Back In The Blogging World

Posted by Megan at 8:36 PM
Hey everyone I'm blogging again =) I figured with me starting my last year of highschool soon lots of things will be going on and not everyone is on twitter so this is a good way to keep everyone in the loop.

So to start off I don't think anyone besides my family will be reading this, but if you are reading this and you don't know me let me help you with that. My name is Megan. I'm 17, gonna start my senior year of highschool soon, I plan on going to NYC with one of my best friends when I graduate. I am completely addicted to soap opera's. Well one only its called "One Life To Live" if you are familiar with it I love Starr & Cole <3

Okay so now that everyone knows me I can actually start blogging.

This summer has been insanely busy for me. I've barely been home at all. Here's a little recap of how its been so far....

  • The summer started as soon as I stepped out of school. I went to my friend Chayton's house. It was me, him, my friend Jacque, and his friend Kyle. We stayed there for two nights. It was the first time I slept in a camper haha so I was excited. We had a bonfire both nights which involved us burning all of our homework, notes, papers, ect. We lit some pretty freaking cool fireworks. Thats about it for those two days.
  • The day I left Chaytons I took a bus down to Detroit with the drama department of our school. We went to the Fisher Theatre and saw "Grease" on stage which was beyond cool! I've loved the movie since I was a kid so to see it live was just amazing. The only thing that would have made it better was if it had John Travolta and Oliva Newton John, but since they are far too old to do that I'll settle with what I had. After we saw Grease we went to... Greek Town! We went to a Greek restraunt, and for those of you who know me I get chicken wherever I go! Chicken finger, chicken strips, chicken nuggets, whatever you want to call them thats what I get, nothing else. They had pre-ordered meals. We got to chose between some weird things, someone explained to me that one of them was a chicken cabob. I decided to go for it, but couldn't eat it because it touched the peppers and that gave it a really strange flavor. I did however try this cheese stuff that they lit on fire. Someone swore to me it tasted like mozzerella sticks when you dipped the bread in it. I went against my better judgement considering it smelled like throw up, and I tried it and had to choke it down. But even though it was awful I was excited to say taht I tried it since I never try anything! Afterwards I finally got to go home, even though it was only for a night.
  • The next day I went downstate to where my mom works and stays during the week. I spent some time down there before I left to California. I have to say I was actually surprised with how well the ride there went considering we had the boys (Bryan and Sean) who when they are around their mother aren't always the best behaved. It went pretty well though. Anyways California was a blast. I'm not going to get into all of it since we did quite a lot and most of you reading this were there anyways haha. I got to see all of my family which was really cool since I never get to do this. We went to Sea World, the beach, and we climbed a mountain to find a beautiful waterfall. I took tons of pictures, but then got my memory card stuck in my mom's laptop =( We spent most of our nights at Grandpa's house, and while I was there I had the best freaking corn on the cob ever! haha had to throw that in there. After a fun few days everyone left Cali but I stuck around a little longer which is when my next adventure began.....
  • The day my group of family left the rest of us went out to dinner, and while most of the people went back to Aunt Kathy's house I went with Aunt Adrienne to Vegas. I had sooooo much fun there. It was full of just relaxing and not rushing. We saw a few movies like The Hangover, The Proposal, and My Sister's Keeper which I loved all of them! We went to Downtown Freemont and saw the amazing ceiling show. This year it was all like 1969 themed so it was really interesting. Aunt Adrienne forced me to try a deep fried Oreo. I had my mind set on not wanting to taste that disgusting thing and I was ready to tell her how crazy she was for liking it. Then the most amazing thing happened, I put the oreo in my mouth and it was soooooo yummy (those aren't the exact words I said but something along those lines haha). So we had to go back another night for them of course. I also tried the Deep Fried Twinkie which was really gross. Aunt Adrienne introduced me to the Deep Fried Oreo, and I in return introduced her to the world of Sonic! We went there every day (sometimes twice a day) and most of the time we just happened to make it for Happy Hour (between 2 PM and 4 PM) when drinks are half off. I got to go to the wax museum which was pretty awesome. I got to poke many celebs in the eye haha which I found funny for some reason. They were all so real though, sometimes I would wonder if a person was real or wax. We went down the strip a few times. One day we went to the M&M store where I bought my mommy some stuff for her kitchen and we met the M&M guy. Then next we went over to the Coke store. We met the Cocoa Cola bear and he was pretty freaking cool if I do say so myself. Then I tried drinks from around the world, and the drink from Italy was the worst by far! While sitting there with my drinks, on June 25th, I found out Michael Jackson had died. And just throwing this out, when he died I didn't know much about him besides all the negative publicity and since then I've seen soooo many amazing home videos of his, and I have grown to become a huge fan of his. Anyways thats the majority of the trip to Vegas. It was so much fun and just relaxing and I'm reallllly glad Aunt Adrienne took me.
  • After spending a few days in Vegas with Aunt Adrienne we drove back to California. I spent the next few days with my Aunt Kathy. One night we went to see The Proposal. I had saw it already, but it was such a great movie I was more than happy to see it again. We also took Caitlyn swimming at Grandpa's pool. She had so much fun. I would help her go to the middle of the pool then back again until she could do it herself. The poor little got blisters though =( The next day Aunt Kathy and I went to the happiest place on earth Disney Land! I personally love Disneyland, and California Adventures. We went to both parks and I was so happy cause the lines were insanely short. We even got to ride Pirates and Space Mountain twice! Aunt Kathy went on all of the rides with me which was really cool cause I hate riding with strangers. One of the best rides though was at California Adventures and its something called "Soaring Over California" it is one of those virtual time rides, and you literally feel like you are flying over the places that they show you. We also saw a really cool Aladian show. The Genie had some of the funniest lines it was a great chance to just escape the heat, relax, and have a good laugh. So when I was a kid I went to Disneyland and all I really remembered was that I loooooved Small World. I thought that was just the coolest thing I had ever been on. So the past two times (before this recent trip) that I went to Disney, Small World was closed! And I was just so mad because I loved that ride and I wanted to ride it. So this year I went and was so thrilled because it was open! So that was like the second ride we went on (after our favorite Space Mountain of course). We get on the ride, and I'm all excited, and when we got in there I was in total shock. Haha it was ummmm a bunch of dolls singing a song. Yeah did I mention I was reallllly little when I went on that ride? It was cute for a kid ride and it was a good way to just relax but it was not at all what I had remembered. I guess you change from being a little kid. Anyways I had soooo much fun at Disneyland. I'm really glad I got to go there you are never too old to have fun at Disney lol. It was so much fun =) After that though I went back to Aunt Kathy's and the next day I went home to Michigan....
  • I spent a few days downstate in Michigan, then we took off for New York. In New York I got to see Melody (my sister) and Lynn (my niece) which is always so much fun. Lynn has to be the cutest freaking kid ever! The whole point of the trip though was we had a concert on July 4th. This was the first of my concerts this summer. We saw 38 Special, Styx, and REO Speedwagon. It was a really great show. REO was my first concert so I was excited to see them again. I was very upset though that Styx didn't play Mr. Roboto haha even without that it was really awesome, and they had fireworks at the end. We also went to John and Mary's house. We had a fire there like we normally do. Those are always fun cause I love fires. We weren't there too long but it was fun....
  • After New York I finally got to go HOME! All the way home. I wasn't home too long but it was nice to be home even for a little while. I went to the movies with my friend Alaina and her cousins. We saw Ice Age 3 which sucked really bad. But oh well I just wanted to leave the house lol. Then Chayton who is in Ohio all summer, was home for a few days so Jacque and I went to his house. It was his sister's grad party, so there was a ton of their family there. Which was kinda strange at first but after a while it wasnt too bad. We played Croquet with his uncle, aunt, cousin, and some other type of relative haha. I found out I totally suck at that game. But then we played Bocce Ball which I rocked at! haha for the most part anyways lol. After that we just kinda hung out randomly. We were inside and Chaytons mom made him go start a fire for them, which they never went out to lol the adults all just kinda disappeared. So me, Jacque, Chayton, his cousin Tess and some other cousin all just hung out by the fire all night. Chayton and Tess lit bottle rockets, I stayed away cause they freak me out. I did get a cold after that night cause it was like in the high 40's and we were outside all night. We had a lot of fun, then the cousins went into the camper and us 3 went into the house. It was kinda uncomfy cause most of the pillows and blankets were used up haha so the floor wasnt the best but oh well. I ended up not sleeping much that night. I watched The Bee movie, which was actually pretty good for a kids movie haha. Then I slept on and off. The next day we hung out more til Jacques mom picked us up. I stayed home for a while more then soon after that near the end of July me and Jacque went downstate for Warped Tour.....
  • We spent a week downstate which went pretty well, we didn't kill each other haha thats always good. We only swam once and it started raining so that kinda sucked. Aunt Adrienne and Aunt Erika came up too. Aunt Erika only stayed a day, but Aunt Adrienne stayed longer. We had fun going to Target since thats like the best store ever. We also took her blow up friend Monty back to the Ford plant. We hit a Long John's and a Sonic. Then we went to see The Ugly Truth which was pretty good. It was a typical hate to love movie. Then that night we went to the midnight showing of Funny People which was suuuuuuch a good movie. But I love anything with Adam Sandler or Seth Rogan, so having both of them was amazing! We got home pretty late, and Jacque and I had to crash right away cause we were going to Warped Tour the next day. That was my second concert of the summer. It was soooooo much fun. The heat was so much better than last year. It wasn't miserably hot so that helped so much. I got to see the band I wanted to see last year "All Time Low" I was sooooo excited and they totally lived up to my expectations. That was the best concert of the event. I also got to hear Hiding In Thailand which was so cool cause I got to meet them, have them sign their CD, and I got their guitar pick. So that was really cool. Overall it was lots of fun. That night we brought Jacque back up north, but I went back downstate and spent the week down there because that weekend we drove to New York....
  • New York once again was so much fun. Lynn get bigger and smarter every time I see her. I read to her a lot, she loved it and I loved it. We took her to the zoo and she just loved to feed the baby goats. I think her favorite part though may have been the little playground. We had so much fun there. Then afterwards we went to the mall and got Auntie Annie's cause thats the best pretzel place EVER! We also went to the best store ever, Target. We then when to Walmart which I dont much care for, but we got a game called Buzz Word to play that night. It ended up being a really fun game. We played quite a few rounds of that then went to bed. The next day we had a spaghetti dinner for Matthew's birthday. We spent the day up at John & Mary's. It was too icky out to swim, so we just hung around and talked and ate and played Buzz Word some more. We had so much fun there, and then went home the next day. I already miss Mel and Lynn =(
  • We went "home" meaning downstate. I spent the day down there, then the next day (which was yesterday actually) I went to another concert. It was Saving Abel, Papa Roach, Hinder, and Nickelback. We (we being me, my dad, robin, her bf Dave, his sister Rose, and their friends Bridgette and James) ended up being really late. We missed all of Saving Abel, and we heard most of Papa Roach from the parking lot and inside the gates. We found a spot to sit by the time Hinder was on, which I wasn't too impressed by them. However Nickelback made up for that 100% That was by far the best concert I have ever seen! They had so much energy, they played songs from all of their albums. They came back for an encore, played my favorite song last (Animals) and they had so many fireworks and pyro effects. It really was incredible. After that I went home (all the way home) with Robin and them.

So so far I have had a crazy summer. I think the last big thing I have this summer is I'm going to see Creed in concert on August 25th. Anyways I plan on actually keeping up with this blog so check back =)
