Well, hello there friends!

For those of us that find ourselves on the east coast, namely the sunshiny state of Florida, hurricane Matthew is coming in hot like a perfectly glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut!

However, hailing from the north, I know jack squat about these bad boys. Seriously, the closest thing I got to one was a measly tropical storm passing through Massachusetts as I then proceeded to place a laundry basket over my head and crouch in a corner of my house.

So!

I did what every millennial does in times of trouble and googled stuff. Here’s what I got.

Hurricane Supplies Checklist:

  1. Water. I guess that’s important, to make coffee and such.
  2. Food. Yep, another biggie. Definitely stocking up on Boom Chicka Pop and avocados.
  3. Alternative power sources. Basically, charge your electronics NOW and have lots of candles and a lighter/matches nearby.
  4. Cash. Who carries cash these days??
  5. First aid kit. I have bandages and Zzzquil. I’m good.
  6. Waterproof mascara matches. This is a thing?
  7. Personal hygiene. Dry shampoo, tp, face masks. Got it.
  8. Battery-operated radio. LOL.
  9. Dry clothes and blankets. Ain’t no water getting in my closet. And this is Florida, what does one need blankets for?
  10. Shutters/storm panels. Um, I don’t even know what to do with these.
  11. Entertainment items. Homework! Lots and lots of homework!
  12. Patience. This is my favorite one.

I think it’s safe to say I’m pretty much a pro now at dealing with hurricanes. Jk, I’m still a hot mess.

Stay safe fam.

Welcome to Wanted and Wild, a blog about, *drumroll please*… feeling wanted while still being wild.

For those who haven’t stalked me on social media yet, my name is Priscila Silva, this blog’s fearless writer (jk, spiders freak me out). Honesty is a great place to start and i’m gonna keep it 100: I really had no desire to start a blog since everyone and their mothers have a blog these days, BUT! I am taking a class in Uni this year which basically forces me to make a blog or else I fail šŸ™‚

So here we are. What an adventure this will be! I promise I’ll have decent things to say every once in a while, so stick around. Stalk me on theĀ gramĀ if you haven’t already.

peace in the middle east,

-PriscilašŸ’«
