Okay just kidding. Kindof.

But I wouldn’t mind if someone just felt like giving me an unlimited credit card to spend soley on shoes. Haha.

Awww. Okay but seriously if anyone wants to make me the happiest muhfucka and you failed at getting any of the above items, I’ll always settle for all the seasons of Golden Girls on DVD. And I’m actually serious about that one hahaha. I love that shit.

Alright but in all seriousness it’s my birthday so it’s time to go out on the town! Peace and Love!

How to Make a Shared Room Cute (Sorority / Dorm Room)

Leave a comment


So, when you share a room with 3 other people and have to deal with 2 bunk beds and numerous dressers and everyone’s shit, you have to make it cute, especially for sorority recruitment. My sorority house is a Historical Landmark, so we can’t paint or do anything to make it look more modern because it has too look like it originally did. I have a love-hate relationship with this fact because I loveeee modern decor.Β Here’s what I did to make my little niche cute.

Keep checking back to see the rest of what I did for my room!

This seriously is the funniest shit, evveerrr!
Watch the whole thing.

Liquorville.

And that’s just fine with me. πŸ™‚
I’m so over any type of fears or judgements. Seriously, I’ve realized anyone can do anything they want to do. I’ve had such a fulfill-your-dreams kick lately, and I know that there are plenty of reason to not just go for it (whatever it is) in life, but I’m so over it! I just want to do what makes me happy, all the time.

Speaking of which, I heard that there is a GPS where Cartman is the voice. Someone pleeeeasseee find this and give it to me immediately.

And for the more sophisticated in the crowd, check out this article on the word “whatever”. It totally changed my outlook on the word. Nevertheless, I will still always quote South Park’s “Whatevveerrrr, I do what I want!!”

Life Lessons from Bro Tips

Leave a comment


To be fair to all of the bro’s out there, almost every guy I hang with it in a fraternity. That being said, there is a difference between a fratty bro, and a BRAH. Normally I’d say something entitled “bro tips” would have to be considered part of the lame bro category that TFM would make fun of, but some of them were actually inspirational. In my defense I found these on pinterest.

In case you are unaware of what “that guy” is, read this. Caution: if you are unaware then you are “that guy”. (Can be referring to a female). If not, read the article anyway, it’s hilarious! Via Thought Catalog. (Which I follow on Twitter and is increasingly becoming my favorite thing to read online).

Hahaha. I realize I’m burning myself with this one.

And finally,

πŸ™‚ Goodnight world.

So this past semester I really struggled with trying to figure out what I wanted to do about my major and I came to the conclusion that I was putting my artistic talents to waste by studying linguistics. Don’t get me wrong it’s interesting, just not enough to pursue that as a career for my whole life. And honestly I’m the type of person who could get interested in anything. But I want to be able to be passionate about something. I took summer classes at the Art Institute and realized that I love design. Learning photoshop and illustrator was like the most awesome thing I’ve done in college yet. It made me annoyed of all of the bs liberal art gen ed’s that the U makes people take to suck as much money out of us as possible. I decided to transfer. This made me have to become an “inactive” member of AOII, which I was super upset about because I lived so far from campus this year that I wasn’t nearly as involved as I wanted to be. I had mixed feelings about everything because I seriously love the U and I love greek life, but I wouldn’t have been able to transfer to the design school with the grades I got this year. So I transferred.

But apparently, since they go to school year round, summer classes aren’t an option–they are a necessity. I had taken a may term, but wasn’t intending on taking the summer term because I knew I’d be home in Milwaukee for Summerfest and a bunch of weddings. So since they started summer term yesterday, I had to un-enroll and re-enroll at the next term–IN OCTOBER. I’m not trying to wait that long considering I had to totally start from scratch. So the last few days have been extremely long and nerve racking trying to figure out what I wanted to do. My dad was really set on me staying at the U and majoring in Italian because I’m already almost done with all those requirements. I figured I’d do that and minor in art, and then go to Grad School for animation or design or whatever it is I want to do. I’ve been really determined since I was little to learn Italian and learn about the culture. I’m proud of my heritage and I want to be able to teach my kids about it in the future, because my family hasn’t done much in terms of preserving our heritage. So I guess that’s the plan, stay at the U and get a degree in Italian with a minor in Art. I’m not exactly sure what I’ll do with that, most likely teach. I might get into translating for businesses or something. Someone in my family translates for an oil company and they make bannnnk. It’ll be nice to do something like that for a few years before I really get into design. So yeah that’s the story. I’m so incredibly happy that I can still be active in AOII now, because I was really looking forward to getting to know everyone better, and participating more, getting a position, getting a lil sis, recruitment, and all of the things I didn’t really get the most out of this past year. Mostly I’m super excited to live in Animal House with a bunch of my sisters. I really wanted to live-in AOII at some point, but this will be just as fun!

Well that’s it for now, keep checking back. I’ve been stumbling for inspiration as to how to decorate my room once I get back up to school, so there should be some good stuff up soon!
