Someone please help me understand.

Something that's come to my attention lately that's really annoying/concerning me: how popular the "IDGAF" attitude has gotten.

Like, seriously?

I see so many tweets, statuses, what have you, that basically say "the less of a fuck you give, the happier you'll be.", what?

First off, that logic is not even realistic, in my opinion. I mean call me crazy, but in order to be happy, one normally has to enjoy what they're doing, right? As in, they actually "give a fuck" about what their doing? Boom.

Anyways, I just honestly do not get why alotta people would prefer to not care about well, alot these days, and just say "fish." Like, no. That's a stupid choice. It's like, you have the power to turn pretty much any situation better in life, and if you just say "screw it" all the time, then where does that get you?  Basically, it just really annoys me to see people waste life, especially when so many other people never get a chance to really live life we get to here in Amurrica.

Now, I can somewhat understand why people would rather not put themselves out there completely at times. I'm definitely like that too. But, at the same time, I wish I wasn't. Cause I feel like it's necessary to put your whole self into everything you do, you know? YOLO. So I guess what I'm trying to say in this rambling blog, is that people should try to start caring more. You're gonna get hurt in life regardless. Life is meant to hurt. But it's a beautiful thing, and the pain makes it real. & Most of the time, the more you actually get out there and start "giving a fuck" about things and people, the more people are actually gonna like you, and the happier you'll be.  SO STOP IT, EVERYBODY :)

Kay, that is all. Sorry if this doesn't make sense at all, and I just wasted your life. Just needed to get it off of my chest. :b

Never changing my password again.

Let me just take a moment to explain my frustrations at the moment/explain why I couldn't blog for the longest time.

(deep breath)

Me, being my stupid self, thought it would be a great idea to reset my passwords to almost all my major accounts (Youtube, Twitter [follow me, @ohheyyalicia, it's like as addicting as crack], & my yahoo e-mail account). I mean, it's good to reset your passwords every once and awhile, right?


Lemme give you the quick background. Before this very late night when this thought occured (like, atleast 2 in the morning) I had taken a significant amount of Benadryl pills combined with that that Benadryl lotion or whatever that you can actually just apply on your skin. Since then, I've learned that that stuff is seriously like Alicia Campbell's version of weed. It makes me get SOOOOO weird, you guys don't even understand. But normally it knocks me out pretty quick, so I don't worry about it. But not this time, ofcourse.

So..big lesson learned. Don't take Benadryl late at night and change all your passwords to stupid things you'll never remember the next morning. Example: tothewindowstothewalls13. I'm not even kidding. You will be locked out of all your accounts, get very frustrated, and probably cry alot.

Well, now that I've ranted about that forever, I honestly forget what I was gonna blog about. So...hope everybody's having a sexual summer. In the good way ;)
I'll definitely blog more, 'cause I have nothing better to do with life when I'm not soccering/working. And I'll probs get back to the StayClassy thang. Eventually....

Night crackaz. <3

Ohhey, blogging.

Ohmy, I don't even know how long it's been. Nor do I feel like calculating it. So, where to start...?

Um, summer. Yay. :)

I've listened to some pretty legit music this summer, so here's some of it. :)

1) "Nothing is written,leaving pure hearts still smitten. Once we finally get to where we want to be,we are already preparing to leave." -Mumford & Sons, from Nothing is Written. They are quickly and surely becoming my all time favorite band. Best lyrics out there, <3

2) Home-Phil Phillips. Ohmygosh, this song is amazing. I can't believe I actually wanted Jessica to win American Idol after hearing this (Not that I even watch it religiously, but I thought she was pretty good from what I saw). "Settle down, it'll all be clear. Don't pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear" <3

3) Times-Tenth Avenue North. Hands down, best Christian song I have ever heard.

4) Home-Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. So, so good. The little story towards the end between Jane and Alexander makes my heart melt. "Home, let me come home. Home is wherever I'm with you."

5) Pretty much everything by Ben Rector. I've sorted my favorite songs by him. :b
White Dress-when you're happy :)
When A Heart Breaks-when you're really depressed :(
Moving Backwards-when you're reflective
Out of My Head-when you're just really calm and carefree :)

6) Midnight City-M83. Makes me wanna dance, but that's pretty much it. :/


8) Island In The Sun-Old school and classy, JU$+ h0w 1 lyk3 1+ :) also, perfect for the beach

9) Downtown Girl-Hot Chelle Rae. Also love everything about this song. Too bad they suck live.

10) Build Me A Girl & You Should Know Better-Andy Grammer. <3

11) Between The Lines-Sara Bareilles. Lovelovelove.

12) Pollen and Salt-Daphne Loves Derby; will always be one of my favorite songs. Perfect for if you're trying to fall asleep.

13) Arms-Seabear and First Day of My Life-Bright Eyes are also perfect when you wanna sleep.

14) Lonely Lullaby-Owl City. Perfection.

15) Closer to Love & Ships In The Night-Mat Kearney. This guy's music = the music of Jesus

16) Some Nights-Fun. Makes me sooooo happy. :D

Kay, that's enough. It's like, 12:30 & I have an 8 hour shift tomorrow, weeeeee.

Goodnight everyone, <3

It's always summer in my heart, and in my soul. :)

^Blog title from Always Summer by Yellowcard. <3

The fact that we only have one (and a half) days left of school makes me soso happy. But, at the same time, I'm really gonna miss this year. For alotta reasons:
1) It was so exciting! Everybody getting their licenses, and going on adventures, without being driven by our parents ;) because yolo.

2) I got so much closer to so many awesome people. I don't feel like making a list, but I'm sure they know who they are.

3) This was the last year I got to be with Jenna every day. I'll miss her so much. :(

4) Next year's gonna be all about college and leaving each other, and it's gonna be sad. Although this year was hard, we all suffered together. <3

But, we've still got this summer, our senior summer (I don't consider next summer our senior summer, that's like, college summer..).  & I'm determined to make it awesome.

What I'm doing so far is...

-soccer practice, alot
-Mountains with Jenna :)
-Beach with Savannah and her family, but not Seth :(

& Now I'm off to the pool to get black. Have a great Memorial Day everybody, and thanks to all the brave men and women that fight for our country. <3

Stay Classy blog : 3.

So, everybody knows what this means. But if you're stupid, I'll clear it up.

You Only Live Once.

& I know alotta people hate it, and alotta people love it. I definitely think it's legit, and I've been getting super annoyed at people that don't like it. And it's fine not to like things obviously, but there a huge difference between people that genuinely hate things, and people that...don't. Here's how:

Think to yourself, why do I hate when people say 'yolo'?

Is it because it's from a rap song? Is it because it's so mainstream and you're just way too cool to like mainstream things? Is it because it's "over-used" and you're sick and tired of hearing it? Ughh, just shut up. I'm sorry. But I know you like it if those are your reasons, and all of those reasons are lame anyways. It's just like any other inspiring quote, but it's set to one of the sickest songs ever. And, it's freaking catchy. So nigga, please. Calmdown.

I am sorry for saying nigga. Jk, I'm not.

Anyways, yeah. That's pretty much all I hada say. I was just really annoyed of seeing statuses (satus..i?) telling people to stop doing/saying certain things, like yolo. LET THEM LIVEEEE. & If it annoys you, then get the frick off of Facebook & live yourself.

That is all. And I'm really not as mad as this blog makes me sound, :b
Hope you hada great weekend, <3

Things girls shouldn't do on Facebook.

Stay classy blog : 2.

*Disclaimer : I'm not purposely attacking anyone here. I'm not a drama person, and that's not the purpose of this. Just trying to bring to attention the things that everyone can work on to be better, classier people. SO NOBODY GET MAD. :)

Okay, so I could probably write a whole book on this. Seriously. And I'm gonna come right out and say, that I have done alot of what I'm about to say I hate. Hypocrite? Nah. 'Cause you learn, and don't do it again. Also, there's a lot of exceptions to these...rules? I guess that's what you can call 'em :b, anyways if there's a lot of exceptions, I'll put a *. Symbols, ftw.

(in no particular order)

#1: Don't openly creep. Or privately creep. JUST DON'T CREEP. *

Hi, my name's life. I would like to meet you sometimes, but you're always stuck up in somebody's else's life. You've only got so many days to have me, so maybe we should get together soon, justa thought. Kay, I get it. Everybody creeps. And it's totally normal to be curious about other people's lives, and want to know how people you care about are doing. Trust me, I really do understand. But there is a big freaking line, that way too many people cross.
Examples of when you know you're creeping way too hard:

-You stalk your exboyfriend. Every day. Or even every week. Or, you stalk your "boyfriend" (which, newsflash, you never actually dated. Just because you guys "talk every day!" doesn't mean you dating. I'm sorry, I just hate that :b) Girl, please. He's not doing the same for you, I can guarantee. You're better than that, and you're just wasting your time.

Example of when creeping is okay, in my mind:

common wall post: "Hey girll, I was just creeping on your Facebook, and it made me realize how much I miss you. Let's hangout soon <3"

why it's okay: It's short, it's simple. There's nothing more annoying than seeing somebody write a book on somebody's wall to basically state what those two sentences say. You have a cellphone I'm sure, do us all a favor and text her. Which reminds me, that although this is an okay reason to creep, it does get alittle annoying sometimes. I agree wholeheartedly with the idea that if you really do miss someone a lot, you should tell them in person.


Oh gosh. Let me just say now, how it utterly disgusts me how many girls these days don't have an once of respect for themselves these days. I'm sure everybody knows what I mean.

I'm gonna keep it short:

-PUT YOUR BOOBS AWAY, I DON'T WANT TO SEE THEMMMMM. Guys that are actually worth a relationship don't find it cute, and won't like your picture, which is the only reason why you posted it in the first place.
-GET SOME VARIETY. If every single one of your pictures look the same, and you're just with different people, you really needa think why you're posting them. Most likely, you just wanna make it look like you have a life, and lots of friends. You're just wasting your camera battery and making albums that nobody cares about anyways. "______year #40040409504853480583405!" doesn't make me think that you have a lot of friends, it just makes me laugh that you think that all those pictures are gonna actually be meaningful in the years to come.

#3 : A meaningful status.

I know everybody has that person (or people) that just makes the most annoying, pointless statuses in the world. It's annoying, right? SO STOP. There's this new thing called Twitter, and you can take all your updates there. Simple as that, :b. Also, I don't wanna hear your life story of Facebook. I really don't. I'm sorry if it's rude, but your statuses that say how pissed off you are, how your parents don't understand you, and how everything just sucks for you don't make me feel bad. You're doing it for attention. If things really get that bad and you turn to Facebook for comfort, then that needs to change. You have God, your friends, and your family for you there. Facebook isn't gonna hug you, reply to you, and give you advice. It's a website. And people just don't take that kinda stuff seriously on Facebook, it just comes off as annoying.

#4 : Punctuation. Grammar. Their. They're. There. Commas. Apostrophes. You get the point.

Kay, I'm done. Like I said, there's so much more, but I feel like this is already a lot. Goodnight everyone, <3

-Stay classy.

Stay classy.

The other night, Jenna and myself went out for wings, & we had this awesome idea.

Question for you: What is the biggest problem among teenagers these days?

Answer: They. don't. know. how. to. be. classy.

Classy : of high class, rank, or grade; stylish; admirably smart; elegant. Basically, it means you're not a slut, that you're genuinely nice to everyone, you try your hardest in school, stay away from drugs/alcohol, etc.

So, the conversation went kinda like this...

Jenna : Ohmygosh (insert name of some person I honestly forget) ? I love her! She's so....classy.
Me : I KNOW. Why can't everyone be like her?
Jenna : Forreal!
Me : I just feel like I wanna hold speeches and lecture everyone on how to act. Like, Stay Classy 101 or something.

Me : Ahhh, yes! And we could blog about it every week!
...Which leads me to what I'm doing right now. :b

I realize, this is purely our opinion. I am not perfect. I am not always classy. Nobody is. But let's be honest, some teenages (*cough, most) really need a punch of classy to the face these days. So, this is either gonna a fail or a hit. & That's okay with us.


Now, I know a lottta people do this. & Not gonna lie, I've done it too. But there's a big big difference between being funny about it, and being just straightup annoying.

Funny example :

"Hey, can you do a favor for me?"
"Ugh, fine. It better not be like, hard though."


Annoying example : Anything complaining about your looks getting worse, and that's why you can't get a guy anymore. Anything that mentions that fact that all guys suck, and you just can't find a good one. Anything that involves your photo caption to pictures including the words "forever alone".

Please, just stop. Having a boyfriend does NOT mean happiness. It's actuallly realllly stressful half the time. & You're beautiful, you don't need a guy to tell you that. & You're what, a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior this? Please. You've got 30490329320583583902 more years to worry about that. LIVE.

Kay, that's all. I'm gonna go see the Hunger Games now, ahhhhhh. :DDD

Stay classy.

RIP, Zach Millhouse.

Last Wednesday night, a really great guy was taken to a better place.  Unfortunately, that place isn't with his family, his friends, his girlfriend, or his fellow tribe.  Whether you knew him well or not, Zach Millhouse is going to be extremely missed at Donegal.  I remember all the classes we had together, and what a freaking hilarious guy you were.  You could turn the most boring class ever into a fun one.  Never ever gonna forget, the was seriously one of the best days of my 8th grade year. 

My heart goes out to everyone that was really close or related to Zach. I'll be praying for everyone who was close or related to him, that God would give you the peace and strength to get through the days until we'll all be reunited with Zach again.  I know the hurt of loosing a loved one, and it's near impossible to deal with without a strong community back behind ya.  I'm sure
 he's smiling down at us, seeing how we really do have that here at Donegal.  We showed it last Friday with our sea of green, and we'll continue to show it every day because he had such a big impact on us all.  Zach would be so proud to see our small, little school come together at this time to grieve and remember our favorite memories. I know it's what Zach would wanna see, even though we'd all like him to be here again more than anything.

What I've learned this week is that things disappear quickly.  I know your life may seem really hard, that nothing's going right for you, that everything just sucks sometimes.  But we needa remember to always be grateful for what and who we do have, because God can take them back at anytime.  I think it's safe to say that Zach's taugh us all that this week.  Can't wait to see you tonight Zach, rest easy. <3

New year, new start.

Oh whatta year it's been. I'm not gonna go through and list my every little awesome thing that happened, even I think that's boring. But obviously I've learned alot & had experiences I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. I've learned about myself too, and who the most important people in my life are. I don't have a single regret, and I can't wait for an even better year in 2012. :)

New Year's resolutions are always lame, but I DON'T CARE.

1) Stop worrying about stupid things that don't matter, & just live my life. I've realized that this is so much easier than it sounds, but I'm freaking 17. Why not leave the stress, drama, and anxiety for when I'm older?

2) Get on Facebook less. Kinda relates to #1 :b
3) Have the best summer of my life, and spend as much time as I can with Jenna. I'm gonna miss her more than I even wanna think about right now, so we're gonna go hard this year <3
4) Not fall in love, but find someone that I can be happy with. Why? 'Cause I'm young, & I'm over believing that stuff's actually gonna work right now. When you're in highschool, you shouldn't be finding your soulmate, you should be having fun. :)

5) Keep all my wonderful friends that I have now, get closer to the ones that I don't talk to as much, leave that ones that aren't worth it, & make lots of new ones.

Yup, that's all I can think of right now. So Happy New Year to everyone that blogs or reads this, <3
