Back in da CLT
After a quality weekend in with boyfriend. It was the best Memorial Day weekend ever and I even got to stay an extra day. Back in the Annie-Cave now with a few more seasons of The Office, class registering, and itching for my paycheck tomorrow. I survived the weekend with a slim $25 in my bank account after gas, and mommy even had to help out a bit on the way home after food… oops. ...
I'M GOING TO SEE BOYFRIEND TOMORROW!
I haven’t seen him in 3 weeks, and I’m so excited.

I was a big girl and got McDonalds with my best friend who sucks and dated my ex for almost a year and still isn’t over him even after he hit her… We had a great time and it reminded me that sometimes you just have to get over it. People suck. Some people just cant help that they’re a back stabbing bitch over and over again, and I just have to learn to accept nothing more than...
I miss boyfriend a lot. Is it Friday yet?
Until I’m out of Charlotte. It is no secret that I hate being home, so I’ve decided to do something productive to stop being mean and relieve stress: running. You all should know I hate exercise. HATE. Burning, loathsome, hatred toward anything physical with the purpose of ‘getting in shape’. This should put into perspective how much I need to get out of here. Tomorrow,...
Funny things that people do:
“Quote themselves. So, your thought was so brilliant, more brilliant than any of the other things you’ve been writing, that you decided to put it in quotes and sign your name, or, the more glamorous, ‘-me’.” -Me, the vain, brilliant philosophical thinker that quotes myself. I get this is a blogging site, and don’t get me wrong, I’m all about...
One step closer to straight A's
All that stands in my way is one senile professor who forgets his own attendance policy, and a raging hormonal pregnant professor who can’t keep her own stifling opinions out of class participation grading, as well as her Public Policy class. Get your act together, NC State Political Science Department.
Today I deposited my tax return and my first paycheck. Tomorrow I will be using it to spend a day not at my house. Summer Fun Update: I haven’t seen boyfriend in a week and a half and I don’t know when I’ll get to see him again. Wuddup, retail therapy? My Charlotte friends suck. My time spent in high school was full of poor decisions influenced by a terrible ex who is currently...

I GOT A B+ IN POLITICAL THEORY.
What the hell? I’m being punk’d. That’s not real.
8 crazy things I did in college that helped my...
As mentioned a few days ago, today is switch day for Blogathon 2011. I switched with Michelle Rafter (my mom’s college roommate) and wrote a post on her blog about how awesome and easy it is to use Tumblr. You can check it out here. Here’s her post on advice for us collegians in balancing a collegiate life with getting involved and writing for a school newspaper: Michelle V....
I just spent $16 on nail polish.
TSM… sorry I’m not sorry.
The hold on my Netflix account is officially lifted. Cheers to a summer spent at home in my room in the dark watching The Office and going to work to spend money on a fabulous wardrobe I won’t get to wear until August. Livin’ it up, you guys.
Guess what you guys!
I’m famous!! Since I’ve been home, I’ve been working tirelessly on a grown-up guest blog post on Tumblr and why it’s awesome. It’ll be featured on Blogathon (as explained here) on my mom’s college roommate’s big fancy professional grown-up blog. I’m so excited- especially since my big decision to embrace journalism as my calling and now people can...
Nicely tell my professor that she’s a raging, hormonal, pregnant bitch for giving me an 82 for class participation, and thus a B+ instead of the A- or A I deserve?
I GOT WORK STUDY!!
That means I get to work at the UNC art museum and get money. AHHHH AHHHHHHHHH AHHH AHHHHH State didn’t give me jack shit. This is UNC’s way of saying ‘Sorry we fucked you last year. Here’s some cash monayy and a cool job to put on a resume. Love ya, mean it!’ My parents are going to be so pumped. I can’t wait to tell them
My dad peeling my mom and I oranges while sitting on the couch with a Blue Moon watching bad TV, and then going up to my room to tumbl, facebook, and read whatever I damn well please. I love summer. I do miss boyfriend though… 3 hours is a long way.
I'M DONE I'M DONE I'M DONE
After 3 torturous weeks of paper after paper after quiz after another paper after more quizzes after another paper after final after final after final after Political Theory Exam of Darkness and Gloom and Broken Fingers…. I’M DONE! And I think I kicked ass this semester. Suck my balls, NC State. You will not defeat me! Just kidding, it’s been real. I’ll miss you,...

kelsey85: today: newsweek: This is a very important question to a certain generation of women, obvs. (via) ”…Every girl wanted a Samantha. If you owned her, you quickly learned the value of cachet.” I had Felicity. Both B and C were true for me. I also liked her books the best, mainly because she had a horse. I had a Molly, was a Molly, and was forever pissed that I got the ugly...
I wait to go home. No sun, sleep, or games to play. Summer waits for me. Am I doing it right? I’ve never written one of these before. It’s Haiku day for Blogathon so I have to, and this is my cry for help.
is worldwide trending on twitter. #winning.
Fleetwood Mac & Glee
I think Glee reads my mind. I’ve been feeling a Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks phase coming on, and there it was, a whole episode on Rumours. Stevie Nicks was the first concert I ever went to. I was 13 I think. She was so coked out and wore her signature capes and shawl things and it felt so 70’s and there were a bunch of old, drunk people jammn out. It’s kind of sad that our...
3 days has never felt so far away. It’s almost painful: Sunday: STUDYSTUDYSTUDYFOREVER Monday: Public Policy exam (online 8am-8pm), study my brains out for anthropology, start packing to go home Tuesday: Cultural Anthropology exam (8am-9am), study my brains out all day/night for Political Theory and cry forever because of haw badly I expect to fail Wednesday: POLITICAL THEORY EXAM...
Just my friend from home, Alyse, talking to Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl… Not only is she gorgeous and living a real-live Gossip Girl life in New York City right now, she’s probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. So excited for her to come home in a few weeks!
I made a list of these at the end of last semester for this one, and I feel like I did an exceptionally good job in sticking to them. Even though I still escaped to Chapel Hill almost every weekend, I made an effort to make friends here and immerse myself more in Delta Gamma, and even a little into Sorority life- almost enough to make me want to stay at State. I made a lot of friends and had a lot...
I’m leaving Chapel Hill today to go back to Ralz, finish my last 3 exams, and then back to Charlotte for the summer. Boyfriend will be staying at UNC, so we’ll have to figure out living 3 hours apart for 12 weeks or so until I’m back at UNC, hopefully for good, or at least until I graduate. $60 in gas is a lot just to spend a day or two with someone every two weeks- I’m...
fifthavenuefiveam asked: You and I are hanging out this summer, alright? I work every weekday starting next Monday. But still, we're hanging out this summer.
I have nothing exciting to blog about. I’m only blogging out of obligation of Blogathon… Last night I went to Chapel Hill and spent the day here with boyfriend driving and adventuring around. It’s my last day here for a while- leaving tomorrow to go back to Raleigh, and then back to Chahhhhlotte to slave. Boyfriend did get me a treat though: I pick winners. I’ll miss...
Why would you ever go in to take a final and not bring a writing utensil? Seriously? Is this really happening right now? Yes. I’d say at probably every final/exam/quiz/ whatever, someone asks me, or I over here someone asking someone else for a pen or pencil, and I’m a bitch for rolling my eyes at you. Is there something wrong with you? If you remembered you had a final to go to,...
I think I would be the happiest girl on the planet...
I hate finals.
My Top 5 favorite books on...
Today is Theme Day on Blogathon ‘11: “My Top 5 Favorite Books on __________” Because this blog is about learning how to pretend to be a grown up, naturally I’m picking my favorite books on Growing Up (and whatever other books I deem necessary to include): #5. East of Eden, by John Steinbeck: I was forced to read this my junior year of high school, and despite the late...
When it’s cool in May like this in North Carolina-it’s called Blackberry Winter.
I hate facebook. I’m tired of seeing my psychopath ex and my best friend unfriend (who insists they’re not together, nor are they ever getting back together) plastered all over my wall. He only hit her, lived in her dorm for 8 months, ate all of her meals off of her meal plan, and sold drugs, among other things- not to mention the bullshit he put me through. Over it. Officially...
