My Tumbling Journal.

Hello~

Welcome to my tumblr!

My name is Suzy, and I'm currently 18. I'm working on being a pre-med major, and dance minor in college. You can say I'm a hopeless romantic, and I love to bury myself under hundreds of books. Aside from my love for reading and writing, I also love to dance and spin! I marched with the Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets '12 & '13 and those were some of the best experiences i've ever had. Also, I love music, and have been part of a winter percussion as a bass drummer. I hope to continue my marching career with a few more seasons growing as a percussionist. Aside from the idea that my life revolves around Drum Corps and WGI, I also love Anime, Manga, and conventions. Cosplaying is something I do as well, and I absolutely love it! Candy and macarons are my weakness. And I still have a tendency to feel an Irresistible urge to buy cute stuffed animals when I come across them!

However, of course DCI, WGI, dancing, percussion, Candy, macarons and stuffed animals aren't all I love. I also have a tight knit group of close friends that I unconditionally love... And my family as well... And also my Vanguard family as well. :) I love my families.

If you've made it down to my intro this far.... Haha thanks. I'd just like to say, if you're someone who love DCI or WGI just as much, go audition! Don't hold back because before you know it, your age out year will come around. And I can guarantee you that there's no other experience that can replace Drum corps or WGI. "Sometimes you have to be aggressive when you're fighting for something you want. Not aggressive with other, but with yourself because opportunities don't always come easy."

Aside from that, if you ever need someone to talk to feel free to message me. Message me anything :) i'm open to whatever you feel like saying, or if you feel down or need someone to talk to I'm here. And if you're ever going through a tough time in life, know that you're stronger than you think you are and you'll get through. Always Stay strong through every situation because there's always someone that believes in you :)

"BelieVe"

Those bad days.

There are days where it seems like the world is against you, and as a human being it’s inevitable to experience such days. We make mistakes, we over think past, present, and future actions, and we have insecurities.We’ll say things that we don’t mean, and regret it later. We’ll do something wrong, and get frustrated over it. And maybe worse of all, our negative emotions and actions may reflect towards those that we love, causing more resentment. I’ve always been told that those we love the most will be the ones to catch our blows of negativity and anger the most. Often the explanation is because those are the people we love the most, the ones that will be the most forgiving towards us. However this doesn’t always stop us from feeling resentful of our actions, and the day from trailing off into the last straw. This the part where we all need to stop, take a step back, and breathe. Regardless of whether it’s the beginning, middle, or end of the day, the truth is, life’s going to keep going. Momentarily, you probably really hate life, but realize that not all days are going to be this bad. Find something simple that makes you happy, and carry on with the day. Perseverance is the word I think we’re looking for, as silly as it may sound. But on days where I don’t take a step back, and breathe. Those are the days where I find more ways to make the day worse. Don’t, don’t let negativity lead to more until you break down, or give up. Know that maybe today’s just not the day for you, give yourself a little room and time, but don’t stop going. Life doesn’t wait for anyone, but no one else has the right to decide if you’re a failure or not.

My dad brought home a big fish! :D I always get so excited because… Well I mean it’s a fish. Who wouldn’t feel excited when their dad brings home a freshly caught fish! He let me cut it up so we could store what we can’t eat tonight in the fridge :3 I’ve also always been very fond of fish tails since a child. Why? I don’t know, but I’m eating the tail tonight! Yay fresh fish tonight! And I smell like fish :D all the neighborhood cats would like me…. #Fish #FreshlyCaughtFish #FishTail

You are given your shamrock rookie year and you earn a painted washer for every year you march (green first year, orange the second, white the third). 

Thanks to @contra-indication for the photo!

Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment that makes you think, “I just really love you”

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS.

This Thursday, Scotland votes for its independence.

The BBC is trying to report that Yes to Independence is losing. They’re using photos to imply our gatherings are tiny and insignificant instead of the many photos like those above. They’re reporting that an anti-independence march by the Orange Order (think the KKK with more British flags) was a peaceful pro-union family march. They have been caught editing clips to discredit our First Minister.

There is a protest outside BBC headquarters right now. They are claiming there are a maximum of 350 protesters.

Watch for yourself. There are far more people outside their offices right now and they are being ignored and misreported.

We need to be seen. The only way we’ve been able to disseminate accurate information has been through social media. The media we rely on to spread unbiased information is lying to us, trying to suppress us.

PLEASE SHARE. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE NEED OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.

Bloody hell, wasn’t expecting to see EDL Abdul in there. Can never get my head around that guy.

PLEEEEEEAAAASSEE

This is a rare collection of glass eyes used for teaching at the San         Francisco Eye Institute. They were brought around the Horn in 1870 from Austria. They are hand blown glass and depict such diseases as corneal staphyloma, calcific degeneration,         correctopia, corneal scarring, pterygium, corneal         ulcer, scleritis and so on.
