A Blogger's Christmas List

Hello All,

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is Thursday? Gah I'm so excited because well...

Anyways when Thanksgiving comes around we all think about two things I feel what we're grateful for (spoiler alert, tomorrow's post) and Christmas. I have have started coming up with ideas for other's gifts but I'm going to post my wishlist and try to keep it short. 

1. Tablet
I use my computer for EVERYTHING and I bring it almost EVERYWHERE. But it gets really heavy so I would want a Tablet that I could use away from home/dorm room.

2. Camera
I need a new camera that takes good pictures BUT also good video for blogging and vlogging.

3. An Anchor phone case
4. Teen Wolf season, The First Time and The Internship on DVD
Because they all feature my man Dylan <3

5. Cake Pop pans
6. Cake decorating lessons
7. Dylan O'Brien
Oh, sorry I forgot you can't ask for another human being for Christmas!

So, that's my Christmas list. And number 7 is about 50% a joke. What is a on your Christmas list? Let me know in the comments below.

The Perfect Man

Hello All,

You know those girls in chick flicks who have their "list" of qualities that they want their perfect man to have? And in the movie the man they normally end up falling for has none of the qualities because that would make for a extremely boring movie right? 

Today my friend, Lauren and I were talking about life and everything. The topic the of boys came up, are you surprised? You shouldn't be, girls like to talk about boys. LOL. Anyways that conversion got me thinking if I could find the perfect guy right now who would he be. 

It would be a guy who takes school seriously.
 Has a strong sense of family
He has to love dogs.
As much as I'm not a sports girl, I love guys who love sports.
He has to have some idea of where he wants to be in the future.
I want him to say sweet things to me, but only if he really means them.
I want hims to be funny (that is actually a 100% must, if he can't make me laugh, he's not worth it).
He has to be comfortable in his one skin.
A little bit of a smart ass too, I don't know why I think smart asses are funny.
I want him to want to be with me
But he needs to have good friends that he wants to be with his friends too.
Actually just screw the perfect guy and give me Dylan O'Brien! He can be my perfect man!
Happy Man Crush Monday! Featuring mine!
Who is your Man Crush Monday? Are you a total fan girl over him? Let me know in the comments below.

P.S.-If you don't know about Dylan O'Brien and Tyler Posey's bromance you have to check out this video because its the best bromance I've ever seen.

The Social Media High

Hello All,

Have I ever told you how much I love social media? Because I do. Although that shouldn't be too surprising because I feel like most bloggers love social media. 

I don't do drugs.
Yes, I know that is out of left field, but just stay with me okay? Anyways, I have never done drugs so I have no clue what its like to be high. But I feel like social media is an addiction that give off a "high". 

I get that feeling when a picture I put on instagram gets a lot of likes.

I get it when I get a new follower on instagram or twitter.

I get it especially when a blogger I love follows me on twitter.

Or when a blogger I love thinks I'm funny enough to favorite or retweet. 

I don't know why these things make me so happy but they are the reason I would never delete my social media. Do you feel that way about your social medias? Let me know int he comments below. 

And since this a post about social media, I'm going to shameless promote mine. Make sure you check out my twitterinstagram and blog facebook page.

Hello All,

You know that quote by Audrey Hepburn about all the things she believes in?

I believe singing when you drive is a stress reliever.

I believe in having full out monologues when your alone in the car because that's the second best place to make life's big decisions. 

I believe in letting the characters tell the stories when I write.

I believe that every one deserves love.
I believe that music is the biggest healer.
I believe that everyone has the ability to change someone else life.

I believe that if you're not happy your doing something wrong because there is always away to be a happy.
I believe in always having a plan but going with the flow whenever possible. 

I believe that having goals is important but when life puts you on a different path follow that because you were put on it for a reason. 

I believe that life only throws stuff at you that you are strong enough to handle. And that is always makes you stronger.
I believe hugs transfer positive energy from one person to another. 
I believe that true love comes when you aren't looking.
I believe that  everyone is strong but some have reasons to be stronger then others.
I believe in blogging, that sharing your story with the world may help someone somewhere and that blogger may never know. 
I believe that you need to remain positive because there is always someone who has a having a harder time then you.

I believe in Disney because its shows that you don't really have to grow up.
I believe that mom's are the best friend that someone could have.
Mama J and I at my high school graduation
I believe that shoes complete an outfit
I believe that TV can change someone's life because of the stories they share.
I believe that childhood friends are the best ones that you can have because they know your story from page one.
My first best friend except I'm only friends with one still :) (LtoR: Robbie (My first crush), me, Alicia and Amelia (best friend of almost 17 years))
I believe that dogs give the best hugs and their love is the best feeling ever.

I believe in dressing to impress, not for other but for yourself.

I believe that celebrity crushes are just as good as crushes you know in person.
I believe that fangirling is fun and but that you shouldn't be obnoxious
I believe that pictures on your wall keep you love one near even when they far away.

I believe that you can tell your true friends anything and that they will love you no matter.

I believe in friends are the best family.
I believe in keeping a journal so even when you're old and senile you can remember the good, the bad and the ugly.
I believe in cities because you never know who you'll meet that will change your whole world.

I believe in sleeping in because morning are for square.
I believe that everyone is beautiful and shouldn't let anyone tell them different.
I believe in Long Hair Don't Care.
I believe that merps are the best people in world.
