Painting Punishment

I’m back in action. Sorry I’ve been grounded lately. My parents have been making serve my punishment by helping out one of our neighbors Billy. Lucky for me I didn’t have to do too much, but I did have to freaking take care of a ton of paper work for him. Just filing and stuff like that.

This worked out for my parents because now they get to have our house painted by the man. Glad I could be of use for my family. Sorry If this seems a bit boring, but I am going to tell you about my story from this week helping Billy Faulkner Painting Services.

It was a rainy Friday night and all the kids (my friends) were going out. You’ll never believe what I got to do…

Sit at home.

Yeah that’s right, I didn’t get to do one thing on a Friday freaking night. Ridiculous, I know. Be sure to tell my parent’s that next time you see them.

Who doesn’t let their 18 year old daughter go out on a Friday night? I have my own car, it’s not like they had to drive me!! Grrr.

Anyways, I wasn’t feeling the whole stay at home while everyone went out, especially when the weather was a beautiful as it has been. So what did I do?

I became a bit of a rebel.

I snuck out of my house as soon as my parents went to sleep, or so I had thought. I later came to find out that they were in fact not asleep at all. In fact, they were testing me…Testing to see if I was grown up enough to stay at home I guess? Idk. Long story short they caught me, I actually didn’t even make it 20 steps outside my window until they caught me. BTW why do we need door sensors anyways? They really screwed me over this time.

Anyways, they caught me stone cold. I was about to hop in my friend’s car (I won’t say who just in case they are reading this) and then boom my creepy, night hawk like dad jumps out and says where are you going?

STONE COLD busted!!!My friend sped off and I had a long night of getting the ol speech from the parents for a good hour or so.

“You aren’t ready for college”

“Grown-ups don’t lie to the ones they love”

Blah Blah the same spill I get every time. Except this time they tagged on a little more discipline to their arsenal…

Slavery for a painting company in the biggest city in Tejas.. Yes I’m talking about Dallas.

And man o man Billy is a busy guy. The amount of paper work I shuffled through for him this past week has been nuts.

Lucky for him, I got him caught up with where he is at today and made him a better filing system to help him stay organized in the future (so I don’t have to come in and do it again!! Lol)

So that’s where I’ve been the past week. Filing papers, with no access to any of my electronics, not even my phone..What the heck. How is a kid supposed to survive without a freaking phone?

I guess I did survive but it wasn’t pretty. I made it, just barely. Lucky for you guys I finally got time to write this new blog J..

Leave me some comments guys!! Was I stupid for doing this?

Life Decisions

blog 3

Time is creeping up on me. Ever had that feeling where everything is moving so fast around you and you feel like you can’t stop it? You have all these decisions and big plans that you need to set but it’s nearly impossible due to the full schedule you have.

Choose a college.

Have a degree plan you want to pursue.

Do you want to keep a bf in college?

Yeah so most of my stresses in today’s world have included my college decisions mainly. I have been accepted into SMU, Texas A&M and UT.

Quite a selection but the problem is I won’t be getting any scholarships so in order to attend I will be taking out school loans and taking on a huge amount of debt.

The word debt in its self stresses me out. We all pursue a degree to learn a ton of college knowledge but in the meantime we are taking on such a financial burden.

Sure it may be an easy choice for athletes or really intelligent people but what about for everyone else?

Are we supposed to take on $50K-$100K of debt just to graduate from a great school and then to be hopeful to find a job and slave for someone our entire life? This is a hard pill for me to swallow lately.

We are all like a pet mouse running on the spinning wheel in a cage every day. Trying to replicate the same lives our parents live and constantly trying to make them proud. My question is, when is enough enough? When do we do what we want to do? When do we go out and find a new way to make things happen?

I’m not sure but I believe any great leader didn’t follow that path. They created a new path and had others follow them. They started a new trend and took on other great leaders. Pushing them to their furthest extent and in return creating something unreal that changes the world.

Can anyone change the world?

I don’t see why the heck not. At the end of the day we all put our britches on the same way in the morning don’t we? We all were created equal, so why do all fall into the 8-5 daily work routine?

I’m personally thinking about taking on a new route. Not sure how or when I am going to do this but I want it to happen soon. I want to be extraordinary, and to change the world. I want to create my own business and create something that nobody has ever done before.

My parents may not accept this but I know I will be happy doing what I want to do. I don’t want to take on such a heavy burden of all that debt. I want to create an income for myself vs. pay someone to help their business or foundation.

Take the challenge with me.

Let’s be something different.

Do you want to be a freaking mouse in a cage or a lion out in the jungle doing his own thing and living a worry free life?

Let’s be kings of the jungle and develop the next best thing. Let’s change the world. Let’s start today!!!

Join me in my next quest. Leave a comment if this sparked anything inside you.

Prom Prom Prom

Its that time again. This will be my third time going!! I’m not one to brag but doesn’t that make me cool? Kidding, tbh I wouldn’t really want that for anyone. Think about everything you gotta do.

Find a dress.

Get your makeup did up.

Fix your nails and toes.

Find someone to do your hair.

Form a group to roll around in the limo prior to the prom and after.

Find a date (this is harder for most).

The list goes on and on and on but that list alone is enough to cause anyone a headache!! This also includes more money spent by my lovely parents. Oh, I’m sure they absolutely love that I keep getting asked to go to the big ol shendig.

This leads me to my next point. MY DATE…

I know most may wonder, how did he ask? And for most girls guys create the most creative ways to ask like these here. Luckily for me mine was just as awesome, and it completely threw me off guard!!

Here’s how it went down..

Considering that I am on the drill team, we always perform for the school during all of the different pep rallies. We started a routine for everyone to see. We were having a blast and I was excited how well I was doing in my routine.

Until

Everyone started doing different movements than ME!!! A Million thoughts start running threw my mind.

Embarrassing.

Uh Oh

I swear I had this right

Are you sure you guys are doing the right dance

I was completely off and it was so embarrassing. Then out of nowhere Jake pops out of nowhere and has a group of his teammates in the stands with painted bodies spelling out the words. M-A-R-Y G-O T-O P-R-O-M-W-I-T-H-M-E-?

I was blown away and completely surprised. It was by far the best proposal I have seen in person (for prom that is).

And it definitely was the best one that has ever happened to me. Wow Wow Wow..It was amazing and it was with the best guy I could ask for.

Skipping ahead now let’s talk about the actual Prom

It was AWESOME! Our school was able to rent out a floor of a huge building in Downtown Dallas. We show up (in style I might add, had a bomb limo) and they have everything. Photobooths, the best food, awesome music, extravagent lights, you name it this place had it.

I danced my tush off with the cutest guy in the school and it was an awesome night.

This doesn’t even include after the dance! Our parents arranged us to ride with our very own personal chauffeur all throughout Dallas. What a freaking time it was.

It blew all other proms out of the park. Idk if it was because it was my senior year prom or because it truly was?

Just everything from my date, to his proposal to the limo and the awesome venue that our HS put on for us. I couldn’t have asked for more out of the big day.

Check out our group and the limo (or the backend of it at least haha. Photo courtesy of Rowlett VIP Limo. Sunny you are the man!! He gave us the best time possible.

That’s all I have for now. Maybe I’ll upload some more pics in the next week or so, but I’m not too sure about that haha. Leave me some comments!
