Thanks for your visit! Hi, I’m Emily, a  red- and curly-haired metalhead lady with odd fashion sense. I live in a state shaped like a mitten in the USA. I started this blog because while I love watching all the uniquely styled and many budget-unlimited fashion blogs out there, I have yet to find one for “normal” humans (yes, I’ve got a strange style, but I’m a normal-sized human with a tiny budget).

A bit about my style and what this will beCollapse )

I’m a simple punk. Frankly, I’m cheap. I’m me. One outfit below from a modelling shoot to get us started. Thanks for reading!

I am now the proud owner of a marvelous new Dell laptop. It is SHIIIIINNYYYY. :D It's really nice, and I get to order an awesome skin for it soon. I'm in the middle of transferring all three gazillion gigabytes of data onto this computer, which is gonna take a while, and then I have to wipe my old one clean so I can get rid of it easily - probably to my mom's school or something. But for now, I have my new shiny.

Now I just gotta name it. :D

Anyways. Nothing much new on this end, just continuing to excavate my room and pack and buy. Gah. I had to set up an entirely new bank account at a credit union too, so that I don't end up paying a couple hundred bucks in ATM fees.

I was at Borders on Monday, and I got an awesome new book there - Musicophilia, by a guy named Oliver Sacks. It's actually pretty cool; it deals with how music affects and is linked to our brains - it talks about synthensia, how music is processed in the mind and why it affects our emotions, how electrical currents can mess with our brain processes and awaken potential that before we couldn't access. It's really amazing, it goes into the whole emotional and psychological aspect of music as well as the scientific. I'm kinda surprised by how interesting it is. This is the kind of science I LIKE! XD

Yeah. I'm a band geek.

HOLY SHRIMPSICLES!

COLLEGE STUFF! [Aug. 14th, 2010|03:20 pm]

My schedule for zee coming semester:

Read the schedule?Collapse )

Anyways, other than that...I am busy excavating my room (literally) and packing everything I own (not quite so literally) and doing my best not to haul every single book I own to campus with me (excruciatingly painful). Most of my dorm essentials are here already - I'm getting a microwave and minifridge soon, and laptop should be here within the week. I talked to my roommate yesterday...she seems...OK. Nice enough, but kinda uppity and lax on the room prep. Which would be the reason why I'm spending two hundred bucks on the microwave and fridge instead of being helped out a bit. This annoys me.

But maybe I'm wrong about her, and she'll turn out to be better than my first impression. At any rate, I hope the people we share our bathroom with (it's two people a room with a cojoining bathroom) are nice.

I'm going to go continue my archaelogical dig now. :D

What kind of act would you want to perform if you joined the circus?

TRAPEZE! :D

Or possibly a clown. Just because I'm a dork.

Hello again, sweethearts. *grins sheepishly and waves*

I realize I've been gone for...ages. As in months. I apologize sincerely. You have my permission to beat me over the head with a very large shovel or any other implement you find suitable.

Well, after a very long and unexplained leave of absence, I've made up my mind to return to LJ. Which feels rather nice, I might say. :D Anyway, I'm here, so I shall give a brief synopsis of what else life is at the moment.

First off, hello to the lovely peoples (blessed little marshmallows you are *pat pat*) who added me while I was in dreamland. It's marvelous to meet you all, and I'm terribly sorry for ignoring you. *waves and offers cuppycakes* Secondly, my longtime friends - I am so sorry for abandoning you all. It was horrible of me. Huggles for all of you. <3 And thirdly, thank you to the darling bewarethejabb , whose enduringly sweet comments knocked me on the head hard enough to get me back on here. Thanks, sweetheart. :)

All right, now for my mini-monologue, so you guys aren't lost once I start writing again. I'm Emily, and still 17. Last time you guys heard from me, I was off to be a freshman at Grand Valley State University. That is no longer - due to some financial stuff, as well as me not being keen on GVSU after my visit, I will instead be at Northwestern Michigan College up in Traverse City for a year before I (hopefully) transfer to NYU or Berklee. What's awesome is I can still concentrate on my music - no marching band, but I have a professor who gives me private lessons on the trumpet, as well as four other music classes. Plus Taekwondo, which is just plain badass. XD As to the reason I've been gone for so long...I've been kinda going through a rough patch. Graduating was a huge deal, some family issues, I lost contact with someone I love lots, general bleagh stuff, I guess. The point is, I'm here, I'm fine. I'm excited to go to college - I love the city. Lots of opportunities - I might even have a paid regular gig at one of the local clubs! *screams in delight* For the first time in a while, I think life's gonna be all right.

In the meantime, if you guys would like to add me on Facebook, please do! Just tell me you're an LJ person so I know I'm not adding a creeper. ;) facebook.com/enteringxghost

HAVE A KIDNEY!

I can't think. Too much going on in my head. School. Music. Them, him, her, you, me. I'm scared.

I have so much work I should be doing. Science shit, stuff for auditions, on and on. I could stay up until three in the morning and it still wouldn't all be done.

But instead, I think I will go and sit outside and watch the grey sky and wait for more of the rain.

I am so terrible. I haven't posted in a month at least, and I have no clue why. :( I'm sorry for being absent for so long, guys. My bad. My only excuse is that I have been equally very busy/lazy lately, so I will do my best to not skip out on you for so long again. After I'm finished here, I'll go comment on a month's worth of entries.

UPDATE/RANDOM TODAY STUFF LIST!

1. I've been accepted to Western Michigan, Grand Valley, and Central Michigan, so YAY! :D I have a crazy amount of auditions coming up (first one on Friday).
2. FINALLY done with my stupid research project. All I have to do is take it to school tomorrow and add in graphs, and then I can give it to Mr. D. and be finished with it. After I present it at some stupid science fair, of course. :P
3. My room is a mess.
4. I bought a trombone! *squee*
5. Today, I had a SoBe. It was delicious.
6. Also did some shopping today, mostly for my mom, but I grabbed some other stuff too (birthday coming up I must shop for :D).
7. In band, we got a 2 at District Festival. I almost screamed.
8. When I was walking into Walgreens today, some dude that was about seventy times taller than me and built like a freaking brick wall wolf-whistled at me. I dunno if it's just me or what, but that kind of stuff creeps me out like no other. You know, "Thank you for the, um, y'know, compliment, but, um, get AWAY from me!"
9. Final exams this week. *dies*
10. I'm hungry. A grilled cheese sandwich calls.

I'll come back and comment. :) Bye guys!

1. Dark chocolate is still heavenly.
2. I need a new glass cover for my Razor (it's cracked, and it's going to fall apart any second).
3. Alesana is coming to Michigan, and I CAN'T GO! *cries*
4. Because I do not particularly enjoy watermelon, I am apparently going to be forcefed watermelon until I enjoy the taste of that disgusting (except on Watermelon Wednesday at band camp) fruit. (My boyfriend is such a charmer. ;) )
5. These stupid colleges take way too long to accept/deny applications and schedule audtions. *grumbles*
6. Did you know the earth's magnetic field completely reverses itself every two hundred fifty thousand years or so? I did not. (Blame my geeky friends in my independent study science class.)
7. My dad thinks www.averagewizard.com is the best site ever. I'm glad there's one other Harry Potter geek in the family. :D
8. Writing Shakespearean sonnets in correct iambic pentameter is incredibly hard. But I did it.
9. The best things in life involve being a complete and total dork. (But I'm a band geek. I think I already knew that.)

That is all.

MISCHIEF MANAGED!
