What, Like it’s Hard?

True life fact: I want to be like Elle Woods someday.  I know that sounds ridiculous and that she’s a fictitious character, but still.  She’s kinda one of my role models.  I mean think about it.  She’s a woman whom no one expects much from, yet she gets into Harvard, works her ass off, wins a trial and gets the man.  Aka Emmett, whom I’m madly in love with just FYI he’s another one of my celebrity future husbands.  Here’s a picture of the guy who plays him in the musical:  

If you can’t tell, I’m kinda in love with him.  But it’s because he’s super adorbs and he has an AMAZING voice. But I digress…

 You gotta love it.  I mean I know I do.  One of my favorite lines from Legally Blonde the Musical is; “With the chance I’ve been given, I’m going to be driven as hell.” And I think that’s perfect.  It’s going up on my Motivation Wall.

This is it, it doesn’t have much so far.  It just has “Motivation wall” and a goal I have plus some letters I made.  It will have more soon once I start putting up my inspirational quotes. 

Here’s a close up on the letters:

But yeah that’s basically all I have to say about the wall.  Ohh, my sorority had a function where I got to get dressed up.  It was very exciting! I was even all vain and took a picture of myself and such nonsense. 

Mostly when I take these pictures I like to think; “It’s a good thing they aren’t going to be looking at my feet tonite.” Because straight up my feet are horribly calloused and blister filled from my running. 

Oh fun fact I got to have my first barefoot run of the season yesterday.  Well……….  partially barefoot run.  I only ran part of my run barefoot, but still it felt great.  I miss running barefoot, I can’t wait until it’s warm enough for me to do it everyday.  Anywho, I’ll show you a grimey picture of my foot.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Anywho, I’m jumping around from topic to topic I realize this, yet I can’t seem to help myself.  So moving right along.  I got to swim today for the first time since after the cold!! Yay me! Anyways, I swam a total of 2,000 yards.  Which I’m very impressed with for a few reasons:

1. I’m pretty sure I’ve never swam that much before.

2. I did around 1,000 yards of pull and I’ve never done that much at once.

3. I did it all in 44:10, which is pretty good because when I first started really swimming I could never do that. 

4. I’m pretty sure that if the pool hadn’t been as uber crowded as it was I could’ve done another 5oo to 1,000 yards EASY.

So let me finish this post with some pictures of my sexy swimming gear.  Please, don’t laugh too hard at my towel.

Yes, I do have a Barbie towel.  And yes I have had since I was around 6.  There was a little 8 year old at the pool with a more sophisticated towel than I had.  It made me feel a tad silly, but then again it’s ok.  Barbie is a classic. 
And then here are my bathing suits;

Yes  did say suits because I wear 2 when I swim.  It’s for drag and such (look at me using swimming terminology)

Anywho, I believe that is it for me now.  I’ve updated you on my life to the fullest extend I do believe.  And if I have left anything out I’m terribly sorry.  I will find a way to make it up to you.  So that’s it, until later TTFN.


Busy Busy Bee/ 2 decades

Well I have been a busy busy bee.  Do you like my alliteration?  Anywho, I went up to school officially on Saturday and moved myself in.  It took until the afternoon on Sunday to completely move into my new room.  Don’t worry I have lots of pictures, which are below.

This is the view from my window, if there wasn’t snow I’d be very tempted to try to climb out onto the roof…

This is my bed all made and junk, with lots of random crap on top of it.  It’ s probably not all that interesting.

My lovely closet that is ALL for me! Along with the WHOLE room. (Which is very exciting for me) I didn’t exactly enjoy my living situation last semester. It was like I had 2 roommates, my roommate and her bf….

But I digress…

Anywho, this is my place of studying and organizationalness. 

 Not very organized as you can see.

This is my workout wall and such jazz. This was taken before I put up all my race bibs and such so they are now  up next to my wall.

Anywho, I finally finished the beer can pillow and gave it to my guy friends.  And they loved it! I’m determined to get them to drink enough beer to think that it’s a giant beer can that they can drink.  Anywho, here are pics of it all done.  I even made a tab for the top!

As you can see I decided to make it a bud light can of beer, because that is one they drink the most.  And now here is the top of it.

 I made a fake tab to “open” the can. 

Also, since it was my birthday today (the big 20).  I decided to treat myself with my birthday and bought myself some fabric from the local craft store to make myself letters (for my sorority) with. 
Also, I wouldn’t spend much money on it and honestly all the shirts and stuff that I have now with letters on it have either been hand me downs or gifts.  But, I am placing orders for a sweatshirt, a t-shirt, and a shirt called a jock with my nickname on it.  I’m very excited, mostly because my mom can’t say anything about me spending the money because it was my birthday money and I never splurge this much (even though she thinks it’s a waste of money).  But overall it was a pretty good day.  Oh here are the different fabrics I got:

As you can see, it’s a wide range.  It has a decent amount of pinks because, well, it’s my favorite color.   And… oh! I got a free cannoli in one of my dining halls today because they heard it was my birthday/I told them :P.  But it definitely made my day.  So I belive that that is it for now so until later, TTFN.
