Today was extremely unproductive and I strayed from my study schedule. :( So I figured if it 10:20 and I haven't really studied, then what is the chance that I'm going to start soon? Ummmm...i gonna go with no chance at all. I might even read Harry Potter when I'm done with this...gasp!

There was one productive part of my day though: blurbs. That's what I'm going to start incorporating in my blog! For the most part, I don't have anything that is too interesting to focus an entire blog on (unless the post was going to be a single sentence) so I thought I could post blurbs about what was going on in my mind throughout the day. Here goes! (P.S. I wrote a list on my phone of things to include in my blurbs. i love lists.)

*Next week is going to be horrible. I have three tests: Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. And the major bummer is that I enjoy studying for only one of them! I know most people don't enjoy studying at all, but I really like my Child and Family Development class so studying for it is pretty interesting! The other two, Housing and Consumer Economics and Food and Nutrition, are tests that I would rather not have to deal with. I don't really have a clue about what is going on in either class, but hey, why not memorize some information now and they forget it next week? I don't understand why college makes you take classes that have nothing to do with your major. It defeats the entire point of college in my mind.

*Speaking of college, I had advisement today. It was pretty discouraging hearing that there is a high chance that I won't get the classes that I need/want, but hey, there's nothing I can do about it! But I did decide on something. UGA doesn't have a psychology minor (seriously?) so I'm going to use all of my elective hours toward psychology. WAHOOOO

*Tuesday, me and the roomies (Sara and Kayla) and another friend (Kerry) went to see An Education. I RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO EVERYONE! It was awesome! I went in without any clue as to what the movie was about so I was really surprised. The acting is amazing and so is the story line. There is a twist that I don't think was expected by anyone, but it really made the movie 100x better. While we're on the topic of movies, I'm pretty excited about seeing Dear John tomorrow. I haven't read the book yet just so it won't ruin the movie (which happened with The Time Traveler's Wife and My Sister's Keeper...boo).

*Classical music during studying = very helpful. It keeps you concentrated on what you're studying without being distracting. I recommend the soundtracks to The Notebook, A Beautiful Mind, Titanic, and Atonement. LOVE IT

*Today I went home (reason why the day was NOT productive). I cleaned my house instead of studying and I went to the dentist. I really don't understand why people don't like the dentist, THEY ARE THERE TO HELP YOU! I actually enjoy the dentist! I always leave with super clean teeth :)

*I'm on the second disc of the fifth season of Friends! YAY! That show never gets old. It has become a must in the mornings while I'm getting ready.

*I HATE JOB SEARCHING! I was told by my mother that I need a "big girl" job which, apparently, doesn't include Smoothie King. Hey, a job is a job Mom! I need money (hence why I went home to clean today)! Yesterday, I spent at least an hour calling all over Athens to see if anyone was hiring. Guess what the result was...no one was! It is very depressing to hear the same line ("We're not hiring, but we're always accepting applications!") repeated a hundred times. I also spent a very long time filling out online applications. All of the stores use the same company for the applications so I spent over and hour answering the same questions over and over. IRRITATING

*TIP for all of the females at UGA (yes, again). If you absolutely have to wear leggings, at least wear a shirt that is long enough to cover your butt. I don't know about anyone else, but I do NOT want to see you walking around with your butt barely covered by an extremely thin fabric. It's not appealing.

*I'm very excited to volunteer at Colbert this weekend! I'm ready to help with all of the doggies :)

*Tonight on the way back to Athens, I had my iPod on shuffle. I was listening to a Patty Griffin song and when the next song came on, I was pleasantly surprised. I was Mr. Michael Jackson, himself. I love me some Michael! His songs are the best when you're in a car. Especially when it's dark; no one can see how stupid you look dancing and singing every word :) (The next song was Michael Bubble [yes I know it Buble] which was also awesome because there was a choir in the background, something I thoroughly enjoy)

*I have found yet another music video that makes me cry: "Temporary Home" by Carrie Underwood. It has such a wonderful message and the end of the video has gotten me every time I have watched it! SO SAD

K well that's all of the blurbs I have for now! :) I'm sure I'll think of some more tomorrow. Night!

P.S. Sorry if most of them are negative! I didn't mean for them to come across that way :)


  1. blurbs, nice! my monotone blog is completely unfocused too...yay!

  3. I loved An Education!! Good luck with all your tests ;)

  4. now i see why an education was nominated for all of those awards!
    thanks for the luck! :)

    i think her video is easy to relate to if you have someone in the hospital or someone that was in one. it puts everything in perspective with the lyrics and makes you realize whats really important. hope your weekend was great too Betty!
