Eeeeeep, I am boreeed. Remember how I told you last time that my cat hates cuddling? Well this picture above is proof. Well sort of. She only cuddles by herself and it makes me mad! Just cuddle with me for once please. I don't think I'm that annoying to her….am I? Oh well, I still love her.

Turkey day is in 4 days. Goodness. I still don't know what I'm going to bake yet. Probably my world famous apple pie. This pie is seriously world famous. Have you not seen the billboards all over with a picture of me in my cute little apron holding an apple pie? Well if you haven't then you just haven't been out yet. Kidding, kidding. But really….this pie is amazing and always a HUGE hit. I want to bake something else though, I'm thinking I will try one of those sweet recipes that Emma from A Beautiful Mess created. I'll still be thinking about it.
Something that I'm freaking out about is I will have to cook the whole thanksgiving meal this year by. my. self. Well not necessarily, my little sister and little brother will be around to help, but still. My mom has to work Thanksgiving morning and will be getting off of work around 2. I have to load that turkey into the oven and make sure it doesn't burn the house down. To be honest I'm kind of excited. I'm not the greatest cook, but I have confidence in myself that this meal will blow everyones core because it will be that good.

Another thing that I'm excited about is seeing my bff. My biffle for liffle. She goes to school in Indiana so I only see her a couple times a year. Long distance friendships can be hard but luckily we have that friendship where as soon as we see each other we start right where we left off. Friendships like that are rare but once you find them hold on to them.

Oh yeah. I don't know about you guys that are still in school. But I have school thanksgiving week. Right?! What is up with that?! Haha okay well it's not so bad. I only go to school on tuesday but I have a test in each class next week so all I'm going to be doing this next week is studying, cooking, and finding time to hangout with my friends that are in town. Wow. This week is going to be insane.

Incase I don't talk to you all this week, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving day spent with your family and loved ones. For those of you who don't celebrate the holiday (my overseas friends) I promise to eat an extra slice of pie for you.

ps. I'm sorry this post was so long. I wasn't lying when I told you that I was bored. Now that I think about it, I should have been studying. Oops.

November 18 - 22, 2013

1// I bought coffee for myself. Found out it was a friends birthday and bought coffee for him. I made his day better and that made mine better.
2// I found this royal blue gem of a dress. She fit me perfectly and flowed beautifully over my body, but ya know, I had no place to wear her. So I passed her up cause I'm trying to save money. Not having a job does in fact suck sometimes. 
3// Secret time: I have never in my life paid for a vogue subscription. Ever. I don't even know why I get their magazines, but this year I have gotten four issues in the mail and I am soooo not complaining. To be honest I find what they talk about boring. BUT the advertisement ads inspire me. I rip those out and pin them on my bulletin. ugh. Those pictures are stunning. 
4// I am a morning person, I am, I am, I am. Sitting on a bench on campus, sipping my coffee, and people watching at 8 am is the most calming thing ever. Try it sometime. 
5// My cat. She is a character indeed. I wish she would cuddle more because I am a cuddler but she only wants to cuddle with you when she feels like it…which is rarely ever.
6// I am tree obsessed and the tree tops this season are to die for. Don't be surprised if you find me walking around just looking straight up and the trees. Man they are beautiful. 

Some things that I could not take a picture of:
1// I had a horrible day last tuesday. Tears and all were streaming down my face pretty much all day. I get like that sometimes, especially with the holidays coming up. I miss my dad and that's all there is to it. But I'm better now. New Girl & The Office healed me for a little bit. 
2// I finished season 5 of MadMen. Now I think I have to watch season 6 illegally *tear*
3// I cheated the system. I can't say much more about that but I cheated the system. muahaha.
4// Supposedly I looked like a lady bug on thursday…um…I don't think I did.
5// I realized that this year is  a l m o s t  o v e r         whaaaaat?!

What where you up to this week?

A Quote

"Maybe you just have to live for the small things, like being called pretty or someone picking up the pen you dropped or laughing so hard that your stomach hurts. Maybe that's all that really matters at the end of the day" -- Tianna Kavanagh

Sometimes I see quotes on my Tumblr feed that really strike me deep.

Texas Took My Breath Away

I should be writing a paper right now but the procrastination bug has bit me and I need to show you pictures of my field trip that I took with my geology class. This was totally freeeeeee! Well I guess my tuition payed for it, but none the less it was all free and totally worth one of my saturdays. I have never been to central Texas before so this was all completely new to me. Look at how beautiful this place is. We stopped in Austin for a bit to look at some faults and then drove a couple more hours to Enchanted Rock. That is where my breath was taken from me. Enchanted Rock was such a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful place. If you're ever in the Austin area and wanting to hike go there.

Here is a funny story. I went on this field trip two saturdays ago, then last saturday my family wanted to go, and now I am probably going to go again THIS SATURDAY because a friend of mine wants me to go with him. I will have spent 3 saturdays in a row at this place and you know, I am perfectly okay with that.

Texas my lovely state, you are beautiful.

Now I need to get back to writing my dreadful paper.

Requesting Hugs & Chocolate Cake & Tulips

I want to scream. I need to scream. School is stressing me out, life is stressing me out. Actually all of it is tied around school. I get like this every semester but this one is different. I think I want to change my major. I'm thinking about my future too much and that part is stressing me out too. What if I change my major? Will I be wasting another year? How many more classes will I need to take? What job opportunities are with that major?

I know what I want to do in life but that is only meant for the next few years. Once I reach that goal I won't know where to go from there. I just have one goal right now and I'm not loosing sight on it, but once I achieve that goal and get bored with it, then what?
Careers scare me. This is the part where I wish I could just be a kid forever and not grow up. Sometimes I wish I could just get married to a rich guy, have a kid, and become a stay at home mom. Then this is the part where I slap myself across my face and say no, heck no. I have a whole life ahead of me to live. That would be the easy way out of everything. I think that I am still single for a reason and that is because life is saying "Melissa I want you to go out, enjoy your life, and be happy for yourself "

Man I just feel like crying right now. Would it surprise you if I told you I was?

I am realizing now that things can be tough and some things take hard work to accomplish.
I know I'm just rambling. But this is what I do when I don't know what else to do. I write it down.

Now this is the part where I need chocolate cake, I need a hug, and I would love to receive some tulips (preferably pink tulips)

Dear future,
Thanks for freaking me out.

Yep. I have been MIA lately. You know how school goes.

These pictures above are the only interesting things that I have been up to. Oh but I did forget to take a picture of me watching Mad Men. That show has become my obsession. Thank you Netflix. Thank you Don Draper.

So it's already November. Ahhhhh this year is ALMOST OVER. Every one says this but I mean, where the heck did this year go?! Thinking about it, it's sad how fast time flies. But that's life. It's up to us to slow down and look at how far we have come in our lives. I'm much happier and so so so very content with where I am at right now than how I was at the beginning of this year.

I'm blessed with amazing people in my life right now. It's nice. I love it.
