Califonia Livin'

Again, it's been far too long since I last posted. EEK! I'm a second semester junior, what can I do?? SO. MUCH. WORK. on the bright side, I'm feeling very encouraged and excited about college after taking a practice ACT/meeting with my schools college counselor. So. YAY. 
However, the price is exhaustion. BUT today I had literally one thing to do for homework, and instead of getting ahead in what will be due on Friday, I'm going to do nothing of that matter and focus on CREATIVE ENDEAVOURS FINNNALLLYYY. 

Here are some pictures my dad took on Sunday. 
I'm loving the California weather, and even though I'm a T33N WITCH GRRL, I live in California and the DOOM & GLOOM of Witchy-ness, just sometimes isn't possible in the 70 degree weather in the middle of March. 

Things: I'm in love with this shirt, which I realized I haven't actually pictured yet (GASP) that I bought from Hollie's Etsy a few months ago, which I have been wearing, like, every time it gets out of the wash. I'm pretty sure it has not yet been put in my drawers since I basically take it out of the laundry as soon as it's clean. Anyway, if you didn't guess... That's where my new blog title came from! I'm in love with this idea of Riot Grrls, Rookie Girls, Teen Feminists, etc. And I felt like the only way to properly express all these things in one title was TEEN WITCH. Sorry for the tumblr-esque 3's as E's but teen-witch and teenwitch were already taken, so...had to take what I could get. STILL! This is much more my style of a title. It goes way beter with how I feel, act, and believe than my previous one. 
I know it shouldn't be a big deal to change my title, but it sorta is. Not to get all annoying and analytical, but it symbolizes my changing person. So I still feel it's necessary to explain. 

ANYWAY: This outfit...I'm sorta loving it. I feel like I'm a Teen Witch on Vacation. Like I went to Australia, or like some tropical area. It feels so contradictory and out of place for a "TEEN WITCH" to be in the tropics. I dig it. 
I got this Hawaiian-shirt-fabric skort at thrift town this weekend. It's by far my favourite purchase of late: definitely worth the $3 I paid for it. It's so beautiful and just 80's and ugh. Skorts. 
ALSO. My earrings are SO awesome. My friend gave them to me for Christmas and it's two halves of a Kangaroo plastic animal. The front is in one ear and the back is in the other. She gave me the best Christmas present: these earrings, a Frida Kahlo calendar and the skirt that I made for her in 7th grade (it's not really her style anymore and is TOTALLY my style so I asked for it...haha) (augh I am the worst friend since I STILL haven't gotten her a present...)

Flower Power

It's been FOREVER since I last posted! Eeeeek. I'm so sorry.
[insert the usual paragraph of excuses]
Anyway, here's a little life update for y'alls. I went the the White Elephant Sale and got a bunch of craft supplies and awesome stuff, I then babysat and got money and bought more stuff for my room, and yeah. Last week I finally had time and actually got around to making a shrine in my room! EEk. anyway, I'm EXHAUSTED from getting five hours of sleep last night and words are not coming to me as they should, so I will leave you with some pictures:
My newest flower crown! (hopefully pictured soon)
Made a new thing for my light switch
My wall
Cool part of my wall (I embroidered that Frida Kahlo patch on my own.)
Another part of my wall with a little cactus, post card, Polaroids, tarot card, and old pictures
CACTUS CANDLES?!?! what is this strange beauty. YEAH, I KNOW
I made a collage on the sides of my shrine with screencaps from Moonrise Kingdom, Clueless, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Simpsons, some pictures I took and some random stuff from tumblr
Went to Michaels and bought glitter for $0.99. Also Star candles from someone's birthday at my grandparents house this summer. 
Awesome cup (which I made into a candle) and a vintage necklace. (also yes, that is a little plastic baby coming out of the rose in the background)
GUYS! I'm learning guitar. It's so exciting. I can play Sea of Love by Cat Power (okay, I know that's not that impressive) and You and I by Ingrid Michaelson. (I'm also learning Blackberry Stone, but it's pretty difficult to play and I'm struggling...)
Another photo of my shrine
A journal entry inspired by the below video:

Another journal entry (first in the journal!)
Using an old pictures from this shoot
Cover-page for March
Picture of me I originally took for art class, but didn't end up using over a negative (changed in photoshop) nebula. 
Stay awesome babes,

I have three songs on my iPod titled "Untitled"

AUGH! It's been FOREVER since I last posted. But (hopefully) worth it because this photoshoot I did with my dad yesterday rocks my socks and hopefully yours too.
Okay, here's the part of the post where I give excuses for why I haven't been posting: Okay I've had track erryday after school so I'm all sweaty and gross/in track clothes when I get home and can't photograph anything unless I have the motivation to get re-dressed. And my weekends have been crazyness of me running around at night with my friends taking pictures with disposable cameras and watching Parent Trap together with Oreos and peanut butter and doing awesome as fuck stuff like that. Also I've been SO good about my journal and it's turning out soooo beautiful and I'm so excited. Pictures will come soon. (sorry for the over-abundance of "so" in that last sentence). Anyway, when I'm not hanging with my friends or doing homework (aka death) I'm watching tv and can't get my lazy ass up and get on makeup and get clothed to do anything.
BUT: I have a few posts coming up that I'm excited about...
we've been doing a bunch of creative writing for english and I wrote them and then I got excited and tweaked them so they didn't really fit the prompt anymore but were MUCH better and I wanna post them here soon. Also, as I mentioned, I have a bunch of journal pages that will come up soon. Also I have an inspiration post of my favourite blogs at the moment that I haven't had the motivation to write yet, but SO MUCH STUFF FOR YOU PEOPLE TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
Also, I'm so in love with this shoot. I took my hair out of a ponytail, greasy from track, didn't fix my smudged make-up from running, and re-dressed myself and dragged my dad to this playground near my house and asked him to see the pictures like every few seconds to make sure the pictures were turning out EXACTLY like I'd pictured them in my mind. I HOPE YOU LIKE THEM BECAUSE I ACTUALLY DIG THEM TOOOOOO MUCH FOR WORDS AUGH PONY BEADS AUGH CAT EARRINGS AUGH CHOKERS THAT MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A SURFER GIRL AND A 90's PUNK ROCKER SIMULTANEOUSLY AND I AM COMPLIMENTING MY OWN POST HARD CORE RIGHT NOW THIS MEANS IT'S TIME TO GO BYEEEEEEEEE
