Why is it when I move to a different country all these boys come out of the wood work to tell me “I’m the perfect girl for them”..?
NEWSFLASH FELLAS….I AM IN LONDON… not in America… so you’re a tad to late for me to be perfect for you. Why did you not have this revelation months ago… or even years ago? Oh wait, I know why.. its because you were to busy dating girls you would just date, rather than dating girls you could take home to your family, and/or potentially marry.
However, luckily for you guys, I am a nice person. I don’y hold it against you that you’re a bit dumb…and apparently WAY to late for us to be anything more than friends… but at least you tried? I mean I am now at the stage of my life where I am not looking for a relationship. Marriage is not even on my list right now. So my advice for you now is next time you meet a girl and think she could be potential for a long relationship that could lead to much more than just…well, ya know. I suggest going for it, rather than waiting. Because you wait to long, her Prince Charming could come…then you miss out.
That is all the advice I have for you boys… oh…and please. If you now decide that you think I am perfect and blah blah blah…keep that to yourself. I enjoy the flattery, but come on.. seriously… ya get the point. XX

Ever wonder how your experience effect who you are? I do constantly. I wonder what would happen if I never had the experiences that I claim shaped the person I am today. I am who I am. I don’t care if people choose to like me or not. I am…me. I never understood why some people have tried to make me something I am not. I am the girl you see and never notice… until I laugh. My smile (I have heard) lights up a room. If you want someone to talk to…I am the one who will listen. I tend to think of others before myself. I am the girl who gives you the benefit of the doubt before judging your character. I try to see the best in people, even if that is hard for most to find. I am ME. If you can’t handle it… don’t try to fix the details you don’t like…don’t take advantage…. just accept me for myself.
Know that I am the girl who could listen to Disney music all day, every day. I am the girl who is usually thought of as loud…and I am. I have the worst luck known to mankind. I love pink. I love shiney/sparkling things. Sometimes I just want to dance. I am myself in every situation.
Love me or hate me. I don’t really care, as long as you don’t try t change me… now that I am done ranting.. I feel better. kthanks :p

You ever have those nights when you just sit and wonder how you got to the place you are now? Well, I was having one of those nights last night. If you would have asked me 3 years ago where I would be in 2011…I would have never told you London, that is a fact. I would have never told you I would not be diving. No one would have believed that anyways… most people still don’t.
With all my pondering, I began to also reflect on past relationships, good and bad. Something was once so good…how did it turn so bad so fast? Or the people I would expect to support me are actually doing the opposite… can anyone really be counted on now-a-days?
Whilst being in my slump last night, I had a nice heart to heart with one of my newly found friends here. Who gave me a piece of advice that inspired this thought for the day… that friend told me, “you’re here now, so enjoy being here, be here in mind as well as spirit, and let what’s done go, cuz it aint coming back. and that’s ok”
That is totally and completely true, and after thinking about it the rest of the night… I could not help but feel more relieved knowing that that statement is true. What happened this summer… what happened last year… it’s all in the past. No point dwelling on things I can NOT fix. Time to pep up and live for today. Needless to say, my mood drastically improved. I mean… I AM in London anyways.

We have managed to have a terrible day when it comes to technology. It took us FOREVER to burn our radio interviews onto CDs. We were almost a hour later getting class started because no one could get anything to work. Computer’s audio would not work. Adobe Audition would not open. Weird things kept popping up on the screen. Computer’s crashing and restarting themselves….and now… Burli won’t upload our radio interviews.
Today is off to a great start forsure. Good thing we are being productive post grads… insterad of finding someone to help us with these problems…guess what we’re doing?!
ROLLY CHAIR RACES, SINGING AND FACEBOOK STALKING. yup. being a postgrad is pretty awesome. How do you like us now! haha please, be jealous of our lives :p

Watching Tangled last night got me thinking… is there really such a thing as happily ever after? I mean girls grow up watching these Disney movies that tell us Prince Charming is out there…and he will sweep you off your feet…but does that ever really happen? I mean I am sure there is a “Mr Right” somewhere out there, but to think we will live a perfect life…forever and ever…is that just me having my head in the clouds?
Watching these feel good movies about love, do they really make us feel good? If anything I think they just make us feel worse about NOT having that fairytale romance. I mean, how much more in your face “HA! YOU WISH YOU HAD THIS” can these movies be?
Dont get me wrong… I love these fairytale movies… and Tangled will forever be one of my favourites. So I will always hope and dream for my prince charming. In the words of Snow White..”Im wishing…for the one I love…to find me…today”

What makes someone clumsy? I only ask this because I do not think I could go a full day without tripping over air…even though I know that the side walk jumped out at me! Which for some reason no one ever believes me. I mean seriously, did I miss out on that part of life called “learning to walk” or did I from the beginning have issues with picking up my feet..?
Last night, in the span of only a couple hours, I managed to eat the concrete twice. Literally eat it. Hands and knees on the ground. I am surprised I did not hit my face…I mean I am sure the concrete was feeling a bit lonely and THAT is why it moved the step down on me. It just wanted a kiss from the silly blonde that looked like Jazzercise Barbie. No offense to the concrete, but I happen to like my teeth. My parents spent a lot of money making sure my teeth were straight and white.
Although no kisses were given, the concrete still managed to take some skin from my knee and my hands. But I guess all is fair in love and war? Or I guess in this case it would be
All is fair in love and clumsiness

You know Halloween is not big somewhere when you must travel by almost every form of transportation to get to a costume shop (or as they say in the UK…A fancy dress shop). Today, the American’s are setting out on an adventure to find Halloween costumes to wear at the Mask-erade that we are throwing for some of our friends…got to show them how us Americans do it
We are also venturing to go to the American Store…aka they have every food item any fat American could want…Example: POPTARTS! Who doesn’t love poptarts? I mean seriously. May need to even purchase some candy corn for the fancy dress party were throwing…you know, we have to go all out for our friends. Show them how we celebrate Halloween America style.
Plus I have the perfect costume….to be continued

Fire alarms are of course a great thing. If there is a fire… you can escape from the building before flames eat you. However, I am not a fan of the residence halls testing fire alarms at 11 a.m. on a Friday morning. Last Friday I was sleeping soundly (on my one week day with no class, so i can sleep in) and I had to jump out of bed, put clothes on, and half asleep walk outside.
Today was a different story… I was showering when the alarm went off. Great right? Having to walk outside in a towel. cute. Luckily before I got out of my hall the alarm stopped, leaving me with a little more pride than I thought I would have after this experience.
This is my cry out to the residence hall staff…can we move the testing time to a little bit later? This 11 a.m. thing is already annoying and its only been the second week.
Girl who likes to not go outside in a towel with shampoo still in her hair.

You tube. Such a great source of social networking…although sometimes it is a bit on the crazy side. Like the silly videos we watch over and over for absolutely no reason..except for pure comic relief in our ever so hectic lives. The amount of time we sit there, watching these videos is insane. No wonder people enjoy being ‘couch potatoes’. We like sitting there….with laptops in hand…watching stupid videos about cute kittens that do ADORABLE things. Or angry gingers claiming how they have souls…all because a TV show said they don’t. Youtube is ridiculous…yet how can you not love it? I think I will not pay attention in class and go learn all the words to a rap song

Let us talk about boys. Boys claim they are simple…but is that really the case? I don’t think so. You never can tell what they are thinking or feeling. Boys, no matter the age, can just look at you…and you have no idea whether they are thinking you’re pretty…or there is a booger in your nose, or maybe they are just staring aimlessly because they have nothing better to do. Seriously! If boys were so simple… I mean there are the known facts. Boys like specific female body parts…I mean that is mostly what they think of when they’re talking to you (even if they don’t admit it). Example: You are with a group of friends at dinner. All of the boys in the group see the T.V. is on. When will they stop listening to the conversation? When either
A) The football game is on
or B) Katy Perry is struting her stuff on the screen in nothing but a cupcake bra and short shorts.
Okay, so maybe boys are a little bit on the simple side…but they never seem to be simple when it comes to the crushes girls have on them. That is all that is going on in our girl brains. We over analyse a boy’s attention towards us, yes I know…but girls can tell when there is flirting happening back. Is it the “want what you can’t have” syndrome? I mean seriously…how much more confusing can you be?
I love boys. I have plenty of friends who are boys… however I will never side with the “boys are simple” concept. Boys are silly creatures who we can’t live with….but we even more so CAN NOT live without. Plus…some are just soooo fine. How can you be mad at them for very long?
