*THIS is where I want to be: in this beautiful nest I made myself by my fire!*
Obsessing over: United States of Tara. Have you ever seen this show before? It's about a mother in Overland Park, Kansas who has multiple personality disorder (or DID- dissociation identity disorder). Her alternate personalities include a 16 year old girl names T, a 1950's housewife named Alice and a biker dude named Buck. Her two teenage kids and husband help her with her disease and frequently find themselves entertained by her alters. Even more alters come out as the seasons go on. I love love love her husband because he's so amazing (same guy who played Aiden in Sex and the City!) I'm also basically obsessed with her daughter Kate. She has the craziest style and she's hilarious and fearless. Love her. Toni Colette, who plays Tara, is such an amazing actress. And Overland Park is where I lived when I was interning in Kansas City. So much love for this show. This is probably my third time going through the seasons (there's only three). Highly recommended.
Working on: nothing right now! Can you believe it? I did a presentation this morning (mucho scary) and I just turned in my essay proposal. I rewarded myself by meeting my mom and David for lunch at the mall and then wasting time walking around. I think I'll further reward myself with more laze time tonight!
Thinking about: what's coming next. Oh there is always something. I believe I have a midterm and a paper due next Monday. The work never ends my friends. Maybe I'll get my act together and start working on them tonight...but probably not!
Feeling: sleepy.sleepy.sleepy. I was convinced that there was going to be a snow day today so after I finished my work last night (hey, I'm not crazy...I made sure I still did my stuff for today) I stayed up until 1am watching Stranger than Fiction and making a wreath for baby Jackson's room. Yawn I'm sleepy.
Wanting: to find the motivation to get to the gym tonight. I have plans to go with Erika tonight (as long as she doesn't cancel). I'm SO tired I probably wouldn't even mind if she cancelled but I'm hoping she'll be my source of motivation. That's what gym buddies are for.
Wishing for: this class I'm in to get over with! That's right. You heard me. I'm blogging in class. Total badass. I know! It's only been twenty five minutes so we have another hour left. I realllyyy wanted to skip but we had to hand a paper in. Probably for the best since I skipped a class Monday. Boy this time of year is a total *blleeeeppp* Stay tuned as my motivation dwindles. In better news: 5 weeks left y'all!

The real me

So this is what you get when you ask your mother to take a picture for you:
A blurry and akward picture where you're most obviously giving attitude. Let me introduce you to the real me.

We were taking a couple pictures to put with my resume but it did not go well. She has very little patience...which I have very little patience for. The photo sesh was kaiboshed. I believe we will just send the resume out and see how that goes. My stepdad knows someone who works at The Weather Network and is in desperate need of some part time writers (hey...that's me!). I hope this works out. A good gig would really take some stress off my end of year woes...and probably add some to my current work load but c'est la vie.

In other news: I am officially writing for the school paper! I applied again when they were asking for volunteers and I guess I did it right this time because they emailed me back! Woohoo! Awesome resume addition + great experience. I'm pretty dang nervous to see what my first assignment will be. I'm sure it will be sometime I'm very uncomfortable with and will force me out of my shell (I'm not too good with strangers...I'm basically 4 years old). We will see kids. We will see.

Most importantly: this is what I did last night:

Well kids, I've got a busy night ahead of me! I have to work until 9 and then go home and put the finishing touches on my presentation for tomorrow and write a short essay proposal. Must focus.

Bye for now.

Monday? More like Meanday

Luckily I have lots of coffee to push me through the day. I was supposed to spend all day yesterday doing homework but of course I didn't. I was actually supposed to spend all night Friday and all night Saturday too but you know me, I'm a big old procrastinator. I just want to sleep all.the.time.

This morning I woke up at 5am to go to a 6am workout class with Erika. It wasn't so bad because I got to bed at around 10:30 the night before but after I went home, showered, ate breakfast and fast forwarded through my recording of the Oscars (I really only wanted to see if Jennifer Lawrence won) I was really starting to feel the sleep deprivation. I drove to school and felt completely exhausted. I can't remember the last time I felt that completely dead. When I got here I found a nice cubicle, laid out my work and put my head down for a nice little nap. After a while you lose all shame when it comes to napping at university. I haven't done it for a long time but in third year I made a habit out of getting a nap in every day. I slept for an hour. It felt amazing and I'm pretty positive I didn't snore haha. I'm feeling much better now and am sipping on my cold coffee happily. I've done a little more work since I woke up and am slowly getting closer to getting to the point where I can start making my power point.

Wednesday I have a presentation in the morning and an essay proposal due in the afternoon. Neither are very hard, it's making myself do them that's the hard part. I'm actually a zombie who's only focus is Netflix and napping. Must get through the rest of this semester. Then nap.

I'm hoping that we only have a couple more weeks of winter until things start to get nicer around here. The end of second semester is always pretty wonderful weather-wise. I just remember walking to class last year near the end of second semester in my rolled up jeans, Toms and cardigan and not minding one bit that I had a class a couple blocks off campus. I can't wait to feel that content happiness again.

Until then I'll be stuck in this library typing away and utterly dreading everything my planner is telling me must be done.

Have a wonderful Meanday pals, but I know that's a hard thing to wish for at this point if you're a student!


Secret of the Week

Luckily my drug is coffee, but I'm beginning to think that some sort of drug is what it takes.

So....I'm an Aunt Now

I'm sorry that I've been a HORRIBLE blogger lately (reading week really threw me off my schedule) but I come bearing the wonderful news that I became an aunt last night!

I went with my sister to my grandma's for a visit at about 1pm. By the time we left at 3:30 she was complaining about her contractions but said that she didn't think they would get closer until about Monday. I was like "this baby better come soon because I'm swamped next week and want to see him NOW!" Well, apparently he listened. Jordan and I were headed to watch Robin's hockey game and right as we were getting off the highway my mom called and said "GO TO THE HOSPITAL." We got right back on the highway and headed to the pick my parents up and then head to the hospital. We got there at about 8pm and baby boy was born at 8:41pm. His name is Jackson James Senior and he's super tiny and super cute. I loooveeee him!

We went by today to visit him and take turns holding him and staring at that gorgeous face. I can't even believe he is my nephew. It's so surreal.

Well, that's the most exciting thing that's happened to me lately (slash maybe ever). I'm so glad Jackson is finally here and we can all finally see his beautiful face.

You'll have to excuse me because I must get to work on this presentation I have on Wednesday (life doesn't stop for anyone).

Bye for now.

I got me some bangs today. I also got about an inch taken off. I always do this. I let my hair grow out long, get annoyed because it's dying, get them to cut the split ends off and then every time after that get them to take more off until I find myself with a bob. That's probably going to happen because I just saw Safe Haven and Julianne Hough's bob is so perfect. I basically stared at her hair for most of the movie!

I'm feeling on the fence about these bangs. I think I like them, and then I look in the mirror again and think I look like a 12 year old. I'm just not sure. I think when I style them tomorrow I may change my mind. The salon always tends to style my bangs kind of weird. I did curl my hair today, which is big for me. For years I was convinced that  I could NEVER curl my own hair. It always just turned out weird and I gave up before one side was even done. I've been practicing and it's gotten alot easier. I love this length with a little curl at the end. I like having curled hair that doesn't feel like it's on it's way to prom.

Well I guess I have some updating to do! Lets see...Friday night Jordan and went out for dinner and watched a documentary when we got home (such old folks, I know). Saturday I went to Toronto with Erika to see Shauna. It was a fun night. We went to a bar to meet up with Erika's boyfriend and his friends. We drank and joked around. I wish we had went out dancing instead but ohhhh well. Sunday the three of us saw Safe Haven before Erika and I headed home. It was prettyyy good but had a weird twist at the end (not a fan). I had dinner at Jordan's and then he stayed over night and we caught up on The Walking Dead. SO GOOD but so crazy. Yesterday was a holiday so we lazed around before I went to the gym with Erika at 3:30. When I got home I made a delicious stir fry and tried to avoid doing readings (I did do some...but I hated every second of it).

I'm working until 8 tonight and then going home to watch episodes of New Girl and read. I've moved on to season 2 now instead of just watching season 1 over and over. I've seen almost all of season 2 but it feels like forever since they've been on and I found them online so I'm a happy camper. Zooey fix: complete.

Well, I think I'll make myself a nice big coffee now to get through the next 2 and a half hours.


Secret of the Week

This made me laugh when I read it. To me, it seemed like the secret writer found it humorous too and I like the idea that they took two horrible things and made a joke out of them.

Love Day in Review

Happy day after love day! Was anyone else feeling the love yesterday? I sure was. My instagram feed was filled with lots of spectacles of other people's love. I don't think I've been that aware that it was Valentines Day since preschool but it was nice. There were so many beautiful and adorable pictures that I think I liked about 50 pictures. Ca-ute.

I happily wore my heart dress yesterday. I felt so festive and lots of people commented on my spirit. It was cute. After work I went to The Bulk Barn and got some stuff for treat bags. I made one for each of my parents, one for each of Jordan's parents, one for Jordan and one for Erika. It was fun to do something nice. After that I went over to Jordan's and we exchanged gifts. I got him a sweater and he got me The Perks of Being a Wallflower. After that we watched V for Vendetta and cuddled all night.

Tonight Jordan and I are for real celebrating Valentine's Day. We're going out to dinner at The Keg (uber yum) and then going to see Mama (we can't overdo the love, gotta throw some horror in there too!) I'm very excited and can't wait to be done work...even though I just started.

Hope you had a fabulous love day, whether you have a partner or not!

Bang On

So I have a hair appointment for Tuesday and I believe I'm going to get me some straight across bangs. I reallllllyyyy love bangs. I'm afraid that I can't pull them off or that I'll hate them but I might as well give them a try. If I hate them then my hair will grow back. Just know that this is a brave move for me!

Here are my inpirations:
This was my original inspiration. I am obsessed with these bangs and her messy hair and all the layers and how it falls around her face. My hair obviously isn't this long but I do want it to look kind of messy, and rocker and not like when I had bangs as a child. Muchhhh cooler.
Of course I could never have a post about bangs without the beautiful Zooey. She is the poster child for bangs and when I have them I will probably watch New Girl obsessively for ideas on how to style my hair.
Finally, Alexa Chung deserved to be on this list because 1) she is fabulous and 2) she has the rocker-ish edge that I like. My hair is also about her length so it gives me a better idea of how mine might look.

Well, I'm officially scared but I'm gonna take the plunge on Tuesday so wish me luck.

Au Revior



*This is me dreaming of a day without midterms*

Obsessing over: Jack White. Oh man is he talented. I seriously think everything he touches turns to gold. After I was done my notes last night I watched an hour long interview between him an Conan O'brien. I kept finding myself nodding at the screen because everything he says is just so inspiring. He's such an incredibly hard worker and genuine musician. I admire the fact that he refuses to make his music with digital technology because he sees it as cheating and he kept saying "even if no one else knew that I was cheating, I would know." I just love him. I'm a die hard White Stripes fan and even though I don't love his solo work as much, I still really love it. It's currently being played over and over again in my car. Sheesh he is inspiring.
Working on: getting ready for my quiz tonight. I've just printed out my paper for my class at 2:30 and the last hurdle for the day is to take this stinkin quiz. I haven't done the readings but I think I'll be fine just using my notes. I have a paper due Sunday and I hope to get it done before the weekend so I can get a little relaxation and have a little fun.

Thinking about: Saturday. Speaking of fun...I have plans to go to Toronto with Erika to stay at Shauna's Saturday night. Me and Erika were in a workout class and "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" came on (the cheesiest, I know). I looked at Erika and said "we're going dancing this weekend. Text Shauna." I love dancing with them. We just hop on the dance floor, act super silly and just have fun. There's nothing better than truly just enjoying playing around with people.
Feeling: much happier than yesterday. I am getting through the worst of it and I think my midterm went pretty well this morning. I'm still stressed about the road ahead but I'm getting through it. I told Jordan yesterday that I was seriously considering getting a random part time job after school so I could just chill out for a while. I'm just mentally exhausted by the work and I'm not sure jumping into another stressful situation is what I want right now. Who knows.
Wanting: to give up chocolate for lent (which starts today). So I'm not really super religious but I feel like lent is a good time to give up a vice and chocolate is my vice. I try to keep away from it but I probably have chocolate every day in the form of a chocolate covered almond, or a mini reeses pieces. I loooove chocolate and even though I keep it in moderation, I really crave it and I think that cutting it out of my diet for 40 days will do me some good. Hopefully I won't even notice after a while. For new years I gave up diet pop (I was addicted to Coke Zero) and now I only drink water and coffee and don't even notice. That's my plan for chocolate. I'll keep you posted on my withdrawal!
Wishing for: a good vday tomorrow/friday (because we aren't really celebrating it until Friday). Tomorrow I plan to just cuddle around with Jordan and watch Harry Potter while I finish a paper. I think cuddling sounds like a pretty wonderful plan for vday. Friday we are going to go out for dinner and a movie to celebrate love day. Expect some red, pink and possibly heart covered attire.
Aren't you guys proud of me that I kept track of the days this week? Finally a Currently post on it's intended day!

Hell Week has Really Earned it's Name

As of right now I'm feeling somewhat defeated. I'm just feeling over run by stress and emotion. It's very possible that I will burst into tears at any moment.

This semester has been my hardest one yet. I'm feeling very overwhelmed by the work load and I feel so close to graduating but so far and even graduating seems like a stressful idea at this point. I know this sounds really dramatic but I feel absolutely miserable right now.

I woke up at 5am yesterday to workout and it made me feel pretty good for the morning. I was at school by 10am and studying for my midterm that night. Unfortunately my 5am wakeup call started really hitting me around 4pm so I had to drink a redbull just to get through my exam. It was a pretty hard exam but I think I did okay. I got home around 7:30, made myself some chicken and was out the door again by 8 to go to the library with Erika. I got a decent amount done but still have lots left to do.

I tried to make myself wake up early this morning but I just couldn't. I got ready, enjoyed a good breakfast and was ready by 11. My stepdad picked me up soon after and we went to the office. I work at one and I told him I was just going to spend the extra hour studying. He was like "well, why don't you just start at 12 because you usually get out an hour early anyways." This is true but the reason we usually leave at 8 instead of 9 is because he wants to go home. I never ask to. I don't think it was fair to ask me to start early when I have so much on my plate right now and he was the one who forgot that I started at 1 and not 12. I just want to cry thinking about how I have so much studying to do before 8:30am tomorrow and edit a paper. Not only do I have all this to do but right after I get home tomorrow I have a quiz due by midnight that I haven't even studied or read for and then a paper due for Sunday. I'm just feeling so overwhelmed and stressed. I just get zero happiness from school. I can't wait until it's over. I seriously think I'm going to lose it.

I'm sorry if this feels like whining but I just need to vent. I'm just having a tough go this week. I knew it would be hard but I didn't expect to feel this emotionally drained.

Well I think I got everything out that I needed to.

Good luck to everyone else feeling the stress right now.


Secret of the Week

Sorry this is late pals but I was a VERY busy lady yesterday and our internet capicity has been reached at my house so I didn't want to play around with it until my mom said it was okay or not.

Happy almost love day

Day of rest?

It's Sunday which is a wonderful and horrible thing. It's wonderful because it's usually a very nice day where no one expects much out of you and it's horrible because Monday is always looming.

Monday feels especially looming today because I have a midterm tomorrow. That's right people, Hell week is almost upon us! I finished my paper for Wednesday and I'm going to revisit it on Tuesday and make some revisions. Now I just have to get my study on for the midterm tomorrow and then immediately get to studying for my Wednesday midterm. After that I have a quiz and then a paper due Sunday. WHAT THE HECK?! It will all be a lot easier once these midterms are knocked out. After that I can focus on one thing at a time. What a luxury!

I started today off with a dee-licious breakfast. Beautiful way to start a Sunday. Now I'm sitting in my office (aka my bed) and getting ready to finish my notes.

Okay I must go. I've got lots to do and not much time for it.


Saturday, 9 February 2013

This is my life now

In order to keep myself on schedule to get everything done during Hell week I have to write a paper today. Womp womp. I do my work in my bed now. I just don't have the strength to be anywhere else and beds are just too wonderful to leave sometimes. When you do your work in bed it can feel relaxing too so basically, I never plan on leaving.

I worked out this morning with Erika. It was hard to wake up at 8:30am on a Saturday but it feels good to already be done my workout and on to other things.

Well, I wish I could tell you more interesting things about my life but this is what it's all about lately: working out and studying. Oh well. Oh well.

Happy Saturday. Drink lots of coffee and stay in bed!


Friday, 8 February 2013


So...this is happening right now. It's actually ridiculous. The snow is up past your ankles and it came overnight so the plows are not on their game right now (even though we all knew it was coming). I actually don't really have an explanation as to why the plows have been slacking this morning. Maybe because it just keeps coming, they can't keep up with it...yeah, we'll go with that.

Anywho, ALL of the schools in the area have been closed today. That includes universities. If this were any other semester I would be lazing at home right now and in heaven. Usually Friday's are my busiest at school but this semester I thought I was being smart and took all my Friday's off. I just this week started working Friday mornings which means that am at work right now. Unfair. It took me a hour to drive here this morning (its usually about a 20 minute commute). I got on the highway and it was so bad that I had to get off and take the back roads. It's ridiculous. If the world was a fair place the office would be shut down today for everyone's sake but it's not and here I am.

Luckily I have about 2 and a half hours left and then I plan on going home to take a nice warm bath. Driving in this weather is stressful so I need some relaxation and a little something to warm these bones. I have a lot due next week so I plan on lazing around with Jordan tonight while writing a paper. I have no plans of wearing anything but tights and chunky sweaters or doing anything that involves me being outside for more than 60 seconds until this storm clears up.

Stay warm my friends

I'm going loco

In case you were wondering; the answer is yes, I have absolutely lost my mind! I can't even seem to keep track of the days of the week anymore (as you probably noticed when I did my Currently post yesterday, which was a Tuesday) What's wrong with me? I don't even know why I keep thinking that it's Wednesday on Tuesday. Oye vey.

In other news, I'm having a pretty good day so far. Wanna know why? Because my presentation for next week got pushed until after reading week! OH MAN am I happy. That's just one less thing I need to stress about for Hell week. Now I just have two midterms and a paper. Still sounds like a lot but it's actually sounding very welcoming now. I am so glad I don't need to stress as much anymore. I am very excited for reading week though. I still have a lot to catch up on and prepare for for other classes so it will be a very good break.

I have big plans when I get home to hop directly in bed and get some serious reading done. I was gonna stay at the library but oh man is it cold on campus today. I am freezing. Someone should be getting fired for this torture they are inflicting. Also, I just really want to be in my bed right now. I can think of nothing more welcoming than my big bed with it's thick duvet covers and piles of pillows. I'll have to be sure to drink coffee while I'm in there so I'm not tempted to pass out.

Most importantly of all: I'm wearing my new polka dot chambray shirt. I wasn't completely sure about it but I've paired it with some tights, brown boots, a dark purple scarf and a sock bun. I think I'm rocking it today. Does anyone else agree that tights are the best alternative to jeans? I have a serious thing against wearing sweats in public. I'm sorry to those who swear by it but I think it's the sloppiest thing ever (that goes for girls and boys). Tights are amazing because they are stretchy but also super cute. I swear by them on my lazy days.

Well, I must get back to readings. I have an hour and a half until my next class and I want to finish this one reading that is taking forever.

Happy Wednesday (for real this time).

Winter Song

I'm back to work over here. I'm writing up some notes to get ready for my presentation next week. If I can make a good schedule for myself and put lots of hours in, I think I'll be able to get everything done for next week. I have plans to stay at school tomorrow after my classes are done so I can try and get the readings I need done all done. Hell week is fast approaching and I'm sucking it up, putting my big girl pants on and getting into the zone. 

While I was typing up my notes I was letting my iTunes take me where ever it wanted and it took me to Winter Song by Sara Barrelles and Ingrid Michaelson. I love these two ladies. They have such beautiful voices that I love to sing along to. I couldn't think of a better pairing. This song is also very appropriate for this time of year. In February it always feels like winter may never end so while we're in the thick of it we might as well play some fitting music.

Okay. Back to work.



*Another day of work today. Le sigh*

Obsessing over: my new instagram prints I got from prinstagram. I ordered 24 prints and I love them! I've been wanting to find a way to print mine and the only way I had found previously was by ordering the tiny magnets. I loved the magnets but wanted some actually prints that I could display. They are currently sitting in a vintage tin on my coffee table and I absolutely adore them!

Working on: preparing for hell week. OH MAN am I freaking out already. I mentioned before that I have two midterms, a paper, a quiz and a presentation next week. So scared. I'm just working on catching up on the readings for a class and then I'll be about ready to start studying. It's really crazy how much I have to do in the next five days. I already am planning many endless library trips. Yikes. Most scary of all is that my professor emailed my school email (that I never check) 11 days ago introducing my to my partner for my presentation. I didn't think I was gonna have a partner! I emailed her yesterday right after I got the email and haven't gotten a reply yet. If I don't hear from her by tomorrow I'll just see if I can do my own presentation. So stressful that all my plans have been changed around now. Ick.

Thinking about: spring. I can't quite decide if I'm excited for the next season just yet. I do enjoy longer hours of sunlight, beautiful flowers and the end of another school year but I also love boots and tights and knits and coats oh and NO BUGS. Bugs are the bain of my existence. I had a fruit fly infestation last year that still haunts me. I think I'll just soak up winter as much as I can until it's over. Maybe I am excited for spring now that I think of it! I can't wait to run outside again!

Feeling: super duper sore. Yesterday Erika and I went to a 6am workout class! I know...we're insane. It was my first body pump class in forever. In this class you have the bar and weights and spend an hour doing squats, lunges, and everything you could possibly do to your arms. My legs are KILLING me today. They were already killing me by noon yesterday. I obviously need to do more squats. It feels good though. Sore muscles mean you're doing something right!

Wanting: to bake. If I had more free time I would be baking my life away. I really want to make some cupcakes or try out some healthy dessert recipes. Baking is so fun and I never get to do it anymore because it tends to consume an entire afternoon. 

Wishing for: reading week to get here already. After Hell Week I will have a full week off of school. I thought about working full time that week but I think I might just spend the time reading and relaxing. I think I'll have earned it by then. 

Happy hump day


Monday, 4 February 2013


After I finished my essay last night I decided to relax by watching an old favourite, Elizabethtown. It's about Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom) who meets Claire Colburn (Kirsten Dunst) on his flight to Louisville for his Dad's funeral. Before he found out about his Dad's death Drew was planning on killing himself. Clair and his experience in Elizabethtown, Kentucky change everything for him.

I love this movie because it's so quirky. Kirsten Dunst's character is so weird but so optimistic and full of amazing one-liners...the whole movie is full of them actually. It's just an overall feel-good movie and I'm finding myself wanting a red hat just like Claire's. Also it features an amazing road trip with an even better soundtrack.

This movie has some of my favourite quotes in it. Here are a few:

*It takes time to be funny. It takes time to extract joy from life.

*I'm impossible to forget, but I'm hard to remember. 

*You wanna be really great? Then have the courage to fail big and stick around. Make them wonder why you're still smiling.

*Sadness is easier because its surrender. I say make time to dance alone with one hand waving free.

*We were complete opposites and it worked. And something happened between us that was not part of the plan... we were in love. 

*I will miss your lips and everything attached to them.

*This loss will be met with a hurricane of love.

*We are intrepid. We carry on.

If you like these quotes you should really watch the movie because some of them become even more beautiful within the context. So good.


Secret of the Week

I love it too...alot.

Stubborn Love

I've had this song on repeat for the last hour as I've been trying to wrap this essay up. I'm on my last paragraph and last point and I feel like my arguments are getting more coherent so I guess things are going better.

Mostly I'm wishing I could have this album on vinyl right now. The Lumineers would sound soooo gorgeous spinning on my record player. 

Have a wonderful Sunday evening pals and get lots of sleep for the week ahead!


Homework Hate

Today I am writing an essay and I am very unhappy about it...mostly because I do not understand what the heck I'm writing all. It's for my class Studies in Global Convergence and I'm supposed to write about that Global Convergence is including ideas like Market Concentration, Monopolies...and a lot of other very hard to define ideas. I'm just feeling so confused. Probably as confused as you are just hearing about it now. I'm half done but I'm just feeling like I'm not sure if I'm defining things correctly. I'm really hoping I'm coming across as knowledgeable over here!

Today is the Super Bowl but I don't particularly care. I've never had a big thing for sports and I'm not a huge fan of Beyonce. I'd rather sit around watching my crappy reality tv shows all day while trying to write this paper. Also I'm glad not to be surrounded but the chips, dips and chicken wings that accompany Super Bowl Sunday. I've been having a tough time lately making good food choices so I'm really trying to get back in my groove. I think I might even go for a little run later as a break from this paper.

I hope everyone else is enjoying a lazy Sunday free of homework or any work at all.

Back to the old keyboard for me.

As of Late

 *I tried out milkmaid hair (as I like to call it) and am smitten. So often I don't try anything new with my hair. It's fun to feel like you're doing something a little special*
 *Coffee is my lifeline and I like to drink it out of Jordan's cup- that's right...I live life on the edge*
*It's a wintery wonderland over here. I'm kind of loving it because it's extra beautiful and gives me an excuse to cuddle up inside*

Today has been a good one. I went over to Jordan's after grocery shopping with my mom and he made me breakfast. It was dee-lish. I'm a pretty incompetent cook and he is amazing so I always love when he cooks for me while I lounge on the couch. How's that for breaking gender roles, huh? I was supposed to read all day but instead I took a nap from 11 to 1:30 (oh man, so good but so unproductive). After that I did get a good amount of reading done before we had to go to my house for dinner. Dinner was delish but sooo greasy so I was glad that Erika and I had plans to go to the gym after. We did the stair climber for forever and it felt After that I came home and cleaned my super cleaned. I dusted basically everything and swept, and vacuumed and Windex-ed. Best feeling. 

I watched New Girl while I was cleaning. Let's take a moment to talk about New Girl. You know how much I love Zooey Deschannel but I'm extra loving this new season mostly because *spoiler alert* Nick and Jess finally are getting together...maybe. They did kiss and it was amazing! So happy. In related news I now have a very serious urge to wear a dress tomorrow. Zooey always does that to me.

Another show I'm obsessed with (maybe more so than New Girl right now) is GIRLS. OH MY LANTA it's effing hilarious. I just watched the fourth episode of second season tonight and died laughing. Marnie is my favourite. So beautiful. SO perfect but I also have a serious love for Shoshanna. Anyone who talks that fast will make me laugh. I am dying to get my hands on these:

Bee-autiful! If you don't watch GIRLS 1) do you live under a rock? 2) DO IT.

Au revior and bonne nuit mes amis

Just a little John Green Appreciation

It's no secret that I have started a love affair with John Green- metaphorically speaking. He is such a beautiful writer. I seriously wish I could go back in time so I could re-read his books. I just love him. Because of this love I decided to find some beautiful pictures dedicated to his beautiful books. Enjoy and after that I suggest you run out and get his books!

There are probably about a million more images I could have chosen- apparently John Green has the same effect on others that he has had one me. I'm glad.

I really enjoyed looking for these beautiful images and quotes. I think I'll do this with my very favourite author, Chuck Palahniuk. I've already seen a lot of images like these for him as well. He's a lot darker than John Green but he is such an amazing writer. I've read almost all of his books. He deserves a post as well.

Good night. Go read.
