Nine Most Memorable Things in 2018

My Mom and Mark Got Engaged

 

When I first started this blog, my mom was actually going through a divorce with a man that I absolutely hated. I do plan on posting something really special for their wedding which is set for June 2019. I was actually there and was fully aware that it would be happening.

 

I Graduated High School

 

I never talked about this but I actually graduated later than I had originally planned. Instead of graduating in May like everybody else, I actually graduated in July because I had to take an online class due to a scheduling mishap. High School was definitely not the best years of my life but I am so glad that it’s over so that I can continue on with my life.

 

I Went Vegan

 

I can not believe it’s almost been a year since I went vegan. I actually went vegan very early on in the year and it boggles my mind that it’s only been a year. I feel like a lot of my experiences and my life has kinda been shaped around this and has helped me in a positive light. It’s been one of the best decisions I ever made and I cant wait to see what happens in 2019.

 

I Visited NYC for a Week

 

One of the best things about this trip was easily the vegan food. Before I went vegan, I had no idea just how many things I could still eat when I finally made the decision. But going to New York was an entirely new ball game, everywhere we went had vegan options and this one off the wall place we went to and didn’t even realize was vegan. Visiting everything and experiencing the city through food was the best part of the entire trip and I don’t think I could ever forget it.

 

I Started Queens University of Charlotte

 

In August, I began attending Queens University of Charlotte with a major in Creative Writing. Surprisingly enough, my minors have always been the same but I have slowly been fine tuning them to be what I want which is why my official minors are Jewish Studies and Philosophy. Queens has been an amazing experience, where I tried Laser Tag for the first time, walked 2.4 miles in the snow just so I could have pizza from Mellow Mushroom, had many late nights with my friends.

 

I Went to NYC on Halloween

 

This is probably one of the most random things I have ever done in my life. About 3 or 4 days before we left, the conversation began because my friend had won free tickets to see Hamilton for October 31st. We were in the front row and everything but at the time, we were obviously in Charlotte, NC so there was so much driving involved. We found the Hell on Wheels truck and followed it for 20 minutes and then finally got to see Hamilton. It was one of the most amazing, exhausting, and hilarious 24 hours of my life.

 

Below is the Vlog that my friend had made, I am not heavily featured in this but that red volkswagen is my lovely car so that’s always fun!

 

 

Madison Surprised Me On My Birthday

 

This is honestly one of the sweetest things in my entire life. My roommate surprised me on my birthday by decorating my side of the room with over 40 balloons. It was the sweetest and most thoughtful thing in the world and I love her dearly. Shout out to her for also taking me to Cinnaholic!

 

I Went to Carolina Rebellion

 

I went to Carolina Rebellion with Mark, my mom’s now fiance but at the time they were simply dating and it was absolutely amazing. I found my childhood and fell back in love with Black Veil Brides all over again. I don’t think I could ever forget this experience and the music that came along with it!

 

My Relationship

 

So I actually did date somebody in 2018. It was an unfortunately short relationship but it’s definitely memorable for multiple reasons and even though we are no longer together nor are we talking anymore, I still think it’s noteworthy to indicate that entire situation.

Possible Costumes for Apple?

For today, I will be writing about possible halloween costumes for my ferret- Apple. I am opening up a poll for everyone to tell me what their vote is. I will announce the results in the future but make sure you fill out the contact form!

 

All of this links have been found on Etsy and I will be sharing the links with you so you can get an idea of what it may look like.


1.Rainbow Bat

I thought this was a super cute costume. A little more adorable than it is scary but he’s a ferret, he does not need to be scary!

2. Faux Leather Dragon

Apple is literally named after the Harry Potter ship; Drappe. Draco/ Apple. Draco means Apple in Latin. This almost seems like destiny and it is so cute! It should be noted that Apple would look cute in any costume though.

3. Charmander

I’m admittedly not much of a Pokemon fan but this is just the cutest thing ever.

4. Black Bat 

THE WINGS MOVE GUYS. Sorry, I just love the idea of Apple in any costume.

5. Chewbacca

I may not be a Pokemon fan but I’m definitely a Star Wars fan and I loved this the second I saw it!


This or That? – Halloween Edition

 

The original this or that list! 

 


 

1. Chocolate candy or fruity?

I used to say fruity whenever this question was asked but ever since I went vegan, I have gone crazy for chocolate. I don’t know what it is but it’s an obsession by now. So my answer is CHOCOLATE.

 

2. Witches of Vampires?

Witches. I feel like there is a lot of negative connotation for both but witches can be nice so easily and I just think they’re fascinating.

 

3. Trick or Treat?

Treat, of course!

 

4. Halloween Party or Scary Movie?

Scary movie, I hate parties.

 

5. Skeletons or Zombies?

Does anybody remember this children’s Halloween movie about this kid going to a haunted house and meeting a skeleton man and all of those other “monsters.” I can’t remember the name of it but whenever I think of skeletons, I think of that movie. I used to watch that movie EVERY Halloween!

 

6. Trick-or-Treat or Hand Out Candy?

Trick- Or- Treat. Free candy, I’m a college student, guys!

 

7. Hay Ride or Corn Maze?

I’ve never done either but I really want to do a corn maze.

 

8. Scary Costume or Funny Costume?

Funny! I love scary costumes for other people but I think funny ones are the best.

 

9. Pumpkin Seeds or Pumpkin Pie?

Pumpkin seeds! I remember this one time when I was little, I was scooping the insides of the pumpkin out (Because it used to be my favorite thing about pumpkin carving) and my grandfather retrieved all of the pumpkin seeds from my pile of gunk and made cinnamon and sugar roasted pumpkin seeds. It was the best.

 

10. Bottle Feed A Baby Zombie or Walk Alone Through A Dark Forest?

Walk alone through a dark forest! One of the creepiest movies I ever watched had this creepy vampire/ zombie baby eating this girl’s breasts and I HATED that movie so much.

 

11. Bats or Black Cats?

They’re both so cute! But I think bats are more interesting.

 

12. Pumpkin Spice or hot Chocolate?

I HATE pumpkin spice so Hot Chocolate, for sure.

 

13. Celebrate in your neighborhood or at the mall?

I’ve never been to the mall for Halloween so probably my neighborhood.
