Corporations and Friends

Hello there! Sheesh I haven’t updated in a while. Lots of fun happenings to talk about! Firstly, me and my friends went to DC :)

 

I’m in the yellow at the end and yes, I am a fat cow. Thank you for noticing. Anyway, we had a blast! Riding bicycles through DC, going to an awesome amusement park and riding the tallest roller coaster in the country, hanging out in our hotel room playing Apples to Apples was by far my most favorite part of the trip though. I love my friends <3

As for the coporations part of this post, I got a job! At McDonalds…woo. It’s not that bad, though the managers are beginning to piss me off with their favoritism, but I think that happens in most work places so I supposed I should get used to it. I really like the actual job aspect of it though. I cannot wait to get back to school though, it is so much better than having a real job.

Ponies!

So I am kind of obsessed with the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I know, I know, weird, creepy, etc. But it’s not like that whatsoever. It’s just a cartoon that I thoroughly enjoy. It reminds me so very much of the cartoons that I loved as a kid, and makes me feel like a kid again. It’s creator, Lauren Faust, worked on Powerpuff Girls, a show I loved as a child too, so that might have something to do with it.

The show puts in morals, and fun, and makes it interesting and funny. The characters are awesome, and send a good message (mostly, I’ll touch on that in a bit). All of the mane cast consist of girls with different personalities, but defy their personalities stereotypes. Rarity, a seemingly “stuck-up” pony, is very generous, just finicky. Rainbow Dash, a very competitive pony, is also very loyal to her friends. All of the ponies have similar personalities, trying to defy stereotypes. Even though the show is about girls, with few male cast, it doesn’t feel girly. The colors/look is “girly”, but the story lines and characters are definitely not. The morals the show is mainly about are usually good, but sometimes I think they push the wrong message.

An example of this is “Feeling Pinkie Keen”, which moral is essentially “Just believe in things you might not have evidence for”, which sounds very much like telling kids they should believe in God, which isn’t something I think you should push on kids. But it’s a minor grief with an otherwise awesome show.

Another thing I love about the show is the community. Ponychan, a chan about ponies obviously. The community there is amazing, and I love the people. They’re nice and calm and just something you don’t expect from an online community.

Overall I think the show is doing some great things, and it’s starting an awesome online community and lots of awesome internet-y stuff. I love it.

New Look!

I updated my blog theme, and made the header and background myself. I really hate using a “Pre-made” theme scheme, but I’m not that skilled with Photoshop. I still think it looks nice, though, and I hope you like it too!

Dorm Living

Soon enough I will be living in a dorm, at a small college in Virginia. Besides freaking out about everything (which you will find I have a tendency to do…) I have been worrying about how to eat sort of healthy. I really need to lose some weight, which is slightly difficult under my parents roof. But doing this in a dorm will prove tricky, I’m afraid. I’m not going to deprive myself of the occasional cookie, but I will try my hardest to eat veggies and fruits and chicken and whatever healthy stuff I can whip up with just a microwave at my disposal. I’ve been researching a bit, and saving every microwavable food item I find to my stumbleupon account. Today I happened to find Cheesecake in a Mug. Even though I can make cheesecake with the no-bake stuff from Jello, I really prefer to make things from scratch.

Doesn’t that look delish? http://www.2stews.com/2009/09/cheesecake-in-mug.html Here’s the link. I haven’t tried it yet, but I will whenever I have all the ingredients. And yes, I was just talking about health food and then switched to cheesecake. Don’t judge me. I can cheat every now and then, okay!

I’ve made eggs in the microwave before, with pretty decent results. I love sunny-side up eggs though, and I’m not really sure how I would go about making those in a microwave, but I guess I’ll have plenty of time to experiment!

the first post

I suppose every blog has to start somewhere, right? Well this is mine. I’m a teenage girl and it’s summer time. My writing might bore you but I really don’t care, no one’s forcing you to read this.

Right now I am extremely hot, because the air conditioning in my house is terrible.

Currently most of my days are spent chatting with my boyfriend, surfing the intertubes, and playing video games. I should get a job, but I only have two months left so I’m blah on that idea. Pretty addicted to Modern Warfare 2 right now, and I think I’m finally starting to get better at it.

I really like to read baby blogs for some reason. Probably just because babies are utterly adorable.  

This little girl right here? She’s adorable. Her dad writes one of my favorite blogs. I hope my kids are half as cute ;)

Oh, and my name is Beth, nickname is Beffy.
