day 13 - a letter to someone who has hurt you recently

At the risk of anyone I know seeing this, I think I will skip this challenge lol. As I am sure you know, bottling your feelings up inside is much healthier than expressing them lol.

Day four: seven things that cross your mind a lot.

  1. Where is my phone/keys/wallet/ipod... I pretty much lose everything a lot.
  2. I should probably go to sleep.
  3. OMG my hair looks HORRENDOUS today
  4. I'm bored, let's eat something.
  5. What day is it? (This only happens in the summer because I don't have a schedule)
  6. I cannot believe that there are only __ days before I move into residence
  7. You are an idiot. (This can be directed at myself or someone else)

What TV show do you wish would go off the air for good?

All of the Judge shows: Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown, Divorce Court. And also Jerry Springer.

Ask me anything

What TV show makes you laugh the loudest?

Probably The Office or Cougar Town

Ask me anything

Day 3 - eight ways to win your heart

Uggh, I hate to admit these types of things, but alright.
  1. Sense of humour is probably most important. I know that everyone says this but seriously I think that all girls love this in a guy. I really am not that funny of a person (most of the things that come out funny are mistakes or just me sounding stupid, I will admit this) but I love it when guys can make me laugh.
  2. You can not be rude! Like if you know me then you just know that I will bite your head off (not really, I will just hate you in an obvious way) if you are being a dick seriously. I just cannot stand it. If you are a genuinely nice person and respectful, you just can't go wrong.
  3. I have always found that I tend to like guys with nice smiles... and guys that use their smiles lol be happy!
  4. Do not lie to me, I will find out and then I will be more hurt than I would have been in the first place.
  5. I don't want to say "understand me" because it is rare that anyone does, I am complicated and confusing but just accept me as me.
  6. PDA and clingy-ness is a no go. I do want to spend time with you but not allllll the time, and PDA is gross. I may sound like a child saying this but seriously it grosses me out to see people shoving their tongues down each others' throats.
  7. Charm is good.
  8. Don't show off and be cocky, it is not attractive. And when you try to show off you usually end up making a fool of yourself :)
P.S. Brains are a good thing too!

day 12 - how you found out about Blogger and why you made one

I think that everyone knows about Blogger but I really had never been that interested in making one myself until this year. Really I had just gotten bored one day during the summer and I knew that my friend had made one so I did too. I realize how lame of an answer this is but it is the truth. I am actually surprised that I have kept up to date with the blog, just because I usually fail at this type of thing. I guess that the challenges for each day have really helped.

day 11 - another picture of you and your friends



This is a picture of my friend Jessica and I, we were on our way home from Wonderland with some other friends and completely hyped up on candy! It was right near the end of high school and just a day that I will remember because it was something that we all did together before high school ended and we are all moving on to the next "stages" of our lives and well I am going to miss the days of high school.

Day two: nine things about yourself.

Nine things about myself:
  1. I am going into University this year and as excited as I am, I think that I am more nervous.
  2. It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to "pack lightly" when going anywhere, you should see all of the boxes I have for moving into residence.
  3. My favourite colour is purple and it is also my brothers, this is something that we always "fight" about saying it was whoever's favourite colour first lol that and our favourite number, which is 7.
  4. The most important quality in a person, for me at least, is the ability to laugh at yourself and the opposite of being like uptight I guess. Life is to short not to have fun!
  5. One of my biggest pet peeves is when guys spit! I seriously just do not understand it, I mean one, it is disgusting, and two, WHY do you need to?!
  6. If I could go anywhere in the world, and money was not a factor, I would go to Australia. It is somewhere I have always wanted to go, even since I was a little kid.
  7. I am going to University to become a teacher and if things go as I plan them to now, I think that I will do my last year, which would be teachers' college, in Australia.
  8. I have to sleep with pillows all around me and my feet MUST be covered with blankets, it does not matter how hot it is.
  9. The colour that I wear the most is probably grey.
  10. I procrastinate a lot. This is not the only problem though, I also get distracted VERY easily, which also slows down any process even more.

Monday, August 30, 2010

Day one: ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.

  1. STOP PROCRASTINATING!
  2. I am going to miss you guys like crazy! You can seriously never be replaced :)
  3. You are going to regret being like this one day, then maybe you will change.
  4. I hope that I can forgive you at some point... for everything you do.
  5. I can't wait to meet you! I hope that we are friends.
  6. We have the best dance moves ever.
  7. Please refrain from crying on the sixth.
  8. Please don't break my shit on the sixth! Just don't touch anything! We DO NOT want another air conditioner being dropped out the window situation.
  9. I love you <3
  10. It could have been more.

day 09 - something you’re proud of in the past few days

I am proud of my BIFFLE, Kristen who went off to college today! She was the first one to leave out of my friends and now I know that if she can get through it, I can too... probably. I am also proud of Kristen and Lauren who made up... FINALLY! Lol, Lauren I know that you are going to kill me for that :P oh well.

I don't like the challenges lately, they are super boringggg!

day 08 - short term goals for this month and why

Short Term Goals for September:
- Make friends at UNIVERSITY
- Become involved at school
- Actually do the work that I need to for school so that it is not all rushed and I don't fail out!
- Buy a plant.
.
.
.
.
- Keep plant alive.


day 07 - a picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

I seriously have absolutely no idea what to write for this... so instead I am going to simply rant and whine about having to move out in NINE days!!!
As you know if you have been reading this really pointless blog that really I have come to accept that no one ACTUALLY reads, I am moving out and into my UNIVERSITY RESIDENCE on September 6th! So unlike most people who in this situation would probably already be packed and ready to go... I am not. In fact, I have not even started packing. My mom has brought home like a bajillion boxes for me to put all of my stuff in, but I just keep putting it off (it is that annoying habit I talked about a few days ago... PROCRASTINATION!).
I have bought everything though! I think that it is actually impossible for me to have forgot anything. My mom has been so funny, making lists upon lists of things that I would need since like January, and everything on those lists are bought... and sitting in my basement... waiting to be packed. Today I went shopping for some last minute clothes that I needed... well wanted, and I got lots of b-e-a-utiful stuff, including a new purse which I have been wanting forever! I don't know why but I am just really weird like that, I absolutely hate carrying around purses, and I didn't really have one that I loved until today anyways so that didn't really help. I just usually choose to carry my wallet or shove money in my pocket, that is why I usually forget to bring my cell phone places. I know my friends make fun of me for being such a boy like this... but really it is so just... in the way and a hassle to have to carry around a huge bag. But that is the end of that problem since I got a nice new one from h&m today!
Alright, I think that I am done with this blog for tonight... maybe I will actually do the challenge for tomorrow!

day 06 - favorite super hero and why

Alright, about a month ago I totally would have said Spiderman because I truly thought that he was the best. However, one night when I was bored a few weeks ago I decided to have a Spiderman movie marathon. Well, I was certainly disappointed to say the least. I guess I was a lot younger when I last watched these movies because truthfully I thought that they were just awful when I watched them again. Really! Everything is so fake and the effects are just funny, in my opinion at least.

But anyways, back to the actual topic of today. Now that I have come to the realization that the Spiderman movies are CRAP! I must change my mind and say that the best super heroes are "The Fantastic 4". I know that this is more than one but come on, they are a TEAM! Plus the movie is great and I love it! My favorite out of the four members is probably the Human Torch because he can fly... but then again I love Invisible Woman just because I totally wish that I could have her power. I just thought of this but she is totally the best one/ most valuable member because she can protect everyone at the same time with that shield thing. Okay she is simply the best. End of story!

day 05 - a picture of somewhere you’ve been to

The only places that I have been to outside of Canada are Mexico and Florida. Mexico was in grade eight, maybe nine, and then Florida was in grade four. At the time I didn't even have a digital camera lol so all I can give you (without pulling out a thousand photo albums) are pictures off of google. Enjoy! :P

day 04 - a habit that you wish you didn’t have

Okay I know that I have missed like 3 days but being on the internet at my dad's house is a big pain in the butt as it is dial-up and super slow half the time! The bad part to living in the country-ish area :P

Anyways, I will just start here with Day 04 of the 30 Day Challenge!
One habit that I have, and NEED to break, is procrastinating! I know that everyone does this sometimes but I am really bad for it. You have no idea how many nights I have stayed up until 4:00am and sometimes earlier, working on essays that are due the next day. I think that most of my problem is that I can still manage to get good marks on them so I don't feel the pressure to start working on it weeks before. BUT, I know that this will NOT fly in university, so I really do have to buckle down and get to work when I actually say that I am going to!

By the way, I just got my Orientation/ Introduction week schedule for university and FABER DRIVE is doing a concert! I am super excited! One of my friends has Lights preforming at her school, GO UNIVERSITY KIDS!

day 03 - a picture of you and your friends

Kristen, Rachel & Lauren (May 2010)


I'm at my dad's house for the weekend so a picture from May at our prom will have to do since I can't get the internet on my laptop! Anyways, this is me and my BESTIES, Kristen and Lauren on the way to prom, which was a great night and lots of fun. We went in a hummer limo with about 22 people in it so there was tons of music and laughing :) Blast and a half even before we had gotten to the actual prom!

day 02 - the meaning behind your tumblr name

Well, my Tumblr name is the same as my Blogger name: http://newtothis-rachel.tumblr.com/.
But anyways, the reason that I made this my name was because it is true. I am only eighteen and as of September there are going to be a lot of changes happening in my life. I have to move out and live on residence at the university that I am going to, and the experiences that I will be going through are all new to me. Just having to get ready to move out is new, buying what seems to be billions of dollars of new things, and packing up what I need from my room is simply driving me crazy. Don't get me wrong I really am excited to leave and start learning and living on my own, but I keep going through these phases where I think that I just cannot do it alone. I am sure that once I actually get to university I will totally love it, but until then I guess I will just have to worry about everything that could go wrong (but I know it won't, everything WILL work out for the best).
From my room at home, to something like this... is a little intimidating.

I never sleep.

Obviously this is not a good thing and is probably very unhealthy. However, while trying my hardest to fall asleep at night, and always failing, I get to hear the trains when they go by around 1am every ... morning. It is my favourite sound of all time. I just love it and I know that this is weird but I actually look forward to it. :)
