My Favorite – Day 6 of 365

Day Six – “What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favorite person? Tell us about it.”

Well my favorite person is my mom. The second would be Chantelle but I’ve never met her in person. The most I’ve ever spent away from my mom would be when I went to Girl Scout camp for two weeks. I remember I was miserable all the time (mostly because I was away from my mom). Pretty much any week you could choose from was a themed week. When I was going through the brochure that winter/spring I saw that for those two weeks in August was a Harry Potter theme. I had to go. I think I had gone twice to that camp that summer. Once in June for one week (I forget what theme that was) and once in August for two weeks. So that summer I was away from my mom in total three weeks. I’m still surprised that I had gone back to that camp seeing as how I had gone there for one week the summer prior. And I remember that was the one week in my life I was absolutely miserable for like two days and then found a best friend and we were miserable together for the rest. It’s strange to think about that best friend. I don’t even remember her name but I remember what she looks like and what town she had lived in at the time. I wish I had stayed in touch with all the girls I had gone to camp with those two summers. I wish I could be a counselor there but it closed down a few years ago because so many stopped going. That damn technology made every kid, preteen and teenager stay indoors. Granted I’m not an outdoorsy kind of girl but I did like that camp. I wish I had cherished it more.

I’ll never forget that camp. Especially those two weeks in August. We got sorted into houses and they put my into Hufflepuff. Which I hated because back then everyone wanted to be in Gryffindor and it wasn’t cool to be put into Hufflepuff. But little did those counselors know, they had some serious power. Because I am a Hufflepuff. I don’t think they knew anything about me (they sorted us on the first night there) but somehow they knew I was born a Hufflepuff. Sorry not sorry for nerding out there. The other thing I’ll never forget that happened while I was away at camp…my mom split her head open by somehow tripping and hitting her head on I think my dad’s nightstand. Which I still don’t know how she accomplished that. I remember when she told me what happened, my response was “I just cannot leave the house for two weeks without you hurting yourself!”

Can I just go back in time and go back to that camp? And go back with the knowledge that I’ll be okay being away from my mom and to just have fun.


Okay so I just realized that when I went to college was the longest time I’ve been away from my mom but talking about sleep away camp was more fun to talk about. College is a longer discussion for a later time. And I went home like every two weeks so it’s the same time I was away from my mom as sleep away camp was. And I could talk to my mom while I was at college. All I could do is write my mom letters while I was at camp.

Call Me Ishmael – Day 5 of 365

Day Five Take the first sentence from your favorite book and make it the first sentence of your post.

(I can’t find my copy of Anne Frank and Me at the moment so I’ll go with the first line from the book I’m currently reading)

“Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood.”

Even though I haven’t finished reading this book so my opinion may change later on. But I think it would be cool to be a half-blood. To be a child of a human and a god. I don’t know which god I would want to be the child of. Mainly because like I said, haven’t finished the book and I don’t know everything about the gods. But as of right now, I’d like to be the daughter of Aphrodite the Goddess of Love. I’m a little romantic. Hopefully I’ll finish the book soon and can tell you definitely. You all who know about the gods are probably laughing at me right now but she’s who I’d pick as of right now. I’ll update you all later.

Even though Percy has to face monsters and possibly the God of the Underworld himself, I still think it would be really cool to be a demigod. I mean, yeah I could die but I don’t know, I’ve always been into the fantasy worlds. And I’ve always been interested in the Greek Gods & Goddesses. I need to read up on them more.

Quote Me – Day 4 of 365

Day Four: Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

No I unfortunately I cannot remember all of my favorite quotes, so I cannot return to them. I should start a book of my favorite quotes though. Because a lot of them are so fantastic. Marilyn Monroe and Ginger Rogers had a lot of great ones. Of course there are the people who have been bringing up the “did Marilyn really say that or did someone just write that for tumblr?” Because many I see on tumblr and fall in love with those quotes. But I think Marilyn would like that we appreciate the quote even if she didn’t actually say it. If I had to choose one to share with all you lovely folks it would be from Andrew McMahon…

Also this one needs to be seen also..

These quotes don’t need any explanation. Nope they don’t.

Kick It…Day 3 of 365

Day Three: What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?

I don’t per say have a “list” made out for a bucket list but I’ll look at my bucket list board on Pinterest and see what’s #11 from the bottom up.

“Witness a Wedding Proposal.”

Already happened. A few times. And I don’t mean the ones you see on tv (like Dick Clark’s New Year’s Eve Celebration with Ryan Seacrest) like the other night. I’ve seen at least three I think at Manchester Monarchs games. Oh, I saw (well kinda not a good view) saw two lesbians get engaged last year during the Pride Parade in Boston! I can’t think of if I’ve seen more or not. But I’ve never seen one up close than wasn’t so public.

I don’t know why I have this in my bucket list board on Pinterest if I’ve already checked this off years ago. Oh well.

January 2….Resolved

Day Two: Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?

Nope. I don’t usually make resolutions because I can never keep them. Except this year I made a few. See my post here. In the past the only thing I could think of for a resolution is to lose weight. And I would try to eat healthier at the beginning of the year but it’s always a struggle. Mainly because nobody else would join me to eat healthier and I would end up caving because there would be so much bad food around me. I can’t blame my family, it’s my fault that I always cave. But I wish we could start eating better. Losing weight is on my resolutions this year. Because I really do need to lose weight. I wanted to start is yesterday but seeing as how we were at the hotel, I didn’t have many options for breakfast. Actually my mom picked me up breakfast downstairs so I could try to get more sleep.

Hopefully this year I can keep a few of my resolutions. I hope to at least keep #1 & #2 this year. I’ll try to keep you guys posted about my resolutions as the year progresses.

365 Days of Writing Prompt…Day One

When I first started this blog, I was trying to find ways to post constantly, if not daily. I came across the 365 Writing Prompt Challenge from The Daily Post. Unfortunately when I started this blog, it was June. I didn’t want to jump in the middle of the ebook, so I decided to wait until the new year. I hope I can stick with it for the entire year!

Day One: Where were you last night when 2014 turned into 2015? Is that where you’d wanted to be?
