30 Days Challenge- Day 25

Your favorite movie.

Titanic. It's so, so, so SO romantic. I mean, what girl wouldn't like a cute guy to go all out to make her happy and be with her. And to be there for her no matter what.

They fell in love within a matter of days and Kate instantly wanted to be with Jack and not her pre-arranged marriage.

They were going to get off that ship and live their lives together, but unfortunately only Kate made it off the ship.

I'm not going to go into any more detail because I'm pretty sure everyone has seen this movie. But if you have not, please, please go watch it! Titanic is my favorite movie of all time and I've seen a lot of movies.

It's such a beautiful story.

A Day In The Life of Minty
I really don't have anything to post about, but I miss posting. Now that I have a little time I think I'll walk you through my day.

Today was boring ole' "picture day" at school. At my school, they never tell us anything. We could be having yearbook pictures made and they literally tell us two class periods before we take our pictures.
So if you needed to get a hair cut, or get your hair done, or possibly do your makeup--forget it!

After pictures, we had to go to P.E. Now, I'm not sure if I've mentioned my PE teacher or not, but she's insane. She treats us as if we are in some boot camp. She'll walk in and be like "get in your lines, 15 pushups, 15 jumping jacks, 40 sit ups, and a five minute run!!"

Like, what the h#ll do you think you're doing here? If I was training for some sort of marathon, sure, I'll do it. But this is PE. Stop taking your job so d@mn serious.

And I honestly don't know why I refuse to type out the cuss words. It just doesn't seem right or something...anyway, after PE was lunch. Like normal I sit with my friends including Sabrina and Eva. Nothing different today.

I was supposed to go to a track meet today, but since I'm injured I decided I'll skip the JV meet and hopefully go to the Varsity meet Friday-Saturday.

Hmm...what else? I had math as my last period. My math teacher is a whole different story which I'll make a separate post about later.
He's got a really nice ass. So that's the highlight of that class period. Anytime he turns around to write on the board. My eyes shift down. Can't help it if he has a baseball player's butt.

So in all, it was a pretty normal day. Nothing special happened, nothing exciting.

Oh wait, did I tell you my friend Eva broke up with Jackass? I'll explain later.

Awkward Is In My Dictionary

Yesterday I had a track meet from 6am-7pm where I ran a total of four events. I also set my personal record of 61 seconds for the 400 meter dash (yay!). So in all, it was a great meet.

After the meet I drove straight to my friend Eva's house to spend the night. And man was it uncomfortable. I'm perfectly fine around Eva, but around her

I feel like I have to be obnoxiously nice after the whole "you're not hanging out with my daughter anymore because you're not appreciative" thing.
Of course they didn't say that to my face, but I now know that was the reason, according to Eva at least.

Her parents were nice and they took us out to church and lunch, but nonetheless, you can understand the awkwardness right?

It's like having a horrible breakup with someone and then six months later spending a whole day with them. It's just not a comfortable situation.

It did get better and wasn't as awkward, but it doesn't make up for that awkward factor.

Q&A Time!

How do you handle criticism?
When it's bad...I simply ignore it. I'm not sure whether or not that is a good thing but it's what I do.
I'm one of those people that can be very strong and brave but I have a clear limit and sometimes things I hear or see can push that limit. When I get in that situation, I completely block it out and pretend the hate around me is not there.
That way I can't get hurt.

Who had or has had the greatest impact on your life?
Probably God. I know that sounds cheesy, but I'm serious. I've always been a Christian but I have never really gotten into my religion. When times got really hard and I had no one to go to, I went to God. I do not think my life would be as good as it is now if he wasn't with me.

If you had a friend that spoke to you the way YOU speak to yourself – would you keep them as a friend and for how long?
Yes. I'm very positive to myself. I refuse to be one of those girls who complain about their bodies or put themselves down just because they aren't doing or looking their best that day. No one can be perfect and I accept that. I try to encourage myself as much as possible and even if something went horribly wrong, I force myself to see the good in it.
If I had a friend like that, I'd keep them in my life for as long as I possibly could.

Do you think crying is a form of weakness or a form of strength?
It's a form of strength for sure! I consider it a weakness if you bottle up your feelings and think you can continue to live with that unhappiness. Crying relieves the pain you have inside and it takes a lot of bravery to sit there and cry it all out. I admire the people who aren't afraid of themselves and see no reason to call it a weakness.

30 Days Challenge- Day 24

Besides writing this post, what are you doing right now?

Listening and singing along to Adele's Hometown Glory

Her voice is beautiful beyond belief! I took singing lessons, a while back, for a couple of years but I don't even come close to her breathtaking talent.

I pray, wish, and hope that one day I can sing that beautiful. I've always loved singing.

30 Days Challenge- Day 23

Let's pick up where we left off, shall we...?

Something that means a lot to you.

My purity ring.

Before you start laughing, let me tell you, this is nothing like the Jonas Brothers. I'm not going to write songs about me being abstinence and then rush and marry someone just to get laid.

No. I simply do not like the idea of sex before marriage for myself and so I wear this ring to remind myself that I am worth waiting for. I'm not going to "give in" to all the pressure from the media and at school.

Where Will Life Take Me?

So I'm on Spring Break and I have nothing to do, nowhere to go, and no one to talk to.

It then leads me to thinking; how long will this last?

This is not the first time I've felt lonely. I've felt this way many times before.
Like no one wants me or wants to talk to me even though deep down I know that isn't true.

But then I think about my future. I want to get married to someone who loves me and that I love back. And I want to be with that person for a really, really long time--until I die. But what if no one wants that with me? What if I never find that man? What if I die alone and never get to be truly in love?

I'm scared of that happening and every time I hear stories of couples that are madly in love or watch movies about newly weds I fear that I will never have that.

Love is such a beautiful thing, so is marriage, and hell, so is sex!
But if I never find "the one" or some one I will never get to experience any of those things that I've always dreamed about.

I have plenty of time. I'm only 15. But time flies by and in no time I could be 50 and single. My whole life I've only had a couple boyfriends. One of which was in the kindergarten and hardly counts as a boyfriend.

If I could go to the future and just see what I'm doing and who I'm with, that would settle this anxiety.

I am seriously the worst blogger ever. I have not posted in almost a week and I completely suck at the 30 days challenge. I promise I'll get back to normal soon.
Anyway, I've started getting an allowance. If you can even call it that. I have to do "chores" (clean dishes, clean house, take care of my dog Pepsi) and after two weeks of work, I get $10. In one month, I can make $20...

I feel like, what's the point of all this hard work if all I get is $10. Maybe if it was $10 every week then I'd be happy. But every two weeks feels like nothing.

I don't want to be ungrateful either. Many people don't even get an allowance and many people can't even get a job.
But either way, I'm still upset.

After track practice and after track meets, the last thing I want to do is come home and do the dishes or come home and vacuum the floors. And for "overtime" I get $5 more. Wow, what a great surprise!

Thoughts #8- High School

Warning: This is a rant.

I went into high school thinking it would be all fun and games and that making friends would be easy and getting good grades would be easier.

I never had trouble with grades until this year. Lately I've been failing quizzes, making B's and C's on tests, and barely putting in effort for my projects. I have to force myself to get off the couch and start my homework.

I've been procrastinating like crazy and I've never been so lazy in my entire life!

I've also been getting in some drama with some girl. It's really not even worth mentioning.

On top of all that, I have practice every single day. It wouldn't be such a problem if track weren't so painful.

I've had calf cramps, shin splints, ankles pains, and knee pains. It's so difficult to run with and I'm icing my shins as I type.

Tomorrow I have another long day. I'll have to wake up early (possibly 6:00 AM) for a track meet and stay until about 6:00 pm or later!

After that I have tests to study for, projects to focus on and homework to finish.

All in a weekend that is far too short.

Why didn't anyone warn me that high school would be so hard?

30 Days Challenge- Day 22

15 facts about you.

I really don't know anything that you all don't already know, but I'll try.

  1. I do not like open doors or windows. It bothers me and I cannot sleep until I know for a fact all doors and windows that are around me are closed.
  2. I hate sitting in the passengers seat in cars. The front is just such an easy way to fly out the window and get killed. 
  3. I get very specific about my food. It has to be cooked a certain way for a certain amount of time and it has to come out with the perfect texture. Otherwise I cannot enjoy it.
  4. I love to go "commando". Feels great.
  5. I have the messiest bed you will ever see. It's so messy I can't even sleep on it.
  6. I'm very religious, but I just do not like going to church every single week. Weird but true.
  7. I fall for the guys that are the complete opposite of me.
  8. I have a crush on someone but I don't want to.
  9. I get upset when I fall behind. I hate making up school work or having to watch my favorite shows on Hulu.
  10. I'm black and proud!
  11. I'm what people call an "oreo" because apparently I do not "act black". Whatever the hell that means.
  12. I only cuss when I type or in my head. I don't cuss out loud. Not because I think it's wrong, I just don't do it.
  13. I would rather die a virgin than a slut.
  14. I think natural is always the way to go. No matter what.
  15. There is not one thing I like about Ke$ha.
So, there you go!
Hopefully you learned 15 things about me that you didn't know before.

And also, I apologize for slacking on the 30 Days Challenge. I'm trying to catch up now.

30 Days Challenge- Day 19

The meaning behind your blog name.

I created this blog to have sort of an online diary. I wanted something where I could express myself without anyone knowing about it.

So what better way to do that than to anonymously blog? I first created this blog with the name "" but I found that name to be obnoxious and changed it to "".

Minty is the name my friends call me. It's part of my middle name and I guess it just went on from there. The "allthings..." part is just because I randomly talk about everything

From sex to track to nail polish to food. Whatever is on my mind.

I am pretty pleased with this blog name, so it probably won't change for a while.
