This could have possibly been the worst week of my life. To start things off, while in a moment of pure kindness, I lost $500.00 of my parents vacation money while trying to clean the house and suprise them. Next, while scrambling to get to work on time, I backed into my dad's truck and consequently make a HUGE white scratch down the side of the driver door. When I got to work, I got complaints from a customer about some cookie jar I had painted them(which by the way looked AWESOME if I do say so myself, and It took me like a billion hours to paint it...and which they didnt even pay full price for cause they are rude and mean and cheapskates) and so I had to figure out, in my anger, how to freakin fix this thing for them which was only messed up because of THEM. They wrote something wrong and so I painted it how it was written...but somehow that becomes my fault, right? anyway....then in an attempt to study for my SATURDAY MORNING 7:30 a.m. final I realized I was 30 minutes away from my notebook which I left in my car and it was freezing outside and I didn't even have some essays that I needed to write an outline for my final which was HALF of my grade for the semester in the hardest class I've ever taken.....

But on the bright side of things, I have come to realize alot of important things this week as well. Love is so important. People are important. Realtionships are important. God has blessed me beyond measure. I am confused and astounded everyday by the love and grace that he rains down on my life. I am so undeserving of anything good, yet he continues to give and give and give. He heals my broken heart and renews my soul every day and without hesitation. What kind of love is this!? No matter what kind of shennanigans I get myself into, He is always there, in control and still willing to surround me with his love and His patience, and His peace.

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:"For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Ummmm wait, WHAT FINAL?!

I am officially done with studio for the semester..THANK GOD. I didn't think I was ever going to make it. Anyway, I woke up terribly early this morning to get to my weightlifitng class, walked in the door, and my teacher was like "oh, and you can turn in your final projects right here"...and I was thinking in my head, "ummm WHAT FINAL PROJECT?!?!?"....so yea I went to class today and didn't have my final done....I mean, I actually had NO CLUE that we had a final in weightlifting. I mean, seriously people. So after that "baby panic attack" as my bestie Ashley calls them...haha...I got my composure and proceeded to work on my studio project, due today at one thirty, and not even started. Yes, I think that I am very proud that I can effectively pull an entire project out of my butt the morning it's due. I think that I have a gift, really. And I mean who knows what kind of grade I'll get on it, but I don't think that it really matters as long as it's DUNZO. I am so unmotivated and I am ready to be done fighting through the semester. One more day and one more test and I am officially free to enjoy a much needed break!! Peace and Love.

No, I'm not a doctor, but I did watch Grey's Anatomy last night...

I've been recently introduced to the Grey's Anatomy phenomenon, and since this summer I was slaving away being an intern (at the most amazing firm ever by the by) I never really had much to do except sit at home and watch ALL the seasons of the show thus far...and needless to say I survived my boring summer and became a fan. When it first got big I didn't really watch it. I'm not really into this "everybody else is doing it" kind of thing, and I just had to wait it out and decide for myself to finally give in to the prodding of my friends...and I AM ADDICTED. I mean I know sometimes the story lines are kind of out in left field, but I think it has something to do with the fact that I WILL NEVER be able to do anything medical in my life while lookin hot and hookin up with my hottie-tottie boss. It's such an unrealistic world I think, but maybe that's why I like it. It makes me feel smart, and it makes me feel like I can diagnose any kind of sickness that people have.  So, if you have aches and pains, or your insides are bleeding, come and find me and I will totally tell you what's wrong with you. Even if I'm wrong, I'll still sound cool like the Meredith Grey I wish I was.

P.S. Prom episode anyone? I miss Denny.

You Should Know...

I'm kind of obsessed with music. I plan to have a dinner party one day where the following musicians would attend-

My first love, Gavin Degraw...of course.

imogen heap

mates of state

kings of leon

hello saferide (thank you AGP)

jamie lidell

 the quirky but always charming, jason mraz

alexi murdoch

amos lee

I mean, I guess I'll just have my people call their people and then I'm sure that we could work something out (my school schedule permitting, of course). I was thinking about it today and all the amazingness that would ensue from a gathering of this sort.

Well, anyways now that I have that off my chest......I had dinner with one of my oldest and dearest friends tonight. It was so much fun just catching up and laughing about how dumb and dramatic and, let's face it, psycho we were and still are. It was really refreshing for me to be able to talk to someone in similar life situations as myself and feed off of eachother's ideas and frustrations and joys. Well the point is I love her alot and we've ultimately decided to marry the perfect guys for us and live happily ever after being dumb, dramatic and psycho together. It's just the way it's supposed to be.

If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it...

Studio is my favorite place and my least favorite place at the same time. After suffering through a couple hours of extreme ADD and halfway getting some work done (just so I wouldn't feel bad about how much I've been wasting my time) , I watched a hilarious YouTube video of some of Beyonce's dance moves by a guy in a leotard...and it was probably the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Watch this and you will understand...

Anyway, winter is upon us and I can't help but get excited about snow and scarves and long breaks from school. Winter time just seems to be way more fun to me than any other time of the year....maybe it's just me. 

Well, I'm off to relish in the fact that I am done with studio for at least a week and get to enjoy a few days off from the responsibilities of being a senior in college. I'm not going to know what to do with myself...maybe I'll practice some of my own Beyonce like dance moves.
