A&A



Awkward
  • Being called pretty several times by the bus driver on the way to class. Flattering? Yes. Creepy? Pretty much.
  • Sitting in a lounge and reading between classes only to have a group of guys come in with drums and bongos and have a jam session in the middle of the lounge, then silently leave 5 minutes later. Good for you for expressing yourselves, but you couldn't have found somewhere else to do that? Like maybe somewhere that isn't crowded with studying students? Just a thought.
  • Tom's face in this picture...Photobucket...Or maybe that's just awesome.
  • Waking up to cold, rainy weather several days in a row after having warm, beautiful days for a while- Nothing makes me want to curl up in bed and watch movies more. 
  • Having today and tomorrow off from work- It's nice to have a break, but I like my job. I guess that's more awesome than awkward...
Awesome
  • Getting beautiful birthday roses from Boyfriend Photobucket
  • Being all moved into our new office at my internship, and having our team growing and becoming even more fabulous than we already were
  • Having a wonderful time in Missouri with all of my amazing friends over Spring Break- More on that later!
  • Having a $50 Visa gift card that I am waiting for the perfect opportunity to spend :]
  • Getting to skype with Tom- It was the perfect way to end my night! 
  • Having lunch with an old friend
  • Richard winning Top Chef last night- The best chef definitely won!

Thanks, Facebook Friend.

This just popped up on my Facebook newsfeed:

"True love is marked not by the amount of time you spend together, but by knowing nothing will change while you're apart."

So true. And I still need to hear it once in a while.

All About Me from A to Z

I got this from Sara over at You, Me, and Anthropologie.

A. Age: Just turned 21 about 2 weeks ago!

B. Bed size: I have a twin bed at my mom's house and in my dorm room, and I have a queen at my dad's. I'm meant to sleep in a queen-sized bed, just saying.

C. Chore you dislike: I despise putting sheets on the bed. Future husband, that's totally your job. I'll gladly fold your shirts in return.

D. Dogs: I have two: a black lab named Chloe and a bichon frise named Carter. I love them to death. I can't wait to have my own dog in my own place. I would love a french bulldog.

E. Essential start to your day: Hmmm a nice hot shower always wakes me up. I never feel like I actually start my day unless I take a shower.

F. Favorite color: Yellow

G. Gold or silver: I'm loving rose gold right now.

H. Height: Somewhere between 5'2" and 5'3"

I. Instruments you play(ed): Nothing anymore. I played the oboe throughout middle school, and I can tinker on the piano, but that's not really playing, per say.

J. Job title: I'm a full-time student and a copywriting intern at a marketing company!

K. Kids: Don't have any, don't want any...right now.

L. Live: The Lone-Star State

M. Mom’s name: Meryl

N. Nicknames: I don't really have any legit. nicknames. I have a few pet names from certain people, but nothing really serious.

O. Overnight hospital stays: The only time I stayed in a hospital overnight was in pre-school when I was hospitalized for dehydration and a virus.

P. Pet peeves: Way too many to name. Seriously.

Q. Quote from a movie: "If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on."

R. Righty or lefty: Righty

S. Siblings: 1 brother and 1 sister

T. Time you wake up: Today I woke up around 7:30, although I was supposed to be up by 7. The time I wake up changes from day to day.

U. Underwear: I wear them.

V. Vegetables you don’t like: I can't stand corn and peas. Gross.

W. What makes you run late: Me! There are just some days when I can't get out the door on time no matter how hard I try.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Dental, foot, elbow, wrist, head, and probably a few others

Y. Yummy food you make: I really can't make much. My goal this summer is to learn how to cook!

21

I am officially a 21 year old!!!

In honor of this very important birthday, I have come up with a list of 21 things I want to do and accomplish before my next birthday.

  1. Graduate from college- I can't wait to check this off the list!
  2. Take a vacation (even a mini-vaca) with Boyfriend
  3. Have an adventure- I have a few ideas in mind
  4. Learn to cook, and actually be decent at it
  5. Figure out what I'm doing with my life after graduation- It's so much easier said than done.
  6. Build (or at least start) a real, grown-up wardrobe
  7. Learn the ins and outs of personal financing- My dad handles all of the actual paying of my bills, etc. and, at my age, there's no excuse for that.
  8. Travel somewhere amazing
  9. Read...books...for...fun- It seems like such a foreign concept, yet it's something I really enjoy.
  10. Try a new hair and makeup style
  11. Volunteer for a worthy cause
  12. Take better care of myself (eat healthier, work out more, get more sleep, drink more water, etc.)
  13. Be more positive and less judgmental- I feel like the two go hand in hand.
  14. Kick this bad procrastination habit I've developed
  15. Purge my closet and get rid (donate or sell) of the things I no longer wear
  16. Be more independent in pretty much every way
  17. Write for more outlets than I already do (apply for more positions, submit more writing samples, etc.)
  18. Do a cleanse- I know it sounds weird, but I'm actually really curious about how cleanses work and what the benefits are. If anyone has done one that really worked, let me know!
  19. Really make an effort to get to know people in the UNT community- I'm still that awkward transfer kid.
  20. Go camping, like, legit. camping (or something as equally out of my comfort zone)
  21. Limit checking my social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter, Blog) to 3 times a day- Aim high, right?

  • This outfit, but more so this picture Photobucket
  • Having a chemistry test and a Spanish midterm on my birthday (not really awkward, just unfortunate)
  • Getting the opportunity to chat with someone from USA Today College, setting a time, and then realizing (once they asked if I was online yet) that 5:30 in Dallas is not the same as 5:30 on the East coast
  • The girl that sits in front of me in class who insists on using a LOUD, handheld, electric pencil sharpener everyday while the teacher is talking

March Daybook

Head on over here to join in the Daybook fun!

FOR TODAY
Outside my window...is a slightly sunny/slightly overcast day. The weather is odd at the moment.
I am thinking...about the paper I need to write that is due tomorrow.
I am thankful for...my friends and family. I'm constantly reminded just how wonderful they are.
From the learning room...is a whole lot of stuff going on this week. I'm a paper and two tests away from spring break!
From the kitchen...I don't have a kitchen to report about.
I am wearing...olive green skinny cargos, a long-sleeved black shirt, my gold glitter TOMS, and a multi-chain necklace. I feel like I'm wearing something fashionable, but I'm not sure I can pull it off.
I am creating...nothing at the moment. I haven't been crafty lately.
I am going...to work in just a little while.
I am reading...Topdog Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks for my English 3000 class.
I am hoping...that I don't go to bed late tonight.
I am hearing...someone walking down the hallway past my room.
Around the house...is usually busy, but I'm not there right now.
One of my favorite things...is sushi! I'm really in the mood for some. Maybe a birthday dinner?
A few plans for the rest of the week: get through my paper and tests, pack up what I need for spring break, work, and celebrate my 21st birthday!!!!!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...The agenda for my birthday. Bleh.Photobucket

Awkward and Awesome



Awkward
  • My RA is super nice, but also super awkward. He came in to do the monthly (or weekly, it seems like) safety check of my room, and ran into the wall on his way out because he was walking backwards to talk to me. Like I said, super nice, but super awkward.
  • I have been so weepy lately. Seriously, a heartwarming commercial or song can just put me over the edge. A guy dedicating a song to his wife on the radio actually made me tear up in my car last night. I don't know what's going on with me, but at least I've been alone every time it's happened.
  • My computer got a little sick (aka completely died) this past weekend, so I had to make the dreaded trip to the Genius Bar at the Apple store. The whole system is weird. I get there, check in with someone who then has to struggle with his iPad AND iPod Touch combo which keep freezing up (awkward #1...I mean, we're in the store for crying out loud). Then, he informs me that he is going to look at me and type some notes about my appearance into his iPad so that the tech people can find me. Do I even have to mention how awkward that is?
  • Once the tech guy found me and was able to properly identify me, he just assumed that my computer was no longer under warranty. He was wrong, and my stepmom promptly told him so, adding that she has Macs that are older than him. A little awkward and a lot awesome.
  • My brother was awesome enough to lend me his computer while mine was being repaired, so I had to go through the process of setting up the internet to work in my dorm. Finally, I had to resort to calling the support line. After explaining what was going on, the guy on the other end told me to do a few things, which I did, and then told me the internet would work after I restarted the computer. No luck. I was so frustrated, so I called back, and the same guy tells me that he didn't give me the username and password I needed to connect. Thanks a lot, Apogee man.
  • I have seen the same commercial for Lumineers on TV at least 10 times this week. Dentistry is following me. 
  • We have weekly debates about controversial issues in my Spanish class. These are difficult not only because we are debating about tough topics, but we have to do it in SPANISH. The debate today was about marriage, specifically gay marriage, polygamy, and everything that falls into that category (children, religion, laws, and society). Talk about a doooozy.
Awesome
  • My mom got me a super cute cardigan. Just because. :]
  • I have girlfriends who allow me to complain and actually listen to me. It's a rare gift and every girl needs at least one. I'm lucky enough to have a few.
  • I'm also lucky enough to have a boyfriend who will stay on the phone with me (even if I'm not saying anything) just so he can try to make me feel better. I can get emotional sometimes (see above), and he knows all the right things to say. He wants me to be happy, and that is so beyond awesome.
  • I had a substitute in Chem. lab on Monday night. The first thing he told us was that the lab for that night was a long one. Then, he told half the class to do the first half of the procedure, and the other half to do the second half of the procedure. Once we were done, he told us to swap answers and peace out. Whatever you say, Prof!
  • Can I just talk about the GORGEOUS weather we have been having lately? It is perfect. I sat on a bench swing in the sun and read The Great Gatsby between classes yesterday. It doesn't get much better than that.
  • We talked about blogging in not one, but two of my classes this week. Enough said.
  • I was a total fatty last night at Chipotle. I had a buy one get one free coupon that expired today, so I cashed it in and paid for my two meals with my gift card from wonderful Boyfriend. It was a little awkward walking out with my two burrito bowls, but I had dinner for last night and have dinner for tonight for the price of one, and I didn't really even pay for it.
  • I will be 21 this time next week!!!
  • I got 100% on my chemistry exam. Heck yesssss!
