OOTD: 9/26

I thought I would do an Outfit of the Day (OOTD) post for you since I am loving my outfit right now. The shirt and boots are brand new and this is the first time I am wearing them. I did have a different outfit picked out but decide to save that for this weekend when I go out. Everyone has been asking me what I am doing tonight because I love nice! If I had more time in the morning I would look nice everyday but I just don't have the time.


Sweater: Old School Sweater

I have a busy day ahead of me! I sleep in until 10:00 because my first class wasn't until 11:00. We got out of my English class early so I am back in my dorm room now just waiting until my Women's Study class at 2:00. That class ends at 3:15 and from there I have to go to my seminar at 3:30. Seminars are long and mine won't end until 5:10. I have an appointment at the Writing Center to help me with my English paper at 6:00 and I am hoping for a small break between Seminar and the appointment. My day should be over by about 6:30. The good thing about all of this is I don't have any homework due tomorrow so I can relax after I come back.

I just thought I would give you a little outline of my day and show you my cute outfit!

Hump Day Blog Hop!

                                   The Hump Day Blog Hop

Who would have thought a simple commercial would have turned into so much?! Since the Geico commercial come out everyone had been saying Happy Hump on Wednesday. It's no surprise that there is a blog hop called Hump Day Blog Hop. I just love it! Liz over at Fitness Blondie runs this blog hop. It's really simple all you have to do is:

  1. Display "The Hump Day" blog hop button anywhere on your blog with a link.
  2. Follow the co-host (please!)
  3. Mingle with our bloggers!

I'm just going to do some rambling here about my life in the last day. I'm starting to feel a little better but not much. I am taking medicine constantly. I'm also going to bed a little bit earlier than I normally do so I can get more rest. 

I did yoga today in my Aerobics class! I love yoga and would love to do it more often I just never have time! It was so relaxing and I loved the stretching we did. 

Speaking of class I didn't have my Sociology class today because the professor was sick. The only bad thing was she never emailed us so everyone in the class got up and came. It's an 8am class so we were all pretty annoyed that we could have sleep in! 

The paints I ordered Monday night came in today! I was so happy and really can't wait to use them! If I didn't have to write my english rough draft tonight I would so be painting right now! The book I ordered with the paints came in but that's not important because I need that for school. 

My roommate locked herself out today! We both had class at 11 and I left before her. She text me like two minutes after I left to ask me to come back to the room as soon as I was done class. I was scared that something bad happened but at the same time I was hoping something good happened. Needless to say I was laughing that she locked herself out but it was bad for her. 

I've been trying to work on designing this blog. I want to do something fun but I have to mess with the codes and I just haven't had enough time for that. One of these days my blog will be pretty! 

I'm off to go do homework and maybe paint if I have time. I'm done class for the day so let's hope I have time.

Sick, Sick, Sick

My friends for the night

Well as the title says I am sick. I came back from class yesterday at 10:00 am and as soon as I got in the building I started to feel sick. I have no idea why it didn't start hurting until the moment I was in the building. The left side of my throat was sore and my left ear was hurting. As the day went on the rest of my throat was sore and itching. By the time I went to bed I had a runny, congested nose. 

I hardly slept last night because I couldn't breathe. I have been congested all day and it has just gotten worse. To make things even worse the school store was all out of medicine so I had to walk to the 7-11 by my school. They really didn't have anything that I could take except allergy sinus relief. I really hope this works because I can't be missing class and would love to do something this weekend. 

I think I know where I got sick from and I should have seen it coming. My friend Caroline was sick but she got better. I was sharing food and drinks with her after she was better and we are both positive it is from her. I'm not really mad I just want it to go away. It could also be from someone at school because have to school is sick. I'm just waiting for the rest of our friends to get sick, especially someone in particular. 

If you have any tips on how to get better fast, I would love them! Right now I am debating waking up every 4 hours to take medicine. I'm going to make sure I take as much as I can, get a lot of rest, and drink orange juice. 

I'll talk to everyone tomorrow. Hopefully I will have a nice, healthy update!

Music Monday

I thought I would do something a little different and post a little music on my blog. I use to listen to music ALL the time but in the last couple of months I've barely turned on the radio. Since being in college I have had the radio on a lot. Most of the time it is so that the room isn't completely silent and other times it is because I am in the mood to listen to music. I thought it would be fun to make a playlist of all of the songs I have been listening to a lot. Thanks to my friend Caroline I have a lot of new songs to listen to!

College Has Taught Me...

I've been in college for a month now and I've learned quite a lot. Not so much school things but life things.

I've learned: 

  1. How to shave without putting my foot on a ledge or sitting in the tub (that means balancing on one foot)
  2. To take my key EVERYWHERE I go, including the bathroom and just to throw something out in the hallway
  3. Not to study or watch netflix in bed, I'll just fall asleep
  4. How to share my space with someone I NEVER really talk to before
  5. That although people come from different places, have different beliefs, and are nothing like me we are really just the same 
  6. I have to dress warm to eat in the cafe, which is my main food source
  7. Lunch time is the busiest and it is best to skip it
  8. All you do in college is read, read, read!
  9. It's so easy to talk to complete strangers!
  10. College can change you!

It's funny how one month can change you! Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad but overall it is a welcomed change. I really have learned other things but right now that is all I can think about. What have you learned in college? Anything funny or helpful? Tell me in the comments below!

Random Fact Friday #4

It's been a month of Random Fact Fridays and I still love doing them. I think I said this before in my facts about me post but I'll say it again.

Happy Birthday, Mom!


Today is my mom's birthday! I won't tell her age because everyone knows you don't say a lady's age. This is the first year I won't be there to celebrate it with her and that makes me really sad. I wish I could be there but with it being a Thursday and being in college I couldn't. On Thursday I have class until 5:00 so it on't be worth it or easy to go home for a few hours. I am going to FaceTime my family when they sing happy birthday so I can be there and sing (I probably won't though) with them. As for her gift I don't know what they brought. I guess I will see later what she got. I really hope its good! I wrote a little letter to my mom and here it is:

Dear Mom,
I really hope you had a great day! I know you did a lot of running around with Ryan needing to go get his braces off, get his hair cut, and go to the allergist, and Shannon needing to be picked up. I hope you got to come home after you did all that and relaxed. You really need a day to relax even if its just for a few hours. I'm sorry I can't be there :(. I really wish I could be but I have classes so late on Thursday. I did try to help with your present but that can be a little hard from over here. They have better had picked out a good present! I can't wait to FaceTime you so I can singing Happy Birthday with you! I'll be sad I don't get the cake thought! Happy Birthday, Mom!


This is the first big event I will be missing because I am at college. The good news is there are plenty of birthdays to come!


P.S. Those are the only two pictures I have with me of me and my mom!

Hello September

September started yesterday and last night I had this amazing blog post idea! I want to tell you all my goals for September! Now, before this idea came to mind I didn't have a list written down. Since this idea I have come up with a list that I hope to accomplish in September.

  1. Get A's on all of my school work
  2. Keep my dorm room clean
  3. Go out more with friends
  4. Become more independent 
  5. Join ONE thing in school
  6. Finish reading the driver's Ed book
  7. Finish things before they are due or at least on time. 
  8. Go to the gym at least once a week
  9. Blog more!

All of the things on this list can be accomplished its just that I have to push myself and make myself do them. At the end of the month I'll do an update on how these things went. Wish me luck!
