OH DEAR LORD

I just looked up from my laptop to see that really hot teacher standing in front of the door of the classroom that I’m sitting in… and I was totally laughing about strange blog posts… yeah so he’s just standing there staring at me, and when I look up I’m like *holy shittake mushrooms you’re hot… stare stare stare* and he just looks at me and smiles and then walks down the hall. We just had a moment there. Hahaha yeah… it should be illegal to hire hot teachers because holy mustaches there are some pretty cute teachers at our school…

Also, I’m doing a “Weekly Post” like Ariel is doing over at Lots of Love Seattle… so yeah here’s what I’m going to do every week, probably every Saturday because that way my school week has just ended. Oh and I totally just inserted that link using my new found skills of html I learned from Code AcademyΒ πŸ˜€

So here’s what’s gonna be in my “Weekly Post”

  • A song/playlist of the week
  • 3 facts
  • Interesting things that happened
  • A quote
  • A word of the week
  • A book of the week
  • Maybe a rant/rave, if I have anything to talk about

(I totally just wrote that list with html… yeah be proud of me)

Until next time, Em πŸ™‚

HE WAS TOO GOOD TO BE STRAIGHT

So there’s this guy that my friend was setting me up with… now we all had the suspicion that he was gay. He’s too freaking perfect to be straight. For God’s sake, he wants to be a fashion designer/artist. There is no way he is straight. Well, I guess it was just wishful thinking hoping that we could go to the ball at his/my friend’s school together. NOW IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Because he came back to school, four inches taller, but also gay. With a boyfriend. Yep, this could not be any worse. I mean, I just wanted a date to the dance (even just as friends) but now it will never happen because he’ll probably bring his boyfriend. Fudge.

Photo a day: day 29

Day 29: Your bag

So this is actually my mom’s bag, but since she wasn’t using it, I decided to “borrow” it… she got it at a farmer’s market in Portland, OR and now I really want to go get one for myself!

 

Until next time, Em πŸ™‚

DIY Fake Gauges

So I decided to make some fake gauges like these…

or these…

http://www.etsy.com/listing/86819891/fake-gauge-earrings-gold-dust-polymer?ref=usr_faveitems

So here goes!

I used 1/2 a block of polymer clay for each earring (two rolls) (the little package included 4 blocks)

First, roll the polymer clay into two rolls of the same length (I used 1/4 of a block for this)

Second, put the butterfly-nut (non-pointy part) in one end of the clay so that the hole is just peeking out of the clay.

Third, but the earring-back into the butterfly nut to develop a hole in the piece of clay.

Fourth, take the earring-back out of the butterfly-nut and put it in the other piece of clay (pointy side out).

Fifth, mold the pieces of clay however you want, but do NOT attach the butterfly-nut and earring-back.

Sixth, repeat steps 1-5 with another 1/2 piece of clay (now you’ve used up 1 piece out of the 4 that come in the package).

Seventh, take apart the clay pieces so they aren’t touching and put them on a non-oiled cookie sheet.

Eighth, Bake as the instructions on the clay say (I cooked it for 14 minutes at 275 degrees).

Ninth, Take the earrings out of the oven and fit them together like you want them to look like.

Tenth, let the earrings cool for about 5 minutes, still together.

Eleventh, take the earrings apart (they should be cool now) and coat the metal parts with clear nail polish.

Twelfth, TRY THEM ON!

“I haven’t gotten used to social interaction yet”

This is a quote that my friend said during school picture day… yeah this pretty much describes my friends.

So we were sitting around during the free period at the end of the day, discussing the new (freaking cute) teacher… and my friend and I both decided that he looked really familiar. She decided to go ask if he had worked at a school she had visited, because she thought that’s where she recognized him from. We walked over to his office, laughing.

So then she asked him, “so, where did you work before here?” HIS FACE. Because he looked like there was a creepy teenage girl stalking him, I decided to say “she thinks you look familiar”… then he said the name of a school near ours, and she said “yeah, when I visited I talked to a German teacher, and I think it was you.” Well, that was the end of it. And can I just say he’s adorable. Which is creepy. Anyways…

So ever since I went to horse camp and my counselor had these super-awesome fake-gauges, I decided to make some. I found these awesome ones on Etsy, and I’m going to Joann’s tonight to get some earring posts and clay.
