Seven Things

Hello blogettes!  So today marked the beginning of my second semester of graduate school.  I had two classes this evening and I am utterly flabbergasted at the amount of work they gave me for the semester!  I am taking 5 courses (16 credits), two mornings a week at an internship, and working 25 hours a week at my job (gotta have the $$).  I honestly am scared to see the amount of work for the other three courses, and I have no idea how I’m going to balance everything.  I’ve had a lot of work and semesters in my time, yet I feel like this is the most work I’ve had yet.  Oy.  Keep me in your thoughts and send me some motivation…I have some, but seems like I’ll need an abundance!

The lovely Kara,  a great friend both in the blog world and off (girl we need to meet! 🙂 ) tagged me in the Seven Things post that has been circulating the blog world.  I’m flattered to be tagged, so here are some random facts you may not know about me!

1. I have a lame obsession with some guilty pleasure TV shows…America’s Next Top Model, Secret Life of the American Teenager, What Not to Wear, Say Yes to the Dress, Bridezillas, and….Jersey Shore, of course 😉

2. When I was in elementary school I contracted Lyme Disease, but have not had any issues with it since then

3. My best friend of seven years is also my semi step sister!  Our parents live together! Cool, huh?

4. Above mentioned best friend just got engaged and I’m the maid of honor 🙂  My first time in a wedding and I’m SO EXCITED!

5. I have a couple of food aversions….celery, regular or spicy mustard, grapefruits, and olives are some food I will. not. touch. Yuck

6. I haven’t been single for more than 3 months since I was 16.  Now is one of those times. 😛

7. I LOVE to write, and have notebooks filled with short stories I’ve written.  Too bad I don’t have much time to write for fun anymore 😦

Hope this gives you all some insight into my wonderful life haha.  Let’s see…consider yourselves all tagged but here are some special ladies I’d like to call out:


Miss GC



Ms. Page



You ladies all rock!  But, and I truly mean this, you all are fabulous, wonderful women (or men if that be the case!) and I truly extend this to all of you!  All the blogs I have the pleasure of reading are wonderful, so consider this a giant hug for you all!

Have a wonderful night!

    I’m sure you’ll do GREAT this semester! It always takes a little getting used to for such a big work load.

    How neat about your friend being your semi step sister! Sounds like a movie. 😉

    Hey Girlie Girl!! I miss you…I have a lil something to send ya! (so send me your new mailing address when you can!) All the foods you wont touch are DELISH in my book…hehehe! I’m right there with you on the single thing…right when I break-up with a guy, there’s always one who comes in…I was actually thinking about this last night! I think it’s important to have times in your life when you are single…then you get to learn who you are without a man to pick u up/pull u down…you’re a gorgeous chica, so I’m sure there’s a guy around the corner for u!…the only question is whether he’s Mr. Right, or Mr. Right-now…I have troubles with this one and seem to always go for Mr. Right-now. OK WOW sorry to ramble!! I hope you’re having a great week!! xoxo!
