pinspiration to get me through!

Well I am struggling. seriously struggling. it's getting down to the nitty-gritty. While Graduation is 24 days away, my thesis is due in 7 days! And I am nowhere near being done. I have this tendency to block myself up when it comes to really big things and well my thesis is a HUGE thing. So I have some pinspiration that i found that will hopefully help me get through this next week. 

I know God knows I can get through this thesis and it is an obstacle that he wants me to overcome

it's national princess week! so there is something redeeming about this week!

My dad always tells me Carpe Diem. And I need to step it up and take it up to another level this week!

I don't know how much sleep I will be getting over the next 7 days but I definitely need to move mountains when I am awake

Every now and then i get super stressed out about something but I always get it done. The stress I am feeling now rivals any in the past but I have to believe it will get DONE.

Fifty Shades of Grey

I just finished the fifty shades of grey trilogy and let me tell you it surpassed my expectations. I had heard all the buzz about how fabulous the book was and it was getting all kinds of notice in the media, but i was a little skeptical because the author apparently originally wrote it as twilight fan-fiction. Well it has nothing to do with twilight and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I finished the third book last night and I miss the characters of Christian and Ana already.

I read all three books online for free, i just googled "read fifty shades online for free" and had to do a survey to download the pdf. Lol all about getting being frugal and i was procrastinating. But i highly recommend the books, but if you aren't up for the highly sexual content then you probably won't like them. I think that they tell a beautiful story. It is dark and sad at times, but wonderful at the same time. I was obsessed and now i really have to work on my thesis. No fun! 

oh well! Laters, baby! 

let me know if you have read or are reading the books. I would love to discuss them!

things that make me happy

Steph at The Bargain Blonde posted yesterday about what makes her happy. I am pretty stressed right now with about a million papers including my 25 page senior thesis to write before graduation. So I thought I would write a post about what makes me happy!

Pacey and Joey. My all time favorite tv couple. just looking at tumblr pics of them puts a smile on my face. 

Watching Duke Lacrosse beat #1 UVA 13-5 ! Heck YEAH! Love my Blue Devils. 

This natural tanning lotion by Jergens is awesome. It gives super natural color and it smells great! 

my Buddy dog ! I can't believe he turns 10 this month!

Sometimes and Always Vol.3

Sometimes I stress out about all the work I have to do 
I Always eventually get it done. I keep reminding myself of this when I freak out about all I have to do before graduation. 
Sometimes I think it would be awesome to open a boutique or be a wedding planner or something fun like that. 
I Always remind myself that those “fun” jobs aren’t as easy as they might seem. They aren’t all glitz and glam and no job is. I am a huge overanalyzer and am amazed by all the jobs there are in the world. 
Sometimes I watch clips of old Dawson’s Creek episodes online, specifically Pacey and Joey videos. 
They Always make me happy and make me wish that Pacey Witter was not a fictional character.
