Wedding love

So thinking about my career choice I have been thinking a lot about weddings. Not just my own wedding that will someday happen, but weddings in general. I love the different ideas that people have for weddings and the unique way the couples show their love for one another. I know a few of my friends that are engaged and planning their wedding, some that are just engaged, and some that are about to get married.

One thing that I really have been thinking about is pre-wedding photos. The reason for this is because one of my friends just had hers, and I have been seeing a lot of really gorgeous photo ideas. One thing I want to get into here at LR is photography, something as a side thing to learn. I thought it would be fun to just look at some pre-wedding photos that I really liked.

Pre-wedding photos are meant to see the couple, portray them as who they are for their guests who will attend their wedding. Yes, you have serious ones, but there have to be some silly pictures as well. :)

And of course, you know me. There HAVE to be some Doctor Who ones that I have to show. I've already told myself that whoever I marry WILL be in at least two doctor who themed pre-wedding photos. One will be of him leading me into the TARDIS, and one will be of the Tom Baker scarf wrapped around both of us in a super cute way. :P

Loved this cake topper!!

A little something I found pretty cute. :)

Well that's about all I have for today. Have a wonderful rest of your day everyone!

Hugs and kisses

Scheduling for spring

So today I had my scheduling meeting with my advisor for spring classes. I have a lot of classes that I need to take for my major and my minor, plus core classes, so my advisor suggested i take summer classes at a local community college. So i am thinking to going to HACC this summer and take 2-3 classes then that are core classes that can be easily transferred.

I looked through available classes for the spring, and also emailed the Lebanon HACC admissions saying i wanted to take summer classes. I came up with this schedule for next semester and i hope it works for me.

Media Writing I 9:00-9:50
Aural Skills 11:00-11:50
Microeconomics 1:00-1:50

Harmony & Analysis I 8:00-9:15
Oral Communication 9:25-10:40
Web & Net Centric 10:50-12:05
FYE 1:40-2:55

Plus my organ and voice lessons, chapel and a cappella choir.

So that's my plan as of now for next semester. :)

Seriously GROW UP!!!!!

Okay so remember how I said I wished things would get better between my roommate and I after break? Yeah that didn't happen! So today was a decent day, classes went well, had a job interview at Bojangles, and met some new people. Things seemed to be going well, until I got back to my room... I walked in to see that my chair was moved and my blanket I have covering it was on my bed. Okay whatever, people sit in my chair. Then I noticed that my hair straightener was on the floor, there are pretzel crumbs all over the floor and on my desk, and my black rolling luggage was not on the floor where I left it. It was shoved into a shelf on its side. I HAVE BREAKABLE CHINA IN THAT SUITCASE!!! I even told my roommate that's why it was on the floor in the first place! So I pull it out, nothings broken thank god. SO then I am rearranging my closet and shelves to try and fit my suitcase somewhere... after an hour i FINALLY got it all worked out.

SO then I start to get ready for bed, I go to pull out a cami from my laundry hamper and can't find it. I had laid it on the top and my clothes were all shuffled around. As I am looking for my cami I find that PREZEL CRUMBS were mixed up into my clothes! WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?!?! This has me pissed off. So I go tell my RA but there's nothing we can do... so I hang out with a few friends, make tea and calm myself down. About midnight I am falling asleep so i go back into my room to go to bed. That's when I notice that my comforter is crinkled at the bottom, I have a bad feeling... I pull my covers over to find MORE GODDAMN PRETZEL CRUMBS IN MY BED!!!! They were on the mattress, in between sheets, in my comforter, THEY WERE FUCKING EVERYWHERE!!!!! OBVIOUSLY PUT THERE ON PURPOSE!!!! At this point I am about to kill someone... I go BACK to my RA and show her all the pretzel crumbs and she is shocked. She helped me to change my sheets and was telling me that she was going to the RD about all this THANK GOD!

I cannot believe this! I haven't done ANYTHING to my roommate to deserve being treated this way! I have been nothing but nice even after the first argument we had over rumors of something I didn't do! This is going too damn far... this is immature and stupid!!! So my RA tells me she and the RD are going to talk to my roommate alone and figure out why the fuck she is doing this, I wanna know as well! Is this something to just get me mad? Well it did, but I am not going to stoop to her level. I am going to be mature and be all smiles just to piss her off. :)

I'm on fall tour with the a cappella choir so this is time for me to cool off and have fun. I just can't wait to see what happens this week...

So this past weekend was my fall break and it was the BEST BREAK EVER!!!! I got to stay with my boyfriend and one of my best friends from home came down to visit! We had girl time and got our nails done, I cooked yummy butter shrimp, and Ben and I played matchmaker with one of his roommates and our PA friend. ;D

We also got to go to the Carolina Renaissance Festival and that was loads of fun! Got to wear my costume and walk around feeling totally awesome. Bought myself a claddagh ring and a bamboo wooden flute. I did spend more money this weekend than I ever wanted to... so my job hunting has become more frantic.

My gorgeous claddagh ring! <3

Me in my costume with Dead Bob. That's a show I went to see which was so funny!!

Dead Bob really liked the girls. ;D

Over all the weekend was amazing! I really don't wanna go back to school, I haven't been having happy times with my roommate... she has friends over late at night and I can't sleep. Hopefully things have calmed after break.

Guess that's all for now.
hugs and kisses

Eyeballs floating in head

So for the past two days I have been applying to every place I possibly could. I sent out applications to Taco Bell, Golden Corral, Bojangles, Checkers, and I'm still going. I just really hope I get a job even if it's fast food. I just need an income...

Adopting a kitten!!!

Soooooo one of my boyfriend's friends from college contacted me today and asked if I wanted to have a kitten. Him and his fiancee found a little white kitten abandoned behind a library and they can't keep him because of costs to keep an animal in their apartment. SO he asked if I wanted a kitten and I said yes! Only thing is I can't have a kitten in the dorm, sooooo I asked my boyfriend and his roommates to cat sit for me for the next six months until I go home for the summer.

I'm gonna have a kitten hopefully in the next three weeks!! :D

Job hunting...

Man I need a job... I really do. I came to college with $700 and now I have $298.55... that money disappeared fast... I've been trying to find work studies around campus and they are all filled up. So I started looking off campus and put in a few applications and haven't heard anything. It's probably because I don't have a car and I am in a touring choir. I really need a job though, so I started looking online and found a few things. I found, I remembered I have an ebay account and started that up again, i'm looking into other survey websites, and I found a book selling company that hires people to buy used books and then sell them to the company. SO i sent in an application for that, the employees get paid $25 an hour :)

I just really need to start making money. Anyone have any suggestions???

Support breast cancer awareness with yogurt

So this week is breast cancer awareness week. The sorority ZTA is hosting the week with events and support for finding a cure for breast cancer. Today was the day that they were hosting a yogurt eating contest. Yoplait has pink lids all during the month of October and if you save the lids they go to finding a cure. So ZTA bought a BUNCH of yogurts and held this contest. As I was on my way to lunch I saw it and decided to go for it. It was so much fun! I now have a belly full of yogurt to support a good cause. :)
All these, plus one other is all the yogurt I ate

I am on the end listening to what is going to happen. We had to eat as much yogurt as we could in a matter of three minutes.

Removing the lids which is the whole purpose for doing this :)

Ready... Set... EAT!!!!!


I was eating so fast that, at one point, peach yogurt fell down my shirt

On my fifth thing of yogurt! I ate all eight and came in second place by two seconds. It was fun but my belly is not too happy with me for eating so many calories in so little time. lol

The future is looking bright

So today was the first meeting of the communication club at LR. I decided to be a part of this club since it sounded like a good idea as a PR major, and boy was I right to do this! Today we were discussing fundraising ideas that we could do so.... WE CAN GO TO COMMUNICATIONS CONVENTIONS IN SAN FRANCISCO THIS SPRING!!!! Every year there are communications conventions and this spring there is one in San Francisco that we are trying to go to, and next fall it is in New Orleans. There are also opportunities to work behind the scenes of a sports game and see what happens behind the camera. So we could go to NCAA basketball games, local soccer games, maybe even a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park! XD

I am getting so excited for this major that I want it to be further int he year so I can get into my communications classes and just dive into this club. I'm so excited!!! :D

hugs and kisses

When life gets you down, try to make something good out of it. When life gets you down a second time, there's something wrong with the people in life...

So when I thought things were getting better it seems I was wrong. Everyone I talked to on my dorm floor suddenly started ignoring me, friends who I would talk to before the whole roommate issue are now BFFFFFFs with my roommate and are totally ignoring me. I don't know what is going on?? I am soooooooo confused! Did I "talk shit" about someone again? Is my roommate trying to turn everyone against me?? Am I so unlikable that people don't even wanna be around me?? This is so confusing! It's even more confusing cause one of my friends didn't like my roommate at all and now they are like, best friends. WHAT THE HELL????????

I was hoping to come to college with good experiences with people and to have a good time. I didn't want this to be like high school! This sounds like something that would happen in high school!!!!! I didn't come here to be ignored and outcasted from the world, I came here to make friends and get a good education. 

I also came here so I can SLEEP! This morning my roommate turns on her light and fucking HAIR DRYER a half an hour before I had to get up. WTF?!?!?!?!? I'm OBVIOUSLY sleeping, I don't do that to her! I keep the lights off so she can sleep, the only thing I do is open the blinds so I am not walking in the dark. I don't turn on hair dryers, I don't bang around the room, I don't do anything like that!

Why is this happening...

Newspaper updates!

So I am now officially a part of the university paper The Rhynean!! :D I did two articles for October and I am currently working on the three I have for November. I have one done but I need to work on the other two, the drafts are due no later than next week but I totally got this.

I am now also starting to get more involved in photography. It's something I have always really loved but never got into much, so I decided why not? Let's do it in the paper! Now I have my camera on me always so I can practice my picture taking. I hope I can do a good job on it. I really want to become more versatile with what career I am going into. So if I can write articles, take pictures, learn how to do layout, and brush up on my speaking skills then I am set!

Anna over and out xoxo

So today I decided that I was going to rearrange my side of the dorm. Things are much better with the roommate and we thought about lofting our beds to make more floor space. Since I had nothing else better to do today I decided to loft my bed. It took a while and wasn't easy but I got it done. I love how we have more room and I like where my desk is now (under my lofted bed). The only thing I don't like is the whole bed shakes when you get in or even move around a little bit, that worried me slightly. We will see how it goes tho, I do like the set up now though.

On another note I am going to an A Cappella Choir party with everyone in the choir. We eat, talk, have fun, just get to know each other. I'm excited for it. :) One of the girls even did my hair and makeup. So I'm all prepared for a fun night with the choir.

Hope everything is going well with you and have a wonderful day!

Thinking of the future

So today I have really been thinking about my future, my future in my major. I am a Public Relations major here at LR and am only taking one Communications class this semester and I am really loving it. I am also a member of the university paper, The Rhynean, and also trying to get my own radio show for the radio station here. I am getting so active in the communications field and it is really getting me excited.

I've started thinking about future goals that I have for this career, I would love to be a wedding planner so I have been looking into just a general event planning job for when I first get out of college. I have already made a connection with someone in NYC about getting me a job possibly every summer, AND an internship. I would LOVE to start out in the city, New York is the place to go if I want to get a good leg up in PR. My connections says she could possibly get me into Brides Magazine!!!! :D How amazing would that be??? FREAKING AMAZING IS WHAT!!!!!

I am just so over excited about this that I don't think I can stay still. I need to get core curriculums out of the way before I can really hit on the Communications classes for my major. I need to space them out as best as I can and try to get them done early so by the time my junior and senior year rolls around I will be able to focus on my major and minor.

Well that's all I really have for today. I just wanted to share that info with you. Hope your day is goign well!

Anna xoxo
