So last Saturday was my birthday, and it was so fun and fabulous! Most of my closest friends came to visit me at the antique booth to listen to records and eat pizza all day. I've never felt older the day of my birthday, but yesterday I had to go to school to fix my schedule, and it all hit me. After this school year, I'm going to college, moving out, and actually starting my life. I got all these weird, anxious feelings (some good, some bad), and I've had them since yesterday. I've been really stressing out about college, because all the places I'm interested in are SO expensive (like $45,000+ a year), and, urgh, I just want to go to a school I really like, because I love learning and asdfghjkl. I'm starting to fill out scholarships (I got one last year for German), and I never realized how hard it is to write an essay about yourself! I thought it would be easy since I blog about myself or whatever, but nooooooo. All I know is that whatever happens it's meant to be, and I just want to be happy. SO YEAH. It's weird, I'm anxious for school to start, but I don't want it to come back (if that makes any sense). It's probably because it's my senior year and the best years of my life are slowly fading away blah blah blah. The past week I've found a lot of inspiration photos of teenagers and school vibes. Urgh, don't you hate that ominous high school feeling? (if anyone besides me gets them...)

 Here is (most) of my birthday presents! I got lots of craft supplies, a cute top that says "dumb is never cute", custom prayer candles, moonrise kingdom patch, stickers, Dale Cooper frame and some of the cutest birthday cards I've ever got! My mom also got me an Etsy giftcard (BECAUSE SHE'S THE BEST), and I've already spent all of it on two vintage dresses and lots of pins (which you will see soon)!
