on my mind:

I wanted to have a post that was cohesive and put together well, but I feel there's too much on my mind to do that. I haven't blogged in ages and I need to get back into the swing of things. So, here's a bit of an update...

On school: I'm officially a junior. That is actually really weird to say considering I feel like it was just yesterday when I was in high school calling myself a junior. I finished out last quarter really well...I'd say my best yet :) I'm excited because now I am done with my general undergraduate requirements and I get to take classes I'm actually interested in! This should be a good one...but I'm already yearning for summer!
Speaking of summer: Kelsey and I have officially decided to live in James' room for the summer. Basically means cheap rent and a little bit of cramming for 3 months, but it's so worth it! I've been searching (kind of) for jobs. I'm hoping to get a job in a restaurant. I don't know how I'd go without tips for an entire hopefully that all works out. I went in and dropped off a resume at a restaurant that's close to campus and the manager seemed pretty impressed so I'm hoping that's a good sign. I'm going to apply to a bunch more restaurants in the meantime though! :) I'm mainly just excited to be living in Seattle for the summer. I love this city and everything it has to offer, and I love the U-District too. It's lively, fun and there is so much to do! I may even be getting a visit from a long-lost friend who lives in Kansas which would be fun, fun, fun!!!
On Spring Break adventures: The vacation with Dad went surprisingly well. We had a lot of fun, no arguments, and some temperamental weather (snow in the Grand Canyon & Sedona, then 85 degree weather in Phoenix). I've never listened to so much country music in my life, but I'm okay with it. Overall it was a good time, and I think it was a good thing for our ailing relationship as well.
On apartment hunting: The search is over! :) Kelsey, Amy and I put down a deposit on an apartment yesterday and we move in early September! Absolutely cannot wait! It's going to be amazingggg! I love my girls, and the place we got is nice and close. It's familiar to me because Mitchell & Gregger live there and I've spent quite a bit of time there this year. We're all excited to have it out of the signing tomorrow! :)
On friends: Well they always say there are ups and downs to any relationship. I'd say a few of my relationships are in the "down" parts right now. It's frustrating because I invest a lot of myself into people and it's hard to not have that reciprocated. But, as everything is, it's a learning experience and I am confident these struggles are only going to make me stronger in the future. I wish I had a few more answers, but I also realize this is probably not going to happen. Just gotta go with the flow and hope things end up alright in the end! The ones that matter most will be there no matter what. To quote Bruno Mars (whom I actually despise, fyi): "You can count on me like 1 2 3, I'll be there. And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2, and you'll be there. Cause that's what friends are supposed to do!"  I'm lucky and blessed to have many people in my life like this - people I can count on no matter what. Whether they're there to provide a shoulder to cry on, hand me the bottle of Kraken or text me a sweet's appreciated. So, to those who are one of my few, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
On cheating: It's unacceptable, and that's that. But people make mistakes...and if mistakes are made, please be the bigger person and OWN UP to them. The consequences may be difficult to deal with, but the weight of the guilt would be bigger. My thought is that if you are willing to cheat on your significant other, that should be enough evidence that something in your relationship is either missing or in need of fixing. It makes me sick to see people I truly care about handling tough situations in a less-than-desirable fashion, and I hope that eventually they come around and realize what is best!
On random shit: I need a haircut. I'm obsessed with Adele and The Dean's List. I just ate delicious butternut squash soup. I miss my best friends Nick & Chanel. I can't wait to go to Weezy with Kels in less than a month! I am crossing my fingers and praying that the DMB Caravan comes to The Gorge...I will cry of sheer joy if they do. I wanna go snowboarding really badly. I love that I'm finally strong enough to move on and be happy with my decisions. I can't believe there are only 9 weeks until summer! :)

Wellp, that's all for now!! Maybe I'll be better about updating now!
As always, peace and love <3

Love & Basketball

As March Madness comes to a close, I get really sad. First off - I can't spend hours upon hours watching games and cheering for my bracket. Second off - I don't get to see Brandon Knight as frequently! So terrible.
I would move to Kentucky in a heartbeat if I could...hahahah :)


I forgot how awesome this movie was, until I watched it last night. It's really just a classic.

"They should name a gender after you. Looking at you doesn't do it. Staring is the only way that makes any sense. And trying not to blink, so you don't miss anything. And all of that, and you're YOU. I mean...look, forgive me. It's just you are DROP DEAD, CRAZY GORGEOUS! So much so that I'm actually considering looking at you again before we finish up here."
