things that make me happy


i just read one of my favorite blogs by taza. she made a post about her favorite things right now. i also just watched a magical film called 'le fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain' (for the 50th time). after reading and watching these things, i can't help thinking about what makes me happy. here's my list so far:

ONE.
the unicyclist that rides throughout campus

TWO.
painting my nails

THREE.
getting unexpected messages from friends via facebook

FOUR.
getting unexpected notes (on my car or in my notebook) from a certain someone

FIVE.
when 'build me up buttercup' comes on the radio

SIX.
the fall breeze

i'm happy just writing this post! huzzah! what makes you happy? *cough* reading this blog *cough* JUST KIDDING! but, seriously...

Artsy

So i'm taking a basic drawing class this semester, and i've realized that i love drawing, but i'm horrible. We had to draw an egg yesterday and i think i spent more time cleaning eggs off the floor that i've dropped than my shading technique.

welcome to my head


so, i am almost done with my finals. I have to art history paper; one is due tomorrow at five (outline: CHECK) and then another one is due on wednesday at four i think :/ (have no outline. only know that my artist that i am writing on is french and very very sexy).
this past week has been super stressful for me, but i am luckily still alive (somewhat). i went and got a spray tan with my sister (don't judge me). i love her so much, even though she is soooooo indecisive when it comes to picking out plates for a baby shower. haha sar! AND it was my best friends birthday yesterday. i never get to see her because we are both super busy, so it was sooo much fun to hang out with her on her 22nd birthday.
honestly, i love my life and i am very grateful, but sometimes i feel like such a loser. i mean, i think everyone feels that way sometimes and it's ok to be a loser, but it can be hard. so whoever is reading this: it's totally ok to feel insecure and to feel that no one understands you, but YOU are the only thing that you have in this world, so love yourself for who you are. and don't let anybody change that. i'm slowly learning this for myself as well (fabulous hair? CHECK)

i hope your weekend was lovely

Spring asked me out, and now we are official

{Spring Poppies I by Susan Hazard}

i had a really good weekend (even though it was snowing. BLAH.) i got to hang out with some fwends that i haven't seen in forever, went on a daddy daughter date and saw HANNAH, watched Rebecca Black's music video and did absolutely no homework. SUCCESS!
and even though it's monday, i am feeling freakin' awesome! the sun is shining, school is almost over and i am in love with spring. it's not to hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket (name that movie!!!!). anyways, i hope all y'all have a fabulous week and do something awesome, like, call someone that you haven't heard from in awhile, or paint a picture of your favorite mythical character. i dunno...just do it as NIKE says.

p.s. i am completely sober, just really caffeinated right now...OH YEAH

Aaron the Canadian


So i am an idiot. it was my very very good friend's birthday yesterday and i didn't know until he told me on facebook chat. i am a total shmuck, but we all know this. anyways, enough about me. this is about on of my closest friends (even though he lives around the world practically), aaron.
the first time i met this boy, i thought he was a total douche, but spending time with him erryday for about ten months, i've come to love this boy.

so here are five things that i love about aaron:

1. he makes a mean cheeseburger
2. he got me obsessed with watches
3. he takes AMAZING pictures
4. he got me a "Hot Mess" cup for my birthday
5. he is an amazing friend

i love you so so much aaron! i am very lucky to have you in my life. BISOUS!
