 My Personal Blog

 

Important Info (please read)

     Hey! So, my name is Taylor-Ann (rolyatann) and here is my informal welcome to you from me. Welcome to my Personal Blog! This is going to be a place for me to write about my daily life. I'll be trying to make a new part in this blog every day, but it definitely is not gauranteed because I am in school, have a job, loads of homework, and have weekly club and sports practices/meetings (along with having a personal life).

     Aside from my daily/weekly activities, I will also be including my random and weird thoughts, and short poet and story snippets. Also aside from my daily/weekly activities, I will be including rants, my views about certain popular topics, and just a general place to express my feelings. The main point of this entire blog is to let my creative side flow and to reflect back on the things I lived through in my senior year of high school. 

 

     Just to fill you in on some quick things about me so you have a general idea about who I am: my name is Taylor-Ann McGee (feel free to add me on Instagram @taylorannmcgee), I am 17 years old, I live in Iowa, I am a senior in high school, some of the people mentioned in this will include Dezire (my best friend), Courtney (another friend of mine), my mom Heather, my dad Michael, my "stepdad" Chris (I can explain later, there's a lot of tea with the quotation marks), and my dogs Brickley, Lucky, and Kona.

     I don't want to go too much in depth here as a lot of who people are and how they are involved in my life will be explained when they come up in my blog. Anyway, thanks for sitting through this little lecture of mine, it is very appreciated. I'll see you soon! (also I am super confused on why the date on here says like 2055 and maybe you can't see it but I can).

  I don't even know how to jump into this so I'm just literally going to jump into it like it's normal. I had my ACTs today and they were pretty not okay. I had to wake up at 6:35 this morning which may not seem like it's that early but I usually wake up at 7 or 7:30. I drove Dezire and Courtney too and we all took the test in the same room. It was my first time but not theirs which kind of sucked because I had no idea what was going to happen. The test really wasn't that bad but I've never sat through a almost five hour test like that. And, of course our room had to be the one that got picked for the special extra test (I had no idea what it was even there for), AND THEN on top of that, we had to take a writing portion of the test where we had to write an essay. By this point, I was already tired and had given up halfway through the science portion (lmao) so I was done. I basically bullshitted my essay and I'm honestly pretty happy with how I wrote it.\

  Well, we drove home, I hung out at Dezire's for a bit, and she got be back into the writing on here (big thanks to her). By the way, she's a really good writer on here as well. Look her up under Zireee (I can't remember how many e's, lmao sorry b (I know she's going to read this eventually)). 

  I came back home after a bit, restarted my Movellas account and almost took a nap. Today's been pretty uneventful. I have homework I have to do that I don't even remember how to do from chemistry so there's that. Oh, I almost forgot, I think I may have to pay $75 soon and long story short, my neighbors are buying my old car, I had to pass over the title because it's in my name, my mom read it wrong and said "sign and date" but it was actually "sign and print" and she corrected herself but I still had in my head "sign and date" so I dated on the print line and I scribbled it out but at the bottom it says you can't do that and it costs about $75 for a new title and I'm screwed. Anyway, I'm going to go back to laying on the couch and watching Live PD and avoiding the pile of dishes in the kitchen I don't want to wash :).

 

QOTD: "Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day." -unknown. I really like this quote because it makes me think of how I would like to start finding at least one good thing in every day. We have a group of older men and women in our town (and all across the nation) that are called Kiwanis. I've been to their meetings before and they always out a dollar in a bucket if something positive is happening in their life. I want to include that in my updates. So, one good thing that happened today? I logged back onto Movellas!

  It is currently 6:43 pm and I'm just laying in bed. I cleaned my entire room today, and took down ALL of the printed pictures on my walls. Majority of them were with my ex best friend which kinda sucked because I took every single one down and threw them away. I kept the ones with family and stuff but I'm down now to less than half of what I started with. I want to go print more at Walgreens bc I can't find the extra ink for my Selfi Printer but I don't have any money :(. I have like $17 in my bank account and like $10 on me which sucks. What sucks even more is that I quit my old job and got a new one and the new job's pay days are every two weeks which is this coming Thursday BUT since I've only worked one day and have only spent a few hours doing paperwork and stuff, my paycheck is only going to be like $40. The good part about that though is I'm working like 4 days this week and hopefully more next week so when I get paid in two weeks, it will be a good pay check. Oh, and I'm pretty sure that I'm filed as exempt on my taxes so :))))))))). (if you don't know what that means, it means I don't have to pay any federal or state taxes bc my mom claims me as her child SO I won't get any money taken out of my paycheck and will take home everything I worked which is such a good thing bc the more you work, the more they take out. I was making like $260 total paychecks at my old job at Subway and they would take out like $40 of that.)

 

  Anyway, a lot hasn't happened today. I just got done eating dinner. We had chinese. For some reason, things aren't tasting that good. Like chinese is one of my favorite food "genres" and it didn't even taste that good. The same goes for Subway. I worked there for almost exactly six months and now it doesn't taste as good as it used to. We would get a free six inch or whatever every single time we worked and I worked a lot so maybe that's why I don't like it. Well, I'm just typing nonsense by this point so I'm going to go ahead and go. One good thing that happened today? I cleaned my room and got newer and warmer bed sheets!

 

QOTD: "There are no limits to what you can accomplish, except the limits you place on your own thinking." - Brian Tracy. I like this quote because it's the absolute truth. I can't count how many times I haven't done stuff because I thought I couldn't or because I thought I wasn't able to because of my own limitations. It kinda sucks how we put limitations on ourselves and think we can't do things just because we've never tried. I could have so many more experiences in life if I had just cut the shit and done it. Like my best friend says, it's my senior year. And I've finally realized as I've gotten older and grown into who I really am that it doesn't matter what people think of me or who does and doesn't like me. Who gives a fuck? No one but myself. And that's why I need to stop thinking like that. Because it gives myself false limitations because I think people don't like me or I can't do it. So what? Just do it.
