Mondays. Boo.

I don't understand why the weekend has to go by so damn fast.
I had a good, albeit crazy, weekend.
My sister came in to visit on Thursday and stayed until Saturday afternoon.
We showed her a good and dramatic (haha) time. I am hoping to post some pictures of that and her soon, when I get them in.
Basically, we watched Twilight (yes, I am a fan), went shopping, and stayed up late on Friday drinking and have a good ol' time.

Now I'm back here, without her and with time flying so fast and school work to focus on as the last month of my last year of college approaches (it begins Wednesday people)!

Something I feel the need to share is my passion for food.
I recently told anyone who reads this about my exercise dvd. It was neglected the two days my sister was here because we had an extra mattress pulled in my room on the floor and it took up space. No worries, I did the whole 50 minute dvd yesterday and felt great.
However, its hard to make any kind of progress when you give into temptation and find yourself going to both Wendy's and Taco Bell at 10:30 PM and spending money you really shouldn't on this and this and this and this. It was so comforting and delicious, though.
Which is exactly my problem. Yes, I love eating. But I do it ALL THE TIME. Even when I'm not hungry. And that isn't going to help, especially when I like the worst food ever! Healthwise.

Honestly, if I could, I would eat chicken wings (from Tommy's or Bart and Urby's probably), Super King Buffet Chinese, and Taco Bell all day every single effing day of my life. And I would be content.
But I would no long have the normal BMI or weight for my height and age. I wouldn't no longer fit into my size 1-2 pants, even though they are a little tighter these days. And I probably would not longer have a working heart.

I cannot diet or deprive myself. But I know I need to come up with a better hobby then fast food extraordinaire.


It's been a while.

I haven't had much to say.
Weather is still cool.
And they turned the heat off here in Flood Hall, I'm assuming in honor of the first day of spring on Friday.
Well, it was premature. Pretty sure the apartment is chillier than the outside.

I had a decent weekend. Drank a bunch of Blue Moon...delish. Saw I Love You, Man and loved it. Worked all night but hey! I made money.

I've been using a dance exercise DVD I bought last Wednesday and I am in love. It's hard to get myself to go to the gym, but with this, I just pop it in in my room at any time that I want and dance away! My heart pounds, I sweat, and its so worth it. I've been feeling good already, just knowing that I'm doing something.

Which is the whole point at the moment. No more pessimism. A new chapter of my life is being soon so I wanna make the best out of what I have now.



I am by all means a straight young woman.
However, I am very susceptible to the girl crush.
I can appreciate a woman's beauty. Perhaps its because you are always scoping out the competition. But yes, I check out a girl and I can admit when they are hot, cute, beautiful...whatever.
Well...I just saw this on Perez. And it's hot.


Another Gorgeous Day

I hate that I don't know what to do with myself on such beautiful days.
A walk would be perfect, but it would be even better with someone to go with.
I'm about to go thrifting for a little, just stay out of the apartment and off campus until dinner time.
I finally wore my new AA frock.
I like it.
But I'm feelin' down and out on my looks.
Don't you hate feeling insecure?
I mean, when I like myself, no one can bring me down.
But the second I feel fat, ruddy, dry, or red, I'm a snap-able twig.

Amazing Song

I've been listening to it on repeat.
It makes me wanna fall in love.
And it is the perfect Spring transition song.

It's a Beautiful Day

St. Patrick's Day, 2009.
I do not follow this holiday.
I was actually going to spend my 24 hours in a drunken stupor, which I've never done before.
But I am 21, after all, and why the heck not?
I'm a senior in college.
But things came up...not so good things.
So I'm trying to make the most of the day, and probably celebrating small, after everything has been accomplished.
What can you do?

On a side note, I'm getting sad about my impending graduation.
The springtime has always been the best time during my past 3...well, 4 now at school.
But each has been different.
I'm missing each of them.
And wishing this one didn't feel so final.

More skirts and tights today! So happy.

Scarf -thrifted
Striped Henley - Old Navy
Gray pocket skirt - Pac Sun (same as black one yesterday)
Burgundy stirrup tights - American Apparel
Mocassins - old Payless


Monday Monday.

I don't like Mondays.
How cliche right?
I have one class, but having work at night always drags me down.
Especially since things are slowly starting to pick up weather wise.

Been thinking of this outfit for a while...this polka-dot leotard complete with snap-crotch has been sitting in my dresser since I purchased it at Volunteers of America (after a thorough washing, of course) and I've been dying to wear it. I'm obsessed with the idea of a leotard now. Which is why I still want this.

Debbie Downer Pt 2

OK...this is not cool, guys.
I cannot get funky over everything.
I want to be happy, carefree, and thankful for everything.
But usually, I just complain.
Today was beautiful, but instead of making the best of it, even by myself, I stayed inside wishing I had friends.
This is poop.
It has to stop...NOW.


I hate bad days.

Today, I didn't enjoy much of anything.
I often feel like I have no friends. Or that the ones I have aren't right for me.
I want someone who will sit at a diner with me for hours, or stay up late, or do crazy road trips on a whim. Where are you friend?

I know, I know. My midnight snack is actually a meal.
And yes...I balanced it on my computer...which is probably why it sucks.
And yes. I use Twitter.
And yes...I do like hummus.


Guess who wussed out?

My Friday did not go as planned.
But there's always another, right?


I like a good deal.

Haircut went well yesterday. But the black is really makin' me look pale. I want my brown back.

Today I chose an outfit well-worn around this time of year.
But I topped it off with a pair of new sneaks I purchased for 5 dollars (!) at Wal-Mart.
I know what some people say or think.
But I stand strong by Wal-Mart.
That's all I have to say about that.
But I fell in love because shoes like these sold for around 20+ dollars at Urban Outfitters last year.
And that's rediculous, because I'm pretty sure my grandmother gets them in white every year.
They had all different colors, so if you're pro-Wal-Mart and pro-cheap cute shoes, head on down!


Something is wrong with my right eye.

Since daylight savings, I've been exhausted.
And its the perfect weather outside (chilly and gray) to stay in bed and cuddle with a friend, lover, or your favorite stuffed animal. Unfortunately, there's work to be done.
I shan't complain...I mean, I love getting up at a decent hour on a regular basis, having 3 meals, and not being cooped up all day...however, somedays there's nothing better than simply being cooped up.

I am getting so sick of jeans, the same cardigan sweaters. When can I wear my short sleeved shirts and a light jacket? Skirts and shorts? Tights without getting chilly from the cold? Hopefully soon. It is March after all. Unfortunately, according to The Weather Channel, my area is in for highs in the 40s, and not much sun. What can you do?

I braved the chill anyway and threw on a pair of cutoff shorts I made out of skinny jeans that stretched out too far and shrunk a bit. I have two of these self-made pairs. I got them from PacSun and even though I feel bad that my parents bought me 2 pairs of jeans and I cut them up, I get more use from them now then I would've wearing them as plain old jeans. I layered with blue ruffled tights and my pink Docs.

I need to get better at this picture thing.
Much needed haircut tomorrow...so excited!



It's a rainy gross day, but I decided to wear my thrift skirt anyway. Luckily its not cold!
I hate Mondays. I only have one class but the thought of going to work depresses me.
This week depresses me. I can't wait for the "business" side of the day to be done.
Just have to keep cheering myself with clothes and fun things.


Sorry for the lack of posts these past few days. Busy bee...though, not really.
Break has already come and gone.
I topped mine off with a trip to Philadelphia to visit my sister. Bought (more like splurged) the red Afrika print pocket frock from American Apparel and also fell in love with this item.
Now I'm back at school and I'm really ready for some FUN!
The weather is slowly but surely picking up.
I can't wait to pull out more skirts, shorts, and dresses.
Things making me anxious this week:
- Going back to class when I really don't want to.
- Whipping up a good cover letter to find jobs which I really don't want to.
Things making me happy:
- Haircut on Wednesday so that I might finally feel confident again and might actually take more photos to post on here.
- Septum piercing, this Friday. Cannot wait.

Hope when I talk again I will have more interesting things to say!


You know how I know you're gay? I saw you make a spinach dip in a loaf of sourdough bread once.

I love 3/4 of what is going on in this picture. (Not a big Jonah Hill fan)

I am a big fan of Judd Apatow and his crew.
They are very funny, very clever, and they are TAKING OVER.
If you're a n00b, which HAS to be impossible, the following our my favorites and definitely worth checking out:

Freaks and Geeks
This one is a series. It's a cult classic that only lasted about 13 episodes. James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Jason Segel are all in it.
Knocked Up
40 Year Old Virgin
Pineapple Express
Forgetting Sarah Marshall

And if you're into Seth Rogen, check out Zack and Miri Make a Porno. It's a Kevin Smith film, and he's basically a cult classic on his own anyway.

EDIT: Here is a link to all of the pictures from the Vanity Fair article. Even more amazing than the first.

I've fallen in love with this.


The Thing About Being Home

  1. It's nice to sleep in, because breaks mean that I have nothing to do for most of the day.
  2. I missed soft toilet paper. And doing my laundry for free.
  3. There is nothing to eat and yet I keep finding unhealthy things to snack on.
  4. I have to wait around all day to find out if I got dressed for a reason.
  5. I still stress about money, because break means I have to find something to do or go nuts instead.
  6. I basically live out of a bag.
  7. I cannot wait to have my own place.
Aside from getting an MRI today (a checkup on a problem from the summer that will hopefully be nothing big), I have done nothing today. Slept in a little, finished watching Being John Malkovich (I don't know why Charlie Kaufman's movies get put in the Comedy section, as they are almost mostly depressing), and showered up. I'm supposed to go out tonight, but its hard to find things to do when its not as simple as an IM or a cross-campus walk away. Break is already going by too fast and I am still debating whether or not I really want to go to Philadelphia.
Good thing I like to do things on a whim when I'm alone.

It's sunny today...but the snow is still on the ground.
I've been looking at plenty of blogs and sites out of sheer boredom.
Here are some of my favorites.
The Stylish Wanderer
Punky Style
Fashion Fille
Flying a Kite
Cupcakes and Cashmere

Oh. And if you're an occasional computer gamer like my nerdy self, but you also like fashion, you should definitely go to Playfirst or Arcadetown and check out the Jojo's Fashion Show series. It is just about the most fun!


I spent five hours in the car, driving, today.
The reason I was driving so long was because it decided to snow pretty monstrously. And I couldn't get out of driving because I had to pick my sister up from the airport an hour away. She was coming back from FLORIDA. Go figure.
I can't get over how much I hated on myself after London.
I am looking back at pictures and kinda missing and liking myself back then. Or maybe its because I had a bit of color and it was summer.
It's Spring Break folks.
But I guess there's a reason why King's College, located in ever-changing Wilkes-Barre, PA, calls it Winter Recess instead.

I miss my hair like this...NATURAL. And I miss light clothes and my sunny backyard.


Oh no...

A new obsession: shoes.
I have a decent amount of pairs but lately I want MORE.
And all different kinds too.
