blonde.

I’m blonde.  And yeah, it great.  My golden locks shine in the sunlight and blow through the wind.

But it also sucks.

Like ready bad.

Terribly.

The amount of times that I hear jokes about blondes being more fun, or slutty, or stupid.  My classmates, friends and even television shows or youtube videos.  It makes me fell terrible about myself, even though it is a hair colour, and something that I was born with.

‘Stupid blonde.’

‘I thought you were supposed to be fun.’

‘Hey blondie.’

Television;

Why are the mean girls always blonde?

Why is the stupid friend always blond?

And most importantly,

Why are the smart, respectable girls, NEVER blonde?

5 Reasons Why I’m Scared to Become an Adult

Hey guys!  So today I’m going to be bringing you a few reasons why I’m terrified to become an adult.  If some 13 going on 30 stuff happened to me I would not survive.  Lets get into this post.

 

5 Reason Why I’m Scared to Become an Adult

 

1.)  I would buy everything

This is probably one of the main reasons why I can’t be an adult because I would just buy everything I see while online shopping, or even just going around in the grocery store, because I have absolutely no will power. 

 

2.)  Cooking?

Let me tell you.  I have not been blessed with the gift of cooking.  I mean I=its not my strong suit, or my suit at all.  So can you say “Take out?”

 

3.)  Bills

I’ll be to busy spending all my money on useless stuff that I’ll use once to pay my bills. So lets just leave it on that for the whole “Bills” subject.

 

4.)  Pets

I’m a huge animal lover and if I had a pet I would either accidentally let them out and it would run away or I would forget to feed it

 

5.)  I’m just not at all street smart

I’m the type of person who would let some random person from the streets into my house, so ya, #PrayForMaddie2017

 

Thanks for reading guys.  I’m going to be trying to post more often because I haven’t post in about half a month.  Hope you enjoyed reading this and I’ll talk to you all next time!

Weird Candy Cane Flavors

Hey guys, it’s Maddie and today is Christmas Eve Eve!  So exciting!  So for the tenth day of this wonder series, 12 Days of My Obscure Christmas, I’m give you some weird candy cane flavors, and your going to get try them, lets go.

Weird Candy Cane Flavors

 

1.)  Gravy Flavored

As a one of the only humans on earth who hates gravy I must say I’m would not be excited for these canes, but they are sure to fill the heart of the special gravy loving person  in your life.

 

2.)  Pickle Flavored

This flavor is everywhere this Christmas season.  I am not a huge fan of pickles but I predict that if you are then you’ll love this weird flavor.

 

3.)  Life Saver Flavored

Now these ones aren’t even that weird but I just felt the need to include them because, hello, Life Saver flavored candy canes?  Um… Sign me up please!

 

4.)  Bacon Flavored

I would just like you all to know that I’m Canadian.  And not to be stereotypical, but I like my bacon no matter how its cooked.  Now seeing that I live on an island, and I can’t get them here, it’s your duty to get them and eat them on my behalf, okay?

 

5.)  Oreo Flavored

Oreo’s are one of the best things in this world, so for some amazing person who one day though “Hey, lets screw some crap up and make a Oreo flavored candy cane this Christmas”  Bless your soul.  That’s all I’m saying on the subject.

 

6.)  Cinnabon Flavor

There’s nothing left to say other than, thank you to who ever made this.

 

So that’s it for today guys.  I hope you can try some of these awesome yet weird flavors.  I knoe I would if I could.  Talk to you guys later!  Bye!
