Book Review: Mosquitoland

Hey everyone! Today, I am going to review the book Mosquitoland by David Arnold. Originally, I heard of this book because my friends who are in my school's book club told me about it. I didn't want to buy this book because I thought that I can probably borrow from many people because I believe this book is now a best seller. I saw this book in the Lost & Found auction at my school and decided that it was time to read it.




Synopsis from Goodreads:

I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange.

After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the "wastelands" of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.

So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.

Told in an unforgettable, kaleidoscopic voice, Mosquitoland is a modern American odyssey, as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.


My Thoughts:
   
 I really liked Mosquitoland because it was quick, fun read and it kept me hooked. I was doing a summer camp for a week, and every morning and afternoon I would read this book. It took me about four days to finish because I was so interested in it.

The plot, basically, is a sixteen year old girl wants to get from Mississippi ("Mosquitoland") to Cleveland to go see her mother. The main character has been through a lot in the last year; her parents were divorced, her father remarries, and her mother has a "sickness" that isn't uncovered until later in the book. Mim has a very active imagination throughout the whole story, and most people in her life are afraid she is borderline schizophrenic which makes her point of view even better. Mim is a tomboy who loves Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Talking Heads (*the band*). She is the narrator od the whole story and makes many references to musicians, especially when she is on her journey.The thing I found annoying about the main character is that she is too rash, and spends most of the book hating adults. To be fair though she deals with some very bad characters on her journey i.e a child molester and other characters. Also you don't find out about why she runs away until the last few chapters of the book. One other thing I don't like about Mim is that she caused a rather serious injury to herself (I'm not saying what because I won't spoil it) a few years back and she told no one. Overall, Mim is a great character though because she brings to life some of the plots of the book that would have been boring without her version of the story. 

Many of the characters have stories that aren't fully developed, but the reader meets more teenage runaways. It's bit frustrating at times to read because the characters either lie a lot about who they are or they don't get to the point very fast. Even the main character, Mim, gets frustrated when people take too long to answer. Most of the adult characters are written as villains with the exception of a few that Mim changes her opinions on. 

I really liked the book, and it was very quick to read. I feel like the plot is so unique that once you get past the first few pages, you'll be absolutely hooked. I recommend this book as a summer read for when you are just relaxing by a pool or have some free time. 

Some Favorite Quotes:
“I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange.” 


 “Every great character, Iz, be it on page or screen, is multidimensional. The good guys aren't all good, the bad guys aren't all bad, and any character wholly one or the other shouldn't exist at all. Remember this when I describe the antics that follow, for though I am not a villain, I am not immune to villainy.”

“When you were born, you cried while the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries while you rejoice.”  

“I swear the older I get, the more I value bad examples over good ones. It's a good thing too, because most people are egotistical, neurotic, self-absorbed peons, insistent on wearing near-sighted glasses in a far-sighted world. And it's this exact sort of myopic ignorance that has led to my groundbreaking new theory. I call it Mim's Theorem of Monkey See Monkey Don't, and what it boils down to is this: it is my belief that there are some people whose sole purpose of existence is to show the rest of how not to act.”

“As simple as it sounds, I think understanding who you are—and who you are not—is not the most important thing of all Important Things.” 

Questions: Have you read this book? What did you think of it?

OOTD: 4th of July 2017

Hey everyone! I count Independence Day as the beginning of Summer (so does most of America I suppose), and I was able to spend the day with some friends. The 4th of July is filled with American Flags, Barbeques, music, and tons of memes. On television, there was a hotdog eating contest at Coney Island. A few of my friends and I went to a roof top to watch the sunset before going to the East River to watch fireworks.



                                             My outfit:
                                             One shoulder dress- American Eagle Outfitters
                                             Shoes - Adidas Stan Smiths $60


We waited for the firework show to start for over an hour and I might've been so annoying to the people around me that a couple moved away from my friends and I. My reasoning was that it was a public place so it was completely fine for me to start clapping when the show started or when any bright colors came. My friends and I might've also sang songs like: Party in the USA, Firework, and I'm Proud to Be an American...


When we are on the rooftop, we had a view of the whole entire city. The sunset was super beautiful, and it felt like a perfect summer night.


                                         Here's a picture of Aubrey and I sitting on the roof.




It was very nice to see my friends and spend this holiday with them.

I hope all my Americans out there had a nice Independence Day. Although the country isn't perfect, it was a day to celebrate the freedoms our country was based off and acknowledge that we have ton more work to do. I was glad to spend it with my friends.

Happy 4th of July (one day late!)

                                                                      xx

What It Means to Be an Ally + PRIDE PARADE

Hey everyone! Happy Pride Day! If you don't know what Pride Day is...it's the one day a year where people of all sexualities and gender identities are celebrated. This day came around a few decades ago, but with the legalization of gay marriage and a greater acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community Pride Day has become even bigger. In New York City, 5th avenue is shut down for the day for a parade with rainbows and loud music. This was my first time taking part in this celebration even though I am not part of this community. I identify as heterosexual and cisgender (which means I am straight and fine with the sex I was given at birth), and many people who are like me feel like they can't go to LGBTQ+ events. The thing is... if you are an ally then you can go to these events as long as you are supportive of the group that has their event.
      Being an ally basically means that you support and advocate for groups of people who are discriminated or have a different life than you. I've talked about this before, but as a feminist I advocate for gender equality on all concepts. I go to marches, protests, and parades in order to show my support to a group of people. Communities want to be supported and as long as you aren't telling people how to live their lives, you'll mostly be accepted as an ally. For example, I am not part of the LGBTQ+ community, but today I wore the colors of their flags and cheered amongst people of all genders and sexualities. The beauty of this day is that everyone is accepting of each other.





Also I learned quite a bit about the different flags that this community has. The gay pride flag (the one that is the around me) is one of the most famous flags for this community, but I learned their are a few more. My friend, Bree (featured above), gave me the gender queer flag (that I will be putting up in my room), and gave my other friend the trans flag. Below is a chart showing all the different flags for the community:

Today was really fun because I got to see people of all races come together to support the LGBTQ+ community. We still live in times where people are discriminated for a variety of reasons, but today it was nice to see people show support for a community that has been marginalized for a long time. I believe that everyone should be supported and built up instead of torn down. Love is Love and everyone deserves to be loved no matter who it is.

Here are some pictures from today:

 If you haven't noticed I dyed half my head dark blue about 10 days ago. I hope to have it dyed for the whole Summer because I am not allowed to have it for school. My shirt and shorts are from American Eagle Outfitters. My tinted sunglasses are from Urban Outfitters (I am so obsessed with them!).
                               Here is Bree, Amayah, and I with our different flags!
           The streets were filled with other allies which I thought was pretty great.


The streets were filled for over 30 streets with different flags, posters, and people.


I hope you liked this post. Let me know what you think in the comments!
 I am officially done with my junior of high school, and I am free to write for the Summer. I will have more posts up in the next few weeks, and I am glad to be back in the blogging community!

Happy Pride Day!

GOOD V18ES!? + FOUR YEARS OF BLOGGING

Hey everyone! I guess you could tell I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus recently. Last month I was in my school's rendition of The Little Mermaid. I had practices four days a week, and I was in about five number (Under the Sea being a personal favorite). This month I turned 17, went to Smorgasburg (a food festival that goes through the whole summer), went to the Women's Foundation Breakfast, went to two semi-formals, visited to Rhode Island, and had a ton of tests and quizzes. Next week I have three finals, an SAT, and an ACT. Basically my life has been pretty busy lately between outside activities, test prep, and school work. I am not trying to make excuses, but I really need to start budgeting my time better (I say that while I have a test to study for and finals oops). I know I've said this a million times, but for the Summer I will be updating a lot (especially since I will be in New York for almost the whole time).

First thing I wanted to mention in this post is that I have been blogging on This Fashion Girl for four years now. May 3, 2013 I created this blog and it's crazy that I still continue with it four years later. Blogging is something I really love to do, and I have made some pretty cool blogger friends because of it. What I've learned in the past four years of having a website is that as long as you love doing something, it doesn't matter what other people think. Something in particular that has happened many times is that people have made fake accounts under names like "unknown," "anonymous,"and even "ThisFashionGirl4," in order to comment/ takeover my account. As annoying as that is, I have learned to ignore things like that because I am part of a very supportive community of bloggers that build each other up. This website, for me, has been a way to keep in order things I have done and talk about things I like to do. Having a website has been a part of who I am for four years now, and I plan to continue doing this in the years to come.

Next thing I wanted to talk about in this post is about "good vibes." Next year, I will be a senior in high school (I was only in seventh grade when I started on here), and each year the rising senior class gets to have a party and pick a name for their senior year. My class is called the class of good v18es.  Since that is a big part of my classes' identity, I just wanted to touch upon the importance of having "good vibes." My class had a kind of hippie theme going on for our party (pics below), but our decorations included pride flags and peace signs. Especially in current times, I feel like we, as people, focus so much on bring negativity to others. We point out things we don't like instead of things we do. There's just so much hate in the world. We get stuck in our own heads with opinions, and don't listen to others. We judge so many people for things that they can't change such as sexuality, race, ethnicity, and location. Having good vibes just means working towards something better, and trying not to be negative. I, personally, love the term because it's a way of promoting peace, justice, and inclusion.

Here are some photos from my classes' party:






I am going to try to post in the next week (but finals might get the best of me), but once school is out in two weeks I will be posting everything I missed in the last two months + the whole summer of 2017.

Thank you for FOUR wonderful years of This Fashion Girl, and I can't wait for so many more.

                                                                             xx

Prom Season WishList




Millybridal prom dresses

Hey everyone! It's officially prom season, and although I am not going to prom this year I am excited for all the styles. I am going to semi-formal this year, but right now I am going to talk about prom.  MillyBridal UK is a clothing store in London that specializes in bridal dresses and prom dresses.  They have a ton of options for prom including some vintage prom dresses! I am absolutely obsessed, so I compiled a bunch of prom dresses that I would put on my wishlist.

1. Scoop Neck Black Tulle Elastic Woven Satin Appliques Lace Long Sleeve Two Piece Prom Dress

This year, "two piece" dresses are the hottest type of dress on the market. The skirt part goes higher than your hips, and the top part usually stops at the rib cage. The only skin that really shows is a few inches of stomach. I find these type of dresses are 1) really classy and 2) makes you look taller. I am only 5'3, so usually I stay far away from long dresses, but I feel this dress would be an exception.

2.  V-neck Tulle Floor-length Appliques Lace Princess Unique Prom Dresses

 http://uk.millybridal.org/product/v-neck-tulle-floor-length-appliques-lace-princess-unique-prom-dresses-ukm020102479-17376.html

This dress reminds me of a princess who lives in the forest from a fairytale. First of all I love he way the top half dips down, and how their is something that causes the waste to cinch. I also like how the dress is flowy because it further goes with the whole "princess" look. The dress is 135 euros, which is a pretty good deal for a dress that gorgeous.


3. Backless Ball Gown Satin Tulle Floor-length Beading Elegant Halter Prom Dresses

http://uk.millybridal.org/product/backless-ball-gown-satin-tulle-floor-length-beading-elegant-halter-prom-dresses-ukm020102391-19545.html
This dress is so beautiful! Do you see the color of the bottom half? What is unique about this dress is that it's a halter dress which is very sleek and elegant. This is definitely a dress that would cause head turns at prom.

4. Scoop Neck Chiffon Tulle Sweep Train Pearl Detailing A-line Fashion Prom Dresses
http://uk.millybridal.org/product/scoop-neck-chiffon-tulle-sweep-train-pearl-detailing-a-line-fashion-prom-dresses-ukm020102441-19580.html

If you know me, then you know my favorite color is turquoise/teal, and so I obviously had to include a dress in that color. I especially like the detailing of the pearls on the top, and the "necklace". I am a fan of flowy dresses, so this is such a perfect dress for prom!

I hope you liked this post! Are you going to prom this year? What are your favorite prom dress styles? 

Also, definitely checkout UK MillyBridal (linked above).

Sorry I haven't posted in a month, but get ready for upcoming posts from semi, my birthday, and some spring adventures!

A Day in Washington D.C.

Hey everyone! This week has been so busy for me. I started the week off in Boston, Massachusetts for three days and two nights. Then on Thursday I headed to Washington D.C for two days and one  night. What's the reason for all of my traveling this week? College Tours! It's cool that I get to visit all of these new places, but it's just so tiring. So, today and yesterday I visited two colleges and did some wandering of my country's capital.

This is mostly a photo post...but oh well! I need to go back to Washington D.C. because I really want to see the Smithsonian Museum.


 Here are some of the monuments and places I saw in this city.

 There was some official business going on in The White House when I was there, so unfortunately this is as close I could get to the building. For some reason I pictured The White House with more privacy to roam. It was cool nonetheless to see where the presidents of the United States have lived.

 This is the Eisenhower Executive Office Building which is the biggest building I've ever seen. It's huge! The whole building is filled with different details, but the architecture is identical no matter where you look on the building.  This building has a long history and many presidents have handled official business in it. 

This is the Washington Monument. It commemorates the first President of the United States... George Washington (who also appears on our one dollar bills).

Later on...


My family and I ate at a restaurant called "Founding Farmers", it's a pun on the term "founding fathers." The restaurant was so good! We originally weren't going to go in, but it was worth it. I had fish and chips.

 Later on, we stopped at an ice cream store called "Captain Cookie and The Milkman". Basically you have a choice of eight different cookies, and ten different ice cream flavors and you order an ice cream sandwich. I ordered Cookies N' Cream between chocolate chip cookies. The cookies were warm and it was delicious. It's a big ice cream sandwich, but it was a nice way to end a week of college touring.

I hope you liked this post! 
Have you ever been to Washington D.C?

OOTD: Golden Gate Park

Hey everyone! It's been awhile. This month I have traveled to California, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C. In California, I was able to visit San Francisco, Monterrey, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbra with my singing group from school. On the second day of the trip we visited Golden Gate Park and did a whole tour of the city of San Francisco.

Here is my OOTD:


My Outfit:
Bomber Jacket- American Eagle 
Floral Shirt - American Eagle
Ripped Jamie Jeans - Top Shop
Sneakers - Adidas Superstars 

I've been super obsessed with bomber jackets, and I finally was able to buy one! Mine was on clearance from American Eagle and cost about 36 dollars.

         My friends and I took so many pictures by the Golden Gate Bridge because it was so sunny and beautiful that day. New York has been rainy and cold, and the sunshine was a change. I'm always unprepared for the weather when I go on trips, so there I was in long sleeves when it was very warm out.

I've been to San Francisco before ( you can check out that post here ) when I was 15, but this time I got to see even more and be with my friends. The Golden Gate Bride was so pretty, and interesting to learn about. Did you know that it was originally supposed to be painted black and yellow?

 After visiting the Golden Gate Bridge we went to Sausalito (more photos coming soon). I was trying not to be too "tourist-y" but I had to take photos in from of the Golden Gate Bridge!

 Check out my friend Nina (featured above!) on her blog: http://rainyday-writer.blogspot.com/

Lastly, this bomber jacket is officially my favorite jacket. The details of flowers on the back make it more unique. I like this jacket because it goes with any type of outfit especially jeans or leggings. I usually pair it with solid colors because then more attention goes to the jacket.

I am so sorry that I haven't been posting. I am on Spring Break, and I've been college touring. I know it's not an excuse to not be updating, but I have been motivated to blog again because more interesting things have been happening. Thanks for the support with this blog! I can't believe it's been almost 4 years!!

                                                                             xx

Book Review: The Unexpected Everything

Hey everyone! I recently read the book The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. I am a fan of this author because I've read half of her books. Last year I read Since You've Been Gone, and what I particularly like about these books is how they are cute love stories that take place in the Summer. There is obviously conflict among the characters and such, but it's a very light read.

Synopsis from GoodReads:

Andie had it all planned out. When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future. Important internship? Check. Amazing friends? Check. Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).

But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life. Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that
?

My Thoughts:

At first this book seems like it would be very long due to the extensive number of pages, and the hard cover, but the story goes so fast. Lately, I've read some books filled with heavy drama, and I needed a nice story that was more realistic to me. Also, it's the middle of the winter here, so I needed to be reminded what Summer was like.

The main character, Andy, at first seems very snobby. She talks about how she only dates guys for three weeks, and then breaks up with them. Since her father is a congressman, she is always super organized and it gets to a point where she is very anal about everything. The beginning of the book is her freaking out about her summer program, and how she has to have a plan for everything. I really didn't like her mentality. Once a twist of fate happens and she ends up staying in Connecticut for the Summer; her whole demeanor changes. The first time I started liking her was when she starts getting into a routine with her new job (you can see from the cover that it's dog walking). As the book goes on, Andy broadens her horizons with new experiences and that's definitely due to the boy she meets named Clark.

I am not a big fan of the other characters in the book, but Clark is definitely a personal favorite. I particularly don't like Andy's friend, Toby, because she spends most of the Summer pining after this guy who has no interest in her, but she's very possessive of him. The girls in the book all are interesting enough, but almost all of the conversations are about boys. Although relationships are a common topic among teenagers, Andy's friends made it almost a necessity to mention a boy in all conversations. Clark is a very well developed character because he breaks the mold of the typical people from the made-up town in Connecticut. I am not going to spoil anything, but he has a pretty cool job and he's very smart. His influence on the other characters make the book from very superficial to a cute love story/ summer story.

Morgan Matson is a talented writer, and I do want to continue reading her other books. I think a key characteristic in a good writer is that they can make you hate or love the characters, but be able to keep you involved with the book. The Unexpected Everything does have a message in the book, which is that life doesn't go according to plan. You might have your whole life written out in an organizer, but that might not be the way that it works out.  I recommend this book for people who wants a summer-y feel. This books is very young adult orientated, but it deals with enough topics that I feel that most people will enjoy it.

Some Favorite Quotes: 

“I could do this. If whole galaxies could change, so could I.”
 

You have to try. You have to take your chances. Go and attempt and see what happens. And even if you fail - especially if you fail - come back with your experience and your hard-won knowledge and a story you can tell. And then later you can say, without regret or hesitation... 'Once, I dared to dare greatly” 

“The idea that you could rethink the thing you'd always thought you wanted and change your plan - it was almost a revolutionary concept. That you could choose what would make you happy, not successful"

“Sometimes we get a little bit of a facade. We think we have people. Family, friends... but in the end, it's just you and the darkness. Everyone leaves eventually, my young friend. It's better, really, to learn early. This way, you can save yourself some disappointment.” 

Question: Have you read anything similar to this book?

I am sorry I haven't updated in almost a month! I have had so much college test prep to do. There's only eight days left in the month...so I'll try to catch up with some posts!

I Learned To Ski!

Hey everyone! Over last weekend (January 13-15), I went on my school's ski trip to Okemo Resort in Vermont. I've never skied before this weekend, so it was a very eventful weekend for me. It took six hours to get to Vermont because of all the traffic. My friend and I took that time to watch the movie Shutter Island (I give it 10/10). I shared a room at a hotel with my friends, so the night was fun because we played about forty rounds of Cards Against Humanity.

This was my first time to Vermont, and I have to say it's so pretty. I stayed in Rutland County; it was so peaceful and the air felt so crisp.




There's a Waffle Cabin at Okemo that's on a mountain, and the only way to get to it is to take the chair lift to the top of the mountain and than ski halfway down. As a person who never skied before, it was kind of scary the first day I went because I didn't know how to stop half way down a mountain, but by the second day I was a "pro."




I give a lot of credit to my friends because before my lesson they took me on two slopes to teach me how to ski. They were pretty efficient and I love them for trying to teach me even if I might've fallen twice and teared up a bit (I was petrified!). On the second day, I went on a few of the easiest slopes with my friend (also a fellow beginner) about five times, but my classmates who were more experienced with skiing and snow boarding stuck around to help us out. It was a lot of fun to to be on the slopes with so many people that were willing to help me.



Overall, skiing was so much fun and I definitely want to go again. I bought my own goggles for the next time I hit the slopes, and eventually I'll get more of the paraphernalia. I was so scared to ski because I had never even seen skis in real life. In the two days, I learned a lot about skiing and how fun it is. The best parts about the trip was being with the girls in my class and realizing how amazing friendship is because literally the girls who usually ski black slopes (the hardest ones) took time to stay with me on the easiest slopes. Also, my friend Nikki and I were so proud of ourselves because by the second day we were able to ski by our own. Although this trip was only two days, it will last in my mind for a long time. Next year I'll be back at Okemo (but hopefully I'll ski before then!).

Question: Have you ever gone skiing?

My Week in Photos 1/1-1/7

Hey everyone! I've seen many bloggers doing a series called "My Week in Photos", which if you can't tell is when they post some photos they posted from the week & a small blurb with what they did that week. I 've been meaning to do something like this for awhile because I take a lot of photos. I think I am going to try doing this type of post a few times a month. Since I am trying to do post twice a week, it would bring more variety to this website. Furthermore, this what I have done in the last week.

January 1, 2017

It was New Year's Day, so I decided to start on my resolution of getting + staying organized by planning out my whole week in my "Follow Your Dreams" planner.  I have to admit there is something nice about planning out your whole week, blogposts, homework, and homework.

Side note: I was organizing my planner right after watching Sherlock and it took me forever because I was still not over how good that show is.


January 3, 2017

It was my last day of break and I hadn't filmed or edited my video for my film class. The prompt was to make a video with no actors or spoken dialogue. My mind went to my dog, Bosco, who was sitting on the couch. I spent two hours of my Tuesday filming my dog in his superdog costume & trying to get him to act for me. In the end, the 2:30 video was a hit at my school. I have some photos of him during this time.

It was my first day of school after a 2.5 week break. That day wasn't the worst, but it was a big reality check on how important Junior year is. All I heard when I was in school were the words "SAT, "college," "tests," and "future." It was a very stressful day because all I can do is study hard and do all my work to give me an edge up in the future.  It also doesn't help that I took a 3.5 hour long practice SAT the night before school, so it was rough going back to school.My favorite part of the day was my art class where I started working on a new piece. Also, Wednesday was the day I was able to get the Q train at the Second Avenue Station in the Upper East Side. This station is absolutely beautiful and CLEAN, so it was different than most subway stations in New York.

Friday was a very busy day for me. I had school, but afterwards I went to the French Embassy bookstore with my friends, to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, out to dinner, and then to my school's coffeehouse (kind of like a talent show with other single-sex schools in the area).

Saturday was a day that I sleep in and catch up on work. How can I possibly be behind in my work after only three days of school!? In the morning, my father drove me to a new place in my area called "Baya Bowls" and I bought myself a pitaya bowl with kiwi, coconut shavings, honey, and pineapple. While I ate my breakfast I watched The Office (I only have 5 episodes left!), and then I worked on my homework. The rest of the day I did SAT prep, wrote an article for the Teen News Website that I write for called The Weekly Buzz (you should definitely check it out), and then wrote a blogpost. I know my life is sooooo interesting, haha.







 Do you like this type of post? What did you all do this week? Let me know in the comments. My life isn't crazy interesting (currently it's 20% school 20%homework 15%blogging 5%The Office 20% SAT prep 20% sleeping). I love to take photos, so I can definitely promise more insights on my life like this.
