Do you want Hi-C or Hi-C?

Yesterday, I went to Wendy's during my lunch break. I got a happy meal with chicken nuggets and asked for some Hi-C for the drink. The girl taking my order at the drive through asked me if I wanted Hi-C or Hi-C... Umm... Hi-C will be fine. When I get to the pick up window, I see that my drink is brown. Great. Rootbeer. Just what I wanted. Not. Oh well. I went to a nearby park to eat my grub. It was super hot so I grabbed my drink to get a big gulp. I was slightly nervous because what if my drink wasn't rootbeer? It could have been Pepsi or Coke or something like that, and I don't drink caffiene so I wouldn't have a drink if it wasn't rootbeer. As soon as the liquid went up the straw and hit my tongue I was repulsed! This was the sickest thing I had ever tried to drink! It wasn't Pepsi, Coke or even rootbeer. It wasn't sweet. It was super bitter and watered down. I dumped all of it out in the parking lot. I could not figure out what in the heck it was!! I thought maybe the soda machine was broken and the drink wasn't mixed correctly? What other drink even sounded like Hi-C? Why had they asked me twice? I was SO confused. I rummaged through the bag to check for a receipt to see what they put down for my drink. No luck, there was no receipt. I went back to work and thought about it for the next hour and a half and could not wrap my head around it. Then on my drive home, I thought even harder. It was super bitter, not sweet, and watered down. Rhymes with Hi-C....

ICED TEA!!! I started laughing so hard to myself when I realized what it was. So funny. I can't believe people actually drink it. It was DISGUSTING. Maybe it's better if you aren't expecting super sugary rootbeer. Who knows. But my lesson has been learned, I will never drink iced tea again, and I will be a lot clearer when I order at Wendy's.

That's right. Seven minutes.

Shampoo. Condition. Scrubby-Dub-Dub. Shave. Wash face. Boom. Seven minutes.

I pride myself in this.

P.S. Isn't this shower head awesome? I want one.

In the past 3 days I have killed over 15 spiders. That is DISGUSTING. Needless to say, I will be taking a trip to Costco today to get some Ortho Home Defense Spray. Woohoo. I have to acknowledge that my fear has died a little bit, after killing so many. At first when I saw one I would scream and get as far away from it as possible. One time I was brushing my teeth and Jared was in my room so I came in and I saw a spider by my bed. So I tried to scream and tell Jared to get it. Which sounded a lot like "MMMMHEHMMMG MMAGMGHME!" With a mouth full of spit and a toothbrush. Jared was laughing pretty hard. Oh- and I still killed that spider. Then I changed to thinking "OK OK OK, I'm OK!" and then I would get some spray to hopefully kill it or at least slow it down. Now when I see one, in my head I say "Oh HECK no!" and then I get the trusty flip flop and smash it. So, I've made some good progress I must say. But I'm sick of having to vacuum them up or clean them up 5 times a day. It's sick. So Ortho Home Defense here I come!

P.S. I was gonna put up a picture of a spider. But then google imaging that was way too sick. It freaked me out.

Traveling the World

I LOVE to travel. Now, if only I actually did it more. Don't get me wrong, I have been to some pretty cool places. Like such as: HAWAII, New York, San Fran. But, as of lately I've been dying to travel more. There is so much in this world to experience and here are a few of the places that I hope to someday visit.

In no particular order:

Paris, France. Walking around. Eating pastries. Visiting the Louvre.

The Vatican, Rome, Italy. ART ART ART! I would love to walk around all the cathedrals and see the sculptures, the paintings and the architecture.

Let's be honest. Anywhere in Europe. But mostly Paris and Rome.

Moving to another continent...

New Zealand. I don't want to be in a modern part of the country. I want to go somewhere that still has villages and tribes and awesome culture. And the haka. What?
The New Zealand village at the Polynesian Cultural Center spoke to me haha. The music, the dances, the culture. I loved it.

And now for America...

North Carolina. Great beaches. Green green green trees surrounding the roads.

Washington D.C. The Smithsonian. The Capital. Everything American History. So interesting.

Maine. East Coast. Beach house. Lighthouses. Trying to like seafood because it's fresh. Shopping in little towns. Relaxing.

Seattle, Washington. Pike Place Market. Walking around all the shops.

Harry Potter Land. Universal Studios, Florida. My dream come true. Need I say more?

Disneyland. Anaheim, California. I know that everyone says it's not all it's cracked up to be. But I'm 21 years old, and I just want to experience it one day. Being surrounded by everything Disney. Ah.

And last, but not least...

The Bahamas. Clear, blue waters. White sand beaches. Swimming with dolphins. Laying out. Gorgeous.

Well, that's all I can think of for right now. Who knows if I'll ever go to any of these places, but hey, a girl can dream.
