remember when...

I used to blog? and used to do social things? and used to do things other than study in the library?

yeah. those were the days.

here, I'll show you a few nice little tweets from the other night:

oh... how fun were the nights that I didn't do homework until midnight?? No. ok, sorry I'm complaining... it's really not that bad. I'm enjoying most of my classes, but there was a problem with my mind when I was registering for them. My sister gave me some great advice- take 2 hard classes, 2 moderate classes, and 2 easy classes. That's what I thought I was doing, but instead I got myself into 2 hard classes, 3 classes that require a ton of reading and memorizing and there are quizzes so you actually have to know that material, and one class that requires doing a very long excel project every week. So that's fun.

Ok... done with my complaining because it's really not as bad as I'm making it sound! kinda.

My disclaimer for this post is that it'll be really random for various reasons. The first of which is the fact that I have a cold and therefore just took Niquil. so, that makes me a little crazy. but that's all good.

first off, last weekend I got to go back to Colorado and show Cady around! I would love to blog all about it, but frankly I don't really feel like it. So here's a picture and a link to Cady's blog to read all about our adventures! GO READ IT (: It was an awesome weekend! I missed seeing the stars so much. sooo much.

I'm currently in love with this quote. Don't ask me why.

Dear future husband, let's be adventurers. Let's take long hikes and run half marathons {that's a new goal, by the way} and listen to lots of music {but not country music} and laugh a lot and enjoy everything that this world has to offer.

kay, yeah. this is what I get for blogging under the influence of cold medicine at 1 a.m.

I've realized that I truly love quotes. {if you can't tell by my pinterest right here}

The past couple of weeks I've been going to the BYU gym... and I've sorta fallen in love with running. So there's that.

Also, I've been listening to lots of music. Because I love music. While I'm doing homework I listen to white noise {literally static}, so I have to reward myself by listening to regular music between my different homework tasks. It's a very productive method. Overall, not to brag or anything, but I'd say that I am a pretty good homework-doer.

I wrote a sociology paper based off of this Components of Class graphic. I realized just how blessed I am in my life. I really encourage you to look at it!

I have become the worst texter known to mankind. Exhibit A would be the fact that my total texting count for last month was around 600. For a teenager who used to send thousands of texts, this is saying something. So if you text me, I'm really sorry if I don't continue the conversation. I've become a hater of texting just for the heck of it.

I'm doing intramural tennis with a kid in my ward. Our first match was last night and we have another tomorrow! Oh, how I missed playing tennis.

Cady, Kayla, and I are working on meeting new people. Today I met a kid from the town in Alabama that Zach is currently serving in... how weird, right?!

My Econ class is my favorite. Is that normal?

Sometimes I forget that social media sites besides Twitter exist. Thanks Kayla for getting me hooked on tweeting! I'm also pretty sure that I could do nothing other than quote Cady, Kayla, and my geography teacher. No doubt.

Oh, the mission calls are flooding in! There were several kids from my ward who got calls this week, and there are tons more to come in the next couple weeks!

Guys, I'm moving to LONDON. I still haven't grasped that yet.

And speaking of London, I'm poor and trying to find a good summer job is stressful.

Downton Abbey is  k i l l i n g  me.

I got my Wall Street Journal subscription today. thank you student discount. {first off, I had to for Econ, but second off, I've been reading it via the day old papers at the cannon and I already feel way more informed. which is great.}

I miss the stars so much. Walking home at night is getting to me. There are no stars here {and that's my only complaint about BYU so I suppose I can live.}

Sometimes I really have the urge to buy myself a bouquet of flowers {but not roses. because roses are awful.} There's a completely random fact about me for the day.

I really want to redesign my blog. but alas, I don't have the time, nor do I have the motivation. So I'll have to live with it until this summer.

I used to love my middle name, so I used it in everything I did. Now I'm kinda regretting it. But it's whatever.

This was THE MOST random blog post, and I'm about to fall asleep at the computer. Sorry about that folks. Good night!

  1. Oh my goodness, I loved this post :)

  2. This is probably my favorite thing you've posted in a while. Nyquil is good for your creativity ;) Love you girl!

  3. I'm so jealous you are moving to London! We want to vacation there next year. Downton Abbey is killing me too!! Also, what is a mission call?

    1. I'm quite excited about london (: Downton Abbey is driving me mad!! And in my church boys who are 18 or older go on a 24 months mission {lot's of girls go too, though it's only for 18 months} A mission call is where they are called to serve... so basically a letter telling them where they're going and what language! So far, I've had some really close friends be called to Jamaica, Russia, brazil... just a ton of really cool places!

  4. Hi I LOVE you and your blog! So I tagged you in this fun little questionnaire. Check out my last post :)

  5. I just stumbled upon your cute blog via miss Alexis's tagg ^^^ I was tagged as well. hooray for blog friends.
    p.s. i'm at byu as well! go cougars!

  6. There's random boring and random amazing and this post definitely falls into the latter category. I can totally sympathize with you on the show. As for the cold, I hope you're doing mighty fine now that it's in the middles of spring. Stay healthy, Erica!
