Major Change.

When I say major I mean it in both senses of the word. Major as in it's a huge change and Major as in, it's my major that I'm changing. Recently, I have discovered that Architecture is just not for me. I like it, really, I do, and I'm good at it but right now at this point in my life it's not worth it. I don't have the drive that I need to get through it and I don't feel as if I could do this for the rest of my life. But no worries, I have a backup plan! I fell in love with my Anthropology class, seriously in love with them, and I've always loved History! So I'm going to combine the two! I'm going to major in History-Seconday Education and Anthropology. Yes, High School teacher. I want to be able to make as big of an impact on kids lives as my teachers made on mine. So, we'll see how it goes.

Spoiled? Maybe slightly.

Have you ever been accused of being spoiled, even if someone's joking just a little? Well, I have been and I admit it...I'm slightly spoiled. Only slightly though. It's not as if even though my boyfriend lives an hour and some minutes away that he comes in every weekend...or that I get to Skype him every night. Or the fact that my friends are always willing to help me out whatever I need, whenever I need. So maybe I'm a little spoiled. (:

Lift Ellie Up

Back on June 23rd, I came across the story of Ellie Potvin, an 8 year old who fought for her life and lost. She was strong, amazing, and beautiful. Here is more information on her if you'd like to help support her cause: 

Supporting the Lift Up Foundation

This summer, we offered fine art giclee prints from three of my Angel Series paintings to raise funds to support of eight-year-old cancer fighter, Ellie Potvin.  We also reproduced limited edition prints of three of Ellie's own paintings, together earning over $15,000 for the Lift Up Ellie Fund.

Now as a fundraiser for Amy Potvin's new 501C organization, 
Lift Up Foundation, we will continue to offer these limited edition prints this fall.  Fifty percent of proceeds from Angel Series prints, and 100% of proceeds from Ellie's prints will benefit other families struggling with pediatric cancer.

By popular demand, a new edition of Ellie's "Blue Moon" print is now available.  Find that and the other prints 

Thank you for your support...Ellie will always be 'An Angel in Our Midst'.

Got a Secret, Can You Keep It?

Postsecret is an ongoing site dedicated to sharing secrets, anonymously. It is possibly one of my favorite sites in the entire world. Seeing other people's secrets, sometimes your own if you send one in. It gives you a sense of community, especially when you can relate to others. Check it out! (:

Recently, I convinced my friend to get a kitten. She lives in an apartment behind her dads house, so caring for the kitten is no big deal. She was a little skeptical when she first brought her home, but she quickly fell in love with her. Our entire friend group loves her. She's like our little baby. At times, she's evil and terrible, but most kittens are. She has stolen my heart.

So last Friday was our Grub. For those who do not know what that is, it is pretty much a giant dance party for my sorority. Grub stands for Girls Round Up Boys, which means I got to bring my boyfriend, E. It was so much fun to actually be able to bring him out and do sorority things with him for a change instead of just having to meet new guys and make friends.

My friend A and I got ready together in my dorm, and then went over to the house together. When we got there it was pretty much like mass chaos. The theme for Grub was Reality Check, which meant dress up as any reality TV show characters that you wanted. Well, A, myself and our dates E and T all dressed up as construction workers from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I created shirts for E and myself and then we paired it with jean shorts (me) and khaki pants (him). We each had an apron, a paint mask, and a red bandana to go along. Now, usually the girls will make party mugs, however, I've been so crazy busy lately I didn't have what did I do instead? I made a party pitcher....yes, a pitcher. Got it from the dollar tree and then decorated it sillily and just filled it with candy.

All in all, I would say it was a successful night!

Get Down With the Sickness...

So it's finally Friday. The morning of GRUB, the morning before the first LSU home game, and I'm getting sick. It's just my luck too. I'll still make it out to Grub tonight and probably end up spending all day tailgating then to the LSU game Saturday. I'll pay for it Sunday, though it will be so worth it.

Little Boxes Made of Ticky Tacky

...little boxes all the same. Oh, boxes, boxes, boxes. For the past two and a half weeks whenever someone asks me "Hey! What are you doing" my response has been building boxes. Now this may sound really easy, arts and crafts right? Wrong. If you assume that you are 200% wrong. The technical term for what we've been doing is "creating space". Now, please don't ask me to try an explain because I've tried...many times...and each time ends in someone turning their head sideways, smiling and saying..."oh!". It's okay, I know you have no freaking clue what we're talking about. Now these boxes aren't just little boxes, they're intense. Pull your hair out, want to scream, get two hours of sleep a night if you're lucky intense. Like below, only with cardboard.

Say What?

blog board.jpg

Someone asked me the other day, why do you have a blog? Not in a mean way, just in an inquisitive way. I guess wondering why keep something so silly and trivial. Well, after careful consideration and thinking about it, I came up with this answer: My mother. It's a way for her to keep up with me, see what I'm doing, what I'm thinking and what I'm interested in without me having to call her everyday or send an email. I love my mom, and so this is really just for her. If you follow it and like it, most excellent. If you don't like it, it's all good as well. The only person that I care if they dislike or like it is my mom. (:

First Week or Two

Last week went by really quickly. Monday I had work & class all day from 7:15-4:30 (a full day, to say the least), and then I have sorority meetings on Monday at 6pm that usually last until 7:30-8. Then on Tuesday's I go to class/work from 8:30-4:30, so Tuesday's aren't usually that bad. Then on Wednesdays I only have class from 9:30-10:30 then 12:30-4:30. Thursday's I have class/work from 8:30-6 (again, not really that bad since I'm at work from 12-6). And on Friday's I have another long day with class/work from 7:15-6pm. Plus in there I have to find time 5 hours a week to go to this thing called mathlab (which isn't open on Saturday's, and only open on Sunday's from 5-9). But again, it's not really that bad. I'm keeping busy to say the least. (: 

As far as classes go I absoltuely love my Architecture class. Although it's the most stressful thing in the world, I love it love it love it. We went to class on Wednesday and got a project due Friday. I had to stay in the Studio on Wednesday from 12:30 (when class starts) till 5:00 the next morning, in which I got my entire project done so it was worth it and I didn't have to go in on Thursday. We then got another project on Friday that was due today (Monday). I only had to spend a few hours (from 9pm-3am) in the Studio on Friday and then another few hours (8pm-12pm). SO it's been interesting. 

I love love love both of my Anthropology 1001 and 2015 classes. 1001 is an Introduction to Physical Anthropology and then 2015 is an Introduction to Archeology. Both of my professors are really awesome. I actually know people in both classes as well. I think I may end up minoring in Anthropology, but who knows we shall see. 

Math 1023 is not my favorite class in the world but I need it (yay pre-cal) -_-. It's not that it's difficult but it's just aggravating trying to remember everything and pretty much teach myself. Plus the whole being in mathlab for 5 hours a week isn't the most fun thing in the world, but it's all good. 

So all in all everythings been going really well. I'm finding time to eat at least one meal a day (one huge meal at that) and megan and I are getting along really well. I like having a busy schedule because it keeps me busy (haha) and it's good to have time's in the morning when I'm forced to get up and go to work but we're not crazy busy so I can get a lot done. 

Work is going really well. Now that the first week of school is over we've slowed down a little bit but it's not been too bad! I still sometimes don't know the answers to questions but it's okay because I'm still learning. I get along with everyone here really well and all in all it's just a fun place to work ! (:

KAT. That's what I am. I did it. I went through rush and stuck with it. At first I was still a little weary about it. I mean, really? More girls. More than half the houses I went through I couldn't really feel myself there. A lot of the houses were typical "sorority houses". I was like Oh HELL no. However I went through Kappa Alpha Theta and Zeta Tau Alpha and felt instantly at home in both houses. In the end, my choice was to go with Kappa Alpha Theta and I couldn't be happier. It's not like a typical sorority. It's crazy laid back and just a lot of fun. I love it.

Busy doesn't even begin to describe what I've been lately. Ever felt like a chicken running around with it's head cut off. Welcome to my life x's 10000000000000000. I'll get back to posting soon. <3
