Your Nav Bar Here



So I don't know where my phone is. I feel really weird. I never know what time it is. I never really noticed how often I think of a random thing to text someone. It isn't important enough for me to call about it or whatever, but just something amusing. I do it all the time apparently, because I definitely noticed not being able to do it. I really, really hope it's just off and at Rachel's apartment...otherwise I will have to go back to my old Razr. No one wants that. (By 'no one' I actually just mean 'I'. No one else cares probably) And I would have to acquire a new memory card. I am infinitely glad I decided to empty my memory card yesterday, though! I would have been so sad to lose all my 3OH!3 and Cobra Starship pics. (I really will still talk about that concert)

Anyway, besides THAT, I deleted all my 'rules' in my Outlook and then redid them so they make more sense. Hopefully they actually do what I want them to this time. I tried making it very clear. We'll see, I guess. I probably just need to be subscribed to fewer store newsletters...but I just can't let go of potential coupons! Too bad most stores don't offer a choice to only be notified of coupons and sales, and not every new item they get in...

I made some cutoff shorts and pjs from my brother's old pants yesterday. And scored some sweats that didn't fit him anymore. Then today I cut up some shirts I never wear into more interesting shirts. Hopefully this kick I'm on of making new clothes from old/cheap/weird clothes keeps up. It's cheap. Now if only I can figure out something to do with that HUGE bleach stain on my favorite PINK hoodie...


Whoops. Hello again.

I accidentally forgot to do this blog. I don't know how it happened. 

Summer is good. I needed to be done with some people and some drama for awhile. And homework. I needed to be done with homework, too. 
My job is dull, but really not bad. I'm functioning surprisingly well on my new schedule, which is basically exactly the opposite of my former schedule. I now get up at 4:45 AM and go to bed sometime between 9 and 10:30 PM. The major downside is that my friends mainly do things at night, and I need to go to bed. So I am definitely not seeing people much, it feels like. This could also be because I am fairly lazy at planning things. hmm.
I am going to a bat mitzvah for twins tomorrow morning. Should be sweet. I went to their brother's bar mitzvah a few years back and it was legit. So was the food. 

Oh YEAH I almost forgot to mention the AMAZING concert I went to last week. I haven't uploaded the pictures from my phone yet, though. I'll make a separate blog about it. Promise. But seriously, it was soooooo good. Most fun concert I've been to yet. 

I did my nails funky last night. I like it, but I think I would like it better if the colors were reversed. 
In case you were wondering, the base is China Glaze "Shower Together" and the tips are China Glaze "Re-Fresh Mint"

Okay that's it for now. More on concert later. Hopefully not THAT much later. 

Also, enjoy your long weekend. :)



Sometimes I am bitchy. I know this. If I know a random fact that you are wrong about, I will keep going. If you are driving me nuts, I'll probably let you know. Except in a few rare circumstances, this is absolutely not because I hate you. It is because I am a real person and I am not going to pretend to be something else. I respect you enough to tell you if you are being obnoxious because I want to keep spending time around you. If I don't like you and you are bothering me, I will probably just leave. So just know that I respect you as a person enough to be myself around you and not put on a false front and pretend to be someone I'm not.

Friendships are so important. Friends don't deserve to be led on any more than a potential significant other. Pretending to care about someone you actually strongly dislike is never okay. Even if they never find out they aren't liked and get hurt, falsely trusting someone is no good. Probably the worst situation to be in is one who has    confided in one of these fake people. I have been there. I have told secrets to her. I have gotten what I assumed was honest, legitimate advice. I have been respectful enough to tell her when she was hurting my feelings. I gave her the benefit of the doubt. That was silly of me.In the end, though, I believe that I am better than I was before. I believe that nothing was lost except for time.

Even though it may hurt my feelings, even though I may get defensive, please be honest with me. Let me know if you hate it when I do something. Let me know if I hurt your feelings. Please. I mean it. I know I deserve real people and real friends. Be one for me. I'll be one for you. Promise.


Kate Nash

Yeah, okay, this is a bit overdue. I went to the Kate Nash concert at First Avenue last Wednesday. I was super excited because the tickets were really cheap and I LOVE Kate Nash. I was a little disappointed in my concert experience, however. As amazing and spunky as she and her music are, I (and clearly much of the audience) was a bit bored. It's not like she sounded bad - she definitely sounded fantastic - there just wasn't a lot of energy. People were mostly standing still, with a few jumpers. People at the bar or the tables seemed to just talk and talk and not even really be paying attention to the show. It was just kind of a let-down as far as the energy level. I feel like I was expecting the vibes from the crowd to be spunky like Kate and her music. Not a totally bad experience, though. I still got to see and hear her, got some decent pictures, and got to spend time at First Ave, which I love. Plus it was cheap. I'm still going to buy her new CD, don't worry. : )


The next two days.

Things to do this week:

1. Finish Stats paper
2. Attend Comm class
3. Dentist Appt.
5. Attend Jour class

That is all. That is all, and my week is done. I am so excited. I don't have anything for a whole week after I'm done with Jour class on Thursday. I am so ready to be done. Too bad I am blogging instead of writing my Stats paper, which is due tomorrow....hmm.


It's Time to Address the Elephant in the Room

My mom sent me this video via Facebook today. It blew my mind. I think you should watch it:

Elephants are so wonderful and fascinating. I have always appreciated them, but I think this video has brought that to a whole new level. I almost cried while I was watching this; it was that impressive.

I got a package today, complete with bubble wrap. Bubble wrap will never not be fun.

I'm trying to think of something thoughtful and creative and cheap - or free - for my mom for Mother's Day. It's not going well so far...hmm. I think I have a rotation of gifts I get her for everything, and it feels very boring and I think I could do better...but I do not have any good ideas.

It's time for me to do work now...maybe.


Hotdogs, Gospel Choir, The End.

I was supposed to be productive today. 
I had more than enough time to do everything for the rest of the WEEK today, because I really don't have that much left to do, and I had a lot of free time. 
Instead, I did nothing that really needed to be done. 
The moving out floor meeting was today. Compete with cookout. That was good. I love hot dogs. 
I cleaned up my stuff. 
I made a sunglasses case out of my old pj shorts and duct tape, which I am actually pretty proud of. Using old fabric and duct tape is remarkably useful and really, really cheap. I wish other people thought duct tape was as cool of a material as I did, because I would more than willing to make things for people. (At a price, naturally.)

The last gospel choir concert was tonight. I went to it, by myself. The concert was fantastic and amusing as always. It doesn't matter that I don't even believe in God or whatever.  I can still enjoy the music, the rhythms, the talented voices, and the incredible energy that that HUGE group produces. I'm really sad that that's the last one, but I'm also really glad I went to all the concerts I knew about while I was here. 

I just remembered something. At brunch today, I was grumbling about how I really did not want to do work today, but rather just lay around doing nothing until the gospel choir concert. That is exactly what I ended up doing. Typical. 

Officially the last week of class. Officially, I am done on Wednesday by noon, and that is just a review for the test. I am so excited to be done with homework and class. I am SO done living in this dorm and eating this dorm food. I'm not sure if I'm ready to live so far from all of my friends. I'm not sure if I'm ready to go back home. Or "home," maybe. I'll always feel more at home in the city, I think. Oh well, there's still free rent and a full-time job waiting for me there. And dogs. :)


You are a neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie.

I am watching The Breakfast Club. I know almost all the lines. I have probably seen this movie at least 10 times.

So I finally got around to making myself a blog. For weeks, maybe months, I've been thinking of things I would put in my blog if I had one. Now that I do have one, I can't remember any of the points I wanted to blog about. Typical.

I love this movie. I got it for my 16th birthday. Allison will always be my favorite. She had nothing better to do. It's fantastic. I prefer her personal style choices to whatever Claire magically generated for her.
Something that will always bother me about this movie...I am curious who had to pay for all the vandalism that occurred while they were in the library on Saturday, March 24th, 1984.

My apologies for a terribly boring first post. Eventually, I'll think of the things I meant to blog about.

In the meantime, check out this clip from my hometown news.
