my new favorite song. owl city = love.

okay, so the title of this post has nothing to do with the actual post.

i’m getting my hair done monday! yay! I finally think I decided what I want to do. i’m beyond stoked. sorry for the lack of proper grammar, i’m lazy.

big week ahead of me. monday i’m getting my hair cut and dyed, tuesday and wednesday i work, then thursday is warped tour! so freakin’ stoked. i wish owl city was on the tour though, that would be beyond magnificent.



my bad, i couldn’t control myself.

i forgot what i was talking about… OH YEAH, WARPED TOUR! i’m hoping for cool and sunny weather, but since it’s july in wisconsin, my wish most likely won’t be granted. these are the times that i wish i had that genie from aladdin. that would be kickass…

i’ll post pictures of my hair on monday if i get the time(:

this is the part where you find out who you are.

to hell with your new shit, and whether or not you think you fit in.

-The Maineee(:

I’m becoming a new person. I don’t care about materialistic things anymore, and quite frankly, I don’t care about 3/4 of the people I talked to before. All I care about is being happy, and pleasing myself. After graduation, I realized who is really there for me, and who really cares. I realized that I need to grow up, and stop thinking about others so much.

It didn’t really hit me until this morning, when I was looking at my ex-boyfriend’s myspace page and I realized just how much I don’t like him. I realized that I let him hurt me because I worried about people thinking about me. I don’t anymore, and I’m happier than ever.

I’m rethinking moving to England right after high school graduation, because I think I need to be with my family. We’re having a new baby, moving into a new house, and I’m going to have a new stepmom and stepsister. It’s surreal. I don’t know what to do about that.

Anyway, if you’re getting stressed about everything coming down on you, just sit back and think about who and what you really need. Idid, and not only is a huge weight lifted from my shoulders, but I’m happier than ever. I highly reccomend it(:

I’m so sick of the heat.

23 Jun

It is over 90 degrees here in Wiscosin, currently. I know, Nate, its nothing compared to your heat in Arizona. 

I’ve met some of the best people lately, and I’m really happy with the life I’ve been living. I’m closer to my family, and friends, and I’m making more friends online than ever. I truly love the fact that I can open up to people online without worrying that they’re going to go and tell my friends. As scary as this seems, I feel like I can trust some people that I meet online more than those that I know in real life.

Like Nate, for example. This boy makes me smile huge, and I can tell him ANYTHING. He’s one of my best friends, and he doesn’t even know it. He listens to me and makes me laugh, and thats what a true friend is, if you ask me.

Basically, what I’m trying to say, is that MySpace, Stickam, Facebook, and WordPress have changed my outlook on so many things recently. I suggest you get an account and open your mind, too.

I absolutely love summer. I’m going to make this summer one to remember, too. I think its a good thing to do, considering it may be the last time I’ll EVER see anyone from Burdick. It’s kind of scary, if you think about it. I mean, it’s the big time now. No more hiding behind Daddy for my mistakes; its all me. I’m not in elementary school anymore. People are starting to see me as an adult, and accept my visuals on things. In 4 years, I’ll be able to vote, buy a house, have contracts in my own name, and have accounts in my own name. I’ve always wanted to grow up, but, now that it’s happening, I almost want to stay a kid. I’m scared that I won’t be able to do what’s neccessary to live in the “real world.” One mistake, that’s all it could take to mess it all up. I really need to think about what I want to do with my life now. I need to think about college, and saving money, in order to survive on my own in just a few short years. I need to realize what’s best for me, and stop trying to please other people.

Its scary to think that all of this is happening so fast. I’ll be classified as an adult soon, and I’m scared of that. I don’t want everything to fall on me. I mean, I can get married in a few years. I can make vital life decisions, and I’m scared.

I’m also excited though, because with all of this responsibility, comes the ability to control my own life. I will be able to decide what I want, go where I want to go, and do what I want to do. I’ll be able to see who I want to see, and say what I want to say. It’ll be great.

“Take time to contemplate who you are, and where

you want to go.”

I said I would keep up my blog,

13 Jun

And so I follow through. Although, now that I’ve graduated… ha, Skonecki, I am going to post whatever I please on here. So, it will be a bit more interesting(:

So far, even though I’ve only really been on summer break for like a day, its going good. Graduation was really great. My dress worked out good, my hair looked great, and my makeup looked better than I expected. I didn’t get the whole year honor roll thing, but whateverrr.

After graduation I went over by my aunt’s with Amanda for a little while. We ate and ate and ate and ate, then we went in the hot tub, haha. After we left, which was at around 7, we went up to Airport Park. We were supposed to just hang out with Nick, but he was running late- naughty, naughty, Nick- and we called Brandon. Brandon and Amanda and I were walking up to Taco Bell, when we ran into Dakota, a girl I used to go to school with. We ended up calling Hayden, and walking around with him. My night was… interesting to say the least.

But, I’m super duper excited for summer. I plan on accomplishing all of my goals, and working ridiculously hard on grasping the concept of macro photography. I also have 8 hours… at least, a  day where I can sit at home and do nothing. Fun, eh? But I’m getting paid $50 a week to babysit my little brother, who just wants to be outside all the time. It should be a piece of cake.

excitment! (:

It started on Friday, and I just had my friend Lizzy sleepover since I couldn’t leave the house. We watched movies, ate, and had a campfire with my dad and Jenny. It was pretty coooool(:

But Saturday is when all the excitement went down! I woke up to a call from my dad saying “Whatever you do, don’t let Sam leave the house right now.”

This, of course, freaked me out beyond belief so I started panicking and asking what was going on. All he told me was that there was a bunch of cops outside with guns. MORE PANIC!

So, Sam stayed asleep and me and Lizzy were just freaking out in the house. Then a knock came on the door, and it was a Wauwatosa policeman. I remember his words exactly:

“Maam, you need to stay in your house, because there is a man in the building across from you with a loaded weapon. In order to keep you safe, we have SWAT teams positioned in various places all over the complex. If anything further occurs, you need to leave.”


So we just waited, and watched. Turns out, that Wauwatosa, Cudahy, Oak Creek, South Milwaukee, Milwaukee, West Milwaukee, Greendale, Greefield, and Glendale and all sent their police forces to help us out.

We ended up being held in our apartment building until about 11 AM.

Turns out, that our neighbor, Andre, had shot at his girlfriend’s van 5 times, and continued to shoot off shots at various times throughout the morning. He then barricaded himself in his apartment and had a standoff with all those policemen. Smart, eh?

locker cleaning…

1 Jun

I say that we should be able to hire a cleaning crew, because my locker sure does need it. I’m currently not sure what’s living in there…

ANYWHOOO, I was walking with my friends this weekend, and we went to Sheridan Park with my dog. While we were there, we walked past the pool, and there was a guy filling it up. I was completely shocked, and so I asked why it was so early. Apparently, they fill it earlier than this usually, but they got back ordered on the chemicals, and I’ve been being lied to this entire time!

Oh, and I downloaded the acoustic version of “Six Feet Under The Stars” and it is my new favorite song. Nothing you bring me can top it… nothing(:

save the drama fo’ yo mamma(:

27 May

I don’t really care about everyone’s drama. I’m pretty sick of everyone at this school starting stuff with everyone. This school is too filled with drama.

Oh; and I find it funny how everybody always is against one person, in their mind, when that one person has been being “bogus” for over 2 years! Funny funny funny!

I hate this school.

8 May

And right now, I pretty much hate everything. There are people here who have um… pretended to be someone’s friend, and then gone and sabotaged everything they have for their own personal happiness. Obviously, these people are two faced and don’t know how to be a real friend.

Its pretty sad, if you think about it, that in the last month of school, people need to do things like this. It really upsets me. How immature do you have to be?

I understand that this is going to happen throughout my life, but still, its really bothering me, especially since I was one of the few that befriended one of the people who are doing this when nobody else would.


8 Apr

Its really quite terrifying how some of my friends are talking about suicide so much lately. One of them is in love with someone who doesn’t love them back, another is being bullied, another just wants a friend; its scary. I really don’t think these people realize how much of an impact they have on my life. They mean the world to me, and if someone could just get through to them, they could save their life.

Its horrifying to know that just a few months ago, one of these people was happy-go-lucky, had a girlfriend, and had their entire life ahead of them. I’m really scared for you guys. I don’t want to lose you. I just want to be able to get through to you, no matter what it takes. Please, listen.
