Dog Sitting

Most everyone enjoys the company of good old dogs. But, have you ever thought of making a living out of babysitting them?

In the summer, my family friends go on vacation for weeks or even longer and ask myself if I would watch over their dogs at their home. This summer I agreed to watch two households full of dogs.

At these homes, the families ask if I would care for their dog(s); including; feeding, letting them outside, walking, cleaning any messes they make, etc. These families are very kind and also include food for me for the week. In return, I clean their house before they come back from vacation.

I don’t set a charge for the families and accept anything they want to pay me. I’m a poor college kid who enjoys getting new things so money is money to me.

Watching the dogs is not hard either because most dogs warm up to me very easily. I enjoy spoiling them and making sure they are loved at all times.

I believe this job is very ideal for someone with a part-time job or even someone in-between jobs.

I also work at my part-time job while I’m watching these dogs so I’m gaining even more money.

It’s so much easier than babysitting and a lot more relaxed. If you’re an animal lover, I highly recommend asking on your local selling Facebook page if anyone is in search of a dog sitter. You can also ask your friends or coworkers if they are in need of someone. My best connection is my mom since she knows most everyone in town from her work.

I recommend meeting the dogs and previewing the house before agreeing to dog sitting. Sometimes the dogs may not like you and it could turn into a disaster.

Best of luck if you consider taking on this job.

10 Shows to Watch This Summer On Netflix

1. Supergirl

supergirl

I myself am a huge superheroes fan. I enjoy watching superhero movies and the TV shows. It, of course, is originally on the CW. This network is just amazing at picking up brilliant shows. All of my favorite shows originally aired on the CW.

Supergirl is about Superman’s cousin, who is technically older than him and was sent to guide him. Her ship was thrown off and she reached Earth a lot longer than her cousin. She also didn’t reveal she was an alien until she was much older. She fights other aliens and makes it look so badass. Superman is also featured, which makes me happy because he’s my favorite. There are only two seasons but I highly recommend the binge.

2. Sherlock

bigbrother-news

Yes, the episodes are more like movies but man is it worth it. Every second of the episodes will blow your mind. It’s so brilliantly done. The acting, the camera work, the editing, everything about this series is amazing. The current season literally blew my mind. If you love twists and action, just watch. You will not be disappointed.

Sherlock is literally just a modern take on the famous Sherlock Holmes novels. I adore the modern take and it makes it so much more entertaining.

3. The Office

MDot-TheOffice-640x360-MP

I don’t care that you’ve already watched every episode before. You must rewatch it. This is my go to show if I have no idea what to watch. It’s hilarious and Jim and Pam only get better every time I rewatch.

The Office is about a document of a paper company. It takes you through the lives of a small paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The fact that it’s based in Pennsylvania makes it ten times funnier because it shows how boring life is here. The characters are so thought out and the acting is just perfect. Everyone in this show is so funny and you will find one character that you just love the most. Mine, of course, has to be Jim. Watch the show to put yourself in a good mood.

4. Riverdale

I really didn’t want to like this show but, again, CW never disappoints. There is murder, a love triangle, and Cole Sprouse, what more do you need. This show is completely crazy. I binged the whole show the day it came to Netflix and not for one second did I want to stop watching. If this show gets canceled, I will blow up. It’s so good.

The show is based on comics, Archie. The show is based around a murder of the richest family’s son. They believed he just drowned in the river but it turns out he was shot and all the kids in town need to know why and how he was killed. While they are doing that there is drama with a new girl in town, a love triangle, Archie’s music career, and so much more.

5. One Tree Hill

Are you even surprised that I’m suggesting another CW show? I really really didn’t want to like this show but I was sucked in. The first few episodes made me want to die. Two half brothers fighting over a spot on the basketball team… such high school. But then Brooke was featured and she made the whole show for me.

The show is originally just about the Scott brother’s fighting over how Lucas got on the basketball team. There is a love triangle at first but Nathan falls for someone he never thought he would fall for. Brooke is just a slut in the first few seasons but she knows she’s worth more and shows the world that. Lucas fights for the girl. Peyton stays her badass self. I just can’t explain what the show is about. If you’re into drama, just watch.

6. Supernatural

This show has been running for years and there is a reason for that. The show just keeps blowing my mind. The love between Sam and Dean makes my heart melt. Castel is the most beautiful angel ever. Oh, of course, it’s on the CW.

Supernatural is so hard to explain. Sam and Dean hunt monsters, demons, the supernatural. But, then you throw in Heaven and Hell, the apocalypse, love triangles, sex, angels and demons, family, people dying, people being brought back to life. There is so much going on that you can’t stop watching.

7. Parks and Recreation

This show has to be one of my favorite shows of all time. It’s funny, relatable, and has a strong female lead. You wouldn’t think a show about the smallest part of government would be so successful but it’s amazing. It’s similar to The Office but I actually like Parks and Rec a little better. Andy and April are litereally Colton and me.

Parks and Recreation is about Pawnee’s Parks and Recreation department. You get to know all the personal lives of all the characters and grow to love them.

8. Jessica Jones

Surprisingly, this is the only Marvel TV show I enjoy watching. I recommend all of the Marvel movies but the shows that Netflix brings to life are just missing something. Jessica Jones is so good. I’m personally a huge fan of David Tennant and he did not disappoint as Kilgrave.

Jessica was controlled by Kilgrave to be in love with him. Even when she gets away, he finds her again. She then gets her revenge.

9. Girlboss

It’s a really funny show with such a strong female lead.

Sophia is in her 20s and can’t keep a job. She then buys a jacket at a thrift store and sells it on eBay for more than three times the amount she paid for it. She then realizes that it was her calling and she starts to sell vintage clothing online for a living.

10. Call The Midwife

Call The Midwife

This show is adorable and almost educational. You follow these few midwives around the poor side of the city and watch them deliver babies and help the families during pregnancy. I’ve just recently started watching it but I really like it so far.

11. The Royals

the-royals

This is not exactly on Netflix but it’s still an amazing show. You can find it on Amazon Prime, but it only includes the first two seasons.

It’s a drama about love, murder, revenge, and the royals of England. Every single episode blew my mind. It’s well written and the acting is just perfect. I highly recommend this show.

Summer Bucketlist

Summer, for some reason, is always the time people are making bucket lists. They think that this summer they are going to do such amazing and exciting things. Since I’m me, I decided to join the bandwagon.

Here are ten things I would like to accomplish summer 2017.

1. Spend more time outside

Yes, that is a little pathetic. I just happen to always spend my free time in my bedroom watching Netflix. Bugs and the sun just aren’t my friends. Being pale, I’m always sunburnt and have to wear a whole bottle of sunscreen when I want to spend time outside. Bug bite and fly around you and are just annoying.

2. Get in shape

This always ends up on my bucket lists but I never end up doing it. Honestly, I don’t see it happening this summer either. I think we all want that ‘perfect’ summer body. I just don’t know if I’ll have time between my summer class and working to actually properly work out. I do enjoy taking walks with my pupper but that’s again when I have free time.

3. Learn new makeup techniques

I’ve been completely addicted to watching makeup tutorials again. I love how people are so original and so creative. Makeup is a way to express yourself so that other people can see your personality or even just your talent. I try to branch out from my usual warm toned looks but it’s just what I go towards. I’d like to try more products as well. I’ve been using the same products for over a year and I have got too comfortable using them to branch out. I don’t like wasting my money on something that doesn’t work for my skin.

4. Have badass hair

I’ve already had badass hair in the past. If you know me in real life, you probably remember my pink hair, my gray hair, my orange hair, my colored bangs, my dark hair, my bleached hair, literally every color that exists has been in my hair. This summer I want to have rose gold hair and then when that fades I want just nice light brown hair with highlights. I’m so sick of having hair that only has one color in it. I feel like it’s bland and boring.

5. Go to one concert

I really want to see Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Fitz and the Tantrums, Glass Animals, Bruno Mars, Bastille, Katy Perry, Halsey, Milky Chance, Lady Gaga, etc. Of course, I work at a minimum wage job and won’t even be able to afford to go to one of these. I also have no friends who have the same music taste that will go to the cheaper concerts anyways. It’s always nice to dream though.

6. Learn how to put fake eyelashes on properly

This is probably the only one that I can actually accomplish. For some reason, I can never put on my eyelashes on evenly. I know it takes time and practice but I’m a very impatient person. I want to be able to slay like the makeup community.

7. Be a part of the makeup community

This is never going to happen when I, 1: I can never take nice pictures of my good makeup days. 2: I can’t do amazing makeup anyways. I really love makeup, ask anyone. I just will never be as good as these 13-year-olds on Twitter.

8. Redo my bedroom

I was actually going to do this last summer but never got around to it. I still need to take my old carpeting out and paint my walls. I bought new bedding and pillows last summer. I will gradually get there. I have a feeling that once I’m finished, I’ll be done with college and be moving to a city.

9. Learn how to make my own clothing

I’ve always wanted to learn how to construct my own clothing. I know it takes a lot of work and time but I honestly want to learn. I will be taking a clothing constructing class in the fall semester but I’d like to get a head start. I also have been watching coolirpa on YouTube. She really inspired me to try to transform clothing into something I would wear. PS: Check out her videos they will blow your mind.

10. Grow my social media

I’d really like to get back into Instagram. I used to post at least twice a week and I completely neglected my feed. I also would match my feed in some way, either by similar color or even filter. I just stopped and I’ve been losing likes and follows because of it. I’d also like to gain follows on Twitter to try and make it in the makeup community there. The most important field I’d like to grow is this blog. I’m already completely blown away how supportive people are but I’d love to get readers who aren’t friends of mine or people who I know.

I’d love to hear what you guys really want to do this summer. It’s a time for adventures, so take one.

Summer Adventure: Episode 1

Today my mother and I took a little adventure. I needed to return some textbooks I rented from Amazon so we had to drive to the nearest UPS, which just so happens to be next to the DMV. A little fun fact, I’m 20 years old and I have yet to get my drivers license. So, after I dropped off the packages, my mom made me practice parallel parking. The reason I don’t have my license is because I failed the parallel parking. I practiced about 5 times and every time I did it right. The problem I have is this little thing called test anxiety. I may know something but if you test me on it, I don’t get it right. I also had the worst instructor on this planet. I swear he psyched me out on purpose.

I asked my mom if she would mind taking pictures of me for my Instagram. She and I took a trip to the local campground and she took some shots of me by the lake. Taking pictures is always so awkward for me. One, I can not take pictures if other people are around. Two, I never know what I look like before the picture is taken. Three, I damn well know 90% of them are going to be so ugly because they are pictures of myself. This is why I usually stick to selfies but, as you soon will know, I’m very extra and I like to express that side of myself.

These are the ones that turned out okay. IMG_1082IMG_1165IMG_1088IMG_1177

I’m no model but it’s always fun to play pretend anyways. I completely apologize if you find me unattractive.

I just want to thank everyone that has been showing me support so far. Sorry, this is a short post but I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
