Some Cool Stuff

I've been ordering things online like crazy.  It's unhealthy, I know.  But look!  Girl Scout patches!

All from Troopmore

Hey!  Is that the galaxy sweater (with some horrible yellow lighting) I posted about some months ago?  WHY YES IT IS!
As you can see, I'm using my iPhone a lot for pictures!  I guess that solves the problem of stealing my mom's camera.

Galaxy Sweater Review:

On the website, there's only one size available.  Usually for sweaters, I wear a size small for more fitted or medium for a looser look.  This sweater, if I pull it down a little, covers my buttocks.  By the way, I'm a little under 5'9".

I just love the pattern.  The galaxy print is pretty sharp and the colors are awesome.

The fabric is pretty thin.  It's definitely not for super cold weather unless you wear a couple layers under and over.  I expected the sweater to be made out of cotton, but it appears to be made out of some synthetic stuff, I'll update this post when I found out exactly what it's made of.

I ordered this sweater on September 30th.  The site said orders should be received in around 4 weeks after the payment.  Five weeks later, I didn't get anything in the mail so I emailed the guy on November 5th.  The guy said my sweater was shipped just the day before, and apologized for it being late.  He also threw in "a gift" because of the lateness.

I got the package some week or two ago (I think December 4th).  I found out the "gift" was a some sort of scarf with a very faded light blue/green/purple galaxy pattern.  I wouldn't really call it a scarf because it's pretty short, like only a yard and I could only fit it around my neck and let its ends hang like stubs.

Here is the site where I got my sweater:
That's my two cents!

Spending my last day as a 16 year old as a hermit...

Tomorrow I turn seventeen. 

God, sixteen was so fast.  Hardly anything happened.  I know when I'm older I'll look back on my teenage years and wish to be sixteen again, and curse myself because I didn't live my high school life to the fullest.

Ah... well... I only wish I could live my teenage years to the fullest since I'm basically an anti-social, introverted hermit.  I mean look at me now.  I'm spending my last night as a sixteen-year old doing APUSH homework and writing on a blog, for heaven's sake! #YOLO

Ahh TeChNoLoGy

Last night I got an iPhone 5 as an early birthday present. I'm using it right now to write this post.

I have so many feelings right now.

Mostly I feel grateful (thanks Mom and Dad!). But I also feel a little guilty. Do I deserve to have this? Do I really need it?

I'm still trying to get used to this device, because my last phone was a basic LG type of thing. I keep making typos and still am confused on all these settings. I am having fun with Siri, though.

I hope I don't come across as spoiled.... I'm just really overwhelmed with everything and still can't believe my parents got me an iPhone. Wow.

Now some questions for you guys: what are some of your favorite apps? What are the best phone covers?


PS This post probably took me 30 minutes to type out.
