believe in. I’m not good at advice.

5.) Eat so much. Your metabolism is probably in it’s prime right now. Take advantage. .___. eat all the horses. Or whatever.


1.) You do not need to raise your hand to leave the class. You’re an adult, and you’ve paid for the classes. If you need to leave early for a doctor’s appointment, don’t make a big scene in the middle of class – email your professor that you will be leaving a bit early, and sit by the door to make a quiet exit when you need to.

*IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING THAT THE PROFESSOR JUST SAID, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RAISE YOUR HAND AND ASK THEM TO REPEAT IT/EXPLAIN. You paid actual money to take this class, and you have every right to learn. Some other kids might moan and make sarcastic comments: FUDGE THEM. Not everyone’s brain can be SPONTANEOUS WIKIPEDIA ARTICLES.*

2.) Don’t be the kid that constantly challenges the professor or other students when your opinion is different. Especially if you’re only taking your core basics. Yes, you are allowed to think and have your own mind, but 98% of the other students in that room just want to memorize what they need for the exams and be on their way. (Unless you’re working towards your Bachelor’s/Masters.) No one wants to listen to you interrupt in ever. single. class. NOBODY.

3.) DO YOUR HOMEWORK. You may have a class that doesn’t require homework, but has optional exercises. Do them. When your only grades for a course are 4 exams at 25% each, you cannot afford to fail one. Trust me. 9/10 times, the professor will use questions that you saw in the optional homework. Ballin.

4.) Be yourself. Maybe you’re still finding yourself. Maybe your roommate is a giant asshole. Focus on YOU. My college experience was a disaster because I kept trying to be friends with everybody. That is not possible. I still get sad when I think about how much I WASN’T ME.

5.) GET AN INTERNSHIP. When you graduate, you need experience to land a job, not just a degree. If you don’t have time for a job during college, an internship and even volunteering will count as those pesky “3-5 years of experience required”s. The last thing you want is to work at Bath & Body Works at minimum wage with shizzy hours because your resume only has high school related accomplishments. :( *my life.*

I think I just felt like typing a bunch of random words.

Is this offensive? Meh. I’m going through emotional crazy times. I can’t see past dinner.


(Also, I had a pregnancy scare recently and need to research baby names that can be both Mexican/White girl. I don’t want to accidentally name my baby girl Mallory, and then she be super dark skinned with Aztec features. Similarly, I don’t want to name her Consuelo and then she end up having super see-through-vampire-pale skin with my family’s blonde hair and chubby cheeks. How much would kids make fun of her in school. HELP!! This whole mixed race marriage thing is hard. I can’t count how much we get stared at when we go out in public. People have gone out of their way to call me a racist bitch when I ask questions like this, but honestly, I just need your help picking non-racial-specific baby names.)

Also, I’m having a very hard time right now. Your encouraging words and messages get me through every single day. I made spaghetti last night and the sauce got all over my stove.


SO a question was answered in the comments, and I thought I’d tack it on here since it is relevant!

Alex asked: “Im starting high school later this month and I’ve never had any friends in middle school because I was the shy loner in the back that got bullied by everyone, so I have no idea on how to go about making friends. I’m moving so practically no one from my old school is gonna be at my high school which means I can start afresh but I don’t even know how to start a conversation…there aren’t any clubs for school so that’s out of question. Do you have any tips on making friends or such? To be more social?”

WHY YES, I am full of the most fabulous advice ever. LET’S ANSWER YOUR QUESTION!

My go-to life tips on making friends:

1.) Save ALL of your clever, witty sarcasm for AFTER you have made a few friendships. Sarcasm will come across as arrogant, rude, and downright mean if the people don’t know you. It can be SUPER awkward if EVEN WORSE, they don’t even UNDERSTAND the “joke” you just made. Imagine that silence. Ugh. *shudders*

2.) Stay POLITE and POSITIVE! The best advice I ever got was from a guy who told me, “you know, you’re really pretty and all, but the only things I ever hear you talk about is how sad your life is.” And it’s true. People generally like to spend time with people who make them feel good. So listening to a girl cry about how poor she is does not sound like fun to most people. Keep your conversation topics on the happier side in the beginning.

3.) If the people you’re chatting with start throwing shade at other students like “ugh can you believe she wore that” and “has she ever heard of deodorant,” Fucking RUN. Those are the worst kind of people because as soon as you turn your back, they will say the same things about you. Say no to poison.

4.) The best time to meet people is during lunch. Like, just gather your man balls and sit down with some kids who look nice and say, “hi! My name is ____! I’ve just moved here and was wondering if I could eat with you.” 9/10 times they will say yes and be extra nice since you’re new. If you happen to choose the 1/10 who are bitches and say no, frakkthem, you don’t want to be friends with snobby hos anyway.

5.) ADVICE FROM ANONYMOUS: “Never let a guy’s presence in your life stop you from doing something you want to do. Even though I had a steady boyfriend through most of college, if I wanted to participate in something, I did it, even if he didn’t want to. I had so many experiences that otherwise, I would have missed out on.”

I know it is SO SCARY to put yourself out there, but the quickest way to get your “feelers” out is to just be friendly and outgoing.

Then, once you’ve talked to a few people during classes or breaks, they will introduce you to their friends, and BAM instant friendships.

Safe new-friends topics:

  • TV shows – “My FAVORITE TV show ever is Firefly, but right now I’m binge watching GOT and Last Ship. Did you catch America’s Got Talent last night?” (Feel free to list one dorky/nerdy show just in case they are cool people and catch the reference, but list one current popular show so that you have common ground to talk about. Your favorite show becomes immensely less cool the more you have to explain why The Alliance is trying to kill the Brown Coats but the main cast includes a prostitute and a psychopath science experiment…trusts me…)
  • BRIEFLY your old school – “I went to SNARKDOG HIGH, but we moved because my dad got a new job. I really liked it there because they had a huge campus, but I your school if great because of all of the after school activities.” (DO NOT try to tell them all about your BFF that you left behind, or the kids you hated, or the ex boyfriends that you left. Those are topics for later conversations IF they ask. You don’t want to scare them off too quickly.)
  • Teachers – “I’m looking at my schedule, and it says I have a teacher named LOCKTOPUS? Am I saying that right?” They will most likely correct your pronunciation and talk about other teachers and how good/bad they are. It’s a bonding thing, I don’t know.
  • Clubs – “I used to take dance lessons before I moved here…are there any clubs here that are similar?” BAM. Conversation. You’re welcome.
  • Malls/Movie Theaters – “I’m not too familiar with the area…where is the closest mall/movie theater? I’ve been meaning to buy a new dress/see TMNT.” It’ll be a brief conversation, but it’s safe.

GOOD LUCK, MY PRETTIES!! If you have additional advice, leave it in the comments :)
