Basically I need to see the book of mormon when it comes to the pantages. So incredibly inappropriate but the songs are also incredibly catchy. I should just buy one of those season pass things to see all the shows……Wow, I think i like musical theatre a little too much for my own good (nevermind, thats not possible) :)
We are taking my two blind pups to a place where you can wash your dogs in big tubs. The water in our hose outside is way too cold right now & we can’t wash them in the bath because the hair that comes off of them during a bath is enough to fill a sofa.
We get to wash them in warm water so they don’t become pup-sicles! (punny)
In other news I just showed my mom what I think is a bug bite on my face but she insisted that it was a hive and also insisted that I take 2 benadryll to stop whatever allergic reaction I was having. I can’t argue with her medical advice because she’s a nurse…..so I’m just gonna go to bed now. Yay for drowsy anti-histamines!
Homemade Pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting & oatmeal raisin cookies are all ready for the Thanksgiving festivities tomorrow. ‘Twas a great day hanging out with my familia listening to Michael Buble pandora and baking holiday treats…can’t wait for tomorrow to see the rest of my family :)
“You know what I’m gonna do?! I’m gonna cut off half of my hair and leave it in your saxophone case….and saying that “You’re the Nazi to my Jewism” is offensive because Jewism isn’t even a word!”—The love/hate relationship that is Lindsay and Isaac
“Ok guys, the first question on this exam is messed up….is says A, B, D, E…but it’s really A, B, C, D. So if you answer it with the original letters I’ll just be like “Tough Sh*t” because I totally warned you…. Come on now, we’re in college.”—My Sociology Professor.
"Your optimism about the world changes based on how much sleep you got the night before. Like right now you guys are half asleep and thinking ‘ahh eff it the world’s gonna blow up’. But if I let you take a nap and woke you up an hour later with some orange juice and oreos you guys would be thinking, ‘YEAH, LET’S END WORLD POVERTY!!! SOMEONE ELECT ME PRESIDENT!’ Moral of the story is that orange juice and oreos solve everything."
Got free Philosophy body wash, new victorias secret shorts and perfumes, a new top from forever21, a gorgeous dress, and a pretty necklace… but the best thing I received today was the sense that I was loved by all the people surrounding me. I’m in such a good place and am so blessed to have such amazing people in my life. Plus I got to eat more food than I think I have in my entire life in one day so that’s always nice. :)
I would also like to wish my baby sister a happy 14th birthday as well…Hope you had an amazing day & I hope I can come visit home soon :)
Here's my one extremely selfish and seemingly ignorant rant...
Your birthday is supposed to be the one day where you get to be completely selfish and willingly accept gifts from friends and family simply for being born. My birthday happens to fall on 9/11. Not the happiest day. I’m torn morally because it is my birthday, after all, and I want to have a nice day, however, seeing memorials left and right. And while I am extremely torn up about all of the lives that were ended that day I don’t appreciate people telling me that I should celebrate my birthday on a different day because somebody attacked our nation on that day. I was born 9 years before the tragedy happened and you’re tell me that I should pick another day to be born? Sorry, it doesn’t work like that.
A normal conversation would go like this…
"My birthday is on Sunday!" "WOW, EXCITEMENT!!!"
My conversations go like this…
"My birthday is on Sunday!" "ooh that sucks…you should celebrate on saturday instead"
I get the feeling that people are judging me for wanting to celebrate on the actual day I was born as selfish and uncaring of those who died that day. Not the case. I am simply celebrating the day I was born, not the fact that thousands of people passed.
Remember those who stood up for our country and died innocently that day, but also remember the millions of lives who begun that day.
ok, I’m done being selfish…carry on with your lives.
Tomorrow I get to move into my new room at school and start Prep Week for Peer Advising!
Next week my amazing roomie Patricia moves in! And Orientation starts (woo! it’s gonna be even better the second time!..mostly because I won’t be worrying about people judging me as a new freshman haha)
Then my other two awesome roomies move in and our room will be complete!
Then school starts (not so exciting but part of my schedule nonetheless haha)
Anyways my next two weeks are a little crazy but should be freakin’ amazing :) so excited!
I have to go learn 2 dances and new cheers for tryouts while trying not to get distracted about how I want my room decorated haha
but my drivers test is tomorrow morning (it’s embarrassing because I’m almost 19 and in CA you can get your license when you turn 16…only a teeny bit behind). Not really sure why it took me so long to get around to it…bad timing mostly. I feel pretty confident about my driving skillz but this little voice keeps creeping up saying “but what if you fail” …that’s when I say eff you, voice I need to drive myself back to college on Friday. What’s keeping me confident (and is also nervewracking at the same time) is that people are kind of depending on me getting my license (mostly because I will be bringing my car). How else will me and my roomies get to target when we run out of hand soap?! haha. Anyways if I don’t pass I guess its not such a big deal ill just take it again at christmas (actually, not passing isn’t really an option)
Goodnight, I have to be awake before 11:30am tomorrow haha
Forgot how good of a workout swimming was! Swam a 5-7 min warm up, 30 min “high intensity” swimming switching between arm, leg & combined exercises. Was out of breath by the end but it was so worth it. Determined to finish this out for the rest of these two weeks :)
I accepted a challenge made by my sister to swim laps around our pool for 30 min every day until i leave for school (12 days). I got so toned when i was swimming during my freshman year of high school so my acceptance was a happy one. I’m excited to see what kind of change I can make in a little under two weeks (probably not much, but it’s worth a shot). Let’s go!
How come the only thing i want to watch on tv when i’m trying to eat healthy is food network. (There also ALWAYS seems to be a diners, drive-ins and dives marathon on) So while I eat my apple with peanut butter I get to watch guy eating the best macaroni and cheese of his life….life is so unfair haha
The ventriloquist that performed at my middle school (for students who sold 5 magazines in the magazine drive…yeah, only 5), terry fator, has the dvd of his live vegas show on netflix because he won a million dollars on america’s got talent.
i’m gonna be real hipster right now and say “yeah, i saw his show before he was a millionaire” hahaha :)
Kinda cool..but kind of embarrassing that I remember his show that well from middle school.
How much I miss dancing. I watched my sister’s dance performance today, in which, most of my best friends who I’ve grown up with were graduating from the program. It just brought back all of the memories from my senior year and reminded me of all the amazing friends I have made at that studio. As I was watching them perform I saw them start to tear up, which made me start to tear up as well. And of course I was crying because I was so proud of them achieving so much during their time at PAC and sharing the emotion of leaving something you have been involved in for basically your entire life, but I was also crying because I was remembering all of my memories at PAC and my last show.
I’m just an emotional mess. I feel like something is missing from me and that is dance. This summer will be an intense dance summer and I wouldn’t have it any other way :)
PS. If any of my seniors read this I can’t even begin to express how beautiful all of your dancing was. Truly blew me away.
Basically I have been re-thinking my entire life throughout this last semester & I have finally decided that the biology major was just not doing it for me. I thought that since I was “naturally” good at science I would enjoy it but that’s really not the case. I wanted to be a dentist for the longest time but I’m not really sure thats for me anymore. I’m not sure what exactly I will change to (which scares me) but right now I changed my schedule to test out a possible option of sociology (actually leaning towards that). Looking into counseling but I don’t want to set my heart on anything; I’m open to change.
Taking out the bio major just took a giant weight off of my shoulders. I can graduate in 4 years. I can study abroad. I can easily fit in my art minor. Um yes, I will take all of the above. :)
Yep, my dear ol’ dad is taking me shopping this weekend …..at the goodwill. But not just any goodwill…its the brand new goodwill in town! (and my dad could not be more excited)
Now my comment may have seemed a little sarcastic, however, I am actually super excited about this trek simple drive to the goodwill because I really want to tap into my inner hipster and go “thrifting”.
He told me that since I wanted to go to the goodwill he would take me because that’s about all he can handle haha…I think that was a good decision on his part because I like to be sure I love what I’m buying …which results in multiple hours at the mall. (Little does he know I will be digging through EVERYTHING in this store.
My dad will be looking for $2 tee-shirts he can mess up while working around the house & I will be looking for colorful scarfs & shorts that I can tie-dye :)
I have a goodwill literally walking distance from my house..I have no idea why I haven’t gone and looked through all of their treasure troves more. Maybe that will be my goal for summer. :)
