Flowers Blooming in the Rain
______I feel like I've been dressing extra girly lately. Look at me wearing all these ultra feminine pieces. Where is the boldness, Ali? Where is that brash Viking heritage of yours? Hiding, it is. Hiding behind an outfit that consists of a flowery print skirt and a lace peter pan collared top.
______If my Viking ancestors ever saw me in this, they would probably be super ashamed and kick me out of their cool Viking tribe (that, or they would eat me). And even after doing so, I'm sure that they'd still be furious since Vikings really don't have control over their constantly raging emotions, and in turn, they'd probably have to run off to terrorize random villagers to let off even more steam (that, or they would eat the villagers). Wow, Ali, there's so much cannibalism in your post--chill out.
______Oh, I'm sorry. I've just been a little lost lately. It seems like I've approached a big old stop sign in my life, and I'm not entirely sure about how to get past it. I've been wanting to do everything bigger and better lately and just make something great, or do something extraordinary, or accomplish something so I feel like I'm moving forward in life. I mean, I really do feel like I've accomplished quite a bit this summer, but it still feels like there's something missing, something that must be done in order to solidify those accomplishments and kind of top it all off. I just hope that I can figure out what exactly it is that must be done to make my summer feel complete--and I've got a week to figure it out!
