$ENIOR Update Yo

you guys probably thought I'd fallen off the face of the earth or something. did you miss me? i certainly hope so, because I missed you. like for real. it seems like every time I actually post on here I'm apologizing for having not posted in a while, and this post is no different. but i'm back and better and badder than ever so there's that at least.

if you didn't know, i recently moved to colorado from kentucky. i'm technically only here for a year because i'm a senior in high school and then i'm off to the awesome life of college. i'm trying to have a super fun senior year because this is like the only year of high school that will be normal (i.e. i don't have to "drop out" of regular school and do stupid online school due to health issues).


senior year has been great so far. i thought being a new kid would be hard but it's been pretty easy. and i have friends. at least i think they're my friends so that's good ;)

here's five updates for you though because I know you've missed them

1. I'm taking AP Physics this year and I seriously suck at it. It's hard and it's not fun and I just hate it. I do like the people in my class (i.e. the nerdy boys) because they're funny so that's good at least.
2. I joined the Model United Nations club, Graphic Design club, and the Stage Craft club so I'm like this super combination of nerd, art freak, and theatre geek. It's awesome. I'm awesome (jokes)
3. I've been taking a lot of exercise classes lately including spin classes and I love them. I get so sweaty which is gross but then I feel so fit and fab when I'm done. It's great.
4. Right now I should actually be doing homework but I'm procrastinating like usual.
5. I haven't really had any embarrassing moments at school yet. This might not seem so out of the ordinary for the average human, but this is a HUGE deal for me. Awkward is just in my genes so I'm sure something will happen soon.

Alright chickadees, that's all for now. I hope you're having a fabulous time at your school.
Leave me a comment so I feel famous ;)

hot pink undies

whew! i haven’t posted on here in, well, forever. i sincerely apologize for the lack of chloe in your lives lately. i know it’s been hard, and you’ve been wondering when i’ll post like everyday, but i’m posting now so don’t hate me too much. my life has been a whirlwind of school. like i honestly don’t know my my brain hasn’t melted. sometimes i go to bed at night with brain aches (like a headache, but in the brain from excess school work). 

I actually had my first junior year meltdown the other day because i was super stressed about the combination of my school exams on top of my first SAT test on top of four AP exams. like what? so. many. important. life. altering. exams. ok that’s kind of an exaggeration, they’re not that life altering, and I most likely will survive, but stiiiillllll. ugh. 

but i have been keeping up with barre classes which is awesome. go chloe. i’ve managed to only have one embracing incident at class, and since this blog is a huge series of awkward moments, I guess i’ll share it with y’all…. here we go. 

so i’ve always been the kind of person that has a hard time buying expensive items that should be cheap. like leggings. i mean $80 for a pair of leggings from lululemon? really? i’ve had my lululemon leggings for like three years (and my mom bought them for me as a super nice gift) and i didn’t think there was anything wrong with them. sure, they were a little worn out due to years of use, but they really weren’t that bad. or so I thought. 

one day before class i didn’t have that much time to get ready so i had to leave on my undies from my previous non-workout outfit and then through on my leggings and leave. turns out i was wearing my super cute neon pink with white polka dot and lace edging victoria’s secret undies. i didn’t think anything of wearing this particular pair of underwear with this particular pair of leggings until I was in class and a lady across from me wouldn’t stop staring at my butt. like she could have burned me she was glaring so hard. during class i went into the bathroom to check myself out and make sure that i didn't like sit on a banana or something before class. while in the bathroom though, i realized that my hot pink undies were literally shining through my pants. i was so embarrassed that i didn’t think i would be able to go back into the workout room. i did though, because i’m not ashamed of my underwear and wanted to be nice and keep the lady across from me entertained. 

after i told my parents what happened in class my dad asked if I was traumatized (i was) and my mom asked if lululemon was open the next day (it was). all in all it’s not that bad. it’s not like i’m the first person to have see through leggings and i got two new pairs of killer leggings so who’s the real winner here? 

i am the real winner, thank you very much.

thanks for reading!! feel free to leave a comment so i feel popular. 
i’d love to hear about an embarrassing story of yours that happened recently (so you can get it off your chest, and i can have a good laugh and/or feel sympathetic towards you).

airport awkwardness

hey there lovely ladies 

it's good to be chatting over here, but if ya miss me then be sure to follow along on popcosmo there have been a ton of new awesome posts up lately so you don't want to miss out.

this past week my mom and i traveled to salt lake city utah to learn more about the new product that cricut is launching. let me fill you in, the cricut explore is going to be all the rage very soon. it basically makes your crafts for you with the click of the button. all you have to do is design your craft online or choose a preexisting craft. crazyy. it's revolutionary. 

so anyway, no trip occurs without something awkward happening to me. 
and by trip i mean me leaving the house. 

so you see where this is going.
yes. i got myself into an awkward situation in the airport. 

if you've traveled recently then you know a little something about TSA. basically the security line jumped in a time machine to the 1990s and you don't have to take your shoes off, take your laptop out, or do anything when you go through the human x-ray slash tube machine. 

well, my mom got lucky and got to go through TSA but i had to do the 2010's security line. 
i made it through the line without any awkward occurrences. I spent most of the wait trying to figure out how the guys in front of me got so tall. aka these things were going through my head for the 20 minutes of line waiting 
"are they human? how the heck are they so tall"
"they must be basketball players"
"wow their luggage is so fancy"

and then i made it to the security guard who checks your id and plane ticket. 
this is where the awkward starts to begin.
my mom handed me the wrong plane ticket before she went through her special security so when the man scanned my ticket his device thing made a scary noise and a big red x popped up. 
the man told me that i had the wrong ticket and i informed him that my mom had my other ticket. 
he asked where my mom was and i told him that she was past security because she had tsa.
he then told me that i needed to wait off to the side and have her bring it to me. 

at this moment i was so embarrassed and frazzled that i did not know how i would get my mom to come give me the right ticket. did i 
a. scream across the airport to her 
b. start crying 
c. text her

c seemed like the most logical thing to do although i have to admit, a few tears did form.
so then i texted my mom and told her to give a security guard my ticket to give to me.
i though my awkward experience was over and that i would get my ticket and be reunited with my mom.

but no. 
my mom gave my ticket to an almost deaf security guard. 
this security guard also didn't know how to read or pronounce the name "chloe"

i saw the security guard walking over with my ticket and tried to catch his attention but i failed to do so. this guy then started screaming (SCREAMING) 

i then raised my hand like an embarrassed kid and said i'm over here, but since he was deaf (i'm not being sarcastic about the deaf thing, my mom said that he told her that he had a hearing problem) he didn't hear me. so he continued to scream 
until everyone in line around me said 

not only was my name screamed across the whole airport but my name was given an awkward R at the end of it. 
*insert red face and teary eyes*

so there you have it. the most embarrassing airport story. 

ugh. what did i do in my previous life that makes me the main character of these stories?

do you have an embarrassing airport story?
or any embarrassing stories so i can feel better about myself?

thanks for reading!

what's crackalakin

hey there chickadees! 

so i was just stalking my blog (please tell me I'm not the only one that does it) and i just realized that i hadn't posted on my blog as a mature eighteen year old. so since i'm eighteen now, i figured i better share some sophisticated writing, because this blog is all about sophisticated writing. 

so the first thing that i thought to write was five updates on my life
because some things never change, even when you turn 18 

1. i've been looking into colleges more seriously and my top three schools as of now (keep in mind i'm a junior so my top schools will most likely change) are boston university, michigan university at ann harbor, and washington university. I'm also considering charleston university. 
2. i have three drafts sitting in my email inbox that are super exciting and potentially life changing. i'm being a tad dramatic, but i've been waiting to send them since christmas but my mom told me i had to be respectful and wait until after new years day. (i'm sending them tomorrow) 
3. school work is so annoying and i can't wait to be done with online school. i only started because of my health issues, and now that i'm feeling soooo much better i am having difficulties being stuck at home by myself and self motivating myself to do school work. i can't wait until my senior year at real school. woo. holler.
4. speaking of real school, this summer i'm planning on coming up with a bucket list so i can make sure to have a super awesome senior year! 
5. i'm really hungry right now so i'm going to go eat some left over clam chowder from whole foods. mmm doesn't that sound appetizing? 

share some updates with me via twitter or the comments section! 
i love hearing from you!

reflection (it's not as boring as it sounds)

I am turning 18 in two days. 
feel free to tweet me a happy birthday note, so i can feel super cool ;) 
18 is one of those milestone birthdays, and according to savannah or natalie (i swear I can't tell them apart) on the today show, milestone birthdays are years that you reflect. you look back on your past and see how far you have come and just take a moment to be proud of all the things you have accomplished. 
well, i'm going to kind of reflect on my past. 
and you're so lucky that i'm going to share my past with you. 
so... introducing a new series.
i am going to share an awkward story from each grade that i have been in on here. i have no idea how long these twelve posts will take, as i will only write when i feel like it. but i promise they will all happen. 

so. let's start with kindergarten. i like to think this is the year my awkwardness / unlucky events started. I lived in nashville, tennessee when I started kindergarten, and apparently my school did things a little weird because my parents weren't allowed to walk me into my classroom on the first day. my mom of course was a nervous wreck hoping that i would make it to my classroom in one piece, and i was kind of oblivious to the whole idea of walking by myself to my classroom. 
so here's how the day went down (to the best of my memory)
my thoughts are italicized 
6:00am - wake up super duper excited for my first day of real school. omg i'm going to be the coolest big kid in the whole school. everyone is going to want to be my friend. agh. 
6:02 - go into parents room and tell them how excited i am for big kid school. omg this is going to be the best day of my life. 
7:00 - eat a hearty breakfast of a nature bar and chocolate milk. mmm i love chocolate milk and i can't wait to go to real life big kid school. 
7:45 - drive to my first day of kindergarten. ok. i'm ready for this. i'm feeling a little bit nervous, but that will all go away once i walk in the door and strut my fabulous self to my cubby. 
8:00 - kiss parents goodbye. omg this is happening. omg. ok chloe settle down. you can do this. 
8:01 - hop out of car and walk through the huge doors. ok. this is awesome. i'm officially a cool big kid. wow. real school. kindergarten. i can't wait to learn how to read, and color in the lines, and learn to spell. this is going to be great. 
8:02 - get lost on the way into my classroom. wait a second. i forget which classroom is mine. ahh. why couldn't mommy and daddy help me find my classroom. big kid school is a little scarier than i thought. uh oh. no one is around what do i do? where do i go? there are so many doors to choose from. 
8:03 - have a mini self pity party with tears because my classroom still can't be located. ugh i really don't want to look like a cry baby but i can't find my classroom. waahh. 
8:10 - finally rescued by a teacher's aid and walked to my classroom. this is a little embarrassing. hopefully this incident doesn't tarnish my reputation. but my classroom is so pretty. wow so many cute boys. i can't wait to play with all of these toys. 

so moral of the story is that i got lost on my first day to kindergarden. i was a wreck, but it all worked out in the end. kind of a boring story, but i don't really remember it that well. i promise the stories will get better with time. also, they won't all be laid out in this format. 

i hope y'all like this new series. 
don't forget to tweet me on christmas day (aka my birthday) ;) @preppydiaries

did you have an awkward experience in kindergarten? i'd love to hear!
