This is Halloween

Today is the glorious day of Halloween.
Yes, the day where it's socially acceptable to dress the way you want.
Whether that be a promiscuous bumble bee or a creepy clown, you may do as you please.
This year, I'm being Marceline from Adventure Time (pictures to come tonight or tomorrow) and I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to be for my party tomorrow.
I was going to be Suzy Bishop from Moonrise Kingdom, but I can't find a pair of binoculars and my dress isn't done.
I was browzing pinterest in my lovely Bio class and below are some things that have sparked ideas in my head and other ideas I have for my party!

Le Temps de L'amour

Hello my fellow comrades, I have an Outfit of the Day for you, along with my fall inspirations!
I got a little bored, and it was gorgeously rainy out so I decided to get my good ol' camera out and see if I could get anything interesting. But, I'll start off with things that have been inspiring me this fall.

Straight from 1968.
My favorite shot from today. I just love the way it turned out.

This picture was actually an accident! But I'm really liking it. What do you think?

DIY Saddle Shoes
These are some white shoes that I made into saddle shoes, and I'm thinking about finding another pair and making a YouTube video out of it!

One of Those Days

Well, Today.
Today is just one of those days where I question everything about my life, and the world around me.
It's the sort of day where I sit in my room listening to "I Can Tell that We are Gonna Be Friends" by the White Stripes and Bon Iver on repeat.
One of those days.
But I might as well use these feelings to create something.
So I present to you a brand new blog post!
Time for a story?
Well, not really a story. (sorry for just shattering your dreams)
But I want to talk about thoughts and life and stuff that isn't really brought up as often as I think it should.
As a junior in high school, I have little experience with real life. I don't know what it's like to live on my own, pay my own bills, or hold a career. I've only had little experiences with it.
What I do know is what it feels like to not know where you're going in life, or how it feels to be lost and confused, unable to make a decision.
I've delved into many different interests. I play instruments, I draw, I read, I play video games, I take AP Physics... But I still don't know where I'm going in life.
I used to be dead set on being an Astrophysicist, but recently, I've begun to have doubts. How can I choose just one thing and stick with that the rest of my life?
I love astronomy, and I love physics. But I always feel this need to express myself and create things I had never done before. Am I able to do that when I have to be in school until I'm 30? Will I have the time to delve into other interests?
Recently, I've been constantly thinking these things and it's making me question everything that I am.
Does my life have direction? Am I using every second I can to the best extent that I am able?
I know that all teenagers have these thoughts, everyone goes through what I am. Yet I feel so isolated. 
What is it about high school that makes me feel so lonely, I wonder.
And today, I finally realized, it's not that I feel lonely but unsuccessful. 
I spend so much of my time reading blogs and watching fashion YouTube videos that I start to think that it's common for many people to have that much of a prominence in society.
When thinking about this further, I started to come to a conclusion. We are so often exposed to the media. Millions follow celebrities, knowing so much about them, idolizing them. Are they really greater than the rest of us? Most of the time, it's not personality but looks that puts them into that position. And these looks are achieved through unnatural ways. So in reality there's nothing that makes them more superior to us, we just think they're better. We want to be like them.
But today I decided I no longer want to be like someone, no, I want to be myself.

As cliché as that is, it is honestly the truth. I'm sick of altering my interests and thoughts to appear like someone else. I just want to be the best me that I can be.
"So tell me, how can you do that? It's impossible!" Is what you're most likely thinking.
But I am telling you right now that it is not impossible. I know that I'm not going to eradicate myself of imperfections, or low self esteem, or just wanting to plain fit in sometimes. But it's the fact that I'm willing to accept that is what will let me be who I want to be and who I am. So what do I want to be?
Not a clue. 
What I do know is that if I use my time to create, and to think, and to be happy I can accomplish something and make my opinions known.
My name is Megan Fox and I am just that.

Today in school, I was reminded of something that is very dear to me.
Super Mario Galaxy.
Now to get a better understanding of why this game is so special, you need to get an understanding of me.
I love Space. I mean, I LOVE space.
It has always interested me, and this game just felt unreal as to how awesome it was. (and still is!)
When I finally got this game 4 years ago, I was obsessed.
One of my most vivid memories of this game is staying up all night with my best friend, with some Gatorade Rain, in my sister's room.
My sister was in her freshman year of college (and we weren't supposed to be in there! shh), but we had a blast.
It's really odd thinking back to the times when I had less stress and less to focus on.
I just love reminiscing about things that bring me happiness.
What are some of your favorite memories?

It's the Life

This weekend was really a fantastic weekend. 
I spent a lot of time with my friend Nicole, who is quite a groovy gal.
We went thrifting/cupcake hunting (with no luck), and to our dismay, not a lot of luck with either of those things.
Delicious apple cider~
We ended up in this local coffee shop and I got some delicious apple cider.
Autumn is definitely my favorite season. I love the savory tastes, the neutral colors, it's all so aesthetically pleasing. 
I spent some time at my dad's house and so much exposure to nature really inspires me to create something beautiful.
Here are a few things I found inspiring or pleasing to my eyes:
(and the outfits I wore this weekend)

Star Wars :)

Shirt is thrifted, H&M pants, Madden Girl boots.

14 inch classic Oxford Satchel, Forever 21 Dress,  Sears Tights,  Madden Girl Boots

I took this photo at 2 AM last night, I think it's so fantastic. 

(This is Nicole, by the way.)
I'm really excited because my dad is letting me borrow his Nikon D200, which takes wondrous pictures. Expect more fall-related posts with some pictures taken by yours truly this week.
I'll catch ya later!

C'est Moi!

Hello everyone!
My name is Megan Fox, and I am happy to say I am finally starting this blog.
I am a lover of all things thrifted and vintage, so I thought I would showcase my love to the world in a useful way.
I will be posting DIYs, outfit of the days, photography, inspiration, and lovely things in general.
I'm really excited to start this.
I hope I can bring inspiration to those who need it.
But enough with introductions, let's get posting!
