Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 29

Once upon a time, I started this blog because I was going to college and I wanted to document the most mundane of adventures. Did I ever really do that? Not really. It has been three and a half years of rants, thought vomit, out of this world adventures, and sometimes just straight non-sense.

Yesterday, I hit 500 followers. I didn’t cry or shout like I thought I would (well I was at work) but I did get teary eyed. a little shaken and quite frankly a little overwhelmed. That’s a lot of people my friends.

Anyway, so thank you for that. It’s very moving.

Speaking of moving, I have been watching “Girl Boss” which is slightly inspiring. Like Sophia is a one-of-a-kind type of gal who doesn’t always do what’s best and not always what I would do. However, she is quite the go-getter, which is admirable. The show starts off with Sophia (the main character) going on about how being an adult sucks; which is a sentiment I am starting to sympathize with.

While applying for many, many jobs I have found it to be barely bearable. I’m honestly so over it. It’s so boring and excruciatingly painstaking. However, I shall press on and find a job that will do until I have a million children and can start up my mommy blog.

So here’s just a short little LNBM for now. Still working on the re-brand. I’d say by June it’ll be full swing.


The Mini-Mom

So a few days ago in my Blogger Failure post, which if I wasn’t convinced that I was one when I posted it, I am now after all of the lovely comments you beautiful people left me, I mentioned that I love mommy blogs because I’ve always like adults more than I like most people my own age. So I thought I would elaborate on this and why I think this is.

My mom had be when she was 24, nowadays, people don’t have kids that early, not that it’s that early at all. My parents had been married for nearly three years, they both had a stable job, it’s a logical time to decide to have kids. However, I guess none of their friends were really in this situation, really most of their friends started having kids about three years later, when my sister was born. Until I was 5 I lived in a neighborhood of kids my age, which was great. I would say until I was about ten I was fine playing with kids, but then at parties I would stay inside with the adults. I’m not sure why, I just felt more comfortable. I’m pretty sure my mom has even said that I’ve preferred adult company to than that of kids.

Even in high school I had a reputation of being a motherly figure. Okay, so ironing 12 people’s clothes on a field trip to Atlanta could maybe help this reputation a little bit. I sometimes still get referred to as Mama Mary or Mother Mary, I just take it as a compliments, even if it’s not quite meant to be. I think being the oldest of three, one of the oldest in a neighborhood with lots of kids, I have a nurturing side to me. I may come across as anything but, however, when it comes down to it if I care about you, I will care too much, probably to the point where I annoy you. I will tell you to drink enough water, I’ll make sure you eat enough, I’ll do your laundry if you ask, I will smother you. I think I through my love through actions, well I actually love to buy people stuff, so I also buy stuff for you too.

I’m also really nosey, like I love to feel like I’m in someone’s life, even if I’m not. Which is why I love reading mommy blogs, it’s not about makeup or fashion or crafts, it’s about their lives. They have such great stories of things their kids say, things they do as moms, just interesting lives. So yes, I’m 19 (I’m turning 20 soon and it’s freaking me out), and I read mommy blogs and love it.

What do you love that’s not expected?
