Thirty Day Blog Challenge: Day 27

Day 27: "Do you want to be famous?"
Not really. I think I would wind up like Eminem or something. I love to help people, like charity work or just listening to their problems. But I hate the public, as a general. I cannot stand large groups of people. I shut down if I feel like they all expect something from me, which as a famous person, they do. Regardless of what it is, they expect something.
People drain me immensely. I have to have time to get away from people and listen to music, play sax and guitar, read, crochet, read, or what have you. I am not a fan of being in the spotlight. I can do it for short bits of time but that's it.
I don't feel like I would be a good famous person, and I'm ok with that.

Thirty Day Blog Challenge: Day 26

Day 26: "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"
This is a really hard one. If I said sadness, it would take away a lot of lessons for people. If I said sickness, then the population would grow exponentially and never decrease. Eliminating stupidity would also take away a lot of lessons from people. Eliminating greed would eliminate some people's motivation.
I am not sure what I would take away because while there are many pros to taking away things such as sadness, suffering, and sickness, there are also cons. Every choice, no matter how small, can have far reaching consequences.

Thirty Day Blog Challenge: Day 25

Day 25: "Write about the last dream you remember having."
 Unfortunately I don't always remember my dreams. They are pretty vivid when I do, but I haven't remembered any in a while. I may come back to this post later and fill it in. With being under the Southern weather known as Pollen, I have been under an antihistamine induced sleep. No dreams to be had.

Thirty Day Blog Challenge: Day 24

Goodness I don't know how I got so far behind. I'm going to blame it on trying to get everything ready for our PCB trip Wednesday. Well, Today will be catch up day.

Day 24: "Write about the worse injury you've ever had."
It's hard to pick one over the other, mostly because none of them were really serious. There are four definite ones that I remember.
When I was young, 6 or younger, my parents owned a store. For some reason, me and my brother were doing something really really stupid. I know, I know, that's usually how injuries occur. He was pushing me around the store one night (really late, way past closing) on a pair of hand-trucks. Our store sold literally everything, mostly due to the fact we were in the middle of no where. We decided I should hold an arrow like a jousting lance. For some reason, he either told me to hold it in front of my face like a unicorn, or I was switching hands, but at the exact moment it was in front of my face, he either lost control or intentionally drove the hand-trucks, my four year oldish self and arrow included, into the front counter. The arrow either lodged itself in between my eye ball and socket or hit me in the eye. I don't know which because I don't remember. Either way, this, of course, resulted in a highly panicked trip to the ER 30 minutes away. Now, I don't remember any of this, which is probably a good thing because I'm sure I would have lost my shit. Now, you may remember at the start of this post, I said none of the injuries I will talk about were serious. This one wasn't. I was very lucky. I have no resulting injuries from this. :D
The second one occurred not long after this one. My parents had sold the store and the house and we were packing all our belongings into a 53 foot semi trailer that my parents purchased from a friend of theirs. I was climbing in and out of the trailer at the instructions of my older (like, 10 years older than me) cousin. She was trying to get us to play some sort of game. Well, at one point, I slipped and my chin nailed the bar that you step on to step into the trailer. I busted my lip wide open. Blood everywhere. I remember this one because it hurt like a mother.
The third was after we moved into a house next to my grandfather, who owns 320 acres of farm land. My cousin (the younger sister of the one mentioned earlier) and I were riding our four wheeler down the field road to the river and back up. She had disobeyed the rules and wore flip flops. I know that doesn't seem like a big deal but it could have prevented this whole thing. We went through a mud puddle, she looked down at her foot instead of where we were going. This landed us in the drainage ditch on the side of the road. She landed first, I landed on her, and the four wheeler landed on me. We got in trouble because my dad had to run over some of the corn with the truck to pull the four wheeler out. Some bruised ribs but nothing major.
My next injury occurred in middle school. I was walking around the gym in gym class and got nailed in the face with a basket ball. It busted my lip so badly that they thought I might need stitches. My lip is still kinda uneven from healing. I did not get stitches though.
The fourth time was when I wrecked my mom's car. The car nearly flipped and the angle of impact with a concrete culvert caused the airbag to deploy directly into my rib cage. None of my ribs broke, but I still have problems from the inflammation caused by the impact.

Thirty Day Blog Challenge: Day 22

Day 22: "Write a letter to your teenage self."
Hey! You !
Stop being so pissed off and depressed! Stay focused on school and friends and dump that piece of shit that you call a boyfriend. "But I love him!" You argue and kick and scream. Yeah, for some stupi reason you do, but it doesn't mean that you won't get over it! He isn't worth losing your friends and putting your family through so much stress.
See how much you love him when he tries to slam your head into your car window for flushing his meth down the toilet. See how much you love him when you're at the clinic because you found out he slept with 3+ chicks in the week of your two year anniversary. See how much you love him when you lose everything you love for someone you think you love.
Give him up. Dump his ass on the curb, block and delete his number. Enjoy your friends and school events. Take someone else to prom. Stop being so afraid. Take more pictures! He isn't the entire planet!
Don't make promises you have no intention of keeping. Don't sell your self out for some abusive shit bag.
Get out there and get it girl, just like you know how!
It always gets better!

Thirty Day Blog Challenge: Day 21

Day 21: A picture of what you wore today."
Well, seeing as it is a weekday, I was at work. So, I was wearing a work out 2010 Rod Run shirt with some SEM's plastic repair on it from college. I was also wearing a semi-worn out pair of blue jeans I got for $7 at goodwill. My ensemble was completed by a pair of Keens and a paint respirator. Woot. Lol.
