With a new year, comes brand new news. As of right now I've decided to take a break from this blog, actually shut this blog down and create a new one. Not for the new year, but maybe for around it. I'll be back! Just under a new blog name, new blog and hopefully more, new ideas! 

Music of the Moment: The Postal Service

Today: Something not Christmas themed. I hope you all had an amazing holiday!

Merry Christmas!


Today is Christmas! We always spend the mornings opening presents at my dads, drinking coffee, and watching cartoons. Then around 10-11 we head down to New Orleans to go and open Christmas presents with my dads side of the family and then eat a large lunch! I'm so excited. Do you have any Christmas traditions?

Merry Christmas Eve!

Today, it's tradition to go to my moms house and open presents and then eat a big meal and watch A Christmas Carol. I can't wait! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve as well!

A Balancing Act

For me, college is a balancing act (sometimes even quite literally). I have two jobs (one that is on campus during the school days) and one that I work mainly weekends on (and sometimes I go in when they need me), I'm in a sorority (with meetings once a week, not including other activities going on), I always take anywhere from 17-19 hours, and I'm planning on joining (and being very active) in two clubs next semester (History and Anthropology club), and I have two majors and two minor, so sometimes things can be a bit crazy. People look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I'm crazy busy. But honestly, I love it. I've made so many friends and it's kind of crazy but so much fun. 

I would be at a loss if it wasn't for my iCal and my iPhone syncing up my schedule, along with writing all my assignments to do down in a full page planner (everyday), and my Self Control App. These few things help me stay on time, organized and focused toward a main goal. 

Another thing that really helps me is that I have a regular routine. Once the semester begins, I have a set schedule each day and I know (usually two weeks into the semester) exactly what I'm doing or where I need to be. By doing this, I'm not as stressed when it comes to what to do during the day. 

Being OCD when it comes to grades. I came to college for a reason. I want to graduate and get a really good job with whatever I end up doing with my life. Having two majors and two minors leaves little room for error in my classes, so I am always on top of my grades. I make appointments with teachers when I need to and I'm even on first name basis with my academic counselors.

    True or False?

    When it comes to college, there are a few things that people told me that I wish I would have known they weren't true. Such as: 

    A lot of roommates spend a lot of time with each other. This is so false in my sense of the terms. I knew my roommate going into college, and while it wasn't a pleasant experience, it wasn't awful (until the last few months anyways). I've even seen seen some friends who room together in the dorms, and while they spend a lot of time in the room together, outside of that not much time was spent together (it was more of a "okay she's there, let's hang out" thing). 

    College is super hard. While yes, some classes are more difficult than others. College in general is not hard, it's just a different style of teaching and learning you've been used to for the past 16 or so years of your life. Just remember to plan ahead and always, always keep a calendar of when things are due! You'll be fine. Take a deep breath and just jump in! 

    Meeting new friends will be instant and easy. I'm out going, really out going (I'm in a sorority for heavens sake). But this doesn't mean that meeting people was necessarily easy for me to do. I met a ton of people during Rush Week, Move In Week and Freshman Week my first semester here that I began to talk to for a while and then things just fizzled out. It's all about taking time to make a good friendship with someone!

    You  have just as much responsibility as you did in high school. So False. It's not that you don't have as much, but it's that you have so much more. Everything is your choice now, and you don't have Momma and Daddy right behind you telling you what to do. You have to make all of the right decisions (and some of the wrong ones) to figure out how to be on your own and still do well in school. 

    Remember, College is so much fun and you'll love it (or you'll hate it) but it's something that you have to figure out for yourself. It's not something  you can just shrug off and forget about. College is a time of growth and new-found freedom. Take it all in and just run! You'll be glad that you did.

      Wallet Wednesday

      I don't know about you, but it feels like I've been in the search to find the right wallet for a while now. It's so important to find the perfect wallet because you use it so many times a day! Personally, I prefer a neutral colored wallet that will zip closed. 

      Some things that I always consider when looking for a new wallet are: 
      The Size: I prefer a logn wallet, that won't crumple my money. I carry it in most of my bags, except for small purses. God only knows what kind of things I plan on shoving in there at last minute, so it's important for it to be a little bit bigger.

      The Currency: I don't like my dollar bills folded and I want a separate compartment for coins and a separate compartment for receipts. 

      Card Storage: I like a decent amount of card storage,even though I don't carry around many cards. This is because if I do acquire more cards, I don't want to have to stuff each slot with more than one card and cause them to stretch out.

      I haven't yet found the perfect wallet, but until I do, I'll keep looking.

      College Clothes!

      When it gets cold outside, I have about three outfits that I normally go to, other than when I'm just being completely lazy and wearing tights with yoga pants, and an over-sized t-shirt. 

      Layers: Begin by a tank top or short sleeved shirt and go from there, then maybe add a sweater, with a cardiagan and a jacket with leggings under jeans with socks and boots. Trust me, you'll be thankful when you can take off layers for the scalding hot temperatures inside classrooms but can layer stuff back on to go through the arctic tundra like weather outside.

      Always wear a scarf/hat. I'm naturally cold, so beginning in October when the weather even hints at dropping below 80 I'm in a scarf of some sort. There are so many different types/materials that scarves come in so you can always try different looks before finding a signature one!

      Keep your summer clothes out during winter season. Now you may be looking at the screen and thinking, WHAT?! But really, wear a summer cut dress with a pair of thick leggings underneath and pair with a pair of thick high socks and you'll be good to go! Don't forget a nice jacket and cardigan as well!

      Boots, boots, boots! I love boots, so when the weather begins to change, I'm all about breaking out the boots. During this time, it's really important to buy a nice, comfortable pair of boots and scotch-guard them if they are not leather so they don't get messed up easily!

      Julep!


      So, there's a website called Julep, which allows you to take a style quiz and then tells you what kind of inner beauty you have. I took it and it came out as American Beauty. I've contemplated doing this before, but I'm not sure if it's really in my best interest right now to be spending $20.00 a month, every month on new beauty products that I may or may not like. I'm going to think about it a little more and then decide!

      Broke? Me Too.

      As I'm sure we're all aware of, college is expensive. Now, I don't know about you but I spend a pretty decent amount of money on books and other school supplies, much before even thinking about the other bills and such I have to pay. I have two jobs that most definitely help out with all my expenses, but they're not "real world jobs", so they don't pay for everything. Especially during the winter season, with Christmas drawing near, I find sometimes it's difficult to get everyone the gifts that you want or go out and do everything that you want. But! I've compiled a short list of things that 9/10 times you can get at least a discount on! 

      Free gym membership! Okay, so it's not technically free because it's paid for in your student fee's but you can use it whenever you want! Our Rec is awesome, and they always offer so many classes. This year, I did a few pi-yo classes and even a zumba class or two!

      Sickly Centers: Okay, so it sounds so much better than Health Center or Infirmary. We have doctors and nurses there and it's always the closest thing to go to when I'm sick or have cuts (I like to call them battle wounds) from walking around on campus during game day. 

      Cafeteria Food: Now, I hate cafeteria food, but sometimes it's just too close to pass up on. Plus, it's there for you (and sometimes you need a little junk food). 

      Movie Tickets: Most movie theaters, or at least all the one's that I have been too, offer a student discount. It isn't much, but sometimes all you have is $8 in your bank account and you really just want to go see a movie. It's worth it, I promise. 

      Major Electronics: Being in college, it's always a good time to buy electronics. Why, you may ask? Because of the ridiculous discounts that most offer. My MacBook Pro was  a lot cheaper, and I got it with a printer and an iPod touch. Plus, the university provides us with the necessary tools for our computers for class, like Microsoft programs, so we don't have to buy them!

      Things I'll Go Home For

      I'm 19 years old. Living [on my own] with two roommates in an older house right off campus (read: 10 minutes away). Now, I go to college in the town that I grew up in, on the opposite side of town but in the same town none-the-less. Now that I've been in a house by myself (with no parents to care for my every whim and need), I've realized there are things that I most certainly take for granted while living at home.

      The heater. I live in an older house, one that is not particularly well insulated and we only turn our heater/air conditioner on every now and then (so we don't run up our electricity bill). We've invested in heating blankets, lots of socks, sweatshirts, and most definitely tights. It'll be a long winter, that's for sure.

      Free food/pre-made meals: Now, I've cooked a decent amount of meals at the house, but nothing is as good as coming down the hall to a home cooked meal. I truly miss my mom and dads cooking when I'm stuck at the house/in a massive state of doing homework/studying. It takes a lot more effort than I ever imagined just to make dinner for myself.

      Cable. When we moved into the house, we chose only to get internet (mainly because I'm paying for my own bills and cable is expensive). I don't watch T.V. at all really now a days, simply because we don't have cable, but when I go home I love just to see what's on.

      Music of the Moment: Ellie Goulding

      As I go into this dreadful week, finals week, I will continuously have Ellie Goulding's album Bright Lights/Lights on repeat. Recently, she did a live performance that I found on youtube. I love her rendition of this song.

      Happy Thanksgiving



      Hey y'all! I'm sure by this time I have gotten seconds and am sitting on the couch getting ready for the LSU vs. Arkansas game with my family. I just want to wish y'all a Happy Thanksgiving and hope that y'all are having such a great day! Today, I'm thankful for family and friends who I get to share everyday with and so thankful to go to a great college and am getting a wonderful education. What are you thankful for?

      In Preparation: Turkey Day


      This year for Thanksgiving my little sister and I are going to my moms house. (My parents are divorced, so every year is different!) Hopefully, we shall see my older brother there as well, he's a chef and works a lot...BUT regardless, I'm so excited to spend tomorrow with my mom and family there. It'll be a little dinner with delicious sides and turkey. 

      Today, however, we're spending time preparing all of the food for tomorrow; the sides at least. This is the first year that I'm going to actually help her and I cannot wait to learn the recipes like she cooks them.  Although the cooking won't be as extravagant as the picture above, it will be so delicious. I hope y'all have just as much fun and good eating as I will tonight!

      Exam Help!

      So, I don't know about you, but the most awful/greatest time of the year is quickly approaching for me finals week. It's awful because it's finals week, it's wonderful because it means a close to a new semester and my favorite time of all Christmas. Now finals usually sneak up on me, but this year I'm planning ahead. For me, finals count for a pretty considerable amount of my grade so it's good for me to get as much studying done as soon as possible, even if it does mean starting this week. 

      Tips for preparing and acing the finals that are fast approaching: 
      1. Start preparing now. Luckily enough I'm so insanely OCD that I begin preparing for tests as soon as I have them down on my calendar, which sometimes may mean as soon as I get my syllabus. I was lucky enough to go to a private catholic school that taught me how to study and prepare well for tests. So I start by making myself a schedule of when I'm going to study at least two weeks before I have finals. On top of that I print out all my notes, reviews, lectures, etc. 

      2. Stay healthy! Oh dear, just don't get sick. I would rather be sick all of Christmas break than the week before finals week or the week of finals week. So, stay as healthy as you can! Get a full nights rest, especially before your finals, make sure you're eating right and exercising and if you need to take vitamins!

      3. Stay organized. The more organized you feel, the better you'll do (at least it goes for me anyways). Print out a schedule, get a desk calendar, or even a hanging wall calendar. Make sure you have all appointments, classes, work schedules and other fun things all planned out ahead of time. Make sure that your closet, desk, room and bathroom are organized. This way you'll be able to find everything you need quite easily!

      4. Take a break! This is possibly the most importnat one of them all. Take a 30 minute break every now and then. You don't want to overwork yourself. Make sure you go outside, do yoga or even just watch an episode of your favorite show!

      Music of the Moment: Wagon Wheel

      And this week, I give you Old Crow Medicine Show's rendition of Wagon Wheel. 
      Why? Because this song has been stuck in my head for the past three weeks.

      Nicki Minaj & Opi

      You may be thinking, now what in the world do these two things possibly have in common? Well Nicki Minaj recently teamed up with OPI to release her own line of colors and I must admit I kind of like them. Now I love nail polish, but can not exactly afford to spend $7 a bottle every time I want to buy one, so buying a new nail polish is really like a treat for me. Take a look at the colors below!

      Vera Bradley: Wish List

      I have several frivolous loves, one of them just happens to be online shopping/lusting. Recently, I signed up for Vera Bradley emails. Probably one of the worst decisions of my life. I'm slightly obsessed with a lot of their things. Things included on my wish list this winter season: 

      This Large Duffle Bag: 


      This Small Duffle Bag: 


      This Hanging Organizer: 


      You may/may not be able to see that I adore all kinds of luggage/overnight bags, maybe even to the point where it is a little bit excessive.

      Music of the Moment: Florence + The Machine

      Recently Florence + the Machine released their second album. It is absolutely amazing. It's a little bit darker than the past album and can really make you think. Here is one of my favorite songs, so far

      11/11/11

      Today should be simple, peaceful and wishful. Why, you might ask? Because it is Friday. Not only is it Friday but it's 11/11/11. So take everything in today and smile. 
      I leave you with one of my favorite pictures, ever. [It is from a friends wedding I was a bridesmaid in].

      Hadley




      I am a member of the website Just Fabulous, which is a website that you can sign up for and they send you a pair of shoes each month for $39.95. Now, being a broke college student, although I have signed up for this website I have never actually bought any of the shoes. I have not even really considered buying any of them, until they sent me the picture of the Hadley. I fell in love with these shoes. I do not know if it is the pink or the little girly bow, but for some reason I lusted over them. I am still toying with the idea of buying them, but considering the fact that I am going to Atlanta in December I really need to save up.

      Keep Calm and Carry On


      Am I the only one who loves that phrase? Even if so, it's compeltely true. I find that whenever I get stressed out, especially during midterms or finals week (or those weeks where all professors give me three thousand things to do) that there are at least two things that help me stay calm: a clean desk and yoga. Let me explain:

      Keeping a clean desk: In order to stay calm, having a clean desk and clean surroundings always helps. Try and keep a calendar with all of the deadlines you have, any to-do list and organize your desk every night. This helps to make sure you won't miss an assignment, or lose a paper (trust me, I've done it before. Not fun). Keeping a clean space will help you stay relaxed and not stress out.

      Yoga: Try it. Trust me. It is SO relaxing. Just take a 10-15 minute break from homework and do a few yoga poses. It will help you feel so much more invigorated and so much more relaxed. It's been shown that inverting your body so that you pelvis is higher than your heart is very tranquilizing.  Don't forget to breathe deeply!

      The American Adulterer


      On our trip to Disney World I took it upon myself, when I wasn't driving, to being reading again. I love to read but taking 19 hours at school at working 23 doesn't allow me much free time as I would like. Even when I do have free time it is mostly spent quickly grabbing a bite to eat, studying or sleeping. Anywho, back to the point. This book is a fictional book about JFK's time in the White House. Personally, I adored this book. I am in love with the time period and the Kennedy's in general, so this was perfect for me. 
      The book describes the way in which Kennedy dealt with his medical conditions while in the White House and the various relationships that are formed because of it. If you don't know too much about the Kennedy's before you read it I would suggest doing a little bit of research before hand. Overall I really enjoyed the book, and I got it on sale at Barnes and Nobles one day for very cheap. All in all it's a very good read.

      Never Gonna Give You Up



      Once upon a time I drank coffee like it was nobody's business. Then the unthinkable happened. I gave up all forms of caffeine, especially coffee (reason being I was way too dependent on it to keep me awake/not grumpy). So after about six weeks of caffeine headaches, I did it! I was home free. Now, don't get me wrong. I still love coffee, and drink it sparingly but now I drink tea more often. Obsessed, just slighty. But a slight obsession is good every now and then, right? After spending more money than I would like to admit on tea and coffee from random places such as PJs, Starbucks and CC's I have finally invested in random teas from different stores. Now that I have a plethera of tea, it will actually be the new challenge to wake up in the morning and make it myself, rather than to buy it at school.

      Annnnd I'm back!

      Slowly but surely I'll be back, updating regularly, back to reading my favorite blogs, etc. This semester has been kicking my butt, to say the least. I'm taking 19 hours, working 23, just got a second job (for the weekends), in a sorority and trying to fit in family time and boyfriend time. Needless to say I've been great at organizing everything in my life (hello OCD), but my poor little blog fell on the back burner. Soon I'll be updating on my life and every little thought that comes to mind. 

      In the mean time I'll leave you with this: 


      Friday, August 19, 2011

      Oh!

      Bid Day is Saturday. I'm probably pretty excited and frustrated and exhausted right now. I can't wait.

      School Time!


      Class beings in four days. I cannot wait for it to being. Honestly, I love summer but school makes me happy. I'm waiting for football games, Theta events, and even trips to New Orleans. So. Much. Happiness. ANNNND Holidays are coming up soon!

      Happy Birthday, Dad


      Today is my dads birthday. So, Happy Birthday to you Dad. You're not 49 years young!

      Monday, August 15, 2011


      Elliot, on the left, when he had short hairs. (: And his best friend Hill, who is now one of my best friends. He lives in New Orleans, an hour and a half away. Every now and then I miss him but then I remember he's doing what he loves. So I'm trying to be more knowledgeable about Film & French, both his majors. Maybe I'll be able to learn French, on top of Italian. But my focus right now is on Film. I don't understand much about it, honestly, I like going to movies for entertainment. So, to try and learn more about it by downloading the /Film podcast and even checking the website every day! I don't know if he knows yet but I try and leave little hints that I'm trying to know. Even if he doesn't it makes me feel better that I can understand a little more about it.

      Birthday Weekend!

      [Last year I was rushing on my birthday as well, but we had a joint party for my friend and I]

      So it's almost my birthday weekend! I like so say that it begins on Friday. The actual day is Saturday, the 13th. Even though I'll be rushing girls on my birthday I still have to figure out something to do. I'm thinking dinner with friends and family or maybe just my family and boyfriend. I can't wait. One last dinner with the boyfriend before he moves back to New Orleans for school.

      Gotta Make A List?

                

      Lists are possibly one of my favorite things in the world. I have lists for everything; lists for what I need to do, school work related and sorority related, lists of things that are going on in the next month, grocery lists, time management lists. You name it; I might have made a list for it. For some reason, just getting organized helps me relax and feel better!

      Otter Box


      So I have an iPhone. I love it to death, I really do. Sometimes, it's even my life savior. However, now it is broken. I played with the cover for the headphone jack so much that it broke. It still works perfectly fine, but I'm terrified that it's going to let water in or something along those lines. Let's just say I don't have the greatest track record with phones. The otterbox has saved my phone. I've accidentally thrown it a few times and nothing has happened to it! If you have an iphone, even if it's a little bulky, I strongly suggest you buy one. Completely worth it!

      Tom, tom, tom, tom, TOMS!



      Everyone should go here and check out the shoes. The story is truly amazing. For just $40.00, well around forty dollars, if you buy a pair, you give a pair to a child in need. 

      Friday, August 5, 2011

      Let it Begin!


      And it begins! Rush beings well tomorrow/next week, and with that comes the responsibility. SO I will be taking a break from all electronics for two weeks! I'll be back the Sunday before school starts. In the mean time, I've scheduled a few posts to keep things moving!

      One Year Later




      Today, Elliot and I make a year. I think that speaks enough for itself.

      Recently Seen

      So I've seen two movies, a while back, that I haven't blogged about...BUT now I am, and so it's forgiven. The first movie that I've watched was The Business of Being Born: 


      I loved this movie. It's about the different types of birthing and the different experiences. It goes to show how birthing is a business. It starts Ricki Lake and her experience as well as a few other couples who decide how to give birth by themselves. It goes behind hospitals vs. home birth. It gives you a lot of information of how everything works. It's mainly focused in New York City. I say watch it, especially if you're expecting. 

      Next, I saw Babies:


      I loved this movie, absolutely loved it. It's a documentary filmed all over the world in different parts of different oceans. It goes to show you the beauty and the dark side of the oceans. It's a gorgeous film. You get to see so many unique creatures and they tell you about them as well. I would say watch it just because of how pretty it is.

      To Rush or Not to Rush?

                  Deciding to rush was one of the hardest decisions I had to make in High School. I went to an all girls, private, catholic high school. When I say the majority if not 75% of my class rushed, I’m not exaggerating in any sense. We graduated with 211 girls, at least 75 of them rushed at my college only and got into the sororities they chose.

                  At first my decision to rush was a silly reason, I wanted to move into the dorm early. I just couldn’t wait to get out the house [now I kind of miss it]. Then when I really thought about it, I came up with the reason I wanted to rush was because I wanted to meet new people. I’m a people person, no doubt, but at that time I just wanted to meet so many new people. Little did I know what the summer had waiting for me.

                  All in all, I’m so happy that I decided to rush. I found a great fit with the sorority I’m in now. It may seem silly to think that there’s a huge group of girls that I can call regardless of what time it is for help. Honestly, I wouldn’t trade my experience for the world.

                  Something that you must remember though is that you’re doing it for you, not for anyone else. My biggest piece of advice: don’t let others influence your way of thinking. Don’t let them put ideas into your head, because at the end of the day you have to be happy with the decision you made.

      Alive.

      I'm back from Manchester. Bonnaroo was amazing. Everything I hoped for and more. Now, I need a break. Two more days of work (after today), and then I have another 4 days off. For now, work and then cleaning.

      The Final Day: Roo Day 4

      Today is the final day at Roo! We're expecting to see: 

      Smith Westerns:

      Day 3 at Roo!

      Today is the third day at Roo! Today we're looking to see: 

      Old Crow Medicine Crow: 
      I've heard really great things about them, so needless to say I'm excited to see them!




      Portugal the Man: 
      So. Much. Excitement. I feel that's all I should say. 




      Mumford and Sons:
      I've seen them once already and they were perfect then, so I can't see that anything less would happen this time!




      The Black Keys:
      I like them a lot. I've heard a little bit of their music and it's really good! 




      Possibly Eminem... 
      If he plays his old music, it'll be good. I haven't heard his new stuff. So we shall see...



      And either: Girl Talk, Gogol Bordello or STS9
      I'm obsessed with Girl Talk so I would love to see him. But these three all play at the same time so it'll really be up to the group and see!

      Girl Talk:



      Gogol Bordello:





      STS9:

      Grace Potter:

      Florence and the Machine: 
      So. Much. Excitement. I cannot even explain to you how excited I am for this. I lvoe Florence. So much. Honestly, going just to see Florence and the whole camping thing with friends would be enough for me! 




      Primus:
      I have no clue about them. They're just one of those random bands that I decided would be cool! 


      Arcade Fire:
      Oh my gosh. Elliot's favorite band, well one of them. I like them a lot. They're amazing. So excited to see them as well.

      So Close!


      So today is the day, the day before we leave to go to Roo! I am so freaking excited to spend the next six days with some of my closest friends getting to know them better and getting to see a lot of our favorite bands! We've done the shopping, gotten my dads tent all checked out, and packed my bags! Now the only thing left to do is to pack up all the cars and head out on the road! I've got a few scheduled posts for when I'm gone and cut off from everyone and everything.

      Grey's Anatomy?


      At work most of the time it's really slow...we may have 6-7 phone calls a day. So since it's during the summer we usually just watch movies, or listen to music or play games. The catch, you can only have one earbut in and it can't be on your "phone ear". Silly, but it helps and works very well. So this summer, I'm trying to watch Grey's Anatomy. My dad loves this show and when I was home with him I used to watch it. Now, I'm rewatching it and catching up on the seasons that I didn't see. So far, so good. I'm on third season as of now. I still hate the people that I hated then but it's all good.

      Wedding!



      The middle dress is the Bridesmaids dress for my friends wedding! They actually look really good on all the bridesmaids, and they're super pretty! I'm so excited to see one of my really good friends finally marry her fiance! They're so good together and are absolutely adorable. Although it's a stressful time for all of us, we've all managed to calm her down and let her just have fun with it!

      Wednesday, June 1, 2011

      Life as of late has been crazy busy. And when I say busy I mean the busiet I've been in a very long time. Like Finals Week busy. I've been working for the last 10 days  straight, which doesn't sound like much but it is a lot. I work at least 6-8 hours a day, on the other side of town. Work, I can handle by itself, but everything else is what kind of makes me crazy. 

      In the next week I have a wedding rehersal and dinner, a wedding, to pack for Bonnaroo, meet up with the guys and discuss Roo plans, go grocery shopping for Roo, work 30ish or so hours, be IN a wedding on Saturday and maybe sometime sleep in there....I know, doesn't sound like much but I also have to take care of the kitten that my sister decided she wanted then stopped taking care of it. 

      Yeahhhhhh. So tonight, what am I doing? Going home, trying to pack for Roo and spending time with that silly boyfriend of mine [trying to catch back up on Dexter, of course].

      Fill in the Blank Friday

       
       Oh you know, just a normal Friday night with friends
       
      1.   If I could get away somewhere for the weekend I would go      to my grandpaws camp in Cocodrie, because it is the most wonderful place in the world  and I would bring     friends and family, that way we could make so many sweet summer memories.

      2.  Something I often rant about is   little things that annoy me sometimes. Like the way people drive, especially here in Louisiana. ITS. SO. TERRIBLE.

      3.  One item I need to have in my fridge at all time is     pickles. I love love love them...a little to much.

      4.  My "life-saving" product is  chapstick, because I have this really terrible habit of biting my lip.

      5.  A friend is someone who     knows just how terrible you can be sometimes but loves you anyway.

      6.  If I could write my own blank it would be    the one person I want to see/meet more than anyone in the world right now _______ .

      7.  My favorite kind of art is       photography.The simple way that a camera can capture an image is so breathtaking. Photography is a beautiful subject that moves me more than anything else.

      The Best of Friends


      This song has been the soundtrack of my life for the past few weeks. I love it. My friend Crabs (nickname, of course) introduced me to Bon Iver last summer and I completely fell in love. Which brings us to this sumer. Although summer just began, I've already had some of the best nights of the year. A few days ago a group of six of us met up at Coffee Call, our favorite hangout for beignets and coffe, and just sat around and talked for an hour or so. After that, we all piled into one car and just drove. Drove around the city without a destination. We drove for at least an hour or two. Six of us piled into one car and just sat and talked and laughed. Words cannot even explain how much I love these people and what I would give to spend everyday all summer with them.

      A Weekend Full of ......

      Movies! This weekend not only did I see Bridesmaids but I also saw Pirates of the Caribbean 4. My friend Cab is obsessed with the Pirates movies so when this one came out it was a no brainer that we had to go see it, at the midnight premier no less. And Elliot (boyfriend) really wanted to see Bridesmaids, so who I was I to say no! First things first, Pirates


      This movie was actually a lot different from the past movies. In this Pirates, Captain Jack Sparrow and Barbarossa race to find the fountain of youth. Blackbeard and his daughter are also in the race. It wasn't as funny as I thought it would be, but I still enjoyed it. I had a few questions but it isn't something that could easily be pointed out; little things really. However it does have some similarities. Although Orlando and Keira aren't in the movie there's still a love story. All in all though I really did enjoy the movie. 

      Up next: Bridesmaids


      Let me just say, I had no idea what this movie was going to be like. For me, it was one of those movies that looked good, but I wasn't sure that I really wanted to see it. I am so glad that I did. This movie was sooooo good! Basically Annie was picked to be Lillian's maid of honor out of a group of very different women. This movie will make you laugh so hard and make you want to killl one of the girls! All in all it was a very good weekend filed with movies, laughter and friends. 

      Now back to work D:

      Summer, Summer, Summer!








      The best thing about summer is the free time, hands down. This summer I plan on spending my free time (while at work of course) on pinterest, reading books [and hopefully putting a dent in my Barnes and Nobles wishlist], perfect decorating cookies and cakes, learning how to sew, knit and cross stich, and finally having fun.
