"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done."

ONLY 7 MORE DAYS OF CLASS PEOPLE
IT'S TIME TO HIT THE BOOKS.
BRACE YOURSELF, IT WON'T BE EASY.
BUT WHEN YOU FINISH THIS YOU HAVE A WHOLE MONTH AHEAD OF YOU.
Lets just be real, I can get in a bad mood pretty easily. I took a personality test a couple days ago and it told me I was drawn to sadness and self sabotage. Ummm let's hope that's not true!
But anyway here are just a few things that (without fail ) can get me out of a bad mood.
1. Riding in the car with your music cranked up super loud and beautiful weather can fix a lot (as long as I'm not tense from scary traffic)
When I was on my way home for Thanksgiving I was seriously having such a good time just being by myself, driving through the beautiful mountains and then passing the sun shining off of Lake Norman with a good playlist on my iPod. I had some country music going, some backstreet boys, rapped a little bit, belted out some ballads and it didn't matter because I was all alone didn't have a care in the world. I really needed that drive home just to get a break for a couple hours.
2. Starbucks. Oh, coffee.
3. It's also such a good feeling to see old friends. Even after a long time apart you can still have awesome conversations and you still have stuff in common and lots to talk about. It's just a nice feeling to have people that even if you don't see them for a while you can still talk as if you see them all the time.
4. Family is better than anything. I loved seeing my grandparents and giving them big hugs and my sweet little cousins. Just goofing around, playing card games, decorating the tree, it's so relaxing and you just get to be yourself around your family. My Dad went and got us the new kinect xbox dance game and I like cried laughing watching my Mom and Dad dance. It was hilarious.
all I'm saying is
don't let a bad mood ruin your day!
Find a way to get out of it.
Good music, good coffee or good people - sometimes that's all you need!
So I got to go to the inauguration with Lindy and a bunch of my friends almost two years ago (WOW) and watching this video never gets old! This will seriously be one of the coolest things I've ever done in my life and the video is pretty awesome.
I don't know if the link will work unless you're friends with Lindy on facebook but
So kids, today I had a meeting with the head of the Graphic Design department and he threw the punch that helped officially shatter my dream of being a graphic designer.
Long story short he used a lot of curse words, told me to "be the goat", asked me to imagine having a rich uncle James who died and gave me his fortune, decided I should be a magazine editor and then when I left the room he told me to call him when I'm rich and famous.
It was bizarre.
But in the end he helped me realize that graphic design wasn't actually my dream...
Writing is! I love writing, spend my free time doing it and am really relieved to be dead set on my major. YAY!!!
So on that note, I'm kind of beyond excited about my schedule for next semester.
POETRY WRITING CLASS - awesomely amazing - it won't even feel like work
WHAT IF HARRY POTTER WAS REAL - Need I say more? I'm crossing my fingers we will get sorted! AH that would be WICKED.
BIO - I hate science but the rate my professor site says he's a great teacher and there's no attendance policy - aka perfection.
2 COMM classes - Comm Ethics and Mass Comm, they probably won't be the most fun classes ever but at least finally getting into my major!
I love seeing funny movies. The hangover, best of Will Ferrell, I love it all. I kind of have a perverted sense of humor. I even like family guy. Seriously, laughing is one of my favorite things to do. I laugh a lot like to the point where my eyes start to water uncontrollably.
Random fact - in middle school I used to get in trouble for laughing because I would have random fits of laughter that I seriously could not control. They took over and they've started to come back! AH!
I love taking a baths. I put on some John Mayer or Michael Buble and just sit there..ahh, yes.
Random fact - getting out of the bath and stepping onto the cold tile is one of my least favorite things to do. BRRR! I wish I could get picked up, wrapped like an enchilada like when I was little.
I love brand new little puppies and their bellies. I don't know why but they're so cute and I love how soft they are like Rocky was when I got him for Christmas.
Random fact - I pretty much begged for a dog my sophomore year Christmas. My parents COMPLETELY surprised me and carried him down wrapped up in this Santa hat.
I love that feeling when you wake up on a day when you know you can sleep in so you stretch, sigh, cuddle back up and casually decide to go back to sleep.
Random fact - My ears have to be covered when I'm going to sleep or else I can't fall asleep.
I love that victory "yeah, I'm awesome" feeling when you score in a sport. I'm not the most athletic person ever but there is nothing like that feeling when you make a basket, get a run, or add anything to the score for that matter.
Random fact - I'm left handed but I bat and catch with my right hand in softball
I love looking cute. If I dress cute it puts me in a better mood because I feel more confident.
Random fact - I wear black A LOT because I have hyperhydrosis
(aka I sweat WAY more than anyone should).
It grosses a lot of people out but I'm I can't help it and I'm used to it by now so if it creeps you out then don't hang out with me k? cool :)
I actually love to cry. It relieves stress, makes me sleep better, makes me relax and sometimes you just need to do it.
Random fact - for a girl, I don't cry very easily. I don't know why I guess it's because I'm not very sympathetic (which sounds bad but its the truth). If I see someone crying that I care for though, that'll probably make me cry.
I love rap music. I like to memorize the words because I'm a dork that way I can rap along with the song.
Random fact - people call me white chocolate.
I love group dances. YMCA, Cha cha slide, cupid shuffle, electric slide, line dances or all dancing along to Party in the USA. There's nothing like an entire group of people acting like a bunch of morons doing really easy dance moves. SO much fun.
Random fact - I have hidden dance skillz. You're lucky if you've ever seen my moves.
(this is everyone dancing at Ashley and John's wedding)
