I am a super positive person

Remember how I recently promised that blog post of positive things that I like?

Sometimes I start writing and it’s all normal and then before I know it I’m just ranting about things and in re-reading some of these posts I was like…hmm maybe I should in fact be ~posi vibes only~* on here, you know?

So I’m going to write about things that I like rather than things that I hate. I promise, there really is a lot in this world that I get jazzed about.

To start, here are some of my favorite words and phrases:

  • The empire on which the sun never sets

  • Cherry

  • charms (but I only like the word when it’s a lowercase “c”)

  • Honeymoon

  • Wildest Dreams

  • Always

  • Glory

  • French Vanilla

  • Blood diamond

  • Fabulous

  • Shannon

Yes I like the sound of my own name! I mean, who doesn’t?

Also the phrase “the empire on which the sun never sets” is one of my all time favorites.

I like female friendships

I really like when girls have close female friendships - I think it’s one of the most beautiful things out there when girls are so close and they’re at this stage in between sisterhood and dating. I know that sounds weird, but I just don’t know how else to put it.

With a close female friend you guys can spend the day together and dress each other up, people watch for cute boys, do their hair if it doesn’t look good the first time, cry to them about something sensitive, share some insecurities you both have, take photos of each other, make homemade cocktails and gossip, just…everything.

You can’t really get so touchy-feely with your sister, and you can’t really get as boy-crazy and insecure with your boyfriend, I don’t even really know how to phrase it but a close female friendship is just so incredibly special to me.


The current state of my room is kicking, straight kicking!

I recently bought a metric ass-ton of plants from Greenery in the East Village, have sheets from YoHome (they are heaven to feel, just pure heaven) and I like to hang out in my room with the AC on, my Bose headphones playing some Zero 7, just smoking from my weed pen and stretching and putting on lotion.

It’s actually a really good time, despite how lame it sounds when I re-read it above. I highly (haha, pun intended) recommend it.



I’ve talked a bit before about how much I love this subreddit but last night (yes, maybe in my YoHome sheets with headphones on and a weed pen next to me) I was literally crying with laughter from some of their posts.

This one really fucking sent me in particular. Please watch it hahaha.

Without making paragraphs, the rest of things that have me happy lately is

  • Hanging out with Clara and turning on “the bird channel” for her cats and then watching her cats watch the screen where a bunch of birds fly around. It’s adorable.

  • Mallomars are back in season baby and I’ve eaten more than a box of them already.

  • I saw a girl I follow on YouTube with my own eyes on Friday night and almost talked to her but I didn’t.

  • I bought a tanning mitt that makes it a lot easier to self tan which seems like a small thing but for me it is huge

  • My brother changed his Twitter handle to something related to Jeffrey Epstein so now 2/3rd of all McNamara’s on Twitter are officially Epstein Truthers

  • I also went to Epstein’s mansion on Saturday night in the Upper East Side. Rang the doorbell and nothing happened, but woah was it cool to see it in person.


Damn there we go! Some positive things that actually weren’t even that hard to come up with.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post of happy feels, and now I’m going to get back to drinking with Jenny. I’m actually in Brooklyn right now as I type this…and since this is my positive-only blog I will say nothing else about Brooklyn :) Haha.

Ciao for now,
