Snow Days and Birthday Cakes

Hello, hope you've all been well!

This past week was snowed last friday and we missed school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I do Love the snow, and it's so magical as it falls....but I am not the type to stay in the house for five days...I can't stay in one place too long.

But when walking through the forest by my house while it's covered in a blanket of white... it felt like being in Narnia.

And it was beautiful.

My birthday's coming up soon.....this Monday I'll be 14. It feels strange....we're doing 'The Outsiders' for our play in advanced Drama. I don't know if you're familiar with the story, but it's mainly about two gangs, the Greasers and The Socs. And they fight over territory. The main character Ponyboy gets wrapped up in alotta trouble

Ponyboy's 14. And it makes me think about how he's the same age as me and he's getting wrapped up in murder, gang fights, and he has to run away from home too.

It's like when you watch movies, and you feel the main character is sooo much older than you and ony when you get to that age can things like that really happen to you. It's weird when you get to that age and everything is almost the same. It's even worse when you become older than the main character.

I dunno, maybe I'm the only person who thinks like this. Do any of you think like this too?

Well anyway, I've decided to focus on the birthday cake, chick flicks, and makeovers tonight. Fun!!

And as for music, I've fallen into an obsession with Laura Marling all over again

Something about her lyrics.....even when I don't quite understand them, I can somehow feel them.

"If you're born with a love for the wrote and the writ
People of letters your warning stands clear
Pay heed to your heart and not to your wit
Don't say in a letter what you can't in my ear "
