Positivity 2.0.

This semester has been lacking positivity from me, or at least in my opinion. I mean, as my nickname is Debbie Downer in more than one group of friends, I still want to maintain a positive energy about myself.

Recently, I’ve felt that my blog especially has not been very positive. It’s just a lot of me asking questions, not being sure, or even disappointed. I just feel like I can do better. So today, I’m here to spread positivity. I’ve been thinking of ways to do this, and I figured the best ways would be to make a list of the positive things in life and positive quotes, so I’m just going to do that.

  • It rained today and didn’t snow, which might mean that winter is almost over.
  • IHOP has the double dipped french toast back, this time with peanut butter *insert heart eye emoji here*
  • If you’re reading this you have access to internet which is pretty great
  • You’ve made it half way through the week!
  • People care about you
  • Chocolate is a thing and it’s amazing.
  • You can basically do whatever you want, sometimes the only thing stopping you is you. That’s a kind of a stupid idea because a lot of the time it isn’t true, but at the same time it’s kind of true. The world is kind of your oyster.
  • It’s almost mid way through the semester.

What are you going to do today to be positive? I hope everyone has a great day.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 5

blog challenge day 5

I don’t know that I’ve ever expressed this here but I am one of the pickiest eaters I know. There are few foods that I do like and I am currently not eating a lot of them because they are very unhealthy. I don’t know where this problem stems from because both of my parents will basically try anything but I won’t if it looks weird or smells gross. However, I do have some really good favorite foods.

I love french fries. Like I could live off of french fries and be content- fat, but content. They are without a doubt my favorite food. I love curly fries and shoestring but anything more than that is too potatoey and I can’t eat it. I don’t really like potatoes so it’s weird that that’s what my favorite food is made out of.

I also love chocolate which is basically what my diet consists of until I run out. I love any kind that doesn’t have fruit or jelly in it. I will eat it and eat it all. White chocolate is not real chocolate I dare you to argue with me about that. It does not provide any of the health benefits that regular chocolate does.

I really like pesto, basil, and mozzarella sandwiches. A normal person would call this a caprice but I hate tomatoes so therefore that’s not what it is when I eat it. However, cheese doesn’t always agree with me like other dairy products so I usually stay away from it but I still really like it.

I like chicken. This is so plain and bland but I could really eat chicken for every meal. I usually don’t care how it’s cooked, I prefer it grilled well fried but that’s really bad so for my mind I say grilled. I just love chicken. It’s the best meat to eat.

I love cheetos. Like the crunchy ones. They’re the best kind. If you put them in the microwave for five seconds they taste so much better too, I read that in a book and I tried it and it changed my life. They’re the best snack food. Also, the baked ones taste very similar to the regular ones so save half the fat and enjoy all the taste.

What’s your favorite food? I guess you can tell that I’m pretty unhealthy but that’s okay. I like terrible foods but I’m okay with that. I hate mashed potatoes- feel free to comment about that too.

Rolling on the Floor.

So yeah my schedule thing I made has not been working out lately, or my plan for that matter but that’s why I never committed to it 100% because I figured that might happen. Well anyway today/this week has just been one of those ones where all I want to do is roll around on the floor and whine because of life.

Seriously they all need to be answered, so do it please, please, please. Thanks!

Post-Valentine’s Day Haul!

Okay so I may have mentioned in yesterday’s post that I was going to do a chocolate haul today, and I think I really like that idea because I thought it was original, but I just googled it and it is not. Oh well. In total I only spent $16(ish, I’m not doing real math here people I’m a writer not a mathematician, I also bought a dust pan and I’m not counting that into my total.) on my chocolate and a movie, so without further ado, I give you my post-valentine’s day haul!

The first thing I picked up was this movie, Valentine's Day. I love it because it has oodles of my favorite people in it, however I cannot figure out how to get my computer to play it so that's a little disappointing to me.

The next thing I picked up was a bag of Dove dark, hazelnut chocolates and they are amazing! They are so creamy and delicious, and since they are Dove each wrapper has an inspiring message. I can say that I have been indulging in these way too much.

Ghiradelli, can you say yum? The one on the left is milk chocolate with white chocolate in the center, not my favorite but it's good still. On the right it is milk chocolate with a dark chocolate center which is so freaking fantastic I cant' handle it.

So it's not Valentine's without a heart-shaped box of chocolate. Now there were three pieces of fruit flavored chocolate which is a huge turn off to me, but the rest were fine, nothing special. This is more of an obligatory purchase than a delicious purchase if you ask me.

This was the most expensive, but best box of chocolate I picked. It looks like it has espresso bean in the top, but they aren't, it's just coffee flavored chocolate. I haven't tried the middle on because I'm not sure what it is, like if it's white chocolate or what. I think I might try that tomorrow.

Anywho here is my chocolate/ Valentine’s haul. This was amazing and sadly it is almost all gone. Man it’s only been three days, that’s bad. However, I’ve been having a rough couple of days and I have been sharing too. I DESERVE IT I MIGHT GET FAT BUT I’M OKAY WITH THAT RIGHT NOW. Sorry I got a little carried away right there. That’s it for now. I still have to finish a paper, someone help me.

XOXO

What’s happening, or going to happening!

This past week has been weird, can I even remember this week? Hardly. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday were the only days I had classes this week due to the snowstorm that has a billion different names now. Thursday was spent hanging out and sleeping over in Meag’s room with our friend Shay. Friday I tried to do homework and was unsuccessful.  My roommate moved her stuff out over the weekend so my room is rearranged, which Zoe helped me with and I am so grateful for that because there is no way I could’ve done it on my own. I know I’ve included this is various posts throughout the week but my computer has a virus and it’s driving me insane. I spent my Valentine’s Day with my friend Meag, we went and got Subway and saw Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It was way better than I expected it to be, especially since I didn’t like the books, and the first movie was just okay, but the movie was so good I basically spent the entire time sobbing over it. Saturday I obviously bought my discounted chocolate at Target, went to Dunkin with Meag and spent the day on homework and all of that boring stuff. As you guys may know, I was on the verge of a panic attack last night, which sadly happened and they’ve been happening on and off since 11:30 last night which has made for a very long day today. I’m afraid to leave my room for anything more than meals, so I didn’t go to church because I was afraid. So yeah I’ve been trying to do my homework all day but it’s still super stressed about the panic attacks and it just gets hard to do anything especially since I kept waking up throughout the night with them, I’m extremely exhausted. So yeah, negativity over for now.

Onto next week, what do I have going on? Well tomorrow I should have class but Tuesday and Wednesday are up in the air because it’s supposed to snow Tuesday and that will probably affect the horrible roads here at least one of the days.  Thursday I already have two classes canceled, so that means only one class at 11:30 for me and I can’t even complain a little bit about that. Unfortunately I have a SATURDAY seminar this weekend that is mandatory for my Environmental Problem classes which I don’t want to go to at all because it starts at 7:30 in the freaking morning. It’s also for a group project and I’m super worried that my group isn’t actually going to go. Sadly this weekend is going to be super boring I think. I have to go back to Target at some point which may result in some more chocolate since I have to make a return. I’m not complaining about this at all though, I love Target. So yeah that’s about it for this week. I hope something interesting happens and it gets better than today too because I’m not going to be able to handle this. Anywho, I hope you all have a wonderful week and I think I have some interesting things going on this week so that’s good too! Thanks to all of you for reading.

Alone on Valentines Day: The Perks

Okay so if you’re like me you may be alone on Valentine’s Day, and there is really nothing wrong with this at all. There are actually a lot of benefits to this to be honest. Like for instance, you don’t have to feel obligated to do anything. I’m pumped for rearranging my room and a girls night out with my friend Meag, and maybe Zoe. This is fun and all but really if I wanted to sit in my room and eat chocolate all day I could. To be honest if I even had a Valentine, I’m not sure I would want to do much of anything anyway, I’m not one for crowded restaurants, overpriced flowers, or even flowers in general for that matter, I’d rather stay in and watch a movie or do something else that doesn’t involve a lot of people so for me friends is the best way to spend my day. Or alone, that works too.

I should also mention that I may be a little bit obsessed with these cards. I've been saving them all and I pity a guy whoever ends up with me because he will literally receive them year round.

Now listen up everyone because here is the best freaking part about Valentine’s whether you are single, in a relationship, married, whatever, you have to go to Target tomorrow. All of the candy and anything Valentine themed is 50% off and it’s amazing. Buy yourself that oversized teddy bear, that huge box of chocolates, why? Because it’s half off and you deserve it. Tomorrow is probably the best day of the year, and you can bet your bottom dollar I will be at Target as soon as possible to get my 50% off chocolate. I deserve it too you know. So yeah there are several perks to being single or alone on Valentines day. Let me assure you that it isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be.  Indulge in chocolate, hang out with friends, or don’t get dressed. It’s really a day to love yourself and allow yourself to be happy no matter what because we all deserve it. Maybe I’ll do a chocolate hull tomorrow, that would be fun. We shall see. Happy Valentines Day to all of you my lovely readers, I love you all. We can be each other’s Valentines! Also I would just like to throw this out there, if you would like to email me any of these cards I would literally love you forever (marysaverageadventures@gmail.com). I hope you have a great day!

XOXO

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
