And depending on if people like them…..

I might be selling them 🙂

I found this concept on Pinterest.Com

(Its a mug with an added shelf….for COOKIES! )

and had the “AHAAA!” Moment!

would have the perfect cup!

 Those coffee finatics, ya….there scones would have a hideout!

and best of all….it is hand made!!

So shoot me an E-Mail : Mariahvolz@gmail.com

The Loner

All my life I’ve been alone, everything from not having a father, to not having “Friends”. I see the people around me laughing, chatting, and hanging out, doing the same things…..together. I guess being together for 12+ years, you wouldn’t know any different. But I’m sadly learning that when you are forced to leave the people you know ,and the friends you love in the middle of those 12 years…..It can ruin a person. I sit in class and look to my right, there they are, the people I thought I could call “Friends”. They ignore me, they don’t even acknowledge me, even when I try! What does a girl have to do to get a decent friend around here?

You can call them the ‘mean girls’, ‘that clique’, maybe even the ‘suck up girls’, But they probably don’t know any better. I just wish they would try.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have maybe two good friends. But they are never there to listen to me when I need them the most. Wait…..then are they actually my friends?

How could something that is supposed to be simple, be so difficult? What does someone mess up for this to happen?

I’m the kind of person who will walk up to a lonely nerd at a school dance and say “Hey, would you like to dance?” Heck, I’d even walk up to a random hot guy and say, “My name is Mariah! What is yours?” But how does one go about making actual friends when people don’t acknowledge you?

So many unanswered questions!

In life, how can you make lemonade without lemons?
All of this ‘drama’ has taught me a lot about myself, in a way.. It’s made me a better person!


Is it bad that I am already thinking about prom?
… okay DONT answer that …
I mean, how can you avoid something so…. SO MASSIVE!
There are so many unanswered questions, anyone have some answers?? 🙂
And, I mean, its not like… “What shade of blue makes me look skinny”
-What color dress?
-Should I buy one now?
-What if I gain weight and can’t fit in my dress?
-Do I drive myself?
-Does my date drive me?
-What if the guy I want to ask me, DOESN’T?
-What if the guy I don’t want to ask me…DOES!?
ah! My mind is spinning! and I need answers! FAST!

This blog is a shout out to Galen Bell,
Galen is my best friend!
He is the drum-major for the Blue Wave Band,
A pretty cool guy,
And probably the only high schooler that reads my blog.

Just a moment ago I received a text message from him exclaiming his love for me, and how one day……We would be married 🙂 BUT!!!! If I didn’t post new ‘Material’ He would deny me and my love for his 10.0 GPA. He also explained the process of photosynthesis to me, and how (like a flower) his love is the sun…….and how I need it to survive in this horrid world we live.

So! I jumped quick to my feet.
Ran to my computer.
logged on to WordPress (which took awhile, I forgot my password)[Whoops]
And typed up a dying love story, for my soon-to-be-Hubby
So he would read my blog, forevermore……

What’s the point?

Yes…Blogging….Not only a Noun, but a Verb!

Lets take a closer look shall we?

BLOGGING- a Web site containing the writer’s or group of writers’ own experiances, observations, opinions, etc., and often having images and links to other Web sites.

Im sure its been around for a decade or so… but let me double-check!

……………………………………….AH! Here we go!!….

The term “weblog” was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The short form, “blog,” was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog Peterme.com in April or May of 1999. Shortly thereafter, Evan Williams at Pyra Labs used “blog” as both a noun and verb (“to blog,” meaning “to edit one’s weblog or to post to one’s weblog”) and devised the term “blogger” in connection with Pyra Labs’ Blogger product, leading to the popularization of the terms.


So now I ask once again. WHAT’S THE POINT?

The Final Blog

As the third week of school has quickly approached, My HTV Teacher continues to nag about my ability to not blog.

So lets get started,

This “Southern Swing” was alright.

Little drama, lots of cash and I was full for weeks.

Many memories were made, blah blah blah…..you get my drift.

.Great times.

HTV Bus Tour : Day 8, Gatlinburg

No words can describe how scared I am from this city. Oh My Goodness!

Going to two scary attractions…..IN A ROW! The first was a Ripley’s Believe It Or Not haunted maze…which I will post tomorrow! The second was a scary sit-down show, I thought it was the scariest of the two. Ryan, poor thing, went first in the maze, with only 8 other people behind him and a tiny glow stick to guide us through, I felt bad, but then again…..I was in the middle. Lets just say….I am staying in this hotel room!

The best part of the day was probably eating a lunch/dinner at Texas Roadhouse with Breanna, Kaley, Jessica, Ryan, and myself. And even though we were full….we got ice cream, I have no clue how I could walk after that, but I did. Let me tell you, spending money on souvenirs is painful to watch and do yourself. YIKES! especially when these creepy guys are flirting with you, but whats worse….when weird guys started taking pictures of Kaley and I in the trolley, I wanted to punch them! Im just glad I wasn’t alone. Oh! Kaley and I got Aton of candy! EEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKK wooooooooooo!!! I am still hyper!

HTV Bus Tour : Day 6 & 7, Charleston

The bus ride to Charleston was 10 hours! And I can tell you…..I slept the whole way! but when there is no breakfast and you are forced to eat McDonalds….things get rough. I had to consume a motion sickness pill to get through that pain!!. Once we got there it was round 7:30 and everyone was starving and exhausted. We had to walk around on uncharted grounds after getting kicked off the trolley, and for tourists like us…..that was scary. Everyone split up into groups to fend for themselves, after walking forever and deciding on a place to eat we realized it was on the opposite side of the peninsula of where we were staying, but let me tell you, trying to track down a taxi is a whole other story!..lets just say, after walking a few blocks, and paying $11 we arrived at our destination. Other than that… Great City! No but really, I had a decent time. While in Charleston we got to ride these things called trolleys, which are pretty sketchy. On my way to go shopping I actually left my purse on a trolley, which was the scariest, most nerve racking thing I’ve ever done. Once we recovered my purse (thanks to Ali) Kim, Jodi, Mrs. Putman and I grabbed a smoothy king and hit the road running. The small boutiques were very adorable, and even though the shirts ran around $30+ and the dresses around $50+ I did a great job!

HTV Bus Tour : Day 4 & 5, PCB

WOW! What a crazy two days folks. The beach was so beautiful ,the sand was white and soft, the waves were 5-6 feet tall and the sun was shining.

One of the two downsides to Panama City ;

The sunburns it gave us! and two…The amount of money it took from our wallets.

Some exciting things that occurred :

-Ear piercings and Henna tattoos galore!

-Having a 5 star chef being put to work on the grills,

and beach volleyball…which, Bradley and I dominated in.

During the first night of our stay we all crashed this awesome party at a coffee house, I think they were from the midwest. They were alright, This kid named Jessica sang, It was soooo beautiful. Once that got old we shimmied on down to Pier Park where Kaley Prier and I rode mechanical surfboards, talk about LEGIT! Overall it was a well rounded two days.
