Let the Halloween festivites begin! Love having Halloween on a Sunday, that means I get to dress up for three days!


For just a while, calm your thoughts.  In this moment, simply be.
There is much in your life, and there is much more to come.
Yet you have always been, and you always are, more than enough.

For a moment, let go of the way you appear and the things you’ve done. Feel the truth and power of who you are.

In silence, there is much you can know. Beyond thought, there is much you can understand.

Touch the person who always lives inside the person you are. Be immersed in the beauty and wonder of being.

Feel the strength that is always there. And know that whatever may come, all is well.

— Ralph Marston.


Fall 2010.

You know you are in your last semester of college when....

1. Writing a 40 page paper seems like an easy final project.

2. You are at school/ work more than you are anywhere else.

3. You get so stressed out the tears flow like the freaking trevi fountain.

4. You start caring less about school, and more about a career.

5. Having an A pass still doesn't let you park close enough.

6. Your moto is "C's get degree's!"

7. You know exactly how many days until you graduate. (52)

8. You don't have time to shower.

9. Freshmen seem like babies, and you can spot them from a mile away. 

10. Taking a 3000 level class is "giving yourself a break".

11. Speaking in class is fun.

12. You would rather sit at home on a Saturday night watching Veronica Mars with Elise than go to another party.

13. You have to write in your planner when a good time to clean your room is.

14. Your classes have ten students total in them.

15. You professors are more of friends than scary teachers, and you know you will use their networks in the future.

16. Grad school is actually an option, before now you haven't thought too much about it.

17. You finally have mastered APA/ MLA style.

18. You take it day by day, and project by project.

19. Eating is not a priority.

20. New pencil skirts and cardigans for work are your christmas and birthday presents.

Well here are a few things I have learned this semester. I am dying, like seriously dying. I have never been so stressed, and I probably will never be this stressed again. But I know I am learning a lot, and this is what makes college hard. It isn't about the work, it is about time management and the ability to get things done. So for now, I may want to pull out my hair... but I am going to get on my horse and own this last semester. So to all the stress' I have in my life... suck it.


Shout out

Just wanted to share with everyone this company. They do amazing flowers and landscape!



What an obnoxious word. It could mean so many things. I guess my definition for dating right now is "something I should be doing as much as possible". Some think of it as awkward, annoying, exciting, new, fun and I probably agree with all of those definitions. For the most part I love dating, I love getting to know boys and how they think. Lately I have boycotted dating a little bit. This may be because I am insanely busy, or because I am too lazy to shower, but I have decided to get out of my non dating funk and get out there. Before I do, I just wanted to give the men some pointers that I have been thinking about for a while.

1. Texting does not count as speaking to a girl. Don't text to set up a date, pick up the dang phone.

2. No texting me at 11:30pm to "watch a movie" is not a date. And girls aren't stupid, we know what you want if that is the case.

3. If you call me a week before and set up a date, make sure you follow up so I know if you are actually still planning on it, and no calling a half an hour before you told her you would be there doesn't count.

4. Please don't put a smiley face :) in any of your texts. It drives me insane.

5. Yes, I go on a date to learn about you, but for the love would it hurt to ask one question about me? I can only talk about your high school glory days for so long.

6. Put on a nice shirt. I am not saying wear a tux on the date, but at least shower and look nice enough to take out in public.

7. Come to the door, my parents won't bite.

8. Have something planned, I hate the question, "so what do you want to do"?

Ok those are all of my thoughts right now. I am sure I will have more to add later. Now with this new advice I hope you all date on!


 I hate that I went from this..

 to this....
in a matter of days. Please take me back to New York!

At least tonight I get this....

with some of my best friends!!



Could today get any more perfect? I don't think so. Here are the top 5 reasons why I love today.

1. It is the first day of October, which is my favorite month.

2. It is currently 87 degrees and Sunny!

3. I leave for NEW YORK in one week from today!

4. I am starting to love my Job.
Went out to lunch today and felt great about the meeting!

5. We are 1/3 of the way through the semster.
Which means in 2/3 more of a semester I will be Graduating!

I hope everyone who reads this blog (aka Mom and Megan, my two fans), have a great day!
