Update: Insanity is awful and I find myself cursing Shaun T on a daily basis. However, I did get a positive response from Roy while trying on bathing suits when he said “Wow, look at your stomach!” Positive reinforcement is the best motivator. So I’m powering through with my man, Shaun and his insane workout. Looking forward to the final results.
I’m starting Insanity tonight. I’m terrified.
Impressed with iMedia projects
I haven’t blogged in a while and I feel guilty about it. Day to day I just feel like I don’t have anything overly interesting to share or say. However, I decided I need to be more self-assured and maybe part of that is writing more. It’s not like anyone really reads this stuff anyway, so why not just let it all out. So, anyway— even though I’ve been out of school for 8 months now, I still...
You come to a point in life where you stop asking Santa or mom and dad or your boyfriend or whoever, for things you want for Christmas, and start asking for things you need. Maybe not everyone goes through this. But at 23, and on an intern’s salary, there are a lot of things I go without. One of the most annoying things I have to live without is a washing machine. If it wasn’t for Roy letting me...
Why I Care
This week has been exciting for so many reasons. My baby nephew was born on Oct. 26. A healthy, 8.2 lb. little snuggler. Homecoming is this weekend and with it comes an influx of my college friends! The Scotland/Richmond game I’ve tried to explain to my friends, people at work and even my boyfriend why I care about a stupid high school football game. I am sure it’s a little silly but I...
Matt on turning 24 and achieving life goals.
Me: what are you doing for your bday?
Matt Smith: working lol
Me: gosh i can't believe you are going to be 24
Matt Smith: I'm almost a quarter century old
Me: I've known you since you were 11. We are grownups. Damn

Smorgasbord: what's your favorite memory? →
My friend Kallie has already reblogged this but I got choked up watching the video at work today. It made me start thinking of some of my own favorite memories. I’d love to know what Emily and Kallie’s are. Here are some of the ones that came to mind right away and made me smile on this Friday afternoon. 1. The day I adopted Ozzie and every single snuggle he’s given me since...
Harsh Article in DTH
Also, this is really harsh. And exactly why UNC fans have a bad reputation in this state. http://www.dailytarheel.com/index.php/article/2011/09/ready_to_get_embarrassed ECU fans have been all up in the comments section and they seem to be really offended. I don’t even understand how this got printed? He’s not a bad writer but seems to be a bad journalist. Also, I find it really...
Me: Work is good. They've got me up here doing some graphic design work
Matt Smith: finally

Matt Smith: lol You'll "excel"
Me: hahahaha Oh, you are so punny!

The One... (Mad Men)
Roger: You wanna know if it was a great time? It was. You wanna know if you broke my heart. Obviously.
Anabel: Well, it was a mistake.
Roger: It's nice to hear, but it doesn't matter anymore.
Anabel: It does to me. When I was burying this man, all I thought was, I'dve rather had my heart broken every day by you. You were the one.
Roger: You weren't.

Happy Anniversary Ozzie!
Originally posted: June 19, 2011 Anyone who meets me probably finds out that I have a dog within the first 30 seconds of our conversation. I talk about my dog the way other people talk about their children. No, I’m not comparing the love I have for my dog to the love you or anyone else has for their child, but having sole responsibility for another life has a profound effect on a person. I...
