TMI Tag

“Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage. Just literally 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” From “We Bought a Zoo” and it’s really a quote I’ve been trying to live by because I think it’s true. Most great things happen from a whim, go for it.

“Somes all you need is a hug from your mom, they fix everything.” Me unless I read that or someone told it to me and it just stuck in my brain as my own, if so I apologize. This quote is very true, if you are ever having a bad day, you can just get a hug from your mom or a mom like figure and it fixes everything, they are really magical.

Girl Power Tag!

I was recently honored to be tagged in the Girl Power Tag by Jona, a beautiful blogger who writes about basic college stuff from fitness and health to funny emails (okay they aren’t meant to be funny) her college sends her to even reviews on beauty products. Jona also takes really good pictures that she puts with her posts, and that just adds to them.  She is a true inspiration to bloggers. Here is her post that will also connect you to her blog, which I highly suggest to everyone http://jona562662.wordpress.com/2014/02/10/girl-power-tag/.

Anyway it was an ironic kind of funny when she tagged me in this because as soon as I read that I was tagged in this (via email, before reading her post) I read my copy of Seventeen Magazine which is what the tag is based off of. So with that random bit of randomness, without further ado I present the Girl Power Tag.

What does girl power mean to you?

To me girl power is being self-confident and not worrying about what people think about you, especially men. It’s empowering when you can be 100% yourself without the constant fear of judgement, and that’s girl power. Be yourself in a situation where it’s hard or you want to conform to someone else’s opinion of you.

What the best advice you can give to girls who want to be powerful?

Be yourself. Don’t try and be Taylor Swift, Hillary Clinton, Miley Cyrus, Michelle Obama, Jennifer Aniston, Tina Fey, the Queen of England, or your mom, be who you are and who you want to be. Just because society loves those people and they’re awesome doesn’t mean that they’ll love you or think you’re awesome when you try and be someone you aren’t. These women became powerful by being themselves and embracing who they were and their own talents.

If you could have one superpower what would it be and how would you use it?

I would without a doubt read people’s minds. I would want to know who really likes me and who wishes I wouldn’t hang around. I hate wasting my time with people who don’t care since I did that most of high school. I want to know what people are really thinking so I know who really cares and who really doesn’t. Plus this would be an advantage when it comes to jobs, tests, and all those things, you would know what the evaluator really wants to hear. I know that kind of contradicts my earlier point, but be yourself once you get the job or you get a perfect test be yourself in a better position. 

What makes you feel powerful?

The one thing that makes me feel really powerful is expressing my opinion and people listening to it and respecting it. I have really strong feelings about certain things sometime (I know super specific) and sharing those and having people listen just makes me feel powerful. Jona also included that the original question was what beauty product makes you feel powerful and to answer that one really quickly I would have to say concealer  because it hides my blemishes and helps me feel more confident which definitely leads to feeling powerful.

Why is it important to have powerful girls as role models?

It’s important to have powerful girls as role models because they give you someone to look up to and aspire to be like. Someone who is powerful and is doing amazing things with their lives are great people to look up to and be inspired by. Powerful women influence our lives because they give us important things to think about and aspire to be. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the influence of powerful women.

What other young women do you think are powerful and why?

The first two women I am going to mention some of you may not know, but if you know anything about the British YouTube Crew you probably know them. They are Louise and Zoe from Sprinkle of Glitter and Zoella. Not only are they YouTubers but they are also bloggers. Louise is a mom, but she is still super inspiring. She posts on Instagram nearly everyday about her working out for her New Years Resolution and if that’s not inspiring enough she makes videos on how to be body confident and various other subject matter like that. She was actually my inspiration to start blogging for real rather than half ass it.  Zoe is also a huge inspiration because she does talks with Louise where they give advice on topics like college, weight, and other various serious things. I also think that she helps people like myself with anxiety. She is an example of how much you can do when it’s hard to get out of bed.

So for those of you who don’t know them, I would have to say that Miley Cyrus is definitely a powerful woman. She is destroying her previous reputation and even though she’s gone a little crazy she’s still making an impact. She’s being herself and anyone can see that. She is no longer Hannah Montana and she is finally showing the world who she really is.

So that’s it for the tag, I hope you guys liked it. Since I was actually tagged in something for once instead of just doing it, I decided that I should tag some people too! So here it goes, you guys should also check out the blogs! These ladies are super cool and nice and awesome! I hope they enjoy and maybe actually do this, so hint hint ladies, I would like you to do this!

My Life in 20 Questions!

Okay, it’s been decided, every other week will be Tag Tuesdays. Some Tuesdays will be no posts and other ones will just be random posts or serious posts, or whatever, and Tag Tuesdays might even go down to once a month just because it’s hard finding ones I like. Anywho, onto the questions. Also first a question, is anywho a word? Sometimes spellcheck underlines it and other times it doesn’t so is it a word? Because I really like it.

1.  What is your favorite color? I hate this question, I don’t believe in favorite colors and I refuse to answer it.

2.  What is your favorite number? 5. I like odd numbers only please.

3.  What is your dream career? To be honest, this would be an awesome career to just blog and travel blog about it, but also help people. I really want to work for an NGO and teach English to women in Africa, as well as subjects like math and other basics so that they can teach the kids so that they don’t become dependent upon foreigners teaching everyone.

4.  Where do you see yourself living when you’re on your own?  I hope either on the west coast like Seattle, or somewhere in California, or in London or Dublin, two of my favorite cities in the world.

5.  Where is your favorite place to travel? I love London and Dublin, but when I travel I like to go to new places and new cities. I really want to go to Charleston, South Carolina.

6.  What do you do in your free time? Free time? Thats a thing? No when I have that I like to crochet, read, watch Netflix, okay so I guess free time is a regular day for me… Awkward.

7.  Favorite clothing stores? Forever 21, when they have good clothes, I feel like they’re hit or miss a lot of the time. I also love American Eagle, but I’m also poor so that doesn’t happen a lot. Finally Target, I love it so much also because they have more than just clothes.

8.  Dream car? No car…? I have a love/hate relationship with driving, I don’t really like it but I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t drive. So I’d rather just live in a city where I can get everywhere by walking or public transportation like subways and stuff. 

9.  What TV shows can’t you live without? Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds, and whatever my addiction of the week is.

10.  Three people you need in your life. Well I can’t just pick three so I’m going to do three groups. My parents, they are always there for me, like I am always amazed at how supportive they are of me no matter what, and I know I can go to them with any problem but also things I’m proud of and they’ll be proud too.  My best friends, Katie, Lindsay, and Hannah, I honestly don’t know what I would do without these three ladies, no matter how bad of a day I’m having and I need to rant they’re there to listen and make me laugh. I couldn’t ask for a better support system. Finally, but not least important, I need God. I mean He’s always listening, so I guess He probably hears the things in my head that no one should hear, but He does protect me and answers my prayers, whether I like the answers or not.

11.  I can’t sleep without my old, ratty, “chew” bunny, or an extra pillow, I always need something to hold in my arms while I fall asleep.

12.  If you were given a million dollars all for yourself what would you do with it?  I know it says all for myself but the first thing I would do is pay off my parents house, pay for my college, and then my sisters, and then with whatevers left I would travel for a summer. Hopefully there’s no taxes on this million dollars.

13.  I have a celebrity crush on… Zac Efron, first and foremost who doesn’t? Then if you consider YouTubers celebrities, which some people do and some people don’t, Joe Sugg, but I feel like I know him so it’s almost like a real crush, which is creepy. Very very creepy.

14.  What is your favorite treat to eat? Chocolate. I love it so much. I could marry it.

15.  My favorite animals are… Giraffes. They are so majestic and beautiful and I love them so much.

16.  What is your favorite season? Fall because I don’t like the heat and all the bees finally start to go away.

17.  My favorite childhood shows were… Lizzie McGuire, That So Raven, Even Stevens, I guess you get the gist, Disney Channel shows basically.

18.  Why did you start blogging? Well when I entered college my plan was to be a communications major with a concentration in journalism and I thought it would be a good start, but now I don’t want to do that I still love blogging though and I don’t plan on ever stopping.

19.  What do you hold close to your heart? My grandmom, she died two years ago this month and I will always keep her close to my heart. She was an amazing woman when she was alive, and that will always stay with me and when I make big decisions I try to think of advice she would give me because she was always so wise.

20.  What is one music artist that you are in love with? Well I’m going to assume this questions means with their music and that would be Taylor Swift, and that used to be a super cliche white girl thing and I don’t think it is anymore because now the super cliche white girl thing to do is make fun of her, but that’s not cool.

Anyway so this is actually basically my life but that was the point of the tag, so I guess it worked. 

XOXO

The Throwback Tag

So guys I haven’t really had the best day today, or even a good day like I was expecting.  My anxiety has been really bad day and I have had multiple panic attacks today so I decided instead of ranting about how bad it is again to just do a simple sort of tag and since I like them it might even help me feel a little bit more relaxed.

Here it is: The Throwback Tag

What year were you born in? 1994

Do you have any pictures of yourself from when you were younger? I only have one on my computer but I’ll be sure to include it in the end :)

What TV shows did you watch growing up? Rugrats, Lizzie McGuire, That’s So Raven, Even Stevens, Full House, and so many others I’ve always been TV addicted, whoops.

What were your favorite toys to play with? Well my best friend Hannah and I would only play things like Barbies occasionally and the only thing I really really remember us doing is making “muck” which was water mixed with anything we could get our hands on in her backyard.

What is the most embarrassing thing that you can remember doing? This is such a hard thing to answer because I would always do things on purpose to see how big of an idiot I could make of myself, something I look back on as really embarrassing is in the 8th grade each week I would pretend to be someone/something different, like I one week I was Hannah Montana, and then the next week I was like I duck I think. Surprisingly the same year I was voted most likely to be president…

Something you wrote in kindergarten.

Three songs you loved to listen as a child. “Sk8er Boi” by Avril Lavigne, “He Loves U Not” by Dream, and of course the whole entire High School Musical soundtrack, but my favorite song off of it had to be (and still is) “Start of Something New” and obviously it’s because it’s what the whole thing is centered around, duhhhh.

What was one funny thing you dressed up as for Halloween when you were younger? I believe it was in the 5th grade I dressed up as a prisoner, handcuffs and all, I even went as far as drawing on a unibrow and goatee and pulled my hair up to look like a man. 

Share a funny story of something you remembering happening when you were young. Well gather round boys and girls, one day my friend Hannah and I were going around my development trying to catch frogs, which we did, and we kept them in the bucket, when one jumped out in front of my scooter, and of course I didn’t want to hit it so I slammed my foot down and flipped my scooter! So needless to say I seriously hurt myself, and needed stitches, but didn’t get them so I have a pretty cool scar on my elbow.

Are there any special things you’ve kept from when you were a child?  I like to keep everything, but I’d say the most special thing that I’ve kept is my little stuffed bunny that has a rattle in it, not gonna lie, I still sleep with it and I’m 19.

What was something weird you did as a child? Well I did a lot of weird things as a kid, but I’d say the weirdest thing I did was play this game with myself where I would go and hide until my mom started freaking out that I ran away and then I would emerge laughing and I would typically get in trouble for this. I would also play board games alone, guess that’s weird too.

What’s the scariest thing that happened to you when you were younger? One halloween my friends and I went alone and these boys tried to attack us but I called my mom and she called Hannah’s dad and he came with a bat and threatened to beat them up so yeah there’s that.

How is the world different now from when you were a child? Well this is depressing, I guess I would say it’s not as easy.  As I got older everything got harder, plus it’s more expensive since I need more than candy and toys now, but I still want those too!

Here’s the picture of my cousin and I from when we were really little kids, yeah I was cute once.

Well anyway guys I’m headed off to bed now because I have to be up pretty early for work tomorrow, and I still have to find my pants before I go to bed. I know these aren’t exactly popular on my channel but I want to try and do a post a day and with how I’m feeling today this is the best it was going to get. Hope you could at least laugh at my childhood adventures a little bit. Thanks for reading!

XOXO

Mary

P.S. Question to anyone who pays the $18 a year for their website name, why do you do so? I’m thinking about doing it and I need some other opinions on the matter so feel free to chime in on why you made the decision to either pay for it or not in my comment section. Thanks for the input!

Best friend tag!

Well this one is Lindsay’s post and it makes me miss my best friend :'(

Musings of Lindsay

So Mary (https://marysaverageadventures.wordpress.com) just tagged me in the best friend tag. My answers are nowhere near as great as hers though. She got every single one right and I don’t think I got any. :( Wuv you Mary don’t hate me

1. How and when did you meet?  We met on an airplane from London to Ireland when I was very awkward and clumsy and sleepy. I’m surprised she talked to me after that.
2. What’s your favorite memory together? I don’t know I have so many oh my god. I think maybe the day we went on my birthday adventure!
3. Describe each other in one word.  Unique hehe.
4. What’s her dream job? She changes her mind every day but she wants to do something where she can travel.
5. What’s her favorite makeup brand? I don’t knoooow.
6. What is something that annoys you about the other…

The Best Friend Tag.

Hopefully she doesn’t kill me… One of my best friends, Lindsay, also has a blog on here that I would like to once again promote because she is one funny kid, and that is http://musingsoflindsay.wordpress.com/.  We were on Google Chat the other day and she said something about doing the best friend tag, so I’m going to tag her in this, and I’m going to give my answers and then on her blog she (hopefully) gives  you her answers. We should probably do this together, but I’m surprising her because who doesn’t like surprises? Oh wait- she doesn’t really. Sorry!

1. How and when did you meet?  Well this is actually a really funny story, Lindsay was on the same trip as me when I went to Europe. We didn’t really become friends until later on but the first time I remember meeting her was on the plane to Ireland from London. Apparently she had not slept well on the first plane so she fell asleep before we even took off, but before that happened she took her head phones out of her bad and the were covered in cheese (I think) and I just remember being like “This girl is so weird.”  I either must’ve said something or she noticed the disgust on my face (I don’t know why I was so appalled,) and she explained to me that exploded due to the air pressure on the first plane. So that was my first impression of this kid I now proudly call my best friend.
2. What’s your favorite memory together? This is actually a really hard question to answer so I’m going to do two. The first was when we were in Belgium, Lindsay thought it would be really funny to keep photo bombing my pictures (I’ll put one or two at the end) but I didn’t even and get annoyed (which I would at most people) and that’s when I knew our friendship was real.  My second one is probably  over the summer on one of our Hershey trips our other two friends Katie and Jade were being weird so for once in our life we took a decent selfie, and that was just really nice of Lindsay-which is always a surprise.  But seriously all of my memories with her are fantastic and I miss her a lot. Well that just took an emotional turn. Sorry.
3. Describe each other in one word.  Lindsay is awkward.
4. What’s her dream job? I think it’s still an actuary (that’s a really good math job) but she also wants to go on tour with bands or do something with bands I think.
5. What’s her favorite makeup brand? I have no clue.
6. What is something that annoys you about the other person?  The problem with me is when someone annoys me I learn to ignore it so I don’t actually know what annoys me about her because if something does I already ignore it, but I don’t think there really is anything either.
7. If you could go anywhere in the world together, where would it be and why? Our group of friends just wants to travel everywhere together. If I had to pick one place I’d probably pick London though because it’s so pretty and we already have really good memories together there and it would be nice to make some more and have some with Jade too.
8. Favorite inside joke? 4/4. I’m not really sure, we have a lot. 4/4 isn’t really a joke, it’s just something we say.
9. Who takes longer to get ready in the morning? Umm I’m not actually sure, it depends on if I decide to do my hair- if I do then me, if not then we’re probably about equal.  We’re both always ready way before Katie that’s for sure.

Okay so I’m assuming the next few are about her, we’re probably supposed to do this together and that’s why I shouldn’t have made this a surprise. So when you read this Lindsay, correct me if I’m wrong.

10. Favorite season? Fall? Although it should be summer when we get to hang out (just saying).
11. Favorite song? I have no idea, I would guess either a 5sos song or One Direction but that would be wrong
12. Heels or flats? Considering I have never seen her wear heals I’m going to guess flats.
13. Pants or dresses? She usually wears pants… But she also just bought a dress she can’t wait to wear so maybe I’m wrong.
14. Favorite animal? Giraffe.
15. If her house was burning down, and her entire family was sure to be okay, what would she save and why? I think she would save her phone and her dogs. Well just the one dog probably, she might let Lacy go.
16. Comedy, horror, or chick-flick? Comedy.
17. Blackberry or iPhone? iPhone.
18. Favorite movie? I don’t know we’re more of a TV watching group I think.
19. What is something weird that she eats? Her freaking rice cakes with some sort of spread on top.
20. Do you guys have anything matching? We have this “I heart British boys” tank that our friend Katie also has I believe.
21. What’s her favorite TV show? Parks and Rec, Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, and The Office, just to name a few.

Well I hope you guys check out her blog too, she’s funny and her blog is really positive (for the most part) and she’s awesome! Thanks for reading about my best friend.

XOXO

THERE IS A HARRY POTTER TAG!?!

So I am currently on Google Chat with my friend Lindsay (check out her blog http://musingsoflindsay.wordpress.com/) and we just found out about each others blogs that we have been keeping a secret for about a two months now, and she brought to me the most exciting news ever, THERE IS A HARRY POTTER TAG!  For those of you who don’t know- and I don’t know if I have put this out there before or not, but I am a huge Harry Potter fan, so when she told me this, I had to cancel my serious post to do this one. Like I am so freaking excited. So here it goes, and I hope you guys enjoy! THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

THE HARRY POTTER TAG

Favorite book ?

My favorite book is probably the sixth one, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, I think this is because it contained practically all of the rising action. So much happened in this book that lead up to the perfections of the seventh. It has so many plot twists and secrets reveled and GINNY AND HARRY I CAN’T they are my OTP.

Favorite movie?

My favorite movie is probably the seventh, part two, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, because it the absolute perfect ending. Like I’m pretty sure I cried the entire movie. This movie was put together perfectly, I mean they of course always miss things from the books but it was so good. They had scenes done perfectly with amazing special effects, definitely my favorite one.

Least favorite book?
My least favorite book is probably the fourth one, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, this is because the only important part about it is that Voldemort regained human form so yeah… Other than that it’s super lame and a Hufflepuff dies. There’s a synopsis of the fourth one and basically why I don’t like it. Plus I DON’T ship Hermione and Viktor- gross
Parts of the books/movies that made you cry ?
I’m just going to go book by book and movie by movie.
Harry Potter and the Sourcer’s/ Philosopher’s Stone: I believe that I had my period while reading this for the first time and I cried when Harry found out because he could finally be happy, so I was happy that he was happy.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secerts: I thought Ginny was going to die- even though I knew she lived I was still afraid she was going to die.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: I just cried because Harry had family to live with now and he could be happy, and when I though Buckbeat was going to die.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: I cried when Cedric died.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: I cried when Sirius Black died.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: I cried when Dumbledore died and when Harry and Ginny got together (tears of joy).
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: The whole thing. My face was not dry the entire movie.
If you could hook up with any HP character who would it be?
Harry Potter- the chosen one of course.
Favorite character ?
Hermione Granger. She is perfect.
What would your Patronus be?
Probably a sloth because I’m a slow little shit.
If you could have the Resurrection Stone, Invisibility Cloak or the Elder Wand which one would you choose?
Invisibility Cloak because I could be super sneaky.
What House would you be in?
I took the test and it said Ravenclaw. No complaints, I’m just glad it wasn’t Hufflepuff or Slytherin.
IF you could meet any member of the cast who would it be?
Emma Watson, she just seems super sweet.
Have you played any of the video games?
I beat Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 on the iPad and started 5-7.
IF you were on the Quiddich team which position would you play?
Probably a beater because they’re violent and the balls are big so I could actually see them.
Were you happy with the ending?
A simple yes should suffice.
How much does Harry Potter mean to you?
I don’t know how else to put it, but a lot.
So thanks for reading this super nerdy post guys, love you all!
XOXO
Mary
P.S.
Sorry about the awkward spacing I don’t know what happened!

50+ Facts About Me

So for those of you who don’t know (which I’m assuming is all of you) I would like to confess that I am YouTube obsessed and not only that but I owe a lot to these YouTubers. I don’t have a dramatic story like I was suicidal or depressed when I started watching these people who made me smile no matter how I was feeling, but I do have a lot of anxiety and they did always help ease that. Anyway I’ll give you some of my favorites at the end so you guys can look them up, but some of them do tags so their viewers can get to know them better so I thought I would do the same sort of thing just fifty some odd facts about myself so I hope you enjoy and laugh at my little quirks!

  1. I still sleep with my stuffed rabbit that has a rattle in it from when I was a baby. Its name is Chew Bunny because I used to suck on its ears when I was sad so it’s really mangy and gross. (If this post gets 5 likes I’ll post a picture in the comments!!)
  2. Junior and Senior year of high school I carried a briefcase instead of a backpack to class.
  3. When I was about 9 or 10 I fell of my scooter to save a frog and a chunk of my skin came out of my elbow so I have a scar because my mom didn’t know I needed stiches. There was too much blood to be able to tell.
  4. I love to crochet, but I have never actually made anything for myself.
  5. I met my best friends on a People to People trip, I haven’t even known them for two years but it feels like I’ve known them forever. We do absolutely everything together.
