Just no time...

So... I am super busy. That is the story of my life. I worked Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 5am-1pm and Sunday 7-2. I didn't really get as much homework done as I planned/needed/have to do. So, I am popping in to say I won't be blogging this week because I am going to be extremely busy. Hope you all have a great day since it's supposed to be unbelievably warm (60s?) for the first time in months!

Currently, vol 46.

Well this week has been a blast. Busy at school, work @ Panera, and my 21st bday. I just finished my bday recap. Today will be a busy day of lots of homework, and installing a new water heater. Our basement half flooded, and we have no hot water. Therefore, no shower till it's fixed.
Finally 21!
Reading.. The Fault in Our Stars. I am still reading it, and it is a great book to pick up and continue after a long day of learning or work. 

Writing.. in my new 5-year journal I received for my bday. It asks the same question everyday for five years. 

Thinking.. about all the homework I should have accomplished yesterday.  

Listening.. to Catching Fire in the background. I seriously love this movie! 

Smelling.. nothing. 

Wishing.. for warmer weather. I am thankful there is no snow, but getting out of the 30s would be better.

Wearing.. a sweatshirt and pj pants. This is my go-to Sunday outfit before church, but since we have no hot water.. no church for us. 

Loving.. the sunshine. It is coming through my window, and it is so bright! 

Wanting.. to find food for breakfast. I ate a hard-boiled egg; not filling at all. 

Needing.. to go for another run yesterday. I took tommy out yesterday, and we went maybe a half mile because it was so cold. Also a lady had her dog off it's leash (city law: dogs must have a leash). She proceeded to tell me she didn't care, and she definitely called me a bad name. Jerk. 

Feeling.. so much better than yesterday. My head killed because of the alcohol from Friday night. Oh well. 

Have a great week!

P.S. The Blackhawks won on my birthday!! We watched the game at the bar in the casino! 

21st Birthday!

I was born on March 21, 1993 @ 6:22 a.m. to two loving parents. I was born five weeks early; which my original due date was the 28th of April. I was 4 lbs. 15 oz and who knows how long. So this year my birthday was: On a Friday, My golden bday, and obviously my 21st!

I woke up at 6:20 because it is tradition with my mom and I to be awake at the time I was born. I laid in bed until 6:30 because I knew my mom was wrapping my gifts. We ate coffeecake for breakfast, and I definitely contemplated having either a shot or a Mike's hard lemonade with it. At 9, I got my stitches taken out after having my wisdom teeth out over spring break! Fun times.
I got the 5 year journal, Catching Fire (with/popcorn + 100 grand bar),
iTunes, 21 button, and a shot glass!
As well as money to spend at the casino. :)

Mom and I went to Wildberry (which is a breakfast/lunch place with amazing food) to meet my Grandma for a late breakfast. The food was good, and the company was great. I got a caramel latte, and a bacon/cheddar omelet with hashbrowns and pancakes. I was full for probably seven hours.

The surprise cake they brought while I was alone at the table.
Mom and grandma both went to pay or something. 
After breakfast, we headed a mile down the road to the DMV. I wanted more than anything to get my license changed. We spend maybe thirty minutes waiting in one line just to go the cashier/sit to wait again to get my picture taken.

My mom and her best friend Laurie took me to Rivers Casino for a night of fun. I spent seventy dollars of birthday money, and I didn't win anything! I had many drinks, and I felt great. lol We went to the steakhouse they had at the casino, and boy it was expensive. I got the cheapest thing on the menu for 14 dollars. We got home around 1am, and I went straight to sleep. I had a terrible headache yesterday, and doing homework was absolutely terrible.

I am happy to share my birthday with someone I have grown up with for a long time. My neighbor Chelsea also turned 21 on the same day! We are 6 hours apart, and I am older!
Playing the slots since I don't know how to gamble!
Laurie, Mom, and I.
Now back to reality of homework, homework, and more homework.

Currently, vol 45.

I'm sitting under my miss-matched Christmas lights, watching Fireproof, and just relaxing. I am writing this post on Saturday night because I am working two shifts at Panera tomorrow. I get the joy to toast bagels, create delicious drinks, and take customers orders for 12 hours. This both sarcastic and not sarcastic. Sunday marks the end of an uneventful spring break. I got my wisdom teeth removed, ate out with friends, watched way to much Netflix, and did barely any homework. I am ready to start classes again, and I am excited to see my college friends again. :)

Adorable puppies from a pet expo on Friday.
Reading.. The Fault in Our Stars. I am still reading it, but I have enjoyed not having to read textbooks.

Writing.. this blogpost among journal articles and essays for scholarships.

Thinking.. about taking my shower tonight and not in the morning so I can wake up just a tad bit later. 

Listening.. to Fireproof. It's a Christian movie with bad acting, but it is cute every once in a while.

Smelling.. nothing right now, but my sweet neighbor brought mom and I a whole pie from Bakers Square.

Wishing.. and hoping that the snow they are predicting will not be a lot. 

Wearing.. a sweatshirt and sweatpants. This will probably never change. I am not complaining.

Loving.. the break I had from school. Much needed.

Wanting.. to get good sleep before the week starts. Sleep is going to get sparse again. 

Needing.. to start exercising. I lost six pounds this week due to not eating cause of my wisdom teeth surgery, and I want to keep it up.

Feeling.. excited. 6 days until my birthday!

Have a great week!

Well, it has been an action packed week for me, and boy, I am glad to be relaxing in bed. I had school Mon, Tues, and Wed. I worked on Thurs and Fri. I went out with friends on Friday and all day Saturday, and church and errands today with mom. I like being social, but it drains me and my wallet quickly. So here is what is going on currently...

Cookies and cream froyo with mini peanut butter cups and strawberries. love.
Reading.. The Fault in Our Stars. I am really starting to get into it! 

Writing.. nothing yet. I am not doing homework until maybe Thursday? Spring Break is the bomb.

Thinking.. about how well this whole losing an hour think went. I am not overly tired, and it is just officially dark out! 

Listening.. my new love. I am watching Once Upon a Time on Netflix. 

Smelling.. and indulging in delicious jelly beans.

Wishing.. for my wisdom teeth surgery to go smoothly on Tuesday.

Wearing.. a t-shirt and sweatpants. This will probably never change. I am not complaining.

Loving.. not having to go to class this week.

Wanting.. to watch netflix all night. I am gonna do it. 

Needing.. to be productive this week as well as have fun 

Feeling.. happy about longer amounts of daylight.

Have a great week!

Howdy. Don't you just love waking up to another 4+ inches of snow? No? Me either. It truly isn't funny anymore. It is the 2nd of March, and I am so looking forward to sunny days, lighter clothing, and dare I say it... flip flops. The countdown begins till my birthday. (19 days) The countdown to spring break is even better... 3 days for me. I just have to power through 2 exams and four classes. So in order to pass said exams (pathophysiology and geography), I am skipping church again. No judgement please. So here is what is going on currently...
My view for the day yesterday/today.
Notes, reading, and quizlet.
My other view was of two (one pictured) sleepy pups.
Reading.. The Fault in Our Stars. I am two chapters in, and I really like it. I am not allowing myself more than a chapter a day during midterm week. Sophomore fall semester during finals week, I read Safe Haven. Really bad idea. Don't ever read during finals week. EVER.

Writing.. out notes/note cards. I really want to write in my journal though...

Thinking.. about designing a snow melter. I would use my blow dryer, but I might get electrocuted. It might be the perfect week so I don't have to take my exams...JK.

Listening.. Taylor Swift. 

Smelling.. nothing? I wish I was smelling pancakes and hashbrowns.

Wishing.. for a warm month.  

Wearing.. a t-shirt and sweatpants. This will probably never change. I am not complaining.

Loving.. being alive. Sometimes I forget how blessed I am. 

Wanting.. to be super productive. 

Needing.. to find breakfast soon before my stomach starts speaking to me. 

Feeling.. tired and a tad bit stressed.

Have a great week!
