The Month in Favorites: July 2014

Oh, Good Lord, where has the time gone? As the month nears its end, another fast approaches. Ah, August, I see you at the corner of my calendar. The month filled with excitement/nervousness about starting up school again, record temperatures, and sales. I also feel that it is severely lacking in holidays, save for Twins Days in Twinsburg, OH...alas, my home state never disappoints. 

But I digress.

Combating Oily, Acneic Skin

I have suffered from oily skin for going on ten years now; my first spots started showing up when I was eight (forehead acne caused by those dreadful childhood bangs) and became full-fledged when I was in middle school. When I got to high school, I was on a mission to try to find solutions to my oil, even googling ways to dry out my skin. Yet, I soon came to realize there was nothing I could do, aside from overdosing on apples (the vitamin A in them supposedly helps..? I never did test that theory). Instead, I learned tips to cope, and cope I did.

The Month in Favorites: June 2014

The month of June came and went in about two and a half blinks, but I must say that it was a very satisfying four weeks. After getting over all the pomp and ceremony of graduation (and the melancholy, bittersweet feeling that goes along with it), I finally got to take a breath and go on a much needed vacation. I also started this blog, which I must say is my first and most important favorite of the month.

Advice to Those Entering High School

The text I sent right before leaving for my first day of Senior year. 
As I try to cling to the last few days of June (aka, the safe period before you start worrying about school in mid-July), I have been thinking a lot about what the hell I was doing these past four years. Prior to high school, I was outgoing and wasn't afraid to speak my mind. But basically, freshman year through the beginning of junior year,
