If you have not already read her blog, check it out here:
But what I really was planning on posting about was my craving for a new pair of jeans. Some days, you just want a new pair of jeans to spice up your life. I am awaiting a new pair so I can throw out about 2 or 3 that I don't ever wear.
I searched online all night long for destroyed boyfriend denim that was inexpensive. Can you believe people are willing to spend $185 on a pair of jeans? No thank you. I'm thinking $40 maximum.
Alas, I can't find any that fit my style.. Whatever that is. But I did find these this morning. They may not be as destroyed as I like them, but a few days in the wilderness can change that. And yeah.. They're in the boys section. But that's what I'm looking for!
Hollister + Alexandra = Weird. But they are cute, so there we go. And on clearance for $40! But I only have $75 in my bank account until my next paycheck.
Feeling financially secure > Denim.
Woe is me.

The Html is not available no matter what computer I use.
The autosave isn't working
One of my blogs messed up the little comment links below every blog I post, and now they are bright blue.
This is all very frustrating because I have a blog I want to post with lots of pictures and stuff, but can't because of my technical difficulties =[
So keep checking up on this... Hopefully I'll have it fixed soon.
Or if you could help me fix these problems that would be brilliant!

We would also like to point out how retarded you are because you bought Volume 1 of your history book when you were supposed to buy Volume 2. Now you can't do your homework that is due tomorrow. You will have to pay another $100 or so for this new book, and since you bought the loose leaf Volume 1, it is basically worthless and can't be exchanged for like anything.
Just reminding you, if you fail this or any class this semester, we will kick you out of Sierra for at least a semester, and will have to petition your way back in.
Best of luck,

Dear Alexandra Seal,
Congratulations on your sixth month with your boyfriend today! In honor of this glorious occasion, we are letting you know you are now on academic suspension for the next year and a half. You should drop a class you are now in, preferably ceramics, the class you chose to take instead of a yet another difficult class, to prevent you from getting stressed out.
Instead you can take a class intended for fellow retarded students who failed a class last semester, because you obviously have some learning to do. In this class you will learn how to properly manage your time and how to generally not fail at life.
We thought that your life is going so smoothly right now with losing your Saturday night shift at work, and the fact you are in dire need of 1. a new phone, 2. a new bedroom door, 3. a new car and 4. possibly a new life if obtainable, not to mention you feeling completely useless and that you have lost far too many friends recently, that this would be really great for your self confidence and over all well being.
We also forgot to mention your crazy change in diet because soy and other processed foods have messed up your organs so badly. But don't blame us for that. Besides the fact that the Cabrillo Dental Hygiene program has a two year wait list and our counselors didn't tell you that, that just means you get to stay here even longer! More quality time between us, my greatly appreciated friend!
Sorry about the printer in the computer lab not working this morning, and that you were late to the class with the scariest teacher known to mankind. But good news! Along with all of this, we would also like to give you a ticket for your car for not having a valid permit visible.
Have a great day, oh and the parking violation needs to be paid within the next 21 days.

This morning for breakfast I had
1. Biscuits with REAL butter
2. All natural yogurt with fruit
3. Pom with lychee green tea
4. 3 Cod Live Oil pills.
Breakfast of champions.
My body better start working normally fast.
This diet is expensive.
(Not losing weight diet.
Fixing my organs and making me healthier diet.)
By the way, don't drink soy. Ever.
I will post a blog about this very soon.
I am feeling especially chipper today, and I'm not sure why. last night I had time to forget about my horrible week, so hopefully that night continues on to today. Let's hope for the best.

The Bahá'í House of Worship in Delhi, India, popularly known as the
As with all other Bahá'í houses of worship, the Lotus Temple is open to all regardless of religion, or any other distinction, as emphasized in Bahá'í texts. The Bahá'í laws emphasize that the spirit of the House of Worship be that it is a gathering place where people of all religions may worship God without denominational restrictions.

Indian lotus flower

The lotus flower is a representation of piousness and fertility. The lily flower in the Christian culture basically replaces the lotus flower. The lily flower according to the Christian culture is associated with Mary who is known as the queen of heaven.
I would love to visit the Lotus Temple in my lifetime. I think it is so wonderful that it is not exclusive to just one religion. Just a peace filled place where anyone can meditate and coexist. How beautiful is that?

Phil Wickham - Divine Romance
Maybe our universe is just a teensy explosion inside a jar of an alien, an infinite time bigger than us.
Maybe we are nothing at all.. and I have been dreaming this whole thing up.
Maybe God doesn't exist..
But at least I will die with life knowing I lived as if there was one.
And I will die knowing I lived a life that was faithful and loving,
where I tried my best.
I will have lived a life that was worthy to what our minds and souls have felt as God.
I will have practiced peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control.
I will have bettered the planet, and changed someone, if even just one person's, life.
Maybe God doesn't exist...
But I can't deny something that I see, feel, crave, and need every day of my life.
I have found my God and he is in no place in particular. He is all around me.
Not just in the place where I worship on Sundays,
or where I bend my knees down to pray.
My God is all around me,
Through the trees of the forests I walk through,
and the roads that I drive on when I want to get lost.
My God is in the smile that greets me in the mornings on my way to class,
the tears that overwhelm me with the feeling of true beauty.
The drink that is so sweet to my lips,
and the warm food that fills my cold body after a long winter day.
The clothes that cover this oftentimes lifeless body.
He is all around me, like music in the wind and the freshness of water.
Sometimes I think, maybe God doesn't exist at all..
But something lives in my heart that is inaudibly beautiful.
Something that is unexplainable and leaves me dumbfounded most of the time.
But it is the power of peace and harmony which passes all understanding..
the power which is intertwined in every fiber of my being.

I want a change. I feel as though I am in a style rut. Every 6 months or so I get really tired of how I look.. Everything from hairstyle to earrings to makeup to clothes to shoes.
I am in that tired state right now...
Maybe dye? No... I'm trying to stay subtle for now, I don't want to do something too drastic. (Blondification of 2006)
Cut my hair? No no no. I am satisfied with my long hair. (Drastic cut of 2006)
I could burst out in colors again.. Although I looked like the ultimate high schooler. Possibly junior high schooler. (2006)
I could go back to daily scarves... But those are super in right now. (Spunkmaster Z of 2007)
Blech. So over matchy matchy. I was so baby. (2005?)
Earrings? Took my gauges out, again. Maybe I will start wearing my big earrings again. (Oct. 08)
Or I could at least start doing my hair pretty from time to time.. (Feb. 2008)
I feel like it was just last month that I felt completely awesome and somewhat stylish.. Wait.. I DID feel completely awesome and somewhat stylish last month! I need a change!
Must think of cool new awesome style or at least a new one that makes me feel unique and pretty!
I just bought some really cute flouncy clothes, lots of purples and blacks... Maybe movies and books will give me inspiration. I will update my fellow readers soon on my discoveries.
Cool Alexandra, 2007?
Flirty Alexandra, 2006
Military Alexandra, 2006
Funky Alexandra, 2007
I was so cute once.

I turned to her, and I really wish I could have remembered what I said in the dream, because it was epic. I stood up for my middle school self, telling her I was not the same girl but even then I was too good for them. As tension rised I could feel more and more eyes on me. No, not on me, on little 6th grade Alexandra with short hair, no boobs, and crooked teeth.
