Procastination, work, and more procrastination.

I've been so busy lately that I haven't even had time to post anything, I'm sorry guys. But in my defense I am back in school and have signed myself up for a class that I didn't realize was going to make me be the equivalent of a crazy person. I kind of knew what I had set myself up for when I registered for the yearbook but I also didn't realize that I would be thrown into it. But this is the real world, so I'm sucking it up and procrastinating on actually writing my first story, (it happens).

Tonight I am also starting my first night of work, and thankfully I managed to score a job that essentially allows me to sit on my computer for 3-5 hours at a time and troll the internet  and write, all while occasionally looking up to make sure people are going where they belong and whatnot. So I'm going to be flexing my multitasking muscle and writing and Pinning and working on my people skills, all while getting paid!!

I fully intend to write more slightly eventful posts as the semester goes on, but the semester has just began so the fun is only beginning!

The Fault in Our Stars is now mine!

My pre-ordered, signed, first edition of John Green's new book The Fault in Our Stars is officially mine! I'm going to probably torment myself and wait to read this when school starts up, but oh my gosh I'm sooooooo excited!

One more freakin' week

This winter break shit has gone on for far too long. Yes, last week was an exception, but that's only because my boyfriend came down and we had some fun with my family so it wasn't completely unbearable. Don't get me wrong I've had some good times with friends and even my family during break but I'm ready to go back home, to school.

Though there have been some good things that I have gotten to do while on break that will be helpful for returning to school, I have been a total sloth and didn't get out of my pj's for several days and while I can still do this on campus it was still awesome to do it at home and not have to feel rushed to do anything. Then again I was also accused of messing up my family's sleep schedule because my sleep schedule was still on college student time, so that wasn't so awesome (for them).

During break  I haven't completely stuck to home, a friend and I went to see New Year's Eve before the holiday and well I'm not going to lie, it was cute. Definitely better than the train wreck that was Valentine's Day, the only thing that that movie had going for it was the star studded cast. Then we went to eat and I have never loved the taste of fries as much as I did when I was hanging out with my friend just talking and laughing and people watching. It was definitely what both her and I needed, even though the insanity of the holidays was just starting to begin.


There are several things that I am looking forward to next week, besides going back home (school), my signed copy of "The Fault in Our Stars' by John Green comes out and my copy will come in the mail, then get to go to work with my mom for a couple of days out of the week to get some money for myself and soon after that I'm going to go get one of my friends that I'm driving back up to school with me and is going to spend the night on Thursday, then we're going to head up and begin the new semester!

Besides starting yearbook and other interesting classes and getting my financial aid in order I'm also hoping to get a job on campus or off as soon as possible. It would help soo much!

Are you ready for school to start back up? What have you missed?

The Boyfriend: An Introduction

Dear fellow Scatterbrain admirers,

     This is the boyfriend.  She asked me to write something for her blog a while ago and I promised her I would.  If the metaphorical bubble hasn't already burst, I'm not the perfect boyfriend as I should have posted before now.  That is not to say I don't try because I certainly do.  In fact, I'm in love with her.  Every day, I learn that she is even more wonderful than I thought the day before.  Nicole is both smart and funny.  Cute and sweet.  Goofy and attractive.  Kind and selfless.  Loyal and honest.  She has a beautiful smile that graces my eyes often and she cooks so that my taste buds water and my stomach is contently full.  She is definitely the most complete girl that I have ever dated.  I mean it when I say that I am lucky.  She the kind of woman that entered my life and quickly made me so glad that others left it.  The last four months with her have been truly wonderful.  I would write more but we have to go to lunch and a couple basketball games.  I will write again, and probably soon.  Until then, continue enjoying Nicole's blog and keep her company.

With nothing but honesty,

The Boyfriend
