Another Apology...

Here it goes, another apology to whomever is reading this--probably no one, so then to myself for being so inconsistent yet again.

I guess I can blame it on school... I do blame it on school. This semester has been rough, because I am taking all upper level classes this semester and have zero time to blog. And let's not even being to talk about my classes for next semester.... remember my evil professor for advanced comp? Yeah, she will be my professor again next semester. Kill me.

I will try to post pictures later today of what I've been doing the past couple of months if I am free.
But hallelujah, I will be going home early next Friday for Thanksgiving break.

Wake Me Up When September Ends...

And to which no one did this morning. I've been so busy with school that I have not written any posts in such a long while, so excuse me for that!

I've been reading and reading and actually reading for my college literature classes for one in my life, unlike past semesters when I just briefed them through.

That's all I can write for now since I have to prepare for my presentation for American lit tomorrow, and watch Mean Girls for film, and read Shakespeare for brit lit, oh and study for my world civ test and start writing a paper due Friday, oh and then last and least... study for a quiz and a test by the end of the week for criminal justice, oh wait, one more, and my internship!!!!!!!

September blues...

I've been in school for about a week. In that time, I've been busy. Super busy. So busy that I'm typing this post on my phone as I sit on the toilet. (tmi, sorry.)

Let's take a brief overview of my classes...

American lit 1: torture but tolerable
World civ: tolerable but professor has too many expecting for a 1000 level class (yes I have to take a 1000 level class to fulfill the need of my minor)
Brit lit 1: tolerable... I actually enjoy it
Film: MY FAVORITE
Criminal justice: eh
Internship: LOVE.

Okay, that's just a quick little update. I will go into detail once the stress hits and I need to vent about it.

But let's take a second to appreciate my cute theme I have established on my insta feed over the last week or so since moving back to Arkansas.

It's almost that time

Thank you, Jesus. The week has finally come. I am going back home to Arkansas for school this sunday! I work M-f this week, stop by the DPS on friday, celebrate my sisters birthday and off I go.

(Terrible grammar and punctuation due to posting this from my new phone. See photo.)

5 Second Thoughts

You know you're old when you get excited about your plant growing. I bought this aloe plant at Lowe's and it was literally a babh, and now I'll need to repot her. Just some thoughts...

And how is it already August??

Dog Sitting

Like I said in a post a couple of days ago, I am dog-sitting for my cousin. I'm staying at her place and watching her two fur babies while she's on a road trip. 

This is Boomer. He doesn't like to share his toys, but he is the sweetest. He follows me everywhere and insists on sitting right next to me. He also had a foot fetish and he'll just play with my feet, LOL. 


Trying to watch Gilmore Girls and blog, but Boomer insists on sitting right next to me. 

Gabbana. The princess is relaxing and napping. She is occasionally barking at the television screen. I really think she can understand them and she enjoys watching tv. 


4 Ocean for the Ocean

I recently discovered a company called 4Ocean. The company is dedicated to cleaning up the ocean, and they sell bracelets made of 100% recycled materials. "The 4Ocean bracelet is made from 100% recycled materials. The exact material used to make the cord is called RPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate, also known as recycled water bottles) and the beads are made from recycled glass bottles. The 4Ocean charm that is attached to the bracelet is made from stainless steel" (4Ocean). Click here for more info on the bracelet. 

I think it's awesome because with every purchase of a bracelet, 4Ocean promises to remove one pound of trash from the ocean. Yes, I know there are always those people (myself included) who think, "Oh, what will that do to help?" But once you get the word out and people become aware of the situation and the cause, it can grow from there. You have to start somewhere. Damage in the ocean is human-caused, and it is only right for us to fix it. 


I bought my original royal blue bracelet a couple of weeks ago, and then the shark conservation bracelet just recently (just in time for shark week). As far as I know, there are a few other different colored bracelets--earth day (green), world ocean's day (turquoise), and another with white beads that I am not sure about. 

The bracelets cost $20 each, plus shipping, but they also are insured for one year after the purchase date, so if your bracelet gets damaged in anyway, they will replace it for free. :)

Help save our oceans!

FILM ADAPTIONS

I am currently screaming. Internally, of course. It's 1 am and I am supposed to be sleeping. I am screaming because I just found out that To All The Boys I've Loved Before is becoming a movie. 

Like I said, I am screaming. 

I read the books about two years ago, and I absolutely loved, loved, loved them. I am so happy. I am not sure about how I feel about the cast yet... Jesus from The Fosters as Peter? I never pictured that. I have this love/hate relationship with books that I love turning into movies. Sometimes the movie ruins it, or makes it even better. It makes it better so that I can actually visualize the characters as I read the books, because before anyone is casted, I can only picture the back side of someone's silhouette as the character. 

Anyhoo, I am so excited for this movie. I just wish that Han's Summer Series books were being made into a movie, or even a television show--I've been waiting for literally years, since the seventh grade. I just wonder how they will shoot the film... 




Hopefully the next couple of days I will be able to post more book reviews, because I will be going on a mini vacation--more like a staycation since I'll be house/pet-sitting for my cousin for almost a week. 

Summer Updates..

As always, I have been MIA. I've been working.... barely. But I've been watching Netflix and doing other stuff... also known as nothing, nothing really at all. 

Today is my day off of work. Woo. I went to the optometrist's office today to get my eyes checked for new contacts. I cannot believe my eyesight has gotten to be so bad in a matter of just a year! I like to wear Daily's Total One. Those are the pair I am wearing right now. I've worn these before, in high school, but I took a one year hiatus due to funds, but hopefully I can get them this time, so I don't go back to school and get another glasses tan like I did last fall. 

The picture is inspired by the one and only, the wonderful--JT. If you are not still obsessed with 20/20, who are you?


I think in a previous post I mention that I have a new obsession with Happy Planners. It's a good and a bad thing. I'll keep my life organized. This past school year I did not use a planner because I suck and I wanted to not keep up with my life, so it led to me being behind on everything. It's probably because I like cute stuff, I used Lily Pulitzer the two years before, but I swore that brand off after my freshman year of college because I told myself that I was going to try to look more adult.  

SO, maybe it'll help me get my shit together or maybe not. Here's the bad... it's expensive. This is not a cheap hobby. Buying stickers and supplies for it is expensive. I went a little overboard, but not as overboard as I thought when I joined a group on FB who share the love of Happy Planners. 

I will have to do another whole post on the planner, because that is another story... 


until then, 
D.

Vacation Photos

Okay... I've finally had a little break from my work schedule and I am uploading some pictures from my trip to Myrtle Beach.



The top two photos are from the first night we arrived in MB. It was a long 18 hour drive. We drove from Broken Arrow, Ok through Arkansas passing through my school then through Little Rock, Memphis, Birmingham, Atlanta, and then we passed through Covington and Conyers where they shoot TVD and TO, then through Columbia, and then finally making it to MB, SC. These photos are from outside of our hotel door. We stayed at the Blue Hotel and it's right on the beach. The rooms are okay... We got a hotel room big enough for 8 people. So, when you first walk in--there are two beds, then you go into the hall way and there is a small kitchen nook, and then a hall way to the bathroom, and then a small living room with a bed that comes down from the wall, and then a futon, and it also included a balcony. The hotel is not like normal hotels where you get into your room from the hallway--as soon as you step off the elevator you are outside and it's more of an outdoor hallway, but it was nice because as soon as we arrived, there were fireworks there to greet us. 

 This is the strip of beach right outside of the hotel. This is right after all the rain cleared up, and the hot lifeguard was no longer there. (My sisters and I met a hot lifeguard with an incredibly sexy accent.)


This is a picture my sister snapped of me with my brother's boogie board and a snorkeling thing I bought from the store in hopes of finding perfect seashells and starfish--no luck. The only good thing about those goggles was that it covered my nose and when those waves tried to take me under, I wasn't choking up a storm afterwards. 
A picture of a wave that I snapped with my phone while on the boogie board--I promptly crashed afterwards. Once you go far enough, you can ride the waves and it's so much more serene, peaceful, and fun. I did go just far enough, as well as my dad, but we saw 47 m down right before this trip and sharks were also spotted a month earlier, and I didn't want to get my leg bitten off. LOL. 

The view outside of our balcony. 

At Myrtle Beach State Park. I'm waiting for John Tyree... 

The Pier at MBState Park. 


Cute crab we thought was dead--after snapping this photo we found out our little friend was very much alive. 

My older sister and I. Look at my beach hair... actually its the rain + saltwater + frizz = this mess. 




There are more pics on my instagram and on my facebook as well. 




I should be posting soon about my new obsession that I cannot wait to share.... who am i kidding... I will share now.... HAPPY PLANNERS. 


See ya.
