If you were to look on the outside of all the people, everything is normal. But I always wonder whats on the inside.
the inside. . . is chaotic, messy, and imperfect. but it's also magical and full of crazy awesome things and love and creativity. the inside, is flawed, but it's beautiful too.

Purple, I've always known it to be a royal color and I find it very elegant.
2 days ago
Purple! Since I was little and made up the rebellious chant 'purple rules, pink stinks' I've always
loved the color (obviously I appreciate the other colors now :) Lavender, violets, royal color and an extra lucky color on the rainbow :)
2 days ago
Blue! I find it really soothing, and i like all shades of it, for different reasons.
2 days ago
Orange, because it reminds me of summer, and light or teal blue because it reminds me of the ocean.

SDJ 4.7.20
- Went outside and talked to my friend on the phone for a good two hours- it made my week.
- Tried to make loaves of honey bread
- Attempted to be productive and wrote four words in an essay due tomorrow. Oops.
- Tried to eat the bread
- Worked on a few songs and actually enjoyed focusing my energy on music for a few days. Might as well focus on the things I can control
- Threw out the loaves of bread because they were secretly hockey pucks
Social Distancing Journal - 04/07/2020
- I wanna go to sleep and wake up when this is all over
- my mom ordered bagels from Panera
- I want bagels
- I'm gonna live on bagels, hot chocolate, and pasta
- my outfits are all dresses now because I'm too lazy to match two pieces of clothing
- I'm developing a small amount of stress acne
- my hair is starting to get shaggy
- I don't think I trust my mom to cut it
- I think my bagels are here
breathe, things will get better. just let your thoughts, and emotions flow into the words you love so much, and take a moment, what makes you happy?

(Stolen from Treblemaker, looked like fun) :)

Random questionnaire:

1) How are you doing?
2) What is the strangest thing on your bucket list?
3) What made you you smile today?
4) What's the most rebellious thing you have ever done?
5) Do you speak any foreign languages? (even if it's a little bit)
6) If you could go anywhere in the world right now where would you go?
7) Did you notice what happened in question 3?
Show all 9 comments
1) Pretty okay, my face is still flushed from confessing my crush to someone over two hours ago.
2) Don't really have one, but I guess the weirdest thing would be try to kiss Johnny Depp, and yes, I know he's 56.
3) A video of a WW2 Vet dancing to Can't Stop the Feeling.
4) Hmm. haven't had too many good opportunities to rebel yet. But probably finding a way to hack into my iPad when I was eleven when my parents locked me out.
5) Some Spanish, a good bit of French, I want to learn Russian.
6) An open Broadway theatre, where I would stay until I died, watching all the musicals ever!
7) I actually had to read the sentence over four times before I noticed.
04/06/2020 - 8:00pm
~first off, flattered that u stole my treble questionnaire :D
1) I'm hanging in there
2) to go up to a random person and hand them a briefcase and say 'you know what to do' and walk away
3) Being outside and sunshine!
4) Go exploring in a theater after being told not to... it was really cool tho so no regrets there.
5) A bit of German
6) skiing, because I've never been and really want to go
7) *reads sentence 8 time* nope. OH. found it XD
04/06/2020 - 8:19pm
1) god i don't know. i'm having one of those days where i honestly can't identify a single emotion i'm having. there's definitely things going on, but i sure don't know what they are.
2) i don't really have a bucket list but i'd like to learn how to talk to people one day, and i think most people already know that.
3) earlier today i looked out and i saw the neighbor's cat stretched out in the sun on our back deck. that made me smile.
4) probably my routine violation of my school's cell phone policy. you can get away with a lot of things if teachers think you're a 'good kid'.
5) i speak a fair amount of french. i was supposed to spend four weeks in switzerland in this coming fall, but obviously that's cancelled now.
6) i really want to go back to ireland. we stayed with this old couple the last time we were there who had quite possibly the nicest kitchen i've ever been in and i miss it every day.
7) nope. i had to read it over a lot before catching on.
04/06/2020 - 10:03pm
1) okay. Not really feeling anything.
2) It sounds weird but I’ve always thought it would be fun to have a ton of kids.
3) well it’s the morning so today hasn’t happened yet, but yesterday I FaceTimed with my friends and that was nice.
4) Nothing. Probably played video games with my friend without asking my mom first.
5) A tiny bit of French. Even less Spanish. But I’m kind of proud of myself, I can conjugate -er, -ir, and -re verbs now in French.
6) To my home away from home, Sullivan’s Island in South Carolina. I miss it so much and we were supposed to go next week. :(
7) nope, not until I read this question. I’m disappointed in myself
2 days ago
1) tired, bored, and sad
2) I don't really have a bucket list, but I do want to go on a spontaneous road trip with my best friends
3) it's still early but I'm listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and the funny bits make me smile
4) I once downloaded a game on my phone without asking my mom, I deleted it quickly afterward
5) I can say "hello" in French ("bonjour") but that's it
6) my cousin's house, I can't visit her because she's in New York
7) nope, I read it about 20 times before I noticed it

-my teacher didn't show up for class
-facetimed with my friends it was actually pretty fun
-my teacher told us he was sick and that was why he missed class
-thought that was strange
-postponed my homework foreveeerrrrrrrr
-still haven't done my homework and I just really don't want to
-today was lazy
quarantine has turned me into someone who communicates with my friends exclusively through sending them photos of my pets. i'm not sure how to feel about this development.
Watch bloopers for news channels on youtube. There's some really funny ones, and if you don't laugh or at least smile for some of them, I don't know what to say.
Those are hilarious! I had a phase where my family and I would watch them every night a couple of years ago. They are very entertaining!

i'm having a really hard time sleeping lately, i don't know if it's the stress, over consumption of chocolate before bed, loneliness, or some combination of those, but if anybody has any suggestions that would be great. the other night i was up till three thirty am.

melatonin is a good way to reset your sleep schedule if you can get your hands on it. if stress is the issue then things like meditation and stuff can help.
04/05/2020 - 9:51pm
ok, thanks i'll look into that
04/05/2020 - 9:51pm
ehh it sucks when you want to sleep, but can't I'm having that issue too :/ Try having a set bedtime routine,
and for your body to got to bed around the same time each night, (my goal is 12 but im stilling working on it), turn of screens a half hour before bed too. Try the sun salutation or another short yoga video, and then curl up with a comforting book- nothing with cliff hangers so u don't stay up reading it. Also if you are up- try writing/journaling your feelings.
Maybe there is something bothering you on a sub conscious level that needs to be mulled over and put to rest Hope this helps a bit :)
04/05/2020 - 10:04pm
listen to quite music or maybe a lulaby... wait are those the same thing?
04/06/2020 - 8:31am
I've been having trouble falling asleep too. What helps me is to read awhile before going to bed or reading in bed... it helps me relax. Sometimes having a face mask actually helps, not being to open my eyes makes my body feel sleepier. Taking a bath an hour or so before bed sometimes helps me, adding salts or essential oils are also a nice touch. Tea might work too. I hope these ideas help in some way and that you find yourself in peaceful dreams. :)
04/06/2020 - 9:06am
thank you guys so much! i really appreciate all the help you've given me here!
04/06/2020 - 9:34am
Hey I don't know if your a cat person, but if you can get your hands on a furry god, or just a audio track of cats purring, that helps me get to sleep. Also, is very good for calming down if your stressed out.
