Things that Confuse Me: Part 2

There are a lot of things in life I don’t quite understand. So here’s an extension of Things that Confuse Me with added things and advice from my friends here in Dublin (well Galway for the night).

  1. Jenna says fridges, but I think it’s cold water and fans, so Jenna just needs to understand.
  2. Why are flowers romantic? They die.
  3. Rain taxes. It’s natural and you can’t help it.
  4. Why people in Maryland are so obsessed with Maryland. They love the state so much, yes it’s cool, but the flag is everywhere. I just don’t understand.
  5. Jayden, the Californian, why people feel comfortable shortening the name to Cali as if they’re close to the state, like they’re friends?
  6. Jenna says, why people think that everyone in Texas owns a horse, but are surprised when they find out she was in FFA?
  7. Jayden says how can silk be a nasty spider web and a nice shirt?
  8. Why leg hair grows the opposite way on the back of your legs
  9. Reality tv, how is it so good? It’s people leaving over dramatic lives.
  10. Why do walls sweat? Like condensate when it gets hot. (Jayden)
  11. How does a 100 degree bath burn you, but your body is already nearly 100 degrees?
  12. Scabs. Your body just stops the bleeding.

What confuses you? These are just a few of many.

Travel Bucket List Part Two.

First and foremost I would like to apologize for the fact that there was no post last night, I volunteered to work until 3 am so I got home and basically passed out. So to make up for it, instead of writing two posts that are missing quality, I’m just going to do a second post here.

Secondly, I would like to announce the winner of my hundred followers giveaway, congrats to Jona and thank you for following! There were only two entries, so I’m going to wait for a few more hundred to do another. My apologies to One Curvy blogger, hopefully next time! I used a random number generator to pick the winner so it was unbiased and such.

So now onto the actual post…

As some of you may know a few weeks back I did a travel bucket list, filled with places within the US and overseas, I decided that for my longer post today would be filled with more of those places since it takes a good amount of time as well. So without further ado here it goes…

Sydney, Australia just looks amazing. I know a lot of people started their yearning for Sydney adventure after “Finding Nemo” however, I don’t know when mine started. Certainly not after that since I’m not a fan of that movie, nor any that have talking animals. I still really want to go because it just seems beautiful and it would be a cool place to go on an Australian/ New Zealand  adventure. (http://gomanana.info/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/sydney-australia.jpg)

So that leads me into my next place, New Zealand. I just want to a general adventure out that way. However, I am extremely nervous about a plane ride that far, but I’m sure I will accomplish it someday. (http://www.accommodationinnewzealand.co.nz/images/nz07.jpg)

Hint, hint mom and dad I want to go back. Bar Harbor, Maine everyone. It’s so pretty and quaint, it’s one of those places where you just feel comfortable automatically.

India, once I know how to better manage my anxiety I’m going to hopefully go to do some volunteer work.  I would really like to work in an orphanage and maybe adopt baby from there, but I don’t know what I’m doing with my life today let alone ten years, maybe I won’t want kids! I don’t know! (http://deladream.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Population-Seven-Billion-picture-India-Crowded-Streets.jpg)

Adding to London from Part One I would also like to got to Brighton, England. Whenever I see pictures or hear/read about people who live there or who have visited I just think about how amazing it sounds. (http://www.tripextras.com/files/Brighton.jpg)

San Diego, California. I’ve been here before but if I’m not mistaken I think we only went to an old town that was really cool, Sea World (which after watching Blackfish, can’t say I would go again), and maybe the zoo, but I’m not sure. Anyway, I would really like to go back and explore the city. (http://www.plazaresearch.com/wp-content/gallery/other/sandiegoskyline_gde.jpg)

Chicago, Illinois is another city I want to go to. I don’t know why to be honest, I think I just have a love for all cities and I just want to experience them all. I remember my mom talked about going once, but I told her about how I read that it was the sex trafficking capital of the country, and I think that changed her mind. Maybe not, maybe we’ll go sometime, who knows. (http://images.nationalgeographic.com/wpf/media-live/photos/000/068/overrides/millenium-park-chicago_6882_600x450.jpg)

Okay so that’s it for this Travel Bucket List, to be honest there will probably be another one eventually. I can’t wait until the day where I can start sharing my own pictures and experiences of these places with you guys. It will happen one day, I’m not going to give up on this dream. Thanks for reading!

XOXO,

Mary.

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

Mary
