The other day I had an awkward hug, but I also felt like I was being such a creeper as well. It was the worse, but I got over it.
It was the first time I met this person and I felt like he was leaning in from the side to hug me, so I leaned in. Next thing you know it, my hand was on his lower back and he moved back a little. I was just lingering there with my hand on his back like a creeper. I was like on No! It's too late already. So he leaned in again and it was a quick hug. There was some what still a distance between us when we hugged. It was quick and it was done.I felt like a major creeper! Once, I walked away I just started laughing. For situations like this there's nothing else you can do, but just laugh at yourself. Well I mean you can cry, but what's the point in that? Whenever I just meet someone for the first time and they want to hug me hi, it totally catches me off guard. I'm just like "Oh crap! They want to hug me. What to do I do?" What do you guys do in situations like this? Make it more awkward? XOXO Alyssa

When I wrote out my last book review, I really didn't know what to write. I didn't want to give anything away about the book, just in case someone wanted to read it and I wasn't so excited about the book. The latest book I finished reading was Divergent By Veronica Roth. First off, I was not planning on reading this book, nor was I planning on watching the movie. Some people I know said it was a good book and my friend Michelle gave it to me to read. I figured I'd read it since the movie was going to come out the next month.
I read this book in about 3-4 days. When I get into a book, I really get into it. It was such an amazing book and I was always yelling "What!?!?!" or "No!?!?!" to my book. I also cried a little too. I do have some regrets to reading this book: 1. It's such a great book, it makes me want to keep reading the series and do nothing else, but read. 2. Because it's a great book, it makes me wish the movie was already coming out. I'm such an impatient person. 3.The movie better do the book justice. I will be greatly disappointed if it's not. 4. I can't shut up about this damn book. When I like something I get all fan crazy. Yes! I am one of those people who's a fandom of their favorite shows, movies, and books.
If you do not know what this book is about here's a little description about the book:
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.SPOILERS!!! If you don't want to know what happens in the movie or the book I suggest you stop reading this post. Sorry!

I want to make a confession, I love watching the Carrie Diaries. I'm a big fan of Sex and the City, so when this new show came out I had to watch it. I think I love the show, because of the clothes and the accessories. Oh and let's not forget the swoon worthy Austin Butler. While watching it, I saw this initial necklace she wore. I fell in love with it and I knew I had to have it. Here's a simple way you can make it.
Parchment paper or regular printer paper
Cookie Cutter (letter of your choosing)
1. You want to tape your paper to the table, so it won't be moving around. 2.Your going to roll out your clay to the thickness of your liking. 3. Grab your cookie cutter and cut out a letter. My cookie cutter is broken, so I had to use an x-acto knife to cut the middle hole out. 4. Once you cut out all your letters, use your needle to carefully poke a hole in your letters. For my A's, I poked holes on the left side of three of them and poked holes on the right side of the other two. 5. Bake for the amount your package tells you.
When your letters are done baking and cooled, you can now make your necklace. Since I made 5 A's, I used 5 jump rings, plus two more for the ends. Open up your jump rings with your pliers and slip the jump rings into each letter. Space out your letters on your chain however you like and close each jump ring. You will have two jump rings left. Slip one onto one end of your chain and close it. The last one will get slipped onto the other end of your chain. Slip the clasp on the the jump ring and close it. Now your done!
I painted polka dots on mine, because you can never have enough polka dots in your life. You can paint yours or leave it as is. You can also make two necklaces and layer them. Go Crazy! Get Creative! Hope you guys have a great weekend. What will you be making this weekend? Happy Crafting! Alyssa
