A Minor Bird

Today, I am sad. Sad, because I am sick. School is school, and school will always be there, for me to fall right back into its trap of work. Even right now I am working on my poetry assignment, for which I have to choose a poem that means something to me, and was written by a well known poet. I chose a poem by Robert Frost called A Minor Bird.

Here's his poem.

I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;

Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.

The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.

And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song. 
I think this poem is lovely, and it kind of describes my feelings sometimes (not the mood I'm in right now). I believe that it has a deeper meaning, of how when sometimes, when your sad, you have a deep jealously of happy things, and you don't want to be around them. But, in the end Mr. Frost has come to his senses, and realizes, life is too short to act that way. You should be happy about the little things, and forget the petty stuff. And that is why I chose his poem.

Good bye, for now.
(Ahhhhh Meadham Kirchhoff..)

lalalallallallla land

Dear my lovely readers,
I wish with all of my heart that I would be able to say right now that I have insider pics from fashion week. But sadly I don't. I wish I was there, amongst the other fashion dinosaurs, but no! So instead I'll just share some cool collections/pieces that I liked.

Anna Sui-

This Anna Sui collection is amazing! I love the punk rock feel, with some softness added to it.
With the colorful hair just to top it off!


Another amazing collection by the Rodarte sisters! This collection, in my opinion, has a punk rocky, vibe too. I've seen a lot of punk stuff this season. I adore all the colors and I think they way they put it together  was beautiful.

Meadham Kirchhoff-

I have to say, this Meadham Kirchhoff collection is not my favorite. Although, I love the colors and the idea of it, I will always think, their spring 2012 collection will be one of my favorites, and made a big impact in the blogerr-verse. 

Bye! Please comment!

The Blackberry Patch

Two blocks down, and around the corner, there is a wild black berry bush. And after school today my mom, took us to pick some on the way home. Although there weren't that many ripe ones. The ones that were, couldn't be reached, or had holes in them. The thorns on the bush snagged my new tights! I saw a HUGE grass hopper too! 

Then a few minutes later, a boy, about my age, or older, came up and said hi. I've never seen him in the neighbor hood before. I said hello back and asked him how he was doing. He was holding a guitar case and had a back pack on his back. He was talking to my mom about how it was funny to watch people's faces when they ate a sour berry. And my mom ate a berry and it was sour. He was autistic. When we got in the car, I saw him walking. He looked really lonely and at that moment I wanted to be his friend. I wanted to get out of the car and walk with him to where ever he was going, and be his friend. I'm sorry I didn't.

On my wrist is a bracelet for my friend who is running for school president, and I GOT MY YELLOW BELT!! (For math..)

I demand a rebellion against school

(Outfit post!)

(Whow there!)

I am officially organizing a rebellion against school! On Friday I took my Judo Math test (If you don't know what this is, you should read this post.) and I didn't pass so, I'm still a white belt! Yay! I know what your thinking right now, wow she must be really stupid if she's still on her white belt. Well, I can explain. When under stress, a.k.a a test, I don't do well. But on my practice sheets, I got almost everything right. WHATS GOING ON HERE!? WHY IS HUMANITY LIKE THIS!

For homework I have to do a math practice sheet and this art reference stuff and this art carving, I'M SICK OF IT!-

I officially am a thrifter! Yesturday I went to a thrift shop with one of my friends and got a bunch of cool stuff!

What I got-

Vintage beaded sweater/blouse thing, $10.

Tie die paisley shirt, $1.

 Jeans, $5.

Ralph Lauren shirt, $5.

Journey record, $1

Joan Jett record, $1.

Vintage leather bag. This piece is so incredibly beautiful. it opens up to be twice its size and has an egyptian print on it. The most beautiful thing about it is that it is so delicate and falling apart, and the bottom of it was broken so I had to fix it up. They gave it to me for free because it was broken.

Urban Outfitters stuff I got-

Purple jeans

Shoes, please ignore my face.

Dear Summer,
  I miss you dearly. I miss not having to wake up at 6:40 a.m., and I miss the fireworks every night at nine. I miss swimming until I looked like a prune, and not worrying of tomorrow will bring. I miss blogging every day, and going to the beach. I miss all of my cousins, and smortillas, and cookies and milk. 

Summer, where have you gone? 


Lately nothing biggg has been going on. Just the same old Gracie. Except for the fact of school. I deathly miss my seventh grade teachers, for they were my best friends! And now I have my new eighth grade teachers. I really like my math teacher! But, my humanities (history,english) teacher is, I don't know, she's just too traditional. I mean I like her and all, she just needs to explain things better. Right now I am supposed to be doing my judo math (a math program at school where we get a new color belt for each test we past), but I don't want too.

Enough of that boring stuff, I probably just made you fall asleep! 


(Cool pics from summer I never posted. All pics my own)

(Theses three pics are from HERE!)

I really want one of these Mark McNairy trench coats.

(AHHHHH I really want these shorts from opening ceremonies!)
