Think 'bout Thursday: Feeling... Strange?

Teenagers experience angst at one point or another. Sometimes, we feel like we can't escape the town we grow up in. We all feel out of place, and we all share that gut wrenching feeling of loneliness at some point. Be not afraid! Feeling stuck is not something to burden yourself with.
Put it this way: only about 18 years of your life will be spent in your town. It's kind of sad to think about, isn't it? Everyone feels like their teenage years last forever, but it really is only a moment in time. Be grateful for the few treasured memories made in your awful town!
I found an online web series that perfectly describes being an outcast in your town:

Remember: Nothing lasts forever.

Sitback Sunday: Cheap Budget Stores

Below, you will see two pictures I've taken from 2 online stores.
Can you tell the difference between these two shirts (other than color)?:

Boy shirt in orange plaid    
The one on the top is from Old Navy and the one on the bottom is from J. Crew.
The one on the top is $14 while the one on the bottom is $88.

Finding good deals can be hard, if you have no direction. After many mistakes, I have found a handful of stores to be the best place to look for if you want a good deal.

1. Marshall's/TJ Maxx
In my class, I'm known as the Marshall's girl. That's how often I shop at these stores. I combined these stores Overall, they're a really good store to buy name brands for cheap. You see American Eagle logos all over the store... if you're into brands like that. I would say that it's a pretty risky store. It's usually a hit or a miss.

2. Belk ONLINE
This store is a store found in the south, so northerners.... just skip this one. I say online because there is a better selection found online. I only go there for shoes, because I'm not a big fan of their clothing selection. But their shoes..... Heaven. Comparing their clearance shoes with the other stores is pretty fun because Belk's prices are ALWAYS lower whenever I check. Their selection is really nice, especially in between seasons.

3. Gap
Gap is like a J. Crew, but cheaper. Their clothes are good quality, and the clearance sections are where you should look for your clothes. I would say that you should only check in here in between seasons though to buy the really good stuff.

4. Old Navy 
Cheap closet basics. The end.

5. Target
Target has a lot of trendy pieces for a cheap price! I would say it's a little more on the expensive side, but their clothing selection is hard to resist! Every week I feel like they're pairing up with a top-of-the-line fashion designer (ex. Neiman Marcus) to create stellar pieces. They're strongest selection is the bags. They make some of the best fashionable bags and are easy to match with whatever outfit you're wearing!

That's all I have for now, but I haven't forgotten about the amazing thrift stores out there! That subject needs a post in itself. 
'Til next time!

Spontaneous Saturday

Words You Might Not Have Known

It is the spot in between your eyebrows.  If you apply pressure there it can relieve headaches.


Otherwise known as the infinity sign.  Sounds like a spell from Harry Potter.

The Cardboard that wraps around a cup of coffee so that you don't burn yourself.  The opposite of a scarf.


How you feel after hearing some awesome music!

An Awkward Conversation...

Rabidplaybunny87: Okay, so my neighbors officially hate me
GarbageStan23: why?
Rabidplaybunny87: Well, me, david and andrew were having a bonfire in the backyard, and we were making s'mores and all... and suddenly we here sirens, and see a firetruck turn into the street in front of us.
Rabidplaybunny87: So we all went running to see what was up, and our neigbor's house was on fire!
GarbageStan23: oh shit!
Rabidplaybunny87: Yeah, and when we got there, the wife was crying into her husbands arms, and we were just kinda standing there, and then she saw us, and then like for 10 seconds, gave us the dirtiest look ever
Rabidplaybunny87: Turns out, we were still holding our sticks with marshmallows on it, watching the fire....
Rabidplaybunny87: talk about bad timing...

Fashion Friday: Loafers

I'm in love with loafers. They're probably my favorite type of shoe. They make you look fancy, but can be turned into a casual piece when styled correctly.
From G.H. Bass & Co.

They're such a versatile shoe! I have a pair of pink and black loafers myself. I use them EVERYWHERE I go. Seriously. I use them so often that my mom groans every time I put one of the two pairs on.

Here are some pictures I found on Pinterest, that may help you style them:
loafers   Cool ass hipster jumper; some kind of loafer; glasses.
loafers         Flashes of Style

Loafers for life.

Think About It Thursday

Interesting Facts About Anime

My favorite anime is Bleach.  Originally Tite Kubo had planned to make the main character Rukia Kuchiki.  The show was going to be called "Snipe" instead because everyone was going to use guns except for Rukia who would use a scythe.  Later Tite decided to use swords and he changed the name to "Bleach" because it was related to the color white that would contrast with their soulreaper outfits.

1) When the manga first began it was decided that Ash would use a Clefairy instead of a Pikachu.
2) One of the episodes of Poke'mon about Porygon had an episode with quick flashing colors that put over 600 Japanese kids in the hospital.
