February’s Playlist

It’s been awhile since I have done one of these, so here is what I have been listening to lately!!!

  1. The Kids Are Alright – Chloe x Halle: As if these ladies aren’t already killing it on Grown-ish their music is insanely good! This is not the last time you see there names pop up!
  2. Waves – Natalie Major: This song was on the first episode of Grown-ish and I instantly wanted this song as my ringtone, I’m still waiting!
  3. Last Day Alive – The Chainsmokers (ft. Georgia Florida Line): A great song to get you pumped for the day or if you’re already hyped!
  4. The Greatest Showman Soundtrack: Do I need to say more?
  5. Real Friends – Camila Cabello: I can really connect with this song on some many levels and I think a lot of you would agree with me!
  6. What About Us – P!nk: My favorite powerhouse song that makes you want to get up and out and do something about life!
  7. Finesse (remix) (ft. Cardi B) – Bruno Mars: I have no reason it’s just bomb!
  8. Fall – Chloe X Halle: Told you
  9. Broke – Lacrae: ” Being broke made me rich!!!” I went to his concert a couple weeks ago and he was crazy good at getting the crowd hyped as much as his album does in private!
  10. TKO – Justin Timberlake: This one kinda resurfaced after the super bowl performance, was and still is my favorite JT song for me!

I turned 17

Recently I’ve turned 17 years old and it made me realize that I will never get a do-over on 16 so I started to think about the things I have learned from 16-year-old Mya.

  1. Growing up isn’t all that great! I made this pretty clear in my last birthday post but  I’ll say it again. ” I wish I was 7 years old all over again.
  2. Be proud of my mistakes, at least now I know how to avoid them and that alone will make life just a little easier.
  3. Appreciate what I have while I have it.  The realization of me never being 16 again just hit me like a ton of bricks and to that, I say ” Here to only being 17 once”
  4. “Friendships cause heart breaks too” – Wolfyla
  5. When you feel conflicted, fix it.
  6. Procrastination is the devil.
  7. Never assume anything, do your research.
  8. Apparently, I NEED to work out and make it a lifestyle.
  9. You don’t need to prove yourself to anybody.
  10. You can live without the people who don’t have time for you.
  11. I’m not alone.
  12. Comparisons are the worse things to do to one’s personalities.
  13. I can live without sugar and I really don’t want it.
  14. A part of me will always want to play softball.
  15. I need to travel or try something new to live.
  16. 16 doesn’t last forever.
  17. Family is everything NO matter how far away they are.

Why I Went Vegetarian (Short post)

 

Hello World Wide Web of beautiful people.

For three years now I have been slowly cutting meat out of my daily diet. Even though I still get tempted to have a McDonald hambrger, I can now claim the vegetarian title. Except on thanksgiving, that’s too much. 😉  In the past year I have been able to make vegetarian meals for my family and myself, which I’m extremely proud of . Since it’s summer time I’ve been craving a burger or a hotdog at cookouts. Fortunately thanks to the internet there is always a vegetarian option and alternative.

It’s been really hard to not eat meat in the past two years. Fortunately  my family has been really supportive, which makes meat less tempting .

I have noticed certain changes about myself. For instance, my senses of smell have become extremely sensitive to certain meats and unpleasant fragrances. It has gotten to the point where I am nauseous at the smell of bacon.

That’s not why I’m writing this. I guess I’m writing this for me. So I can finally put the reason why the change of diet into words.

My family’s health has become a concern after my dad became an Insanity instructor. We have cut a lot of processed food out of our lives. Because we would read articles about how “such ‘n such” could cause cancer. When we moved to Italy, I saw how clean the Italians ate and I wondered why is America so accepting of all this junky, greasy food that won’t spoil for weeks or maybe even months. Where as it for the Italian’s food would spoil in a couple a days.

People would ask me why.   Why are you switching?   Why are you giving up meat?   As if it’s inhuman.   This in fact is I didn’t give up meat.   I gave up the thought of greasy, fatty foods as normal, because it’s not.

I’m not saying I’m never going to eat at McDonalds ever again or having a slice of pizza. Seeing it’s 2016,  and the idea of having no time to make healthy meals has been sold to this generation and the next. At least I know now.
