ugh, just ugh

heyo! i love this picture.
oy vey -- today i had a speech in English class and UGH i just wish i could do it again! don't we all do that? when you sit down after a presentation and think of all the things you could have done better? well that's what i' doing. i can't stop thinking about what info i missed and how i should have kept going instead of stopping when i still had PLENTY of time left. usually i'm not this hung up on things and am just glad to get it over with. it must have been BAD if i'm thinking about it this long after it's over.
anyway.. check this song out. it's real purty.

happy (really cold) Monday!

1) nights when my parents want to play the I Love Lucy board game = the best nights
2) picked this up at Salvo for $2! LOVE this movie!
3) i can't describe how much i love randomly Skyping with Alexandra on the weekends. we catch each other up on everything and act as if we're really in the same room together. i miss her too much.
4) it's gotten the coldest in York it's been in probably 2 years! it got down to about 11 degrees here a couple days ago... that was WAY rough. i think it's time for warm weather now.
oh and call me nuts, but i love this song:
hehe... i mean don't you want to dance? kind of? and i guess just because it's about thrift stores.. and i love thrift stores. i really want to take a trip to Goodwill soon! i've NEVER been there! i usually go to Salvation Army and i want to see what else is here in good ol' York ;)

Katie day

so ever since i got my license i've been planning to go on solo dates to the movie theater. i just like the idea of taking time to yourself seeing a movie or getting ice cream or something! it gives you a break from any chaos that's going on in life. so a couple of weeks ago i finally got to go!
i went to see The Guilt Trip and it was SO good! it's a really funny and heartwarming movie forsure. perfect for me -- i love funny movies over everything and Seth Rogan is such a funny person. and then there are just moments when you find yourself smiling at the screen because of what happend and how sweet it was. i definitely reccomend you see it!
anyway, it was a really good Sunday afternoon and i want to have solo movie dates more often. but i don't really see any good movies coming out until at lease mid February. are there any movies you're looking forward to seeing?

Lucy fashion

today i watched the episode Lucy Learns to Drive and her outfit was so cute! she wears really nice outfits in all episodes, and definitely clothes that people don't wear today. you never see her wearing sweatpants or short shorts or tank tops that show off more than needed. she wears classy and feminine clothes!
here, she's just wearing a striped shirt, with black pants, flats, and a cropped peacoat! love!
who do you look up to fashion-wise?

Loving: the 3 day weekend! who wouldn't love a 3 day weekend?!
Thinking about: if i should get a job for the Summer.
Watching: Hart of Dixie. if you haven't seen it, watch it. i'm watching the first season on Netflix right now, but season 2 is currently airing on The CW!
Anticipating: warm weather. even though we're probably heading into the coldest part of the year right now, i' pretty done with the cold. i want warmth! i want to be able to drive with the windows down!
Listening to: nothing specific, but i'm loving Demons by Imagine Dragons.

Working on: preparing myself for how crazy the next few months will be with the SAT prep, SAT, college thoughts, research papers, job decisions, etc
Wishing: i had all of my bestfriends here with me just like the old days. they're all in different states (and in one case, a different country!) and i miss getting to spend the weekends with them all the time. we had SO much fun together! and now we won't ALL be together for at least 2 more years. sad thought.

**the first picture is from my Tumblr and the second is from my Instagram! and i got this 'currently' post idea from the blog Sometime Sweet

can i quickly talk about how much i love tattoos? i love seeing them on other people. i want tattoos like crazy. i mean, i won't become the next zombie boy... or anything close to him, but come on!

i also am not really a fan of when people get tattoos just because they 'look cool'. i feel that the tattoo should have some sort of meaning. it is on your body forever. i'm kind of bad with that though.. i wouldn't want to get one just because i thought it looked cool and then outgrow it in a week, but most of the tattoos i want don't really have meaning to them. get me?

but anyway, here are a few tattoos that i've pinned!

brain bust

hey y'all! midterms are OVER! phew, finally. i can honestly say i've done more studying this week than i have ever done before. (but i'm not much of a studier, so hey.) ugh -- it's been a stressful couple weeks, and the next month isn't going to be fun either with all the research papers and presentations and SAT prep classes and blah blah blah.
but it's a 3 days weekend and t'will be fab! :)

i LOVE these snowy pictures by Mark Peter Drolet, on Flickr!

Sunday, January 06, 2013


here are some Insta-latelys from me:
{my dad and Sister on Christmas, my Christmas outfit, my two cousins and me, enjoying a snow day}

{i got lost while driving one day, the beautiful sky, Cody by the fire, more snowfall}

{got to spend time with my best friend on her break, my sister and me, my sister sharing the love, getting Chipotle on New Years Eve}

{back to school, the last picture of the tree, fun in the hallway of my Nana and Pop-pop's condo, my cousin made a fabulous Elf Yourself of me and Channing Tatum}

and i just has to add this because it's hilarious -- my cousin Snap Chatted this to me from the other side of the room. haha!!
now i'm off to the movie theater to see The Guilt Trip. i haven't been to the movies in what seems like forever!

"He's right, Car. I am afraid. There's a part of me that wants to let him in but then I feel myself put this wall up and I don't understand why. Maybe that's what strikes me most about Kostas: that despite everything he's suffered he can still look at life in the most uncomplicated way. I've never known that kind of faith. It makes me so sad that people like Kostas and Bridget who have lost everything can still be open to love... while I, who have lost nothing, am not."
