Alright so this might not be the best week I have ever had but it comes really close. I have really enjoyed being on spring break and relaxing. I thought that I would give you a little bit of a run down of what my typical day to day activities have been:

  • I do not like to sleep in too late so I usually set my alarm for 8:00. I have an Ihome so I wake up to music and lay in bed listening to music until about 9:00. I have not been listening to the songs on shuffle, lately I have been spending my mornings with Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn, John Mayer, and Jon McLaughlin.

  • At 9:00 I spend a little while watching Golden Girls, which is one of my favorite shows, during which I also eat breakfast

  • After this, I shower and prepare myself for the day by checking my e-mail and doing other important web browsing activities.
  • Around noon I go get myself some lunch and then watch a little bit of T.V., read, or browse the web for a while.
  • At 1:30 I head to work at the Boys and Girls Club.

  • After I get home I have some dinner and spend a little bit of time on the web and watch some T.V., usually ICarly (I don’t know what it is about this show, but I love it), or watch a movie.

  • When I feel like it is about time to go to bed, usually around 10:00 or 10:30, I read. Currently I am reading Belong to Me and I am really enjoying it.

  • After I read, usually until about 11:30, I turn on Golden Girls once again and fall asleep.

These days have been glorious, as you probably have determined from reading the about details. Tomorrow I am going to spend the day doing some homework though and then I am getting a massage, which should be amazing. I hope that everyone is enjoying your week!


I finally got that stupid thing notarized. Guess what…there was someone on campus all along who does notaries. Goodness.

I recently got a new job and I have to sign a contract for the job, get it notarized, and mail it in. I cannot get paid until I send it in and then it takes about 6 weeks to process it…needless to say, I have been trying to get it done so that I can get paid! Today, I decided that I should be semi-productive and get it done. So I get all of my stuff ready to mail off and all I have to do is get it notarized, which I was told you should be able to go to any bank and do it. So I get in the car, feeling rather merry because I am going to get this done, and I go to the first bank I see, about 2 blocks away from school.  This bank is a credit union so I am thinking that the chances of me getting it done here are slim, since they probably require that you have an account there, but I decided it was worth a shot. They denied me, as expected, but told me that the DOL next door does it but there is a fee of five dollars. Being the poor college student that I am, there was no way I was going to pay five bones when I could go to a bank and get it done there for free. So on my way to the next bank, I spot a closer one. I go in and they were so willing to help me, until they asked if I had an account there, which I don’t, so I was turned away again. I was still feeling pretty good though because I was now going to go to a bank where I have an account. I go in, they tell me they can do it, and I sit down feeling like this was finally going to get done. After the guy, who was very nice, looked at the forms, he told me that, actually, he couldn’t do it. He had never been presented with a form like this and he did not know if he was qualified to notarize it. In my head I am thinking, All you have to do is look at my license and social security card and say that they are legit and then watch me sign it and then you have to sign it…you are not qualified to do that? Do you not know what a driver’s license and social security card are supposed to look like? But I graciously left and I felt a little defeated but I was just going to have to pay the fee at the DOL, which I was willing to do just so that I did not have to deal with it any more. I get to the DOL and walk in. I looked up at the board which listed their services and the prices. There were several listings that were unrelated to me: car tabs, license renewal, etc. and when I finally found notary public with $5.00 listed next to it, I was excited that I was finally going to get it done. That was until I read the fine print underneath it. It read, Cash Only. My heart felt like it stopped, my face turned red and started burning, and that was when the real feeling of defeat set in. I NEVER carry cash, who carries cash anymore? I then thought, Oh I can just go to the ATM at the school and get some money. That was when I remembered that the ATM charges a fee and you can only get cash in increments of $20. I was fuming! What is it going to take for me to get this thing notarized?!

At this point I am just frustrated that I still have this darn thing sitting on my desk, just waiting to be notarized. I am having dinner with my mom tonight and I called her to tell her situation so I have some hope that tonight she will have a five dollar bill and solve all of my problems. After this, the only possible thing that could go wrong would be to have them tell me that they also cannot notarize it because they have never been presented with this kind of form before.

As you can tell, I still have a little bit of bitterness toward that poor man at the bank who was just doing his job. Let’s just hope that by this time tomorrow I will have that thing in the mail and out of my life forever, and that I never have to get anything notarized ever again.

Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins, was such an amazing book. This book is the sequel to Hunger Games and I loved Hunger Games but, in my opinion, Catching Fire was better! I would say that the books fall under the suspense category, with a little bit of a love story, and a lot of action! There was so much suspense and so many unexpected twists that I could not put the book down; I wanted to know what was going to happen next at all times. I love this series and the ending made me hungry for more (witty I know…). The third book comes out in August and I cannot wait to get it! I would love to provide a little description of the story line but I do not want to give anything away…You will just have to go see for yourself!

It seems these days that I have fallen off the face of the earth. School has been consuming all of my time and I feel like it has been quite a while since I have even typed into the browser And indeed it has.

I am on spring break! which is why I sit before you know writing this blog. I have been compiling a list of topics that I have been wanting to write about so that when this time came, I would be able to catch up on what I have been meaning to do for a while now.

First, of course, is The Bachelor. We all now know who Jake picked: Vienna. Jakes seems to really be happy so I really do not have much to say about the finale. I was just sad to see Tenley go, but she had so much class with the way that she left. Jason and Molly’s wedding was fabulous! I love them together and their wedding was so beautiful…it gave me lots of new and wonderful ideas for when my big day comes! Lastly, I am really excited for Ali to be the new bachelorette! She will be fantastic and I am awaiting May to come around so that I can fill my Mondays with the bachelorette once again.

On my spring break I have many things planned:

1. read recreationally. I have many books that I have been wanting to read, including one that I have been in the middle of since January.

2. Sleep. I have been rather sleep deprived these last few weeks and it will be fabulous to catch up.

3. Blog! Like I said before, I have several topics that I have been wanting to share and I am excited I finally get to get back into a blogging groove (if I was ever in one).

It feels great to be back and I will keep up on here for as long as I can. Once spring break is over I may fall of the face of the planet again, but come summer, I will return!

Have a great day!

First,  I would just like to apologize for my vacation from blogging world, it was very much unintentional. Life has been crazy and I have not had time to really sit down and post some useless very important reviews about The Bachelor. I am going to do my best to keep up on it from now on, I know that I have a lot of making up to do though, there is so much to post recently! With that said, lets get down to business…

So we all know that Vienna and Tenley are in the finale…I was so disappointed to see Gia go. The third person is always the best (especially the last few seasons). I am really excited to see who he is going to pick…although I already know. The overnights were all great, he fits so well with Tenley and they make the perfect couple, it is almost as if they were really made for eachother. I thought he was really weird with Vienna at their dinner. He asked her what kind of rings that she liked and then right after he kind of slapped her in the face and told her that they have to be realistic and there were two other girls that he was falling for…awkward! Really what I think it came down to with Gia was that she just could not say how she felt. I truly believe that he already knew who he wanted to pick a long time ago and now he just has to get rid of everyone else, but he started falling for some other girls along the way.

The Women Tell All was just another amazing week. I really liked hearing what all of the other girls had to say, especially Gia and Ali, they were so well spoken. Michelle was actually really awesome. I just admire her for saying that she was who she was and if people didn’t like it, that is who she is and she isn’t going to try to hide it. She was surprisingly put together. Rozlyn on the other hand, I think was very inappropriate, especially some of the things that she said to Chris. I don’t understand though, why they even brought her on, she has denied everything up until now so why would it be any different when she was on television in front of a huge group of people. They were just trying to stir things up I guess.

I am really looking forward to the finale in a few days and I am super excited for Jason and Molly’s wedding.

I hope that everyone is having a great week and I hope that your weekend is spectacular!

This week on The Bachelor was quite an eventful one, with not as much drama. I loved the hometown dates and the families were all pretty normal, which I think may be a first. My favorite hometown was probably Tenley’s. He was sooo awesome with her family and it was really sweet how much they connected with him. My least favorite, if you can guess, was Vienna’s; although I though that it was comical because it was very different from the rest of them. The dog, I must say, was ridiculous. I was really sad about Ali leaving, I really like her and I was shocked by the fact that she acutally left because of how much he was asking her stay….That would be a really hard decision to make, though. Personally I think that I would have stayed. Although it was sad, it was also really admirable of her because sometimes people come on these shows and they just throw themselves at the bachelor/bachelorette and it seems they will do anything. She will find someone eventually though, she seems like a really likeable girl who can meet people easily. I think this may be my shortest review yet…It is hard to remember what happened on the episodes when you procrastinate.

On sort of that same note, my head feels like it is going to explode. Spring semester is in full swing on only the second day and I am feeling very overwhelmed. Luckily I have a nice long five day weekend, which should give me a good amount of time to get caught up on the amazing amount of work that I have to do before next Wednesday.

In other news, I am super excited for a dance audition that I will be attending on Friday! I have not danced in so long and it is going to be really nice to get out there and do it again. It is just for fun for a show that PLU has in April. I am really looking forward to it and I will most definitely let you know how it goes.

Lastly, I am sorry that I have not posted any book reviews yet. Last week I finished another book and I am half way though another one (so I owe you a few reviews)! No worries though, I will try to find some time this weekend and hopefully I can inspire someone out there to read the wonderful books I have been enjoying lately! I hope that everyone has a great ending to their week!
