Introducing….


A while back I did a few posts about branching out to new types of people. One was about gaming, one was about creativity, and one was about being a smart Alec. That was in 2013, and since then I’ve changed a lot. So I decided to talk to you guys about myself. Ugh, let me begin by telling you that I absolutely hate talking about myself. I’m awful at it, but I will try for you guys. Let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start). The first thing you need to know about me is that I’m a girl (in case there was any confusion there). I’m not going to disclose my appearance to you all, but I will tell you that my favorite physical feature is my green eyes. Okay, next thing is that I’m sixteen years old (that means this blog is 5 years old!!). I love to read a write (duh), but I also love to sing, snowmobile, and hike. Next need to know thing is that I’m a nerd. No, I don’t mean that I put on fake glasses, where a schoolgirl outfit, and pretend to pay videogames. I mean that I’m literally a nerd as in I excel in school, and I love learning. I’m rarely found without a book, I use words that I end up having to explain to my friends, and if someone wants to know what we should leave as a tip I will actually calculate it with proper significant figures. Also, I play Magic the Gathering (monoblack deck :p )……. Yep definitely a nerd tried and true. When I’m not nerding out (or sometimes simultaneously) I listen to music. I’m absolutely enchanted by music. I honestly can’t explain how or why, but it’s true haha. Moving on to some deeper things, my parents are divorced. I live with my mom and go to my dad’s every other weekend. It’s not easy being a Child of Divorce, but it’s my life. Alrighty, to delve deeper, I’m an INFJ (Introverted, iNtuitive, Feeling, Judging), and I will leave a link at the bottom of this post to lead you to a website that perfectly explains that. To go a tad more superficial, I volunteer a lot for several places. And I do believe that I have run out of things to say about myself. Anyway, I did this just because I gained more followers recently and I doubt that they would like to go through every single post ever attempting to find out more about the author of adviceateleven. If any of you want to know more about me just leave your question in the form of a comment on this post, and if you have a suggestion for my next post please leave a comment. That’s all for now folks.

First Day Worries and Woes


I’ve denied you guys this post for too long. However, it wasn’t all my fault, my internet was down so yeah. Also, I was in a desolate state. I was immensely depressed. (If you haven’t caught on yet, I’m trying to tell you that the first day sucked, on ice.) My hair looked great; as did my nails, makeup, and outfit. How I looked wasn’t the problem. I only have one class with Luke, only one class with Julie, and no classes with any of my other sisters. Plus I got the tougher English teacher. He’s going to make me a better writer, but I’m scared that in the process I’ll lose my deep love for writing. I don’t want that to happen. My other teachers aren’t the best either. My science teacher is “by the boo” as she says. However she’s too by the book, she’s all work no fun. My Spanish teacher babies us like we’re in fifth grade Spanish instead of eleventh (I skipped a grade in Spanish). My social studies teacher is okay, she isn’t great, she doesn’t suck. My math teacher is chill, I actually really like him, he’s a “go with the flow, just do the work and we’ll be friends” kind of guy. My chorus teacher is the same one I had last year, she’s eccentric, but I love her even if she does have an unnatural amount of energy in the morning. She’s also my music theory teacher (she has unnatural energy at the end of the day as well). 

This reminds me, I have homework for music theory that I’d like your guys help on. In your opinion, is music an art or a science?? Leave a comment or send me an email with your viewpoint.

Alright, now next order of business is my latest vocabulary update. You may have perceived how I’ve been scattering more advanced terms throughout the course of this post. Well, my English teacher said something that inquired my interest. “There’s always a better word,” how true!! Admit it, on how many occasions have you said a mediocre word when you could have, should have used a more appropriate word?? If you’re like me the answer is often. I wish to use superior words, therefore I will make it a point to do so. Let’s face it, the internet gives the choice to be whatever you want, why choose to be stupid??

Creative Cat


By now you guys should know that my hobbies and talents tend to be on the creative side of things. I write, I sing, I dance, I act, these are all things that require a certain amount of creativity. While those are my main hobbies, I also like some other creative things. By that I mean that I really enjoy art. Art can come in many forms. The basics are paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, and so on. However, dance is an art. Music and acting are also arts. I love the arts, but I’m not skilled with a paintbrush by any means. I can sketch a little (meaning that when I sketch people can tell what it’s supposed to be at best) and I really like working with oil pastels. The art I make though is no still life, nor portrait. I make representational art (abstract and surreal). When I draw or paint or sculpt, I prefer to make something that makes people think. I want people to wonder what the meaning behind my art is. (I also like drawing cartoon people for fun haha.)

You’re probably like, why the heck is she telling us this?? Well, the reason is that I’m trying to show you guys my other sides. I wanted to branch out, so my blog could touch all kinds of people. If you read my last post then you know all about my idea. The main point of me telling you about my artsy side is because I want you to know that if you need someone to share your artwork with, I’m your girl. I appreciate art, however I don’t appreciate obscene pictures. So if you’re going to send me art, make sure it’s pg. If you want to share you’re art with me (I hope you do!!) then email me at adviceateleven@gmail.com 

Even if you don’t want share art and you just want to talk, I’m cool with that. Email me!! Haha, okay this creative cat is out

Sleep Away Camp


Sleep away camp was……….. SO AWESOME!!!! Haha I had a lot of fun, I made so many friends and had tons of fun. The food was great (vegetarian options!!) the fellow campers were nice (new friends!!) and the counselors were awesome. The only thing I didn’t like was how much I missed Luke. It’s super dorky but, I thought about him all the time. It hurt to be away from him. Yeahhh I guess I’m a little clingy but whatever. 
I have not talked about music in forever, and if you’ve noticed my latest milestone, I’m going camping soon. So before I go away again, I’m gonna fill you in on what my playlist consists of at the moment. Lately I have been obsessed with Birdy. Some of my favorite songs from her are Shelter, Skinny Love, People Help the People, and 1901. Okay, so another artist that i think deserves mentioning is Elena Siegman. All you Xbox nerds know her, even if you don’t recognize the name. She sings many hidden songs in the Nazi Zombies maps in Call of Duty. (If somehow I messed the info up sorry, I’m not exactly an Xbox junkie). You might recognize some of her songs like, 115, The One, Beauty of Annihilation, and Lullaby of a Dead Man. I’ve been trying to learn to sing some of her songs because well it’s really nerdy but I would really want to sing a song for a popular video game. Not just any song though, a hidden song. Like to unlock the song you would have to do some crazy thing in the game that no one would expect unlocks a song. Besides Elena Siegman songs are like creepy and sexy at the same time, it’s awesome. Alright, I’ll only mention one more artist (I could go on forever when it comes to music) and because I’ve already talked about two female singers, I’ll talk about a male group. Three Days Grace, they rock. Haha sorry I’m not listing any songs.
Hmmm, so I really need to plan out what I’m going to  write before I start writing it…. that would be smart. Okay so because I cannot, for the life of me, think of anything else to say, I’m going to say goodbye (I may or may not post again before I go camping)

New Stuff


Okay, I’m going to put myself out there. Close my eyes and really take a leap of faith. What I’m going to do could either be steroids to my confidence or be another wrecking ball hurtling towards the torn and shredded self esteem left in me. Alright so I’m being a wee bit melo-dramatic. All I’m really going to do is add tags to my posts. I hope that by adding tags, my blog posts will pop up on like search engines and what not. You know you type in, tags, and there this post is.

Anyways, I’m in a good mood. It may be late at night, I may be surrounded by crumpled and crushed kleenex due to my allergies to who knows what, and yeah I may have just been bawling my eyes out (no doubt I’ll be paying for that when I wake up with red, puffy eyes). However I have not let the current circumstances put a damper on my mood. Yup, it’s all sunshine, unicorns, and pretty music. (Plus I still got my sense of humor!!) So due to my blissful temperament I’m going to update you guys on the good in my life at the moment.

So, the sunshine I would say is this song I’ve been listening to. It also happeneds to be the cause of my uncontrollable crying. This song is pretty old, but regardless of its age I intend to learn how to sing this song, and I have been practicing for days. Lovely by Sara Haze is this song that I am head over heels for. Its meaning is simply put yet beautifully said with a cascading voice and soft piano tones. I’m absolutely enchanted by this song.

Next, the unicorns. Which would also be yet another reason for my tears. I’m starting some summer acting classes at a collage close by. I’m so excited, yet it means I will have to give up time well spent with my friends. Also, the next week I’m going to a sleep away camp. No phone, computer, or friends.

Ah the pretty music (I guess this one should be the song but whatever, it’s my blog I do what I want haha). The pretty music would have to be Luke. He makes me happy and he happens to be the reason the bawling stopped. Who would have thought one smile he put on my face could turn around my night completely?? I sure didn’t. I don’t know how he does it, he makes my heart feel like it’s having helium pumped into it and any second my body will join my head in the clouds. Of course it isn’t always picnics on cloud nine. Every once in a blue moon we disagree, and we get depressed, and I fear he will realize that there’s no way in this universe I will ever be good enough for him. How he puts up with me, is a mystery I’ll probably never solve, and one I don’t think I want to solve.

Dang, do I sound like a lovesick puppy or what???????? Actually can I be a lovesick kitten?? I think they’re cuter haha. (I’m kinda hoping he doesn’t read this post…. I sound so girly and eh needy, ehhhh my good mood’s gone I’m seriously considering deleting this entire post and just crying again. No, I said I would put myself out there, well world here I am) Okay so now that my pep talk to myself is over I will get to the meaning of this post. Basically there’s so much freaking bad in this world of ours. Crying, allergies, divorce, poverty, starvation, death. But man, just look at the wondrous good as well. Music, education, a smile when it seems as though you’ll never experience anything other than a frown ever again. Yeah, there’s a heck of a lot of bad, but the good is worth sticking around for, trust me.
