This article is for facetious purposes only. If you get offended easily please do not continue reading as I do not care about offending people and WILL call you a crybaby. If that sentence offended you well you are a crybaby. If you do not follow these instructions and continue reading neither Dawson nor I will be fielding text messages or phone calls about how you are offended. You were warned off in the second sentence.
Dawson told me to write an article about my time at Mcdonald’s explaining how people can sometimes be the absolute worst customers so here ya go. First off you know I can’t tell a story without some background. So I graduated high school early in December of 2019. My parents’ rule is that if you are not going to school you need to get a job and pull your own weight around the house. Totally agree with that and it’s probably why I have the work ethic that I do. So it is February of 2020 (right before COVID hit) and I get a job at Highway 55, work there for 2 days and my manager stole all my tips so I quit real quick and got a job across the street at Mcdonalds carrying on the family legacy (my mom worked there during college).
Many people already know but if you don’t know Dawson and I got married on December 17, 2022! We got engaged on December 24, 2021, and very soon began wedding planning! Me being the extra person I am, I just had to have a winter wonderland wedding, plus with me still being in college it was the most convenient time to have our wedding and honeymoon. We found a venue pretty quickly and if anyone ever wants to get married in Carthage, TN in a barn go to River Pointe Ranch, they are amazing and help make your day so special!!
So Dawson convinced me to get another Australian Shepherd except this one isn’t a mini. We were driving down the road on our way home from my parent’s house when I showed him this picture of this dog. He immediately is like I want, and I am trying to figure out if we can afford it (we can) and he calls the breeder and reserves her. Now a lot of y’all might think we are crazy that we are getting two Australian Shepherds, might hate the fact we’re doing it while I am still in college, or might hate that we still live in an apartment. Well, listen here 1. Mind your own business and 2. You don’t know our situation.
A few months before my birthday Dawson decided he was going to buy us Morgan Wallen concert tickets and see him on my birthday. Since we have been together I have been begging him to take me to a Morgan Wallen concert. I love his songs solely because they make me feel emotions. I know that sounds cheesy but I wanted to go because Talkin’ Tennessee was one of the first songs Dawson sang to me in my dorm room when we were hanging out. He would always tell me that he loved me more than his hometown. AND finally, Redneck Love Song was our favorite song to listen to when we were driving at 2 AM on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
To put it simply Morgan Wallen’s songs tell the story of our love story. So my birthday comes along and we go to see him. We got the VIP passes to the lounge which I couldn’t enjoy the full benefits of because I am not 21 but it was still a fun time and I got to eat cookies! We then made our way to our seats and honestly, they were probably the best seats in the entire arena. Larry Fleet opened first and as Dawson said in his article covering this concert, I wish I had done more research on him and learned some of his songs because he was actually really good.
This article is going to include details of how I convinced Dawson to let me and others start writing and get more involved in the Ok Listen Here platform. This story starts back when Dawson was a senior in college and he had just gotten this platform up and running. He had asked me to write an article about the experience I had growing up going to OU games. So I took about 20 minutes of my time while he was on the phone with his mom to write up an article. He posted it and the next day it had quite a few views. From then on he would ask me to write articles and I would occasionally do so but was soon running out of topics to write about.
As most people know who frequent this page often, Dawson and I are engaged and have been for about 7 months. We got engaged when I was 19 and he was 22 and now we are 20 and 23. The road that we have traveled has been full of bumps and it hasn’t always been easy to overcome the controversy surrounding us. By controversy I mean people thinking that I am too young to be getting married.
Going into college at eighteen years old I had no clue that I was going to meet the love of my life. They always tell you in high school to never date a senior when you are a freshman because you are inexperienced with love, they are in different parts of their life than you, etc. Well take it from me, be cautious about it but if you find someone you are interested in, here is your sign to go for it.
Yes, I am a social work major and no, I don’t go around with a backpack snatching babies from their families. So this article is a bit personal and about my journey to finding my passion.
I have to preface this “Sydney Chronicle” with when I was a kid I was a very imaginative little girl and I still am. Everyone in my family always told me that I would end up being a writer and well Ok Listen Here gives me that outlet. So now on to this crazy story. When I was about 3 years old Hurricane Katrina hit Mississippi and me and my family went down there because my uncle lived down there. I don’t remember much from this trip but I do remember that while we were there, I found my dragonfly family.
