Excuses Excuses

Dear excuse makers,

This one's for you.
Did you know that excuses don't fix anything? If not then this blog may be an eye opeaner. People that continuously make excuses for every little thing are just annoying! And it isn't just parents and teachers that it bothers (although they are the ones that gennerally get onto you for making excuses) but as a friend I can't stand to hear lousy reason after lousy reason. If you are twenty minutes late meeting me, instead of saying, "Oh my goodness I had homework and I forgot, the traffic was terrible, and my mom kept getting onto me for every little thing" All I want to do is tell you to shut up and apologize. I think that is the worst part, when somebody makes all these excuses and dosn't apologize! It drives me absoulutly nuts. I just want to hit them with a sledge hammer!

All excuses do is make you look immature, pathetic, and irresponsible. Sometimes people mess up, it is just part of life but not having the nerve to get over yourself and fess up. I mean come on.

Well I hope this blog changes your look on life and everything else you ever thought you knew. Glad I could help!
Look at this new cute face ---> !.! it's like a little robot face! Thanks for reading leave me a comment would ya?

Bad luck

Guest written by our friend Mason Abbott

I am probably the unluckiest person alive. I do not know why I am so unlucky. I try not to dwell on it, but sometimes it starts to bother me. For example, last week I was enjoying reading a book on a pleasant, rainy day. The storm was very relaxing and I was enjoying my book. Then, all of the sudden lightning strikes a tree outside and it bursts into flames. I guess the electric current traveled through the ground and into the house because the next thing I know the alarm is going off. I have read all the alarm system saftey guides and I know electricity is dangerous. But I needed to turn off the alarm, I hit the correct buttons, but the current shocked my fingers so bad I was thrown to the ground. How does this happen? Why did a relaxing day turn into a nightmare? The only explanation is that I am unlucky. I honestly cannot think of another excuse. Perhaps I should go get a horseshoe or a lucky penny. Something needs to change because I am not sure how much longer I can take bad luck.

Hey you guys I'm sorry it has been a while since I have posted. I have had a crazy busy schedule lately!

But today I want to talk to you about something REALLY important!
ADVENTURE TIME! Yea, I said it. Adventure Time, the best cartoon out there! The subject came to me when Ethan (my incredible boyfriend) bought me the Jake the Dog hat at Spencer's yesterday. The reactions I got on it were insanely diverse.
From the adults I got "Why do you have a dog on your head?", "What's up with it's eyes?", and a whole bunch of awkward chuckles. Parents didn't seem to be too fond of my incredible hat!

But anybody that was under the age of 30 thought it was the coolest thing! They asked me where I got it, told me Ethan is the most amazing boyfriend on the planet, and told me they were planning on stealing it. Now, I know that a lot of those kids were Adventure Time "posers" meaning they don't really keep up with the show they just think the characters are cute and the sayings they read on the shirts are funny; like "Shmowzow", "Algebraic", "Flip what the zip", and "Slam a cow". But ,that is OK with me.

Ethan brought me home last night and my mom just flat out couldn't take me seriously with it on and it was even worse seeing Ethan wearing it and imagining he got nine tackles the night before. It got me thinking what is it that ages 7-28 love the show but any "real" adults just don't get it. It doesn't bother them like screaming Sponge bob, they just don't see why we all love it.

The reason I love it is because it is so bizarre, it has an insanely simple theme song consisting of a ukulele and vocals but then the show is just out of the blue. One of my friends tried to describe it as going on an acid trip without having to. Between the unicorn made up of a rainbow, little candy people who live in a candy city that giant women try to eat, and bad guys that will turn poor people into a foot just to prove to them that he is a good for nothing jerk, and how delicious tofu human is I guess the reason we like it is because it is like the story books our parents used to tell us, just to more of an extreme.

Well comment your opinions! I'm curious to hear what you guys have to say about it!
Go be wonderful and amazing like Ethan, then kick a cardboard piano out of jealousy.

Why do people like me???

I have so many friends. I have the most amazing and incredible friends! They are fun, and kind, and more then I could ask for! My biggest question is why do they love me? I don't understand it.

I mean, I am narcissistic and pretty sure I am the best thing on this planet. I am crazy bossy, so much my friends call me Rachel after the motherly like figure on FRIENDS. I am notorious for being anti-romance. I have the hardest time sitting through any Nicholas Sparks book/movie.And the list just goes on and on. I guess my friends are crazy. O and I also have this problem where I don't understand something I tend to blame everybody else.

My boyfriend loves me. Lucky me! He loves me just as much as my friends do. That weirdo! He puts up with me even though I am more violent then a teenage boy. But Ethan puts an end to that quickly because anytime I try to beat him up he just throws me over his shoulder. He deals with my insane competitiveness, I am probably worse then the average NFL coach. And he somehow listens to each and every word I say to him. Or at least pretends to listen. And man do I talk a lot (hence me beginning a blog).

I got this trait from my mom where we just want to fix everything. Whether it is our problem or not. Like if I am at the movie theater and the movie is too loud or too quite, I am the one that goes up to the people behind the counter selling the popcorn and lets them know. I guess that can come in handy eventually in life.

So to all the people that know and love me, please don't stop loving me because I would be no where without you guys.

Why We Love Homecoming

I am so PUMPED! Homecoming at my high school is tomorrow night! I got a real pretty dress, a shiny pair of shoes, and a whole bunch of dangle jewelry. I didn't have to go out and buy new clothes, I just wanted to. Most of my friends are actually going in jeans and t-shirts. There will be a whole bunch of muddy boots on the dance floor and that is perfectly OK at my little Arkansas school. The dance won't be big and formal, it is just for fun! We will all have a great time at the football game before the dance. The homecoming maids will be all dressed up in the middle of the turf before the game,looking gorgeous. Everybody will laugh and cheer on their Cobras. The entire event will bring the students closer to one another, we will all get to dance and hang out together til midnight and it will be wonderful!

My boyfriend texted me and was so excited because he cleaned out his truck for me. It is a little thing but it just put the biggest smile on my face. So if little schools like Fountain Lake have taught me it's just to enjoy the little things. Not everything has to be a big blow out party where everybody is dressed up and everything runs smoothly. Enjoy the "Walmart Moments" because life is full of them!

Thanks for reading! Leaving me a comment telling me how beautiful and brilliant I am!

It Makes Me Feel Pretty!

I want to start by clearing something up for all of my readers.
Make-up is (or should be) used to enhance your appearance, not cover it up.
If you interview a group of guys no matter what age or personal background, I promise you, over half of them will say they like little to no make-up, over the "raccoon" look. Who wants those teenage girls roaming the mall who have black eye liner down to their nose, layers of foundation that makes them 3 shades darker, and eye shadow the color of the sky up to their eyebrows.

Cosmetics are great, I love them they make me feel prettier and I can use it to cover-up my flaws or to bring out my good features.

If you have blue eyes why would you spend hours applying tons of dark colors all around your eyes? That hides your natural beauty. If you have naturally thin long eyelashes, don't put a lot of mascara on. I mean why use bat poop when you already have the lashes?

Most make-up is meant to be put on in little proportions and in the correct manner to make you look better. There are a lot of woman out there that are anti-make up. I get where they are coming. I get that that is "who you are" and you shouldn't have to change, but I don't see what is wrong with enhancing looks. It is just like wearing flattering clothes. They don't change your body any more then sweats do, they just bring out your natural beauty. Hey, I look better in jeans and a cute take top than I do in overalls. That doesn't make me a sell out.

So thank you for reading! And keep reading, I like the attention.
Now go and read a neon sign, o and check out this website :)

Can't Sing But I Can Wiggle

For a while I have had a saying that I use probably about once a week.
"Life would be a lot easier if I could sing." And it is true! So many things would just come easier and be really nice if only I even had a moderately pleasant voice. But no, I got my voice from my mom and it is no good. Just today I experienced 4situations where I thought, Man I wish I could sing!

This morning when I was in church I was standing in the pews and began singing the hymn along with the rest of the church and my mom just started laughing at my voice. It was depressing! And back behind me I have this mother daughter duo with matched voices that were right on key. And here me and mom are, tone death losers.

This afternoon I was in the car with mom, my younger brother, and Sandor's friends brother (one of my good friends) who just has a wonderful voice and Adele's newest song came on. I love this song and know every word to it but can I hit those notes? Of course not!

And tonight I had youth group and I was trying to teach some members in my church the beginning verses to the song Hallelujah and it was so embarrassing. My voice sounded terrible. Life would be easier if I could sing.

Last I tried to sing happy birthday to my mom today. That didn't go too well, but luckily I was surrounded by a bunch of loud, off key, vocalists.

So to all of those cool cats with the killer voices. Shut up JERK!
And to all those out there like me. Keep with the band!
Now my fellow shoe wearers, go drink some coffee, put on some booty shorts and dance like you can't sing! :)
