Is My Best Friend Better Than You?ย 

Hey y’all! I am currently in Bear Lake aka the best place on Earth! But this time my dad’s siblings came along with LAURENNN!  Right now we’re laying down with the softest blanket because our toes are freezing. 

Anyways, as I was reading posts I saw all about how Fibit, Elm, Sav, and L were hanging out. And I said how it’s not fair I don’t get to meet bloggers because they all live in Europe or the other side of the freaking country. 

So Lauren laughed at me because she’s a jerk. Just kidding (although she just barely called me a jerk so….)  But because I am sooo nice I said that it was okay because I had her. And she goes. “Yep, I’m better than them anyways”. 

BTW right now, she keeps saying she hates me for telling all of you 😂😂 Apparently I’m an eye-hole  (That word is copyrighted by her btw) 

Anyways, I just found it hilarious. What do you think? Comment down below!

5 Scientists Killed By Their Own Inventions: A Guest Post!

Hey guys! I’m super excited to be doing my first guest post on AKA The Author! This post was written by Madeline from The Talk With Moi, make sure ya go check it out ๐Ÿ™‚ And here we go!


When we think of scientists, we think of those old guys with crazy white hair exploding everything. Now that is so far from the truth. Scientists go to work to figure out stuff and make the world a better place which can sometimes put them in a dangerous situation. Today I want talk about 5 scientists who were killed by their own inventions.

1. Scientist dies from blood transfusion while trying to achieve eternal youth
Alexander Bogdanov was the co-founder of the Bolshevik Party with Vladimir Lenin, but he was later kicked out. Now of course like any man who gets kicked out of his OWN party does, he switched to medicine. While he was pursuing his career in medicine, he tried to create a universal science discipline called tektology but of course that didnโ€™t work. By 1920 one experiment caught his eye, and that experiment was blood transfusion. He wanted to achieve eternal youth by having multiple blood transfusions. By his 11 transfusion, he claimed that his eyesight was improved and his baldness has stopped, so he continued. Sadly, for him one of the blood transfusions was from a student who was suffering from Malaria and Tuberculosis. The irony of this story is that the student who had Malaria and Tuberculosis made a full recovery.

2. Marie curie dies from exposure of Radium and Polonium.

Marie curie won two noble prizes for her discovery Radium and Polonium which led to the discovery of X-Rays. Her discovery of these elements meant that she spent hours and hours exposing herself to these deadly chemical which eventually led her to die of Leukemia in 1934.

3. A French inventor creates a parachute clothes
A French inventor named Franz Reichelt invented a parachute that is on your clothes. Now to test his invention he climbed the Eiffel tower, because jumping from a safe height is just unheard of. Now as you might have guessed by now his invention didnโ€™t work, so he plummeted to his death, and no there was no way he could have survived that. I donโ€™t understand why scientist feel the need to take things to the extreme. My sane self would have probably used a dummy, because 1) Iโ€™m afraid of heights and 2) It is dangerous! And if you all were wondering if they have a video on that just go search it up on YouTube. This one actually made me really sad, but I was kind of relived when I learned he died of  a heart Attack during the fall instead of dying from the fall itself. 
4. Died from a printing press

William Bullock is the inventor of the web rotary printing press. One day William was trying to โ€œkickโ€ the driving belt onto the pulley, but sadly his leg got caught in the machine and was crushed. Nine days after this horrible incident, Doctors were trying to amputate his let but it had infected with Gangrene.

5. Strangled by ropes

Thomas Midgley Jr. was an American engineer and chemist who developed additives for gasoline as well as 100 other inventions.  Sadly, at the age of 51 he contracted Polio which forced him to a wheel chair and unable to get out of bed without help. Of course like every great scientist he didnโ€™t let his disability get in his way. He created a system of pulleys with rope that would lift him of his bed without any human help. Now this invention worked, but on one fateful day the ropes on the pulleys entangled him and he was strangled to death.
Now this really makes me wonder what would the world be like today if these scientists havenโ€™t died. Would we be able to achieve eternal youth or at least partial youth? Or would we have parachute clothes? Let me know in the comments below.

Thank You Note To My Mattress

Dear mattress,

I know we’ve only known each other for a few years, but I feel like I know you really well. I always enjoy the long hours we spend together each night. When I’m gone on vacation, I dream of you…. Memory foam, comfort, and warmth. But mainly home.

Thank you for always supporting my weight, on the hard days and the good. Thank you for countless hours where all I do is push you down. Especially when the memory of my shape left a mark in one side of you so I had to move to the left.

And thank you for soaking up my tears after everything that happens. For always providing a place that I know won’t let me down.



Well, guys. This was obviously sarcastic.. but truthful if that makes sense? Anyways I hope you all enjoyed this quick, different post!

AND once again, I have some serious news to share, but I’m not really sure how to say it.. Do you guys want to hear it? Should I share? What do you think?

How To: Survive A Day Of School [Told By A Baby Elephant Rights Activist]

Hey y’all! So I know it’s taken me forever to get this post up, but it’s finally here! Make sure to follow, like, and comment I love getting to know all of you!

And here we go:

Object 1: Food

The first part of this is to bring some sort of breakfast if you don’t eat in the morning. I grab things like yogurt and breakfast bars, muffins, etc.

The second part, is snacks. Snacks are essential, and I can’t stress that enough. Goldfish are my personal favorite, but anything works. Just keep them in Ziploc baggies in your backpack, and you’re good to go!

Object 2: Headphones

This one isn’t as necessary, but in classes where it’s allowed I love jamming out while doing my work. *Cough* debate *Cough*

Object 3: Phone Charger

Somehow, my phone always loses charge during the day. I plug it in during our TA period and whatever other classes I sit by an outlet in.

Object 4: Gum

I love, love, love, having gum at school. You just can’t really tell anyone that you have it xD Greedy suckers always asking for my last piece ๐Ÿ˜‰

Object 5: Cell phone

Okay, so as much as I love talking to my friends during class, I use my phone to look things up, check my grades, and ask about assignments.

These are a few tips:

1. If you have certain classes on different days (My school has A & B days) then only take your stuff for one day to save your back.

2. Always keep a easily accessed pocket filled with a pen(s) and or pencils.

3. If you’re absent get those assignments ASAP.

4. If you can’t figure out something then look other places.
Does the teacher have a website?
Do you have friends who take that class?
Can you find the answer online?

5. Realize that you have questions NO ONE can answer. And that all the things you’ve been learning are almost completely useless.

6. And then cry, just like you did last week when you had the same realization.

7. Then have the other identical realization that you have to just get over yourself because it’s only three years.

8. Then cry because it’s only three years and your not ready to grow up yet. College sounds exciting, but a day job? Not so much. *Shivers*.

9. And finally, once someone notices that your having a quarter-life crisis make up some stupid excuse as to why you were crying.

10. Smile crazily at this poor person you previously gave the excuse to because apparently the fact that parent elephants can’t pay for theirย  baby elephants to go to the doctor because they fell off of their unicycles isn’t sad.

Hahaha hah well I hope you liked this. The first part is serious btw, but I like how the second part ended.

Love y’all-Aspen AKA Baby Elephant Rights Activist ๐Ÿ˜‰
