Midweekly Update, Breaking the Rules

Okay I promised you guys and update midweek since I skipped Sunday. I BROKE THE RULES AND I DON’T FEEL BAD! I tried to film a little dance here to upload for you guys to show how carefree I was being but it didn’t work so you’re just going to have to imagine it.

Anywho this past week was spring break and it was fairly uneventful. I called off work Monday because I was not feeling well at all. I don’t remember what else I did then to be honest, maybe I saw my friends. I know I saw them frequently. I’m actually having a very hard time remembering what day I did things so I’m just going to give an overview of what I did. I made pancakes for my work/high school friends Alex and Margaret one day, which is always nice to catch up with them. My friend Meag from school came and stayed with us for a few days and we went to the mall so she could get a dress for the upcoming dance. We met my dad at a local ice cream parlor for lunch and I had delicious french toast. I also visited my mom one day for lunch, which  feel bad for her because she only has a half an hour, teachers have it rough. Caspar Lee favorited my tweet, yeah that happened.  I did some work, but that’s about it. I also got a flatish tire, confused about that.  Oh wait I applied for Amtrak’s residence trips so I’m waiting to hear about that, I’m not very confident in my application piece I selected so I’ll let you guys know if I hear anything.

So I’m actually going to update you guys on what has happened since returning to school because even though its only been like two and a half days a lot has happened.  I got back Sunday evening and worked on a paper until midnight. I got woken up to a call Monday with a snow day, will it ever stop? I don’t know, freezing rain and more snow tonight. *Rolls eyes* Anyway, so I entered a contest for shopjawbreaking.com yesterday and I found out today which is awesome (go ahead and check them out guys). So Ally if you ever see this, thank you so much! Thanks Jawbreaking, love your clothes!  I also found out that my voxbox should be coming soon, and I can’t wait! If you don’t know what that is it will all be here in a few weeks and I’m really excited about that. I also found a normal roommate for next year! So that’s really lucky too. What else? I’m not sure.  Oh! I started applying for nanny positions for over the summer on care.com, so you know if that works out maybe I’ll have some new aspects on life and that could even affect some writing. I hope if I get one I can do some cool DIY tutorials and maybe even day trip ideas.  So yeah, that’s it on so far this week, good week so far.

What else do I have going on this week? I have a dance Friday, and probably a movie night Saturday since I’m worried to drive my car far. I guess I should explain why I was going to drive far, I was going to go visit my friend Alex. I swear every time I’m supposed to go visit her something goes wrong so I can’t. Hopefully I can get down there sometime in April. That’s about it, maybe taking some pictures for an upcoming post but I’m not sure yet.

Well this it for today guys.

XOXO,

Mary.

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!
