Dear Anyone Whose Reading,

Did you guess it right? Well then good job for you. I am putting off my homework just to write this blog. Just kidding, I just really don't want to do my homework. Which brings me to my first point: Procrastination. It's a very hard thing to avoid and try and push back. I once read a book that said Procrastination never fully went away but if you controlled it properly, it could be pushed back to the point where you wouldn't be tempted to procrastinate on something you know needs to be done but don't really feel like putting in the effort to do it now. You tell yourself you have all the time in the world, be it a day, two days, or a month. You tell yourself, 'Heck man, I got time. I don't feel like doing it right now.' I don't even remember how many times that saying has bit me back in the ass. I messed up so many times on important projects or outside book readings just because of what I told myself. Newsflash: Time is precious and you shouldn't waste a second of it.

However, I believe that I'm doing just that right at this very moment. I really don't want to start my homework, which consists of writing a lengthy speech because of obvious reasons: it takes too much thought and effort. Let's be honest: I'm a lazy lazy lazy person and if I could, I would put this off. But, it's homework and homework is usually due the next day and thus, I am trying to push myself to write that dang speech but instead, I settled for blogging, which is another procrastination distraction for me as you can see.

To all my fellow procrastinators out there: Good luck guys, you're gonna need it. Procrastination doesn't come without some kind of backlashes or consequences. You might just regret pushing it off and even after you regret it, you would do it again in a heartbeat sometimes.

Well, I'm gonna take my own advice and skedaddle off the Internet. I really hope that I start that speech after I post this but...that might or might not happen because I'm suddenly craving ice cream. And you can't exactly write the most well-thought out speech with ice cream. But what the hell. So remember: Don't procrastinate. But if you're gonna do it, be prepared for the results (i.e. bad grades, parent/teacher lectures, or your classmates getting ahead of you)

Boy Troubles

Dear Anyone Whose Reading,

The title says it all my friends. You see, I like this guy at my school and I think I just found out that he already likes someone else when I was convinced that he didn't like anyone at all. So you can imagine my disappointment when I realized that he already likes someone else. But honestly, I'm wondering: What does it feel like to be in love? Like, how does someone just know? How were my parents able to make such a huge commitment to each other by getting married? It baffles me truly, it does. What must it feel like to be just so in love with another person that you decide you want to grow old with that person? It sounds...amazing (if everything works out). To just have someone there who loves you for who you are, who loves your weirdness, your oddities, and just all of you. Sounds a little too good to be true if you ask me.

My friend told me that when you're single, all you see are happy couples. And when you're in a relationship, all you see are happy singles (even though I said that all the person sees would be the person their in love with but apparently not). I'm definitely seeing all the happy couples around and it's highly depressing. I understand that some couples in school are...just fake. I mean, if you were really in love with someone, how could you just break-up in a few months? It makes me question if people are going out with people just for popularity or something. That's sad really, it is.

But then again, wouldn't being in a relationship make school harder? After all, when you're in a relationship, aren't you expected to have to hang out with them and go on dates? Ughh, this is confusing. I think I'll wait until I'm older to make sure I make the right decision with guys. After all, some guys are completely clueless so girls out there: you're gonna have to make it pretty damn obvious that you're into them.

Newbie Here

Dear Anyone Whose Reading,

Huh, so this is what blogging feels like. Not much different than a diary I guess? Hmm, what should I talk about here? I guess anything's alright since nobody's really gonna care. Uh so my school just recently started and I guess it's alright. But then again, it's school so I hate it and love it at the same time. I mean, I like seeing my friends and talking to people but I hate, like absolutely hate, getting up around 7 in the morning (which is considered way early for me) and having to drag myself to walk to school. It's terrible really. 

Another thing you should know about me is that I like to write. Mostly fantasy and romance, LOTS of romance. I'm a cheesy romantic chick-flick kinda girl, what can I say? I cry even when things are only the slightest bit emotional and I honestly fall in love with some of the relationships that couples have in books or movies. It's so sweet and I wish I had it. I wish I had that guy who was just...perfect. Of course, perfect ANYTHING doesn't exist but the books make it seem like they have the perfect life. I obviously desperately want a boyfriend but that doesn't mean I'm flinging myself at anyone. I'm....waiting I guess. For who? Who knows. Maybe I'm waiting to grow old and live by myself with fifty dogs. I don't think I could ever be happy alone. I want a guy who would hold me, give me his jacket when it's cold (even though I think the guy would get cold too), and just be amazingly caring, sweet, funny, athletic, and maybe a little bad-boy ;) I would never be able to handle a goody-two shoes. I want to believe in soul mates, truly I do. But if I do, I don't want to set myself up for being forever alone. 

I guess you would probably be wondering why I called my blog as a Cloud Nine Kinda Life. If you didn't already know 'Cloud Nine' is like a part in time where someone is really happy. So they would be like 'I'm floating on cloud nine right now' And I am not the kinda girl to be super happy all the time and have an absolutely positive outlook on life 24/7. So why pick Cloud Nine? I dunno, it just popped into my mind. I guess I just wanted some kind of paradox about how I've never been truly amazingly happy about anything and that maybe I want something like that to happen? Like if I got asked to Homecoming or Prom by someone. I'm not a big fan of dancing but I DO love the corsages; I think their beautiful and I would go to HC/Prom just for that. Their so pretty and I love them. But I don't think I could ever be very beautiful in a dress or anything. I have no idea what kind of hairstyle my hair would even be in and...yeah. I'm being such a lovely optimist here, aren't I?

I think now would be a good time to end my first blog post. I've talked about what I feel like right now so yeah, maybe you can understand me and maybe you can't. ;D Until next time I suppose.
