Day 26: Popular Notions?

It's day 26 of the 30 day challenge.  If you guys want another challenge leave me a comment.  Today's topic was popular notions.  I have no idea what a popular notion is.  I even tired to Google one and got nothing.  So I decided to do a bonus music share.  A few Friday's ago I posted a song by Olly Murs.  I've become even more obsessed with him if that is even possible.  You can preorder his album If You Didn't Know on iTunes now!  It comes out in September and I can't wait!  This song is called Oh My Goodness.  I've probably listened to it 20 times today.  I hope you guys like it!

Day 24: Favorite Vacation

It's day 24 of the 30 day challenge.  Today is about my favorite vacation.  I had been dying to go California and I got my chance the summer before my senior year of highschool.  I got selected to represent my state in a national youth program for technology.  So my sister and I headed to San Jose for 10 glorious days.  The best part of the trip was spending my 17th birthday in San Francisco.  We spent all day on Fisherman's Wharf. We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe, went to a wax museum, and shopped.  At the end of the day, my group threw a surprise party for me.  It was so much fun.

Day 21: Super Power

It's day 21 of the 30 day challenge.  Today is about super powers.  I had to choose just one, I'd pick being invisible.  I'm nosey at times and like to spy on people.  So if I had that power nobody would know.  The first thing I'd do is listen to people talk about me just to see if they really like me.

Day 20: Childhood Memories

It's day 20 of the 30 day blog challenge.  Only 10 days left, I can't believe it.  Today is all about 3 of my favorite childhood memories.  I had a pretty good childhood so picking only 3 was tough.  Here are my favorites.

1. When I was 4 or 5, I lived in an apartment with my mom and older sister.  My sister and I shared the same bedroom.  On Christmas that year my sister woke me up at 3 AM to see what Santa had brought us.  I got scared my mom would catch us so I stayed in my bed while she spied.  My mom did wake up but she wasn't mad.  We opened all our presents at 3 AM then went back to sleep.  It was the best Christmas ever!

2. My grandma watched my cousin and I when we were younger.  We are the same age.  We always wanted to buy from the ice cream truck but grandma always said no.  If we wanted ice cream we would have to eat what she had already bought.  So we came up with a plan, we were going to sell rocks to make our own money to but from the truck.  So we stole rocks from somebody's driveway, washed them off, and put them in bucket.  We started going door to door around the neighborhood until my grandma found out.  She got mad at us and bought the rest our rocks so we'd stop selling them.  We made $5 each.

3. I love my birthday.  On my 12th birthday, my mom told me I couldn't have a big party because we were too busy.  So I believed her.  On the weekend of my birthday my dad said he was taking me to lunch.  Instead it was a giant surprise party at the roller skating rink!  It was the best birthday ever!

Music Friday: The A Team

Hey everybody!  I love Music Friday's because I get to share with all of you.  Last week I was looking at the free downloads on iTunes.  I noticed a free song called The A Team by Ed Sheeran.  Now all I know about him is that One Direction love his music, so I downloaded it.  I fell in love with it right away.  I haven't listened to his whole album yet but I'm sure I will love it.  You can buy his album + on iTunes right now.  Enjoy!

Day 17: I Wish...

It's day 17 of the 30 day challenge.  Today is about what I wish I could be great at.  I've always wish I was a great singer.  I always wanted to be the next big popstar.  I'm very shy so that probably wouldn't happen.  I wrote a 10 year goal paper in 8th grade that said I'd have 3 Grammy's.  I like to dream big.  There's nothing wrong with dreaming big though.

Day 15: Animal You'd Be

It's day 15 of the 30 day blog challenge.  Sorry this post is so late it's been a crazy day.  Today's topic is what animal would you be for a day and why.  My all time favorite is an elephant.  I'd be an elephant for many reasons.  First it would be awesome to be bigger than everybody.  Second you could be in Africa which would be cool to see.  I just love elephants!



Before I start today's 30 day blog, I'm making an announcement.  If you read last weeks post about the new Justin Bieber album, I will still be reviewing it.  Unfortunately, my CD didn't come in the mail today.  Hopefully it will come tomorrow and then I'll put the review up ASAP for you guys.  I have heard clips of the album on iTunes and it sounds amazing!  Check back tomorrow!

Day 12: Best Concert

It's day 12 of the 30 day challenge.  Today's topic is about the best concert I've been to and why it was the best.  If you read my 20 facts blog then you know I've been to many concerts.  I couldn't pick just one, so I came up with a top 3.  I want to hear from you guys too so leave a comment telling me your best concert!

1. Justin Timberlake's Future Sex/Loveshow Tour:
I'm a HUGE Justin Timberlake fan.  When I heard he was coming to my area I was so excited.  I bought my tickets 6 months before the concert.  I was on the main floor so I got to the venue early.  I ended up in the 4th row which wasn't bad since the stage was round.  Somehow I ended up on the side of the stage and got invited into the VIP area by one of his personal bodyguards!  The VIP was part of the stage and I actually touched JT's foot!  It was soooo much fun.

2. Justin Bieber's My World Tour:
I love Bieber so it was no question that I was going to his concert.  It was my 21st birthday present to myself.  I can honestly say it was the loudest concert I'd ever been to.  My ears hurt for 2 days after.  I loved everything about that concert.  I definitely had Bieber Fever that night!

3. Taylor Swift Speak Now Tour:
I had only seen Taylor Swift live as an opening act.  My sister and I decided to go to this show because Speak Now is my favorite album.  It was the very first show of the tour and it was AMAZING!  I felt like I was watching a show on a theater stage.  I really enjoyed it.

Day 10: Embarrassing Moment

Today is day 10 of the 30 day challenge.  The topic today is my most embarrassing moment.  Everybody has an embarrassing story.  I have a few stories but I chose the one I felt was the best.  In high school I had a huge crush on one of the science teachers.  He looked exactly like Brett Favre, who I'm also in love with.  One day in my Physics class our teacher was sick so the teacher I had a crush on filled in.  Science has never been my favorite subject so I never really paid attention anyway.  The day he was filling in was on a lab day. The lab was dealing with electricity and if we weren't careful we could be electrocuted.  So I started doing the lab but I kept staring at the teacher.  Since I wasn't focused strictly on the lab, I had missed a step.  He was walking around to everybody's station to make sure we were doing it right.  Of course he walked by mine right when I had missed the step and he yelled at me in front of the whole class for not paying attention.  I was so embarrassed.  I still had a crush on him though.

Hair Chalking

I have been hearing about this trend for awhile now, so I decided to try it out.  Most blogs said to use soft pastels but I just used regular sidewalk chalk.  I used 4 different colors hot pink, green, purple, and blue.  The first step is to wet the chalk.  I used a paper cup and just dipped the chalk in it.  Then you just have fun and start coloring on your hair!  If you have darker hair like me, it takes awhile to show up.  The hot pink and green showed up really well.  Purple and blue showed up just not as bright.  I didn't have time to style my hair so I just put it in a pony tail.  I do plan on doing this again and actually style it.  I will take pictures next time I promise!


Day 8: 10 Songs

It's day 8 of the 30 day challenge.  Today is about 10 of your favorite songs and why you love them.  I love music so it will be tough to only choose 10.  I listen to music every single day because no matter what kind of a day you are having music will make it better.  Here is my list.  Share your favorites

  1. Drowning by Backstreet Boys-This is my most played song on iTunes.  It's very catchy and I loved it the first time I heard it.
  2. What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction-I immediately smile every time I hear this.  It has a great message plus I just love them.
  3. Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis-This was my ringtone for forever.  Her voice just makes you want to listen to this song over and over.  Everybody can relate to it.
  4. Our Song by Taylor Swift-This song is just so fun and catchy.  It made me love her music.
  5. One Less Lonely Girl by Justin Bieber-My all time favorite Bieber song.  It's so sweet and I love the video.
  6. Tik Tok by Ke$ha-This song brings out the party girl in everyone.  This was also my ringtone the summer it came out.  I love how care free she is.
  7. Thinking Of You by Katy Perry-I think this the best song she has ever done.  I love it!
  8. My Love by Justin Timberlake-This song has a great beat and I love him.
  9. Dance With Me Tonight by Olly Murs-This is my most recent favorite.  It sounds like a song from the 50's or 60's which is my favorite era.
  10. Who Says by Selena Gomez-I love the message of this song.  Every girl is beautiful no matter what anybody says.


Believe Comes Out In A Week!

If any of you are Justin Bieber fans like I am you are probably counting down the days until the new album comes out.  I preordered mine a month ago.  Since I ordered early I get the deluxe version of BELIEVE, a fan voted t-shirt, and a mosaic poster that includes pictures of the first 10,000 fans who preordered.  I will do a full review for you guys.  Let me know what you guys want to know or anything else you want me to review.

Day 7: Dream Job

Day 3: 5 Books

It's day 3 of the 30 day challenge.  Today is about 5 of my favorite books and why I love them.  I've always loved reading since I was a kid.  Now I use a Nook which is much better and easier than carrying books around.  Here are my 5 books that I love.

1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I first read this book in high school as a 10th grader.  Ever since then it has been my favorite.  I love all the meanings it has and all it represents.  Everybody should read this book.

2. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
What girl doesn't love Nicholas Sparks?  This is my favorite out of all his books that I've read so far.  I read this book every summer.  I love how it is about forgiveness and love.  Guarding your heart is not the way to go through life.

3. The Lying Game Series by Sara Shepard
I heard about this series from the ABC Family show.  If you enjoy the show then you will definitely love the books.  It is different than the show but still very good.  I've read all 3 books so far and I can't wait for the next one.  It's suspenseful yet a little romantic.

4. Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
This is my favorite author.  I also read this book in high school.  It is about intense issues but it is relatable to most young adults.  I liked that it deals with real issues and situations.

5. Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen
I read this after the movie was out.  It's much better than the movie, which most books are.  Elephants are my favorite animal so that's one reason I love it.  I also just love the era it was set in.

Day 2: 3 Fears

It's day 2 of the 30 day blog challenge.  Today's topic is describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.  Let's get to it!

1. Heights
I'm deathly afraid of heights and always have been.  I first realized it when I was 13 or 14.  I went to a concert and was sitting in the nose bleed section.  For some reason I looked straight down and almost fainted.

2. Spiders
I've been scared of spiders since I was a kid.  My older sister always scared me with those fake ones.  A few years ago I went camping, which I also hate.  The next day my arm was all red and infected from a spider bite. So now I am even more scared of them.

3. Tornado's
I'm not sure why I'm so scared of tornado's.  I slept through an actual one when I was little, so I think that's where it came from.
