The Freshman Diaries : Entry 1

Since this is primarily a teen blog, I thought that today I would start my Freshman Diary. I really wanted to document my year and what better way to do it then a blog that I love?!

Today was “open house”. I met my teachers and found my classes.

Let’s go over the school campus first, okay? I have three buildings that I have to walk between. My homeroom/Bible is in the first building, then Algebra 1, and then I have 5 minutes to get to the other building and my English class. Then 5 minutes to get to Science, 5 minutes to get to PE(and change), and then only a 20 minute lunch. Then 5 minutes to get to Econ Class, and then Chorus (in another building). Lastly, I have to leave the building for chorus, walk through the building I was in for my main classes, and then the building I started with. 5 minutes between each class. Whew, can you say a workout?!

My first impressions of my teachers:
HR/Bible – she seems sweet but we didn’t have a lot of time to talk.
Algebra 1 – I think I’ll really like his class. He counts homework as a completion grade too.
English – I didn’t get to meet my English teacher but everyone says she is really nice.
Physical Science – This lady is my grandmothers next door neighbor, and is really nice! She reminds me of Ms. Frizzle!
P.E. – I didn’t get to meet my P.E. teacher either.
Econ – This teacher is new, so we can both relate to each other. He was very nice. I always love Social Studies classes so hopefully I will enjoy his class.

Students :
I’m working really hard on not judging others by their appearance. A few people did remind me of other kids, but I didn’t sit in a classroom and meet anybody. I didn’t talk to any other students.

By the way, in my science class, there are two other girls but then it’s all boys. Boys + no drama = happy Olivia.

All in all, I’m hoping this year will be good. We will just have to see.

Love y’all. xoxo, Olivia

What’s On My iPhone?

Hello everyone! I just got a brand new iPhone (the lock button on my old one was broken. Yay for 2 year warranty!) so I got to redownload some apps and some new ones! I still haven’t gotten my music back on it yet, but all my apps are up and running. Woohoo!

Home Screen

First is my home screen. I never really swipe over to the other side because I don’t have that many apps.

The apps from left to right starting from the top are:

camera, clock, mail, weather, settings, notes, maps, calendar, photos, safari, pinterest, games, photography, calculator, Pandora, and snapchatthe bottom four are instagram, music, messages, and twitter

game folder

This is very lame isn’t it? I only have two games! I am more entertained by music. But I have tap-tap revenge and temple run 2.

photography folder

Alright, here is my favorite folder. My photo editing apps. I have Pic Jointer, Squaready, Bezel, Camera Awesome, Typic, and BokehCamFX.

pic jointer

This is Pic Jointer. There are a lot of different frames. You can change the size of the frames and if you want rounded edges or not.

squaready

This is a little app called Squaready. If you are on Instagram then you have probably seen people put their photos surrounded by white. I use the app for that. The best part is it’s free! (P.S. my friend Cassidy’s hair is GORGEOUS)

bezel

If you have ever wondered how to get shapes around a picture, the app Bezel is what you are looking for. You can put hearts around it, or other shapes too!

typic

Now this app is definitely one of my favorites. You can put words on it, can put different effects on it, and even blur the picture. It’s a really fun app!

bokehcamfx

I would always see people put little glowing hearts on their pictures and I wanted to know how. I found this app that let’s you put the hearts where you want so you can customize your picture. You can even put little circles on it and change the color. If you want to get the pro version, you get more glowing shapes.

homescreen2

This is what you see when you swipe to the right of my main screen.  I never use these apps, so they just stay hidden back there. It’s just the basics.

What are your favorite iPhone apps? Let me know in the comments!

Am I Going To Die?

Now I know what you’re thinking. Duh, Olivia. Of course you’re going to die at some point.

But I’m talking about an emotional death. A brain death. A social death. You may have heard of this before. It’s called

 

High School.

Yep. High school. The next four miserable years of my life start in exactly one week and I am terrified. Not only am I going to be a freshman, but I’m going to be a freshman at a new private school! AND we have to wear khakis (loose-fitting, by the way) or dresses that come down to the knee. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like social torture.

I know one person in my grade and I probably don’t have any classes with them, so that sucks.

If you can give me any advice, it would really help! Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing your experiences. (:
