Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 26

late night blogging with mary

I’m back at school and trying to get back to blogging. I’ve just had the year of bloggers block which I think might lead to a year of daily blogging but we’ll see. However, right now I’ve just been in my head.

I don’t know if it’s my anxiety, fear of the future, or just simply how my brain works sometimes but I’m just stuck some days. Like here is the thing, I’m a senior in college now and nine out of ten days I just don’t feel prepared I suppose. Like I will be done my major in the fall, and then I have to decide whether or not I want to do the concentration (one more class). That’s it. 29 credits stand between me and the diploma I’ve been craving for the past eight years. Yet, that’s it. Like it was all this build up and anticipation to this year and I’m just very underwhelmed.

Another thing, I’m like super back into like videos. I go through phases with this stuff. Like right now I definitely want to get into artsy vlogs. Like I don’t really want to do those follow me around types, but more of a from my eye point of view type of things. I really just like editing and how you can put together this vision that you have in your head and I want to do more of that and I would like to consider that an option for my future, however, that would be very, very hard.

I’m also going to go through a major rebrand this summer. Or so I say. My whole life my internet presence since the fifth grade from Neopets to email, I’ve been mrmilligan13. However, that does make me look like Mr. Milligan. I will be running a twitter pole within the next couple of weeks, so make sure you’re following me for updates and if you would like to vote in what my rebrand should be. Also let me know if you have any ideas because I have zero. The only reason that I think I might want to keep it is because men are statistically more successful than women, do I join the bad side? No. Because women should be equal and I shouldn’t have to hide behind a “mr” in all of my usernames to be successful. So I’m rebranding.

Finally, I just think everyone should know that I watched Girl Meets World from 2-3 am before bed last(?) night (morning?) and sobbed hysterically because I have missed my opportunity for a Corey Matthews. Then for this season they recreated one of the sequences from the theme song of Boy Meets World and I just cried. I’m emotional.

Happy LNBM, I’ll  be around more hopefully!


How to Survive High School: Senior Year

Okay so today is special for two reasons: reason number one IT IS MY 100TH BLOG POST!!! This is actually super exciting for me and this is probably the longest I’ve ever stuck with something so thanks for sticking through it with me. Also reason number two that this is special today is the last day of the how to survive high school series, yay! I also have something planned already for next week so I can’t wait. So here’s to the future! Thanks for being there for me if you were there since post one or post 100, each one of you are important to me. So yeah let’s start on senior year!

Senior year for me actually really sucked, well at the least the school aspect it did. So here is some of my advice to survive the last year of your high school career.

College applications, now I only applied to places, however there were not many places I even liked let alone wanted to go to. To be honest though I don’t think I would want to apply to a bunch of places because choices stress me out. What it really comes down to though is  if you want to have a lot of choices, if you think you’re going to get in to all of your choices and so on and so forth.

Essentially this is how you will feel about most people in high school.

Senior year is all about hating every single person you encounter. Okay just kidding but if you’re anything like me you will. By this point in time I was so done with everything and everyone and I just wanted to be done. I feel bad for you if you met me senior year because I probably didn’t even give you the time of day because I was so done. I hope you don’t feel this way because I wish I could have had awesome memories and spent more time with people but that’s life and it comes with regrets.

Embrace you inner weirdness because it is your last year and when it's over you're never going to see anyone again.

Seriously if you are going to be weird do it now, because you aren’t going to see the people who will make fun of you ever again, plus if you go to college you are probably going to want to make a good impression so you can’t really do it there. So yeah, senior year, go be weird and confident. Be yourself!

You are going to find out who your real friends are.

When it comes down to it you aren’t going to have the energy to force friendships anymore. You will lose friends senior year and it’s basically a fact of life. It sucks, I know, but it happens and it’s for the better, I promise.

Well that’s it my advice for senior year. If you guys have any questions about high school at all feel free to comment or email me, I literally have no life and answer every single one!
