• Young, Wild & Free

    As I get older, I sometimes get the feeling that I need to stop doing things I did when I was younger. Thinking about this reminds me of all of the posts I see referring to telling your younger self what not to do as you grew up. Like every one else, I made plenty of mistakes, and I still make them to this day, but I wouldn’t necessarily change all that much. Becoming who you are, and finding out about yourself is a part of the process, but so is holding onto those memories and making new ones. For starters, when I turned 21 I was going out a…

  • What The Heck Starts With “X”?

    For the letter “X” I couldn’t think of anything that made me happy beginning with that letter. Instead of posting about something that begins with “X” I am posting about ex’s, not just ex-boyfriends, but ex-jobs, ex-anything. There is a positive reason for everything being a part of your past and not your future, and I want to get into some of those things. Lets start with the obvious, Ex-Boyfriend(s). This is the most clear to me, they are ex’s (is it exes or ex’s?…oh well, sorry grammatically awesome peeps) for a reason. I now have the most amazing boyfriend, and never would have gave him a second glance if…

  • Very Special

    There are a few moments in my life that are very special to me, but one of them sticks out above the rest. When I was younger, my parents were separated, my mom and dad both worked full time, and I lived with my grandparents. Living with them was great, I have so many memories from growing up with them and they all mean so much to me. But the one that I think of the most often is when they made me skip school. I lived with them while I was in Pre-K and Kindergarden, I don’t remember which I was in when they told me I wasn’t going…

  • Water Sports

    I grew up on the water, so water sports were a big deal. What other way would you want to spend a beautiful summer weekend? Out of the boat of course! In my family, tubing is considered a water sport, and it’s one we take great pride in. Every spring/summer we all wait for the day that the boat gets put in the water so we can get out there and fly across the water. All of us do it, from my grandfather to my youngest brother. We have went through several tubes and banana boats over the last few years, but we crave the thrill so we always buy…

  • Taking Chances

      As you can see I am about 5 days behind on the A to Z Challenge. To be honest, I didn’t even think I would make it that far without missing several days. But It happened, and here I am to catch up! For the letter T I am going to talk about taking chances. Taking a chance is something I find very important in life. Along with taking those chances, you also have to accept them. It took me a little while to grasp the concept, but at times you just have to dive in. The first time I had to make a big decision was when I…

  • RAVENS!

    It’s finally April 21st, meaning I can finally post about the Baltimore Ravens! I know I have mentioned them several times before, but now I can have an entire day dedicated to telling the world about my favorite team! So without further ado, The Baltimore Ravens! I became a fan in 1996. You ask why I wasn’t a fan since I was born? Well the Ravens became a football team in 1996. Baltimore had a team before (BOO Colts) and some drama had happened with the Browns (meh), but then in ’96 we got our very own NFL team. Me and my family went to a game in one of…
