This was basically the worst day of my life.

It all began last night when I didn't go to bed until at least 3am finishing my huge paper. If I could, I'd be in bed by 9:30 every night. Anyways, I was exhausted. The next day was not any better. I had an important meeting that morning at 8 followed by class at 9 (when I had to turn in the paper) then class at 10... blah blah blah.

Well according to Natalie Howard, I was awake at 6:45 and sent her a text to that effect. I, on the other hand, have NO recollection of this. The first thing I remember this morning was looking at my phone and it reading 
I jumped out of bed, brushed my teeth, printed my paper to the Nowlin Center and started RUNNING to class. Walked in late. Wasn't until I sat down and caught my breath that I realized I was in my yoga pants and oversized t-shirt that I had been sleeping in, frizz central hair and glasses on. I think, it's whatever, it's college, I look ridiculous but I can run back to the apartment before chapel and change. THINK AGAIN. 
Moriah Willing texts me during my 10 o'clock to remind me (being the sweet friend that she is) that today is the "chapel scene" from the opera this weekend. KILL ME. 
She was kind enough to run to my closet and grab my outfit to wear. Of course, she grabbed the shortest dress I own, and of course, I get backstage and realize I'M NOT WEARING UNDERWEAR. {to clarify, I normally wear underwear.} There is absolutely no way I can go onstage. One swift move and I'd be expelled from OC for indecent exposure. 
You guessed it. I wore my dress, heels, frizzy hair, no makeup and glasses WITH YOGA PANTS underneath. This all happened before 11:30. 
Unfortunately, my bad day didn't end there, but I'm not going to bore you with the rest. 
It's been a long time, but I'm back and ready for action! (Or just another blog post). If you're wondering why I've jumped back on the blog bandwagon, the credit must go to Summer Lashley. I was minding my own business, trying to get some work done and then it happened. 
And then nothing else productive happened the rest of the day. Do I have a 10+ page paper due end of this week? Yes. Are finals in two weeks? Yes. Do I have a job and laundry to do? Yes. Do I care. Noooooooooo. This blog is hysterical. Stop what you're doing right now and go read it. I'm actually headed out the door for dinner at her place in just a few minutes and I'm stoked about it. Because all I've done the past three days is read her blog and now I feel like I'm about to BE IN HER BLOG BECAUSE I'LL BE IN HER HOUSE WITH HER HYSTERICAL KIDS! (Clearly I am being super stalker weird about Undomesticated Goddess...) 

That being said, to catch you up on my life. I was elected SGA Executive Secretary last week (which is why I'm headed to Summer's) 
I have a boyfriend. I'll repeat that for those of you who just knocked your bottom teeth out from your jaw hitting the floor. Yes, I have a boyfriend. I'll spare you all the details about how wonderful he is. 

My precious little momita got a job with Southwest Airlines and my sister and I are now free to move about the country for ZERO DOLLARS. 

Speaking of my sister, somehow, without warning, she went from a fat, tiny, cute, innocent baby to a tall, slender, BEAUTIFUL 13 year old. (And let me tell ya, she is SO 13.) 
 I have finally made the official-ish leap of living on my own. And by this I mean for the first time in my life I'm not moving back home for the summer but staying in Edmond becauuuuuse I got the Campus Recruiter job for OC! I changed my major. Again. Quick run down on that: Music Major to Biology Major/Music Minor to Family Studies Major/Music Minor to I'm-about-to-drop-the-minor-cause-I'll-be-lucky-if-I-ever-get-a-bachelors Major. 

Some things that I have learned/been reminded of while I've been gone (from blogspot):
1. God is faithful. (I can never chant this enough. It has become my mantra.)
2. You have to work hard to get what you want. And if it's truly something you want then you won't have any trouble working your ass off to get it. (I don't particularly like to cuss on blogger but I couldn't put it any other way.) 
3. God's plan is always best but isn't always the easiest. (This one was reeeeeally hard to get.) 
4. God wants me. (So beautiful) 
5. God is STILL faithful. 

Be blessed this week. Cherish those around you. Tell the people you love that you love them and why. I have found that it's always a nice reminder. I now have to go because I can feel Dr. Newell standing behind me watching me write a blog post and not his abnormal paper. (screw you, Ryan Newell.)
