tuesday’s with Emily

Hello all!

The title just came to me randomly, my inspiration was that book..Tuesday’s with Morrie I think it is..?? Well I haven’t read it but I’ve heard it’s pretty good.  I just thought it fit this post :]

my look for Tuesday --


- neon yellow shirt
- black cropped jacket
- jean/leggings
- the ‘ol rainbows

School was just so-so today.  Pictures went well..I’m actually pretty satisfied with mine.  However Ms. Perfectionist decided to tag a long with me to class today.  Sometimes I just can’t stand it, I don’t know why I have to have things such a precise way.  It seems like I can never be okay with anything until it’s absolutely flawless.  Like this morning in math, my teacher called us up to find out the grade we got on our test, I got an 81, which is a B.  You’d think I would be happy with that, but NO, Ms. Perfectionist wants an A or preferably an A+.  So I just start scrambling my thoughts, figuring out how I can raise my overall grade or how I can study more, yet I haven’t actually sat down to do the math and figure out what my actual overall grade really IS.  When I finally get the chance to do so, my grade turns out to be a 93 – which is an A.  I don’t understand why I get so worked up over little things like that, I stress myself out so much more than I really need to.  But, even as I realize this, I’m still continuing to stress myself out!  It’s an endless cycle, let me tell you.

So sorry you just had to endure that rambling.  I’m in a state of ventilation right now :]

In other things..I went to the grocery store today after school with the madre and got some good new grub.  I got bars out the wazoo, which I’m extremely excited to try.  I think I got the Maple Nut and Carrot Cake Clif Bars, a couple Lara Bars, and the White Chocolate Macadamia Luna Bar.  There might be a few I forgot to mention, but I’ll letchya know if I remember.  Today was another good day, food wise.  I am sending all my love to all those who are still in a deeper struggle..you just have to be strong!

Well, I am extremely stoked for this weekend….THREE DAYS OF FREEDOM. Halleluiah.  Anyone got any big plans? I know I’ll be getting my things together for next week because it’s Homecoming Spirit Week :]  Gotta love it. 

I’m gonna go get some homework done, yes I know I sound like a broken record.  Hopefully I don’t let blog surfing interfere with my academic studies….oops, I think it already has.

Thanks for all the wonderful feedback lately!

Have a great night :]

  1. That's the first thing that came to my mind... Tuesdays with Morrie. Read that book, you'll love it.

    Ms Perfectionist will do better... I know she will. Hugs!

  2. your outfit is was too cute <3

    and I adore that quote at the end of your post!
    love yeah! xo

  3. I agree with Leah ^. Actually read any of Mitch Albom's books. He's amazing.
    Yay for flip flops in Autumn. I love that outfit. That picture is one of my favorites of you. So casual and yet stylish.

    I'm the same. I get worked up about things that don't really matter. It's odd because when something terrible happens I often just get numb.

    Don't apologize, People don't read your blog for you to lie and say everything is great if it isn't. It's your honesty.

    Hope you have a great day. I love that quote!

  4. I love that quote :) I struggle a lot with perfectionism too, and I know how emotionally exhausting it is!
    Love yesterdays outfit, I bet your photo turned out great!

  5. Perfectionism is definitely one of the things that causes ED. You find yourself unable to control certain things around you - such as grades, family problems - and you instantly look for an escape. I found mine in restricting food - I could control that. I think that we all have moments when Ms. Perfectionist flares up and aggravates us. The best thing to do, I think, is to try to ignore her, or appease her. She's always there; it just seems as if she needs to be...tamed, in a way. Drowned out. Things will get better over time. :)

    And hello...three day weekend. Ms. Perfectionist can take some time off so you can have fun! I don't think I'm doing anything big, but I will try to come up with something fun. At least you'll be able to concentrate on Homecoming Spirit Week - sounds like fun! :)

  6. heyy i am so glad i found your blog!!! its always nice to meet another emily :)

    the end quote is beautiful, and i may just steal it and add it to my desk ;)
