Mundane Monday: Stupid Stunts

When I was growing up, I was taught it’s rude to laugh at someone else’s expense. I still agree with that, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t laugh at people’s expense. However, I only laugh when it’s on TV.

If I see someone in person hurt themselves, my first thought will be “Are you okay?” But when I watch shows like truTV’s World’s Dumbest, Top 20 Funniest, and Most Shocking, I laugh my head off at the stunts and blunders people do. I find the stunts a bit funnier because they’re done on purpose. Unless someone gets seriously hurt, it’s almost always funny.

I also figure if they submit the clips to the show, the people in the clips must’ve eventually found it funny too. I wouldn’t submit something if I was still sore about it.

This isn’t from either of the shows I mentioned above, but it’s a compilation of clips where people have hurt themselves. Hopefully, no one was seriously hurt, or I feel bad for laughing!

Wishful Wednesday: No More Snow!

My wish for this Wednesday is a very simple one: no more snowstorms!

I like snow, but the snow throughout the town is ice. There are icy snow mounds everywhere. I’m happy for the students who get a day off school, but I’ve had it with all of these snowstorms. This is not flippin’ Alaska!!

I absolutely cannot wait for winter to finally end! I need spring!

Mundane Monday: Thanks, Android!

I’ve expressed my gratitude for technology before, but today, I want to talk about how I appreciative I am for a particular piece: my smartphone.

I have an Android smartphone, so instead of the App Store, I have Google Play. Since it’s small (but not too small) and portable, it’s very convenient. I don’t have to turn on my laptop to only look up a bit of information or check a forum. If I’m tired, but not yet ready to go to sleep or I can’t fall asleep, I can easily browse the web until I do and put the phone aside when I finally feel myself drifting off.

Of course, there’s all the apps. Google Play does have a very good selection. My favorite app game to date is Star Girl and I was so happy when I saw they had it. In fact, they have every app I used when I had my school’s iPad. Twitter, Gmail, YouTube, Chase, and diary apps, my fave! Gotta love the diaries!

Having a smartphone also lets me keep personal info like PIN numbers on hand in case I forget. I’ve never forgotten a PIN, but you never know. I keep a lot of little tidbits of information, like addresses and plans. And since I can lock my phone, I know no one else can get in. I never leave it alone to begin with, but locking it just makes me feel better.

Wishful Wednesday: Hurry Out, February!

Usually, I’m in no rush for even a day to end unless it’s a bad one, but for this Wednesday, my wish is for February to hurry up and get out!

The reason is there are some things I have planned for March, when spring arrives and the weather begins to become warm. My plans probably won’t start at the very beginning of March, but I think they’ll start fairly early.

I mentioned him already, but Emmi is a part of those plans. I said I wanted to meet up when temperature rises because it’s just too cold right now.

I’m planning to do a little clothes shopping, but online instead of in a store. I found some pretty, floral, one-shoulder shirts on eBay. I’ve never been able to find one-shoulder shirts. Never seen them in any store I ever went to.

Finally, there’s a special gift I’m planning to buy. In fact, that’s the first thing I want to do. I won’t say what it is, but I am so excited about it, especially because I’m paying for it entirely. No one is helping me, so no one can complain.

I am so excited for March to come, I feel ready to burst! Honestly, I really feel like this year will be a good one. Hurry up, March!

Mundane Monday: Springtime

Yes, the segments are back. The topic for MM this Monday?

Beautiful

My favorite season: spring!

I love spring! It’s my most favorite season of the year, even more so than summer (my 2nd fave because of school break). Spring has been my favorite season since I was a small child. I can’t remember it ever not being my fave.

Why do I love spring so much? Quite a few reasons:

  • It’s my birth season. Enough said there! I was born in mid-spring/late April.
  • It’s the most beautiful season.
  • It’s all about flowers. Cliché as it is, flowers will win me over any day! It’s second only to chocolate.
  • Although Valentine’s Day is in winter, love is more associated with spring. Love and nature. Is there anything more beautiful than that?
  • It’s the season that matches my preference of floral clothing. Summer goes well too, but spring just feels better. Spring matches glitter as well.
  • It’s the most relaxing season. Summer is too hot, winter is too cold, and autumn is cool and crisp, but school is beginning to start. Spring is when I’m more than halfway through and can goof off for a bit since I have a better idea of where I stand.
  • Easter is in spring! Easter=rabbits! It’s my season to wear bunny ears!
