7 Things to Finish Off 2010...

So Hannah over at The Key To Me tagged me in her 7 things post over 2 weeks ago, and me being lazy and such, just realized I was tagged about 10 minutes ago. I was actually shocked but I'm excited! This whole having readers thing is still pretty new to me! =)

And here we go, 7 Things You Probably Don't Know About Me:

1. I am a hip hop dancer. I started dancing my senior spring of high school and it's been all I think about when I listen to music ever since. One day I aspire to really take it seriously and join a crew or team out in SoCal where they take it seriously and have some really unique flair, like this team from the University of California: Irvine!


2. I have a strange obsession with Staples and school supplies. I have more notebooks and pens than I will ever use, but I like them too much. I also have too many colored paper & binder clips, pretty erasers, interesting and unique mechanical pencils, and other random school supplies!

3. I procrastinate way too much. This never used to be a problem until this year and I'm not sure why. I have gotten into the habit of being lazy and watching Weeds instead of doing homework... but who could resist this face?



(Again, Courtesy Google Images)

4. I watch way too much TV (or rather, online TV.) Some of my favorite shows are the following: Desperate Housewives, Make It or Break It, Weeds, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Community, and Glee (just to name a very small few.) The Office has been my favorite lately!


(Courtesy Google Images ... I bet you can guess the pattern.)

5. I bite my nails. It's my New Year's resolution to stop so I can have beautiful nails once again. There's a funny story behind this one. My sophomore year in high school I got acrylic nails with my best friend at the time. A couple weeks later it was Halloween and we were "dark fairies" so we had to take the nails off to paint them for our costumes. She had bitten her nails for 10 years prior to the nail painting, I had never bitten mine before. Next thing you know, she's done biting hers and all I can do is bite mine. =/ I want to have nails like this by 2012:

(Courtesy weheartit , which is a change... huh? I'm also very sarcastic.)

Or at least this length. Even though the polish is adorable. I love nail polish too.

6. I love Hello Kitty, and Asian food, boys, and fashion. Sometimes I think I should be Asian, even though I'm all white meat. 75% Irish, 25% mixed European, but I think I should be Asian. =) Or some other ethnicity considering my curves. =)

(Again courtesy to weheartit)

7. Last, but not least.... I am addicted to beauty vloggers on Youtube, specifically Michelle Phan and Elle & Blair Fowler. The other night I watched 2 straight hours of Michelle Phan's videos. I have a few favorites that I can and will recommend, and I'll put one in here at the end of this. I really like Blair's Braided Top Knot Tutorial , Elle's Beachy Summer Waves Tutorial , Elle's "Bangs in My Face" Tutorial , Michelle's Airplane Make-up Tips , and Michelle's Natural Beauty Tutorial. Some I've tried, some I have yet to but plan on it. I really enjoy make-up and hair and playing around with it to try out different looks, even if I never leave the house or dorm with it on. I'll be sure to share more of it in the future! And here's my absolute favorite one that I did try of Michelle's.


The last part is to tag 7 people, but I don't really have 7 people to tag! So if you want to do it, link over to your blog in the comments or leave it in a comment here! I'd love to read it! And I hope you liked mine! Happy New Year!

Peace, ♥ , and happiness in looking toward 2011! =)

A "Quick" Happy New Year to All of My Readers....

Warning: This video came out really quiet so you're going to want to turn the volume up. Also, I didn't write a script for this, so it is really from my heart and I had a few brain cramps. Please excuse these. Lastly, at the end, I look kinda silly... you've been warned.

As tomorrow is New Year's Eve...

and the last day of 2010 (which makes me sad, because what an amazing and truly blessed year 2010 was!) it's time for me to really make my New Year's resolutions. And although I'm not one to really keep them, this past year was different. I kept many of my resolutions for 2010 and I plan to feel the same way on December 30th 2011.

So this year to be a little different, I'm making some New Year's resolutions for my blog... here goes!

By December 31st 2011 I want to have accomplished the following in regards to "Confessions of a College Student" :

1. Be more honest. I want my readers and friends or whoever else reads this to really see the real me. I want you to know that I'm not always perfect and I have faults, that my life isn't easy, glamorous, or special. I want to put the real me out there boldy and not be afraid.

2. I want to reveal my blog to my facebook friends and be okay with being judged by what I write. It will take me a little while, just like it did with my friends, but 2011 is as good a time as any to try it out!

3. I want to blog more openly, and work a schedule out for it so that I don't always find myself posting things half thought through or saying "well, because I was lazy and forgot to post, here's a music video!" No. 2011 will be a year of organization for this place.

4. Lastly, I want to change it up a bit. This idea is big, and something I haven't completely thought through yet so, here it is, in all it's crazy spur of the moment glory. I want to try to bring in some guest writers or even stories from other people. I want this to be a blog where you get different perspectives on what it means to be a college student. I want to bring in more posts about music, new artists, affordable fashion, party advice, I really want to expand the horizons of this blog. I'm excited to see where this brand new, crazy idea will take me!

So those are my blog resolutions for the upcoming year. Hopefully all turns out well and I accomplish those and my other resolutions. What are yours this year? Share if you'd like! =)

Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

And now...

that I've dumped all of that out there... I can say you'll like my next Musical Monday.


Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

I'm still aching, still thinking, still craving, still yearning, well... you get the picture.

California is still on my brain. On my brain and in my heart. On my brain, in my heart, and nagging at me. You guessed it... I'm looking at schools again.

After being almost 100% positive that I was not going to transfer to a school in SoCal, I'm back at it again.

About a month ago, I firmly decided that I was putting no more of my eggs into the transferring to California basket. I was done looking into it, I had given up, thrown my hands in the air, white flag, the whole bit. I decided that I wasn't going to look into it any more to see if I could transfer because the programs were not up to par out there compared to SC. So as previously mentioned, I resigned to the possibility. I gave up, was done.

This week, as the cold has crept up all over me and the snow has been piling on, I am reminded of why I wanted to go in the first place. The weather, the people, and the weather. Most importantly, the weather. And just that for some unexplainable, unfathomable reason, I'm almost unhealthily obsessed with SD... you know, nbd.

So I'm sitting here since 8 pm EST (2 hours and 16 minutes later...) looking at schools again. And I've discovered that even though the schools are not up to par exactly with the program I'm in at SC, it is completely and totally do-able. You betcha! I could do it if I wanted to. Only problem is, now that I've decided I'm done with looking (or did decide and then reversed that decision, since you know, I'm awesome like that...) I've discovered that all UC schools only accept transfer applications for their FALL quarters and these applications are due in November... so I'm pretty much done for. Unless you know, I feel like transferring when I'm a senior at which point it would be pretty much pointless.

Confession of a College Student: So here I am again, feeling sorry for myself trying to find a way to make this all work again. But knowing my luck, it won't. Here I go again, getting my hopes up when in all probability they will be crushed again. And I can't help it. I know I'm where I belong academically, but is it where I belong physically, emotionally, geographically? I don't think so. Why should I stay here if I can gain the same degrees, a similar way, in a much more pleasing location??? I don't know. You tell me. So I'm debating, and praying, and thinking. Wish me luck, because I have no idea what I'm going to do.

Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

Happy...

one year anniversary to "Confessions of a College Student" !

This year this blog has done a lot for me. It has served as an easy place for me to share my thoughts, meet new people, and let my friends inside my head. It has been a blessing, and to think I started it at a time when everything in my life was really up in the air! Thank you all for reading (faithfully or not) I truly appreciate your interest in my boring, yet crazy life!

Peace, ♥ , and happiness!

News Flash: I AM BEAUTIFUL.

Warning: This is a personal post, it may get into some detail about personal things, walk away if you don't care to read about that. Also this is probably going to be the longest blog post EVER so get ready, settle in, have a snack, whatever you need to do, and know that I probably will take a few breaks in this post to do the same for myself.... with that said, let's begin!

News Flash: I think I'm beautiful. Inside. Outside. Completely gorgeous in every facet of the word.

You do too? Oh, you don't. Now that doesn't really surprise me because not many do either. Or at least it seems that way... and it's taken me a while to be able to admit it out loud.

In fact, it's taken me a while to finally come up with the courage to break this topic out and blog about something that happened last week that really upset me and depressed me. But I'm going to tell you (if there is a you...) because I need to get it out.

Last week I went to the gym with my brothers and one of their friends and while they played a couple rounds of 21 (a type of pick-up basketball game) I worked out. Simple enough. No harm done, and we even had some fun on the basketball court before we called it a night. All in all I would say that I had a fun time. Then came the ride home... where, as it was me and 3 immature boys, the topic of discussion on the 30 minute ride home became girls.

"Oh, so and so is so hot! BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH!" said one of my older brothers of a girl who I am friends with/have known my whole life. Now, yes, this girl is pretty, but I would never say she's knock-down drag-out gorgeous. Hot is not the word I would use to describe her. Partly because she is quite lacking in the personality department, but also because she just isn't the most gorgeous girl in the world, even when her face is plastered with the best make up. I love her to death, she's a good friend, but like I said, on a list of adjectives to describe her I wouldn't say hot is one of them.

So, of course, I open my mouth to refute the statement. "Well, she's pretty, but she's not what I would call hot..." This opened my world to statements about what exactly made her hot, which basically consisted of "her body" "her body" and you guessed it! "her body."

The rest of the ride I sat there in silence and disappointment to realize that this really is all that matters to guys, including those that I had thought were respectable and completely different than your average guy. I guess I was wrong, and this hurt me.

When we finally got home I got to talking to my dad about this, as he usually sides with me on matters such as this. But that night was different for he seemed to think differently than I did. Which is fine, my dad and I will not always see eye to eye about absolutely everything, but for this, I thought he would agree that it was pretty disappointing that all they were concerned about was this girl's body. He didn't. His excuse: "boys will be boys."

As true as that may be, I didn't think it was any kind of excuse at all. So I went to bed that night thinking that maybe this is why I've never had a boyfriend. Maybe this is why guys don't care about me, don't like me, don't seem to be attracted to me at all. It made sense, yeah, I'm awesome, I know that, you don't have to comment on this post and tell me that I'm a great person, because I know that. But all that talk had me thinking that maybe being awesome wasn't enough. Maybe I need to be a size 0 to get a guy, maybe I need to be smaller, have no stretch marks, no cellulite, get some plastic surgery, who knows? Maybe being averagely pretty and having an average sized body with a great personality isn't good enough, maybe I need to dress like a slut, push up bras, low cut shirts, stomach exposed...

And then reality struck me... for what? at what cost? why? I know I'm beautiful. I know I will never be a size 0. I know I don't need to dress like a cheap hooker. I know this because I'm worth a lot more than that. I'm worthy of respect, genuine interest, and love. I AM WORTH IT. If guys don't see that, then it's their loss... I may go the rest of my life single, I may never get a first real kiss. I may die alone, but I don't care about that. I care about being respected. All that matters to me is that I die knowing I never settled for less, I never lost respect, and I never got less than I deserved. If I die surrounded by friends and family who love me, then that's fine with me. At least I'll know my time here was not wasted. So here's my confession.

Confession of a College Student: I was depressed last week. I felt inadequate. I felt repulsive, ugly, and fat. I felt as though I would never find love. But then I was okay with myself because at a size 7 with all natural DD breasts, a curvy backside, and a little extra around my middle, I know I'm beautiful and some day someone will love me just the way I am. And because of that I'm not afraid to confess that I'm not looking for just some fling, I'm looking for real, true love, and the man I will spend the rest of my life with. I don't care if that makes me old fashioned, I'm not looking to waste my time with a guy who will leave me in 3 months. I want a husband, after I graduate college, and not directly after. I'm looking for someone real, someone amazing, and someone who will appreciate me for me, and if that's not out there then God doesn't want it for me. But I am fine with ME. I am amazing. Just the way I am. As seen below. =)



Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

Home.

I got home around 9:00 PM last night. I found out I'll be working over break, which will help me earn the money to go back to San Diego for spring break! =) And possibly out to Missouri and Baltimore to see some friends that it has been way too long since I last saw. Today I am just lounging around my house with my younger brother N because my mom is at work even though she was supposed to be home about a half hour ago. Tonight R has a basketball game and then we are going to come home to decorate the Christmas tree! Yay! I love this time of year, although not like summer, which I honestly can't wait for because, you guessed it! I AM GOING BACK TO SAN DIEGO! =)

Well that's all for now because I should go get dressed and ready for my day! =) (Even though it's 12:42 PM) lol

Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

PS- Be sure to check out my Tumblr!

And I totally had a new post coming for you guys via my Tumblr page, but it's down, so you'll have to wait. I'll link it up to this blog but I want to encourage you guys to keep checking over there for the latest! It's easier to post there especially from my phone, so I do more frequently than I post here, I usually post there multiple times a day. So be sure to check back often!

Bummed.

Welcome To My World. (On a Musical Monday)



"What's up Boston? Welcome to My World. We're gonna have a lot of fun tonight! I'm not gonna lie to you, 'cuz I never lie to my fans... I ate spaghetti before I performed, and I have a really big cramp, so I'm just gonna take a little break. You guys ever, uh, well you know I'm a regular person and I get cramps just like everybody else so..."

This is how it started. And it was a great beginning!

Well... I guess you could say that's stretching the truth a bit. Before Justin took the stage, three other acts performed. Burnham, Jasmine V (who is gorgeous and can sing!!!!) , and Sean Kingston. All were pretty awesome! And let's not minimize the reason we went in the first place...




And he was amazing.

We had floor seats, row 13, really really close to the stage. So close we could make out his face perfectly from our seats, (I'm nearsighted and didn't even need my glasses to see him clearly!) =)

He opened with Love Me, Bigger, U Smile, Runaway Love, Never Let You Go, Favorite Girl, and then One Less Lonely Girl and brought a girl up on stage who was literally in tears. He grabbed her face and mouthed, "Don't cry!" It was adorable.

During a costume change they played a video of a young Justin, Justin through the years, and played "Stuck in the Moment" through the video, it was so cute!

After the costume change it was Somebody to Love, showed us his Never Say Never Trailer, Never Say Never, then he got in a "hot air ballooon" and sang Up, That Should Be Me, danced for us a little bit, played the drums, and went backstage for another costume change while his background singers sang for us. Then he came back and sang One Time, Eenie Meenie with Sean Kingston, Down to Earth, and tried to trick us into thinking that the show was over. He even left the stage!

When he came back, he did the dougie, talked a little bit, tried to figure out what song we wanted to hear, he started Somebody to Love again, but eventually realized he hadn't done Baby! lol. One of his dancers was wearing a Celtics jersey because we were in the sacred TD Garden the place the Celtics call home, and he was from Boston originally. Justin even conceded that even though he's a Lakers fan, he respects the Celtics as a team. And that was about it. Minus the fact that we got lied to a couple times by people telling us he was going to greet fans after and we stood in the cold and rain to wait. But we did meet Burnham, even though we had no idea who they were... so all in all, an amazing night.

Enjoy the pics and video below and if you want to see more from the concert, click here to see more video!



Someone's excited!




"Up"




"Favorite Girl"


Lookin' our Bieber-est without lookin' like guys!



Although it's super blurry I had to post this one because it's the only pic I can credit to my skills. My camera does not have the capacity to snap a good photo while I jump, like Brett's. Also, this was my favorite of his dance moves!
"Runaway Love"



Happy Musical Monday, hope you enjoyed, if indeed you made it to the end!

Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

...and this.




It may not be Thanksgiving anymore, but I'm still thankful.

There's A Very Real Possibility...

That people don't know what they're talking about more often than not. Like a certain one of my friends who made a promise to herself and God that she really didn't intend to keep... which made it all seem like a huge joke. And then getting involved with a kid who was on his way to boot camp, and was supposed to go (according to her) like 2.5 months ago, but still hasn't left. Sorry, but the Marine Corps doesn't work that way... it just doesn't. She seems to think that she knows everything about the Marines when in actuality she knows nothing. It's stupid because she's been exposed to the life of a poolee (what recruits are referred to before they go to boot camp) for three months and she thinks she knows it all. For me, I've been in the life of a real, full blown Marine (no wait, multiple Marines, at least a dozen or more...) for upwards of 6 years and I still know that I don't know jack when it comes to the United States Marine Corps. She also calls herself a "Marine's Girl" when in fact, he will not be a Marine until the day he walks across the parade deck in his dress blues, which won't be until 3 months after he actually leaves for boot camp. As if that's not enough to make someone like me mad, she goes on. Next, she takes a photo from my sister in law's facebook page and uses it on her blog to say:

A) That my brother is her family friend.

B) That he was deployed for 6 months.

C) That she was very emotional about their reunion.

All of those things are huge lies. Firstly, she's never met him, in fact I find it odd that since he's her "family friend" she's not his facebook friend, but instead is his wife's facebook friend. Second, he was deployed for 3.5 months, not six. Third, she didn't even know he was gone until a couple of weeks after he got back because she never talks to me, therefore she couldn't have been emotional when he got back.

I'm not sure why it's upsetting me so much, but I needed to vent.

I just don't get people these days. You can't win. People are going to be stupid.

Confession of a College Student: Sometimes you're going to be super super super annoyed with your "friends" and their know it all attitudes. You have to cope. I'm learning to. I don't know why I'm letting it bother me, but I'm learning to let go. People are stupid. I am smarter than her in this sense. I just have to let her be stupid.

Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

Hello From The Bus Station...

I'm so ready to be on the bus home. I stayed up all night for the first time ever. Watching weeds. Yup. Good times. In case I don't get to post tomorrow (which is likely considering I forgot my laptop charger at school...) Happy Thanksgiving!!

Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

Sometimes...

I wanna go home. Like tonight. While my roommates K + C pack to head home tomorrow morning and afternoon respectively, I sit here doing work and dreading the fact that I can't leave until Wednesday morning, because I work tomorrow night. What's more is that my bus leaves at 8 AM which means that to be cautious and ensure a seat on the bus I need to leave my dorm at 5:30 AM. Yay... Getting up on time is not my strong suit. I am excited to go home though, I will admit, I just wish I could be on the 6 PM bus tomorrow.... =(

Confession of a College Student: Sometimes all you really want is to go home when everyone else can. Sometimes that can't happen. Sometimes you just have to live with what is and what will be and accept what comes. Other times you need to change your circumstances for the better. More often than not you just need to be a grown up and face reality. That's where I'm at.


Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

Musical Monday

Here we are, Musical Monday again. These song speak for themselves. No words necessary. Only 4 this week. Here we go:

"I Close My Eyes and I Can See A Better Day, I Close My Eyes and I Pray."

I think my Bieber Fever has hit an all time high. And while I realize that Justin Bieber is not the most worthy of a serious blog post, his new song is.

Best part of the AMA's tonight?




His performance. Of his new song. Pray.

Lyrics below, song to follow tomorrow on "Musical Monday" along with other heartfelt songs (and this time I made the post ahead of time so all I have to do is click post tomorrow.)

Confession of a College Student: Sometimes you spend more time looking at pictures of a 16 year old boy and listening to his music and feeling like a creep and a little kid than you should, but know it's okay to be immature in this sense. As long as you're happy, who cares what others think? Inspiration is key. Justin Bieber is my inspiration.

Ohh Ohh
I just cant sleep tonight. Knowing that things aint right.
Its in the papers, its on the tv, its everywhere that I go.
Children are crying.
Soldiers are dying
Some people don't have a home
But I know there's sunshine behind that rain
I know there's good times behind that pain, hey
Can you tell me how I can make a change
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray

I lose my appetite, knowing kids starve tonight.
And when I sit up, cause my dinner is still there on my plate.
Ooo I got a vision, to make a difference.
And its starting today.

Cause I know there's sunshine behind that rain
I know there's good times behind that pain, hey
Can you tell me how I can make a change
I close my eyes I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes I can see a better day


I close my eyes and pray
for the broken-hearted.
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the ones not breathing.
I pray for all the souls in need.
I pray. Can you give you give em one today.
I just cant sleep tonight. Can someone tell how to make a change?

I close my eyes I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray


Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

Do You Do What You Did When You Did With Me?

I missed a blog post yesterday =( But in my defense, I was spending my friend B's last day with her here before she left at 5:30 AM today. I miss her already. Except, you know... the messy part... hehe.

I slept until almost noon today. I needed it. My roommate C is home for the weekend so K and I are chillin' together.

I bought an unnecessary amount of Justin Bieber notebooks at Staples. In my defense, they were only $0.50 each.

I saw Ethan on video yesterday. I cried. I miss my partner in crime SO MUCH! I can't wait! I get to talk to him on the phone in less than 2 weeks, and I get to see him in less than 3 weeks!

I found a new iPhone case I want. It's purple. That has nothing to do with Justin Bieber. I promise. Or maybe it does...

Speaking of JBeebs, I found a poster I want. I'm 19, yes. Ashamed of my Bieber Fever? Never. And contrary to the spirit of JBeebs himself... sometimes I don't "Never Say Never" especially when defending my Bieber Fever. In fact, I just ordered the poster. It's almost 2' x 5' really big.

I also just ordered the iPhone case. I'm bad.

A concert post is coming soon, once I sort through all the stuff on my computer and figure out which photos and videos I want to post/ upload some of them to YouTube.

I'll stop wasting your time now, see you soon! =)

Peace, ♥ , and happiness!

"Feel Like Letting Go" -- Stream of Conciousness

Tuesday night's concert has me falling back in love with Sean Kingston, and Justin Bieber. Both in big ways.

My friend is still here until Saturday, and before then I might go insane. ME= organized with an OCD like passion. Her= leave things wherever.

Life is getting back to where it was pre-almost-meltdown 2 weeks ago.

6 days 'til I see my family.

2 weeks 'til Ethan graduates.

I got a letter from him today. He sounds good. I'm sending off 3 letters tomorrow so that he has ones to read during the crucible. Should be good.

Gotta write a poem to "Mother Earth" (what a crock!) in Spanish due tomorrow, no less than 21 verses WITH a title.

I don't want to go to classes tomorrow. I wanna be lazy.

I don't wanna get up at 4am to go to the airport with B on Saturday.

We must do what we don't want to. That stinks.

That's all for now!

Peace, ♥ , and happiness =)!

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Be jealous...

A real concert post is sure to come... so be ready. But for now, before class, this is my present to you.



Yes. He really was that close.

Until then I will enjoy the rest of my busy day and my visit with my friend!

Bill Bryson...

Doesn't know how to write so that a book flows.

Is not a scientist, and therefore should not be publishing scientific books.

Doesn't write coherently.

Makes his chapters too long and wordy.

Is sure to be my academic demise.

I Am...

Many things. But alas, tonight I am an insomniac. Sweet dreams are not coming so sweetly... As I listen to my happy Owl City and lay here typing this from my phone... I close my eyes and all I see is black. Nothingness. What am I supposed to see? Black. Nothingness, of course. But sleep will not come. Why? I don't know. I bet you don't either. I'm not usually the betting type but I'm fairly sure I would win that one. This is my brain. This is my brain on drugs. Just kidding , this is my brain at 2 AM. I bet you're wishing I would stop typing or that you could stop reading... But you can't because you're wondering if I plan on saying anything if importance here. I assure you, I can't say. I'm dead tired. I can't sleep. Brett comes in 3 days. Ethan graduates in 3 weeks. Funny how that works huh? Not really but I thought it was. I hope this is helping me to fall asleep but I don't really think it is. What else is new? I am envious. I want to dance. I wish we had a dance crew/team here. We don't. I might have found a way to dance still. I appreciate spell check on my phone. I've typed Yo like 7527738 times since I started this and then had to change it to to. I promise I might make a valid point eventually.



I STILL MISS SoCal.

I'm gonna try to go to sleep now... Wish me luck? Didn't think you would.

G'night John boy.

Peace, ♥ , and happiness! =)

Veteran's Day..

is definitely a day to be thankful for those around us who have served. But it's also a day to be thankful for others. Like the following people that I am thankful for today not only because they may have served, but because they continue to serve daily. Thank you so much to my brothers Joshua, Benjamin, Jesse, Ethan, my cousins Joel, Corey, my brother's girlfriend Nancy, my brother's friends Thomas, Corey, Jess, TJ, Luke, Doyle, and all the other countless servicemen and women who keep our country free!
