It's Been A While...

So yes, I haven't been blogging for over a year now. The tricky thing for me is that life gets in the way. Like in really big ways sometimes. Two years ago come October I was hospitalized for endocarditis of the heart. (In normal-people words that means I got a bacterial infection that damaged my heart) I was in and out of that dim room for three months. Looking back on the experience I only have positive memories, though. I guess it's a coping mechanism. Anyways, that summer I went to New York to take a workshop at the Fashion Institute of Technology. A week after that I flew to Stanford to get open heart surgery at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. I was in the hospital for four days. I started high school two weeks later. Now I am just beginning my sophomore year and feeling like that whole ordeal was a dream. Seriously, people will stare at my scar and I won't even realize what they were looking at until after they walk away. But I don't mind, I have a kick-ass story to go with it, so by all means stare away.
             *Sidenote: All of these mom's that talk to me about "my condition" are so annoying. They are always say something like, "Wow, that's so amazing that you aren't afraid to show your scar." Well, no it's not that amazing. I don't care if it shows because I'm not going to let a scar dictate what I can/can't wear. I understand that they are being nice and trying to make me feel good about it and blah, blah, blah... but it really isn't necessary. Honestly, I don't have any bitterness about what I went through. Okay, enough of this ranting about my scar, back to the point...
It's so early in the school year, but I already want it to be over. Just high school in general. It's not that fun...  I'd much rather be studying abroad or contributing something to society. So that's what I've decided to do with my blog. I'm going to really start contributing my opinions on teenage struggles, what's going on in the world, and fashion, fashion, and fashion! I'll be posting regularly on Wednesdays now and sometimes in between. Thank you so much for enduring this dreadfully long post!  ♥
