Train Tracks & Cute Hats {November 2013}

Last weekend one of my best friends, Beka, and I had another photoshoot. It's kind of a seasonal thing that we do and we always have a blast! When the weather changes or we get bored, we say "Hey let's do a photoshoot." :) So here are the Fall 2013 pictures we took!

Growing Up & Stuff

I've literally been debating a post idea for days. Clicking "new post" and then "delete" over and over and over because I just couldn't find the words. So life has been busy...

Volleyball is over. Been fitting in as much babysitting as possible. Filling out job applications. Doing a crazy amount of homework each night.

I turned seventeen 2 weeks ago and that has made me feel a different kind of "old" than I usually feel on my birthday. 13 - I became a teenager. 14 - I'd say was my defiant age. 15 - getting more mature. 16 - got my license. 17 - ??? Oh geez I guess that's where a job comes in? So I've been searching the nearby places I'd like to work at so I could start filling out some applications.

We've all heard about the applications, the interviews, the coworkers, and the job itself processes...but until you get there, it's a whole different game. I think trying to find a job has given me the most anxiety and nervousness that I've felt. Just thinking of the questions I'll have to answer, or if they'll think I'm not mature enough, or qualified
enough...and on and on the worries go.

Prayer has been my best friend lately. I also have to thank all my friends that have prayed for me and who have let me vent about life. One night this past week I just got so upset that I had meltdown and just prayed for God to lift me up and not feel so overwhelmed with responsibilities. After all, I'm 17 and still growing up and learning how to do all of this. :)

Posse Night In

I first told you about my great group of friends, last August, when we went to Valleyfair. We recently hung out at one of the guy's house to celebrate his 17th birthday. It was tons of fun!

Bonfire. Friends. Laughing. TV. Inside jokes. Games. Food.

Every single one of us made it - which is a miracle considering there is 14 of us. We always have a blast and it's fun for everyone because we don't have to feel pressured or awkward around each other. Playing ping pong or watching whatever sport is on TV that night is just fine. Of course telling jokes is necessary for us - otherwise it would be too boring. :) I don't know what I would do without these people.

Unfortunately, we didn't take a group picture but here are the ones that were taken that night.

Hey everyone! There have been 6 official days of November...Can you believe it? It seems like every year goes faster and faster...only 2 more full months of 2013. Crazy.

So can you guess what tomorrow is? Yep, you guessed it...MY 17TH BIRTHDAY!!!! :) I'm so excited and since I have school this Thursday and Friday - my weekend is packed full of celebrating. Don't worry, I'll post about my celebrations here and on instagram. (follow me: michlynk_fisher) Speaking of instagram - here's my catch up of the last 2 months.

Oh and I would just like to note that we got our first official snowfall yesterday - So happy winterish fall :)

Halloween with a Spanish Twist

This year my costume was a little bit different. It took me until that night to figure out what I wanted to be. You see, I'm in Spanish 3...and in Mexico they also celebrate a Halloween holiday except it's called "La Dia de los Muertos". (the day of the dead) It has a big meaning behind it, so I'll spare your time and you can Google it.

I had my friend Sophie sleeping over that night and she's like an artist so she decided to paint our faces like the Spanish skulls. It took a while but it was grand fun and then we went trick or treating like the crazy teenagers we are and spoke Spanish to people. :)

Halloween 2013 was a success! We'll see if I actually decide I'm too old next year :)
