hey mister dj, put a record on

Went and saw the new Chronicles of Narnia movie today (Voyage of the Dawn Treader) and I really enjoyed it! The movie definitely changed some parts of the book but totally did it in a way that still worked and made sense with the overall plot. The actor who played Eustace was spot on and Prince Caspian was hot...I might have to rewind a bit and watch the last movie just for the eye-candy haha. Anywho, even though I'm the farthest thing from someone who likes to cook (I'd eat ramen every other day if it was up to me and usually do when I'm at school), I made eggrolls today! Nom! Believe me when I say this probably won't happen again anytime soon...

Here are some other pitchahss of things in my life right this very second:

A gingerbread house my little bro and I made with our kitchen
 Christmas tree in the background. Oh hey Santa!
clearly the peppermint windows didn't work out the way we wanted

Oh Christmas Tree!

a real nail biter

Completely ruined my nails today by chomping them all the way down. I do so well for like a month, letting my nails grow and keeping them faaaar away from my teeth and then BAM next thing I know I've bitten like half of my nails down without even realizing it. And then I just have to bite the rest of them down to the same level because I can't have my nails at different lengths. When I was younger my mom seriously used to bribe me to not bite my nails...maybe I can get her to reinstate that? Between bouts of ruining my diy mani, I (drumroll pleaseeeeeeee) finished my first cover letter! Yay me! And it took me far less time than writing that stupid resume the other day. SO productive.

Remember when I said I was going to New York in a few weeks? Weeeell, now I'm not. I totally forgot that I have plans already that weekend. I'm going to a military ball for my dad with my roommate and both of our parental units. Kinda sad that I'm missing the revelry that is being 21 and unsupervised in the city but I already have a gorgeous dress to wear so it evens out in the end...or something. I'll take pictures of me at the ball so you can see it. I'm obsessed.

the write way

Writing resumes sucks. Like a lot. I'm trying to actually start sending out my applications and resumes for summer or fall internships and it literally took me hoooours to get my resume in some semblance of an order. Since you're apparently supposed to tweak your resume for each thing you apply to, this is going to get really old really fast. I guess once I get the hang of it, though, it won't be quite so painful...right? Keeping my fingers crossed for that one. Even though I'm getting really frustrated and bogged down by all this internshipy stuff, I can't let it consume me sooooooo I took loads of breaks to go online window shopping. Oops.

If we couldn't have a white Christmas, at least we could have a white Boxing Day! (Like what's the point of Boxing Day? I don't get it) It's been snowing practically all day and it looks so dark and creepy outside now. I took my dog out earlier and it was bitter cold out...days like these are what hulu and hot chocolate were invented for. Seriously. I don't really watch a lot of tv generally but I'm getting so antsy for new shows to start again. Only a few more days until the return of Greek and Archer and Pretty Little Liars. Oh and season 3 of Jersey Shore! CAN. NOT. WAIT. Winter break is boring me senseless right now even though I'm attempting to get through War and Peace for the third time. Such lofty goals...not. My friends and I have a weekend in nyc planned in a few weeks and I'm practically counting down the days.

ps- thoughts on duck boots? I need a pair of snow shoes and these are pretty cheap.

twas the night before christmas

Only a few more hours till its CHRISTMAS! We had our usual Christmas eve party tonight with plenty of people, food (I will NEVER get enough of bacon wrapped scallops or asparagus), and merriment. I, of course, did what I always do and disappeared to my room with a loaded plate and some DVDs (this time it was gossip girl season 3- gotta have something to tide me over till it's back!).

Can't wait to see what tomorrow and Santa brings...t-minus 1 hour and 43 minutes
p.s. - loving the google homepage today!

I never realized how many fratty music websites there are! I accidentally misspelled my favorite mix-up/mash-up/fratastic playlist site (fratmusic ftw although fratstars is coming up fast (LOVE their christmas mix! who knew there was such a thing as dubstep Christmas music!?)) when I was typing it in earlier and google search pulled up literally 5 different pages where I could get my frat on. ANYWAYS when I was checking out all my options, I found a new graduation song that's a much more upbeat option to Vitamin C's graduation anthem. Not that I don't love the classic tear jerker but variety is the spice of life!

Spent my day looking up governmental internships down in the DC area and making lists about getting my life together. Fun times...really.

Game Changer

All I've been able to think about lately is graduation and how soon it's coming up....only FIVE more months! College graduation is so much more finite than graduating from high school. Before it was like obviously you go to college after high school but there's nothing obvious about the end of college. Should I go to grad school? Should I get another internship or start looking for a real job? Where do I want to live? What do I want to do with my life? All these questions and I have no solid answers to any of them. It's stressing me OUT. Right now I'm thinking about schools or jobs or whatever in either DC or NYC because they seem like the best places for someone with an international studies major to set up shop but let's see how that works out...


only 3 more days till Christmas! time to pop in "Elf" and get my gift wrap on!

roma roma-ma

I've been craving a new fun nail polish for a few weeks now and after seeing a model wearing white in a story in the January issue of one of my favorite magazines, I was feeling really inspired so I bought some OPI Alpine Snow for myself earlier today. I think I may actually have found my new favorite shade! It looks really fun and fresh because white's such an unexpected color for nails. My little brother says it makes my hands pop (whatever that means) so I feel like this color will be in heavy rotation when I get back to school. Oh and fun fact: apparently this is the same nail polish used in Lady GaGa's Bad Romance video! Cool!

Miami 2 Ibiza

GAHHH! I am seriously stressing out right now! The zipper on my new woolen Michael Kors winter jacket got stuck recently so I turned to Google to help me figure out how to fix it. Turns out I got a little overzealous because now the zipper is completely and totally broken! Think I could get it fixed at a local dry-cleaners? I really do need a new dark winter coat because I accidentally ripped the pocket off my last one (I'm starting to sense a pattern here...) so now I don't know what to do. Balls.

On a more fun note, I'm really into house music and techno recently. Take a listen!

easy like sunday mornings

I've always known that I was a pack rat but today i realized just how bad my problem was. I was going through my bookshelves trying to decide what I could throw out when i came across one of my math notebooks from high school. Logic (haha math joke!) told me that I should throw it out considering I haven't taken a math class in literally 5 years but somehow I just couldn't make myself do it. Eventually, I realized just how ridiculous I was being and tossed it but still! SUCH a struggle.

I've been trying to come up with the perfect outfit for NYE. I know that it's completely cliche but I've really been  jonesing for a sequined mini-skirt lately...only problem is that since I'm so tall it's really hard to find short skirts that don't look scandalous. I'm obsessed with this one because it seems long enough for my legs but still super fun. LOVING the overlapping in the front. 
Too bad I can't actually justify the price tag...besides maybe I want something with a bit more color?
