Dear 2019

Dear 2019,

You are coming in HOT. Once again I will being entering the new year single. 2018 I put myself out there. I got hurt. Was reminded why all guys are shit. But I had really good times. I can’t hate 2018. I got closer to one of my friends that I am so thankful for. I say Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé and Jay-Z in concert, along with the Charli XCX, Camila Cabello, Anne-Marie, Chloe x Halle, DJ Khalid, and Snow Patrol as the openers to these amazing concerts. I WENT TO DISNEY! I’ve had good times an left my comfort zone. I finally got my hip fixed and it is feeling great.

However, there were the struggles. I was hurt, really bad. It still hurts. I struggled a lot with my anxiety. I’ve had to cut some people off. My sister had a miscarriage. I lost my Lili, which took a part of me that I will never get back.

But 2019. I will be welcoming my new niece into the world in March. I can’t wait to meet her, while she now has an name, I will always call her Elsa Spiny as her brother and sister kindly named her.

Maybe I’ll find love, maybe I won’t. I am bringing Human Carpet with me so beware.

I have come to a place where I am done trying to only please others. I matter too. My feelings and opinions matter. Anyone who cares about me should care about how I feel and want me to express them, not go to great lengths to ignore them.

But I have also learned that forgiveness is important. I won’t forget all that someone has done to me, but carrying that negative energy of hate and sadness, only brings me done, and there won’t be time for that in 2019.

I said 2018 would be my year, but there were setbacks. I learned from them though, I grew from them, so I guess it was my year in a way.

2019 here I come girl. I got a shiny sequin dress to welcome you.

Your Girl,

Tiffany

Let’s Get Touristy

Glitter Raptor and I went to Freeport yesterday. It is a prime tourist attraction in Maine. We both have had a rough few weeks so we needed to stop being lonely hermits. We bought some Wicked Whoopies and wandering around L.L. Bean . We came across a tent that was zipped so we joked that there was probably a couple having sex. Nope, we opened it to find a mortified 15 year old girl who was hiding on her dad.

Of course it rained because it does when we do anything. Look at Disney. But it stopped eventually.

Day 3

Today we traveled back to the Magic Kingdom. Since we basically covered the whole park, this day was mainly used to ride on rides again. I also was able to get the Millennial Pink Milkshake. It was really just sugar piled on sugar and I loved every sip of it.

Anyways, on this day we went on Peter Pan, which was amazing, the People Mover, which I loved, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride, which I enjoyed after waiting 2 hours with many poison apples and impending weather threatening to close it. The Carousel of Progress was cool. We also wandered over to the circus section. When I went when I was 5 I refused to go on Dumbo because I was scared of heights. Fast forward 18 years, still scared of heights, but braver, so I went on it and it was enjoyable. We also went on the small roller coaster in that area and it was fun, a lot more my speed.

My favorite was the Jungle Cruise. I love the guides sassiness and their puns.

Once again it rained, so the parade became a rainy day parade (all the parades that day were the rainy day themed). My friend, who would like to be referred to as Glitter Raptor, had this guy who was in the parade bow down to her and we were all confused and clearly ruined his whole thing. She had a bow with a crown on it, but we didn’t realize that until it was too late……

We went back and had an amazing dinner at our hotel, got a little drunk, then Glitter Raptor and I went back into the park. We intended to watch the fireworks, but ended up going on the Haunted Mansion again and Thunder Mountain. We did see some of the fireworks. This is when security and everyone thereafter began calling Glitter Raptor and I “Princess”, bitch I am a Goddess.

On our walk back to our hotel there were 4 young, extremely intoxicated guys walking ahead of us. One stop to pee on a tree that was 50 feet from the hotel. Get it together.

Day 2

On day to we mastered how to get to the monorail. We also mastered how to use the shower in our hotel room. There were several knobs, it wasn’t you’re average shower.

Anyways, this was our first day at Magic Kingdom. We rode the haunted mansion (loved it), pirates of the Caribbean, the buzz lightyear ride (I got the highest score in my group), thunder mountain, splash mountain, space mountain, the tea cups, basically all the rides. Thunder mountain was broken during our fast pass window and of course opened up right after, but we still got on very quick.

I also tried my first Dole Whip!

Of course it rained again, by rain I mean downpours for hours. It started to flood. Things were bad.

I am also apparently invisible because all week I was hit by strollers or run into by people.

Disney Day 1

For Our first day at Disney World we went to Epcot. Our resort didn’t have the monorail so we had to walk to another resort to catch it. However we got lost and ended up at another resort, but made it none the less. We saw lizards along our walk that were adorable.

At Epcot we rode all the main rides, like Soarin’ (I love how they infuse scents during this), we wandered around the aquarium, and learned about Disney’s research (I wanted to get a job in their lab). Mission to Mars was a little too intense for me and I thought I was going to pass out.

Then, we embarked on drinking around the world. We started in Canada and ended in Mexico. We successfully drank alcohol at every country and Africa which is referred to as a trading post. Also, it rained all afternoon and we had some big thunderstorms and lightning hitting all around us, but that didn’t stop us.
