stopping and smelling the flowers
Here is a photo I took accidentally on purpose of me looking at flowers. abigaillookingatthings.tumblr.com? Anyone? Anyone? The accidental part is that I happened to be looking at flowers when this photo was taken, rather than at the camera. The on purpose part is that I took the photo of myself. And in case you’re wondering where these alleged flowers are, they’re out of the view...
Real Store Reviews from a Real Person
People always ask me where I get my clothes, then ask me to expound upon the prices, durability, sizing, and style of the clothes in the stores that I name. Kids at school ask me how I afford my clothes. When I tell them that I don’t shop at Bergdorf Goodman or Barneys or any place like that, but rather at thrift stores or lower end places, they ask me how I find such things. As a response...
Anonymous asked: How the hell are you not famous?
Anonymous asked: Hey, I know that this isn't really a question, but I just wanted to tell you that you are incredible. I see you in school everyday and I am kind of friends with you, and even though we aren't that close, every time you smile at me and wave, it makes my day. You inspire me to want to express and be myself and I just wanted to tell you to never change, keep it up, and thank you for being...

Perseverance in Old Man and the Sea and The Road
This is an English essay I wrote comparing and contrasting Santiago from Old Man and the Sea and the man from The Road. If you wanted to read it and tell me what you thought, well, I would like that.[[MORE]] Perseverance, or the willingness to endure rough times, is an admirable trait, though it always elicits a question: Why? Every instance of perseverance is sparked by a different...

What I did over April vacation
I’ve been toying around with some Holga film lately and have been doing double exposures of flowers and random other objects. If you’re seeing this post on the Tumblr dashboard, go to my actual blog for bigger pictures.Vinca and my face Forsythias, my face, and my neighbors’ house A pansy and a daffodil and an American flag Ornamental cabbage and a streetlight ...
Sometimes I wish I could tip employees in stores, just like you can tip waiters in restaurants. People mainly focus on rude employees who seem to hate their job and don’t want to have anything to do with the customers, but nobody really pays attention to the ones who do a good job. Yesterday I was at the mall with my mom buying socks, undergarments, things like that. For some reason...
Boston Marathon 2012
I watched the Boston Marathon today from around the 12 mile mark in Wellesley, which is nice because you can yell to runners that they’re almost half way there. Throngs of runners Major props to these soldiers for running the marathon in full gear. Sure, they walked part of the way, but the point remains: they traveled 26.2 miles, something most people can’t do in shorts and...
Oh my god there are cemeteries on either side of the road right now help me
My parents are driving around Newport right now trying to figure out how to get to the bridge that gets us home. This is seriously like a game of mapcrunch. My mom: “How on earth do people here, like, get places? It’s like Twilight Zone.”
Yesterday I was in the bathroom at school and I noticed the words REBEL GIRL scraped into the paint of the bathroom wall. My first thought was, “Aw, looks like there are some Kathleen Hanna fans at my school that I didn’t know about.” Then I realized that the whole wall was covered with riot grrrl expressions like “RIOT NOT DIET.” The words “RIOT GRRRL”...
In my last post, I forgot to mention the donut pin I made! If people want, I’ll make a DIY, but I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. Just message me.
Third Stone from the Sun
It took me a while to realize this, but aliens and ghosts really mean the same thing to me, if that makes any sense. I think they mean the same thing for everyone; they’re something that nobody can prove or may ever be able to prove, but people believe in them nonetheless, like an unholy religion. I feel the same excited incredulity whether I play the Ouija board to contact spirits or use...
sards asked: You're kind of the coolest person I've found on tumblr.
Anonymous asked: i really hope you know the person who asked how many followers you have, or that you were kidding or something and i just don't get it, because otherwise your response was really bitchy.
I went to Freshman Banquet last week and it was actually a lot of fun. My outfit cost me no more than six dollars; the dress was free (a friend picked it up for me at a prom/banquet dress drive because it happened to fit AND happened to be really pretty), the vintage shoes were six dollars at a thrift sore, and I got the sweater and the little necklace thingy ages ago. Oh! I found the purse in my...
