The Taylor Swift Phenomenon

Taylor_Swift_-_1989or

I FREAKING LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT. IT’S REAL.

First, let’s establish something right off. It’s kind of not cool to be obsessed with Taylor Swift. It is (at least at my high school), however, cool to be on the spectrum of annoyance to hate when it comes to Taylor Swift.

It is also a thing that peer pressure is kind of hard to resist. So I am just kind of a mouse when it comes to people ragging on Taylor Swift. I keep my love inside.

And just saying, I’m kind of done with that. BECAUSE TAYLOR SWIFT IS AWESOME AND I LOVE HER.

Haters gonna hate. (Kudos if you get that reference.)

So. 1989 is awesome. Beyond phenomenal. The only thing I’m kind of upset about is that Style hasn’t become the huge sensation that “Blank Space” has. I think I went through a few days of only listening to “Style” over and over and over again. And over and over and over again. You get the idea?

Dear Taylor, will you pretty please make a music video for “Style”? Thanks.

I’ve been a huge Taylor Swift fan since Fearless came out. Last year the song “Fearless” became my theme song for the year because it was all about me being on top of the world, something that I really think happened last year.

I was listening to National Public Radio (okay, I’m a nerd, sue me) and I heard someone say that Taylor Swift is arguably the biggest name in Pop right now. That made me feel so happy because I feel like I’ve been with Taylor since the beginning. It’s not like I jumped on the Taylor bandwagon when 1989 came out and everyone went nuts. I’ve been here since I was old enough to decide what kind of music I like.

I am lucky enough to have gone to a Taylor Swift concert when she was touring for Speak Now. It was awesome. Just saying. When she was in Denver she performed in the Pepsi Center, which is this circular arena that the Nuggets (our basketball team) and the Aves (Our hockey team) play at. So while I was in the cheap seats and in the way back (why all my pictures show the view screen, not Taylor in person) I was lucky to be center stage.

Sorry, I’m rambling.

The moral of the story is: I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT. Enough to publicly declare my love on the internet.

To those of you still with me: Thanks for putting up with my random free write blog posts that really have nothing to do with diabetes and are kind of long winded and tend to ramble a lot. And that was funny because that sentence is a long winded and rambling sentence.

Love,

Claire

Back To School

Me and my bro and sis. Good times. I'm gonna miss them when I go to college!

Me and my bro and sis. Good times. I’m gonna miss them when I go to college!

So guys, I’m battling Senior Slump even though I haven’t even applied to college yet. It’s bad. Well, I’m actually doing all of my work on time (except for this really stupid thing for an online thing that I had a deadline for that I even went to my teacher for help – and then forgot to finish. Sad day.)

Senior year! I’m pretty excited about that – I’m so happy to be able to escape all of the mean girls and preppy gossip queens that I’ve been stuck with for the last few years. I only have until May! I realize that there will be mean girls in every place that I go, but at college it seems more likely to be able to escape them.

Side note: I have yet to get my senior pictures done. That’s been bugging me.

And I’m actually working on college applications. For like my first two years and maybe a little more of high school I would run away screaming whenever anybody brought up the subject of college, but now it’s actually here and I can hold down a conversation about what I’m thinking about doing in the future. At least I have something to say to people when they say, “Oh you’re a junior/senior – what are your plans for college?” That question used to make me so mad.

I hate how everybody seems to have a concrete idea of what they are doing already even though they are only sixteen and seventeen! My goodness.

So, I’m sure you’re wondering: My plans (extremely tentative as they are) are to apply to several schools (I don’t want to go in state but I’m going to apply to a few as a contingency plan) and then I plan to defer admission for a year. I want to take a gap year to figure out more of where my interests lie because I seem to change everyday in terms of what I want to major in. During the gap year, I am thinking of either enlisting in AmeriCorps for eleven months or just working and maybe doing an internship and save some money before I head off to college. Although college is definitely in the books eventually.

Well, tata for now! I hope all of you who are stressing about this will take some deep breaths with me. We are all in this together!

A Random Question

Welcome to random world.

Lets just say that you were in high school. And lets just say that you happened to be obsessed with Harry Potter. Oh, hello, that’s me.

If I started a quidditch club, would you join? Trust me, it’s real. Like, muggles, or non-magical people can play quidditch. Look it up. I’m not kidding.

But lets just say that I started a quidditch club in my high school, would you join? I need some incentive to do it. So do comment. :)

And for those of you who are confused, think Harry Potter.

SUMMER

Welcome back, everyone! It feels like I haven’t blogged in FOREVER. Well, I hope to fix that. I can explain my absence in some part, though. If you’ve been following my blog, then you might know that I moved to Mexico for a year. And I just got back to my home in Colorado. I got back the day before yesterday. If you want more info on my so called “Adventure to Mexico”, my family has a blog about it.

Now that Summer is finally here (for me, anyway), I’ve got some stuff that I like to call time. Time to have the perfect A1C. Time to start up my CGM again. Time to exercise  a ton.

So that’s what I did. I started my CGM back up about two weeks ago, and I’ve  remembered how much I LOVE IT. So if you don’t have a CGM, your missing out, in my opinion. But if you don’t want one, that’s your choice. I’m not going to try to convince you to get one, because it’s your choice. Though I am in love with mine.

So it’s summer!!! WOOT WOOT!! I don’t really know what to say that’s diabetes related, but, hey! Whatever. I need some time to just relax and hang out. Not think about important things like diabetes. And post random blog posts, like this one, which seem to have a direction at first, but then just go on rambling. But at this point, I don’t care.

Have you guys seen the new Harry Potter movie yet? Did you totally love it? Are you sad that the series is over? (RANDOM.)

Sooooooo…… Happy Summer!! Yay! Go to the pool! Get sun burned! Bolus, or at some party or something, you’ll go high!

And thanks for reading!

Sincerely,

Claire Montgomery
