Just out of curiosity (I’ve noticed that quite a few of my conversations begin like this…) what is a “leaving dress” and where does one buy one? I mean, obviously it’s a dress, but why can’t one have leaving jeans? Or a leaving hat? Shoes?  Is there a specific reason or is it an abstract form of tradition founded in sexism? What color is a leaving dress? What length? Is there even an actual literal leaving dress or is it figuratively speaking? Music just ain’t what it used to be.

“Sir, you need to be less sexist in your choice of song lyrics and make less references to having sex with hot girls who don’t wear enough clothing.”

This is a picture of a confused dog to give you an idea of the expression I would probably receive should I repeat the previous quote to Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, or any of the other yayhoos that think they write good music. (Lookin at you, secular rappers whose names I doth not know.)

In retrospect (what a cool word…) that was probably the world’s longest caption. If it’s not, a sizable contribution to yours truly will likely soothe my injured feelings.

Moral of the story: Suddenly, POTATOES.

And also, don’t get a leaving dress.


There is so much awesomeness contained in this photo.


First off, for those of you in the path of Frankenstorm, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Please be smart and stay safe! ❤

And now to continue with my post…

I would like to thank my cousin-in-law Tony from http://www.tony-mackenzie.com/ for making me laugh. Out loud. (Really, I almost died.) Now allow me to explain a bit as to how he is my cousin-in-law. He is my cousin’s cousin. No blood relation. Ironically (not really, but it’s a cool word and instantly makes things a bit more dramatic) he is dating one of my closer friends. They are both very weird people and I’m sure they’ll get along fabulously. I’m kidding, they’re cool people. Anyhoo, if you’re depressed, or my blog is boring, or all of the above, go read his. He has a much more interesting life. And a job. (That really had no bearing whatsoever on the coolness factor of his blog but I listed it anyways.)

By the way…

Oh Joy.

Please excuse my mess, I seem to have misplaced my mind. My apologies for failing in my God-given duties to provide life hacks the past few Thursdays. It’s been crazy. One of my friends who is just the sweetest, most optimistic girl I’ve ever met, had a seizure at school this week. It’s also the end if the first quarter which means everything we’ve ever mentioned in class is dumped into a cauldron of progress book and blackboard and then boiled at a high temperature for an entire week, producing a grade which your parents will undoubtably tell you should be better. And also, on a completely unrelated note, typing on your laptop keyboard does not typically produce the desired results on your desktop computer. Attempting to use the mouse plugged into the desktop on your laptop does nog usually work either.

Country Girl - Fall/Autumn

Four AM Ramble

I was extremely tired yesterday (think: going back and forth between hyper and sleepy all day) so I decided to be responsible and go to bed early. Well that didn’t quite happen, but I fell asleep faster than the night before and every night this weekend. Anyways, it was a wonderful sleep. Until I woke up at frickin four in the morning. So after tossing and turning and mind-not-shutting-upping, I decided I might as well get my shower over with. So I took my shower, hoping it might settle my mind. Hahahaha… Riiiiiight. Anyways. Been having difficulties.. Uh.. tolerating my parents and siblings lately. It is not fun. I think I’m going crazy. The 17 year itch maybe? But I have a plan. Planning means you’re still sane right? Maybe? No. Well this plan will {hopefully} preserve whatever sanity I have left. I’m going to move to my grandpa’s house after the graduation festivities. Two and a half blessed hours away. There are more job opportunities over by his house, and the community college I have a scholarship for has several degrees that you can earn completely online. And did I mention I am getting a tattoo when I turn 18? Oh yes. I’m sure it won’t be as soon as I turn 18 as I’m going to do my research and save up some cash. But let me tell you, the design is simple and personal. It’ll be small and go just under my collar bone which will enable me to cover it up for work if needed. Alright. I’m done ranting. Hopefully I can get done more sleep before I have to wake up. And hopefully my hair dries quickly. Goodnight (morning?)!

Pintrest Pet Peeves

Okay. Here goes.

  • I’m annoyed with all the girls with allergies to clothing that get plastered all over Pintrest. And they’re in random categories so it’s not like I can just “unsubscribe” from that one board. Seriously. I could get in trouble if the wrong picture popped up at the wrong time at school. 
  • And then there are the highschool chicks that pretty much all they post is abs. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a guy having abs. But seriously. He’s like 30, famous, and married. Really? Yes he most likely agreed to having those pictures taken, but there are gazillions of them on pintrest. I don’t need to see your five or six repins with captions like “omgggggg! hes sooo hawt.” Which leads me to my next peeve…
  • Extra letters/text speak/misspelled words. It drives me bonkers. Seriously, you’re a Sophomore in high school. Shouldn’t you know the difference between “your” and “you’re?” Did you completely skip all of elementary school? I can totally understand slipping up on grammar once in a while, but EVERY. SINGLE. POST. It makes me want to quit the internet (well, not quite). I also dislike it when the entire post is in caps. 
  • People who post multiples of one item. I do this too sometimes, but only when it goes on more than one board. I don’t see the reason for posting duplicates in the same board.
  • Pintrest is so stinking addicting! I’m offline for two days and I feel like I was in a coma for six years. (Okay that one was more just the internet in general.)
  • And also, it makes me REALLY angry when people post tutorials and they don’t work. Drives me crazy. I should start a list of crappy tutorials that don’t work…
  • And did I mention it’s addicting?

What are your pet peeves, Pintrest or otherwise?




Stop and Think

So, my government teacher is really biased. Now this is not an exact quote, but its pretty darn close. “If you want everybody in America to be able to own an automatic rifle, vote republican. If you want government to do a better job of regulating guns, vote democrat.” That’s what he said! Biased much?!?
