Sweater Weather?

I’ve spent my evening doing nothing since I have on class tomorrow since two got canceled and I have a splitting headache. I fell into the pit of YouTube watching hours of BuzzFeed videos where I unfortunately learned that they used the term “quarter life crisis” about a year earlier which I thought I invented so that’s upsetting.

Do you know what else is bothering me? The lack of fall weather. It’s been too hot for me to wear just a sweatshirt or sweater. In the morning it’s nice and cool and by the afternoon it’s in the upper 70s and I’m sweating. I keep hearing about how this winter is supposed to be really bad but it’s not even cold yet. How is the winter going to be terrible if it hasn’t even been in the 40s yet. I don’t understand. I’m not asking for cold weather, I’m just asking for cooler weather. I’m tired of the heat and grossness of the air, it’s still super humid. That is not helping my hair situation. Also today was essentially a monsoon. My campus seriously needs to fix their sidewalks because they are so uneven and collect so much water it’s ridiculous. I actually ended up ordering rain boots in my first class because I was so fed up.

Okay I’m going to bed because I didn’t feel well last night so I was up a lot. I need to stop eating crappy food late at night it makes me feel really gross. Here’s to a good tomorrow. Hope you guys are having a good week!

Hello Fall.

I’ve always really liked the smell of fall. I also really like to wear oversized sweatshirts with leggings. Go ahead and make fun of my white girl tendencies. I’m just happy that fall is here. Fall is bringing with it stress but that’s okay hopefully it will get better. I haven’t really thought much about the seasons until it’s been forty degrees in the mornings and the leaves are super crunchy.  My favorite part of fall is the smell and the crunchy leaves. It’s not a good walk unless you’re crunching some leaves. I’m glad for the crisp mornings but fall will bring winter and this winter is supposed to be bad.

Last year winter was so bad that I lost track of how many snow days we had. While they were fun, it was a waste of my time at school. I think three is probably a good number, not days on days on day like we had last year. However, this winter is supposed to be worse. Rumor has it the region in which I’m in is going to get hit hard. The Farmer’s Almanac says so, I don’t know if I believe all of that but there seems to be some proof with that.  Snow is icky and it makes me not want to leave my room, let’s see how far we can go without a snow day, next semester?

Short post because it’s late. Hopefully better content is to come, but the writer’s block is real my friends.

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

Pretty Places: My Hometown

Pretty Places: My Hometown

I don’t know if I have ever put it out there but I am not exactly a fan of where I’m from. I was born and raised in Lancaster County. This past weekend I took a visit home with one of my friends. She is from Maryland so I decided to show her around the touristy town of Intercourse. Yes, that is a town name and it is where a lot of the Amish live. To be honest I have no idea why on earth anyone would want to name a town Intercourse but that’s Pennsylvania for you.
Even though I don’t like it where I live, I have to admit is a very beautiful place. The farm land, hills, changing colors in the trees, and sheer beauty of the land itself is actually amazing. Sometimes I lose myself in the beauty. I don’t really know what else to say, but if you guys have any questions on the Amish or Mennonites that occupy my area I will try my best to answer them. Thanks for reading and I hope you guys are doing well! Feel free to follow me on twitter and instagram @mrmilligan13
