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.

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.

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:

Roo Day 2!

Today is Day 2 at Roo! Today we're tenative to see: 

Either Grace Potter and the Nocturnals OR Matt & Kim
I haven't heard much about them, but they both sound really good from what I've heard.

Grace Potter:


The Decemberistis: 
People call me crazy, but I'm not a huge fan. I like them, but they make me sleepy! Still excited, nonetheless.

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! 

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.

Big Boi: 
I don't know much about him but Elliot loves him so it's all good. It'll be a good show!

and last but not least: Ratatat
So excited for this one as well! This should be such a good show. So. Excited.

Today at Roo

So while I'm gone I'm going to do a day-by-day of who we're going to be seeing. Of course this is only tenative and we may completely change our minds by the time we get there. So! Off we go!

Today hopefully we'll be seeing: 
Best Coast: 
I'm actually really excited about seeing them. My friend Jeffrey is completely obsessed and he's played some really awesome stuff for me!

Sleigh Bells: 
I like one or two of their songs but I think that Elliot is more excited about them. 

and Deerhunter:
Honestly, I know nothing about them. Haven't heard any of there music or anything. BUT Elliot loves them, so that's good enough for me!

Big Day

Today's the big day. The cars are packed, we're all ready to go. So very excited. Can't wait until I get there and experience everything firsthand! Although the line will be crazy to get in, it'll be so worth it! It'll be a lot of fun and I can't wait to share it with you!

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.

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!

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].
