Never Have I Ever

It's been a while since I've done a post "introducing" myself. If you want the basic facts you can always head over and find out more about the girl behind the blog, but I prefer to share the types of things that would make us winners on a game show. Not to mention, it's Wednesday...

Last fall I decided to make a conscious effort to do and experience more. Thanks to my 101 in 1001 list I can keep track of these accomplishments when I do them. This led me to thinking about other things I've never done.



... been on a blind date. Nope, it's never happened.

... left the east coast. I'm hoping to change this when I finally make my way to Vegas.

... worn a size smaller than a 9/10. Don't for one second think I'm mad about this. What can I say? These hips don't lie.

Who am I kidding. I wish they moved like this. 

... broken a bone. Let's just keep it that way shall we?

... been to a basketball game. Previously this read "I'm not sorry about this. I dislike basketball even more than baseball if that's at all possible." We all know this is now a lie. #6

... had lice. I'm just lucky like that.

... been fired from a job. My professional track record, although not glamorous at all times, thanks Tractor Supply Co., it's clean!

... been out of the contiguous states. This seriously bothers me. I'm almost 30 and I've never even been to Mexico... or Canada? #fail.

...ran a marathon. Are we really surprised by this? Wait, does a 5k count? If so, then I've done 1... which would make me a liar.

...been arrested. Life win.


Now - what's something you've never done??

Who Says That

One of my biggest pet peeves is being asked stupid questions. That saying about there being no such thing as a stupid question? It was most likely made up by someone having to justify the questions they were asked everyday, you know, so they didn't go into a rage. Me? Rage on.

Here's a list of 6 questions that will guarantee I give you the stink face while judging the shit out of you for being such an asshat.


Is that a perm?

I don't know... does it look like a perm.....

Did your parents want a boy?
It's no secret that my name is awesome Michael. Which is awesome. I personally love my name. We go together like Mac and Cheese and I wouldn't have it any other way. My mom liked the name and that's what she decided.


Would you ever change your name?
Umm, to what? Melissa, Kelly, Jessica, Nicole - No thanks. I am none of those and they don't fit me. (No offense if that's your name :)




You're a little behind aren't you? (In reference to (at the time) being 25, single, unmarried and no kids)
How about I just punch you in the face now? One, who says that to someone? And two, hell no I'm not behind. Here we are 4.75 years later and the only thing that's changed is I'm no longer single.... and I kind of want to be married.


Will there be booze?
What kind of question is this?? No really, who asks this?


 You want to go to the beach?
Anyone who knows me, or has read this blog for more than a month, knows that I'm in love with summer. I'm a sun sponge and make no secret that I would rather be on a beach than anywhere else.

How to Know You're an Adult

Way back when I read a post about why being an adult is better than being a kid. Although she raises valid points, being an adult sometimes sneaks up on you, and it made me start thinking about the not so obvious, or fun, signs that you've become an adult. I had a few of my own but reached out to you guys for opinions as well.


You can no longer go to bed late and wake up early.

You need the extra day after a night of drinking.

Kat: You have ever used the phrase "tax deduction".

Allyssa: Going to the DMV and hearing about kids passing their road tests.

Sara: A "house party" is now a gathering of women buying makeup/purses or someone just bought a house.

Flix: You are around teens and need to resist the urge to "teach them something".


Erin: You get excited when someone cancels on your plans after work because that means you can go sit your ass on the couch and veg. I'm so guilty of this.

Sara: Laundry

Jessica: You ask for appliances for Christmas. In my opinion asking for appliances is ok. Yay for not haing to buy a new microwave myself.  It's NOT ok when you receive an appliance from a boyfriend.
If I'm being truthful, I'm guilty of all of these things and yet I still don't feel like an adult. You know what they say: Age is just a number!
