Siri is Not Southern

Who’s My Favorite Today!

Who's My Favorite Today?

The other day I was using Siri on my phone to find some information.  I was quite pleased with her prompt and accurate finds, so I felt the need to thank her.  I said, “muchos gracias Siri.”  But what Siri heard was “muchos grassy us.”  Oh my Southern accent!  Siri is seriously not a Southern girl!  We may break up soon.  No.  Not really.

Sorry Siri, but you are the least favorite today.

Daily tally:

Avery +8/-3, Brooke +9/-2, Kate +12/-5, Siri 0/-1

The Tiniest Achievements

Ever heard the classic conversation starter ‘If you had a fire, what would you save?’ Imagine if your legitimate answer was ‘well I did have a fire – and I lost it.’ That’s right; you had a fire and now you’re also a mood killer. You’re probably not feeling so good about yourself right now huh?

The Great Bedroom Fire of 2012, as it is fondly remembered today five years on (queue a fire emoji followed by several coloured hearts, you know the drill) wasn’t the biggest of fires in the grand scheme of things. It flamed across the curtains, cracking the window in the process, burnt through a suitcase packed with clothes and a couple of boxes and along the wardrobe. The rest of my small student room was smoke damaged had to be redecorated and carpeted but the remaining objects and furniture were mostly salvageable. I had spent the first term of my…

Let Me Ask You A Question – 3/25/17

Mark Twain – “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

Let me ask you a question:

Can one truly have an open mind without traveling the world?

Sometimes, you just have to close your eyes, count to ten, take a deep breath, remind yourself that you wouldn’t look good in prison stripes, and just smile at the dumbass and walk away.

I hold the same opinion as Jason over at Harsh Reality that operating a blog on WordPress is just like having a profile on Facebook or Twitter and should be used as such. The idea of interacting in order to get interaction changed my view of blogging forever.  So think about these links as a free opportunity to meet a new friend and expand your blog’s reach.

For those of us on the pursuit to happiness, we have to come to the realisation that we have to move on from certain things in our past. If we let them linger, then those things can hold us back and if they can and we let them, they will. Whether that be an ex partner, an old friend, or a bad habit, something that has been around for a long enough period of time that we feel a pang of guilt at the thought of cutting ties.

The thing is, even as difficult as even the thought is, sometimes it is what needs to be done to free you  from being  held back from being truly happy. If you are honest with yourself, that aspect of your life, no matter what or who it is, they are making your life less than desirable. You might be so used to…
