2.0.1.3.

2.0.1.3.


Everyone, every year has new years resolutions. I never, really made any; I said I one or two but by March I couldn't tell you want I decided on. This year, I have some set ones. My mom always told me you have a personal, professional, and other resolution, so here are mine:

Personal I Get to college: Yes, I have gotten into a college, well 3, but I would only enjoy one of them. Although I am still waiting for hear back from 4 (2 which I would consider going), my ultimate goal is to actually get there. Yes, no matter what, I will get to college, but it is a huge landmark and a beginning to a new, exciting time!

Professional I Make some connections: I was considering just putting "graduate high school" in this part, but that is kind of the same thing as "get to college" and, in my house, non-optional (although my mom did approve of my idea of dropping out of school and becoming a white girl rapper last year). However, to get anywhere in today's society, you need connections and it's about time I start actually make some on my own and not through my mom.

Other I reduce the number of panic attacks I have: Although none of you know me personally, you might pick this up on my twitter, I have panic attacks all the time, some of my friends don't even know this though, weird? I have plenty of psychological issues that need to be worked out, pronto, but this one is important. I can't tell you the number of times in the past week that I have found myself sobbing and panicking because too many things were "changing"- nothing really changed though. I am a mess ball of a person!



Well, that just got super personal, for me at least, but tell you want your new year resolution(s) are!?

Plans



I think we all know the stress that we all feel around Christmas and the new year. We all have to buy presents, find an outfit to wear to a party, study for finals (before or after break), however it is more stressful is a senior of any kind.

Right now, I have to make so many plans; plans for college, plans for my career, plans for where I want to live, plans for my GRADUATION DRESS (we don't wear gowns, we have to buy long white gowns with my restrictions), etc. At least, I don't have to stress as much as my sister- who is stressing about her navy scholarship.

There is so many fun things to plan too; decorating my dorm room, get togethers with friends, and the most exciting one that I am currently planning, going to the US Open this September (it isn't Wimbledon, but it will be a blast- I really hope I can go!)

So, planning takes time and effort, and honestly just pure stresses you out. So, the real question is, How can you handle the stress of making plans?

That is something that I will constantly be trying to figure out. But, I am sure you guys are excited for my "Going to College" series. Let me know if you have any suggestions on how to handle this stress, it is CRAZY!

XOXO

Life in Magazines Playlist no. 4


Let me know if you want these in youtube playlist or not... 
My pandora is still up,too!



Okay real quick: 
My world religions teacher (who is a real prude) was talking today about how much she disapproves of the Die Young music video by Ke$ha (not the lyrical). Anyway, I was listening to my playlist above and while watch the If I Ever Feel Better music video I realized that it was quite fitting to Die Young. 

So if you have time on break or what to take a break from studying- mute the If I Ever Feel Better music video while playing the Die Young song and let me know what you think. I think everything works accept the ending ( a little bit)

XOXO

Christmas Party by Yourself

Christmas Party by Yourself

Christmas Party by Yourself by annaxoxx featuring knit shirts

Sweater
Leggings
Boots
~~

Videos I recommend watching on Netflix:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer- The Complete Series:  This can take you years to watch- or if you are my Stephaine (a friend) and I, it can talk you 3 weeks- during the school year- with homework. Defiantly a proud accomplishment #noshame
Waiting for Forever- This is tied with Spice World and The Art of Getting By as my favorite movie. My mom hates the way I describe it but the only way I know how is creepy, cute... watch and you will know what I mean.
Parks and Recreation- This has to be one of my FAVORITE shows. It is literally on loop on my Netflix. I can watch it forever and for hours!

There are also others like:
Breakfast at Tiffany's
NYC Prep
Gossip Girl
Pretty Little Liars
Getting There
Sabrina
How I Met Your Mothers
Angel (season 5 when Spike is in it!)
The Office
Hart Of Dixie
30 Rock
etc....

XOXO
