oblig. so-much-time-has-passed post

It’s literally been forever and I forgot this was even still around. This has been the most eventful year of my life… A lot of things have happened that I never imagined could possibly happen to me. Mostly a mix of good and bad, nothing bad truly, but good things with bad aspects, if that makes any sense. I don’t want to go into detail at all, it was enough of a ride going through it all, but let’s just say it’s been an exciting and breath-taking several months with some moments of pain, but all in all here I am in one piece and for the most part happy about where I am. Of course there is always lots let to be desired… and I think it should be that way basically until you’re about done with life. 

I wish I’d never deleted my secret survey blog lol. I’ve always had a problem with sharing too much… I can’t help it, it’s like in my nature to share my life with those I care about, but then I think I share too much, and surveys were a good outlet for that. Spoiler: maybe I’ll start a new one. 

Who am I even talking to? Idk. But happy Thanksgiving anyway.






gg life – nothing makes more sense


they’re back

When’s the last time you ran?
lol @ running

Do your jeans have rips, tears, and holes in them?
Nah, I threw out all the ones that were ripped.

What are you dreading right now?
Just the remainder of my finals and the final paper I have to write this weekend -_-

Do you celebrate 4 / 20?

Do you get the full 8 hours of sleep a night?
Not these days, that’s for damn sure. But I do typically.

If anyone came to your house on your “lazy days”, what would ya’ll do?
It’s actually “y’all” because it’s “you all.” And, probably just chill on a couch or my bed and eat. I don’t really have people over to my house that often though.

Who last grabbed your ass?
Le M.

Have you ever been on your school’s track team?

Do you own a pair of Converse?
I do, like at least four but I never wear them.

Do you eat raw cookie dough?
Sure, after spooning them onto the cookie sheet I’ll have what’s left on the spoon. Oh and also any other time.

Have you ever kicked a vending machine?

Don’t you hate it when the radio ruins good songs by playing them over and over?
I just switch the station.

Do you watch South Park?
No. Do they still make it? I used to be pretty into it, even watched through a few seasons on Netflix.

How do you eat Oreo’s?
The same way as everyone else? Twist em. Oh and if they’re the original then I soak it in milk until it’s soggy. And delicious.

Are you cocky?
Sometimes, but only jokingly / ironically (secretly not really).

Could you live without a computer?
You shut your mouth.

Do you wear your shoes in the house?
Ummm, lately yes because I’m lazy + it’s cold + I put a shoe rack in my room so I keep all my shoes upstairs anyway. But my mom gets mad when I walk upstairs with my shoes on.

Who would you call first if you won the lottery?
My mom.

Last time you saw your best friend?
Idk but it’s been a while.

Are you in high school?
Thankfully not anymore haha.

Is anyone on your bad side now?

What’s the first thing you do when you get online?
I usually check my feed and open my email simultaneously.

Do you watch Grey’s Anatomy?
I do but I’m a couple episodes behind.

How do most people spell your name?
Uh, often with an H at the end. Or if you’re a Starbucks barista, “Lean,” “Mya,” “Lee-ann,” etc. Oh, and if you’re a particularly challenged cashier at Rubio’s, I’ve gotten “Bolerla” which I actually found quite laughable.

Would you wear a boy/girlfriends clothes?
Boys’ sweaters 4evr. Ugh call the firing squad.

What are you doing tomorrow?
Waking up at 8 probably, finishing my Psycho analysis essay. Going downtown early for lunch with Mike, then following that meeting up with someone to sell a textbook (sweet!), printing said essay, then heading to my film final.

Favorite name for a girl?
I have a lot of names I like and I even store them away on a super secret, embarrassingly long list that I currently use exclusively for naming Sims characters (first, middle, and last) and will one day use for my own children and anyway leave me alone.

Favorite name for a boy?
See above.

Do you return your cart?
More often than not, yes.

Do you have a dishwasher?
Yeah but we never use it. Only when there’s like a party and even my mom is like, ‘yeah that’s too many to make you wash by hand.’

What noise do you hear?
The fan of my laptop of course. I just turned off the music a little while ago so I could actually focus on writing my essay because I was getting distracted by the throwback playlist (I was singing along).

Would you survive in prison?
Not for a day.

If all of your friends were going on a road trip, who would most likely over pack?
Thi. Which is good because I severely underpack and she compensates.

Do you know anyone with the same name as you?

What brand are your pants right now?
St. John’s Bay. I just actually maneuvered awkwardly to check the tag on the back of my pj pants for you because the band says SJB and I was like, wtf is that. You’re welcome.

Do you own expensive perfume/cologne?
What is expensive when it comes to perfume? Like do I have designer perfume? Then I guess so.

Are you taking college classes right now?
Uh yes.

Do you like sushi?

Do you get your hair cut every month?
No but I am so annoyed that I need to get it cut again so soon. I want to keep it short for a while!

Do you go online everyday?
