Losing Loved Ones

   It's always really hard to lose someone that is close to you. I have had quite a few experiences where I have lost family and friends. Losing someone is almost always like getting punched in the gut. It's all of a sudden and unexpected, hurts a lot, and for seconds to minutes you can't breath or think.
   People look at losing someone like it is a sad thing, which it is but we should also try to look at death in a positive or even uplifting way. I'm sure that the person you love would much rather you smile then cry for them. 
   Question is, how can something so sad and heart breaking be turned into something uplifting? Focus on all the good things. You have shared and created many memories with this loved one that you will always have to cherish. Maybe it's running around the forest with them or a joke they told you, whichever memories you shared together you will always have those to look back on. I'm sure that you have learned many things from them that will help you succeed in life, be grateful they were there to teach/show you what they know. Perhaps this special person inspired you to try something new or play an instrument (something along those lines) be grateful for that too! Just be grateful that you had the chance to know and share memories with this person. 
   Something else to think about is that now this loved one is now, hopefully, at peace. They are in a place where they are welcomed to be as happy as possible... If you believe in this kind of afterlife. They may also be reunited with another passed away love one. You should be happy for them, that they are in peace now. 
   There are so many ways to look at death happily rather than focusing on the sad stuff and the main detail that they are not here anymore. These are just a few ways to get you thinking about it. I'm sorry for the many of you that have gone through losing loved ones. Try to be happy and positive about it though. (:
With much love,
Vanessa 

For the curious... this is me thinking about what to write. I pre-wrote this post while at the Doctors.

   This award is nominated to blogs who have under 200 follows and is a fairly new blog!
If you get nominated here is what you will need to do. 
  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer the questions they have for you
  • Nominate some new bloggers to win the award (they must have under 200 followers and it cannot be the person you nominated you)
  • Give them 11 fun questions to answer and make sure to contact them
   Here are the questions from the writer of Diary of an Unpopular Teen:
1) What is your favorite hobby?
Dragon Boating! I don't even have to think about this one... I just love it so much. 
2) Name three adjectives that describe you perfectly.
Caring, Passionate, and fun-loving 
3) Where do you see your self in five years from now?
Well, I would be 22 years old. I think I would be out of school and finally self employed. I'll for sure still be blogging, photo taking and dragon boating. I kinda want to teach little kids to dance or have a photo studio.

I think it would have to be seeing how people live in another country and it scares me how spoiled we are to live in this amazing country.

Omnilingualism! The ability to speak any language you want.

10) Are you more introverted or extroverted?
Introverted! In case you haven't noticed I feel like a lot of bloggers are like this. Don't get me wrong I love to party but I enjoy my alone time too!

First Day Of Sch-

   I can't even say the word school right now. Wait... I just did, okay never mind that. But anyways the first day of school is always the worst for me. From the teachers to the students.
   Everyone wakes up an hour earlier than they normally would... They do this so they have extra time to look pretty for the first day then they go to looking like crap (sorry) the rest of the year. It's pretty much pointless to wear a dress, makeup, and do your nails unless you'll keep that up all year long. 
   When you finally get to school after waiting at the bus stop for 30 mins because you realized you had to much time, people ask the most annoying question ever. "What did you do over summer?!" If your at all like me summer consist of day trips and Netflix.. So you already know what ever you say will be stepped on by who ever asked you. It's almost there way of rubbing it in. Na ma I had an amazing summer and all you did was sit around * laughs and walks away while laughing * Is it at all possible not to ask this?
   Then you get to school and a bunch of people are hugging you first thing in the morning and telling you that they missed you. But if they really missed you... why didn't they text you?! Lies... Anyways you rush to your first class and the games begin.
   Teachers have you play the most stupid get to know you games. Me being a Junior still have to play these games even if I know everyone. Let me name these games:
Leap name... this is the game where you go around saying your name and something you like.
Matching index... the game where you write your name and what you like to do and people ave to guess who's card it is.
Who are you?... this is the traditional game where teachers point to you and you tell them your name...funnn
   The next worst thing is the syllabus I like to call this pointless paper a silly-bus. Its pointless the teachers make it seem golden but really all you need to do is talk to the teachers to know how your doing and how your grade is going to come out. Your lucky if your still stuck in elementary school.
   Yeah, I don't know the first few days of school are just horrible. On top of this everyone is chatting, nervous, and anxious. I hate it. I start in nine days!... great.
Have fun if your starting school!,

Working For What I Want

   I spent all of yesterday painting my moms friends house, sanding, and washing selves. Hard work for sure, although it was a little fun, we played music while we worked and talked about random stuff.
   A while earlier my friends Ian and Hellen asked me if I could go fishing with them and so I asked my mom. She doesn't like letting me go an hour away from home with friends but she told me she would think about it.
   My plan from the start was to work hard and then say I worked hard and I need a break so there forward it was a good idea to let me go fishing with my buddies.
  Well, Lemme tell you... It worked! I asked my mom, John, Ian's dad,  called, and my mom said yes.
Sooo here is what I have learned.
   If you want something you need to work hard for it.
Try it!,

Ukulele/Music

I was at the thrift shop and I saw a ukulele! Just the other day I was in the car with my moms friend and we were talking about how chill it would be to have one. You know just the thought of walking around playing the uke. And lucky me I found one the next day. It sat there on the wall, purple with a dolphin on it. I bought if for 35 dollars; I was pretty happy about that deal.
I have been learning to play a few songs and each one is super easy. I think I have I'm Yours down pretty well. Its just been really fun.
Here is the link to a small part of that song.

Anyways. I'm enjoying it!
Also if any of you have Spotify, I have made a really good play list called teenage crime which is worth checking out. You can look it up by putting   spotify:user:thymoonseeker    in the search box. Tell me what you think of it if you do take a look at it (:
XOXO,
Vanessa

My Biggest Fear

Not being able to see.
Out of all the things I can fear this is most feared. People take seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, and so many other things for granted. By realizing how bad it would be not to see I am more grateful for what I have. Seriously though how horrible would it be not to see color and emotion? I feel so bad for people who are born not being able to see. I wish everyone could be blessed to see. It really is a blessing! And for all of my readers who have good health, bad health sound be a fear of yours! 
Love, 
Vanessa

You Are A Blogger?

   People always seem to be surprised when I tell them I am a blogger. I think part of it is that people don't really expect me to be the writing type since I hate writing stuff for school. Maybe its the way I dress. I have this simple yet wild fashion since which isn't to bold for bloggers...I feel like bloggers have a good fashion sense so people may be surprise because of that. Whatever it is...it's quite amusing actually.
   I think next year, just to get a laugh out of it, I'm going to try to be the girl with a blog.

Jake: What hobbies do you have?
Me: I'm a blogger.
Jake: *Surprised* Seriously?
Me: Yep.
Jake (Two Weeks Later): Want to hang out sometime... Saturday, maybe.
Me: Oooo I can't. I have a blog to run.

Liz: Why didn't you go to homecoming?
Me: I was busy.
Liz: With what?
Me: My Blog!
Liz: Right...

In Class while teacher is giving a lecture. I'm on my phone blogging about teachers.
Teacher: Vanessa! Put your phone away!
Me: Oh sorry I was blogging.
Class (Together): Of course!

   Seriously how funny would this be? to be known as the blogger. I think I want to do it! I just need a game plan.

Photography

   Have I mentioned that I love photography? I think that I have talked about in one of my posts but only briefly so with that being said it's probably a good time to talk about my love for picture taking.
   I have been taking pictures ever since I was little but I decided that I like it when I was about 13. I have taken pictures with a point and shoot for most of the time but about a year and a half ago I got my first DSLR. I take pictures with the Nikon D3200. I love this camera. I can not tell you how much... its my baby so handle it with care and if you break it I'll kill you... or something very close to that.
   There is just something about taking pictures that I love. I'm not sure what it is but its something. Maybe its the fact that I can have a reminder of a memories forever. It might even be the sound the camera makes when you hit the shutter button. I honestly have no idea why I love picture taking so much but there is just something about it.
   In a way I am a weird photographer. You know how the photographer tells the models to smile big? Well, when I'm taking a picture it's almost always the other way around. I tend to smile while I'm taking pictures of people... I'm a happy photographer.
   I'll share more about this later. If you want to see some of the pictures I have taken follow me on Instagram @thymoonseeker
Smile!,

How To Be Anoying

Hello Lovelies!
Today I'm going to be teaching you how to be annoying! Now why would I be doing this? Well... this is a life skill and it will save you from having to talk to people you don't like or people you are avoiding or in other words people that you don't want to like you.
Here are a few things you can do! 
  • Use like a lot. This always gets on peoples never because it makes you sound like a valley girl. " And I was like at the park and like this guy came up to me and like he asked for my number so like I gave it to him and he was like thanks cutie and I like didn't know what to say like OMG."
  • Spam people. This can easily get annoying to people if they are busy or sleeping and they hear a buzz.. and another buzz... and 20 more after that... then they read their text and its just the letters A to Z
  • Be loud and have a fake obnoxious laugh... or just be obnoxious. I know for a fact that most people can get easily annoyed by people who act like this. So put on that fake smile and start being super obnoxious and if your not sure how to do that Google it!
  • Chew with your mouth open and make sure to slurp whatever you are drinking. Hello, how annoying is this... I mean have some manners we are eating. 
  • Stop walking in the middle of the street/hallway if your at school. Your walking and all of a sudden the person in front of you stops walking, you try to stop but you can't and you end up crashing into them... really? Out of all the places to stop... you stop here?
  • Be boring. In other words don't think of things to talk about and don't be funny. Probably best to use as few words as possible to bore people. Person: "How was your day?" You: "Eh." Person: " I went to the mall the other day and I shopped for five hours it was crazy... I saw Bob and he said..." You: "Nice." They just told you a whole story that took them ten minutes to explain and all you say is nice. 
  • If your trying to annoy a guy. Never text first. Don't start a conversation with them, make them start one with you and once they do don't say a lot.
  • If you are on the phone with someone or on Skype with them breath into the phone/microphone... tapping also works. 
  • Last but not least... ask if your annoying a lot. "Am I annoying you?" "Is this annoying?" "I think I'm being annoying... Am I?" 
I almost want to guarantee doing some or all of these things will get on peoples nerves at one point or another... but it just depends on how well you can pull this off. Good Luck! 
If you can think of any other things that you find annoying feel free to comment. I would love to hear about more annoying things!
Have a good day! 
Vanessa

Little About Me


Hello fellow readers! Thank you so much for reading my blog!
Here is a small update:
The last few days I have been working on my blog like crazy. As you can see I have a new blog layout. Took me about five hours to construct a blog design I like but I really like how it turned out.

Denim Style

Denim is cute for sure and with that being said it's ideal to have at least one denim shirt... But how do you wear a denim shirt without looking head-toe in blue?
It's simple.

 Choose whether you want to layer the denim leaving the shirt open or button up the shirt.
20 Stylish Outfit Ideas with Denim Shirt





           









If you choose to layer it you can wear a plain colored tee or even a tee with patters like dots or floral print under the denim. 
            
Winter/Fall FashionBlack and white striped shirt, chambray or denim button-up shirt, navy blazer, burnt orange jeans                                                                   layer denim shirt with another shirt underneath! genius! goes great with skinnies
Your last step is to choose what kind of pants you want to wear. Personally, I like how denim shirts look paired with white jeans. But you can easily pair them with any color of jeans from light pink to dark red to black.
blue button down shirt + white pants, interesting accentsAmerican Eagle Shirt, Zara Jeans, Veronique Pumps C/o Shoe Mint, Chanel Purse           chambray + pastel


Be really careful when you pair a demin shirt with your regular pair of blue jeans becuase it can turn out to be a blue over load. To avoid this wear a really light demin shirt or an acid washed one and pair that with really dark jeans.  (This is shown on the first picture)

I also don't recommend pairing your denim with legging this can be very tricky to make it look appealing.


Use Beanies To Transform Your Autumn Outfit Into A Winter OneThose pants tho!!!       
Anyways, it's only three easy steps to making it look like you know how to style that denim shirt! 
If you want another quick post on how to pair denim with shirts...just comment! 
Vanessa
... Im really loving that outfit with the bennie, white flower shirt, rolled jeans and white converse.
