The Body Type Guide for the Teen Girl

Bonjour tous le monde!

I basically have been thinking for quite a while on this topic, which I only see most common for “women”and by women I mean anyone above the age of 21. And I go all like “WHAAT!? Where’s the guide for teens!?”

Discovering the world of body types, I really feel people need to know, that there are many girls out there who suddenly realize some clothes don’t seem to look as good on them as they’ve always thought it would (like me :P) and it is really disheartening.

Moreover, the majority of the clothes they suggest aren’t clothes we teen girls would “normally” wear to school… If it were some special occasion, maybe, but otherwise, we’re too “socially” and “mentally” trying to be as teen-like as possible at 14 and above. So all those clothes which our moms wear quite often , it’s a A NO.

So I thought why not put one together out there for all you 14 and above teens! And if you had no idea about such stuff, just read on and be educated!

According to Google, there are mainly just 5 types of body shapes for women: The Rectangle, the Inverted Triangle (also known as strawberry), the Triangle (also known as pear), the Hourglass, and the Apple (Oval).

But in the teens world, when our body hasn’t really reached much of its shape, or is yet to be final, we often tend to overlook such stuff, or end up coming in between two of these.

For example: I am between a pear and an hourglass, mainly because a lot of sites say bust size determines your body shape, but my shoulders are way wider even though I might not have as big a bust size as my hips.

In conclusion here’s mainly the body types I feel are differently seen in high school, and there are sub categories as well. Here’s one with the closest ones:

The Inverted Triangle (the V shape): 

You’re a teen who usually has quite broad shoulders, but that doesn’t mean it is bad! You have nice and slim legs, which means you can show them off to flatter yourself 🙂

If you’re not sure, just look at yourself in the mirror:

Are your shoulders mainly bigger than your hips? You legs are pretty slim, but your above waist seems to be quite bigger in size? (bust size doesn’t matter, your shoulders can be wide despite having a smaller bust)

The best way to flatter yourself in outfits for school is to try and balance your bottom half to look as even to your upper body as possible. So baggy pants, and figure hugging tops give it a cute look.

But if you’re in the mood to show off them legs, try balancing it with adding less credit to them boobs or shoulders. Off the shoulder tops work, baggy to cover the huge bust, or a figure hugging one to show off non-shoulder parts.

Such tops hide those wide shoulders to give the illusion they are small and pretty 🙂

If you have bust instead of shoulders as the problem, showing off the shoulders instead of bust helps!

All these are perfect for school, and at the same time you can feel good about when you look at yourself, cuz you are amazing the way you’ve been built 😛

In terms of dresses, off-shoulders or spaghetti strapped ones look best. A figure hugging dress highlights how skinny your legs are tho, so giving that even look flatters your figure.

The Lean Column or the Rectangle (mainly the same except the weight)

This body type, very common in skinny teens in the school, is mainly weight being distributed among your whole body. You might not have that thigh gap, or that good arm, but if you have a flat stomach, and your shoulders and hips and waist are the same, you are a rectangle.

To flatter yourself, you need to give people the illusion you have curves, mainly because almost all your body seems to be equally distributed. The best way is to wear fitting clothes, and flaring parts that are too skinny. For example, a nice fitting top to sort of make it look like you have a cute smaller waist, paired with flared jeans looks cute, although I as a 14 year old HATE to wear flared jeans as it is mainly seen as a clothing “older women” wear. If you’re with me, an alternative could be wear skinny jeans (or cute high waist or nicely fitting shorts), a fitted top with an off shoulder sleeve look! 🙂

But if it is against the dress code, no one’s forcing you

Tadaa!!!

And dresses, well, a flowing bottomed one, with a cinched waist, and strapless/off shoulder/v neck will make do with a beautiful look! 😀

The Apple (aka Oval)

Never be shy to admit you are an apple, because you didn’t choose to be so. But you know you can change it, either by dressing amazingly that no one will care, or do a lot of sit-ups!! (if you’re not as lazy a person as me :P)

If you tend to often gain weight below on your waist (the tummy) and a little on the upper hips, then you probably are an apple. There’s no shame in that, we can fix it 🙂

Thankfully, many people who are apple shaped usually have pretty good legs and cute arms in some cases, so the best way is to show them off, and at the same time decrease the amount you have  between waist and hips which is showing out.

Tops which cinch right under you bust and flow from the same place flatter your top (a lower neck is cute if you’re daring) and hide your tummy. Flair jeans also make  people to see your cute legs, and make them gain a little more attention than your upper body as much.

But mainly, you should have any clothing that skims your tummy, and hides it, giving the illusion that there is BARELY any fat there.

See how you can’t even tell whether there is any fat!

Image result for apple body shape clothing

The fact that they don’t fit on your waist and skim your below bust area, doesn’t highlight that fat, so you look great, AND you feel great

Bottoms don’t really matter, because your legs are DAMN good. So basically for school, jeans, leggings etc work out, but I feel you shouldn’t wear too many loose pants, as your legs and bust are the best parts of your body, so showing off those good legs in fitted pants are best in my opinion for you apple girls out there.

Dress wise, anything that cinches just below your bust to flair out, or clothing that will skim your body to hide that fat 🙂

The Pear (aka the Triangle)

People like you, and sorta me, we ALWAYS are self conscious whenever we want to be comfortable. Because you might LOVE to wear sweatpants, crop tops and whatever every skinny and rectangular girl wears out there, or even want to dress what way, but once you see it on you, you immediately regret it. Trust me, I’ve been there.

Being a pear is sometimes discouraging at the age of 14, mainly because all the guys out there and society itself promotes skinny legs, and even proportions on both halves of the body. How to tell if you are pear?

Look at yourself in the mirror, you are a pear if your hips seem to be a lot more wider than you shoulders. Many people say bust size decides your shape, but in my opinion, you might have a huge bust but your shoulders seem to be way smaller than your hips.

Also, many teen girls get confused between the Pear and the Hourglass, because sometimes your shoulders are almost the same length, which is why you’re a lot in between. I suggest you read onto tips for the hourglass AND pear at the same time: I’ve tried and heard it helps.

Pears are best known for their wide hips, a little off proportions compared to the rest of your body, so to feel good about yourself, you need to make the rest of your body feel better, and sort of reduce the attention on your thighs. ALTHOUGH, Pear shaped women = better birth-giving later on in life. Plus, the Queen Bee herself is a Pear…we bow down to thee 🙂

A good way to do so to begin with, is bring more attention to your upper half, by wearing more fitted clothing, because you have a DAMN GOOD WAIST and arms. Off-shoulder tops that hug your waist are YAS, and V-necks with a good fit around the waist as well give a better credit. Schools might be a little strict, so fitted tops work. If you don’t mind, flared jeans usually balance out the huge waist and thighs for us, by flaring at the calves.

BUT…i sort of don’t wear it as for me it screams more of “mom” to me.

If you don’t like the flared jeans (like moi), a high waist skinny jeans does the trick. Avoid AS MANY baggy clothes as you can, especially for the upper body, because at times it makes you look twice your size, and you DO NOT want that. It might be comfy, but at times when you see yourself in front of the mirror you might not feel as good about yourself.

You go gurlll!

In terms of dresses, like a Rectangle, anything that cinches around your waist, and flairs downwards, BUT the top can flatter your beautiful shoulders to compliment you more, and make you feel more self-confident whenever going out 😛 Image result for dress for pear shaped

The Hourglass: The Neat and the Full

This is the body shape that has continuously been WORSHIPPED by social media and media itself, in being the ideal body shape for women. A lot of times, its actually the rectangle that is portrayed the most in magazines, but hourglass is goals just the same.

Many a time, teen girls are confused as to whether they are Pear or Hourglass, but from experience here’s my best way to know:

Look at yourself in the mirror and look closely at your shoulders and your hips. Do they look about the same width?

Lots of articles compare bust size to make you look hourglass, but sorry to burst your bubble, lots of women in this world exist with huge busts but no wide as hip shoulders.

Which is why I consider shoulders as being  better factor to your body shape. And if when you look at your mirror you see shoulder-hip similar width, YOU IS AN HOURGLASS!!!

An hourglass mainly consists of a woman with a pretty small waist, and a shoulder-hip width similarity. Bust size is often taken into consideration, but its fine all the same.

The idea of full and neat hourglass comes in terms of weight, wherein a “neat hourglass” is more of the skinnier crowd of girls who have an hourglass-like figure.

On good celebrity example is Scarlett Johansson:

Her weight range is mainly towards the skinnier side, which is why she’d be considered a neat hourglass.

A full hourglass woman, is a little more weight consistent, but celebrities like Oprah and Kim Kardashian rock it.

But if the weight side leaves your mind completely confused, here’s another, simpler difference:

Fuller hourglass girls are those who have more of the bigger bust vibe, and a lot of times, the wider hip vibe too.

A neat hourglass girl might not have the bust size, but more of the shoulder vibe of an hourglass.

If you’re left too confused (especially as a pear) on whether you are so, then just follow the tips for this body shape AND the body shape you’re comparing yourself with as well.

As you have a small waist, fitted clothing is best to show off them curves. V-necks are highly recommended, but since many schools are a little against it, that cinched waist highlight does the job.

Many a times the hips of an hourglass teen aren’t her best quality, but since you love your waist (and if you don’t START LOVING IT NOW), you need to show it off.

Now remember: NO BAGGY TOPS OR PANTS

We all have that little moment in a day wherein we just want to get into our comfy baggy af clothes, but if you really want to feel good about yourself in a day, maybe choosing the right clothing will be a good first step.

Besides the fitting tops, high-waisted pants and pencil skirts are a YAS. One could wear the flowy skirt too, but if you have AMAZING hips, what’s there to hide!?

Yas Gurll

Ok ok ok…so I know pencil skirts aren’t really skirts you’d wear as an everyday school outfit, but who said they aren’t made of denim!!! Plus it’s a fashion statement, be yourself, and be proud to be you.

Dress wise, go for body-con dresses if you aren’t too self-conscious a person, or try and find dresses that flatter your curves, like ones with a frill top (deep if you want) and a fitted bottom, or the mermaid effect of dresses.

This is more prom-like…but who caresss

Coming to the end of my post, I as a teenager who’s spent a lot of her time being self-conscious about body image issues, really feel the need to let girls know:

You’re perfect the way you are. Maybe you think you have flaws, but that’s what makes you that amazing person everyone sees you as. Sometimes you might not even notice it, but God made you the way everyone sees you as, for a reason, don’t EVER hate yourself if others decide to see it a bad way.

You are you, and this guide is just a teeny thing to help you if you ever feel less-confident about yourself. If you want to wear sweatpants to school…GO AHEAD, no one’s stopping you.

Just remember, wear clothes that YOU want to wear, clothes that make YOU feel better. A couple of times the factor of religion and parenting comes into play, and you can’t really help it, so maybe what I’ve shared could help you find other ways. I too have been brought up with strict clothing backgrounds, but I’ve found ways, and I hope you do too.

I really hope this post helps any teen out there, and I’d LOVE to get any feedback or tips which I could add. A lot of these tips are inspired through reading a lot of body-type posts via google, and all the pictures are via Google Search.

Stay Awesomeee

Love

Ch.2 – A Ride to Remember (Part 2)

Tiff was bubbling with enthusiasm and excitement. In fact, it was so bad, that it literally showed in the way she was behaving. She’d run like a lunatic towards their first ride, giggling and turning around to face her friends. She even began complaining they were being so slow, whilst hopping backwards. She totally knew how to impress Kwan and Alec didn’t she!

Waiting in line just made it worse, as her voice just continued to get higher pitched when she spoke. Lauren couldn’t stop looking at her and telling her to calm the fuck down, but seriously…she was FINALLY going with her best friends and her infatuation, followed by a super cute guy and sports fanatic. WHO WOULDN’T BE JUMPY!?!

10 minutes into the wait, she turned to Alec playfully and asked “Wanna partner up for the ride?”

“Sure,” he replied. He really needed to learn to smile… which is exactly what she decided to tell him.

“Oye, smile pleassseee. Today should be a day for you to enjoy ! “ she explained, and as if in response, he gave her the cutest smile she had ever seen. OH MY GOSH he looks like an angel…

In awe she moved forward with the line. She turned to look at Kwan, whilst he stood there looking down at his feet. She just wanted to stand there close to him, maybe even play with his hair like she used to…No…it’ll never happen…stop bringing your hopes up…

Right then, she flashed back to when she’d gone on a sort-of double date months ago, Saiyuri, Greg, her and Kwan. It wasn’t really a date, but it felt like one, as Saiyuri finally met Greg and they hit it off. She’d gotten some time with Kwan, them walking through the park and rewinding as the warm wind brought a sense of love into the air. She’d really enjoyed that day, and she’d wished she could have dozens more to follow it.

But I guess it’s time to move on Tiffany…you can’t keep hoping you can fix anything. It’s gone, and you can no longer do anything about it. He doesn’t feel the same anymore…he probably won’t feel it again…

Her excitement then died down for a second, as she stared at the grass next to Kwan’s feet instead.

“It doesn’t seem too fast.” She lifted her head to meet his eyes. If only I could see how you feel… shaking it out of her head she turned to see the next lot of people let out yelps as they turned another loop on the ride.

“The ride? Looks fast enough to me” she said, her mind a mix of emotions. What was she doing, she couldn’t ruin Alec’s day just cuz she couldn’t get over a guy.

Jumping off the bars on the side (she’d decided to take a seat to avoid being any more jumpy), she looked at her group with a smile on her face. They’d almost reached the entrance, as she said “WOOH, let’s go have some fun shall we!”

The next set of seats on the rollercoaster came pretty quick, as she rushed to drop her bag into the containers on their right, and sat eagerly into her seat. She looked at Alec, and happily said “You excited?”

“Sort of”

“What do you mean sort of?”

“I mean…we’ll see. Let the damn ride begin first…”

“Good idea.”

She nervously looked ahead, hearing Kwan and Toby’s voices in front of her. He probably wouldn’t hear her if she said anything, but she decided to give it a try.

“You excited people? Kwan? Toby?”

No reply…

Yup, they definitely can’t hear me… she said, making it a mental note for when they ended.

The ride continued to move upwards, as the people in the front finally let out their first shouts.

***

The ride was over in minutes, as all its riders took the next couple of seconds to catch their breaths…and let out the sigh of relief on not being dead.

OKay…that went well…I guess…let’s see what we do next…

Tiff just couldn’t stop planning the rides next, her brain calculating the best ones based on the waiting time, fun level etc.

She didn’t even realize they were at Werewolf, until Lauren pointed out to the ride next to it and said “OMG LOOK! THE SWING RIDE IS LETTING PEOPLE IN!!!!!!!”

Lauren ran to the swings, with Saiyuri pulled along with her. The rest of the group, including Tiff jogged over, jumping over bars to skip to the front of the line. There were more than 40 seats on the ride, and they all HAD to be together.

Rushing to a seat right behind Charles and Toby, Kwan seated right in front of him. Lauren had unfortunately taken two seats with Saiyuri on the opposite side of the ride, as she called out to Tiffany, telling her there was a seat. She really wanted to be with Lauren, but at the same time, the rest of the guys were right here with her.

Unable to make up her mind, the swings were pulled upwards, and she soon was moving in circles through the air.

***

The wind blew through her hair, kissing her cheeks, as the sun warmed her face in the brightness of that day. She spread out her arms, closing her eyes to enjoy the freedom she felt, whilst soaring through the air.

 

She turned to Charles, yelling out his name and went to reach his hands. They struggled for a couple of seconds, but soon enough they’d manage to give each other a high five. She then turned to Toby, who couldn’t really reach her, but they high fived just the same.

It was then that she caught a glimpse of Kwan, his hands holding onto the two chains on his swing, avoiding looking to the ground. She called out to him, but he didn’t turn much to face her.

He’s getting dizzy! Oh no…

Once the ride was over, she hurried out of her seat to get him out; he didn’t look good. Once he was out of his seat, he walked slowly, holding his head and saying “Nah, I just feel dizzy…”

Suddenly, Tiffany felt this pang of guilt in her stomach, as if her enthusiasm want to go on many rides had caused Kwan to get dizzy on such a ride. She walked right behind him, slowly offering him her bottle of water, as he continued to walk funny towards their check-in area for the day.

“You sure you okay?” she asked reluctantly.

“Yeah I’ll be fine. Walking it out might hel..” Tiffany mildly hit the top of his head. He turned to her, clearly surprised.

“What was THAT for!?” he shouted.

“Sometimes, when I’m dizzy…I just hit my head and it’s all fine then.” she explained, a weird tone of pride in her voice.

“K….” he replied, completely confused, as they headed down, passing the games section.

You’re such an impressor Tiffany…your wild explanations are just MARVELOUS to impress people…I mean…LOOK AT HIS AMAZED FACE!!

“You know guys…why not just avoid doing any rides for the next 15 minutes or so…let Kwan regain his senses” Toby announced, obviously looking like he thought this out well.

“Good idea…mm” Kwan pitched in, shaking his head for a third time since he got off the ride.

Well…I guess that’s it for the first half of today, Tiff thought sadly, her mind still rethinking her plan to go on the next “mind-boggling” rides.

***

Chapter 2 – A Ride to Remember (Part 1)

Wednesday morning arrived into Tiff’s life, like any other morning she’d ever had. She woke up a tad bit late, spent a little too long getting dressed up and left the house 30 minutes past the time her parents always lectured her to be ready at. But she couldn’t help it…today was Alec’s last day, plus they were going to an amusement park…SHE COULDN’T AFFORD TO LOOK BAD.

Makeup was never Tiff’s thing, so she tried to look good in terms of clothing. Of course it never really worked out for her, but she felt it was worth the effort. She’d chosen a turquoise tee-top on top of white shorts and Puma shoes. Not as good as she’d imagined in her head, but enough for her to not boil in the sun, and at the same time see to it Alec had the best last day ever.

They’d never really had proper conversations for most of the year, but as the school year had drawn closer to the last few months, she’d spent some time getting the guy to open up and show his personality. She’d mainly see it in his texts, but at time she’d used her weird extrovert skills and seen a different part of the quite Finnish guy in Kwan’s ELD class. And a car-fanatic too! Plus almost all the girls in her friend-group seemed to think he was hot AF, which she herself couldn’t deny. Unfortunately, this little hottie was leaving for his home country, and having heard such sad news, and Alec not really having that many friends, she’d set out to plan his whole day at the park.

She’d been there more than 5 times, so she’d been to most of the rides, and she was going to make sure Alec went on each and every scary one. On top of that she’d mentally planned who’d be in the group so that they all went on the rides. Everything was perfectly set up in Tiff’s crazy mind, and she happily walked late into the car, leaving for school and in 20 minutes, the car was plunged into traffic…

***

Perfect she thought, as she patiently sat in the car whilst it slowly made its way to the school parking lot, 15 minutes past the time she’d wanted to arrive. The closer she got to the glass building, the more anxious she got about walking in amidst a student speaking at the assembly. She quietly avoided doing so by taking the longer route through the library and sat next to Sharon embarrassed, and she turned to watch the video they began to play.

Okay…didn’t make that big a fool of myself…let’s hope the bus ride goes fine.

And as much as life seemed to hate Tiffany, her bus ride ended up being the quietest and most boring time in her life. Her partner, Kate, read a book the whole bus ride, Sharon, Lauren and Saiyuri were off in another bus,and Kwan was luckily with his visiting pal Toby and Carl on the other bus. Tiff just HAD to be stuck on the most boring bus on the planet, with absolutely NO friends whatsoever. AND IT WAS THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!

Throughout the bus ride she felt impatient, constantly tapping her feet and trying to distract herself from thinking anyone would make a move and ruin her plans for today. She feared Prudence would ask Toby and Kwan to join them, she feared Alec didn’t feel like going along with the people she’d planned, she feared that she’d hurt Sharon if they wanted to go on all the loop rides. When stuck with no socializing for more than 20 minutes, Tiffany’s mind made the craziest scenarios ever.

Hopefully that’ll end this summer… she thought to herself, as the bus finally got into the park’s parking lot, and Tiff just couldn’t help but swear in her mind she’d strangle the teacher if she made her wait any longer on the bus.

***

The grade gathered around the ticket booth in front of the park’s entrance, and the first thought that just stuck to her mind was: the group HAS to get together. She ran to Lauren and Saiyuri who were talking to Lorenzo, her heart racing like a running horse. That bus ride had gotten her so nervous, she felt jumpier than ever, her mind and body rushing with excitement.

“OMGOMGOMGOMG you guys readyyyyy???” she said in a bubbly tone. Saiyuri nodded in agreement, as Lauren gave her a funny look.

“You okay girl?” she inquired, eyeing Tiff’s jumpy posture and attempting to calm her down.

“Yeah yeah…just super duper excited ‘cause today is going to be the best day ever and no one is going to ruin it for me…” she said eagerly and did a small hop on the spot. “SO!! Where’s the guys?”

Saiyuri pointed out to where Kwan and Toby were chilling on the side, and Tiffany’s heart skipped a beat. Oh why do you have to be so perfect she thought as she got even more nervous and sounded super mental as she jumped and said “Yass people!! Let’s have the best day everrrrr!!!”

Lord save my soul she thought as Kwan just looked at her funny. She knew she acted like a mentally ill patient sometimes, and she hated it when she showed it to him too, but she couldn’t help it…that bus ride had REALLY freaked her out. She couldn’t afford to let anything go wrong. Which is certainly did when they were starting to group up already and Sharon approached Tiff.

She didn’t know what to do right away as her good friend asked her how the groups were to be. She couldn’t just tell her in the face: we can’t have you along because you hate loops on rides. But she couldn’t say she wanted Sharon to join them either. This was the lesson Tiff had learned as a tween and going to amusement parks. If you don’t go with people like you who like the rides you like, the WHOLE group has to suffer because of that one person. Tiff sucked at saying no, so instead she uttered “I don’t know really…I just want to go on the Vampire ride first…Toby and Kwan have to be there for Alec and we all are also going. But you could come too…”

“Does it have loops?”

“Yeah…you’ll have to wait out…but everyone wants to go…so we can’t leave you alone”

“Let’s just go to Werewolf instead then “

“NOOOOO…Vampire is the first one to always doooo”

And that’s how it went…until Tiff lost control and in the end, Sharon just went along with another set of girls who weren’t so keen to go to Vampire.

A little relieved, she hopped over to Saiyuri, her nerves back again and grabbed onto Alec’s shoulders as they stood in line. He was a little surprised and leaned back, but just moved on forward.

“You excited?” she asked cheerfully. He just looked at her and nodded his head with a cute yeah.

She glanced over at Kwan and gave a small smile, saying “Today is gonna be a great dayyyyy.”

“Sure,” he said with a grin.

A buff guy Charles popped his head from in front of Toby’s shoulder shouting “Hey Tiff! What ride we going to first?”

Grinning from ear to ear she replied,”Vampire”

Chapter 1: A New Couple In Town

The sun beat down on the busy city of Baletown, as 4 lazy teenagers walked along the zebra crossing, the air filled with a sense of love. A young boy, 15 to be exact, walked shoulder to shoulder with another girl, her silky black hair brushing his shoulder every now and then. Two giggling girls followed right behind them, curious to see if the boy would make a move. They shared the same height, one with a darker skin tone, her wavy black hair blowing crazily in the soft breeze of the evening. Her arms were weighed down by several bags in her hands, but that didn’t stop her from watching the two lovebirds in front of her.

She leaned closer to her partner and whispered, “I bet they’re gonna hold hands soon.”

“Ya, I think so too,” her partner replied, her short blonde hair glinting in the sunlight. Her eyes were the similar dark brown to Tiffany’s, but Tiff’s Indian features caused hers to show much darker. The two girls continued to watch in excitement as Greg walked with ease in front of them. At the same time, he finally reached in to hold Sayuri’s hand. She didn’t flinch, and in that very moment, Tiff knew she’d just brought together a new couple.

It wasn’t the first time she’d gone out of her way to get two people together, but it sure was the first time they both had fallen for each other AND gotten to the point wherein they’d now start going out. The last time she’d tried to get her good friend’s crush to like her back, she’d ended up falling for him, and things hadn’t gone so well. Instead she’d befriended Greg in the process, and seeing his sad state, introduced him to Saiyuri. And let’s just say…it worked out pretty well.

So here she was walking behind the couple, while she and her bestie, Lauren, felt single as ever at their very action of holding hands. They’d spent the evening studying for the math test to be held the next day, Tiff, the lovebirds, Lauren, along with Sharon and Kwan. Most of the evening had gone with Sharon asking Kwan too many questions on Math, whilst Tiff and Lauren had ended up doing sums and just getting frustrated with life. On top of that, Tiff hadn’t been able to stand Sharon’s desperation for Kwan’s attention all the time, because despite him friend-zoning her, she was tired of seeing Sharon trying with him again.

Of course, Sharon WAS the girl Tiffany had originally set out to possibly get Kwan to like, but instead she’d gotten to know an amazing guy, fallen for him at the stupidest time, and ended up endangering her friendship with Sharon. Tiff had actually thought that it would work out with Kwan, but instead it had driven her crazy over him, and he finally told it had led him to no longer see her as more than a friend. She’d been devastated, and upset but it sort of hit home when she told Sharon about it and so she went full on “get-close-to-Kwan” mode.

Same applied for the girl he’d also liked before, but who was Tiffany to decide anymore. It was her fault she’d screwed it up with Kwan, now she had no right to interfere with whomsoever he chose to pursue next. Kwan as usual, used it to annoy her and sometimes play with her feelings like he always did, but it had fixed Tiff’s craziness too.

She hadn’t let Sayuri do the same in Greg’s case though. Tiff’s close friendship with both lovers had always been the advantage the two faced, because she wasn’t one to let hearts break so easily. It’s what led to what Lauren and her faced in front of them, the two hands interlocked and swinging at every step.

“Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!!!!!”, Tiff exclaimed while Lauren just started making imaginary hearts at the two of them. They were planning to walk all the way to Wover stop for Lauren’s Tram, so Tiff still had awhile with all of them together as a group. Her eyes always passed the two holding hands, and she’d often get a sad feeling in her stomach. The usual “if I hadn’t been such an idiot with Kwan” thought, and how she’d gotten so close to having what she always wanted: a relationship. Seeing her best friend find her guy was adorable and joyous, but it also reminded her of what she’d screwed up.

As they arrived Wover, Sayuri pointed out to the shops along the street, a wide smile on her face. Greg’s dyed hair color shone brighter, and his eyes contained a sense of longing. A sense of longing for more of her, Tiffany guessed. They waited for the Tram, the temperature slowly cooling down with the day coming to an end. It arrived after a long 5 minutes, and Tiff suddenly felt like she didn’t belong there with Greg and Sayuri holding hands together.

She sort of wished she were invisible…or even able to teleport, as the two just leaned into each other and watched cars go by. The 10 minute wait for the bus felt like forever as she sat on the end of the bench, her eyes avoiding looking at them two. Starting a conversation felt like an awkward choice, leaving Tiff to just quietly watching different cars, taking in their looks. Kwan would’ve begun a whole lecture on cars if he’d been there with them. He’d have avoided Tiff from feeling like a misplaced piece with them. AHH…she once again was thinking about him…perfect. Just the thought you want to have when with a couple on a beautiful sunny evening, and you feel single AF.

When the bus arrived, Tiff swore she could’ve just kissed the first guy on that bus for saving her from the misery of single-life thoughts.

C’est la vie – Short Story Series

Holo world, and today I present to you, my NEW commitment of the summer! Yup, I have another commitment in my ever so long list of “commitments” that I keep stating every thing now and then and not stick to…

Anyways, I sort of promised myself this summer that I’d work on my creative writing, in order to have had a good practice for 10th grade that’s coming up right after. It’s basically a series of stories that I’m going to be writing, about a set of teenagers, the story mainly focused on Tiffany Parks, a fifteen year old expat living in the unpredictable country of Utonia (fictional place), and studying in part of the city known as Baletown.

I was planning to write a few stories to begin with, and then hand the plot-making to all you peoples. So don’t hesitate to comment what you think and ENJOY!!!!

Love,

When you realize you have a blog…WOAH

It’s been a while (technically it’s been super duper long), and it is the time I realize, OMFG VIVIAN!!! You have an effin blog!?!?

I sincerely apologize for not posting at all, and like I’ve mentioned a lot of times before, I suck at commitments, and currently I’m working on that.

I mean, a lot of romantic drama happened, no friendship drama (thank god), and I basically failed French, but there wasn’t much to share. But on top of that I had H.W. everyday and I completely was NOT prepared to handle stress at this point in life, but VOILA… it’s life bitches!!!

Thankfully, I’m not going anywhere for the summertime, hence I need to have some kind of pass-time or job to do besides studying, and I guess blogging will really help.

This post isn’t much to be honest, but I’m hoping to have a couple of posts out and about by next week, mainly on the amazing amount of love knowledge I have acquired, along with a couple of lessons I’ve learned being a freshman in High School.

So c’est fini mes amis, and stay awesomeeeeee

Love

Why I suck at commitments…

Yup…I suck at commitments. Its not like I’ve really gotten into too many in the past few years, but when you have too many…it sort of becomes hard to control all the same time.

For example, I’m basically in my freshman year of high school, but its Middle School where I’m studying (long story…too lazy to explain), which means they basically are trying to prepare us for the horrors of high school. BUT, not everyone can brace for impact, especially someone like me, because I’m the kind of person who pounces on too many activities and ends up over-stressing her life.

So in a normal week, I have rehearsals for School Musical from 4-6 pm on Mondays, sometimes rehearsals from 4-6 pm, then Badminton training from 6:30 pm to 7:40 (its actually till 8, but I leave early for something else), and I rush to my music theory class which ends at 10 pm…which is when I finally get to begin on H.W. After that, Wednesdays I have piano lessons, and then Thursday I either volunteer for CAS or have more drama rehearsals. And Fridays…meh its my relaxation time along with my beautiful Saturday and Sunday…

But it’s always a stressful week for me…I suck at commitments..I’m working on it. And then I realize Vivian…wtf…u also have a blog to take care of and I panic because I have almost 4 different drafts of posts that I’ve wanted to post, but I have been SO lazy to write because of how stressed I get. And judging by my last post, there’s my ever changing love life which annoys and if it just got solved, I’d have ONE less thing to worry about.

Oh well..I apologize for being so lazy, and I’ll try my best to blog  little more. And maybe I’ll finally manage to get some of my drafts into final pieces.

Meh (my signature word these days), au revoir peoples! 😛

Love ❤

Words Can Bring Me Down

 

The washroom door bursts open as Amelia rushes in with the strong urge to throw up, but her empty stomach brings out nothing. Her tears fall onto her pencil skirt, creating dark gray spots wherever they touch, and her nose waters like one of a child in the cold. She knows she can’t do anything about it, they will never be the same again.

8 hours ago

Amelia hummed to the beat of her favorite pop song, as she typed away an email to someone she’d never met before. The sound of her typing on the keys added a sort of rhythmic beat to her song, as she continued humming, and started to tap her feet.

Many people passed her small cubicle that afternoon. She’d meet the eyes of men in gray suits with beards so white it could pierce your eyes, and middle aged women in extremely precarious heels and expensive perfume. But every now and then, she’d fidget with the brown file in her hands, the bold print just sending shivers down her spine. Once in awhile she’d glance up to see who was passing, her light green eyes darting here and there to catch a glimpse of someone new. She knew most of her glances were all meant for that one person. The one who’d stolen her heart 6 months ago. He sat 15 meters across her cubicle, his hair messed around his head, with a constant expression of being engrossed in a story. If she was lucky, she’d often catch a quick smile whenever he’d finish a good part in his article.

But today wasn’t one of those days. She glanced at his desk once again to look out for him, and found herself looking at a merely new couple making out like idiots in a workplace. She could only see the back of the woman’s head, her highlights straight like sticks against her back. Her blue dress hugged her skinny figure, and her bony arms wrapped around a man, whom she couldn’t seem to figure out at first sight.

Her impatient humming stopped the moment they pulled away, and she laid eyes on them both, his brown eyes sparkling as he spoke, while her bright red lipstick complemented her face as she giggled.

Amelia felt the sudden tumble of her heart drop to the floor, it’s beat dying at every little kiss the Caleb and the woman shared in each other’s arms. Her cheeks burned, and her vision started to blur with the forming of tears. She rushed off her chair to the bathroom, her feet sticky on the cold marble floor.

She hated to walk with her heels around the office, the clacking of it’s small tip on the floor would send her into a fit of swears. Only Caleb could stop her fits, whenever they occurred. Sometimes, when desperate for his attention, she’d wear her heels and walk around, sometimes even overdo the swearing.

“You know how much I love you getting mad Amie-bee, but just take it down a notch? Please?” he’d say with his big brown eyes. If she’d still be mad, he’d add on with a “for me?” and act like a tantrum throwing toddler, but he knew she’d always say yes. He’d known her for 2 years, and in that time, they had gotten to know each other well. At least she thought she knew him well.

She stumbled into the ladies’ room, and her legs felt like they’d give away any minute, unable to hold the burden of losing him. She turned towards the mirror and could see her eyes were close to overflowing with tears. Quickly enough, she grabbed a tissue and soaked the tears near her tear ducts. One couldn’t tell if her cheeks were burning red, but her nose had started to pop out like those red tomatoes one would see in salads.

She turned on the tap, and put her hands under the coolness of the flowing tap water, her pink-sparkly nails glistening in the light of the room. She looked at them in sadness, remembering how Caleb had made his sister get a free paint job for them. He’d even chosen the color for her, out of the 100 bottles that she’d been faced with.

Right then, a woman walked in. Her hair moved from side to side as her every step bounced in the stick thin heels she wore on her pale feet. Amelia completely knew who this woman was, she’d seen the many pictures of her at Caleb’s apartment. Her hair had been completely brown in those pictures, with soft waves at the ends, and a beautiful set of ocean blue eyes. She remembered being jealous that day he told her about Kiara.

She’s been my best friend since we were in kindergarten. All the way up to prom night, her whole dress covered in sparkles. Like you,” he’d said with a chuckle. They’d dated all through high school, until she’d broken up with him to study law out of the country. He’d been devastated when she left him, and he’d never dated a soul ever again.

Amelia watched her from the corner of her eye, drying her red hands on a towel, as Kiara opened up a bottle of mascara to re-apply to her already caked with black eyelashes. She wondered what Caleb ever saw in her, besides a woman obsessed with her looks and work. She’d even read about Kiara Meyers, second best lawyer on Jophers street, Tevalia City. Won 203 cases and lost only 2, out of which one of them was reopened 2 days ago, meaning she was in town for awhile.

She continued to watch her, until she herself came up behind Amelia to dry her hands. She caught a glimpse of Kiara’s eyes at that split second, and she felt as if those crystal-like globes had the capability of reading everything that she’d just thought. She even thought she saw a glimpse of recognition in those two blue circles, despite them never really laying eyes on each other before. Kiara’s angular chin cocked sideways, and her eyelashes fluttered as she suddenly began to speak.

“Oh my god! It is really you!” she uttered in a posh voice. Her red lips reminded Amelia of those women who spent thousands on expensive lipstick. She’d almost have fooled herself to think Kiara had blood on her lips, with her smile revealing her sharp canines, as she looked Amelia up and down.

She fiddled with the tissue in her hand as she tried her best to say with trembling lips “Sorry, who are you referring to here?”

“Oh, how silly of me” Kiara responded, a sudden triumphant look in her eyes, as she offered to shake Amelia’s hand, “I’m Caleb’s best friend. Oh! Excuse me, his girlfriend

Amelia’s hand shakingly shook the boney fingers reaching out to her, her dark skin contrasting against her pale and yet soft palm. The light of the room caused the many diamond rings to sparkle on her fingers, and the steel left it’s coolness on her warm palm.

It reminded her of the expose she’d done on this very woman 2 months ago. A lawyer who’d been hardcore on her jobs, and even let murderers go free into the city. Corrupt men who had gotten away with money laundering charges with her as their lawyer. Even her boyfriends had been extremely wealthy people. And Caleb’s recent announcement of being head of the Stories section from next week, meant she could hit the jackpot with just her advantages. The promotion’s  announcement was even on television last week, after his article on the new “Animals Bill” became successful worldwide. Being his girl would mean getting loads of attention, which is why Caleb had gotten 40 different offers from women to go on a date in the past 2 weeks.

Kiara’s blue eyes continued to sparkle as she spoke to Amelia, a sneered tone beginning to hint in her voice “I’ve heard A LOT about you Amelia. Caleb hasn’t even finished one conversation without mentioning you, his ‘Amie bee’ ”

Amelia’s eyes pointed to the floor as her cheeks started to burn with embarrassment, but she felt the sadness of how despite him giving her that special name, it never meant something to him. Kiara looked at her in awe, staring into her leaf green eyes, and Amelia tried her best to focus. She wanted to cry that very second, cry all that pain she felt that Caleb would no longer love her.

But in that moment itself, Amelia realized something. Kiara loved Caleb because of how easy going and loyal he was to the person he thought was his Kiara. It made Amelia want to look at those pretty blue eyes with spite and hate, that she’d do anything to break down that place, make Caleb open his eyes. She wanted him to see how abominable a person Kiara was, how what he thought she still was had died the day she broke up with him.

Caleb didn’t know Kiara’s ugly truth.  The expose was yet to be approved.

 He had to know.

When she finally left the bathroom, Amelia quickly sobbed a little more before heading to her own desk. She just stared at the words on her computer screen, “Kiara Meyers” written in bold as the title, as she she clicked on the “attach to email” button. The account she was using wasn’t hers, it was somebody else’s. It was someone who wanted Caleb to know the truth, to realize who his girlfriend was. One who was wanted Caleb to herself, to love and care and call her his “Amie bee”. Her fingers trembled as she wrote words she’d never imagined to ever utter in front of Caleb. Things she’d never imagined to do to Caleb.

With one final gulp of air, Amelia clicked the ‘send’ button just as she felt the turn of her chair to feel the warm feeling of Caleb’s mouth against hers.

The End

*title credit (most of it) to the Christina Aguilera song: Beautiful. Plus there are places that are fictional in this. 

And that is what I wrote a few weeks ago (after cutting half of it for English Class). I really hope you all like it, and I’d love to get some feedback. I do feel really sorry as I have barely posted a thing for a really long time, but with the stress of projects and Christmas break coming up, I have tons of drafts but nothing to ready enough to publish. I hope this can make it up 🙂

Stay Awesome 😀

Love Never Makes Sense

“Josh, does Coby like Amato?” Vess reluctantly asks, a sad tone to her question. He looks at her face, sort of neutral and doesn’t look away.

“Yes, he does,” he finally says, and Vess’ assumptions are finally confirmed. She’d already guessed it once he kept on walking without her whenever that girl was around. She just needed someone he was close to, to confirm it, make it official for her to finally accept. But she didn’t want to; she wanted it to be that he didn’t like Amato, that he just wanted to see if she really cared about him. But that too is a totally odd idea, but far better than the ugly truth Vess was facing.

“Why, Josh? The same thing happened last year! And then she…”

“She’s not a monster, Vess, not the way you think of her to be. She likes him again, and he does as well. You need to accept that”

“But she did the same thing to me in 6th grade for the guy I liked,” Vess protests, frustrated to the core.

“Yeah, and it was Coby, right?” he says, backing away and going to his friends. Vess looks at him in disbelief, and her happy bubble, bursts, letting a huge glob of depression form around her.

A pain starts to form in her chest, overwhelming her and forming a sudden burden on her that she decides to just go back to her dorm room. Lucy can tell something is wrong, but she keeps quiet as they walk barefoot, the wind blowing on their faces.

Halfway there, the ground becomes stony and cold. Lucy stuffs her feet into her shoes, but Vess just walks bearing the pain. That is how much the thought of losing Coby feels to her, and she keeps feeling it, all the way till they arrive the room. She leaves her shoes outside, walks in, and leans against the wall in wait for the shower. Her friends, confused looks on their faces pass her as they exit the room. But Vess just ignores their many looks, for all she can think about, is the crushing feeling she gets when Amato and Coby walk side by side.

Warm liquid brims up into Vess’ eyes, and it trickles down her burning cheeks, sending down a relief she can’t bring herself to ever feel.
