I’ve sat here and stared at these words with so many things running through my mind. But what do I feel the most strongly about?
We go through our trials and tribulations together. Every Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthday, graduation, we have all been together. That’s my favorite time, all of us together as a family. We can shoot the shit together, laugh about stupid stuff and every once it awhile, it takes a serious note. Those serious times are some of the best, mostly because I’m used to my family yelling at one another. Not because they’re mad, just because they have to talk over each other. It’s normal for them.
And not all family has to be blood related. Take my older sister for instance, she’s been in the family for over 10 years and she’s my family now.We’ve lived together, we gave each other advice and shared our ups and downs together. We give each other crap and tease each other like normal sisters do. I love you sis.
I love my family. They get on my nerves. We’re there for each other. Maybe not all time time, but if someone desperately needed something, we’d all be there, supporting them. Then they get on my nerves some more and we love each other anyway.
Family is disfunctional, there’s no denying it. But as long as there is love, it’s doesn’t matter. We all have our flaws, whatever they may be, but we’re accepting of who they are.
As of lately, I’ve had writer’s block. I haven’t wanted to delve into my feelings or write about the new adventures I’ve been having. So instead, I’ve decided to do a 30-day writer’s blog challenge which I found here, through Maximum Wage’s blog.
So to begin, today is day 1: Five ways to win my heart.
I can only write five? That will take some trimming down. It takes a lot to get into this girl’s heart, I add on more every year. Maybe that’s being mature or being picky, but here it goes…
1. Be able to have an intelligent conversation with me. On top of that, I cannot stand dumb grammar errors. It’s a huge pet peeve. I can understand if it’s every once in a while, but if u tlk lk this all da time, I will not give you my time.
2. Have fun, be goofy! Well, not too goofy, but don’t take life serious all the time.
3. Let me be independent and you can have your free time, too! I’m a type of person that needs my own space from time to time.
4. Be ambitious to do something with your life. I’m not saying you have to be a workaholic, but someone who has a plan (and a job) is nice.
5. Be passionate and have a positive outlook on life!
A few years ago I had a very cute orange Honda Fit, aka Orange Dream Machine, which is also a drink at Jamba Juice. It had a few mods here and there like new rims, window visors and LED tail lights.
Rolling Shot! Adorbs!
Unfortunately, one night I stupidly went out when everyone was saying it was going to ice over–which NEVER happens in Houston. I thought the forecasters were overreacting about the weather like they usually do. But this time they were right… I ending up losing control of the car on an overpass.
This is what ice causes…
It was totaled and I had nothing to drive. I had to come up with a car quick. My uncle wanted to get rid of his payments and I needed something, anything. So I bought his Honda Civic, Mikayla, as I named her.
Nice and simple Civic
But I’m anything but simple. It’s a nice car but it just wasn’t me. I brainstormed on what car I’d like to own. Acura TL? Nice, but too big. Honda Accord or Civic? They’re just okay. Other options wasted too much gas or only were manual transmission.
Why the hell don’t I just get another Honda Fit?
I started looking…
Is this what I think it is?
Some fixed up my old car and was selling it! What a coincidence–if you believe in all that.
I continued my search and found another orange Honda Fit with super low miles at a dealership 5 miles away from my house. How about that?!
My new baby!
She’s a beaut. I just have no idea what to name her. Any suggestions?
