My name is Sydney and I'm 16. PNW born and raised, but my heart is pretty much anywhere warm, especially down South. Rednecks are the best kind of people. I believe in God and the healing power of faith. Music and basketball are my passions. I hate the quiet, I'd much rather live loud and proud. I love food way to much, and I guess you could say I'm kind of a nerd?
My friend says I'm a pineapple. Because I'm hard and unpleasant on the outside, but if you work to get past that, I'm sweet on the inside. Pretty much sums it up.
Lifelong Potterhead, soul mates with Ed Sheeran, and mentally married Chris Hemworth and Andrew Garfield.

I logged on tonight hoping to see some posts about what is going on in Texas, hoping for some feminist fervor. Senator Wendy Davis stood for 13 HOURS to filibuster the abortion bill that was about to be passed. The vote was to pass the bill. However, it was taken illegally after midnight and has been THROWN OUT. Wendy Davis, I stood with you and I support you. America, look out. There's a revolution coming.
Here's to the CRAZY ONES. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble makers. The round heads in the square holes ~The ones who see things differently~ They're not fond of rules and they have >>NO RESPECT FOR THE STATUS QUO<< You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. The only thing you can't do is ignore them because THEY CHANGE THINGS. They PUSH THE HUMAN RACE FORWARD and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to change the world, are the ones who do. -Jack Kerouac
hey girls I need some advice... so there's this guy I like. but I've never talked to him. well I'm having this random burst of courage and I'm not sure how to start a conversation...should I comment on his instagram or actually say something tomorrow? any help??
Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like, jump-up-and-down-in-your-chair-can't-control-yourself love it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they're saying is "You like stuff" Which is not a good insult at all. Like, "You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness." -John Green nmf
me: so you are really ok with getting the accompaniment down tonight? Camden: yeah of course. I'll work all night I'll get it. me: *hugs him* thank youuu! you have no clue how much this will mean to my mom! thank you! him: no need to thank me. seeing you happy is all the thanks I need. i knew there was a reason i'm friends with this kid :D
dad: *sprays my brother with dog spray* brother: hey! what was that for! dad: it says "eliminates pests"... brother: ... mom: ... me: ... dog: ... dad: guess it doesn't work. it's even funnier cuz my dad never talks :P
my friend Autumn died last night of a brain anuerism. she was a close friend of mine in 8th and 9th grade but we grew apart a bit this year. I used to walk by her every day on my way to 4th period, and she's not there anymore. she was the sweetest girl I've ever met and she always encouraged everyone to chose their own path, to be themselves. she has left a mark on this community, this school, and many lives. she will not be forgotten. RIP Autumn Hastings 12/17/12
so I saw a quote earlier saying how many people die all over the world in tragic events and no one notices but everyone freaks out over what happened today. Here's what I have to say. My choir teacher's fiancé is from Israel. the other day when a man got pushed onto the subway in New York and everyone freaked out about it, he said this: everyone in America is so sheltered. in Israel, people get killed everyday and it becomes a part of your life and you deal with it. yeah it's sad but it happens and there's really nothing you can do about it. don't get me wrong, I'm praying for each of those families and I think what happened was horrible and inhumane. but really what can anyone do? some people are screwed up and end up hurting people but this happens all over the world and no one ever seems to care.
so my little brother sent me this after our loss last night: Even though you lost I am still proud of you. You did absolutely fantastic. Remember the first loss is always the toughest. Next game you are going to win. I no it. Well I don't but thats what my horse Tyrone says. Next game I want to see you stuff someone and break their face, but don't break it to bad because they are probably ugly and you don't want to make them even more ugly because then their parents will abandon them and we don't want that to happen. Remember I want blood not snot, not tears I want blood and a broken face and I know you want that too. Also what's wrong with coach Webb. He makes the dumbest decisions on who goes in with who. And can I have his email because you're not starting and that is not okay. You guys would have won if I was a little bit more enthusiastic. It was really weird I was sitting there quietly and mom was yelling. Don't worry I will make up for it next game by being extra loud. I will be so loud that you can't even hear yourself think and I will be decked out in orange and black and I will have a sign just for you. LOVE YA, GRUDGE MONKEY
just a vent... today: -got called bulimic then laughed at -was yelled at by my teammates...a lot -was half-tripped during the game, hurt my knee, was passed the ball twice and yelled at for never doing anything -realized I was replaced by my friend's boyfriend -was basically ignored by said "friend"
so I've decided to wait until after Christmas to kill myself. January 3rd, that's my new date. I decided to wait because I'm actually sort of excited about something right now- my brother and I are making a recording of us singing Baby It's Cold Outside for our mom for Christmas (it's her fav holiday song) and I want to see her reaction. so yah.
