Many MINIs Motoring To The Mighty Mack

A sense of belonging - one of mankind's most-basic and innate desires as people go through life. Being a part of something and having connections with other people gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling that you can't find anywhere else. Some people find it within their role at work, others seek it out within a church or political setting. It can be found in dozens of obvious places, but one place you might unexpectedly find your group is in the motoring world. Enthusiast groups exist across the whole spectrum of the automotive world - no matter what brand you drive, you'll probably find a group of like-minded driving fans to bond with. 

That said, however, no motoring group in the world is quite like the fandom that is MINI Cooper drivers. Hi, my name is Jami, and I am a proud MINI Cooper owner and Extraordinary Miniac. 🙋🏼‍♀️

The Importance of Writing For Yourself

Totally and completely mentally blocked, that’s how I feel right now.

Hello again, friends. You might have noticed I’ve been away for a while. Sorry about that - but I really appreciate you sticking it out with me. Which I’m assuming you have if you’re reading this now. I promise I won’t be MIA forever and I’m not at a loss for words, but rather just feeling lost on how to say them. I did, excitingly, post a new update all about my visit to Jacksonville, Florida recently, which is worth a view and can be found here.

Where I'm At

Holy shiz, how is it nearly March?

I’ve seen a lot of other bloggers that I follow - and for the record, I follow a quite a few - do cheeky little blog posts just updating their readers about their life and what’s to come. I’ve done a few heavier, reflective life updates in the past, but never have I just sat down and written as if I were speaking to a friend about what’s up. So, here I am. 💁🏼‍♀️

14 Non-Verbal Ways They Show You They Love You

As many of you know, I live with my boyfriend, Ethan. We’ve been living in our cute little apartment together in Eastern Michigan for about 6 months now and wowza has it been a wild ride.

In so many ways, he is the perfect roommate. He’s tidy, he’s quiet, and I adore him, so cuddling and watching tv on the couch on weeknights is the best thing ever.

But living with a boyfriend is, of course, a culture shock of sorts.

I'm Detoxing - Week One

I'm detoxing and it sucks. Seriously, it sucks. Don't worry, I'm not detoxing from drugs, just donuts… For the last week or so, I've been on a no sugary foods diet. I have not eaten or drank one sugary thing since last Monday and I am both suffering and supremely proud of myself simultaneously.

I'm A Quitter

I’m a quitter. There, I said it.

I have quit on - not everything - but most things that I’ve tried in my life. I’ve given up on so many dreams and plans when the going got too tough. I’ve ALWAYS been a quitter. I quit Girl Scouts in the 2nd grade. I quit volleyball in 3rd. I quit classes when they were too hard. I quit clubs that made me feel out of place. I even quit on career choices and life goals when someone else told me I couldn’t do it… I think you get the picture.

100 Questions No One Ever Asks

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and shared a few things about myself for you all to enjoy. I love being really transparent and open and I truly get a kick out of answering some of the silly questions that linger around in the cybersphere waiting to be answered. So I thought on this fine evening, I’d sit down and take part in the 100 Questions Tag that has gone around the internet one or two times.

I Believe in the Power of Setting Goals for Yourself. What About You?

I believe in New Year’s Resolutions. I believe in fresh starts and new beginnings. One year has passed and no matter how wonderful it was, there were always lessons to be learned along the way. When a new year is upon us, I always take a solid look at my life, my attitudes, and my behaviors and think about what things I’d like to leave in the old year for the good of the order. I make promises to myself to change things that I don’t like or that I don’t think suit me and my life anymore - and I when I make promises, I make damn sure to keep them.

Dear 2018, It's Been Real. K. Thx. Bai.

I say a lot of things in my day-to-day life - most of them completely true. Sometimes I exaggerate, sometimes I gloss over the nitty-gritty, but don’t we all? Where I’m going with this is that I wanted to make sure you all know that each and every word I leave here for you to read is as true as can be said, when it’s said.

25 Things I Should Have Learned By 25, But Haven't

Oh my god, it's my birthday. And I'm a quarter of a century old. I'm so calling BS on this.

Once you hit your mid-twenties, aren't you supposed to be wiser and more mature? Each day I wake up and still feel like a teenager or younger! I still make the same mistakes that I've been making my entire life.

Maybe, This Time, Popular Opinion is Right.

I’ve never been one for fads. I know they pass and I have very little interest in being a follower. Especially when the fad goes against my very being. Like gaucho pants… I haven’t a clue who thought those were a good idea, but the thought of them still haunt me to this day. They just go to show that popular opinion is NOT always correct.

52 Things That Top My Pet Peeves List

I have a lot of issues with a lot of things. Pretty much everything irritates to on some level.

As you might have guessed, I’m not much of a people person because of this. Once, at university, I was challenged to make a list of all my pet peeves and read them aloud to a group. I filled a page and then some; people were getting bored listening to them by the end.

See You In the Next Quarter, Friends.

It’s November. How did that happen? Where did 2018 go? Sometimes I feel like one blink and a massive chunk of my life is gone. *poof*

It’s been some time since I updated y’all on my life, and what better time than the present, right?
