Blessings on blessings on blessings

Please excuse the Big Sean and Drake song reference as my title, but that what is playing in the back ground right now.

It’s February 21, and its nice out in Michigan. Seriously, that big, yellow, thing in the sky that only comes out 5 times a year here is here today! It’s 45ºF and birds are chirping.

Its. So. Dang. Beautiful.

So I decided to do some spring cleaning. That rodent in the ground came out a few weeks ago and declared an early spring. Since I trust him about as equally as I trust any other weather man, I’ll just wait and see, but why not be hopeful in the mean time?970a58907ea83919681e379010f85b48.jpg

 

Before I get to the point of this blog I have a question for everyone who doesn’t live in Michigan. In Michigan we often get our pennies mixed up with Canadian coins, does that not happen to you guys? Does New Jersey, or Wisconsin or another state have this issue too? I didn’t think it was that odd until I saw all these “You know you’re from Michigan when…” memes.

I’m just curious.

Anyways I made a list of all the reasons why living alone when you’re a baby adult is the best. Here it is:

  1. You don’t have to worry about roommates bringing strange people home, and feeling uncomfortable
  2. If your apartment gets messy, that’s all on you, you can’t get mad at anyone else for it.
  3. Piggybacking off that, no one gets mad at you for when you haven’t cleaned in a while.
  4. Your nonexistent roommates don’t look at you like you’re a hermit when you stay in for the 15th weekend in a row…
  5. You learn a lot of DIY things for example; how to clean your stove top (did you know that thing raises up?), how to put those window insulators up, and how to remove a lot of things from the walls or carpet (i.e. cherry Dr. Pepper, or scratch marks) so your landlord never finds out.681d822e7565f362da9da7c03d4cc8fa.jpg
  6. You learn a lot about yourself when you live alone, for instance; I’m not the best cook.
  7. If you’re a vegetarian you don’t have to worry about your roommate buying hamburger meat and having it next to your strawberries. That just sounds so….ew.
  8. You buy a lot of your “first” things. For example; I bought my first vacuum this year (go me!), I also bought my very first set of dishes and pans, its kinda exciting.
  9. You don’t have to pretend to care about your roommates cat. Or watch it when she’s gone one weekend.
  10. Finally. You learn to appreciate the people you have in your life, but from a distance. I can appreciate you while you’re at your house, and I’m at my house.

I mainly made this list to feel better about myself because I was bored and didn’t want to clean anymore.

Love you!

Me.

I’m Still Here

Hi guys, I just wanted to come on here quickly and apologize for not blogging lately.

I’m just not in the mood these past few days I guess. I’m sorry.

I also have nothing to really chat about.

I’ll try again tomorrow.

I love you!

Love,

me

Thank You

Happy 1 year anniversary!

I know I just blogged but I just got the notification that I started this blog exactly a year ago.

As the photo says above, “A lot can happen in a year.”

So I’d like to thank you. Thanks for being there for me guys, whether you started last year on February 7, 2015 or you started today on February 7, 2016. Thanks for being part of my little family.

Last year involved a lot of changes in my life, and blogging helped me figure out how to deal with some of those changes.

Lets recap:

Last year at this time I…

Was living with my nana and grandpa.

Was working two different jobs.

Was figuring out how to deal with my depression.

Figuring out where I was going to live.

Was lonely.

Had no clue that my life would be like it is now.

*present day*

I am…

Loving school.

Having the best time ever with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.

Figuring out where I am going to live next.

Figuring out how to deal with my depression.

Not lonely.

Happy, and in complete and utter disbelief that my life is so different than it was exactly a  year a go.

Although there are still some things that I am trying to figure out, I am so thankful that I am not where I was last year.

It’s amazing how God will let you hit rock bottom, just so you can see that He is the rock at the bottom.

But once again, thank you. Thanks for being there for me, even if you didn’t know you were.

And a special thank you to my nana and grandpa, who are some of the most amazing people in the entire world. I’m sorry they couldn’t be your grandparents too, because they’re exceptional. Thanks for teaching me so much about loving, growing up, decision making, faith, and forgiveness. Thanks for letting me complain about my parents to you when I need to. Thank you for telling me when I’m wrong, and helping me figure out how to make it right. You guys are the best teachers I’ve ever had. Thanks for always being some of my biggest fans, and loving me every step of the way. I love you more.

Have a Happy Day

I am not the girl that cares about football.

However, I am also not the girl who plays dumb and says “go team” or “is this the sport with the big orange ball?!” just to look cute and dumb… because thats such an attractive quality to have, ladies.

You want to sit and watch a basketball game? Perfect, I’m your girl. But I couldn’t care less about any other sport.

To each their own. May the best team win today.

Panthers…Broncos… may the odds be ever in your favor.

I am going to watch the game today though, I think it is a fun game to watch every year, and hopefully the commercials are better than last year.

This wasn’t the point of the post today though.

But to be honest, I came on here with no idea what my point was going to be.

I think I was just bored, I wanted to do a puzzle, or read a book, but I have none of those.

Sundays are the best days to be bored. Time travels slower.

Okay, sorry for this randomness, I’m leaving you now, I just came to wish you a happy Sunday, and I hope whatever team you’re hoping for wins.

Here’s a little Michigan humor from all of us, to all of you:
