Hey everyone! We should probably start off this post with getting ourselves acquainted—My name is Mariah. I’m Mariel’s sister/ babysitter/employee and Jessica’s cousin. I’m eighteen and I love playing soccer, reading, playing the piano, etc. I’m so excited to get to write on this blog! Checking out what’s new on here has become part of my daily “computer routine”: Check my e-mail, check my Facebook, check “Or so she says…”. OK, now that we’ve established who I am and the awesomeness of this blog, let’s get started!

Once upon a time, I was at a church activity and we were planning on going on a bike ride. This wasn’t just any bike ride, however; it was a fourteen miler! As we began the treacherous journey, (which turned out to be not so treacherous—it was mostly just a flat dirt trail) I found myself riding next to a girl to whom I was not so ardently acquainted with—let’s call her Alexis. I struck up a friendly conversation, but as we were talking, I thought of the “Six Ways to Make People Like You” principles. “Why not make her a friend!” I thought; so I evaluated what I knew about this girl, Alexis. I knew she loved horses and that she was a cowgirl—true blue through and through.
