I Live In A Cave!

So, tonight is my roommate's 21st birthday party and rather than get ready, I am of course choosing to blog.

I'm really excited because we decked out the house walls in a bunch of scrunched up brown paper so that it looks like a real cave! The theme is clearly prehistoric, so there are bound to be many cavemen and dinosaurs alike (and yes, I realize these two never did technically exist on Earth at the same time... it's a party, suspend your disbelief :D).

Well, now that I've blabbed about my excitement, I suppose I should head on over to the shower area so I'm not late to my own shindig!

Lots of love, fellas/ladies! Keep me posted on all the cool/weird things you're all up to these days. :)

Here's to transforming myself into a leopard!!!!!

Giraffes Are So Cute... Too Bad They Stink In Real Life

I'm pretty sure I'm dying a little.

I just don't understand it. I was sick like two weeks ago!! This is so annoying. I blame Tallahassee's atmosphere. Regardless, something is seriously up.

Micro test tomorrow! Woo! And, of course, I'm so sick that all I want to do is blog and facebook and other nonessential components of my life.

Hmm... I need to search my closet for some plaid. Or just ask the roomie for some new plaid I'm not sick of already. Why do girls get sick of clothes so quickly? Purely annoying.

Well, I have to go finish reading my second Micro chapter now so I don't bomb and fail tomorrow. Good news, though. I rocked a test I thought I failed, so that's a huge plus.

Here's to economics and a nastily sore throat looming in my very near future...

Edward Edward Edward (No, Not Cullen)

This weekend was really just too much fun/productive. I'm not sure where to start.

I love love LOVE being a Lady Spirithunter! Saturday morning from 11-2 I helped re-paint the gold spears leading to the stadium where Chieftan and Pensacola meet. It was incredibly artsy/fun (I haven't gotten the chance to do many artsy things here lately) and so many people said thank you, which was really nice. It just feels good knowing I contributed to my school in such a lasting way. (And those spears really needed some touch-ups! 90% of the gold ones were almost completely gone!)

Then, I painted my first faces at a baseball game. The little kids that come all decked out in their Seminole gear are absolutely precious. I can't wait to get better so I won't feel bad painting fans over the age of 5. :)

And J's birthday party was so fun! I love meeting new people and getting to know others better. Edward 40hands is really one of the best games I've ever played. (Slightly ridiculous, but majorly fun.)

So, this weekend is why I love college. I got to make some wicked memories while also feeling good for the service I was providing my school. Now, if I could just bring that productive aspect into my homework portion of the pie, I'd be good...

(Warning--Crazy Boy-Obsessed Girl Rant Approaching: Oh, and the Oscars were FABULOUS! ... I only say this because I have an unhealthy obsession with Hugh Jackman--if you know me well you probably already knew that. I wasn't even going to watch, but luckily I turned the tv on just to see the beginning and wah-la, there was the man of my dreams serenading me via epic musical. Oh, how I adore him. *Le sigh* Probably why my homework department is slightly lacking tonight, eh?)

Well, here's to Johnny Depp and Hugh Jackman both being majorly sexy and majorly out of my league! But I suppose that's the fun of it all, right?

Happy Monday! :D

Snip, Snip, Snip

So, thus far, today consisted of absolutely nothing but random accomplishments that make me smile (and was completely devoid of any real accomplishments, like my piles of homework waiting for me to start in approximately five minutes--sad).

I got my hair trimmed! Which is cool, since it needed it pretty badly. I also got all the pieces necessary for my Lady Spirithunter getup--well, I could use some khaki pants still, but we can't win 'em all. And I got my new birthday tv from Best Buy!!! It's like... gigantic. I feel so spoiled. Thanks Daddy! =)

I really should be more thankful for all the beautiful love that surrounds me every day. New daily goal:  consciously be more grateful for my totally stellar existence.

I would love to write more (seriously, procrastination is like my #1 hobby), but I literally have about five assignments to complete before bed, so... here's to going to sleep around never!

Bubble Baths

I am oddly excited to officially start my first personal blog. I'm not sure if being this ecstatic is normal, but here goes!

I am very glad to have finally found a location for all the random thoughts that float through my head day in and day out. I feel like a very in-depth, personal entry is required, but I'm going to start my blog today with one of the world's simplest yet possibly most overlooked perfect little oddities: the bubble bath.

I happen to adore bubble baths. They are, however, only a very recent discovery for me. I know all you Pro Bubble Bathers out there are thinking I'm insane, but I seriously didn't realize how relaxing a simple tub of lavender-scented hot water could be until like... one month ago. I'm so glad I finally wised up and joined this little club.

Random, but true. Bubble baths could probably bring about world peace if we'd stop overlooking their immensely awesome potential. I know I never want to hurt anybody when I sink down into one.

So, here's today's little nugget of advice:  Next time you're feeling stressed out or a little blue, turn on the hot water, add a few suds, and let the bubble bath do the rest!
