Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 1


As my stats page drops more and more everyday and traffic driving posts aren’t coming to mind, I’ve decided to start a new series. Just late night thoughts and blogging with me, very accurately (this is not the word I wanted to use but I can literally not think of it) named “Late Night Blogging with Mary”. The title image is really big but I’ve worked on it for too long and I give up to be quite honest.

So for this series I’m just going to share my thoughts, like a stream of consciousness type of thing, or just like what I’m up to. I hope to incorporate friends when we have late night talks and thoughts with them and we could share too. You know, just see where it goes.

Tonight I’m thinking about essential oils and how to prevent anxiety when I’m abroad, which will definitely be a whole post. I know that my anxiety gets really bad when I’m uncomfortable. So I’m really trying to plan ahead because I know there will definitely be things that will make me uncomfortable when I’m gone, but I will never want to let that stop me from doing what I want to do in life. Yet that will be a whole post.

I’m also thinking about how I just dyed my hair partially purple and that I really like it. It comes out after like two or three washes. I think I’ll show pictures eventually or maybe next time I do it because I’m definitely going to do it again. I’ve always wanted to dye the tips of my hair a color and I finally did. It feels like refreshing, like out with the old, in with the new, even though it’s only temporary. Maybe one day I’ll do something more permanent…

Today my mom and I were talking about my birthday, because it’s her birthday today. But we were talking about mine because it’s a bigger one, I’m turning 21 in September, however, my birthday is five days after I get to Ireland, where it’s really not as big of a deal and I won’t have friends. So it’s different.

So I’m going on vacation next week and I haven’t said anything about it yet. That’s what I miss about daily blogging. Like I don’t know why I don’t share like things like that anymore, it’s just like a difference. I guess I feel like since I’m sharing less I should like do great quality posts but because of that it’s like whatever now, there’s a lot less character.

One last thing are there like American blogging networks? I follow Loz on Twitter and she and a few other are always tweeting like #nzbloggers (like New Zealand because that’s where she’s from, isn’t that cool??) but is there one for Americans? The blogging community is super interesting to me, but how do I get involved? Anyone know? Is this a thing or should I like start a hashtag or something? Anyone???

Another thing, like what is that saying I was looking for up at the top? If you know, please tell me.

What are we thinking about this new series? Yes? No? Maybe so?

    I would definitely recommend trying to find a blogging community! I’ve found it so helpful and motivating.

      I see that on your twitter and some of your blogging friends have followed me since (thank you :)) but I haven’t found anything like that stateside unfortunately. It is something I would really be interested in.

      • Loz June 25, 2015 / 10:20 pm

        I’ll ask if anyone knows of a group!

        • Mary June 25, 2015 / 10:23 pm

          Aw thank you so much, I seriously appreciate it!

            So apparently Chelsea @chowdownusa hosts a weekly #usbloggers chat on twitter, Thursdays 8pm EST :)

    I personally really like the “Late Night Blogging With Mary” name and idea. I’ve also thought of the whole dying the tips of my hair a different color, but I think I’m kind of over that whole thing, since I’ve used both temporary and permanent dye in the past but then in the end, I always seem to get bored and miss my natural color.

    I hope you have a great time on your vacation in a week and remember when you go to Ireland, that I’m here if you need to talk (this also goes for any other time as well!)

      Aww thank you! I really appreciate it

    Definitely a YES. Also, for essential oils, Molly and her family are really into them so she probably knows magical weird ones like dragons or something, but I started to dabble in them for my migraines and I think the ones I use would be good for you possibly. My favorite is peppermint because it feels cool and it’s tingly when I put it on my temples and forehead and that helps distract from the pain and might be good for you to concentrate on. I also like lavendar because it’s calming and it’s what babies use for naps, sleep and baths so it might have a calming effect on you. Also, I want to see this purple hair, especially when it’s curly! Also this should be called “Mary after Dark”

      I have to research them more. I’m very particular about smells. I darkened it today so it’ll stand out more when I see you tomorrow :)Oooo I like that better! Since I named it, is it too late to change it?

      • paperbackwriter21 June 25, 2015 / 10:56 pm

        We can do essential oils research because I want more haha…there’s a sampler kit on amazon I was thinking of getting. Yay! can’t wait to see it, and I was kidding about the name…sort of…I think you can change it if it sticks better just say you came up with one and made the idea more concrete

    Oh gosh! I just had a friend get back from 6 weeks in Ireland for a mid evil writing class. Apparently sheep are ALL over the place. Essential oils are great, I love the scent of lavender to relax. Bath and Body Works has an aromatherapy line that’s nice.

      I’ve been there twice before and it’s amazing how they just roam everywhere! Farmers spray their fur with colors so they know which are theirs! I’ll check that out, thank you!!
