Dogs are gross. Cute… but gross

Nov. 23: What’s the weirdest/grossest thing your pet has ever done?

Hi everyone. I mentioned a couple posts back that my dog is rather fond of eating anything she can get her mouth on. So, naturally, the weirdest and grossest thing she has ever done is eaten something disgusting. She has eaten a wide array of things, from socks to sports tickets.

However, none of them compare to her personal favorite place, the bathroom garbage. Why she (and every other dog I know of) likes this forbidden wasteland is beyond me.

We try to keep the doors shut of our house to my keep up-to-know-good dog from getting into places she shouldn’t, but when it’s really cold/ hot out and we need better air circulation or someone has just gotten out of the shower, it can be difficult to keep them closed or have someone watching at all times.

The most disgusting, almost vomit inducing thing my dog has ever done happened in the bathroom. Someone (unbeknownst to me) had just gotten out of the shower, and naturally left the door open so the room could cool down and the condensation can dry up.

As I was getting ready to hop in the shower, i heard a rustling noise that could only be my dog up to no good. I peeked my head out of my bedroom only to see my dog’s butt and the rest of her body hidden in the bathroom.

Yelling at her to get out of the bathroom, she obliged without looking at me, knowing she had done wrong. I closed the bathroom door in annoyance and continued on with getting ready. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a string hanging out of my dog’s mouth. Oh no, is all I could think.

After chasing my dog around the house and finally getting her to drop the mystery item, I saw it. My dog had stolen a USED TAMPON from the bathroom garbage and had planned on eating it.

By far the worst thing she is ever done. Ever

Until tomorrow

I LOVE The Fosters

Nov. 22: What TV show are you obsessed with? Share 10 reasons it’s better than the other shows.

Hey everyone. If you saw one my more recent posts about hating MTV, you probably could understand that I was obsessed with Finding Carter… for so many reasons. I don’t watch an immense amount of TV shows, and if I do they’re with my dad because we both enjoy a chuckle or two together. However, since I really can’t pick Finding Carter, I am totally obsessed with the Fosters. It’s a show on ABC Family Freeform and it is definitely one of my all time favorite shows. Why, you may ask? Here’s 10 reasons why.

  1. Maia Mitchell is in it. She is such a funny person in real life and is an amazing actress as well.
  2. They address current events from both perspectives. Trans rights, LGBTQIA+ rights and lives in general, police brutality, foster children, mental illnesses, drug abuse, school shooters, etc.
  3. It isn’t your stereotypical ideal family. There are two moms, one biological child, and 4 adopted kids
  4. They address household troubles. Whether is be spouse fights, parent to child fights, or sibling fights This show lets you know that there can be fights and disputes in a family and there can still be so much love.
  5. It is relatable in general for all ages. There are adult characters who go through shit and teens as well. If you ever feel alone, watch this show and you won’t.
  6. PLOT TWISTS. There are so many things I never expected would happen and BAM they happened.
  7. Great chemistry between the actors. I follow a ton of the actors on social media and even when they aren’t acting they are together and the main characters are the best of friends on and off set.
  8. You will experience every single emotion possible in the span of one hour. I have laughed, cried, screamed, hyperventilated and more throughout a single episode.
  9. There is definitely drama but it does not overpower the rest of the sow like so many TV shows do.
  10. This show is the epitome of “love is thicker than blood.” from adopted children, marriages, to best friends, this show tells you that in the end, love is the most important thing that everyone needs and not a single character will settle for less.

I would highly recommend this show to everyone and if you watch let me know if you love it as much as I do.

Until tomorrow

Get this… I like being alone

Nov. 21: What is the one thing you wish people better understood about something in your life?

I wouldn’t consider myself an extrovert, but I also wouldn’t consider myself an introvert either. I love spending time with my friends, family, etc. but only to an extent. I have never been one of those people who can spend every day of the week, weekend, summer, etc with their friends. After I use so much of my energy spending time with people, whether it be family or friends, I need a day or more to recuperate and regain my energy.

Not only do I need time to reenergize,  I also hate last minute plans. I am one of those people who definitely has plans for doing nothing and have allotted time in my week for doing so. If I am laying on the couch, watching TV or doing nothing at all and someone asks to hang out with me, I can’t say yes. I always make up some excuse that I have to go somewhere soon and that we should hang out that weekend or what not. It’s not that I don’t want to see that person, it’s just I am emotionally ready enough to leave the house and socialize.

People never seem to understand how I am not always ready to go somewhere and do something. I just really wish people wouldn’t question my need for doing these things and would accept this and simply try to make plans a day or two in advance.

Until tomorrow

The Winter Wonderland Tag

Hi everyone, Debbie from Debbie’s Library tagged me to do The Winter Wonderland Tag. Be sure to check out her blog, very cool stuff. When I saw this I got extremely excited. I am one of those people who believe the Holiday season starts November 1st. When my local radio station started playing Christmas music on Friday at 4:05pm you better believe that I was ready just like I’m ready for this tag.


The Questions

Do you like the cold?- okay okay okay okay. So unless you live in Russia, some of those most extreme winters are found in Midwest and upper North America. I do not like when the temperature is -7 degrees Fahrenheit and with the wind-chill it feels like -20 degrees Fahrenheit. I do not enjoy the cold where I can’t walk 5 feet outside with wet hair and have it be frozen. I do enjoy colder weather. I like being able to see my breath in the air and being able to go out comfortably with a hat, gloves, coat, and scarf. I don’t even mind when my nose is red from the cold. So, I like the cold, I just don’t like the extreme cold Chicago and Wisconsin choose to bestow on me most days from November to April

Favorite part about Winter- Going to the German Christkindlmarket every year with some family and friends after breakfast at Seventh on Heaven.

Does it snow where you live- DOES IT SNOW?!?!?!? All I can say is hell yes it snows.

Favorite clothing item in winter- Scarves. I can wear them with sweaters if it’s somewhat decent of a temperature outside or with my winter coats for when it’s a lot colder

Your favorite winter memory- Probably last winter when I came home from San Diego and seeing my sister because of how excited she was.

Favorite hot drink- Peppermint Mochas from Starbucks. Soy milk and no whipped cream of course.

Best winter book to read curled up in a blanket- Milk and Honey- Rupi Kaur

Best winter movie to watch- How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the real version not the cartoon one. It is hardly ever on anymore and it is always a treat when it does make its appearance on ABC family.

Do you do any winter sports (skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating)- Okay, story time. A. No I cannot do any of these things. When I was in fourth grade, my best friend had her birthday at an ice skating rink. Her mom and my mom (she was our neighbor so it was convenient) piled 10 girls into their minivans and we made our way to the rink. Like most of the other girls who went, I also had never ice skated. A bunch of my friends and I stayed on the edge holding onto the railing so we could get the hang of skating. As I was trying to skate I stepped too far forward or the girl in front of me stopped quickly (I don’t remember it was 10 years ago) and basically we linked skates and both ended up on the ground. She was fine but I ended up falling directly on top of the other skate, piercing my butt. My butt was bleeding, my pants had ripped, I was crying, and finally ended up with a bruise the size of a softball and couldn’t sit for weeks.

Favorite Christmas/Holidays/New Year tradition- Every year on New Year’s Eve, I go to one of my two friends’ house and we do a secret Santa gift exchange and then wait until midnight to ring in the new year together with a ton of super cute photographs.

Food fights

Nov. 18: What’s the dumbest thing you and a partner have ever fought about?

Hi everyone. Okay, I hate to say this but I can be very passive aggressive when it comes to disagreements. So typically, when it comes to significant others, friends, and family, there aren’t many fights.

Despite this, I am also a very indecisive person. The only thing I ever really argue/fight about with anyone is where to eat.  Like I can honestly say it’s never caused any actual fights or a strain on any relationship but it is such a hassle.

Being vegan, my options can sometimes be limited, so every time I go out my friends make me pick where we go. After rolling my eyes, I tell them that most places they pick have vegan options and that wherever they pick will also be fine. After they roll their eyes, they tell me “You’re the one with the dietary restrictions… so you have to pick.” After go back and forth for awhile we both finally decide on a place to eat.

Sometimes however, it isn’t that easy. I was once with my friend and we both couldn’t decide what to eat. This was actually before I went vegan so there were no excuses for places we couldn’t eat. We spent an hour driving around debating over where we would eat. We then went mini golfing and drove around for another hour before finally settling on Denny’s.

I hope you all don’t struggle this much with where to eat.
