Weekend Update {4}

Friday – only a mere three days after classes started, I came on home so I could celebrate my Momma’s birthday. It was exciting to be there for her special day since I haven’t made it the past two years. My Mom is seriously the cutest, best, and youngest (looking and feeling) Mom I know. I just love my Momma!!

Saturday we went to Holiday World in Santa Claus, IN, where I was taller than all the rides. I relish this fact. 

They also had free drinks all day long. How awesome is that. 
And we saw and met Switchfoot. And Kutless. How. Exciting. 
Sunday was rather uneventful as we drove back all day. Seven hours of driving. Whoop whoop. I drove several miles on Low fuel though, which made me feel pretty risky and probably would have made my Pappaw a nervous wreck, if he knew.
I finally got all my school ish organized . . . and ate a delicious chocolate chip cookie 
Aaaand I did healthy food grocery shopping. I didn’t need a dozen eggs, but they didn’t have 6 eggs. So . . . I bought liquid eggs. Not gonna lie. I’m a bit terrified of them.

Psych! {5 Minute Fridays}

You know how sometimes you start your classes and you think Wow, I’m going to love this class. Then two weeks later you’re lying on your bedroom floor wondering where you went wrong in life to decide that taking astrophysics was a good idea? Yeah, I don’t think that’ll happen this semester. Mainly cause I’m not taking astrophysics. I’ll probably end up thinking a couple classes are dumb, or the people in the class will start getting reaaaaally annoying. But then I have to remind myself that I probably most definitely get on people’s nerves on occasion with my random awkward unfiltered outbursts. Or how much I say “most definitely,” which gets on my own nerves, actually. Note to self: continue to work on filter to save yourself from multiple embarrassing moments. And stop saying “like” and “most definitely.”
No, I think I’m going to love my classes, because most of them are psychology classes. This means no reading countless poems and novels, but lots of note taking and thinking. But this will be fun kinds of thinking, because as an inherently nosy person, I want to know everything about people, and now I am learning about people and trying to figure them out. As humans, I think we’re all armchair psychologists anyway . . . so this will be pretty exciting. From the few lectures I’ve already had, I can see certain attributes and models in myself. I’m resisting looking at people that I know, yet, because I just don’t want to psychoanalyze the world. Psychoanalyzing yourself though, that’s kind of scary. 
I’m just excited that I’m going to be spending the next couple years learning about how our brain works, and how I’m going to be able to help people, especially victimized women. 
P.S. The eye twitching went away last Sunday. But it mades its appearance, once again, while doing yoga this morning. It was accompanied by lip twitching, too. Yay.
I’m a big fan of this outfit, especially the shoes. But I’m not sure if I look like a hooker. Soooo yeah. Opinions?
Also, that is my unmade bed . . not my roommates. Ain’t nobody got time for that top bunk bed making junk.

Thankful Thursday

Folks, today’s round of Thankful Thursday is hard for me to write because I’ve just had a bad day. Not everything has gone wrong, but it all started when I woke up. Since then I’ve been feeling crappy and emotional since. (Mom, I know you don’t like me to use such language, but I cannot think of another word at this moment to describe how I feel, so I used the “c” word. Sawry.) However, despite it all. I still have a lot to be thankful for. 

1. I am thankful for maintenance men who run up to your room because your shower is leaking in the cafeteria and they fix the nasty lake of disgustingness. 
2. I am thankful for professors who genuinely care about students (or their hygiene), and offer the showers at their houses when they see pictures of showers like the one above on Facebook. 
3. I am thankful for the red squiggle lines on my computer telling me that I haven’t known how to spell anything without auto correct since the 8th grade.
4. I am thankful for suitemates and best friends who are sensitive to when you’re struggling and leave sweet notes with promises of fun times. 
5. I am thankful that I was able to do more a good amount of running and walking during my run today without my knee hurting too badly. Whoop whoop to healing!
6. I am thankful for food. Which I want right now. Cause I am hungry. Like normal.
7.  I am thankful for Dr. Pepper (which probably makes its appearance on my thankful list almost daily) because it’s probably going to help me through this 3 hour psych night class I have this evening. Which I am so excited for because it’s cool and interesting and yay. 
8. And lastly, I am thankful for the gorgeous sunset masterpieces the Creator paints for me almost every evening. Favorite part of creation – favorite part of my day.

I LOVE THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL (Nerd alert!)

Guys, I have a ridiculous amount of unread blog posts on my bloglovin’ feed that it’s embarrassing, and I know it’s only going to get worse cause like I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR INTERNET DIDDLES CAUSE I’M HAVING TOO MUCH FUN WITH LIFE. But I know that once the semester settles in, I’ll be back to avoiding studying like the plague and watching season after season of Netflix shows and catching up on my bloglovin list which will probably be like up to 39,786,092 unread blogs at that point. Oh, and I’d appreciate suggestions for new tv shows to watch endlessly!

Seriously so excited for school. I love school.

And here is why:

New planner. New year. I’ll fill it out religiously the first week and then lose it for the rest of the semester. P.S. We’re supposed to go to the Drive-In tonight to see Despicable Me 2. I heard a rumor that it is not Despicable Me 2, but it was totally on the Drive-In sign last week. So, if it is not Despicable Me 2, I’m throwing my coke at the screen. Just kidding. I can’t throw that far. 
Hellooooo new pens and pencils. Probably the best part of a new school year. Especially when they are purple!!!! 
Necessary first day of school selfie. Cue Rebel Wilson’s accent. Hello, fellas. Here I am. 
COFFEE. Need I say more? I had my Dominican coffee this morning in my literature mug, and then my purple thermos. I put International Delight Hershey’s Chocolate Creamer in it – yummo. I. love. coffee. And the color purple . . . can you tell?

I even woke up early, did a yoga work out with my suitey, and got to watch Boy Meets World as I got ready for class. 
It was perf.
I am so excited for school. I love to learn! 

So now I’m going to go try to set up a window AC unit cause my un-air conditioned dorm is as hot as the Mojave desert, and I’m going to do it sans the help of a man, cause I’m an independent woman, dangit! Thankfully no one is around to video tape this probable catastrophic event.

I Do (College Edition)

It’s the start of a new semester, which might mean new roommates and fun times. Here are some good ground rules.

I promise to . . .
  • Leave sweet pick-me-up notes lying around when you are having a bad day/week
  • Put the tv on a sleep timer if I’m going to bed
  • Never go to bed angry with an unresolved issue
  • Buy toilet paper luxurious for your bottom
  • Label my milk if I drink it straight from the carton
  • Wash my dishes right after I use them . . . or at least before I reuse them
  • Straighten things up on a regular . . . just be patient. Maybe I’m busy . . . watching tv. 
  • No pants nap time at least weekly (this one might be just for the married roommate college folks)
  • Restock the toilet paper if the roll is empty/we are out
  • Open the window of the bathroom and turn on the fan when I poop
  • Play techno music very loudly while I clean my room . . .unless you don’t like techno. That’s okay, too. Oh, okay. We’ll listen to classical music. Silence? Silence is fine, too . . . I guess.
  • Favorite movie/tv show time when you’re in a bad mood!
And more roommate vows from my sweet suitemate, Chelsea

  • I vow to always put the seat down…even after I poop
  • I vow to sing on the top of my lungs in your room so when the RA comes around i can run back over to my room and pretend like i didn’t do anything
  • I vow to always offer you cookies at 230am
  • I vow to come into your boring classes with a note from president Greer requesting your presence in his office
  • I vow to wake you up in the morning approx. 1 min before your alarm so you can wake up to something beautiful and not annoying
Happy semester!
