what i'm into




So I'm back after a little blog-break. My posts might be kind of sporadic over the next couple of weeks as I try to relax during my summer break and sort out the millions of thoughts in my head.

I would like to thank all of you for your supportive and reassuring comments on my last post regarding my grade freak out....
The day after I posted that, my professor emailed me back and said that my essay must have accidentally been deleted off of the system and said if I submitted it before Friday that he would grade it without taking any points off. Ready for the best news? I checked my grades yesterday and I received A's in both English Comp 2 and US History :) all that freaking out for nothing... at least all my hard work paid off! Thank you again for all your support and listening to me vent... I so so appreciate it!

what i'm listening to... Safetysuit has stolen my heart.





what i'm reading... I just finished reading To Be Sung Underwater by Tom McNeal. It is a beautifully written book about the power of first love and it completely captured me. I read it in a few hours. Now I'm reading The Next Eco-Warriors: 22 Young Women and Men Who Are Saving the Planet by Emily Hunter. It is full of inspiring stories about how people around the world are making a difference. When I'm done with that I'm going to start on The Urban Homesteader by Kelly Coyne & Eric Knutzen.


what i'm craving... peace and quiet. cooler temperatures so I can actually enjoy being outside. a hammock, lazily swaying in a cool breeze, where I can read and nap without a care all day long.


what i'm watching... I've been a little tv obsessed lately, which is abnormal for me. It's just been so easy to stare at the tv, only half watching, and day dream. I've been catching up on all my DVRed shows... So You Think You Can Dance, Big Brother, Criminal Minds, True Blood, Real Time with Bill Maher, Project Runway, House Hunters International, and Design Star.... out of control, huh?

what i'm dreaming about... jeans and sweatshirt weather, an ice cold Tecate with a lime slice, & being on a boat.



what i'm looking forward to... It's birthday month!! On August 11th, I will turn 29. I'm looking forward to seeing what my last year in my twenties has in store for me!

  7. I'm glad that your homework mess was straightened out! ♥ See, there was nothing to worry about... ;)

    All the books sound interesting :) I'm reading "The Hunger Games" right now :) It's pretty good... not quite peaceful or anything ;)

    Haha, wow! That IS a lot of TV!! Mom turned it on last night and we watched 1 show because she had to "do some thinking" and it felt soo weird to watch TV!
    Oo- but I do miss the show "So You Think You Can Dance"!!! :) I loved that one! ♥

    xoxo
