Mmmm...Cookie Cakes!

So, I was going to get on here and complain about poor professors. Actually, I would not even consider them professors. I will just stop there and bite my tongue. Boy, am I a competitive, hothead when it comes to sports most things.

Instead, I am just going to say that I have one week of classes left. I CAN DO THIS! I can't believe that my sophomore year is coming to an end. I will do a full recap post once I edit all of the pictures. This is all too surreal. It is all too bittersweet. I love my school and the friends I have made, especially this year. I can't wait to go home and be with friends and family, but I will defiantly miss my life down here. I have met so many great people and have made friends that will last a lifetime. Even though this wasn't my first pick in school, and probably never will be, I am so happy that I am here. It's funny to think where life takes us.

Oh, by the way, I love cookie cake.

Hello Thursday, Welcome Back!

I couldn't tell you the last Awkward & Awesome Thursday I posted. Actually, thinking about it, Thursday is a pretty awkward day all together. It kind of makes me mad...bring on the weekend already! Also, I just wanted to throw this out there in the open, but I only have one full week of school left. HOLY COW! I have only one week left, in other words, I am half way through my college career. Damn, it's been a good two years. I will save all the other mushy-ness for another post. I am too happy right now to be writing about sad stuff.

Cleaning out your room and realizing how empty it is with no photos on the walls.
Laundromats. Need I say more?
Having someone come up to you saying.."You were THAT girl from that party last year. I remember you!"..Oh great, I was that girl, once again.
When people tell you that your accent sounded very Kentucky just then. I NEED TO GET OUT OF THIS PLACE! I refuse to get this Hey Ya'll, Kentucky accent.
Asking to help paint some stuff for a friends wedding..but not getting an invite. Some friend.
When people are over and Christmas songs keep playing back to back. (Sorry, I am not sorry. I love Christmas).
How I secretly love Kentucky.
Realizing one of the Best's not going to be home for the summer.
Being one of 10 Indiana University fans on a campus in a state of all University of Kentucky fans.
How hard I laugh, by myself, in my room, and my roommates come in and ask if I am okay. "Oh yea, no big deal I am just reading a blog."
When people are 20, going on 30 and ask me what my plans are for jobs and the future, "Uh, I am 20 and I wanna have fun and I have no clue where I am going in life", is how I always reply. I like it like that.

The weather today. It's absolutely stunning.
Getting lost in my work and loving the finishing outcome.
Dancing. It automatically puts me in a chipper mood.
Receiving those 3 words in a text from coach saying, "Practice is canceled." Hell ya!
Making Wednesday the new Saturday night. Who needs the weekends anyways?
Realizing you don't care about the rest of the semester. C's and D's get degrees, right?
Summer. With my best friend.
Kids coloring books.
Listening to new artist that sooth the soul.
My wonderful boyfriend. He know just what to say to turn my whole day around.
Being approved to live off campus next year. This is a HUGE deal to me!

Describe Your Perfect Date.

This is just the thing to describe the weather right now! Also, what are the odds that it is April, 25th? Damn you Cheryl Frasier, on all of your accounts of failure to answer the question intelligently, you have stated a wonderful description for today. If I was ever in a pageant, I would want to be exactly like Gracie Lou Freebush. I love this movie, maybe I will go watch it. Have an amazing day loves!

Goodies From Baskets

I understand that people say you must keep the real meanings of holidays in mind...but...I love Easter baskets! The colors of Easter just make me happy all around, and this year I couldn't be home for Easter. So, my mom sent me an Easter basket, which made me so happy because my it was in my actual basket that we use every year. Also, Nick's mom sent me a basket as well! She had it filled to the brim with chocolate covered strawberries, white chocolate raspberries, chocolate covered pretzels, well basically the bag had everything chocolate. How gorgeous are the strawberries?! They were delicious!

I Prefer Negative Nicki Over Nancy

I am a pretty funny forward person. By forward, I mean vulgar. One of my all-time, favorite things to do, is to laugh. I laugh at pretty much anything that is comical, and I don't mean stupid comedy. I hate, okay hate is a big word that is used a little too loosely, so let me compensate, I despise Will Farrell. I realize on that comment alone I will more than likely lose followers/readers. I am not over worried though. It's not like I have an undying amount of people checking out my blog on a daily bases. So, just for the simple fact that I don't enjoy anything Will Farrell, my blog views will drop from 10 to a mere 3. Okay, 10 is an over estimate, but you see my point.

This post may offend you, since I have a potty mouth and don't really give a rats ass at this point. I try really hard not to cuss on here, but it's one of those days and I don't give a flying fuck. You see, one of those days. Well the one thing that is keeping me sane and somewhat chipper are witty tweets and texts. A theory of mine, (which more than likely doesn't pertain to anything of importance, or makes sense, like many of my theories) to be truly funny, you must make someone actually "LOL"when reading. For example, laughing out loud over a billboard, tweet, poster, text, etc. Here are some that has got me going today:
"I hate it when people are at your house and ask 'Do you have a bathroom?' No, we shit in the yard."

Best: "Sometimes I hate everyone..."
Me: "I think I hate everyone everyday."

"I'm not saying I hate you, I'm just saying that if you got hit by a bus, I would be driving that bus."

"I'm punching anyone who says YOLO...I wish I could punch myself for just saying it."

"Everybody I know is either getting married or pregnant. I am just getting more awesome."

"You text him, he doesn't text back. He was obviously so excited that you texted him that he fainted."

"Now that soccer is over, I never know when to shower."

"That awkward moment when someone you hate is breathing."

And these photos..
And when looking back on this semester...
Like I said..today is just one of those days.

Well Played.

I think this says enough.

I Am Such A Boy Sometimes.

Lately, I have been a topnotch video gamer. One day, the roommates and I decided to try to do something other than sleep and watch movies (sleeping and movie time are some of my top favorite activities to do), we chose to play Xbox. We have a whopping 3 games to choose from: FIFA, Call of Duty and James Bond 007. Since we are all soccer players and refuse to play soccer outside of practice, we scratched FIFA off the list. Then it came down to Call of Duty and James Bond, and lets face it, James is such a good looking guy. So, we ultimately chose 007. Since then, we have developed a slight obsession of the game. We play nearly every day and it's brought into conversation multiples times throughout the day. We are becoming pretty awesome at it..for girls anyways. Bring it on boys.
At first, this was us. "How do you shoot?"--"I am lost and can't find anyone, where are you?"--"BOOM! Kill streak...shoot I just killed myself with my own grenade."...yeah, we said stuff like that.

Perfect Scenarios.

Today I needed a little pep in my step. I wandered across all of these online, and they just got better and better the further I scrolled down. I love pictures like these. They just make me happy, and they are so true! How was your weekend? These last few weeks of school are going to be ridiculous since there are only a few weeks left. It's crazy to even think that my sophomore year of college is about over. Wait, wasn't I just in high school? Ya, I thought so too.

Don't Let Anything Hold You Back.

I don't know what it's been about my life lately, but I have realized that I need to do things now rather than later. I'm young and these next few years are said to be some of the best years of my life. In college, it's hard to find your niche sometimes; it's hard to figure out where you exactly belong. Lately I think I am figuring things out, especially things about myself. Words, like the ones above, give me the initiative to realize that I need to stop worrying all the time...about anything and everything. I am, by all means, a worry wart. But, I am going to try to shake the insecurities and doubts off and just be free.

I Might Regret Sharing This Later.

I was able to go home for about 2 days for Easter break. I had to leave home to head back down to school to work, bright and early on Saturday, so I didn't exactly spend Easter with the family. I was kind of bummed that I wouldn't spend the holiday with my family, but I would never take back those two days I spent with them. We all met up with my dad to have lunch and then my mom and brothers ventured over to the Cincinnati History and Natural Science. I hadn't been there for ages, so it was fun to explore the museum again. I absolutely loved the Natural Science part. My family didn't exactly obey the rules of no touching or staying within the boundries. We have pictures to prove it. Hey, at least we didn't get tossed out.

For those of you who don't know this little tidbit about myself, I love wooly mammoths. Scratch that, I am OBSESSED with wooly mammoths. They are my favorite animal, and please don't start the whole "they're extinct" argument. For example, in high school a boy did a speech on a wooly, and I cried. Not just a little tear shed, I was in a full-out cry of happiness with tears rolling down my cheeks. You don't know what embarrassing is until you have that exact boy stop in the middle of his speech to ask you if you are okay and all the people around you are laughing. Ya, it's that bad. In fact, the picture I have standing in front of the one above, I am not going to share with you. Why you ask, because I was swelling up with all kinds of emotions and on the verge of tears. I love wooly mammoths. 
Isn't the size of this tree rediculous. Just to put things into perspective, my brother is about 6ft.
See, like I said, we did not stay off the exhibits. Oops.
Okay, so I explained above on my passion for woolies (that's what I like to call them). So, you should already expect that even if this was nearly impossible to get to and I had to literally crawl through the exhibit, I was going to get a picture with that dying wooly. Maybe it is wrong not stay within the railings, but at that moment of time..I didn't care. Sorryimnotsorry. Sharing my love for woolies with you is a big deal, hence my post title. I may regret sharing my obsession unconditional love for them. Oh well, too late to look back now.
 Yep, you caught us. Proof that we crawled under the railing. Most of these photos were from the ice age exhibit. It was the only exhibit we didn't stay within the path. Plus, it looks like you are free to roam..I think. I mean, come on, how could you pass up a picture with a buffalo?! The ground sloth was pretty awesome too. And by awesome, I mean HUGE!
This was one of the only photos I have of the History side of the museum. It covers the entire history of Cincinnati and this, I believe, was the first riverboat in the area. Don't quote me on that, I honestly just thought it would make a lovely picture.

There you go! That was my shortened Easter break at home with my family. Other than our venture to the city, we spent a majority of our time at home watching movies together. Oh, how I love family movie nights. They are the best. How was your Easter break?

Happy Easter Loves!

I greatly miss being with my family and dyeing eggs this year for Easter. Too bad I had to work Easter brunch down here in Kentucky, instead of being home for the holiday. I just adore the natural egg dye from Dreamy Whites. Why is everything so much more awesome when it is, al naturale? (you gotta say it in a cool accent). For those of you spending your day with your families, have a blast! Or, even if you are by yourself on this holiday, do something fun! Every year my family makes resurrection rolls. Have you ever heard of those? They are DELICIOUS! I could eat six of them (probably more). What are your family traditions? Feel free to share. Happy Easter everyone!

Got My Vans On, But They Look Like Sneakers.

I have been telling myself every day as I lay in bed, "Tomorrow, I will write a new blog post." Well, many days later, here I am. I tend to have that bad habit, for intense, "My diet starts tomorrow," or "Tomorrow I will wake up early and look at least halfway presentable for class." All of these turn out to be big ole lies, especially the part where I try to wake up early in order to look cute. Fail. Fail. Fail. It is a typical day on campus to see me rocking the soccer shorts, tshirt, hoodie and vans. If you happen to catch me with my hair in a bun and I am wearing tall socks, it is more likely going to be a rough day. Why do I always tend to catch a ride on the struggle bus?

Well, today I made the poor judgement of wearing a hoodie to my 8am class. I don't know if you guys have this problem, but the weather drastically changes from 8am to midday. It felt like I was on the sun. Stupid sweatshirt.

My life lately has consisted nothing but work, school, and soccer. And sometimes reading. I try to get in a chapter or two a day. I have finally realized I love to read books. I have never been a big reader, until lately. I just want to open a book, smell the musty paper pages and get lost in the story. I think I may be becoming a book worm. But I am okay with that.
