My Stubborn Teeth :: Part 1

So basically I have the worst teeth ever.  No joke.  If I were to post a picture of my teeth in elementary school, you'd think they were stalagmites or something.  Shudder. 

Here is the memory of the day I got 6 teeth pulled out because of overcrowding.  Mind you, I was in like sixth grade when I wrote this.

March 31, 2008

Ok so today, I went to go to the oral surgeon to get six teeth out.  Four were already grown out but two were actually embedded inside the gum!  I didn't want to go, but it was too late.  My mom  drove me to the beautiful red brick building.  A grassy lawn surrounded the building, and dogs frolicked about.  I nervously entered the office.

First, in the surgery room, they strapped me to the chair (so Iwont get away?!?!) then put that pressure thing that squeezes the arm, you know, like the ones you get when you're in the doctor's.   Then the assistant put a mask with laughing gas so I'll stay "calm".  I had to be sedated for the procedure, so the surgeon guy plunged this needleish shot on my arm.  He said it'll feel like a pinch...it did, but a very sharp one! I have a bandaid on my right arm to prove it! Anways, I jerked my arm, but luckily he didn't have to poke me again.

I looked up at the ceiling, the mask in my face and strapped to the chair.  I swear I could feel the shot flowing through my veins!  The lights above me started to sway and move.  And I blacked out.

Before I knew it, I heard the surgeon, Dr. Rainero, saying "Adrienne! It's all over!". UGGH!  I touched my cheek.  It was all PUFFY, and that stupid numbing thing was to blame! Furthermore, gauze was firmly stuck in my mouth, preventing my holes which used to be teeth, to bleed! 

I felt woozy and tired. the assistant helped me into this weird room with 2 beds. I saw another victim lying in a cot. The assistant put me in the other bed and said she'll be right back.  After a few minutes, my mom came in.  A wave of relieveness swept upon me. The assistant taught my mom how to fold the gauze and stick it in me. After that "lesson", I was put on a wheelchair and had a little ride to the parking lot.  I got in the car, and was grateful for that experience to be over and soon be in my home.

Best Websites Ever!

I spend way too much time on the internet...



Oh lord.  This website is the reason why I proscratinate so much!  You sign up, tell the website your interests, then hit the "Stumble" button.  It redirects you to some sort of glorious website that falls under one of your interests category.  So if one of my interests is "Fashion" or something, it'll lead me to an awesome blog I would have never known.  When I hit the Stumble button again, it'll direct me to another website.  If you like the page, then you hit the thumbs up button and it'll save the website for you!!!  I've found philosophy articles, photography tutorials, yummy recipes, photoshop tutorials, and reallllly good music.

You may have seen all of my credits to the fashion and street style pics are related to this blog.  Amazing photographer Phil Oh captures some of the best street outfits all around the globe.  He's got places like New York, Shang Hai, Sydney, Milan, Tokyo.... etc.  I can spend hours just flipping through all of pics!

The about box:  "Rookie is a website for teenage girls. With monthly-themed content, we update three times a day, five days a week, and are happy to offer you millions of bad puns. " 
Forget Seventeen and Teen Vogue.  This online magazine covers basically everything there is to teenage girldom.  The staff is awesome, their music recommendations are spot on, the DIY is fun and original, and the advice columns are actually helpful and address issues that no other teen magazine pays attention to!  Rookie's editor in chief is the always astounding and way mature Tavi Gevinson.

Warning:  cuteness overload!  This website is dedicated to puppies, with gazillions of puppy pics, you can't help but say "Awwww!"




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------







Um, this is pretty much my favorite DIY website ever.  Their stuff is totally professional looking, and are pretty dang easy to do!  Plus, they also post really cool designers, art stuff, and home decor things too.  My favorite DIY tutorials of their's is the gold collar tipsjewelled Miu Miu sneakers, and their wrap bracelets.

This is kind of the best blog ever.  Allie Brosh is so frickin hilarious, and her MS Paint drawings are boss.  They say the craziest people make the best blogs, and this is true with Hyperbole and a Half.  Her real golden posts are from the past years.  Luckily for you, she has conveniently linked them on the right side of her blog, so go check them out right now.  I guarantee ab-hurting, peeing-in-pants laughs, and going through her addicting posts one after another.. 

*I'm not sure if I can put her drawings here because of copyright stuff, so I'll be a chicken and won't.  You guys should check her out anyways because she is funny as hell.

The Muse :: My Math Teacher

It turns out teachers can teach us more than trigonometry, history, or the Freudian elements in Lord of the Flies.


The Geeky Math Teacher

 My trig teacher, for example, is teaching probability right now (like permutations and combinations.)  He gave us an example of his outfits.  His wife picks out all of his article's of clothing, pants, sweater, shirts, everything!  So she has it worked out that no matter what he picks out, it won't clash!  (As for the math component, he asked how many different outfits could he have if he has brown and blue pants and blah blah blah shirts and so on.)

Now, my teacher is a ~60 year old man who is very funny and a bit nerdy.  But, I realized that with a twist, you could actually imitate his outfits in a cute men-inspired way. 

For example, he wears a lot of plaid print.  On cold days, he'd wear a grey sweater over the print.  Simple sweaters paired with fun printed blouses underneath are key.  Here are lots and lots of plaid/mens-wear inspired outfits:


































I hope you don't have a headache.  And if you can't tell by now, I LOVE street style.  :)

Wistful Thinking :: Tweed

Okay, I'm seriously craving a tweed jacket a la Chanel.  BUT I don't want to look like a stinky-perfumed, cheek-pinching country club grandma.  I'm only 16 for god's sake!  And I live in a place where Uggs, giant Longchamp bags, and sweats are the norm.  All in one outfit.  Sigh.  I guess I have to start getting used to the fact that I shouldn't mind what other people think of me. But still, it's high school after all.  :\

Some of my favorite tweed outfits from an array of (actually only two) blogs:
