I’ve actually been spending time with my family, yes, you heard right.  We’ve been getting along lately, I feel oddly weird of this fact. The weekend that just passed we went to the park, rode bikes, played some tennis (we all sucked at it by the way.) Swinged and all that good stuff. If it wasn’t for the wind that decided to start blowing in the middle of our day, it would have been perfect. We didn’t fight, we just talked and laughed. It felt really nice to finally be able to say that. It only toke me how long? Oh well, you gotta start somewhere.

I have spoken about music before, but right now, this is a special occasion. I was going to speak about this band when they won their first award, Brit award…for their first single…over Adele, Jessie J, The wanted and other talented artist’s. The band I’m going to speak about: One Direction. Now don’t let their title foul you, people underestimate Boyband’s. Their album is number one in many country’s, America included now that it has finally been released here. Oh did I mention that it made it to number one in less than ten minutes of it’s release? Yes, proud girl right here. I remember having to steam things at all hours of the night because nothing was available in America, I remember cursing sites for not having their merch available here, I remember getting mad at video’s because, of course it wasn’t available here. Oh those long all nighter’s that my friends and I would do in order to watch them somewhere or hear them on the radio. I remember only having the first five seconds of their first single to go off as after a long wait after the X factor. Forgive me, for I don’t make much sense, but that’s because I can’t control my emotions right now and I find it hard to even type properly. I am beyond proud of the boys, they have made their wildest dreams come true and have stayed humble. Because their amazing talent, personality, oh and their good looks is a plus, is what makes them so unique. The fact that they are so cheeky and can be themselves no matter what, that right there is what made me fall in love with them. To these five amazing boys, I salute you, Boybands are back.

I figure I must update on my “Lent challenge.” I have many progress mind you, still difficult to do so. It all started with a haircut, who knew it would come down to something so simple as a haircut. I had decided to get a haircut and had gone to work with my mom, the hair salon was across the street so it only made sense. Once there I decided to get a big change, that and my long hair was very hard to tame at that point, so I got my hair cut really short. You can tell the difference in the picture. When I got home, aside from everyone freaking out we all sat down and had dinner together and spoke about my haircut then spoke about other things. The next few days we have talked more, my brother is currently in my room playing on his DS as I finish this post so we can decide which movie to watch.

I know I’m young and everyone will say, “You have your whole life ahead of you.” But that’s exactly the issue, I HAVE MY WHOLE LIFE AHEAD OF ME AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH IT, I felt I had to put that whole statement in caps to prove point. Anyway, every time I sit down and start thinking about life, I’m doing many different things. I want to be involved in the fashion industry, designing, marketing or something in that field. I would love to direct and produce the idea’s I have in my head. Writing a book is high in my list, maybe a couple. Becoming a journalist or editor for a magazine or website that I love and have high respect for. Blogging, yes blogging, even though I fail at keeping this updated. I want to be able to wake up in the morning and actually want to go to work, come home late maybe but still happy, loving what I do. And you know, being able to travel the world is a big thing, so if I could do that with my job, that would be awesome. I have no idea where to begin or if I can combine things or anything like that. Ugh, I’m just lost. The only thing I do know for sure, is that I’m not made for a normal job. My personality just isn’t for it, I need adventure, creativity and most of all I need passion.

I’ve been one week in and failing miserably,  I’ve been trying and have only been able to watch a movie or two with my brother and sister. Oh and playing a few video games with my brother, but baby steps, baby steps. I have no idea why this is so hard for me, guess im more disconnected with my family than I thought I was. And I haven’t even been able to spend time with my parents because they fight with me every day. Gonna have to try more
