WHAT UP 2011!!!!

Hey Ya'll :) hoping everyones year so far is as perfect as they've imagined. Get ready to be surprised, my new years resolutions are not dead yet! i know right? For those of you still going strong, keep up the good work!

I am SUPER PUMPED! i found out that the YAS summerstage is going to be CINDERELLA. I am so excited i've officially decided to go into Princess Boot Camp. Consisting of, but not limiting to the following:

1) continuing P90X until i lose weight or just implode from exhaustion
2) think more of others and less of myself
3) watch all the disney princess movies (including mulan and pocahontis, even though they arent technically princesses)
4) work on my range for my audition
5) work hard at my job to get enough money to pay for the whole thing myself

I am so pumped to do all of these things :) also i've decided to end this post with a segment i call: RACHELS FAVORITE THINGS


Here's a facial for all you ladies who want to feel awesome but are on a budget (includes myself):
  • mix a few table spoons of sugar with some vanilla extract
  • add a tiny bit of water (it should be thick and not soupy)
  • spread on your face and let dry for a bit (dont freak out, it'll feel strange...also it tastes pretty good :D)
  • wipe off after about 5 minutes with a warm washcloth
2) http://www.najle.com/idaft/idaft/ is an awesome website that i was shown and it made my day. try it :D

So long, 2010

So its the end of this year. Frankly, i say good riddance. it was fun, but im happy its over. So much has happened...this year i was in love, had my first breakup, fell out of love, lost friends, gained friends, doubted myself a whole lot more, became a whole lot stronger, and decided who i am. if thats not a full year i dunno what is ;)

Now. for my new years resolutions of 2011:

1. Lose the weight i gained freshman and sophomore year (cliche right?)
2. try to stop caring so much about what other people think of me
3. stop trying to find love. it can find me now.
4. less facebook, more textbooks
5. Live life, have fun with friends, most of them are graduating this year anyway

Probably the most important thing on that list is i need to stop trying to find love. What i mean is, no more looking for guys. If a guy wants me, he can come find me, i am DONE with liking people who arent gonna look my way. im putting my love in a better place. Im putting some of it into myself. i havent liked my body in a while, i need to start loving myself in my own skin before i can even think of a relationship. More importantly im going to start pouring my love into someone who really would appreciate it. I just signed up to sponser Tesline, a 7-year-old girl in Ghana whos comunity is affected by AIDS. This little girl deals with a heck of a lot more than i do, and she deserves someone to be there for her. thats my main concern for 2011

Happy new year, stick with those resolutions

peace and love,

rachel <3

something to think about...

HI-LO everybody :) hope everyone had a GREAT christmas and everyone is looking foreward to the new year. I wanted to really say something thats been on my heart, something everyone should take a second and think about. People always talk about the "spirit of christmas", you know, that thing that fills everyones heart and makes them want to give. I believe in that more than anyone, but i believe that spirit and those feelings shouldnt be limited to christmas alone. I think the world would be a better place if people would stop. just stop more. stop and look around, see if they can do anything to make someones day. If every person stopped once a week to go out of their way and do something nice for someone else, and those people payed that kindness foreward, things could change. People dont think that a small thing like paying for someones meal in a drive thru or helping a neighbor rake leaves can do much, but they dont look at how one good thing makes a ripple effect and can do a whole lot of good.

just a thought. try to go out of your way this week. only once or twice, but try it. it may do more for someone than you realize

pay it foreward <3

i swear im going to start posting more!

I swear you never realize how busy you are until you look in a diary (or in this case on your blog) and see that i haven't written since august. Scouts honor i am SO writing more this month and in 2011. So this post i'd like to address the topic of love. and also christmas. be prepared for a rant. GO!

LOVE. think about the word for a minute. It's one of the most beautiful, and yet most painful thing humans can feel. How do you know when you're in love? usually the feelings are a little strange. A happy, warm feeling followed sometimes by a flop sweat and choking on your own tongue. Oh yeah, thats attractive. mmmmhhhmmm love is great to look at.... well it can be as long as both parties feel the same way. You know how you see a couple adn they just look so happy with each other? thats the great kind of couple love people "awwww :) " at. When you see a boy talking to one of his friends and she looks happy but is digging her nails into her arm to keep from shouting "SHUT UP I LOVE YOU" thats the one way love where people go "awww" more in pity. Heres what i think about love and christmastime: People say a lot of relationships can start around valentines day, but i think christmas is the loveliest time of the year. What says "i love you so much" more than a meaningful gift from someone who's been to shy to tell you their feelings? nothing!

This christmas, show someone you love them, dont wait till valentines day, you might lose them!

Where in the world did summer go?!

SO. there are only 13 days until school starts. i'm starting to wonder where the time went. and how im supposed to get my summer reading done with 13 days left and a book and a half to read/annotate/respond to. band has already started, we even have some songs memorized?! it's all going way too quick!

I'm also making a scrapbook of all my band stuff (it's starting to accumulate) and trying to find time to hang with friends before school, i'm just a busy girl! i also have to find a way to get my pictures of my jewelry on here. so thats my plans for the next 2 weeks. 

jewelry sales.
hang with friends.

if i'm not doing one of those things i am probably sleeping or eating.

ttfn, ta ta for now

I ❤ Panera

Today i worked from 9-1:30. And i saw a ton of interesing things/people in that time. Ladies and gentlemen, for your enjoyment, strange people who come to panera:

1. The grandfather with wacky hair and his grandaughter who was wearing aviator shades and a pink wig

2. Aproximately a dozen men in their 70's who told me i was pretty as i took their orders  (that was cute, but a little uncomfortable)

3.  By far my favorite conversation with a customer (color coded for your reading pleasure)

man: it's really hot outside
me: yes it is, i'm very glad its air conditioned in here
man: It's so hot, the pole dancers are wearing oven mits! isn't that a hoot?!
me: *thinking to myself* i love you, mister
