Currently :: February

I am self-aware enough to know that if I think I could compete with #DressGate and #LlamaGate, I'm more loco than –– OKAY BUT IS IT WHITE AND GOLD OR BLUE AND BLACK. Someone please save us all. Truth is, it changed for me. I saw one, and then hours later, I saw the other.

Dear world, enjoy the little secret that we psychology majors have known since Day 1 of Psychology Major 101: perception is subjective and wacko, and our minds are out to get us.

With that said, the rest of February (February! Say what?!), I've been...
Watching :: my way through FRIENDS. (Am Caroline's real life friends, can confirm. She has not been sighted in a concerning number of days.)

Eating :: a lot of snacks! I'm not typically a snacker, but this month I've been all about the dried mangoes and BBQ chips and Samoas and red velvet AND birthday cake Oreos. BRB, off to do a crunch. One. One crunch.

Chilling :: with a lot of parents! February has been a month of parents (mine, friends', strangers' too I guess) dropping by for visits, and we've been reaping benefits like good food and vacuumed rooms. Of course our dorm room always looks this impeccable, why would you ever question that?

Planning :: my Spring Break in Austin! Plane tickets, check. Friends to hang out with, check. A Google Doc of a million different restaurants I need to try, to be checked!! Any suggestions?

Playing :: beach volleyball. Well, not me personally because beach volleyball is a physical activity, so yeah right. But it's been so warm and sunny here that people spend weekends sprawled out on lawns in their bikinis suntanning, or playing beach volleyball, or sloshball, or makeshift mini-golf, or other A-hole things to do when it's 80 degrees here and only here. (Don't hate me, I'm so sorry.)

Reading :: Yes Please. To which I say, yes please!
Enjoying :: A lot of me-time on weekends. Which is awesome and all – I love my long walks and productivity and making an effort to see friends I don't usually get to see – butttttttttttttttttt, I'm... 

Waiting :: for softball season to end and for all my favorite girlies to do nothing but hang out with me 24/7. 

Needing :: a caffeine fix. I've been an idiot in that I'm trying to cut back on Starbucks recently, and I plead insanity and all, but pleeeeeease someone just end my misery and gimme gimme some espresso, expresso. Teehee.

Wearing :: Leggings more often than not. At least I change out of my pajama shorts, because don't think I haven't thought about what you're thinking I might have thought about. I have.

Feeling :: that senior year, second term stress. Let's not talk about it.

Wishing :: to be in Europe. I hate to beat this to the ground, but I can't believe a year ago, I was half a world away. My roommate and I are in the midst of planning a summer getaway to Europe, and I'm half-wishing time away so we can just be there already, and half-wishing time to stop so I never have to leave this sunny little home of mine.

  2. "Perception is reality..." I kept wishing I was still in school taking my "Perception & Sensation" class so I could just talk about that damn dress and the science behind it! Once again, you nailed the psychology majors mind!

  3. Dress? What dress? I saw a white turtle with gold lace! hahaha
    And oh how it would be lovely to be in Europe! Or anywhere warm, for that matter! Up in MN we've been sitting at -20+ and this morning I was actually excited to see it at -8. Pathetic, no?
    Love Friends! Possibly one of the best shows ever :)

  4. Ohhhh the dress!!! lol! I saw white and gold. I'm not sure what that means but I can't see the black and blue at all. Weird! I would love to go to Europe someday! Maybe when my little one is just a little bit older, my husband and I can escape for a while. lol

  7. That dress took over my Facebook feed yesterday, for some reason I decided not to be bothered by it and haven't checked it out. Sounds like it is a big deal though ha ha! I love the name Help is Here for the wine!!

  8. I'm mad because I can only see the dress as white and gold which makes me upset because apparently that means I stared at the sun too much as a child or something. The whole ordeal is making me frustrated but who to I have to blame but myself (for never wearing sunglasses BECAUSE they look dumb on me). But yeah I'm glad your dorm room is so perfectly pristine...it's encouraging me to clean my bedroom (maybe).

  9. I stayed up WAY too late trying to figure out that damn dress. I saw black and blue, but my best friend saw white and gold so basically we're no longer twinsies and that makes me very sad! I just really thought we saw the world the same way, ya know ;-) I'm reading Bossypants right now and Yes Please is next! I've only heard great things about it. Happy Friday!! :-)

  11. Girl yes to "perception is subjective". Us psych majors are just so dang smart. I also feel you on that senior year stress. I'm on the quarter system and have 1 quarter left after this one. I'm drowning. SOS.
