What a day!

I am SO glad that today is over!! I had so much work due today, it was nice to finally get it all turned it! Had 2 papers, a set of math problems, an online quiz, and discussion board all today. Whew!! Glad that is over! And oh yea...I had a very dumb moment was bad! I was waiting for the bus on campus to get from one side of campus to the other after class, and well I thought I got on a campus bus, but I actually got on a city bus! Yea, bad mistake! I felt like an idiot, but couldn't help but laugh at myself! What would have been a ten minute ride across campus, ended up being an hour and fifteen minute ride around town. Never again will I attempt the public transportation system! hahaha!

Also tonight was "movie night" in our apartment complex. Might sounds like something fun, but it is actually the most annoying thing ever! It is set up right outside our place and it is very very loud! Tonight they were showing "The Hangover." My roommates and I decided to get the heck out for the evening! We ended up going to this little local restaurant called Cabo's. I had never been and it was actually very good food! Recommend it for anyone in the Tallahassee area. Then we went to my favorite place EVER....

Oh how I love that place!! That definitely made my crazy day a million times better! :)

I am so happy that tomorrow is Friday! I love not having any classes on Friday. Only have work in the afternoon! Then it is the weekend!! No plans for the weekend as of now...we shall see what happens. Just know that I won't be attempting to ride any form of public transportation! ;)

Bachelor Update!

I never planned on watching this season of The Bachelor (like I have every other of the past seasons), but once again I was sucked in by the previews and all it took was one night of watching to get me to watch it every Monday night! So Jake was only supposed to be sending home two girls this week, but ended up sending home FOUR!! He eliminated Kathryn and Ella during their group date & then eliminated Ashleigh and Jessie during the rose ceremony. I was definitely very surprised that he got rid of 2 more than he was supposed to. But I respect him for cutting the ties now instead of later if he had no intention of ever marrying them.

I have been wanting so bad for him to send home Vienna, but once again he did not. Ugh!! That girl annoys me! But as for the other girls left, I'd have to say that Tenley is my favorite and I think that she would be really good with Jake! I'm just hoping that Vienna will somehow get sent home next week!! And I hope he ends up with Tenley! :)

Southern Girls

Sure are one of a kind! I found some quotes that I absolutely love & that I can totally identify with...

"A southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. We know how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC. We pick our battles and fight with the heart of a pit bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Our mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern bell who could direct an army, loves her momma and will always be daddy's little girl."

"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really.  It's more than where you're born, it's an idea and state of
 mind that seems imparted at birth.  It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country
 music. It's being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies and coca-cola... and
 each other.  We don't become Southern - we're born that way."

"Southern girls know the seasons: Recruiting, Spring Training, Practice, & Football."

"Southern girls know the three types of school: Ballroom, Ballet, & Charm."

"Southern Belle: A beautiful and charming woman from the Southern United States. A Southern Belle possesses an undeniable natural charm, has a warm and dazzling smile, and impeccable manners, calling each person she encounters 'sir' or 'ma'am' regardless of their age or position. A Southern Belle can be recognized by her unforgettable Southern drawl, unstinting hospitality and graciousness, and her recognition of SEC Football as a part of her religion. Southern Belles are recognized as one of God's greatest creations and continously overshadow women from Northern US States."

Y'all can't help but love us southern girls!!

So cute!

I have completely fallen in love with the new Lilly Pulitzer bedding! Isn't it absolutely adorable?! I am totally buying it with my birthday money next month! I have been waiting to find my perfect new bedding set...and now I have finally found it! I can't wait to get it! If only I had the money to buy it right birthday needs to get here quick!

Speaking of my is on February 19th and I will be turning 22! Yikes! Where has the past year gone? 21 sure has been a great year complaints. Lots of good happened...can't wait to see what being 22 has in store for me! I haven't decided what I want to do for my birthday. I know it's still about a month away, but I really want to do something fun. I can either just stay here in Tallahassee and do something with my roomies and friends, go home to Jacksonville, or maybe even take a weekend trip somewhere with a few friends. What to do? Such tough decisions, ya know? ;)

Pay day can't come quick enough! This getting paid once a month is torture...I need money now! Come next weekend I will have gotten my work paycheck & my monthly money from my more being broke!

Random thought...Why is it that certain people annoy me SO much? Some people, no matter what they do, just frustrate me! I am a very laid back girl 99% of the time, but geez inconsiderate and selfish people drive me nuts! That is all. Rant over.

Short Week...

Couldn't be happier that it is finally Friday! But this past week was pretty good.

Monday- had off from work & class due to MLK day. So I got to meet a friend for lunch and get some errands done.

Tuesday- the usual...class.

Wednesday- was awesome! Had class & work, then met up with my friend Stephanie and had dinner and then went to the free Weezer concert! Tons of fun! We then ended up going to Cafe Cabernet for drinks and had a blast! Here are some pictures from the night...

Thursday- I awoke to it basically hurricaning outside. It was one very intense storm. Kept me from going to my morning class...good thing because this is how most of campus looked...yikes I know!!

Today- no class for me on Fridays, which I love! Got to sleep in and then venture to work. The weather was gorgeous so it was great getting to drive with the windows down and the music up! Work was fun, did a cooking project with the kids that they seemed to love. Then came home and went out to dinner with Meghan & Katy!

It sure was a great complaints! :)


My future...

It's really late and I can't sleep...lots of things on my mind...

So it is my last semester of college and I have been thinking about the future and it excites me and scares me at the same time! I have been thinking about it a lot lately and here are some things that have crossed my mind....

1. I can't wait to try new things.
2. I am scared that I won't find a good job.
3. I have no idea where to even start looking for a job after graduation.
4. I can't decide where I want to live...Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Charleston, Nashville, Richmond, Washington DC...
5. I am going to miss the free spirited college life...not the school part.
6. Can I handle all the responsibilities?
7. Maybe I should have enjoyed college a little more than I did.
8. Am I the only one not completely sure of what I want for my future?
9. My parents are stressing me out about everything that I am stressing about already!
10. Graduation is less than 4 months away!

Where to start? I have no idea. Maybe it will all just start to come to me over the next few months...I sure hope so! I just have to stay positive and have faith that everything will be okay! :)

Thank God tomorrow (technically today) is Friday! I need a relaxing weekend stat.
