12 Days of Christmas: Day 7- Dashing Through the Snow Book Tag

dashingthroughthesnow2

I was recently nominated by B from Getting Through Anxiety to do this tag and I thought it was perfect for my 12 days of Christmas!

Rules

Thank the curator (Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide To Novels). Thank you!

Tag five people to spread the Christmas joy

Have fun!

Questions

1. Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree.  Mindy Kaling’s Why Not Me– I read the first one last year and I really want to read her second one, she’s hilarious and inspirational in my opinion. 

2.) A book you’ll be reading over the Christmas season. I’m not sure, hopefully the one above, or maybe Grace’s Guide because I really need to learn how to be an adult. 

3.) Favorite Christmas movie. I’ll use this for promotion of my post earlier this week, but also I’ll answer it with probably The Polar Express. 

4.) Do you like snow?  No. I like when it looks pretty and I don’t have to go outside, however, there are very few times that I don’t have to go outside when it snows, therefore, I usually hate it. 

5.) Name a character you’d like to spend your Christmas day with. I think it would be fun to spend Christmas day with Harry and Ron when they stayed at Hogwarts, however, I would want to be the same age as them then, not the age I am now because that would be weird. 

6.) To give or receive. I love to give people Christmas presents, I think it’s because I like to shop. I also like to see the reactions when I get someone something they love. 

7.) What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at? I guess I already answered this but Hogwarts. 

8.) Fondest Christmas memory? I just love spending Christmas Eve and day with my family every year. 

9.) Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST in a row (pronouncing it correctly). Like B said I whispered it to myself and I could do it haha. 

I tag all of the Christmas lovers to do this post!

Average Adventure: 24 Hours in London, England

So before I went to London for my week off, I actually was there the weekend before, it was one of those weird planning things. I went with my friends from here, but I actually got separated because we were supposed to ride the bikes around to get around the city, but I got super anxious, like actually had a panic attack  anxious. The real blessing about the early panic attack was that the rest of day, I was under the impression that I had already hit the worst I could mentally hit so it didn’t matter how many times I got lost, I found a map and found my way. Gotta look on the bright side!

We were there for essentially 24 hours so we did as much as we could in that 24 hours. Then I got separated, and did as much as I could in 24 hours even though I was literally going back the next weekend.

P1100021

Tower Bridge is simply gorgeous. Well, there’s actually quite a bit of people on it and I’m terrified of bridges and we walked across it, which probably didn’t help then with the panic attack that was about to occur.

P1100037

Here’s Jenna on the bike, the last I would see of her for several hours. I did try to ride the bike, I was just really afraid of hitting a pedestrian or something along those lines.

So the first thing I did was go to see the Globe, but more so to me it’s the bridge that was destroyed by the Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I also liked the picture of the trees that was blurry so I decided to share it with you.

I then headed off to The Eye, which is owned by Coke apparently. I took a lot of pictures of it, but I did not go up it because it is expensive, the line is long, and I’ve already done it.

P1100071

This view of Big Ben though. This is just a nice picture that I took on my walk.

P1100074

I tried to take a selfie with Big Ben in the back, it did not go as planned. I couldn’t get everything in focus.

P1100079

Here is  view of The Eye from a distance, it’s a very interesting structure. If I think about it long enough it’s kind of a weird thing. What are your opinions on a huge ferris wheel that you pay a lot of money to get on?

P1100095

Just a classic telephone booth picture. I wanted to change it a little bit from the red. Well actually I tried to make just the telephone booth red, but I got too frustrated with the editing software I use so I gave up.

I spent a lot of time in what I thought was Hyde Park, but when I asked a lady in a cafe where the Peter Pan statue was (that’s where I was going to meet my friends) but she told me that I was in the wrong park. I still don’t understand. I think a lot of parks are just connected, so maybe these pictures are from Hyde Park, maybe not.

So yes, that was my 24 hours in London, and over the next few weeks there will be more from London, Brighton, Madrid, and Sevilla.

Which should I post first? Chronological or is there anything anyone wants to see first?

Average Adventure: Harry Potter World, Universal

So it’s been over a month since my family vacation now and I still haven’t finished my adventure posts. So far I did one on Animal Kingdom and the Lodge. I just haven’t had the motivation to edit my pictures. I really just need to sit down and do them all. I have however, finished a bunch of pictures from Harry Potter World, which was awesome.

P1080459

This is a really cool view (in my opinion) of Hogwarts Castle. It is among a bunch of other attractions but I like how it’s right and the middle and really stands out.

P1080457

This is the Knight Bus, and it was very realistic. However, it was a pain to get a picture of because there was an official line of people constantly waiting to get a picture with it instead of of it.

P1080408

This is really cool. This is 12 Grimmauld Place and every few minute Kreacher peaks out of the window which I find very in character and a great touch for the park.

P1080403

This is the side of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes building which I just thought was super cool and fitting. Everything was made with such details it was amazing.

P1080392This is the Gringotts Dragon that breathes fire. You can also see the Butterbeer store as well as the book store.

P1080361

Here’s a picture that focuses more on the signs rather than the dragon.

P1080355

Here is a better picture of the dragon, and Gringotts.

P1080381

Knockturn Alley. It’s air conditioned to feel cold like you would expect Knockturn Alley to feel like. It was creepy, there was Bellatrix Lestrange wanted posters that actually moved. It was so cool. The pictures were hard to get though because it was dark like it should be.

P1080360

This is the Leaky Cauldron, which we actually got to eat at and it was super cool. We had Wizard  sodas and some different foods.

P1080443

Platform 9¾. Super cool. Hogwarts Express goes between the two parks and ends in the two Harry Potter sections. The ride is complete with Wizard World scenic videos.

Harry Potter World is super cool. If you get the opportunity GO. It’s amazing.  I will be uploading more pictures of my Flickr once all of my vacation pictures are edited (hopefully within the next week or two).

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

So while I was gone Adi from The Happy Lifeaholic nominated me for an award! Which is far too kind of her. If you don’t know who she is, well you probably should. Go check out her blog. Thanks so much for nominating me!

sisterhood

Adi’s questions:

1. You have one paragraph to describe your feelings about coffee. Go!

If only a paragraph was enough! I love coffee, especially iced as of recently. I can’t say I drank a lot of hot coffee this past winter even. I understand why people don’t like it, but it really is amazing. It’s one of those things that you love or hate. 

2. Do you prefer using Macs or PCs? Why?

I have only ever really used PCs because my dad is very anti-Apple. However, my life would be easier when it comes to data sharing across my phone/iPad/laptop if I had a MacBook instead of my HP. However, I do really love my laptop. 

3. If you could cast yourself as the protagonist of a story/novel of your choice, who would the character be and what would the story be?

Definitely Hermione from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I just have this connection, and the same birthday as her, so why not?

4. If you could have one of these 3 superpowers, which would you pick, and why? i) Mind reading ii) Water bending/manipulation iii) The ability to become invisible

I would also go for mind reading, but only if I could turn it on and off. I think I would like to be able to teleport because I hate driving. Finally I think I would also want telekinesis so I would never have to get up. 

5. What, in your opinion, is the worst movie you’ve ever seen?

I have watched a lot of bad movies, however, I would definitely say the worst is “Waiting Forever”. I rented it from Redbox and it was the biggest waste of a dollar. It’s now on Netflix if you want to waste a few hours with it. 

6. What color would you absolutely refuse to paint the walls of your house?

I would never paint my walls orange. It’s too bright for me. I would do yellow for some reason, maybe because my comforter is yellow. 

7. What are 2 of your pet peeves?

I am one of those people who has a lot of pet peeves. My first one is probably people ignoring me in the middle of a conversation and the second is probably people who are just disrespectful or irresponsible just in general. 

8. If you could go back in time and change one thing from the past year, what would it be?

I would definitely change who I choose to spend my time with. I think that it is important to remember that there are some people who care about you and some who don’t, hang out with the people who do. 

9. Sadistic question time: If there’s a cat about to get run over to your left, and a dog about to get run over to your right, and you can only save one animal, which would you pick? [I know, I’ awful. Sorry!]

I would have to outweigh which one is older, if one is someone’s pet, things like that before I make a decision. Also I don’t do well under pressure with life or death situations so I feel like by the time I would decide it would be too late. 

10. Assuming you have a best/close friend, tell us how you met that person! :)

IMG_4516

Here’s a picture of us last weekend

Eric is my best friend we met in Molly’s room. There was a lot of people and it was very overwhelming so I don’t really remember it. We didn’t really start hanging out until the fall though, that was also one of those random things. 

Rules:

  • Thank your kind nominator
  • Proudly display the award image on you post and blog
  • Answer the 10 questions sent to you
  • Nominate 5 lovely blogs for the award and let them know by linking them to this post
  • Ask them 10 questions too!

Nominations:

In no particular order, I would like to  nominate the following five people:

The questions I would like them to answer are as follows:

  1. What is your first childhood memory?
  2. What is the one thing you really want to do before you die?
  3. If you could have a pocket sized pet, what animal would you choose? It could be any animal, just extremely small.
  4. What has been your biggest blogging setback?
  5. Is there a point in your life that you wish you could put on repeat?

Congrats on your nominations everyone! Thanks again for nominating me Adi!

Harry Potter is the Best

I got a little book shelf happy, not even sorry.
I got a little book shelf happy, not even sorry.

I’m too busy enjoying my evening to write a real post. So I thought I would just let you know that I love Harry Potter so I’m spending my evening watching Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I also went to IHOP with my friend Rosemary. Our names are so funny, I’m Mary Rose and she’s Rosemary!

Anyway, Ron is currently snogging the girl who’s name I won’t bother to learn and Hermione is crying and Harry is trying to make her feel better. I have the feels so I want to get back to my movie. This is obvious the best film and book of the series because everything ties together. How perfect. Anyway that’s all I have tonight, leave your favorite film (Harry Potter or other) so I can watch it this weekend!

Average Adventure: Visiting Alex

Yesterday I went to visit my friend Alex at her college for the night just to catch up and for a change of scenery. I had a delightful time and here are some pictures that I snapped of the beautiful town that her college is located by.

If you could go anywhere on the mid-Atlantic coast for the day where would you go? Let me know in the comments!

Things Only Readers Feel

So Thursdays are typically rant days, but today has actually been a pretty good day so I don’t want to rant and ruin my enlightened mood. Instead, I decided to share with you things that only readers feel.

However, before I begin that, I would just like to throw this blog post out there again, especially since I am in serious need of a partner, I really want to do this thing, but I can’t do it on my own. I think it’ll be a great opportunity, for anyone, however more so for college students who need resume boosters. So here is the link to the blog post  https://marysaverageadventures.wordpress.com/2014/02/25/im-so-excited-blogger-convention-idea-please-help-me/ and you can email me if you’re interested in helping or have any ideas. I also need a name so if anyone has any ideas they are more than welcome.

Okay so onto the good stuff. I’m assuming most of you reading this are probably avid readers, typically I am, however being at college with a million other things to do it gets hard to fit in time for fun readings. Hopefully this summer I’ll squeeze in enough to make up for it. Basically there are certain things that only readers feel, well at least in my opinion.

Example A: Most people don’t have the problem of falling in love with someone who isn’t real with only a vague idea of what they look like. I cannot express how many books I have read where I just want a character to be real so I can see them and be with them. As a reader, notably ones like myself who can literally feel like they are inside of the book, which leads me to my next point.

Example B: Readers are invested in every character, in both good and bad ways. This is a terrible emotion because you get invested in people who aren’t real.  It’s almost as if every action directly affect you even though it’s not even real. It’s truly awful.

Example C: Readers want to live and go places that aren’t even real. I am still distraught over the fact that I can never go to Hogwarts and fall in love with Teddy, how disappointing. I will never be able to visit Narnia or Genovia, and that’s sad. Readers have the opportunity to explore places through words, but a lot of the time we will never be able to physically see and explore.

Example D: The one good thing that readers get to experience that a lot of people don’t is a different sort of compassion. You feel bad for people who aren’t real, you cry for those who die, who you only know from words on a page. Reader absorb the feelings of every character and it’s a really interesting experience if you ask me.

Okay so that’s about all I have for today. Again if you wouldn’t mind sharing the link above, or giving your input on it, I would be so grateful. Thanks for reading!

XOXO,

Mary.

 

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. My sleep schedule has been way off, and I’m just tired of everything and everyone.

99 Questions That No One Asks (With a Q&A)

Questions asked by readers!

  1. Asked by Not Lindsay on yesterday’s blog. “What’s it like having such a cool friend such as Lindsay?” It’s a struggle to be so lame in comparison. 
  2. Asked by Alex on Twitter. “What is your schedule going to be when you get back to school?” Well I actually had to look this up and I guess I’ll just give you guys my class schedule and when I plan on studying and stuff… So Mondays start at 11:30 with Arabic until 12:45 and then I have 2:00 I have Model UN until 3:15, so I’ll probably just get lunch to go in between the two classes and this is the same for Wednesdays, which will probably make these my major study/work days because Tuesdays and Thursdays are extremely busy. They start at 8:30 with Biology of Food and Nutrition Lecture until 9:45, then Environmental Science from 11:30 to 12:35 and then I’ll probably get lunch to go because I have sociology from 2-3:15 and then I might want a nap because it’s just an all over the place kind of schedule. Finally on Fridays I have Arabic from 11:30 to 12:15 but then I have the lab portion of my bio class from 2 to 4:50 which is going to be awful! And somewhere between this madness I will find time to go home to work, do homework, study, and maybe socialize occasionally. 

Anyway here’s some facts about me because of Tag Tuesday and next week might be a tag, it might be a serious post, it might not be anything special at all. If you have any more questions for or about me comment on any post because I typically answer every comment so yeah. I set up a bloglovin profile yesterday so I believe you can follow me on there too now.

XOXO

Don’t forget to guess in the comments!

Almost Done.

I can’t believe that break is almost over and I didn’t even do half the things I wanted to do.  I didn’t have nearly as many sleepovers or good times with my friends, about halfway through break I realized that I wouldn’t be able to read all the Harry Potter book I had to settle with the last one, I didn’t crochet at all, and I didn’t film nearly as many videos as I wanted to. I thought maybe the anxiety attacks would stop, but they didn’t, so that’s another stress to go back to. I can honestly say I don’t want to go back to school. There are some benefits of returning, like no work, but I kind of want a job because the money would be nice. It’s also nice to be away from home, like the town. I feel like when I go back this time I’m going to be a lot more homesick just because I don’t want to be there. I feel like this semester is going to be super crazy and stressful with a full class load, along with a four day trip to NYC (hopefully) with MUN, a long weekend visit to Boston to see Lindsay and obviously several visits home for not just work but occasions like my sister’s birthday, a wiffle-ball tournament, Easter and spring break (is now an appropriate time to start the count down?) so hopefully all of these exciting things will help the semester will go quickly and May 9 will come quickly and I will be home for a good three, almost four months. So next will be here soon sadly and I hope I will have a post, but I will also be getting settled into my dorm once again so it might be a little bit harder to blog but then I will hopefully be able to make it up hopefully.

So a little idea I just thought up for tomorrow’s tag Tuesday, would anyone be up for a question and answer? If so ask any questions you may have for me in the comments and whether or not tomorrow is long enough to be a Q and A I’ll answer it!

XOXO

Mary
