15 Things that I am currently in Love with..

1.'s weird to start off saying this one first but it's true. I love that I am bettering myself and meeting new amazing people along the way. I hardly even go home on weekends because anywhere outside of my new "community" has become slightly foreign to me.


3. 500 Days of Shaneiferd- a fellow blogger/college student just trying to balance everything without spilling too much.

4.This post by A Cup of JO, whom I just recently found out is actually a blogger for Glamour's online blog Smitten. I love that!

5. Sitting next to my boyfriend in bed, him reading the paper and me writing or vise versa. Which ironically is happening as I write this post. <3

6. It's like all of my dentist's hard work was for nothing, but I intend to brush my teeth hardcore for the next three months. om nom nom

7.  Banana Nutella Crepes, I tried them for the first time when I met the boyfriend's family for brunch a few weekends back and this was the only recipe that I could find that's close enough to what I had.

8.  Sleep. As a college student this is like air and man have I been taking it in! In between classes and after homework of course.

9. My family for everything that they have stood by me for and for everything that I have put them through.

10. Halloween!! It's my Christmas, plus who doesn't like the fact that one night out of the year they can be someone they're not?   Case in point: I'm participating in my school's Haunted Hall this year and I get to be a "crazy person" I'm super excited!!  Then at a costume party for another school event the boyfriend and I are going to be Kate and William.

11. I'm going to look into writing for my school's newspaper, starting slow as a contributor and working my way up hopefully.

12. this video by WheezyWaiter, because he's awesome!

13.  My RA, because she's pretty much the coolest person ever!

14. My boyfriend, he's pretty awesome and he and I balance each other out quite well. Plus, on my crazy girl days he's there to hold me and keep my thoughts at bay.

15. Myself! Not in a conceited kind of way, just that after EVERYTHING  that I have been through I still have managed to keep myself sane this whole time, or relatively sane.

Words and things..

Sorry I've been such a slacker on posting lately. I've been writing posts but they only make it as far as the drafts file and it really sucks because I used to be good at this whole blogging thing.. You'd think that being in college that I would  be rife with material but sadly that hasn't completely been my case this year. I have a lot of stories that I could/would share with you guys, but some are not mine to tell and well I don't want to get in trouble for practicing my right as an American so I just stick to writing huge research papers and creeping other people's blogs for inspiration.  But what I can tell you guys is that...

While in college I have;

Learned to appreciate Nicki Minaj more so than before, especially Super Bass. I'm a sheep that's a sucker for catchy stupid music.

Started to absolutely loathe and detest country music for the most part, mainly because my roommate insists on listening to it (and having a night light) on to sleep with. Suffice to say I arranged my side of the room around to keep my sanity.

Changed my sleeping habits considerably, instead of going to sleep early-ish  like I initially planned I usually fall into bed around 3AM, all I have to say to that is thank goodness for Einstein brothers and coffee carts.

Met SOO many amazing people, fellow nerdfighters, bloggers, foreign exchange students (I've met a Russian and a Brit and didn't even have to cross any oceans to meet them)  and everything in between. I love it so much!! I knew that this would happen but I didn't realize that it would really ever happen to me.

Finally traveled to another state and went on my first road trip to Nebraska with some people from my hall, their friend and my boyfriend. I finally saw a good portion of the famous Omaha Zoo, had a taste of Runza and other Nebraska fare. It was a great experience and I can't wait to do it again. I am also going to try and post pictures of that eventually. Midterms are next week so I'm going to try and get as much as I can done.

Okay, that's about all I could think of for now...what are your best college experiences?

I want a nap...instead I have to write a HUGE paper

I'm super busy with school stuff, and not getting enough sleep AT ALL but I shall return to slightly regular posts hopefully soon. Definitely around Halloween!

I love you guys by the way.

Sometimes a little white lie is necessary.

Case in point: I am currently in the boyfriend's dorm with a "stomach ache", okay it actually kind of hurts but that's besides the point. Our school is having a football game tonight and since my body seems to barely tolerate Missouri weather *on a good day) I fibbed a little and told the boy to go without me and enjoy the game. Plus over the past two weekends I've been subjected to more football then I really cared for.

So now I'm here, in his room listening to Florence and the Machine and deciding what to do for the next 2-3 hours.  All that I've come up with so far is:

-read more of The Perks of Being A Wallflower
-watch a movie even though after the game that's our plans anyway.
-I would do my homework if I had my computer here but I forgot it, so I'm doing it tomorrow.
