Why blog?

"People don't keep journals for themselves. They keep them for other people, like a secret they don't want to tell, but they want everyone to know."

That's what this is right? My online journal. To be honest I write more on this than I would write in a journal. But why do I write? I write because there is an exigency to write. Writing all of this down helps me stay sane and it's also like a written scrapbook for me. I'm horrible about taking pictures.

Red-Nosed Magpie

Saturday I went to clean up the nearby beach with my friend and some other people. Did my part for mother nature, collected some neat shells, talked to bob a bit, and overall had a blast. However, I forgot to apply sunblock, so now my nose and cheeks are pinker than the rest of my face and you can see where my watch had been on my wrist yesterday... Yay...
Usually I would not care too much about my tiny burn, but... Tomorrow happens to be picture day at my school. Great. So now I could very well having a peeling nose and cheeks in my yearbook photo. Super de duper. Ugh I knew I was forgetting something. :/
Off to bed before I have I get dark bags under my eyes to go with the rest of my not photogenic face. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

Rant of the Week

I'm sure most of us have taken some sort of survey or test where you get the question asking you what race/ethnicity you are, and you check one of the boxes. What are those for? Why does it even really matter? What if you don't know how to answer that question?
Up until today I have always marked the "White/Caucasian" box, but what does that really mean? Sure my skin is white, but because I'm also Native American would I check that box too? I think I have a little Asian somewhere too, so should I check that box as well? Or maybe I should check other.
It's such an odd question.. And again why does it even matter? Are you just going to use that information to make snap judgements about me? Oh you're white, you have nice clothes, and you lives on the good side of town, so you are probably snooty and mean. Or.. Oh you're black, you live in the ghetto, and you listen to rap music, so you are bad news.
So what?
Did you know that most people know within 3 seconds whether or not they like or don't like some one. 3 seconds! That's insane. Then after you make that decision it takes 20 times for you to change your mind about that one person.
I hated this one girl last year for a while. I had never met her, never seen her, nothing, but I just didn't like her. Now? Now, we are inseparable; best friends for a year now.
I know I'm probably just going on this crazy, confusing rant right now, but this just kind of stick with me today.

I wonder what would happen if I just left that question blank? What do you think?

There's an app for that.

Yesterday I was thinking of ways that I could better manage my time, so that I could blog more. Well, I when I was eating my cereal just a few minutes ago (honey nut oats) an apple commercial came on tv and...


There's probably an app for that. I checked on the iTunes website thing and sure enough there was this great app (that I am using right now) that is super easy and free. Seriously this app is so amazing. (:
Well I just thought I would let ya know that I got it. I should be able to blog tons more. Yay! Haha I haven't really been doing the best job about posting and stuff but I shall try to improve starting...

Dear Birds,

I love birds, really I do. My blogger is name is Magpie. Birds are great! Well.. most of them are.. I'm not a big fan of pigeons or seagulls, but all other birds are fine by me. However, when you start tweet tweet tweeting outside of my window at 2 in the morning.. I'm not a huge fan. If I wanted to hear tweeting I would get on twitter. I know I'm not the only one who doesn't care for your pre-dawn concerts, and you should really be sleeping too. How would you feel if I opened my window and started singing some loud opera when you're trying to catch some z's. Basically what I'm trying to say is...


Thank you.

John Mayer + Owl City = Love

Okay so last night... wait for it... wait for it... drumroll please. (badadabadadabadada)


Whooooop!! Yay!! (Oh and he was pretty much wearing exactly that haha)

So as you can see I had an amazing time. John Mayer is amazing live and I was in love the entire time. haha
As if going to see him in concert wasn't cool enough, guess who was the opener band. I'll give you a hint.. it's in the Title of this blog. (:


(He was pretty much wearing that too) Ahhh it was such an experience going to see those guys. Adam Young and John Mayer are simply enchanting and I couldn't have asked for a better first concert.
Yes, that is right boys and girls! I had never been to a concert prior to last night. Really though, I'm glad I waited.

I've thought about who I wanted to see for my first one quite a bit, and I had convinced myself that it would be Paramore. These tickets just kind of appeared (my friend couldn't go, so he sold them to me) and I adore John Mayer so I said HECK YES! I'm really glad I did.

I can't wait to go to school tomorrow and wear my first ever concert T-shirt!! So exciting!! It's blue and it has "It's been a long night in ________." and on the back it has a list of the tour dates. I made sure it had the dates on there. haha I don't really know why I like that so much, but I do so. haha The only thing that could have been better is if they still had the shirt in my size. I am a small and all they had left were Mediums and Larges etc. Oh well, this way I figure I will be able to wear it for quite a while. (:

Well I am going to go to sleep because I am absolutely exhausted. I really need to thank my friend tomorrow. Night bloggers!
