Unexpected Blogging Hiatus and What's New...

I did not plan to stop blogging. It just happened.

Can you forgive me?

Between my upcoming finals, working a lot to make that moolah for Christmas, and everything else (which is also school and work related), I have not had ANY time to blog!

Even more bad news...

Since I am about to go on break, I will not have internet sadly. So, after December 12, I will most likely not be blogging until January since the blogger mobile app sucks. BUT I will be reading and commenting on everyone's blogs so don't worry! I won't dissappear. Just don't unfollow me because I'm not posting. It's not my fault!!!

Who's fault is it?.... ummm Hitler. Yeah, everything is always his fault.

Anywhooo... here's what's new.

  • I have begun working on the new design for my blog. Slowly but surely, it is coming along and you guys are going to love it!
  • My puppy is going to be 2 on December 1!!! Yes, I am excited.
  • It's that time of year again where I begin to realize how I've been slacking and letting my inner fat ass rule my eating decisions. I believe it's time to silence the inner fat ass and eat a carrot or something.
  • My best friend is getting married!!!! In like 3 weeks. I am so beyond excited. Oh, and I actually have a date... well kinda. He's my "just friends" date. Yeeeaaah, you know who I'm talking about.
  • Oh yeah... I cut my hair off and dyed it...

What do we think?

Welp, that's all I've got. hopefully I'll fit in some major blogging before December 12. I'll try my hardest.

For This I Am Thankful...

Hey bloggers.
I hope you all are having a wonderful time getting ready for Thanksgiving. But as we all know, as much as a day off school and work and yummy food is, the holiday is about giving thanks to the things in your life that you have to be thankful for.

I try to express my gratitude and thanks everyday but sometimes, when you just got dumped or you have that big paper coming up, it's easier to complain than to realize how good you still have it. I know this from experience.

This Thanksgiving, I will be family-less and friendless. It'll be just me, Pru, pumpkin pie, and Thanksgiving F.R.I.E.N.D.S episodes. And as much as being alone sucks, I am still thankful that I have things to be thankful for.

This year, I have my own apartment and a degree that is only 6 months away. This year, I am thankful for where life has brought me beacause it has made me so much more grateful for the people who have supported me even through the rough times, and I have had my share of those in the last two years.

I am thankful that somewhere in the midst of craziness, I found myself again and when that smoke cleared, I had people who loved me regardless how bad it got.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful that I am standing on my own two feet. It's hard, but I'm doing it. I'm thankful for a mom who loves me no matter what and doesn't care if her 22 year old daughter calls crying because a dumb boy dumped her or her day didn't go as planned. I am thankful for siblings and cousins I can call best friends and I am thankful for the best friends who are like siblings.

And most of all, I am thankful for the strength I was given to get to this Thanksgiving and to where I am now. For once, I am proud of where I stand no matter how bad of a day I have or how many things I wish I had.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful that I can say I'm happy because it was a long road getting here.

Have a beautiful Thanksgiving everyone!

Yo! It's Tuesday... Again!

Man, I love me some 10 on Tuesday. You should love it too... so go link up with Linny's Vault and tell us about a bunch of random shit!

I have sooo much crap due this week! But after this week, I will be golden for the rest of the semester. Pass the wine anyone?

The beauty of getting dumped after a two week long "relationship" is how easy it is to bounce back and how much it reminds me that being single is kinda friggin awesome 'cause the only person I have to please or take crap from is me. And I'm pretty amazing, I don't mind that.

Blog Makeover to come! This excites me. I like redecorating my blog.

I have to work on Thanksgiving, which means no trip to St. Louis. And even though I am still invited to the previously mentioned ex's family's house for dinner.... I think that's awkward. So, I am going to hold a F.R.I.E.N.D.S Thanksgiving episode marathon and celebrate being thankful for myself. Sounds like a pretty legit Thanksgiving to me right?

**DISCLAIMER** I haven't exactly turned down going to dinner at his family's house... it depends how lonely I am.

The lesson of today's Psychology class: "Minimize the Turdiness."

...Yep, speaks for itself.

So, I have the cutest dog in the world. Just sayin'

My Art History term paper (that's due on Friday and I have yet to start writing) is about Diane Arbus, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, and Bruce Davidson's use of children in their photography. Seriously, if you like photography and creepy stuff, you must google these people.

Gets me every time...

What's all this jazz about people wanting to petition for succession? It must be the fault of the latest surge of Lincoln books and movies... we all know he is a total BAMF.

I am wondering about restarting Furbaby Friday... Thoughts?

Now, go link up!!!

A Not Very Good Update

Sooo the guy I was excited about?

It's over... yes, after two weeks. I like to be honest with you guys because well, I can;t be the only one to have gone through this.

He decided he wasn't ready for the committment and called it off.

Am I hurt? Disappointed? Ready to drown myself in some ice cream even though it's 40 degrees outside? Yes.

But I can't. Best I can do is focus on me and school and just moving forward.

I can be bitter and sit here and say, that's what I get for being happy. Or I can step up and say, this is a sign that I wasn't ready to enter relationship world and I need to spend more time with myself.

I'm surrounded by great family and friends and I of course have you lovely bloggers as an outlet.

So, I'll be good. I always am.

Do you have any break up stories kinda like mine? Feel free to share!

Thankful Thursday

Hello Blogging Peeps!
Because I am so stressed out lately [well, today I was just plin crabby] I felt the need for some perspective so I am linking up with one of my favorite bloggers, Sar from [life of love] for her and Meghan of Shine On Thankful Thursday.

Here are the things I am thankful for today..." target="_blank">Thankful Thursday

" />
Doing goofy dances with the roommate to Jason Aldean on the ride to campus.

Professors who delay class so that we can go get chili at the Chili Bowl sale.
Running into my best friend Molly twice in one day... that never happens because our schedules are so different. Oh and being told I'm the Alpha to her Zordon... (Hopefully you all have seen Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" haha

Writing notes back and forth with my roommate in Psych class that involve Katy Perry and diagnosing Pooh and his friends with psychological disorders.

Cute texting conversations with my boyfriend that go like this:
Me: "How are you today?"
Him: "Trying to text outa one eye haha I'm so tired."
Me: "Then why are you awake weirdo?"
Him: "Because I saw you texted me duuuh! :P"

The fact that Disney Channel is creating a Boy Meets World sequel series... seriously Google that shit.

Only 4 more weeks left of the semester....

What are you Thankful for today?

Laters, bloggers

Ten on Tuesday.. Because I'm Awesome

'Tis time to link up with the lovely Lin for another "Ten on Tuesday" so here's my random ten:

I am so far behind in How I Met Your Mother, it makes me sad. It's because I used to have Mondays off and now I don't and it sucks big Godzilla balls.

Since I am an absentee voter, I voted weeks ago... but seriously people go vote. If I had to put up with all your Facebook crap and you don't even vote, I'm gonna be pissed. And yes I know, after the president is announced there will be more rants... I can deal if you actually voted.

It is flippin' cold! I can't deal. Bring my Fall back!!!

My blog needs a facelift... like seriously. Problem is... where do I even find the time to re-design it??

I have officially started my job search here in town. Hopefully I'll find something. I love my apartment and there's quite a few things to look forward to staying here for (even though I hate this city) BUT I can manage another year to see what post-graduation life in southern indiana has in store for me.

Novemeber is looking suuuppper crazy. Between papers, presentations, holidays, and working.. I don't even know where to begin. THis month is going to fly, that's for sure.

This is my dog... like for real.

I JUST had Friday off and I'm ready for another day off like now... ugh.

Who has to work on Thanksgiving? This girl. Who's family can't make it down here from St. Louis.... mine. Good thing the boyfriend's family invited me to spend Thanksgiving with them or it's just be me and some cranberry juice and vodka....

I want to make a point of sharing at least ONE blog I love in my Ten for Tuesdays so this week I want you to go follow my friend Haylie... she's super adorable.

Welp, that's all folks. Have a good night! And based on who wins the election, please keep in mind those people who have to scroll through your rants, just sayin'

This Weekend I...

Soo, I have been gone from the blogging world for quite some time so it's time to get back into that swing of things and what better way than to do a new link up!
Today I am linking up with one of my favorite bloggers, Sar from [life of love] for This Weekend I...   Now usually my weekends are pretty boring BUT   This Weekend I my first Friday night off in FOREVER.   This Weekend I spent a lot of time with my handsome boyfriend. For those of you who have been waiting...  
We rented "The Devil Inside" and "Dark Shadows" and went out to eat.

This Weekend I got off work early saturday morning so me and the boy went to this beautiful nature preserve and did some hiking. It was great with all the fall leaves. And I got a picture of this little guy...

It's an owl. He wouldn't keep his head still.

This Weekend I did nothing but eat out. I swear me and him didn't cook all weekend. I ate out at 3 different restaurants. It was weird.

This Weekend I felt boring so we stayed in and watched movies while drinking Wood Chuck.

This Weekend I worked a double on Sunday and cleaned the apartment. Yep... Sundays always take me back to the real world.

Nonetheless, I had a great weekend =] Now go share your weekend so we can be creepy and read alllll about it!

Do You Ever Have One of Those Moments...?

Do you every have one of those moments when you look back at the way your life was just a year ago and it astonishes you?
I'm having that moment.
Last year, I was in a bad relationship that was tearing me down mentally, physically, financially... just in general. I was getting evicted from my apartment and on the verge of not having a home and dropping out of school was an option.
...yeah, it was bad.
I was broke and depressed and my self esteem was lower than low.
But here I am now.
I am living in my own apartment with my best friend. My finances are back in good standing. I just registered for my LAST semester of my college career and have applied for my diploma. And, I have begun a new relationship with the sweetest guy I have ever met.
Yes, life is good.
And it may seem like I'm doing a little bragging... well I am. I'm pretty damn proud of myself actually.
I'm writing this post because everyone has rough patches in their lives and they make mistakes, and I am living proof that IT DOES GET BETTER.
No matter what you're going through, you are ALWAYS strong enough to get yourself back on track. You never have to sit there and let life kick you around. You can always fight back.
I sit here, the happiest I have been in quite awhile and when I look back on what I fought through to get here, I am not taking any of this for granted.

Love you all and have a good weekend!!!
