Such is Life

In a perfect world…

there would be as many hours in a day as necessary

a blogger wouldn’t go weeks at a time without writing a quality post

her Nikon camera would always be strapped around her shoulders just begging to be used

a Google reader wouldn’t have 700+ posts marked “unread”

a junior in high school wouldn’t spend her last two days of summer vacation babysitting 19 hours (even if it was SUPER fun and with a very sweet girl.. but if school started on Thursday that would be perfect, k?)

5:00 a.m. wake-up calls would not exist

she would be caught up on “Love in the Wild” (on episode 5. newest addiciton)

diet soda wouldn’t have artificial flavorings/preservatives

DVR’s would be near-empty as she would have time to sit down, chill, and watch her favorite show(s)

all gyms would be open 24 hours a day

the stair-master would have a personal T.V.

And lastly.. 

there would be no such thing as “back to school”

But, such is life. So we take a deep breath, re-focus, and move on. 

Junior year starts tomorrow. I’m excited for it to come so it can go and I can finally be a SENIOR!

Love to you all. 

Fill in the blank: In a perfect world, _____.


  1. Oh girl, I hear ya. My Google reader had 700+ earlier today as well. I’m down to 523 right now, haha!

  2. I don’t think I could ever muster up the courage to read 700 posts on my Google reader! haha Yay for senior year, you’re gonna have so much fun, enjoy every second of it girl!! 😀
    In a perfect world, alarm clocks wouldn’t exist and there would be an insane abundance of apples 😉

  3. I totally agree with Alexander’s comment. (;

  4. Good luck with everything hun! You are such an inspiring, intelligent, and sweet young woman… you’re going to amazing this year and for years to come. These next 2 years are going to fly by for you – PROMISE! So try to enjoy them as much as possible and keep living life to its fullest.


    In a perfect world, nothing would cost money (coming from a broke college student haha!).

  5. oh wow I never realized you’re in high school! You must’ve maxed out the SAT Writing exam — you write WAY beyond your age/education level! Awesome.

  6. Junior year was a good one! Senior year is better.. definitely something to look forward too 🙂 In a perfect world we wouldn’t have to go to school, work, or do things we didn’t like. ::sigh:: if only!

  7. in a perfect world …. colleges would just give me my master’s degree and i would be done with it! and full time jobs would only last 15 hours a week so that i could spend all my time hiking, biking, and enjoying the sunshine … and it would be sunshine all year long! 🙂

  8. I can definitely agree with all of those! I was addicted to love in the wild, wish it wasn’t over already!!

    you are going to rock your junior year and then you’ll rule the school as a big bad senior, woop woop!

  9. Awww I’m so happy I’ve come accross your blog here, fitness, faith, food and fun…I’m going to have to become a regular! In a perfect world, everyone would find their other half and stay in love forever <3..if only haha

  10. I totally agree with number one! I need some extra hours right now. 🙂

  11. SO true! I wish their was more time in a day!!!!

  12. ah senior year! good luck, it will go by so fast!!
    google reader can be so intimidating! haha

  13. gluck with your school work load!!! 🙂

  14. In a perfect world I would love my job every day, and make about twice as much 🙂 But hey, the world is close to perfect when it comes to my job, so I can’t complain.
    Don’t wish for your junior year to pass too fast, because before you know it college will be over, and trust me, those are some of the BEST years!! ENJOY!

  15. oh i would have hit read all on that reader and started fresh. Your busy livin’ life! Back to school is only good for one day, right? haha.

  16. this may be one of my all time favorite posts. 🙂

    in a perfect world, I would have money to go out and do more “New Yorky” things and have an apartment in the East Village.

    Guess it all takes time though to get what we want!

  17. creamy pb think thin bars are my fav, paired alongside with french vanilla yogurt ♥ so so so good! I agree with more time for sure!
