I am a girl lost at sea, and I never want to find the shore.

As long as my face isn’t being pelted by sideways rain, I’m fine with it.

I’m not entirely sure what you mean by this anon, can you please clarify? :)
On another note
My homework might not be done, but I am actually writing again?!
A Short Origin Story
The original name of my blog was nightskyrevelations, for two reasons. One, at the time, all of my blogs had astrological or celestial references (the other two still do), and I wanted a form of symmetry, so to speak, in their titles. This was further influence by the fact that my favorite song is called “Starlight” and is from the Muse album Black Holes and Revelations (hence the revelations). The second factor in my choice was the fact that I did literally have a night sky revelation; one night in the middle of tenth grade, I stayed in the car while my parents went to Costco, and while I was lying across the backseat, I suddenly realized how much I loved writing (probably catalyzed by Creger’s Creed Project), and how cool it would be to bring my love to American High School. By the end of the night, I had conceived the idea of a writing club, and a poetry slam as one of its events.
Whether it was a stroke of genius or a sleep deprived induce thought, now, I’m really glad that I didn’t go to Costco with my parents that night.

Thanks for making sure I stay healthy, anon :’) And no worries, right now I’m watching TV with my parents and pretty much chilling; I’m always sure to take ample breaks lol.
I really hate hot weather. Of course the heat of Concord was fully embraced after I had been dunked repeatedly at WaterWorld yesterday, but on a potentially relaxing afternoon after running a speed workout—not so much. My least favorite thing about hot weather is that it reminds me of the summer, of all of the ambitious activities and school preparations I planned, of all the books I meant to read, and how despite taking a class and conditioning regularly, I did so little of what I wanted to do. Rather than studying for the SAT or writing poetry, I spent my summer languidly sitting around, tumbling and relaxing, justifying my rest as a necessary recuperation from Junior year, but even now, three weeks into the school year, my mind is still on vacation.
I’ve begun to fill my September calendar with endless activities, and between piano, Cross-Country, studying, and Rush Week next week, I know I will grow tired of working and trying quickly. But the truth is, I have been idle for too long, and by packing my schedule with activities and my weekends with more things to do, I hope I can start actively pursuing my best year of high school yet.
In the meantime, I’d like for this oppressive heat to lift and bring in cool breezes and crunchy leaves, so I can (finally) run happily.
“Be with someone who you don’t have to hide from, in any way. Whether it’s your morning face before you’ve put your make up on, an embarrassing story to tell about something that happened on your way home, or an ambition you’ve had since you were six… make sure you end up with someone who knows all of it and still loves you. A person you can tell your whole life to is a person worth spending a life with.”
