FeBLOGuary day 28: your hopes for your blog. 

All I hope for my blog is that I keep it up at least a little more than I have been. Also, Matt and I may be working on a little something ;) More on that later.

For now, my fingers are tired from all the typing. Happy March to us all :)

And in honor of just buying my Iggy Azalea tickets yesterday and since I started the challenge with an Iggy song, here's one more to end it.

Days are Gone

FeBLOGuary day 27: a confession.

My confession as we're approaching the end of this blog challenge is this:

I honestly did not think I could finish this blog challenge. When I was in my blog heavy days I was writing multiple times a day and following/commenting on blogs like crazy. But, alas I had so much more time than I do now. And I feel like although I now have so much more going on in my life I don't feel the need to share it as readily as I did before. I don't know. It's hard to explain.

BUT! I owe the completion of this challenge to not wanting to let down Mr. Okarmus didn't I list that as one of my flaws? Not being able to let people down... clearly writing about that didn't make it not so. 

I'm so happy I made it through the challenge though. And thank you, thank you, thank you, to those that read even one along the way. 

I can't believe these 28 days are gone

Where the Lines Overlap

FeBLOGuary Day 26: your favorite blogs

Well FOR STARTERS: Mr. Matthue Okarmus's blog, he kindly agreed to do this challenge with me because he is both a gentleman and a scholar. I met this fine fellow through blogging back in my blog-intensive days and now that I know him in real life he's even greater! This guy ya'll... this guy. 

Also from the good 'ol blogging days: Ms. Allison, she almost did this challenge with us, but decided against it, but she has been a loyal follower and she sends the funniest postcards, including my favorite one that just said Almost Canadian.

A newer follow for me but someone I've also met in real life: Mike, If you're into music check it out, or you know, if you're just into cool people. We got to hang out in San Francisco at a Tegan and Sara and fun! show, that was truly, fun. 

There are so many more, but I do love all of these beautiful human beings and therefore you should too. 

Today's song.

FeBLOGuary day 25: what would you do if you'd win the lottery.

I've always said that if I won the lottery I wouldn't change a ton, I mean yeah, I'd buy a house, and my mom a house and a better car. But outside of that I don't think I'd quit working. The last time I didn't have a job for an extended period I was bored out of my mind after like 3 weeks. I would probably take more vacations with friends and loved ones, but I'd still like to work. Maybe I'd write more? I'm not really sure, I've honestly never really even considered it a possibility so I just never really considered what I'd do. But this is pretty close I suppose. 

And in honor of the Miley Cyrus concert I attended on Saturday, here is my song of the day

Also, if you get the chance to see Miley in concert I highly recommend it. Damn that was an entertaining show, also GIRL CAN SING.

Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals

FeBLOGuary day 24: your favorite quote

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next... Delicious Ambiguity.” 

-Gilda Radnor

Besides the fact that Gilda is someone I look up to so, so much. The fact that this quote came about because of her diagnosis with cancer that would eventually take her like is even more awe inspiring. She was a beautiful, hilarious woman who helped pave the way for females in comedy. And clearly she had a great outlook on life. When I'm having a hard time I try to remember this quote and take everything with a grain of salt. 

Listening to her record also helps on those days.

Thank you for Being a Friend

FeBLOGuary day 23: talk about your siblings

By conventional standards, I don't have any siblings, but I definitely have a sister. I met Alison on the bus on the way home from the first day of kindergarten. I asked her name, she ignored me and played with her dinosaurs, I gave her my phone number, she ignored me and played with her dinosaurs, I said bye, she ignored me and played with her dinosaurs. 

But later she called me and my mom took me to her house to play. Her brother pushed us down the basement stairs in a little tyke car and she got out and hit him and they both got a time out. The rest is history. I saw almost everyday, she knows more about me than basically anyone. Even though we went to different colleges and I moved across the country, whenever we get back together is like no time has passed and we pick up like we just saw each other yesterday. 

She's the person I can call at anytime and vice versa. 

She is my person. The End.

My Hero

FeBLOGuary day 22: who's your hero

Easy. My mom. She did everything. She raised me, she took nothing for herself and gave me everything she could. I honestly don't know where I'd be if not for her, not where I am, that's for sure. 

I had a lot of terrible people in my life growing up, she was the one I could always count on. I don't even know if I could explain how much she means to me if I typed a 20 page essay. She's just the best, and one day I hope to repay her, though I don't think I ever could. She'll always be my hero. 

This song's for her, My Hero
