Although you may not know this about me, I really enjoy fashion. I enjoy men's fashion better than women's, but I happen to be a female that wears clothes so I do keep up with trends. I consider my style classy east coast, but you can decide for yourself in my new summer lookbook video!
Well, nothing much has happened in the past week. My schedule basically is soccer, soccer, sleep, soccer, repeat. This Friday I'm going Duke University for soccer camp and I am stoked. It should be a ton of fun and a break from the humdrum routine of high school soccer. Anyway, just a quick update. Byeeeeee.

So the coolest thing in my entire life happened on June 2, 2014. My mom and I were staying in New York City and on the last day of our vacation we were determined to get tickets to see the Tonight Show. How do you do this one might ask. Well, tickets are free and they release them online like a month in advance, but those tickets sell out in like 5 minutes, it's ridiculous. So the person who is determined to get tickets wakes up at 4 in the morning and plans to wait outside of Rockefeller until 9:00 AM when the hand out standby tickets. They give out a 100 tickets, but generally only the top 10 get in. We got there right on time and were numbers 5 and 6 in line. While waiting in line, I went over to the Today Show while my mom saved my space. The people around us were nice enough to let my spot in line be saved. I went over and saw Ansel Elgort, Shailene Woodly, and John Green because they were continuing their press tour leading up to the premiere in NYC! Once we got our standby tickets we went to the hotel and walked around while waiting for our time to report back to Rockefeller. We checked in, waited some more, reported back again, and got in line. While waiting I got to meet this really stinkn' awesome guy from Australia who was a huge John Green fan like myself. He learned about John through watching his Crash Course American History videos on YouTube because he was moving to America and needed some basics on our country. He was so cool and a genuine nerdfighter. It was funny because he didn't even know John was an author until he looked him up, he was purely watching Crash Course to learn about America. He then read all of his books and is now a huge fan. Unfortunately the Aussie was number 50 in line and didn't get into the show to see Ansel, who is in the TFIOS movie. So we waited in line, and finally they gave us our tickets. It was fantastic. We were in. We also go wrist bands, which is the only thing we got to keep. You can't take pictures in the studio and you don't get to keep your tickets, which is kind of a bummer, but I got a selfie with it. So yeah, on the show that night was Rickey Gervais, Ansel Elgort, and Miranda Lambert, but they also did a pre-recorded segment (we didn't know we were going to watch them film it) with Jeff Daniel and Jim Carrey!!!!! It was amazing, I have never been in the presence of more talented people. I mean, all I cared about was to see Jimmy because he is my hero, any of the guests that were cool was an added bonus. The fact that Ansel was on the show and I'm such a huge TFIOS fan was all a coincidence. So, there you have it, a summary of the greatest day of my life.
So this summer has been by far the best summer of my life. I basically completely forgot about this blog over the summer, but I'm determined not to forget as often. Once again I will be spamming you with photos and memories of my summer. Because nobody reads this blog it's mainly so that in the future I won't forget how awesome summer 2014 was.
