Inauguration Day

The day the whole United States has been anticipating is finally here. And you know what? I feel amazing. I am excited to see what the next 4 years bring. For a long time this country has needed change. I am not saying President Trump is the best choice. But between him and Hillary he definitely was. The country has already been under Hillary’s”command” before. It was time for someone else to be in charge. 

Although I am excited for the next four years. I also fear for those innocent people in areas where the rioting is happening. They are just people trying to live their lives. They aren’t out there trying to riot, they are trying to get home or to work. I hope that the riots are peacefully. I don’t care what you are rioting about the moment it becomes violent I don’t support you. 

I hope you all have a great and safe day.

What Was Your Most Prized Possession as a Child?

Not to long ago, before iPods and CD’s there were tape players. Some of you may even remember them. Well I had one. It was Little Tikes brand and had a cool little microphone. Like most tape players you could record tapes, every once in a while my mom would buy my tapes so that I could record things. This tape player was the bomb. I can honestly say it was my most prized possession as a child. I took it everywhere with me. I even took it when I ran away one summer. As I got older I out grew the need of a tape player, mostly because technology evolved. But I never got rid of the tape player, and I have kept in a box full of childhood memoirs to someday show my own children.

Flying Mugs

One thing I really hate about the winter is how easy it is to get sick. I have been fighting off a cold for the past few days, and I am losing. I have been trying to just take it easy and rest. While resting I enjoy drinking tea. (I may have a tea obsession). Well today I went to get a mug out of the cupboard and I open my cupboard and out flies a mug. The mug hit me on the stomach and then shattered on the floor. Mind you I have been in just a bathrobe all day. I started screaming and my dad comes rushing into the room. I am standing in the kitchen with a shattered mug on the floor, and he says to me “What is going on in here?” So I proceed to tell him what had happened and then he accused me of putting the mug there so that when he opened the cupboard it would take him out. I, of course, denied the accusation since I would never do anything like that. We joked about it for a few minutes.

You may wonder why I am telling you this, and here it is. Always make sure that mugs are not in a position that they could fall out of the cupboard because it hurts like a b**ch when they hit you.

10 Reasons I am Never Leaving Home

Since winter is here I have done a lot of reflecting on how great living with my dad is. I decided to compile a list so others can understand why I am never leaving home. 

  1. I don’t have to shovel the driveway. 
  2. I don’t have to scrape snow of my car. 
  3. I have 3 cars that I can drive so depending on the forecast I can chose a car best suited for the day. 
  4. We have a house cleaner. 
  5. I don’t take out the garbage. 
  6. I don’t do dishes 
  7. My bedroom has 4 closets. 
  8. I don’t have to go grocery shopping 
  9. I don’t have to put gas in my car. 
  10. And last but not least I don’t have to pay any of the bills that come by living on your own. 

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now…

If I could go anywhere in the world this moment, I would go to the Galapagos islands. Why you ask? Have you ever seen pictures? The water looks so blue not to mention it is warm there. The Galapagos islands are known for some of the best spots for wildlife observation, which we know from Darwin’s observations, in fact there is even an island named after him. 

The scoop on septum piercing

I have always wanted to get my septum pierced. I love that this piercing can be hidden and if for some reason you decided that you no longer wanted it, there would be no visible scar. I finally worked up the courage to get it pierced (I hate needles). 

Of course I went to a professional piercing studio, the last thing I want is to get some disease just because I wanted a piercing. You don’t get a ton of choices when it comes to the initial jewelry, once it’s healed you can switch to something else. I chose a silver (horseshoe) piece so that I would be able to flip it up while I am at work. 

I went back to the room where they pierce you. The piercer explained the procedure and had me lay back onto a table. She then sanitized my nose and began prepping for the piercing. It was at this moment I began regretting my decision. I almost got up and left. I was so scared it would hurt. She covered my face with a paper towel and then gave me breathing instructions. She told me that she would pierce on the second breath out. To myself I was thinking why did you say anything just surprise me. But I did as I was instructed and she pierced on the first great out!!! I was so happy she did. I already had a lot of anxiety. 

Surprisingly it didn’t hurt at all. Because of the location my eyes did water a little bit, but it wasn’t bad. It felt like more of a tickle. Next she had to put the jewelry in. I am a bleeder. I am the kind of person that when I get cut there is a lot of blood. Being the person I am I did warn my piercer about this. As she pulled the needle. I could feel the blood running out of my nose. She quickly cleaned it up and finished. Afterwards she did tell me that there is hardly any blood with septum piercings. But I had the most she had seen for that piercing. 

The aftercare is pretty easy. I have to wash with a saline solution twice a day and in three months I can switch my jewelry. I absolutely love my septum piercing and the whole process was not bad at all. If you are thinking of getting one I would recommend just doing it. It wasn’t painful and it was a real quick process. 

As you can see in the picture it is a small piece of jewelry. I love the way it looks. 

When I Grow Up I Want To Be….

Every kid has been asked this question countless times. Of course the answers change as the child gets older.In high school, there are classes and programs to help you choose the best career for you. I remember when I was in one of these classes I told the teacher I wanted to go to Harvard and be a Lawyer. The teacher laughed at me and told me my GPA wasn’t high enough to do that. After that day I really just gave up one school and figured I would be happy with whatever life handed me. (Don’t get me wrong I love what I do)

But do you ever stop and think if I could be anything you want, no holes barred, what you would be? Of course, my first choice would be a celebrity. I would love to be famous. I would love going to fancy parties, have everyone know who I am, have lots of money. After awhile I think it would get pretty boring.

I think I would much rather be a princess in one of the Disney Parks.I would love to make children smile. I would love acting like a princess all the time. I would love to wear the pretty dresses. I really think a job like that would suit me well. And in a way, it would be a celebrity of sorts.

 

 

It’s Been Awhile

Summer is my favorite time of year. I love the sun and all the outdoor activities. Unfortunately all the summer activities have distracted me and I haven’t had a chance to post any new articles. However, I do have a few great ideas that I am super excited to start. Stay tuned for some amazing new things.

Snow Cones-Adult Version

Summer is here and you know what that means!!!! Snow cones are in season. Besides the really nice weather snow cones are my favorite thing about summer. I love the nice cold feeling of snow cone in your mouth on a hot summery day. Nothing can beat it.

My favorite flavor of snow cone is grape. I had some grape Smirnoff leftover from a party and decided that my snow cone would be even better with a little bit of alcohol in it. Well it was. I add some of the grape Smirnoff into my grape snow cone and it was delicous. I would defiantly recommend trying it. ( I would get alcohol that is the same flavor as your snow cone or that pairs best rather than straight alcohol.)

***Please follow your local laws when it comes to alcohol consumption. This post is not meant to entice underage drinking***

Grandparents

I use to think I had young grandparents. When I was little all of my grandparents were still alive. They would play with us when we would go and visit. They were never in the hospital. Freak, I still have a great grandmother alive. The last couple of weeks I have realized just how luck I was. Over a month ago my mom’s dad was admitted into the hospital because of an infection in his leg. Two weeks ago he had his leg amputated. The day after that my dad’s dad went to the hospital for a minor surgery. Then tonight my dad’s mom had to go to the emergency room because of a work injury. Needless to say I have spend quite a bit of time at hospitals over the past few weeks. In a way it makes me just want to run away. But in another way it makes me really grateful for the family I have. My family is so caring and loving. Everyday someone has been up to visit one of my grandparents or has been by their side while in the hospital. I really couldn’t ask for a better family. I am so glad that I have been able to know my grandparents and learn from them. I know that someday I will look back at this time and be grateful that I got to go through this. If you still have grandparents alive please cherish them, thank them, hug them, spend time with them. You never know when something may happen.
