New Obsession: Skulls♥

I feel a little crazy saying I'm 'obsessed' with skulls when I only own one item with a skull on it, but whatever. I'm allowed to say I have an obsession with random crap, even if I don't, because this is my blog mwhahaha. Anywho, there are multiple genres of skulls. Some of my favorite groups include soft grunge/pastel skulls,  funky skulls, and artsy skulls. My personal favorite are the ones that fall under the soft grunge category. Let me show you what I mean...

 Soft Grunge:

If you think the one on the left looks familiar, that's because it's a print found on an oh so gorgeous shirt from Urban Outfitters. I am proud to say this shirt is what ignited my 'obsession'. The skull is made up of tiny lavender flowers with soft green leaves. The print on the left officially captured my heart when I found it about two seconds ago. It's perfection. You can also buy a phone case with this print on it as this website. I'm actually drooling over this case now. Holy crap, it's perfect. Can I just decorate my entire room with this picture? I think I will once I decide to stop being broke.

These are pretty much just Day of The Dead Skulls and any other tribal designs. That just reminded me how much I want to go draw Day of the Dead Skulls now. Oh my god, must. resist. urge. Anyways, just weird, crazy ass patterns plop into this category. You know, the oddballs, the leftovers, the outcasts. 

Artsy skulls are exactly what they would seem to be. Art. Any artwork that's extremely unique and out of this box lands into this genre. Bright watercolors, simple black and white patterns that are funky, but don't have the color to actually be funky. This also includes any magazine/newspaper prints or collages. 

So this is my new obsession. Now I'm gonna go and do something utterly pointless with my life, but while I do that, you should try and make up for my laziness. Go for a jog, find the cure for the common cold, study for the SATs, or you can be a low life loser and create a blog. Whatever you do, have a great day!

Pasta Parties and Future Car Washes Filled with Dread

So I just got home from a pasta party about an hour and a half ago. I just want to say, I hate extra curricular activity parties. This one was for my newly formed high school volleyball team and I just feel like they're so awkward. I hate how parents send us into the basement like we're still in preschool and we're all expected to become best friends by the time we resurface for dinner. Just so you know, that's not how friendships are formed. Luckily, two of my good friends are also on my team so we lonered it up in the back corner.

Another reason I can't stand potluck parties is because the food sucks. I've grown up in a family that always has a full on dinner every single night prepared by my very talented mother. She cooks the most amazing food I have ever eaten that wasn't prepared in a restaurant (most of the time it's even better than restaurant food). She makes us delicious Indian cuisine to yummy beef stew served with creamy, light, mashed potatoes; Nobody's cooking compares to her. So the whole point of that was, I have pretty high standards when it comes to foods, and tonight these standards were not met. The baked ziti was about as flavorful as dirt, but had the consistency of soggy bread. The dessert on the other hand was to die for. Well not that good, but it was like heaven when compared to the main courses. I had three gooey chocolate chip cookies and a fluffy vanilla cupcake smothered in chocolate icing. Before you go and think "Damn this chick is a fatass", I rarely eat junk food and I have difficult time consuming more than 1200 calories a day without feeling guilty, so today was my splurge.

Anyways, tomorrow is going to be yet another awkward volleyball meet up. I have to get up nice and early and head over to Sears in order to wash cars while it threatens to pour on us. Not my ideal Saturday. I also get to enjoy the comforts of car soap irritating my skin for three hours. Yay...

Maybe your Friday night was a little more pleasant and hopefully your Saturday mornings are as well.

So I'm not really sure what I'm going to post on this blog. I think it's going to have a lot of random posts about random subjects. The most popular subjects will probably be music, books, some of my own personal writing (maybe), updates about my boring life, vocabulary, and quotes. It'll be a fantastic mash up of every single thought that runs through my screwed up my mind.

Speaking of my mind, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Grace and I am going to be a freshman this fall. I currently live in the United States on the East Coast where life is pretty typical. I'm so excited to go off to college and do my own thing! I'm hoping to make it into UCLA or USC, just anywhere in California. My favorite subject is English and Art. I despise science and math with a burning passion. I don't have the patience to learn a new language, but I am taking French and am hoping to try Latin. I have an intense love for Eminem. I'm also surprisingly very religious (Presbyterian, if any of you were wondering). I've had to deal with a lot in life even though I'm very young, and I'm sure a lot more is coming my way. My life is wonderful though, and I am very blessed. I couldn't have asked for a better family (especially my parents) or better friends. My biggest goal is to live life to it's fullest and to always try new things.

So I hope you're just as confused about this blog as I am. Hope you all have a joyous day/night.

This is me if any of you were wondering...
