Who knew such a small word could make such a difference in the world.

We all arrive on the planet the same way. As a single human form capable of so much more than what were given. Although we are all born the same, it doesn’t mean that we all grow up to be the same. Different people, of different families, of different cultures. We don’t share the same beliefs, ideals, or dreams. But what each and everyone of us share is the ability to change or be changed. It doesn’t matter if you did everything in your power to stop it, change needs to happen. It can either be a necessary evil or a delightful surprise.

For most of high school, my sister had only ever had her sights on this one particular university. She planned, studied, and even bought items that represented her dedication towards that university. When the time came and she opened her email it was like everything she had ever dreamed about was crushed in a matter of seconds. The long nights of endless studying had all resulted in a failure. She believed that she was a failure.

But how could she be one, when the only thing she ever did was dedicate her life to a place that never got to see her true potential?

I’ll never forget the day when I heard it. Not just the heart-wrenching sobbing but the sound of a heart being torn into a million little pieces. It wasn’t just her heart that was no longer mentally capable of functioning. It was the part of her that had the ability to believe and dream that was ruined as well.

From that moment on, I was set on believing that everything in life happens for a reason. We don’t get to choose what happens to us. It just sort of happen’s. My sister believed that her life was over. The idea that a single email could do that to a person is astonishing. This was not the end of her life, but only the beginning of a life so uncontrollably real.

You see in the real world plans change, people change, and life hits you with all that it’s got. Just because it wasn’t the life you dreamed of, doesn’t mean it isn’t the life for you. So please take control because you were given this life. Don’t ever forget that you’ll never stop being you, no matter how big or small you change. Change doesn’t have to be monumental. It can be as small as a new haircut or a new life aspiration. It’s time that we embraced the future head on, even if it’s not the future we planned on.

“The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

I’m an Addict.

Yes, you read that right.

ad·dict:  a person who is addicted to an activity, habit, or substance

Hello beautiful people of the interwebs! My name is … and I’m addicted to my bed. Well actually that would be a partial lie because I’m addicted to more than my bed. Ever since I got my new computer there has not been a day that I haven’t used it. It has come to my attention that I am in fact addicted to laziness.

This past week has been a bit rough to say the least. Unfortunately, I was feeling a bit sick and kind of out of it. I stayed home from school for 2 days and I spent my time either sleeping or on my laptop. Of course I’m glad I was able to take a break and relax from school, but it also made me realize that sometimes I can’t take my eyes off of my computer.

Last week I started a new show on Netflix and somehow it has become my mission to finish all 5 seasons in the span of 2 weeks. Why do I do this, I have no idea. Not only was I not getting out of bed this week, I also forgot about my responsibilities. To be honest I felt a sense of writer’s block. Sometimes just thinking about writing a blogpost made me feel stressed out. I would push aside my homework and brainstorming for blog posts, and instead I would log on to Netflix.

Today though I realized that I need to stop being so lazy and get some work done. I think the solution to my writer’s block was being able to recognize that I shouldn’t push myself to write. When the time comes, the words will flow out of me and onto the screen in front of me.

Okay now back to my unhealthy computer addiction.

Or my laziness addiction.

Or my Netflix addiction.

So, basically my reason for writing this was to come to terms that I do in fact have an addiction. Lots of addictions happen without us being aware of them. Being able to recognize that I have an unreasonable obsession with Netflix was the first step toward recovery. I mean once you really think about all the things that life has to offer, it puts your mind in this perspective that you do only have one life and you need to make the most of it.

Anyways I hope that you have an amazing weekend and live your life to the fullest!

An Abundance of Sweets.

Hi, everyone! This is a probably the exact place I should’nt be right now considering I have a chemistry exam tomorrow, but oh well.

So how’s your week been? It sounds weird to say that on a Monday but its feels like a Sunday to me. Thankfully I have no school today because its Presidents Day! I would like to thank the many past presidents for allowing me to sleep in bed till noon on a glorious Monday.

Anyways, my week has been filled with sweets and an unexpected visit to the carnival. On Tuesday my friend Karen and I decided to be each others valentines, solely for the reason that both of us wanted candy. And also because Valentines day is a day of love, whether it be for your boyfriend or girlfriend, parents, or just your friend.

The rest of the week was pretty uneventful unless you count the thousands of calories I ate from all the valentines candy. Every school day was practically the same thing. I went home to study, procrastinate, and attempt to do my HW.

On Friday though, I started a new series called Scandal.


It. is. amazing.

I spent the rest of my weekend lying n bed watching Scandal and munching on some buttery popcorn. It wasn’t until yesterday at around 6 pm where my mother dragged me out of bed to go to the carnival with my sister. I wasn’t too happy about it, but I went along anyways. As much as I love my little sister I knew that I would be a little bored without a friend, so I called Karen. We met with some of our other friends at the carnival and laughed the night away. It was so much fun! I don’t think I’ve had a night as free and let loose since the school year started again.


I completely forgot that today I officially start my new volunteering position at the hospital!

The struggle to get to this point was real, let me tell you. So before they allow you to start working, they require that you get the Tuberculosis skin test on each arm. It’s basically to check if you have tuberculosis and that you won’t be a harm to any of the patients at the hospital. The problem with the shots is that you need to get one first and then come back 2-3 days later and take the other shot. Once I got the second shot I was supposed to go back to the hospital 2-3 days later. Unfortunately my mom got out of work late and couldn’t take me. When I went in 4 days after, they told me I would have to get another shot because after 2-3 days the shot is invalid.

I was so annoyed.

So then I had to wait another week and here I am. Finally I get to work in the hospital! It was a good weekend and I’m sad that its over. But I really do need to get back to studying now. So goodbye and farewell 🙂

I’ll see you guys soon,

Hello wonderful people of the interwebs!

Today I’m back with another tag! Of course, you guys know the drill. A very huge thank you to the wonderful person who tagged me, ES Ordinary over at Waves of Awesomeness. Honestly her blog is truly amazing. Filled with so many beautiful pieces of poetry, I’m left speechless every time I read one. Please if you aren’t already following her blog, go check it out!

This summer for my birthday, I was lucky enough to go to Hawaii. We spent 3 days in Honolulu and the next 7 days on a cruise that visited the different islands of Hawaii. Being able to experience such an amazing culture and landscape was a dream. Everywhere we went the views were unlike any other place I had ever seen. We went to black sand beaches, zip lining through the forest, hiking up mountains. It was definitely a great experience and I hope that I can go back soon. Wait! I almost forgot that I visited Boston in the fall of 2016. It is beyond words. My dream college happens to be in that city and visiting was incredible.

4. Write the most delicious food you’ve tasted in 2016.

Is that what success is?

Is it the ability to be the best?

To ignore our stress.

To ace that test.

You see the world believes that,


is the ability to kill the rest.

To be the one student accepted into college.

To be the one student bursting with knowledge.

To be the one student who is always flawless.

We’re put through a series of standardized tests,

To measure our worth and put us on another quest

But it’s all the same




I don’t know the answer, so I’ve guessed

I’ve been pressed by everybody and now I’m depressed

“Let’s protest!” we say

“No, give it a rest” they say

“I guess it was to insane to suggest”

But is it really?

To believe in something so silly?

For one day, to live in a world where were not put up against each other

Focusing on ourselves,

instead of watching one another.

Schools were built on the foundation of formation,

Not with the ability of creation,

But with the ideals of our nation.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of UNFAIRNESS”

It’s time for us to believe that change is inevitable.

Everyone always says that life is like a series of doors.

When you close one door,

Another one opens.

So it’s okay to close some doors.

its doesn’t mean that your journey had ended,

it just means that they no longer have a purpose.

It’s time for us to stop defining success by a series of tests.

To no longer be afraid of failure.

Because guess what?

Failure is not forever.

Yesterday ended last night and today started this morning.


Hey guys! So this is my first attempt at a spoken word poetry. I’am a bit nervous because originally this project was only meant to be read and heard by me. And now I get to release it into the world, where everyones eyes are critics. I really do hope you enjoy it:)

OMG if you have not read this yet you need to go read it. Its amazing and and so different then anything I’ve ever read. My next favorite is Frozen tides which is the fourth book in the Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes. I love this series because not only is it full of drama and adventure but it also has fantasy elements. Lastly my favorite book of 2016 has to be It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover.

The ability to time travel. Equality rights for all. And as cliche as it sounds world peace.

It depends what type of mood I’m in, but I think my all time favorites have been fantasy.

Late nights and Dance parties.

Hey everyone! So boy has this week been a bit hectic. Its basically been me trying to get my life together. Somewhere between the end of winter break and right now, it’s like school and my extracurriculars have broken me into tiny little pieces. Not necessarily in a bad or sad way but more of like I’m trying to find the exit out of a maze way.

Sometimes it feels as if my life is just a series of tests. I had a AP world history test yesterday and I have a Pre-calculus test today that I know is going to be extremely hard. Honestly it’s amazing how much information my brain can store. But it also stores the randomest things ever.

(And yes I know randomest is not a word, but we’ll just pretend it is)

For example: I know all the lyrics to a song from 2010 but I can’t even remember a single math equation.

At school you’ll probably catch me singing a song from the early 2000s. I don’t know why but the recent music on the radio just doesn’t make me as happy as throwback songs. Play a song by bands like maroon 5 and I’m a goner.

So all this studying for my exams has resulted in many late nights. Trying to stay up late to study for a test is a bit challenging but with the right steps you can become a pro.

I think the most important thing to do while your studying is to take breaks. You need to be able to give yourself and your brain a quick rest.


Yes, you read that right. Having dance parties in my room while studying is the key to staying awake. Take a cup of coffee, turn up your speaker (but not too loud that your family complains) and dance like nobody’s watching.

Actual representation of me:jltomwymi0vro

I think by the time you’ve had a nice cup of coffee and a few dance parties (A LOT), you’ll be jumping of the walls for the rest of the night.

The worst part about late night studying though, is having to wake up in the morning. It takes my mom about 15 minutes to try to get me out of bed. And let me just say that I am not a morning person AT ALL.

My mornings consist of me looking and felling like a zombie for the rest of the day. I try my best to not look like a zombie, but what can you do? I’m so lazy in the morning that most of the time I don’t even brush my hair.

Anyways I hope that all of you have an amazing weekend and dance until your completely out of breath. Honestly dancing is the solution to all my problems.

And food of course.

See you soon,

The Blogger Recognition Award

Hello wonderful people of the interwebs!

So, 2 awards in one week? I know it’s crazy, I’m shocked myself that anybody would nominate me for any awards. But as always thank you to the duo that did nominate me. Arya and Shruti from The Indian Avaaz for the nomination! Please if you haven’t checked out their blog, go check it out! Now onto the the award…


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Write a post to show your award
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award
  6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.

How did my blog start?

Cancelled plans. A group of me and my friends were supposed to hangout one Saturday night but some people couldn’t come. So I was left to spend my Saturday night alone, binge watching about almost every show on Netflix and reading books. I came across a story on Wattpad called The Anon about a girl who has a secret blog and she basically documents her life through it. To me this sounded like such a great idea because sometimes I feel like I have so much to say but no-one to say it to. And with this idea in my mind, I logged on to the internet and instantaneously made a blog without having previous knowledge or reading a blog prior to that. It all happened so fast that before I could process what was happening, I had one follower. An amazing start to what I hope is an amazing journey.

Advice for new bloggers:

1. Be yourself. Yes I know this might sound cheesy and overused but it’s true. Nobody wants a replica of another blog. If your going to make a blog, you need to have your own voice. Your own style. Be true not only to yourself but to other’s as well.

2. Interaction is key. Follow blogs that you can connect with. If you’ve come across a blog that you love, give it some love. I’m 100% sure the blogger will be incredibly happy and it helps form a bond between the two of you. You can’t make friends by just sitting there and waiting for something to happen. You need to break out of your comfort zone to make friends.


My Nominations…(I’m a bit lazy, so theres only going to be 5 nominations sorry)

An Open Letter to my Ex-Bestfriend

It’s weird.

Being alive is weird.

I have these moments where I forget who I am for a single second. Then I remember and I’m back to the reality, pretending like every thing is okay when it’s not.

I don’t really understand people all that well.

To be honest most people are a complete mystery to me. You think you really know someone but one day something happens and they change. Or maybe they were always like that and you just decided to ignore that side of them. We always tend to forget that most people are too afraid to show their real self. Covered away by all the lies and the makeup they put on. They put on a facade and show you only the acceptable parts of themselves. The part they think you want to see.

Is that what you did?

Did you think I wouldn’t notice when you changed, when you stopped talking to me as much as we used to. When you cancelled our plans because you suddenly weren’t feeling good. I mean we had been friends for 10 years, why wouldn’t I have noticed the side of you that thought that I was pathetic.


For clinging onto you when you let go of me months before. For thinking we still had a chance to fix an unfixable friendship.

When was the moment that you decided you were so much better than me?

When I wouldn’t be enough. When I wasn’t as cool and as popular as the kids at our school. I wasn’t rich but sometimes I tried to be. I tried to pretend just to keep up with you. But what does it matter anyway, you’re not my friend anymore.

It’s kind of blurry.

The moments that led up to and after the breaking of our friendship. I still ask myself why you did what you did. One thing I do remember is the moment I realized your true colors had come out to play. At lunch you would laugh at me, ignore me, talk about me behind my back and I let you. Cause to me, a friendship that had started so many years ago, deserved a chance to be saved.

I see you in the hallways almost everyday.

For a moment our eyes pass over each other and then we continue along our way. Pretending our friendship had never existed and we were only strangers to begin with.

I needed to do this, to write this.

I needed to let go of my hidden demons and face the fact that your not here anymore. The spot reserved for you is gone and now filled with people I never dreamed would be here to pick me up.

So alas this is a goodbye.

Pet Peeves.

Hello wonderful people of the interwebs! Okay so lately I’ve been thinking of the many things that drives me nuts, like really crazy. These are the things that get under my skin and decide to make my day go from worse to bad. Okay maybe I’m over exaggerating a little bit but we all have pet peeves, whether we’d like to admit it or not. So without further ado I present my biggest pet peeves!

  1. People who walk slowly.xt5lmpcaakkiozwgsw

    Maybe this is just for me, since typically I’m a really fast walker but the worst thing about these slow walkers is that they don’t even move to one side to let other people pass. They’ll just hog up the whole sidewalk and make you late to your next destination.

  2. When people copy your work.


So this doesn’t happen all the time but it sure makes me really mad. Like I worked really hard on my assignment and you think that its okay to use my work? People can take inspiration or maybe ask me for help but to downright just copy my answers or assignment, I will not put up with that.

3. When people get into a relationship and after about a week they say their in love and blah, blah, blah.


To me love is special and you should wait for the right time or the right person to say I love you to. I’m not saying I believe in soulmates or anything like that but love should mean something powerful and vulnerable. To just spit out the word is a little crazy to me.

4. When people indirectly call you out.


This one is directed towards my teachers mostly. Like I know that I did something wrong or I messed up on an assignment but why do you have to be all shady and indirectly call me out in front of the whole class. She’ll say it like she’s talking to the whole class but she’ll be looking at me specifically when she says talking.

5.  When someone walks into your room and forgets to close the door on their way out.


NO! This is probably the one that annoys me the most. You know, I would be relaxing in my room, watching TV and all of a sudden someone walks in. They leave and forget to close the door. Or the door doesn’t close all the way shut. Now I have to get up from my very comfortable cocoon and close the door.

6. People who are late.

I love my mom very much but sometimes (a lot of the times) she can be really late. She says that she’ll be here in 10 minutes and then about 30 minutes pass and she’s still not there.

7. People who try to talk to you when your wearing headphones.

I know this one might sound a little extreme but it happens. I’m not saying that you should not talk to me but its makes me mad when the person trying to talk to me gets mad at me for not listening them because I’m wearing headphones. Or when someone specifically tries to talk to you just as you put in your headphones in to relax.

8. Public displays of affection.


Please respect, that’s all I’m asking for. I don’t have a problem with a kiss or holding hands but when your standing right next to someone and you start to make out that is totally unacceptable. Honestly it makes me feel a little weirded out.

Anyways I’ve hoped you’ve enjoyed this and definitely tell me some of your pet peeves down below,

Math + Me = completely lost

Hello wonderful people of the interwebs!

Life update:

Yesterday (Tuesday).

Pre-calculus is horrific, let me tell you. Now I won’t say that I’m completely lost in math class but yesterday it sure felt like it. I had a quiz that I’m 100% sure I failed. Usually I understand math to some degree but it was like my mind was blank. Honestly I think its time to invest in a math tutor or maybe stop watching so many Netflix shows and get some work done :0

Also, yesterday I had my first interview EVER for a volunteer position at the hospital. On my way there I was literally so nervous that I almost asked my mom to turn the car around and take me home.


I really had nothing to worry about since the ladies were extremely nice. The interview was short and straight to the point, and once it was over I felt the weight on my shoulders subside.

I got the job! Once I got into the car I could not stop smiling. I was jumping in my seat on the ride back home. The only bad part about the interview was that afterwards if you got the position you had to get the flu shot. It’s purely a safety precaution but I absolutely loathe shots. Especially the after effects of getting a shot. My arm hurts for about a day and I feel completely useless and lazy.

So today (Wednesday) was a great day because:

1. I was nominated for 2 blog awards, which is so surreal


Thank you to everyone who took a chance on this blog and takes the time to read it. It makes me happy to share my life and be honest with such an amazing community. I never imagined that anyone other than my best friends would read it but you clicked on my blog and that means the world to me 🙂

Anyways I hope your week is going great and you enjoyed this update,

The Rant Girl
