monopoly + weird dreams || ft. me questioning my own sanity

Thursday, February 23, 2017

*may or may not be very happy with how these pics turned out* they took like 40 minutes to upload and edit BC INTERNET WAS PLAYING WITH ME

do you ever just get in those moods where you just...rly want to go somewhere, or do something?

well, I got in one of 'em. (and still am, k)

my sis mentioned monopoly and my brain went, "gosh I wanna play that - we haven't in forever." but we didn't own it, k? so i forgot about it

I don't dream often, but when I do they are rllllyyyyy weird (i.e. when I dreamt some weird hacker lady was chasing me on this island and then I was on a boat then I was in a apartment reading this letter about this guy who wrote about his wife and the doctors were apparently 90% sure her heart was gonna crack and he wanted to be prepared. THAT WAS SO WEIRD OKAY i'm still questioning why the heart cracking thing wasn't questioned in my dream and yes that was all in one dream and yes i'm still totally weirded out. btw in that dream Hannah was with me the whole time DONT ASK bc i legit have no idea) 

wow I rambled. but anyways, I dream weird. so the other night I dreamt I was looking for a monopoly game in the store and calling over to my sis like; "WHAT KIND DO I GET?" (bc there are always different types of the monopoly game)

so i told my sisters this and we decided we should call the local thrift store to see if they had the game (we were ready to just jump in the car and go into town bc they usually have one - but my mom suggested we call lol)


and no we aren't that sporadic all the time - we've just been sick for a while lol

SO. DOES ANYONE HAVE A MONOPOLY BOARD THEY'LL LOAN ME? yes i'm still going on with this shush okay im weird i know

are your dreams completely random and weird?
are you sporadic?

childhood movies + sickdays || I broke my staying-up-late-record

Saturday, February 18, 2017

life has been pretty much on-the-couch-dying-from-coughing-and-stuffy-nose for the past five days. BUT WHATEVER YA KNOW i'm here getting this super messy post together. so. here we go?...

little sis: what's wrong
me: I have a cold
sis: oh.
sis: *starts chuckling*
me: *laughing* waddya laughing at?
sis: nothing. i was just trying to make you laugh. why do words make you laugh? maybe they are funny. like...pluto, play dough, pluto, play dough, pluto, play dough. *laughs at herself*

*unashamedly watches childhood shows with the siblings when sick* okay. guys. you do know they have Wordgirl on amazon prime, right?? 

I broke my record and went to bed at 4 a.m. and finally fell asleep around 5 or 6 a.m. 

I got like 3?...hrs of sleep? heh. don't worry, I legit fell asleep on my sisters bed later 

when Julia and I are sick our sense of humor is spot on - somehow I can't remember anything we said tho?... *cough cough*

R A N D O M   F A C T -
did you know that if you tip your head back and hold your breath for as long as you can, it clears your stuffy nose? or you die. one or the other. #randomness

*leaves bc this post was sporadic randomness but ohwell*

latest you've stayed up??
have any "hacks" for colds?

we went rollerblading || i fell + embarrassment

Monday, February 13, 2017

yep see me. i'm that blur on the left. yep, me.

so Julia and I both found roller blades of our own (and i totally did not ride them around in the store. heh. me.) and when when we went to go rollerblading we thought:

"hey look we can save $2 bc we have our own blades. neeaatt." 

we put them on and went out and...well. they must put some sort of coating on bc legit we were doing splits it was so slippery. so we went ended up renting some (and whoa, like, dude. the difference)

so yes. we didn't end up saving money in the end lolol #totallyus

it was epicness. but then half way thru, I decided to try to ace that feet-in front-of-one-another-while-turning, right?



I legit tripped over my own legs and did this flip-roll-thing (dont even know what i did tbh)

I was laying flat on the floor and the first thing I see is julia struggling not to laugh as she looks at me lying there (okay she wasn't really trying that hard not to laugh)

me: "just help me up, will you?"

but yes she did pull me up and ask if I was okay (while laughing but whateves. sisters.) and yes jsyk I survived with only slight embarrassment that we laughed off, and then I was back at it. and at the end of the 2 1/2 hrs. I had pretty much mastered the turn?..

walking after rollerblading for so long tho - legit. rubber legs. and omw so tired but it was a blast and yep let's go again

have you ever fallen while rollerblading or ice skating?

FLASHBACK ALERT || childhood - do you remember?

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Childhood was magical. we all know it.

But isn't it kinda sad that some things from your childhood have just been completely forgotten - I mean, they are in your brain somewhere obv...but it's like they have been forgotten. I was on Pinterest, (SHOCKER. actually, legit, I rarely get on shush) and saw this pin that struck a memory - and ohmygoodness I had completely forgotten about it. Like, that lost bit of childhood had come back. 

so I'm testing you all (ya know just wanna see how much you missed out on childhood, or if yours was as epic as mine) so, here we go. 

// 1. dragontales - YOU WATCHED THIS RIGHT??

// 2. VCR towers - okay tell me you did this

// 3. Webkinz. did you have one of these?

^^ legit i think i laughed way too hard at this for my own good

// 4. playing outside until 5:00 then coming in bc all your fav shows were on (cyberchase, fetch, wordgirl, etc.) oh. and tell me you remember this show

^^also. we all eat cookies like that, right?

// 5. the ground is lava and only the couches are safe. 'Nuf said.

// 6. also. playground gravel is water and the structure is a pirate ship. look out for sharks. or alligators.

// 7. remember the glow in the dark stars?

// 8. sliding down the stairs in a sleeping bag? c'mon. admit it. 

// 9. okay. these?

// 10. picking up the scooter + it swinging = death

// 11. barefeet on pavement also = death

// 12. edible candy necklaces were the coolest thing EVAH (plus whenever I see them it makes my think of my great grandpa <33)

// 13. did you watch this??

// 14. computer play = paint and solitaire 

// 15. you about cried when Andy left in toy story 3

// 16. the super loud intro to movies = "GET THE REMOTE. TURN IT DOWN"

// 17. old pics be like
Mom: "awww. You are so cute!"

// 18. you had to master this 

// 19. being chosen by your siblings to ask mom and dad for a snack late at night be like

// 20. sliding around in the kitchen on your socks (but we still all do this right? shhh) 

so, there you go. 20 childhood memories. oh, and, btw -

so don't grow up. understand? Good. well, I'm off to Neverland *waves*

do you remember any of these?
what is your fav childhood memory?

imma eat all the brownies || tree = papercuts + splinters

Friday, February 3, 2017

oh the lovely smell of brownies baking *sighs happily*

i'm just sitting here going thru old random writings. Isn't it the best feeling when you look at something you wrote a few months ago and kinda like it and wonder why you didn't go on with it? but some are just like 

*winces bc arg papercut* no joke tho - i'm 10000000% sure all paper is out to get me. this time I just moved my school books and BAM. SLICE MY WHOLE FINGER OFF WILL YOU LIKE C'MON

^^ i was trying to figure out papercuts and splinters with Hannah at midnight lol

*jumps up to go get brownies out of oven* *squeals* I WANNA EAT EM ALL ahem. anyways. As you see, it snowed. *blinks* and yes I TOTALLY RISKED MYSELF FOR THESE PICS like gosh the siblings don't care - like, if you are there and in range watch out for the snowball bc you are the total target. aka they have no sympathy for innocent bystanders.

*sneaks a bit of brownie* *blows* *burns mouth* *moves pan and burns hand* IM OKAY THX FOR ASKING

Also on a side note - they put Finding Dory on Netflix so if you haven't watched it grab a younger sib and go watch adorable little dory. or watch it yourself like a cool person. C'MON. DO IT NOW.

would you throw a snowball at me? *raises arm to throw one back at you*
