Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentines Day, everyone!

This is one of my favorite days of the year (although not as much this year since it’s on a Tuesday and I have to do schoolwork so… :P) because it’s such a wonderful time and I LOVE love!

Also, you get to eat chocolate and watch romcoms (although not really the romcoms if you’re my age and you can’t watch anything that was rated above 15 years old on Common Sense Media) which is pretty cool.

I am currently single (which is fairly normal for a homeschooled 13 year old) but I have an amazing family and fantastic friends, so it’s not like I’m ALONE. 😛

I actually have a minor cold right now, so that’s not cool, but hey, I’m able to eat chocolate and I’m not sick enough to where I can’t walk.

Anyways, I was curious, what do you guys do on Valentine’s Day? Do you hang out with your BF or GF? Do you spend time with friends? Or do you enjoy curling up in bed with Netflix and literally all of the chocolate that you can stuff in your face? <—- ME

Let me know how you celebrate Valentine’s Day in the comments!

Lots of love!

30 Day, Gallon A Day Water Challenge

Hello everyone!

I first wanted to say that I got NO name suggestions on my last post. RAEGKAFGKDGKADGM.

Lol, it’s okay. But I just wanted to ask you to please check out my last post and suggest some names. Thanks!

Now, onto the important stuff:

Today I started the 30 Day Water Challenge, which is basically where you drink a gallon of water every day for thirty days.

Needless to say, it definitely IS a challenge.

I have a 24 ounce water bottle and I had to fill it up FIVE times to get to 120 ounces (which is 8 ounces less than a gallon, so I’m kind of cheating a little, but…. uh… yeah.

So, I’ve heard it gets easier after a while, but it is a struggle at first. You kind of start hating the taste of water just because it’s so bland, and if you’re like me, your stomach wants to do that thing where the water jiggles around in your stomach. I ate a lot less dinner tonight, which is actually a good thing, because I snack a lot.

Let me just list the pros and cons to this challenge:

PROS –

It’s supposed to keep you energized all day

It’s supposed to help you wake up easier and happier

It helps to flush out toxins

It helps you lose weight

It helps you be sure of when you are REALLY hungry and not just bored

It’s supposed to help clear up your acne and give you more glowy skin

It might stimulate hair and nail growth.

 

CONS –

It can be really filling, which makes it hard to continue

You have to pee a LOT

If you do not have a gallon or half gallon bottle, you have to refill a LOT

 

The pros DEFINITELY outweigh the cons. Although, there were at least three times today where I had to pee multiple times within 40 minutes of each other, so that was not cool. So, I’ve used the bathrooms countless times, by the last bottle I was starting to hate water, and it was a very slight nuisance to have to refill it, but I usually did it when I was getting up anyways.

I have had no immediate effects, but I will see if I wake up better and stay more energized tomorrow (I don’t know if that is an instant effect) and see how my skin looks.

Have you guys done this challenge or will you attempt to do it? Let me know in the comments below!

Have a WATERful day! (I know, I know. Super cheesy)

Blog name change?

Hi guys.

So, I was kind of thinking. Maybe it’s time to change the name of my blog. I just kind of feel like “Miss Magic’s Memoir” is… I don’t know what it is. Maybe I’m sick of it or maybe I’ve grown out of it. I have no idea.

I don’t know if I am going to change it or when that will be if I do, but I would like your help coming up with new names for the blog. I would like it to be fairly short and snappy. I obviously like alliteration 😛 And my blog doesn’t really have a purpose right now. It’s kind of just… my personal rambles.

Thank you guys so much for your help! I want to say thank you to the people who actually ready my blog. I may have 50 followers, but if you’re reading this you’re one of the few who are true followers, so I thank you for that.

Hello… it’s me…

^^^^^^ Yes, I just quoted an Adele song, don’t judge me.

Well, I’m back.

I haven’t posted since… since a couple months before Summer began…

I apologize.

I do.

I’m not sure exactly why I didn’t post. It might have been because I was lazy and just wanted to be a couch potato all Summer.

Or maybe because I did my first Summer camp and I got super distracted.

After a while it just seemed kind of… hard to come back. It’s like, will anyone respond? Will I enjoy it as much as I used to?

But here is what I am going to do.

This is my blog. MY blog (I hope that doesn’t sound conceited). I’m not going to be as strict with myself anymore about posting. If I want to, I will. I won’t feel bad if I start something and don’t finish it, because this blog is an experiment. This whole thing is an experiment.

And it’s one of the fun kinds where things can explode and you can end up with baking soda and vinegar everywhere.

In a good way.

What I’m saying is, I make the rules on here. So, if I want to post six posts in one day, leaving me with nothing for the rest of the week, I’ll do it.

If I don’t post for a month, oh well, I’ll see you guys again soon. I know I will.

This blog is for me to express myself. It’s kind of my outlet for anything.

You know that store that you love that has literally anything and everything? It might be a Bed, Bath and Beyond, or a Target, or a Walmart, or even the Dollar Store.

This is that store. It has anything and everything. It might go out of stock once in a while, or be shut down due to “Unknown reasons”, but it will be back. With big sales to draw you in. Or maybe it’ll stay nice and quiet, just how you like it.

But it might change. They might have painted the walls, replaced the tile with hardwood flooring, or even changed the name. But it’s the same store. Run by the same people. With all of the same merchandise.

So, welcome back to Miss Magic’s Memoir.

LET’S DO THIS!!

*cue battle music and explosions*
