||back to school tag||

hello, hello! awhile back, loren tagged me for the back to school tag, and i finally decided to stop being lazy and do it. thanks for tagging me!



thank the person who tagged you

answer the questions

post new questions (or use the same ones)

tag as many people as you want.

wear something old, something borrowed, something new, and something blue. (i actually sort of followed this. i’m wearing my brother’s old school shirt, which has blue on it, so there’s the old, borrowed, and blue- and then for the new… *goes upstairs to put on new earrings* *realizes upstairs is too far*

don’t die. (and i’m sorry, but this made me crack up- i just had to add loren’s line in here: death is terrible for the complexion, dearie.)

now, the questions!

1) when’s your first day of school?

it was a while ago…august 16.

2) what do (and don’t) you look forward to about entering the realm of the dead? uh, i mean the learned?

haha. i guess i’m interested in seeing how what i’m learning now pays off towards a future career. aka proving my teachers wrong because, no i will not need to know what jimmy’s profit is if he sells forty apples for 70 cents each.

3) homeschooled, public schooled, or private schooled?

public schoollll.

4) what grade are you going into? (if you’re okay sharing)

i’m currently in 8th grade.

5) how many more years of torture do you have to endure learn?

*counts on fingers* 8, counting college. sigh.

6) what are your goals for this school year?

move up to team(the next level) in gymnastics. i’m the oldest one in my current gymnastics class and it feels so weird.

7) what’s your favorite season to school in? fall, winter, or spring?

honestly, they’re all terrible. but probably winter because NO GYM CLASS.

8) how is schooling going to effect your blogging?

as you can probably tell, i post a lot less during the school year because i have tons of homework, but i still do things on the weekends.

9) what’s your favorite school subject?

reading/writing. my teachers are always so nice and i read so many good books. or band, because MUSIC.

10) your least favorite?

ew, gym.

i usually don’t mind it, but this year is going to suck because the only sport i’m good at- soccer-is the ONLY ONE THAT WE’RE NOT DOING IN GYM CLASS THIS YEAR. i’m just going to be that girl who’s like, umm, gross, sports.

i caught the ball once (yes, only once) during a flag football game and i was so amazed that i just stood there, and then my teammates yelled, “RUN!” but i didn’t know where to go. sighhhh. future NFL star  right here, kids.

(after that game my friend told me it was painful to watch me play. XD)

11) what subject are you best at?

math or spanish. (but that’s only because spanish is easy.) people think i spend 5 hours studying spanish vocab lists, but in reality i don’t think i’ve ever touched those outside of when i’m required to at school.

12) what subject are you worst at?

i think my paragraph about gym sums that up…

13) what extra-curricular activities are you planning this year (if any)?

gymnastics, soccer, and track in the spring. i can’t WAIT.

14) how are you preparing for life/college this year (on a conscious level)?

i’m finding the volume of weird shapes, because that’s going to help me become an author.

jk, i’m not doing anything really.

15) do you play any sports in school?

yup, track.

16) is there any way that schooling is going to help your blogging endeavors? or how has it helped your blogging skillz in the past?

being good at reading and writing in school has always helped me be a good writer.

17) how much time a day is school going to take for you?

*counts on fingers again* about 7 hours.

18) are you looking forward to seeing friends more often during the school year?

yeah, i love my weirdos. ❤

19) are you dreading or looking forward to the event (or did you, if it’s already happened)?

i was just kind of “eh” about school this year. i definitely was not looking forward to the amount of homework.

20) what are you most looking forward to about school?


21) how are you planning to fit actual life in with your school schedule?

take a break from schoolwork sometimes, get things done on weekends.

22) what are your overall thoughts on school?

school’s fine. i can tolerate it. but i don’t like how everything follows a format and has to be the same way. when i try to be a good writer, i end up not following the “formula” the teacher has mandated and then i get points off. i don’t like writing with a formula because it makes everything seem so unnatural, and i end up spending more time getting the formula right that the actual writing has no meaning.

edit: i just realized that I forgot to tag people. 🤦🏻‍♀️i tag anyone currently wearing a ponytail.


my questions: (some of these are repeats because i’m lazy)

  1. do you also hate how everything has to follow a formula at school? 
  2. what’s your worst subject?
  3. which class do you currently have the highest grade/scores in?
  4. what’s your favorite part about school?
  5. what’s an everyday outfit choice for you for school? or do you have a uniform?
  6. how does school help you with blogging?
  7. have you ever been in the principal’s office/gotten in trouble at school?
  8. what’s something new that you want to do this year? 
  9. when is your last day of school?
  10. quick, you’re going to be late for first period! what time does your bell to start school ring? 
  11.  if you’re homeschooled, do you like it? and if you’re in public/private school, do you wish you were homeschooled?
  12. write an incredibly detailed essay about cows. GO!
  13. any extra-curricular activities?
  14. what about sports?
  15. you got a day off from school- yay! what do you do?
  16. what grade are you in/going in to?
  17. do you have a favorite teacher? if so, why?
  18. do you like to listen to music while you work or does it distract you?
  19. do you take the bus?
  20.  what are your thoughts on standardized testing?

love you all! have a wonderful day.



i know the world’s a broken bone, but melt your headaches, call it home. 


To the extroverts, social butterflies, and party animals…

In A Messy World


I don’t know how you do it.
I don’t know how you do it so flamboyantly
and seem like a total natural at it.
What’s your secret?
I wish I knew whether you’re just putting on an act or not.
If you are, wow, you’re doing it really well.
Even just watching you makes me feel exhausted.
I wish I knew your backstory;
whether you have always been a social butterfly,
or whether you have had to jump through countless hoops to get to where you are now.

Whatever your story, you have my admiration.

I’m here, in the background,
which you most likely haven’t noticed.
Or perhaps you have noticed me,
but you want to blend with your new-found mates
and continue to be the life of the party.

I had a friend like you – well, quite a few,
who notice me at first, but then become…

waterparks is a seriously underrated band

i blame you, loren.

please tell me why NONE OF MY BANDS make normal music videos, seriously. it’s a problem. i just watched one where the members of waterparks were dressed up as dogs, and then la devotee by panic! at the disco is a boy being lured into a lair and then being tortured.  anyway, we’re not here to talk about brendon urie.


waterparks is my new favorite band. (at least for the next 2 weeks, until i find a new band 😉 ) they’re seriously amazing.

here’s a list of songs you are required to should listen to by them:

stupid for you


21 questions

silver lining

gloom boys


(i swear my blog isn’t meant to be promoting emo bands. oooops.) 

i should sleep. tomorrow’s monday. wish me luck, i hope i don’t die of boredom in spanish.




raindrops on roses…

good afternoon, lovelies! i did some photography earlier this morning, and some of them came out pretty good, which i’m excited about. 🙂

oh! also, we have to do auditions for band to see where we sit, and i got 4th chair! i now play 1st clarinet, the hardest part, and i made a pretty big jump. considering the fact that i thought i was going to fail, i’m happy. 😉
have a wonderful day.

::room tour::

over the summer, i re did my room!! it used to be pink and purple (insert shudder here), and now it’s…..

i love it so much! it’s perfect for summer because it’s so bright and pastel-y, but it’s also great for winter because of all the blue and white. It’s really bright and I’m obsessed with the color. I’ve been wanting to do a room tour FOREVER, and since I actually decided to clean for once,  I thought, why not?

So this is what’s on my bedside table: Glasses case, solution to clean glasses, polaroids, tiny wallet, pencil (one that matches my room, may i add?? my life is so put together.) , clock, phone charger, and fan remote. Keep in mind, this is what it looks like when I clean. When I don’t, there’s books everywhere.

Here’s my bookshelf. The top shelf has all my favorite books lined up in rainbow order, and then under it is polaroid camera film, paintbrushes, a sketchbook, a bin full of Bath & Body Works stuff, and tons of paper.

There’s another shelf under that, but it’s also not in the picture, because, well…it is literally impossible to clean. I need everything on that shelf- yes, even the mandala coloring books I haven’t opened since last summer. That’s also where my paint/stickers/general art arsenal is.

Finally, here’s my desk. This is also almost never clean (I’m an artist! I’m messy!), but on it is a mirror, a Harry Potter notebook, an empty Sephora bag, A REALLY CUTE PINEAPPLE, two jars with tiny pebbles and fake flowers in them, earrings, a giant pink clothespin (that holds a photo of me and my best friend), a letter R that I painted, a succulent, my perpetually dirty glasses, perfume, and my makeup. Above my desk is a sign that says ‘You’re the pineapple of my eye’. If you can’t tell, I kind of have a pineapple obsession theme.


There’s not much on this side of my room, just this cute box-thing and sometimes this bear’s on top of it. On the other side of my bed is my messy closet and aforementioned bedside table. 🙂

That’s it! Thanks for reading.

-Rutvi ♥
