oh MY! this is my one HUNDREDTH post!!

i can't believe it.
i think blogs are *so* cool.
it's like these little pieces of your life that you otherwise wouldn't remember.
and now that there's blurb, you can make a book out of it!
a different form of scrapbooking... cool man!

recent and usual obsessions:
- publix spinach dip
- keeping busy, to-do lists
- tea
- glitter
- talking to family

sooo, this is going to be my last post.. this address! hehe. come on, i just raved about blogs and how cool they are!
not a big fan of this server anymore, though.
been having lots of problems lately, and it's difficult to find help.

and happy 100 to me!

ETA: you'll notice that my new blog is still slightly in progress. does anyone know how to remove the title on top of my banner? thank you!

my friend shelley is here to visit for the weekend... we've had so much fun!

chain of events:
thurs: potbelly's
fri: laid out, went to lunch, then happy hour at pot's. thennn at night we went to my cousins' house for a party and out to baja's.
sat: shelley (the hairmaster) hooked me up with some color. pics later! i had to work tonight :( but i was ridiculously exhausted anyway.

isn't my shellbell the cutest?! i'm going to miss her so much :(

brighten-your-day tip #133

think of something to try and alleviate the pressure of some of your more mundane, difficult, or dreaded tasks. today i went out early and picked up bagels and coffee to enjoy while doing some homework.

some other suggestions:
- do the dishes with your ipod
- do your chores during the commercials of your fave TV show. by the time the show is over, you'll have a clean room and be able to scrap! :)
- dance your way around the carpet with a vacuum
what do you do to make your chores less boring?
p.s: i thought this was a tad hilarious. (see bottom 3 lines, highlighted portion.) pahahahah.

my happy place.

this is like, my favorite place in the world.
and i sleep right next to it every night.

Monday, September 03, 2007

cool man!

i found $24 in the laundry today!!!

scrap time?! what?!

last night and tonight. YIPEE!!
while watching seasons 1-3 of the O.C.
i freaking love that show.
at the moment, kirsten is battling alcoholism and ryan thinks marissa is sleeping with his brother.

anyway... will scan/post some stuff tomorrow :).

tomorrow, i have off.
meaning, no school AND no work.

however, i have some stuff to do (of course.)
- lab report and module one for OLC
- study for GREs (that's on the list every day)
- barbeque? blah.
- gym

SO! for every hour that i spend doing the above, i get 2 hours in my studio :).
that's a good plan.

does anybody else make to-do lists every day?
i also write things on the list just to cross them off.

these are the things that have been stressing me out, more lately, than i have ever been stressed out in my life. (does that make sense?)

1. graduation
2. studying/registering for/taking GREs, this test that basically determines my entire academic and professional career
3. ridiculously hard classes this semester/insane amount of homework
4. recovering from a breakup
5. grad school applications... choosing where to go.. choosing a program
6. having all of my roommates move out at once, leaving me with new ppl i don't know
7. best friend moved away
8. work
9. money (lack of)

soooo life isn't that peachy right this minuto.
but get this.
i was driving in my car yesterday down tennessee and i came to this great no wonderful realization. in three months, i will be graduated (1,3). i will be moved out of tallahassee (4,6,8). i will (hopefully) have already been accepted to the graduate program which is (hopefully) right for me (2,5).

how cool is that?!

my feet burnnn.

- haven't been to the gym in i honestly have no clue how long
- or out dancing in days, which seems like too long.

my last semester :(.
trying to live it up...
kind of bummed that everyone is going to orlando tomorrow and i can't go due to work-related incidents. and by incidents i mean i have a shift on saturday from 3-10 pm. BOOOO!!!! guess i shouldn't complain though, since i legit had to break in to the piggy bank tonight to afford cover charges. where there's a will, there's a way :).

but i do love my girlies :) and boys.
please ignore sweat/ridic end-of-night hair. it comes with the 15.8 billion freshman that have been flooding our clubs lately... also, refer back to dancing statement.

"most people she doesn't tell...

about the tightrope
because she doesn't want to listen to
their helpful comments on the ground."
- brian andreas

sooo. today was my first day of school! ever. i mean, my last, first day ever. well, except for grad school i guess. i can't believe that i'm graduating in december!
i went to my advisor today, just to be sure all my credits are in order. and o m g they are!!
it went a little something like this:

me: hi, um, i just wanted to like, see if all my credits and stuff were in order so i could, well you know, graduate college.
tricia: yeah dude. you're good to go. congrats man!
me: aw, man. i was hoping you would tell me that i had like, another year to go.
tricia: nah dude, sorry.

i don't actually talk like that (i think.)
she does. tricia rocks :).

my day was very very long, as all mondays will be. to make a long story short, my first class is in Psych building ONE (which is like, the top left corner of a layout, right?) and my second class is in Psych building TWO (bottom right corner) and my third class is back in PB ONE (top left again.) who knows.
i legit could not keep my eyes open when i got home and took a way-too-long nap.

and some linkage...
you may have seen these before, but since i hadn't until today, maybe you haven't either, right??

have a great week!

one year!!

my mom comes down to florida to visit at the end of every summer... it's a wonderful time! :)

after our return last year, i started typing out my thoughts. i added photos, art, and stories. one year later, this is my blog :) :).

you may have noticed some changes! i made the colors lighter and brighter (it seems happier and more upbeat somehow) and edited/added some of the sidebar links. check em out! hmm what else... i plan on getting back into posting regularly (every day?) again. after being away for the summer and the turmoil of events that have unfolded since i've been back, i haven't had much time. i changed my pic, and made some other small changes too! i liiike.

so! trip with mom was fab, as always. here are some visuals:

and yes, this IS toby keith.

at dad's

not really sure what to blog about or talk about, trying to heal a broken heart, not easy..

Friday, August 03, 2007

it's my first day back in america

and it feels weird!
did not expect this.
this summer has brought so many unexpected feelings.
more later!

one of my favorite things

about summer in general,
but particularly this summer...

is that it affords me the chance to read.
a lot.

so here are some recent recommendations for you...
hopefully, you can recommend something back to me?

i've also read a little jodi picoult and zadie smith's "on beauty." it was clearly more entertaining than in touch (i miss in touch.) but not crazy enlightening.

i'm about to start

and one last thing...

have a nice weekend... i'm off to rome :) :).

Sunday, July 01, 2007

and the good news is...

well, i'm traveling europe for the summer. so obviously, this post could get very very long.

but the real good news is: despite the fact that i have posted twice since being in europe, i have been keeping a pretty intensive journal. kind of like anne frank. but not. so even though it seems like i am MIA and so wrapped in this lifestyle that i've forgotten to do what i do... i have not. quite the contrary, in fact.

i can't wait to get back in the swing of things... but for now, it's very important for me to live every moment.
so, until next time... :)
