I have to start working on my sociological capstone project soon (I think other schools might call this a senior seminar or senior thesis). My first assignment is due July 1st. My mother reminds me about it every day, and my response is to usually run out of the room. […]
Three years ago this summer marks getting my first restaurant job. I worked at Macaroni Grill in Westlake (the rich part of Austin). I started as a waitress and after a week of training/crying in my car on breaks, I decided waiting tables was not for me and became head […]
This section is for all of my favorite things and loves lately. No better way to start it than a picture of my old gray girl Bicky, plus Scott in the background with coffee. Love it!
25 Golden Rules of Running (Click link above for article) Runner’s World is one of my favorite magazines. Like “Oxygen Magazine” with fitness, I can’t read it and continue to lay around in bed. I read a back issue of RW for five minutes and I am lacing up my […]
So I was in a focus group yesterday with ten other Austin women. We were told to dress business professional for the meeting, and I wore a Forever 21 polka dot pencil skirt, a white eyelet blouse, and blue blazer that I bought on clearance at Nordstrom’s Rack. Other women […]

Welcome to my new website! I have just come over to the world of Word Press from Tumblr. Nothing against Tumblr, or Blogger, my other two hosts, but I was ready for a change. It’s sort of like my life at Southwestern University. After two different community colleges in two […]

Yesterday I had blogged about my favorite foods, finally deciding on cake. And while cake is good, and I love those special days when I treat myself to a cake ball or something, there are SO MANY things that I like better! A scan through my iPhoto was the perfect […]
In April, I wrote a blog post called “Unpopular Opinions.” And tonight, while neurotically sifting back through my blog, I reread this post. There are SO many inaccuracies! I guess at 22 years old, my life and who I am changes pretty quickly. For example, I have very recently developed […]
Do you want something that is sweet, easy to make, cool for the summer, and super healthy? Ahhh, me too. And I want it to actually fill me up, unlike an ice pop or bowl of Arctic Zero whey-protein ice cream (although that stuff is good). Introducing the perfect summer […]
Tonight was the very wild Keep X-Games Weird rally in downtown Austin. I had completely forgotten about this event and was planning on going for my run when Scott called. He told me that he was riding in the event, and I should come down. It was like 6 PM, […]
