Arguing With Myself
- December 31
- Izzy's the name, livin's the game! Pleased to meet you. I'm sixteen-almost-seventeen years old and I am perhaps the most boring and average teenaged girl you'll ever meet. But, you know, life for a small town kid like me isn't what it looks like on Degrassi, and I assure you there are zero flash-mob dance sequences like Glee.
But hey, here I am! I came to OS to jot down my opinions, rant to unbiased ears (or rather, eyes), and just have an outlet to post any funny stories, events, or thoughts that may cross my path.
Enjoy my tumultuously boring, simply complicated life!

If there is anyone who has followed this feeble blog for any amount of time, you'll recall the rise and fall of my previous, and only, romantic relationship.
This may be happening all over again.
After nine months, four of which we didn't speak, we've gradually became friends again. About three… Read full post »
This Wednesday, I became the proud owner of one adorable kitten.
I've grown up around cats. When I was born, my parents had four grown cats, so although I never got to experience the fun of having a kitten, I loved cats and grew accustomed to having them around. Over the… Read full post »
Whenever I read a fashion magazine (which is a rare occasion, as my bookshelf is too full of comic books to accomodate any other type of reading), I always see those stick thin models with their rock hard abs and perfect legs and flawless skin.
Now, I've been "blessed" with a… Read full post »
Last year I was with the first boyfriend I ever had.
I know right, fifteen years old is a little late to the game. Let's just say guys weren't exactly clamoring over each other for my digits.
But some guy decided I was actually worth a shot! And hey, I liked him… Read full post »
A couple Sundays ago I was just workin' away at my part-time job at a local grocery store.
A cheerful-looking middle-aged man came through my lane. As I rang in his things, he asked me a question. A bizarre question, to someone like me.
"Did you make it to church today?"… Read full post »
I definitely haven't blogged since my breakup. For that, I apologize.
My brain had just been fizzly with anger and frustration and sadness and it took a couple weeks to get over, and then I had a serious case of zero-inspiration. But alas, I have returned!
I've just been kind of… Read full post »
Remember in previous posts when I was oh-so-smitten with the guy I've been seeing?
Y'know, the one who was my first slow dance, first kiss, first date?
Last week, out of the blue, out of absolutely NOWHERE, he broke up with me. Actually, "dumped" is a much more… Read full post »
In two weeks, I will be sixteen.
I will be deemed legally responsible enough to operate a motor vehicle, sign my own health card, and party in Europe.
In many ways, I'm happy, but in some I'm sad.
This past year, being fifteen, has by a landslide been the best… Read full post »
So I've been seeing my first and current... um... boyfriend(?) for nearly a little over one month. I'm feeling really good about it, and I'm almost positive he does too. But my friend asked me an odd and unexpected question the other day.
"Is it 'Facebook Official' yet?"
Apparently, no relationship… Read full post »
OU LA LA!
Izzy has a boyfriend.
So, if you read my last post, you would remember B., the boy I danced with at the school dance. Well, we're sort of kind of.. uhm... dating? I guess that's the word.
I still call it a "thing," but my friends are labelling… Read full post »
Last night I went to a school dance.
WRONG THIS TIME!!
I went with my friend K. (girl) and B. (guy) (Not writing their actual names here..) K. has been my best friend for nine years, and I've just met B. this year in math class. My friends have… Read full post »
Death has hit a little too close for comfort today.
Last night a boy I knew from grade 7, whom I haven't spoken to in years, died.
From what I've heard, he and his friends got drunk, got into a car, sped, and crashed head on into a post.
He was… Read full post »
Recall: I posted a blog about a friends ex-boyfriend who was (and still is) in love with me, vain as that may sound.
Here's an update for my like, 2 readers!
So, I made it very clear to this guy that I had no intention to date him. I was… Read full post »
Way back when in September, I wrote a post about how much a HATED high school based on the first day there. And now.... eight months later (I jad to count on my fingers. Teehee) I've decided to do a rather late followup to that. If I haven't already done… Read full post »
Hooray for adolescent girl issues.
This whole kerfuffle began... yesterday, actually.
I'll start from the top.
One of my best friends, Heather, and her boyfriend just recently broke up. I don't know exactly when, because I actually didn't find out until yesterday (Odd. Kind of saddening. I'm n… Read full post »
Alright... this is going to be a bit gross.
There's not many things I truly hate about myself. Im rather slender, my hair is tolerable, I'm smart, I'm not HORRIFICALLY ugly. I had an acne problem about six months back but thats gone with the wind now.
But there's ONE THING… Read full post »
I'll tell you the truth: Not very many things grossly infuriate me.
But one thing does. It angers me down to the core.
Earlier this week, I was watching old clips of Ellen Degeneres on Youtube (since I'm never home to watch it on TV). I saw a clip of her… Read full post »
So, as I have barely mentioned at all, I WENT TO HAWAII!
It was oodles of fun. I never wanted to leave. I left PARADISE and came home to SNOW. AUGH.
On the fifth day in Hawaii, it was my special ME activity day. We all got to pick something special… Read full post »
Everyone remembers Mommy's bed.
When you're little, Mommy's bed is one of your favourite places. Sometime in our childhoods, I bet we've all crawled into Mommy's bed in the middle of the night.
I'm fifteen, and I still do, sometimes.
My parents don't sleep in the same bed. My father likes… Read full post »
I'm trying to catch up on my blogging again :D (Yay for retarded smiley faces!)
I was thinking about school, and about my friends, and crap like that, when my thoughts landed on one particular kid. His name is Leonard (pronounced LEE-YO-NARD), he's a bit taller than me, he kind of… Read full post »
Goodness, its been a while since I've blogged.
So about four days ago I was getting on a plane, heading home from Hawaii (That was really annoying, I never wanted to leave!). It was an 8 hour flight from Honolulu to Houston, then a four hour flight to Newark, then another… Read full post »
... didn't start off so terribly.
In fact, it started off awesome.
My friends and I had tickets to this awesome concert at a university in my city. We were super excited because it was a band we absolutely loved, plus some opening bands we liked too.
When we got… Read full post »
Do I smell an episode of Maury coming on?
I haven't blogged in a while, simply because I couldn't think of anything to blog ABOUT. But a certain occurence within my peers has got me thinking.
One of my friends told one of my other friends that a guy in our… Read full post »
So I finally saw the well-awaited thriller Gamer today. Everybody was saying it really blew, but I actually kinda liked it.
I kind of get why it's rated R now. There's like, another mind-control game, and people are total cyber-sex-fiends. Plus, in the Slayers game, some guy gets teabagged, like in… Read full post »
So, what a good, great, AWESOME year this was for music.
In February, one of my more recent favourite bands, Mariana's Trench released their second album, Masterpiece Theatre. If the awesome album wasn't enough, they've now scheduled a show in my city!
Then, Our Lady Peace put out a new album,… Read full post »
