My Summer Bucket-List

SSSSSUUUUUMMMMMMEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE IT!

(actually, I don’t really know what my favorite season is…..is that a bad thing??)

Anyways, if you couldn’t tell by the title, I’m going to show you my summer bucket-list. Or, as I refer to it, my unrealistic-yet-realistic-plans-to-somewhat-accomplish-before-I-go-to-high-school list (I’ll stick to summer bucket-list for now….much easier to say). So let’s dive into the list! (get it? ‘dive in‘? summer swimming? hahahaha thank you thank you! I’m here all night!)

  1. READ!!! – I plan on reading a minimum of 15 books this summer (is 15 a good amount? I guess it’ll do).
  2. Do more water-sports – I already like to paddle-board and kayak. I would love to learn how to surf though.
  3. Go on a dessert excursion – I’ve mentioned before that I love desserts. The fact that many new cute, little, and unique dessert shops opened up by me makes me more eager about desserts!
  4. Go zip-lining – cause…..who wouldn’t???
  5. Fly – ok so this is one of those unrealistic ones BUT there are those planes that have periods of zero gravity when you are basically floating in mid air WHICH IS FLYING!!
  6. Make a difference in D.C. – I’m taking part in an advocacy summit where I promote women’s rights, girls’ education, and more topics relating to those ideas.
  7. Make a bullet journal – I’ve heard about so many people who made one and love it but whenever I try to make one, I give up. This time, I shall persist!
  8. Get Hamilton tickets – once again, unrealistic….BUT I AM NOT THROWING AWAY MY SHOT at Ham. tickets!!!!
  9. Run a long distance– I’m trying to work my way up to a half marathon (13.1 miles….I don’t know what I’m thinking…SERIOUSLY?!?!?). The only way to do that is to continue running!
  10. LAUGH!!! – something so simple yet very much needed after a long, stressful school year.

So those are my top ten from my bucket list! It’ll probably increase in time but I’m just going to go with the flow of the waves (waves? beach? summer? I LOVE MY AWKWARD, NOT RELEVANT COMMENTS!!!). Anyways, what’s on your summer bucket-list? Do you want to fly too? Or is it just me and my weirdness?

lots of love, Totally Rad 🙂

My *2nd* Attempt of Starting My Blog

Ummm don’t you have a blog already?

Yes, yes I do

Then why are you saying you are starting again?

Because I didn’t like how I started my blog

What do you mean you didn’t—

*reads 1st blog post*

Oh yeah, you do sound really cringey. You should really get that checked out by a doctor or–

OK I GET IT!!!!

congratulations, you just experienced the conversation that I have had with my brain for the past three or so days

Anyways, I’m Totally Rad….

the name’s rad. totally rad

hehehe.

….and this is my pretty rad blog.

I’m an anonymous 14 year old girl blogger. Never blogged before (your explanation for all the awkwardness) and it’s been two or three days and I still feel:

  • SCARED
  • EXCITED

Words to describe me:

weird, fan girl, crazy, somewhat interesting, always hungry (I love desserts), feminist, independent, and did I mention that I’m crazy??

Anyways, that was my attempt to welcome you to my blog without being too cringey or by being that awkward blogger that has no idea what to say

But aren’t you just describing yourself still?

SHUT UP BRAIN!!!

Well this post is still cringey cause who has conversations with their brain—

*mutes*

Well, I’ll try to come up with better content. If you have any suggestions on what you will like me to post, let me know!!

lots of love, Totally Rad 🙂

PS: I’ll probably change the color of my page cause..well…I feel like I’m blinding you with such a bright color lolll

 

My Body, My Rules

I decided to make this post because my body has been a bit of a topic and I feel like many teen girls have the same problem as me. It’s not that I don’t love my body because I do, I truly do. It’s just that I get comments that I have to adjust what I wear to what “fits me better” or from boys. I just want to let you know that:

  1. I am perfectly physically healthy

I mean, at one point a doctor told me that I am “perfectly healthy, but should maybe stay away from some things from eating”. This has always made me question “is something wrong with me? Am I not like the rest of my friends?”. And I have come to the conclusion that yes, I am different from my friends. You know why?

Because I am curvy.

And I am absolutely fine with that.

This, however, used to bother me a year or so ago. I used to cry because when I went to put on leggings, someone would tell me to try something else on because it “showed off my hips too much”. However, I just wanted to wear leggings to feel comfortable. Or, people would tell my mom to watch out for boys because of my body shape. Yes, I am a little bigger in some places and smaller in others (ex: my torso and my height…lol I’m pretty short). But now, I have come to a realization that I will never be like one of those models you see on the runways or in magazines. That is because I am unique.

And you are too.

I say wear what YOU want to wear because only YOU know what’s best for your body. EMBRACE your curves and your style of body because there’s only one of you in this big world of people. Love your body, whether it’s big, small, tall, short, medium, or whatever.     If you are healthy yet your body shape is different, you are normal. Even though people say “oh you’re not normal”, there is not a specific type of normal because everyone has different normals pertaining to themselves (wow…that’s a lot of normals in one sentence). And lastly, when someone tries to change your style or anything, just say:

My body, my rules.

lots of love, totally rad 🙂

PS: comment if you have been through this too or if you have any advice for those who still under appreciate themselves. I hope this helps many of you out there.

Who is “Totally Rad”???

Hi there! Aloha! Hola! Ni hao! Welcome to my little oasis from reality! If you can’t notice from my awkward greeting, this is my very first blog post….ever. My first thoughts:

  • scared
  • excited
  • nervous
  • even more excited
  • anxious
  • EXTREMELY EXCITED!!!

Even though I will be keeping this blog anonymously, I can promise that I will not be fake and will express my thoughts, feelings, and energy towards my blog (saying..well, typing, my blog feels weird). I can tell you that I am 14 years old (yes..I am a teen blogger). I guess I should tell you a little more about me by stating 14 facts. Here I go:

  1. I’m a teenage girl
  2. I’m from the US…specifically east coast
  3. I’m currently in the 8th grade (but school is ending in 2 weeks which means I will soon be a freshman…WHAT EVEN?!?!)
  4. If I could, I would spend all day watching I Love Lucy, binging on Netflix, and indulging in books
  5. If I could live in any era, it would be the 1920s aka the Jazz Age
  6. I love to travel
  7. and take pictures
  8. and bake
  9. and eat (lol is that even a hobby?)
  10. I’m a feminist (which I am probably going to post about later on…who knows)
  11. I like to be outside whether it’s skateboarding with friends or paddle-boarding at the beach
  12. I’m an independent young women….which I get from being an only child
  13. I’m a total geek and fangirl (AND I AM NOT ASHAMED OF IT!!!)
  14. I’m definitely an outside-of-the-box, non-basic girl who usually keeps herself to, well, herself

For now, I think those are the standard basics about me. I hope this blog will not only benefit myself but for all of you too. I don’t know whether hundreds of people will see this or only one person. I may post every day or a few times a week…I guess we’ll let fate decide!

PS: please* (emphasis on the ‘please’) comment on what you will like me to post about, advice, or just to say hi! Don’t be shy cause I will reply (hey..that rhymes!!)
