I don’t even know how to introduce myself. There is so much I feel like the world needs to know about me.
- My name is Cassidy. Sometimes I forget that that’s my actually name because I’m only referred to as ‘Cass’ or idiot. Either one is fine with me.
- I graduated high school a semester early. I really hated school. Nothing was appealing to me about people judging you on what shoes you wear or sitting in a classroom all day when I didn’t need to be there.
- I’m going to University of Cincinnati in the fall. Minus the fact that their school color is red and I look good in red, I chose there for a few reasons. I wanted to get out of Indiana, live in a city, and study fashion design. So really, I didn’t pick Cincy. IT PICKED ME!
- I read my horoscope and look up my dreams every single day. Nothing makes me more excited than knowing that Gigi Hadid is a Taurus and my reoccurring dream of being kidnapped doesn’t mean it’s a sign I’m going to be taken. Which I would be okay with, as long as I’m taken by a Kardashian.
There are so many things going on in my life and so many things coming up. I’m working full time, giving me the opportunity to get experience in the fashion world, along with meeting some of the coolest people EVER. I leave for Mexico in two weeks, and not to mention.. I’M STAYING AT THE COOLEST PLACE IN CANCUN. You already know I’m filming the whole freaking trip. I get back from Mexico and four days later is prom, which will of course be a mixture of girl’s hooking up with other girl’s boyfriends and white girls (me) trying to dance.
A few weeks after that I turn 18 aka I will be an ADULT. Like officially. and I’m so scared and so excited all at once. I can’t wait to be on my own and put everything that my parents taught me to use. I can’t wait to experience new things be out in the world without anyone stopping me. BUT I’M SO SCARED. Like who is going to remind me to blow out my candles before I go to bed or to not to online shop just because a boy broke my little heart or because my dog doesn’t want to sleep in my bed with me. College is going to open so many doors for me though. I got accepted into every school I applied for which gave me a slight confidence boost considering I never thought I was going to pass my required art classes or the college composition class I took WITH THE WORST TEACHER EVER. I found the cutest roommates ever. Lexi, Grace, and Emma all dress cool, have cute instagrams, and it’s just like… I know we’re going to thrive together.
Although I graduated early and good things are being thrown at me left and right, not everything is always so great! I swear. These past few months have pretty much s-u-c-k-e-d. Working full time has been a huge adjustment. Trying to balance work, my family, my friends, and all the other things I have to manage in life has been so hard for me. The only thing I have been able to consistently keep up with is seeing my grandma (my grandma is my best friend and if yours isn’t, that really, really, really sucks). While I was thriving not being in school or dealing with drama, people seemed to forget that word gets around. Rumors were constantly spread about me and it screwed a lot of things up for a hot minute. Now looking back at it, those rumors got me out of some sticky situations. They made me realize so many things and gave me the time to realize the people that I do and don’t need in my life. It was a real reality check for me, I let a lot of things that were important to me slip. Now, I’m back to living my crazy life. Doing dumb things that’ll I’ll for sure tell my kids about with the girls I work with, getting pulled over with my best friend, piercing each other’s ears and me passing out on the floor, doing things that teenagers should do. It’s hard to be stressed when you get invited to a party where everyone has to dress up like a meme or vine and then having to go pick your bff up from the airport right after.
I have a lot of goals in life. Some of them are stupid, for example, not throwing up when I eat sushi or not saying the word “dude” or “dope” in every other sentence. Not watching Friends all the way through 6 times, not tripping over my own feet, maybe doing my laundry more often, I don’t know. My goals just come to me as I go.
I don’t know where life is going to take me and I don’t care to know. I like to go with the flow. But, I do like to believe that one day I’ll be big in fashion or I’ll travel the world with my best friend or even meet Ellen (because who doesn’t want to meet Ellen).
I wanted to have a place where I could document my life. I want to remember when Zara featured me on their snapchat story or when I swore Harry Styles made eye contact with me. I want to remember singing Party in the USA while parasailing or singing karoake at a bar that I shouldn’t have sang at. I have had so many cool experiences in life, whether that be from my family, my best friends, the girl who did my senior pictures, the Mcdonald’s drive through lady that gives me a free coke every time I go to get fries. I just want to share everything that happens to me, not just to show people how freakin’ cool my life is, but so I can have a reminder of these things down the road.
I hope you stick around and see where life and my red checkered vans take me. Everything crazy that has happened in my life has happened when I was wearing those vans and I will swear by that until the day I die.
