The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Alice in Wonderland
Get ready for a rant, because it’s a-coming!
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a good book, don’t get me wrong. But the fact that people are getting tattoos of ‘and in that moment, I swear we were infinite’ is not very smart, nor is it original.
And I don’t understand the like/hype of Alice in Wonderland. It seriously isn’t that awesome. Now Tim Burton’s version is out and people are going apeshit about it again. Tim Burton just seems like a sell out nowadays with Alice being 3-D and fucking Johnny Depp practically the main character. It’s just annoying.
I know what Tattoo I'm getting for my 18th/graduation!
It’s going to be a fox, but in a patronus style with white ink on my wrist.(white ink to make it less noticeable and true to a patronus, though they are described as silvery) I thought of how much I love Harry Potter while I was reading the scene in The Deathly Hallows when the doe patronus leads Harry to the sword of Gryffindor. I thought, that would be bad ass to get a patronus tattoo and what my patronus would be and it hit me, that’s what I’m getting.
I told my mom about it and she was like,”you love Harry Potter now, at 17.” But I will love Harry Potter until I die, it has taught me more about life than any other book I’ve read so far.
as much as I would like to stay a kid my whole life, like Sir Peter Pan, I’m so excited to live in my own apartment and earn my own living and go out whenever I want. I want to be able to decorate my own apartment, stay wherever I want. Sit around and watch t.v. all night if I want to and live with the consequences.
During the summer, everytime I thought of college my heart would race and my stomach would twist with nervousness. (I have found several rantings in my notebook about it, trust me)I even broke out in tears once because I had no idea what the hell I was gonna go to school for, or what I wanted to do. I never understood how Seniors were just ready to go to college. How did they now? I would ask myself over and over again, but now I think I know the answer:
They grew up.
Even looking back at myself last year, two years ago, I have changed so much for the better. I look at freshman and look at their problems and laugh because they are obsessing over a boy (and yes, I do that too.) Thinking about how they are now, and how I used to be, I smile because unlike my dillema during the summer; I’ve figured out what I want to do with my life and thats just to live.
