When You're So Close To The Finish Line But You Still Have To Wake Up Early... Why??:(
Alright guys, we are sooooooo close to being done and I'm about ready to freak out. You might be wondering why I am in freak out mode when tomorrow is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. Because I appreciate you all for reading this, I will explain my dilemma as quick and as short as I can so you don't actually die of boredom because if you all died there'd be no one to read my insanity and commit me to a psychiatric hospital eventually. It's that simple folks, it's that simple. Ok, back to my issue and not my crumbling mental state, which would be tomorrow morning. Still confused? Allow me to elaborate. I wake up on every school morning at roughly 7:00 (Not my choice). So I wake up at this time every morning, including today. My issue is that tomorrow is the last day of school and yet again, I have to wake up at seven. WHY??????? It seriously sucks worse than school lunch (Look for that story later). In my opinion, I wouldn't have to wake up this early on the last day but sadly school is still scheduled to start at 8:20 tomorrow morning as usual. This really bugs me (I'm triggered as Kenzie says) because we literally only go to school from 8:20-11:13 which is almost 3 hours but not quite but the just is that we will only be in school for a short amount of time, so why do I have to wake up early, go to school, and then come home 3-ish hours later? It doesn't make sense people, it doesn't make sense! Ok, so before I get into a full-on rant about early start times, I'm going to wrap it up for today! Remember to like and comment! Write you all soon!

WE ARE ALMOST THERE!
Hello my fabulous readers! I hope you enjoyed another skin melting day in our non-air conditioned buildings. Thankfully for us, there are two days left of school but not for people who work through the summer. Luckily, we're not talking about that unfortunate topic today because that would be an incredibly boring post. So instead we are discussing the last two days of school, which shouldn't have happened this late but we'll roll with it I guess. Continuing with the last couple days of school, let me tell you what we are doing tomorrow and Friday. Tomorrow we are going to the high school for the middle school variety show as well as our end of the year award ceremony. Yes, I know that normally the award ceremony would take place on the last day of school but on the last day of school, the eighth graders are going to the high school to do their freshman stuff while my class is doing all of our eighth grade stuff at the middle school, which is why the ceremony was moved to tomorrow. Then on Friday we go from 8:20-11:13 literally for 2 hours and 53 minutes doing absolutely nothing. Ok, I shouldn't say nothing because we are cleaning stuff out and talking to new teachers, so not doing nothing but you all get my point (or at least I hope you do). Anyway after that, it'll finally be summer and we'll all be free from school for a while. That's it for today guys! Come back for more of my insanity tomorrow! With that being said, I will write you all tomorrow.

Hello wonderful people! I hope you all enjoyed your first day back at school or work but luckily there is a god above that has finally brought us to the last three days of school. I seriously thought that this day would never come, which of course is stupid because days keep going and going forever so we would eventually get here but it felt like a long way off in my mind. Even though I would love to talk with all of you about this glorious week, that is not what we are here for today. We are here today to discuss yesterday. It's kind of a mix between how I spent my Memorial Day and (gasp) why there was no blog yesterday. So in order to explain this day, I'll need to tell it as a story obviously, which would make this post my first story time with you lovely people! Ok, so this story actually begins on Saturday (cue whatever dramatic story time music you people have on your Spotify, Pandora, or Apple Music accounts) when I was super bored. My mom, seeing my extreme case of boredom called me over and she's like, "How about we go and get some ice cream since it's about as hot as an oven, microwave, and blow dryer combined." and I'm like, "Yeah, cool. Good plan." Then as I'm turning she says, "How about we go shopping tomorrow for last day of school outfits." Of course I'm like, "Yeah, cool. Good plan." This moment ladies and gentlemen is where our story begins. The next day we wake up and we do some cleaning, last minute shopping trips and errands, then we try and find clothes that still look somewhat decent from when we bought them in August, eat lunch, and leave the house. We drive for about an hour when we finally come upon actual, literal heaven: Target! What, did you think I was talking about something else? Whenever we go somewhere that has a Target that's where we go because Target is ten times better than Walmart by about 200%. So we're looking in Target for last day of school outfits (PS: When I was originally typing this, I put back to school outfits, thought you might find that funny). We finally find clothes that we like and after many hardships like able-bodied people stealing the only handicap accessible changing room as well as some idiot parking in the no parking zone next to our car, the life of a wheelchair-bound person, oh the stories I could tell would for sure get me a book deal folks. We finally leave Target then after getting a much needed dinner, we go home. Now by the time we got home it was almost six and I was really tired but I still had homework I had to do, which I had already put off as long as humanly possible so I couldn't anymore. I finish my homework at 6:45-ish and I was about ready to pass out when I made the decision to not do anything for the rest of the night and that is what I did people because I needed it! Here ends our adventure as to why there was no blog post yesterday. I hope you all enjoyed this little story time, as usual come back for more fun and craziness with me tomorrow! I don't know what it'll be yet but it'll be good, I promise. Also, if you would like to see everything that I got while shopping, that video will be up with in a day or so on my YouTube channel. I love you each and every one of you for reading this and I will write you all soon.

Good morning everyone, welcome back! I hope you're having a great weekend so far and that you have a great Memorial Day. I wanted to discuss something that I really love and that is subscription boxes. Now if you haven't had a subscription box I will tell you all of the fantastical reasons why you should order one of these. The box that I am subscribed to as you all know is Play by Sephora. This is a great little box and it's only $10.00 a month! With this box you get 6 beauty products customized especially for you. There are more great boxes that you can get of course such as Casely, which sends you new phone cases, Fab Fit Fun, which sends you a variety of things from makeup to jewelry. These things are my saving grace because I can get everything that I need all in one place and I don't have to hunt through stores to find what I want. Obviously you can't take my word for it so I recommend doing your own research to find what works for you! I think you could a benefit from one of these fantastic boxes but that is just my personal opinion from my experiences. That's it for today guys! I hope you found this article helpful and interesting if you're looking for something to up your beauty game.

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend so far. We need to discuss something that really is so confusing: the weather. You might be wondering how the weather is confusing so let me tell you. Ok, so do all of you have some sort of way to look at the weather on your mobile devices? If you answered yes to this question, have you ever noticed that one day the weather is rainy and kind of cold and then the next day it's hot and really sunny? This really confuses and angers me because I'll look at it and it'll say whatever the next day is supposed to be so I'll plan my outfit accordingly but then when I wake up it's something totally different outside. So you know what I have to do now? I have to change my whole outfit because it doesn't go with the forecast! I know this is probably going to sound dumb, but why does it change so dramatically? What makes it change so drastically? I have been confused about it for a very long. time, so if any of you know what makes it change, let me know in the comments because I kind of want to know so I can stop being dumb old this subject. Alright, that is it for today. I know it was a little boring and not so funny but I thought that this would be a good follow-up to my post a few days ago about the weather that was coming to us. I hope you enjoyed and I will write you all soon.

Welcome back beautiful people! I don't know if you've heard yet, you probably have since it's blasted all over the great big web called social media, but the Iowa Falls-Alden School District is releasing its prisoners two hours earlier then normal today. Really people. Today was seriously the only day that I had a say on whether or not I went to school and of course they let out early today instead of yesterday just to make my life more difficult then it already is. You're probably wondering how this makes my life difficult since I didn't go to school, so please allow me to elaborate. I have sisters for those of you who don't know, a lot of sisters and they are incredibly annoying times the biggest number ever known to man (I don't know it because I'm not very good at math and before you say it I am not stupid or dumb, I just don't care about math that much to take the time to learn all of the numbers. Sidebar over) So normally my sisters get out of school at 3:13 and 3:16 (Weird times, I know, I don't get it either) except on Wednesdays, but that's a story for another time. They get out and then they come home and make noise and blare music on their speakers and watch TV and yell and scream and fight, they sound fantastic don't they. Anyway, before they get home it's quite and peaceful and I don't have to yell at people to communicate over the noise and anytime I can get this time of peace, it's fantastic. But now they'll be home in 47 minutes and I am not prepared at all. They're seriously a lot sometimes and I can't run up to my room and be alone because A.) I can't walk and B.) My room is our dinning room and it's separated from the rest of the house by curtains so not a lot of privacy so they can just come and go as they please, it's really annoying. But I will live, I always do but I thought you might find my annoyances funny. That's it for today folks. Come back tomorrow for more!

A burst of heat is heading our way people. I know you're all thinking, "It's hot right now, my face is literally melting off my skull!" Well, think again because with the expected heat your body might just melt into a puddle of disgusting human goop like the wicked witch of the west. (Disclaimer: I am in no way saying that you, my loyal readers are wicked witches of the west. I was simply using her to further my comical exaggerations of how hot it is going to get. Now back to reading.) Glancing ahead at the thing I call the world's most wonderful invention ever created: my weather app, the temperatures are going to be increasing moderately. Now please stand by for a look at your local forecast: Currently at 4:21pm on Thursday May 24th, 2018 it is 89*F (I know it's not a degree sign, my computer doesn't have one, so chill yourselves out) but it feels like (drumroll please!): 91*F! Isn't that wonderful folks! So like I said, the heat is on. Now a look at your local 7 day forecast:
Friday 5/25: High: 89 Low: 66 with a chance of storms (fan-freaking-tastic)
Saturday 5/26: High: 93 Low: 67 with LOTS of sun (Be prepared for mild to severe sunburns. Apply sunscreen as needed)
Sunday 5/27: High: 95 Low: 69 with same conditions as Saturday (Apply sunscreen as needed)
Monday 5/28: High: 91 Low: 68 with partly sunny skies (Please use EXTREME caution while celebrating Memorial Day as in don't die of heat stroke because if you all died then who would read these things, keep up people!)
Tuesday 5/29: High: 88 Low: 68 with a chance of storms (A little cooler but don't let that fool you, the sun LOVES playing tricks like that)
Wednesday 5/30: High: 87 Low: 67 with partly sunny skies (Reminder that it's almost June so these temperatures are probably just to make us happy before they melt us to death)
Thursday 5/31: High: 88 Low: 67 with partly sunny skies (Please note that these temperatures are extremely close to Wednesday's so the same reminder is in effect until further notice)
Friday 6/01: High: 87 Low: 65 with a chance of showers (Please take the proper weather and clothing precautions as this is the last day of school, so if you are planning to wear any type of heel, stiletto, wedge, sandal, or flip-flop wear sneakers on the way to school and then switch shoes when you get to school as to not ruin your perfect end-of-the-school-year look but again just an advisement)
Now back to your regularly scheduled program of whatever it is you do after reading my posts of all things fashion, fun, and extra!

All right people. It's finally time to discuss the biggest social and fashion event of the year. What might this be you ask? The Royal wedding, of course! Now I know this discussion is a tad bit late but I am doing it now, which is what counts. If you don't know what the Royal Wedding is, I mean no offense to you, but you have been living under a rock for the past 7-ish months. Now for those of you who keep up with the news, tabloids, and your Google feeds, let's dive into the Royal Wedding! Okay, basic facts first: Prince Harry, the second son born to Princess Diana and Prince Charles as well as 6th in line for the British throne after Prince Louis, married American actress Meghan Markle on Saturday May 19th at St George's Chapel. Many high-profile guest were invited to the wedding such as George Clooney, Oprah, Sir Elton John, The Beckhams, Serena Williams, and of course the members of the royal household. These A-listers were a sight to see, sporting many outfits done by major fashion icons. The Duchess of Cambridge herself wore a pale yellow Alexander McQueen dress and a hat by Phillip Treacy, as well as Jimmy Choo heels. The bride was wearing a dress by Clare Waight Keller and kept the design a secret until the day of the wedding. Talk about the agony of waiting that long! Those were some of the bigger looks and high-profile guests because if I wrote everything we'd be here a long time discussing everything. So that is it for today, I hope you enjoyed this little peek into the Royal Wedding if you didn't watch it live or all six hours like I did. As always, come back tomorrow for more fun and weird topics!

Hello all! Welcome back to my blog, I hope that you're having a fantastic Tuesday. Today I wanted to change it up a little and talk about makeup. For those of you who don't know me, I love makeup. Not so much that I'm obsessed but enough so that I know a little bit and that I have a significant collection. Mainly I buy makeup at Sephora, which is a pretty good makeup store that I love. Now sometimes I go into a store but I mostly get my makeup through the mail. Now before you go thinking that I (my mother) pay millions of dollars just to have it shipped to me, I will explain what money-friendly method I use to obtain my makeup. So I am a subscriber of Sephora Play which is Sephora's monthly box. It's like Birchbox and Ipsy if you're confused. With this box I get six sample size products that Sephora sells chosen specifically from the contents of my beauty profile. Now these are great, high-qaulity products. I get things from Marc Jacobs, Kat Von D, Sephora's Collection, and more. If you are thinking how in the world you've never heard of this thing, you're in luck. All you have to do is go to Sephora's website, click on the Play category, fill out some information, fill out a beauty profile and you're done. This box costs only 10 dollars and they bill you automatically until you cancel your subscription. They come every month toward the end of the month but it's worth the wait for all the things you get. In my opinion, I would download the Sephora app as well as register for email updates. Doing these two things are helpful because then you get first look at products, you can preview the box before it come, you can watch videos about each product in your box, and you can get updated as soon as your box gets shipped. Ok, I know that was a lot of information but I thought you might appreciate all the facts in one place. All right, that is it for today and I hope you enjoyed it as well as finding it informative. Come back tomorrow for more things fun!

Hello all! Welcome back, I hope you're having a fabulous day and if not, I hope that it gets better. So today was a very important day for me. Ok, well not that important but it made me really excited. Today was the last Monday of the school year and I am so happy because school exhausts me! It also kind of sucks because the work doesn't stop even if we're this close to being done. My example being that I have three homework assignments to complete! Three! I swear it should be illegal to give us this much homework when we're nine days out. I know it's a stupid law but it should be one in my mind. All right, that is all that I have for you today. I know that it was kind of boring and not all that interesting but I wanted to bring you into my thoughts for a little while so you could see my viewpoint on things. I hope you all found this to be a good read and that you come back tomorrow for more!
