wrapping it up

I had a wonderful week last week. For one, my face went back to normal for two days (it’s kind of weird now, but I’m hanging in!). My two bridesmaids Kathleen and Rachel drove up on Thursday from Texas, and Catherine came in on Friday! My lovely girls threw me a shower at Cayli’s house on Sunday, after we WON Kappa Sigma dance (and the entire philanthropy week!). I’m going to have to make a separate post about the shower soon because everything was so perfect. They’re the best 🙂

You can see the video here!

Only one girl fell off the stage, so it’s all good…haha but really, she’s okay.

It was a great weekend, full of no homework.




Sunday night I remembered to check for a presentation in Global Energy Decisions. Yep. There was one due in 15 minutes. Whoops. You live and you learn. I presented it today.

Justin is the best, of course, and we went to dinner yesterday because I was hungry, and he also surprised me with an adorable card, flowers and chocolate! Plus a walk around the park, where all the tulips are in bloom.


I have a test tomorrow, that I am currently (obviously) procrastinating studying for.


That phrase always makes me think of this song:




Best Two Out of Three

So. I have this theory.

I read this awhile ago over at Total Sorority Move.

Here’s the highlight: “I’ve maintained for many years that there are only three basic components to beauty: your hair, your face, and your body. Here’s a secret: guys can only see two of them. I know, I know, that sounds absolutely insane, but it’s true.”

Is it…?I’ve asked some boys about this. They tend to disagree, because they said the face is way too important.

But here’s the deal. I see this in my own routines. Not necessarily to impress boys (HA), but just in life. I will subconsciously do my makeup to counteract and distract from my hair being gross (eg TODAY). All in all, I realized I’m almost never 100% put together. It’s a cute outfit, or makeup done, so choose wisely. My hair, however…is a toss-up. Since I don’t do anything with it, it’s either clean or dirty. Not much else to be said there.

I’m voting a big YES on the premise of this “article.” Because while I was reading it, I was self-identifying without even knowing it!

What do you think about this idea? Are you a compensator, or do you look nice all the time…?

Friday Test – Low Key

I don’t have my schedule on me, so I’m winging it…

8:00 – Wake up. I HAD to take a shower. So I did that before class. Thank heavens.

9:00 – Class. I made it. I was for suuuure not dedicated to the class 100%, because I had to keep working on my memo that wasn’t done.

10:00 – Class. Workshopped out memo, but we mostly just hung out and chatted…

11:00 – Eat lunch. Then I cleaned out my closet, and opened up my winter clothes (brrrrr.). I had plenty of time to do this, so that was nice chill out time for myself.

1-5 – Work – I caught up a lot at work, and also wrote my blog about Thursday…Found a funny blog today, so enjoy THIS.

5:20 – Picked up Rachel, we ate dinner at TGI Friday’s for something different. Then we went by the store, and got ready for our function tonight!

7:20 – Hung out at Katherine’s before the function

8:00 – The function was kind of weird, and a lot of people were gone due to Oktoberfest, but everyone matched, so it was kinda fun (it was Wimbledon themed):
IMG_0794 IMG_08009:30 – Riley, his new little Colton and I went out for ice cream.

I got home, hung out with Maggie, Sarah and have now just been watching YouTube videos for AWHILE. It’s 2:35 am and I don’t even feel sleepy. What is my life…

Sunday Test – Rabbit

Today, I felt like this guy:

So I guess the best way to to this is show you my intended and actual game plans for the day.

Study Strat Management, do devotional and take medicine to Walgreens to get fulfilled. I woke up at 9 (alarm didn’t go off, sucks), and this was all accomplished before church. On the way home from Walgreens, I picked up J and we left from there, so I was a little bit unprepared at church because I didn’t have my Bible. But at least I was dressed, ya know? I think I could have studied more, but I scanned in all the pages I hadn’t read yet, so that was an accomplishment in itself. Would consider this COMPLETE.

Church and Bible study with J. We did this, and even had about 15 minutes to spare so we just sat and talked and smiled at each other. Gross, I know. COMPLETE +15.

Fix Compassion International Account, print articles for Poli Sci and check wedding email. No emails, articles printed, and I even had time to ship off an email to my sponsor girl. I also got dressed for flag football. COMPLETE.

Co-Ed flag football game.
We won. and crushed ’em. Because of me. Obviously. COMPLETE + WIN.

Read for Poli Sci. I neglected to notice that this is also when I should do things like eat food. I was home and reading by 4:37. I was slightly distracted part of the time, and didn’t finish my reading. But I did eat, so that’s good. And wrote 7QT on my phone. And even had time at 6:30 before 6:45 practice to write two thank you notes that weren’t in the plan and organize my binder early. Definitely did all these things and more, but reading not completed. I have allotted an hour tomorrow to finishing POL before class and so it should be able to be handled. I’d consider this COMPLETE.

Flag football practice + game. We lost (bummer), but ended at 8:27. COMPLETE

Shower and stuff before chapter. NOPE. Someone was in the shower. This is where my life starts going downhill…

Organize Binder…good thing I already did that…

Chapter. This was fine, except then my pledge class decided to have a separate meeting afterwards that lasted until 9:57.

Walk with J. NOPE. I told him he could come over while I was cleaning the kitchen (another thing I did not factor in.) He came over at 10:05, and he talked to me while I cleaned the microwave (I love him.). Then we sat on the porch until 10:25. He’s a trooper for letting me stick to my schedule. I wish we could just not..

Check social media, blog, 7QT, write organization email. I am not sending out an email. I’ll do it tomorrow when I have more information to send out in it. I checked my facebook and had 19 notifications. It was wonderful. So here I am blogging. I’ve got to go brush my teeth.

TIME: 11:012

Saturday #1: Control

I had planned on sleeping until I woke up, honestly. (ie no alarm)

Rachel wakes up yelling at 4:15. There’s water pouring all over her bed/head from the rain. She sleeps outside for a couple hours.

I wake up and lay in bed for awhile. I try to find a place to take my car in.

I took my car into Firestone at 11:30. They recommended at least 2 new tires, so I just told them to do them all. I went across to the mall while I was waiting (a long time!). I bought a pretzel and studied strat management for an hour and a half, wrote out my rigid life schedules for next week, and went shopping for a little bit. I bought two pairs of jeans (that one store-that-I’m-embarrassed-to-say-I-still-shop-at-because-I’m-22-years-old-but-it’s-the-only-place-I-can-wear-jeans was having a sale.) and a sweater (from somewhere slightly less embarrassing).

IMG_0712At 2 ish, Justin came and we had a late lunch together and then my car was (finally!) ready. It’s so shiny. I need to give it a car wash. Poor thing deserves it. I now have 4 new tires! And they’re aligned and I also needed an oil change. Yippeeeee!

We went back to his apartment and I studied more strat for awhile, but then got sleepy. We both ended up falling asleep (he was on the floor!) for about an hour at least… For new member retreat, they all dressed up like “tacky tourists”, which a lot of people took to mean “like a dad.” It was so funny. I borrowed Justin’s cargo shorts, and the fact that they were too big just made it even better. I made easymac when I got back to the house!

Then we went and “crashed” the new member retreat at 9 in our outfits. Maggie and I had fun running around playing tourist around the house…It’s embarrassing. But here’s my cute little touristy family:


and here’s my outfit in all its glory + my roomie:


We made a Sonic run on our way home, I showered, got in bed and wrote these past three posts. Whoooops.

Tomorrow morning is an early one, an 8:30 to start getting ready for next week, and continuing to study for strat. YAY.

Peace, yo.

Current time: 1:42AM

Expected asleep time: 1:57AM
