Random Musings

11 Sep

1. Fresh baked anything is better than store bought anything.

2. As classy as I hope to be one day (or pretend to be right now), I will always ALWAYS love a glass of cheap ass wine. I don’t know who these people are thinking I’m going to buy a bottle of wine for more than $7 dollars. On an unrelated (read: completely related) note, I’ve turned into my mother.

3. I received a take home test on Tuesday that is due this coming Tuesday (that’s a full week of possible procrastination people). I started this test on Thursday. This is new to me.

4. I’m quite behind on Jersey Shore. In my defense I’ve been watching the US Open. In the Shore’s defense, basically all the American guys/my favorite players were out by the end of the first week.

5. Sometimes I can’t decide who I love more: John Isner or Sam Querrey. And then I remember that I use to tape pictures of Andy Roddick on my binder in high school. And then I remember that I still watch the Disney Channel and can’t wait for the newsest episode of Jonas.

6. I think all guys should come attached to a guitar. And a tennis racket. But they should stop wearing tight pants. Just sayin.

7. I should talk about something that relevant to other people’s lives, shouldn’t I? But the only thing that I can think of is that crazy guy in Florida, and thinking about him makes me so mad so I won’t. I do realize there are other important topics I could talk about, but I am just not in the mood. No judging please.

8. I’ve decided that I want to live/work in a city where I don’t have to drive on a daily basis. This past week was horrible. Two near-death experiences and a flat tire. NO THANK YOU.

9. I’m obsessed with “beauty gurus” on Youtube. Seriously, these girls are like 15 years old but I need them to tell me how to put on my makeup.

10. The hardest decision I made last weekend (Labor Day weekend) was whether to watch Justin Bieber on Saturday Night Live or Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. I went with Camp Rock. For any new readers out there, I am 23 going on 12.

What I’ve learned from moving back home

17 Aug

I made the decision to live at home in Austin for my last semester at UTSA. Yes, this means I will be commuting two days a week but that’s not really bothering me as much as one would think. I was tired of paying (err, my parents were tired of paying) for an apartment, and because of my internships I was literally making no money. This meant I couldn’t go out with friends, I had to be really careful how I used up gas, etc. I will miss San Antonio, and leaving Jessica was super hard, but I know this is right for me. Plus, I eventually want to move to a city like Chicago or Boston or something like that and I want this extra time with my parents 🙂 PLUS, I have a full kitchen to my disposal 🙂 HELLO amazingly wonderful meals!

I’ve learned…

1. Packing and unpacking isn’t that bad when most of your life actually fits in your tiny little Ford Focus. However carrying boxes up and down three flights of stairs in 100 degree Texas weather is that bad.

2. Being able to wake up in the morning and know that I have everything I want and need to make a good breakfast is so wonderful. You have no idea. After a year of always running out of bananas or milk, this is heaven. Actually it’s not just breakfast, anytime I want food in my mouth is when this is wonderful.

3. Heaven is also always having my dog around to cuddle with.

4. When you’re living at home it’s okay to relax for a while. I use to feel a little guilty on my off days in San Antonio, but I’m more chill in my house here. Probably because there are so many couches and beds in this place!

5. Having a billion pictures of my family around me at all times is fantastic.

6. I can do Hip Hop Abs and not worry about bothering the people below me! However my parents will laugh at me, and they do so often. Whatevs, 6-pack here I come!

7. Getting up at 7:00 am to workout is easier when you know there is a beautiful trail behind your house you can run (or run/walk in my case) on. The friendly neighbors help as well. My kind of creepy apartment neighbors made me want to stay inside. Forever.

8. DVR. Enough said.

9. My dad’s iMac. Enough said.

10. Two words: Free groceries 🙂
