December went so fast, like SO fast, and this year flew by, but also felt like two years in one.
I will recap my December and the whole year in this post and look forward to letting you know what I have coming up in 2023.
December was awesome! We obviously decorated for Christmas and watched Christmas movies, but also did so much more than that.
I went to go stay with my best friend in her apartment for four days and we had so much fun. We had dance party in her living room, did an escape room, ate a ton of food, went to Painting With a Twist (again), walked around the Christmas village in LOVE Park, shopped, and had a great time. I miss her already, but we have plans for this year lined up already.
As for concert news, I scored tickets to THREE in just December. First up was Joshua Bassett. I will be seeing him for my birthday in March with my best friend. After that, me and my family decided to see Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks, which takes place on Father’s Day weekend. And I finally got TAYLOR SWIFT TICKETS through the second chance system, and they are lower bowl. I am going with my best friend and I could not be more excited!!
I also got to see a few other friends, as many were home for the holidays and breaks.
Christmas Eve was super fun. Besides working in the morning, we went over my Pop-Pop’s house and spent time with family. Then, Christmas Day we just relaxed, ate turkey, and had my uncle and Pops over. I got a lot of nice gifts on Christmas that I absolutely love.
New Year’s Eve we spent with family friends, whom we have known forever and those memories will last a lifetime.
The last month of the year was probably one of the best. I have so many memories from it.
After this post, I know it’s late, but I will update everyone on what I have coming up for the new year and do a 2022 recap.
November felt like a week, but also a whole year at the same time.
I can’t believe the month is actually over and we are in the last month of 2022. I swear yesterday was March.
A lot happened this month, so let’s get into it.
The month started off amazing. Taylor Swift announced that she was going on tour again for the first time in five years and I literally thought of nothing but that until tickets went on sale…. but we’ll get to that in a bit.
Then, a few days later, my signed CD from Taylor arrived. I told myself that if there was a heart with the signature, it would be my first tattoo, but I escaped that one as there was no heart.
Also at the beginning of the month, we still had Red October Phever, as the Phillies played in the last few games of the World Series. We all know how that turned out.
Then, of course, I voted and Chris Evans was voted the Sexiest Man Alive, so they were two good things.
Then me and my brother FINALLY got to go back to New York City, almost a year to the day we went last year.
Our main focus was seeing the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but we also lucked out and got to explore the Harry Potter New York store. It was more than just buying things though. There were interactive experiences with wands, statues of characters, and a huge Butterbeer bar. I HIGHLY recommend if you are a big Potter fan like we are.
We then made our way over to the busy part of the city to see the play at the Lyric Theater. It exceeded my expectations. I had read the script book beforehand, so I knew what to expect going into it, but wow.
The visual effects were amazing. Dementors flew out from the ceiling, words were written on the wall, sparks came out of wands. And the acting was great as well.
After the play, my brother and I had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe right down the street and then shopped a little bit in Time’s Square before barely missing our bus back home, but that’s a story for another time.
Then, November 15 came. What I thought was going to be a happy, triumphant day turned out to be a really frustrating one.
I thought, great, I had a boost from Taylor Nation, I’ll go in get my tickets, and start planning my outfits.
But nope, Instead I was 16,000 people back in line IN A PRE-SALE and by the time I got I got into the queue, it was sold out. Ok, round 2.
I got a Capital One card, just for this occasion and pre-sale, but STILL didn’t have any luck. I was 6,000 people in line and still didn’t get any tickets. Then, Ticketmaster cancelled the general sale and you’re girl is still ticketless to the ERAS TOUR, but anywaayyyyy. Me and Ticketmaster have beef.
So, I tried every giveaway, every radio entry, everything. And I am not giving up hope. I know tickets will fall into my lap. We are manifesting and praying on it.
Also, this month, my baby cousin turned one and the party was so much fun. Yes, I took chicken tenders and fries from the kid’s table, who’s going to stop me?
And some other good news. MARK BALLAS WON HIS THIRD MIRRORBALL on this season of Dancing With The Stars. Him and Charli D’Amelio were a force to be reckoned with and I am so glad, they took home the win.
Just a few days later, it was Thanksgiving. We hosted and had most of the family over. We also celebrated my pop-pop’s 87th birthday that night and were so thankful to have him here with us.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, we started decorating for Christmas and are looking forward to wrapping, and seeing friends and family, and the holidays.
If anyone wants to see a separate post on my NYC experience or the Taylor Swift ticketd debacle, please let me know!
As always, stay safe and I will talk to you all next month and NEEX YEAR OMG!
I cannot believe it is November already. I remember March and February of this year very clearly. That’s insane.
October started off nice. I went to go see Don’t Worry, Daring on the first weekend and I got to see Harry, even though the movie was a little odd.
I then went to a vendor/community day at my mom’s old grade school and we wound up winning a Phillies basket and having a lot of fun!
Going through Midnights Mayhem With Me with Taylor Swift was probably a highlight of the month.
I also watched Elvis and Blonde. I did like Elvis, Blonde, not so much.
I got to see family and celebrate people in the family’s birthday.
One day, my power went out during the middle of work. That was SO MUCH FUN. Verizon wasn’t going to come out until the next day, so I went over my friend’s house who lives right around the corner. Thank God for them.
Since the 21st, I have been listening to NOTHING but Midnights by Taylor Swift. It is such a fire album and has broken so many records and I am so proud of her. Everyone should go stream.
That weekend I went to go see my best friend, who now lives in the city instead of the suburbs. We had a lot of fun. We went to painting with a twist, did an escape room, we lost but it was still fun, and ate a lot hahah.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to see her again before the holidays.
To end the month, we went to a craft show at a local high school and I bought some cute things. And then, there was Halloween. We stayed home and gave out candy, but it wound up pouring rain, so not a lot of kids came by after that.
Besides that, we have been cheering on the Phillies! They are two games away from becoming World Series Champions and we are so excited!
As always, thanks for reading and Stay safe. I can’t wait to update you with what I am up to in November. It’s going to be fun!
Time is slipping away from me and I almost forgot to write my September blog post.
October has been that busy already and it’s not even a week into yet.
Let’s see. September was filled with seeing family on Labor Day (and working for two of the three days, but that’s a story for another time).
I went to the mall for the first time in forever and of course, picked up a ton of books and things, but I also got a lot of Christmas shopping done.
I had a little bit of a rough time in the middle of the month and thought maybe my writing wasn’t good enough, but I moved on (sort of) from that.
I also went out to eat a few times and had DELICIOUS food.
Oh yeah, did you guys see Jupiter because I did?
Isn’t that a great picture? LOL.
Aside from that, I spent most of it working and with my family and cat. October is already shaping up to be busier than the whole of September. I have some fun things planned and it seems like every weekend I am busy now, but at least it’s fun things for the most part.
We also got fed a lot in the pop culture realm, and you know by now, that that is my specialty. Harry appeared at numerous premieres and red carpets for his movies. The Big Brother finale aired and made history with its winner. Taylor Swift stunned everyone with her looks at TIFF. And all of this was only in the beginning of the month.
I know I say this every month, but how am I back here AGAIN right another blog post for the end of the month? Time just doesn’t seem real.
Nothing substantial happened in my life in August, unless you count Taylor Swift announcing her 10th studio album, but we’ll get to that.
August was mostly filled with seeing friends, working, shopping, hanging out with family, and trying to avoid the heat at all costs.
I am excited to see what September brings. I already have a few plans made and can’t wait to see what the rest of the month entails.
I was on the VMAs pre-show, only in video form, as I sent in one to talk about why I love Harry Styles haha.
Also, not only did Taylor Swift break the record for the first person to win Video of the Year three times, but she also announced her album Midnight would be out on October 21. EEEEK! I am so excited and cannot wait to hear it.
It is crazy that this year is almost over. It literally feels like my birthday was last week.
Sorry, I don’t have much to say, but as always, thank you for reading and for reading my articles.
Hopefully, I will have something more exciting to share with you next time. Stay safe and happy September and almost FALL!
There is no way it is AUGUST! Where did the summer go?
July was a really fun month. I went on vacation, and got to spend time with friends and family and just enjoyed myself.
Spent the Fourth of July with family and then went to go see fireworks. (Down with the patriarchy but I love a good fireworks show).
Then, I spent a lot of my time working as per usual.
We got the Late Night Talking video from Harry Styles and that just made my month.
Still, no update on new Taylor Swift music, but I have a feeling August might change that. 🙂
I was in PetSmart earlier in the month, taking my cat to get his nails trimmed and my flip-flops broke, so I had to walk around the store with a broken shoe. (Snapchat saw it first).
Towards the end of the month, I went to Ocean City, NJ, with my childhood best friend and her family. Aside from the amazing sunsets and great views, the vacation was so much fun. We got ice cream and went shopping and did an escape room on the boardwalk, along with mini-golf and an Ocean City adventure, which made me get blisters on my toes, but oh well. I’ll always have those special memories to look back on.
Aside from all of that, I finished out July working and being back home with my family.
I was supposed to go to my Shawn Mendes concert on the 26th, but he canceled the whole tour. I’m not mad at him. I’m more concerned than anything. I just want him to get better and be ok. Mental health is nothing to joke about and if you feel like you need help, reach out to someone.
Sorry, I haven’t updated this site recently. My other minor writing roles have been put on the back burner since I’ve been working for The Sun, but hopefully, I’ll be able to update it more soon.
Enjoy this last month of Summer. It is going way too fast. As always, I will talk to you next month. Stay safe and thank you all for the support.
