I feel like at least once a week I make a blog post about how stressed/ anxious I am. I've been trying to get to the bottom of those feelings and have been working to change them. I've been doing a lot of thinking about school and if I want to struggle to complete on time (May '13) which would omit any sort of social life I once had. Every little break in school would require an intersession/ summer course and honestly, i'm not willing to give up those fun times. So as of today, i've decided to take an extra semester. I'm okay with this. I think part of me wanting to graduate next May is so I could start my 'grown up' life earlier, but that future part of my life is another stressor right now. I'm really young. 21. I don't want to rush and miss out on opportunities to grow artistically and creatively. I need more experiences in my life to become who i'm supposed to be. This may mean internships, studying abroad or joining campus publications. I've also researched places in the City to get my certification in Adobe inDesign and Photoshop. Now that i'm adding on a semester, I have time to do these things--I can breathe again
I've also been granted recording time at a studio in Tulsa & I haven't recorded music since I was 16 so i'm wayy excited!! I will be working on original songs for this & will try to give you all a sneak peak before they're recorded. : )

In an attempt to not make this post complete text, I want to show you a few things i'm becoming obsessed with lately! 

I FINALLY ordered a pair of cowboy boots. Aren't they pretty?!
I started Army Wives this past week. Seasons 1-5 are on Netflix! It make me cry like nobody's business.

I browsed Forever 21 Friday & got an aztec poncho. Too bad it's almost summer : /
I could never decide If I was for or against the fur vest trend, but I found 1 at Forever for $20 so I grabbed it. I guess I'll decide next winter!

Since I work early mornings, I've been grabbing these drinks & they taste like a nutritional milkshake. So yum & full of vitamins! (250 cals)
I purchased one of those 'short in the front, long in the back' maxi skirts recently. I asked my brother to take a picture of it...this is what I got.
Amanda me & Candice... nights out in Norman : )
Started my Friday night at Fuzzy's with a Corona & peach margarita. I sent this to Josh to tell him I wish he was sitting next to me. I feel like it's already been another month since i've seen him..
As always, thanks for letting me vent! Hope you all had a great weekend.

  1. I went to my advisor last week to plan out the rest of my semesters. I am faced with the same situation! Either ruin the rest of my life and take 400 hours a semester and graduate in May '13 or take another semester. I think I'm going to opt for the 2nd.
    Also, you should totally get certified and then we should own our own business someday. I'll do the photography side, you do the graphic design and editing. Sounds like a perfect duo.
    On one last note, I LOVE that you are recording again. I'll be the first one to buy an album. You promised me the cover shoot a long time ago though! :)
