Mr. Greg BuddHA

I'm devoting this post to my fish and my roommate because I'm sure she's missing Greg (the fish) a whole lot! haha Today I hung out for most of the day. When my family got home later in the day we walked around the neighborhood. I cleaned out Greg's tank today and he sure is a happy camper! :)

Today I went to the mall with my mom. I helped her pick out some summer clothes and I bought new sandals and shorts for the warm weather! Later I went over to Teddy's house for his family party. We had more cookout food and swam in the pool. It was extremely hot out today and the water was so refreshing. We also kicked a soccer ball around a little and just hung out.

I left my camera home today, so this'll do. :)
27 days!

Ryan Cook-Out

Today I hung out and played the guitar a little bit before our Memorial Day party we hosted this afternoon/evening. We had our first cook out of the season which really made it feel like summer. Some of us played frisbee for a while and later we watched a movie. These nights are part of why I love summer so much :)

I recently got the Zumba game for the kinect on Xbox and played for the first time today! It was just like the fitness class I would take at school, just with different music. After my workout, I helped my parents outside and ran to the store for my mom. Later I met up with Teddy and Tim and we went mini-golfing! We got ice cream after and it was a perfect summer day :)

This morning I went over to Teddy's and helped him with an outside project. It was super hot outside today and I wish my pool was open! When I got home I found that my mom had bought me a Taylor Swift guitar book to play around for the summer! I taught myself a few new chords and now I can play most of the songs on her Fearless album :) A little later Teddy came over and we walked to Subway for dinner. It was a fun walk and I'm so glad that summer weather is finally here. 

One of my favorite songs on this album!

"Country" Idol

Last night was the finale of American Idol. A lot of people were calling it "Country" Idol because the two finalists were both country singers. I watched the recording of the finale today and *spoiler alert* was surprised that Lauren didn't win. I guess I really didn't care who won..but if I had to listen to one of them on the radio I would probably choose Lauren. Scotty is good, but a little too country for me!

Short post..Today I went to the mall to find some summer clothes! Later I hung out at Teddy's.

Lazy Day #2
I spent a lot of today watching a Law and Order SVU marathon! My suitemates got me addicted to that show, and whenever it's on there are always back to back episodes (usually a marathon). Later, Teddy came over and we played a long game of zombies on Black Ops. We got to level 26 and I was very proud of myself! haha

This picture is of a bag my aunt gave to me. She purchased it in Mexico!

This morning I hung out for a while and met Teddy for lunch at Bruegger's. Whenever I go to Bruegger's I have to get a cinnamon sugar bagel with cream cheese..so delicious! I took the rest of the day to relax and enjoy being home for the summer. I have a feeling that for most of this week I will be doing a lot of nothing. My summer job (Valleycats) doesn't start until mid-June and I don't babysit until school is out, so I don't have much to do. I'm not complaining!

Today was a pretty laid back day. I didn't do much until later when my mom and I went to Target. I bought this month's issue of InStyle magazine..mostly because there was an article on Taylor Swift. Inside the magazine, I found a picture of a runway model with big curls and a one-strap blue outfit, and it reminded me a lot of what I wore at the fashion show! I'll add a picture comparing the two. After Target we picked up dinner at Moe's. I went over to Teddy's house later and we watched a couple episodes of Lie to Me.

Fashion Show!

Today I woke up and went straight outside to help my family with our garage sale. Our garage was packed since a few family members brought stuff of their own to sell. I'm not sure why but I love when we have garage sales :) We all eat lunch together and have fun selling our junk! In the afternoon I had to leave so I could go to my designer's house and get ready for the fashion show. They did my extravagant hair and make-up, and we all rushed to Proctor's to make it there in time for the dress rehearsal. All the designs were great and congrats to Sara for winning the Best of Broadway competition :) After the show, a couple of us grabbed Subway for dinner and hung out at my house. Here are some pictures!

Finally Home for Summer

This morning I woke up early to get a little extra studying in for my last exam. My Language Disorders final was at 10:15, and when I finished I felt so relieved! It feels nice to be done with school work for 3 whole months. After my exam I focused on packing all my stuff into my car. It didn't take me long at all and within an hour I was on the road home :) When I got home I picked up my brother from school. Later I picked up Teddy and we hung out at a friend's house! Tomorrow me and two of my friends, Sara and Taylor, are modeling in the Electric City Couture Fashion Show at Proctor's. We brought our shoes that we are wearing in the show and practiced our walk. Later we all grabbed some ice cream. I'm so excited to be home and for the fashion show tomorrow!

These aren't the exact shoes I'm wearing, but they are very similar.

I'm right here hoping that you'll come in with the rain.

This morning, the remaining five of us went to brunch and I studied every free moment I had. Two more of my suitemates moved out today, so I helped them carry all their stuff out to the cars. My dad also came to pick up some of my stuff since I can't fit everything into my car. And then there were three.. We cleaned the suite and I studied A LOT. The vibe of our suite has completely changed now that so many people moved out. I can't wait to finish my finals and go home tomorrow! Here's a picture of my empty, de-decorated, and sad room. lol

Everytime we say Goodbye

Today I dropped off my Soc & Phil essay and practiced my ASL dialogue. A few of my suitemates moved out today and it was so sad :(. At 5 I went to present my ASL dialogue. My friend, Alisa, and I performed and I think we did really well! Later a couple of us took our roommates' empty mattresses and moved them out into the common room to watch a movie! We also bought a whole bunch of snacks to use up my leftover dining dollars. It was a fun little movie night :) Here's a picture of my study/snack/movie watching area.

This morning I had my phonetics final. It wasn't too bad! Right after I handed in my Language Disorders project. I felt great after finishing a final and handing in that big project! I spent the rest of the day working on my essay for Soc & Phil. We all went to dinner as a family for the last time this semester. I took a couple of pictures of my room since since it's the last day before we de-decorate and take everything apart.

One Step at a Time

Not much to say about today. I spent a lot of my day studying for my Phonetics test tomorrow.  I also finished up my Language Disorders project and printed out all 15 pages to hand in tomorrow. Here's a cute video I found a few days ago :)

Saturday, May 14, 2011


Today I woke up and spent five straight hours working on my Language Disorders project. It took me forever, but it could have been worse! This project was fun even though it was a lot of work. By the time I was finished it was time for dinner. We all got ready later for our End of the Year Party! We had a few friends come over and we had snacks and hung out :) It was an interesting night, but still a lot of fun! Here are some picturesss.

Final Friday

It's Friday the 13th! This morning I had my first final exam. I'm so glad that I have one final out of the way, and I think I did pretty well. For the rest of the day and night I hung out and worked on my Language Disorders project. It's coming along nicely, but I still have a lot of work to do on it. I also did some laundry and we watched Say Yes to the Dress. Fridays are boring during finals.

Walking on Sunshine

Today was another day full of work and studying. To change it up a little bit, a few of us went outside to enjoy the beautiful day :) We sat in a different spot than usual, right by the pond. It was so relaxing to be outside and it felt nice to soak up the sun. Later, all of us got dinner together and grabbed frozen yogurt for dessert! We took some photos and I got back to work after that. I have my first final tomorrow, but I'm not too worried about it. Goodnight!

I took this picture last year with my phone..

this is the same tree this year :)

He's just not that into you.

Today was day 1 of studying. I don't have a final until Friday, but I have plenty of work to keep me busy until then. I spent most of my day working on a project and preparing myself for my Interpersonal Comm. final. In the middle of the day, I met my friend to practice our dialogue for ASL. Other than that my day was pretty laid back. Before going to bed we watched He's Just Not That Into You...love it.

Something Borrowed

Today I had class in the morning and afterwards worked on my project. In the middle of the day I went to a review class for one of my finals. I spent the rest of the day studying for my ASL final exam which was at 4:30. As soon as I got back, a bunch of us headed into town. A few of us decided to get pedicures to prepare ourselves before this long week of finals ahead of us :). I chose a bright fuschia-purple color! It was really nice to relax after a long day. When we were done we went right next door to the cinema to see Something Borrowed. It's a romantic comedy and it was so good! Today was a good day :)

Projects & NSSLHA Banquet

Today is my last day of Monday classes! After I was done with classes for the day, I went to talk to one of my professors about a project. The project is for my Language Disorders class and we are supposed to develop an intervention plan based of a case history given to us. My professor gave me helpful feedback and I'm glad I went. I worked more on the project later and had a NSSLHA banquet from 6-8. At the banquet, we had dinner and we listened to guest speakers who all had laryngectomies. This is the full or partial removal of the larynx (voice box) due to laryngeal cancer. One of the patients used a form of augmentative communication, where he typed in what he wanted to say and a machine would read it to everyone. Others used  a voice prosthesis which you may have seen before. It was very interesting and informative to hear all of their stories. Later, we watched The Rescuer's (yes the disney movie :) )

Love you Mom!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
I'm going to make this post quick! This morning I woke up and watched Back to the Future. A little later Teddy stopped by and we hung out for a little bit. Some of my family came over to my house for dinner and we watched the video I made my mom for mother's day! I drove back to school after dessert and now have only 11 more days until I'm home for the summer! :) Here are some pictures I took today as well as some pictures I incorporated into the Mother's Day video.

Thor, Frisbees, and Unicycles

This morning I woke up early and hung out. It was another beautiful day today, so I sat outside with my parents for a while. My brother and I brought out the frisbees and played with them for a while. Later, we visited my aunt and I went over to my designer's house for a fitting. I'm so excited to wear her designs again and for the fashion show in a couple of weeks! Teddy and Tim came over later and we went to the movies to see Thor. My brother came with us too. I wasn't sure if I would like this movie at first, but I ended up liking it a lot! After the movie we grabbed a late dinner (I got Moe's :] ) and then headed back to my house. Here's a bunch of pictures I took today!

I didn't even realize there was a rainbow until I uploaded this photo!
