We are coming to the end of the school year and with that, mine and Gold Glitter Pump’s project has ended. In total we raised $207! I had a lot of fun doing this project, and it was even better that I got to do it with my best friend. I learned that you really have to plan out when you are going to do things, and you have to stick those dates, or else nothing will ever get done. I also learned how to deal with other people in a polite way, even if they are extremely rude to you.
All in all I had a lot of fun with this project, and I might even continue doing it. I guess that is a really good plus to this project; that since these projects are supposed to help others and give our point of view on things, they don’t have to stop when the project is due.
Well I hope that all of you that are coming up to the end of the school year have a good time! Good luck on finals!
And I am going to put this photo in because it is from my all time favorite tv show, and it has something to do with this post. Hope you like it!
-Navy Blue Dress
Last night Navy Blue Dress and I went to this project showcase after school. You know how Navy Blue Dress and I are doing the banana bread project? Well, you got to choose what you did for you projects and the showcase was to see what other people had done for their project. We helped set up everything and afterwards people started setting their things up. The people at tables had more of a walk-around and see what each project is about and then there were also seven or so groups that presented in front of everybody. We had a lot of fun and some of the projects and people’s ideas were impressive and/or creative and fun. The only problem was that the presentations were taking too long and we had already been there for three hours not including school.
Overall, it was neat to see all of the projects and we also got extra credit for our class by doing this. We had no expectations when we went since we didn’t really know what to expect. I also had a problem, or something working in my mind because if we were to present or even be at one of the tables it seems so simple or plain to say that we make homemade banana bread, sell it door-to-door, and then donate the money. The problem is that it is so much more than that between meeting both rude and lovely people and everything that we’re learning while doing this. I didn’t know how we would be able to express that to anyone though and have them truly understand. I told Navy Blue Dress and she agreed with me and I said that we should do something bigger or something to show people its worth or even go along with our idea of selling things at school. We don’t know what to do but the awesome thing about our project is that it doesn’t ever have to stop.
If you have any ideas to help with this conundrum then it would help so much!
Be good humans.

I know that this doesn’t seem like it’ll be about banana bread or anything happy for that matter but just trust me for a moment. Recently I have been more quiet, exhausted, and anxiety ridden because my schedule is so busy that I have to try to figure out how to fit sleep in. So I am naturally enjoying the things I wouldn’t get excited about and they are what get me from day to day. I have had a few people ask me if anything was wrong or if I was mad at them and I assured them that they were not the problem. But! I cannot wait for this weekend because me and Navy Blue Dress are going to make banana bread again this weekend and even though I enjoyed it a lot before, I am incredibly excited about it and am looking forward to doing it with my best friend. Especially since it will be her birthday in 12 days! I would also really like to tell every single one of you that even though it sounds redundant and cliché, I believe in you and more importantly, believe in yourself because I know you can do it and when you believe you can do it you’re already half way there. I am also glad to say that I will have my bestie there to also make sure I don’t eat all of the banana bread before we even sell it!
Have an amazing day and got do something you love with someone you love. ❤

The time has come for another update on the project. If you have no idea what project I am talking about then Please feel free to look at the other posts about it. In the meantime let’s get down to business talking about everything that has been going on. Newsflash, there’s not much. And before you go judging and thinking that Navy Blue Dress and I don’t care about it, it’s not like that at all. You see, every weekend that we have time to make banana bread and sell it that weekend, we will do it, but lately I haven’t had the time to sell it, seriously I just came back, literally, from Las Vegas for the past four days playing volleyball for three of them and having to sound awful when I talk from yelling so much. Anyways, besides me being busy, and not to mention Navy Blue Dress as well, we do all we can to keep up since it isn’t like we don’t want to do it. To prove it to you there was even that weekend that I talked about my last project post on how I could only make the banana bread with Navy Blue Dress but not sell with her but she still wanted to sell them, and she did! So before you think that we are just lazy people saying one thing and doing another about trying to make this project work, it’s not true and I wish that I had more time to work on it.
Besides that there’s not much to tell and I would really appreciate some sleep and tea and ice on my knee. Have a really good week and try not to get caught up in the things that try to weigh us down, like homework, work, money problems, or just being busy, but try and see the happy things because you are growing older everyday and don’t look back on your life remembering all the negative but rather the happy things. . . Just a thought.
Goodbye for now.

We still aren’t don’t with The Great Gatsby in class and I only found that out after my English teacher thought it would be a good idea to have a discussion and read an article about it. We already had to do the BRAWL and that was enough, more than enough actually. I would have preferred to just have taken a test on the book instead of doing this but I am in AP so what he says goes. I would just like to politely disagree with what he says though. At least the year is half over and I can read more AP books for the AP exam next year; fun all around me. I think the more we talk about the book the more I don’t like it. It’s like setting your alarm to wake you up to your favorite song because you will hate that song really quickly since that’s what drives you to get up from your pleasant dreams and comfy sleep and wake up. I’m sure there are benefits to discussing and answering questions about The Great Gatsby in class but I think you can only analyze something so much before you don’t see any new connections or points of interests. It’s the same reason why it’s a good idea to have someone else read your essay or whatever before you turn it in since you have read it so many times that it’s hard for you to see the grammar errors and helpful hints.
It’s important to know when to move on and when it’s worth it to try something new.

Hello there! Good to see you again so soon! Sadly, I do not bring good news.
Like we have been, I am going to tell you how our english DIY project has been coming along and, well, the truth isn’t so good. Navy Blue Dress and I have put up the Google doc for people to sign up for the first food competition, which would have been today, but people just aren’t signing up. It is really heart wrenching to be so excited and ready for something like this and have it fall down flat in front of you. No matter though because we have a plan! What we plan to do is very simple. Navy Blue Dress and I will make and sell ridiculously fun and tasty treats ourselves. We were considering making things and having a competition, or rather food taste in this case, and just make it ourselves instead of waiting for nobody to sign up and do that. However, we decided against it because we’re so busy and we figured that if people weren’t even commenting about this saying they were going or even signing up then how would we know that they would show up this time. And, again, it would just waste our time and lower our spirits further.
So, thank you all for letting us talk about this with you but I guess that’s where this journey ends with us and continues with Navy Blue Dress and I. If you guys comment and like this post enough then I’ll put up some pictures of us making our recipes and maybe even put the recipes up here. I hope you guys do respond at some point though because otherwise it feels like we’re talking to a wall or an animal who just watches you while you talk and then goes back to grooming itself when your done, as if you hadn’t said a word. Or even a hot cup of coffee now going cold waiting for someone to come along and pick it up. The little things can also hurt and tear your heart a little too.
Adieu to all of you.

Happy Late Thanksgiving!
Goble Goble. Hahahahahaha. Phew, I cracked myself up I’m just that hilarious. Just kidding. Our project is coming along nicely guys and gals and I can’t wait to spend that first night with all of you lovelies! Except, I really wish that Navy Blue Dress had put up the Google doc so that you all can sign up to bring some food if you want to and the dates aren’t up there either. I think I’m going to go over right now and put them up there. In light of progress though we have made posters, well, Navy Blue Dress has and we are going to put them everywhere we can so that the event will be huge! More food the better right? I agree!
So now we have posters and we have a bunch of social media profiles and stuff but do you know how hard it is to create a Twitter or Pinterest account for this thing?? Like how do you even pin stuff about what we are doing?
That’s enough for my two second rant, thank you for letting me do that since you are so kind enough as to continue reading this but you are probably now wondering, as am I, if I’m going to take this anywhere anymore. Probably not but it’s still fun to talk with you guys.
Okay, so I’m going to go and put up the dates, and they aren’t written in stone either but if we were to change them you guys will be given plenty of notice. Go and look at them and hopefully they will work perfectly with your busy busy schedule and then you can come eat some food with us! Just remember that if you do plan on making something please make sure you sign up and tell us so that we can know about how many tables and how much food is going to be there.
Parting is such sweet sorrow! I refuse to say goodbye in hopes that we will talk again soon!

Hello my Darlings!
How are you? Well I hope you guys are having fabulous weekends, even though it’s just about over. But I am so excited about the project that Navy Blue Dress and I are working on together! I was really glad and excited when she asked if we should just work together. But that’s not even the best part because I wanted to make sure that she knew we could do either of our ideas but it made me feel special and loved when she was all “no, I really like your idea and I would like to do it with you”. Hahahaha. I sound so dopey but it was one of those cute bestie moments that you giggle at and smile hopelessly. Well, the project is coming together nicely because I could tell that when we started this it was going to be a lot to put together, an trust me it is, but it’s a good crazy. So far we have made a Pinterest account, a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a page on here, which you should totally go and look at it. If you’re curious at what the project is, or don’t know what I’m talking about then go and look at the home page an click the page that says “Eat To Cure”. As far as dates go we only have tentative dates right now which we’ll put up on the page so you guys can see them. I say tentative because for one, we don’t really know how many people show up (I hope we get to see a lot of you there and finally meet some of you beautiful people) and we don’t know if we’ll be busy on the days that we chose either. If we do change dates though we will definitely give you guys tons of notice in advance so that all of you can still come and be apart of this really exciting thing. I’ll put the links to all of our separate pages on this post and the page so that you guys can find out more about this and join us even. You don’t have to make anything, just come down, have some good food with awesome people and maybe even some coffee.
I really hope to meet some our you lovely people, it would seriously like make my life, not just day, but life. If there’s not enough of you guys on the first one then we won’t be able to do it any longer. Navy Blue Dress and I will still have fun making our own food and selling it but it’s still so neat to share this with all of you.
Here are the links to the different social media sites I told you that we have created. Take a look, follow or like them, and share this experience with us because it will only make it more special and better.
