Day 3 @ Sunny Seaside

As my title states it is my third day at Seaside, and overall the trip has been very relaxing:-)
We leave this Saturday I believe, and I'll definitely be happy to be home, in my own bed, with my dog but Seaside definitely has a charm that I'll remember.
It's been really relaxing and that's what's different about most of my family trips.
Don't get me wrong, I have fun on family trips, it's just normally every day is planned out from start to finish with an agenda/itinerary each day, and while my parents are fun people, it gets exhausting
And sometimes my idea of a vacation is honestly watching Pretty Little Liars over from season 1 (which is exactly what I've been doing)
Because we have no agenda I have been able to enjoy myself at my own pace
My days have basically been: wake up whenever (anytime between 10:30 and 11:30) 
Eat (today I ate with my dad, but every other day it's been with my brother)
Swim/lay on a chair under an umbrella and read/swim/repeat
Go back to the house and shower
Watch PLL until fam wants to go eat dinner
Maybe go out walking/eat dessert/maybe come back home and watch more PLL and blog while fam are out walking/eating dessert
Play a game with fam (particularly Cranium/Balderdash)
Wake up
I'll write more as the week goes in but here are a couple favorites:
I Had a Meltdown on 30A (yummy grilled cheese/sandwich food truck)
Pickles (I personally like it but my dad said it was overrated, lol)
V Seagrove (very expen$ive)
Taco Bar (tacos were fresh but my fave part is that if you buy a drink, it's free refills all day:-))
Red Bar (even though they have a very small specific menu, the food is fabulous - the manicotti is amazing - my brother was basically drooling over mine and I gave him my leftovers - he said he wished he had gotten that instead haha)

30 Day Challenge - Day 26: If you had $1,000,000 to spend, how would you spend it?

Well, as a 21 year old in college, I would spend it on a house after I got out of college, and the save up for a rainy day. Idk, of course I would spend a lot of it on food, furnishing the house, and clothes, but I can't think of a really big purchase to be honest. Idk. The only real big purchase I could think of is a nice house

30 Day Challenge - Day 25: A person who fascinates you & why.

Alison DiLaurentis from Pretty Little Liars and Margo Roth Spiegalman from Paper Towns bc they are both mysterious:-)

30 Day Challenge - Day 24: Your favorite movie & what is it about?

Oh gosh, my all time favorite movie...??
That's really really hard to answer because it seems I have monthly favorites.
Okay. This is gonna be embarrassing but a movie I really can never get tired of:
Ironically enough
Grace Unplugged hahahahahha
I don't know why but I just love this coming of age movie.
Basically it's about this girl, Grace who is the daughter of a one hit wonder turned music pastor.
One day his old manager comes back to say that his one hit wonder has made a comeback and Sapphire Music (record company) wants to give him a job as long as he plays Misunderstood at every concert, but Johnny declines
So Grace covers Misunderstood instead and gets flown out to LA to live out what she thought was her dream (being a popstar and being famous)
But she doesn't realize the stress and pain that goes into stardom as Johnny said, "Oh you are not ready for this"
She eventually meets a guy named Quentin who is interning at Sapphire Music and he helps her come to the realization (over the course of the movie) that her dad isn't the bad guy, and that it isn't her against the world, but instead he thinks that she is fighting God
Grace bails from Hollywood and returns back home to Alabama and sings a heartfelt song titled "All I've ever needed" and it makes me cry my eyes out every time
Even though I did not grow up in a religious household, the father daughter dynamic is very realistic and the denouement at the end is so so touching
Plus the soundtrack, especially Misunderstood and All I've ever needed, is actually really good:-)

30 Day Challenge - Day 23: Post 5 pictures of celebrities you find attractive

Dermot Mulroney
Joseph Morgan
Daniel Gillies
Evan Peters
& Ruby Rose

Thoughts my brother thinks I have

"So me and my stupid family are at stupidside, oops I mean Seaside
Today it was so muggy and I was so hot and I blamed it on my family so I left because you know what, they're stupid and I'm hot
I had a pineapple mojitio tonight at dinner & I BARELY drank it in spite of my family (stupid)
It's my way at getting back at society
Less resources for the rest of the world
It only takes a snowflake to start an avalanche & I plan on being that snowflake:-)
We then went shopping and I aimlessly toiled around the stupid store
My mom wanted a hat so I told her to pick the ugly one so she would be ridiculed by her peers.
I then decided to get a hat of my own, but this hat needed to be delicious in every way
Not too casual not too formal but not too stupid
Apparently I'm now a "southern hot mess:-)"
I got this to symbolize how it was and how stupid my family is.
Then we went to my stupid neighbors big stupid house
They had 6 beds in one room, which was stupid
I went upstairs to challenge my feeble mind in trivia crack but my stupid brother kept me giving stupid (wrong) answers
Eventually my opponents grew weary and I ran out of pigs to slaughter.
I then had to resort to listening to my stupid family talk to my neighbors about stupid things like family and jobs
Finally we escaped that mental asylum and meandered the streets of Stupidside (oops I mean Seaside)
I took my 2nd shower to once again use up resources of this stupid earth to symbolize how hot it was thanks to my stupid family
Finally I come to end this dreadful day and lay my head to this pillow secretly hoping to wake up somewhere else less stupid"

30 Day Challenge - Day 22: One of your favorite tv shows




Friday, July 17, 2015


Currently sitting in a hotel room in Prattville, AL with my sister and her friend.
We are exactly 3.5 hours away from Seaside - this trip so far so good.
I'm sleepy and as you can guess I've taken my medicine:-)
I have a timer set for 15 minutes so I can remember to eat the other half of my twix bar - it's in the freezer
I'll be honest, I'll probably be asleep in 15 minutes so I will just remember in the morning
The car ride over went smoothly - we borrowed my trainer's mini van, it seats 7 and it was pretty comfortable. Much better than my mom's cramped Mercedes or my dad's equally as cramped Jeep
We had a Tahoe and that seated 8 but we gave it to bae
I listened to Taylor Swift all the way there - "Back to December" :'-(
My sister and her friend turned it on and I immediately turned and stared wistfully off into the distance
I'm excited to get to the beach, but we won't be able to check in to our beach house right away because they have to clean
Well, ab to listen to Stay Stay Stay, then listen to Cox n Crendor while I'm drift off into dreamland:-)
Oh speaking of dreamland, that reminds me of a personality island from the movie Inside Out, omg I love that movie
To me, that movie is better than Frozen!!!!
SN: Still never watched Frozen....
Anyway!! OMG when Bing Bong sacrifices himself so Joy can get back to HQ and he fades away (spoilers)
Famous last words: Take Riley to the moon for me" 
Well neway, goodnight werld

Hello all
I haven't written since my birthday, so I've been slacking a little bit
I'm going to apologize in advance because to be honest I'm on nyquil right now so my post is gonna be a little stream of conscious-y
This post has already taken me like 10 minutes to write because my eyes are falling and I keep getting distracted by Love Lust or Run
I love Stacy's jumpsuit
Did you know that I used to think that Stacy London and Clinton Kelly were a couple
Turns out they really don't like each other
I like Stacy's gray strand of hair
What does "follicular vitality" mean?? I heard a man on the tv say it???
It was a commercial for herbal essences and he was dressed up as a Native American??
That's a little...offensive.
I'm going to the beach tomorrow with my fam and my sister's 2 friends
Hopefully it will be fun
Tbh I don't even really know what there is to do at the mall, haha idk
I mean beach
We are going to Seaside
But at least I am 21
I can just relax with a drink (lol ya right)
Love Lust or Run is back on so I'm going to get distracted
Bye by friends

30 Day Challenge - Day 21: How have you changed in the past 2 years.

Two years ago (2013): I was graduating high school, wrapped up in my own bubble of high school drama and fear of going into college. I was an insecure wreck and I relied on an idiot of a "man" to validate my self-worth. I didn't hang out with anyone until I met bae.

Today (2015): I am a junior at Mississippi State University. I've made really really good friends and have rekindled relationships with some old friends. My relationship with Jorge has really helped to not only boost my confidence in myself as a person but also in my abilities. I'm a kinder, more gentle person with my family and I've accepted my niche at home. Overall, I'm a happier person even if I still do have my quirks/off days. 

30 Day Challenge - Day 20: How important education is to you.

Well, as I'm hoping to go into academia I would have to say that I think education is pretty important. Nuff said.

30 Day Challenge - Day 19: Your biggest regret in life.

All of 7th and 8th grade.

30 Day Challenge - Day 18: A book you could read over and over again and never get tired of.

I could read Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane over and over.
I LOVE the dialogue of the book - it flows so naturally, and it's almost like a movie in your head.
It's one of the smoothest reads I've ever had, and it's so easy to get into.
It takes place over the course of four days, but Lehane does such a good job at incorporating the past with the present & the twists and turns stay just as heartbreaking as ever.
You know it's a good book when you know exactly what is coming up and you know it's a creepy part of the book, but even knowing that, the words still chill you!!!
I could honestly read any of Lehane's books over and over - he is one of my all time favorite authors.
Highly highly recommend:
Mystic River
A Drink Before the War
Darkness, Take my Hand:-{ (bone chilling!!!)
Sacred (probably my least favorite but still amazing)
Gone Baby Gone

Also I can't leave this book out: Gone Girl. It's written by Gillian Flynn, but this is another great book with the same fluid dialogue and narration <3

Bae is best

Hello world and all who inhabit it
I am sitting in the mall currently with bae who is eating peppers:-(
Haha I hate peppers 
Anyways, he asked me to come to the mall because he wanted to get me something for my birthday (again <3)
So we parked at Belk and we walked in
And he decided to buy me a new wallet because the wallet he bought me before actually broke soo I thought that was really thoughtful
I got another fossil wallet but it was a little bigger and has lots of slots for cards <3
I'm blogging on my phone and I keep wanting to use emojis but I know that it won't show up on my blog so ugh
He just said "I'm so glad that I could get you what you wanted, that's so nice" 
And that just makes me happy
Material things don't make me happy but the fact that he goes out of his way to make sure I have what interests me makes me happy 
Best boyfriend ever js 
Anyway, I just wanted to make a short blog post to show my appreciation and I'll be better about posting more in the future
I just got a little distracted haha

Nice wallet:-)

30 Day Challenge - Day 17: Your highs and lows of this past year

Well, sometimes it's hard to talk about...
I guess the lowest point for me was when Jorge and I were separated (taking a break)
That was a really hard time for me, I felt constantly nauseous and alone even though he and I spent every day together. 
I don't know. There's just something about going from boyfriend to "friend" and it's just..no, like you're not my friend, I don't want you to be my friend...I want you to be my boyfriend!!!!
But when he asked me if I wanted to get back together (while I was covered in hot sauce because we were eating wings at Harvey's) I almost jumped out of my skin & screamed yes
And then he kissed me for the first time in a month and a half, and I just felt free <3
But with that low came a really important lesson
A lesson I'm sure a lot of people can relate to:
Especially the little things
A high point was when we got back together haha
Another high point was when my English lit prof said I would "make a strong English major" :-)
Oh yeah, and Christmas, that was pretty good

30 Day Challenge - Day 16: Your views on mainstream music

Bye John

30 Day Challenge - Day 15: Write 15 interesting facts about yourself

3. I am an English major
4. I have a very morbid sense of humor
5. If I get uncomfortable, I laugh (often times) very inappropriately
6. I enjoy sad/not happy endings
7. My favorite authors (poetry & prose) are Edgar Allan Poe and Flannery O'Connor
8. I used to be obsessed with British lit, but I've become more interested in American gothic
9. I'm currently watching Gypsy Sisters on TLC & wow they are dumb..."Well I would spell gnome: 'knome' duh"
10. I really really enjoy reality tv...like Toddlers and Tiaras, Dance Moms, SYTTD, etc
11. My boyfriend & I are complete opposites
12. I can be a handful (ask bae)
13. I cry at least once a day
14. I am a slave to my dog
15. I loveeeeee taking Nyquil/melatonin to sleep:-)

30 Day Challenge - Day 14: Your earliest memory

My earliest memory is when my brother and I visited my aunt and uncle in their cabin on Whidbey Island, WA. 
My aunt read me a unicorn book, and it actually scared me because a unicorn was slaughtered. I don't remember why it was so scary but it freaked me out.
I actually cried almost all night and I had to sleep with my brother
That night I wished upon a star (gag me ok) for a unicorn of my own...
The next morning I woke up and there was a stuffed unicorn on my pillow
I know now that my aunt bought it for me...but I wished upon a star IN MY HEAD
Meet Mystic<3
Look how cute she was:-)))

Eventually we decided to eat so we ate at Bayou Burger on Bourban street
It was reasonably priced and the food and service was gr8:-) and the air conditioning in that place?? 5 stars 
Then Jorge had been wanting to get another tattoo for a while and he wanted me to pick the shop and everything so that it would be a good memory that he could associate with moi:-) so I did & he got his name in Japanese on his bicep
(the good thing for me is that it is professionally acceptable and actually cheaper than I expected...like $100 cheaper than what I was expecting:-))
We walked there in first pouring rain (he bought an umbrella) then sweltering heat and we decided that we were not doing that again sooo we called a cab and got a ride to the aquarium because that's where everyone was
The cab driver was so sweet and he offered Jorge and I bottled water and when we made sure it was free he said that it was on him:'-) and then he told us how he was new to America and new to the job and how people were mean and scary and obnoxious:'-(
Shortly thereafter we left NOLA:-)
When we got back in Hattiesburg we ate at zaxbys and now we are at daniel's apartment because he was obsessing over making lemon squares 
I'm here for food but Jorge is here for games and company
Hahaha you can tell what's important in our lives

Well today was interesting today
I woke up at around 10 and alerted my mom of the crisis that was having Frieda Kahlo eyebrows on the day I went to see bae, ouch!!
So she plucked my eyebrows and it made my eyes water but beauty is pain </3
Then I showered and started packing/getting ready
Then I had that caffeine attack and it freaked me out
Eventually I left & enjoyed my drive to bae's
Not gonna lie, I listened to some old emo music that I used to really like
Someone take me to a My Chemical Romance concert...I'll go with u idc
I arrived in Hattiesburg & Jorge bought me Zaxby's wow
Much better than Abners js
Then he took me home & showed me the present he bought me as an early bday present
Story time:
I actually sent him the link to the forest nymph Alex & Ani bracelet from the Pursuit of Persephone collection and I sent him every bit of information about the bracelet except the price....
Turns out that's the only part he actually cares about hahaha
        "I could care less what it even looks like"
Ok bb

30 Day Challenge - Day 9: If you could have any job in the world what would it be??

Tbh, I really don't see myself being anything but a teacher...don't really wanna be an actor, don't really wanna be a singer...I could be a groupie because all I'd have to do is stalk bands:0) I'll just stick with teaching, & researching (as Jorge would put: =])

C ya friends:-)

30 Day Challenge - Day 8: A Moment You Felt the Most Satisfied with your Life

...ok??? IDK


Ab to leave to go to Hattieburg to see bae...
Would have left already if hadn't been stupid & taken not 1 but 2 hydroxycuts on an empty stomach!!!
I thought my heart was gonna beat out of my chest!!!
My dad was so sweet tho & got me some orange juice & made me something to eat <3<3<3
He even sat down & ate with me 
Love him
I'm feeling better now tho - I thought it was pre bae jitters (I usually get them when I'm within an hour from his house) but when it took me 10 minutes to get my earrings in I knew something was different

30 Day Challenge - Day 7: Your favorite childhood toys

Oh gosh...
 I'm going to limit this list to 5 because I could probably go on & on.

1. Aquapets
Really not sure what I even did with these things but wow, I was obsessed.

2. Tiny Toons Lola Bunny Doll
So this obviously isn't the doll itself but I remember walking around our townhouse with her own tow - I didn't go anywhere without my Lola bunny & then one day I woke up and she was gone. I couldn't find her anywhere...it still messes me up when I think about the hours I spent looking for her!!! </3

3. Fur real friends
I had this "dog" & the cat - I was veryyyyy attached to my fur real friends because as a child I was severely allergic to both cats and dogs. The dog allergy subsided for the most part now, but I still can't be around cats. I will get my roommates a fur real friends cat since they all want one so badly lol

4. 102 Dalmations Oddball Doll
After "losing" (She was stolen by some kind of demon) Lola bunny, I was able to pick a replacement from Blockbuster (back when BB was cool:-)) and I picked her because I had an obsession with dogs (what's new) & if you pushed a button on her back her tail would wag <3

5. Betty Spagetty
Betty Spagetty was number one - even over Polly Pocket. Polly was a little high up on the horse for me but Betty, she understood me

Ok, I don't know this baby's name but I do know she was my thing before Lola Bunny & Oddball!!! She was so cool. My brother had the same dinosaur but in green <3 & when you clicked on their chest they would say "grrrr, I'm a dinosaur!!!" and then they had a zipper on their back, and if you pulled out the "shell" you could invert the dinosaur so they would inside their egg! Then you could do the opposite & they "hatched"!! Like this:
Here is Mitchy's dinosaur half hatched!!!

30 Day Challenge - Day 6: Your zodiac sign & if you think it fits your personality

Cancer Personality Traits:
Emotional & loving
Intuitive & imaginative
Shrewd & cautious
Protective & sympathetic
Changeable & moody
Overemotional & touchy
Clinging & unable to let go

I do feel like these traits fit my personality:-)

This rain doe....

Woke up this morning to a very loud emergency alert...
& I feel like I will receive more.
It is pouring down rain right now...it literally came on so fast, like it sounded like a *huge* bucket of water just fell from the sky all at the same time
I mean...that's kind of what all rain is but it was loud & sudden
I'm a little sleepy
And I'm craving ramen but the rain has stopped me:
Like it knew "no eating late at night"
It's fashion friday on TLC so I am watching reruns of Dare to Wear, Brides Gone Styled, Love Lust or Run & SYTTD
Today Nadine came over & we went to Mugshots <3
Then Sydney & I went to Walmart with Meg (it was pouring down rain)
blah blah blah
Watching suite life of zack & cody:-)

30 Day Challenge - Day 5: Your favorite comfort foods & why

1. Popcorn - 
    Luv popcorn:-)
Light butter, movie theater butter, salted, cheesy, skinny pop
Popcorn's gotten me through a lot of hard times

2. Ichiban sushi - 
    There's almost nothing better than coming back from Stark once in a blue moon & booking it to Ichiban with Meg. I can devour crispy shrimp & a Cali roll, omg - my mouth is just watering thinking about it

3. Ramen:-) -
    Yummy...a little sour cream & soy sauce!!! MMMMM

Ending this post now bc I'm probably about to go make some ramen, c ya

30 Day Challenge - Day 4: Your views on religion

This video does a lot of the work for me, really
I couldn't have said it better or more eloquently but of course I am going to elaborate with personal stories:-)
Now for those who don't know (everyone) & the few who do lol, I'm not originally from the south, tho I do claim *insert city I live in here* I've learned a lot here - both good & not so good
Surprisingly, tho I HATE WITH A PASSION hypocrites & judgmental ignorant townies, I'm not jaded:-)
I'm studying religion at Mississippi State, (it's a minor, so it's only a handful hours, but I'd like to get my Ph.D in religious studies)
I've learned a lot of patterns about certain denominations (or demoninations) as I like to put it lol ok sorry
But that's not important when it comes to a vague overview of religion as a whole
My main views/studies are on religion as a cultural force & how people often* use religion to scapegoat an innocent faction of people (ie: homosexuals:-()
I also am interested in how people will read the bible LITERALLY >:-(
Now most people haven't been trained to read IN THE CULTURAL CONTEXT IN WHICH SOMETHING WAS WRITTEN
& that is something I don't blame people for
As an English major I BETTER BE ABLE TO DO THAT IN MY SLEEP lol or what the hell would I be in school for
But it's mostly the selective reading that pisses me off honestly because if you know how to read then you are to be held accountable
Now somewhere in Leviticus (not sure the exact chapter & verse - if u know it u can comment it down below idc:-)) they write about how "homosexuals" "blood will be upon them" but a few verses above/below it talks about not wearing mixed fibers, not planting seeds in the same whole & not eating SHELLFISH
Excuse me
Personally I feel if people are going to condemn people for loving someone (which is an abomination!!!!!) they should also be condemned for eating shrimp:-) but since that's stupid why don't we all just mind our own business?? No? Ok.
Now back to reading, anything, but for our purposes (the bible) in the cultural context in which it was written
Perhaps, just maybe, homosexuality was considered a sin (??) because in that time, the main goal was procreation...obviously, 2 men or 2 women can't conceive naturally, just not gonna happen, so that, the complete lack of procreation, was considered an abomination - not the fact that it's 2 men or 2 women
A man (not sure of his name, but I remember this fact from an AMAZING DOCUMENTARY "for the bible tells me so" on Netflix) was stoned to death for pulling out so he wouldn't get his partner pregnant...should people on birth control be stoned?!!!! (Some may think so, but for those who selectively read, I don't think u do - things to think about...)
This post has gotten off topic a little but it's very true at the core
My intention of this post was not to offend anyone...just posting my personal opinions

Summer Favies

Well, as I'm "watching" Katelyn "swallow" her selfie stick I'm trying to write a blog post so she has "something to read tonight"
So, Katelyn/fool, here ya go:

Well, I really haven't watched many movies this summer...
I watched the Duff with my sister & it was pretty funny <3
Meg & I watched Insidious Chapter 3, and compared to the first 2 chapters, especially chapter 2 it was just no...the only redeeming quality: Dermot Mulroney :-) and the return of Elise ("so that's what that was about")
I recently watched "Spy" with Nadine and I'm so glad we decided to watch that over Poltergeist
My summer faves for movies so far are honestly not the movies that I've watched in theaters...
It's mostly Grace Unplugged, Cyberbully & Mean Girls.

TV Shows:
    So okay: OITNB season 3 was released EARLY on June 11th, & since that date was looming over me, in my spare time ALL I did was rewatch season 1 & 2. I forgot how much I love the characters...& how much I hated Piper!! Ugh. Still to this day, I'd like to try minimum security (for 5 minutes LOL!)

The Originals
   Not much to say other than hey Klaus <3 & Elijah!!! Be with Hayley. & Hayley, even tho you're betrothed to Jackson, no. & Jackson, how can you even talk if you were cursed to be a wolf for the better part of every month. & Davina, you literally suck...and how do you stand laying around in bed in DRESSES all day. No.

Well I've mostly been relying on my BeatsMusic playlist but I've been really really into Lorde again <3
Luv my queen
& I'm a little ashamed but I've been listening to Miley Cyrus, "Trap Queen" by Fetty Wap & "Loyal" by Chris Brown
Haven't really listened to anything new...
& basically anything on Top Hits Radio &/or 90s Alternative radio

Beauty products/makeup:
I've been really into the Naked 3 palette...I love Chopper on my lid & Verve on my inner corner as a highlight
I usually use Glomineral products, but since I can only get them from my the laser center connected to my dad's clinic in New Albany, I've recently bought 2 blushes from Walmart - they're both NYC & they're both very* pigmented. Love.
I've also switched back to using a pencil eyeliner as opposed to using eyeliner and an angled brush - it's been pretty so far.
As far as my lips go, since it's summer, I mostly just use chapstick or this certain Glominerals lipstick (it's a little darker for a summer shade) but oh well!! Don't judge me.
As for my hair, I have changed it up a little: to make my hair more curly (like Lorde's!!!) I have started using a mousse by Garnier (it's so light & doesn't make my hair crunch) as well as Garnier Beach Chic Texturizing Spray:-)
To protect my hair from heat (of the blowdryer & possibly a curling iron), I use a Sebastian Trilliant Heat Protectant with a sparkle complex - sn: it smells like watermelon:-) If u want to purchase it you can buy it at Ulta (when I ran out I had a hard time finding it...)
OH & finally, the lifesaver: LOREAL Boost High Lift spray - spray a little on your roots, flip upside down, blowdry & voila <3

Clothing Items:
Since it's summer & in MS it's sweltering hot and it feels like you are breathing water at all times, I tend to stick to Nike shorts and a tshirt. My brother got me this really nice lavender 30A shirt from Rosemary Beach <3 It's one of my faves & Katelyn never fails to ask to borrow it. Yah right!
My mom bought me a Roxy kimono, it's very thin & so comfortable - love to wear it with shorts, a tshirt & some chacos or sumtim
http://imgau2.surfstitch.com/product_images/RJWT3022BTN7-ROXY-1.JPG (here is pic:-))
As for shoes, you can catch me in my white converse (with socks!!), my floral birkenstocks, chacos or Mossimo wrap sandals:-)

That about wraps up my faves:-)
C ya
